The committee named included D. G, Keoppel. Dale Weisbrod and Gerald Voigt. v Approximately 50 attended the •public meeting at which Mayor Shierk spoke on civil defense. The mayor, a member of the .state Civjl Defense Advisory .Committee, reports that Omaha is , the prime target because the ..Strategic Air Command is located there. Because of this we ,in. this area are in the path of ;the heaviest fallout of the entire ; United States. , ,'.:.' of attack we would rhave from three quarters to six ' : hours to prepare before the fall- v.but reaches us. Our number 1 [protection is therefore fallout -shelters Which would be used "for at least two weeks. In the .two weeks time most of the fallout would decay. Contrary to Mrs. Khrushchev's recent statement, Central Intelligence reports that 60% of Russia's population is protected whereas' we are lucky if 5% of the Americans are. The more fallout shelter* there are the less chance there is of war.' • /••'• ;Mf we'were attacked now we .Would lose 85 to 90 percent of our population. Dr. sfelerk aug-. gests that' each family make a Plan of tfctfbn' in' case of attack tp 4vo|d panic and always have .a two week supply of food "and Water on hand. For protection from radiation one needs 8 }rjch- es of concrete block qr 1 foot of earth or sand bags, or 16 inches of tightly packed paper. The best place for £ shelter is in the basement because the house offers some promotion and the natural basement ventilation .colild 'be used. Also after a perio'd of time it would be possible lo leave the shelter and, go into the rest of the basement for an hour After the talk D'r. Shierk held a and answer period.

Mrs. Walker and Miss Strople left Los Angeles and in five hours were in Hawaii. After their two hour stopove they were in flight for ten hour to Tokoyo, Japan. .Mrs, Walke says Tokyo was much like city in Americq with large build ings and lots of traffic except fo many bicycles and the fact tha they drive on the left side of thi road. Because the stores have meta dooj-s for protection agains thieves and typhoons no shopping can be done after 9 p.m. or on holidays. The hotel service was marvelous. The hotel dining "oom had elegant service with he food served in silver or china dishes and six or seven waitress- is per table. American, European nd Japanese food can be founo, n Tokyo restaurants. The ladies spent a week on the 0 mile by 60 miles island of Okinawa. The base and homes re all niodern and the service men's wives can have a Japanese maitj three days a week for one dollar. In Hong Kong the ladies qund either real wealth or so 3ooj- many didn't have homes, it he poor did have homes there were 10 to 12 people living in a 0 x 10 room. There arc crowded shops ail over the city where things can be purchased very cheaply provided one can get a certificate to enter the USA with it. The hotel however was beautiful with all extra services free. All in all Toyko and Hong Kong were like another large city with mpnslons, wealth and business districts versus its poot shacks, crowded streets, narrow alleys and dirt. , T-11 T T ~" --."—o~"> =«•«.- »iv-»v,ic 4viau»e, a aiuaeni at etary, Jill Jensen, treasurer; and -State Teachers College, Cedar aylvia Sullivan, historian.
