Knowles Monday during the latter's visit to the city as a part of the Paint-up program. Seeing the youngsters lined up on the sidewalk, the governor ordered his driver to stop and he got out of the car and shook hands with each and every one of them. One of the youngsters asked Knowles, "I thought there was going to be a parade?" The governor laughed heartily, patted the boy on the head and assured him there would be one. Across the street from the school, members of the Hurley High School Student Council were still busy painting the home of Miss Agnes Hoye. The governor then chatted with them for awhile before leaving for the parade. (Daily Globe Photo) New Command Post for NOR AD Is Being Built in Mountain By FRED S. HOFFMAN MOUNTAIN, Deep inside this CHEYENNE Colo. (AP) — granite mountain, technicians have started installing secret new electronic gear that will enable U.S. commanders to react within seconds to any attack on North America. This is the final phase of a four-year, $89-million effort to build an atom-proof command post for the North American Air Defense Command. The NORAD command post now is above ground, about five miles away in Colorado Springs, and is vulnerable to an atomic knockout. By early 1966, after the specially designed computers and other fancy new equipment have been checked out, the U.S. and Canadian military staff will take over the undergroud Combat Operations Canter. There, these keenly trained experts will maintan a 24-hour vigil for signs of impending attacl: by missile bomber or satellite. If attack should come, the NORAD commander in chief and his battle staff would "button up" behind a brace of 15-ton steel blast doors and call the shots for the defense — sending •INCC 18B6 for FASHIONABLE COMFORT!

Air Force officers claim this complex of steel buildings restng on 937 unique antishock springs and wedged into a network of tunnels beneath about 1,000 feet of solid granite — would be safe from all but perhaps a direct hit by the biggest hydrogen warhead imaginable. The engineers bent special efforts to making certain there is continuous communication between the Combat Operations Center and the outside world — a serious deficiency in the present above ground command post whose communications lines are exposed to possible interruption. All phone cables are buried in steel conduits several feet below ground. They are embedded in granite crete, steel and copper. The normal 300-man staff manning the center would swell to about 800 in a "button up' emergency. To prepare for this, the Cheyenne Mountain complex has been designed as a sort of underground town-with the capability to sustain its population for about 30 days without outside contact. Inside the windowless walls of the 11 interconnected rectangular steel buildings are dormitories, mess halls, food storage areas, offices, computer rooms and the main theater where the battle staff would assemble. The center has its own seven- room hospital, with separate places for major and minor surgery, a recovery room, laboratory, dental clinic and other facilities. There is nothing outside the »,565-foot-mountain — "a tough old lady," one officer called it — to indicate what is inside. The entrance, reached from a road winding up the mountainside, looks like the mouth of a railroad tunnel. The entrance tunnel runs for about a quarter-mile inside the mountain before reaching the main opening the command center. The tunnel is curved, in 'part to lessen blast effects. At this inner approach to the center, crews will emplace the giant f eight-inch-thick blast doors spaced about 50 feet apart. One of the motor-driven doors will be kept closed at all times. In all, contractors supervised by the Army Engineers blasted about a million tons of granite out of the mountain to create the three miles of tunnels. It took a million pounds of dynamite to dp that job. Information is the lifeline of the North American Air Defense Command. Without the latest, most complete and fastest information, the NORAD com- mandor would be gravely hampered in reaching what could be life-or-death judgments. He must be able to communicate those judgments to Washington, the Strategic Air Command, and to Ottawa, Canada's capital. Into the combat operations center must flow an unending stream of data on aircraft approaching North America, on suspicious submarines off the coasts, on satellites whirring overhead, on readings from the giant m i s s i 1 e-warning radar screens. The high-speed computers gobble up this data, along with inputs reflecting the degree of Communist military readiness, deployments of Red forces and even political factors. In as short a time as 11 seconds, the electronic brains can digest this pret it and ;wo screens facing the NORAD commander in his theater at the heart of the underground complex.

Men of Missile Battery Learn War Is Boring By HAL BOYLE HILL 327, South Viet Nam (AP) — They keep a lonely vigil on a hot and dusty hill for a meeting with the enemy that may never come. They are the four officers and »7 enlisted men of a U.S. Marines Hawk missile battery. They are learning the hard way that war more often is boring and monotonous than dangerous or exciting, and that the ;hing you do most in any war is simply to wait. The Job they have to do Is to knock out of the sky with their ground-to-air missiles any enemy planes that threaten the huge Da Nang air base. The men have great confidence in Iheir weapon. In training for their present mission they found the Hawks effective in bringing down drone aircraft used as targets at their base on Okinawa. "They'll knock the hell out of anything that can be sent against us over here," said the battery commander Capt. Everett Cowley, 33, Quincy, Mass. The battery, whose theme song is "On Top of Old Dusty," is emplaced on the flat peak of one of the highest hills in the Da Nang area. The road up it is one long river of hubcap-deep dust. It isn't that way all year round, however. When the rainy season starts the road will become a river of mud. The view from the top of Hill 327, where the long slender Hawk missiles nest in their launchers like poised hornets, is hauntingly beautiful. In one direction stretches the watery waste of the South China Sea over which white cloud towers float in slow and timeless majesty. Between the sea and the base of the hill lie the city of Da Nang and its vital air base. In the other direction lie a valley and rugged hills from whose green hell Marine patrols are tortuously and painstakingly flushing the tenacious Viet Cong. The loveliness of the hills hides the menace of the ambushing enemy. The battery's position conceivably is vulnerable to mortar attack. It is guarded by sandbags and barbed wire and company of Marine infantrymen. But the missilemen themselves also pull sentry duty, man outpost holes, and pile up more sandbag barricades. men had-had many iriterestinf experiences. He smiled wryly and said. "Well, once we saw a king _. ,_ ^ .cobra snake, and in six weeks The heart of the battery is its we have piled up 50,000 sand- small, well-hidden command j bags. This job isn't romantic — central. The darkened room is just scenic and necessary.
