Cincinnati By NBA Service CINCINNATI — (NBA) — There's a haunted building ri^ht in the heart of this city. 'Human beings are fearful of stepping inside. It's locked tight. No shriekers are these spirit*, »nd no chain rattlers, but they are not roundless. The fearsome force* prove their presence by a steady clickity-click. . For this stately, valuable stale- ture is alive with deadly radiation. Until some way Is found to bring an end to the streams of click* on a iciger counter, it will remain in an ••unfit" classification by the Board '•f Health. Members call it "the hot- :st thing in the atomic age." BacK'in 1951, when Keleket X-Kay Inc. was operating a lab In the building, a tiny platinum capsule ol radium exploded.. Workmen were speedily decontaminated. It was the aftermath, not the incident, \vhich was momentous. To clean up. a number of arti- ?!-s in the building had to be sent j Oak Ridge for burial. These included a brand new auto. For a while it was thought the area was safe after a crew of Federal experts did a mopping-up operation. Later it was found that workmen walking back and forth had spread the radium dust to every section of the building. It then became the haunted struc- :ure and it* ghost began romping throush the courts as well. Still unsettled is a suit by Keleket for laX).- COO filed against an Insurance company. This Is an important one since it will set precedents as to damages covered by insurance in case* of radio-active contamination. The landlords, meanwhile, have sued Keleket or J75.COO because their building Is "unfit for occupancy and UM." But the spook still has the upper hand. Old Romance Is Revived JEFFERSON CITY, Mo.
