Six. Logansport, Indiana Pharos-Tribune Court Acts in N.Y. Apportionment WASHINGTON (UPI)—The Supreme Court today directed a lower court to reexamine a challenge to the distribution of New York's state legislature. It was the third time this session it has taken such action in an apportionment case. As in the previous cases, New York's allocation of state Senate and Assembly seats had been protested on grounds that rural voters were given an unfair advantage in representation over city residents. On March 26, the Supreme Court—in a landmark decision— ruled in a Tennessee case that such challenges should be consid' ered in federal courts. Since then, the court has ordered a lower court to reconsider a taxpayer suit objecting to rcapportionment in Michigan.

Minor damage resulted in a collision of two cars at 7:55 a.m. Monday at the entrance to Logansport state hospital just off Indiana 25.

Civil Defense Opinion on N-Explosion WASHINGTON (UPI) - The government has no hope of preventing "tens of millions" of deaths in blast areas in the event o'f an all-out nuclear attack. What it wants to do, according ,o the nation's civil defense chief, s to have fallout shelters for people who are located where here is only fallout radiation, Nothing can be done for those close to the explosion, he said. Assistant Defense Secretary Steuart L. Pittman, who is in charge of civil defense, said 'there is probably no shelter construction that we know of that is practical and within reach" which would save people in the immediate area of a nuclear blast. "We don't hope to save the lives of the millions of people who will be exposed to the direct effects of the explosions," Pittman said in a television interview. Although there would be tremendous loss of life in a nuclear attack, Pittman said, a "complete" fallout shelter system would, save from 40 million to 120 million persons from death by fallout. The government, he said, was placing "very little reliance on home shelters as a solution to the problem the country faces of providing a place for everyone to go" in the event of nuclear attack. "We are depending on bringing into operation shelter space in large buildings, which will take care of large groups of people," he said. "This will answer the problem of most of the people in cities and towns who could nol afford to build a home shelter. It will also be the preferred solution." Read the Want Ads!
