Mike Soys He'd Take UN Job LIFE IN A FALLOUT SHELTER Like Crossing Ocean .. . Creeping Fogginessf By JOHN HOWE of Th Journal I "ducked" that is why. I'm here. Instead of running I dropped underground after hearing the steady three-minute alert blast of sirens giving warning of an enemy attack. I piled food and clothing from upstairs in the shelter. Whin tin sirens began wailing I lay down like a dog tinder a table In the basement and waited for th blast Then I entered t h helter.

The above is what I should have done according to EMO pamphlets, had there been a real warning and t had decided to remain in the city. LIKE IN A SHIP Living m this government-recommended fallout shelter Is like crossing th ocean in a tourist-class ship and not coming out of your cabin. Strangely enough, except for the driving of distant engines and the rocking and pitching, nearly everything about the shelter makes me feel I am in a ship. Perhaps this is becausrt of the cramped but compact size of the cabin, the two-tier bunks, the lack of windows or any form of natural illumination, and the almost languid quietness indicative of the absence of any sort of life outside the room. Even the length of, ttm crossing the Atlantic is comparable to the seven days I will be here. The shelter reminds me of a ship in another way a way that may have serious consequences' during a real attack and fallout onslaught. Turn to Page t LIKE VANCOUVER (CP) Lester B. Pearson, th man who once gained an .international reputation as Canada's spokesman in the United Nations, said Friday he'd take the job of secretary-general of the world body If it was offered to him. "It's a hypothetical question, but of course I'd accept," the National Liberal Party leader told a press conference. "I don't think any man would refuse a job like that." "But there isn't a chance." Mr. Pearson.' who once was president of the UN General Assembly, said the UN's present problem of appointing a new secretary-general is going to be "a tough one to solve. If Russia's "troika" proposal for a three-man secretary- generalship were accepted, it would "mean the end of the UN as en effective world organization." He felt the best way out or the dilemma would be through some "Afro-Asian candidate acceptable to the Russians and there were a number of such men of stature at the UN. But he would have to be a man uncommitted either to NATO or the West. "This is the way the Russians work," Mr. Pearson said. "They'll fight for troika knowing they can't get it. Then they'll give in and get a lot more concessions than they are entitled- to get . . . probably some man they feel they can manage." AIRLINER 1N TROUBLE EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE. Calif.
