Two types of wooden shelters, a lean-to and a corner room, were constructed in the basements of both test houses. The houses were located about two-thirds of a mile and a mile and a half from ground zero the point directly below a 300-foot tower from which the explosion was set off. The atomic blast was equal to some 15,000 tons of TNT about 25 per cent less than the A-bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War II. Shelters Survive In the house closest to ground zero, the shelters remained virtually intact despite collapse of the first and second stories. The NLMA report saul the test indicated that under similar conditions persons inside the shelters would be safe from falling debris and flying missiles. An important factor here, according to the report, was the manner in which the first and second stories of the house collapsed. The lumbermen's association explained that the resiliency and integration of parts in the wood frame construction prevented the upper floors of the house from crashing into the basement in a compact heap of heavy rubble. Debris from the wood frame house was distributed so that the basement shelters were spared the burden of a single curshing load. The second wood frame house, located more than twice the dis tance from ground zero, remained upright and there was no debris of r5 -Tl If It WS4M I The fine points of organization for the home builders' section Wool Th WMIIU,liy 1 ,uu" TT - of the Community Chest drive, part of Building Trades Week, is explained by Harold Promensk, right, section chairman, to Art Newton, left, and J.

Here again, the lumbermen declared, the wooden shelters proved they would afford effective protection and permit easy rescue. The cost of materials for the wooden lean-to, the easiest of the shelters to construct, is estimated at about S40. Materials for the corner room are figured at about S95. Both may be constructed with the simplest hand tools. Little Floor Space The wooden lean-to is made of two-by-sixes spaced five inches apart and running at about a 45 degree angle from the wall to the floor of the basement. The two-by-sixes are covered with one-inch boards. Very little floor space is required since the shelter needs to be only eight feet long to accommodate four persons. The base of the shelter should be approximate ly four feet from the basement wall. It is suggested that the lean- to be built against the wall facing the most probable target area. The basement corner room, a box-like structure independent of the basement itself, has walls and roof of wood. Measuring about six feet square, it will accommodate four persons and is recommended for the intersection of the two basement walls nearest to the probable target area. The corner room, which affords more comtort ana space tnan tne lean-to, has an additional advant age in that it may be used for storage purposes when there is no danger of atomic attack. Detailed instructions for the building of basement A - bomb shelters are available from the Federal Civil Defense Administration. Foreign News Briefs MESCHEDE, Germany ( Siegfried von Der Burg, 19, was one of four persons selected by lot Sunday to go up in a balloon. As the balloon descended, Siegfried leaned from the gondola and accidentally touched a high tension wire. He was electrocuted. The pilot landed the balloon and the other three passengers safely. By SAUL PETT NEW YORK tffi This is national dog week, and if you don t get the idea, you not the dog may-end up needing a lawyer. For asevery year goes by, there are more state laws ard more judicial decisions around the country to protect the 22 million dogs in this country from people. Almost every state, according to the Gaines Dog Research Center, now makes it a criminal offense to kill a dog simply because he trespassed on your property. Just this year Arkansas joined several other states in makirg it illegal to "dump" or abandon dogs along roads and other places. Law Explained In Maryland, you now can be fined up to $500 and sent to jail for a year for the "unlawful killing, maiming, or poisoning of the dog of another persons, or of exposing poison or ground glass with the intent that it shall be taken by dogs." In Louisiana, not long ago, the state court of appeals ruled that the owner of a dog who runs into pedestrians while answering his owner's whistle is not responsible. Dogs, the court ruled, have the same right as people to bump accidentally into pedestrians. The California Court of Appeals has held it is not the fault of a Great Dane if he bowls over a small woman in leanirg on her. Small women, the court ruled in effect, should know better than to let Great Danes lean on them. In New York State, it is a misdemeanor to clip a dog's ears. You also can be fined up to $1,000 and given up to a year in jail for starting a fight, between dogs or between other animals. And this law, too is on the books: "A person who wilfully throws, drops or places, or causes to be thrown, dropped or placed upon any road, highway, street, or public place, any glace, nails, pieces of metal or other substance which might wound, disable or injure any animal, is guilty of a misdemeanor." In New York City, you can be Hughes' Flying Boat Is Damaged SAN PEDRO, Calif. (.TiHoward Hughes has disclosed that a break of an earth dike at the harbor has caused damage of more than five million dollars to his gigantic wooden flying boat, the world's largest airplane. The flying boat has been under experimental construction more than 10 years under a government contract. It has a wing span of 320 feet and is 219 feet long. The plane weighs more than 200 tons and its tail is as tall as a two-story building. It is designed for a passenger capacity of 700. The earth dike had been constructed by a dredging company to retain material pumped from the harbor bottom. The hangar of the eight-engine plane was flooded with thousands of tons of mud, silt and water. fined $10 and-or sent to the clink Ifor 10 days for stealing a dog. j In Huntington, W.Va.; last month, a man was sentenced to six months in jail and fined S10 for kicking a puppy to death. The man said the pup nipped his son and himself but the court held that was not suitable provocation. While there are more statutes designed to protect dogs, some states hold that dogs, like people, should live up to the letter of the law. In Quincy, Mass., a gardener died, bequeathing 55.000 for the old age care of his dog. The state tax commissioner ruled that the dog must pay a state inheritance tax, plus an annual tax on any income from the balance. 465-Pound Man Dies In West Virginia HUNTINGTON, Wr. Va.
