Everyone else could be threatened by atomic fallout. Most of these people could be saved if they had made adequate provisions for fallout protection. Everyone, even those far from a likely target, would need shelter from fallout In the event of an attack the booklet said. It pointed out that fallout from one test explosion spread over 7,000 square miles of the Pacific Ocean. It emphasized that even if the enemy confined his attacks to our retaliatory bases, radioactive fallout from enemy nuclear bombs would threaten life in the entire country.

Philpott, district director of Internal Revenue, and E. W. Lehcn, manager of the district social security office. Workers who earn $50 or more during a calendar quarter are entitled to social security credits for that period. The next quarterly report is duo by July 31. The law requires the employer to report cash wages ;md social security tax due on these wages to the District Director of Internal Revenue at Springfield. Additional information may be obtained at the social security office at 543 E. Broadway, Alton. A survey in Australia indicated that seven out of 10 people 1 think some African natives should be invited to study in Australia you And the fallout win cut down the amount of radiation that reaches you, the brochure Bald. Sufficient mass will make you safe. Concrete or bricks, earth or sand will afford protection by absorbing radiation. The booklet contains building plans for five basic fallout shelters. One of the five — the basement concrete block shelter — has been designed specifically as a do-it- yourself project. Solid concrete blocks are used to built it. Most people probably would need the assistance of a contractor to build any of the other four types. The least expensive shelter described as the basement concrete block shelter can be built for about $150 to $200. An outdopr, above ground double-wall shelter also may be built with concrete blocks. Most people would prefer to have a contractor build one of this type. It could be built in regions where rock or water is close to the i surface, making it impossible to i build an underground shelter. Materials lor a double-wall above ground shelter would cost about $700 and contractors charges ! would be additional. This type of 'shelter would provide almost i absolute fallout protection. j Pre-shaped corrugated metal I sections or pre-cast concrete can •be used for shelters above or i below the ground. They form effective fallout shelters when mounded over with earth. Materials for this type shelter would i cost about $700. : An underground reinforced concrete .shelter can be built by a contractor for about $1,000 to Jl,i 500. depending on the type ol i entrance*" the brochure said. iThis type of shelter could be add- Jed to a home under construction at a cost of only $500.
