'Big Voice' from Sky
May Warn of Attack
' A “big voice” from the sky may
some day provide the warning and
Information which will save fam
ilies in rural America from the ef
fects of nuclear attack.
No farmer in the fields, or
housewife shopping, or child on the
way home from school would be
beyond danger warnings with an
air-plane-mounted transmitter am
plifier now under development by
sound specialists and the Federal
Civil Defense Administration.
Unlike sirens, the flying public
address systems would not only
warn of impending danger, but
could be used to give directions
on how to protect against it. For
example, .deadly radioactive fall
out drifting downward from a
blasted target could be charted.
People in its path could be warned
to evacuate or stay clear of any
danger area.
The voice warning systems
would be effective in alerting
people quickly to the complex
dangers of biological warfare. It
would be ideal to spread the
word of an approaching torna
do, flash flood or similar local
ized natural hazard.
Airborne Paul Reveres with
“big voice” equopment also would
help to overcome the limitations of
Conelrad, the system of emergency
radio broadcasting which, of
course, cannot alert those beyond
the reach of a radio receiver or in
areas where Conelrad stations do
not provide coverage.
FCDA officials are quick to add,
however, that both sirens and
Conelrad are basic warning de
vices.

r tions Office, points out that “the
[ siren still gives more sound per
■ dollar than any other system.” A
voice warning system, however,
provides voice information not ob
. tainable with sirens, but essential
, in any evacuation of people,
i Conelrad also is extremely val
i uable, Miller says, because radio
■ gives a degree of blanket coverage
■ unobtainable at such low cost with
any other system.
In addition to airplane-mount
ed units, portable loudspeakers
could be installed on trucks, at
key intersections or downtown
areas to route evacuation traf
fic and pedestrians to safety.
Battery - operated megaphones
would be used extensively by
civil defense workers.
Fixed PA systems also would be
installed in rural reception areas
near large cities to give instruc
tions to the vast number of evac
uees from target cities.
To find out exactly how many
units of each type of PA equip
ment are needed in different types ,
of cities and how much it would ,
cost, FCDA is planning applica- <
tion studies next year in a pre- :
dominantly industrial city and a
I residential-business type city, •
among others.
* H* #
Preliminary studies indicate the
cost of a voice-sound system would
run about 20 to 30 cents per per- j
i son. Federal money is available
now on a matching fund basis to
, install such equipment when cities
; and towns request it.
The aerial “big voice” still
awaits additional development
of a practical loudspeaker sys
tem employing transistors in
stead of vacuum tubes. Six dis-

Jaycee Nativity
The Christmas Activities Com
mittee of the Phoenix Junior
Chamber of Commerce have erect
ed a new enlarged nativity scene
on the northeast corner of Central
Avenue and McDowell, on the new
Phoenix library grounds.
For the past three years, the
ferent firms are now working
with FCDA on this project.
FCDA officials point out that
transistor speaker systems eventu
ally would be cheaper to build and
maintain, more adaptable to
weather and last longer.
Because of their much lighter
weight and lower power consump
tion, they could be used on heli
copters or light planes, which are
cheaper to buy and operate, and
are able to fly closer to the
ground for greater audibility.

Scene Enlarged
Jaycees have erected their nativity '
scene on a ground level platform.
This year it is built on a 38 ft high
elevated stage, with four new
scenes added. The nativity which
has been portrayed is elevated to
the top of the structure, and the
four new scenes —the three shep
herds, Mary and Joseph arriving in
Jerusalem —the Three Wise Men
—and Mary and Joseph being re
fused admittance to the inn—are
erected below and in front of the i
nativity. Over 8500 watts of col- i
ored lighting were used. The scene i
is lighted each night until New :
Years.
Earl Hamm, a member of the '
Jaycees, designed this new en- 1
larged scene and personally created
the sets, doing all of the art work i
and painting.

Artichokes Known
For Delicate Flavor
Artichokes, known the world
over for their delicate flavor, must
be prepared properly to be really
appreciated.
Mrs. Isabell Pace, Maricopa
County home demonstration agent,
offers several hints for preparing
and serving the vegetable at its
best. The directions are simple.
First remove about one inch
from the top. cutting straight
across with a sharp knife. Do the
same with the base, leaving a short
stubi Now, pull off any loose leaves
ardflnd tke bottom and cut off the
tip of each artichoke leaf with scis
sors.
Cook artichokes in boiling water
to which salt has been added. To
season, add a small garlic clove,
one thick slice of lemon, and for
each bud one tablespoon of olive or
salad oil. If desired, a small piece
of bay leaf can be included.
Cover the pan and boil the arti
chokes from 20 to 45 minutes.
When leaves can be easily removed
or the stalks stuck with a fork,
the vegetables are done. Lift them
out carefully, cut off stub, and
allow to drain. Serve artichokes
upright on a plate with melted but
ter or mayonnaise.
New Valley Bank
Office In Kingman
Contract for construction of a
new Valley National Bank office
in Kingman has been awarded to
C. O. Johnson & Son, Phoenix con
struction firm, it was announced
today by Carl A. Bimson, president
of the statewide Valley Bank sys
tem.
Bimson said the contract was
for $117,016 and that land and
equipment costs would bring the
bank’s investment to approxi
mately “a sixth of a million dol
lars.” Actual construction of the
building will begin within the next
few days, he added.
