Leslie Smith, President CD Director Explains Plan For Surveys Mr. John Moses, Civil De fense Director of Lexington, said today that the Depart ment of Defense, U. S. Corps of Engineers and Mississippi Civil Defense Council, working through the local Civil Defen se organization, is moving in to the second part of the en gineering survey of all exist ing buildings in our communi ty which can be utilized in the event of war to provide protection from radioactive fallout for the people of our community. Architect - engi neers have completed the ini tial examination of all build ings in the state that have a protection factor of 20 to - that would accomodate 50 or more persons. Mr. Moses stated that he is calling upon designated build ing owners that have struct ures that are determined to be desirable for Civil Defense purposes to cooperate with the State and Federal Shelter Pro gram. The building owners were requested to allow engi neers to make a study of their buildings to determine their fallout protection and to re commend physicial changes which possibly would be eligi ble for a federal grant. Civil Defense authorities will stock with provisions those build ings that possess a 100 pro tection factor. The provisions that will be stored locally in qualifying buildings will con sist of radiological detection instruments, emergency medi cal supplies, water containers and canned wheat wafers. Our Civil Defense Director further stated that there would be no expense whatso ever to the building owner and that there would be no liabili ty for the care, protection or maintenance of the provisions by the individual building owner. Inasmuch as this is a very high priority program in which all of our citizens are expected to cooperate for the common good of the State, it is pointed out that the cur rent shelter survey is the pre lude to an expanded compre hensive program of Civil De fense in Mississippi and the Country.
