  • Description

    ONE HUNDRED AMERICAN NAVAL RATINGS EMERGED IN HIGH HEALTH AND SPIRITS MAR 3 FROM A 12-DAY STAY IN AN UNDERGROUND FALL-OUT SHELTER AT THE BETHESDA NAVAL HOSPITAL, MARYLAND.

    THE SAILORS, WHO HAD VOLUNTEERED TO STAY DOWN FOR AN INDEFINITE PERIOD, HAD BEEN PASSING THE TIME BY DANCING THE "TWIST" TO BONGO DRUMS MADE OF RATION TINS.

    MEASURING ONLY 25FT BY 48FT THE SHELTER HAS NO HEATER AND DEPENDS FOR WARMTH ON THE BODY HEAT OF ITS OCCUPANTS. THIS WAS ENOUGH TO RAISE THE TEMPERATURE TO 82 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT, AND MORALE IMPROVED WHEN THE VENTILATION WAS SPEEDED UP. SCIENTISTS WATCHED THE VOLUNTEERS ON CLOSED CIRCUIT TELEVISION.
