  • Description

    A DANISH COUPLE AND THEIR THREE MONTH OLD BABY GIRL EMERGED AFTER SPENDING FOUR DAYS IN A TINY UNDERGROUND NUCLEAR SHELTER, FEBRUARY 23RD, AS A TEST FOR THE COPENHAGEN CIVIL DEFENCE DEPARTMENT.

    THE FAMILY WAS QUICK TO DISCOVER A NUMBER OF FAULTS IN THE PREPARATIONS FOR THE SHELTER, THE FIRST IN DENMARK. MUCH OF THEIR FOOD, WHICH WAS TINNED, CONTAINED TOO MUCH SALT, CAUSING A HEAVY DEMAND ON THEIR WATER SUPPLY. TOILET FACILITIES, TOO, WERE INADEQUATE.

    THEY DID FIND, HOWEVER, THAT LIFE COULD BE TOLERABLE, DESPITE THE CRAMPED CONDITIONS IN THE SINGLE ROOM OF THE SHELTER. MUCH OF THEIR TIME WAS SPENT IN THE SINGLE ROOM OF THE SHELTER. MUCH OF THEIR TIME WAS SPENT IN READING, PLAYING CARDS AND COOKING.

    AND OFFICIAL RECEPTION GREETED THE GROUP WHEN IT RETURNED TO THE SURFACE.
