    Background: IN ANTICIPATION OF THE LATEST EXPLOSION OF A NUCLEAR DEVICE BY THE SOVIET UNION, THE NORWEGIANS ARE NOT AWAITING THE OUTCOME OF PLEAS MADE IN UNITED NATIONS FOR A CESSATION OF THESE TESTS, BUT ARE GOING AHEAD WITH PRACTICAL SAFEGUARDS.

    AT ST. HANS PARK IN OSLO, A FALL-OUT SHELTER HAS AN ENTRANCE OF 30MM STEEL, A LARGE HALL, AND IS FULLY ELECTRIFIED. AMONG THE EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT IS AN FILTER TO PROVIDE CONSTANT FRESH AIR, CENTRAL HEATING, FOOD SUPPLIES.

    SOME OF THESE SHELTERS WILL ACCOMMODATE UP TO FIVE THOUSANDS PEOPLE.

    IN THE EVENT OF FALLOUT CLOUD APPROACHING THE COUNTRY, THE NORWEGIANS PLAN TO SOUND AIR RAID SIRENS, RING CHURCH BELLS, BLOW LOCOMOTIVE ENGINE WHISTLES, ALL TO SUPPLEMENT THE BROADCASTS THAT WILL INSTRUCT PEOPLE TO TAKE TO THE SHELTERS.
