    Background: AS INTERNATIONAL TENSION GROWS, CIVIL DEFENCE ORGANISATIONS ALL OVER THE UNITED STATES ARE INCREASING IN NUMBER AND ACTIVITY, AND MORE AND ANTI-RADIATION SHELTERS ARE BEING BUILT OR EXISTING STRUCTURES CONVERTED. ONE SUCH CONVERSION WAS OPENED RECENTLY IN LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA. IT WILL PROVIDE PROTECTION FOR FOUR-THOUSAND PEOPLE SHOULD THE NEED ARISE.

    THE SHELTER IS A CONVERTED UNDERGROUND GARAGE, EXTENDING FOR SEVEN FLOORS BELOW GROUND LEVEL. A LARGE ROOM ON THE LOWEST LEVEL HAS BEEN STOCKED WITH FOOD, WATER, BLANKETS, RADIOS, AND FIRST-AID KITS. CIVIL DEFENCE OFFICIALS SAY THE SUPPLIES ON HAND ARE SUFFICIENT TO LAST THE FOUR-THOUSAND PEOPLE FOR TWO WEEKS.
