Mrs. Peter Latz tells me that her daughter Mary is progressing very nicely. She has resumed her work shop duties and is living in a unit very much like Sunset Homes. Best of all she is very happy there.

Franklin St. Phone 644-**** Stanley, Wis. 54768 60 years ago April 26, 1962 Fifteen Sites Picked as Area Fallout Shelters Fifteen buildings in the Stanley-Boyd-Cadott area have been selected as potential fallout protection shelters, following a recent survey here.

Elmer F. Charland, Chippewa County civil defense director, said this week that an architectural and engineering firm, Carl C. Crane Inc., Mad – ison, had earmarked the fifteen buildings as potential shelters during their survey here.

The buildings are: For Stanley:

• Our Savior’s Lutheran Sunday school building, Stanley

• Victory Memorial Hospital • Stanley junior high

• St. Mary’s school

• Fall Dairy building

• Farmer’s and Merchant’s State Bank building

• The Stanley Bakery building

• The Stanley Theatre For Boyd:

Boney’s Bowling Alley For Cadott: • Five diuerent areas in the school buildings, plus the Cadott Medical Building Listing of these buildings as potential fallout shelters does not obligate the owners to sign the lease agreements, of course. But, according to Charland, “the use of these structures for shelter purposes, when marked as such and stocked with food and other survival items, could save the lives of many citizens, should nuclear war occur.”

(Note: according to www., there are currently nine nuclear armed states in the world with a combined 13,080 warheads. Of these 9,600 are in military service, while the other 3,480 “await dismantling.” The vast majority of this arsenal is held by the United States and Russia.)
