Harvey Tribune (Newspaper) - February 4, 1962, Harvey, Illinois No action Here on mass a go Home drills one of the nation s leading educational administrators contends that the need to allay the fears of today s children concerning possible nuclear attacks is More important than fallout shelter programs which Are Likely to be a waste of valuable time Effort and Money. Or. Noble j. Puffer superintendent of the Cook county schools the country a second largest county educational system said in an interview on disaster survival programs in the schools that the current craze for the construction of fallout shelters has a questionable effect on the attitude of youth. A the atomic bomb scare Breeds restlessness a he claimed. A it is also conducive to the attitude of me first. If we can teach our children to think of safety in the Calm Normal course of instruction and to think of the safety of others we will go far in causing them to think of the Well being of children in other fallout shelters for schools Are of Little if any value. Or. Puffer said. Quot in the event of an attack parents want their children Home with them and our efforts in planning survival disaster programs Are directed toward that mass go Home drills for school children Are playing a Large part in the school program for disaster survival in Cook county or. Puffer pointed out. Quot i have urged All the school districts in the county to conduct these drills with the same Calm regularity and routine Given to fire drills a he said. Quot no undue emphasis should be Given to the malt a go Home drills. They should be presented to the children and accepted by them As Ordinary school procedure a the Only school District in the South suburban area which has conducted a go Home Drill for school children is the Homewood school District consisting of five schools. Slips of paper were sent by the teachers at the Homewood schools via the students to the parents informing them that school would be dismissed five minutes Early on the Day of the Drill. Parents were asked to be Home when the child arrived and to record the time of arrival on the slip of paper. According to reports less than five percent of the children took longer than 15 minutes to get Home. This result was regarded As near phenomenal cooperation since the school buses did not run that Day the idea being that realistically school buses could not run during an actual attack. Some parents met the children part of the Way Home but the majority walked alone. Homewood police provided some traffic control hut Here too Only a minimum could realistically be expected other school districts which were checked in the South suburban area reported that go Home drills had not been conducted. Harvey school District 152 reported that they have conducted fallout drills the students have been sent into hallways and other relatively Safe places away from the classrooms. There have been no go Home drills and none is planned. The school District is cooperating with the ocal civil defense and so far civil defense plans have not included sending the children Home. Markham and South Holland schools likewise have had no go Home drills neither has ascension school however. St. John the Baptist school has cooperated with the con Elrad Drill and another Drill on the pattern of fire drills last december. Or. Puffer said. Quot we Are not completely overlooking the possibilities of fallout shelters and some school districts have already submitted plans which include them in their disaster survival programs. Difficulties have been pointed out however concerning the turning of schools into fallout shelters Many of the one Story Glass structures Are not readily available to turn into shelters even if such a thing were satisfactory. Most of the school districts have no Money available to build shelters. Funds for maintaining the school during Normal conditions in most areas is proving difficult much less the addition of a fallout shelter. Civil defense officials Are stressing that they will make every Effort to get the children Home As soon As possible. Or. Puffer said he Felt that much of the fear among school children concerning nuclear attacks could be allayed by a greater emphasis on current events in the schools. He advocated the organization of current events clubs in the High schools open to All students for informal discussions Quot Lack of knowledge has always bred he stated.
