In all their conservations in the tunnels, as pipcd-in revolu- tionary music echoed in the background, (lie Chinese offi- cials stressed the defensive na- ture of the shcltev system. The officials saiii Peking's shelters have hospitals, dormi- tories, stores and canteens, a telephone and broadcast sys- tem, running water and sani- tary facilities. The officials said the under- ground shelter system super- sedes an series of shei- :crs 13 feet beneath the surface of Peking begun in December, loua. Observers noled this in- dicated that work began follow- ing six battles along the Yus- suri River the Chinese-So- viet border. The cover for the old shelter system was loo shallow, the tunnels too narrow and equip- ment inadequate, the officials said. The Peking slielters provide complete protection against conventional bombs and a large measure of protection against nuclear attack. Work is contin- uing to perfect the system against nuclear devices. The officials did not mention the Soviet Union by name as a possible foe hut referred to "a million troops stationed along the border." A leading official concluded the visit to the underground bomb shelter system by saying, "If we arc prepared there are two possibilities. One is that the enemy does not come. The other is that the enemy will conic. "Tf we arc not prepared, there is only one possibilil> that he will come." 600-mile paddle BRISBANE (neuter) Two Australian lifeguards have ar rived here after paddling a surf board GOO miles from Sydney in 18 days.
