One evening Miss Wlswick, the minister and several other
individuals were discussing some of the things needed in
Jeffersontown for improvement of the city.
Miss Elswick remarked that a theater would be a good
The two along with Rhoda Peters and Carter Ormsby got
together with Jon Jory, director of Actors Theater in
Louisville, and he agreed to help. Reverend Tyrrell was
named business manager, an attorney was consulted and a
corporation was formed.
From this small beginning the theater group was formed
and the first play is nearly ready to open. A second play to
follow "Our Town" is now being planned.
Tyrrell appointed Ed Stevenson assistant business
manager in charge of ticket sales. Tickets for the first
performance may be purchased directly from Stevenson by
or picked up at Liberty National Bank,
Jeffersontown Branch, after April 1 for $2.
Each area club was asked to make a $50 donation and
most responded. They are to receive $200 in return for
selling tickets. The $50 covers stage props and costumes for
the first play.
Assisting Rhoda Peters in direction will be Nancy Smith,

manager will be Barbara Patrick and technical director is

At the program, set for 8 p.m. at Freedom
,Hall on Monday, April 13, several awards of
!$100 and a medal will be presented to area
youths who have been selected as outstanding,
although it is not known yet how many. There
will be up to 1 0 winners.
"Saving bonds are being given rather than
scholarships," said Stevens, "because some may
be won by youths not in school."
Nominations for teenagers aged 13 through
19 eligible for the awards were made earlier this
month and will be judged during Youth
Recognition Week by a selection committee of
four adults and three teenagers. Judging will be
based on outstanding achievements or
contributions to the community. The nominee

thought that all their needs would be provided
for them in the shelter.
While enough food, water and medical
supplies are stocked in the shelter to provide for
waiting period before radiation
would have sufficiently disappeared to allow
people to leave the cave, each individual is
responsible for bringing certain items along
He should put on as many of the warmest
clothes as he can wear and bring blankets,
because the concrete basements of the shelter
or cave being utilized are very cold at night
He should bring an air mattress or inflatable
raft to keep him off the concrete floor while
sleeping. A flashlight and batteries are essential.
If there is an infant in the family or someone
on a restricted diet, milk or special food must
be carried along.
If a family member is dependent on a
particular medicine, it must be remembered. A
transistor radio should be kept at hand so the
civil defense office can keep in touch with the
people and relay any new instructions.
The plan also calls for more than a thousand
shelter managers to be trained to organize and
run the various shelters.
"We hope we'll never have to use the shelters
or the supplies," commented Kinkead. "But if
something ever does happen, it will be a very
good thing that we have them. We believe we
might be lucky enough to have a couple hours
warning before a nuclear attack. That would
give people time to get to the nearest shelter.
The most unfortunate thing is that families
would have to be separated if the children were
at school, the fathers at work, and the mothers
at home. But there is nothing that can be done
Included in the 600 shelters described in the
supplement is a cavelike limestone quarry
location near the Watterson Expressway and
Poplar Level Road. It is one of the few roofed
quarries in the country and probably the only
one under the city. A spring fed lake runs
through parts of the cave and it was stocked
with food and medical supplies by the civil
defense people several years ago.
The cave, which would be home for two
weeks to many Reporterlanders in case of an
attack, could easily shelter 78,000 poeple,
according to Kinkead. The food, some of which
has been there since the stocking of the cave
was begun in 1 963, is packed to last 20 years.
Kinkead is not aware of any other manmade
caves being used for defense centers,
Mammoth, Carlsbad and the large natural caves,
he says, would be impractical for food storage
because of the great streams of tourists
constantly passing through.
