U. S. 'ALERT' TO FEATURE CONELRAD DRILL, CLOSE GOVERNMENT INTERPLAY May 3, 4, and 5 are important days this year to all Americans. On these days the seventh annual civil defense preparedness exer- cise, Operation Alert 1960, will be held from coast to coast. The objective of the 1960 Alert will be to train personnel in Na- tional, State, and local govern- merits, in industry, and in pri- vate organizations to respond ef- fectively to an all-out attack on the United States with nuclear weapons. * * $ THE PRINCIPAL participa- tion by the public on a nation- wide basis in the exercise will be during the hall-hour begin- "ning at 1 p.m. (EST) on Tues- day, May 3. when a Conelrad radio broadcast will be aired on ,0 and 1240 kilocycles. During this period, all television, FM radio stations, and those radio stations not in the Coneirad net- work must leave the air. The special Conelrad broad cast will originate from the Emergency Site of the Fed- eral Government "some- where outside of Washing- ton." It will include brief addresses by President Eis- enhower and Civil and De- fense Mobilization Director Leo A. Hoegh. The Conelrad broadcast will give the American public an op- portunity to experience the kind of radio reception it would have to rely on during an enemy at- tack. The broadcast's impor- tance will be emphasized by the fact that, under attack condi- tions, the 640 and 1240 channels would be the only source for survival instructions to the gen- eral public. $ $ $ PARTICIPATION BY the Fed- eral, State. and local govern- merits this year will be of special significance to the nation's pre- paredness program for it will demonstrate the effectiveness of coordinated action among them. Federal agencies will in- voke comprehensive plans for action during an attack on this country. All 50 States will operate under their statewide survival plans. Plans for emergency action in metropolitan areas and smaller communities will be screened for their effective- ]less. Equally important will be the conduct of the exercise in indus- trial plants throughout the coun- try because emergency proced- ures in the larger plants are as comprehensive as those for an entire community. Mutual aid agreements within industry are another form of coordinated ac- tion. Five Local Youths Pre-Enroll At W.S.U.

Conelrad Test Set For May 3 CONELRAD which is an import- ant part of the Civil Defense or- ganization will .again be heard for one half hour during the seventh annual national civil defense test, exercise, Operation Alert 1960.

How the program is heard ,and any comments would be greatly appreciated by the Civ- il Defense office if people would April 28/1960 Monroe Monitor, Monroe, Wash. PAGE ,FIVE Sports Afield If you plan to visit our 50th qstate and enjoy the hunting opportunities the islands *have to offer, do NOT take your sporting dog along. Leave him at home and plan to hunt with some friend's dog; or else ship your dog to Hawaii months in ad- vance of your visit, states Henry P. Davis, Sporting Dogs Editor of Sports Afield Magazine. The reason? All dogs entering Hawaii must, by law, be confined in the Animal Quarantine Station in Honolulu for a period of 120 days or longer, as the State Veterinar- ian shall deem necessary. This is quite a hardship on the sporting dog enthusiasts in the islands who want to purchase trained gun dogs from owners living on the main- land. Yet is is considered a highly desirable measure as a preventa- tive against rabies and other dis- eaes. The quarantine station in Hono- lulu is located in a beautiful spot, with plenty of shade. Each dog has his individual kennel and exercise pen, which is kept scrupulously clean. Fresh drinking water is on hand at all times and the dogs are well fed. On arrival, and periodi- cally thereafter, each dog is given a thorough physical examination. All of the diseases revealed by these examinations are reported to the owner or the owner's designat- ed veterinarian Treatment of sick dogs is the owner's responsibility, and sick animals may be removed to approved small-animal hospi- tals for treatment at the discre- tion of the State Veterinarian. Housing, food and attendants for the dogs are provided by the new state. The cost is shared with the owner. At present owners pay a fee of 75 cents per day for adult dogs. Should a bitch whelp pup- pies during her quarantine a daily fee of 40 cents is charged for each puppy after it's six weeks old. The puppies must remain in quaran- tine' until discharged with their mothers. The kennel capacity of the station is 465 dogs. Approximately 1,000 dogs pass through the station am nually, and sporting dogs make up only a small percentage of them. Duck hunting is limited to one pre- serve in the islands, and the rug- ged terrain, much of it heavily laden with lava rock, is extremely hard on the pads of a bird dog's feet, hence the gun dog fraternRy is comparatively small in size. However, with the increase in up- land game birds, the sporting dog fancy is growing at a healthy rate, encouraged materially by the vari- ous field trials on the islands. The primary purpose of the quar- antine station is to prevent the in- troduction of rabies. This disease has a long incubation period and therefore a long quarantine period is deemed necessary.
