All three are possible. The challenge of civil defehse and'defense mobilization is to conceive and perfect all of the plans and obtain all of the actions necessary to execute them. First we must determine fundamentals for each area. Then we must find out how each can be accomplished. Next, we must get action. Consider the continuity of government. Government at every level simply must in any emergency retain command and control, give directions and information, and serve. For each government to be able to do this there must be: 1. Established lines of succession for all key officials. 2. Alternate protected sites from which government can function. 3. Essential records, safely stored. 4. Maximum use of all resources and manpower. Before I discuss these points, let me parenthetically remark that this program also is a model for insuring the continuity of industry. It can be expanded with many details for plant and employee protection, mutual assistance plans, security, and so on. But in all cases, industry's protec- tive plans should be closely dovetailed with those of each community, because in many actions they will be depending on each other. Industry's great advantage over government is that it has only to decide to prepare, and do it. For government, this is quite,another matter. Let me illustrate: Declassified in Part - Sanitized Copy Approved for Release @ 50-Yr 2014/05/16: CIA-RDP70-00211R001000200001-9 Declassified in Part - Sanitized Copy Approved for Release @ 50-Yr 2014/05/16: CIA-RDP70-00211R001000200001-9 - 2 - The obviously desirable establishment now of lines of automatic succession for key officials involves an almost unbelievable maze of consti- tutional and legal restrictions throughout the 50 States and most of their political subdivisions. However, the States have been quick to recognize the merit of the program. During 1959 alone, 34 States enacted part or all of the laws needed to insure continuity. More legislatures meet this year. Additionally, the voters of 13 States, having some 22 million people, will be voting in November on constitutional amendments for the same purpose. Kansas, like most of them, calls for a direct authorization to the legislature to set up the lines of succession. All States have provision for alternate sites. But the proposal to make them secure against the great threat of radioactive fallout raises budgetary problems for most States, even though half of the cost is available from the Federal government. To date only four States have protected sites. A fifth is under construction. The fourth point, on utilization of resources and personnel, requires only administrative action, so I will address myself now to the question of essential records, the question that is uppermost in your minds today. Here again, as with continuity of management, business and industry are far advanced over government as a whole. There are many notable records preservation programs in daily operation. I usually think of Westinghouse first, because Dick Grimes, on your symposium this morning, has several times lectured on his operations at our Staff College in Battle Creek, Michigan. But equally efficient, I am sure, are the records operations of the Aluminum Company of America, Jones and Laughlin Steel, U.S. Steel, The Ford Motor Company, the Burroughs Corporation, Chase Manhattan Banks Standard Oil of New Jersey, and the list could go on and on. I'm sure it could, because just one commercial depository -- Iron Mountain in New York --is handling the records of more than 3,000 corporations. Underground vaults and storage is joining a notable field of enterprise, and I have no doubt will become as busy as Iron Mountain, National Storage Records in Pennsylvania and Western Atomic Vaults in The Federal government is well advanced, basically, because the essential departments and agencies already have alternate sites from which to operate, and essential records are in place. o 1 0 7 6 1 0 9 Declassified in Part - Sanitized Copy Approved for Release @ 50-Yr 2014/05/16: CIA-RDP70-00211R001000200001-9 0 Declassified in Part - Sanitized Copy Approved for Release @ 50-Yr 2014/05/16: CIA-RDP70-00211R001000200001-9 - 3 - However, we recognize that after an attack, the central government might not be able to reach all of the nation. There very well could be islands of survival completely out of touch with each other or with the Federal relocation sites. Therefore we must have multiple duplication of the more vital ecords so that they may be stored in all of the regional offices. I believe substantial progress is being made in this phase. Below the Federal level, we encounter again the complexities of laws, frequently archaic. . . such as those forbidding the removal of documents from a. given spot, even for duplication. We are concerned here with two types of records: 1. Those needed for emergency operations, such as operations plans, materials inventories and personnel records, utility and facility maps and plans, and so on. 2. Those which protect the rights and interest of people and their governments, such as deeds, financial records, charters, laws, and ordinances. ke," Emergency operating records must be at the spot where they would be used during an emergency (the relocation site) and in the form in which they would be used immediately. There would be no time to relocate these records or convert them to another form. The "rights and interests" records may be stored anywhere that their preservation is insured, and in whatever form is determined to be most economical and efficient. Because both governments and people would be virtually helpless in many respects without adequate records, OCDM next will help State govern- ments to develop their preservation programs. 1,0 Two ,ample acts have been developed for the consideration of legis- tures, with the assistance and drafting aid of Columbia and Depaw Uni- versities. They have been endorsed by the Council of State Governments, and are included in the suggested State legislation program for 1960. The first, the Records Management Act, would establish efficient lzand economical records management as the proper framework for the specific measures outlined in the second. This in turn, as the preservation of essential Records Act, would remove legal barriers to the movement and duplication of all essential , .records.

The sponsorship of training programs by organizations of government officials and other interested groups is being encouraged. I might mention tr t we already have had the help of 12 national organizations, including the 4iemerican Records Management Association, in developing the Program. Over-all emphasis will be placed on having preservation measures beco e an integral part of day-to-day paperwork. This should not be costly. Preservation costs for essential records can be reduced substantially or even absorbed if records preservation activities are integrated with those of effective records management. Thus a program spurred by new demands of the thermonuclear age would pay continuing peacetime dividends. I will say exactly the same thing for the equally vital program for personal survival, which we are trying now to impress on every American through every information medium. The fundamentals were easily identified. For civil defense prepared- ness, every citizen should know these five things: 1. The warning signals and what they mean. A steady blast of 3 to 5 minutes means: Take action as directed by your local government. You should know what it plans. If you do not, tune your radio to a Conelrad frequency -- 640 or 1240 on your AM dial, for official direction. A wailing tone or short blasts for 3 minutes means: Take cover immediately in the bes't available shelter. Your community plan for emergency action. If you are in a target city, you will be asked either to move out or to take the best available shelter. The decision is a local one. If you are not in a target city, you should take cover. 0 0 107610e' Declassified in Part - Sanitized Copy Approved for Release @ 50-Yr 2014/05/16: CIA-RDP70-00211R001000200001-9 981 Declassified in Part - Sanitized Copy Approved for Release @ 50-Yr 2014/05/16: CIA-RDP70-00211R001000200001-9 - 5 - 3. How to protect yourself from radioactive fallout. You should construct a fallout shelter and stock it with a two-week supply of food and water, a battery radio, first-aid kit, and essential items for survival. Shelter designs and plans are available. 4. First-aid and home emergency preparedness. This is essential for everyday living, but crucial in case of nuclear attack. 5. How to use Conelrad -- 640 or 1240 -- for official directions and instruction. All other radio, and television would be silent. Detailed information pertaining to these five points is available at our local, State, and Federal civil defense offices. I would like to add that, simple as they are for the individual to know, behind their simplification is some of the vast complexity of which I spoke earlier. I will explain briefly. Point 1. If we heard the wailing "take cover" signal right now, this is what has happened. From the DEW, Mid-Canada, or Pine Tree radar lines there would have flaglied a danger signal to the North American Air Defense Headquarters. From there, an OCDM Warning Officer (and they are on duty 24 hours a day) would flash a warning over the OCDM network. This warning would go to over 300 key points, in every State and metropolitan area, in 90 seconds. From the key point it would be relayed over individual State and area networks, to the individual communities. If now the take cover were sounding, it would mean that the Mayor of Wichita would have decided that "take cover" was the logical course of action. Point 2. Your community plan is developed from and is firmly anchored to a bulwark of real substance. It begins with the National Plan for Civil Defense and Defense Mobilization, promulgated by the President as the key to all non-military defense. It sets forth the mission, how it is to be accomplished, and by whom -- the responsibilities of every level of government, of industry, business, agriculture, the individual citizen. Some 40 annexes, most ofwhich have been issued, spell out details for such responsibilities as health, welfare, transportation, manpower, military assistance, public information, and so on. Tied directly to this are 50 State operational survival plans, federally financed and directed, but created by each State's own experts: From them stem 240 metropolitan area plans, and some 2,200 local plans. Declassified in Part - Sanitized Copy Approved for Release @ 50-Yr 2014/05/16: CIA-RDP70-00211R001000200001-9 Declassified in Part - Sanitized Copy Approved for Release @ 50-Yr 2014/05/16: CIA-RDP70-00211R001000200001-9 - 6 - Through these, everyone, every official, should know just what to do under what circumstances and with what resources. Point 3. Protection from fallout involves two elements. First, to know when protection is needed, it is necessary to know where fallout is, how radiologically hot it is, after an attack. Therefore, OCDM is developing a nationwide capability for detecting, measuring, and reporting on fallout. We have provided instruments for and trained monitors in some 900 fixed federal stations. We expect to have 3,000. We are distributing instruments to States, and training their oper- ators. The States and local governments have over 14,000 fixed stations ope rational. We have distributed almost 8,000 sets of training instruments to high schools of the nation, trained science teachers, with one million students having had training this past school year alone. The program will reach all 30,000 high schools in the nation. -- I go from here to Alameda, California, to dedicate the OCDM Western Training Center, our third school for training radiological monitors and other civil defense personnel. -- Second, the National Shelter Policy is designed to encourage a do-it-yourself shelter program with strong federal guidance and support. OCDM is building prototype fallout shelters of all kinds and sizes, with daily dual purpose use, in every State, for information and guidance. We are conducting surveys in a number of cities and counties to determine just what shelter capability exists, and how it can be improved. We are doing the same thing with some Federal buildings. Shelter from fallout offers the greatest single potential for saving lives in the event of nuclear attack. Fallout respects no person and no place. There isn't a home in America that couldn't be covered by the deadly stuff after a major attack. Therefore we are urging every Amer- ican to construct a fallout shelter for his protection and for the defense of this nation. We are distributing millions of family fallout shelter booklets, with everything from do-it-yourself to intricate shelter plans. We know that shelter building is on a steady increase, everywhere. 00 0 7 61 0 9 Declassified in Part - Sanitized Copy Approved for Release @ 50-Yr 2014/05/16: CIA-RDP70-00211R001000200001-9 -,1;6-982 Declassified in Part - Sanitized Copy Approved for Release @ 50-Yr 2014/05/16: CIA-RDP70-00211R001000200001-9 - 7 - Point 4. First-aid and home preparedness is so fundamental that it requires no discussion. The American National Bed Cross is our dependable help in giving this training. Point 5. Conelrad for emergency information is a system designed to deny navigational aid to an enemy. Designated AM stations switch from their normal frequencies to 640 or 1240. These would be your only source of information in an emergency. There are many things that I haven't mentioned, such as: The development and management of our 225 million dollar stockpile of emergency supplies including 1,900 emergency 200-bed hospitals. The design and control of our nearly 8 billion dollar stockpile of strategic materials for industry. Defense mobilization -- for emergency post-attack management of all resources and requirements. . . one of the most intricate planning jobs in the world. And there are many others. This has been a quick glimpse of preparedness in the thermonuclear age. All of it accomplished would represent a deterrent power of the highest order because with it, we couldn't be beaten. No bully attacks anyone he can't defeat. This is a vital part of our total defense. As President Eisenhower said on August 25 last, and I quote: "It would be unwise to neglect our civil defense mission because our total defense is incomplete and meaningless without reliable and respon- sible home defense. Survival cannot be guaranteed merely with a capacity for reprisal. Equally important is our ability to recover. " End of quote. Therefore, in this time of delicate balance between peace and the "ultimate insanity" of nuclear war, I can see no higher mission for all of us than civil defense preparedness. I am convinced that when everyone is prepared, then we'll never have to prove how effective that preparation was. * U.S. GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE 0-1960 Declassified in Part - Sanitized Copy Approved for Release @ 50-Yr 2014/05/16: .01A-RDP70-00211R001000200001-9 CIA-RDP70-00211R001000200001-9 i ; Declassified in Hart - Sanitized Copy Approved for Release ? 50-Yr 2014/05/16 m rprmplin .H1110111 1111111iligng 1A119,11,1 non .111111111r111 I 11 1111.11 1111111irirci I 11. anutk tiiii lot - s .. s. 4 Every financial transaction of this bank and all its branches is micro-filmed daily, and the films deposited daily in an impregnable vault 225 feet underground in the mountains of Pennsylvania.

This security is accomplished by transmittal to National Storage Company of microfilm, original records, copies of daily paper records or data processing tape, which would be used in reconstructing a balance sheet and physical facilities. As part of their service National Storage furnishes complete Operating Manual Instructions, all paper forms and labels, mak- ing it possible to inaugurate a vital records protection program immediately. Economical record storage The accumulation of inactive but important paper records poses a real storage problem in many companies today. Retention periods of such records are variable dependent on com- pany policy or statutory requirements. Na- tional Storage has a low-cost plan for storing such records underground. The security fea- ture is an added dividend. Complete Operating Manual Instructions and container label sets are supplied as a service. Recommended cor- rugated boxes are also available. Record boxes are properly labeled, indexed and stored on modern steel shelving for efficient referral service. Private vaults Individual Private Vaults, custom designed to meet customer requirements, are available to those seeking the ultimate in security. All private vaults are enclosed by walls at least 8" thick, illuminated and atmospherically con- trolled. Vaults are equipped with Underwriter approved, 4 hour, combination, steel vault doors weighing approximately 1600 pounds. Lock combination to the vault door will be assigned exclusively to the customer if specified. Private business archives For customers who prefer, private business archives or record centers will be developed underground according to invididual specifi- cations. This type of a records operation may be staffed by the customer's own personnel.

" Facts about National Storage Company This Underground Fortress comprising the Nation's largest record vaults is situated in the heart of Industrial America, approxi- mately 55 miles from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The surrounding area is strictly rural in char- acter (out of range of any critical area). These vaults encased in limestone and the available services are specially designed to provide industry, Finance and Government with a secure depository for vital data against any form of disaster. Since there are. available 80 acres of floor space at the protective depth of 220 feet, a wide range of facilities and services can be custom developed to meet the exacting speci- fications of the customer. These improvements are made without capital expense to the customer. Substantial savings and improved service are but a few of the benefits reported by satis- fied customers. Westinghouse Electric Corporation estimates that since moving its record center underground, costs have dropped 35% and about 24 hours is saved in servicing record requests. Blaw-Knox Company, which operates its own records center, reports: "Under our new opera- tion our withdrawals have decreased roughly 75% even though more records are now in storage, and many of these have a shorter re- tention period in the office than before. Now we operate with one employee. In other words, the savings in labor is enough to offset our renting cost." Since 1956 National Storage Company has been the bulwark against disaster for custom- ers of all categories of business and govern- ment located in many states of the nation? even foreign countries.

Data Stored in Old Mine As A-Blast Safeguard In a move to protect historic landmark papers against an atomic blast, the city has stored more than 43,000 reels of microfilmed deeds and mortgages dating back to 1683 in a three-mile deep mountain con- crete vault some 50 miles north' of Pittsburgh, Records Com- missioner Charles A. Baker. disclosed Tuesday. A former limestone mine inj Butler county was restored byi the National Security Co. as a storage vault for irreplaceable' documents. Since 1954, when 13.000 reels! were placed in the blast-P roof , vault, the city has been adding, j about 5000 reels annually. 'SAFETY ASSURED "In these days of international ;crisis." Baker said, "the city. I has taken steps to ensure perm- anent preservation of valuable' records of the city'l lands a n d properties, so important to Civil, Defense programming." Baker said one copy of the microfilm is kept in City Hall and the other in the air-conditioned mountain vault. Philadelphia. he said, has joined with other corn-. munities in protecting these documents. He said it costs the city about 92500 a year in stor-: age charges. ? Among the historic microfilm-' ed documents stored in the vault is the famous William Penn "walking purchase" .agreement which based land measurements' on the distance a man could walkj In a given period. DEEDS MICROFILMED At the same time, Baker re- vealed his department is nearing completion of the monumental' task of microfllming some 37,0001 deeds and mortgage books dating' back to the 17th century. T h el booki deal with more than 500,- 1 000 pieces of land and property I in the city. s He estimated the work has cost -1050,000 since 1934 and should be ?'completed by November. Philo- ! delpbia. he said, is the first city ? to accomplish this task. Many ? other cities are following t h e city's lead, he said.

He said the cave in which the four men work has an area of some .42,000 12,800 SHELVES IN cave, 205 feet below earth's surface stores 105,000 - cartons of Westinghouse company records.

The limestone mine was "mined out" 'about 1940 and covers 80 subterranean acres owned by the National 'Storage Company which rents space to firms who want a safe place to store valuable records. Various "rooms" of the mine?such as the one occupied b' Westinghouse ?are heated but passageways leading to them are' not. Nevertheless, the .temperature outside the rooms re- mains at a fairly constant 52. degrees all year. It may vary .only one half of a degree one. ?way or the other. Air flows through the mine con- stantly at a speed of about seven miles per hour. .The walls and ceiling of .the West- inghouse "rOom" have been painted with aluminum enamel and the floor has been covered with three and one half inches ..of asphalt., - "The aluminum paint gives us bet- ter light reflection," Mr. Grimes said. ,"We used 310 gallons of paint to .do the job. More than 900 -feet of West- inghouse- fluorescent. lights provide ? illumination." e Nothing Unusual; Except?He pointed out that except for the fact that the walls and ceiling are rough .limestone "one would never know that there's anything unusual about our. storage space here." "We do have, hoWever, what may be one Of the world's deepest kitchen facilities because We're. 205 feet below the surface-.

In fact, if they receive a request from Pittsburgh?and they get perhaps 100 such requests daily?the wanted rec- ords can be delivered within 24 hours, or sooner, depending on the time of day the request is received. In an emergency, we can do it in a matter of a few hours." Mr. Grimes said that because all records are stored on one level, about 24 percent less space is required. Use of the cave has another distinct ad- vantage over the multi-story build- ings formerly used in Pittsburgh. Mechanized equipment, such as fork trucks, can be used to full advantage because of the one-level operation. ? Underground Economy ? "There are also the economic advantages," Mr. Grimes said. "For example, we expect to reduce our operating ex- penses by about 34 percent yearly. It was primarily for this reason, reduced cost, that we decided to take our record center underground. And of course, they're extremely safe here? even in the event of an atomic attack." He said the record center will probably receive some 37,000 cartons of company records in 1957?an aver- age of over 3,000 cartons a month. Some 32,000 cartons, which have been kept for a specified period, will be destroyed during the year. 1111M11?111?1113111101. TELETYPE SYSTEM keeps in touch with Pittsburgh office 52 miles away.

CLEARING HOUSE- Bank Uses Old Mine as Vault for Records By JACK CLEARY A STORAGE VAULT, 225 feet below a Penney". vania mountain, has been acquired by National City Bank of Cleveland as part of a detailed plan to assure continuity of banking operations in this important area In the event of catastrophe?including nuclear attack. This was revealed yesterday for the first time by John S.

National City Bank thus be- comes the first Cleveland com- mercial bank and r- one of relatively few banks of the nation to obtain underground, bombproof stor- age facilities. The vault is a part of an 80-acre worked-out lime- stone mine at Boyers, Pa., about 80 miles JACK CLEARY northeast of Pittsburgh.

"We have planned for the continuity of our management and the protection of our per- sonnel and assets, as well as our records," Fangboner said. To be effective in any emer- gency, all duplicate records must be kept right up to date. To this end, National City either microfilms its daily re- ports or gathers carbon copies for dispatch to the mine. An armored car leaves the Cleveland headquarters at 6:15 p.m., at the end of each work- ing day, and arrives at the mine vault at 12:15 a.m. The old mine, which is vir- tually a working city hidden under green forested mountains, is heavily guarded and barred to outsiders. Only authorized personnel are permitted to en- ter. For National City, only five persons have access per- mits. The mine contains numerous separate vault rooms for indi- vidual clients, the closest one- quarter of a mile from the main entrance. The stone walls of the mine are painted silver, and the floors have been blacktopped. The corridors are as wide as a highway, and armored trucks or automobiles of clients drive right through the miles of un- derground roadway to the in- dividual vaults. National City has leased 350 cubic feet of storage space for its microfilm and duplicate records. These are consolidated on film at the end of each month, and older, out of date microfilms are discarded. Thus, at any moment, complete rec- ords are available. 00107310 9 t-is93 )eclassified in Part- Sanitized Copy Approved for Release @ 50-Yr 2014/05/16.

The latter includes such accommodations as a tastefully decorated reception room, a kitchen and dining area and three bedrooms. The mine contains escape hatches as well as alternate entrances. However, locations of the latter are top secret. National City has drawn up a complete but simplified man- ual governing operation of the bank in the event of an "emer- gency."
