cellar covered by earth is a good
shelter (from radioactive fallout).
The second danger is chemical and
germ weapons. "You should know
something of the ' effect . of ; , such
weapons the symptoms of the
diseases 'or sickness .they can cause
'.n plants and animals. You, should
know what preliminary steps can
be taken to counteract the effects of
typical germ and chemical weap
