ERECT SHELTER SIGNS: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers today began the placement of signs on Ann Arbor buildings that will be used as public fallout shelters. The first sign was placed at the YM-YWCA downtown. Looking on are (from the left) City Administrator Guy C. Larcom, jr., Joseph Derkowski, of the corps, Dr. H. R. Shipman, city Civil Defense director, and Mayor Cecil O. Creal. Twenty-three buildings will be used as shelters. Equipment is expected to be brought here beginning Wednesday.
