CITY'S CORNICE FAULTY, TOO: Workmen remove the common cornice across the top of a city-owned and another building. The city building housing the Utilities (Water) Department and city controller's offices is at the left. The city and other building owners went together to have the old cornice removed. A recent city survey of commercial building cornices, parapet walls, overhang and fronts found 93 buildings in need of work.

Shelter Installed: A civil defense shelter at the city's Montgomery Wells was lowered into its permanent home this morning. Melvin Cater (in cab) lowers the 19-foot long metal tank into the ground while Jack Cole rides down with it. Both are employees of the city's Utilities Department. The metal cylinder is seven feet in diameter and the company which manufactures them claims it will sleep seven persons. The shelter is being placed next to the pumping station and will serve to provide shelter for an operator in case of emergency. Entrance to the shelter will be provided inside the pumping station which houses a diesel engine that will pump water to the civil defense center in the basement of City Hall in case of emergency. It will be buried beneath about three feet of earth cover. Supplies in the shelter will enable an operator and his family to survive for two weeks to a month. Enough diesel fuel is at the pumping station to last three weeks. Included in the equipment that will be in the shelter are a blower to circulate air, a water connection from the wells, electric lights, a sump pump, a dehumidifier, a food supply, first aid equipment and a clock radio.
