Transcript FAMILY SIZE BOMB SHELTEB! The first h-bomb shelter ever erected in a speculative house is featured in the home at 5102 Jackwood sponsored by the Houston Home Builders Association. While national civilian defense chiefs talk about mass evacuation of cities, something is actually being done in Houston and the Parade of Homes. Association officials arranged with Weldon F. Appelt, president of the Clear Span Engineering Co., for inclusion of the bomb shelter in the Association home. Appelt and his firm are the originator and manufacturer of the shelter. Called the "Para-Cap" shelter, it has a parabolic roof with every outside piece curved to absorb and resist shock and blast. The shelter is entered from a stairway off the kitchen. The shelter has an emergency exit through the round tunnel cap which has a circular eyepiece in the tunnel cap for observation. A separate air intake through the filter periscope changes the air every 15 minutes. It will accommodate up to 10 persons comfortably for a week or more. It has a diameter of 14 feet and utilizes every inch of space. It can be used as a utility room, extra bedroom, children's playroom, den, study, workshop or storage room. Mr. Appelt says that the shelter will withstand pressures exerted by the heaviest known q^ _ H-bomb in any area imt miles from the blast's center. This means protection in four of the five civil defense evacuation zones. Mr. Appelt observed the recent H-bomb tests at Las Vegas at the request of Val Peterson, Federal Civil Defense chief. Defense officials have been most praiseworthy in discussing Mr. Appelt's underground shelter.
