      heads away from the windows. I guess you just would get a behind full of glass if the 'bomb' went off.

      I remember these drills. The 1950s,,,,,strange times they were.

      We all left the classroom and went into the hallways. I don't recall getting under my desk but my memory does not serve me well.

      ... yes, 'duck and cover' was for 'attack without warning'.
      No time to line up and go to a shelter or into the inner part of the building. As Bert the Turtle says- "Remember kids what do you do when you SEE THE FLASH? Duck and Cover!"

      nowadays they have lock-down drills and practice what to do if there is a shooter on campus.

      Pick your horror. Your odds are better with the crazy shooter than The Bomb.

      We never had drills. By then there were enough warheads it was pretty much useless to avoid it. I now live between three major military bases. If they dropped the bomb, San Diego is a crater.

      With the advent of the Mini Skirt, the duck and cover drills went the way of the Dodo.

      I recall these days, only down here in Miami, we were worried about Castro's MiGs.
