Rural Missouri - June 2020 - 35

ROUTE 66 EATS
If you look close while traveling Route 66 between Stanton and St. Clair at Lollar Road you just might spot the remains
of Kovac's Motel Cafe. The business catered to hungry travelers on the Mother Road, along with equally famished local
churchgoers on Sundays. It began as Motel Meramec, with cabins and home-cooked chicken dinners. Later it became
Kovac's, "Where chicken and dumplings are dee-licious" according to a post card. The motel offered family rates and TV
when this photo was taken, no doubt in the late '50s as the cars would attest. The building is now a private home.

COLD WAR SHELTER
This photo of a grim-faced L. Mueller of Leasburg building
a fallout shelter was taken in the winter of 1961-1962, at
the height of the Cold War. He was one rural Missourian
who took seriously the message of Missouri's Director of
Civil Defense Dean Lupkey, who, speaking at annual meetings around the state, told members they could survive
nuclear war, but only if they were prepared. "You can survive all right," the director declared. "Everyone in this room
can survive. But the chances are high that you won't survive, if you don't make a personal effort to be prepared."
Rural Missourians were told to expect thousands of refugees from the cities. They were encouraged to shelter
livestock and to keep them away from contaminated water
and grass. Through the Community Fallout Shelter Program launched in 1961, the state provided detailed plans
on how to build a fallout shelter, which was designed to
protect its occupants from radioactive debris from a nuclear explosion. Mueller's shelter was built of concrete on all
sides and featured four ventilation stacks. Fortunately, it
was never needed.
