Those members of the student body who have been eschewing subway trips or have been cowering in the inside corners of their rooms for fear of horrid seismographic tragedies need no longer do so according to L. Don Leet, director of the University station at Oak Ridge. There will be no further disturbances.
"Friday's earthquake showed signs of being in a class by itself, quite different from ordinary quakes," said Dr. Leet. "The many aftershocks we expected did not develop. There were only three very small tremors."
"The reason for the absence of many aftershocks is probably that this was a deep-focus quake, a hundred or two hundred miles below the surface of the ground."
