[Photograph 2012.201.OVZ001.1502]

Description: Photograph used for a story in the Daily Oklahoman newspaper. Caption: "T'was the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a creature ws stirring, not even a mouse. But southeast of Oklahoma City 'on the hill,' things were buzzing as usual as the men and women - officer and airmen - of the 746th Aircraft Control and Warning manned their radar scopes, plotting boards, and communication stations just like all the other nights of the year....Over at 530 Babb in Midwest City, Mrs. Lamoyne Sands is helping her three little children, Larry, 9, Roxanne, 6, and Dianne, 3, hang their stockings on the Christmas tree - fireplace mantels are a premium in the modern housing developments. She is hoping T-Sgt. Sands - crew chief on the swing shift at the 746th air derrection center - will get home shortly after Christmas day arrives, knowing full well the only thing to delay him will be an "unkown" on one of the scopes...Mrs. Harry G. Russell jr., 613 E Bouse, Midwest City, was tucking Mark, 2, and Gregory, 8, into bed, and Heidi, 6, was going through her "blessings" as she said her nighttime prayers. Liut. Russell, fighter-intercepter controller on the swing swift in the direction center, has his eyes glued to the greenish-grey face of the master radar scope......What he, and the rest of the air defense system, are guarding against is a sleek cigar-shaped object powered by eight jets."
