Cost of re- acidizing will be approximately $5,000, Cart said, which the council felt would be worth the expense for the possibility of doubling the flow of water. The mayor also pointed out that the new well is not affecting the flow of other city wells in the same area. He said a 24-hour test showed that other wells were not pulled down. Range gives progress report Range Telephone Cooperative, Inc., reported this week that staking of 267.75 miles of buried cable has been completed in the rural area of the Sundance ex- change.

A meeting to air questions and concerns regarding the beef ref- erendum program will be held Friday at Marco Village. The no-host supper is set for 6 p.m. with a meeting to follow at 7:30 p.m. John Pearson will be guest speaker with a question and an- swer session to follow his presen- tation. Nels Smith and Pat Frolander are serving as co-chairmen of the Beeferendum Committee for Crook County and invite all per- sons interested in the beef in- dustry to attend this meeting. The chairmen noted that cat- tlemen will be asked to make a decision in early 1980 that will affect the beef business for years to come. If the majority of cattlemen vote yes on the beef- erendum, a national program of beef research, information, pro- motion and foreign market devel- opment will be initiated. Through the program, officially called the Beef Research and In- formation Order, every cattleman will invest 20 cents for every $100 of value he adds to the herd. The money will go to a beef board, composed of cattlemen, which will be responsible for carrying out the program. Before voting on the issue, cattlemen need to know what its objectives are. These will be outlined and questions answered during the Friday evening meet- ing, the chairmen said.
