Thieves entered Paul Sharps' store by prying off a storm win- dow and breaking a small hole in the inside window in order to unlock it. No merchandise was taken from the store. At Circle S, entrance was made through the garage. The thieves used a crowbar to pry open the door between the garage and the service station. Bob Roadifer said there was no money at the station and that no merchandise appeared to be missing. The thieves ripped a plastic screen over a rear window at the Jack and Jill Shop but the bar- red window prevented them from entering. COhTIffUIAZG C/tOOff COUA/TY .ff'A7dv,.'

Lt. Col. Robert Cross said con- struction of buildings on Warren Peak will be completed this sum- mer. He said May, 1961 is the target date for shipping the nuc- lear plant here. From June to September, Col. Cross told the audience, the plant will be placed on foundations and the plant will get non-nuc- lear testing. The operational testing of the plant will be car- ried out from Sept. 1961 until March 1962. The evolution, development and operation of the nuclear pow- er plant was outlined by Col. Cross. He explained that the PM-1 plant being built by the Martin Company to be installed here is portable, medium - from 1,000 to 10,000 kilowatts of power - and is the first of its kind in the developmental series. The plant is the pressurized water reactor type. Col. Cross said the plant will produce 1,000 KW electricity and 2,000 KW heat - enough, he said, for 55 average homes each with an elec- tric range. He said the core in the reactor provides full plant capacity for two years before it has to be changed. The fuel for the two years, he said, would be less than 1000 lbs.

Plagued by costly fumbles, the Sundance Bulldogs opened the 1960 pigskin campaign here Fri- day by coming from behind to deadlock a strong favored Vale club, 6-6. Ted Seeley rambled four yards on an end sweep with two min. utes remaining to pull the Bull- dogs even. Fumbles and bad passes from center had Sundance in hot water several times. Vale's only score came as the result of a fumble. The South Dakota club tallied its lone touchdown after four minutes had elapsed in the open- ing period. Vale recovered a Sundance fumble and momeatl later, Jim Shuck, on a quarter- back keeper, galloped 30 yardl for the score. The game was played mostly between the 20-yard lines. Sun. dance threatened in the third quarter driving to the Vale 20 before a bad pass from center set them back to the 40. Coach Clarence $ore singled out Seeley for his ball carrying and Don Matthesen and David Sipe for their defensive play. The Bulldogs are idle thim week but meet Big Horn here Sept. 23 to open Powder River conference play.
