Dam Starts Water Storage / J?~il i:~: ( Over 9,800 acre feet of water is now stored behind the headgate the recently completed Keyhole dam on the Belle Fourche river of Moorcroft. Completed late in October, the dam was accepted the Bureau of Reclamation.

The blast was contained in the committee's report just received this week by Moorcroft school of- fieials. Continuing, the report also stated that the building was very poorly arranged, old and a fire hazard. Members of the committee who recently made their visff are Dr. Ray E. Robertson of the State De- partment of Education and L. R. Kilzer of the University of Wyom- ing.

"Members of the board, the fac- ulty and some of the citizens," Harding said, "have long realized that the school building is inade- quate as to size, arrangement and heating facilities. The old wooden building is kept painted and clean- ed but the classrooms, particular- ly those in the basement, are very unsatisfactory, and the whole building is vulnerable to fire." Returning to the report it said that as far as administration was concerned "a commendable effort is being put forth under somewhat trying conditions." The course of instruction was labeled "satisfac- tory" and student activities were listed as fairly satisfactory for a small school. The committee indicated that the course of studies available was average for a small school ~nd pointed out that considerable em- Continued on Last Page, See. 1) The Most Thoroughly Read Newspaper In The Black Hills !2d0~he amu----'nt f water ba~ked uP bY ~leted d~m n ~~~ 71~ Ly Local Soldier Hurt In Germany While C'O/rTZ/VCZ/VG '-,. c.ec;a co[/.47"Y Repairing" " Tank Track /official 1Newspaper for Crook County,, Town of Sundanee, and United States Land,,, Office Struck in the eye by a piece of |VOLUME LV SUNDANCE, WYOMING THURSDAY, DEC. 4, 1952 Number 49, flying steel, Sam Mollenbrink, sta-| I' ' .... tioned in the Army at Koiserslan-|~ ~me| | | | ~ II [~llllCg|rli~cgQ ~r~PAll|n ton, Germany, is now recoveringJM~v~V ~m||~C ~|~ .~||r~ I~==='~'~" 1~=v~l~ Total income for the Crook from the injury at an Army hos- m~'~u ~u muu~ a -u ,,m m~v~u~, . .. _ , .
