Butte Runs Out of Copper, It Still Can Be Used for A-Bomb Hideaway BUTTE, Mont., -m— If Butte ever runs out of copper, it can still rent itself out as tlie nation's premier atom bomb hideaway. There are more than 7,000 miles of underground workings—some a mile deep—beneath this "greatest iiining camp on earth." They could hold the 8,000,000 population of New York city comfortably. And they could do so with less crowding than Gotham's .people gel today on the way to work in the subway. But Butte isn't catering to fugitives from an atom-afraid world. The main things. Butte is still interested in are metal and fun. ft originally sat cm the "richest hill In the world," and it still feels it does. This hill Is a swelling buttc, a pimple compared to the Continental Divide mountains around it, that fias produced more than $2,500,000,000 in the last 84 years. The wealth has come from gold, silver, zinc and copper—but mostly from copper. Butte is a Lazarus town. It twice has been given up for dead. But If today it is a civic corpse, then it is the liveliest one in history, it is a deathless town that always has risen from the grave its doubters buried it in—and. still hale and hearty, survives its detractors those or little faith. At G8 years of age. Butte isn't looking for ghost town retirement. Its prcbler.i is to get enough hard rock miners to keep it booming. Founded in 1804, when gold was first discovered, it dwindled to GO inhabitants by 1814, when the surface placer claims were worked out. Then for eight years it revived ns a silver-mining center. And in 1882 a subboru Irish immigrant, Marcus Daly, the first of the copper kings bulled others into a realization of the real paydirt—copper, tile metal civilization has more everyday use for than gold. Fifty years ngo even the critics were saying that Bntte ngnln was through. They claimed the rich rifts of peacock ore — the highbearins- veins are multi-colored as a peacock's tail—were about exhausted. But they were wrong. Today "the richest hill" so far appears still exhasutlcs.?. it produces one-third or the nation's copper and the end l:»Vt in sight. 'Our high grade ore is just as good as it ever was," said a spokesman for the Anaconda Copper Mining Company, which owns the hill. "We don't know how much there is left _ we haven't reached the point where it would he worthwhile to make an engineering survey. "But we have readied a point where it is profitable also to mine Complcft HWM Entertainment ,. rnRULY « "buy beyond compare" in a •^-quality television combination. Hig 97 •q. in.
