PAGE TEN fAHK.v cmmm* HAL BOYLE'S COLUMN O/c/ Rough and Tumble Life Of Butte, Mont.,ls Moving Out as Town Makes Progress BUTTE. Mont. fAP) — Once a*, bartender in (hi* copper mining capital of America got into an argument wilh an unfriendly customer. Before the bartender could end Ihe dtscuMlon he found It netessary to bite off the fellow's ear. He rose and flipped Hie ear on Hie bar and announced: "The next round U on (he home. Drink up, everybody." This tale of tyutcal of tlw old Butte. But it is also typical, in a way, of the new buttc. Silver Hollars Clink For Buttc is still one ol a half dozen men's towns left in the United Slate.*. It is a free-and-easy town, where Ihey give you change In clinking silver dollars' in.itcad of paper bills. It l.s a man's town xvhere Ihey lake a stranger at his word until his acts prove him a liar. This might be because this in a far west niellin" pot ol 50 nationalities, and In a town like that the only way you ran ju<!<ie anybody is by the .simple standard: -l.s he a good Kuy?" Tt mi£ht be because miners, corning up from daylong work under temperatures ranging up to 110 decrees, don't want to hear any guff as they drink their "boilermakers"—a whisky shot cha.sed by beer. The basic fart remain. 1 ; lhal Uie atmosphere or this wide-open town Is friendly-they like you until you start trouble. But If that's trouble you want, you cai) gel it fran every direction of the compass. Copper from Sweat Copper 'comes from sweat, and sweat comes from muscle, and there is a lot. of mu-scle In n miner. And when a miner uses his muscle against instead of hard rock he can raise a mighty, and quickly chance (he .silhouette or a man with buck teeth. But there tsn'.t so much ear- cb.-uvms nnd fiiee-slompfng hereabouts as there was in the old duy.s. There is a sign outside Buttc now that advises tourists: "She ii'as a bold, unashamed, rootin', toolln', hel-ioarhr camp in days gone by and still drinks her liquor straight." Bu( civilization has come to the bad, mad, glad copper camp. A half century or more ago most of the miners were single men and lived In boarding houses. Now most are married and have their own homes. There used to be 800 to 1,000 prostitutes who paid $5 a night to rent cribs In the red light district. Today there are 'probably less than 50 doing & subdued unglatnorous business. More miners now would rather 20 square dancing nr help their kids with their homework. Butfe Is ChariEiiij; Butte is a changing town. It still takes pride In Its ribald past—and there's plenty of it left—but It also Is proud of Its growing civic responsibility. You don't near anyone bragging any more that it has more dead men In its cemeteries than live men listed in the town directory. It's a great place yet for a fight or a frolic, but Butte is slowly laming down—or growing up. You know what Ihe folks are proudest about today? "It'« our high school band," several men told me. "if* then best damn band In the country—150 pieces. A lot of other cities ask to hear our kids play — Pasadena, Portland, Washington. All we have to do is pass the hat, and in no ' time at all we can raise $20.000 or more to send them.
