Jaycccs Turn Eyesores M 4 . i SELDOM DISCOURAGED, Pioneer with contemporary AT 92 Death Claims Rose Bower, 92, a pioneer South Dakotan whose interests never lagged behind the growth of her home state, her nation or the world, died early Monday following a short illness. Funeral services for the mu sician, woman suffragette, au thor and businesswoman are scheduled Friday at 2 p.m. in First Congregational Church. A memorial has been established for the Woman's Chris tian Temperance Union. Miss Bower was born in Ver million May 16, 1873, and had lived in the Black Hills since June of 1885. She attended common schools in Custer County and later was a student in the Hot Springs College, at Spear fish Normal, in Chicago Musical College, Columbia (University) School of Expression, the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston and Georgia (state) Normal. MUCH OF HER college training was gained during summer sessions when she was traveling on behalf of the National Suffrage Association or the WCTU. Miss Bower succeeded her sister, Mrs. Alice Gossage, as president of the Black Hills District of the WCTU, when Mrs. Gossage became too busy with her duties as co founder of The Rapid City Daily Journal. An accomplished musician, she appeared on platforms from coast to coast on behalf of the suffrage movement or the WCTU. She played cornet and piano and often accompanied herself on the piano while whistling. In addition to providing what she called a "side attrac tion," Miss Bower often lectured as well. Miss Bower got her musical start with the Bower Family Band of Battle Creek, the first band in the Southern Hills. She also became first trumpeter with the original Rapid City Symphony Orchestra. CONTINUOUSLY interested in the social, economic and politi cal affairs of her community, state and nation, Miss Bower frequently supported her individual views on a given topic with letters to editors of various local and national publications. She was long active in the af fairs of the Rapid City Fortnightly Club, was a charter member of the Business and Professional Women and served as president of the Bower (Custer County) Community Club. She also represented the Wom en's Fellowship on the Penning ton County Council of Churches. Miss Bower was the first li brarian in the Rapid City Carnegie Library and as though to demonstrate her varied abilities was engaged in ranching and raising livestock for many years. IN MISS BOWER S own words, explaining why she had never attempted to publish a syndicated newspaper column as requested by an Ohio edi tor, "I already had more newspaper clippings (temperance and suffrage) produced over the years of my public 'career' than I ever had space lor in my cub byholes; and it turned out I 1 Y ROSE WHISTLED, PLAYED Interests died early Monday Rose Bower was too happy pulling weeds and handling the family business in town and country . . . to dread a deadline and wasn't going to begin over." She was a member of the Congregational Church. In recent years she had confined her business interests to managing portions of the family estate. Surviving are two sisters, Mrs. M. J. (Quinnie) Everley and Mrs. Laura Van Nuys, both of Rapid City; a niece, Mrs. E. H. (Emily Bale) Myers, Rapid City; three nephews, Henry Leath Bale, New York, Kelvin Van Nuys, Wilmington, Ohio, and Maxwell Van Nuys, Denver, and five grandnieces and nephews. ,1 'II .'i fi IS ,J"-::..:....';.: ;..: .

I HUGE BOEING 727 LOOMS AT RAPID CITY AIRPORT Right landing gear encountered unexpected trouble at Houston DELAYED AT HOUSTON, BUT Large Jet Despite complications at Houston, Tex., a Boeing 727 jet airliner being demonstrated Saturday for Frontier Airlines proved itself at Rapid City and elsewhere. The demonstration was so satisfactory that negotiations were started for the purchase of three of the $4.5 million planes, with one of them to have a high priority for serving Rapid City. Delivery would be late 1966, or early 1967. Frontier officials were pleased the three-engine jet required less than half the runway at Rapid City Municipal Airport to make its landing. And after a short stay here, about half the runway was required for the plane to get back into the air. At Houston, earlier in the day, the right landing gear sank through the asphalt apron of the airport, causing a three-hour delay in the schedule. With a gross weight of 147,500 I .. t Off Omaha Street Into Mowed Field, Decaying Ashes Wjth Sunday Project Foreign Couple Grateful; Cash, Checks Back Two Norwegian tourists will retain pleasant memories of South Dakota and Mount Rushmore National Memorial because of aa experience on Saturday. Mr. and Mrs. Carson Krog-seter were visiting Rush more Cave ast of Keystone and left the area with S6oe In cash, Jfi40 In travelers chucks and their Norwegian passports on their car's trunk lid. The ttemi were In a cloth sack. When they discovered their error, they contacted Deputy Sheriff Lloyd Tyler of Hill City. He reported the loss to the sheriff's office in Rapid City, which in turn notified the city police department. Mr. and Mrs. Krogaeter were told to check again with the sheriff or police department when they arrived In Rapid City, just la rase the valuables had been turned in to authorities. Luckily, the sack was found and taken to Mount Ruth-more headquarters. When the couple checked la at the sheriff's office, they were told the money, travelers checks and passports were at the memorial and could be picked up. They returned to Mount Rush more and were grateful that someone was honest enough to return the sack.

Performs Well Here pounds, it was necessary to offload fuel in the right wing tanks and remove the passengera until the aircraft could be extricated. When that was accomplished, a fuel truck in front of the plane was stalled, and engines on the Boeing 727 were reversed to back away from the trouble spot. From there, the plane kept Its schedule of visiting points served by Frontier, and could claim to be the heaviest airplane of its type as well as the first commercial pure jet to land at the local airport. The aircraft is classified as being in the medium to short-range jet. Its distinguishing characteristics are the "T" type tail, the tip of which is 34 feet above the ground, and the three jet engines at the rear of the fuselage. The plane is capable of cruising at 600 miles per hour, and, under Frontier's plans, will be built to accommodate 103 passengers. - n I A 5 -... . t V" i vi-V J i --."' i- w - i ' . t - , - - ' ' W,..r.s".
