ASSOCIATED PRK8S BKBVICK THE BLACK HILLS EVENING NEWSPAPER THIRTY-FOURTH YEAR LEAD, SOUTH DAKOTA. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1827 PRICE FIVE CENTS WORK ADVANCES i lSflKSSP DEFENSE SCORES iu uii initial nil nut! RAPIDLY ON ML RUSHMORE Washington Figure k Slowly Tk ing Shape On Granite Mountain Side. Son the IN OIL TRIAL KEYSTONE, Oct. 28. Under the expert direction of construction sup erintendents, the Washington ngure one of four presidents to be etched from the eranite of Mt. Rushmore near here Is slowly talcing shape, Harold P. Munck, chief clerk, reports today. Gutzon Borglum, sculptor, who - is working on models at pre' ent in his studio at San Antonio, Texas, is expected here within short time to take over the active management of the project. Cold weather will have but little effect upon the workmen, Mr. Munck states, since material for a shelter has been hoisted to the top of the rock-faced mountain. Construction steel will be set In the granite and a frame shelter will soon be com pleted. Powder was used Wednesday night for the first time in chipping off portions of the rock. "It was chief ly for experimental purposes, but It was found to be highly satisfactory, Mr. Munck said. He explains that powder will not be used very often and the utmost caution Is to be em ployed by the men who handle the explosives to avoid any danger of cracking the portions which will be used for the figures. "One complete layer of granite has been taken from the area which will be used for the Washington figure. Mr. Borglum painted the areas on which work was to be carried on before he left here," Mr. Munck stated. "There are six drills or jack-hammers working daily. A force of 25 men are employed on the project. A stone cutter with feathers and wedges is also being used," he adds. As a brief description of the work thus far, Mr. Munck said: "A power plant has been installed at Keystone, about three miles from the project. The power is carried over a transmission line to the site of operation. There we have a small village. A well equipped blacksmith shop with forge and drill sharpeners; bunk house, dining hall, compressors, and smaller improvements make up the operating base. "Steel cables lead from the top of Mt. Doane (named for Doane Robinson, former state historian and secretary of the Rushmore association), to the top of Mt. Rushmore over which all materials are transported to the place where the men are working. "A flight of wooden steps has been built from the base of the mountain to the top. There are 506 steps with 45 inclined platforms, giving an Idea of the height of the project. A small stream near here has been dammed and from it is supplied water for cooling the compressors. A large block of granite from the mountain was recently taken from the project and placed on exhibition in the Commercial Club quarters in Rapid City where it Is attracting considerable attention, it is understood. Senator Peter Norbeck, who has been in St. Paul and Minneapolis in the interest of the project, visited the the site Wednesday afternoon.

(JP) With New Mexico national guardsmen assigned to strike patrol duty and Colorado troops ready for mobilization, Industrial Workers of the World today mustered hundreds of pickets to extend the state wide coal strike. Fourteen national guardsmen were ordered to Colfax county in northern New Mexico yesterday by Governor Tillon following reports that the I. W. W. intended to attempt to close the mines there. This action was followed by reports from the adjutant general to Governor Adams of Colorado that state troops were ready and could be mobilized in a few hours. The I. W. W. leaders met the threat of state interference by assembling at Walsenburg, in southern Colorado, for a drive on the Dewey mine operating in that district.

(JP) A probable move already is on foot on Capitol Hill to bring a naval building program forcibly before the approaching session of congress. While as yet plans of big navy men men remain in a somewhat nebulous state there is a positive current of thought among a number of members that failure of the Geneva conference calls for a serious consideration of the advisability of providing funds for additional fighting craft.

Morrisey, republi can state committeeman of Stanley county. Dr. Morrisey has written every west-river editor and many west' river friends of the former secretary of state and incumbent director of motor vehicles, suggesting that any comment or suggestions concerning Mr. Coyne's candidacy "will be ap preciated. "With several announced and pros' pective candidates for governor in the field from east of the river, it is only natural," Dr! Morrisey said. "that the west-river country should emphasize Its only claim for recognition in the candidacy of C. E. Coyne, of Fort Pierre, for lieutenant governor. "Mr. Coyne, purely a west-river man, viewed both from point of res idence and personality, is well and favorably known over the entire state, having credibly served the past four years as secretary of state, and who went out single-handed during the past state primary and captured 40 per cent of the republican votes for governor against a man, who up to that time, was regarded as invincible."

In addition to the amount paid for the beets there will be the value of the by-products the value of the tops to the farmer, and the value of the pulp and molasses as feed. This amounts to a considerable sum when it is remembered that the by-products from an acre ' of beets, three tons of tops, four tons of pulp, and six-tenths of a ton of molasses, will put more fat on a steer than an acre corn.

ROAD MAGNET TO COVER BLACK HILLS HIGHWAYS Will Make Trip to and State Northern Park Hills COMPLETE STILL OUTFIT CAPTURED BY AUTHORITIES After three months unsuccessful RAPID CITY, Oct. 28. The tire puncture average on roads in the Black Hills is expected to be lessened considerably since the state highway road magnet is soon to go into action In this district, E. W. Meeker, Pennington county highway superintendent said yesterday. The magnet is drawn over the roads by a truck. A generator and engine are carried and the magnets hang down to a plate which comes within a short distance of the ground. It covers an area of about nine feet, a round trip being necessary before a road is "swept." The magnet arrived here Wednes-j- l' day, coming by way of Chamberlain. ' ' T 1b that tha tnirl, ..rill i " Will tomorrow prove a jinx for the Gold Diggers and break the charm of 15 consecutive years of victory over their ancient pigskin rivals from down the gulch, or will the Diggers add the eleventh Deadwood scalp to their collection? This was the question that was foremost in the minds of Northern Hills football fans today, with the annual classic between Lead and Deadwood high school elevens slated for tomorrow afternoon in the Dead-wood Amusement park. The Diggers are inclined to believe that tomorrow afternoon's event will pass into football history as the sixtenth straight win for the up-gulch high school but are not rashly overconfident. The Deadwood boys will appear on the field tomorrow afternoon with an entirely clean slate for this season, brandishing the scalps of Stur-gis, Spearfish. Belle Fourche, the Rapid City Indians and Chadron, and apparently reasonably confident that then can lift that of the Gold Diggers. Lead so far this season has two defeats chalked against them. one at the hands of Aberdeen and the other at the hands of the Rapid City Cobblers. Aberdeen and Rapid, however, are two of the outstanding hig.i school teams in the state, and as yet Deadwood has had no opportunity to try its mettle against teams as strong as these. That tomorrow's game will be one of the best that has been played between the traditional rivals of the gulch in many years, is the opinion of most fans. The ranks of both squads have been depleted by injur ies. Townsend, regular quarterback on the Lead lineup, is on crutches with an injured knee and will likely be out of the games for the re mainder of the season. Kurtti, Lead half, was kept from practice this week because of illness but has recovered and will take part in the game tomorrow. Rosy" Roe, Notre Dame,- will referee the match; Wipf, Dakota Wesleyan will be umpire, and Peterson, School of Mines, will be head linesman. Average weights show that the Lead men have considerable edge. The Lead line averages 159 pounds, the Deadwood line 148. The Lead backfield averages 148 pounds and the Deadwood averages 147. The entire weight average of the Lead lineup is 155 while that of Deadwood is 148. Following are the prospective lineups, their positions, weights and numbers: Deadwood Lineup Player Pos. Wgt.
