MDU RePOrts Show Decrease MDU released third quarter operating figures recently in its interim report to stockhold- ers, which shows a slight de- crease in earnings as compar- ed to the same period in 1970. Per share earnings were down 5 cents, from the $2.68 report- ed last year. Gas revenues were up 6.6per cent while electric revenues in- creased 4.8 per cent. Consoli- dated net income of $6.888 mil- lion was 1.7 per cent belowthat of the same period in 1970. The MDU interim report also announced the company's inten- tion to build 142 miles of natur- al gas pipeline to serve the communities of Cavalier, Graf- ton, Langdon, Park River and Walhalla, N. D., as well as the two ABM sites nearby. Thispro- ject is estimated to cost $4.3 million. Construction will start in the spring of 1972. Car Kills Cow A 60 - year - old Fairview man hit and killed a cow when it suddenly walked onto High- way 200, about 4 miles north of Sidney. Gene Gagner, who is employ- ed with Blue Rock Products in Sidney, was alone in his car when the 5:30 p.m. mishap oc- curred on Monday, causing $450 to $500 damage to his late model Ford, according to Mon- tana Higlay Patrol. Gagner was traveling toward Fairview at the time. There were no injuries, other than to the cow, which belonged to Mer- rill Larson, northwest of Sid- ney.

The front several rows of seats in the grandstand are se- verely distorted due to settle- ment of rotted timbers. One stairway has steps sloping con- siderably and alternately up and down rather than being level. Seat benches throughout are weathered and intx)or condition. It is anticipated the rot near the ground will continue and very possibly at a more rapid rate. The seating will become progressively more distorted and less useable. However, a sudden collapse of a portion of the structure is not, inmY Opin- ion, likely to occur until con- siderably more rot takesplace. I suggest a detail structural study be made to determine the cost of renovating and upgrad- ing the existing grandstand. H this renovation expense proves to he a major portion of new construction, then consider- ation should be given to a new structure utilizing steel and A TREASURE IS FOUND - Mrs. Ella Freier Hammill of Spearfish, S. D., is:the great granddaughter of Sgt. Aquila Coonrad (in the picture she's holding), who was involved in trying to prevent a military holdup near Burns Creek in 1884, when Major Charles Whip- ple, a paymaster, was taking money to soldiers in Sidney. Coonrad was shot and killed while attempting to stop the seven highway robbers. Mrs. Hammill re- cently began searching for more information on her great grandfather and found, among other things, the picture, after contacting Charles Evanson of the Mon- Dak Historical and Arts Society in Sidney. i , u m, FOR RENT: One bedroom fur- nished apt. 482-2409.

Thanks to all remembering us with cards, memorials, flow- ers and food. Also to the res- cue crew; Father Harney, the pallbearers, vocalists and la- dies who served dinner follow ing the funeral. A special thank you toJacque Lemieux for sharing withushis the existing concerts footings to replace the rotted bottom por- tions of supporting wood studs prove worthwhile. In such a renovation, the existing wood* members would he separated from the ground a sufficientdis- tance to prevent future rot. Re- novation should also consider replacement of all seatbenches with aluminum benches and cov- ering of treads with a durable waterproof material. The possible utilization of the fairgrounds for fall fnotball games will be considered at Future Planning Board meet- ings. Problems for football games at the fairgrounds in- elude the sizable rodeo arena area separating thagrandstands from the center grassed area. Utilization of the central area by livestock and for other pur- poses during the summer would make it difficult to maintain the desired turf for the fallfootball season. However, multiple utili- zation of facilities such as sug- gested is certainly the type of consideration that the compre- hensive planning process is looking for. ___ THIAT|.I Thurs.

Sugarbeet growers for Holly In addition tO HollY ? pay- Sugar Corporation' s Sidney factory district received almost as much money this last week- end as an initial pvj, ment for their 1971 crop as they earned for last year's entire crop, ac- cording to Charles Marshall, agricultural manager for the factory district. Checks totaling $6t066,000 were mailed Nov. 20 to grow- ers covering beets delivered through Nov. 9. The payment is just $139,000 short of the total of all payments for the 1970 crop. Marshall said allgrowers are to be congratulated because the crop. averaged about 19 tons per acre with above average sugar content. merit, growers also will receive a conditional payment for their 1971 beets under theU. S. Sugar Act. This payment, which isex- pected to average $2.20 a ton, is financed through a federal tax on the sugar industry. Growers averaged $13.31per ton of beets compared with 1969' s record per ton of $11.54 for Sidney beets, Marshall said. Under Holly's contractterms growers receive an initial pay- ment in November of the har- vest year based on the sugar content of their beets. A final payment is made in October of the following year based on the final net selling price received by Holly for the sugar produced.
