May complete road from Terry to

Co. Line

Engineers for the State Highway commission have been surveying the new proposed road from the Custer county line to Terry. This assures us that the highway from Terry to the county line will probably be connected up next year or the contract at least let. They say there is no question of this road being completed especially if the 5-cent tax on gasoline goes through. It is also said that the Powder river bridge is too narrow and will soon be abandoned and a new bridge built there. Bridge building gangs and one steam shovel are still working on the road project in Custer county on the Yellowstone trail and will continue operations all winter.

To erect wind cone at Terry Airport

A fine new wind cone, that complies in every respect with government regulations, has been received and will be erected at the Terry airport as soon as weather conditions permit or flying becomes more popular. The cone is eight feet long, illuminated for night flying, by a high voltage incandescent bulb with a silvered reflector and mounted upon a rotating axis that will make it positive in action. There has been a lull in flying in this part of the state as elsewhere due to winter weather, but in the spring renewed activity is expected and great advancement is expected in flying in this part of the country and it is expected the Terry airport which is among the best and most coinvent in the country, will be more generally used and the airport committee will then plan numerous improvements.

December Temperatures Cover 81

Degree Range

A wide range of temperatures readings where recorded for the month of December according to Weather Observer Carl Prahl, at Mildred. The high temperature of the month was 57 degrees recorded on December 2 while a low of 24 degrees below zero was reached on December 9.

Although the high reading surpassed the 55 degree top temperature reading for last year, the average maximum temperature was ten degrees lower in 1948 than in 1947, which would indicate a much lower temperature reading over a large part of the month than was recorded at Mildred last year.
