HARDROCK Volume I December 29, 1934 Number 2 Comments which reached the secretary of the Association have been nearly unanimously (there was one exception) in favor of the idea of the HARD ROCK. Others have sent in their dollars without comment but we assume this means a favorable reaction. The idea has been expressed that three issues a year would be an aggravation, that it should be issued at least monthly. In addition to the notes gleaned from the Directory material, a number of fellows sent in additional information on themselves and others. This along with the material which we have secured from other sources has made possible this special issue, which was not originally anticipated. To include all of the material which has come in would involve practically a duplication of the Alumni Directory itself. An effort has been made to pick out what seemed to be the outstanding changes of jobs or location and to report particularly those news news and gossip items which can not be included in the directory. CHIPS Dr. O'Harra failed to recover sufficiently from his operation early in the fall to permit him to return to his office. After two minor operations at the local hospital, it was deemed best for him to return to Rochester on Christmas night. A tentative football schedule has been worked out for next year. Present plans call for a game with Spearfish on October 25. The feature seems to indicate October 25 as the proper time for Homecoming. Write it down, keep it in mind and above all, be in Rapid City. President Fenner promises to get plans under way shortly. Succeeding issues HARD ROCK will contain further information on plans for the event. Rapid City and other Black Hills communities are all het up over the Pageant of America which is to be staged in Rapid City during the months of July and August. The promoters of the pageant claim at least 20,000 persons daily will Visit the Black Hills as a result of this event. All F.E.R. labor has been withdrawn from the School of Mines Campus project for use on the pageant bowl and other city projects. This condition coming as a climax to the depleted force which we have had during recent months, leaves the S. of M. project about half completed. Changes made in the basement of the Main Building have permitted the setting up of a stone cutting and polishing lab. Experiments are being made on a diamond charged band saw for cutting large specimens. If present difficulties of the bronze band breaking at the welded joint can be solved, we expect to have the world by the tail for cutting large stuff. There was apparently some misunderstanding relative to the Association dues. Many have already sent in their dollars, the treasurer will be glad to credit the rest upon receipt of the proper legal tender. This special issue of HARDROCK is made possible by the dues which have been sent in, plus the extra contribution of one alumnus for this purpose. Other special numbers will be sent only to those from whom dues have been received. The spring and summer numbers will be sponsored by the School and mailed to all. To Noel Gagstetter '34, should go the bouquet for the athletic notes. We hope we may continue his section as a regular feature of HARDROCK.
