    Campaign For
Lighted Field
Moves Ahead
Civic leaders and sportsmen inter­
ested in furthering the cause of a
lighted play field in the Canyon Tues­
day night in the Mill City fire hall
embarked with resolute hearts on
benefit ticket sales and various fund
raising campaigns with an eye on
the acquiring in the near future of
lighting facilities for the Mill City
grade school athletic field.
Russell Kelly, chairman of the
lighted play field campaign, opened
discussion on the problems aired by
representatives of the social groups
of the canyon.
Mill City Fire Chief Arlo Tuers ex­
pressed a desire for assurance from
responsible quarters that once the
athletic field is lighted those and their
successors making possible the light­
ing improvement on the Mill City
grade school athletic field will be al­
lowed the use of the field provided
they defray the operational expenses
on the lights and their activities do
not conflict with the play schedules of
the Mill City grade and high schools.
Chairman Kelly referred Fire Chief
Tuer’s inquiry to Donald Sheythe,
chairman of the board of directors of
Mill City school district 129-J. Mr.
Sheythe expressed the feeling that he
could see no objection to the use of
the lighted field by the softball play­
ers, etc., as long as the operational
expenses are properly met, having in
mind that a lighted athletic field will
benefit directly the school system.
In the course of the discussion on
the cost of operation of the proposed
athletic field lighting system, R. L.
Stewart, district manager of Moun­
tain States Power company, indicated
that it would cost roughly $2.00 per
hour’s use for power for the proposed
lighting system.
Burton Boroughs
estimated that during the course of
an evening’s lighting one light bulb
would fail and need replacement at a
cost of some $4.
In an interview on the problem of
citizen use of the lighted athletic field
on school grounds, Mill City high
principal Harrison Caughey stated
that “As long as the bills for lighting
are paid and their scheduled play does
not conflict with that of the schools'
then they can use the field.”
