Speculation on the net price a 31⁄2-year-old Holstein steer owned by J.A.G. Seybold could bring on the market ended when Cliff Davis said that it would sell at $300. Cliff bet a cigar on the $300 price after Seybold had told him that buyers had offered up to $250 for the steer. The owner commented that he had turned that price down as well as other lower ones as the animal had grown to become a real pet. The steer would follow anyone around like a dog, nudging his nose in their pockets in search of sweet stuffs. The animal was shipped and upon receipt of the returns. Seybold got $299.20 and the cigar.

Camel Lanes will become the only bowling alley in Gillette that sells liquor after the City Council voted Monday to issue its last outstanding liquor license. In a speech to the council, Camel Lanes owner Jerry Schilling said he needs to be able to serve liquor to attract bowlers and statewide tournaments. “The won’t give you a bowling tournament unless you can provide something to relax with,” he said. He estimated 95 percent of the state’s bowling alleys serve liquor. He submitted a list of 700 people who favor granting a liquor license, and noted that he employs 17 people with a monthly payroll of more than $10,000.
He also promised to keep the bar small, not allow children inside it and close it on Sundays unless there is a tournament.
