The boys and girls from Gillette and of Campbell County are part of a national army which on Oct. 5 will begin a great attack. The attack is against the worst enemy within our borders today. The enemy could stop our factories from making guns and ships and tanks and planes. The enemy could prevent these weapons from being made by preventing manufacture of the steel out of which parts of these weapons are made. That enemy is the starvation of the steel mills. But the school pupils of our nation, organized in a great junior army, are going to fill the mills. They are going to find and bring together the things out of which tanks and ships are made — things like rusty pipe, broken bed springs, air guns that won’t shoot anymore. Around Campbell County there is junk. But after it has gone through the mills, it is bombs for the Nazis and bullets for the japs.

Another multi-million dollar coal gasification plant has been proposed for the Campbell/Converse County area, according to a news release last week by the Panhandle Eastern Pipe Line Co. Exact location of the $400 million plant was left unanswered, but the coal lands to supply it were said to be on the Halbert Matheson ranch in southern Campbell County, which was sold to Peabody Coal Co. about three years ago. Panhandle Eastern and Peabody Coal Co. have reported agreements concerning the coal to be supplied to Panhandle. A West German process developed by Lurgi Mineraloltechnik G.m.b.H of Frankfort, West Germany, is to be utilized in the plant. The coal gasification process is known as the Lurgi process of coal conversion. Panhandle Eastern transports about 7 percent of the natural gas moving today in interstate commerce.
