That the Phillip Petrol Company, manufacturers of Phillip 66 products, has also become interested in the prospects of oil around Gillette is evidenced by the fact that 12 men employed by the company in the geological department have headquarters in the old city hall building and are doing seismographical work in the county.

Selective Service Director Lewis B. Hershey announces that local draft boards will begin reclassifying about 500,000 married men without children this week, and said some will be inducted almost immediately. The draft law passed by Congress in June ordered the reclassification of childless married men from 3-A to 1-A unless they qualify for deferments on some grounds other than marriage. Hershey warned married draft registrants to notify the local boards “immediately” if they have become fathers in the past two years. He also pointed out that the new regulations change rules governing deferments in cases where a registrant claims unborn children as dependents. In the past, a registrant has been able to obtain a dependency deferment from the date his child was conceived — and on his own say so. The new regulations require a registrant to file a physician’s certificate stating that a child has been conceived.
From the Oct. 28, 1971 News Record:
A $60 million steam generating plant to be constructed at Wyodak by Black Hills and Pacific Power and Light Companies is in part “aimed at torpedoing public utilities legislation” in the state, directors of the Municipal Power Association were told Thursday. Bo Marritz, the Denver-based executive director of Missouri Basin Systems Group, charged that the two power companies have been engaged in “suspicious” activities aimed at undercutting the strength of rural and municipal electric supplies. By forcing several cooperatives into a partnership at Wyodak, Marritz claimed, Black Hills and Pacific would weaken the justification for proposed Public Utilities District (PUD) legislation in Wyoming. That legislation, if enacted, would provide means for smaller co-ops and municipal electric systems to finance their own power generating systems.
