Walter Lienau, superintendent of the Provo school system, states that the recent school census taken for April 1, shows that the Igloo depot section of the district has approximately 753 people of school age. This number includes those between the ages of six and twenty-one years, and the total is used as a basis of school fund apportionment.
The census also revealed that the depot has 589 children under school age which is six years. This includes all the youngsters from babies in arms on up, making a grand toatal of 1342.
The census was taken by the Kiwanis club members as a public service project, and saved the district the costs of hiring enumerators.
The Igloo residential sections, with barrack apartments, duplexes, four and six-plexes and Terteling houses are very "near neighbor" domiciles, and we belive that we can boast of having more kids, dogs and cats per square mile of residential section than any other place in South Dakota.
The canine and feline population was not enumerated but the former far out number the latter, as every small boy seems to have a pet dog and a number of "old boys" have several in their kennel yards.
Anyway there is no race suicide problem in Igloo. We are producing and taking care of our youngsters, and that is one very important factor where we can be called constructive.

Construction of Black Hills Ordnance Depot was completed in 1942 with over 5000 persons involved in the construction project.
Permanently assigned to operate the new installation were about 1400 employees which held to about 1945. During the Korean crisis over 1300 were employed but by late 1954 employment had dwindled to about 1000.
In 1955 employment dropped to about 800, in 1957 dropped still further to 700, and stabilized in 1960 to about 550.
The present employment figure lists 574 civilian and military personnel with a 1960 payroll of $3,189,726.
The mission of the Black Hills Ordnance Depot is that of receipt, storage, inspection, maintenance, issuance and shipment of ammunition and ammunition components and toxic chemical ammunition.
