Shirley Pidcock was born 1927, in Twin Falls, the daugh- ter of Bert and Bernlce Lennle ridcock. She at- tended schools In moving here in 1946. She attended Idaho State College and was em- ployed as a secretary for' Iho Farm Bureau, at First Security Bank, and as a nurse's aid in St. Anthony Hospital, She was married in Butte, Mont., Aug. 18, 1948.

The, mesa appeared to rise slighlly In (he sunlight, and then tettled back while loosened rock tumbled from the sides and dust stirred by the sudden jolt swirled trees. The blast had a force equiva- lent to between and tons of TNT. Tremor Is Recorded From a temporary forward con- trol point 214 miles from the mouth of the tunnel, scientists re- ported they saw no flash of light, felt no wave of heat, no shock wave and saw no mushroom cloud. Their preliminary report to Ihe AEC said the shot was a "success" so far as the problem of blanketing radiation fallout was concerned. "While it was almost certain that there was a slight surface pulsation of Ihe earth at the tern porary control point, observers here felt the report said. At the California Institute of Technology, approximately 300 miles distant In Pasadena, Calif., the seismograph registered the fores of tho detonation at S on the Rlchter scale, strong enough to have damaged buildings had It occurred beneath a populated area, The shock took 45 seconds to roll across the 300 miles. The University of California reismograph at Berkeley, approx- imately 350 miles away, also reg- istered the shock. This was farther than Ihe AEG had expected a recordable shock wave would travel. Before blast lime they estimated It would flz- ile out after .200 miles. "It Is Improbable that any ra- diation reached the surface and quite probable that none escaped Into the was the preliminary conclusion of lha radiation team at the forward observation cen- ter. Phone Strike roperly owners within the Ml- chaud Flats Project, I want yiu and them to know that I am decp- y concerned about the problem outlined In this petition.
