This Week in History March 11, 1922: County boundary dispute, ski jumping record, sale of mines


This week in history as reported by The Summit County Journal the week of March 11, 1922:

New Lac-Sommet border county map

The final chapter in the Lake Summit County boundary dispute was written in the Lake County Archives yesterday, when the official filling in of the new map and record of the proceedings taken by Judge Hersey’s special commission were held at the office of the county clerk and recorder. The map and court filing were filed Monday afternoon.

The boundary question has been a moot issue since the counties were established, a long series of disputes ending several years ago with the establishment of a “compromise line”, which was accepted as the real one until what molybdenum exploration began and Summit County sought to push the line of compromise into Lake County, in some cases as far as three-quarters of a mile. The case went to the district count and was decided there two years ago by Judge Hersey in favor of Lake County.



High winds prevent new ski record

High winds blowing against skiers were the only thing that prevented Dillon from setting a new world record on Monday afternoon. Anders Haugen, of Brooten, Minnesota, said last night. Haugen jumped 196 feet. His brother, Lars, of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, the current world record holder, also jumped 196 feet, but fell. He took second place with a jump of 162 feet. Oliver Kaldahl of Glenwood, Minnesota finished third with a jump of 160 feet.

The top two spots in the competition went to the Wiley brothers, Robert and Vernal, of Frisco.



“The Dillon course is absolutely the best in the world,” Anders Haugen said last night.

Molybdenum Production Corporation sells

The entire property of the Molybdenum Production Company near Climax has been sold in U.S. District Court in Denver to EJ Longyear, a creditor, according to information filed with the county clerk and recorder’s office yesterday. Mr. Longyear bet the debt at $96,637. The court appointed Harlold H. Henly as a special master to sign the deeds.

The property is in no way related to that of the Climax Molybdenum Company, it is understood, but consists primarily of the property sold by John Buffer and later improved by the Molybdenum Production Company and the Lake Placer claim.
