White Sands Missile Range is considering the Tucumcari area as a radar site. Lt. Col. Seitzburg of the range visited Tucumcari to check the locale and said should they decide Tucumcari is the logical location for the radar, they probably would move 15 families here for six to eight weeks to install the facility. The lieutenant commented that Tucumcari Mountain would have been ideal, but it was impossible to take their equipment up that present road.
