Greylock has had a big play from the tourists? It's simple — by the amount of victuals cooked on the Bascom Lodge grill. "Very Busy" That's how Mrs. Joseph F. Fitzgerald, wife of the man who directs the lodge at the summit, adjudged yesterday as belnsj atop the 3,491-foot "very busy" peak, "I worked over the grill all day and cooked a terrific amount of hamburgers and hot dogs," she said. Except for Greylock, where there was either a mob of medium hungry tourists or a small group of very hungry tourists, the public resort front was quiet this weekend in North Berkshire. It looked like the villain was the "so-so" weather — the sun playing hide 'n' seek with a heavy cloud layer, thunderstorms and occasional brisk, cool winds. Windsor Lake, the city's beach and picnic spot, had no more than 75 cars in its parking lot. Last Sunday there were 330. North Pond at the. Savoy Mountain State Forest didn't have any more cars than that. And the forest's new South Pond area was only "fairly busy," a spokesman said. Greylock Different But Greylock was different. Although quite cold — it never got above 50, Mrs. Fitzgerald said — there were many picnickers, some ham radio opera- ors and "a lot of people who »ught sweat shirts." Those who were still on the mountain after dark had ringside seats to a sharp, violent thunderstorm. It was a wild night, Mrs. Fitzgerald reported, "but it made some interesting noises." She also said it was soothing to her. Those storms, which deposited about .72 inches of rain on the city, luckily caused no serious line troubles for the Massachusetts Electric Co. or the New England Telephone * Telegraph Co, Skies over north Berkshire will clear slowly today and be fol lowed by a clear and cool night, the weatherman says. A low of near 50 Is expected and a high tomorrow of about 78. By Comparison By comparison the weekend high was 83 and the low was 67, At 8 o'clock this morning the City Hall thermometer registered 63 degrees. Showers will develop late Wednesday and again on Saturday, according to the weatherman. For the next five days temperatures will average five degrees below the seasonal normal of 68 degrees. Readings will be warmer on Wednesday, cooler Thursday and Friday and warmer again on Saturday. City Calendar Tomorrow AIRPORT COMMISSION—Conference Room at City Hall, 5:15 p.m. Coming Events LOYAL EXCELSIOR LODGE of Odd Ladies will meet Wednesday at 7:45 at the home of Mrs. Margaret Kosche of 15 Pearl St., the city engineer's office reported.
