Edgar Kennedy It's a major statement or appointment or his score for a round of golf. But, by and large, the President's visits are taken in stride by official Augusta and Its overflowing population. There are three major reasons: 1. The expressed purpose of his visits Is golf—plus some relaxation from presidential duties. 2. The Augusta National is a private retreat, catering exclusively to its approximately 200 members. 3. Augusta already has its hands full with the influx of population from the Savannah River plant the Atomic Energy Commission is building a few miles away in South Carolina. Not Even the Church Not even Reid Memorial Presbyterian Church, where the President and first lady worship during their visits, has experienced any great effect. When the Eisennowers come to Augusta—accompanied by a platoon of Secret Service agents— they go into seclusion at the Augusta National site of the annual Masters Golf Tournament. So far the President has occupied the neat, white frame cottage of Bob Jones, Atlanta's grand slam golfer and president of the National. The cottage; a few hundred yards from the main clubhouse, overlooks the 18th green. An architect now is .working on plans for a new cottage. It will be the property of the club, but will be offered the President for his use during visits here. Security measures are left to the Secret Service guardians but the club is erecting a high wire fence around the 365-acre grounds. "We are doing this both to insure more privacy for our members as well as a security measure for the President," said Clifford Roberts, a club official.
