Rotarians placed second with 404 while Kiwanis mem- .bers, lacking two to complete the team, placed third. /The high scores can be attributed to the manner in which the golfers were required to play, as evidenced by pictures here. Driving off on No. 1 was done with a "small" baseball bat. In the upper left hand corner Jerry Ferris takes his turn at bat. Jim Milder showed his baseball ability when he walloped the goll ball about as far as his drives On the other hand, Clair Blossom wore himself out before he even got started when he whiffed eight times. Bermuda shorts, which have gained popularity this year on the soli course, lent a colorful appeal when Frank Moulton, Harry Greenberg and Murray Mowers, pictured above at 'the /right, demonstrated the 1 golf ing,, ability. Herb Hedlund, is "shown above as he sunk a puitiwjthra<'TBai'ble,* another of the "crazy golf"' handicap's, as Ralph Miller looks on.
