Lorenzo became president ;md chief mixologist of the Groundhog Club some 30 years afio. His mixologist title de- rives from the potenl brew concocted for the club's annual July picnic. One drink is guaranteed to make shadows see groundhogs, A picture showing the groundhog taking a swig brought heated protest from the Humane Society several years ago. Things were smoothed over only after Lorenzo swore on his honor ns chief mix- ologist that the animal was drinking a mixture of honey and other equally pure and non-alcoholic ingredients. The Groundhog Club as such came into being some fio years ago when a croup 6f the town's early German settlers look to picnicking nt Gobbler's Knoli on a .keg of beer and some of the abundant groundhog meat. Word of the a n n u a l outing reached Clymer H. Freas,. one- lime city editor of the Punxsutawney Spirit, and he christened the group the Groundhog Club. The outing, then held in late August or September, grew more and more popular. Freas, a Pcnn sylvania Dutchman, knew the legend · of - t h e · groundhog as a weather.prophet. He also knew a good story when he saw one. He placed the wcathcrworks on Gobbler's Knob, a windy hill outside Punxsutawney,. and claimed for the native groundhog copyrights,- patent rights and all other rights concerned with long-distance weather . prognostication each February 2. Today, keeping the legend alive is the chief vocation of Punxsutawney's 10,000 citizen?. The July picnic, a .stag affair, is attended by thousands. The purchase of a ticket entitles the buyer to membership in the Groundhog Club for one year. AH a member has to do is eat, drink an^d be merry and, of course, keep faith in the . groundhog, · - . ! The qualifications for mixologist arc a large amount of pride and f a i t h in the ability of ihe groundhog ns a master weather prophet and prodigious wrath and indignation to be directed at all de- Iraclors nnd imitators of Ptmxsulawney animal. Lorenzo is without peer in both departments, He fumed last y e a r ) when the National Geographic ' Society blasted, the groundhog as a lazy, shiftless animal "heaped with honors he does not deserve' and "credited with powers beyond his abilities." 'I'm surprised such a highh scientific organization would unleash such a drive," Lorenzo declared. "How can they call the groundhog all those things when we have records to prove the groundhog can be just as right- or . wrong-as our best human weatherman?" The good doctor uses stronger words when he refers to grounding clubs in Quarryvillc, Pa., Allentown; Pa., Arkansas and the atest challenger from Wisconsin. "Impostors." he snorts. "At best Johnny-come-latelics trying to horn in on the fame and publicity of the Punxsutawncy groundhog, the only true and original weather nrophct." On February 2 -- Groundhog Day--it is American tradition that if the clay is sunny and ^ the groundhog sees his shadow,' the prediction is for six more weeks of winter. If the day is cloudy anrl shadowiest, it means spring is just around the corner. The pilgrimage Lorenzo make? to the groundhog lair come dawn Saturday may be purely imaginary and undertaken from the comfort ol his favorite easy chair. But the groundhog's prediction will ring with no less authenticity r garner any less publicity. This year's February 2 doings are slated to be the biggest ever. The private dinner Lorenzo always gives spilled over into a large civic a f f a i r to be held in a church. A special railroad car from Pittsburgh will bring celebrities and newspapermen for th% event.

(NBA) them down. It is reliably reported that a special groundhog has been primed in the protocol of the occasion and will emerge from his burrow in thnc to catch the television cameras trained on him.
