   Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - May 2, 1962, Abilene, Texas                               WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES WE SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT ABILENE, TEXAS, WEDNESDAY MORNING, MAY 2j 9908 81ST YEAR, NO. 319 Billy Maxwell shot a four-tin- der-par 67 a few days ago in the Greater Greensboro (N. C.) Open Golf Tournament and the story of his blazing round in- cluded this notation: "The wind, maintaining a steady 20- mile per hour clip; from the ear- ly morning hours, swept across the Sedgefield Coun try Club course in gusts that ranged from 40 to 60 miles per hour That story prompted an Abi- lene week-end golfer to advance a theory: Billy Maxwell's West Texas upbringing stands him in good stead. Let the wind blow. It doesn't bother him as much as it does others, conditioned as he was in boyhood by the winds whicji sweep Abilene golf cours- es. In an effort to prove this the- ory, Maxwell's files in The Re- porter News "morgue" were searched for weather notes. The files, incidentally, are thick with stories of his golfing ca- reer since his Abilene High days. True, in many of the clip- pings of Maxwell victories there are no mentions of the weather. A story out of Mexico City in 1953 telling of his winning the Mexican amateur championship by defeating Frank Stranahan 8 and 6 does, in fact, note spe- cifically that "weather was clear and sunny." (Also, the wind may not have been men- tioned in stories of Maxwell vic- tories in Abilene, Odessa, Hobbs, N.M., and such points because the wind was no news.) But in support of the theory were found: In the Baton Rouge Open in 1955 (Maxwell went to the playoff with a 71) "gusty winds sent the mercury sWd- ding 30. degrees during the.all- in the Oklahoma City Open in 1956 Maxwell play- ed what was described as a "red hot round" over "Ihe wind swept and in the Masters Golf Tournament at Augusta in 1958, "a bone chilling wind dropped tem- peratures into the upper 40s..." In that tourney Maxwell took over the lead briefly and went oh to place. Could be the the- orist has a point. Charles Davison. 566 E, N 22nd, is an Abilene television re- pairman. He's also a "lookalike." It has come to be ordinary, Mrs. Davison says, for strangers they meet to look at him and ponder, "Haven't I seen you somewhere And then the strangers think and dig up the answer, "Oh, I know. You look just like John It happens several times a week, Mrs. Davison says. And, you know, except for the haircut, they do look alike. See?

The report of the industry, la- bor and public members compos- aearly ing the committee was unanimous. Henry Ford II, head of the Ford Motors, objected to most of the proposed saying. "The present present 80-day injunction provis- ions of the law. The president would be authorized to direct the parties involved to continue or re- sume operations in whole or in part for periods up to 80 days.
