It'll be an event on a par with a PGA gathering, some of the 158 or so members believe. TJien, at some yet undeter- date, will come the K- City "first invitational. You must draw greatly on the imagination to know what a big event that will be; In other words, the new Knox City golf course is about fin- ished. And, to put it mildly, the fel- lows built it by hand are quite proud of their handiwork. The nine-hole course is off the road west, as you drive from Kule, Rochester and O'Bri- en into Knox Gity from the south. As yet it is unmarked by a sign. Some traveling men have sug- gested to the K-Citians that they put up a proper marker. "Looks like a one traveler suggests. "May be one, if some of the scores don't says Postmaster Jeff Graham. Par for the course is 36. What's the course record so far? "Thought you'd never Graham sighed and launched into his favorite golfer story. "Now. I got hot the other day. Got a 33. w The K-Citians at the drop of a tee, brag on their new golf facilities for they know, finan- cially and physically, the origin. A golf association was formed to build the course on a piece of city Goal was 150 members. But "demand" was so great they "let in" eight or nine more families, Graham grinned. Joe Averitt is president, W. F. Shannon secretary treas- urer of the association. The association members manned shovel and dump track to lay the water, set the greens, to build t' 2 course under direc- tion of a golf-club-expert they hired to tell 'em how. The greens, planted two and a half months ago, are in fine shape already. Members have purchased a building from the General American Oil Co. camp out west of town and are in the process of moving it onto the site b become a clubhouse with pro shop and locker rooms. Knox Citians who never be- fore swung a golf club are hard at it now. "We're having special class- Graham said. "Lessons in how to fix ball marks, now to replace divots and how to let faster players play through." If there are any deficiencies anywhere about the course, you'd never learn of them trom a .club member. The association has a couple of hard and fast rules, Graham says. One is this: No derogatory re- marks about the course. If you can't say something nice like "It's kind of sandy over there, but it's a good place to practice sand don't say anything. The second club rule is this: If you think something needs doing, you may go ahead and do it. "If you believe there are grassburrs in the Gra- ham explained, "you can go pull 'em out. If you think a spot needs mowing, there's the mow- er." Asian Nations Set Anti-Red Efforts By DON MCKEE ALBANY, Ga. Mar- tin Luther King Jr. said Sunday hat relief was being sought from a federal injunction barring him and several other integration lead- ers from further desegregation activities here. The order was issued by U.S. Dist. Judge J. Robert Elliott at Columbus on Friday night. King said at a news conference that he would abide by the order. He also charged that a few fed- eral judges in the South "are en- gaged in a conspiracy with state SEOUL, South Korea tcHigcncc officers from five Asian nations mapped anti-Communist moves during a five-day meeting here last week, the South military junta announced.

James Grant, left quietly after the minister prayed for an end to segregation! There were no arrests. Calling Elliott's order "unjust and King said his legal staff would seek dissolu- tion of the injunction in a petition Monday before U.S. Dist. Judge W. A. Bootle of Macon on grounds that Elliott lacked jurisdiction. Meanwhile, efforts were under way to obtain from Judge Elbert Tuttle of the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta an order va- cating Elliott's injunctive action which banned the defendants from promoting or taking part in dem- onstrations, boycotts or other pro- test activities. Despite the order, 161 persons marched to the downtown area Saturday night and were jailed. King and Dr. W. G. Anderson, head of the Albany Movement, in a joint statement said, "We re- gret to say that recent events have revealed to us that there are some few federal judges in the South who are engaged in a conspiracy with state and local political leaders to maintain the evil system of segregation."

The group said 'the Security Council should "inquire into the advisability and possibility" of admitting both East and West Germany, or a reunited Germany, to the-United Nations "and should recommend appropriate action to the.

The Social Security compromise plan beaten by the Senate last week would have provided only for hospital and nursing home :are but Morton feels physicians fees should be provided, too. Speaking on a transcribed radio interview program he said: "I ihink that in an affluent society such as ours the federal govern- ment has the responsibility for medical care, in all its phases, to the needy aged. It's costly, but we're going to have to face up a it someday. I'd just as soon 'ace up to it now." Sen. Thomas H. Kuchel, R- Calif., who was one o! the five Republicans backing the defeated measure, defended it Sunday and vigorously denied it was aimed at making physicians "wards or stooges or agents of the govern- ment." Speaking on a recorded radio interview program, Kuchel said: 'Since 1946, the consumer price index has risen 65 per cent. Medi- cal care has increased 82 per cent. Hospital room rates have risen 203 per cent and hospital insur- ance premiums have risen 294 per cent. Thus, there is a problem for elderly Americans." Kuchel said "some doctors in our state have contended that our bill" would socialize medical prac- tice.

Any vacancies remaining after the deadline, the company has said, will be offered to co- pilots. The flight engineers' Washing- ton office reported Sunday it had contacted all 615 of its striking members and had found only 12 who were willing to return to work under terms offered by East- ern. Eastern said last week "impres- ive numbers" of the strikers were willing to return to work. The union said aH 12 of those willing to return to work were 'supervisory types." A spokes- man said there were about 40 'supervisory type" jobs among Eastern engineers. Secretary of Labor Arthur J. Goldberg has asked Eastern, the striking engineers and the Air Line Pilots Association to meet with him at 2 p.m. Monday in an effort to find a solution to the stalemate. Numerous meetings lave been held before and since the start of the strike. The latest sessions ended about a week ago.
