If it were lot that we Are sitting in this comfortably warm office with Lothing to bother us but the business of writing this thing it could not be amiss to describe conditions As horrible Boeing solicitous about humanity a welfare perhaps because of particularly Fine breakfast under the watchful Eye of Alec pc take our pen in hand today to lament our plight. First of All there is Piedmont North Carolina s Ultra Ultra golfing extravaganza the creator Greensboro Gus open. For two Days this stupendous spectacle comparable to a Hollywood premiere for those extroverts who must he Swanky has been thwarted by the unkind elements. One preacher name not furnished on request smirked with satisfy Atsion at the deluge of Snow. He As you might suspect has not patience with this sunday recreation business particularly on easter sunday. He was very pleased with the weather although his a a Gate at the night service was nothing to mention. While the preacher derived his Small satisfaction from the inclement weather the sponsors of the show Are inclined to be philosophical about it. After All they gratefully Point hut we be had two years of splendid weather for the tournament and ifs about time we had some hard Luck hut we certainly weren to looking for Snow.
