Aldermen Upset With Lake Club Club's Lease Discussed By HERB JOHNSON Herald Staff Writer The qsestion of the lease held by the Henderson Lake Golf Club came up for discus- sion again at Monday's meet- ing of city council. It had arisen most recently at the last regular meeting, at which Alderman Jim Anderson requested that City Mauager Tom Ferguson proceed with all haste on a'review of the lease. At the time, Aid. Anderson made remarks on the opera- tion of the club which were later clarified in a public state- ment. He suggested that green fees were high enough to dis- courage the casual golfer and there was a general feeling on the part of the public that the club was attempting to exclude this type of golfer. Paul Matisz, representing the Henderson club, said he had been distressed over re- ports carried in the news media concerning the club. Aid. Anderson replied that he had "popped off" at the time because he was exasperated over the lack of speed with which the review of the lease was proceeding.

He pointed out that while there has been an increase in green fees, it was not out of line with general increases in the cost of living and com- pared favorably with fees at comparable courses. Aid.

The Uruguayan win came in 1950 when Brazil had built a huge stadium for the world championship and hoped to win its first title.

But Uruguay took to the fie against Brazil and in the fin game walked off with a 2-1 vi lory and ruined Brazil's planm celebration. Brazil later won the Ju Rimet Cup in 1958 in Swede and in 1962 in Chile. Urugii resides 1950, had won the fi up games in 1930. Italy als las been the world socce champ twice in 1934 and 1938.
