If the ex-'amplo should spread, who knows'but that in time no protesBlounl wUl Ipok at anything under $5,000, This astonishing salary (or its pi"b-jfesslonal at once gets the Broadmoor club Into the limelight even befoi-e a ball is^ hit on its links', but it has another 'scheme, it Is reported, tor keeping In the spotlight.
