By CHARLES W WALK North Iowa NewsDirector MANLY People who arent devotees of the game of golf sometimes refer to it as cow pasture pool Even this phrase however docsnlt do justice in describ ing a project of two Manly boys Perhaps the best description of the game these boys play would be front polo n Now most every boy who has found an oldgolf club and ball of his father has dug a hole in the front yard and tried to knock the ball into that hole Manlys John Ostlund and David Herzog both 13 have however refined this project Ostlunds front yard into a In fact they have made the gob course it no comparison what so ever to the plush grounds owned by golf clubs in the area Mrs Don Ostlund Johns mother points out but to the boys the front yard course serves its purpose well Actually Mrs Ostlund is being too critical when she says there isnt any comparison be tween the boys course and the other courses of the area There are similarities For example the boys course is played with a golf club and golf ball Also the course has tecs and a hole thats right Just one The course even has a par rating of 33 Those however about the only similarities between the boys course and actual golf courses Just what is the physical lay out of the front yard course Well there is only one hole but there are 10 tecs In other words the boys play toward the same hole every time but the locations of the tees vary so there actually are 10 holes Why the boys decided on 10 holes rather than the normal nine isnt quite clear It just worked out that way John points out courses single hole is just that Its a hole in the side walk in front of the Ostlund house No one recalls how it got there but its about the same FOCUS turn to 2 increase proposed Double asking of President WASHINGTON UP House

form 4 There was no organized oppo sition in sight as the measure carried endorsements from both sides of the aisle It appeared that the administrations only chance to cut down the measure would be in the Senate which will take up the bill after the House votes its approval The measure was whipped out by the House Armed Services Committee on a 331 vote ap proved by the Rules Committee and endorsed by theHouse Re publican P9licy Committee despite Secretary of Defense Robert S McNamaras cam paign for the administration bill The administration proposed a 48 per cent average increase totaling
