Of course, their families don't agree or enjoy going without their meals, etc ...... But----00000 Tuesday, 16th. A city-wide two-ball mixed foursome held at T.T. was a great success. More teams turned out for this event than any other in the last year. Quite a few of these teams were T.T. players who came in for more than their share of prizes. Winners were Mrs. and John Allee; Mr. and Mrs. Manuel Llauget; Mrs. Robert Jayroe and Ralph Gaver; Ray Knapke and Mrs. W .R. Mc Carley; Mrs. R. Hill and Karl Maas. 00000 Qualifying for the City four-ball tourney ended Thursday at T.T. Low qualifiers, Joe Torres and Charles Clark, who shot a low bali of 65. Match play starts, at 1:00 P.

A great deal of interest has been aroused; favorites are being upset all over the place and it's quite possible tha t four unknowns will wind up in the finals of the Champ ship flight for the large trophy. The third flight has already been w 9n by Mrs. Frank Porter and Frank Thomson who defeated Mr. and Mrs. O.H. Howell in a hard-fought match which ended on the last green. (Pearl Howell has come back to golf after many years absence because of illness. She sure surprised everyone including the Pro and shop staff; her golf seems as good now as it was when she quit). 00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 (When Were Born? continued) You are very inclined to overstrain your resources, perhaps unconsciously. The nervous system, mental faculties, chest and breathing apparatus are very sensitive and cease to function normally w hen you have any ailments or suffer from fatigue. You will overdo physically and mentally in any task you set yourself to do and then have to rest to restore your vitality. Plan your schedule so that you have time for rest, relaxation and diversion without neglecting your other vital interests. Your health needs constant attention. Your keynot for 1949 is stabilization of basic interests and willingness to consider new money-making ideas.
