In 1959 Jay Hebert made two aces in one tourney. Jack Rule did the same last year. Dick Howell and Joe Campbell both scored holes in one at Florida's Lakewood Course in 1964 but were not in the same foursome. So far as PGA tournament history records, this was the first time that two holes in one were achieved by players in the same foursome.

How did the pros react to the feat? They were not too impressed. "We've all had holes in one [Barber has had eight]," said Evans, assistant pro at the Salt Lake Country Club, "so after the immediate excitement we calmed down pretty quick. Most of us would probably enjoy a couple or three birdies more."

So much for insouciance.


From the ranch house to the condominium town house, Californians have pioneered a number of ideas in shelter that have subsequently been adopted throughout the country. Now the sporting apartment has arrived. New apartment buildings come equipped with putting green, swimming pool, billiard room, sauna bath and tennis courts. The ultimate may well be the E'Questre Inn in Burbank. Not only does it have gymnasium, billiard room, lounge with dance floor, a swimming pool, and sauna—it also has a stable with stalls for 68 horses.

A path leads directly from the Inn to the miles of riding trails in Griffith Park. Humans may rent a furnished apartment, recreational facilities and a free Sunday brunch for $120 to $175 a month. A horse stall comes to $65 but the rent includes an individual tack room and cleaning and feeding the animals. As of last week 210 units contained people and 48 contained horses.


Since most of New Mexico's natural waterways are ankle deep or underground, the skin divers of the state look on the farmers' irrigation reservoirs with affection and have a deep concern for their welfare. When a reservoir on the Zuni Indian land was endangered, three skin divers in the Gallup area raced to the rescue like the U.S. Cavalry in an old western.

It seems that when the gate of the Ojo Caliente Dam was opened for a brief irrigation period, a 100-pound rock rolled into the breach and prevented the gate's closing. The reservoir was whooshing away, the Zunis were about to lose their crops, and skin divers were about to lose a recreational resource.

The Zuni leader called the Indian Service for help, the Service called the state police, and the police called Bill Runyan of the local gas company and two policemen, Don Moberly and Glenn Erickson, skin divers all. Soon the trio were down in the brutal current breaking up the boulder, which washed away, bit by bit.
