Certainly the winners of a Saints-Falcon-Steeler-Viking loop wouldn't stand much of a chance in a playoff against the winner of a Packer-Colt-Cowboy-Card race, but with the constant realignment no one team will be able to continually dominate its division as Green Bay will in the present Central Division.
ACE IN THE WRONG HOLE
I played in that tournament, and it was quite clearly indicated that a new automobile would only be awarded for aces on the par-3 holes. In fact, four new automobiles were parked on the first tee, and each car was designated as the prize for a specific par-3 hole. We were all sorry that the ace was scored on the wrong hole, but there was never any question that the hole in one did not fall within the rules established by the host club.
The tournament was an enjoyable event, and I regret to see its success marred by the false implication that the club had reneged on its offer.
However, Mr. Watson omitted one person in his article. Seasonal Park Naturalist Joan Devereaux had led an overnight hiking party to Granite Park Chalet on Saturday, August 12. She was substituting for another naturalist, who was on fire duty. During the night Miss Devereaux quickly assumed the leadership so necessary to prevent panic at the chalet. She was in control at all times, and her calm, courageous attitude inspired others and helped to bring order out of chaos.
The next morning Miss Devereaux led a party of 59 from the chalet through known grizzly country to the highway. By singing and whistling as she led her party through the brush, she helped to calm the fears of her group. Throughout the night and during the next day Miss Devereaux's leadership markedly impressed all. She certainly was one of the heroes.
Another bear entered the camp about dark to poke around a garbage can. A tourist ran up to him and shot off a flashbulb about eight feet from the bear's face. The flash lit up the entire Yosemite Valley, and it was a miracle the bear didn't knock the guy's head off.
