As the father of a 12-year-old long-haired boy playing on a Lunada Bay Little League Tournament team, H. E. McDonald of Palos Verdes Peninsula, has been studying the "appearance and grooming code" of the California State and Western Regional Tournament.
It states, sensibly, that "hair, regardless of length, must be well groomed" and thinned out sufficiently so that a safety helmet will fit snugly on the head. But then it adds:
"No part of the mustache will extend over the mouth."'
"Nothing, in my opinion." says McDonald, "is more disgusting than a 12-year-old boy with a mustache hanging down over his mouth...."
MOUNTIES GET THEIR CAMERA
While on a fishing trip in the Northwest Territories last year, Per Sandsmark of New York City mislaid a $300 camera. Instead of reporting the loss, he just wrote it off.
Recently Sandsmark got a letter from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. They asked if he had lost a camera.
The Mounties had found the camera. developed the film and on one of the pictures spotted the registration of the seaplane Sandsmark had rented. The Mounties asked the bush pilot for the name of his passenger. End of manhunt.
