But Guild's photo was spotted by an IRS agent, and on Nov. 25, a marshal, an IRS agent and a policeman swooped down on Americana Lanes. They arrived just as Guild was stepping up to bowl the fourth frame in another league match.

UP FROM THE DEPTHS
In the December issue of Underwater Naturalist, biologists Wendelin Giebel, James Bergquist and David Rudman list the stomach contents of a 150-pound Atlantic bluefin tuna hooked 80 miles off the New Jersey coast. They included: an elastic ponytail holder, two cocaine inhalation straws, monofilament fishing line, fragments of drinking straws, pieces of balloons, Ziploc bag fragments, pen and marker pieces and bands used to bind newspaper for delivery. The researchers conclude, "The long evolutionary process which endowed the Atlantic bluefin tuna with its speed, stamina, power and predatory skill no longer ensures its continued fitness in an ocean littered with the smallest of our persistent plastic debris."
A FIRST STEP
Seven days after golfer Tom Watson resigned from the Kansas City Country Club to protest the blackballing of prospective member Henry Bloch, who is Jewish (POINT AFTER, Dec. 10), the club's board met in emergency session and invited Bloch to join. Bloch said that he would, and he may already be out on the course, making divots, by the time you read this.
Watson's widely publicized gesture was admirable, and so was the club's reconsideration of Bloch's application. Now, to show that the action wasn't just tokenism, the club need only start admitting other Jews, as well as blacks, Hispanics and Asian-Americans.
