TURN IN GOOD SCORES
Cornhusker Golf Club turned out in
a wave which resulted in the best golf
shot since the Club was formed. Bill
Graves was the “Hot Shot” turning in
a score of 71 which is not often re
corded on this course. “B-29” O’Toole
and “Marine” Murrell were shelled
off of the course by “Grave-yard”
Graves and Malcolm Geo. Scott in the
only partners match played. “Ken
Smith" Wilson stood on the first tee
and watched with amazement as Mal
colm sank a long putt on the first
green for a three. He played the first
nine rather jittery from the effects,
finishing the last nine with a sloppy
38. “Mort” Thomas shot a very smooth
and commendable, game, but claims he
was hampered by the inconsistency of
his competition. “Marine” Murrell
came home from the “Wars” with a
“Pro” diploma secured somewhere in
the Virginia Hills. The boys warned
that the “Marine” was teaching golf
in Wash. D. C. and was thinking ser
iously of making that his living. But
a few of the boys have reversed his
ideas pronto. The following scores
were turned in Sunday: Graves, 71;
Scott, 74; Thomas, 75; O’Toole, 76;
Wilson, 79; Murrell, 79; Solomon, 85;
Hollins, 88; Collins, 89; Caldwell, 93;
