• •• PRESIDENrs MESSAGE TO MT. HAWLEY MEMBERS: The Board of Governors consider it a pleasure to present to the members of Mt. Hawley-"HOOKS and SLICES" in a new form. This medium should serve to better acquaint each one with the many activities at the Club. In this first effort to produce a Club magazine, we realize many improvements can and will be made and with a little more experience, hope to give you a publication of which you will be justly proud and glad to receive each month. To Dr. L. E. Steward, Chairman of the Publication Committee and his capable assistants, Mr. Earl Ferryman, Ben Feuchter, DeForest Wead, Bruce Black, and Robert Steel, no end of credit is due, after several weeks of planning and hard work, for their splendid maiden effort. The members can also be of considerable help in improving this paper by offering worth-while suggestions and submitting interesting news items that they would like to have published. So let us, each and everyone, lend a hand to make this latest Mt. Hawley feature a permanent and interesting part of the Club. ~~ (

Yours very truly, FRANK L. HAZEN.

Welcomes . 25 Additional Members

The President and Board of Governors have decided that inadequate facilities for the dissimination of information pertaining to the various functions and activities of the club have produced a need for a magazine to replace our present bulletin. To accomplish this, a publishing committee has been created to promote and publish, monthly, an official club magazine, to be known as "Hooks and Slices". It shall be the purpose of this magazine to carry to the membership all news of the club, reports of all Chairmen of various committees on past functions, announcements of coming events, and many other feature articles. Any member having a news item or announcement of interest, is invited to submit the same to the club auditor for publication. Inasmuch as it will require perseverance and experience to build up a publication worthy of our organization, we request your indulgence in our embryonic attempt. Especially, we will appreciate constructive suggestions designed to further the instrumentality and success of this magazine. The committee wishes to publicly express its thanks to those loyal members whose advertising, business and professional cards have made this possible at a minimum expense to the club, and request that the membership extend its thanks by reading the list, that each may become acquainted with other members' business or profession. In conclusion, may we enlist your cooperation to the extent of increasing our good fellowship and loyalty for the common purpose of a bigger and better Mt. Hawley Country Club. Publishing Committee, L. E. Steward, Chairman.

Of all the events which have rolled into the Mt. Hawley "Doins' Calendar", not for many a day has any inspired such curiosity as Playday, up June 9. No laggards in the seeking of the inside dope, the perennial Mt. Hawley curiosity seekers are speculating on the whatabouts of this new event. Reposing grandly in the Grille Room is a large signboard scheduling the golf foursomes, Brother Sherertz Mimeograph has turned out yards of paper calling the attention of the faithful to the party, and round-table discussions fill in a few informational gaps. However, try to get the Committee to divulge what surprises and what events lie in wait for the unwary - what to expect or not to expect on this Day of Daze! This much, at least, is knownthe entertainment starts at noon and is to continue long into the night without interruption. Considerable of the fun will take place on the greensward of the tees and holes pasture. However, that's as far as Dr. J. F. Herman, Chairman of the Sports and Pastimes Committee, and Howard Steele, Chairman of the Entertainment Committee would go.

"You will have to wait and see," the latter said with a faraway gleam in his eye. "Good games will go to pot; confirmed potters may rise to the magnificent heights of the gay nineties. Only time will tell."

For those whose wont is to play their shots from the arid wastes of desert sands, the news that several Oases will be established at strategic points on the course will be particularly welcome.

The Committee did reach down into their long grey beards (grey from worrying about how much HOOKS AND SLICES would find out) to quote the following prizes: one dozen golf balls for every eagle; twelve merchandise prizes for the lowest three scores in each of the following handicap groups1-6, 7-10, 11-15, and 16-up. This is to insure that even the grave diggers and snake killers will have a chance to bring home the bacon.

The daytime piece de resistance being the ancient and honorable game of golf, the first of the large caravan of foursomes will get under way at 8 A.M., and succeeding ones will follow at seven minute intervals throughout the morning.

There will be a Blind Bogie prize and a Door Prize (or rather a Tee Prize). The awards will be on display that all may see -- both winners and the rest of us. "Plavdav" itself of course is for the entertainment of guests of the members in addition to the members themselves. Since the expectation is that over 90% of these guests will be from out-of-town, a special prize will be given to the guest arriving from the farthest point from Peoria.

In the evening, typical Mt. Hawley goodfellowship will hold forth once again in a huge stag dinner. Thus, the Committee isn't secretive to the vanishing point. It is easy to see that there are many hours of fun to be had June 9. The more guests present, the more successful the party. Well worth the $5 per person (which includes luncheon at noon, dinner, plenty of drinks, and all entertainment) is Mt. Hawley's Ple yday. All is in readiness - the parade is ready to begin. 'Twill be a day of Carnival festivity - the goose hangs high all day and night on

the dale of June 9.

Fun from Morn 'till Morn Play Day, June 9

With Art Andrews, Pro.

THINGS I SEE AND HEAR: Gene Modieska's follow-thru cn his putts -ii's marvelous; Kenny Ames, the club's longest hitter (with apologies to Harold Pinnell), occasionally hooking or slicing one clear across three fairways; Dr. Garrett knocking them into the gulley, and asking Bill, the Pro's assistant, the price of a bushel of balls.

On orders from President Hazen, your Pro has turned columnist. We will say this, though - that aside from the literary efforts of Yours Truly, this magazine is going to be entertainment plus. Congratulations to Mt. Hawley, and everyone concerned in bringing out this brand new HOOKS AND SLICES. The 1938 golf season started out with a bang 'way back in March, but the recent wintry winds of the week-ends have slowed us up. However, you can't stop our Mt. Hawleyites from playing when the season of spring comes around. Rainiackets, windbreakers, and multi-colored umbr~llas have dotted the course. Regardless of the weather, your Pro hasbeen busy on the teaching grounds.

Memorial Day Opens Summer Season The summer social season got under way with a "bang" Decoration Day weekend. Saturday night, a large group of members and guests danced to the sophisticated rhythm of Jack Davis' band, a newfound Mt. Hawley favorite. Dancing was preceded by dinner, and special entertainment was furnished by the "Sweet Girl Trio;'. On Memorial Day itself, the shimmering aquamarine of Mt. Hawley's swimming pool officially received the season's first plungers. The tennis courts, picnic grounds, and playgrounds were already in midseason popularity. Golf events included the finish of the Governor's trophy tournament, and driving, approaching, and putting contests for both men and women. The evening's entertainment consisted of a variety moving picture show for children and adults. Both comedy and travel pictures were enthusiastically received. It was a full day and a fitting prelude to summer. As a curtainraiser, the Decoration Day entertainment was a good preview of the good things in store for this summer.

You Can't Win, If .....•.. Yeu can't win if you don't turn in your score. Just the other day, a group of our lady golfers all had a spot of tough luck on a certain hole, thus bringing out such remarks as, "Scratch my score" and "I don't know, or care, what I had". One of the ladies nonchalantly said, "Oh, throw away the score card." Now, the caddy was a very literal chap, so he did just that. Tiny flakes of score card fluttered into the No. lOgulley. Games being obstinate things, one of the foursome was in a positien at the end of the match to want to turn in her score. But there was no score-at least there wasn't until the literal caddy went scurrying into the gulley after the. pieces. Fortunately, he found them ail, and the score was saved. However, it's not always so easy as that ("easy" in the relative). To make a correct distribution of prizes, and to keep the handicaps correct, all scores, good or bad, should be turned in. In this way there can be no mistakes.

Good news for those golfers whose bane of the game is having to putt over, around, or under their opponent's ball is the new rule on putting.

Mr. Lynn Tracy was the first president of Mt. Hawley. The sterling silver Tracy Cup was won permanently in 1936 by Mrs. Joe Herman. In town for the luncheon on the day the cup was won, Mr. Tracy, now a resident of Chicago, gave another cup. This is the one for which the ladies are currently playing. The trophy must be won twice in succession for permanent possession-Mrs. DeForest Wead won one leg on it last year.

Congratulations The following Mt. Hawley members have been honored by other organizations. H 0 0 K SAN D SLICES here expresses the hearty congratulations of the entire Mt. Hawley membership to them.

Newlin, Reelected Secretary, Illinois State Dental Society.

From now on, the U.S.G,A. requires that when all players' balls are on the green, the one nearest the hole should putt first. Following him should be the next nearest, on down the line to the farthest. Moreover, this necessarily provides for. the holing out of each player before the next player putts. No putts are to be conceded. Pro Art Andrews, the Golf Committees, and the U.S.G.A. all have a few grey hairs from this putt conceding, And the self-conceding makes the greyest ones!

Wonder how many of you Eagle Eyes noticed the illustration on that Memorial Day announcement? If you still have it, try to dance with your wife (or somebody else's) in the manner shown. A little awkward, eh?

Long an enjoyable after-picnicdinner pastime has been the skipping of flat rocks across lake~ and rivers. Edna Anderson, however, has accomplished the most remarkable feat of skipping a round (not flat) golf ball across the No.9 lake not only a single skip, but five of them - and to top it all off, the ball ended up safely on the other side!

If rain is called the Golfer's curse, hail should count as a whole string of expletives. However, consider the case of Mrs. DeForest Wead: On No. 7,she drove a long ball right down the middle; her approach was short, but her putt was stroked perfectly, The ball, being a trifle obstinate, rolled up to the hole, looked in, and stopped. Up to this point, the. weather had been exclusively rain, but like a thundering oath of Allah, hail now began to fall. An obliging hail stone caromed against the ball and toppled it in for a magnificent three. No, Mrs. DeForest Wead did not have a billiard cue with which to help the icy cue ball do its good deed.

Which all leads us to believe that our golf hazards don't really hold any terror for those of us who make faces right back at them. DeWead, for instance, was still 108 yards away from No. 10 hole in 6. He had skirmished with the gullies, and it looked like the battle was only half won. In short, however, De's ball was in that hole at the end of the seventh shot - an approach marvelous to behold.

Now, consider Doc Steward, who is wondering about his sudden

our pool has received a new cloak of silver. Some new furniture has been added to make the surroundings even more attractive and more comfortable for the spectators.

By Helen Anderson

Ah! A rhapsody in silver there's something romantic about it. Its air of good fellowship and ever-present laughter, its incessant jesting and constant splashing. Have you guessed it yet? Yes, you have it, (you ought to by now) - the swimming pool at Mount Hawley. Imagine this delightful scene: It's a hot summer day, and you have spent a hot morning in town. The sun is now penetrating your sensitive skin (if it isn't now, it will be) and warming your blood, while you inhale the fragrance of sun tan oil. During all this you are .enioyincr a free exhibition of swimming and diving by our members. Or, imagine that you are devouring a cooling ice cream bar while sitting in the soothing contents of our Baby Pool, and participating in a quiet game of bridge (accompanied, of course, by a few splashes). But, maybe you would rather sleep under our not-too-hot and nottoo-cool sun, and not part'ake in these energy-using activities. This imaginative slumber may be interrupted by dashes of cold water produced by the near-by swimmersjor otherwise). (Now back to earth again). But, these are trivial matters when one thinks of swimming as a sport. It brings into action and develops almost every muscle of the body. The pool is under the guardianship of the popular and efficient, Mr. Bob Cahail, and the chairman of the pool committee this year is Mr. Barthell. Dick Baxter is expected to assist Bob, but as yet the plans have not been completed. We neglected to mention that r:

The plans of the year have made but we shall disclose one day's schedule at this The Fourth of July is the first, Letter Day".

On this day we shall have relays, pajama races, a "cracker and whistle" event, and a: candle race. Tandem races will constitute the "form" (?) swimming of the afternoon. Bring your family and friends over to see some of our special (crazy) dives because we all will all show off together. (That is, be thinking up some good dives). There will be more information about the time schedule of the day on the swimming pool bulletin board soon. The afternoon has been planned for your entertainment. The only way for you to fully enjoy yourself is to join in the frivolity and to cooperate with the officials." The material reward for your participation is to be a secret until due time. The opening of the pool brought out (other than people) many new bathing suits and accompanying accessories. Weare glad so many of you turned out and we hope to see you regularly hereafter.

The Ladies are Charming, But Theoreticaliy at least, there are still some things sacred to those of us who wear :he family pants (theoretically). On this basis, the scrivener of HOOKS AND SLICES has been re quested to state that despite the charm of feminine companionship, Plavdav is one occasion on which the men "vant to be alone". It has been shown that mOS7 ladies are a bunch of good sports, so the Playdayers don't really anticipate a feminine invasion. However the committee thought that some of the ladies haven't known that Playday is strictly a STAG event, and has thus requested this announcement.

Why should Ed Terry, Ellis Rainey, Tad Wilkins, Art Herschel and the rest, travel all the way to Lake of the Woods when they can get their fish right here at home? By the way, Ed and Ellis just came back from the above menlioned resort, and we understand had a lot of "luck". We're still waiting for that invite to a s~ll dinner.
