We think it's something like miniature golf, only requires about 15 acres to be played on -- Ellis had a postcard that was sent to Mr. Cockrell from the G. G. Association in Richmond, asking if one of the graduates wanted a job in Franklin for the summer that might pay him enough to go to college on -- So Ellis answered, mostly for curiosity - and they wrote & asked him to come to Richmond Sat. and see the G. Golf set-up in one of the Richmond parks -- He isn't going, but was curious about it -- thinks he'd kind of like an easy job like running a Gopher Golf course! I'm still wondering about Pediatrics -- Guess I'll find out tomorrow --Hope everything went off alright today -- and tomorrow, too -- I love you -- Woman
