Golfers Vying with Fishermen for Season's ^'Besf Story"
Either the fishing has let up or the luck of Pied
mont’s casters isn’t running as well as it was earlier in
the summer. But the golfers have another tale to tell.
It seems there have been some notable hole-in-ones put
on the books lately. The first one we heard about was
Carroll Gambill’s. His was certified by the Grandview
Golf Club near Winston-Salem. The other golfer, who
called to tell us about his hole-in-one, was Winston-
Salem mechanic E. L. Hurt. He was playing in Hamil
ton, Ohio on his lucky day.

The majority of our seatback commendations are
written for our ticket agents and flight crew members.
A number of other personnel also frequently receive
direct letters from our passengers expressing special
thanks for help they have provided. It is impossible for
us to keep track of all these commendations as there
is no central point through which they all pass. How
ever, our “unseen” reservation agen'ts have lately
found themselves being highly praised by some very
thoughtful passengers. Some of those who’ve been re
ported, in glowing terms, to their supervisors are
Toni McGuire, Virginia Denny, Virginia Dishman,
Donna Tripman, Debbie Appleyard and Barbara John

To say that golfers will go to any lengths (links?)
to play their game is in no way understating the case.

Being spoiled is having your cake and eating
It’s not such an unusual situation for airline
employees. We’re pretty much used to great
bargains when it comes to travelling. Many car

want to go have a chance to sign up. You need
only spend a little time on a waiting list for a
trip you really want to take to get to know
frustration first hand.
TW^A, That Wonderful Aii'line more formal
ly known as Trans World, has put an end to all
that. With their recent announcement of the
