Masters tickets now on sale
Tickets are now on sale for the 1966 Masters Tournament, April 7-10, at the Augusta National Golf Club.
Golf fans should not make a trip to the famed event without purchasing in advance their admission requirements. Cliff Roberts, Masters Tournament chairman, said, "Last year we were greatly embarrassed by having to turn away large numbers who were apparently unaware that tickets were no longer available."
Applications for series badges or daily tickets should be mailed to the Masters Tournament. Price of series badges is $15. This includes practice rounds and playoff in case of a tie. Daily admission tickets are $2 for practice rounds, $5 for the first two days of the tournament and $7.50 for the last two days.
Columbia Countian Jack E. Eubank, lumberman and pulpwood producer, of Appling, is one of two members appointed to the Southeastern Forest Fire Compact Commission. The other member is Hugh Dixon, lumber manufacturer, of Vidalia. The appointments were made by Gov. Carl Sanders.
Eubank was elected to serve on the executive council to plan for cooperative programs of training and other activities for the coming year.
