Mr. Howard Glover

Dear Mr. Glover:

In further reference to your letter of May 7 and my
reply of May 9, 1969 concerning an incident between
you and the golf starter at Piedmont Golf Course on
May 6, I wish to advise you that the following infor-
mation has been submitted by the Assistant General
Manager of Parks.

The golf starter states that he advised you at least
three, and probably four, times not to disturb the
balls in the ball rack and explained to you that it was
impossible to keep them straight if the general public
confused the arrangement, etc. According to the
starter, you did not remove just one ball, but seven
or eight, and then both you and the starter became
confused on which ball was first. Further, the golf
starter states that after you had ignored his request
not to bother the ball rack three or four times that
he became very angry and did, in fact, use the language
stated in your complaint.

While i can certainly in no wey defend the foul language
used by the starter in your presence, I must defend

his position in his having advised you that the general
public could not have access to the ball rack in that
it would result in confusion over whose ball was first,

Thank you again for your patronage, I am

Jack C. Delius
General Manager of
JCD: jw Parks and Recreation

ec: Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr., Mayor —
Mr. Pierce Whitley, Assistant General Manager of Parks
Mr, Pete Cole, Golf Pro, Piedmont Park Golf Course
