HIGH ROLLERS IN DETROIT

Serious bowling and a rollicking good time bring top executives and professional men to Detroit by private plane, motorcycle-escorted limousine and special train from as far off as England for the 42nd annual Inter-Club tournament between the Detroit, Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Buffalo athletic clubs

Stogie-Chewing Walter Ward, Cleveland, tournament's only "pro," won all-events, called match "toughest I've ever bowled."

Suite of executives includes (from left): Chuck Larsen, Detroit, president, Cunningham Drug; John Iversen, Pittsburgh, Mesta Machine; Alex Squire, England, auto parts; Cliff Kirtland, Buffalo, banker; Tim Meulenberg, Detroit, Automotive Rubber.

GUNSMOKE OVER THE DESERT

With a roar of gunfire at Las Vegas, the 10th Annual Mid Winter Trapshooting Tournament exploded across the dry cactus-studded Nevada desert, drowning out the hauntingly familiar rattle of the ivories. From all over the nation an unprecedented 600 shooters crowded onto the magnificent Sahara Gun Club's 14-trap range, shattered a record 400,000 clay targets during a hectic, fun-filled week-long bid for bulging cash purses and a roomful of glittering silverware
