CHAPTER 653

FORMERLY HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

NO. 44

ANNOUNCING THE FORTHCOMING LEGISLATIVE INVITATION GOLF TOURNAMENT AND BANQUET AND EXTENDING AN INVITATION TO ATTEND SAME TO VICE-PRESIDENT SPIRO T. AGNEW.

WHEREAS, it has been decided that the Third Annual Delaware Legislative Invitation Golf Tournament and Banquet will be held on June 9, 1972, at Maple Dale Country Club in Dover; and

WHEREAS, it is the desire of the committee (Senator Melvin A. Slawik and Representative Arthur W. Dobberstein, Co-Chairmen; Lt. Governor Eugene D. Bookhammer; Representatives George Jarvis, Hudson E. Gruwell and R. Glen Mears, Sr.) to make this a super day and evening; and

WHEREAS, the Vice-President of the United States, noted links-lover Spiro T. Agnew, a resident of our neighboring State of Maryland, was unable to accept an invitation to display his well-publicized golfing talents (?)-to a Delaware audience because of an overseas assignment from his boss, the Honorable Richard M. Nixon; and

WHEREAS, the 126th General Assembly of the State of Delaware would be delighted to have the Vice-President take aim on the all-time high score (156) of the Legislative Invitation, established by Representative Kenneth W. Boulden, last year, or the previous high total (134) scored by Senator David H. Elliott in 1970; and

WHEREAS, the Maple Dale Country Club members on the committee (Representatives Dobberstein and Gruwell) assure the Vice-President that the numerous beautiful trees on this course are most conductive to keeping one cool while searching for errant shots that stray into the rough.

BE IT RESOLVED by the members of the House of Representatives of the 126th General Assembly, the Senate concurring therein, that a cordial invitation be extended to Vice-President Agnew to participate in the June 9 (rain date: June 12) event

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a copy of this resolution be forwarded immediately to Vice-President Agnew with additional copies to U.S. Senators J. Caleb Boggs and William V. Roth, Jr., Congressman Pierre S. duPont IV, Governor Russell W. Peterson and Republican National Committee Co-Chairman, Thomas B. Evans, Jr., golfer extraordinaire.

Approved April 8, 1972.
