There will be no wartime suspension of football at the University of Georgia or Georgia Tech unless "further emergency should develop" - or unless diminishing gate receipts indicate public disapproval.

The state Board of Regents adopted yesterday an administration-sponsored resolution continuing athletics, thus ending the controversy created last week when L.W. Robert Jr., a member of the board, urged suspension of football to avoid interference with the war effort.

The Augusta Museum of History will show The Story of Golf, an 118-minute public television documentary narrated by Jim McKay, continuously in the museum's theater during the month of April.

The documentary highlights milestone events in golf, including outstanding performances by top players and changes in rules and course architecture.

The museum is located at 560 Reynolds St. and is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and 1-5 p.m. Sundays. Admission is free Sundays.

For more information, call 722-8454.

It's best to draw cold water from the tap for cooking. Hot water is more likely to contain minute metal particles picked up from the household plumbing and hot-water tank. Allow cold water to run for a few seconds, then use it for cooking and drinking.
