City officials yesterday were unsuccessful in their bid to nullify
a court ruling which temporarily restrains the city from enforcing
its four-day old billboard ordinance.
Livingston County Circuit Court Judge Paul Mahinske issued the
restraning order Monday at the request of the Central Advertising
Company, and set a hearing on the issue for Sept. 13.
Mahinske, as a visiting Circuit Court judge here last January,

The effect of Monday's ruling was to prevent the city from re-

Four hundred boys and girls, from nine to
eighteen, overran the Par Three golf course yes-

The program of professional sporting advice
provided by University coaches seemed similar S'
to those of other years, except that there was one
major addition. Girls.
As the result of a suit brought against the city
by PROBE, a local women's group, girls were
allowed into all of the events offered by the pro-

cluded football, wrestling, track, gymnastics; base-
ball, basketball, and golf.

attendance to 1,400, "the largest turnout ever,"
according to Don Lund, assistant athletic director
who is in charge of the program. But along with
the increased attendance, the addition of girls has
meant a few unprecedented complications for the
