Fort started with four strikes in a row. He fell victim to a pocket hit 8- pin tap in the fifth frame—a bowler's nightmare—but converted and went on a striking spree up to the last frame. According to reliable sources, Fort's 279-game tied the highest game ever bowled in the Arctic Lanes. His high game earned him a century patch, scoring 100 pins over his average. His average was 158 at the time. of 15.1 knots or 18.12 miles. The peak gust for January was recorded in 1958 from the West at a speed of 73 knots or 87.6 miles.

You can go to the Canary Islands for the sun and the beaches, or to Copenhagen for sightsee- ing and shopping. by Fran Preston Lisbon The Tour Office is offering a very special charter flight to Lisbon, Por- tugal. It will depart late the evening of Jan. 29 and return late Feb. 5. To make the flight possible, though, we must have a sufficient number'of people interested in going. If you wish to go, call the Tour Office immediately to find out about the extra-low price for the round-trip airfare-, and to sign up for the trip. We will also be setting up hotel accommodations if a sufficient number of people sign up for the trip. To travel to Portugal, it is recom- mended that all people travel with a passport. It is possible for military personnel to travel with just a military ID and leave papers, but the leave pa- pers must contain certain statements at- testing to their validity in both French and Portuguese. If you do not yet have a passport, it is a simple matter to ob- tain one here in Iceland. Call the passport office at 7102 for the exact procedure that must be followed to get one. Keep in mind, though, that it does take two or three weeks to have one issued, so if you wish to have one be- fore going to Lisbon, you should contact the passport office as soon as possible.
