Clinton A Splash, But Not With Ducks

Compiled From Wire Services

Scaring a pond full of ducks, President Clinton enjoyed an afternoon of golf with family members on Friday after returning briefly to the White House to work on the program of his second inaugural.

Midway through 18 holes, the president splashed two balls into a small lake between the green and the rough, scattering a flotilla of ducks.

The ducks settled down and so did the president. After one more errant shot, he landed his ball on the green, drawing applause from clubhouse onlookers.
