Today's Sport Parade By Htnrjr Mol^mort PHfLADEJjPlffA, June 8. (UP)— Eqtiip|x?d with n matching set of H notebooks nnd a pencil with a backspln eraser, Jimmy Thomson made his debut ns i\ newspaper man here In the first round of Hie National Open golf championship. When Thomson, one of the game's greatest players, unfortunately failed to qualify for the open, the Philadelphia Inquirer gave him a long term contract of three clays as a reporter, and assigned him to cover the tournament. Th'-mson leaped to liis task with the enthusiasm of a mouse attacking u cat, and until he became hopelessly entangled In n hanging clause In bis story lal« in the afternoon, shamed veteran sports writer. 1 ; by Ills vigor and nose for news. lie wns-the first, reporter in the press bendrjiinrlcrs, showing lip shortly before breakfast time.

Bor 30 minutes lie baiiged out long descriptive sentences, crisp participle chips, hooked a few adverb approaches, oml fliiLs-lied with a beautiful series of personal noun putts, lie kept tils head on (lie difficult capital letters. His only real sign of weakness was an inability lo keep his left nun straight when reaching for tlie margin release and backspace!'. lint Thomson couldn't hold to his fine practice form when the tournament started an't he began writing in earnest, He scored a par on his first paragraph but ran Into trouble on his second nnd found himself burled In a patch of typewriter rough that looked like this: "ETAOIN SHKDLU &&& III!! ??VV?

Thomson wns very popular with his fellow reporters until he violated one of the unwritten codes of the golf writing business. With [fie noon clay sun nt the hottest, Thomson set out to follow some of the mulches. When word reached the press lent thnt Jimmy was not only following a match, but was seen taking notes as he trudged uphill on a long, par live hole, 11 wns suggested thai he be barred from the tent. Only his Ignorance of the'''code which frowns on reporters [allowing a match lu the sun, prevented his complete ostracism. To show that he was sorry, and eager to get back in the good graces of the other reporters, Thomson wore his hat at n rakish angle for the rest of the day. Tonight Jimmy, speaking from the corner of his mouth, said ho planned to attend one or two good f^vc alarm fires,, look In on the morgue, call the While House lo see if nny news wn.s breaking, and, finally, bile n dog at Broad find Market streets.
