Charley Berry, acquired from the While Sox. ATLANTA, Ga. (UP)—The nation's grcnt goiters arc wondering whether Robert T. Jones will tats the "Jones spell" over the field of golfers who compete in the Masters' Tournnmpnl at Augusta. The great Atlanta golfer will return to tournament competition In the Auguslix uflnir after havms "retired" In 1030 with 12 major golfing tlltcs Incited nivny. The rivals of Jones are more hopeful than ever that this will be their chance to defeat the champion of champions when he returns to the golfing wars after the long lay-ofT. But Jones has demonstrated recently that lie still know.-, how to whack the tall, and the Masters' Tournament will be played In his own backyard. For Jones designed Augusta National Course, over which the 12-holc medal play ol tlie Ifltmiament will be held. lie has pul In franc practice sessions on it. and this month he set a new unoclclnl course record of 05. White the golfers who hope to defeat Jones acknowledge Hint Ills game' appears to be a.s good a? ever, they base their hoi>c on .seeing him go clown to defeat on the grounds that Bob nuiy not the old fight spirit, or that his "tournnmnu nerves 1 ' are as good • There is a long list of youthful golfers who have risen to stardom since Jones was manager of the golf links. They may not, have the fear of Jones thai, the veterans who played against him may have, many of the golfers reason. Tlorton Smith, the last golfer to detent .Jones In the Savannah Open of February. IS3D, believes that Jones Is not invincible and that the champion will not hold the psychological grip over the other players this season that he for- nerly did. Paul Eunyanr young ^prolesslon- il player of White Plans. N. Y., Ls being rated as a possible threat to slop Bobby. Tlunyan never has played ngalnst Jone-s. Charley being regarded ns Cochrane's successor. Yonng Eddie Madjeski Is in reserve. The Mackian infield src-ms to be well set. although for a while it si-Dined Connie would be without a first-sucker. Mack had a lol. of trouble with Jimmy Fosx In contract matters, and with Frank Higglns, too. Higgins led the league's third basemen last year in every department of baseball except wild throws. It Ls around those two that, the A's leader will bull a. "Jimmy FCKX is a, nice boy." IHack told me, "but he was siwiled by a lot of newspaper men telling him that he could gel moro money. "We paid Al Simmons three times what he was worth when we were winning and getting crowds. But we can't pay, players more than we arc making! "When we signed Simmons for $35,000 a year, we had prospects of drawing more thim a half- million people at the gate. U Isn't like that now. In 1M3 we didn't have 300,000. "Last year we still would have been in debt If all the players had worked !or nothing. Thus year baseball may cotnc tach. But how do I know? I can't break into the mint and get the money. I don't want to go to jail at this slage of the game." Whereupon Connie Mack suddenly • discovered far across the diamond a rookie InfleWcr who wasn't coming up right with the bail lor a throw. Proceedings were halted while the fault was corrected.
