(AP)--Beverly tffett *ot an tt ta. the first r^tnd of the Dallas Chritan Open (kit Tournament Thursday and vvas so enthu$i*stic about it that s|tt went swimming for a couple of hours. i She hadn't spent all her ejriergy on the golf course where strine of the lady pros took the count from searing heat on a day that found the temperatures soaring to 100. ·Beverly is only 10 years old, ii-the youngest pro in sports history and is the youngest ever t)t play on ** L** 68 Pro ~ fessional Golf Association tour. j She-or rather her father, Jafck Klass of Woodland Hills, Califc-^had to pay $50 for her to pjlay in fee tournament since she iai !not a member of the LPGA. She can't be until she's 18. ;But Beverly got part of that money back when she played in tfie pro-amateur, shot a 92 and her team managed to tie for fourm. She picked .up $31.25. J "\Pheel" 'she said.-J" 1 "She .likes it already; that'll Isuy a : Ibt '(if ; : bubble gum," grinned father Klass. } Beverly isn't likely to win any money .in the tournament proper since she is last:iii^- field of 54 dnd there are only 30 money places. ; But it's the experience she's after anyway. j Beverly will play the summer tour--a dozen tournaments--and then it'll be back to school at qalvert Street' in Woodland HiUs. She's a fifth-grader. : Beverly had . "played only dne 18-hole round before. That was.with the amateurs and she fired a 91. So when she shot 88 Thursday, it meant she had improved by three strokes already. The little girl (95 pounds) has been accustomed to playing on nine-hole courses and she actually had 82 for 18 holes one time. But there were nine holes each day, thus it couldn't be called an 18-hole round. When she was only eight, Beverly won the National Pee-Wee Tournament at Orlando, Fla. She won by 65 strokes. "She played baseball and I noticed she had unusual coordination for a child so young," said Klass, a building contractor in the Los Angeles suburb. "I thought she might do well in golf so I got her interested in that." He said her first interest in golf came when slie got to know Marlene Hagge, one of the stars of the women's tour, three years ago. He added that it was unusual that he would be encouraging her in golf since he and his wife and two other children were absolute nongolfers. "But I thought golf was a fine sport for her--it's a healthful game played by the best people --and she seemed to be talented tov,ard it," Klass said. Beverly will endorse clothes for a company in California. Now that she's a" pro she'll get a fee. She's also to appear in a television show her father, who's also in the motion picture business, is making. "That would make her a pro anyway," said Klass. .

Both have been lightly campaigned. Tumiga, a son of Tudor Minstrel out of the speed- bred Amiga, raced three times last year and included in his triumphs the Youthful Stakes at Aqueduct. This year he has been out three times with his last victory over older horses in the Carter Handicap last Saturday. Dr. Fager, a Florida-bred son of Rough 'n Tumble-Aspidistra, bowed only to Successor, the 1966 2-year-old champion, in five races as a 2-year-old. In his only start this year he whipped Damascus, beaten Kentucky Derby favorite, by one-half-length in the one-mile of the Gotham. Although both are eligible to take a crack at Derby winner Proud Clarion in the Preakness, there have been indications that their owners and trainers might by-pass the second leg 1 of the Triple Crown and shoot at the $100,000-added Jersey Derby at Garden Stake Park May 30. Both also have been nominated for the $125,000-added Belmont Stakes at Aqueduct June 3. Tumiga, sold to a syndicate which includes trainer .Lucien Laurin after suffering a hairline fracture in the right knee last year, will be ridden by Ben Feliciano. Dr. Fager, who'll be ridden by Braulio Baeza, is owned by W. L. McKnight's Tartan Stable and trained by Johnny Nerud. Aqueduct officials look for five other starters in the Withers, making it worth $57,800 with $37,570 going to the winner of the one mile test. The other probable starters are, Yorkville, Racing Room, Favorable Turn, Fort Drum and Sun Gala. AH carry 126 pounds, 13 more than Tumiga packed in beating Our Michael, a 4-year- old, by two lengths in the Carter. The $65,000 Illinois Derby over IVs miles at Sportsman Park and the IVs. miles on the turf of the §50,000-added Dixie Handicap at Pimlico are the two other richest races on Saturday's program. Garden State Park features the $25,000-added Camden Handicap at IVs miles, Hollywood Park the six furlongs of the $25,000-added Debonair Stakes for 3-year-old colts and geldings, Churchill Downs the $15,000-added Louisville Handicap at 1 1-16 miles, and Suffolk Downs the one mile and 70 yards of the $10,000 Governor's Handicap for 3 r year-olds. Ten 3-year-olds are expected to clash in the Illinois Derby with the winner likely to come from a group that includes Gentleman James, seventh in the Kentucky Derby; Romatan, Ne- hoc's Bullet, Royal Malabar and Son Jack. There are 20 probable starters Moreno Bro. Plasters Ml 07 -- 10 10 - « I 2 in the Dixie which means it'll be split into two divisions. War Censor, winner of the Pan- American Handicap and Hi- leah Turf Cup in Florida, is the highweight under 125 pounds. Flag, first in one division of the Dixie in 1965, is next in the weights with 120 pounds. Amberoid, second in each of his three starts this year including the Gulfstream Park Handicap and the Grey Lag at Aqueduct, and Stupendous, winner of three straight and four of his eigh 1967 outings, head the probable field of eight or nine in the Camden. Amberoid, hero of last year's Belmont Stakes, picks up 122 pounds, Stupendous 119. SPORTS CALENDAR 3-0, Ryder (L, 0-1) and Lujan. Ariz.
