His tnree day total is 204, three strokes better than second place Sam Snead, who came in with a third round 69. Demarefs great round included eight birdies and only one over- par hole.

In third place alter 54 holes on the 6,762-yard course was Jim Ferrier, the big Australian who flubbed the Masters on the last nine holes.

Senator Sluggers Pound Out 16-4 Win Over Bucks In Last Road Exhibition By WAYNE THOMPSON Assistant Sports Editor Greenville. AprU 15 Blasting a trio of hurlers for 21 hits, the Jackson Senators finished their road ex hibition schedule in a blaze of glory Saturday afternoon by downing the class-C Greenville Bucks 16 to 4 in Sportsman Pak. Although the Bucks grabbed a 2-0 lead in the opening frame, the Senator bats came to life in the second stanza to knot the count, and from that point the Bucks were never in the game. Hitting stars for Jackson were rookie Julio Palazzalnl with five hits in five trips, including a double and a. base on balls; Banks McDowell, with four hits in six trips including two doubles, an inside-the-park homer, and five runs batted in; and shortstop Ed Zabek with three hits in six trips including a pair of triples and four runs chased in. After the Bucks took a 2-0 lead in the first frame on a walk, error, double and long fly, the Senators came back in their part of the second to knot the count- Joe Andrews and Banks McDowell led with singles, and both came around as Ed Zabek lived on an error and Roger McCardell hit a long fly to center. The Senators took a 5-2 lead in the third as JuUo Palazzini got his second hit of the game, a single to left, and Mel Nunes followed by doubUng to center. Earl Bass was safe on a fielder's choice as Nunes went out at third, but here Mr. McDowell blasted a drive over the centerfielder's head and circled the bases for an inside-thc-park homer. George (Ruby) Yorke retired after three frames, having given up two hits, two runs, striking out two and walking a trio. He was replaced by Lynn Southworth, and Ed Irons Slated For Mound Duty For Solons; First Locql Appearance Begins At 3 P.M. Greenville, Apr. 14 The 1950 edition of the Jackson Senators make their initial appearance at League Park in Mississippi's Capital City Sunday afternoon in, the final exhibition of the spring training activities. Furnishing the opposition, as Solon fans get their first look at the 1950 club as it now stands, will be the Greenville Bucks of the Class-C Cotton States League whom the Senators played Saturday afternoon. Action in Sunday's tilt is slated to get underway at 3 p.m. and one of the larcest exhibition audiences of the spring is expected to be on hand. Nominated by Manager Willis Hudlln, of the solons, to hurl for Jackson Sunday is Ed Irons, the converted catcher who has been showing-up especially well in ex hibitions to date. A converted catcher and with Jackson lor the entire 1949 season. Irons has one of the best arms In all baseball and seems to have made the switch to the rub ber from behind the plate with finesse. Always a great favorite wun jacKson lans :or nis suck work and clowning, Irons is all business on the mound and is anxious to turn in a spectacular periormance Sunday. Not counting Saturday's tilt, the Solons have yet to taste defeat in the road exhibitions since leav ing the Wigwam of Future Boston Braves at Myrtle Beach and boast a record of four wins and a tie in five games played to date. Record The Senators beat Waycross 8 to 1; battled to a 15-15 tie with Jessup: beat Dublin 13 to 1: smothered the Opelika Owls 18 to 2: and downed the Valley Rebels of Lanett 6-2. A return game with the owls was cancelled due to cold weather. In aU games played to date by me senators. Manager Hudlln s boys, have shown power at the plate, skill in the field and the hurlers have turned in creditable Jobs (with one horrible exception) on the mount. All the games wera with Class- D competition with the exception of the Saturday clash with the Bucks, who are Class-C, and GreenvUle is expected to make a real game out of it Sunday after noon. In an effort to start activity at ieague .Fara with a victory, Man ager Hudlin said Saturday prior 10 me nigni game, mat he would lead with this line - up: (Some changes, however, may be made prior to the time action opens Sunday afternoon but this is not likely.) Don Hazleton, the speed demon who stole 84 bases in 98 games last year, wiU be on first and lead-off; Rookie JuUo Palazzin, who has been hitting the baU at approximately a .370 clip in exhibitions, will be on the hot-corner; Joe Andrews, the bonus boy who has been hitting around .450. wUl be In left. Old dependable Tommy Davis, one of the all-time favorites with local fans, wiU be in his familiar clean-un spot and rlghtfleld Mel Nunes, the scrappy keystoner whose power at the plate has been the talk of all the nlvpr hat a fifth: batting sixth and in center- field is Banks McDoweU. stiU one of the classiest fielders and most dangerous hitters on the team; smooin-neiaing Ed zabek will be stationed at short while Dick Willis, a truly good receiver and good handler of pitchers, wUl be catching. Irons, who can still hit the baU even if he has switched to pitching, rounds - out the start- ing line-up. Whether or not Irons wiU work the fuU nine innings is not yet known, but if the weather is hot; and sunny, there is a good chance ; the Sojons quickly got him flv runs as 10 men went to the plate. Big hits of the frame were a double by McDowell and triple by Zabek, while Southworth, Nunes and McCardell had singles. Southworth, in his trio of frames, was touched for two hits and no runs. He walked none and fanned none. BiU Sorrells came on for the final three stanzas. Zabeck's second triple of the game, following an error, made it 11-3 in the eighth, but GreenviUe came back to get one run on a pair of hits, one a triple by Mike Cudema. The Senators finished up their scoring in the ninth, getting five runs on four hits including doubles by McDowell and singles by Palazzini and Hazleton.

Bucks Dangerous Greenville, managed by Joe Rullo who piloted the Natchez Indians for the past two seasons, also has a creditable team and should make it Interesting for the Senators for full nine frames Sunday afternoon. , Although the Bucks have won only one game In four exhibitions to date, all of the tilts have been extremely close and their one victory was earned against a Class-A club, Muskegon, Michigan, of the Central League. Muskegon lost the first battle 7 to 4, but gained partial revenge by winning a return game 6 to 4. In two battles with the Clarksdale Planters, the Bucks lost 1-0 and 4-2 and in the latter game, the Planters got but one hit, that a triple with the bases loaded. Expecting more help to come from the Yanks, the Bucks have shown in games to date exceptional pitching, classy fielding, but a slight weakness at the plate. In keystoner-manager Rullo and shortstop Bobby Adams, Greenville has the best keystone combination in the Cotton States. On the Buck roster and sure to see action in his old home town is Joe Kennedy, the Forest HIU boy who started the 1948 season with the Senators. Kennedy came to Greenville for a try-out, and is still in there pitching with the opening game just around the corner. Kennedy will probably alternate with Luclan Folkman at third base, while Charlie Weber is slated to open at first. In the outfield, Rullo will probably play Ray Johnston, Al Ellis and Don O'Dcll. . Now holding the Job as first string catcher is Jack Maroney. but likely to see action is Mike Cu-demo, sent to Greenville by the Yanks and Earl Kilpatrlck, a rookie and native of Belzoni. Presently slated to start on the hill for Greenville is Sam Atkisson, Arkansas boy, sent here by the Yanks. A big and husky boy, Atkisson is a righthander who can really burn the ball across the plate.
