Sixteen seniors also start Jday today joining 16 junior-senior flight sutvivofs of a division which began match play yesterday.

YOU HEAR SO MUCH about country club golf being social monkey business that it's refreshing to run into contrary proof. Take this Trans-Mississippi golf show at Phoenix Country Club. It's no picnic. There's only one social event—a dinner tonight—and if the schedule is any indication, most of the guys will be too tired to show up. Sure—they have to eat. But they may be inclined to do it in bed where they also can rest. The Trans-Miss qualified with two 18-hole rounds. Then when the guys get down to combat, there's a foot-killing walk that calls for double rounds every day except today. You'd think the Marines made up the timetable. The more a man wins the greater the fatigue. After today there are double 18-hole rounds for winners right up to the championships Saturday. Walking Rounds Bring Fatigue Those are walking rounds—no carts allowed up the major flights, only in the senior brackets where concessions are made to clogged arteries and bowed arches. The big walk is one of the reasons the bets go with young golfers with sturdy legs in this Trans-Miss which ranks among the four top prestige golf tournaments in the nation. Old hearts might be willing. But you can't fool old legs—especially not in the 100- degree weather that's oozing vitality of many of the visiting hides. Nope—this is no social bash. Trans-Miss entrants come to play—but only golf and for a title purpose. The fervor is so avid and the schedule so rigorous that many of those failing to make the championship flight just flat quit rather than drop down to the 32- man President's flight. The tourney title is all prestige. Anything less is like finishing llth in the American League. Grant, Andrews Entertain Golfers G-STRINGS (don't cover much) . . .

"When I pitched, I evolved a one-second stop with the hands while an unobtrusive continuous body motion was going on by shifting weight preparatory to throwing to first.

"I'm sure he has a longer continuous service with one club than anybody else managing today. "I CONSIDER Alston a good sound manager. Not spectacular no intention of making a change." Thus, in one terse statement, President Walt&r O'Malley of the Los Angeles Dodgers, put an end to the twin rumor that Alston would be fired before the season's end and replaced by his coach, Leo Durocher. "Naturally, like everybody else connected with the team, I'm disappointed in our poor showing," O'Malley said, "But you certainly can't blame that, on the manager. but he gets the job done.
