Petfil Preserves Mate's No-Hitler $100,000 Bonus Bob* Hurls Five innings Of No-Hit Contest K>- James S a if jus NEW ORLEANS, April 3, («>)— Paul Peltlt, Pittsburgh's $100,000 bonus pitcher, has made an Impressive beginning In Ills professional baseball career. The California southpaw rookie was farmed to New Orleans of the Class AA Southern Association lor oue year's seasoning. Yesterday Pettlt went to the mound for the third time during exhibition play and inherited the .tough Job of preserving a no-hllter. Another New Orleans rookie, Bob Purkcy, had pitched the first four Innings against Nashville, another Southern Association team, without giving up a hit. And Purkey had singled In the only run. But Pettlt came through fn fine style and New Orleans won the no- hlt game. 1-0. Must Co Up In 1951 Paul hasn't opened up yet. General Manager Uoy Hamey of Pittsburgh said he will not be expected to be a regular turn pitcher for New Orleans. Hamey said Pcttit may not even be a starter during the earlier part of the season. As a bonus player, Pettit must go up to Pittsburgh next year. So far he looks good for a rookie gelling his first taste of pro baseball In a fast A A league. But Hamey said the Pittsburgh organization won't be stuck 11 Pcttit never becomes a good pitcher. The reason, Hamey said. Is Pettit's speed, fielding ability and bolting form. "This Icld has the makings of * great outfielder," Hamey added. "That's how Babe Ruth became famous, you know, not as a pitcher." In his five Innings yesterday, Paul walked four men anti struck out one. But the most Impressive thing about the youthful 20S-poundcr Is his poise under fire. : Paul's $100,000 bonus makes him probably the most publicized rookie of the year. But It hasn't affected his relationship with his teammates. They're all pulling for the likeable rookie.

(in— Attempts will be 'made in a PGA parley today to get the nation's headline golfers off the warpath and back contentedly on the tournament trull. The players' battle cry being carried to PGA officials by representative George Sclmeiter is "return tovrney golf to the tourney player." The top-drawer pros want to con- i duct'their own legislation under a' separate division within the PGA sturcture. They demand that such a.setup be written into the organization's constitution. Schneitcr, the PGA tournament bureau manager and playing pro from Utah,'Is firmly supported as spokesman in the uprising against legislative power of PGA delegates by such stars as Sam Sncad, Ben Hognn, Jimmy Dcmaret, Lloyd Mangrum and Gary Middlecoff. Under the new plan, these players make up a board of governors for execution ot tournament business. Including the negotiating and signing of agreements and control of the tournament bureau fund.

It was Hogue who brought the Whites back into contention after they slipped behind 22-0 In the early stages. He completed 14 of 30 passes for 209 yards and did a good job of directing the ground game. Another standout Saturday was Marvin stendel, a seasoned end, who was on the receiving end of a great number of Hogue's tosses, often making unbelievable catches., Though there was more scoring, the Porkers didn't appear as sharp as they did In their game nt Little Rock a week ago or in the first ane here two weeks ago. But it was no surprise, for they had scrimmaged four times during the week and were pretty well worn out.
