VP>— 'he largest field on record for this Hra-excluslve event will begin play omorrow in the 14th Masters tour- ament at the Augusta National 3olf Club. Out of 110 who received ivitations because of their special ualilicatlons, 68 have registered as ompetitors and a few more are lie today. . The Masters' field Is limited, as he name indicates, to outstanding olfers. Including national champ- ons, former winners, those who fin- shed near the top in this and other or events, and a few newcomers elected because or their promise. Trie man who comes nearest to illing nil the qualifications— and ititurnlly the favorite 'his year—is tamuel Jackson Snead of White lulphur Springs. W, Va.. and he's avored in spite of an ailing back which forced him to pass up the Azalea Open at Wilmington, N. C., ast week. Snead won last year with a 12- lole total of 282. He was the lead- ng money winner on ' the tournament circuit in 1949 and he's out front again this season. In addition he won the national P.G.A. tournament last year and tied for second in the national open. That qualifies him as a master in three ways. the clear later, but numerous major league moundsmen are finding the path through the citrus circuit strewn with thorns. Among the blg-tiine f lingers meeting with assorted reverses are Rae Scarborough, Washington Senators; Hal Newhouser, Detroit Tigers; Bob Feller, Cleveland-Indians; Vic Raschl, New York Yankees; Ellis Kinder, Boston Red Sox, and Dave Koslo," New York Giants. Last season, Koslo was the most effective pitcher in the National League, sporting an earned run average of 2.50. Southpaw Dave went into yesterday's game against Cleveland ,-ith a spring record of allowing nine runs, 19 hits and 12 bases on balls in 17 innings. Koslo pitched eight and two- thirds innings, during which he walked six, made a wild pitch, gave seven runs and seven hits. Cleveland won, 7-6. handing .the Giants their fifth straight defeat. Newhouser Sidelined Newhouser, famed ace of the Tigers, has a mysterious ailment In his pitching arm which has baffled everyone. All he knows is that it hurts when he pitches and, having tossed only a couple of Innings. Hal Is at least temporarily sidelined. Feller, no longer the great fire- bailer of yore, gave up 12 runs and H hits over a six inning stint ;ainst the Chicago Cubs last Sunday. Big Leaguers Greet ' Uniforms with Cheers, Jeers Scarborough has yet to reveal any of his 1949 effectiveness. Only last Monday, working eight innings against the Springfield. Mass., International League club. Rae was found for 17 hits. This spring, he has been reached for 20 runs and 36 hits in 17 innings. Raschi went seven Innings . against the Cincinnati, Reds last I\fonday and again failed to resemble the hurler he was last year. Vic allowed five runs, nine hits and four walks. . Kinder, last Sunday, hurled five innings against Detroit, giving up many runs—four In the fifth inning. By Jack Hand , St. Petersburg, Fla,, April 5. (iPi— Jeers drowned out the cheers in a sample poll of major league opinion on the "new look" In baseball uniforms, Introduced at Hollywood. In case you missed the pictures, the new suits, worn in the Pacific Coast League, are abbreviated. Hollywood players wear a pair of basketball style pants and light short- sleeve rayon shirt on hot days and humid nights. Yogi Berra, squat Yankee catcher, looks with scorn on the new tailoring. "Naw." said Yogi, "I wouldn't look nice in them." Bobby Brown, trim young medical school grad who just reported to the Yanks for spring training, res- eived opinion. 'First I'd like to see one model- led by Berra," said Brown. Casey Stengel, Yank manager and former coast leaguer, has a definite opinion. "You can say for me," said Casey, "That Mr. Collins (Hollywood president) should wear one greeting guests at his Brown Derby. And Fred Haney (manager) had better take a few pounds off that stomach, or forget it." No Slide Protection Rowdy Dick Bartcll, one of the old guard, now a Detroit coach, didn't think much of the new suit. "It's not practical," said Bartell. "how are you going to slide? You'd be surprised how much protection the regular uniform gives your legs." Red Rolfe, Tiger manager, agreed with Bartell. "We could stand something a little lighter," said Rolfe, "but I'm not one for those Innovations." Joe Gargiola, St. Louis Cardinal catcher, was opposed. We'd have to shave the hair oft my legs everyday," said Joe. Detroit's strikout ace, Virgil Trucks lined up on tl.e other side. "I think they'd be all right in Washington and St. Louis," said Trucks. Yankee, Phil Rizzuto also was booster. > "Those old suits are too cumbersome," said Phil, "I had this same idea last winter. I talked about it on a television show, I'm in favor." Mule and Camel Steaks On Israeli's Main Diet TEL AVIV, Israel—f/P)—The Israeli diet Is skimpy and monotonously features frozen fish as the main entree—hut even that's better n horse, mule or camel steaks. Zvi Lehman, an official of the inspection department of the minls- Iry'of supply and rationing, cays that's what Israelis often pet when they buy "meat" In the black market. Israeli law permits meat to be sold in rationed and strictly limited quantities three days weekly. But for many Israelis, even though a black marketeer is hard to find in this country, they still prefer trying to get some of the "meat" he offers for sale. Deep Rooted Tradition Goes with Mill Villages • CHAPEL HILL, N. C. (AP) — A deep-rooted tradition of the South —the cotton mill village—Is disintegrating. Southern cotton mills, which for years have .rented scores of village homes, are, selling the dwellings to workers. The break-up of this mill-workei relationship, often termed r ."feudalistic" by its many critics, is described in a book recently published by the University of North Carolina Press. Harriet L. Herring of the university is the author. Pride In home ownership and individuality are quickly reflected, the author says. She notes: "Some of the people paint their ho\ises soon after purchasing them erven If this is i not~particularly necesary, using a different color from the neighbors and often putting a trimming in bright contrasting colors."
