(AP>—The National Open golf championship ooks like a Tom, Dick, and H»rry ournament after the first round with Let Kennedy, one of th* lesser- known pros, pacing the field with * two-under par 68. Kennedy, 31 year old Pawtuckct, R. I., shooter, competing In his first open, posted his top ranking score after touring Medlnah'i treacherous No. 3 course whose par Is 3835—71. Only five players broke par yesterday in a field of 162 starters In the 49th open tourney. Seven others matched par. Kennedy, winner of the New Ei.g- land P. o. A. crown for three years in a row, authored eight one-put greens and chipped In from 20 feet on another to fashion 35-34. Today lie has a slim one strike lead. Bunched at 70 were a pair of "unknowns" in big time golf, Chuck Parlow of Greensboro. N .C.. and Al Brosch of Garden City, N. Y., plus, two big-namers. Chick Harbcrt and Herman Barron. Two lesser-lights also were in the standard 71 bracket—Pete Cooper of Ponte Verrtc Beach. Fla. ,and Bus Peclle of Kansas City, Kas. With them were such illustrious ellows as 53-year-old Bobby Cruicn- shank. Lew Worsham, the 1947 winner Johnny Palmer, Claude Harmon, the 1918 masters' titlist, and Ralph Guldahl, former Medinah pro whose feat of taking the open in 1937 and 1938 Is still hot-stove talk Five were deadlocked at 72, Including amateurs Skee Rlegel of Tulsa, Okla., and Jimmy McHale, the insurance salesman from Overbro 'k Pa., whose 65 at St. Louis in 1947 still stands as the national open's single round record. Sam Snead dug out of the trees for a 7B. Bobby Locke. Lloyd Man- gruni and Byron Nelson needed 14 veteran Gene Sarazen and Gary MIddlecoff settled for 75's. Jimmy Demaret staggered in with an tit, Ills worst round in years. Mexican Academy Outlawed There'll be no football game between Dr. Enrique Mathey's Mexican academy «nd any Arkansas high school next fall unless some school wants to fall from the good graces of the National Federation of Kith School Athletic Associations. That's the word h*nd*d down by Jonnke Burnett, secretary of the Arkansas Athletic Association, yesterday. According to Johnie, the NFHSAA, which ts the exalted ruler of all state athletic associations, has Issued an ultimatum that It will not sanction an International contest between any one of its member schools and the Santa Maria Academy of Santa Maria la Rondendo, Mexico, which recently contacted Blythevllle Hi»h School oHleial* about a "goodwill" gridiron get together. It seems that Dr. Mathey, who represented himself as the commissioner of athletics of the academy, was a bit hoiftah about th* whole thing. Games with one or two American schools might have be*n al right but according to Mr. Burnett* the Mexican (ridden had planned a king size barnstorming tour which would have carried them Into several states, as far north as Illinois and Indiana, and the national federation kind of got the /idea that there might be a commercial angle somewhere. Too Grand a Price North Little Rock was the first Arkansas school to be approach* by the Mexican academy. Burnett said. And since then a number o other teams in the state have been sent Invitations. The price asked b. Senor Mathey for playing such a game varied with some schools being asked to guarantee as much as $2,000, plus expenses, A reliable source has reported to us that BlytheviUe school ofll cials offered a guarantee of $1000 to bring the Mexican team here and the last account was that Dr. Mathey was holding out for the inclusion of board and room. • Sounds like Jorge Fasquel In reverse.
