(AP)— ".imer Riddle, veteran National ,eague pitcher, is back in the minor cagucs again today because he ealizes he hasn't the stuff to help he Pittsburgh Pirates. Manager Billy Meyer yesterday •eluctantly released Riddle outright to Indianapolis of the American Association, the team on which he 34-year-old right-hander played shortly after beginning his career and where he finished the 1949 season. There's always the chance that Middle will be back in the big leagues. Only a few years ago he went on the voluntary retired list 3ec!iuse of nrm trouble, then came back with Pittsburgh to become one of the National League's most talked of pitehers. That was in 1948 when the veteran right-hander, obtained from the nciimati Reds for the waiver price of $10,000, won seven of his first eight games in a Pirate uniform. He was plagued by an injury later in the season and wound up with a 12 10 record. Riddle first went to Indianapolis in (he Inst part of the 1937 season, a year after he broke into baseball. In. 1939 he became the property.of Cincinnati Reds ,a team for 'which he won 19 and lost 4 in 1941 for a creat .826 record. In 1943 he was a workhorse for the Reds, winning 21 and losing II. F.

By Sterling Slappty ATLANTA, April 13. {IP)— In this one-time capital city.of golf where the game seems to come naturally, the touring professionals today began the MO.OOO North Fulton Open. The usual cast of stars opened the tournament at the 6.762-yard North Pulton Park course. In addition to deciding who the winner will be, the stars will find out If Atlanta still Is blast about professional golf. Many times the touring group has come to Atlanta but seldom has It attracted enough fans to turn profit for/sponsors. Why? Nobody seems to know definitely. Some oldtlme golfers and solf fans hereabouts think that native Bobby Jones ruined Atlanta as a paying proposition for golf 2fl years ago. ' •' Oldtlmers ask, "Why pay money this week lo go watch Sam Snead. Jimmy Demaret, Cory Middlecoff. Johnny Palmer, and the rest? Not too mpny years aeo.we went out and watched Bobbv Jones free." Too Many Winners Besides Bobby Jones, Atlanta has watched other citizens who count their golf titles by the barrel! — Charlie Yates of the British amateur and many other crowns; Louise Suggs, the present National and Western Open champion; Dorothy Kirby, the queen of runners up who usually loses to fellow Georgian Miss Suggs; Alexa Stirling, three times Woman's National Amateur chamnion and a hall of fame girl; also Perry Adair, who was better than Bobby wlien they were boys and Watts Gunn who with Jones formed the only National Amateur finalist slate to come from the same home club—Atlanta's East Lake. Middlecoff, Mangrum, Snead am company, are just a bunch of Johnny come iatelles hard to get cited about after you've., watchec grand slam Bobby—the natives say Picking a winner of the North Fulton Open involves mostly Sam Snead and Jimmy Demaret. Dcmarct likely wouldn't rank tha high except . for what happenec Sunday in .Augusta, Ga. Demarc won his third masters title with 28 strokes. That's plenty good enough to make him a co-favorite.

' Alex Korda's agents are talking to Dick Haymes about-co-starring with Moira Shearer of "Red Shoes" fame In a technicolor musical. PHILADELPHIA, April 13. Connie Mack began today a weeklong whirl oJ parties and speeches honoring his golden anniversary season—but the ageless baseball veteran wasn't feeling very festive. . Frankly, the 87-year-old owner- manager of the Philadelphia Athletics was downright worried. A month ago, Mack's Athletics were being boomed as a first rate Hag threat in th. Amelcan LeagJK and Connie Joyously looked forward to "that one more pennant" that has been eluding him for 19 years. Many things have happened in the past month. Mostly, what has happened has been to his pitchers, and practically all has been bad. His . two leading right banders, Joe Colemari and Dick Fowler, developed arm touble and may be out of action indefinitely. Southpaws Brissie and Alex Kellner have been battered In spring training games by minor league opposition. And he hasn't ?, reliable relief pitcher on .his roster. : Party Planned A month ago, that foursome — Coleman, Fowler, Brissie and Kellner—was rated as perhaps the best four-man pitching crew in baseball. Now, few expect the A's to squeeze Into the first division. The Junior Chamber of Commerce planned a party for Mack today. He'll appear on radio and television programs during the week and on 'April 20. he'll be honored at a $5fl-a-plate dinner during which Baseball Commissioner A. B. (Happy) Chandler and American League President Will Harrldge will speak. Connie hasn't given up hop seeing a pennant waving from Sfl Park at the end of this season. He still regards his Infield—Ferris Fain, Pete Suder, Eddie Joost and Bob Dtlllnger- -as the best in the league, considers his catching as good as that of any other American League'club and rates his outfield as strong and speedy, although not made up of power hitters. Sam Chapman, Elmer Valp, Paul Lenner, Wally Moses, rookie Ben Oulntinl and comeback-hoper Barney, McCosfcy make the nucleus of a first rate outfield. But the club collapsed, even on paper, on the pitching mound, once considered the A's greatest asset. Andre Previn, MGM's musical wonder, turned down another studio bid to thump the piano.
