ATLANTA. Ga., April 1. (U.I'.) —Jimmy Wilburn. of Indianapolis, was Ihe ixj.sse.ssor of a new track record for the 20-mile feature race at Ijikewood Speedway here which he won yesterday be- for 34.3G2 fans in the rccord- samshing Unit of 14.28.11, which broke the previous mark of 14.44.3 set in July, 1938. by the late Hilly Winn.

Stoncliam immediately dismissed Maglle, who was brought up from Jersey City last year, and then went down the list of players to tetermlne whether anyone else had >een negotiating wilh the lucrative Latins. Bolh Hausmann and Roy Zimmerman, reserve first baseman, admitted they had been in contact, with Pasqucl and Sloneham fired them with Ihe curt statement that "You no longer ar c members of lhc Giants." "We don'L want any player.s on this club," Stoneham said, "who -arc negotiating with an outlaw league when you already liave signed with Ihe Giants." Then the Giants' pres- ident look one last look around tli c room to see if any other players wanted to confess Mexican meandering and left the room, adding that "I wish you luck and I hope you get your money." Hoti.smann and Zimmerman then told reporters that they had agreed to terms with Pasqucl and had not definitely made up their minds lo quit until Sloneham's purge. "We're going to catch an airplane lo Mexico City today," Hausmann said, "since that's the way the Giants want it." Ifausmann. who was receiving approximately $8,01)0 from the Giants, said that both he and Zimmerman, a $6.000 pliiyer, had agreed to Pas- qncl's offer to double their present salaries, plus a $5,000 bonus for signing and $1,000 for expenses. Tlic triple loss put a crimp in OtL's pla.ns, nllhough it was the Giants' manager who learned of Ihe Mexican dealings and suggested lhc purge. Maglic probably won't be missed but the departure of Hausmann and Zimmerman takes a good chunx irom the left side of the Giants- infield. Hausman, the Giants' regular second baseman last year when he hit .279. was considered a good get to start the season at his old spot again while Zimmerman, a 32- homc run hilter with Newark last season, was going to be carried "by the Giants as a utility player and pinch hitter. ton Smith, Craig Wood and Dick Mel/., skipped Ihe last couple of lour- namcnts to warm up gradually for the Masters'. Meanwhile, Sammy Sncad won last week at Greensboro and Hamilton captured the Charlotte O]wn yesterday. Hamilton, In winning the third major tournanien' of his big league BOinng cnrccr. came from sixth place to grab the Charlotte tllle by ilring a sr.vcn-under-par 85 to finish the 72 holes in 273 strokes, 15 under par. And starling Thursday, Ihe 31- year-old Chicago pro will get a chance to match strokes in the Masters' with Nelson, lhc man he upset to become famous. For the name of Hamilton brings to mind only one outstanding victory, when he nosed Nelson out one-up In Ihe finals of the 1944 P.G.A. at Spokane, Wash. Stroking the ball straight as a string, Hamilton fired Ihe same kind of golf yesterday that gave him his only big title. Pete Cooper of Gainesville, Fla., and Jim Ferrler, another Chicagoan, teed off for yesterday's final round tied for the lead. Cooper slumped lo a 70 for 27(i and a second-place lie while Fcrrici- skidded to a 75 and 281 strokes. Tied with Cooper at 270 stroke;, was Jimmy Demaret of Houston, Tex., who fired a 07 on his final round, and Sammy Snead of Hot Springs, Vii., with a 09. inuniUon went out in 33 lo lie Lawson Little for. Ihe lead al the end of G3 holes but he shook oir all pursuers on the last nine, finishing with a 32 and four birdies on the last five holes. Lloyd Mangrum of IMS Angeles came in with a 70 for 277 strokes and fifth place while Little wound up with 70 strokes and sixth place al 278. Al Smith of Winston-Salem, N.
