UPt--Four years after they took their last lick- Ing from the one and only Bobby Jones, the American professional golf clan today looks forward with mixed emotions to the eminent Georgian's return to open competition the end of this month at Augusta; still somewhat apprehensive but nevertheless optimistic that the faster pace and newer stars of the last few years will combine to strike a telling blow for the pro standards. If the truth must be told, now, however, it Is that the professionals entertain more hope than convictions that they can take Jones' measure on what they consider "his own backyard," the Augusta national course designed according to the former world champion's own ideas and for which he already holds the low scoring record, 65.

There are at least a half dozen others who might bob up to give Jones the main battle, including slender Denny Shute, the British open champion whcr combined with Al Esplnosa. yesterday .'to 'ake tie measure of Runyan 'ana ;jorton Smith in the four ball championship final, but Paul is just now the fair haired boy of the clan. The only .notable absentee in the 72 hole battle for $5,000 in prize money at Augusta, Is -Gene Sarazen the present national PGA champion and the only player aside from Jones who has captured both the British and American open tournaments in the same year. Gene has been one of Bob's biggest rivals in open competition but unless he changes his mind he will be on Latin-American, golfing tour by airplane at the time of the Augusta event. Everyone's Wondering. 'Naturally we are all wondering what Jones will do," says Walter Hagen, whose all-time tournament record rivals that of the Georgian 'His recent 65 at Augusta would indicate he is playing as well as ever but the question is whether he can return to real competition, after a (Turn to Market Fare) DETSY ROSS WIN SHUTTLES LOOP'S FIRST STANDINGS ienkel's Drops Series for Second Place Ranking in League Bowling.
