Additional Sports executive committee a meeting with the Golf Peace By Monday? Gugusta, Ga. (AP) — The central figures in what once was called a revolt within the PGA are predicting peace by Monday. George Schneiter, who in three days has tumbled from PGA tournament bureau manager to a spectator here for the Masters tournament, said "all the trouble between our group of touring golf stars and the PGA can and will be ironed out by Monday night—maybe sooner, "The desires of my group of governors and of the PGA are very close together. All of us want to stay in the PGA and the PGA wants us." The PGA has called "eleven-golfer board of governors" Monday to discuss how, when and where golfers of the big money tournament circuits can obtain more authority in managing themselves. Among the governors are Sam Snead. Ben Hogan, Gary Middlecoff and Jimmy Demaret. The "why should they have more authority" question apparently is settled. The PGA is willing. It will offer a plan Monday which seems lo please many golfers with minor reservations. The' plan, as outlined by PGA Secretary Horton Smith, is this. Form two new committees — a revised tournamen. committee and n ways and means group. Four of the tournament group's seven members would be touring stars. All of the ways and means men would be travelling professionals, therefore immediately available for complaints. One of the basic causes of friction in the PGA is the different problems of its two types of members — the touring stars and the stay-at-home cluB pros. At present the stay-at-homes have more voice in managing PGA affairs, since, for one reason, they outnumber the travelers more than 100 to one. Club pros want exclusive sale of autographed golf clubs while the stars for whom the clubs are named, want them sold as many places as possible. Another contention point is the spread of tournament prize money. Stars want big sums for the Jop three or four finishers in tournamenls while the club pros, who play ony a few Western Kansas News meets a year, want the money spread thinner. prize Arkansas City Jucos Defeat Hutchinson Arkansas City — Although losing No. l singles and doubles tennis matches to Hutchinson aces, Arkansas City won all other matches to score a 4. to 2 victory in the junior college tennis dual here Wednesday afternoon.
