ebon Doesn't Favorite'! ole in Tourney to* HAROLD V. RAlLtFF ' SAN ANfTONlO, Feb. 8.— (&)— The fliSdiO Texas open swung into its first round today with Byron Nelson somewhat reluctantly accepting the role of favorite. The tall Texan, who has won 21 tournaments in little more than a year, has been complaining that he's off his game and has been getting in several hours practice daily in an effort to correct it. But the folks around Breckenridge park course think its a psychological move because plenty still are willing to back Nelson against the field with cash. Nelson's scores have been unimpressive. Yesterday he posted a 72—one over par—as he played in the pro-amateur event and said he Was Mdly deficient in putting. The other golfers joked about it but Byron indicated it wasn't particularly funny to him. Nelson might take the lead in money winning for the year to date although missing three of five tournaments if he should capture first prize of $1,600 here. Nelson and two other Texans furnish the big three in earnings. Ben Hogan has grabbed off $6,200 in "bonds to be No. 1 for the year. Nelson is second with $4,666. He won the Los Angeles and San Francisco opens before leaving the tour to handle some private business and have a physical check-up. In third place is Jimmie Demaret with $4,000. Nelson and Demaret. actually re- Side in Texas—Nelson at Denton and Demaret at Houston—but Hogan now is at Hershey, Pn. There will be 130 in the field that plays 18 holes today and 18 tomorrow. Then it will be cut to the 60 low scorers and ties for the final 36 holes Sunday. { In yesterday's pro amateur, the best rounds were turned in by pro Ellsworth Vines of Chicago and amateur Ken Rogers of Oklahoma City, each posting a six-under 65. But in the best ball competition three combinations tied for first. Art Doering of Denver and Rogers, Lloyd Mangrum of Los Angeles and Mario Gonzales of Sao JPaulo, Brazil, and Vic Ghezzi of Knoxvllle, Term., and John Kinney Of Luling, Texas, were the pro-amateur teams deadlocking at 62. While the contenders for Texas open title will be out to 60 and ties Sunday, the rest of the field will have some incentive to nlav the fiiw' 36 holes anyway. Tournament Director Sam Goldfarb said the pro registering the lowest score on Sunday's first 18 holes will receive $100, and the same was being offered for the second 18. Of course, the Texas open field also will be eligible for these award". but the winner of the open might not have the low rounds on Sunday.

Vaster Phone 2410 Increase in Fishermen* Fish is Seen AUSTIN, Tex., Feb. 8—(#)—The outlook is for both more fish and more fishermen for the spring angling season. Howard Dodgen, executive secretary of the game, fish and oyster commission noted a, 20 per cent increase in artificial lure licenses issued since, Aug. 31, and expected a smilar increase as interest in fishing picks up with warmer weather. Both Dodgen and Marion Toole, director of inland fisheries, anticipated good fishing this spring, along with the usual ifs. These mainly have to do with the weather—the fishing should be better if there is not too much high water from spring rains and if the weather is good enough for fishing otherwise. Toole said that a year's trial of the relaxation of size limits, and the abolition of closed season on game fish, definitely had not hurt fishing, and probably would improve it. He had reports from Lake Brownwood, Lake Nasworthy, Eagle Mountain lake and some others irJGicat- ing that fishing, especially for white perch, has been on the upgrade since the law was relaxed. Dodgen said fishing on the coast, especially in the bay regions around Rockport and Port Aransas. should be better this year because passes opened by last August's hurricane between bays and the Gulf were still open. He did not think they would close until the prevailing wind shifts south and shuts them with sand. Chuck Paltison Goes To Wichita Falls as Head Football Mentor WICHITA PALLS, Feb. 8 — Charles R.

Fan and the Missus will pay tonight the highest price per pound for fistic "beef" in Madison Square Garden's 21-year history. Beau "The Jumping" Jack and Johnny "The Elevator" Greco, a couple of overgrown lightweights, will tangle in a ten-rounder at 9 p.m .(CST) and( with nothing at stake except their ability to keep all their features assembled properly, they'll draw a gate larger than most heavyweight championships staged in the garden. Promoter Mike Jacobs' ticket men, who can call the shots on a gate as accurately as Babe Ruth pointing out where Charley Root's next pilch is going, tell you that Mike's cash registers will jingle with more than *150.000 for the match, this would be not only the juciest jackpot ever hit in the Garden by two little men, but also the third richest in Garden history, shaded in the past only by the $201,613 heavyweights Jack Dc- laney and Jim Maloney drew in 1927 and the $189,700 Joe Louis attracted for clef ending his heavyweight crown against Buddy Baer four years ago. The betting boys have made the Jumping Jack a 5 to 13 favorite for this brawl.

Mansfield (D-Texas) is turning 85.

Opening the home defense of their Northern division cage title, the Pampa Harvesters meet the Sorger Bulldogs here tonight at 8 o'clock in the Junior high gymnasium. There will tje one game only. There will be only 1 game tonight byt Coach Otis Coffey has promised the fans that this one game will be worth the admission pri:e. Borger, coachod by Tricky Ward, tool: a 43-42 decision from the Harvesters at Borger last week in a 3t'nferertce game. Therefore, Pampa must win tonight's game and the Tuesday batt.le with Amarillo in order to have a chance for the title. Also, Borger must beat Amarillo at Borger next week. In the event these things happened, Borger, Amarillo and Pampa would each lave two wins and two losses each and a playoff would be necessary to see which team would meet the Southern division champion for the — district I-AA title. Pampa, after winning over Amarillo for Northern division honors ast year, beat Plainview two >traight for the district crown. They also beat Chlldress twice to ad- •nnce to the state tournament, where they were eliminated by 3reenville in the first round. Both teams will have their regu- ar-starter.s on the flocr for tonight's game.

Sports Round-Up By HUGH FULLER-TON, JR. NEW YORK, Feb. 8—WP)—The ther day when Larry MacPhail ,ook noisy exception to Commissioner Happy Chandler's remarks about sasebail admission prices and relations with pro football, and when a number of other baseball men a;reed with Larry, It raised a few laostions we'd like to have answered. Q. WITHOUT A. C':andler already is suffering bemuse he had to give up his "root- jig- privileges." Now, is a seven-year contract at $50,000 enough compen- :-tion for being deprived of opinions, too?--Isn't there something in iiie constitution that says a guy can -.und off when he feels like it?— ,V::d if the baseball commissioner, u'i'nitUng thnt it':; only his' personal <..' .'ni:''! 1 .', mn't s;ay that he likes or -,;.•,),:es something about baseball, v'-.o can?—One argument is that Judo Landis astablished the com- missioncr's prerogatives: to "police' 1 bi'seball, prevent gambling, do away with covering-up and other practices that deprive a player of a fair i .shake and to crack down on any-' thing "detrimental to baseball."— Chandler is the first to say he's no r.nndis and doesn't intend to be. So ;.s there anything in his contract t.Liat says he has to follow the judge's UioiRteps and :an't establish a few uvrrosatives of his own?
