Robert Tyre Jones Jr Number 1 host and drawing card had to be satisfied with a respectable but uninspired 73 Under the conditions it was an excellent ' performance better than most of the day's

$100 AND UP MELLON'S REAL MUD-HORSE Wood proving himself a great "mud-horse" started the day six strokes behind Picard but quickly began an uphill fight featured by some of the tournament's most spectacular scoring fireworks He trimmed four shots of Picard's lead at the turn caught his rival at the 14th and was going away In the drive down the stretch The blond New Jersey star runner-up in last year's tournament to Horton Smith of Chicago capitalized some startling recoveries putted with phenomenal skill and would have had a 67 but for a penalty stroke when he hit his second shot into the water on the 15th He was the only player all day to get home against the wind on the 525-yard second hole with his second wood shot He had six birdies and was over par on only two holes the third and ninth where he got into the woods Olin Dutra playing with Jones brilliantly putted on the rain-soaked greens The open champion had only 30 putts for his entire round but a six on the long second hole where he put his second into the rough and then over-played the green cost him a chance to tie Wood for the lead ATTENTION PEOPLE! i Large empty moving van going Wheeling W Va ten- near by

playing with Little had a good excuse for his first blow-up His heavy niblick was found to be missing from his hag While waiting for it to be rushed out to him from the shop he missed two attempted recovery shots on the third hole then dubbed a two foot putt and carded a disastrous six He approached poorly on the fourth and hit wide of the fifth green losing two more strokes to par before he regained control From the sixth through the 15th Picard was again a scoring machine two under par for a stretch of 10 holes thanks to a seven-foot putt for a birdie on the eighth and an easy birdie four on the 485-yard 15th Then he skidded again carding a five on the short 16th where he dropped his tee shot in the water and missing his approach chip to the 17th Henry seized his last chance to rally by dropping a 14-foot putt for a birdie three on the home hole giving him a 76 in stead of the expected 77 AUGUSTA Ga April 6 —&)— Scores of the leaders for the first three rounds of the Augusta
