(AP) - A somber, restrained air sur* rounds the opening of the 32nd Masters Golf Tournament Thursday, with Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer, as usual, ranking favorites. Neither of the giants o.f the game was especially pleased with his game, however, while defending champion Gay Brewer was downright dismayed. "I ju.3t can't putt," said Brewer, who hasn't won since taking the 19C7 title. "The rest of my gain; is good enough, I suppose, but I just can't sink a putt. I can't seem fo get my mind on it." Palmnr and Nicklaus had their chronic complaints. Palmor cMd he couldn't putt. Nicklaus said he couldn'tdrive. Despite their troubles, they've won seven of the last 10 Masters, and easily rank as the men to beat in the relatively small field of 76 of the world's best. But even their m.-igzc presence on the lushly green Augusta National Course Tuesday— both were late arrivals—failed to generate the excitement usually connected with this, the first of the world's four major tournaments. The crowd.? for the practice rounds were small and subdued. Palmer, amazingly, walked through a crowd unnoticed when he first reached the course. Both Palmer and Nicklaus admittedly are pointing for this Masters. Each feels he needs it. Nicklaus, the 210-pound Ohio strongboy who has won all the world's major titles, practically owned the Masters crown until he fell apart last year and failed to mike the cut. He had won three of the four previous Masters and set the scoring record. Palmar, the only four timo winner, feels he is overdue. Among the other favorites are Billy Casper, two-time U.S. Open champion and winner of last week's rain - delayed Greensboro Open; flashy Uoug Sanders, and England's Tony Jacklin, a 23-year-old who won the Jacksonville Open. .

To a baseball player, it's the World Series. To a football player, it's a Bowl Game. And to a golfer, it's the Masters at the Augusta National Golf Club. Following are excerpts from loiters by some of golf's greatest stars written to Tournament Chairman Clifford Roberts and Club President Bobby Jones. What they said in the past is equally 'pertinent on the eve of the 1968 Masters: Byron Nelson, winner in 1942 (Jan. 1, 1946): "It seems the Masters always produces something unusual . . .

Ben Hogan. two-time winner (Jan. 12, 1954); "Today I received my invitation to the 1954 Masters Tournament . . . It brings back memories of the time I received my first invitation back in 1938. Prior to that year I remember hoping and praying that my game and iccord would qualify me for this much-prized invitation. This same thought is going through the minds of many young golfers today and I know exactly how (hey feel.

Clary Player, winner in 1961 (April 18. 1961): "As you know, I made a special trip from Johannesburg (South Africa) five years ago to re- snond to my first invitation to play in the Masters ... In my travels I have visited practically every country in the world where the game of golf is played. I can assure you that the Masters Tournament everywhere serves as an inspiration to young golfer ..." Jack Nicklaus, three-time winner (April 20. 1965): "...
