APRIL 14. 1954 BLYTHEVEU! (ARK.) ' COURTKR NEWS PAGE* HINT Easter Holiday AtAugustaToday Ike's 10-Day Visit Centers Around Golf Course By MARVIN L. ARROWSMITH AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — President Eisenhower, starting an Easter holiday, tunes up his golf today for a round later in the week with the sensational North Carolina amateur who came close to winning the Masters Tournament. The President, accompanied by Mrs. Eisenhower, arrived here by plane from Washington last night for about a 10-day stay at "Mamie's Cabin," named for the First Lady, on the edge of the Augusta National Golf Club. Eisenhower found most of the talk at the club still centering on 31-year-old Billy Joe Patton of Morganton, N. C.,. whose play in the Masters won him probably more attention than the winner. Patton finished the regular 72- hole tournament at the Augusta National with a 290, just a stroke more than Sam Snead and Ben Hogan. Snead won in a playoff. Enjoyed Home Run Bobby Jones, president of the Augusta National, met Eisenhower at the .airport and told newsmen neither Snead nor Hogan had been able to a;ay over for a game with the President. But Jones said Patton had been invited back to the club for the Easter Weekend. He probably will team up with Eisenhower Friday. The President left the nation's capital after watching the Washington Senators defeat the world champion New York Yankees in a 10-inning baseball thriller at Griffith Stadium. "How did you like the ball game?" a reporter called to the President as he came down the ramp from his private plane, the (Columbine, at Augusta's Bush Airport. "Oh, wonderful," he replied with a wide grin, "particularly that home run." He was talking about the four- bagger slammed in the 10th inning by the Senators' Mickey Vernon. It gave Washington the game 5-3. WILSON NEWS By Mrs. B. F.
