(AP) — Drench- tog rains have turned the 24th Masters golf tournament, starting Thursday, Into a prospective battle of muscle men and one of the most eminent of these, Sam Snead, says it could be his year. "The way might do it, time winner I'm playing, I just ' drawled the three- from West Virginia today. "I don't know when I've bit the ball better. "I'll tell you one thing — as heavy as this course is, no short knocker is going to win it." One of the game's strongest players, Arnold Palmer, has been established rite. Most as the advance favo of his competition is expected to come from such pow erful hitters as Snead, Cary Mid dlecoff. ex-footballer Mike Sou chak and perhaps even the husky U.S. Amateur champion, Jackie Nicklaus. Nicklaus, a blond, 200-pounc package of power from Columbus Ohio, trudged around the Augusta National Course in a driving rain Monday in 69, three under par. I was the best score of those rash enough to buck the elements. No amateur ever has won the Masters. Snead played a full 18 holes and was even par although experimenting with his long irons. Ben Hogan gave up , after eight holes and said, "I don't have a chance," Palmer, the year's leading money placed on the year, led the most successful season in many years as they tied with Rapid City for BHC honors. Judson flipped in an average of 19.9 points per game and did more than his share of the rebounding for the Custer club. The only returning regular from the 1959 state "A" championship Watertown team was Doug Peterson. Another of the shorter men on the team (5-11) he helped turn what was billed as a "rebuilding year" at Watertown Into a year in which the Arrows finished second in both the ESD and the state tournament. An unknown as far as East River fans are concerned, but a menace! to Black Hills teams all year was Ron Schroeder, Hot Springs. At 6-3, Schroeder terrorized western opponents with his shooting ability; which gained him a 17.5 scoring; average for the season. Rounding out the top ten is the! Eastern South Dakota scoring leader, Mike Anderson of Madison. Playing for a team that would up in a tie for the cellar spot in the conference. Anderson gave Bulldog ftns something to holler about as he netted an average of 17.5 points per game.

Biggest man in the group is Aberdeen's T o in Malchow (6-6) while Dennis Gandy, Custer, isn't far behind at 6-5. Mike Isenberg, Pierre, and Joe Sweere, Sioux Falls Cathedral, are the shortest of the squad at 6-1.

Only three teams have expressed interest thus far in operating the league. It takes four teams to qualify a league in the State Baseball Association and Mitchell must field three of its own in order to be eligible. The size of each town is taken into consideration and the bigger the city the more teams it must field.

(AP) Hard-hitting Bob Skinner of the Pittsburgh Pirates, whose batting average parachuted 41 points last year, figures he'll be among the National League's top hitters again this season. "I'll be right up there this year, that's for sure," said the tail, lanky outfielder Monday. "The main tiling is that now I feel real good." Skinner's confidence la largely based on a sparkling performance this spring in Grapefruit League competition. He's batting .304 with 14 hits, including one home run jlebrew and Lemon started the Senators on their way to their seventh victory in 20 games by driving home two runs in the first and three doubles. After turning in a .321 year in 1958, Skinner plummetted to .280 the following season. He suffered a back injury in Milwaukee early in the season when he rammed into a fence. Skinner's not the only one hoping he has a better season in 1960. Manager Danny Murtaugh has already said that the Pirates pennant chances this season depend a lot on Skinner's big bat. inning with sacrifice flies. The A's tied it in the second when Bob Cerv homered — his fourth of the spring—with a man on. Then, in the seventh. Lennic Green singled, advanced on a ground out and came around on Throneberry's clutch hit. Cincinnati manager Fred Hutchinson and Charlie Grimm, field boss of the Chicago Cubs, took advantage of the open date to get their starting lineups in shape for the National League's opening program a week from today. Hutch said Billy Martin, acquired along with pitcher Cal McLish in the swap that sent Johnny Temple to Cleveland, definitely will open at second base for the Reds. Grimm named rookies Sammy Drake and Lou Johnson to his probable starting lineup at third base and right field, respectively. Other clubs continued paring their rosters to get down to the required limit.
