Guldahl Breaks

To Take Lead'
St. Louis Pro Has 68 AsI
Nelson Cracks; Kocsis Is
Second Low Amateur
AUGUSTA, Ga., April 3.-(/P)-Ap-
proaching and putting with a magic
touch, Ralph Guldahl, tall, round-
shouldered St. Louis professional,
swept out in front of the field in
the Augusta National Golf Tourna-
ment with a total of 209 after 54
holes in the battle for first-place
money of $1,500 today.
The 25-year-old Missourian was
seven strokes under regulation fig-
ures for the distance. He picked up
four of them with birdies on the last
six- holes of his third round 66, to
overhaul Byron Nelson of Reading,
Pa., the leader for two days.
While Nelson cracked under the
par-shattering pace to take a 75 and
drop into a tie for third place at 213,
Bobby Jones, playing here for the
fourth time since he abdicated his
golfing throne in 1930, remained far
down the list despite a nicely-played
73, his best score in the annual tussle
with the professionals.
Shooting a 71, one under regula-
tion figures, Big Ed Dudley of Phil-
adelphia, the home course profes-
sional, also pulled ahead of Nelson
to advance to second place with a
total of 212. Nelson drcpped back
into a deadlock with Lighthorse
Harry Cooper of Chicago at 213.
It was Guldahl, who had but one
three-putt green today, who missed
a four-footer on the last hole that
would have given him a tie with
Johnny Goodman of Omaha, Neb,,
for the National Open crown at Chi-
cago in 1933.
Chuck Kocsis, former Michigan
star, and leading amateur in last
,year's National Open, was two strokes
behind Charley Yates of Atlanta,
who led the six amateurs with a total
of 223.

Trainers Declare
Tape Is Essential
To Winning Teams
By ROY HEATH
'What is the most important thing
tow anathletic team? Experts, real
and alleged, never tire of airing pro-
found theories on the question, few
ever hit on the right answer.
5ce say material, others hold out
for coaches, a minority will tell you
equipment is the answer while a
necessary few just listen. There is
one element however that they all
cverlook in their enthusiasm-Tape.
We say after careful investigation
and observation that humble adhe-
sive is the most essential thing to an
athletic unit and we'll stick to it.
Use Plenty Of It
Acccrding to Ray Roberts. head-
man of the Wolverine training room,
Michigan athletes annually wrap

sticky panacea around their various
limbs. Athletes will use tape for
anything that ails them and some
things that don't. When a few feet
I of tape won't put a man back in com-
petition it is a safe bet that he is in
a bad way.
Roberts and his assistant, Steve
Bronson, use tape for sprains, bruises,
tears both in muscles and pants, and
headaches. Tape is also used to some
extent to hang calendars and the
like in the training room.
Gridders Lead,
Football players lead in the amount
cf tape consumed. One breakable in-
dividual a few years ago was the bane
of existence to Roberts and Bronson.
It took them two hours, working in
shifts, to prepare the fragile one for
a game and when they were done he
must have made a mummy look like
an acrobat. Both of his shoulders,
ankles, knees and feet plus a brace
of ribs were neatly encased in a mir-
acle of tape work. He was good too.
Track men run the footballers a
close second. They use tape for weak
ankles, to keep their shoes on, for
shaky arches and shin-splints. Just
what shin-splints are, nobody seems
to know.

at a serious disadvantage in past
Olympic matches due to this fact.
There is little "bulling" or going
behind, the contestants tend to be
very cautious, and most of them find
the leg tackle the most effective way
of ending their matches in a hurry.
Most matches, although scheduled
for 15 minutes, do end fast due to
the fact that should a man relax
for a minute and allow his shoulders
to touch the mat, he is gone.
That's why Wally and Johnny are
shaking their heads today. "It's

it might just as well be called ping-

the kind of wrestling we know."
