NEW YORK, ( --d The New
York Knickerbockers and Detroit
Pistons announced a five-player
deal yesterday, which sent Mel
Hutchins to New York in exchange
for Harry'Gallatin and Nat
"Sweetwya ter " Clifton.,
In addition, the Knicks pick up
the rights to Detroit's firsts1957
draft choice, while the Pistons get
the rights to Dick Atha, currently
on the Knicks' reserve list.
Clifton is a colorful performer
who played with the Harlem
Globetrotters before switching to
the Knickerbockers in 1950, In 71
games this season, Clifton scored
762 points. He was one of the cir-
cuit's top rebounders.
Gallatin ranks as the "iron
man" of the National Basketball
Association, In nine seasons with
New York he took part in 666 con-
secutive games. He was the Knicks'
leading scorer this season with a
15-point average and was the best'
rebounder with 725.
Atha is a former Indiana State
star. He played one season with
the Knicks and then was farmed
out to a minor league.

AUGUSTA, Ga. (/P)-The biggest
of all Masters golf tournaments
gets under way today with a rec-
ord field of 102 amateurs and pro-
fessionals and without one player
who can be singled out as the fa-
vorite.
Began in '34
The Masters started out in 1934
as a rather informal golf party
for Bob Jones and some of his
friends. Since then the tourna-

ment has grown in size and sta-
ture until it has become one of
the most important of the season.
And the 6,980-yd. par 36-36-72
Augusta National Course has ma-
tured so that the greatest skill and
endurance are required to win on
it.
This year's entry list passed a
milestone when more than 100
golfers, the pick of the amateur

ROCHESTER, N. Y. ()-The
Rochester Royals of the National
Basketball Assn. yesterday became
the Cincinnati Royals as Les and
Jack Harrison announced they
would take the club west in the
fall.
"We hate to leave Rochester,"
the Harrisons said, "but the NBA
trend is toward bigger cites."
The Royals thus become the sec-
ond NBA club to announce a
change of home base for 1957-58.

The Ft. Wayne Pistons will switch
to Detroit.
Economics dictated the move,
said the Harrisons, co-owners of
the Rochester franchise.

(This is the last in a series or four
articles analyzing the Major League
baseball teams before the start of the
1957 season.)
By PAUL BORMAN
Lou Boudreau, Charlie Dresser
and Paul Richards are three Am-
erican League managers whc
aren't going around boasting about
how their team will win the pen-
nant.
The three, managers of Kan-
sas City, Washington and Balti-
more .respectively, are all hoping
for better finishes, but don't plan
on winning the flag.
Boudreau Gambles
Kansas City unwillingly occu-
pied the cellar position in the Ju-
nior Circuit last year. Manage]
Lou Boudreau gambled over the
winter in two big trades with De-
troit and New York.
He gave up Jim Finigan, Eddie
Robinson, Bob Shantz and Art
Ditmar to name a few and re-
ceived "Rip" Coleman, Mickey
McDermott, Tom Morgan Bob
Cerv and Irv Noren.
On paper the Athletics aren't
anything to get excited about be-
cause they have a roster of ques-
tion marks.

mares.
Catcher Lou Berberet is solid
behind the plate and at bat, while
Ed Yost supplies more than ade-
quate third base strength consid-.
ering the lack of good third base-
men.
First base is solid with Pete Run-
nels who hit .310 and knocked in
76 runs, but the big worry is in
the pitching staff. Chuck Dressen
can't claim one top-notch hurler,
but if some of his throwers come
through, look out.
As general manager and field
manager Paul Richards did quite a
commendable job with Baltimore.
Pitchers Come Through
Because pitchers like George Zu-
verink, Ray Moore, Don Ferrarese
and Hector Brown came through,
the Orioles finished fifth without
any mentionable hitting support.
This year's roster finds them
still lacking at the plate.

The consensus choice is CaryE
Middlecoff, current U.S. Openc
champion and Masters winner int
1955. But more than any other thek
golfers seem to fear Ben Hogan,r
the grim-faced little Texan. S
Idle since last summer, Hogan
has put in his usual intensive
practice session in Florida and
then here and has some excep-
tionally fine practice rounds. He
has won the Masters twice, was
runnerup twice and set the tour-
nament record of 274 in 1953.
Sam Snead and Jimmy Demar-!
et, the only three-time Masters
winners, and Australia's Peter
Thomson, British Open champion
for the past three years, must be
reckoned with as well as Jack
Burke, last year's winner.I
Other leading performers in-
clude Jay Hebert and Arnold Pal-
mer, former PGA champion Doug
Ford, and Dow Finsterwald, re-
garded as No. 1 among the young-
er pros.

QUIMBY, WISC. (March 3).
Police today arrested the foul
felon who heisted the cash reg-
ister at Jones' Gas Station.
When arrested, the base serv-
ant of the devil kept mutter-
ing, "Drat the shirt, drat the
shirt.'.
Let's look at the events
leading up to this story. After
the holdup, the police quizzed
Victim Jones. Jones couldn't
identify the yegg. "The wan-
ton jackdaw who cabbaged my
cash wore a mask," said Jones.
"The only distinguishing fea-
ture about him was his shirt.
A beauty! The collar was ab-
solutely free of wrinkles. Oh,
he was a neat one!"
Meanwhile, the scoundrel,
knowing that his wrinkle-free
and enviably-neat collar was a
dead giveaway, tried desper-

ately to slip some wrinkles into
it. He stamped on it with hob-
nail boots. He slugged away
at it with a club. But not a
wrinkle! So later, as he skulked
down Main Street, his shirt
was noticed, admiringly, by a
detective and he was arrested
lickety-split. Good work,
copper!
By now you will have
guessed that the miscreant
wore a Van Heusen Century
Shirt. But of course! It's the
only shirt in the world with the
soft collar that won't wrinkle
ever. It never needs starch,
so it's always comfortable. The
Van Heusen Century also lasts
up to twice as long as ordinary
shirts, yet costs no more. $4.00.
