CHICAGO-Thar's gold in them
thar fairways and greens-$66,-
The annual golf stampede to
Tam O'Shanter is about to begin.
NEVER HAS tournament traf-
fic been so snarled. Big-hearted,
publicity-minded George S. May,
Tam president and one-time door-
to-door Bible salesman, is giving
anybody who can hit a golf ball
a chance to prospect for the gold
on his course.
dnHis 1949 extravaganza, be-
ginning Friday and continuing
10 days, is really seven golf
tournaments rolled into one.
No qualifying is needed. If
you've got a $20 entry fee, come
out and get into the swim.

A FIELD of about 500 hopefuls
will start in this richest, longest
and daffiest links variety show.
Half of them take aim Friday
under the headings of the All-
American Men's Pro Tourney,
the AllAmerican Men's Ama-
teur, and the All - American
Women's Open. Each is a 72-
hole medal affair. The other
half plays its first round Satur-
day.The, fields are then sliced
from mob size for the final three
All this is no sooner completed
than May's world championships
unfold before the hot-dog eating,
bleacher-sitting customers. Four
hand-picked fields will compete
for titles of May's world through
72 holes-men pros, men ama-
teurs, women pros and women
TOP PRIZE for the All-Ameri-
can Men's Pro Champion is $3,333
and for the World's Champion
$10,000. Should one of them get
hot and break the course record
of 63 set last year by Lloyd Man-
grum, he would get another $1,000.
The winning pro in the All-
American Women's field will
pocket $1,200, and the World's
Champion will get $1,100 and a
The chase among headline golf-
ers for money winning honors of
the year can be completely upset
by the Tam roulette.

PHILADELPHIA -The Phila-
delphia Athletics ended a three-
game losing streak and a 27-inn-

4,970 fans - the smallest night

BOSTON-Dom DiMaggio sin-!
gled as the first batter in the
ninth and then raced home from
third base with the winning run
on a fielder's choice as the Boston
Red Sox defeated the St. Louis
Browns last night 4-3. DiMaggio's
run was scored with the bases'
loaded and none out when Vern
Stephens ducked a Ned Garver
pitch, the ball struck his bat and
rolled down the first base line.
Dodgers 5, Pirates 2
PITTSBURGH-Gil Hodges hit
a home run and double to drive in
three runs last night as the red-

NEW YORK - (A')-Red Rolfe,
the freshman manager of the De-
troit Tigers, feels that his streak-
ing ball club has a better than
fair chance of climbing into the
thick of the American League
"If we continue to get the kind
of pitching we've had the past
three days (three shutouts), we
should make it interesting for any
of them," he volunteered.
"WE'VE WON SIX out of eight
so far on this trip. Now all I want
is another good series or two to
pull us up within about six games
of the top when we go home.
"So far we've been a little too
far back. It's been necessary to
drive the boys a little to keep
them fighting. But if we get-
within six games of first I
think they'll catch fire on their
"Hal Newhouser, supposed to be
our best pitcher, hasn't been any
help for over a month. But we've
had fine pitching from Virgil
Trucks, Freddie Hutchinson, Ted
Gray, Art Houtteman and some
others. This Houtteman kid can't
miss being a great one if he takes
care of himself.
"Now Newhouser is convinced
he's ready to start winning again.
You know Hal's a fighter, and he
wants to keep that big check com-
ing a few more years. He's insist-
ing on pitching his way out of
his slump and even offered the
other day to work from the bull-
pen if necessary.
