Lord Byron Tops
PHOENIX, Ariz., JanT 15. (UP)
Byron Nelson, 1944’s leading money
winner in professional golfdom, set
his sights today on the Tucson Open
next week after running away with
the top prize in the Phoenix tourn
ament with a 274 for 72 holes.
Nelson, who took a 69 on yester
day’s final round, was only two
shots under second place Denny
Shute, the veteran Akron, Ohio,
shotmaker, who posted a 68 on the
last 18 for a 276 total.
Sammy Byrd, ex-New York base
ball player from Detroit, finished
in third place, taking another 68 on
the last 18 for 277.
Byrd was within one stroke of the
money-making ace at the start of
the last round, but lost the tourney
when he wound up in a trap on the
last hole as Nelson laid a 100-foot
approach within a foot of the pin
for top honors.
National PGA champion Bob Ham
ilton, Evansville, Indiana, was in
fourth place. He ended the day
with a sensational 65 on the par 71
course for a 278 total on the 72 roll
Highest ranking amateur, Hot
shot Ed Furgol, Detroit, got a 296.
It was the 11th tournament, inci
dentally, in which Furgol won ama
teur honors while Nelson took the
Slammin’ Sammy Snead, White
Sulphur Springs. Virginia, pre
tourney favorite after his victory in
the Los Angeles Open, finished 13th.
NEW PORK. Jan. 15. (UP)—Base
ball hoped for another “green light"
from Washington today for a fourth
war-time season and should the
game survive an expected man
power crisis, it appeared almost cer

rection of National League President

A 10-man committee now is com
pleting a new agreement under
which the successor to baseball’s
first and only commissioner, the
late Kenesaw Mountain Landis, will
serve. Although its work will not
be done until early next month,
Frick seemed assured of the sup
port necessary to get the position.
LATIN AMERICA SHIPS
TONS OF QUININE BARK
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., Jan. 15
(UP)—Eight hundred tons of qui
nine bark are being received month
ly in the United States from Cen
tral and South American sources,
says Parker Anderson, of the Uni
versity of Minnesota farm staff,
who spent eight months searching
for new supplies in Ecuador, Col
ombia, Peru and Guatemala.
Anoerson recalls that quinine
orginated in the high altitude jun
gle countries of South America in
the 16th century, and says this Ls
evidence that excellent quality is
possible, despite the fact that Java
became the source of supply for 95
per cent of the world’s quinine be
fore the Japanese conquest of that
The university scientist says, how
ever, that advances in research
point to the possibility of producing
a synthetic quinine even better
than the natural variety.
