By David m. Moffit up sports writer Augusta ga., up . Open Champion Ken Venturi is battling a private Jinx. Until he dramatically overcame fatigue in the blistering heat to capture the open last summer Venturi had run into a four year dry spell that appeared about to end his career As a touring professional golfer. The open Victory opened new avenues for the 33-year-old californian including an automatic 10-year invitation to play in the $130,000 masters which begins thursday. So what happens Venturi developed circulatory trouble in his hands and despite a Gallant Effort to overcome this problem goes into the masters with the realization that it would take tremendous fortitude to stay in the running with the rest of the worlds Best golfers. However the lanky Venturi is not discouraged. A sure its giving me some trouble now a a he said during pre masters practice sessions. A but in a determined to lick this Venturi has been fighting the Odds for years. He was one of the hottest Young golfers on the pro circuit in the first four years after he turned professional in 1956. He hit his financial Peak in 1960 when he won More than $41,000 but then went into his decline a winning less than $7,000 in 1962 and less than $4,000 in 1963. Last years u. S. Open when he needed medical care before going out for the second half of the Long 36-Hole final Day appeared to be a turning Point. But now there a that circulatory trouble and Venturi could Well be Back where he was before the open. Less than half of the 93 masters entries were on hand for the first official practice round sunday. Most of the others were at the greater Greensboro i n.c0 open where 52-year-o i d it Sam Snead a three time Mas f ters Champion turned in an la / under Par 273 to win that tour-/,., lament for the eighth time.

Petersen up sports editor Pompano Beach fla., up a the Washington senators have a lot of new faces and what manager ii Hodges Calls a a new Outlook on that does no to mean he has any ambitions like winning the 1965 american league Pennant. A we re not in the contending class but we should Start moving up the ladder Quot said Hodges. A your hitting is going to be better and so is our pitching. And so is our attitude. I think i can safely say we no longer have a defeatist to get the new faces the senators gave up their two Best Ball players outfielder Chick Hinton and Pitcher Claude Osteen. For Hinton they received first baseman Bob Chance and All around Utility Man Woodie held from the Cleveland indians. For Osteen they got outfielder Frank Howard third baseman Ken Mcmullen first baseman Dick Nen and pitchers Phil Ortega and Pete Richert from the los Angeles dodgers. In other deals they obtained Pitcher Nick Willhite and Catcher Doug Camilli also from the dodgers and picked up Roy Sievers As a free agent. If he is healthy Chance will be at first base. If not the Veteran Sievers will get the Call. Sievers who is 39 years old has been showing his old time slugging Power this Spring. Scrappy Don Blasingame will be at second base Slick Fielding de Brinkman at shortstop and Mcmullen at third. In the Outfield with Howard who will play left will be Don lock in Center and either Jim King or Willie Kirkland in right. That does no to leave any one position for held who can play the infield or Outfield. A a a but Woody will see a lot of action Quot Hodges said. A we now have a much stronger Bench so we can do some mane vering. The Veteran Don Zimmer will be kept for Utility duty and this season May see action As a Catcher As Well As an in Lelder. A Rookie Joe Mccabe May win the no. I catching Post from last years regular Mike Brumley. Mccabe hit Only .274 in 27 games with Charlotte last season and Only .158 in 14 games with the Minnesota twins but has looked the Best of the senator receivers this Spring. Because of his Strong showing and the availability of Zimmer Camilli probably will be Farmed out. With Osteen a 15-game Winner gone Buster Narum 9-15 and Bennie Daniels 8-10 will Anchor the pitching staff other starters will be Ortega who was 7-9 with the dodgers Richert who was 2-3 with the same club Frank Kreutzer who had an Overall 5-7 record with the senators and White sox and Willhite who was 2-4 with the dodgers and 7-6 at Albuquerque last season. Last year with Hinton and Osteen the senators finished ninth. This year with All that new blood Hodges thinks better that Post. But a done to bet too much on it.
