Mrs. Ernie Dunlevie posts scores at Bermuda Dunes in official blue-ribboned boater, blue alpaca cardigan over white shirt and trimly tailored slacks.

Ken Venturi wears sweater he designed himself, a trimmed-down, buttoned-up version of the alpaca cardigan, with gray flannel slacks, white cap.

Bing Crosby, with Henry Higgins hat of cotton cord, madras slacks, has characteristic Crosby nonchalance.

Fred Wampler is as neat as a Tamarisk green in gray lisle shirt, flannel slacks, white linen cap.
