content type field not printing

In drupal 7, I defined a field for a custom content type and am trying to display its value via page.tpl.php. Nothing is appearing in the rendered page.

Here’s the relevant piece of page.tpl.php. The field is ‘field_mast”. Note that I added print $title just so I could be sure that this template is being used. It is.

    <h1>Perinote&trade; <?php print $content['field_mast'] ?><br>        <?php print $title ?> <br>Organize Your Way</h1> 

My content type fields are:

Label  machine name field type            widget Title  title        Node module element mast   field_mast   Text                  Text field Body   body         Long text and summary Text area with a summary 

And for Manage Display, I have:

Field   Label        Format Body    <Hidden>     Default mast    Above        Default 

Finally, for my actual content, I have:

Title: Notes contacts.... mast: User Guide Body <p>This user guide... Text format: Full HTML 

Any ideas on what I need to do to get ‘mast’ to print?
