Trouble with cron

Hello World!
Need some advise. I setup few crons on my server, but to my surprise none of them seems working. Any idea what am i missing here? Is group rights a must in order for cron to run?

Crontab:
Code:
mandrel@sp74t0006c :[/etc/cron.d(14825)]$cat /etc/crontab
SHELL=/bin/bash
PATH=/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin
MAILTO=root
HOME=/

# For details see man 4 crontabs

# Example of job definition:
# .---------------- minute (0 - 59)
# |  .------------- hour (0 - 23)
# |  |  .---------- day of month (1 - 31)
# |  |  |  .------- month (1 - 12) OR jan,feb,mar,apr ...
# |  |  |  |  .---- day of week (0 - 6) (Sunday=0 or 7) OR sun,mon,tue,wed,thu,fri,sat
# |  |  |  |  |
# *  *  *  *  * user-name command to be executed

mandrel@sp74t0006c :[/etc/cron.d(14825)]$

My cron:
Code:
#################################################################################################################

Compared to the traditional crontab that is maintained with the crontab command, the /etc/crontab is to be directly edited (by root) and has an additional user-name field.
