Walter J. Travis carried
off both qualification and
match play honors in the
tenth Annual United
North and South Amateur golf Cham
pionship, finding only one "hazard" on
the journey. From start to finish the
former British and American champion
was consistent, almost mechanical in his
accuracy, round after round varying
only a stroke or two, and against his
skill few he met could cope. Undoubt
edly Travis is still Travis ; still a figure
to be counted on when experts
In the thirty-six hole final W. R.
Tuckerman of Chevy Chase, who by
coincidence of the draw started the top
of the bracket, met Mr. Travis and
speculation formed the subiect of many
interested club houie and hotel corridor
Rarely has a larger gallery assembled
to witness an important final contest
and it grew in volume as the match
progressed. The first hole was halved,
Mr. Travis winning the honor on the
second hole but losing it on the fourth,
gaining a lead of two up with wins on
the sixth and seventh. The tenth and
eleventh were halved, Mr. Travis won
the twelfth, halved the thirteenth, lost
the fourteenth, halved the fifteenth
and sixteenth, lost the seventeenth and
gained the lead again on the eighteenth.

Mr. Travis started the afternoon
round at a record gait, took the first
hole with a par four to a bad six for his
opponent, and lost the second, six
four. A pair of threes and a four captured
the next three holes, the sixth and sev
enth were halved, and a two for
Tuckerman won the eighth, but a bad
six lost the ninth, and the Chevy Chase
player turned homeward four down.
Things brightened up a bit on the tenth
when Tuckerman went down in three
laying an approach iron from a pit dead
to the hole. The eleventh was a halve
and Travis took the next two holes and
halved the fourteenth for the match.
The bye holes were played and his card
for the round, a brilliant 73 :

The climax of the match came in the
second round when Mr. Travis met W.
gallery in suspense, a win in two on the
short seventeenth, shifting odds in fa
vor of Mr. Travis, only to see the pen
dulum swing back again when Mr.
Fownes took the eighteenth in four to
five. The nineteenth and twentieth
holes were halved in par fours, and the
gallery waited around the twenty-first tee
for the final test. The Pittsburger's
drive was slightly pulled, and his iron
missed the green. Travis' drive was a
trifle short but straight down the course,
and his iron made the ereen. Fownes'
approach ran past the hole, and Travis

C. Fownes, Jr., of Oakmont, and as
usual the battle raged fast and furious
and not until the twenty-first green was
reached did the smoke clear and the
Garden City expert claim the brilliant
victory. It was nip and tuck to the
turn where Mr. Travis was one hole to
the good, and he increased his lead to
two up on the tenth, but the score was
all even again on the twelfth green.
An alternate win and lose on the thir
teenth and fourteenth, and halves on the
fifteenth and sixteenth, kept the big
played safe. Fownes made a try for a
half, missed, and Travis went down in
four. The cards :

Wr. Henry St. John Smith Become
Bride of Mr. C. B. Barrowi.
The many friends of Mrs. Henry St.
John Smith an annual visitor for
many years, will be interested in the fol
lowing clipping from the Portland Tel
egram relative to her marriage on April
3, to Mr. Charles D. Barrows :
The marriage of Mrs. Henry St. John
Smith and Charles D. Barrows, both
prominently identified in Portland's
social circles, took place at high noon
on Saturday at the residence of her
daughter, Mrs. Henry G. Beyer, Jr., on
Pine Street. Only the immediate rela
tives of the families were present. Mr.
Malcomb .Barrows acted as best man,
and the bride was attended by her son,
Mr. Henry St. John Smith, and daughter
Mrs. Henry G. Beyer. Reverend Ray
mond Calkins was the officiating clergy
man. The bride wore her traveling
suit of a mauve shade, and a becoming
small toque of violets. Mr. and Mrs.

marriage ceremony for a brief wedding
trip and on their return they will be at

they will pass the summer.
Mr. and Mrs. Barrows have long been
