Annual Spring Tonrnament
Brilliant Thirtr-lx IIolo Match
Climax of Keen Play In The
"Worlds Record" Contest
A BRILLIANT thirty
six hole final between
George H. Crocker of
the Brookline Country
club and George E.
Morse of the Rutland
Country club, conclud
ed the seventh annual
Spring, or " world's
record" golf tournament, as it is now
universally acknowledged to be; the
Brookline player winning two up and
one to play and a two on the short seven
teenth deciding it.
Both players were going very fast, the
medal rounds one hundred and fifty
three and one hundred and fifty-four.
Retiring for luncheon, two up, Mr.
Crocker rounded the turn in thirty-eight,
one hole more to the good. Mr. Morse
won the twenty-eighth to reduce the
lead, the twenty-ninth was halved and
Mr. Crocker was three up again on the
thirtieth. The thirty-first and thirty
second were halved in bogie, and Mr.
Morse won the thirty-third in par three,
and the long thirty-fourth in four,chang-
ing the aspect of things considerably ; but
a brilliant two on the one hundred and
sixty-five yard thirty-fifth, gave the
match to Mr. Crocker, two up and one
to play. The cards :

In the semi-final, as well, Mr. Crocker
was very much in the limelight, through
his victory over J.D.Foot,the Apawamis
veteran, on the nineteenth green, with
the medal scores seventy-six and seventy
seven. Mr. Crocker was one up at the
turn, but Mr. Foot had evened the match
on the tenth and gained a lead on the
eleventh. Mr. Crocker reversed the ord
er with wins on the twelfth and thirteen
th and Mr. Foot squared matters on the
fourteenth. The fifteenth was halved in
par four, Mr. Crocker won the long six
teenth, 3-4, the short seventeenth was
halved in par 3, Mr. Foot took the eight
eenth, 4-5, and Mr. Crocker the extra
hole and the match, 45.
Farther down the bracket Mr. Crocker
found the journey somewhat easier, his
win from I. S. Robeson of Oakhill, in the
second round, four up and two, and his
first match on the default of S. D. Wyatt
of Fon du Lac.
Mr. Morse went through to the final
without serious inconvenience, winning
fromE. D. Speck of Oakmont, in the
first round, four and three ; R. S. Durs
tine of Ardsley, in the second, five and
Just below Mr. Foot in the pairings,
Mr. Robeson and Henry C. Fownes of
Oakmont, shot off some fireworks and
when the smoke cleared on the twentieth
green, the Rochester player, still had a
few left, with the medal scores seventy
six and seventy-eight. At the turn Mr.
Robeson was one up, but he lost the tenth,
eleventh and twelfth and, two down, the
contest developed into one which silenc
ed the big gallery. The thirteenth was hal
ved in 4, Mr. Robeson won the fourteenth,
56, the fifteenth, 3 I, lost the six
teenth, 3 4, halved the short seven
teenth in 3, won the eighteenth, 45,

four; and Scott Scammell of Trenton,
three and two, in the semi-final; but
other play in the division was not as
easy. Mr. Foot, for instance, started
out with a nineteen-hole win from H. C.
Perkins of Detroit. At the turn the
score was all even and alternating wins
and loses carried the match to the seven
teenth, where, one up, Mr. Foot's ball
lay upon the green ith his opponent's
in the trap. Mr. Perkins' niblick ap
proach, however, was too quick and un
expected forJMr. Foot's caddy and it lost
the hole. The eighteenth was halved,
Mr. Foot winning the nineteenth, 45.
halved the nineteenth in 4, and won the
twentieth, 4 5.
Allan Lard of Chevy Chase, twice
united North and South Champion, and
Scott Scammell of Trenton, both escaped
the consolation by a narrow margin in
the first round. Mr. Lard's opponent
was Col. J. E. Smith of Wilmington, and
one down at the turn, the Chevy Chase
player rallied for a win on the tenth,
twelfth and thirteenth, with halves on
the eleventh and fourteenth. Col.
Smith, however, reduced the lead on the
fifteenth, halved the sixteenth and won

THE SPRING COTILLION
Season's Most Elaborate Dance Replete
With Novelty and Surprise.
Decoration In Exquisite Ilarniony
IVItb Occasion Transform
Carolina Music Ilall
T?! ANTICIPATED from
year to year as the
season's most' elaborate
and formal dance, the
annual Spring Cotillion
at The Carolina, was en
joyed by a company
which taxed the capaci
ty of the music hall, the
program one upon which each number
was a delightful surprise. The decora
tions were in exqusite harmony with the
season and the occasion, a strikingly
realistic effect created by the use of a
huge artificial moon which rose majes
tically from behind the screen upon the
stage, and sank from sight with the last
strains of the closing waltz. In the
opening march, led by Mr. Durstine and
Miss Sewall, its effect was spectacular,
and heightened by the use of "Will
o' the wisp's", (sparklers) which the
dancers carried, and it was used again in
the moonlight two-step for which the
favors were tiny lanterns ;its light trans
forming the hall into an open air garden
and bringing all under its subtle charm.
Other marches were splendidly carried
out, little Margaret Good and Adaline
Corey carrying floral garlands, leading
one in which toy balloons of red and
blue were the favors, and Mr. Dillon
and Miss Lewis another in which pairs of
all nations flags were used.
The figures were new, novel and vari
ed, among them the most amusing the
"Davy Crockett," in which the dancer3
shot at targets with air guns and rubber
tipped darts, "gold medals" being award
ed for the highest and the lowest scores ;
the exhibition one which demonstrated
that "The Misses Crockett" were certain
ly well-named as shown by the number
of oughts which stood for "misses."
When the men were able to keep their
attention on the targets they frequently
found the bullseye, but for the most
part, they were like the golfer who plays
mixed foursomes and keeps his eye on
his partner instead of the ball ; the dis
traction the young women who stood
beside the targets to score. Perhaps the
most amusing number of the program, in
"Twenty-ten; poor, poor men," was
