REPORT ON WORK ALREADY DONE
Mrs. Bumsey, the treasurer of the Bed

ladies of the village during November
and December turned out the following
Surgical dressings .2018
Knitted articles 64
Two shipments of these knitted things
have already been made, and the Branch
sent also a Christmas package to the
front. The surgical dressings will be sent
off as soon as the proper, wrappings can
This community, as well as every inde
pendent neighborhood in the United
States, is in duty bound to keep up its
quota of hospital supplies, obtaining the
materials and doing the work without
calling upon the 'sorely, pressed head
quarters for anything. The community
has responded to the call for funds to
keep the needed material on hand, but
not to the extent that it is expected they
will when the situation is more clearly
understood. Early in December it was
necessary to negotiate a loan of $300
from the bank of Pinehurst. The re
ceipts and expenditures to date are
Proceeds note bank Pinehurst.. $298.50
Donations and entertainments. . 308.65
Faid Atlanta Branch, gauze and
Paid note due bank 300.00
Balanch cash on hand 10.35
The Branch still have bills for wool and
other material amounting to over $100.
And of course the work has to continue
in ever increasing volume. This means
that our expenses for material will be
double or treble what they have been
hitherto. Donations of either money or
materials will be gratefully received.

Secretary and Treasurer.
THAT TIMES KlIITOniAL
Stepping aside from the high matters
of State, and the saving of the Democ
racy, the New York Times the other day
paused in full career to take up the
cudgels for the Dodo Golfer, and to take
a fall out of those driving parks layed
out by the foul fiend for the embitter
ment of thousands of lives, and the losing
of myriads of balls and characters and
tempers. Especially does it excoriate the
prevalence of dugouts, morasses, barriers
and jungles so intricate that the poor
dub is driven distracted to the nineteenth
hole and for even a look in on Bogey.
Since without question or debate this
indictment is aimed at our own pet and
championship course, the final horror and
master piece of that arch landscape
butcher,Donald Boss and since we admit
the charge, and glory in it, let us first
set forth the counts as they appear
' ' In the host of golfers very few reach
the coveted domain of super-golf. The
average player, capable of bulging with
pride, when his score drops below 100
strokes, furnishes most of the capital
and enthusiasm that maintain private
courses and public links. If Mr. Super-
Golfer and his fellow-experts were segre
gated upon greens of their own, confined
within bunkers built solely with their
own funds, limited to traps dug with no
aid from the despised tyro, it is easy to
imagine how much the ancient game
would lose of its popular interest. To
watch and admire marvelous individuals
who make par scores is a stimulus nec
essary to the average players' golf edu
cation; he looks upon the master clubs
man as proof that it is possible for a
human to attain that excellence which he
himself touches only on rare occasions
upon this or that fairway. But it is
chiefly his own poor efforts, coupled with
a, baseless hope which golf somehow en
courages in deluded minds, that keep
alive his interest in the game.
Why is it, then, that our American
courses or the best of them, at any rate
are being diverted to the requirements
of the super-golfer? The week-end player,
without enough leisure time for constant
practice, or lacking the natural aptitude
for developing into a mighty player,
finds his club links turned into a play
ground fit only for professionals and for
amateurs of conspicuous skill. Traps in
terrupt his every stroke. Bunkers rise to
stop the ball that speeds to the uttermost
limits of his reach. Distances are meas
ured so as to destroy even the fairly pro
ficient player's score; none but the par
wizard can attain them. The whole lay
out of fairways and greens accords with
the needs or fancies of those scarce
creatures whose cards abound in
' ' eagles " or ' ' birdies ; ' ' who, if they
ever found themselves clouting a ball as
many times as ninety or a hundred to
cover eighteen holes; would seek treat
ment for their nerves and muscles at the
It may be that the average golfer is a
spineless being, ashamed to raise a voice
to .uphold his rights in the club. Or
perhaps he is too busy counting his
strokes to meddle in the club's less im
portant affairs. Anyway, he lets the ex
perts run things. The par player domi
nates the Green Committee, lays out the
course to suit himself, remodels it to fit
his tastes as they grow more exacting,
month by month, and finally intersperses
through the greenswards a series of dug
outs, morasses, barrier, and jungles so
intricate that the poor nuisances in the
club's majority are driven to the nine
teenth hole for their only real pleasure.
But the worms will turn. Some day the
down-trodden will rise in their might
of numbers, organize golf courses of
their, own, bar out all who play a hun
dred, and forthwith manage to get a
little fun out of their chosen sport. For
a member who thereafter learns to play
super-golf the penalty will be obvious.
He will, in turn, be ousted by his old
comrades and forced to join a more ex
clusive club suited to his new attain
