FOR the first time in
her life Dorothy Camp
bell Hurd is champion
of the United North
and South. Faced by
Miss Elaine Rosenthal
who cleaned up the slate
last year, Mrs. Ronald
H. Barlow, who turned
the trick on her before that, and a
stronger field than she ever had to meet
before she stuck her fastest pace and
maintained it from the first drive in the
qualifying round to the last putt in the
final match with Mrs. Barlow.
Preliminary to the match Mrs. Hurd
had been setting an 80 pace and giving
notice that any winner would have to
travel. And in that round as it turned
out Miss Rosenthal was her only serious
competitor. Mrs. Hurd's 86 remained
good at the end of the day by three over
the Rosenthal score and by nine over
Mrs. Barlow who was third with 95.
Miss Ruth A. Dugan of Chicago was a
close fourth. The remaining places in
the President's division were all under
the 100 mark held by Mrs. C. T. Rus
sell, Miss Sarah Fownes of Oakmont
there is always a Fownes in any presi
dent's division play Mrs. J. S. Pritch
ard of Battle Creek, Mrs. Ralph M.
Hammer of Flushing and Mrs. George
B. Johnson of Boston, all of whom
qualified with 98. A number of very
promising players were relegated to the
Second Division. Mrs. J. P. Price,
finalist of old missed a place by a hair.
Mrs. J. D. Chapman of Greenwich, Miss
Louise Elkins and Mrs. F. S. Danforth
were in under the guns.
The match play at once developed
some sharp surprises, and some stiff bat-
Miss Rosenthal, the title holder
ran into Mrs. Barlow first crack out of
the box. Mrs. Barlow reached the turn
three up, with a medal score of 44 and
held the lead to the finish. So three up
lt was, and one of Mrs. Hurd's most
dangerous opponents stayed no more.
Miss Dugan and Miss Fownes made an
evcn and breathless battle over the whole
ourse, which was finally settled in
favor of the Chicago player on the 19th.
Mrs. Hurd went after Mrs. Pritchard in
whirlwind style, and Mrs. Ralph M.
Hammer showed that she was to be in
the running by an 8 and 7 victory over
Mrs. Barlow had a hard time with
Miss Dugan in the semi-final, and came
through only one up in a spirited and
close contest. Meantime Mrs. Hurd not
only played her best match against Mrs.
Hammer, but probably played the best
golf ever seen played by a woman on
this course. She went out in 37, which
is just one over par, without missing
one single putt on any green.. And so
took the match eight and seven, although
Mrs. Hammer's performance was by no
means a poor one.
And so once again these two veterans
of Pinehurst golfing history were face to
gunner, and to place her shots into the
target with heartrending regularity. In
the bunker on her drive and out in two,
she nevertheless made the first hole in a
par five. She took just one shot, on the
green on the second for a par four.
Mrs. Barlow hunted a hole on her second
shot on the third, which left her three
On the fourth this putt-sinking spell
of Mrs. Hurd's again fascinated the
audience and maintained her lead. She
reached the green one shot to the bad,
and had eleven feet to go for a half.
She put that in as if with a pen dropper.
Mrs. Barlow lost a chance to recover a
hole on the next for lack of this infalli
ble ability, and so they reached 6th
with Mrs. Hurd still three up.
Both players landed their drives on

the 6th green, and here again Mrs
Hurd's accuracy won the advantage with
a 3. it was phenominal. . For on the
long seventh Mrs. Hurd drove into the
rough and came all the way down the
course in the far rear. But she spied
the cup when she reached the edge of
the green in four and forthwith sank her
fifth in par. How is that to be beat?
Mrs. Barlow took the eighth while
Mrs. Hurd took a woodland stroll. But
the game went back to its former place
at the turn where the Pittsburg cham
pion summoned her ball from the rough
to within an inch of the cup and went
down for a win in three.
So they started home with Mrs. Hurd
5 up, having gone out in 41. The nest
hole was the best played hole in the en-.
Mrs. Hurd got within tire match, and was Mrs. Barlow's last
face once more, in the final round of the
North and South.

T! THE DOG SHOW at
the Amiphidrome last
Saturday brought out a
hundred entries more or
less, and made a brave
showing with twenty
three classes, and a
number of champion
dogs on exhibition. The
big arena was none too large to hold
the audience that assembled, and the
day was well nigh spent in the pains-'
taking work of the judges in determin
ing the prizes.
Instead of a general story of this
performance we believe that the public
would rather appreciate the report of
the judges in so far as they were obtain
able when we went to press. Besides
the critical summary of the entries cov
ered by these reports, it should be re
corded that L. C. Williams received a
$5 award for the largest exhibit of
sporting dogs, being none other than
the famous pack of fox hounds. The
Ayrault kennels came in for a special
cash prize for the best single non-sporting
exhibit. Annie Oakley, beside win
ning the pointer class and pushing
Morgan for the best dog in the show,
took down a contribution for the best
dog shown by a lady or child.
Other prizes not covered in the ensu
ing report are
First place in Scotch Collie Class
won by Princess Pat owned by Frances
Considerable interest, centered on the
judging of the miscellaneous breeds by
Miss Helen Morton, in which Lambert
Splane's English Bloodhound, bane of
Niggertown, took first place over Miss
Esther Tuft's Sheep dog, Mrs. Thomas'
French Poodle and Mrs. Nat Hurd's
Portugese Whatls-It, which were award
ed prizes in the order named.
The Judges Reports were as follows:
THE BEST DOG IN THE SHOW.
The judges had a hard time indeed
to pick the best of any breed in the
show. As one by one a corker was al
lowed out of the ring, the contest nar
rowed with interest to Roy, a pointer
