UTLQQK VOL. XXII,NO. 1G SATURDAY MORNING, MARCH, 15 1919 FIVE CENTS DWIGHT L. ARMSTRONG Wins The Spring Tournament, Defeat ing Edward Styles in Saturday's Finals Styles Takes the Qualifying- Medal on the Plaj Off with Armstrong The Qualifying Bound of the Spring Tournament, being disposed of on Mon day and Tuesday and in the last issue of the Outlook, the seventeen sixteens played their first match round on Wed nesday, the upper divisions using Num ber Two and the lower sixteens going over Number Three. On the same day a new qualifying round was held among those who had failed to qualify within their classification and this ad ded a handicap eight and a handicap four to the number of division playing. The total field then stood at 284. Dwight L. Armstrong and Edward Styles, who had tied for the medal, landed in opposed brackets by the luck of the draw. Both Avon their first round matches handily, on Wednesday. Armstrong played against W. II. Ful ler, of Worcester, and won by 5 and 4. Styles defeated Joe Bydolek of Buf falo, by 4 and 3. The outcome of these two matches had been discounted in ad vance and the day, as a whole, was singularly free from sensational con tests or incidents. H. C. Fownes won by a wide margin against G. M. How ard in the second sixteen, and went around in 80. Armstrong and Styles both finished around the 80 mark and if anybody did any better on Wednes day he failed to let us know about it. We happened to be at the tenth green when C. L. Becker and Dr. George Par ry came along in the second sixteen and nonchalantly halved that par 4 hole in threes, but as they took par 4 to make the next hole we quit them cold and returned to the clubhouse, where we jotted down the following summary on the back of an envelope.

Ilose alao among1 those present at the Distribution of Trophies A small but determined field took part in tho Pinehurst Championship Tennis Tournament this week, and dis posed of a total of 226 games, exclusive of sets that went by default in the course of four days' play. Miss Carolyn Bogart, who seems to have established herself as tho annual winner of the women's trophy in this event, came through to tho final as us ual without any great difficulty, dispos ing in succession of Miss Billo Bun ton and Miss Esther Tufts, and winning against Miss Judith Jenks, in the fin al, in two straight sets. Miss Bogart gathered in a second trophy, in the mixed doubles, where she played in partnership with N. A. Rose, the Longwood expert. In the final, playing against Miss Mabel S. Eice and Roger Ward, Miss Bogart and Rose were "doAvn" at the start but rallied and forced the set to deuce, finally tak ing it by 8-6. The second and deciding set was finished very quickly, Miss Rice and Ward losing it by 1-6. C. F. Watson, Jr., of the Westchester Country Club, won every one of his sets in tho men's singles, defeating Raymond Dalfer of South Shore, II. T. Dana of Pinehurst, and Roger Ward. The final, Watson versus Ward, went to the Westchester player in 6-3, 6-1, 6-2. Mr. Ward had his revenge in the men's doubles, where he and N. A. Rose played against Watson and Major Ran ney. This was the hardest fought con test of the tournament, and although Ward and Rose won in the final analy sis they had to fight an uphill battle in every set except the fourth and last. The final went their way by 7-5, 6-4, 4-6 and 6-1. MEN'S SINGLES First round: Roger Ward, Montreal, beat N. A. Rose, Longwood, 6-1, 6-2 ; C. F.
