week Newcomb led with 749 and George
L. Lyon of Durham, N. C, who shot as
a non-contestant, finished second in 744.
The innovation of the tournament was

three class divisions created by the Lewis
system, which divided the number of
competitors in the first two days' pro
gram (four hundred targets) into three
classes, a score between 379 and 355 de
termining Class A, 354 and 334 Class B,
and 333 and 325 Class C. In the Handi

Dr. J. H. Dreherof Wilmington, N. C,

of Glen Ridge, B. S. Donnelley of Chi
cago, h. D. Kelsey of East Aurora,
Henry Powers of Atlantic City, D. A.
Edwards of Union City, and Dr. W. F.
Clarke of Boston, who were much com
plimented on their impartiality.
The added money and trophies amount
ed to $2,500, a sum exceeding even the
Grand American which is $1,500, but
which guarantees some $700 in addition,
making the total about $2,300. The only
other shoots which equal the Pinehurst
event are the Westley-Hogan and the
Denver Handicap. Mr. Jennings, the
winner of the Handicap, carried away
the magnificent Handicap trophy and
the $500 prize ; Mr, Covert, the Prelim
inary winner, a splendid trophy and $200
in added money, not to mention the
sweepstake winnings of both. There
was also a trophy for Mr. Putnam, the
runner-up in the Handicap.
A noticeable feature of the shoot was
the large number of ladies in attendance
and the fact that many of the partici
pants came in advance of the event, and
a number will linger throughout the
present week to enjoy the diversified
recreations of the Village. For the en
tertainment of the visitors numerous
social affairs were planned, among them
dances on Wednesday, Thursday and
Saturday evenings, with an afternoon
bridge party on Friday. Hardly an
eve rung was without its informal dinners,
and many of the party enjoyed golf,
tennis, riding or fox-hunting before or
"You certainly have the classiest
shoot of all the year," said Charles H.
Newcomb as he was leaving for his train,
" and it's bound to increase in popular
ity because of your varied hotel accom
modations, which appeal to all sizes of
pocket-books, the attractions of the place
in variety of recreation, the charm of
your climate at this season of the year,
and the magnificent generosity and per
sonal interest of Mr. Leonard Tufts,
Pinehurst's owner and your Country
Club President. The boys will talk it
from now until next winter, and the
seventh annual is sure to show the same
gain in numbers, representation and class
that the event has for six years past.
Here's to nineteen-fourteen ! " fAnd
Mr. Newcomb was one of a merry group
who hurried away, happy in memory
Luther J. Squier added new laurels to
his national reputation as a manager,
and Charles H. North looked after the
trap equipment with the skill of an ex
pert. From start to finish the event
went off without a hitch, f Summary :
