In the second division Miss Edith Barnett of New Haven won, and in the third, Miss Gwendolyn Cummings of Brookline. In qualification the race was a pretty one between Mrs. Alexander McGregor of Belmont who won the gold medal with a card of one hundred and two, Mrs. Thrift making one hundred and three, and Miss Elkins one hundred and five. If The surprise of the week came in the first round of match play and the defeat of Mrs. McGregor by Miss Dor othy Hutchinson of Detroit in a match which was decidedly out of the ordinary. Going out Miss Hutchinson won only the ninth hole, Mrs. McGregor winning five and turning home four up. Coming in, however, Miss Hutchinson reversed the order, squared the match on the six teenth, gained a lead on the seventeenth, and halved the eighteenth. Advancing to meet Miss Elkins the young Detroit player gave the former United North and South , Champion a close match which the eighteenth hole decided. Halving the first hole, Miss Elkins gained the lead on the second, lost it on the third, 43, and halved the fourth and fifth in 5's and 4's. Miss Hutchinson won the sixth, but lost the seventh, captured the eighth.in a bogey, 3, and driving out of bounds picked up on the ninth. The crisis came on the tenth where Miss Hutchinson with two strokes to the good, failed to win and halved in 6. Miss Elkins won the eleventh, 34, the twelfth, 45, and halved the thirteenth s. Miss Hutchin son took the fourteenth and fifteenth, 68, 67, but lost the sixteenth, 79, divided honors in'the seventeenth in 3, and, dormie one, played the eighteenth badly and lost two down, 5 7.

J. McDermott who played with Donald J. Ross, Massachusetts Champion Alexan der Ross who was paired with W. G. Fovargue, and M. J. Brady who was partnered with Thomas McNamara. If As for spectacular play no hole was , without it, and time and time again six drives went hissing straight down the course almost beyond the range of ; vision. To be sure, some of the players found the rough, and a few of them the traps which have made the number two course famous, but it did not seem to bother the experts in the least. Donald Ross was the bright and par ticular star of the afternoon, and the sixty-seven which he recorded in play, with McDermott won the first money of the liberal purse contributed by visitors, the other two pairs tying for second at seventy-three, f The cards : GOING OUT Ross & McDermott 44345353 334 Ross & Fovargue 44356353 437 Brady & McNamara 45445363 337 COMING IN Ross & McDermott 44344343 43367 Ross & Fovargue 44445343 53673 Brady & McNamara 35464343 43673 Saturday evening the group were en tertained by Manager Fred C.
