Porter and William C. Fownen, Jr., are Victims In Order Given ft SATURDAY'S final round for the Presi dent's trophy in the ninth annual Spring golf tournament was the fitting ending to a remarkable week. To be sure, B. Warren Corkran of the Balti more Country Club, was not hard pressed in his five and four victory over William C. Fownes, Jr., former national cham pion, but he was going fast enough to m ke his game in itself the climax of sensational play. Recording seventy seven to eighty for Fownes, Corkran re tired for luncheon, two up. Fownes ral lied for a win on the twenty-fourth in the afternoon to lower the score, but Corkran was two up again on the twenty fifth and he maintained it with halves on the twenty-sixth (which Fownes might have won on the grean), and the twenty-seventh and gradually in creased his lead, winning five and four on the thirty-second. Bye holes were played with a seventy-one as a result ; a total for the day of one hundred and forty-eight, f Mi.

Porter of the Allegheny Country Club, in which the result hung in doubt as a feather floats downward and one speculates upon its resting-place, from first hole to last. 1 From the start it was apparent that the pace was to be very fast and the pair made the turn in forty each, even up. Corkran won first honors coming home, taking the tenth. 45. The eleventh was halved in 6, Porter losing an oppor tunity to win on the green (where, by the way, he was a bit short throughout the match), for Corkran's tee shot made the rough. Porter captured the twelfth, 56, and likewise the thirteenth, 45, where Corkran was in the rough again. On the fourteenth, Corkran won, 45, OUT IN CUT through Porter's error on the green, and the Baltimorean holed a fifty-foot run-ning-up approach to win the fifteenth in 2, which Porter failed to equal only by a hair's margin. The sixteenth was like wise sensational, for Porter laid a pulled tee shot from the rough, dead to the hole and went down in 3 to 4 for his opponent. On the short seventeenth, through a brilliant putt by Porter which looked very much like a negotiated stymie, f The twentieth was a hole of many thrills, for Corkran's second made the whisker bunkers guarding the green at the left and rested just on the edge of the pit, while Porter's iron placed him but a few yards short of the green. Corkran's recovery was good but he &?ir?)D?3D?tf CI 8 8 ri . i Li- V ri I '"-'S 1 : J - 'if' .. 4 ( ' - -; -j " ' v; '1. r fJ , , ' v i y . .,' - .f afs! i,'C-' -, ' ') - r '' ;-u:.'-;.-. .

Dormie one, Cork ran captured the eighteenth, 46, for a tie through a pulled and short drive by Porter which went far out to the rough at the right, and from which he recov ered well but at the loss of the neces sary stroke. The nineteenth was a ha.ve in 4 overran the green and Porter lost an opportunity to win by being short on his runnlng-up approach putt. Corkran made a fine try for the hole but hit the cup, bounded to the left and lay dead. With the match at stake Porter missed by a hair and halved in 5. 1 Both tee shots were fine and straight down the course on the final and twenty-first hole, (Concluded on page two) DANCING IN THE MOONLIGHT Suggestive of Glorious Open Is Program for Tonight's Spring Cotillion Decorations and Furor In Keening with Color and Fragrance of .Perfect March liar SINGULARLY in keep ing with the season is the program for to night's Spring Cotillion at The Carolina, decora tions, figures and favors suggestive of - the color and fragrance of perfect March days.
