VOL. XVII, NO. 2 SATURDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 13, 1913 FIVE CENTS CONTEST OF MANY THRILLS Seggerman Defeats Becker in Nineteen Hole Final of Antnmn Tournament Eighty-one Captures Qualification Trophy for Whlttemore Over II cord Field of O-i Contestants IN A contest of many thrills Henry V. Seg german of Englewood won the president's tro phy of the tenth annual Autumn golf tourney from Charton L. Becker of Woodland, the out come hanging in the balance from iirst green to nineteenth. Going out in forty each, the pair turned home all even, Seggerman winning the third and Becker the fourth, the remain ing holes being halved. Becker gained the lead on the tenth with a par four, making the green in two ; a second to the pit costing Segger man two strokes and the hole. The Englewood player evened matters on the eleventh with a clean-cut four, the Wood land player missing his putt, but he lost the twelfth, six-five. A topped drive for Becker and a screamer for Seggerman seemed to decide it on the thirteenth, but the Woodland veteran was game and played across the "elbow," snug up to the green, and the balls lay alike in two. Becker's approach putt left him a good bit away, but sent the ball down in a line four, while Seggerman missed at a much shorter distance. The fourteenth was perfectly played in three, with the crisis on the fifteenth where the Wood land golfer failed to run down an easy putt for a halve. Seggerman gained a stroke on the way to the five hundred and seventy-two yard sixteenth which gave him a five to tie; and fours and lives halved the two remaining holes ; a second to the pit at the left of the green cost Becker the extra hole, but a brilliant off the green try for a halve was close enough to stop one's breath for an in stant. 1 The cards : SKGGERMANout 65453346 440 Becker out 65543346 440 Seggerman in 6 4 6 5 3 4 5 4 54282 Becker in 45543564 54181 Seggerman's semi-final was eight and seven from Dr. J. S. Brown of Mont clair who had advanced on a nineteen hole win from Rev. T. A. Cheatham of Salisbury. In the second round E. T. Manson of Framingham gave the winner a stroke for stroke match which the home green decided, Manson having ad vanced on a nine teen-hole win from A. A. Stags of Chicago. In the first round Seggerman recorded eight and seven over G. F. Brown of Huntingdon, f Becker's triumphal progress down the bracket began with a six and five win from P. L. Gallagher of Montclair. F. S. Pusey of Havana lost seven and six, and T. J. Moran of Metacomet, five and four. Stagg found Brown a hard nut to crack in the first round of the consola tion, but the nineteenth settled it, and R. C. Steese of Youngstown and F. D. Wilkerson of the same club, were dis posed of by four and two, and four and three. Wilkerson's victims were S. D. the fifteenth, halving the sixteenth and seventeenth, and winning the eighteenth. Parker W. Whittemore of Brookline led the field of sixty-four contestants in qualification with a card of eighty-one, withdrawing from match play. Man son's eighty-five was second; one hun dred and one and a triple tie, making the limit of admission to the first division.

A mile west of the Village a fresh trail was struck, and fifteen min utes later, Reynard was going fast with a good ten-minute lead which he main tained for nearly an hour by circles and figure eights, between Pinehurst and West End. Then hard pressed, the crafty old set tler, victor in many a run, showed the hunt a few new tricks in hillside log hopping and swamp doubles, but all to no avail. A trump the pack had for every trick, and speed and endurance alone prolonged the race as, cornered, the fox dodged from swamp to hillside, and from hillside to swamp. Again and again it was a sight race, and apparently all over but the kill, as time and again the clever fellow saved himself at the last moment. Outwitted, at last how ever, in a swamp he was forced into the open directly in front of the Hunt, and a magnificent two hundred dash ended a thrilling morning. On a second hunt a double trail divided the pack, one-half making for Jackson Springs in a straight line, and the other working out a cold trail. Unable to reassemble the hounds until late in the forenoon, master and huntsmen found themselves checkmated. "We done know whar deres two foxes jes' de same," commented old Nat, which is even more satisfactory than a kill for those who are anticipating the coming weeks. Mr. James Boyd of Weymouth, the magnificent estate located in the nearby woods which bear the name, was a recent visitor who takes a keen interest in fox hunting. Mr. Boyd has suggested that a meet at Weymouth followed by a hunt breakfast, might be enjoyable later on. Among the many enjoying riding are Mr. and Mrs. Dreyfus, Messrs. Stagg, Southworth, Barrett, Jones, d Este, Smith, Grymes, and the Misses Segger man, Priest and Grymes.
