Seggerman Defeats Becker in Nineteen

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 :

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.

Fox Hunting Season Swings Wide Open
With Two Hour Trip-Hammer Race
Afternoon Ilide and Polo Practice
Alito Claim Attention of the Earg-e
Number Who JEnjoj Equitation
THE fox-hunting season
swung wide open early
in the week with a two
hour trip-hammer race
to the death; never a
let-up in mad music
from opening strike cry
to sight catch. 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.
