YES, stranger, Walter
J. Travis, onetime inter
national champion and
many years national title
holder, is still in the
running. If Eleventh an
nual Spring golf tourna
ment was pretty much
his verv special, only
own; four match rounds with a medal
average of seventy-five and a half, and
no match which carried him further than
the fourteenth green. Gold medallist,
also, with a margin of five strokes over a
field of two hundred contestants, and some
of 'em with some speed. 1f Surely golfers
may come and golfers may go, but Travis
goes on forever! If Straight down the
alley, straight for the pin, straight for
the cup; just playing his own best ball
with sublime, subsconscious, preoccupied
concentration, all of which goes to show
that ' ' temperament ' ' is the stuff that
makes champions; the infinite capacity
for detail which is always the surest indi
cation of "genius."
Down the bracket the veteran golfer
skiied, W. E. Truesdell, W. W. Powers,
I. M. Thompson, and I. S. Robeson the
pacemakers in the order given. If Not a
path strewn with roses was it for Robe
son, however, who contended every
match from first hole to last and left
three good men by the wayside; Henry
(1. Fownes, Robert Hunter, and J. 0.
Parrish, Jr., in the order given; all of
them in the running until the trusty putt
ers were sheathed on the eighteenth green.
I'ownes was the first victim who, one
down at the turn, won the eleventh for
the lead which he lost on the thirteenth
:"d regained on the fourteenth, only to
retire before 4's which wTon the sixteenth

Next in line Hunter who two down at

five and three. All even the pair made the
turn, halving the tenth and eleventh. Par

Then the crucial semi-final test with
Parrish who turned homeward one up,
halved the tenth and lost the eleventh for
a tie, with four 5 's and a 4 for halves on
the next five holes, Robeson gaining the
lead on the seventeenth and winning the
match through a halve on the eighteenth.

John II. Clapp a worthy foe in opening
play who was in the game until the seven

also retired to Thompson ; C. M. Ransom,
Thompson's second round opponent, win-
nino- from C S. McDonald on the
