Woman's Championship Develops Keenest
Play In History of Classic
JMrs. Harlow's Matches With Mn.

Contents of Jtany Thrills
THE women's event of
the Championship reached
an anti-climax in the
semi-final between Mrs.
Eoland H. Barlow, for
many years eastern
champion, and Mrs. J.
V. Hurd, International
champion as Dorothy
Campbell. If Surely no gallery has
surpassed in size the vast throng
which followed play with breathless inter
est, for never was there a moment when
the attention could be diverted or the
question of the final outcome removed
from the critical point of mythical
uncertainty. 1f The strain of the contest
was apparent in the contestants also, and
Mrs. Barlow 's ultimate win was not alone
the result of skill but endurance superi
ority which became a potent factor as
the match neared its close; Mrs. Ilurd 's
brilliant, 3 on the fifteenth followed
by an indifferent 7 on the sixteenth and
what might be called in the language
of golfers, "mighty hard luck" on the
decisive eighteenth.
Mrs. Barlow took the first hole in par
5 and lost an opportunity to win the
second through a shot on which she was
obliged to lose a stroke through playing
back, halving in 7. Mrs. Ilurd squared the
match with a par 4 on the third and
won the fourth with a one over bogey 5.
The next three holes were halved in 6, 4
and 7, a stymie costing Mrs. Barlow the
seventh. The Merion golfer took the
eighth in par 3 to tie, but Mrs. Ilurd won
the ninth in the same figure to make the
turn one up with a medal card 46 to 47.
Mrs. Barlow took the tenth in a par 4
through Mrs. Kurd's pulled second, and
'the eleventh was halved in bogey 5. Mrs.
Harlow's' third to the pit cost her the
twelfth, and Mrs. Hurd 's shot to the
whiskers and then to the pit, lost her
the thirteenth. The fourteenth was halved
in bogey 5, and a perfect 3 gave Mrs.
Hard the lead on the 212-yard fifteenth
here Mrs. Barlow was trapped on her
,1, ive. If On the sixteenth Mrs. Hurd
showed signs of tiring, following up a
irood drive with a short second and top
ing her third to a trap. Well out in 4
sl"' missed her fifth, was on the green in
6 and holed a 7 against a bogey 5 which
tied the score for Mrs. Barlow. On the
short seventeenth both players narrowly
escaped trouble on their drives, Mrs. Hurd
having a bit the worst of it and with an
opening to the green, but her approach was
short and she required two putts for a 4.
Mrs. Barlow's tee shot just missed the
trap and she made a fine approach which
looked good for a 3, but which she failed
to hole, halving in 4.
a pull which landed in a pit, the ball ly
ing snugly ensconsced in a heel print
which took- one stroke to get it into play
and another to get it out of thi trap, and
these two strokes gave Mrs. Hurd an 8
while Mrs. Barlow required but 6, record
ing 46 to 50 for the homeward journey,
or a total of 93 to 96 for the round:

Perhaps it was only fancy, but I
imagined Mrs. Barlow's hand trembled
perceptibly as she teed up on the eigh

strain in a certain grim tenseness, but be
that as it may, both balls were beauties
well down the course. Likewise the
