Song, Laughter and Contageous Fan at
Dinner of the Advertising Golfers
D. M cK( Iiloyd JSxpreaaes the purpose
of the Leagrue and Many Brilliant
Speech Are Made
IT HAS been many a
day since the Carolina
Hotel has witnessed an
occasion as vibrant with
fun, brilliant to look up
on and wholly diverting
as the annual dinner of
3 advertising fraternity
which took place here
last Friday night. There was Colonel
Tread well wrapped in the new dignity of
office, capped with a diminutive imitation
of a Third Avenue dicer, advancing
down the hall to the uproarous
applause of queens and marshals all
wonderfully arrayed, resplendent as
rainbows and drunk with delight,
followed by Butler, the majestic, and
Hamilton the inimitable, to the tune of
the penny pipe, and Get Out and Get
Under, rendered by the infatuated band.
The kettle drum, the sparkle of the laugh
ing vintages of champagne, soft lights,
bright colors, lightsome partners and a
merry feast, songs and banter and the
fox trot between entree and ices warmed
the hearts of the multitude and fortified
them against the coming oratory.
The verdict was unanimous that Uncle
Davie McK. Lloyd, dean of the Adver
tising Golfers and vice-president elect
stated the platform of the occasion.
That golf was a magnificent thing, and
prizes in nowise to be despised, but that
association, friendship and fond recollec
tion were the ultimate objects of the
league, and the whole world.
"and statistics"
President A. G. C. Hammesfahr dwelt
on the dry subject of statistics. Some
one must attend to these vulgar details.
The. result of his figures were of great
and lasting value, and caused the utmost
astonishment. It appears that in case of
invasion the members of the league alone,
driving from a parapet 5 miles long could
be depended upon to mow down an army
of 50,000 men. Drafted they could dig a
trench 100 feet wide, 10 feet deep and 2
miles long in an afternoon with their
niblics.
The time pent by them looking for
balls would find the lost Charlie Boss or a
expended by them during a day's play
would beat 100,000 carpets, while their
remarks in the same space of time would
(and doubtless do) occupy the exclusive
effort of 160 recording angels.
MATCH PLAY
The immense impression made by these
discoveries was dispelled by the wild
demonstration accorded Colonel II. H.
Treadwell. The glee club led the volume
of "He's a Jolly Good Fellow," and the
tuneless screamed with rapture. The Colo
nel, true to his title, laid emphasis upon
the love of battle that imbues the Anglo
Saxon, and voiced the consensus of opin
ion that medal play would have to give
way to match play, in which a fellow has
someone handy to beat. This was received
with fervent approval except in Pop
Freeman's quarter.
This was greeted by Hank and Hi with
three rousing cheers.
THE MESSAGE OF CIVILIZATION
Afetr accurately describing St. Peter
the president then introduced B. D. But
ler, who deposed and said that he was
somewhat overadvertiscd. Nevertheless,
he proceeded to make a serious and very
substantial contribution to the philosophy
and ethics of golf, and the purposes of
the league. His subject was Caddies, and
his message one of the utmost moment
not only to golf players, but to every
thoughtful citizen of the Republic. In
the United States the caddies are boys
the young manhood of the Country, in
whose hands lie the future of our inheri
tance. There are 400,000 of these young
sters, who come daily under the influence
of the picked men of our time. He urged
that the golf club be made the lighthouse

PHILIP CARTER, GRANTLAND RICE AND ROY BARNHILL
Amid scenes of the wildest enthusiasm
it was announced that Frank Gauss had
been elected secretary and Don M. Parker
treasurer. . The last named was hoisted
upon the table and allowed to compliment
Uncle Davie upon his sentiments. Then
the Western Union joined the debate, and
in the words of Among Carter arose to
remark :

are the next runners to take the message
of civilization. We had better look to
it that they get a message straight, and
clean and manly, and remember that they
never fail to react to a kind word and a
touch on the shoulder.
LOU HAMILTON, THE INIMITABLE
No terrestial being can presume to say
what Lou Hamilton's varied and rippling
discourse was about. With proper indignation-
and sorrow he rejected five cent
cigars in $50 bandages. He placed the

Fall Acctount of the Week's
Advertising: Tourney with
Scores and Summary
SEVENTY-TWO holes
in 337 strokes, the grand
championship and the
congratulations of the
multitude was the record
made last week by
Grantland Bice in the
annual tournament of
the Advertising inter
ests. There was a week's play, on an in
genious schedule which resulted in eight
or more prizes every day, and scenes
around the great scoreboarrd resembling
Herald Square on Election Night every
evening. The main game was 72 holes of
medal play lasting over four days, in
three classes for men with a reward each
day for the best gross and net score of
the day in each class, with the grand
prize on the total both net and gross.
And no man could win but one of the
lesser prizes. The women played on the
same system, doing nine instead of eigh
teen holes per day.
Rice's victory was very close, E. T.
Manson of Framingham ,last year's win
ner, finished right behind him in 341.
But his record was in all respects the best
of the week. His score of 77 the last day
was the best recorded in the tournament,
as follows:
Out- 45543345 437
In 35455454 54077
This is the best kind of golf on Number
3 course for anybody, anyday.
C. McCormick of New Brunswick cap
tured the major trophy, for the best net
score of the tournament with a total of
302. He and Eice, and indeed most of
the final winners were also trophy lifters
in one of the days' play. C. T. Russell,
Ardsley, carried off the championship of
the second division with a gross score of
385 97, 99, 98, 91; J. C. Todd being his
nearest comeptitor with 393. The best
net in this division went to William Camp-,
bell of Detroit, 360, who also won the
prize for the best net score on the first
day's play in 90.
In Class C, F. E. Nye, Dunwoodie, by
the margin of one point took the tophy
from under the guns of H. J. Frost with
a gross of 402 points for the week 's play,
