THE PINEHURST OUTLOOK
Loeb the Champion
(Concluded from page three)
not be denied a moment in her
triumphant progress. Mrs. P. W.
Davison held her up as the Bel
gians held up the Prussian Army,
for two games. And that was all
she lost. Miss Esther Tufts, who
had made a very substantial show
ing at the other end of the bracket
against Miss Dorothy Brown of
Montclair and Miss Eleanor Abbe
of Bethlehem, was not able to
stem the tide. She put up a game
fight against too great odds. Miss
Bogart won, 6 0, 6 0.
Miss Tufts' match against Miss
Brown was a very sandy uphill
fight. She lost the first set 5 7,
and still pulled out the match
against the champion putter, 6 4,
Meantime Miss Myrtle Rogers
had found Mrs. Davison- a little
too strong, and succumbed after
a close match, 6 3, 6 2.
THE MEN'S DOUBLES
The most spectacular play of
the tournament, and one of the
finest rallies we can remember
occurred in the Men's Doubles.
Loeb and Colby, winner and runner-up
in the singles, both strong
players, and a stronger team,
drew a bye and then made for the
finals by smashing their way
through the Pinehurst double
team, composed of Blagden and
Dana, 63, 62. And here they
found themselves up against H.
C. Fenn and G. L. Austin, new
comers in the lists, running mates
from Hartford, Connecticut. This
team had put Amy and Collinge
out of the running after two hard
sets (6 3, 6 2) and escaped Dr.
Coburn and his partner by the de
fault route. This was a disap
pointment for the doctor's game
against Colby in the singles had
been so effective that a hot con
test was expected from his team
in the double event.
So thehopes of Hartford came
into the finals against the strong
est combination developed in the
singles. And at once proceeded
to justify the prophets by losing
the first set 2 6, and the second
after a flash or two of speed
4 6. Darkness settled over the
battlefield, and left one set for the
morrow the finals being the best
two out of three.
And the morrow brought forth
an astonishment. Hartford got
down to business, brought up
their artillery, started a volley
that eked out a scant victory on
the first set 8 6, drove the lead
ers into the ditch on the fourth
6 4, and, wonderful to relate,
ended in glory, game, set, match
and trophy, 60.

Ourselves As Others See Us
(Concluded from page eight)
but is nevertheless a scene of bril
liance in the evening, with the
lavish toilettes of the ladies. This
is typical of Pinehurst; that the
women play golf all day in any
old togs, and then dress in the
evening in imported frocks with
the firm intention of putting a
large dent in the reputation for
luxuriousness of that old heroine,
the Queen of Sheba.
Guests of any hotel in Pine
hurst are welcome in any other
of the Pinehurst houses. The
Carolina ball-room in the even
ings is full of visitors from all the
other stopping places in the com
munity. The regular Saturday
night dance here is quite a gay
affair, and the floor is filled to
overflowing. , ,

Village or Pinehurst N-O
ESJTTfvSi? uNEHURST is, to be brief, the most complete and perfectly
t r e(lu'PPe(l Fall, Winter and Spring Resort in the world; an
J sW hi Ideal Village created by the late James W. Tufts. Possessing
l FggVy exceptional opportunities for outdoor life, it also offers right
vl Ry.lnmh- con(litions for living in every sense of the words; its unsur
1 Krfco!5 passed location in the far famed long-leaf pine thermal belt
LJL or Sand Hill region, responsible for a winter climate generally
acknowledged to possess few equals in the rare purity of its
air, and the subtle tonic of its sunshine.
As the winter Golf centre of the two hemispheres, Pinehurst is now
thoroughly established, its unequalled equipment embracing three distinct
six-thousand-yard eighteen-hole courses and an additional nine-hole course.
Perfectly maintained and laid out in accordance with modern standards,
they rank with the world-famous courses, and the special holes are "quoted"
wherever the game is known. Here are held annually four contests of inter
national importance beginning with the Midwinter tournament in January,
and concluding with the United North and South Amateur Championship in
April. A fireproof locker room, shower baths and observation and lunch
rooms, add to the attractions of the conveniently located Country Club house.
Closely seconding Golf in importance, are Trap Shooting and Tennis,
the annual Mid-winter Handicap and Tennis Championship held annually in
January, classic events which attract the country's best, a significant indi
cation of the excellence of the superb equipment for these sports. As the
Hub of Southern good roads, the Village offers special attractions to motorirts
and those who ride and drive; the Livery is of the best and the Garage the
largest in the state. Auto service runs between the Country Club, Station and
various points in the Village.
Forty thousand acres are maintained as Shooting Preserves for Village
guests with good quail arid dove shooting and an occasional turkey or wood
cock. In connection are Kennels of high excellence and equipment neces
sary to meet the demands of the most exacting sportsmen. Rifle and pistol
shooting, polo, fox huntiijg, equestrian sports, baseball, billiards and pool, are
among the attractions which combine happily with social pleasures. The hotel
orchestras are of high standard and dancing is enjoyed by the entire colony.
The Hotels, four in number, include The Carolina, the largest in the
state and one of the best appointed in the south, which with its new seventy
room addition, provides for over five hundred guests in accordance with the
high standard of modern requirements. The Holly Inn, accommodating two
hundred guests, enjoys general popularity, while The Berkshire and Harvard,
caring for one hundred guests . ' . are suited to those desiring a more moderate
rate. The Pine Crest Inn and Lexington are the smaller houses. In addition
to twenty attractive family cottages, well furnished and provided with modern
conveniences, are a rapidly increasing number ot private nomes ; evidence oi
the permanent place the Village holds in the affections of its admirers.
Various utility plants, a Dairy, Creamery and Market Garden, models of
excellence and the only plants maintained on the same large scale for a
similar purpose, play an important part in supplying the needs of the Village
in the way of milk, cream and vegetables. There are also a department
store, pharmacy, meat market, jewelry store, novelty shop, photographic
studio, chapel, schools, library, central power plant furnishing electric
light and steam heat, laundry, refrigerating plant, general office, post, tele
graph and telephone offices, railway station, resident physician, resident
minister, abundant pure water supply, and sanitary sewerage system. In
fact, the Village supplies every modern need offering unequalled and diver
sified attractions for people of refinement at a wide range of P"ce.
Consumptives are excluded.
Pinehurst is seventeen hours from New York and through Fullmansrun
throughout the season direct to the Village over the Seaboard Air Line
Railroad. The western service is excellent. Stopover privileges are granted
to tourists going either north or south. . ..
