Situational GO on Hi
Second Day
A field of 316 teed off in the qualify
ing round of the Spring Tournament,
Monday, half of the contestants play
ing on Number two and the other half
using Number Three a process which
Avas reversed on the second day of he
round. The number of players was the
greatest that has ever taken part in any
one day of tournament play since golf
was discovered.
MONDAY'S 18 HOLES
At the conclusion of the first round
Dwight L. Armstrong of the Oakmont
Club led the great fieldwith a round of
38-37, 75, on No.two. Armstrong, it
will be remembered, took the medal in
the Midwinter Tournament here, two
years ago, and followed it up by de
feating Phil Carter in the final, who
came 'in second L. D. Pierce of Ekwa-
nok, was the only other player to break
80 on the first day and as Pierce,s 40-39
79, was made on Number Three he was
looked upon as having a fair chance to
overtake Armstrong m the second day s
play. Edward Styles who was expecteu
to come in around the top, was away
down in the list with an 85 made on No.
two and was apparently hopelessly out
of the running.

jin the lead so far as the men who had
finished immediately after him on Mon

THE HORSE SHOW
A Great Field of 163 Entries Lady
Babbie takes the Bine Ribbon
llockett and Porin each Take
Two Jtllttion
Tho second annual Horse Show, held
under the auspices of the Pinehurst
Jockey Club on Saturday March 1st was
easily the best horse show that has
been held in the South in recent years
Tho great field of 163 entries from all
parts of tho country surpassedthe most
sanguine expectations and was a flat
tering tribute to the reputation gained
by the Jockey Club in the few short
years it has existed.
In one respect the show was unique.
The Outlook with its ear perpetually
to the ground, has not yet heard a sin
gle expert adverse criticism of tho work
of tho five Judges, Fred B. Shreves of
Philadelphia, A. W. Sankey of Southern
Pines, T. H. Hogsett, of Cleveland,
Harrison Williams of New York, and
N. S. Hurd of Pittsburg, Their deci
sions were carefully but swiftly made
and were obviously as unanimously ar
rived at as the published decision of tho
Peace Conference. Jay V. Hall, too de
serves Honorable mention for his effi
cient work as Ring Master and Bureau
of Information. We heard him simul
taneiously and all in the same breath,
issuing instructions to 21 different rid
ers, explaining to an anxious inquirey
that a gaited saddle horse was not nec
essarily a saddle horse that had been
given the gate, and showing just how
a horse that was too small for the 15-2
class had become a trifle too large by
the time the class was reached, orsome
thing like that.
Nat Hurd's Porin carried off the
first blue awarded during the day, tak
ing the first in Class L, Running Horses
in Hand, and also took the blue inClass
6, -Thoroughbred Hunters in Hand, be
sides winning the second prize in Class
10, Thoroughbred Saddle Horses.
Marshall Hall's Ray-O-Light won in
the last named class, and took the sec
ond prizes in the other two classes in
which Porin won the blue.
Lady Babbie, entered and ridden by
Lieut. Col. D. W. McEnery won decisi
vely in the Officers Mount, Class No. 11
against a large field, took the blue for
Saddle Horses 15-2 and over, and
wound up by winning in Class 14,
