George T. Dunlap, Jr., of Summit, N.
J., who has just celebrated his twelfth
birthday, won double honors in the Boys'
Golf Tournament conducted last week
on the Number 3 course, tying Lawrence
Dow in the medal qualifying round and
winning the final round in the first
division of match play. Young Dunlap
won the play-off of the tie. The tourna

as young Dow. In one of his match
