Probably never In the history of Amer

the clubs of th country now own their

After years of persistent but frttttleti
endeavor Charle F.vans, Jr., of Edfe

American golf. Not only did the Inimi
table Chick acquire possession of the
coveted amateur title but he also took
unto himself nit the lnurels of the open
cluvmplonshlp. an achievement credited
to no other amateur player tn the hlf
tory of this country. In fact, only one
other amateur In the history of golt
gained such dlatlnotlon, that being John

amateur and open In one year, much to

Mis Stlrlliiar Conquers.
Hardly less lullllant was the year's
performance of Miss Alex .Stirling, the
Atlanta nils who waged such sterling
golf Klie gained the leadership among
the women. In playing to the crown tn
the llelmont Spring classlo Miss Stirling
not only proved that America has a fem
inine golfer worthy of national fame
but sh brought to light the certainty
I that America Is developing experts at
the cime ivlio Moon may outshine the

I Particularly emphntlc were the raptd
' strides of Hobby Jones, Perry Adair,
