The Hunting Log Chronicles of the Run, the Field, Squires and Their Dames. BY NINA CARTER TABB, Staff Correspondent of The Star. AMDEN, S. C.. February 20.— In Camden, S. C„ the whole place is filling up day by day with sportsmen from all over the country, coming to take part in and to see the hunter trials and Washington’s birthday races, given under the auspices of the Camden Hunt Club on February 21 and 22. This two-day event, which takes place in the center of the Carolina horse country, is causing more interest than in any previous years, as the snow and ice in States north of here has stopped sporting activities and all horsemen who can have come here for riding and to hunt with the Camden Hounds. The races on Saturday will take place on the beautiful Springdale course, owned and developed by Harry D. Kirkover, who is chairman of both events. The hunter trials, starting at 1:30 p.m. tomorrow, are to be held on ! the course adjoining the Springdale course. Every one is having such a good time, and I feel fortunate to be here and to be able to tell you a little about everything. One awakes in the morning to the tune of horses’ hoofs trotting on dirt roads—music I have not heard for six weeks, at least in Virginia. Looking from your window, one sees dozens of our best amateur jockeys riding by in turtle-neck sweaters (as no coats are necessary in this Southland). Our ■ gentlemen jockeys are Wintering and training their horses down here for the Spring hunt race meetings, and all the horses look in the very best of condi tion. The town is thronged with young people, who are looking forward eagerly to the week end of sport. Many Virginia hunters are here and their owners will ride them In the hunter trials tomorrow. The hunter trials are divided Into five classes—lightweight hunters, mid dleweight hunters, heavyweight hunt ers, working hunters and hunt team.
