SROOP SECOND WITH 143
IN RED IJONTRAP SHOOT
Veteran Harrisburg Marksman Is Head
ed Only by Professional—S. S.
Hoffman, of This City, Third Best
Amateur
Red Lion, Pa., May B.—Despite the
cloudy weather prevailing, which had
a tendency to keep away the out-of
town shooter, the first annual registered
target tournament of the Red Lion Gun
Club, held here over the club's traps,
proved a big success. Forty-three de
votees of the target-smashing game
blazing away at the elusive clav tar
gets, thirty-two of whom shot through
the entire program. The high wind
blowing across the traps played havoc
with the flight of the targets, and the
poor light made the targets hard to see.
The program called for a total of
150 targets. J. Mowell Hawkins, of
Baltimore, a trade repreesntative, led
the field a merry clip, smashing 145
out of his quota of 150 "rocks," with
H. Brewster Shoop, the veteran Har
risburg amateur, right on his heels with
two less breaks recorded. Shoop fin
ished high amateur and was awarded
the sterling cup donated by the Red
Lion business men. Earle B. Melrath,
of Philadelphia, the present holder of
the Pennsylvania State Live Bird Chal
lenge Cup, was the runner up, Melrath
smashing 136 targets and won the run
ner up trophy, a large cut glass vase
with sterling mounting, donated by the
Red Lion Gun Club. S. S. Hoffman, of
Harrisburg, was third, and Fred Plum,
of Atlantic City, a member of the S. S.
White Gun Club, of Philadelphia, fin
ished fourth, with 134 and 133 tar
gets scored, respectively. Hoffman and
Plum each received a silver trophy do
nated by the Interstate Association.
Other scores made by Philadelphia tar
get shots were: D. D. Yeagcl, 122;
"McCoy," 119; Vincent Oliver, 114;
William A. Beavans, 114.
DuPont long bars were won by H.
Brewster Shoop and S. 8. Hoffman, of
Harrisburg, Shoop having two runs bet
ter than fifty straight, one of fifty-one
followed by a second run of fifty-four
straight, while Hoffman had a run that
just totaled fifty straight. Hawkins
had a run of fifty-five straight, followed
by an unfinished run of forty-three
straight at the close of the regular pro
gram event.
