Chandler Egan, who was golfing in the days of the hold guttee ball and winning amateur championships a quarter of a century ago, was pitted against Dr. O. F. Williams, the cocky Port- land dentist, one of the ablest and most aggressive players of the Northwest.

A. tourney at the Pomonock Club, Flushing, yester ­ day. Not only did Di Buono get away to a flying start to eliminate Bobby Cruickshank, the medalist; 4 and 8, by ginning the first five holes of their match, but in tHe sec­ ond round Di Buono also opposed his coworker at Bonnie Briar, Tom Creavy and, ahooting a 83 over the first nine, two under par, eventually won the match by 4 and 8. This was not the only interesting match, however. Johnny Farrell, national open champion only a year ago, had qnite a battle on his hands in the second round when he had to go twenty holes before he defeated Fred Novak 6f St Andrews, after he appeared to have the match well in hand over the first nine. Then there wu Tony Man.ro, un-* Winner of Match Will Meet Donovan For Westchester County Title; Bassford Is Beaten by Moore. final round of th.

The left-handed play ­ er wu a puzzle, but after a closely contested first act. Donovan found the key and ecored by his greater consistency and drives which held power besides accuracy.
