T. Townsfcnd of White Plains won the contest for the men with a high score of 94 out of 100. McClure's new layout is situated on the concrete road between Pounridge and the Ridge ­ field road and is one of the finest set of traps in this sec ­ tion. It is located on one of the highest hills in the county so that the skyline is perfect for the sport, with no inter ­ vening landscape to disconcert the gunners. New Golf Links for Northern Westchester County A CCURATE statistics show that the reported tremend ­ ous weight advantage held by the Mount Vernon te a m over the White Plains team is far from correct The state ­ ment that Mount Vernon outweighed the Tigers twenty pounds per man dwindles down to an actual ftw-poimd per man advantage in the light of cold figures. The White Plains team averaged slightly over 160 pounds while ths Mount Vernon team averaged exactly 165. In the line, however. Mount Vernon did hold a greater weight ad ­ vantage, but thia, too, ia exactly half of what the report said. White Plains line averaged 169 pounda and Mount Vernon ’ a 169. In (he badffleld White Plain* * held an advantage, which may sur- prtee many. K eeg an . Hayde, Glee* and MsdevelUe averaged 163 while Carldeo. Hagan. Wllkanaon and Ca- dlggn averaged U7. \ The rraeon that Mount Vernon wee able to make capital of it* weight was that they had a more consistently heavy taam. each man being more near the average weight than those or. the White Plain* team In the Une Meant Vernon presented a solid front with no weak spot* due la light men. White Plain* had a spotty line com ­ posed of a ISO pound tackle n*xt to a 1S6 pound guard, and a 110 pound (ackle neat lo a 138 pound end. This, discrepancy In weight make* for a far weaker team, even though there are. heavier men In it than In the opposition.
