The intercollegiate golf tourna.
ment will take place October 25, at
Ardsley-on-the-Hudson. Four and
possibly five colleges will be repre-
sented; they are Yale, Harvard,
Princeton, Columbia, and possibly
the University of Pennsylvania. The
contest this fall will be the third
held by the Intercollegiate Associa-
tion, but it has never before been
held in the fall, it coming last year
on the 15th of May.
Last year Yale won the team match,
defeating Princeton in the finals by
twelve holes to eight, and the Har-
vard team in the final round by
twelve holes to three. The individ-
ual championship was won by J. F.
Curtis of Harvard, who defeated
John Reid, of Yale, in the finals, by
a score of five up and four to play.
The teams are to consist, as here-
tofore, of six men, the result to be
determined by match play in rounds.
In the individual championship there
are to be eighteen holes at medal
play to qualify and the contestants
making the best eight scores to quali-
fy and to decide the event by match
play. The finals will be at thirty-six
holes, eighteen in the morning and
eighteen, if necessary in the after-

have one preliminary yet to be de-

few men have entered the contests
year, but in the law department the
number of entries is even larger than
ever. Owing to the early date of the
preliminaries this year, many men
have not entered who usually are to
be found in the contests, and as a
whole the debates have not been of a
very high quality. It is thought,
however, from now o i the contests
will be more interesting and show
