PETERSON'S 74 LEADS NEW ENGLAND GOLFERS
Freshman Ace Leads Dartmouth Man by One Stroke To Capture New England Intercollegiate Title
With a strong wind sweeping the course and a 75 already posted which had withstood the attacks of the collegiate golf stars during most of the day, Ed Peterson, Freshman ace and Massachusetts Junior Golf Champion, blazed over the last five holes of the Oakley course in even par yesterday and won the New England intercollegiate Golf Championship with a 74. Wilfred Crossley '36 was the only other Crimson entrant to break 80 and scored a 78 to capture fifth place.
Peterson's play is noteworthy because he was naturally under a nervous strain, competing against the 75 already chalked up by Chester Birch, captain of the Dartmouth team.
Approximately 100 men competed for the Frank E. Whitcher cup over the Oakley layout. Of the rest of the Harvard men competing, Mel Heath and Bob Hunter fared the best, each posting an 80.
