Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 1, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta Pag�8 The Lethbridgo PaUy Herald, Friday. April 1,1910. JACK TAIT HAILED AS A WORLD'S CHAMPION Canadian Flyer it Now In Front Row and Coming Fast-Is Greater Than Longboat The wonderful success that has attended the efforts of Jack Tait, the Toronto runner, /this win-ter has proven very pleasing to the followers of Canadian track athletics who have been watching the idevelopment and improvement of Canadian runners during the past few years. Tait has been coming along rajrfdly, and while he is ing" since he was fourteen years of age, and if in seven years he has become an American and Canadian champion, in another twelvemonlh it wIM disappoint everyone of his friends and admirers if he be not a world champion S. O. E. LINE-UP The following is the S. O. E. team selected to meet the Foresters on tills evening, Friday, the kick off taking place at 6.15: Sumner, goal; Farrls and Kirk, backs; Stepilienson, now one of the mo.9t dangerous of mid-1 Hoibertoa and Firth, half backs; die-distance performers in America, he i Palrbrother, Faunch, Farmer, Barber Is far from being at his best, and is | r^J^^^ joyce or Smith, forwards, capable of showing enough improvement in the next year or two ro place mm at the top of the ladder, for he is only a youngster, who is just beginning to develop the necessary strength and stamina for the fasr coui-pany. Tait started on a tour of tht> eastern states last week, winning In Baltimore at the Johns Hopkins university games, when he eatablished a new state record of 4.21 for the miie. He followed this up by establishing a new American indoor record for the mile and a half when he defeated Bon-hag, In New York, Tuesday. New Indoor Record Bonhag is Tail's greatest opponent, and the holder of all the American middle distance'records, iis well many world's marks, and is the one man responsible for Tail's wonderful improvement shown this year, for it needed a man of the New Y'orker's ability to bring out the best that was In the Canadian in open competition. That Tail can defeat Bonhag at a mile and a mile and a half has been de monstrated, while the Flying Dutchman, ten 3'ears Tail's senior, and one of the most brilliant of track performers, is the champion at the two and three-mile route. Jack Tail has done as much to boost Canadian athletics and to advertise Canada as Longboat ever did, and the Canadian's career is far from ended yet. The time is not very far distamt when John wwi be aJbe to go out and trim the uissmgs and the Kiviajts as well as the Bonhags at their own distances, 'lait has been steadily "com- Ballad Of Baseball By John Northern ililliard. When the green is back on the trees, And the mercury mounts in the shade; When the cherry-bloom powders the breeze. And the moss groweth lush in tlit glade; Tls the time when we tire of trade. When even the playhouses p.ill, And we rush from the side oi a maid At the slogan of spring, "Play bail I" We may broil on the bleachers or freeze. In ulsters of flannel arrayed; A fig, more or less, for degrees, ! So long as the game can be played! By the weather we're never dismayed, We're on hand at the umpire's call; Rooters all, we begin to brigade At the slogan of spring, "Play ball!" Lo, the slightest pretext we will seize Leave the work for which we are paid; We ask not of gold nor of fees While tiie fever remains unallayed; 'Tis a passion that must be obeyed; It holds young and old in its thrall; Other pleasures and sports pale and fade At the slogan of spring, "Play ball:" Youth, heed this song 1 have made; Many there be, great and small. Who long, too long, have delayed At the slogan of spring, "Play ball!" Y. M. C. A. TO HAVE FOOTBALL TEAM IN FIELD There was an enthusiastic meeting of young men at the Y. M. C. parlors last evening. It was decided to organize a Y. M. C. A. football club, and to enter tie City League. ^Messrs. H. P. May, E. Poiwer aad F. S. ^Imer were appointed temporary delegates to the City League executive rt was decided to Invite any of the teams in the city to play the Y. M. C. A. a friendly match on the Square at 6.30 on Tuesday evening. G. Collier was appointed as chairman of the committee to round up a Y. M. C. A. team for Tuesday evening's practice match, and any team wishing to arrange a practice match with the Y. U. C. A. club should notify Mr. Collier, care A. Easton and Co. The Y M. C. A. football club has good prospects for a prosperous season, and no doubt will become one j of the favorites in tiie championship contest before the trophies are finally carried off.

Brlscoll will leave for the States after his fight with Robson and get In shape for a bout with Abe Attell on the coast Just before the Jeffries-Johnson battle. By Joltum Bigmytt. Corse Payton, of whom nearly everybody In Brooklyn has heard, lias become a fine little speculator, not only In his line of business, but in otiher ways. He is now doing a little stunt in tihe speculating line on the Jeffries-Johnson glove fussing. 'For some reason best known to himself, he has concluded that the fuss will not .take place either on July 4 or July 5. and has backed his opinion with cash or at least cheques. During arguments on the fight recently he bet Bob Murphy, who should know all about the fight, thai the mill would not take place either on July 4 or July 5, wagering $200 against $1,000 of .Murphy's money, and, what is more, he claims lo have five cheques more made out and certified for IL'OO each that he will wager the same way. These cheques are said to be In the hands of Joe Deasy. 'Wiiat Mr. Payton knows about the fight and the date on which it will take place, if ever, Is his own secret. Probably, having some knowledge of the California climate during July, ihe is willing lo take 5 to 1 that there will be a fog blanket thrown over the Oakland race track bhat day and the day following, which would interrupt the picture-taking business, which. In his opinion, as well as thai of many others. Is the founda,tlon for a fortune for the principals. He has other chances, suoh as accident to either one of the prlnci- TAUT ^JJ'/JP/*'***-' pals, or ovtni (loath, for tihelr is no telling when Jack John-son is going to he dragsed out from ijeneatli his automobile much mussed up, or when the axe which Jeffries uses to chop ihls kindling wood, will fly off the hanrile. and cjiip off an par or give him a clean siiavc. While the probabilities are against Mr. Payton being correct in his judgment, it Is not a bad betting propostlon, as he has the proverbal one chance of winning. What is probably as much In the mind of Mr. Payton a� anything else is to gel himself into the pugilistic llmeliglit by making some extraordinary wagers, at ?200 per wager, to let his friends know that he Is still on earth, and willing to be heard. If he makes the five wagers, which will be about ?1,000 against 15,000, In the aggregate, he will easily get 11,000 worth of free advertising If he loses. At thai he must still be given cre- , ITS TOO BAD HOLUIS/ VAN(SEl,D5Atp/WE ALU LIKED YOU .SO MWOH.* dil for taking a flying chance to win wiiat he considers a fair wager. He Is not doing a bad sroke of business in any event, for, should he happen to win, (he Is $5,000 lo tlhe good, with a stack of good notices to boot. It is said that :\!r. Payton does some extraordinary things at times, but there is onething for which he must be given credit. He turns a lot of his ideas into money. A Baltimore fan has compiled a table of sacrifice flies made in the National League last year, showing a. total of 232. The Giants led with 37. The other clubs in order are : Philadelphia, 36 ; Pittsbura. 34 : Chicago. 33 ; Cincinnati, 31 ; St. Louis. 23 ; Boston, 20, and Brooklyn, 18. WaRiicr made the greatest number- 11. Steinfeldt knocked out 8. while McLean, Devlin, Miller and Beaumont had 7 each. 1 THE BEST CLOTHES ON EARTH Now that's going some, ain't it? but it's a fact!
