They started off like a whirlwind and had Edmonton beaten 11 to 3 in the first ten minutes, after which they seemed to collapse under the strong pace, and never recovered. There is not a, doubt the local boys were handicapped in playing the same day as their arrival. They left here on Friday afternoon and travelled all night, arriving at Edmonton at the end of the 325-mile Journey very tired. Edmonton of course claims the championship. But the locals are of the opinion that it is only half a championship, for were the Capital hoop without even touching the side and Just to show the fans that it was not a fluke, ha came back a minute later and repeated his performance. Parney and Stevens each scored one, while Dunaworth scored one field basket and the second foul tor Leth-bridge. Irwin scored and made the score 21-16, in favor of Edmonton. Second Easy for Locals. Bdmonion had things pretty much their own way in the second half. John Crosier evidently had been stalling in the first half, for in the second he scored no less than seven baskets, making a total of IS points FOR K.O.

Time and play-either home and home games or a sudden death game on a neutral floor. The wind-up of the 1917-18 season is unsatisfactory to the southern clubs to say the least, and it will be up to the southern group to get busy in time next season and arrange for a basketball governing body for the province. The following account of the Edmonton game from the Edmonton Journal shows what the northerners think of the south-town basketeers: The Edmonton All-Stars now hold! the undisputed basketball champion-j time again, the ball rolled around the hoop and fell out, only to have "Ken" reach it, literally pick it off the basket and start it on the way to the other end. Lethbrldge certainly can boast of the smoothest basketball team in the province, bar none, and it is admitted by the locals that had they been on a larger floor the score would have been different, 'lor owing to the sm�H Y. gym., they could not make their combination work as it should have. The game far surpassed that play ship of Alberta, as the result of Sat-! ed with Calgary recently in this city, urday evening's game, when they de- for if the Edmonton team had played feafed the fast' Lethbrldge team by the class of game they put up against the score of 52-28. j Calgary, they undoubtedly would haVe TLe Y.

Brennan, the Detroit boxer who made his bow to Alberta fans in his bout with Young Ross here, didn't have even a light lunch in his go with Billy Miller of Calgary at Vulcan on Monday afternoon. Miller was hopelessly outclassed and quit in the third -Tound after Brennan had toyed with him in the tirst two frames. Miller claimed he bad busted his hand as his reason for quitting. This boy Brennan Ms a classy young fellow in the ring, and just to shbw he is good enough to be considered a fair match for the beat of them, lie had a wire yesterday to hurry back to Racine, Wis., to battle on April 8th with Eddie McGoorty. the scrappy middleweight who ha3 just returned from Australia. Lethbrldge fans looked over two classy boys this winter when they saw Harrison and Brennan iu action. Young Al. Ross left last night for Calgary, and his address for the time being will be Sarcea Camp. If Ross is still there on May 24th it is posstble a bout may be staged here with a good boy of the Harrison or Brennan Calibre. or organization The Lethbrldge aggregation made a spectacular entrance, by rushing on to the floor in a line, and circling on their end of a gym. with a system and pomp that would rival Yale or Harvard. Lethbridge Begins It. The whistle did not have time to close game these baskets would be a winning asset. Off far the Cowtown. Lethbrldge left yesterday for the Cowtown, where they are scheduled to meet the Calgary quintette this evening. One thing is assured-if they put np as good a game as they did at Edmonton, they will have no echo before P. Irwin had hung up a' difficulty to defeat them, even on the counter by an excellent shot. Duns-worth scored another, after some fast combination play. Edmonton scored their first basket about three minutes later, but Lethbridge rolled in seven more pointB, making the score 11-2 after five minuteB' of play. Up to this point is looked as It Lethbridge were going to have a ' walk-away. They were scoring from all positions and angles. English Starts Something. A quick change of tactics on the part of Edmonton, however, brought the required results. The score was made almost even when Chet English outmanoeuvred bis guard and scored four baskets in succession. This, evidently put Edmonton on their feet, and John Crozier got an inspiration and scored two more. Ken Crosier was Calgary floor, with Calgary officials. The lineup was as follows: Edmonton-J. Crosier, O. Parney, C. English, K. Crozier, N. Stevens. Lethbridge-J. Irwin, V. Spaceman, L. Dunsworth, A. Cane, G. Mc-Killop. M. Dunaworth was substituted tor Cane in the second half. Referee-Valentine. Judge ctf play-W. Murray. MONUMENT FOR SHERIDAN.

ALT* IPS TELLS WHY COBB IS LEADER George Hildebrand, an umpire in the American league, likes to do nothing better than watch Ty Cobb, in a ball game. Next to watching Tyrus Cobb, Hildebrand would sooner talk about him than do anything else. He spends his winters telling stories of Cobb's prowess. One of his stories, which shows Cobb in a typical feat and illustrates why Ty can pull more people through the turnstiles than any athlete that ever live: This occurred in a game at Washington, and Detroit happened to need a run. Cobb got a pass and immediately began jockeying for a lead off first. A quick peg from the pitcher had him napping, and Gancliil, now with the Sox, made a dive to catch him. But Cobb was on his way to second. Gandiil, in his surprise, made a hurry throw that was a bit wide. Mc-Brlde knocked the ball down and It rolled only about ten feet. Cobb dashed for third. McBride's throw hit him on the shoulder, and Ty kept on Hp the plate. The throw had him by 15 feet. Ty never slackened, but slid into the diamond, far from the plate and past Catcher Henry, who was waiting for him. While he was on the ground Ty reached for the plate with his hand, but Henry tagged' him. Hildebrand said a young catcher would have missed him, but Henry stood all over the plate so he could not touch it. At that the play was so close thousands of fan3 were standing up and yelling when O'Laughlin waved Ty out. Ty is always doing something, and that is why he is the biggest drawing card in baseball, according to Hildebrand. Fred Fulton, after h;s recent battle with Frank Moran, declared he had proved his gamenese and his ability to take a punch by allowing Moran to hit him more than 20 times upon the Jaw. But did Fulton really prove himself game, or did he take a foolish chance, and, by pure luck, get away with it? It is, or ought to be, a maxim of the prize ring that the unexpected punch hurts most. If a fighter knows a punch is coming and is set for it he is not apt to. be badly hurt by it. But if he is set for one punch and gets another he Is almost certain to be stung. The punches Fulton took, by his own admission, were expected. He was figuring on them and they came over just the way he expected them. Accordingly, Fulton shook them off like drops of water from an umbrella and escaped unscathed. , But suppose while Fulton had his jaw stuck out inviting Moran's blows the blond Plttsburger had slipped Fred a punch on his elongated slats. Fred would have been very lucky if that punch did not take a lot of fight out of him. Fulton took a chance, and because he was expecting the swats he got away with it. His example, however, hardly could be called a good one for ambitious boxers to follow. It is a dangerous thing to fool with, this showing a crowd how game you can be in the ring. Philadelphia Jack O'Brien, who was a game man himself, said once that ganieness was a form vi insanity. He was not far from right. To deliberately take a beating because you do j not want to quit is not always so much an exhibition of courage as it is of foolishness. Those kind of beatings take too much out of a fighter. Just a few nights ago, at Milwaukee, Bill Brennan, the Chicago scrapper, gave a wonderful exhibition of gameness in his bout with Jack Demp LA JO IE AND DAUBERT MENTIONED IN BIQ DEALS. Napoleon La-joie, the famous slugger and manager of the Toronto club of the International Boston, Apr. 2.-An urgent call for men to man merchant ships was sent out by Henry Howard, director of recruiting of the United States shipping board after a meeting today of the advisory committee, composed of representatives of various mariners end organizations.

The crowd gave BUI full credit for being one of the gamest battlers in the work, but it probably will be quite a while before Brennan has fully recovered from the effects of that walloping.

REAL TEST FOR DEMPSEY. On April ^6 we are to get a real line on the fighting ability of this Jack Dempsey person, says an eastern scribe. When he tangleB up with Miske at St. Paul, Dempsey is going to fight the toughest, light heavyweight in the country. It will give a direct line on Fulton and Dempsey a3 Fulton only a low weeks ago stepped tr,<� same distance with the St. Paul man. There is no excuse in the world for Fulton not beating Miske tar worse than he did with all the heavy ordnance he carried into the ring with him that night, hut he didn't. He fought a witless battle and suffered in prestige from it until he made an other one of his miraculous recoveries by beating Moran. Fulton clearly out-pointed Miske, but there was no reason why he should not have finished his smaller opponent inside of six rounds. % The bout between Dempsey and Miske will �ive the fans of the northwest a line on Dempsey as a boxer and a hitter. He has been keelhauling a group of setups in various ceil' trea until the game was shown up. Miske could knock out any of these setups Dempsey has been showing with. Miske will be outweighed in this fight, but Dempsey will not bring into the ring the enormous extra Inches of arm with which Miske had to contend against Fujlon. Dempsey is not presumed to be us good a boxer as Is Fulton, although he carries a respectable wallop all his own. No matter from what angle the bout is viewed. It looks interesting. Miske' is gaining in weight every' montlt, and is looking bigger every day.. Don't be\ surprised If he goetUjsto the ring against Dempsey weighing around the 190 mark. William is uo longer asast chested youngster. sary that immediate steps be taken to man~ ships so that every available soldier could be transported to the battle front. KILLED IN ACTION Victoria, B.
