Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 4, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGB DAILY HERALD THURSDAY, APRIL 4. 1018 ,*� BRINGING UP FATHER" By G. McManus BASEBALL BOXING RACING 1-SPORT- HOCKEY GOLF BOWLING Fine New Greens For the Golfers .-*- -- -- Work Now Under Way At Links Team Practically Rebuilt With-in Past War-Old Paces Are Missing Now that winter lias lathed forth hir, last kick and subsided in the face of spring'* drive the golfers ar# burnishing up their Instruments of warfare and getting ready to go after the same with a vengennc. These bright sunny days get under the golfer's hid�, and he is waiting for the word "go" It will therefore be pleasing news to the fans to know that two men with team are busy this nr?k putting the course In shape. The putting greens are receiving particular attention this year. Sand hi being hauled from the river bottom and each green is being treated to a coat of sand raized with California crude oil. This when rolled will form a putting green as smooth as could be secured anywhere, it will not blow, and can always be kept In condition This will remove one of the great**! objections there was last year to the course. The fairway* are also being put in good shape, and It is possible some bunkering will be done later. All of which takes mouey. so Secretary Tom Oalaad {a taking this method of appraising members of the fact that 1918 dues are now pay-1 them when they trot onto the field at able. They have been set thia year at $10 for old members. 15 for nov-1 home tor the firtit time this season. Ices and 13 for ladlea. It is the aim of the club to secure a membership I Between mid season. 1S17. and the of at least 150 this year, which will provide sufficient funds to- put the present time the Browns have lost all course in very fair shape. So a call on Mr. Oxland will now be in order. ! of the regular outfielders who were Arrangements are being made for a aaatch thia week-end. Details will, with the team last year, not to men-be announced later. I Hon the substitute fielders Most of 1 the infielders who held regular meal BALL TEAM ALMOST NYw York-When it comes to rebuilding a ball club the owners of the St. Louis Browns have all records shattered. Within less than a year's time the Brown* as they stood last August have been transformed to such an extent that St. Louis fans will not know BEST SHORTSTOP St. Louis Star Leads Contemporaries in Hitting; Chapman is Second I age of .281 is not to be sneezed a: for ! a shortstop, and that Is what Bush hit last year. It was bis best hitting year since he broke into the big show and, although be is a veteran, he deserve* rank among the topnotchers. Artie Fletcher, another veteran, celebrated for hla baseball ability in a mental as well as a mechanical way. Is rated fourth. Fletcher is a consistently good shortstop, who seldom tickets and part of the catching staff� are missing. I hast August the Brownie owners! made a deal with Joe Tinker of the Columbus club for Pitcher Lowder- ' milk, Infie'.der Gerbec and Outfielder j Detnniitt. From that time on trades t and sales followed rapidly and Field-1 er Jones took a strange bunch, of j players to Dixie this spring. i With Eddie Plank traded to the Yanks, Bob Groom sold to Cleveland of Brooklyn had a chance to secure the services of Pitcher Fred Toney. Colonel Ebbets, however, would not give Fred a living wage. So the Reds grabbed him. and today Tonsy If rated next to Alexander in the list of great National league right-handed pitchers. Two years ago Charley Hsrsog came to the end of his string ns manager of the Reds. Herrmann sat about to make a trade for the Marjr-lander that would add to the Cincinnati playing strength and bring them a new leader as well. He started dickering for Mathew-son with the Oiants. McGraw waa willing to make the swap. Matty waa ready to try his hand at the managerial game. The Reds, however, asked for a player or two. So John Joseph McGraw threw in Eddie Roush and Bill McKechnle to complete the deal. Roush had been bought early in the spring when it looked as if Davy Robertson might not be able to play with the Giants. McGraw knew he was a SlumI man. but didn't know how good. If he knew Roush's real value It is hardly possible that he would have given him in even exchange for Her zog. Roush did not set the league on fire in 1D16. although he outhit Benny Kuuff. La�t season, however, Edward struck his stride and led the National league in batting. HERZOQ QETr CHASED EARLY. Not Allowed to Train With delphla Nationals. Phils changes from year to year.

The Rabbit Is a highly polish- rooting for Belt Oallia, secured from New Yorla, April 4-Good shortstops are Just about as scarce as coal. There is never a spring training season that passes which does not see tram two to a half doien big league managers tinkering with shortstop recruits, for the good ones do not bloom out very often. When a new shorutop of first-class big league calibre does spring up he ais generally a bear, and such is the-case with Rogers Hornsby of the St. Loais Cardinals, who stands out as the most valuable shortatopper in the big show today. Hornsby is rated ns the moat valuable short grass performer, because unlike a majority of the players in his position, he can hammer the skin off the ball. He baa not proved himself to be the most finished fielder in the business, but he ranks high among i them, and he is juil at the top of his' career. Hornsby Lsads. In classing the shortstops as they stand today, Hornsby is placed at the head; of the column, and second to him comes Ray Chapman of the'Indians. Chapman is a great fielder, a clever base- runner, and a good, consistent hitter. With Hornsby, he was the only shortstop to hit better than .300 last season, and Ty Cobb alone stole more buses, which is saying some thing for Chapman as a valuable performer. Third on the mythical list comes Ownle Rush of the Tigers Bush for a number of years has been the most consistent scorer of runs in either' league. His ability as a fielder has always beeu a strong point In his favor and he is a good base runner and a dangerous hitter. A batting aver- ed fielder and a wonderful workman j around the bag. Roger Pecklapaugh of the Yankees; is awarded sixth place in the list as > we have rated the plnyera. with Dave: Bancroft seventh. Everett Scott eighth and Witt or the Athletics ninth. Tbe latter player is a comer. Scott, i a great fielder, is not a terrific hit- J ter. Hit .Ml average last season waa his best stnee breaking in. TRAINING CAMP RESULTS Team- R. H. E.

Not that the Browning team did not do splendid work, for their playing was good, and the visitors were welcomed by both Raymond and Cardston friends, the heavy shouting to the contrary, notwithstanding.

LAND SALES IN T Taber, April -4.-Crop prospects never seemed better than they do at present. Pot holes are all full of water and the ground is thoroughly soaked. Many coal mines hereabouts are running stronger than ever before and the best coal Is raised to $4.60 per ton. There never seemed such demand for farm land as at present.
