Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 5, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD . , . � ., FRIDAY, APRIL 5, 191S "BRINGING UP FATHER" - - - - -  - By G. McManus BASEBALL BOXING RACING hSPORT HOCKEY GOLF BOWLING Fred Fulton, Cinderella Man of the American Prize Rihg; His Rise a Remarkable One (Chicago Tribune! i Fred Fulton, of Minneapolis, might be fittingly termed the' Cinderella Man of American pugilism. He stands today matched to fight Wil-lard for the heavyweight championship of the .world, with forfeits posted and every preliminary formally accomplished. From the junk-heap to �which he has been hurled by public opinion Mike Collins picked him up, dusted him off and started him on his way to a match for the title as successor to a line of champions such as Sullivan. Corbett, Fitzstaunons, Jeffries and Jack Johnson. H is quite a far cry from the long, lean and sometimes hungry plasterer who came to Minneapolis to become a fighter, under the tutelage of Frank Force, five years ago, to the., Fulton of today, with his string of trophy scalps won under the direction of Collins, the Hudson fight promoter who turned manager. Fulton once lost his head and broke away from Collins, going hack to, Force. Legal action resulted in the courts sustain-' ing the Collins contract, and by a coincidence Collins signed the Fulton contract for the Willard fight for the championship of the world just one year from the day from the handing down of the court sustaining ihe Fulton-Collins contract. When Collins took Fulton off the1 dump, his friends laughed at him. Fulton had proved a flivver as a white hope. He had virtually quit to Carl Morris. He had lost his wits and fouled Carciofinl when Carciofini was on one knee and taking the count. He had been knocked out by Al. P�lzerf who later became his sparring partner. He was looked upon as a false alarm with a yellow streak as wide as the entrance to the mammoth cave. Collins predicted that he would run Fulton up to a championship with Willard. "And," said Collins to the writer at that time, "if he meets Willard he will lick him by the time X am ready to match him. I am going to start him off right and lick him." Fulton has done that very thing. Under the guidance of Collins he has whipped everything In sight of known value. He has had his backsets and mado miserable showings. He has stuttered with his gloves when he should have talked right out, but no matter ho\r or what the circumstances he has piled up the most formidable array of records in recent years. They have said that he 'fought on. Mike Collins' nerve," was a "lucky stiff," and a thousand other things, but the record stands for what it is worth, and Fulton , picked out of the discard by Collins, stands today generally hailed as the only man with a chance to flatten Willard. He has whipped all the tough ones. He has demonstrated his gamenegg. Somewhat of a Cinderella man! Collins has returned to the-city and talked in an interesting manner of the meeting at Kansas City. "Alt the wolves in the world were represented by letters, telegrams and whispers to preyent the signing of the articles," said he. "Kearns, working in the in- terests of Dempsey. was moving heaven and earth to prevent the match. Never was Fulton knocked harder and more persistently. But Miller has a mind of his own and ^fter much dickering we reached an agreement. "Fulton is to get $20,000, win, lose or draw. Willard has his own agreement with Miller, who is a millionaire two or three times over. I would say it for a certainty, but I would not be surprised if Willard for his end is to get $100,000 and something like 50 per cent^jf the receipts over that sum. It will be probably the biggest money match ever fought. No one can say where the men will meet. I would venture a guess that it would be in Bliss, Okla., despite the word that the law will intervene, or In Denver where we can go 20 rounds, or in Minneapolis. It it-comes here it would require the building of a big arena, but we are going to build one here anyway. "Fred is through fighting now until July 4. No other battle for him. We are considering ten weeks in vaudw ville, and we can pick up a lot of money in exhibition work' if we go into the vaudeville stuff. I will not work personally with the Minneapolis Boxing Club, but will let Jack Reddy run it for me until we find out where the big bout is to be. "We did remarkably well since leaving here. Taking into account our exhibition dates and the receipts from the various fights, including the Cowler and Moran bouts we knocked down better than $27,000 grosB. "The stories about Cowler nearly having Fred out are gross exaggerations. He hit him and hit him hard but he was never really in distress. Then he buckled in and knocked Cowler out. "And right now and here I'll say, flatly, that by sundown on July 4th Fulton will be the heavyweight champion of the �world. He can whip Willard and will beat him as sure as they fight. He gets 520,000, win, lose or draw.'' jQuite a distance from the fight at Hudson when Fred took the count with the hulking Carl Morris towering above him and then did a wild fandago around the ring after the count? Monthly Handicap, Meda! Play-To Cover Six Months- Start Saturday BEAVER MEAT. Toronto, April 4.-Quite a number of applications for beaver meat have been received by Manager Wright of the municipai abattoir. Between six and seven hundred carcases are expected in Toronto shortly, but up to the present cold weather has interfered with trapping and only seventy-two pounds of meat have been received.

NEITHER MAN HAS Sansom - Anderson Wrestling Match Hangs Fire-The Boxing Bout at Vulcan (Special to the Herald) Vulcan, Mar. 4. - We have been hearing some more talk regarding the proposed wrestling bout between Walter Anderson and Guy Sa'nsom<,H was arranged " to pull this match "off on April 10th, but so far neither man has come forward with the $500.00 which was to be put up. Manager Butler has informed us that Anderson is ready with his money and apparently it is up to Sansom to make the move. The Brcnnan-Mlller Go Last night the big 10-round boxing contest between K. O. Brennan of Detroit, and Billy Miller, Calgary, took place and quite a number turned out to see the fight insflite of the miserable weather:which prevailed. Unfortunately it was a very short bout, owing to the fact that during the third round Miller had the misfortune to strike the wall at the back of the stage and severely bruised his hand. The match would have been a Bplen-did show as it appeared as though the two men were very evenly matched. It would be hard to make, any criticism of either man as they were just warming -up when the sudden ending came. Brennan is a first class boxer and possesses speed, science and a very hard punch. He certainly will give some of the leaders a rare gruelling and bids fair to become a champion. This lad Miller is apparently not far behind, except in weight, compared with Brennan. He is strongly built and possesses a good knowledge of the game in addition to having a very hard punch. �We hope to see these .two lads in the ring again and can assure boxing fans it would be worth going a long way to see. GAME INTERESTING The basketball game between Calgary "V" and Lcthhridge "Y" last Monday was an interesting game to watch, the score always being in a hazardous position for either side even till the final whistle blew. The teams were well matched in weight and height and naturally put up a very even battle.. Tho local boys made a good start and maintained it in the first half. There was some neat, combination plays on both sides, the Lethbridge boys handling the hall most of the time. �*. The second half was featured by exceptionally nice shooting, nearly every player locating the hoop via the long distance route. Hannah, Dingle and Spence did most of the damage, Dingle, making two spectacular shots from mid-field. With a few minutes to go the score was tied up 36-36. The locals set themselves for the final spurt, putting every effort to the attack, securing the winning two baskets in the last few seconds of play. For the locals, Percy Irwin was in good shooting trim, hammering in 7 nice field baskets. L. Dunsworth and Spackman getting 4 field and 'A foul baskets apiece. The lineup and scores were as follows-:: Lethbridfie Calgary Forwards L. Durfsworth l L Spence S V*. Spackman in Hannah 12 Centre P. Irwin 11 Dobson 8 Guards M. Dunsworth 2 Dingle 8 A. Kane ' Morton C. McKillop '  �' ''.'�:. i: Lethhridge 40; Calgary 36. Referee: Brent; umpire: Watt. i TWO GREAT HEAVERS STILL IN THE GAME When the cohorts of John McGraw won the world's series from Connie Mack's Athletics in 1!�05, Leon Ames and Chief Albert Bender were listed among the pitching luminaries of the two clubs. Today, after a lapse of 12 seasons, the same two afe ranked among the stars of the National League. Matty is through, "Miner" Brown and other stars of the day gone, but these two continue their winning ways and are the real veterans of the old league. Since that memorable series when Mathewson won four games, both of these old timers have worn several changes of uniform. Ames has been shunted to the Reds and later to the Cardinals, while Bender passed to the Philadelphia Nationals via the Federal League. Both have been counted out several times, but, like a perennial plant, they come back each spring with enough "stuff" to keep some younger hurler off, the regular staff. It is a strange coincidence ' that the pair, who spent the major portion of their careers in different leagues, should have pitched the same number of games. According to the life-time averages of the National League pitchers, Bender and Ames have toed the plate in 317 contests. Both have compiled creditable averages, but Bender has* the better record of the two. Bender in Right Spot. The Chief has been fortunate in having played the most of his seasons with first-division teams. While with Mack the Athletics were generally fighting for the pennant, and during his two seasons with Pat I Moran, the Phillies have been a first1 division club. Two hundred and six games won and an average of .650, is the proud record, of Bender. He has officiated in 41 shutouts, one no-hit game,; one one-hit game, and numerous contests in which-the.hits allowed were below five. . That his curves were sharp and his speed dazzling is proven by the fact that 1,628 batters have struck out before him. And the old wizard is not through yet. With Alexander gone, Moran is figuring on Bender' to become the mainstay of his  staff this season. The record of Ames, persistently followed for years by the "]inx," is only a few degrees removed from that of Bender. Lon has won 171 contests and lost 146, which gives him a mark of .53!). Since leaving N'ew York, Ames has played with losing clubs. His games were won on pitching merit, since neither the Reds nor CaiJs were teams which gave their hurlers  a large number of runs to work on, but the auburn-haired gentleman has succeeded in turning out one no-hit game, two singfe-hlt contests and 29 shut-outs. His control was not always the best, and in the course of his years he has passed 054 batters to first base. As a strike-out artist he did very well, 1,561 runner3 falling before bis curves. While Ames and Bender hold the i veteran honors, to Grover Cleveland Alexander goes the crown as loader of the National League in games! won. The'great pitcher, recently ac- j quired by the Chicago Cubs, has won j 190 games cut of 278 pitched, which ! gives him (he startling average of. .683 for six full seasons" work In the \ major leagues. In addition to this Alex is one of the few men to ever win 30 games per season in three successive years. By some quip of fate Alexander, the greatest of all present day pitchers, has been denied a no-hit game. Often he has come close to the goal, but was always robbed at the last moment. However, he has turned In five one-hit conflicts, while pitching 60 shut-outs. Free passes are scarce when Alex Is on the mound, and only 55'J pass tickets have been issued by him. Batters swing hard at his offerings, but 1,404 have missed altogether. The Cub has many years beforo him -and it the war does not take him- and it is not hazarding a great deal to say that he will tie the record of Ames and Bender before he retires. Jack Coombs. "Slim" Sallee "Rube" Marquard, Larry Cheney, Jim Vaughn and Jeff Tesrnuu are the other National League pitchers who have worked long and often for their various clubs. They are tho only hurlers in Mr. Tener's league who have won more than 100 games. The others for the most part have been in less than live years and have still to make the* imputations as durable Washington, April 4.-German spies, propagandists and persons making disloyal utterances were denounced in the senate today when an effort was made to rush through a house bill providing penalties of twenty yeaw'lm-prisonment and $10,000 for interference with government bond sales, acts intending to interfere with Uie army draft and disloyal statements. "We have got to do something to catch these scoundrels and spies all over the country." said Senator Overman, of North Carolina. "People are taking the law into their own hands on the ground that congress is not passing necessary laws. We hear reports of mobs everywhere." Senator Lodge declared the bill would "not catch a single spy," as sorting that spies do not do their work publicly or openly make disloyal utterances. German propaganda has been "notoriously conducted and the bill's purpose is to broaden the espionage law," Senator Walsh of Montana said. He said some Federal courts have made "strained constructions" of existing laws and discharged persons who have denounced the president and nation and obstructed the draft and bond subscriptions Former Senator Lafayette Young, of Iowa, told of the organization in his state of the German-American patriotic society which l.e said was doing good work. He declared himself for elimination of the German press and of the German language in schools and churches. "We have more trouble with preachers who preach in German than with any body else," he said. "They are public enemies whether they intend it or not." Federal judges should be given the power to intern enemy aliens, Mr. Young said. EASTER SERVICES (From Our Own Correspondent) Coaldale, Apr. 4.-Ed. Johnson ha3 bought from Thos.
