Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 10, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD WEDNESDAY, APRIL 10, 1918 J. .., - �' -h----1-�--"--'j---------im^mLJui � i----------m---- . ���� , i , , I Hi ii. r!uiujuv-jUuU-j--1-.---' in "BRINGING UP FATHER" - - - * - - - By G. McManus BASEBALL BOXING RACING SPORT HOCKEY GOLF BOWLING Harrison-McGoorty Go Set Back Boob Fighter Cut Chicagoan's Lip Some time ago the Herald stated that Phil Harrison was to fight Eddie McGoorty. the noted middleweight, about April 2nd. The fans have been wondering why the match failed to come off, but Harrison's friend Kid Maxwell, the man who was instrumental in bringing the Chicago battler here for a scrap with Al Ross, has returned, and brings the reason which is best explained in the following from the pen of Kd. Smith in the Chicago American: , It may not be generally known, but it's a Tact, nevertheless, that a large percentage of the injuries and hurts suffered by boxers come through work in the gymnasium, and not as a result of actual encounters in the ring with regular opponents. Most of the tin ears, the bruised noses, the cut eyebrows and the injured hands come right out of the gymnasium. The other day Phil Harrison, star West Side middleweight, was jnst about to finish his training work for the day. He had worked hard and was winding up with eight rounds of boxing with a couple of big fellows. He was for calling it a day's labor when a little fellow, a "chump," as far as the ring is concerned, stepped tjp and asked Phi! to give him a couple of short rounds. Though tired and willing to leave off. Phil obliged the kid. Inside of a minute or so the little fellow had butted Phil in the mouth, opening a cut that required four stitches. Further, it was sufficient cause for calling off a rather important match at Racine between Harrison and Eddie McGoorty, this being tabbed as McGoorty's first ring appearance for j months. It was'-a hard blow to the i Harrison party and his managers, I Lewis and Walsh, though the match, they say, is only postponed for a couple of weeks. from his protege. Clonie Tait. the lightweight champion of Canada, who was declared knocked out in the eighth round of his battle with Ritchie Mitchell in Milwaukee the other night. "According to Tait he really should have won the match, but the local favorite stuff was expensive. Here is the wire: "Referee unfairly stops fight in the eighth round. Win up until then, but got careless and he lands lucky punch. Got up immediately, smiling, but he sees chance to award decision to local favorite. Will send you write-ups immediately. We are having return match. Will stay here for a while. , CLONIE TAIT." MATTY TEACHES E BASEBALL STUFF BRENMAN LASTED This brings to mind the horror Joe Gans, former lightweight champion, and as game a man as we ever had, showed when facing a "sucker" in the ring. Joe hated to box them and dodged whenever he could. He had some strong ideas on the subject, too, that he used to outline to his friends. "Give me a champion any time in preference to the fellow we generally designate as a "sucker," Gans used to say. "I like to box and like to make money at the game, but deliver me from the wild men you meet around. The "sucker" is apt to swing one over from the fioor that will crack your chin or break an arm for you. The champion'may out-box you, but you know all the time just how he is going to proceed about it." Maxwell states that Harrison and McGoorty are billed to fight on April 28th, and Max thinks the boy who created such a furore here wiil make the famous McGoorty step every inch of the way. And now comes Clonie Tait's alibi. The Calgary Albertan gives Tait's side of it this way: "Sergt. "Kid" Scaler, back from the front and who is opening a boxing class in Calgary, has received a wire WITHUW'GOORTY Racine, W!�. April 8.-Eddie McCoorty, Oshkoth, Wis., making his first appearance in the ring since his return from Australia, knocked out Frankie Brennan, of Detroit, in the seoond round of a scheduled ten-round bout. Brennan was knocked down twice in the first round. The men are middle-weights. NIMRODS PLEASED BAN IS LIFTED Prairie Chicken Should be Quite Numerous by the Coming November Local hunters will be tickled over the action of the legislature in lifting the ban on prairie-chicken shooting for the month of November, 1918. At the last session of the legislature it will -be remembered, the chicken season was closed for two years. However It was decided that, owing to the great increase in the number of chicken last season, sportsmen should be given a chance at them for a month next fall. Last year was particularly dry during May, June and July, and resulted in a very fine breeding season for chicken. Those who did any duck shooting in the chicken districts can attest this fact. By next fall the numbers ought to be greatly increased, and the lifting of the ban will help keep down the H.C. of L. provided ammunition doesn't soar too high (luring the summer. In discussing the young player who goes ;:.) to the major leagues Christy Mathevt'son, former star pitcher and now manager of the Cincinnati team, has the following to say: "Several years ago a big league manager, who has since passed out of the big show, brought down a s'orm of criticism on his head by the statement that he did not believe in teaching baseball to the young players who came tip from the minors. "It seems that this remark was prompted by the discussion at the training camp one night of the particular fault of a certain recruit who was getting a tryout. This player, an outfielder, was quite a promising young man. He could run and field and hit, but 4ie could not run bases. He seemed to become bewildered when he reached first base, and he could not slide to save his life. ''Of course, a fault like that would keep him off the club, no matter if he did have lots of promise in other ways, unless that fault could be corrected. But it seemed that this ought to be j easily remedied, so some one sug-| | gested that he be taught ho night, for holding wi|.ln one* hand and hitting with the other. In the first and second rounds, Cllne knocked Bloom down with heavy swings to thej jaw. RAYMOND BASKETERS �9> HERE TOMORROW > --  Tomorrow night'n game will  close the basketball season 4� this year.
