Carman-gay, Stavsty, Lomond and Lath-bridge will meet at Vulcan to discuss the formation of a Southern Alberta league. ( To date Lethbridge fane haven't thought much about baseball, If a hard to gat a line on the available material and still harder to find anyone in a position to handle a team. However a few of the fane have decided that a meeting should be held to thresh out the question, a* on Friday evening at eight oc'block the bogs are asked to foregather et the Herald office to talk It over. There la one thing, Lethbridge will -have a team this. summer. but whether it will be purely, local or whether a smattering of paid playera will be brought in is another question. It is a foregone conclusion that if Lethbridge goea into a league with Vulcan and the other towns along ths line, a good battery will have to be secured. The other teams are out after playera now. But Lethbridge will have a ball club and the big reaeon is daylight eaving and the need of a little' recreation. Evening games will be easy under fafct time. Starting at �:46 (old time 0:45) the game will be over and the crowd away before sundown. 8o no matter what the decision as regards the league the fans will see aame goad ball games here this summer. TIGERS' ROSIER Decide to Carry Joseph As Well Tyras This Season as Waxahacbie,' Texas, April 11.- Hugbie Jennings has definitely decided to retain Joe Cobb on the Tiger roster, for a part of the season at least, and the Detroit team will now have two Cobbs as attractions, instead of one. It is quite a jump for a youngster, to come from a Class D league to the majors, but the former Blue Ridge leaguer has turned the trick. In size Joseph id much smaller than Tyrus, but in the bush he wielded a bat in the same style as his more famous namesake. The fore part of last season young Cobb was with a factory team in Eastern Pennsylvania. Along towards the fag end of the' season the manager of the Cumberland team Of the Blue Ridge league needed a catcher, so he signed Cobb. Although the' kid only caught in a few games, he slugged the ball ,___:ow Collars FOR SPRING CASCO-2V*m.

Joe's mechanical work is all that could be asked of a catcher with no more experience, and it has so impressed Jennings that he is confident that the boy has the makings of a big-league catcher. He handles bis pitchers well, and has a rifle peg to the bases. Naturally he does not have the knowledge of the finer points of the game that are possessed by men coming from the Association, or like leagues. ThiE, how-, ever, will be his chief duty this srfm-mer, and if. he proves an apt pupil he will get his chance the following year. The youngster is of Slavic origin, and what'his name was in the original tongue one can only surmise. When Tyrus reported to the team, one of the first things he asked was which fellow w�b Cobb. The presence of the two will likely proves an added' attraction during the early part of the season, and they will furnish many features to the Writers in other cities. Big Crowd Will Be Out To See Old Rivals Clash-Dance After Basketball fans will have their last opportunity to see a game this season tonight when Raymond again invadds.
