Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 12, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE S!x THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD FRIDAY, APRIL 12, 1918 "BRINGING UP FATHER" By G. Mc Manns it is. K " BASEBALL BOXING RACING H5PORT HOCKEY GOLF BOWLING DRAWS $12,500 TO Fielder Jones Draws Largest Stipend, His Annual Cheque Being. $20,000 Excepting^ Fielder Jones of the St. Louis Browns, Miller Muggins is the highest salaried manager in the American league. Huggins is working under a two years' contract. His salary is $12,500 a year, so that when his contract expires a year from next October the Yankees' mite manager will have drawn just 125,00* from the New York Americans. Huggins may have received $6,500 as manager of the Cardinals last jear. f The fact that he built up a winner in St. Louis with practically no money for purchasing star players appealed to Col. Ruppert, who did not haggle oyer Hug's terms when the latter named them. So the Yankees' hustling leader will take down twice as much salary as he received from the Cardinals. Fielder Jones holds an iron-ciad contract with Owner Ball of the Browns, which runs up to Oct. lo. It provides for an annual salary of $20,000. Jones put his signature on this document in 1916, but bis managerial achievements have been rather disappointing. The Browns finished'far down in the race last season and Ball loat a lot of money. Jones, with the advice of Business Manager Robert Quinn, has recon-atructed the team, but nobody dares to predict success. It is believed Hugh Jennings, manager of the Detroit Tigers, has been drawing about $10,000 a year in real money. Perhaps Owner Com-i*key of the White Sox has raised Clarence Rowland's pay to $10,000 as a reward for last year's triumph over the Giants in the world's series. Clark Griffith of the Washington* is anbtber $10,000 man, according to American leaguers. Connie Mack, manager of the Ath club during McGraw's reign since 11)02, these figures are not considered excessive. McGraw reached New-York in 1902 when baseball was dead and the National league was on the verge of bankruptcy. From that time to this the New York club never has lost money, and the National league has prospered wonderfully at the Polo grounds. Gearge Stallings, manager of the Boston Braves, has a contract for $12,500 a year and it will not expire until October, 2f>20, so the gossips declare. Stallings signed with the Braves in 1S13 for less than half that amount, but after his team had won the world's title from the Athletics in 1914 the so-called Miracle Man forced his employers to increase the figures to $10,000. The sale of the Braves by James E. Gaffney to Percy D. Haughton afforded another, opportunity to demand a raise, with i the result that Haughton agreed to' $12,500. Mathewaon Actually Draws $10,000. When Christopher Mathewson wa9 traded to the Cincinnati Reds in 1316 the unofficial news came from Pork-ville that he had signed as manager at a salary of $20,000 a year. But as a matter of fact Matty agreed to accept $10,000, which was big money coneridering that he had no experience as a bench leader. Matty has made good as the Reds' manager and iff) his team should' win" the pennant some day he'd probably demand more salary. But just at present Big Six declares that he is we'll satisfied with nearly |J00 a we*k. As the Giants' greatest pitcher, by the way. Matty never received more than $12,000 a year. Unlike other 3tar boxmen, he didn't believe that it was fair to stick up his employers for more money than he considered he was worth. But Christopfter Mathewson in that respect, stood in a class by hlmself. Salaries of Other National Leaguers. Patrick Moran. it is said, signed to manage the Phillies in 1S15 for not more than $4,000. The Phillies won the pennant that year, finished second in 1916 and 1917. Moran's present contract with the- Philadelphia National league club probably yields at least $8,500 a. year, if not more. Moran Is one of the most capable! team builders in baseball and is worth! all be receives. Wilbert Robinson's' contract with the Brooklyn club in 1916, when the team won the pennant, netted about $9,000, including a $5,000 bonus. Uncle Bobble's salary for the year may exceed $7,500 TAIT TOO ANXIOUS After Mitchell Had Knocked Tait Down, Canadian Champ Failed to Cover The Edmonton Journal's ''Spotting: Periscope'' has had a communication from a friend in Milwaukee aneni the Tait-Mitchell bout, which will be interesting to Lethhridge Fans: Here is some dope from the ringside dn last Friday's bout between Ritchie Mitchell and Clftnie Tait, sent th Periscope by Joe Carr, who many Edmontonians will remember when he worked for Bob" and Jim Noble. Joe Carr. who ran a boxing club in Cobalt before coming to .Edmonton, is now in charge of a cafe in Milwaukee and was in Tait's corner last Friday. He says: "I am afraid Clonie does not push himself ahead enough. 1 took him up and introduced lum to Tommy Andrew?, the sporting editor, and Andrews promised to run his cut but Tait never took the trouble to return with the photograph. Tait told me he was weighing 137 pounds when he first came here but today (April �) at 3:00 p.m.. when he weighed in. he tipped the scales nt 141 pounds. Mitchell's weight was 131. You know some fighters do not like to train any too well. latics, is a half owner of the club's j �,�* �},9  exact amount cannot be stock and probably receives as much learned. Fred Mitchell of the Cubs as Jennings, Rowland and Griffith. If Mack has not invested practically all of his baseball earnings in the Athletics he might 'have accepted Frank J. Farrell's offer of $25,000 a year to handle the Yankees, made just before Frank Chance was engaged at $20,000 per annum in 1913. Edward Barrow, the new manager of the Boston Red Sox, may get aa , much as $7,500 tor his services, while Lee Fohl, the Clevelands' field marshal], is said to be under contract for $6,000 a year. Is Huggins worth the money that Col. Ruppert has contracted to pay liim? Smart baseball men will answer this query in the affirmative. McGraw Leads Them All With $30,000. John J. McGraw tops the list of high salaried managers. K is taken for granted that his contract with the owners of the Giants, which has four years to run, calls for a aalary of $10,000. Considering the prosperity of the Sew York National league and Jack Hendricks, the new manager of the St. Louis Cardinals, are said to hold $7,500 contracts, while Hugo Besdek, who has yet to win his spurs as leader of the Pirates, probably will extract $6,000 from Barney Dreyfuss' strong box for trying to pull his team out of Gov. Tener's cellar. * * * HEAVYWEIGHT MATCH ON * ? ST. PAUL BALL GROUND ? * St. Paul, April 11.-Repre- >  seutatives of Colonel J. C. Mil- >  Fulton boxing match, confer- > ? red with John W.

That is. the shock-absorberB are built into the springs. No other devices need be put on afterwards. Furthermore, for over two years NOT A SINGLE mitchell SPRING has BEEN BROKEN. Think of that. NOT one although between forty-five and fifty thousand cars have been equipped with these springs. Speaking of the bout Joe says: "Just a few lines to let yon know I saw the Tait-Mitchell fight tonight. It was a good fight -up to the eighth round when Mitchell caught Tait on the jaw and put liim down with his right for the count of eight. When Clonie got up, instead of squaring off, he put his hands out to shake with Ritchie, being a little dazed yet from the knockdown, but Mitchell was not shaking hands at this juncture, and put the Canadian to the mat again with a straight left. Clonie intended to take the second count, aB was hi3 right, ]iut the referee stopped the bout and ordered Mitchell to his corner as the winner. Tait got right to hi3 feet and said afterwards he thought the referee should have at least given- him a count. The first and second rounds were even. Tait had the third and the fourth and fifth were even. The sixth was'Mitchell's, and the seventh was even. Hereafter Tait will be somewhat leary about shaking hands with an opponent after being knocked down. Clonie is quite too polite. "Kid" Maxwell, who has just, returned from Chicago, is a great admirer of Jack Dempsey. "Dempsey can take on Wiliard and Fulton on the same night and beat them both," says Maxwell, who has known the Salt Lake scrapper a long time. CARPENTIER WILL NOT COME TO THIS SIDE. Bijou Motor Parlors Limited fKe house of service fifth street south LETHBRIDQE, ALTA, Paris, April 12-Georges Carpen-tier, the champion French heavyweight pugilist, says that he has finally given up all thought of going to the United States to box, and that he will devote the time during the period of his convalescence to teaching physical culture and boxing at the normal gymnastic school in Toin-ville. Carpentier said today that he hoped that he eventually would be able to return to hi3 aviation work when he has entirely recovered from the injuries to his head received in a fall in an airplanne.

Score at half time was 18-15 in favor of the-locals, but Raymond took an earft lead baskets. M. Gillies: and M, Winters a!* had something to do with the scoring. The Whites' guards, M. Hyssop and A.
