Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 18, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta �Ar,E SIX "BRINGING UP FATHER' THT: LtTnBRfDGE DAILY HERALD, THtinSDAY. APRIL 18, 1918 By G. McManus iSouthern Alberta Ball League Launched At Vulcan Meeting (Special to the Herald) Vulcan, April 16.-A meeting of the baseball enthusiasts took place in Vulcan last Saturday to make arrangements for the coming season and representatives from the Champicn, Stavely and Lomond districts were present. It was hoped that representatives from Caleary. Lethbridge and Car-'^m*ng*y would also be present bur as , these places did not show up we pre very good combination and we were, as a good many know, the champions of the S.P.A. tournament, which was held in Calgary during last July. The following are the officers for the season: President, A. G. Spooner: Sec-Treasurer, a. M. Trail; Player Manager, "Shorty" Grey: Committee, Messrs. George Todd, G. Ij. Ecker and O. h. McPherson. At the previous meetings one or two of the citizens seemed to be op sumed that they could not see their ] posed to the Idea of forming a semi-professional ball team, and from what one can judge it came from the fact that, owing to the war, money should not be wasted on sport when there were so many demands on the people for the brave boys at the front. Lloyd-G�orge has stated on several occasiqtos that sport was needed more today than at any time before and that it helped to take that morbid and depressing attitude out of the minds of the people which is in itself enough to clear the minds of those who still adhere to the principles of "Xo Sport." The new league will be known as the Southcrj Alberta Baseball league. t way clear to join in the league. So far enthusiasm has been the key-I note of the meetings and we are all 1 hoping that the coming season will be | (a very successful one. The officers of the Vulcan club Ji were appointed some time ago and IJ we are congratulating ourselves on the fact that we have got together a ui very able body of men who are pre-" pared to give the public the best line-up of ball players it is possible to get and we understand that there will be some extra special men an ' hand when the umpire calls "Play Ball' on .Alay I'lind.

E FOR HEAVY BAIILE Cioi. Miller to Decide This Week Where Fulton and Willard Will Meet; Will Not Hold it Against State Laws (By L. R. Blanohard.) j Chicago, April 17.-Colonel .1. C. j Miller, newest big league fight pro-1 snoter. eipects to announce the loca-,'tlon of the July 4 Jess Willard-Fred j Fulton championsliip cambat next week. Tonight, having cleared away � much of the telegraphic and postal ' rubbish accumulated since he arranged the match and called for bids, be declared he was near a decision. Afiller, will begin ."NIonday the track-. iing down of some recent offers and (later will make a visit to a pair of ; promising prospects. But that activity will be largely formal, ^^^lether the ! bout will go to -some $1.50,000 plunger or will be run exclusively by the colonel also remains a my-stery for the present. Colonel Not Worried. Though new to the promoting game. Miller is not dismayed by the sudden rain of verbal uppercuts and hooks dellversd him by state and city offi-; ciala who have rushed out with state-. ments that the big tight can't be held in their bailiwicks. "I never asked the governor of j Colorada, or New Mexico, or Nevada, ; to let me stage the fight in their states," the colonel said tonight. "My contract with Willard and Fulton says the match will be conducted according to the law of the state in which it is held. States that haven't any boxing laws need apply. This fight will be held where there is a law. If i were in the saloon business I would surely not' set up a saloon in a dry state. Two Sides to a Law. "And. say. it looks to me as if sffme o� those officials would be violating the law if they didn't allow the match when they have state laws providing for running such entertainments." The suggestion of Governor Gunter, of Colorada, that the heavies stage their fight in Berlin as a battle royal with the Kaiser's sons, brought forth a gurgle from the colonel. 'We might do that," he said, "if the governor were to go along as referee and to handle the Kaiser it the old boy gets rougfb." Jess wniard's old wail of not finding sizeable sparring partners is heard these days. The champion trots four A SLOGGING m With so gifted .1 group of slugger.s as Ping Bodie.Frank Baker. Wallie Pipp and Derrill Pratt now gathered on the Yanks' payroll.Miller Huggins, the team's new luauager, believes the Yanks will be right out in front this season, so far as batting goes at least. Last season the Yanks enjoyed the experience of being the league's worst hitters. They were at the Coot of the figure column with an average at bat of .2:18. The team's ber,t batter, Frank Baker, hit only .292. and though the pitchers did their best all , through the race and dialled up a very or five miles in the forenoon and \ fair class of pitching, they were so boxes a few rounds after lunch. While '' handicapped with the team's weak-Jeas is confident the battle will be a i ness at bat that their twirling availed financial success he is not being care- the team little. less, apparently, of the result. Puffing Miller Huggin's chief problem in some after a few rounds, he confided taking over the supervision of the "it's too early to tell whether I can team has been the strengthening of get back Into shape or not." it at bat. and to this end he hiu; .___I)ioked off Derrill Pratt and Ping ' Bodie.

This is probably due to the fact that French reinforcements are coming into the line, but there is still auxiely as to when General Foch will make! the decisive stroke now that the llrl- j tish have stood tour weeks of ham- i merlng by the immense German reserves, estimated at 420,000 men, in a fashion which led the French writers to describe the British armies as the "wing of sacrifice." Experts do not endorse the opinion advanced in seme quarters that the advance, critical in the northern theatre, has been definitely checked. It is agreed that the Germans have not obtained the decisive result aimed at, thanks to the extreme stubbornness o� the British resistance. The battle, in fact, appears to have been following the course of the great series of German thrusts of October, 1914, which ended in Ypres and failure for the enemy. There was then no allied reserve. That reserve now e.\Ists and has not yet been used. There probably will be continuous fluctuations in the northern area for some time to come, but the salient fact of the fighting is the staying power of the British soldier. He has withstood the severest tests for a month. And the frequency wherewith the enemy has been repulsed at various points, and is now being counterattacked, is the healthiest sign. tion or circulation of any such publf cation containing matter in the Judgment of the secretary of state of Canada, printed or published in contravention hereof, shall be seized and the premises whore the �ame are printed or published may be closed indefinitely or for such period as the secretary of state of Canada may direct.

A Horrible Dream With the British Army In France, April 18.-It is difficult for one in the Dritjsli war zone to adjust himself to the new conditions liere. It spreading German blight across the al! seems like a horrid dream-this cultivated plains of Flanders with their ancient plcturesaue villages. H is but little more than a week since one was free to motor quiet along highways leading through .Mor-ville, Ballleul and a score of other nearby places, whicli never lost their charms. Then peaceful farm lands lay freshly turned ready for the spring crops. The battle linos were not far to the eastward, but death and destruction seemed remote with walls of khaki clad men guarding the land. Little lads stood at attention by the roadside and saluted as the motors passed, and old men and women beamed welcome from the doors of their cottages. Within a few days all this has been changed. The plague of war has de.'*cended on the countryside. Now one meets his civilian friends-the little folk and the aged-from many hamlets making their way sadly { back along the broad highway leading westward from the tide of invasion which is driving them from all they hold dear. They look back on the rolling fields cannon vomit volcanic fire. It is 3 living hell. It is a part of heretofoni untouclicd Flanders going the way of the devastated regions of the Sbmmn and so the gentle peasant folk stand and look or wander on. As they gi) they cannot comprohond It. Its aw fulness has numbed their brains. Sad Spectacle Tho correspondent found a llttla family group crouching beneath hviKo British howitzers hold In reserve. Their eyes were fastened on tha mounting columns of smoke which rose from the village whence they came. There were no tears and no words but the expression on their faces was like that of one Just condemned to die. Why they stopped beside the great guns was unexplained. Possibly it was because it gave them a sense of protection from dangers out beyond. .Many of the refugees know only In a general way whither they go: they are following the lead of military guides like sheep fleeing from a storm. A few cherished belongings are all they carry with them, and they cling to these desperately aa their Inst remaining possessions. Double Terror Hundreds of Flemish homes hava been shorn of their protectors who have been called to the French colors, and for those It is a time of double terror. Some of the peasants, indeed, clung to their cottages amidst the crashing of shells until the soldiers led them away. Some have died by their own hearths before they could be removed. There were many pitiful cases of! homes in which there were bed-ridden invalids, whom their friends had no means of removing without help from the soldiers. Pitiful Cases It was only yesterday that a British official photographer, who was recording tht� history of the war on his films, discovered an helpless paralytic lying in a house which had already been partly wrecked by shells. The invalid had no relatives and hia friends, who had looked after him, were' dead or cut off from him. So, the photographer, with the assistanco of a soldier, carried the man to safety though their road lay thnjugh what might have been a horrible death at any moment. This is one incident among many. Many times there la no way of saving valuables of bulk In towns which came first under the fire of the German troops. Rellca and treasures representing the savinga of years, have been abandoned to the flames and plunderers. Many things have been deliberately destroyed by their owners in order that the Germans might not get them.
