Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 27, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAfrE SIX. . SATURDAY. APRIL 27, 19J( "BRINGING UP FATHER" By G. McMarius _ COME HERE HOW M^NY TINES OO �HWF TO C^Ll 'too y CftUL>foU-� VV^NT "HtlO TO CONE AT BASEBALL BOXING RACING SPORT HOCKEY GOLF BOWLING Harrison Holds McGoorty to Draw .-- . -- ' -'>- Oshkosh Battler Could not Win Racine, Wis., April 26.-Eddie McGoorty of Osiilcosli, Wis., and Phil Harrison, fought ten rounds to a draw, according to newspaper critics at the ringside. The men weighed 160 pounds each. The above wjll be food for the fans of Ijothbridge and Southern Alberta. How good is this man Harrison? That's the question tbe fans have been asking-ever since Harrison blew into Lethbridge and lowered Gunner AI Ross' colors in the greatest ten round mill ever staged ^in'the province. Harrison's draw ' last night wiUi Eddie McGoorty. the Oshkosli ariddleweight, is the answer. McGoorty returned a f�w weeks ago from a tour of Australia, and mapped out a series of bouts, by -wlntiinK wliicli he hoped to plaic hiaiself at tlie liead of the middleweight division before he weiit into one of the army carar-s to fight for Uncle Sara. Phil' Harri.sbii of Chicago was to be j his first victim, hut owing to a split: j Up. Harrl.-i:on had to have the match I postponed. Prankie Brennan, who 1 fought ftosB to B draw . here, was i picked as a substitute, but the Detroit. ! battler lasted only two rounds. Har-' j rison however showed that what lid.i White told the local club was true,; that Harrison was one of the best in ! the middleweight division. McGoorty; Is intomationally recognized as one; of the best in the business. Harrison has proven that he is just as good, which means that the Leth-brldge fans have had the pleasure of seeing one of the niftiest in the business in action in this city. 'SIRANGIER'LEWIS lELLSHOWHEGOT OEADLy HEAOiOCK Adopted .Viselike Grip from F. Beel, But It Is So Cruel Opponents Have Barred It Every- wrestler, no matter hoir adept he may be with the many grips of the game, always iias one coup d'etat. Some of these holds are more famous than the men who perfected them; such as the strangle, hammer-lock, toe-hold, scissors, etc. Probably no hold has caused so much comment dn years a-s the vicious head-lock employed by "Strang-ler" Ed. Lewis. This vice-like grip Is so cruel and severe that the other wrestlers have attempted � ;to bar the hold as an illegal stranglo hold. In fact, they Jisve succeeded to a certain extent in forapelling Lewis to compete without it s'inct he made; Wladek Zb.vszko unconsciou.s with it fln a recent tournaaient in New Yorlc. However, Lewis states that he will never compete wi'hout it as he feejs it is an unjast discrimination.against him. The big Keiititckian explains the hold as follows: BASEBALL RESULTS AMERICAN Won.

Carney.) The trapshootin^ calendar ' offers, something new this year in the "old timers' ", shoots. 'These "old-timers' " shoots wii\ be staged by the gun clubs of this broad land during the months of May and June, and will in a vifiy take the place of the Beginners' Day shoots which -.vere so siiccessfuUy staged the past two years. ' . The purpose of' the old-timers' shoots is to get together at least once each year the "old-time" trapshoot-ers,'and as many others as care to attend, and hold a shoot in honor of the_.vetei:ani5. It is. a reunion event which deserves to be?encouraged. * An "old-timer" doesn't necessarily mean an old man. The definition of an old-timer in traP|pbooting is a pe|-soh. who has been .shooting, at the traps for fifteen years or more. Veterans in Every Club. Every gun club and every locality where there ha.s ever been a gun club have their "old-time' frapshooters- pitjncers of the clay/target game, veterans of the best 'Of outdoor pastimes.  .For several years ."old-timers'" shoots have been staged by a number of clubs, and have proven very successful-and the success of these shoots prompted the idea of making the "old-timers'-" shoots a natioiial prbposit'ioru \yjie,thei- tlie slioots; will be handicap'eyentji is a raattfer of,the clubs, conducting same to decide:* The con-' tegtants are .to sliogt ftt,50^. taFfieU-Bvery entrant In the""various shoots will receive a bronze "oili|timers' shoot" lapel button. The old-t.imor who makes the best score wiU ' be given a gold lapel button in addition. The shooter who makes the best 'score and has not been shooting fifteen years will get-a silver lapel button. . indications are that there will be i>00'of those shoots held. There are more veterans in trapshooting than in an other sport. Trapshooting has fewer backBliders' than any other pastime. There is a saying which we believe is-tnie that "once a trap. sHooter, always a trapslvooter." The Sport of the Nation. Trapshooting Is the sport of the nation. If any sport should be encouraged that sport is trapshooting. It behooVjps everyone in these times to know how to shoot. B^'eryone who can shoot is at help to his country.. {( .^.merican fighting men are to live up to the reputation of their forefathers it will ba due In a measure to-thejr shooting ability. During recent years trapshooting has been the greatest single factor In keeping alive the intereist in firearms and their alfectlve and in maintaining the deadly aim of Americans. More than one hundred thou-saiid men%who learned to shoot over the traps wire wearing khaki, and knowing htly to shoot tliey were invaluable in Torming the new national army. There are thousands of men who have been shooting over the traps foj- fifteen years or more and are therefore known as old-titaevs. The oldest; trapihooter irthday broke more than ninety tfirg�it�; - 4i�^ilOQ,, ,.1he,j/jWe8t > active trapalftdotlei*' Is Antty* �^Iead�frs, .of Nasiivnrei ' Tenn.

The lieutenant with one of his own men aa a gunner mounted tWe tank under heavy fire and set it in motion and reached Castel, attacking on the way with machine guns several large group.s of Germans, putting many out of action. Eventually they returned safely to the French line. Sergt. MDuren, commanding another ^tank, noticing a German field battery retreating, followed it to attack the gunners. He found him,selt ,'500 yards within the German lines when his motor, refused to work. The sergeant dismounted with his crew under a hurricane of rifle lire and detached the machine guns, with which he repulsed a large force of Germans who attempted to' approach, firing until the last reel of cartridge.-, was spent. The "entire crew, except the sergeant, wat) wounded, but the sergeant gathered the injured men together and they made their way through thick-etia to the French positions. Both received the cross of the Legion of Honor on the battlefield. Tanks in Action With the British jVrmy in France, April 2G.-Only four German tanks appear to have beep In action Wed nesday about Viilers-Bretonneux, al-thoiigli nupnbers of others are ru-'mored to have been assigned to participate in the attack. 'The .fourth guards division whiclv a'dvftocetl against the town from the south, expected seven tanks to accompany, them, but three of them did not appear. The greatest secrecy appears to have been maintained by the German higher coraraand regarding these engines, so much ^bo , that the infantry had not been trained to work with them m their initial appearances. The German tanks sent into the fight at ViUers-Bretonneux acted quite independently of the foot noldiers. Their business apparently was to search out the machine gun nests and engage them, The fact that the crews of two of the enemy tanks abandoned them when they got into trouble would seem to indicate that the personpel Is not experienced. Pour German tanks came forwaM with the second attack at about nifte o'clock. . Only one clash between them and the British tanks occurred. That was when the quartette came up against pfto big British machine and two smaller ones. Both of the latter had been damaged somewhat by the heavy cannonade, but the bigger British machine forced the enemy to retreat and put one of the number-out of action. The crew of this German tank fled, as did that of another which afterwards got stuck in the mud. Neither tank, however, was completely smashed and the enemy got them awaV later. Both the damaged British tanks were saved. New German Tank From statements made by prisoners, the correspondent is able to give an -approximate description of the now Gorman tank. It Is about 36 feet long, twelve feel high and twelve feet wide. There is a central turret on top and the ^urret guns arc of about 131^ .cehtinietre, , These tanks also carryi'atibULLJriii.iaciiliie- guns, wlilch' flJe'lfrom-the- front, -r^ar and both flafllirc ''Ph'e"trac"k,"6r"^^ caterpillar bliW-v-otpbinwhich the 'tank ru^s, la,^'ii'Jfferf>lMt>'^.^5d' "By 'Several pairs of' .-i^'(J^S;'/,'Ai'i4,or;.. piate';^ gives the wliqly-ia^Cllfn^^^^r^^^^ of traagtb r^wlir^^ be: di^ijMo^' Elsewhere-Uje jObJact of the"'.IM�niv Is fo lise lip the'allfea.reserves."-Hi. has 'failed to separate the .;fVaJJc(^ British arniieB, but .)� 'more tfrwi* able thrust than any, hMherto made \i: probably pl^hnei; ih the, dlrecU^h t�) Amlemr aiM^'tijie Somiue estuary,- wltt the view of tutting .off the' malr Frenclj. fprces.
