More entries are ex- pected momentarily. Fastball, or sofiball as It used to be called (and we can't understand why she name was changed) is a great spectator sport.

CtherwJse eomething awful might happen. Winnipeg will beat St. Mikes and win the Memorial Cup and we will be very happy and prosperous. A BIT OF EVERYTHING Something big in the hockey world is goiaa to break one of these days. Local golfers will have a chance to see the best in the coun- try in the "West this year, at the "Canadian Amateur in Edmon- ton this July, and in Winnipeg- in August at a big Open tournament at which many top American pros will perform.
