Cranbrook's protest against Lethbridge was heard at Frank yesterday. 11. J. Skeith being present as Lcthbridgc's representative. The protest was upheld and thk� game played hero annulled. The Association has no sensible provision in regard to protests aa.l appeals from decisions and Lenn-bridge virtually had no opportunity to learn the basis of the protest anil file a defence. No sensible league works along in such a ridiculous manner as that.
