Tomorrow the locals will have their regulars in action, and the team that is to play during Stampede baseball week will be given the once over by the fans. On Wednesday evening next, Cardston will be on deck for its first game of the season. Beazer, a strike-out pitcher, will show his wares with the visitors. He has a record of 16 strike-outs in one game this year. Cardston always had a pretty fair ball team and think they can trim the locals, who haven't been going any too good of late. RECORD YEAR ON ONTARIO TRACKS With District Ball Teams As the Old Boy Says : ?") "The longer you smoke a Promoter Blunt, the nearer you come to dissatisfaction--that the end is coming." (The 3-for-a-quarter Cigar) S. DAVIS & SONS, LIMITED, MONTREAL. All the players not being present, the ball team last night failed to appoint a manager for the remainder ot tho season. All players however, are urged to be out to practice tonight at 7 o'clock sharp when a manager will be appointed. It is urgent that all players who wish to take part in tho remainder of the season's games should be on hand. It was decided at the meeting that the proposed tournament during Stam pede week should be called off. Quito n number of the teams that the local club was depending on as contenders have let it be known that they cannot stand the expense o� keeping a team in the city for three or four days, but tiiey would be glad to come in for one i game. It was therefore decided that tho club should stage"!ts week ot baseball during Stampede week. Six teams will bo brought in commencing Monday, Aug. 13. A gamo will be played every evening at Eckstorm Park. The locals will secure the necessary t.wirlers for the six games, and with the' strongest linc-u.i of the year they think they can go out and clean up the majority of the games. Carmangay wants to come in, Vulcan will also be on deck. Magrath and Raymond will likely be two of the other teams. Rutledge and Gor-rill will likely be members of the pitching staff for the week. The city will be crowded with fans during the stampede and the biggest crowds of the year are expected to patronize the week of baseball. PILLING CHAMPION OF THE GUN CLUB At the Thursday evening shoot the chief event was the club championship race. This is a 50-target event and entitles tho winner to possession for one year of the "Adams' Cup." JClght contestants shot in this event. Poor light and a nasty wind made good shooting impossible. Following are the scores: 20 23 20 no Ttl. 43 43 42 41 38 38 34 34 CARMANGAY WON. Carmangay, August 3.-Carmangay won the game from Stavely last night 6 to 4. It was the best game ever played on the local diamond. Carmangay showed up against the Spokane Indian players on the Stavely team in great shape. The Carmangay men scored two runs In the second innings on hits- by Jensen, Stooke and Merrill. Stavely evened up in the fourth and got another In the 5th and aonth-er in tho 6th. Carmangay scored threo in the fifth, and that finished the scoring. Marshall, the big Spokane pitcher, pulled an awful boner in the ninth which robbed Stavely of the run that would even up. Ho was caught stealing third by twenty feet. McComber pitching for Carmangay struck out 5 men and had 4 assists. Preliminary reports to the government by Clarkson, Gordon & Dill-worth, accountants appointed by the government to report upon business done at race courses throughout Ontario, show that the attendance at meets this year has been larger Ithan any year in their history. The government will collect about 160 per cent, more in amusement tax from race course admissions this year than in 1016. This is due to the increase of the tax from 10c to 25c and the larger attendance at races. Although racing ends on AugUBt 1 and there will be no fall meets In consequence, the government will this year collect over 1100,000 from the race courses alone In amusement tax. It is stated that the Arm of official accountants will not have their report coiiipieted before September. COALDALE'S REPORT Tho Coaldal ball team took a fall out of the Lethbridge team on Saturday night. TJiey started in for business, crossing the plate four times in the first inning, one of them being Noble's home run. Lethbridge came back with a vengeance with seven "funs but thoy couldn't stand the pace and when they "came to" Suggitt's sluggers were two laps ahead. The boys were strengthened a good deal by the addition of the Gtllis boys to tho team, both in the field and at bat. Glen Potter made a "home run" at noon when ho was married, and hit a three-bugger in tho game, and he was there at the receiving end two. Jackson hit tho ball every time to bat, making three singles, a double and a three bagger. The others followed in good order. The team is entered for the tournament, so lot's all get down to business and play ball. Have regular nights for practice. Let everybody who can wear a glove get out and help them got tho practice. Get out a second team and give the boys something to work on. Get out early for it's getting dark earlier. Don't let It matter if you are not on the team. Come along and give your support. We need every person In the community a fan supporting the team. Do it and see what a difference it makes In their playing. And again, let's see regular practices, three times a week with two full llneuns. , LAST WEEK WITH THE BIG LEAGUES New York.-The leaders In tho National and American leagues left, their home grounds for the road last week and as a result found the going harder and thoir leads cut down. Twenty points wore clipped from New York's advantage in tho National league and Chicago lost nine. In the National St. Louis and Cincinnati continued their good work and both teams passed Philadelphia. Of five games played St. Louis did not lose ono nnd Cincinnati won four out ot five. Today Cincinnati lost to Philadelphia and St. Louis fell before Bostou. Giants Are Checked. New York's winning streak of tho previous week was broken .Monday by Pittsburg and three against Chicago New York won only two. The Giants began another week today by defeating Chicago (i to 5. Chicago braced Monday and heat Boston, after losing to the Braves Tuesday, Mitchell's men returning home and on their own grounds won two out of the first series f from the league leaders. , Boston Wins Five in a Row. I Chicago owed the maintenance of Its lead In the American to two victories over Boston the first part of the week. Against Now York in six games the last ot the week the White Sox broke even. Boston, after losing two games to Chicago met St. Louis at home and in five games won every game of the series, one of the games going 12 innings. The Red Sox now are only two games behind Chicago. Detroit Playa Well. Cloveland showed no improvement, while Detroit continued its good work and New York improved over tho previous week, with the result that Saturday Cleveland and Detroit were tied for third place, with New York only two Eamos behind.

This is the third time Harry has won this, he having been champion in 1914 and 1916. Things are shaping up nicely for the big tournament on tho Thursday of stampede week. Quite a few out of town shooters will be here and as shooting will start at 9 o'clock sharp it will be all over by noon. The big event at this will be the 50 target race for the single target championship of Southern Alberta. The winner is entitled to possession for one year of tho magnificent "Brewery Cup." The winner last year was R. G. Robinson, of Calgary, who broke 49 targets. R. G. says he would like to keep the cup in his den for another year and ho will be here with his old piece of gas pipe. Champion Gun Club are staging a tournament on the 22nd, and all tho Lethbridge shooters will be there with bells on. admit defeat. Kumagao's brilliant playing earned him a place in the first ten, being rated sixth. Kumagae's return is certain to stimulate interest in tennis. William N. Johnston, former national champion, and rated second lart year, has started east and will be a competitor. Norris Williams, national champion, and Washburn, member of the first ten, now are ip training at Platts-burg, but have found a few spare moments to devote to tennis. George M Church, member of the first ten, is in the aviation corps nnd during his spare time on terra flrma has been wielding the racket. If these stars can get away long enough to tako part in the tourney it is certain to as sume national proportions and revive the sport. Kumagae has been taking part in all tho tourneys in the orient this season and his efforts have been crowned with success. His play on American courts last year was brilliant and the advantage of continued practice this year while tho American stars have been forced to lot up in play will make him very dangerous. Kumagae must be watched. JAP TENNIS STAR IS MANY ATHLETICS ARE SOLDIERS New York, Aug. 3.-Tho sporting world will give more rugged soldiers and sailors to Undo Sam than any other class. The athletic youth ot tho country, with his restless, aggressive spirit and his superb physical fitness, is iu great demand for all branches of g0v-ernment service, and when the Stars and Stripes are firmly planted In the trenches abroad, backed up by thousands of khaki-clad American soldiers, sportB will be more than well represented. College men are going to play an important part. They will dominate the thousands who will represent sports because they are so numerous and because the patriotic spirit has swept over every school and college In the country, spurring them to be among tho first to answer tho call to arms. Practically every college man in the country who Is of mllltjary age and unhampered by dependents, is either actively engaged In service ljow or preparing himself to enter some branch of it. YALE FOOTBALL SCHEDULE IS OFF, New York, Aug. 3.-Yale's football schedule for this fall has been cancelled. Tho usual list ot games wero arranged last January, and there has been some delay in writing to Yale's rivals and asking, in view of tho war situation, whether the games can not be given up. Yale nas not yet received formal response from either Harvard or Princeton to its. proposal that freshmen games be played this fall. Yale plans to arrange n light schedule for the 1921 eleven, and would bo glad to close it with games against Harvard and Princeton. Prof. Robert Cor.win, chairman of the Yale board ot athletic control, has just returned from Boston, where ho met Dean Briggs, who holds the similar position at Harvard. The athletic situation was discussed exhaustively. Dean Briggs appeared pleased with the idea of a freshman game with Yale, but Harvard's official action on the matter, like that of Yale, probably will depend on the military sttuu-tlon when college opens In September. ' It is taken for granted among Yale undergraduates that western colleges will vote at the Washington conference of August 2 to continue collegiate athletics this fall. This will not affect the Yale Btand that athletic sportB be kept entirely subservient to military needs till the close of the war. <-----* *' POPULAR PROMOTION. ^J; t -. London, Aug. 2.-The promotion of Brigadier-General Archibald Macdon-nell to be major-general, which was gazetted today, was fully expected and warmly welcomed by nil Canadians here. Major-Gen. Macdonnell was in England recently for some time, and no one enjoys the confidence of the men to a greater extont. The national tennis singles to be played at Forse Hills next month will not be without an added attraction. According to' a recent dispatch Ichlya Kumagae, the sensational Jap racket wielder and champion of Japan, again will visit tho United States and expects to be here in time to participate in the tournament. ' Last yeur Kum-ngao met with success In many of the big tourneys and for a time-looked dangerous in the singles. He was not stopped until he reachod the third round, when the driving stylo of play used by George M, Church baffled him to such an extent that he had to The AuUist Who Seeks ,The best equipment for . his car will make no mistake when he drives up to our door.
