Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 5, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBUIDGB DAILY Monday 5, IS i i 1 il ENGLISH AVIATOR MAKES ALL THE LOCAL AND WORLD'S FOREMOtT fVENTS ROYALS LOOK LIKE MINTO CUP AGAIN Lacrosse Difficulties Seem to be Overcome at the and New Westminster j Battled Saturday; Latter Won i VANCOUVER LACROSSE PLAYER BADLY HURT IN SATURDAY'S GAME LOSERS FINISHED LIKE A HOUSE AFIRE IVandouTer, August 3. Throughou three quarters of Saturday afternoon's la crease game, Westminster Con Jones' hired help to a standstill Then for the final Quarter Vancouver (o a finish'tbat was a hair-rais lug and came so near turning the of defeat Into .victory that eWst- minster was heartily glad when it was over. The final score was 5 to 4, with on the long end, and mak- ing the Royal City men likely winners of the Minto Cup. Bach aide scored two goals in the first quarter and played as fine la- crosse ag'-aris ever put up. Less than four minutee from the start Godfrey, of tVAflcourer picked the hall from just behind the Westminster net, slipped arourtd and flopped it in by reaching! over the top from the back. The West- mtoiaters scored arid back Vancouver in a lifchtning pbiy by Nick Carter to ed Jn> the crowd roasted Halstead roughly. This seemed to have the desired for the third quarter had not started a minute before two Westminster men were benched. Gor don, Spring- and Pickering were knock ed out at the same moment soon after this and the game took a long: rest Spring, recovered but Pickering with a dislocated shoulder had to be re- placed by Oumrains. Vancouver Wakes up In the final Vancouver started the nost effective attack ever seen ou the ocal field. There were twenty min- utes 'of wonderful lacrosse. were the Vancouvers So tight- crowded Ladonde, scored. No penalties were exacted in the first quarter and when the players came off to rest, the Vancouver fans were kicking a good deal at Referee Bert Hate lead for allowing rough tac- tics by Westminster. Playtd Stronger Hilt time saw -Westminster with one in the lead and playing stronger aud with more precision than Vancou- ver, They scored ajaiu in the third. At half time two Vancouver men. had been sent off and when the men walk- around the Westminster goal that the Vancouver defence forgot himself and a Westminster "runner, with a good itart carried the ball up field and a score followed; Then Vancouver came back with two goals, literally fprced in by .overpowering weight. In the last three Vancouver made half, a doze a on the West- minster aad all but overwhelmed the tired .City plajeri, who were praying for the bell. Visitors Vancouver's defence is much infer-- ior to Westminster's. That is the big difference between the teams and it required far greater skill and effort for Vancouver to score than for West- minster. The big crowd gave the vis- itors lota of applause which is signifi- cant in view of the recent mix-up.

This is, the statement of Orville A. Hurst, manager of the Oldfield transcontinental tour. The set for Barney Oldfield ,to show here along with other world's famous auto drivers has been set for Thursday afternoon at the exhibition track, when the great speed king a-nd his confederates will make a display of lightning fast auto driving. Just what the program will consist of will not be determined till Oldfield himself appears on tho scene tho day It is sufficient to say, at this juncture, that the patrons will be treated to some of the greatest thrill-producing performances that'only Oldfteld and his companions are celebrated for. Wide Track is a Pasture Mr. Hiirst told the Herald tnis morning that the track here is especially fast by virtue of its fine width. "The turns are the best of any track I have seen in.this country and what an auto driver de- sires most Is plenty of room to turn and the width of the turns of your track here are its special feature. This will allow Oldfteld .to manipulate his machine in a manner that augers well for broken records and, it will a 'feather in the cap for Lethhridge to be able to boast of having a track where Oldfield -made said the speed king's 'manager. But Oldfleld is not the only one to be considered in this carnival here on Thursday. Mr. Hurst says that for" dare-devil driving Batney has nothing on "Wild BiH" Fritcu ana Lou Heiman, who are 'not happy un- less taking their lives in their bands behind the wheel, seeing how close they come to peeling boards off the fence. There 'was an attempt to bring a C. P. R. train into commission to take the crowds to the grounds Thursday, but it was unsuccessful. All C. P. H. conveyances are being used to bring harvest help from the and none could bo spared. However rigs, autos and busses will be ready in a plentiful number and will no doubt be adequate for the work. There will be an immense throng out in all probability.
