Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 8, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta fill MGESIX LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD SATURDAY, AUGUST 8, 1914 WAR WILL NOT SIOP QUESTIONABLE STATEMENT BY J. G. MERRICK, CANADIAN REPRE- SENTATIVE AT OLYMPIC HELPED BY CHANGE IN RULES Toronto, Out, Aug. am confi- dent that the Olympic games will be held In Berlin in 1016, in spite of the said James G. Merrick, the Can- adian, delegats to the Olympic Con- gress at Paris, "who returned home this morning. "The war is not likely to last mors than four months at the outside The backbone of the ex- pense for the big games has already teen met and the stadium is up, so it not take much capital to hold the games as scheduled." Mr. iterrick is very much delighted the way in Trhich things swung Ca- nada's way at the Olympic Congress. without coxswains will also help us hero, for that is the style we are fam- iliar with in this country. "In athleticms' they dispensed with the standing high and broad jumps and the right and left-hand throwing of-the shot, discus and javelin. In future weight men may use either hands, and the best throw counts. The Flag Oath "The big general feature of the con- gress was the "whole-souled effort made to keep the Olympiad a competi tion for bona-fide amateurs. Steps were taken to ensure the responsibil- ity the National Olympic committee of each country. They will be men TOM LONGBOAT SIGNS THE ROLL The congress, which was the first held I whose integrity may uot be question- in twenty years, lasted fifteen days, and -was attended by 250 delegates, re- presenting thirty nations. Boxing and Wrestling "The tiggest thing for Canada -was the inclusion ot boxing and wrestling In the programme, the addition of a 3500-metre walk, the reduction in the size of', yachts for the two competi- tions and the addition to the rowing card of a fours race without cox- iwains, and a double said Mr. Merrick. "Canada will have excellent chances in boxing and wrestling. The matter of local quarrelling Trill not en- ter Into the situation at all.. Any ama- teur boxer whose status can be Touch- ed for by the Canadian Olympic conv. mittee will be eligible for the boxing equad. The reduction in the size of yachts to the six and eight-metre clauses Trill give Canada a chance to tnild -boats and ship them across for the games. The expense will not be- pronibitlve, as it would probably be in the larger classes. A Distinct Advantage "The double-scull event is a distinct- audition to the card for Canada and the United .States. They do not row doubles across the water. The fours. ed. These committees will be respon- sible for the status of the men they send out In every event, and in addi- tion each competitor will be 'required to take the amateur declaration at the games-upon the. flag of his own coun- try. The Olympic Congress is deter- mined that there TrIH he no more Thorpe cases, .which leave a feeling disquietude in the minds of the auth- orities. Women to Compete "The. Congress also decided that vomen would be allowed to compete, and that the points won by them would count Jor their. country. The programme was fixed for each class, and tie.rules to govern each sport were decided ilpon. The number of entries was limited to sis nominations, and. four to compete In each Individual contest. In the crar_and .team ev- ents, two-nominations are allowed, and both will be aHtfwed to. compete. This applies in the yacht racing. No Lacrosse "National sports, such as cricket, baseball, hockey, lacrosse, curling and other sports, in which only one or two nations are expert were excluded from the programme." CHICK EVANS PLAYING GOLF LIKE A WIZARD By Hugh S. Fuller-ton) "When a fellow plays 27 holes, 18 of them in par, ate below par, and three one strokes above par, he is plajing considerable Jerome Travers golf. When he gets away 22 oat of 27 tee shots perfectly, and makes 23 out of 27 approaches in grand style, without A flub In the entire 27, he is a golfer. "When, he plays the entire 27 and miss- es only three probable putts, he is go- ing considerably. That what Chick Evans did at Grand Rapids, -winning in the finals for the 'Western, championship. He is playing the greatest golf of his great career this season, Is steadier and more brilliant. His play in the Brit- ish amateur tournament was almost up'to the same mart, but he ran ag- ainst a feHtfff, who, for one day, was Bhooting unbeatable golf. Chick has been rated as probably the best medal play amateur in Am- erica for several seasons, and this year he bids fair to become as great at match as at medal. A Michigan game warden was shot by a fellow, who killed a deer out of WHATS BECOME OF SERVlA (By Ring W. Lardner) I don't keep up with all the news; I've not the time to spare, But war reports I do peruse Religiously, I swear; And yet, I'm very much in doubt That I have got it right. I'm asking you to help me out, If youll be so polite. 'Twag my impression, from the stuff I read a "week ago, That Austria was in a huff And threatening a foe Called Servla, and that the war Would be between these two. I knew what they were fighting for; At least I thought I knew. But maybe I was dreaming "when I got that In my head; Perhaps my eyes were1 bleary And fooled me when I read. For now, though I scan all the dope About the bloody game, Not even with a microscope Can I find Servia's name. BOUT FOR FERN1E Fernie, B. C., Aug.

In the Brookes-Parke contest the Irish player was twice within a stroke of the match, and Brookes dashed in to kill by gentle touches at the net, saving the game, and match.
