Authority Lauds Ring Game for Soldiers and Sailors. According to the best authorities on physical exercise, boxing is tho most beneficial for soldiers and sailors. When questioned ono physical director said: "Naturally, I hnvo devoted u great deal of time and study to this ilitestion. I have coino to tho conclusion that of all the exercises there is none that is more beneficial to soldier* and Bailors than boxing. Tho reasons nre simple, In tho first placo boxing not only brings into pluy practically every muscle in the body, but it also quickens tho eyo, and taxes the brain. Furthermore, boxing brings into play thoao muscles which have to be employed in bayonet and like exercises. It is an exercise for the arms, legs and body and when Indulged in with well padded gloves and the opponents are well matched in size and strength can not be harmful." Sport Summary Troy, N.Y., Aug. 8.-Ted "Kid" Lewis of England, world's welterweight champion, outpointed Butch O'Hagen of Albany, in a ten-round bout at Saratoga Springs last night. Lewis floored O'Hagen five times In the second round but the Albany boy came back in fine shape. New York, Aug. 8.-Bill Bren-nan, of Ctiicago, outfought Bartley Madden of this city tn every round of a ten-round contest here last night. Madden was knocked down twice in the first round with rights to the jaw. Brennan weighed 195 and Madden 175. BOUT TAKES PLACE !.T6 never won a pennant in the Western Canada League, the team piloted by him has won the championship of the Canadian Army in France. But let the "Deacon" tell It In his own racy style. Tho following letter from him appeared in the sport columns of tho Edmonton Journal recently: Somewhere in France, July 1th, 1917. Dear Mac: - 1 am back at tho front again and, of course, was tagged immediately for a sort of mentor on sports during the summer months, particularly baseball man, as ho is a grand hitter. As a pitcher he has great speed and control of his fast ball, but he hasn't a curve ball to mix in, and until he has acquired one, is a doubtful proposition against good ball teams. 1 had to take him out against the 1st division team for this reason. He would have mowed them down if he had a good curve ball. Bakewell finished the game; he has even more speed than Smith and has a fair curve ball. Either of these men would make a swell pitcher iu time. Three Men From Toronto. Willey, 2iul-b.; Burrows, lst-b; and Eagleson, s.s., are three young Toron- And I must say that the Canadian. tp 1)all playcrB. Brown ami SaPi out. tor a ,,,,,,,,,.............. ]eaguers from I! Manyberries Light Heavyweight Will Give Young Ross Fight of His Life JENNINGS' COMEBACK. Detroit fans charge Hughey Jennings with mismanaging his pitching staff. Jennings replies that he has no pitchers to mismanage. , Things are Bhaping up for the meeting between Young Al Ross find the Norway Boy in the ring hero on the morning of Thursday, August 16. That is tho date set for tho fray. The club has found it necessary to stage the big event in the morning in order not to interfere with other attractions of the week. It is felt that tho second day of the Stampede will give the greatest number of fans a chance to see tho first ring battle for many moons. A morning a new departure but the mooting between Clonic Tnlt and Johnny O'taary during tho stampede at Medicine Hat was pulled off in tho morning, and as many people were turned away as succeeded In getting in to tho theatre to see the match. Tho second day will be the big day of the Stampede here. Tho whole south country will be on deck and tho Ross-Norway Boy match will be the morning attraction. It will -be held in the Majestic at'11 o'clock. The scrap will bo a battle between a middleweight and a light heavyweight. Ross now weighs about 165 pounds in good training, and will likely enter tho ring at that weight. Ho Is working out every day, and fans all over tho south know his worth as a hard hitting ring general. Ho will need all he has to meet The Norway Boy who Is a 180-pounder with tho strength of a blacksmith. Al Hoselton who is now residing at Manyberries, says the Norway Boy Is as strong as a horse and in the pink of condition and he will glvo Young Ross the battle of hiB life. OILLHOEFER, A GOOD YOUNG CATCHER The Cubs have a line young catcher in "Pickles" Dillhoofcr, who Is sharing the backstopping with Art Wilson. GIBSON'S SON ENLISTS Catcher George Gibson of the Giants 1b past the age where he is expected to do any fighting tor Canada, but he has seat bis oldest boy, age 18, to the colors. The youngster, as soon as bis Army Corps certainly goes in multiplicity of sports with an earnestness that would do your heart good, and that, too, in the very shadow, as some ono lias put it, of Vimy Ridge. I read an article in The Journal on the front page, of a baseball game be-i tween tho second and third brigades j in which a left-handed. Indian pitcher ! performed wonderfully. This was our old friend Chief Kootenai, formerly with the Knights of Columbus in the Edmonton City League. Chief is some pitcher now, for a fact. Five Teams Entered. Am enclosing the box scores of some recent games for the divisional championship of tho Canadian Army Corps. There were five teams in this contest, one from each division and one from headquarters. Tho 1st division defeated the 2nd division; 3rd division defeated the 4th division; 1st division defeated headquarters, 6 to 1. The final game was between the 1st and 3rd divisions, and as you will see from the box scores wo were returned winners. In our recent game against tho 4th division we had little difficulty in win> nlng, a six-foot-four southpaw pitch' ing a fine brand of ball for us. He hails from Pittsburg, Pa., and bears tho appropriate name of Able. Pick of Many Battalions. We had only four days in which to pick a team to represent the third division, and prepare for this game The four battalions in tho seventh brigade sent down what they considered box scores that follow, tho errors and heavy hitting were due to the nature of the ground. Semi-Flnal game, played June 29th, Somewhere in France: 3rd Division........... 10 8 4 4 th Division ............ 4 8 5 Batteries-Abel and Knisely; Backus and Robinson. Final game for divisional championship, played "Somewhere in France" on Dominion Day, July 2: 3rd Division............ 11 12 fi 1st Division ............ 9 13 4 Batteries- Smith, Bakewell and Knisely and Dobson; Kootenai, Maxwell and Stevenson. York each have five, while Ohio, Nebraska,. Canada, Arkansas and Michigan, two each, and Arizona, Vermont, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Idaho, Connecticut, Maryland, Colorado, South Dakota Washington, each have one listed. SLING TENNIS NEW GAME MANY SHOOTS LISTED IN AUGUST at fielders, are old minor the Three-Eye and Central, respectively. Turner, s.s., played independent ball in Saskatchewan. Dobson, catcher, was a good left-hand hitter and a smart receiver. As a matter of fact, I had a left-hand hitter for every position in case wo met a right hand pitcher, and right-handed hitters to use against (lie southpaws if necessary. The 1st division had young Chapman from Edmonton, (formerly with the K.C.'s), playing shortstop, and started the came with Kootenai pitching. They had a belter ball team than I gave them credit for producing out here in the trenches but when I discovered they had been practising together daily for a month, it was not to bo wondered at. � They had three pitchers, Baker, Maxwell and Kootenai, who are all good enough for minor league ball, land I guess this man Baker has been i in that class for he sure knows how I to work with men on bases. Both Bak-| or and Maxwell have great speed and a sharp breaking curve. Both are j overhand pitchers. Baker did not I pitch against us, but I saw him work against tho headquarters team, allowed five hits and gave one pass. Maxwell, if anything, has more stuff than Baker. Kootenai Greatly Improved. And old Kootonai has them both skinned for control and stuff on the ball. They took Kootenai out after Grand American Will Be Staged Chicago. A blue ribbon event of sportdom- the grand American trapshooting tournament-takes place during August. It is one of the 6B tournaments registered by the Interstate Association for tho Encouragement of Trap-shooting to take place during "dog days." These CG tournaments are listed in 22 states and Canada. Registered tournaments in no ways tell of the number of trap events that are held in the country. The registered events are the ones In which the Interstate association gives aid. The grand American and the two Canadian tournaments are the biggest of the month, The grand American takes place at the South Shore Country club, Chicago, 111., during the week beginning August 20. The following week the Canadian national exhibition will stage its second five-day shoot at Toronto and on the 13th, 14th loth and lClh of the month the Dominion Game and Trapshooting association will stage its annual feat at Sandwich, Ont. Trapshooters making preparations to go to the grand American tournament should take heed of the date for the closipg of entries. It is August 4, with B. E. Shaner, 219 Coltard street, Pittsburg, Pa. Iowa leads in the number of registered tournaments in August with 13. Pennsylvania and Illinois come next with seven each. Wisconsin and New Has Gained Great Popularity Among Soldiers In War-Bags Filled With Beans or Pebbles Are Used as Balls. Sling tennis Is one of the new games developed by the war. It has gained great popularity in European camps and behind the HneB where it is impossible to secure properly leveled court surfaces on which to play regular tennis. The court is regulation Bize and is marked same as regulation courts. Either a soft ball, without resiliency or a bag filled with pebbles or beans is used. Regular racket frames are used, strung with cord, forming a pocket inside, somewhat resembling a lacrosse club. The ball is tossed out of tbe racket with a swinging motion, the object being to keep it off the ground. If the ball is dropped it counts a fault against the player or side dropping It, the counting being the same as in tennis. The game Is said to have become very popular among tennis players barred from their regular sport by local conditions. w their four best players and tho Mh ! ho nnd Pitched two innings iu which , brigade sent three players all told CHANGE MAY HELP MARSAN8 Armando Marsuns has always been eager to wear a New York uniform. Maybo his engagement by the Yankees will clear his batting eye. "The majority of people eat too much, anyway," said Miss Eddie, professor of Household Sciefece at the Manitoba Agricultural College, when discussing the Canadian food controller's suggestion that hotels sad restaurants Institute two meatless day* per school year closed, hustled to an om-| week. "And limiting hotel menus to cers' training camp. i two or la a fine Idea." and the 9th sent three players, Then there were four players from an entrenching battalion, one from divisional signallers, making 27 in all to pick from, many of them playing the same positions. Of course this system was not a thorough search of the division and doubtless there is somo talent still uncovered. But I must say that I was able to pick a team of good hitters, with fair fielding ability and discovered five players of real class. One player from Toronto by the name of Bako-well, is tho greatest Infield prospect I have seen in years. He has a marvelous arm and throws n ball accurately from where he gets it, with the velocity of a whiz-bang. He has a big, quick pair of hands and /handles ground balls boautifully. Ho is somo RWiUsmith. Catcher Knisely, Edmonton. I haven't time to toll you about all those players. You will bo ploased to note that Knisely is from Edmonton and is the best receiver and finest base-thrower I have yet seen amongst amateur players. Nelson, center-fielder, is from Peace Ulver country; Fleming, another outfielder, is from Lacombe, and big; Smith, the pitcher, Is from Red Deer. So you will see that Alberta is well represented on the divisional baseball champions of the Canadian Army Corps in France, he struck out six men and walked none. Some errors were made behind him, but it was impossible tor players to pick up a ground ball unless a good bounce came to them. Tho infield and outer gardens were hard and rough. On a good diamond the pitchers on both sides would havo received almost perfect support as tho class was there, and It was really too bad to see two good ball teams battling on such a rough field. From a spectator's standpoint though the game cJfeuld not have been bettor. We scored four runs off Kootena' ftnd wero in the lead, 4 to 1, for several innings. Then tho 1st division horned into the toad, 0 to 5, in the seventh Inning. We came back in the eighth and scored two runs, again assuming the load. The 1st came back with three In tho ninth, and wo retaliated with four in our half of the ninth, winning by 11 to 9. 8ome Crowd of 40,000. The game was played in a sort of natural amphitheatre, the ground behind the home plato rising at an angle of 30 degrees to a big height, and this hillside was packed tier on tier with soldiers, who hung breathlessly on the game until tho last man was out, so close and exciting was it. A conservative estimate of the crowd made by an officer In my hearing, was 40,000, There v.aa considerable betting on the game; in fact I guess that everyone This man Smith la G feet 3 inches, j who had money got it down.
