Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 9, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBEl'DGE DAILY HERALD Align! 1912 ALL THE LOCAL AND WORLD'S FOREMOST EVENTS CALLIES WERE IN FINE FORM_LAST NIGHT S. E. Suffered Severe Reverse in Scott: Cup Semi-Final-Englishmen's Line-up Badly Crippled-Final Next Week GAMES IN THE BIG LEAGUES WRIGHT CHARITY SHIELD St. Cyprian's and S. p. E., byes St. Andrew's vs. ,Callies. Overseas vs. St. .Mary's, Dates for these will be an- nounced later. In a, game which was not particu- larly exciting at any stage, the re; doubtable Calliea put it over the Sous of England last 'night to the time ol 6 goals to 0. The fixture was the semi- final tie of the Scott Gup, aud by vlctorjj the Scotchmen earned the right to meet" the winner of foe Over- Mary's match, to 'be played next -week, in the final, The Song were somewhat at a dis- iftdvantage, owing to the fact that of their regular players were .tlnftble, owing to sickness and accl- to take the field, and this ac- counts in a large measure for the de-, feat Inflicted by tie Callies. The lat Her, too, had a somewhat Hue tip, though in this respect they -were ziot so brilly off as their opponents. rjg Thompson; Easton and Glrn, Wfayte ami Clark; Llnnlny, Knight, Tennaut, ilcllvena MfAfwtte.

Gtiliei Won Ton The GtHits won the toss, and Fiuaoh' kicked off, whm.t iht ball iras taken right down to Callie terri- tory. Bannerman cleared, however, and a ipell of midfield play followed. From a throw-in, agiinit the Sons, Tennant got the ball, which- he plac- ed beautifully in front of the Sons' goal. A scrimmage ensued, wfticti culminated in a corner. Knight took the kick, and the sphere right in- to the English goal. Bill Whyte was lying handy, and headed the ball past Coles for the -first tally. From the lack-off the ball travelled up and down the field, the -Sons, if anything, having the best of it. Holtwrton and Lse were playing "well at" this juncture and both had shots at goal, hut each time thay were off the mark, and the ball went by. The Callie forwards vent, their right wing 'working nicely together, and Coles bad difficulty in clearing a shot from that quarter. The S. 0. E. -worked the ball down to Scotch ter- ritory, and were rewarded by a tree kick close to the goal, but the ed their line-up: Poole was in goal, Coles going outside right; Willetts took tho centre forward position, am Ball went half-back. These change were not, however, elective aealns the fine play of the SccUhmen, who immediately from the kick-off -foreet a' couple of corners. The second o these was finely placed, the ball roll Ing right along the front of the Eng Hsh goal, but not a CaIHe" could get to it in time. The Sons then took up the running, and their forwards show- ed flashes of splendid combination, Lee feeding them finely. Their ef- forts, however, were unsuccessful ag- ainst the Calites' stubborn defence, and Thompson wag untroubled. Play was ultimately transferred to the Etag- lish endj where Poole saved a sting- ing "daliy cutter" from Linning in brilliant' style." This youngster was again prominent In tussles with Lee and Holberton, :both of 'whom he beat, but with no tangible -'result. Again the Sons' forwards pressed towards the Callie goal, Jordin and Bestwick working nicely together, but they TOMMY BURNS HAD EASY PICKING National Marquard "cat Hendrlx Now 'York, Aug. york won tlio last giuuo of the series from Pitt- burg In tho tenth Inning, the score bo- Ing 2 to 1.

The final effort was left to Mellvshai who 'beat the Eng- lish goalkeeper with a shot which the latter foiled to gather. The play from now on was all in favor of the Scotchmen. Their fourth goal came from a corner, Tennant do- ing the needful. On two occasions immediately afterwards the ball was literally fished out from the English goal mouth. The last counter 'was scored by Llnnlng, after a fine indi- vidual effort, and the final whistle found the Callies easy winners -by five goals io nil. Bill Rickard Lasted Six Rounds With the Ex- Champion Saskatoon, Aug. Bums the one time heavy-weight champion, showed some of hia old time form to- night in a scheduled fifteen round bout with Bill Rickard.

The method of instruction .used by Mr. Gilmore is old but can't be beaten. He has a pole and a" rope upon' which the learner is suspended as it were, and the instructor walks along the brink of the pool holding his charge up while he is stroking. Swimming is greatly a matter confidence, and with that belief in mind the instruct- or allows. the would-be swimmer to continue after. the first few strokes under the impression that he is be- ing held up, 'when as, a matter of 'act the line has 'been slackened and :he learner Is holding himself up with- out aid.
