GET IT HERE BIJOU MOTOR PARLORS, LTD. "THE HOUSE OF SERVICE" 2^ Chica.qo.-There may be nothiu.t; now under the sun. but just the same a, lot of new thiug.s bob up continually in the boxing game, s-ays Kd W. Smith. From time to time freak punches have developed, freak bo.\ers have come up like a flash, the solar plexus was the marvel of a day. the knockout on the chin and all the rest come to us from time to lime, and some of them became regular institutions in the ring of sport. Occasionally an unusual boxer will be smart enough to pick up something that was an established feature of the (lays of long ago And by handling it carefully make a great name for himself. Take the case ot Jack Dempsey. the young heavyweight wonder from Salt Lake. He discarded the blow on the chin as Ills great knockout feature. He went back to the old days of bare knuckle fighting and adopted the blow under tlie ear or on the jug-lar vein as the big kick with wliich to put the foe down and out. And he has met with remaritablo success with it-Chin Protected. Jack did a little figuring for himself, and having learned that the modern fighter protects his chin to the utmost exclusion ot everything else, set about to pick out some other vulnerable .spot. He harked back to the old days-who knows but what it might have been a suggestion by the inimitable Spider Kelly?-and then started out' to develop the Idea in his own way. He started cracking them around the ear region and in the neck district and the results were startling. When a man attacked Jack slapped him off his balance by a sharp sweep of his urm, and as the opponent went by he stepped in with a right bander to said targets. He found the punches there were as good or even better in their results than in constantly aiming at the well protected chin. He began toppling them over in u big hurry. Used by Old Timers. It was merely a system that was highly developed among the old-time fighters who eked out a miserable existence before tlie mighty John L. and his smart handlers-chief among them Billy Madden-discovered that a tightly padded fist in collision with the point of a man's jaw, brouglit a man down heavily and usually for the fatal 10 count. The old-timer aimed ohieny at a point on the neck just below the ear and got hla results that way. Dempsey cracked Dan Flynn out In a round in Atlanta, Ga., the otlier night and did the trick so easily that the crp of "setup" rang out all over the country. Now to be quite in accord with the facta, "Porky" Plynn la nobody's fool and a setup for no man. If you need confirmation of this, get into communication with Fred Fulton, whose cliampion.ship aspirations were well nigh completely wrecked on two occasions by this same "Porky," Ho wont 20 rounds in New Orleans with Fred and in a lO-round encounter a little later in St. Paul he put up a battle that lost Fred many friends in the Twin /;;ities. Still later in Now York Fulton cracked hlra out In four rounds, but that still showed that Flynu was a tough man to defeat. . Handled Flynn Easily. Dempsey took the big follow in Atlanta und handled him like a child and had him on the floor before Joo Woodman could look over the. sill ot the ring und obsorvo what was happon- A municipal golf course could easily be made a paying asset to the city, if the commis.sioner.s would only take the trouble to put it on a sound working basis. In Edmonton and Calgary, as far as I (an learn, they are a decided success and paying their way; If so why not in Lethbridge. In many of the cities in the Old Country where Ihoy have municipal cour.^es you will And they pay, even on the small charges that are made S.m playing over them, in the city of Glasgow, Scotland, there are throe courses kept up by the munic'pi-.lity (I have played over them ail.) They employ quite a staff of men to keep these coures in good playing order, yet they only, charge the nominal fee ot throe pence (six cents) for a round of IS holes. Of course no one expects to play golf in Western Canada on such a small fee. but 1 think if the commissioners were to take up the project seriously, get the advice and assistance ot one. or two of the experienced player.s and draw up proper regulations in regard to the use of the course and fees to be charged that in a very short time Lethbridge would own one ot the finest municipal courses in Alberta. Golf courses cannot be kept up without funds. There is a largo amount of necessary work to be done every year to improve and keep them in order, but the city council could do it cheaper and better than a private club can do. What I would like to see for next year is a small active committee composed ot enthusiastic players, men who know the game, appointed to take the matter up with the commissioners, men who are willing *o give a little of their spare time to help the scheme and before the opening�of the season, 1919 havo definite plans and arrange ments made so that they could start right away at the commencement of the year. I never have had any doubt about the idea ot a municipal golf course being made a good paying as set-besides an attraction-to this or any other city if started and carried out under thorough business management. It is not necessary for me to laud the praises of the game of golf. The amount of enthusiasm shown by the members ot the club during the past two years speaks for itself. With Mayor Hardie and Commissioner Freeman sucli enthusiastic and successful followers of the game, I hope to see the matter taken up seriously and satisfactory arrangements made, so that v.p will be able (o boast that we have a municipal golf course "second to none" id Western Canada. We are ahead of Calgary now with our putting greens. They have been wasting money trying to grow grass. We are saving it witli our sand and oil greens whicli are admitted to be very much superior. FLYING SERVICE (From Our Own Coi respondent) Blairniore, Aug. S.-Mrs. FItzslm-mons received a wire this week that her husband. Flight Lieut. Fitzsim-mons, was wounded In France. Lieut.

I would just like to draw the attention ot the commissioners to the state of tlie fairway at the fifth hole. Some fairway, is it not? Gee! Speak about bunkers! Play the game gentlemen and finish the job after' starting it. 1 don't know who is responsible, but give tlio players a decent chance of crossing the ditch with their usual third after liavig played two good Khots. In its present state, and witli l.'i players all playing to the hole at the one time as 1 saw one night this week, it ii awlul. I'Vir a few minutes It was a rather warm corner, you could feel tlie hot air and it smelt a littlo sulphuric.

Hundreds ot men f^nd women have become devotees of the game as a consequence ot having the time to play between the close ot business and dark. Reports from all Paciflc coast towns indicate that the game is fast grow ing in popularity, as attested by the completion recently of several more municipal links. The city links ot San Francisco now only lack one hole ot being a full course, and this is expected to be added shortly. Where, in the past, tho gallery of watchers following the play has not been very considerable except In the case of a match of some Importance between well-known players, the num erous Red Cross matches have bi'ought .out many persons to watch tho play who came tor the purpose ot helping the cause. This also has served to get many persons interested in the game, and many who came to watch have remained to try their hand at it, with the consequence that many recruits to the ranks ot the sport have been acquired in this manner.
