Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 15, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta '.THE LETIIBRIDGE DAILY ALL THE LOCAL AND WORLD'S FOREMOST LETHBRIDGE AQUATIC ASSOCIATION SCORED ANOTHER SUCCESS LAST NIGHT Weekly Water Carnival Brought Out Bi{ Canoe Races, Fine Diving and Tilting Contest Good wcaithcr and the prospect sion seeing some good sport brought o a tidy crowd to the LeHibridge Aqu 1io sports lake last night. T! events, which Consisted mainly canoe races which were all keen contested and the spectators after lidur-and-a-half of tome well pleased. Tho litst event on the list was th (our paddle canoe event nwdc up mo entries. Alter a hard and gan struggle in wKch their opponent made them fight every inch of th way the canoe containing Ridpat Wade, Butler and Edef, came in winner. They shipped nearly a boat load of water making the route. GREAT DIVE Toe next event was the long dive Donaldson, Marrion and Conibea were tho best. Donaldson -wended hi iy under water for the goodly dis tance of approximately seventy-fivi feet. This was an esceltent dive and was not equalled, though Marrion came dangerously close to the poll which narked the high mark scl by Donaldson.

They drifted across- the line, however easy winners. .NOVEL RACE The tail-end race next on the pro- gram, iurnished a lot of tun.. It is quite an art to paddle a canoe sil- ting at the. extreme .forward end the boat; the canoe has a habit whirling around and taking the most eccentric dives to the right and left which, ni.akes it hazardous lor the paddler and very funny' for the on- lookers. Three entries made the start in this event and the canoe propelled by Crawford was the first to cross after several exciting corkscrew man- oeuvres. Coaibear was second. MIXED TANDEM The most exciting race of the ev- rning-'g entertainment was the iadie: and gentlemen's tandem. Four canoes started together and "they all hut finished together. This was hilled as ibe feature event of the -program aud -the dope proved true. In iaot, the .quartette of canoes finished so close in a line that it- was hard to distin- guish the winner: However, the canoe hugging the shore was. seen to push its nose ahead of the rest in the ;list few'yards oi the stretch and the was conceded- to: the McDon-: aid-Jones tandem. There is a differ- ence of opinion who was second in spectacular event. The official judges credit -the Rkipath tandem for second, followed by Edey-Sage and Marrowman-Diseih teams, but Ulriag fthe concensus of opinion for a deci- the other three, after, the Mc- tandem had cleared the line, were so close that it might be declared a dead-beat for second hon- ors. 'ANOTHER FEATURE The nest event made interesting sport for the crowd. It.was a canoo tilting innatch. This consisted of two men in a'. canoe, one for paddling, tho other for tilting. The tilier has a tilting pole some fifteen feet long. It consists of a bamboo rod with a soft ball on the end about the size ol i cocoanut. Opponents armed1 in the iame manner arc sought out and a clash in mid-water is -the result. The one firsfc precipitated-into the drink loses and the victors go after anoth- er to treat in a like manner, if they are able. Crawford and McIIone came off -the victors in this test after some ixciting incidents in which three imes canoes were overturned and the occupants received a ducking.
