Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 16, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX FRIDAY, AUGUST 16,1918 "BRINGI-iG UP FATHER" By G. McManus The Sport Page Tomoprow, Saturday evening, If Jupiter Ptuviu*, who has been visiting us rather frequentiy of late will permit, the local ball team will stage a game for the edification of the fans with a Taber aggregation. The locals have not been going very good lately, but they are out to retrieve their reputations and wind up the season In a blaze of glory. Two or three more games are to be arranged on the local diamond before the season draws to a close. Just who will pitch tomorrow remains to be seen, but the locals will have a strong team behind the man in the box, and hope to stage one of those ding-dong games which had the fans going wild before the stampede. The recent rains have softened up the diamond, and n good game should result. Owinq to the shortening evenings the game will start at 6.30 in order to play the full nine innings, and get away before the opening of the Chautauqua. Saturday evening at 6.30.

"THE HOUSE OF SERVICE" FIELDER JONES BIG DRINKER St. Louis ball players wore dls-cussint' the peculiarities of Fielder Jones as a manager. "Most nervous guy I ever saw," said one player. "Always got no and took a drink ot water wlien iliero was an important play on. Don't soo iiow ho held it all In some iiavd games with lots of close plays. "I remomher In a game at Bo.'ston. One of our men was caught on th!rd or It looked like ho' had been cauglit and tagged. Jones got up, llUed tlie glass from the water holtle jind gulped it down and started to swear. The third baseman, after makin,'; Ills stab w4U'.fiJ weak on throwing and batting, and spent hours In perfecting the plays, going over and over each play as it would come up in a game," said Fujii. "In order to awing tho bat In lino we had batting pralBtlce In,swinging. : A lighted candle was placed at tho proper height, anil we practiced swinging tho bat until we made the Hamo just nicker. This was done repeatedly so that wo got'the proper! swing.  "When I made my record In the polo ! vault I had taken core to have a so-lected pole which was treated for four , years boforo being used. The wood : was Bolected, cut, drlod and thorough-; ly prepared. It had tho advantage over' the American poles which was quickly : seen, and I was deluged with letters i asking mo how tho poles were made." Style Similar to Kumagae'l^ PuJIi has visited many quartert tho globe. Ho has taken part In al-, most overy form of athletics and enjoys ii good game of tennis at which; ho is particularly adept. Hla style' ot play is similar to that ot-Ktima-gao's in that he uses tho sweeping ground stroke from back court. His gamo at tho not Is sound and bcou- . rate, nnd with some practlco.-although he has not played tennis for tyvo years , ho could give tho best playeffe in ilila city au oxcollont argument."
