CALLIES WEDNESDAY The replayed semilinal for the Scott Cup win bo played on Wednesday, at Adams park. This was Ueelded :ii the league meeting last niglii. A good game is assured. Kct'v t"e date open. In The Major Leikgues NATIONAL ^ ^ - In the 60!;iif;iinl for the Scott Cup lilayed last nigbc ui Eckstorm, the Oaflies �?rere able to keep the ^'ets 'from Bcoring, the game resulting iu a � corelesa draw. This will mean still another game, i^Vidng fonr necessary to decide the i semi-finals. Since St. George's were \ ^ut out of the running, general opinion ]pnt North lethbridge and the Vets  in tbe final game, but much better ' football will be necessary H the Vets are to appear in the final. Although they had the best of the game, there i were times Tvhen the Callies threat-�ened their goal quite dangerously, and it iraa anybody's ^ame till the finish. The Vets kicked off, and within one minute had made Charles step .lively, going Tight through, and fin- ishing with a great shot by Knox, which hit the top of the upright. The Vets continued the pressure. Kobti-tson getting within scoring dist.ince and putting behind. With a dash the Cal-lies -tt^ent to the other end, and Mc-Farland centred prettily to Mcllvena. who almost scored. Both sidts shared in the attack, the play quickly changing from end to end. One splendid shot by McFarland dropped right on the goal line. Mcllvena breasted to Dunlop, who luckily got the ball clear. This was probably the only real thrill In a featureless game. Both Dunlop and Charles made good saves, but the attack on eadi side did not show much life. The Vets were without Linning, and the Callles played without^ Colqu-houn at centre forward, and tfieir absence was particularly noticeable. fBUROETT WALLOPS MONARCHS fMedicine Hat News.) The Medicine Hat lacrosse team journeyed to Lethbridge yesterday and trimmed tbe home team with a score of three to two. Fonr goals were.actually scored by the Hatters but one was disallowed owing to its being scored a^er the referee had atoppad the ^ae for a-tout The game was played under the now mle^ /wbereby players can be snb-stitated each quarter, a ruling that nutkea-fora last game. The Katters, it anjrthing, had the edge on their opponents and deserved the victory iWhIch they epcar^d, Efforts are bieing made to have the winners of the south play the winner iOt the Calgary and Edmonton game. Medicine Hat and Ijethbridge having won a game each a farther game must be played between them to decide who yrill meet the champions of the northi f 'Mr. Clark of Lethbridge made an efficient referee.

M'lX.VIPEG, Aug. 13,-That the proposed lacrosse tournament to settle the amateur chainpionshlp of Canada will be held in Winnipeg, Saturday Aug. 30 and Monday Sept. 11. was practically decided upon at a ' meeting of the Winnipeg Lacrosse Association last night. With the entry of the Foundation team of Victoria, probable champions of the i Pacific coast league and word from the president of the Ontario league that the winners of that league would likely make the trip, the local officials decided to go ahead with the project. The Winnipeg league is guaranteeing expenses to a certain limit for the visiting teams, hoping to revive the game here and settle the dispute for the Mann cup. Trustee Lally has been asked to allow the Mann cup to stand for the [ championship, but if this cannot bo d.on6 a new cup will be offered and It will represent the "championship of Canada. ARE AFTER TWO Won. Lost. Cincinnati...... 70 n New York...... 01 37 � Gentlemen: ......... I wish to congratulate- you on your splendid achievements in the field of sport during the season-of 1919. The formation of tbe lacrosse clubs Is specially noteworthy, for lacrosse is a great game when well played. I have one fault to find with our lacrosse teams, however, and that is, we haven't enough of th&m. I am sure the Thistles and the Shamrocks must grow weary of the monotony of playing against each other week after week. I suggest we raise two more teams in North Lethbridge. We have scores of splendid athletic young fellow.s who don't play either baseball'or football, and I feel sure they would be only too glad to join a lacrosse team If they were asked. In regard to a lacrosse ground for North Lethbridge, the eouth half of Adams Park is ot no use to either man or beast, moreover it lias long ceased to be ornamental, with its patch of dead shrubs in the centre. Hair a dozen energetic men can fix up this ground in a few hours, including tearing up dead trees, filling in the -walks with soil and erecting the goal posts. The north half of the park can be kept for football exclusively, for when the various teams are not playing there, the kiddies are practicing football all thc^ time. I asH the co-operat'.on of the Rev. Mr. Hodgins and tbe vicar of St. Mary's church in this matter, also the members of their respective congregations. We all realize the value of a healthy mind in a healthy body. Now. you executive ot the L.A.A.A., j please hdstle and buy ',26 lacrosse bats for our North Lethbridge boys and we'll do the retst. Sincerely, J. L. FITZGERALD. Stalling and Barrow Being Handed Same Medicine As Lee Fohl BROKE LEG IN FOOTBALL GAME MEDICINE HAT, Aug. 14.-The rir.si accident ot the tooiball season happened last night at the Athletic park when Joseph A. Outtou, of the Redcliffc football team, in the Mc-Clcllan cup game had the misfortune to have both bones of his right leg broken just above the ankle. This was bis first game with tbe visiting team. He was endeavoring to take the ball away from Beaeley, one of the local backs, when the accident occurred. First aid was rendered by his com-rade.s, after which ho was taken to the local hospital. He will probably be laid up for several months. At the same time Waters, another Hedcliffe forward, collided with Mog-ridge and waa winded. NEW YORK, Aug. 14.-The fans who so ably combed Lee Fohl out of a job as manager of the Cleveland Indians, are now out after the scalp and other accoutrements of Geprge Stalling and his American league rival, Ed Barrow, of the Red Sox. Not the same fans, of course, hut the same kind of fans-rough and determined, fans who strive to manage ball cluba from grand stands. Stallings has a contract that will not expire until next year. But George Washington Grant is said to be laying plans that will entail tlie departure of Stallings before that^^-tifae. provided he can induce the xmii of bis choice to step into Stallings' place. *B a "Miracle Man," Stallings has been somethig of a bust since his sensational performaiTce in 1914. His club is of the same old ughtlng type, but the execution, of great effort isn't there. The club's pitchers are only alleged pitchers, and from the days before Stallings, the team has never had an outfield. Tbe catching Jtaft is shot to pieces, and the Infield is only a fair one, although it ip the .best part of the machine. Maranville is still Maranville, and Red. Smith is tbe same heavy-hitting, aggresive player he was when he played such great part in the drive of the 1914 Braves. Barrow's trouble lies in the tact that the world's champions slumped easily into a second division berth this year and the fans accuse Barrow of being responsible through unwise trading and selling last winter. They forget that Barrow's pitching staff has been shot to pieces, and that it was mainly a pitching staff which carried tbe old Red Sox to pennante and world's championships. Barrow turned Babe Ruth Into an outfielder, thereby depriving himself of a pitcher who could win 25 garoe-s a year. Joe Bush developed a very lame arm early in the spring a:nd it never has yielded to treatment. These two stars alone, if in proper working order would have had tbe club in the first divi.iion. --------"---*~Mnr-r-' r ? S- � � � CRICKET ? <  ? ?*<?:?  LONDON.
