Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 17, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX THE^r^THBRlDGE DAILY HERALD SATURDAY, AUGUS*.J7.4918 "BRINGING UP FATHER" By G. McManus I The Sport Page Practice Ditferenl Sholt. For a beginner to improve his game It is necessary tliat lie should practice the different shots he wishes to play and carefully study them before attempting to do so. There are several shots which require more study than others, and these are I think, the shots to the green. They are the most valuable, and it is very important that they should be played with great accuracy and judgment. When going out to practice pick out an object to play at -any mark will do-it is not necessary to play on the putting green-but don't play at the same object all the time; change to something else and vary the distance and angle, it teaches you to judge more correctly. These strokes are very important and make the difference between a good score and a poor one. Different courses as a rule require different shots to reach the green and the player must be very careful and pay attention to what the ground is like before he plays the shot, as at first sight he may think that the correct shot to play is a pitch, but on examining the ground find that it will pay him better to run up. A player cannot be too careful about this service station henryjTdenn Proprlttor All Make* of Batterlea Charged and Repaired 311 7th Street 8. Phone 816 that is It he wants to obtain the best results. There is no satisfaction in playing a haphazard sort of game, you' may by chance or luck return a good score, but you know that it was not by playing golf that you did so I have always tried to impress on a beginner to first learn to play the shots . ho wants to know before worrying about returning a low score; once ho has mastered the different strokes, the score will come along In good time. No player can expect to Improve his game without practice, and lots of it, but he should not think because he plays 9 or IS holes every day in the week, racing around the conrse at break-neck speed without taking time to consider what shot ho should play or what club he should use that he is Improving his game. There is no harm in playing nulckly but to be .ouccessful the player must also thiuk quickly; yet 1 do not advise young players to hurry to get around the course. Keep your place on the green by all means but take your time; he players following are in duty bound to wait so long as you don't overdo it. I regret to mention that some of our local players have yet to learn the etiquette of golf. On some courses I have played over, if they were to .try the same stunt as they do here they would be ordered off. I fail to see what they gain by playing into a couple in front who are keeping their place as they cannot go through and must wait till the others hole out. It is poor sportsmanship and against all rules of the game. BASEBALL RESULTS AMERICAN Boston ..... Cleveland .. Washington New York . St. Louis ..

I think the local players ought to feel very well satis-lied with the results-to win both games, especially those who played for the first time in a match. Several good scores were returned, but the outstanding feature of the match was the very fine score of 33 for the first round returned by D. G. Mackenzie, Macleod. He played great golf-almost uncanny at some holes-but there were no flukes. Every shot was played for. I congratulate him on such brilliant work. It is a record that will stand for some time and will be difficult to beat. ANDY REPAIRS RADIATORS ALL WORK GUARANTEED. REAR DALLAS HOTEL (Upataira) PalaceGarage SECOND HAND CARS FOR SALE.

Aug. 16-"I never trained a faster horse than Flags," said Goorge Odom after tlio son of Whisk Broom II.-Inaugural had won the Maliopao handicap at Empire City. "I have had some fast ones too, including that old mare. Folly Levy, which ran like a streak when she felt like it, l)ut this gelding, B'lags, is certainly a runner. He has shown mo a quarter in twonty-two seconds in his work under favorable conditions, but not until tho ?iIahopac did he convince rao he is the fastest horse for a short distance in this country. "\\'hether he will bo anytiiing but a sprinter is doubtful, but in tlireo-iiuar-turs races lie ^as every qualification. Not only is he fast but he has class and handles his scale weight jusf tls handily as does a light impost. That lip is game was also demonstrated. He and Star Spangled had had a fight for iierxrly tiveeighths. ^)Ut when Lyke hit him with the whip about a hundred yards from the finish, he stepped right away from Star Spangled. Of course, it may have been that .Star Spangled was tiring a bit, but Flags seemed to jump away wlien he felt the cut of the whip. "This shows l^Iags had something left in him at the close, or he would not have responded so quickly. It is possible ho will turn out to be another Roseben. His only fault is at the start. He seems to dwell for a fraction of a second when the barrier Is raised, and thereby loses ground. But he Is so fast he soon makes it up. Yet this habit may cause him to lose races, as be may not get clear sailing at all times." According to the official timer, the fraction of an eighth which constitutes the "about" on the Empire course, was run in nine and three fifths seconds and the next eighth, which is up grade, was covered in 22 seconds. The entire distance,was run in 1.08 2-5, the lasi Ave eighths being reeled off in 58 4-5v which, while It will not he recorded as a record, is the fastest five-eights ever run over the Empire track. The record is one minute fiat, made by James Butler's Gnat in 1914, and equaled again in 1917 by J. Livingstone's American, the latter carrying 115 pounds and Gnat 102. Flags carried 126 pounds In his race. Ray Bronson, the former claimant of the welterweight championship, who has been promoting boxing shows and managing a string oi. boxers in Toledo, Ohio, has quit the game for the duration of the war, And will confine himself to work In the shipyards at that place. Ray saw the handwriting on the wall and did not wait for orders, but took his boxers with him and reported for work at the yards. Ray is just past the draft age. He started fighting In 1905, and quit the game about two years ago, although he had not done much fighting after his second trip to Australia. It was Bronson who gave Packoy McFarland the scare of his young life in 190D at New Orleans. They were matched to fight 2U rounds, and in the first round Ray used the famous pivot turn (on his heel) and caught Packey a beautiful wallop on the point of the jaw. It put the clever Packey down for the count of nine, and luckily for him it camo near the end of the round. Pat Kennnaly worked over Packey like a Trojan and sent him put for the second to cover up and fight on the defence only. Bronson was so flustered by his near knockout of Packey that he could not convince himself that the famous Chicago boxer was so near dreamland, and he fought carefully. That is just what Packey wanted and he got through the round all right. He stalled for five more, and that is what saved him. They went the 20 rounds to a draw. When Ray made his first Australian trip in 1910-11 he fought off his stride for the reason that he permitted himself to gain too much in weight. Ho was not afraid to work, however, as ha proved on board the boat from Sydney to London. Ray got into an argument about stoking' in the ship's hold and on a bet agreed to work eight hours, in shifts of sleep two and work two In the hold of the giant ship Osterly, and, like others, stripped to the waist, he worked as he never worked before nor since, for the eight hours. He won his bet, but after finishing the job he retired and never awoke for over 20 hours. "Never again for me," said Ray after he awakened from his long slumber. One thing in his favor-he Is not afraid to work. For Expert Repair Work your Car to us MOTOR PARLORS, LTD. "THE rtOUSE OF SERVICE" Vii^mtmHmtmmfmiamm INTERNATIONAL LEAGUE Toronto 7, Rochester 5.

PATOOYLE WER GOLF SHOT Chicago, Aug. H.^Despite tho numerous rules of golf, a situation frequently arises in an Important match that, cannot be satisfactorily, decided under tho letter of golfing law. Many decisions are made by inverse deduction from the precepts of the game. For example, one rule provides that after ihe ball Is in play, nothing fixed or growing shall hi! moved, bent or broken, except in taking the stance, or in.tho regular swing at the ball. This is hold to forbid practice strokes after tho player leaves the tee. Another rule, which came up for decision at a recent Red Cross tourna-m'ent at the Uiilgumour Country club and not being doclded, caused Pat Doyle, of Deal, N.J., to cut away a tree branch with his niblick, provides that nothing shall ho done to improve the lie of a ball in all hazzard. The compilers of tho rules probably did not figure on tho contingency of finding a tree limb, blown off by a storm In tho precincts of a bunker. That svas wiiat Doyle encountered when his long dilvo from the 13th tee found a bunker. A storm, which liad intorruptod the play had blown a leafy branch of a nearby oakJnto tho trap. Doylo was barely able to sea his ball under tho limb. While some of the onlookers thought the limb might be romovert under u rulo which provides for dropping tho hall away from a hole rnado by tho greenkeeper from ground opened for repair, Doyle do-cldod to play the ball as It lay.

That has been the plan followed by the suc-copaful ones, according to those who seem to know, and that Is probably why Duke Kahanamoku, the world's champion swimmer, never tried to take up any other lino in sports outside of swimming, v,'hlch he learned In his native Hawaii. The Duko has tho ideal build for a heavyweight fighter, but outside of enjoying the sport from a distance, ho has never mixed In it. The wonderful short distance swimmer stands a bit over six feet and scales, in condition, around 185 to 190 pounds. Ho has a splendid pair of shoulders and. a longer reach than Jack Dempsey, tho challenger of Fred Fulton and Joss Wtllard. There is no doubt that the duke would bo a very apt pupil, for during a talk on the subject last week he gave a fine illustration of how Dempsey and others boxed, going through the\ shadow ho.xing stunts like a veteran. "I would not care to be a boxer or fighter," said the duko, "but I like the sport. While in Australia I attended many of the big matches at tho Sydney stadium, but asldo from enjoying them the same as other spectators, I had not the slightest inclination to take up the sport for exercise or profit. I have had many other sporting people and writers toll me that I would make a good boxer, but swimming is my strong point and that is what' I win stick to. From what I have seen of boxing. It strikes me as being a splendid exercise for athletes of al kind.'?, also swimming, but I find thn, swimming alone ' has done much for mo and my muscles have always been flexible and free from "bunching" as win often be found among athletes who adopt a more strenuous course of training. I might make a great boxer but 1 doubt It, for It is seldom that u man will become a champion, In two .-iporls so dlfCorcnt In style and execution as swimming and boxing. No, I will stick to tho water!" FLATTERY AIDS TV IN TRICK Coaxed Benz Off With Sweet Words, Then Tagged Him. In a game between the White Sox and Tigers, Ty Cobb, playing first base, trapped Joe Benz off tho hag after the Chicago pitcher had singled. A little flattery did the trick. "You show much Improvement." said Cobb, strolling up to Benz with tho ball under his arm. "You know I think you're going to make a batter. I like the way you stand up at tho plate." Joe forgot all about everything else and strolled off the bag. Cobb promptly tagged him and Joe was called out, much to his discomforture.
