Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 22, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta TUESDAY, AUGUST 22, 1916 THE LF.THBniDGF. DAILY HERALD World "Serious" Tomorrow; Warner Plays Champion Her 'Phans' and bugs who stroll 10 Eck- Itorm park tomorrow nftornonu at 5.30 should fiee sonio uf the best brand of hall pulled otf this year, when War- ner and Champion mobilize their forc- es to contest for tlio 1510 champion- ehip of. Southern Alberta. Tomorrow IB a halt-holiday and there Is no other form or entertainment for the evening. That should be enough to sissurc a big crowd. The calibre of ball played by the two Icams this year has been all to the merry. Warner is coming in hacked by a squad of rooters a mile loilfi. while Champion has a following all through the territory north of Lethbrldge and will bring plenty of support. With a big crowd from Lothbridge playing "neutral" there should be big doings in the old ball yard. Don't forget that the game comes off. at 5.30. Nine Teams Have Chance To Win The World's Series New York Six American league teams are separated by virtually the same number of points as are three National league teams and the world's championship Is the possible achieve- ment of any ot the nine clubs. The American race tightened last week. In the National league there was not much change among the leaders ex- cepting that Philadelphia moved Into second place, sending Boston to third. Boston retains the American lead by ft slightly greater margin that at the beginning of. the week. Fewer games were played than usual, because of open dates. The Red Sox had a four- game battle with Chicago, winning the first two games, one a 16-innlng af- iair and losing the last two. Boston also broke oven in two games with Washington, hut on Saturday won from Cleveland. The White Sox went into third place Sunday, but regained second Friday, after "Cleveland lost three straight games lo New York. Cleveland began the week well, but started the last eastern trip poorly against New York, the Yankees winning every game. New York made the best advance of any team in the league, winning five straight from Philadelphia and Clove land, but losing Saturday to Chicago St. Louis and Detroit managed to keep within striking distance of the leaders. Wednesday the western teams start on their last eastern trip. The national race appears to have narrowed down to three teams with Brooklyn having the best chance with Its strong hold on first place and the steadiness of its pitching staff. Bos- ton's pitchers are erratic and Phila. delphia has only one consistent box man, Alexander. The last western Invasion by the eastern teams for 1316 began Thurs- day. The international results for the three days were: East 6, west 6. DOES THIS MEAN Aro you one of the many who arc suffering with eczema, obstinate sores, ulcers or any other skin trouble?
