Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 22, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY, AUGUST.22, 1918 LIE IS 2] YEARS N BIG LEAGUES Is 57 Years Old, But is Still Successful Baseball Umpire I By Jack Velock. New York.--On the 19th da.v of this month. Bob Emslie, veteran National league umpire, will celebrate his 27th birthday in the mother league. Emslie, one of the most successful and consistent arbiters who has ever called a strike In the big leagues, is 57 years of age, but he is still there as a judge of play. Had the National league disbanded before August 19 Emslie would have been out of a job for the flrst time since he started as an umpire, and this alone is sufficient evidence of his class. The major league experience under Emslie's hat would fill a young library, and it would be an interesting library, too. But Bob is one of the nontalkative sort. He just goes about his umpiring, making a life-work of it, and says nothing about himself or the trials and triumphs he has encoimtered over a period of 27 seasons. Emslie was once a pitcher, like Hank O'Day. He got his start In Canada, for he haiis from that estimable town of Guelph, Ont., where he first saw the light on June 21, 1S61. He started out playing ball at a tender age, and soon became known as a crack semi-professional pitcher. I In 1S7S ho was signed by the Harris-' ton (Ontario) team, and in addition was given a hotel clerkship in Harrison, which at least meant bed and board. His salary ranged from ?1.50 to ?1.7B per game, and Bob was in his glory. He was a member of the same team that held title to the famous and original Tip O'Neil, and he was proud of it. Later he pitched for many other clubs, among them the Merritts, of Camden, N.J.; Toronto, Baltimore, and the old Philadelphia Athletics. He attained his height as a major league hurler with Philadelphia, and it war there that he finally lost his arm after a strenuous season in 1SS5. Two years later he began his career as an umpire in the International league, later he went to the old Western league and finally came into his own when he signed with the National league, 27 years ago. During hia career as an umpire Bob figures that he has rendered over 200.000 decisions which is something to live over and boast of. RESULTS AMERICAN Won. Boston ............ *8 Clpv eland .........

A. Galvin, the metropolitan woman golf champion. The following extract is taken from the report of the match: "The readiness ol the response to Auctioneer William A. Crocker's opting address nAist have been a surprise to the little Englishwoman who is doing her bit toward bringing the damnation of the Hun in raising money for ambulances by means of her skill with the golf sticks. 'What am I bid for the privilege of carrying Mrs. Gavin's bag?" shouted the amateur auctioneer. One thousand dollars was tbe reply. 'Another thousand here,' said another. And in just nine minutes by the watch the sum of $8,800, more than quadrupling the world's record before Mrs. Gavin's first appearance out here was bid for tho caddying privilege." � ROAMER BREAKS RECORD ?

The occupation of Lasslgny by tho army of General Humbeit, nqwspaper commentators believe, will facilitate tho capture of Noyon, toward which tho armies of General Mangin and Humbert are pressing steadily. Lasslgny was one of the pivots of the German system between the Somme and tho Olse and was defended most stubbornly. General Mangin on Wednesday continued to move toward tho Oiae. It the Gorman front there has not been pierced, as the Germans claim the [fronch aro trying to do. It has been bent back a considerable distance and It Is believed, may have to withdraw to tho Aliotte. Observers here see a new danger lor the enemy in the l^ltish attack north of the Ancro in the direction of Bapaume. The British already are on the battleground otl91G. Chasseurs "Took Lasslgny.
