FROM WILSON New York. - President Wilson's hearty endorsement of major league baseball came as a welcome bit of news to the baseball world in general. Talk of calling off the world's series, which was sot in motion by President Ban Johnson, of the American league, had a depressing effect on botli fans and players. Naturally, both the American and National leagues stand ready at any time to eloso their gates if by so doing they can aid the government. They would not consider any plan to work at cross purposes with regard to a request from Washington. But why anticipate the thing which would bo ono ot the greatest blows baseball could suffer? Birmingham will lose its star pltehor in September. That young man is Carmen Hill, who has been doing remarkably good work for the. southern city. So good, in fact, that the Pirates have decided to vecall him, for Hill belongB to them. The Optimist says, "Keep your troubles to yourself and HOPE for the best." We say, "If they are automobile troubles, bring them to us and GET the best/' We carry a complete line of Automobile Accenorlei, and have an Expert Mechanic in charge of our Repair Department.

Bijou Motor Parlors THE HOUSE OF SERVICE Fernle fight fans are banking on the best ncrap ever on Labor Day and are eagerly waiting to see the Canadian Ketchel In action. Thuy arc advertising the feature widely as one of the big events of a perfect day. With Yordy and Lcth-brldge's own Al Ross in action they will not be disappointed. Yordy is expected in Lethbridge next week and will train here for a short time before going to the big coal camp. Ross is already In training, and on the form shown in his fight with the Norway Boy he may be expected to give a good account of himself. The Labor Day sports at Fernle arc going to bring out a big field of contestants. For the hundred yard dash alone a purse of $100 has been hung up, split $50, ^30 and $20. It is expected that a number of Lethbridge sprinters will be on deck. Al Ross goes to Fernie Wednesday to train there for the bout. REAL SPORT The following account, of a baseball game Is taken from a weekly paper published in a small Minnesota village: "The visiting team looked like conquering heroes in their short pants, but our boys sailed right in, long pants paper collars and all. and finished them to a frazzle. Ye scribe had a good seat, where he could see the slaughter, also could view tho fair sex, of which our lovely village has more than its share of. The visitors had a smart Aleck city fellow for n pitcher, but his arm was as stiff us his biled .shirt before our boys got through with him, and they hit the ball so hard they busted the seams. They had a big fellow for catcher, but the ball didn't got past our boys' bats, not so you could notice it. Very few was hurt in the game, hut ye scribe got hit by a foul ball in the oyo and didn't see tho last two innings, which was played in (ho. rain, which made tho diamond and tho gamo kind ot nuissy. The game was umpired by Coroner Crane, of here, who was fair in his work, according to the visiting players, who didn't have much to say after they got laced. Our boys done good team work, and Itanco Haines, tho popular bookkoepor of hero, kept a straight score, which was 18 to 2, and could of been more if tho ball had lusted. After tho game refreshments was served by tho ladies of. the church and plenty to eat was hnd 'by. nil." Jewish boy. No man ever stopped into the ring who is cooler and who has courage moro sublime than tills same youngster, who comes from a race that some \ thought did not develop fighters. The welterweight champion Is Ger-shon Mondcloff, who adopted the ring nume of Ted (Kid) Lewis. lie was born in England, of Jewish parents, became a boxer at an early age. and swept through tho ranks of his rivals in fthiropo until he reached the absolute crest in his division. Then lie cume to America and repeated his brilliant performances. Lewis is a man absolutely fearless of physical harm; a dashing, slashing type of ring-ma n, who never backs away, no matter how often or how hard come the blows. Al McCoy is the middleweight champion. Ills real name is Al. Kn-dolph. Some folks refer to him as a "cheese champion" because he lacks in boxing skill and in hitting power. But Al has at least one indisputable asset-he has courage. 1 doubt if any man ever showed more of it than this same Jowi.sh boy from Boorklyn. McCoy Hard to Stop If you doubt the gameness of McCoy ask anyone who ever has seen him in a bout. Unaided by a superb defense, he has had to fake nearly everything that came his way. Many of tliet;e blown had a piledriver's force. They would have stopped ninety boxers out of a hundred. But McCoy took them all-and kept coming for more. That's an exhibition of courage and of tho lighting spirit that makes heroes. Barney Lebrowltss it; recognized as tho light heavyweight champion. That's tho real name of Battling Lev-insky. And he is the fourth of the Jewish crown wearers. I don't, recall tho name of any boxer who has fought more battles in a limited period than lias Lovlnsky. And ho has fought all who cared to meet him. When .he cleared his division ol foes he went far out of ids class in quest of matches-and lie got, them. Wants to Fight Willnrd Lovinsky, weighing 170 pounds or so, was- offered a matrh with Carl Morris senile time ago. And eagerly he took on Morris; who outweighed him 54 pounds; the same Carl Morris who many believe, is the only logical foe for Jess Willnrd. They can't come too big or too fast for Levinsky. Arid no man ever has made him stop, lie 1st game through and through. lie has been f-himorlng for a chance at Wil-lanl, who 'in;weigh:' him rlo.se to leo pounds. If the match was made I am sure the Battler would go through wllh it. despite the lerrillc handicap. The only man who ever knocked out Johnny Dundee was Willie Jackson (Oscar Tobfni a Jewish lie}'. Hanked among Leonard's most dangerous foes are Krankie Callahan, a Hebrew, and Charlie White, another Hebrew, whose real name is Charles Anchovitz. Ono of the outstanding middleweight^ just now is Soldier Hart Hold, a Jewish hoy, while some of the most promising youngsters in the bantam and featherweight divisions are of Jewish decent. Attell Stands Out No man ever hit me a harder blow or gave me a tougher fight than Joe Cliownski. And no man has lived who had greater courage; who could suffer more without, whimpering. And Joe was of Jewish parentage. Ask anyone who lias followed pugilism for forty years "who was the greatest featherweight of them all?" and the chorus undoubtedly will be "Abo Attell." Clever, courageous and clean-such a follow was A lie. II n name will ever be synonymous with "Master Kingman." Abe was of Hebrew parentage. Leach Cross was one of the greatest lightweights the game has produced. Leach was the product of New York's east Side. Handicap Wiped Out Back In the earlier days of pugilism a Jewish boy, upon entering the ring changed his name so that it would look to lie anything-but Jewish. He was afraid that if lie carried his real name into the world of boxing, it would be a handicap. Those were the days when people thought that lie-brews were not lighleis. But that, era has gone. The old idea has been shattered for all time. Not only have Jewish boys demonstrated that in gameness. skill and brains, they are as good as any boxing warrior, but in four out of tho seven clearly defined division:; I Ley have beaten down every opposition- and climbed to the absoluto crest.
