SIR JAS. THOMSON IS PRESIDENT Alia. Aug. Cal- edonians had a complete triumph over Lethbridge 4ast night in the semi-final of the Alberta Provincial contest for the Bennett Shield win- ning by 5 goals to nil, before a crowd of. about five hundred. Lethbridge had never a gnost of a- chance and the whole hour and a half was spent by the Calgary men in a ceaseless bombardment of their opponent's goal. The man in goal, however, .was of a different calibre to the rest of the team, and the wayj he saved "was a treat to witness.

A scrimmage ensued at the goal mouth and this time the goal' keeper had no chance of saving, Tommy Stewart-doing the necessary. This was the first and only goal dur- ing the first half.
