Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 28, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD Wednesday, August 28,1912 GRIDIRON GAME TO BE PLAYED HERE Rugby Cfob Formed at Y.MX.A. Last Night and Everything Looks Rosy for its Success Arrange Game With Taber for Labor Day--The English Rules Adopted-Practice Tonight V v That the great fall grid-iron game, tugby, has at last been set upon substantial basis which will 'guarantee its success here, seems to be the impression of all those who attended the meeting last night in the parlors of the V.M.CA. when a large and representative throng of stalwart and buxom youths gathered together to give the game a start in Lethbridge that would establish it here for good. It was one of the largest and most enthusiastic crowds that has ever turned out to an organization meeting of any branch of sport here. : Ifrbe salient points decided on were:1 Adoption of English rules and teethods. Barracks grounds for practice and playing matches. Practice nights, Tuesdays and Fridays 6.30 sharp. Invitation wide cpen. Game here Labor Day with Taber If it can be arranged. First practice tonight to pick team. ENGLISH RULES BEST NOW The adoption of one or the other of English, Canadian or American rules has always been an ugly question to decide by those who have attempted to promote rugby here and this point has been no small factor in keeping the game down. There are players nnd exponents of each one of these methods of playing the game who contend, of course, that their style is the best. The English and Canadian factions, especially, have been wont to combat this issue. At last night's meeting the question was again paramount, but this time it .was happily settled amicably. W. Poapst, who seems to be thoroughly conversant with all rugby rules, but is probably more strongly identified with the Canadian game, came forth with an appeal for the adoption of the English style, and the result was that the latter was accepted by the meeting as the best. It was pointed �ut by Mr. Poapst that the English game was the most favorable because there was more talent to be had for the teams here, and it has always been a lack of this important factor that has done as much as anything else to prevent the proper inception of the game here. There are probably five English rugby players in Leth bridge to every Canadian player and that the English game should be accepted was conclusively shown. However, it is not the most popular game in Western Canada. The league embracing Calgary, Edmonton, Moose Jaw, Regina and other western cities, play the Canadian game and when the time is ripe for Lethbridge to join the ring the Canadian game will have to be adopted here. This fact was voiced at the meeting and it was generally conceded that the latter game would come in its own time and in accordance with the demand. PLAY ONI BARRACKS The Y.M.C.A. has the free use of the barracks grounds for its sports, and with the grounds so advantageously located it behooved the club to sail under Y.M.C.A. colors and make use of them, which was readily adopted after a little discussion. PLAY TABER A game with Taber may be played here on Labor Day and Secretary Gil-more was instructed to communicate with the club in that town immediately so that all arrangements may be made without delay. The first practise of the season will be held tonight in order that the committee may be able to get a line on the probable make up of the team if a game with Taber is arranged. All players are requested to be at the Y.M.C.A. building without fail at 6.30 sharp. Hon. Pres.-iW. A. Buchanan, M.P. President-I?. Wood. Vice-Presidents-Dr. Stewart, M.P. P., H. J. Skeith, C. J. Eckstorm and E. A. Cunningham. Secretary-V. R. Gilmore. Committee - Messrs. McGillis, Poapst, Dunphy and Lloyd.

Toronto, Oat., Aug. 27.-President Murphy today received a reply from Sir Richard McBrlde, one of the trustees, to his challenge for the Minto cup oa behalf of the Cornwall National Lacrosse union. Sir Richard states that the challenge baa been accepted and that the matter of dates played in the hands of the British Columbia association, to be arranged when the leagues are ready. The fans around the American league circuit have waited patiently for the Washington team to slump, but up to the pMsent there has been nothing doing in the slump line. Callies 2 goals; St Andrews 1 goal. This was the outcome of the first round of the Wright Charity Shield at the ball park last evening between these teams. The Callies won the toss and sent the Saints to play against a heavy gale blowing from the west end of the field. It was quite plain that good football would be out of the question and in consequence both teams contented themselves with long shots for goal. The Callies were taking matters easy, in fact too easy, with the result that the Saints lost no time in forcing them to extend their tactics. After some fifteen minutes if play Lining sent in an easy shot which fooled the Saints goalkeeper. The game was listless and lacked interest although the Saints were having a fair share of the play. On one occasion the Saints had a glorious chance to score but only palpable nervousness on the-part of the forward line spoiled their efforts. However, towards the close of the first half they succeeded in sending the sphere past Bob Tenant, who was roosting peacefully in the Callie goal but the whistle had sounded previously tor offside and the tally went for naught. On resuming with the wind behind the .Saints rushed the Callies for all they were 'worth but' the pace was itco much for them and try ae they would they could" not pierce tho Scots' defence. Through the efforts of his mates Lining of the Callies again secured possession and piloted the ball past the Saints' goalkeeper for goal number two. Later the Saints' goalie turned cleverly aside a "beautiful shot from Tenant's boot at the expense of a corner which caused no damage. Bob Tenant in the Callie goal got his first shot to save which brought him to bis knees. He was there on the spot and cleared his charge amid the cheering of the spectators-. .... 0.02 Carrots, per lb..............0.02 Turnips, per lb....... ........ 0.01 Butter and �08*:' Dairy butter ..................  - �� Live spring chickens, per lb Fowl ......................
