Sending Strong Athletic Team Six Y.M.C.A. athletes will journey to Fernie next Monday to participate In the Labor Day sports in that city. Among them will be Marcus Ounsworth and Packard. Dunsworth has his eye on the big prize for the 100 yards dssh and the man that wins will have to travel to beat him. Young Ross has decided to leave for Fernie on Thursday, and will train in public from then until Monday. Ross Will be in better shape than he was for the stampede bout here. ', Art Yordy, who will be Ross' , opponent in the Fernie bout, will \ arrive in Lethbridge from Great Falls on Thursday evening if everything Is carried out according to schedule. Sporting Editor Barratt of the Great Falls Tribune is looking after the interests of the promoters of the bout at that end. Mr. Barratt states that Yordy is ready to put up the scrap of his young career and he looka for nothing worse than a draw. BATTERY WANTED One of the features of the Etzlkom fair tomorrow will be a ball game between Orion and Etzikom. These teams had practically suspended business for the year but got together for the big game. EUikom wired the sporting editor yesterday asking if a good battery could be found here to go out on the special tomorrow morning to help them out. It was impossible to locate the needed pitcher and catcher, but if anyone cares to go out to do the heaving and receiving they-will be welcomed with open arms. The special leaves Lethbridge tomorrow morning at seven. Eddie Plank is at his home in Gettysburg, Pa., preparing to take a long rest. He confirmed the announcement that ho has retired from baseball. He will be 42 years old the latter part of this month. Plank has been pitching baseball in the big leagues since 1901. He started with the old Athletics, and with the exception of Rnbo Waddell was tho greatest left-hander pitcher that ever performed.

Princess Mary, Prince  + Albert, Princess Christina, *  Princess Marie and Princess  �0� Louise were present.    As it is generally conceded now that the Giants will capture tho championship in tho National league and either Chicago or Boston in the American, it is but, natural to start speculation as to the comparative strength of the teams that are likely to bo contenders in the world's series. In the east, where they have a chance to see both leagues play and thus get a line on the relative strength of the probable contenders, they say that whilo the Giants would have a great chance to defeat the White Sox, they doubt if McGraw's aggregation could down the Red Sox. Boston Has Five Strong Pitchers The reason for their belief is that Boston has five pitchers, now that Foster has come back, who have been through the world's series mill and have shown themselves to be most capable "money" pitchers. In fact, the entire Boston team is one that plays the best when backed up against the wall in a series in which there is much at stake. They have demonstrated that in the last two series when they trounced the Phillies and Robbins. The style of a game adopted by Boston and adhered to throughout the season, the one-run game, is the very best for a short set-to like the world's series. The Red Sox stuck to It most faithfully when meeting Philadelphia and Brooklyn and were not sorry.; Playing everything safe, they just plugged away, trusting to their own1 defense to hold while that of their rivals crumpled. It never failed. Chicago Is Erratic Chicago plays much the same style of a game, but it has not the reliable defense of Boston. Its pitchers are practically as good, but the team aa a whole is more erratic than Boston, and in a world's series a club must not be erratic. Conceding, however, that Boston would be the stronger champion in a post-season series, Chicago might also walk away with the decision from the Giants, because it must be remembered that not only is the American league a stronger circuit than the National, but the White Sox *ave a bunch of "sailor ball" pitchers who use a delivery the Giants have not had a chance to hit against. Should they stack up against Cicotte, Danforth and Williams in a world's series, thoy will be stacking up against a delivory with which they are unfamiliar and in a series of only seven games that is likely to prove quite a handicap. The Giants, however, will give the American leaguers considerable of a battle, for not only has McGraw a powerful team, one that has a punch, with such players as Herzog, Fletcher, Zimmerman, Burns, Kauff and Robertson, but he also has Home Tery competent southpaws in Ferdle Schupp, the sensation of the National league, Benton and $allqe and it ia a well kppwn fact that neither Boston or Chicago looks any too good agaluit an effective left handw, If there is any one thing that will save the ducks from slaughter this year, it will be the high cost of munitions. Shells have been doing a Zeppelin glide during the past few weeks, and a case of shells which would cost $19 a few weeks ago is now rated at $23. And that doesn't seem to be the end of it. It will be necessary again tor all shooters to secure licenses. These may be secured from game wardens, at most of the hardware stores, and from the A.P.P. Tho daily bag limit for ducks is 30, and for the season 200. There Is no limit on geese. The honkers are protected this year for the first time. Up till this year there was no closed season on geese, but the new regulations provide an open season only from September 1st till Dec. 15. Tommy Ott of Raymond, has secured the shooting privileges of the season at Eighteen-Mile Lake, and is erecting a shooting lodge. Those who bring bedding may sleep there and meals will be served. Shooting tickets for the season will be sold. BERRY OBLIGED A FRIEND Claude Berry of the Kansas City Blues is wondering where he gets off. Jimmy Viox getting his semi-monthly pay check for $100, got Berry to cash it because he was in a hurry to Jump home. Then Manager Ganiel, incensed at Viox's taking leave, fined him $150 and stopped payment on the check at the bank. It's up to Berry to find out how he Is to get his money. Ray Chapman of the Cleveland Indians and Roger Hornsby of the Cardinals are setting the pace for the shortstops In the two major leagues this season in slugging, stealing bases and scoring runs. On top of this, both players are putting up a wonderful game in the field and both rank with the best hitters in, their respectiTO leagues. Chapman, up to mid-season, staged a hot race with Bobbie Roth one of his team mates, for the base stealing honors in the American league, while Hornsby ranks among the ten leaders in thieving bases in the mother circuit. � �. , In the matter of slugging the ball Hornsby ranks in the select set with Cravath, Cruise, Wheat and Rousch, while Chapman has been holding his own among the leading sluggers in the American league. The mid-season averages showed Chapman fifth among the run-getters of his league, with Hornsby topped by Burns and Paskert in the National.
