It the hall lad hopped a little higher it would lave smashed my specs and blinded lie." The American league's most dim- sun fields are in the parks at Chicago. Hostoli, St. Louis, Detroit! and Philadelphia. How Sam Craw- ford playing the garden, in Detroit for ages has managed to-keep above the mark is one of the wonders or assigned to other fields veterans da- "Wlieii I first tried the sunfield in 1909 I looked like a big said Hooper.

Tho City Bowling League tinishes up its schedule next Tuesday night i the postponed game between 'the Oiantb and the Mercs will -be j pulled off. Until that time Secretary ITommp Evans absolutely refuses to j figure out the averages for the league, so the fans can go without the dope until then. The alley management bung nn a, couple of turkeys for the week's high] scores. The way the trnndlers wcntj utter the birds indicated a desire to "turkey out." The big game of the basketball season comes on Tuesday night next when the ''Y" and the G. X. quintet tangle in what will be the deciding mix-up of the league. These two teams have met twice before, with honors even. The grain dealers won the firat encounter with two, points to spare. The "Y" took the sec- ond name by a score of 29-27. If the "Y" wins on Tuesday, they will cop the league honors. If the G. X.'wins, they will be tie with the "Y" for first place and a play-off game will have to be ar- ranged. Incidentally the result of the game will pretty well es- tablish-the matter of precedence In picking players to represent Lethbridge in .the Southern Al- beria Basketball League which is now in process of organization.

It is just as important that you use a soap which, of itself, does not irritate the skin. ivory Soap being free from alkali and. all strong chemicals, cleanses without injuring even the tender skin of a child. It is so mild and pure that it leaves the skin soft, smooth and therefore in the best possi- ble condition to withstand the sharp wind and the biting frost.
