This Is a single game average of 163. The Herald crew, which got away to a poor start, pulled up strong at the end. finishing second with 11.60C so the Mercs won hy 033 pins on the total The Herald average was 2321 pins per match, or 777 per game.

"Youns" Maxwell, who has been spending the past couple of weeks here, leaves today to meet Benny Haskell in Moose Jaw on Dec. 19th. Maxwell has been working out in Young gym over the Alberta Cafe for several days, and though he has done little ring work for months, he showed that he knows the game. His fight with Haskell will show just how good he is, and if his showing is up to the mark, there will be IK- tie difficulty in lining up a good match here between him and Harry Anderson. Frank Mantell and Eddie Franks will go to Calgary tonight for the boxing bouts there Friday night. Both boys have been work- ing hard and the Calgary fans are due to see some smoke. Franks in particular will open the eyes of the Covt Town bugs. "Blackie11 more than Mitchell, 100 fights who has under his belt, blew in from the threshing crew at Raymond yesterday. The snow put threshing on the blink, and "Blackie" is headed for the States. When he heard that his friend Cohen would meet Ross here on Dec. 20th, Blackie decided to remain over. Mean- while he may train with Ross, and help to put the local boy in shape for both matches ahead of him. Blackie was in Cohen's corner in the last Ross-Cohen match and is a great admirer of Durable Ike. However he wants to see Ross beat Weeks and it may be that he will stick around until after the 27th. "I trained Sailor Grande when he beat Weeks in 20 rounds, and I think I could help Ross was the way the husky little scrapper put it. He declares it will be some match and be can't make up his mind to miss it. Mitchell is down to box Sam Kerns in Calgary to- morrow night but didn't know anything about it until he hit the burg yesterday. However it is likely he will make the trip with the other Lethbridge boys. Friday night Is the night Weeks meets Benny Rolands in Winni- peg. The result of the match there will show Billy's condition for his match'with- Ross. (SDculiil b> HevMi Maerath. Dec. luis lust eomu through from the militia depart- ment that Pte.
