Sport, to be carried on successfully, depends on two things at least, a place for those who play the games and a place for those who watch. For it is well known that the success of sports from the standpoint of finances and enthu- siasm and skill depends on the num- ber and enthusiasm of spectators. Hockey is the premier Canadian winter game from the popular stand- point, and there seems to no game that can take its place as a winter sport. But hockey is at a great dis- advantage in Southern Alberta. In fact, nature seems to have made a. dead set on fcockey, curling or any ice game in rhis country. But though at a disadvantage, hockey in South- j ern Alberta is not an impossibility. The first essential, granting of course, those who want to get into the game, is ice. Most towns havej to depend on open-air rinks, but these j are not satisfactory, not so rnucii be-! cause of the temperature but because of the dust. Ice out here lasts bet-j ter in warm weather than it does] down east. If it is enclosed it will' withstand the kcat of warm spells.; But the winds carry dust which, set-j tling on the ice, destroys it veryj quickly or makes it unfit for use. A closed rink is therefore necessary from, the standpoint of the skaters. But even mbre so spectators ofj hockey matches, which are necessary to keep the game going need shelter. Last summer an unsuccessful effort was made to get a covered rink go-i inr, but the money was not forth-! coming. The best way to get money always is to show the need of it. and the best time to do this is when it is most needed. Lethbridge needs; a skating rink and needs it badly and j never so badly as at the present time. The efforts of the hockey boys should be encouraged in every pos-j sible way. They are up against thej difficulties mentioned, but if they per- severe against the odds and give the public some idea- of what could be accomplished if conditions were better, there is no doubt but what the sporting sympathies, as well as the sympathies tbe public has forj young men and good healthy sport i be quickesed and the money will be forthcoming.
