Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 17, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY, DECEMBER 17. 19M THE LETHMUDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE THREE Has American Football Faded for Rough Play-rPortland Scribe Gives Witty Expression of How Canadian National Game Appeals to Rose City Patrons HocUcy has made a remarkable im- pression In the cily of Portland, Ore. Portland bus a team entered hi the Pacific Coast league, along with Van- j oouver and Victoria. The first league match was played about a week aso j in the Kose City, and the patrons of j the game, for the greater part, receiv- ed their first taste 'of the great Can- adian, game. TUo sport writer ot the Portland Telegram gave an exageerat-1 ed, but clever and humorous, account When Stores are Dear And remember that every bottle of Bovril contains the nourishment and- -stimulating many pounds of It is because of Iti unique fudnig properties that Shackleton, when planning his great Antarctic Expedition, BevrlU of'the proceedings, which will bear re- lietitioji. Read it: "If you have been fostering the Idea that American football is rough sport, ace a game of Canadian hockey am! cast, the idea from-you. There Is about as much comparison between 1he two as there is between crlbbage in n home for the indigent and war with Germany. are the larger impressions that the crowd carried away from the Ice Hippodrome last night after see- ing the Vancouver team beat the (Im- ported) town boys by G to H. It was j the first, game of hockey ever played in Portland. "Just up the street from the Hippo- drome is the Good Samaritan Hospital. cannot say whether It was acci- dent or.deilgn that placed the build- ings it certainly Is going to lie handy for the players If the city indulges in tbe lightning game the Canadians. The -hardest tliinss to understand about ths is how they play It and live. -'In football the players, are not allowed to use wea- pons. It is hard to cripple a man with your 'bare hands. This feminine and decadent tendency in spori. io openly scoffed at by hockey players. They are armed with, clubs to hit with and razor-sharp skates to use in emer- gencies. "If you accidentally break your war ciub over the bean of an adversary, who can tell you were not aiming the at the puck! If you skate across the forehead ot a prone opponent hov, ean they prove that you saw him there? -If Isn't fair to lie do'WR on the ice anyhow If you do it you are liable to other dangers than catching cold Providing that a man is heyond the Teach of voui skates or stick ou with the p ick for long dia tance work.

The only rule is against dumdum puoks, which make rough, jagged 'wounds, instead of clean, workmanlike holes. 'By watching the 'game carefully 5ou will discover that the plasers have not overlooked these things. Tho impression you get of a game is that of fourteen husky: young men who have been raised on tiger milk, turn- ed loose in an irena with onh i pan of unarmed .referees" !to control them. The crowd is protected from the four- teen bj a board fence AUM "c fnnt hith It ought to be higher "The young men, wearing their _-.

Soineuiing. that McDon- ald, of the local team, did, met with Mr. Lehman's disapproval: Ho did not threaten to spill his tea In sir. .McDonald's "r any of those ter- rible English things. "Those who watched closoly say that Mr. Lehman spat on his Hands, skated up behind the unsuspecting McDonald, aimed deliberately and tentatively at a crease in" the hald, so that ho was sure of Retting ills'range correct, and brought tho club down earnestly upon the local player's bead. Much to' the surprise of the audience, both the head and Mr. Lehman's club came through the test 'without break- ing. McDonald, in n show ot weak- ness went down, and Lehman was ruled out of the game tor three min- utes. His stick' was sprung out of alignment somewhat by the consist- ency of the McDonald skull, hut he, played tho game out with It, anyhow. I "The players are protected by pads j and guards everywhere but ou their heads. The goal tenders especially j present an uncouth and alarming ap- pearance. Their legs and bodies are protected with all the spare pillows j and mattresses from their respective homes. The example of the Vancou- ver goal tender shows it is unneces- sary and useless to try and hurt a man at any padded point. whole object of the game is to put that puck into the little goal has- Uet. The goal tenders are stationed at the mouh of the goals, and have to stick there. Thsir principal object in Life Is to let the puck hit them.. The players think nothing of falling, and sliding across the rink, or crashing into the wall in a wild confusion of skates, slicks and humanity 'The wise ones in the audience not only wore their furs, but brought buf- falo robes lying around loose. -The others, stamped their numbed feet and cried to ths players for: blood- no one thought of.leaving be'Fore ;thc game, was over.
