Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 19, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LKTIIIMMnOK If K It A1 j 1) Thursday, IMS ALL THE LOCAL AND WORLD'S FOREMOST TAYLOR GEI5 A Wrestled Two Hours to a Draw With Minneapolis Police- man-Taylor Aggres- sive Always Moose Jan-, Dec. a wrest- ling mateh before the Moose Jaw Athletic club last night, John Gor- don, of Minneapolis, claimant oi the world's police wrestling title, and .John Taylor, of Moose Jaw and Lcthbridje, both heavyweights, wrest- led two hours without either secur- ing fill. Police Gazette rules gov- erned the match, which was left as a draw. Taylor was the aggressor throughout, tho Minneapolis man fail- ing to get behind him once during last forepart of the" game and played careless ball, laboring under the be Hef that they could tighten up ami clip the wings of the high flyers from the. school when the time came. The time came in the sixtli inning the school was a 'run to the good, tho score standing. hut the .dormi- tory team couldn't como back. They suffered shut-out after shufroufc and the school kept forging ahead, adding three more to their scorn in the sev- enth. The door mats terribly tramp- led, ruffled and torn, rose up and scratched in two runs in the eighth and repeated in the ninth, on some- what of a charity, thfl last Uvo runs going in on a fluke. The Dormitory team entered tho fray riot a. little inflated in the chest with their victory last Wednesday over the Business Men, while the il had no reason dis- play any peacock feathers, having gone down before the Seniors on a previous occasion. The .umpiring of Mr. A. H. Staf- ford and Mr. S. S. Me Arthur- was the best that lias been seen on tho "gym" floor yet, but the teams couldn't see it that way, particularly the dormitory cavorters, who for- ever and forever were bent on stag- ing miniature imitations oi that an- cient little "Much ado about nothing." The teams lined up as follows Carlejv Nich- olson, Scarth, Dunn." Allan and Mc- Ilyea. Hanch Brando w, Murray, Stewart, Schweit- zer and Fisher. B. Stafford and M. S. McArthur.

These three westerners promise to furnish the battles that will produce invitation to be at the ringside oC the bout on New Year's Day. In hla message to Tommy, Luther McCarty said he was very sorry that a new champion, for Flynn is consid- he would be unable to be in the city ered out of it, as Is also Al on Christmas Day, but that he would the Californian, who for n time was be pleased to come here some time considered the best of the "white after the Netf Year and box 6 rounds hopes." And the same may be said j with Tommy, the proceeds of which for Carl Morris, the Oklahoman, and exhibition would be given entirely to Bombardier "Wells, the Britisher. Mcr- charity. ris, who returned to the ring not long ago and has been winning from fourth 'raters, is out of the question entirely, for he was beaten by Flynn and knocked out by McCarty. Incidentally it might be mentioned that McCarty Is 100 per cent, better fighter today than he was when he stopped Morris, while if anything the Qklahoman has however, is not yet disqualified, and taken a step backward, has the chance of meeting his riva! again in the final of this event.. The only other record smashed the first night, wag the fifty yard breast stroke. R. Luke, of Calgary, nego- tiated this distance in 39 3-5 seconds, which is three secouds less than the former record, held by H. Surry, ol Starthmore. Peter Fell, for the fourth succes- sive year, won the long distance dive event. He was scarcely up to his usual form, and won the event by less [ban two feet, an Edmonton man, by the name of Abbott, giving him a close chase for second place. Cronkite First In the' junior classes, H. Cronkite, of Lethbridge, did good work. He won first in the junior fifty-yards semi- finals, and second in the 25-yard tlasb, junior. _ The results, In which Lethbridge oys figured, were as follows; Oliver, Lethbridge, 31.1: 2, Munday, Calgary. 31.3; 3, Thorn, Calgary, 35.

It. .Hu.cday, Calgary, McCarty Next On New Year's Day tho eyes of those who follow the boxing game be glued on the same arena in whicn McCarty atitf Flynn fought, when Mc- Carty is to be given big second cham- pionship trial against Al Palzer. There rife many who will be surprised if McCarty is returned the winner, just as they were when the cowboy ac- complished the downfall of Flynu, but oxpect to sec as easy a victory scored. McCarty looks to be the better of ihe two, for he has shown he has everything needed by 8 champion with the exception of experience. If he is beaten by P.ilzer it will be throtign lack of experience. On the other hand Palzer, too, has much to le'arn and if anything he is not the polished is. There is one thing that can be said for both of them and that is that they are game to the core. They have shown it and a a lire thing that they will have to show ft again on January 1 for in- dications point to one of tho fiercest slugging battles that ever 'was staged in any ring. The big kind hearted pugilist offers to pay all his own expenses of the trip, and wishes that the whole of the proceeds be devoted to charity. JJurns is greatly pleased with the offer and there is little doubt that what may be the world's champion will visit the city and the Calgary fans will have an opportunity of seeing him in working form. This action itself shows that the young fighter has not been affected with that disease so common among the boxers who find themselves stars head, and he no doubt remem- bers well that it was In this city that he first began his career in tho ring, uj> to tiid present, has benn a great success.
