flTE LETHBRIDGE DAILY BE^AW BRINGING UP FATHER WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 20,1990 By � McManus | stars have come, ^ Through many years they've gone-Each season sees the old ones pass, While youngsters face the dawn, Each year they flash, each year they fade- New lads the spangles don- The long procession turns the bend- And still Ty Cobb plays on! Oh look at the wreck of Arnold FOgg! He missed s kick at an Airedale dog! Cork will not sink and lead won't float- Arent the women /Just h-. since they grabbed the vote? It's right to say,that there is air ways somebody ready to replace anyone who passes on-but have we seen anyone yet who took the place of Buffalo Bill in the hearts oft the American public and the American boy? The St. Louis .Cardinals, so said good judges at the close of the season, had the material to become a winning team in 1921. That is doubt-! less why Branch Rickey Is now trying i to dispose of his players-such a ' calamity as a St. LouIb victory must be prevented at all hazards.

Colder Weather Should Make Play Possible-Lethbridge Team Must Jan Up .two Alberta hockey leagues open tonight provided the weatherman puts lib the ice. They are the Crow Hockey league, amateur, and the Big Four, semi professional. The Crow games are: Macleod at Pincher. Biairmore at Coleman. The Big Four will tilt the lid as follows : Edmonton Dominions, vs Tigers at Calgary. Calgary Canadians vs Eskimos at Edmonton. All .Crow teams with the possible exception of Lethbridge are ready to go. Strange to say, the Lethbridge team, last year's Alberta amateur champions, are not turning out to practise as they should, and they will g6 Into the first game considerably disorganized. There is need of an early meeting to appoint a manager and captain of the crew, if they are to stsct up against the strong Pass teams which are expected to give* them, the biggest run tor the' cup which Is now in possession of Lethbridge. It is understood the Lethbridge district league team will play under Veterans colors, but three members of the champion squad of 1919-20 are missing-Boucher, Sutherland, goalie, and Ted Turcotte, centre man. Reber is understood to be not at all anxious' to play, so that only Marion and Billy Henderson are. really on deck. There are however a couple of new players in the city who will go a long way to rehabilitating the team if they can be got to turn out Grant, of Calgary, is one of these. Then there are McPhee and Henderson of the Mountles who should be able to catch a place on the sextet. The goal job has been wished on Oreille Stone, voted by the fans last summer as the most useful player of the city baseball league. If Ole turns out to be as good a goalie as he is a big mitt artist that hole will be plugged. The weather turned colder during the night after the Chinook and it is believed the two games scheduled for tonight will be staged. Macleod and Biairmore are believed to have the edge for these two openers.
