Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 31, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta December 31, 1913. THE LETlt.BRIDGE DAILY ITE It AIM) Pawl- E man who goes a-travelling needs clothes effective in appearance and suit- able to his purpose. Travelling means hard wear. It also necessitates having clothes of impressive quality, so that the wearer may never be handicapped by an appear- ance open to criticism. -FIT-RITE style is the style of the best dressed men. It means an exact fit and the practical expression of all that is most refined and worth while in men's dress. FIT-RITE service is for the man of good taste who wants everything desirable in clothes, and yet at a moderate price. FIT-RITE garments meet these require- ments. 406, 5th St. S.

SPORTS UNITED STATES RUGBY HAS BEEN IMPROVED This Have Had Desired One Fatality Recorded Against 1912 Now York, Dec. for the 1912 football rules the statement that they made iiosaible "tlio boat same of football ever played hy Amer- .eun cxprcGDCu by Henry L. Williams, coach of tho Uni- versity at Minnesota football teum, Inj his report recently before, tho National, Collegiate Athletic Association, ciiairmon of the rules committee. Mr. Williams told of the difficulties that had been overcome and the many radical changes that had been made all of 'which, he said, had proved most fortunate. For several years back, he said, the proper adjustment of the balance between ofttuco and defence, wtih just the right equilibrium be- tween these forces, has been a serious problem. Advantage All With Defence Tho advantage, he continued, had been ou the side of the defence, and It had been well recognized that as tho goal line was approached the de- fence became stronger through the drawing in'of ftie backa to support the line, so that the scoring of touch- downs by equally balanced'teams was exceedingly difficult. For theso reasons, he said, the rules chanegd to give four downs in 16 yards instead of three, a change which lie characterized as the most important and beneficial introduced since tiie 10-yard rule was adopted. The elimination of the ou-side kick was another change which he said was more important for the best in- terests of the game and was made because the committee felt that the advantage of the attack over the de- fence might be too great, because of the decided danger to tho defensive backs and because of tiie decided ele- ment of luck in the play. No College Deaths in 1912 George W. Ehler, director of phsl- cal education at the University of Wisconsin, submitted a report on "football fatalities among college announced that there were no deaths among college men last season, but that a schoolboy was killed.

DOUGLAS CO., Canadian Agents, Montreal PALZER SHOWS SIGNS OF JEFFRIES, TRAIT: News from the training camps ol the two gladiators who will combat for the championship of the white race at Los Angeles, New Year's Day, pary. It has been stated that Palzer is in poor shape but here is a bit ol hot air which rather statement: "There is nothing quite so mercur- ial as the sporting public. A week ago the fans could see nothing but Luther MoCarty. Now the tide has turned strongly in favor of Al Palzer and it is predicted that the Iowa giant will he made a 10 to 8 favorite. 'Stories of Palzer's personality and prowess drew a record crowd to the" Veruon camp. The palce was packed. More people witnessed Palzer's first real workout -than saw Flynn in his last. That much for the early interest the New Year's fight. It would nqt be surprising were the demand to ex- ceed the capacity of r.remi on fight day by 5000 or 60UO. iMute astonishment was the tribute which the crowd paid to his size nnd build. His speed, cleverness and straight hitting were a revelation to them. For some reason or other the Impression prevailed here prior to Palzer's arrival that he was a big, strong fellow with only a superficial knowledge of boxing, and who depend- ed principally on "haymakers." In short, that lie was just an exaggerated edition of Jim Flynn. Palzer is much faster than Jeffries was at the same stage of his career, appears to be clever and bits fully as well. When an old hand at the business like Tim McGrath becomes enthusias- tic and emotional there nmsi hn snnn> cause for his agitation. "Why, he ain't a man, he's a mon- said Tim, n slight tremble In Ills voice, as toyed with Hill Maple, fOO-ponnder., like ho would, with a diikl. "ile don't tii's age.

I coiikln't bpar to look." Then McGrath likened Falser to a huge edition of Eddi Campi. "Mo has a lot of Cnmnl's cleverness and several of his mused Mc- Grath. "When you add 220 pounds bone, and musch to these you have quite a flghting machine." New York, Dec. TJmipre Bill Byron, signed by President Thomas .1 Lynch for the league, staff, brings with him one-half the pugna- ciousness that writers on the Interna- tional league circuit give him credit for, there will be more lively times ou the big league diamonds next summer. This is what they say about the naw umpire: "Do you know, there's going to bo some fun in Lynch's circuit when Byron gets started. He's a little chap, small and insignificant looking, and umpire batters of the big show will look on him as easy meat, espe- cially if they are not forewarned. Byron is the most docile little chap imaginable. He stands about five feet and weighs a shade over 110 pounds, perhaps 111, hut he sure has nerve! "I can picture in my mind's eye the dcene when this little mite of a man gets into his first argument with any of the managers or players who take delight in hopping on an umpire's neck. Unless some kind-hearted friend has tipped them off-in advance that Byron Is lust the opposite of what he looks, they're going to get the surprise of their young lives. "One of Byron's chief assets is his voice, and IIE'S never afraid to use it. Not content with merely malting him- self heard when he wishes to answer a player's argument, he walks up to the man and bellows the words into his face. .Wait till Johnny Bvers starts anything witli FUTURITY VALUED AT Coney Island Jockey Club Arranges foi 1S13 Two-Year-Old Stake Desplto Ban on Racing Special New Year Day Feature Tomorrow and Thursday ________________REMEMBER THIS The Peril of thfe Plains "VIST AN IMMENSE r'HUDUCTipN, MAGNIFICENT ITi CGNCErTiON.

Morris Theatre, added to tliciu already long list ol successes in the production of the old favorite "Alias Jimmy Valentine." The story ol Jimmy Valentine from the time he his par-Ion, to its culmination in'the opening oi the bank safe, and the rescue ol Bobby is too well known to elaborate upon, hul, as. situation after situation fol- lows so rapidly it keeps one "on edge" throughout the whole four acts. Miss Verna Felton in the charac- ter of Rose I.ane, the banker's daugh- ter, showed herself to be well versed in .the delineation of'her role, there- by winning much applause on Severn! occasions. James Mitchell as Jimmy Valen- tine, played his part with spirit and vigor that won the hearts of his au- dience and evoked much applause. Geo. Zucco, as Doyle, the detec- tive, played his'part with consider- able abandon, and came in for his share of approbation, especially in the last, act Jliss Ilirdurs again delighted 'net audience'in the rendering of that well known old song, "My Ain Fol'tf" and in response to the bearty ;'.p- nlause sang the old Irish, Mother M.ichrce." The Hungarian String Quartette contributed Ihcir share in the musi- cal part of the pro-Brain, including in their repertoire selections from H nod's Faust.
