WE CUT YOUR REPAIR BILLS IN TWO Any 5.Passeii|;er Car We Will Overhaul for $35.00. PARTSEXTRA Palace Garage,2nd Ave. S. 8TOD0ART_ A RAVEN - AUTOMOTIVE ENGINE^RS ONiCKEROEF Calgary Scrapper , Will Claim Title if Tait Refuses to Meet Him Curlers Over the Top Tomorrow Clonie Tait Isn't the most popular lightweight champion of Canada that ever was, by any manner of means. The Lethbridge fans never could see Tait as anything more than a second-rater'and their opinion of him hasn't been improved any by his appearances here. Promoters of boxing bouts in Canada have also found him a peculiar customer to handle. Our opinion in this matter is supported by the toi-Ipwing from the Calgary Albertan: Clonie Talt, "lightweight champion of Canada," is in for a hot time in the boxing circles If he continuously keeps lip at his old trick of accepting challenges offered him and then ignving them. "Postle" -Hacker, a local 135 pounder, sent out to Tait a challenge for Ian exhibition bout to be fought sbinewhere around New Year's. With two .days to go for the New Year to come-aid shine its splendor on the Joca}/^ boxing fans, we find Mr. Tait calmly arranging bouts in Saskatoon and Moose Jaw, and a few places far ftoni the local view. Butrhere comes the topgh part of it. If Clonie Tait does not meet or sign documents to meet Postie Hacker by the .^"nd of February, Hacker will claim the lightweight championship of Canada., which he will have a perfect right to do. Since Tait knocked Johnny O'Leary out a year ago last summer,-the same Mr. Tait has not defended his title against anybody, and since that time has not accepted the challenge of a good boxer except Tom Mulhall, a former trainer. Owing to the fact that the local bylaw allows but four-minute rounds to be fought, Hacker la willing to box two four-round bouts with 15 minutes In between. Curlers are begging Friend Wife for her new broom today, hunting up their rubbers, digging out their old sweaters and gloves and generally preparing for the grand otfenslvfe whloh will start at tlie zero hour tomorrow. New Years Day. Zero Is 10,30 a.m. when the s'Kips will call on their men to go over the top for the attack. The opposing forcfs will be marshalled by the president and the vice-president for the regular opening event of the season. Following are the draws: President. Vice-President. 10.30-Reld vs. Nelson. 10.30-Hamilton vs. Skeith. 10.30-Freeman vs. McKenzie, W. L.

J., celebrated Its 1.50th anniversary two years ago the place of honor was given to the survivors of the immortal^ Rutgers football, team ol 1869-the men who helped to defeat Princeton in the first intercollegiate gridiron match ever played either in America or England. The game was played at New Brunswick 49 years ago, November 5, 1869; and an interesting account of the of the rival "'25s" has been resurrected from the columns of Che New Brunmick Fredonian. The reporter who covered the flrai: college football match wrote as follows: "Our neighbor, Princeton, sent her chosen 24 stalwart men, and one Goliath, to combat our 25 striplirigs. There is not recorded in the history of.the Olympic games a more interesting and decisive match played in BO short, a time by'.such a number of contestants as this game was. Rutgers led off by winning the first Inning amid the vociferous cheering of the bystanders. "Princeton seemed to play a little wild at the beginning, hut in the second inning they recovered themselves and came out victors. So it continued off and on, one gaining, then another, until the ninth and tenth innings, when, notwithstanding, Rutgers quickly and boldly followed successive victories, giving them six runs to four of Prin'^eton, thereby coming off conquerors, which- was hailed with exult* ant shouts of applause by the admirers of Rutgers."
