Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 1, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE DAIL.1 HEKALD Saturday, February 1, 1913. PRINCE ALBERT TO BE LINED UPJDAY Then the Circuit Will be Completed-Saskatoon Wants Baseball Badly MILE A minute ON A BICYCLE ? ? ? ? V ? Kansas Cftr, Mo., Feb. 1.- Paced by a motor cycle, Clarence Camraan, of Jamaica, Long Island, last night rode a bicycle two miles in two minutes and 50 seconds, a world's record on a twelve lap track. OLD COUNTRY SOCCER TABLES  First Division The "evangelical" baseball tour of Sam Savage of Calgary, and Messrs. Grey and Horner of Edmonton, has met with success undreamed of- Saskatoon is the seventh city to be brought into line for the new Western Canada League of 1913, and there is but one more place to be secured, namely, "prince Albert. The "evangelists" got the glad hand at Saskatoon yesterday, and from there they will go to Prince Albert, a city that has had no experience in professional baseball, but that fact will not be. detrimental to promoting interest there-probably otherwise. Prince -Albert is an ambitious city and a sporting town second to none for its size, which is about equal to that of Medicine Bat'or Leth-bridge. Advice from Prince 'Albert indicates that the lining up p� this city will be easy for the touring;'magnates. With this place secured; the new Western Canada League is practically formed. Should Prince Albert turn down the idea, the next best bet will be North Battleford. SASKATOON IN LINE Saskatoon, Jan. 31.-The baseball delegates from Alberta did .successful business here today in their efforts to seoure Saskatoon as one of the eight clubs to compose the Western Canada League.
