Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 1, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY. FEBRUARY 1, 1917 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE THREE HERALD SECTION Ybiing Al Ross Meets Sailor Bui^e in Seattte on Feb, l5 Young Al Rost hadn't been in Seattle long before he wae in the llmelieht in' the'flgKt game. The Lethbridge^..fayorlte, it booked to meet Sailor Purine (n Seattle on February 15th. Burlof one short year. In their places loom up such hoys as Willie Jackson, Irish Patsy Cline, i �eeps -^on ngniing. nme AVallace, Ritchie Mltohell, I 'loesn t he'll have to Tommy Tuohey and Benny Leonard.

They 'liave sDrung into prominence, mushroom-llko overnight. 'Clirie and Jackson come from that cradle' of lightweights, Harlem. They, like Harlem, Tommy Murphy and a host of others, were developed at the i Boys, attention This is the first New iPolo A, C, that ancient corner niglit of the Canadian gtandard Effi-clubhduse in an out-of-Oie-way corner ciency Tests being, held at the "Y." of Harlem-whence many a champion so tog up good and warm with a pair has sin-outed. �f running-shoes under one arm and Strangely /9no.iigh, tbto advent oP a gym suit under the othei-; and pre-Mike Gibbons in this city was their Pare for the good times in storel for inspiration.

As a matter of j'" 1017. fact, botli Cllne and Jackson ''""o' many of Mike^s quaint and efficient' hits of feinting and footwork highly ^ developed and prominent In their -sl^lo of boxing. Jackson is not auite twenty years old, Cline Is nearly two years younger. And albeit~they both began their jnofeaslonal boxing careers at about the same time and place, they have jiever clashed in the ring. Coincl-dently, each has eutl'ered only one decisive defeat, and that at the hands of the same boxer namely, Johnny Kilbane, in thei; same place, Philadelphia. The' coincident might he carried even further, for Cline was to have met D.undee at the same club lin WILL PLAY FOR Game Staged Tuesday-y-Gymna-. sium Exhibitions and Swimming on Program Morn than the .usual stir is noticeable in bnsUotball circles these days. Next Tuesday night's match between the Bull Dogs and the Tom Cats is responsible. The boys held a big practice on Tuesday night wlien the prosram was outlined. It is the intention to put on an exhibition of gymnasium work before the matcli. The match itself will bo worth the price of admission, and as the receipts are U^ go to the Red Cro.ss, tliere is sure to be a crowd which will tax the capacity of the' gym gallery. A swimniing exhibition will close the evening's performance. After Tuesday's match it is quite to be expected that there will be a clash between Lethbrldge and Raymond. The Raymond squad cleaned up Cardston the other night, and they want to haiid the locals a beating. It will be a great match when it is staged; TO-DAY'S Sport Summary FOUGHT TO DRAW Chicago, Feb. 1. -"Gunboat" Smith of New York and Jack Moran of ot. Louis fought twelve\ rounds to ^ draw in St. Lpuis Wednesday night, ac�ording tp'the referee's decision.

Folwell "not acceptable" as head, coach of the varsity football team was announced in Philadelphia, by the committee on athletics of the University of Pennsylvania, last night. STiOFN.H.A. And He Played Hockey His First Winter for Big Sum of .$35 Hanibly Shore, the dashing cover-point of, thq Ottawa Hockey club, whoso sensational iilay ' has benn chiefly instrumental in keeping tl e Senators out in 'front in the first half o� the championship race in tlie Natforfal Hockey Association, has been' prominent among the p.iick-chaiens for the past twelve seasons. Last winter Shore luul trouble with the cliib at the commencement of the season and for a time it looked as though he would l)e dropped. Any ordinary player might have been discouraged under such circumstances but not so with Shore. Ho took his case to President Qiiinii, of the N.I 1-A. � and .caused such a [urore among i the local fans that he was ovcntuaily reinstated and p,ut liack on the Ottawa defence. Wliilc Art Ross was with tlie club Shore had . been used for .utility work, largely for the rea-� son that he and Ross checked on the i same side. So far this season he has played in all the games, .showing a remarkable come-back. Last winter Spraguc Cleghorn was geneiiijlly acknowled.cnrt the most ef- j fective chassis in the N.li.A. This! year critics should concede the honor to Shore. Hambly has starred for Ot- j tawa in ail their games and i.s having the best season of his, long career. He rusiies from end to end with more SH#ed tlian he ever showed previously, is blocking in clover stylo and his shooting has been fatal to opposing goalkeepers. Though {players^ have come and gone. Shore is still tlie idol of the Ottawa crowd. I Hamby's hair isn't so thielc as �it used to be, hut otherwise there is'no difference from the spectacular youngster, who brolce in as a 17-year-old schoolboy when the Ottawas played in the Federal League in IflOo. Shore is easily the most spectacular player in the game. The average defence man is slow in starting. Nc^, so with the Ottawa boy. � One strike toward the puck, a neat sidestep and away he goes like a flash. He seldom turns from side to side, but leaves opijosing players standing in their tracks. An excellent skater and one of the cleverest stickhandlers In the game. Shore invariably' deljghts the crowd as he streaks up arid down the ice. Not that he handles the puck so much, but ho holds his head in the pinches and makes every move count. And not only is he'Btefter on the offensive than ever before, but he is blocking with, more effectiveness, TENNIS PLAYERS FOR EAST VS.
