Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 2, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta SATURDAY,, FEBHUARY 2, Win 1,1 ...ft^mfmrn THE LEa:iTOmDGE DAILY HERALD "BRINGING UP MtHER" PAGE THttfeii, , By G. McManus Ijt is to Laugh the Sweet Calgary and Edmonton Are Deciding Basket Championship . The following special to the Cal-E�i"y Herald from Bclmftnton will cause Lctlibrldge and Biayniond bas-keteers to smile a smile: Kdmonton basketball officials, Dlayers and fans are enjoying a hearty laugh at the calm effrontery and undiluted gall of the ancient Biir Dingle, who lias been playing basketball in Alberta since Hector was a pup. Tii the course of a letter, which is a masterpiece of English as she is "spoke," the affable Dr. Dingle invited the University Y. M. C. A. and Namao teams of the Kdmonton Senior Basketball League to journey to Calgary next month and engage in a tourndmont for the championship of the province. Briefly Dingle contemplates a (ournaroent rwitb three teams from ICdnidnton.ttife' Calgary Y.jr.CjV.. I^eth bridge Y.3W.C.A. arid Haymond Athletic Cliib at death's grips on the Calgary Y.M.C.A. floor. To quote the letter, "each team wUl lie allowed reasonable travelling expenses." Want Home' and Home Qamea The players confprisihg the Edmonton City League are beardless youths but w6re not born yesterday, nor evert the day before, and hardly had Dingle's letter been given the once oyer thao: a horse laugh re-iduiided'to'the higb'heavens. The supreme nerve! of the Calgary officials in even thinking Edmonton would consent to sucU a proposition caught the rislbles of tlie meeting. As of yore, home, and lidme games win prpvall.^wjienthe.j championship ' of thp'locjili league is decided" and . the title' hbliiers are in a position to play oft witTi the other group win-^�^uers^' . v -�� , � � � .'� Threii Edmonton teoms were in-� vited tbcoiriiJete, while it will be noticed "the GalgaryViM.C.A. was to select; ih6 best available players . from theit; house: league to form one team.

E The 2nd team of the Lethbridge basketball club journeyed to Raymond last night and afterl a stiff struggle succeeded in defeating the Raymond juniors by tlio score of 31-20. The roads were bad and the team did not arrive on the scene of action till nearly nine o'clock and the Ra^'mond crowd had given up the game. An * �> * TIMED CAMERA TESTS * SPEED OF BASEBALL How fast does a' thrown baseball tnivol? Some recent experiments by Prank 13. OUbreth, an efficiency engineer of I^rovldcnco, R.I., as described in ft story In a recent isaiio of a monthly -----?.7.ine, attempt to answer the on. Mr. i. found that a fast ball thrown oisouably fast pitcher, from tliL' it left his hands to the time It vc^^.iai the bat, required 0.288 second. That was travelling at the rate of 210.07 feet per second, or about 2.4 miles per minute,'which is nothing like the speed generally attributed to fast balls: by, the. public, or by the ball players themselves. The pitcher in this particular case was Arthur Fromme, formerly of exhibition game between the Raymond j I'^'^.X^^. Juniors and seniors was in full sway i Now Fromme can't be regarded as a on their arrival. The first Jiaif saw Raymond get away'to a good start ringing up five points before Lethbridge secured a counter. It was nip and tjick all the way through an(X, at the close of the halt the score stood 12-10 In favor of Lethbridge. The locals seemed now to be warmed up and from the start of the 2nd halt began to serge awoy from their larger opponents. With ton minutes to go, Burr of the Senior Raymond team took Fairbanks place at forward for the remainder of the half. It seemed to make no difference and the game began to get rough, Raymond committing many fouls which were costly. . ^ Supt; Pennetather is ace high ;A the city today.
