Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 4, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta \ Tuesday, Febmary\ V | -----=S3rtl|�- chefs and shermans -Clayed a tie game Celebrated Taber Hockey Team Stacked Up Against Bill Sher-v man's Speedy Septette in Calgary Last Night-An Exciting Tilt-Score 7-7 Calgary,-Feb. 3.-The Taber 'Chefs' an. Gaigary Shermans played a tie, 7-tP V, last night. It was the most exciting game on the ice this season here. Luck seemed 'with the Shermans, all\the way through, including all' decisions. In combination work, the' Shermans were a point ahead, but the' heavy checking of Taber, defence men offset this. Lloyd-Cook rushed and shot at the Calgary goal, but missed. Sexsmith then taking the puck, a la baseball Btyle. scored. Bishop electrified by a long run, but sturdy A. B. Cook was there to stop him. The play then hung around the Calgary net until Leo Cook made a pretty score from nearly centre ice. Bishop started down the loe, and evaded the Taber defence, scoring number two for Calgary. Balrd tried several shots, but missed; and play went to Taber's �nd, 'where Calgary, by a lucky shot, scored their third goal from a mix up in front of the net. McHugh scored next by combination play all the way down the ice. Lloyd Cook rushed, but the Calgary goal tender stopped big good intentions, and the puck went to middle ice, where Leo Cook found the net with: a pretty shot .'.'.o&arbour TUBhed twicer but over-' skilled each time at the critical moment, and Lloyd Cook then- grabbed the puck from Sexsmith, and scored by.-an accurate lift. Calgary tried for? Taber's goal, but A. G. Cook was right. As B. Cook and Sexsmith went .totthe fence for entering into a Jack Johnson affair, and were followed by Bishop for tripping. The first half ended with the score 4 to 3 in favor of Calgary. . Taber Leads Barbour scored after less than twenty seconds of play, which was followed by a score from Lloyd Cook," and Taber took the lead, to the delight of the crowd.. Lloyd Cook took the boards for tripping, and with the defence weakened, Calgary i tried hard, but Taber's net man was there every time. Baird soon retired for attempting to trip. Calgary came down his wing, and tried hard at the Taber goal, but could not get past the net tender. Sex-smith evened up the score by a long run. alone and a hard side shot. A. B. Cook "was sent .to the boards for hitting, and while off Calgary scored number "six. Cook's victim was forced to- retire for medical attention, and the game rested five minutes. Taber showed great combination, �but-the goal tender was -too much. McHugh was sent to the board? for tripping and Thompson scored the seventh, and last goal for Calgary on a fluke shot. Wilbur Saves Gam'e With odda against them, the 'Chefs' worked as riever before, and Baird scored; from aide ioe, and in less thaii ten�; seconds Wilbur Cook made himself famous by-scoring the last goal, wMch .tied-the game just as the bell rang. � ' : Lloyd Cook was easily the star ct the evening, with Sexsmith starring for iCalgary. , Both goalkeepers shone brilliantly. The tie game will be played off next Monday night in Calgary. English sport writers think the struggle in America to find a successor for Jack Johnson is rather amusing. They recognize Jack as a ^deplorable but legitimate title holdeT, who can fight nowhere but in Paris and perhaps not there. But they consider that he must, be put away before a title can be deeided. Many of the writers believe or profess to believe that Bombardier Wells can defeat Johnson, and. arc strong for a match between the "Big Smoke" and the English champion. They figure that such a bout will bring the world's title to England for the first time since the days of Jem Mace.-Toronto News.

New York, Feb. 3.-"Duke" Kah.n-amoku, the world's champion short distance swimmer,, had a narrow escape from death in a.fight with an eel at a resort r�ar Honolulu, according to reports of the odd occurrence received in special cable advices here today. He was practicing in preparation for the Australian swimming championship in company 'with a number of other swlmmerk when he suddenly seemed to be dragged under the water in a furious struggle. While other swimmers were hastening to him with their powerful overhand stroke, Kahanamoku sank from sight. His 'friends dived, brought him up and carried him ashore almost unconscious. A large eel, "which he had choked to death, had attacked him and in the struggle the swimmer had lost the index fingeT of his right hand. It is reported doubtful whether the champion will be able to compete in the Australian events for which he was practicing.

C. Stein) That deception in amateur athletics exacts a heavy toll on the day of reckoning is'- exemplified- forcibly in' the case of Jim Thorpe, the phenomenal Indian athlete. Thorpe has been tne foremost figurein the amateuT athletic world for nearly twelve months. His name has been on the tongue of a multitude. Even those who take but a passing interest in athletics have bowed to the majesty of the Indian's deed on the field of sport. Thorpe has been a magnet in sinewy' contest-a magnet to attract the attention of nations, not merely nis own country and country: men. * � � * * Thorpe's way has been one of. conquest, of triumph in its fullest measr ure. ''�* At the Olympic games-that test of all tests, this mighty redskin exhibited remarkable talent, reminiscent of the gladiators of the Homeric period,' and won the ti-He of 'world's individual champion. .Thorpe was the reincarnation of the old heroes. He was acclaimed king of modern gladiators, just like the winning of a wreath in the ancient days crowned triumphant, athletes.  * �*.�:.�  Success, with Thorpe, however, did not end with the titular contests in Sweden. Thorpe continued to excel upon his return ' to native soil. He closed the outdoor track and field season as American champion. Then he became one of the wonders of rugby, and was unanimously chosen for a position on the all-American team.'It is months since the gridiron toggery was packed away, yet Thorpe's'ivamo has remained a prominent one^ in' the newspapers. The Indian has -been, such a sensation in all forms of athf letic competition that his deeds have been litterally emblazoned on the sporting pages. 1 And where does Jim Thorpe-this magnificently constructed man and peerless athlete, stand 'today ? Guilty of profeusionallum before his star of fortune commenced to shine, Thorpe now occupies a position that must he humiliating. "Found out," his wonderful record in amateur sport will be erased because he sinned against the laws of amateurism. Thorpe has confessed to playing professional baseball in the bygone. T^at act denies him the fruits of his labor in tile amateur- athletic .world.- All troph|es. and honors that have: been won by the Indian are now confiscatr ed. Th -re no longer is the world's champion amateur athlete, but- a-professional who competed in amateur circles while tainted. '-.>�� Thorpe will be pitied-there can be no doubt of' that, but the cause of amateurism must be protected. It is deplorable that an athlete who has created a record like Thorpe should have done so with the... stajn of professionalism upon him, and there is no other recourse but to take from him the insignias of viotory. "The way of the transgressor is hard." Thorpe is now experiencing the completeness of that Biblical 'warning. Thorpe is but one of thousands who compete as amateurs when in reality professionals, but the difference is that the Indian has been "discovered." There is nothing to commend in Thorpe's action in remaining silent and competing when not eligible for s^uch competition. His fall from a royal, position to the poor standard of a' "veiled" professional should peeve as a lesson. The only pity is 1ha;t Thorpe should be set up as an example while hundreds-yest thousands of other "veiled", professionals remain undetected. ?
