'spiel, will light it out in the eights today to get into the fours, .so that the semi linals will lie played between (lark and Boyd, (jf l.ctlibridge, and llerehmer of Kernie, nnd lienderson of 'i'aher. The finals will therefore be fought out between a local and a visiting rink. HOT STUFF Two vjsiting rinks and two local nnkr. will meet also in the semi-finals in the Pagnuelo. lleLeod anil Clark will clash here also, McLewl having defeated Boyd in the eights on Wednesday night after one ot the hottest exhibitions of curling in the whole 'spiel.

Ct.AUK UNBKATEN MeLeod and Boyd have been hold-iJng up the, Grand Challenge also. They:.' stack up against each other in the rights. Wilson, of Cranbrook, 'and llerehmer, of Fernie. preached the jewelry class last night, and will meet in the serni-finals. Clark, ot Lethbridge, continued his string of imbroken defeats in the main events nnd is also in the seini-fmals of this competition. He will meet the winner of the Boyd-McI,eod game for the Iniiior of fighting it. out with the v.iimer of the Herchmer-W'ilson game in the finals for the big cup. Clark has been about the most consistent curler so far. He is in the fours in the Pagnuelo, Brewery and (T.rand (^.hallcnge.

CORBETT HAS WORDS OF PRAISE FOR RITCHIE Lethbridge Carley 12 MacICenzie 20 McKain 0 Roberts -1 Allen 0 The teams Raymond Barrus 6 Johnson 11 Tanner i Stephens 0 Christenson 0 were originally New York, Feb. 3.-Willie Ritchie which is an unusual thing in New is getting a lot of undeserved panning York, where the friends and supporters of a losing seraijper in so important a contest put up a howl that can from the knockers' clubs of the coun try. For what reason? Si.nply be- ^^.^^^ ^ cause Illness has twice compelled ^______.u....... , -1 him to call off matches with "Harlem Tommy" Murphy. If WilUe wasn't .champion the pa- ; if there is a possible chance of getting away with It. That's what I call going some for a champion's first year at the .top of troubles a tumbl*. Sailor Petroskey was forced to cancel the match Tom McCarey had scheduled for him with .linimy Clabby last weeJc, but 1 haven't seen anything in the sporting pages insinuating that the tar had cold feet, or liupugning his courage. But with Ritchie it is different-he is the champion of his class, and as a result is the target for all the shots the scribes feel like aiming In his direction. It helps fill the sporting columns and, after all, really does not do the champion any great, harm. Still it is not the fair thing to roast a fighter of the Ritchie type for doing what any sane person would have ......^ .. ________ ___________ ^_ Clone under like conditions. .visiting rinks shotild have the right | II'''^'''^ BO"*^ i""-" 'he ring with pers -vou-idn't have given him and his ^,,^35 -^yHUg jj,^^,^ ^^^^y. ^^^^ easy marks, it will be noticed. On the contrary he let the matchmakers do the picking and boxed the hardest propositions in the lightweight division. Now because he has been unfortunate enough to meet with an accident forcing him to call off the Muriihy bout for the second time a number of knockers are filling their columns With inBlnuationg and Inuendoes concerning hlB courage. Why, Ritchie is entitled to sympathy instead of knocks any way one looks at it. In t!he flrat pl�c� it isn't very nice to "epring" a bum heel, an accident that would put him out of the game altogether if not properly attended to, and in the second place, 115,000 is.not to be picked up every day-even these times when the purses are prodigal. And the Murphy match looked like easy money for the champion from any angle one sized It up. Truly the path of a champion is not always strewn with roses. HOCKEY AT FERNIE Trites-Wood 6 to 5 - Co.
