Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 6, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta TUESbAj!^; FEBRUARY, 6. 1917 THE LET^BRIDGE DAIL'V HERALD PAGE THREE SECTION SUDIERS BOWLING GAME IS GETTING INTO THE MILLIONAIRE A  million doUar tournament \n) among the .poBslbllitles of tho futUro if t^6;.bowlers keep on piling^ uji tn; tried to, their national . meet the way they have, 1[>een doing the last lew years. A tan with a taste for fig. ures dug up the information tltU iweek thftt the coining event at Grand iRaptdB Is going ;to turn loose $166,-720 In real money-and all for a few fleeting ihoqients of tussling with the head^in anaihis, nine brothers. / The American Bowling congress is to hold its 17.thi Annual meet at Grand iRapids In March and indications point to 800 flve-nnaa teams', some A800 doubles aUd 3^00 singles as active coh-ol teatants. Eiaoh man will spend on an average of $40 and as there will be omething like 4pdO men in action it means tibout one-sixth of the $1,000,-(000 will be spent. ' : :9S0,p00;Oo For Prize* About f60,000 will be paid back in prize money, but the-rest wjlI be a dead loss for the players. The aipount of pleaisure and sport; along wjih the thrills of competition, more than repay for the heavy'percentage against them, Judging by the way the^ enter the big event year after year. First prize in' the team event tWs year probably will run close to $1000, with a gradiitited list running down to $25 for last" place, nearly 200 team iirizes being arra:nged so that the experts will not have things all their own way. The same proportion will be observed in the other events. 1 WinningB Rarely Large Individual winnings are rarely largo In the bl$; tournament, one of t^e greati�st. financial cleanups by any men being last year, when Hank Marino and Sykes Thoina, two Chicago players, won tie two^ian contest, with Sykes coming-back In the all-events; Both of them also wbn smaller am- ounts in the other, two events; Their combined winnings, which werO- spilt equally between thehiBelves, reached to nearly $1200. instances where flvr-manj teams have cleaned up amounts over 11000 at single tournaments are somewhat conamoh, but the individual player feels that he has made a: big Killing when he returns with $200 or $300 as'a result of his work. Red-Letter Sport Event r The American .Bowling congress tournament has bebome recognized by air other lines of sBort as one of the igreatest sporting events of the year, and its tourriamentiK cause more people to make long railroad trips than any similar convention in the country outside of the big political gatherings, which occur only once in four years. Maiiy years ago Joe Tlium, one of the best known, bowling alley promoters In the country, came to Chicago from-New York city with several Gotham teams to take part in the first national bowling- tournament^ ever held. While here he told ft stovy about a bowline event in Germany, in which > the first prize ivas a h6u3(9 and lot. Twenty years ago his story was accepted with incredulity, but the American meets put.up enaiigh prize money now to buy. 'ait'^e'ntlr'e village, and the bowlers are >tlll unaat'sfied. No ..Profenlonal*'' In spite of the enormous ((mounts of money distributed In rewards to the bowlers/it is spent without costing a single man his standing as an amateur in any other line bf sport. The prabable reason is that the. other sports recognize that no bowler can ever rely enough on his gamers bringing hiin home the money to depend upon ills skill tor a llVellhbbd; Bowling has turned its 25th birthday under modern regulation conditions and has yet to produce a single profegsipnal. Basketball Tonight for ked Gross The stage it all set for the basketball tangle tonight.- The Bull Dogs are all groomed,> and the Tom Cats have been eating red meat for nine days. When they class there will be fur flying. The teams are picked from the .best of the local basketers, and should put'up a grand scrap. There is room for 300 *pectators In the . gym gallery. Fill it uo to the roof. Besides the basketball tilt there will be wimmifig and gymneistic exhibitions. And it will all be for the, benefit of the Red Cross if that Is' any added inducement to attend.* The doings start at 8. 10 HUNDRED IKSVISITAT WINNIPEG'SPIEL  Winnipeg, Feb. e.-With the entry list reaching t72 rinks, prospects are that at' least 200 rinks will enter the first draw for the Winnipeg, bonspiel, which opens today.- Many new cliibs have sent entries this year, while Saskatchewan will be strongly represented. Regina is to the fore with three entries, while Saskatoon is sending along two rinks. Jimmy Gillespie will, of course, be here from Moose jTaw, while there will be several entries from^ Aibertia.. Duluth is the only American city to enter, the zenith city sending two entries. St. Paul had promised rinks, but have called them off, pleading that the men did not care to leave on account of the United Spates being on the verge of war. at Fernle ge Sent &iir (Special to the Herald) ernie, Feb. 6.^The bonspiel open-ied here today with four rinks from Lethbridge, one from Taber, one from Carmangay and one from ' Macleod. Cranbrook'vsent down three rinks so that there is a good attendance. The very -mild weather with sunshine all day has had ^ a very softening effect ,upon the ice, but nevertheless compe-^ titlons started liv the Burns contest, and in the Grand. we have entered into with our em Herchmer winning put. Owing to.the watery ice the playing -will not begin until eleven o'clock tonight. Indications favorw slight freeze tonight and the curlers are hoping for good Bak.

In fact, he told me this much last fall," said Peck, adding', "The demands of the fraternity are so trivial that I feel sure everything will be adjusted long before the time set to open the season." :'Peckinpaugh' is a director in the players' fraternity. He has been commissioned to see personally -many of the big. leaguers'-who compose [ Cleveland'5" winter colony and learn 'from tfiem their sentiments in;this business.

Fred Pardee Says There Should Be Orgainization-Borden to Appoint'Committee Ottawa, Feb. 5.'^W)ieii the house met .this afternoon Si 1- Thomas White, minister of finance, tabled supplementary estimates for tin; present fiscal year, amounting to 127,777. This, sum, according to the agree ment-reached,, is-to bo voted before the house adjourns. This is largely tor moneys already oxpendod and includes $6,000,000 reauired for the I.C. R., which Sir -Thomas White states i� really a bookkeeping item and does not mean additional oxpeiidititre. Hon. A. B, Kemp, replying to a suggestion by E. M. Macdonakl, said it was intended that the Irish Rangers of Montreal after tl)ey nnish their recruiting tour of Ireland dvill be sent to the front as a unit. They will be attached to tho fifth Canadian division now being organized in England, Hon. Charles Marcil asked for con firmation of the cabled rei)ort that Brigadier-General Garnet H.ughes is to command the fifth Canadian divi sion now being organized in England. Hon. A. E. Kemp had no official Information in regard to tlie matter. Mr..'Fred Pardee mov;d the cd-jourmnent of .the house in order to move ifOr the appointment of a committee of the house to consider the questidn of care .of returned soldiers during the approaching recess. He said- it was deplorable that we had no organization-to'adequately look after broken Canadians back from the front. ; i : It was a depldrable thing, he said, that people sh�(uld be asked to give charity for thebe gallant men. Existing organizations had already reached the end of their tether and it was essential that something more should fee 'dbiie. Xt was the duty of parliament and the government to do more than had been.done up to the present time, and^ no'^ more time should be lost. A committee between now and April could secure much .useful information for the house. He suggested the appointment/of a federal commission with a staff and with sub-corn missions m each provinee. It should be made a-x>.urely government matter, the cost being-added to the national debt. The lidea'of charity should be eliminated , Sir Robert Borden, in reply, approved the brlnging..of this- matter to the attention of thtf* house. He announced that the/cttmmittee of the house asked for by Mif.-Pardee wo.uld.beappointed. .Vj-. The government would give the conaihltteo th> iS^&ntiige of'-any information whioli: has already been collected. It was desired; he said, to give to the'retdrned soldiers ample opportunity to earh*a living. The pre-l^nier agreed with the idea that U .was wholly desirable that returned soldiers should not'be made subjects of charity. He added that he liad placed in the hands of the law clerk of the house legislation passed by otli-er countries, including England, and had asked him to draft legislation suitable to Canadian conditions. The premier outlined what had already been, done in-the direction of helping returned soldiers, including the recent inter-provinoial conference which dealt with the maitter of land settlement. He announced that J. Bruce Walker, immigration commissioner at Winnipeg, Man., had been appointed to represent Canada on the Cenml Imperial Board which will deal with the matter. Sir Robert also stated that steps would be taken'to ascertain the number of soldiers who might desire to settle on the land after the war, while the national service commission is making preparations to take an iu-d,ustrlal census of Canada which would be helpful. As an indication of the effect the basis of settlement of the, coal strike is going to have on.wages in general the .'city .council .at this, morning's meeting moved to lay the whole matter of salaries o^ the table, rescinding such action as bad already been taken and waiting the terms of the settlenient of the coal strike. "I am in favor, if we make any move at aH, of granting our employees a -war bo'hu's 'Instead of an Infcrease in:the present wage scales," declared Mayor Hardie.,  Commissioners Grace and Freeman acquiesced tliat this would be the best plan to follow. It Avfts. pointed out that many employees must be having a hard time to make, ends meet, but Mayor Hardie also -pbiiited but that the ratepayers werehaving a hard time to make their taxes .i^eet, so it was decided to go slow.
