Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - February 6, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta WT3DXESDAY. FEBRUARY 6, 191R _ - THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE THREE --ui_______u-L-L.__'--.I..i..ji.L_____j.i__1______.....__I____'.j________�_____________!-�_1-l----------!-i-i---------~--------------�.------------------ ��' !�!ext Saturday night at Vulcan Young Ootch, billed as the 190-pound wrestling champion of Vancouver, and Walter Anderson, sometime of Lethbridge, will tangle on the mat under the promotion of M. P. Butler, of that town. The best two out of three falls will decide the match which is for a prize of $150. On the following Saturday night the winner will stack up against Frank Taylor, brother of the famous Jack. WILLARD WAIT8 FOR REPLY Jess Willard is still hibernating. in Chicago, waiting for some one to take him up on his proposition to fight for the Red Cross. A lot of battlers have sprung up and expressed a willingness to tako Jesa on, but. no promote! or manager has agreed to meet, the terms Willard Imposed. It is unlikely that anything further toward inducing Jess to enter the ring will be done until the outcome of the Fred Fulton-Frank Motan battle in Now Ovisacs in February. Strength is an important factor in a motor car. lis long-wearing qualities depend upon il. So does your safely. At the same time, its weight roust not be uiiduly increased, or it will lose in speed and power. Some cars are built just as strong as they need to be; some are are built a little stronger than they neod to be; some quite a lot songer; lW- THE MITCHELL CAR IS BUILT 100 PER CENT.

And this time Ross is going to train. Friends were surprised yesterday to see the local ring idol hitting il down � the road In running togs. Ross is doing road work. It is a long time since he did training of this kind but after his bou; with Harrison he decided that before ever he went into the ring again he would put bimsolf in condition that he could go 20 rounds if necessary. By this method he figures that lie can go in and fight all (he way for ten rounds. That's bis plan of campaign for Mr. Wolfe, and if he doesn't surprise his friends with his speed and staying powers he will be a badly surprised man. Fans who saw the Ross-Harrison match will remember that Harrison was in such fine condition that, he never even took a. drink of water for the first five rounds, and at the end of the bout did not appear the least bit tired or winded. Ross used to be in that condition too, three or four years ago, but since he has been fighting in Lethbridge he has not been forced to extend himself, and so got. into bad training habits. The local boy also wants a training partner, or two who can mix it to a finish. A fine training gym is being fitted up over the Plaza and Ross invites any who will mix it with him to come around. Another thing thai: will help Ross in his match with Wolfe is that, he has had his tonsils removed. These were a source of trouble to him in the Harrison bout and hurt, his wind. Now however the enlargement is gone and Ross thinks he will be a great deal faster. The local man has just as many friends as ever who are very anxious for him to win in this bout. Wolfe is touted to be just as good a man as Harrison, a little rangier and not quite so youthful, but more experienced. Ross however is not. the least bit scared and thinks he can show the fans of Southern .Alberta thai he was not at his best last month in his go with Harrison. One other reason the fans are going in shoals to see Ross on the 20th is that he has been reexamined by the medical board and has been raised from Category IX! to Category A2. .Tust how-Ross' exemption application will be viewed is hard to say but it behooves the fans if they want to be sure to sec Ross in action again to see him when he meets Spider Wolfe. And here's another bit of news: Clonie Tait is in Winnipeg, lie,has changed his plans and is looking for a scrap in Lethbridge. If ho. will meet Al Bloom he can have what he wants early in March. IMm �---i r- y :i ^ I m PLANK LEADS SOUTHPAWS And now Eddie Plank has sent out his usual winter notice of retirement from the diamond. The,. Gettysburg Catling, as the Alliterative Alecks would put. it, has faced a grand total of 51,907 batsmen in his 17 seasons, and they made 387} hits for a batti lg average against him of .24!!. He leads all lefthanders in the history of the game in the amount of work he has done apd hi effectiveness. In only five games in his entire career was Plank touched up for runs that ran into double figures. TOMMY GIBBONS WON THE HOUSE OF SERVICE FIFTH STREET SOUTH LETHBRIDGE, ALT A.

But. he did his best, and he distinguished himself by scoring a shutout, victory, which helped some. Yet. Ferdie has something to chirp about. The pitching records for 1917 show that Schupp was the leading strike-out twirlcr of the season in the National. Schupp liun^ up a record when he fanned 12 members of the Cardinals in a game on July 7, and in several other contests he whiffed more than seven opposing batsmen. Jim Vaughn of the Cubs has a unique record in strikeouts. The figures show that he struck out more than seven batsmen in eight distinct games. Vaughn's high strike-out mark was 11, just one beloiv Schupp. THE A! Chase Flock of Geese and Capture Their Christmas Dinner MANY HOMERS ON POLO GROUNDS Home Team, However, Does Not Seem to Have Advantage The Polo Grounds are the delight of home run hitters, so far as the American league is concerned, and the total of Yankee homers Is usually high, but a New York statistician has figured out. that there has been no great advantage to the home club in this respect. In fact, visiting teams at the Polo Grounds made more homers there last season than did the Yankees in all their home games. Frank Baker and Wally Pipp found the right field wall to their liking, but Tim Hondryx dropped five balls in the left field bleachers. Only nine drives were made into the right field stands by Yank'v: sluggers. There were 19 home runs credited to the Yankees to all sections of the field, while visiting players accumulated 23.
