Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 8, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY, FEBRCARY 8, 1917 THE LETHBRTOGE DAILY HERALD PAGE THREE After Is Many Moons Opponent und for Eddie wanks; Stjohn Meets Hihi 15th St. John Already Here From Spokane and Looks Good to the Fans-Will Work Out in Public-Boys Will Tangle at 130 Pounds-Spokane Boy Under Wing of E. L. Pilling. At last! After many moons' �(renuous search a. boy of the right weight, with, a rop. behind it, has !been found to meet the redoubtable aidie JTranlfs. His name Is �Heclc St. John, he has had over 50 bouts, has 15 -Icayos to his credit, and (jomes from Spolcane. He is the "i)rlde of Spokane," and he is lie:'p on the groL\nd and is signed up Jto inect Franics, on Thursday evecing-, .Vobraary ,15tli. The boys ar3 to meot at 130 pounds ring-slrto and ave hoth right on their toes training for the match already. To K. h. Pilling of CardstOTi and I.sthbridga, an old follower of tho ring and mat game, the tuns of 'Lothbrldge- are indebted for tho advent of St. John here. Pilling iwas down In Spokane on some land business and saw St. John �work out In one of the clubs there. He looked all to the merry, Snd the Lethbrldge man looked iip his record. It was all to the merry also, arid enquiry iii Spokane elicited the fact that St. John was good enough to go up against any boy of his weight in the west. Remembering the trouble the Lethbrldge Sports club had had in'findiibg a suitable opponent for liVanks, lie induced the Spokane scrapper to come along with the result that it took but a few minutes to line up the matcli. Tjie proposed bout between Franks and Haskel) wliicli was to come oft about tlie 10th has been set back for two weeks. Eddie has not had a matcli since May 24th, and was anxious to meet a boy of his own weight before tangling with Haskell, to whom lie would have to concede about seven pounds. St. John looks iQoka eyory inch a scrapper and hi.s record is so good that Collins, former manager ot Pred F.ulton, -wanted to take him under his wifig. The arrangement Avould liavc come off, too, only Fred and hi^ manager liad a falling out and a, change of managers nut tho scheme up the flue. St. John's last match was on Labor Day. He, lias been attending to business in Spokaho during the winter months, and has had no triatches, hut he ri'eithcr drinks or smoi'.cs and In in th'e pl'nk. But the big things to the tans here is that St. John is in town and will train here for a Week be-ford tlie match. "There is going to bono liitcli about it.

MCE COVERS BALL RUPTURE Past Week Has Resulted in No New Developments in The Threatened Strike The last week has resulted in no new developments in the threatened baseball strike of the Players' Fraternity. For a short time threats and counter' threats came thick and fast, until the air was blue with them, but lately It appears a cloak of silehfce has been thrown over the situation without either the peeved, magnates or-the refractory athletes disturbing the calm. Can it be that Fultz has rescinded from his stand or else is biding his time before playing his trump card? There seems to be a nigger in the woodpile some place. The consensus of opinion of the eastern baseball writers, who are in close touch with tlie situation, as exemplified in tlie columns of the St. Louis Sporting News, is that the ball players are hurting themselves and not the magnates. The feeling also is extant that the sympathies ot the fans, who usually string with the players, are' all for the magnates, realizing that it is the players themselves with their unreasonable salary demands that have hurt the game. Joe Villa, veteran New York baseball writer, says the - strike is unpopular and harmful and that little sympathy is being expressed for the strikers. 1. N. Sanborn, of Chicago, one ot the most conservative baseball writers in the east, writes that he finds the sympathies of the baseball fans all with the magnates and he makes the same claim that was made .in ti.iso columns a few weeks a^go-tliat if. the ball players win they will ;iose. Sanborn draws the inference that when the newspapers start making tho same unreasonable demands'- as tho ball players it will be time to pity the players. Boiled down, Pultz is waging a losing battle that will not only- prove harmful to the players, but to the game as well. FASTER THi A BAML Vancouver, B. C, Feb. 7.-Specializing In dodging tho puck from the time he was old enough to paw around on a slippery .surface, Hugh Lehman, custodian oC the Vancouver net in Pacific Coast hockey, today ranks as tho "daddy of^'em all" in tho great puck chasing game. "Luck, if you will have it that way, but I regard it as soii^nce," observed Lehman. "Goalkeopei.s train tl.c oyo to catoh the puck coming from any direction. When wo sec a play coming down either wing we move to the opposite end of the not, because nine times o.ut of ten tho shot is goinj; to come in that direction. If it, comes down the left wing wo move to the riglit of the net. No, you can't make mo believe it's all good luck-this stopping the puck." Lehman has been in hockey for 17 years, and he has always played in goal. In lacrosse lie was also the goalkeeper. In fact, he says that goalkeeping Is his business and he's going to see it through. Lehman has played in many cup matclies. Twice in one season, 1909, he played for the Stanley cup, once as a mom-her of the Gait (Ont.) leiini and then with tho Berlin (Ont.) challengers. He was with New Westminster, when the Royals won the' Coa.iL eliampion-shij) in ,i912, and was with the Vancouver cup holders in 19M-).5. The Vancouver goalkeeper ro.gard.'i Irvin, Foyston, Johnson, Morris and Roberts as the most dangorou.s shots in tho Coast League. Johnson, lio .says, is the greatest defense man in the .game. Lehman pooh-poohs tho suggestion that a baseball twlrler can hurl a ball faster than a hockey player can shoot a puck. "Suc'li talk {s nonsense," .says Lehman. "Tho hockey player shooots when travelling at top speed and gets all his weight lieliind tho sliot. Naturally it's going to travel fast. Walter Jolmson may pitch a fast ball, but if I was called upon to stop one or yio other I would prefer to stop a oaseball. There's too much speed to tho puclc when shot by a good man." Irwin and Schweitzer Take The Scalp of Jennings-Mercer In Good Style A new doubles' star appeared in the bowling firmament last night when Irwin and Schweitzer dimmed, the glim ot Jennings and Mercer at the Dominion alleys by taking five straisrht games, winning out by 179 pins. The wood wasn't cackling for the former champs. They'couldn't get going.. Their fourth game, when fhey rolled .3,35, was their best, but Irwin and Schweitzer rolled their best in the fourth too with 371. Irwin copped the high single^ with 202, while Schweitzer took the match honors with 911. an average of 1S2. The new.champs are open to meet any doubles team in the city in a series ot five games. First come first served. The scores: .Tenniags .. 170 li^2 143 15S 142- 765 Mercer ... 158 175 178 177 162- 850 328 327 321 335 304 1G15 Irwin .. ..174 202 IGl 173 173- S83 Schweitzer. 190-168 194 198 161-" 911 3G4 370 355 .371 334 1794 Shbver and Mfirray also tangled in a singles match of. five games last night; ' the former giving a 100 pin handifeap. Murray went into the last game 30 pins to the good, bUt Sliover was equalito tlie occasion, and piled up 225, wliile Murray fell down badly. Shover rolled 1003 for the five games, just over the ,200 average. The telegranhic'ten pin match with Calgary, which it was endea,vored to arrange for tonight, is off owing to a matched game at JDalgary, but the Calgary topplers want to fix a later date and this will, no doubt be arranged for next week. The Herald five-pin team would like to arrange a match wUli any local team. They have been making good scores lately and think they can beat the best in the city. Any team wishing, to arrange for a game, communicate with Joe Pilmer at the Herald office. KUMAGAE TO PLAY |N U, S. New York, Fob; 6.-Ichiya Kuni-agao, Japanese tennis champion, is expected to compete in the 1917 American championship tournament, according to word received by the National Lawn Tennis as.sociat}on. Kum-agae proved a "sensation ' in this country last summer and. was,favored by some as the winner of the national singles title ui^til downed at Forest Hills by George M. Church, now playing in the orient. Detroit Magnate Declares He Will Stand Pat for Present Tiger Contracts Detroit, Feb. 7.-Presidenf Navin, of the Dettplt club, has thrown down the gauntlet and says that he positively will not be clubbed into granting larger salaries than he thinks are deserved. He gives it out coid that lie will not improve the figures in a single one of the contracts sent out this spring, so tlio players can make them or leave them as they gee fit. "I will not give the fraternity tho saHsfaction of saying that it forced me to terms," said the Detroit Magnate Wednesday. "In some cases I might liave compromised with players who are asking advances if it hadn't been for all this strike talk, .but now I'm going to stand pat if it takes the ball park. "Heretofore when I have had holdouts, I have either made the recalcitrant players see my arguments or they have convinced me of the justice of their claims for more money. One way or tlife other, we usually have i-eached a satisfactory settlement. I believe that I have had fewer fusses over salaries than almost any other man in baseball because I have tried to be liberal so tar as it was consistent with good b.usiness to do so. ' . ' "Now, however, I'm not even going to debate the matter with, anybody. Sooner or later somebody is going to have to g� to the mat with the fraternity if Fultz proposes to use it as a club to force exorbitant salaries from the owners. The thing might just as well be brought to an issue now as at any other time."
