Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 10, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta SATURbAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1917 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE THREE HERALD AND SI. IN ARE WELL LOCAL MAN HAS IN ACTION IN St. John Has Drawn and Lost Decision With Clony Tait-Has 11 Kayos in Pirofessional Career-Franks Coining Up Strong- . Fans May See St. John in Action Monday Evening. "Take it from me, the bout between Heck St. Jolin and Eddie Pranks next Thursday night Is going to be a hummer unless I am badly mistaken. I saw St. John box Clony Tait in Edmonton a couiile ot years ago, and while Talt won the decision, the Spokane boy gave him a great run for his money. I have seen Eddie Franks box In Edmonton dozens of times, and in my opinion they are well matched." I Hal' Morgan, of the Lethbridgo Merc, yonched that information to the Bporting Editor yesterday afternoon after hearing that St. John had journeyed from Spokane to try conclusions with the Ijethbridge wonder. Edmonton two or tilree years ago used to be the bpxing Mecca ot Alberta when Kid Scaler's aiuditorlum was the scene of Thursday evening bouts each week. Fans may therefore be assured that the boys are well matched. St. John has had valuable experience since then, for on the occasion referred to he was boxing amateur, although be had taken part in pro. bouts in the States. In fact he boxed: Tait twice in Edmonton, getting a draw once and losing the decision the other attempt. Talt is a heavier boy than St. John and' is a; great favorite in the north. The following is a summary of St. John's professional bouts, and will how that he Is no tyro at the game; , 1912Tlr-Sept. 18, Tommy McKevitt, draw, 10 rounds, Grangeville, Idaho, October; 12, Jack Murray, won, 8 rounds.

If there was some manner in which tlie crowd could be wised .up as to tlie facts of the c|se, the judge of play would be saved many an unpleasant situation. In this connection, X recall an unujsual situation that came up In a ,gamo at St. Louis lievertil .years ago. Washington and St. Louis were contenders in an exciting game* Tho Bcore at the close of the eighth was 1 ,to 0 in favor of St. Louis. The first mian iip for Washington in the ninth went ,o,ut. Dan' Moeller hit safely, which brought up; Eddie Foster, one of tiie. best hit and run men. After looking over a couple, Foster got one he liked and hit it through the pitcher's box for what' looked like a auro base hit. ..lohnny Lavan at short managed to get that ball, j.Ust as it waa passing over second. He touched second, winning a hair lino decision over Moeller, and easily threw out Foster- at first. To those watching Foster, *Jt was apparent ho was peeved; with isomething that happened ab.tiie plate. The . base 1 umpire ruled pn both l)lay8!instantly,.*nd since he had called th^: riinner but in each case, the fit. Louis (players, began to race off the field fli.nd the crowd began to ]eave;.^,Theh it.^' became apparent that son'ietMng was wrong. The plate umpire was ordering the Browns to resume their p^pes in the field. At-tet laiime. delay play was resumed, with Foster on first and Moeller on eecond. Both,runners were safe, and only one man was out. Latfer, both these runners dcored, defeating the BTtiwna.  -Perhaps Ihe fact that the St. Lo.uis ^ 0 O K E COLLARS J5 CENTS BACH TOOKE 9RpS. LIMITED club made only a slight protest, rather relieved the situation. The plate umpire was powerless toi act other than ho did. Sam Agnow, catching for the Browns, had accidentally tipped the "bat ot Foster as he was about to strike, at the ball. Agnew always works close up, and when Foster shifted around, to adjust himself to the pitch, Agnew interfered with him. Under the rules the umpire was forced to grant Foster first base, and sln'cft-Mffeiller had to make room for the batter he w;as obliged to go to second; ,/ i/j ; - Ignorance on tlie part of the crowd of shifts made by the manager caus; ed an unusual termination to a gaine at St. Louis in which I figured as the plate .umpire. It was the .only contest in the history ot the Amorlcau league that wag not finished without good reason. It was the second ganie of a doubleheader with Detroit. The Browns had a bad day. In the first game they had been beaten by ^ bad breaks. In the second the Tigers had made a runaway of it. The crowd had seen enough for the day, when the play came up that suddenly stopped the pastime. In the ninth the St. Louis'manager called on his pinch hitters. The first was an easy out.' The next was Art Griggs. Witli the count- two and two, 1 called the next a ball. It was one that might have been galled either way. Griggs evidently thought it was a strike, for, he ha-stened toward the bench. Naturally the crowd figured that made, ,twpj, men .,o,ut..,.,I thqughi; Griggs had), ru^iie.ii tb iife bench to get anotliej^ btii, as; ijai'oftrin the case.v When -r^faHii'^Iiie''had nio intentioti of returning I Jiifbrmed him he still had 'auofher'' strlWe doming. He returned and hit a grounder to the Infield on which he was thrown out at first. iThose in charge of the bleacher exits threw open the gates �nd the crowd swartnrtl upon,? the field, believing the game. oyer, when only two Browns liad been retired. Every effort was ihado t6" clear the field, but in vain, and .yie final out in that contest -was^-iftvaji' made.

License for such a match was granted in Albany, N. Y., by the state athletic commission Friday, and, according to the representative of the corporation which controls Madison Square Carden, in which' permisaion was given for the fight to be held, the bout has been arrancied conditional on Fulton winning from Charles Weinert in their bout next Monday night. Tom Jones, Willard's manager,  however, issued a statement in Chicago in which he denied emphatically that Willard would fight Fulton or anybody lelse on March 26, and asserted that the match with Fulton was proposed, but had fallen through. Willard, himself, asserted today that the Albany announcement was news to him, although he understood such a match viras a possibility, BOXERS AND WRESTLERS Roy Moore, Minneapelis, bantamweight, had a cliear margin over Johnny Ritchie, of Chicago, . in a 10-round no-declsion bout in Minneapolis last sight, while Joe Burger, Chicago featherweight, suffered a dislocated jaw in the fourth round of his scheduled 10-round bout with Alvie Miller, of Ohio, and his seconds threw the sponge into the ring. Artols Fanning, Bertlestsville, waa given the decision over Eddie Butler, Kansas City, Mo., in a 15-round lightweight in Kansas City last night. Joe Stecher, ' Dodge, Neb., claimant of the world's heavyweight- champion-, ship, threw Charles Peters of Par' pillon, Neb., in straight falls in Omaha last night. ' In order to settle tlin differences between Mayor Hardle and Chairman .Bulyea ot" the Utilities Board, the Lethbridge Sports club h!"-, offered to stage ten two minute rounds Ijetween them as a isemi-windui) to next Thursday evening's boui''ih thu Majestic.  . �>� � 'Wd bet on tho native .son. � � * Bets may be posted with the chief of police.

Outside the ring he is a quiet unassuming- young fellow who makes a great hit with the boys by reason ot that very fad, * * / Some who have seen .St. .John work out have dropped tho opinion that Franks will sraother him with spued, but the Spokane boy Is an old hand at the game, and is likely to uncork some of the speed stuff himself. He is quite confident that the worst he will get is a draw.' One thing that does tickle the I'ans is that St. .John is on the ground. Tlie club declared after the Hacker fiasco on . Jan. 2 that they would never'attempt another match unless both principals were on the ground for a week before the match. This is the rule in o.ther centres and it goes here from now on. It's the only way to give the public a run for its money.  * s The proposal to form an auto club hero hits the young farmers round the country who are sporting cars about right. A few auto picnics during the summer will do much to make the club a success. * -. � � round thisi "Y".- There is plenty of room for good cletin apovt in Lethbridge and the ".Y." is the place to foster it. .
