Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 11, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta MONDAY, FKBHU/VnY 11, 1917 fllE LETHBRIOGE DAILY HERALD PAGE THREB "BRINGING UP FATIfEr By G. McManUs TO COME HOME ^T TM��, HOUW- HOU KNOW � C^N�T %ueep WHILE VOO ARE OUT- TO V)ITV\ THM" v^Ke OP'.'. Harrison and Jack Dilldn Matched -^- ' -�- � ->- Bout to Come off in Milwaukee )ore Hands Are Fad Among Players at Training Camps AGE CANT m E 1 Al Ross Has a Sparring Partner Ring fans up this way have Keen wondering why they never heard much about PhlfHarrison before he came up here to fight Al Ross. . As a matter of fact there are plenty of near-top-notchers south' of the line we seldom hear of up this way, and Harrison Is one of them. But the Chicago battler is going to step into the lime light in the next few weeks, for according to word received by friends in the city Harrison is to take on Bob Moha at Chicago soon and Jack Dillon at Milwaukee a few days Ister. Moha isn't so well known to Alberta fans but th^re arc miphty few who hav'in't heard of Jack Dillon the Hoosier bearcat. Between Dillon and Mike Gibbons /it is said to be a toss-up. Fans will be anxious to learn how Harrison and OIII^M^ come out, for from the result they will be able to tell pretty well the calibre of the Harrison-Ross match here. The local set-to has been put down by many who have seen the best of them across the line In action, as one of the greatest mills they had evt^r seen. Ross Working Hard Ross'now boasts a sparring partner at his training qua'rters -a' man \Vho can make him speed up and develop his punch for his coming match with "Spldor" Wolfe of Chicago. That's what the fans want to know. Wolfe is a great boxer though probably a shade less of a battler than Harrison, so he and Ross should match up well and show plenty, of action. There is a possibility that the Rpsi-Wolfe bout will have to be postponed a day or two owing to the theatre being booked for a road-show. BiK'k Wnuver taltcs a iiot' liner tliut nearly knocks lilm off hi.s feet and smiles. TrLs .Speaker gets n lerrlii;; drive nilli apparent easu. Doesn't the ball si ins" iloys on tlie sand lots and umateur.s generally find their lianda arc swollen and sore after an afternoon of pastlniing. Tlioy envy the calm witli wJiich major leaguers tocklo the ball. It's all in the pruclioc. When maj.or longuern are at their spring camp they have to go through a process of hardening their hands. Several montlis of vacation from active playing nnike their hands as soft as those of the average citizen. Managers find it necessary to order their men to practice a couple of days without gloves, tlie {dea being to keei) them from throwing too hard. Many outfielders have trouble at first catching flies. Ping Bodie, a sure catch..has been seen to drop eight of 10 fly lialls hit to him and landing s()uaroly In his hands. .\tter a day at first base we "have heard Jack Fournler complain ot sore hands. He has exhibited Uis glove hand, which lia.; lieon swollen to twice its normal size. First basemen and catchers during the early stages ot the practice oCtou_ wear heavier pads, in their gloves.' Sonfo insert a beefsteak in the lining. .Too Jackson, apparently a hardy chap, more than once last spring told hoH- his hands hurt liim after catching ordinary flies. After a tew days the change comes, and it Isn't long before the soreness wears away and they can begin to take a relish in handling liners ifgain. Most pitchers go through a hardening process that is extionicly painf'al. The finger that grips tlie balls gradually gets a co.llons on the end-known to pitchers as a "corn." This , I.") caused by the 'jOrtm of the ball rubbing against the fingertip as the ball i.-? forcibly released. ^ � The pain is intense, sometimes for weeks! Pitchers drcail this stage of spring training, but realize tUoy have to go through with it.. Sore arms can be treated with fjiir success, but a pitcher's "corn" is .soniotliing that has to be faced and endured. _!__1______________ Philly'Outfielder >N'lio Goes to Cubs One of Oldest In the Game * Xew York. Feb. 11 -IJodo Paskert, recently traded to the C!ui)s by tlrj Phillies for fred Williams, is a marvel among outfielders of the major leagues. At the age ot Paskort still ranks as one of the speediest gardeners in the big show, which is unusual for a player of his years. The average outfielder begins to "lose Ills legs " after he passes 30. The nlmblonoas that enabled him to cover "acres" of ground when ho first won bis spurs begins to disappear, and he shows plainly that he is slowing up. Xot so with PasUcrt. He .has always ranked as one of the fleetest ot outfielders, and he is several steps slower than he used to bo he ca'n still cover ground with the average fielder. ^Cl-'iom Uiii- own Cori>;apoi\cletii) -Macleod, KeU. 10.-Stewart's rink wlilch travelled to Calgary for the ))onspicl, returned last night.

They were secoiul wUh four prizes that mean much to curlers, while the Visitors' challenge was only lost by one small score, and this is a capture ot no mean value, as to the Sups, but great in what it means to the curling fra-'tcrnity. They say it v,-as'work-work-work all llie time while there, but here is the reward.

WILL GO 10 MR Game Should Be Good One - Where Will Finals Be Played? The "Y',' Basketball loam will jour Jioy to Tabor tonight to meet a practically utiknown team in th it town. Taber four or five years back sported u classy aggi'egnllon and without a doubt will have to bo reckoned this year too. , \| , The big ouestiou seems to b'e.when aiitl where the Uaymond-Lothbrldge finalB will bo played. Nothing definite yet has, bpen settled but the nopuiar Idea sooms to be to settle the argument on a neutral door, which would be the Cardston school gymnaBiuin, Aifldoubteaiy the best floor in the south country. 'Here Is the way the dope is, Raymond'carad to Lethbridge and received a trouncing to t\ie tune of 4G-29. Then LotlilA-ldge went to Raymond and likewise received a trouncing by 42-26. 'IMiat the home tloor makes this vast difference there is no .doubt, so the only^way to settle it is to play on a neutral tloor. The only other way would be to play another aeries ot home and liorao games and count total points on-the round. The flrs^t round would give Lethbridge the bacon as.they made a total ot one point more than Haymond. ' Tlio date of the play-oft hits'not'yet been de--| cidert but may be Thursday of this week.

I may t^inlsli eighth, but 1 don't expect to." lOO-YAUD -MARK LO\VERED The remarkable advance made in truck .and field athletics by American performers In recent years is strlkins-ly demonstrated by the latest charts ot the Amateur Athletic unfon. With the exception of two or three events the records show that almost every standard contest-has repeatedly been bettered during the period since the early eighties, when the A.A.U. was organized. ^ The lUO-yard dash record was cut down two-tlfths ot a second in a trlflo less than 30 years. Between 1883 and 1918 It was broken twice, and no less than 11. sprinters participated in breaking or lying the time. In the 220-yard dash tonr-flfths ot a second was lopped off the time In a similar period, the record being broken twice and, eight runners receiving raarkable example.-; of the Improvement in athletic cnnipotition. The running lilgli jump ui.arlL has been moved up 3 5-l(i inches since 1887, when \V. B. Page cleared (J feet t Indies. Eddie IJeosoii liolds the record at present, with (i foot 7 5-lii inches, but in the interim Mike Sweeney and George Horino hold the figures ot their day, thus proving factors in the climb ot the jumpers. The broad jump shows an improvement ot 1 foot 4il-l inches. In ISSG the figures 23 fed 3 inches, made by Malcolm Ford, ami between that date an I Meyer Brim-stein's record leap of 24 feet 7 1-J inches the records were broken five times by four different broad jumpers. Other Marks Go The hop, step and jump shows_ a gain ot � feel !) 1-4 Inches botwe'eu 1884 and 1911, when the existing figures were osluhlished, by Dan Ahearu. The pole vaulters also kept raising the bar ste.idily from the day when Hugh Baxter did 11 feet 5 inches in 18^. Mark Wright now holds tiie rec-orct, with 13 feet 2 1-4 Inches, but the original height lias been improved up-on^no less than sovon times and tied once. In the weight events 14 feet 3 1-8 inches mark the gain between Queck.-berner's heave of 28- teet 3 1-4 inches with the ,5(l-pouud .hall and Jlatt Vc-Grath's 40 feet 0 1-8 Inches made In 1911.
