Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 13, 1920, Lethbridge, Alberta PARR SIX iK DAILY HEHALD FUIDAX 1920 BRIiNJGING UP FATHER By G. McManus 1 YOU TO <0 DOT AND IF 60X OF IL .WORLD OF 0- Had Applied ;t Game But Heard Nothing Till Schedule Published The despatch from Montreal appear- ing In a recent Calgary paper will read keeu disappointment by all football'fans and everybody interest- ed in good clean sport. If the following Jtinvary Is cor- rect, and we doubt agt it is, lirldco has been given the go-by, for ,-vvo do hot Calgary 'as usual, extremely lucky In getting Do- minion Day for their big treat. This is on Ihcir return Journey, for they are scheduled to; play Vancouver, June'yjih. ;The nearest laternate pos- sibility. :s Bdmontou where they, arc to appear on Juno 12th. .Following the latter date, a week's sojourn at Banff is provided for. Tiio question arises, could we not get them here after tfco Edmonton Karno on June 12th, or coald it not arranged for them to return by tho Crow's Xesl, play here on June 30th, and leave for Calgary that night in time for the holiday game? When the possibility ot Newcastle _ United making tho tour .was. mooled, we urged the local Soccer As- sedation to get busy and secure a date, In1 order that Letbhrldge might participate in this treat, and Secre- lary Palerson wired Tom Watson ot the D.F.A. for a daie. Since that time no reply has been received, nor has anything further been dono beyond advising Prss, Blackburn of tho local action, and urging him to take the matter up over thero. Jlonlreal despatch says: schedule of tho tour of Newcastle Uni- ted soccer te-im is Montreal, Jlay 23; Toronto, May 21; Hamilton, Slay 25; Fort Julio 2 Winnipeg, Jtino 6; neglna, Juno 8: Saskatoon, June 8; Edmonton, June 12; Etop over Banff, Juno 19; Victoria, June 25; Vancouver, Juno K; Calgary, July 1; July 3; .Toronlo, July' 10; -Ottawa, July H; Montreal, July 17. "The trip will take them from'.Mon- r. treal to Vancouver with opening game being played at Montreal, May 22, and ihp final game of the tour July :TO 17. It is the first time in tbo history of sport that such an elaborate eched- ulo has been arranged with an Bng- lish team.

We have a large mining populatiou tribntory to the district well settled with Old'Country footballers who will be sadly disappointed If they are un- ablo to see this .club in action locally. Kindly advlsa mo at your eariy con- venience of the financial requirements etc., and if we can count on being in- cluded BNthe lour satisfactory ar- rangements can be arranged. fours faithfully, S.
