"I am going to put my money on St. John," said cine fan yesterday. "A friend who has seen him in action Seattle tells me he is easily one of the best boys of his weight on Aie coast, and thinks he can beat Franks." [' There are nof. matiy - who wlU go this far, for the local fbliowbrs of the ring have a. hui^e , admiration for Franks' aggressiveiiesB and speed, and think he will come put with a decision at the worst. But all agree that the middle name of tonight's go will be "Speed," with lots more left to burn. It la going to be a new sensation for | the fans., M. Sadowski's appearance tonight will be the first since, he met Charlie Jones early in the winter. He is going up against a nifty lad and this preliminary will be all'to "the merry.

He is an old hand at the { wrestling game and can take care of himself in the ring. Marquis of Queensjbtury Rule^ To Govern Games In Future I^rofesBlonal hockey games have become so rough recently at the To-'Tohtb Arena, that E. W. Ferguson of the Montreal Herald shoots the following sarcastic darts at the Queen City magnates^' Howard McNamara was barred from last Sight's match. The referee dls-cot'ered that-he.was wearing,a horseshoe, in his glove, "It's only for luck.r dVlcNamara pleaded, but Referee Wood ,paid it might not be lucky for the Other fellow. As a preliminary the next Tq-'roiitoB228th meeting there will'be a "*�ttl�'fbyaf" 'ana'' three . ten,rpund Ji?ut centre.,man Walker, who stands about six feet tliree Inches In his socks, was" the centre of attraction. He'was tall and also very speedy, and fed the forwards well. He sure led Roger Lund a merry chase. Thei forwards-were unerring shots, and the guards'' s'iib-ceeded very well In holding the iLe^h-bridge forwards down. ]' The boys did not get the nam.ies of all the Raymond players, but they lined ,up something like this: A return i%.teh has been arranged for tomorrow night at the ', so come out and 'rootI rootI root!

Raymond Hampden Nalder Walker Stevens Woolf The preliminary match was a. humdinger. The Raymond juniors staclc-ed up against the local juniors; with a clash. Like the seniors in the first half the Lethbridge boys aeetned unable to make out the lay of the 'land. The Raymond\boys then proceeded to ring up a 19 to 5 score. In the second l)alf the local team got started and took their turn in the scoring, having a slight advantage. When the final bell rang the score was 2G to 14 in favor of Raymond. The Lethbridge juniors, however, are just aching to get another go at them oii our floor. Percy Irwin played a whale .of a game, makf!^ practically all the Lethbridge points. He was the centre of attraction during the eh ire game. The Raymond forwards w 3re very good jshots and took some holding" down.
