Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 16, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta KUIDA.Y, FFCBRIARY Hi, 1017 vTjiE^tJi'rinmipGE daily sikhald page Tl-im HERALD Spokane ^^atfN TJie boys had been in a clinch Rt the front of the .ring when Franks slipped over a left to the stomach which 'worri0d the visiting lad. St. John slipped as if to go to his knees, and Elddie landed another in the same spot. St. John went to the floor, doubled up, and rolled under the ropes ag if in palUi Referee filliaon did not fleem to make up his mind whether there Jiad been a foul or not, but on St. John being carried back Into the ring he went over and held up Pranks' hand to indicate.hlin the winner. The tiecislpn was pbpulixr, but there was HO much doubt attached to it that it was unsatiBtnctory. St. John declared afterwards' that he had been fouled by the second blow, and only wants another chance after a longer training period to show in n return match that be is better ihaii the local boy. A Fast Match But whatever may be the opinion of the-blow that put the Spokane lad out, or the dpinion of the referee's , decision, there isn't'a fan who saw j tfte.clasluwjiodo^s not say that it was alisbliitely the fa'stjest and hardest ma,tch ever staged in Lethbridge.

Both battles were hard fought. The score in the preliminary game was 2ti-14, and in the senior game 34-;i0, showing that the teams were very evenly matched and that some more brilliant basketball may be expected from these teams In the future. Never was there such cxcitumeut in the gymnasium, in the Kallery sat a squad of rah-rah boys under the yell master, and they literally lore the roof off the building. The military band was also in atrenilance, and played stirring airs during the evening. Great expectancy iiregnat,e((. the as on this occasion the old-time, enemies were once nioi'e clashing. The intermediates were a litile late at starting, but whe.-i they did get away, they set a fast gait:. It was 'soon apparent that the locals had the best of the game, their short passes and clever team work, bewildering the, invaders. The game was practically put on ice the first half, in this half Burr, who played a strong game throughout, put the sphere through the ring five times and Redd, four. Percy Irwin, for the ,"Y," is some fast player, and had he received the support he deserved, the score would undoubtedly have had a different complexion. T-j the second half .the visitors made an exciting come-back. They seemed fine work.; l^ut it..was then,too Is'te, and when (he wlii'stle bIe\Y,rUie .K A. nuinlct left iho floor with' another plume i!i their cap.

MILITARY TRAINING FOR BALL PLAYERS Chicago, Feb. 16.-The American League at Its schedule ineot-ifig at N;w York isevered relations with the Players Fraternity. The playing schedule for the coming season wac-atTopted. No chanQos were recommended for interpretation of playing rules.

President B. B. Johnson was authorized to prepare a memorial to the late Timothy H. Murnanc and contribute tO'a monument to be erected to IVlurnane at Boston. The National Commission meeting at New York approved the action of tlie Ainerican and National leagues In severing relations with the Players' Fraternity. It denied the reqiisst of Class AA and A clubs that the draft from those clubs be eliminated. Bob Shawkey signed a contract to pitch for the New York Americans, Harry Harper with Washington and Dick Rudolph with the Boston Nationals. Joe Tinker of the Columbus American Association club, purchased Outfielder Wade Killifer from Louisville and Pitcher Bob Harmon from Pittsburg. 'Vwii (iiniwi^, �!i?iH(i^' 'Ami StMihsr.

He admitted the fact'that St. John was not in the'Best condition, and Franks had It over him-ou that account. But none the leas the Spokane lad put up a game scrap that more than pleased the taps. _ Franks would have got the decision had th^' fight ' gone to the end, so that although the ending was unfortunate, the-result would not likely have been "different.

The locals had the -outh basket in the first half and that wp.^ always their lucky one. Conseqe.ent-ly, coupling this with some stellar team work, the homesters- managed to keep the ball in home territory and with accurate pitching, espo.j'ally by young Nalder and Meldruni, they succeeded In salting down 23 ;rce, rosy baskets in the first half.
