CONFIDENTIAL, BUT ALL HEARD Three Deaf Baseball Officials Held '  Conference � -^ "Speaking of rlclisblts in baseball, said Jack Hendricks, now Cardinal manager, "about tho best I remdmbor was a three cornered conference between Hanic O'Day, Charlie Thomas wul Jack McCarthy, (n'the time -' >---.�� \ - - _ The I,eth bridge "Y" basketball teams wefit to Stirling last night, winning tho junior game but receiving a seveie drubbing by the seniors. -The scoria respectively were 33-1,7 and 30-65. The first game, although well contested, was an easy victory for the "Y". The Stirling boys, It Is easy to see, were green, and although they played good combination, the. shooting was not accurate. The local ind team, at first lost in the mysteries ot tho strange floor, played,a good game all the \yay through, but their shooting was poor in places. For the locals Wilf Murray played a whirlwind game, making continuous brilliant individual dribbling plays down' tho floor which very often meant a basket for the "Y". Jack Shand played his usual steady gaino. Do Manbey played a good game at centre, while Pickett,.al-though ho has not practiced for over a. Mlcholson held on the .wall, there be Ing no ends out. Irish Kane hurt his ankle in the first half, M. Duusworfii going guard and Wilf Jlurray playing fonvard after having "played a full game. Tho local's combination was superior to that ot the Stirling team, and some good shooting was done. Perk Irwin securing 0 nice field baskets. Nobody on the local team starred, but all' played about the same game. �The line-up and scores ot the senijr game were: , Stirling Lethbridge Forwards Biiandloy C L. Dunsworth 9 Spackman '^7 M.

Young was in the game to his beat the full time. > , For the losers, ^, Mlcholson and tho Addlcr brothers played a strpng game, and will undoubtedly be tough customers after a little more practice. The senior game was a scream. Big Mlcholson and G, Spackman spilled the beans. These two giants were In their glory last, night as never beforo, doing all tho scoring tor Stirling. The locals were at a complete loss on their floor, the low celling, the bread baskets around tlio lights and the baskets next to the wall with no ends out, together with the superior playing of Spackman and Mlcholson would spell defeat to the best. They, siacur^d enough points to win many a game, but It was impossiblo to, hold Mlcholson, the gigantic man inountain at centre, and Spackma:n, who missed few chances, Hero Is the way they .did It. Mlcholson on one!, side and Spackman on tho other. Mlcholson would miss and Spackman would grab the ball a6 It cKine over and he would shoot and very UUely miss for Mlcholson to take another shot, which'If ho missed Spackman would nearly be sure to get the^next time. What were tho "V" boys doing all this tim^? Why, thoy wore Jumping up and dbW'iij hopelessly trying to;reach' (he ball,' which O'DOWD ACCEPTS ALL MATCHES Hasi Adopted Right Course, in IVIeet-1^ Ing All Contenders Mike O'Dowd, the now claimant ot the mlddiewelglit tilie, is to be congratulated on one thing-no matter whether ho is the logitimale champion or not, he is adopting the right by agreeing to meet - any man in the division. Henry Greb, tho Pittsburg contender, and also claimant of the title before Ai McCoy was put down and out by O'Dowd, has been matched with Mike for a lO-romid battle at St. Paul February 22, tlie weight to bo at the limit-158 pounds. It shows a' disposition on the part o� both lads to settle the dlsptite as to the championship, even though It is in a no-declslon contest. There will probably be a winner either way and tho lads recognize the tact that the man getting the popular verdict will be hailed as the champion. Mike Gibbons is master ot both lads when It comes to boxing at the middleweight limit, but as Mike has been lax In arranging matches'of that kind and has always "steered away from tho long distance events, it is only fair to recognize O'Dowd or Greb as the titleholder and let them, defend the same ngainsttall comers. If there is a winner on February 22 it would be a groat thing tor tho game If Mike Gibbons would consent to meet the ono to got the verdict and thus bring about a champion without any further argument as to claims, etc. Gibbons really owes It to tho game to arrange a match of that kind and at tho same time It would no doubt bring good returns, financially, to Michael, With ills .constant training In the military camp,' where he is instructor, he would be in fine shape to start work for a raafolv'of that kind, and there are thousands of boxing, .fans who would lie intoreslod and eager to see it go through.
