LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE THREE v*av; w*W iwi HERALD SPORT SECTION ��� ^SF Oft W � / Boxing Game in Lethbridge Suspended Till After War at Suggestion of Qty Dads Witt the; Bfranics-St. John match of 'Thursday night, the curtain is rung down on boxing, tor this season, and it will remain down' till after ,the war. This is the wish of Mayor 'Hardte, commissioner o� public safety, intimated to the Lethbridge Sports Club this morning, and acceded to by them, The commissioner is not taking a strong stand against boxing bouts In general and those pulled off by the club in particular, but - it is ' his opinion, would be more in keeping with tho times to call off boxing dhasvr'egtlirig tdr the present and until the war is over/ He'had only to make the request and the club granted it, receiving assurance from His ,..Worship that when the war is over no one will take a keener interest'in the sport than he will. He is more than satisfied that the bouts staged here this, winter have been clean and above board, and easily the best ever seen in the city. He haB boon present at every match and has been a keen supporter of the sport. The'bthef commissioners are at one with the mayor in his, suggestion that the sport be suspended for tho present, but hope to see it revived on the'same basis after the war. The visit of Joe Bayley has been called off. while there is no possibility ot.a .return match between St. John and Eddie Franks. The .. proposed Quy Sansom-Jaek Ellison wrestling match is also sot.forward several months. .";. PLAY BALL!

H �� y* i cflrst':thi&^yeari and ^Correspondingly,-the -Am^ricalreaaterh .teams go west.; Leading American Teams Coming Round to the Canadian Style of Play  Hamilton Herald:-The 1917 basketball guide,; just out, points in a rather--proud-.manner to the fact, that several;, of the, big American teams have adopted the open, short-passing Btyle of play. Hamiltonians who follow basketball know that this is the same system that Hamilton teams ha,vc followed for many years, and. the style by which local, teams have defeated .Detroit! Y. M, C. .A. so often. Their short, anappy; passes, with long shots practically out ..of the .question, have opened the eyes of the Detroit followers of the reanie, and it is understood that the, Detroiters have been practicing this play all seuson. Springfield, according to the guide, was the chief exponent of the open play last season. Prank'Harvey; star of tho Hamilton team several years ago, and coach for the past feW 'j*e"ars, is a great advo cate'of tlie open play and recent Hamilton) .trains owe,their success to him on this account." He is one of the best' basketball Coaches' the game has produced. Long-shots woui;l certainly not be tolerated by him, and the seniors ol" today who secured their early teaching at his bands are today teaching the 'same style. Dauny Webster, wlip is coaching tlie Y.M.C. A. junior O.B.A. team, has the youngsters working "''in great shape. 'Prank Harvey' always insisted tliat small teams Could easily defoat bigger men if they used tho short passing game, and this has been proved several times by the locals. He also claimed that the American but they should take It with good grace: Worse things have happened and they have had the best winter's n'r>" .-sport' ever afforded in ' Lethbridge. -''.,'' 0 0 0 To toll tho truth, Lethbridge-is the only spot on the niap of the west where the game lias had any success jthis winter. Winnipeg has had.a. few bouts but they have been so poorly-attended tbat the promoters quit cold. In Moose .law the last fight didn't pay-expenses. Calgary, dragged along, for a few events with six round goes, where the referee couldn't count ten because there 'were only nine in the house, while Edmonton, a couple of years ago the > boxing Mecca for Alberta, bus -done nothing!' The-'coast towns have not warmed up to tiii^ sport, although , professional hockey drew well at Vancouver. So taking it all round. Lethbridge^ has had the j best bills of any and the fans-have no reason to grouch. ooo- Anyway it is hotter. to,. emit now after a. good bout like th'e Pranks-St. John affair than take chalices of running into a flivver like another Hacker fiasco which would probably put' a crimp in the game for a couple of years. In spite of the somewhat unsatisfactory ending of the Thursday night card, fans are a unit in awarding it tho palm for the best, bill pulled off "during' the seas'on. ���It was that, without a doubt. In Ross and Pranks, Lethbridge has had the; pleasure of tracking; tjvj) of thfe best boys of their weight in Canada this winter, and when life gong sounds for round one in the sweet bye' and bye tho fans will all be there.' o o "o''"' There is one thing about thehouts this winter which should not be overlooked. "Every one has brought in numbers of fans from outside points, and they have never been disappointed. The bouts have .brought business to the city, and Lethbridge stands high with the fans throughout' the whole south country.' Another thing, | boxers all over the west, have leSirned f that. Lethbridge supports the-'game, | and they are willing to take a chanc.e\i on coming here? '"That'"helm' sopio., and 'will'.'.lie a 'fiiit(';,a'sset when the time comes to stage .boxing carnivals i here again. :,.( - - ' ,  , ... it., ..�. .....o''. .',6;-,,. \ ,;. , ;.- ; The Lethbridge Sports Club has j tried to give the fans a run for their! money all through the season, and believes it has done so, and in turn 'I thanks them for their support accorded the fisttc game. J i j o o ,. o , ... Mayor Hardie never missed a bout' all season. And he didn't go alto-, gether from a souse of duly either. | o' . p ' o I  With these few , remarks we pass, on to the next caravan-- - j . o o '. 6 . The local basketball' boys went j down to their first defent of tho sea-, Lson last Wednesday night when Ray- j mond stuck a plaster on them.
