Meantime Weeks is under the weather and will not be back in the ring for some months. Einert weighs 154 and Bishop wants to match him with Ross here provided Ross will make 160.

Local 'Spiel Away to Good Start Fine List of Silverware Hung Up Many Visitors in City For Big Sporting Events--Weeks Not Champion Now I With the bonspielers In the city and the Boss -Brennan ten round go at the Majestic tomorrow night Lethbrydge is going to have more than its usual share of sport this week. Large numbers of visitors are here for the events. Frankie K.O. Brennan arrived in �the city today for his bout tomorrow night. He left Chicago oh Friday afternoon, and was met at Swift Current by L. S. Brown of the local club, who returned with him from there. Brennan is in perfect condition and it is understood he will exhibit his ability at a workout this evenng in the Alberta Buffet gym. Ross Confident Ross has also concluded his training, and declares that he is in better condition than he had ever been for r. match here. He has trained religiously, and finds his wind better, his muscles quicker and his judgment of distance yreatly improved. .He declared he will put up the best scrap of his career tomorrow night. In fact Tuesday night's bout should be easily the best ever staged here, everything considered. K.O. Brennan has the widest reputation of any man ever brought to Lethbridge for a ring battle, and the local club is under much heavier expense in bringing him than was the case with Harrison who wanted to make the tour arid came on favorable terms. There is said tf> be some criticism in some quarters over the fact thp.t the seat prices have been slightly advanced for tomorrow night, but the local club explains that it was impossible to meet the guarantee and transportation expenses of Brennan at the old figure, and knowing that the fans were strong for seeing the best man who could be se-: cured they had no hesitation In going after him and setting the prices accordingly. Billy Not Champ. It will interest the fans to learn (jj)that Billy Weeks is no longer Canadian middleweight champion. Billy is out of the game just at present. The local Sports Club had written "Biddy" Bishop some time ago offering to meet Weeks' terms for a match here with Ross, but a letter from Bishop on Saturday dispelled present Hopes that the long-wished-for bout would be staged. Billy lost to Einert, -a Cincinnati middleweight not long ago, Cincinnati.

AMONG THOSE PRESENT ? ? ? �>* The bonspielers went over the top on the 10 o'clock draw, eight local rinks being drawn against each other. There is also a one "o'clock draw of eight local rinks. The outside rinks, all come in on the afternoon trains so the draws are being held for them. There are ten outside rinks and eleven or twelve locals, that's fair enough. Vulcan, Carmangay, Granum, Clares-holm, Macleod, Taber and Bow Island all have rinks here. Pretty representative of Southern Alberta's best. When you have Jack Ross and Tom Henderson of Taber and Orville Stewart of Macleod all performing with the local stars, there is something bound to drop. Did you road the "Curlers Lament" or what happened to McNabb's rink. Tho author is unknown and if he is wise he ,will remain that way. Some effort. 1 Through an unfortunate misunderstanding the Cadillac games were not played on Saturday night and Aird and Kirkham loose the cup by default. Why all these anxious enquiries about Pernio or Cranbrook rinks. Is it personal or selfish interest. There will be no black trunk or granite teapot at the rink. Alberta is hot in B. C. Doc Gibson won the Colts competition and'the Pagnuello cup. He says the reason ho run up suAi a large score in the last game was because ho had a well known Vet to take care of his Colts. Aird won the City Championship from Dr. Leech in a hard fought battle Saturday afternoon, margin of one point. He gets his name on the Wright Shield for 1918. Dinna ye gloor at me Mac* I did nae write the "Curlers Lament." CLOSER RELATION8 OF GOVT. AND THE ARMY Amsterdam, Feb. 18.-The Official Gazette in Vienna and Budapest publish a letter from Emperor Charles expressing tho wish to create closer relationship between the army and Count Czernin, the imperial foreign minister, who, finding his support in the army's profitable, has laid the first foundation for a general peace. Count Czernin is appointed an honory major general in recognition of his success. Emperor Charles also has decorated several dlplomates connected with the negotiations at Brest-Litovsk. Declaring that the ravages of venereal diseases' are more terrible than those of consumption. Dr. Galbraith, the speaker at the Forum yesterday afternoon stated his belief that the time seemed to be approaching when tho public would demand tho control and, as far as possible,, cure of the diseases for the protection of the health of the public. He believed the war had brought about a different conception on the part of the public, and that a campaign of education of both tho laity and the medical profession, with greater co-op eration, would be instituted winch would result in some public health measures being taken in connection with syphilis and gonorrhoea. Answering the question as to whether it was possible to control the diseases, Dr. Galbraith pointed out what had beeu done in West Australia within tho past couple of years where registration of the disease with more or less free medical treatment is now in order. There is a certain measure of secrecy preserved about these matters in West Australia, and Dr. Galbraith believes that Canada, where very little has been done as yet, might well follow this lead. As to cure, he stated that great strides had been made, and while it could not be stated that a positive cure could be effected in1 all cases, tho latest developments in medical science had made detection and cure much more easy. Mayor Hardie discussed tho subject shortly, dealing with the findings of vice investigations in large cities and also in England since the outbreak of tho war. In the latter connection he said the London report showed that eight percent of the male population was diseased, and of these six percent! were infected by street walkers while' only two percent became infected by frequenting houses of ill fame. The mayor believed the disease should be supervised as smallpox and every effort made to effect a cure. Scrgt. Cottingham stated that ho did not think the puhlic of Alberta should become unduly alarmed about the prevalence of venereal diseases in this province for the reason that he did not believe tho diseases were prevalent. He said that in going about the province witli the medical board, he had been present at the examination of over 7,000 young Albertans and he would venture to say that less than one percent were diseased. Of these very few wero suffering from syphilis. Lethbridge board had found about six cases. ' Sergt. Cottingham also stated his j opinion that venereal diseases were � more prevalent in VLothbridge than i iu Calgary, and he gave the reason as i the fact that Lethbridge has a recog- � nized restricted area and Calgary had ] none. | Dr. Galbraith in his concluding remarks voiced the opinion that the re-'stiicted district with inspection was hard to control, and gave a. false sense tj� security.
