This is Stirling's first Invasion, since 1914 when tho Steed Bros, adorned their line-up. They,have developed almost entirly new material since then, only two of their old �enlor team playing, some of the Intermediates of*5 years ago, tilling in the remaining positions. Their line-up will very likely consist ot.Spackman and Brandley, forwards, Mlchdlson, centre; Ostlund and D. Micholson, guards. This will be Lethbrldge's first gan^e on their own floor since Raymond last visited this town three weeks ago and it will feel 'good to be- once more browsing upon the home pasture again. A few slight changes may be. effected upon the local team, but outslclo of that the .same quintet will represent the,"y". The first game Is billed for 8 o'clock.

The Dominions will bowl the "Y" jteam on the VY" alleys on Friday night. As many,)of. the bowlers who played Barons on Saturday, night, who pos, It's a sad and weary world after all. It seem? that some of the local bas-ketballersi went,to Fornio last Labor day and competed In the events there, cleaning up, Instead - of the usual prizes..such as barrels of flour shoes and handbags the Fernle Trades Council gave. real money, and thereby damned the whole Lethbridge basketball team. Wonderful to" relate the boys ran under their own names, and some, time ago they'frankly .wrote to the A. A. A. U. secretary stating the facts. They didn't want to compete In a championRhip tournament-under any suspicion, but thinking that as an effort was being i^iiade to build up the great winter game, and seeing thenar was on, they were ot the oplnion'that street amateur rulings wouldn't go for much. THe Calgary basketballera heard ot It, ind the result is that Calgary holds the amateur' championship, there being no eligible competing team -horrible luck. However, the Calgary fancy schemers should not forget that Mr. Bert Tailing a member of their this year's team was a member of the Lethbridge "pros" last year and having played in a game with Calgary against Edmonton this year, protessionalUes all the Calgary players Including tho redoubtable Bin Dinglo, Fish, Curie, Spenco, I'lnmmer, Dobson and nearly all the pink ot Calgary's : material. The whole question la this: � Is there such a thing as' a strict amateur, player In the province? ,It there is such an animal he, ought to be In a zoo or monagarle as a special vy^a of human being. Calgary can have the so-called amateur' championship anST aU>the glory of having not-won a game to attain it and the, "pros" will play a real chanTpldnahip la Iiethbrldge'a opinion. , , It you don't care to take our word tor what Calgary 'says. Just read from the Calgary jaerald. Read on Mac-Dutt:- Various compllcatlpnahaye arisen In provincial basketball clrclea this season,^ and interesting results will be the outcome ot the controversy Which is on between the Edmonton and,Calgary clubs, The boys ^n the northern city will be lucky if they get Into the championship series at all, that is the members of the barnstorming aggregation who traveled to several points In sotkth-em Alberta during Chrlstmaa week.' The Edraontonlansareonithe, verge of professionalism it they, are not now, real dyed-in-the-wool banned amateurs. Probably the baaketballers from the porthern city were not very well Informed about the teams they i were copeting with In the, L^hbridge and Raymond districts, but had they turned to the proper aiuthoritlea for.qnllght-enment, the) Edmonton boya would have discovered that they were pitted against profesaionala, pure and simple. The Lethbridge Ditaketball Xlub' had admitted to Y.M.C.A. league offlclala In Calgary that the members of the southern team are not eligible to compete In amateur conteata any more, unless reinstated by the Amateur Athletic Union;. Tho Edmonton team played this Lethbridge tribe on the Y.M.C.A, floor/at the southern city, and they also clashed with the Raymond/quintette. > An official of Ute baaketball league in Lethbridge wrote to tlie Y.M.C.A. executive of Calgary, in response to the invitation of the local league t,o'play: a aeries of games on the Calgary floor, and 8tate4 that aUbough they wquld be only too glad to ..join, in such a tournament, they would not be eligible on account of their n\en diverging from the paths of amateurism.

'They wan athletics now that the revival has been arousefl rebuked the Idea, thinking that the locals wanted to grasp everything In alght, Including the provincial championship and the proceeds of the games. The truth of the matter is, Calgary had no idea of deciding the provincial honors through this tournament, and as for the financial returns ot the matches, the league wag prepared to lose at least $100.
