'I WELL-THEY TORE IT DOWN - 3 i - Ross, of Taber, Wins Consolation Cadillac Cup Stays in Lethbridge The big bonsplel is over and was a, howling success. With the finals in tho Consolation yesterday between Ross of Taber and W. J. Nelson of Lethbridge the last priafc went out of the city. The Visitors prize only remains, and that will be played off by the local Tinks between now and the end of the season. The Grang Challenge and the Breiv'ery will rest in Macleod for the next year, the Ellison goes to Carmangay while Ross of Taber will exhibit the Consolation, hav- ing won over the Nelson Lethbridge rink. Cadillac Cup Stays Here Two games were played by Lethbridge and Macleod for the Cadillac Cup last night as a wind-up to the spiel, and the Cadillac remains in Lethbridge as a result. Following are the scores: Lethbridge. Macleod. McNabb......1.6 McDonald .... 8 McLeod......16 Stewart......10 32 _ IS Camouflage So I wuz pretty They wuz nutty. Chin, Alberta, �i February, 22. Dear Editor, I'm the guy That bust the bntiic On th^Scy sldnws-ilk And got Insulted Hy a cop And swore I'd never Go to Lethbridge Any more * * *� * But yesterday 1 went up *   And never touched a drop. �  m Somehow I got into A place that had k'eVhy, the Edmonton basketball team played against the Lethbridge Y.M.C. a. and the Raymond A.C. basketball quintettes, during the Christmas vacation, and it now comes to light that representatives of the southern Y.M.C.A. and the athletic club, were proiesslouals of the deepest dye. At '.east the Journal's Calgary correspondent says so in an adjoining column and ;;tows quite waspish about What is going to happen to tho poor Edmonton-inns. They are not going to be allowed to play against Calgary .-in the provincial play-off, and will be lucky if thoy are not interned for even thanking of meeting Hill Dingle's pets. Business'ot turning pale. True, John Crozicr .v-kri! Calgary tot play two games \vhi!--r in Kdmonton,-specifying that tho fir: i grime was to i be of a championship n:i! is no doubt. Both teams were fighting till the las minute to gain suprt'm.H'y and Stirling, but the untiring t:i:'urU of Spack-man, finished strong.m. There is no use racking excuses, Stirling won and th:it is all there is to it. but for the sp'''-i;il truncation of a few pessimistic rms a few facts will not be amiss in an effort to clear up the mystery. First, the average v.. :-ht of the "Y" team is 452 lbs. avoir ���pnis, while that of the Stirling hu --s is crowding lltO lbs. close. How would two men wih such weigh':- kick in a boxing match? i Bushier nt"-thinking). Th'.m how much reach '' Iho farmer hoys on the locals. The local five have hud to stack lip against this kind ot" handf. i cap all season. Stirling's two grcnt-! est assets arc Spackman. the hm-ky 'hoy who has for yr.ars decorated the I line-Hp of their, and whose shooting ability is nor ,o be despised in any basketball community, and Mich-! olson, the giant '-mitre. Although the^ 'big boy is not a dead eye shot, his '.value is being able to place the ball i wherever he w;mts, off the toss-up. t This is Lethbrid;.v's greatest disad-; vantage. Nearly all signal combina-f tions start from centre, and if you jean not get the hall there you are lab-l oring under a handicap because [the ball haa to be taken from the op-jponcnts' territory before _a combination can be -started. ~ Did I hear a whispering voice say the Stirling boys were too classy for the locals? Not so you would notice it. Tho Stirling hoys themselves admit tho locals play a better combination and speedier game. It might be well to mention a few things about the junior game. The lo-i cals won easily, securing enough lead 'in the first, half to tuck away any Dickson....... 101 lfi5 184- -540 Sloan ...... 1(13 206- -524 Freestone..... 1-17 107- -4SS 131 13G 113- -3S0 Shover ........ 150 1G4 183- -407 S01 775 853- -2429 Y.

DeManbey and Hudson also j McGovern was reputed to have earned several hundred tiiousand dollars during his lighting career. After his retirement from the ring he conducted saloons at various times and was frequently In institutions because of ill-health. He was a free spender and his fortune had so diminished a few years ago that Samuel Harris, who was his manager at the height, of his boxing Miccess, raised a fund on McGovcrn's behalf-. From this money McGovern has received an income of $25 a week. igured in the scoring, while Fred Davis, an ex-Stirling player, seemed I to bo enjoying the chance of sticking one over his former team-mates. For the conquered the Addler brothers and Micholson played a good, steady game, and in the second half made things a little hotter for the homesters. The local junior team have lost only one game this your and that by points to Itnymond. They have a prot-ry good right, to declare themselves Southern Alberta champs. Now to clear up a few Inaccuracies In the Calgary dispatch, outside of tho amateur Question. The writer had the privilege of seeing the letter written by Dingle to John Crozier of Edmonton, and the Calgarlan distinctly said that the Calgary tournament was for the purpose of "deciding the Alberta championship." All this talk about arousing civic interest in the g"ame, losing $100 etc., Is the quintessence of btishwoir. Any time a Calgary team gives up $100 without being chloroformed there will be two moons in the sky. If money is so prevalent in athletic circles there they might dig up guarantees the old Calgary Callies owe to the Edmonton Swifts F.C. and the Calgary Lacrosse team owes, to the Edmonton outfit. All of which is ancient history,' but nevertheless true, COOGAN BEATS HARTLEY Providence, TU., Feb. 23.-Mel Coog. an of Newport, won the decision over I'ete Hartley of New York in a 1^-round bout at Woonsocket last night. Hartley was aggressive throughout but Coogan outpunched and outpointed him. 1 OLD CURLING TROPHY FANNED WAGNER, BASES "DRUNK" "llug.V llaymond was recalled In a fanfest in Now York the other day. There was only one "Hugs."

His face was black and perspiring*, bjal ho was happy. He had not forgotten to place a A WOMAN'S OBSERVATIONS Lethbridge, Feb. L'l, 151S. The Editor of Lethbridge Herald: - Dear Sir,-I would crave space in your paper to discuss the recent local bout or fight, and as 1 believe it is very unusual for a womanV to venture to comment on sports of this nature, I ask leniency of judgment on your part re my criticism of such performance in war time. I wish to state right here that I am not averse to clean sport but when a district like Lethbridge district fails to raise enough money to carry on Red Crass work for our men who are fighting in the mud and snow and blood in France and elsewhere to make this world safe for the coming generations and for our best ideals of liberty and equality, how can a club such as the Lethbridge Sports and Amusement club exist? or from what source comes the revenue of said club? How can men who cannot pledge any amount of money no matter how small to Red Cross work, on account of the high cost of living, afford to pay as high as from $l.u0 to $3.00 to watch a bout which has all the earmarks of a-what do you call it In-sport vernacular? Oh, yes, a frame up. A match that is fixed in other words or appears I to be from a woman's standpoint, for 'it is a well known fact that neither man would raise a fist without being guaranteed a certain amount of money. ! I do not want to pose as a kill-joy, but I don't you honestly t' ink that the $700 or there about that the man from the east jiut in his purse and the $500 or j there about that the local man gets, j could have been spent to better ad-; vantage and have left more real sat-r isfaction to the spenders if it had ! been utilized buying shirts for men overseas who are and wet and dirty. Of course, I grant you it would not be giving, those dear pets, the wherewithal to have a nice little blow-out until it is time, for another workout to get in shape for the next little bout, but I would like to say in all sincerity that in the opinion of the people who have given their husbands and sons and brothers also other relatives dear to them, and I am sure I do not overstep when I include our men who have been to the front, have done their bit and returned, t feel safe in saying that in the opinion of the last we feel that if those dear fighting sports must fight their places is on the battlefields of the allies or in military camps, getting in shape for the battlefields. Do you know that I heard a discussion tho other day as to whether the local fighter will be exempt from military service, one man really thinking that the fighter (?) has sufficient (pull) or influence to get exemption. How can men expect women to save and conserve, not that 'we are not willing to, j but what is the use, when we can go 1 down the streets of our city and hear ' such discussions as the above in ' uess places and on the streets. Then take a quotation from own paper, date Feb. 19. "More two hundred fans watched the workout at the Alberta. Cafe." Now could two hundred men. of course, there were no women there of this city meet in one place like that and not have in their number one father or brother or son 1 of a man who. is fighting in Flanders to keep back destruction from us, and I wonder did those men at that "brilliant" workout pause and think of the boys of their own flesh and blood who I are waiting every hour to get the order i to plunge into the bloodiest and most awful struggle thai lias ever been known, and still would go on and pay out from $l.u0 to $'1.0o each to see a draw fight. If such is the I want those men to pause and in doing so, recollect that there are women in your midst who are not sleeping nights, thinking oC the message which they- may receiva from "over there," at any time, and wondering if there1" will be bafadages and dressings and stretcher caps and other necessities for the broken, mangled and wounded who will be carried off that field of blood, or Mr. Kditor, if there was not one man in that two hundred at the workout, who had tha slightest interest in any man who is doing his duty in Flanders or else* where, what are they doing here? Y^hcre do they come from and what Is their occupation? Surely we are not to be led to believe that there are that many men in a city oj! this size who follow gambling for a livelihood, this is one point 1 would like have explained; for one can scarcely believe that int a comparatively small oity such a. shocking state of affairs is possible, especially if they are at all acquainted, with the life of the greatest democrat of the world who said in 18G5: "With, malico toward none; With charity for all; With firmness Jn the right, let us strive on to finish the work we ara in; to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne tha battle, and his widow* and his orphan -So do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves, and all nations." Nor caa one easily believe that the men left in our midst are all of the calibre of those of whom Bobby Burns said, "CUve fools their silks and knaves their wine but that their desire is to see come soon "When man to o'er shall brothers world that." And would the time man the be for a' and socks often cold in conclusion, Mr, Editor, 1 like to call your attention to the difference in attendance at this famous workout hi the Alberta Cafe and the meeting announced by the city council to be held in tho board of trade building, on Monday evening last, to arrange plans to raise money for Halifax relief. Nine brave souls put in an appearance and showed, thereby, in. terest in sending relief to those who are wounded and maimed and homeless, through 110 fault of their own. Surely this is man's inhumanity to man or so it seems to an onlooker. Thanking you for considerable spaca in your valuable paper and trusting to hear or see replies, I am. Sincerely, M. E. TAYLOR, General Delivery, Lethbridge* busi- f your than LEONARD SACRIFICES $65,000 According to "inside" advices, Benny Leonard has sacrificed a deal of coin since he abandoned his fistic proclivities to try to develop tho nephews of Uncle Sam at Camp Upton. It is well known that Benny was in line to collect, a barrel or two of golden sheck-I les after he won the championship, and he started in to do so, but then his duties at Yaphank called him to the-"front," and since he last took his patriotism down on Long Island Benny hasn't had time to collect anything - not even a shave. You ought to see him now!- You wouldn't think he was a "kid" champion any longer-but that hasn't anything to do with this story. Leonard has sacrificed no less than $65,000 since he donned the mitts to try to teach the soldiers at Upton how to use upper cuts, left jabs and right hooks on the kaiser's henchmen in the trenches "somewhere over there." 1 RANDALL SUSPENDED Montreal, Feb. 22.-Ken Randall of the Toronto N.H.L. team has been suspended by President Calder, primarily for his continued abuse of. referees and because he had not paid fines inipoaet on him during the season. - London, Out., Feb. 23.-The Thistle club won the annual Malahide medal games from the Loudon Curling club ! bucket of �ppl* i" thc coaI fender, last night by a score of 51 to 40.
