The K.' A. yell crew were there in all their glory, along with, the loyal Lethbridgeites, making the gymnasium roar with their choice assortment of "yells." The big game started with the "moose centres," Lund and Walker, forming the hub of play, both putting up a swell brand of basketball. Walker used his experience to good advantage in every department of the game. Dunsworth led in the evening's scoring with 25 points to his credit. Meldrum, Raymond's heavy scorer, shot spectacularly in the first halt, Bcoring 6 baskets. A. Kane of the locals got on to his style, though, and held him to one lone basket in the second halt. Kane had plenty to keep him occupied during the evening. Raymond started with a rush, taking a six point lead before the locals got their bearings properly. It seemed that they would keep that and add more to it, as they put .up a splendid combination and, with TO-DAY'S $porf Nummary .

Curtin of Deo.orah, Iowa. was. elected 'president and W. H. Smoilinger of Iron Mountain, Mo., secretary. The racing dates allotted follow. Peoria, 111., week of August S; Burlington, Iowa, week of August 13; Omaha, Neb., week of August 20; Pes Moines, Iowa, week of August 27; Hamline, Minn., week of September 1; Milwaukee., week of September 7; Peoria, 111., (second .meet), week of September 22; Sodalia, Mo., week of September 24, The member for Wetaslchvin, commenting on the legislation proposed for the aid of the homesteader and the man who held .unpatented land said it would have a most beneficial influ-1 ence in adding to the comfort and well being of deserving classes of the community as well as aiding mater ially iu the development of the livestock industry of the province. Mr. Hillocks said lie wanted to per sonally put himself on record as being absolutely in sympathy with the development of a provincial system of trunk roads which he said was one of the most important things for the development of the commercial and agricultural life of the province. The member was proceeding to speak about roads being blown or washed away. 'Hon. Chas. Stewart, interrupting, said the member had on numerous occasions made reference to roads blowing away. What road did he refer to? "I want to tell him I know of no particular road in this province that is blowing away on which the government is expending money." �..., V Mr. Hillocks replied that he was making a general statement concerning the depreciation of roads by weather conditions and the minister of public works co.uid'riot draw anything more out of what 'he had said than that. .: .- - .; . He' suggested; j'tlxat. trunk roads should be laid in'a./macadamized form so that they woiild^ not deteriorate. The' next point the member for Calgary North was proceeding to deal with was the agricultural schools, when the Hon. Duncan Marshall interjected that the minister of agriculture of the province of Ontario, who should be a fair authority, said the minister, wrote him that he had established one school exactly on the Alberta plan and he hoped it was only the beginning of four or five in .Ontario, Mr. Hillocks, said his criticism was against spending.any more money now. Dealing with the subject of tech-nicar education the member for Cal-! fcary" North stated that the Dominion I Vancouver, B. C, Feb. L'3.-F"red Ion and George Irvine, Pacific Coast hockey officials, have been named by the Pacific Coast Hockey association to handle the world's series which starts on the coast March l'.i. President Frank Patrick today forwarded their names to the National Hockey association and expected that the selection will be confirmed. President Patrick also stated today that he had questioned the eligibility of Denneny, the former Toronto player, whoso name appears on the Ottawa list, in the event of the Senators qualifying for the western trip. Hockey Scores Spokane 7, Seattle 9. government was giving a dollar for dollar according to what the province wanted to contribute. Premier, Sifton corrected him by stating that no money had been voted as yet and he knew nothing definite. In conversation, Sir Robert Borden had said that the federal government proposed to give $1,000,000 which would be divided between the provinces pro rata, but the matter had not then been brought heforc the executive council. The matter, said the premier, would be outBide of politics and would be dealt with through the educational departments of the provinces. He had no doubt the Dominion government would do what Sir Robert Borden had intimated. Dismissing the subject of hospitals Mr. Hillocks said it was not sufficient to say to the rural municipalities "you may co-ordinate or co-operate if you see fit." The legislation should be mandatory to compel them to co-operate to provide hospital facilities. Then the proposed legislation, he asserted, did not alter the situation in the cities at all and would not prevent people coming in from the country districts using the. city hospitals and becoming a burden on the city ratepayers. He hoped legislation would be brought down to take this into consideration. ECONOMICAL POWER POWER-Power is the very life of your car.
