VOU DIDN'T COME HOME WITH IT-LAST TAirS BATTLING Lightweight Champ Who Boxes Here March 7th Learned Lot in East Clwie Talt, the nineteen year old Kghtweight champion of Canada it |n Winnipeg, but It is more than likely that he wilt arrive In Lethbridge thia week for his coming bout with Benny Haskell, the leading Winnipeg lightweight bat. tier which taktfa place here on Thursday, March 7th. Clonle states in a letter that the levers of boxing will see a great Imprevamsnt In him'slnce he defeated Jack Wh'ltey here last fall by[ th� knockout ^route in four rounds. His trip east did hini good, his. bouts .with Erne and 'Rocky Kansas of Buffalo teaching him many Ihlngs'to learn about mixing It at close quarters but he la young and appears ,to be willing so should go a long way yet. He has promised to meet Phil Bloom here and if he dees he will have an opportunity of learning still more. The groat three-ringed Heinle Zlz was Itirod by a companion Into a crowd standing around a recruiting booth. He arrived just !n time to hear the speaker exclaim; ' ! "We want to show these Huns that America has soldiers who can not only fight, but THINK. Heinle Ziin shitted uneasily from his right to his left foot and moved, his "cud" over Into the adjoining cheek. "W6 want to show these barbarians," continued the orator vehemontly, "the best sinew and BONE of our nation," and his vacillating . index finger stopped momentarily aa it pointed in the general direction of Heinie.Zini.

Barney, recently engaged in a three-heat race With Louis Chevrolet and won. but ill spite of his victory ho discovered that hla end, as a race driver, was at hand. Th^s Ja how ho explain^ his decision: ' "I wad tired to ' death in tho last five miles and had a tire, blo\vn out I ..would have been helpless. My arms crahiped and I icould not grip tho wheel at all. In the last five mllfs I drove with ' my left foreairm huiK across the wheel, controlling It by gripping tho tape on the wheel with the sleeve of ray, coat. I got away with it, but I realized right there how It is champions In - other lines loso out. They think they are as good its over and feel fine until tho pinch comos, and then they aro simply not there. I have boaten tho game longer than any other driver In the busU ness, but I know I was not thoro lllfo I used to bo In, that race against Chevrolet. I was in iny homo town arid dltV not want to bo beaten, so I suppose F gave up more than ho did, but'I felt n-'niilllon years .old at tho finish. I Wiirgo 'bn driving exhibitions as long as I'thlnk Z can pleaso (ho public, but when'I cannot, I will quit; I drew bigger crowds last i year than ev�r before, and I like the game hut my racing days are t^bout over," member for the Lethbrldge riding, W. A. Buchanan, In his opening remark .Mr. Buchanan said that he was pleased to be present at tho formal opening ot tho school. Ho,was not surprised at such a school being built in the Nobleford district a's for some time the people of, that district had been noted for their progresslvoness and one of the best evidences of progress was the increasing ot school facilitios. At the present time education was of the utmost value to- all and It was only by good educations that we would ha able to malce good citizens for .tho future. At the present time we were living In the greatest struggle that the world had ever had In its hlstoryiand out ot this war it was hoped by all that there would corns a bettor world. On .all neopio there wero Jajd great rospbnsl-blUtles but the speaker thought that the greatest dt all were laid upon^ tho teachers of the'children, >3'it .was from, the children of the present that tho citizens of the future were to (jomo. it the education of those children was good then tho type ot citizenship that would he produced would be good. Ho urged also tho great importance of tho consolidated school and hoped that soon in the future that sc lool that was being � opened  would ]ia the centre ot a consolidated area. This type ot Hohool gave to the young people greater education advantages' than could even bo obtained In the ono roomed uchool'' wliich was generally all that was seen in the districts .on the prairies. Another factor that gooQ schools brought was that they could bo made tlie centre ^ot life foi^ the community and so make country life more attractive to the farmer. The farmer was. now looked upon as the saviour of the world, as the speaker asserted that tho war could not be won only with men and guns but would be won by; the farmer who was providing the food necessary to fe^ the wprld. The. school should also be the centre of the Intellectual life of tho district for the\ older people,' moving picture shows, good lectures etc., should be held in the school which would t^nd 'to elevate the whole, ot the social lite. To such a speaker as Mr. Buchanan, ho address would be complete which did not contain a reference (o the war.' The speaker urged upon all tlie~ great need of the conserving .bt. the food supply. It was the triitli to 'say that at tho present time the world was facing starvation and in an eloquent ap-. peal, Mr. Buchanan aaked allnot to save food but to those iwhoviwi, , producers to produce mora. � la ittta's past the producers bad nobly .doii�>' their duty but they were still urgadvt-'' keep and do more.
