Teams Invade Cardston to Settle Long Standing Dispute As To Supremacy Lethbridge and Raymond basketball teams will journey to Cardston tonight for the play-off so much talked about. These two teams will both have a big load off their chest after the game tonight as they have been having a difficult time deciding which were the better. Raymond came to Lethbridge and were beaten 46-29. Then Lethbridge went to Raymond and received the same warm reception, losing 42-26. This gave Lethbridge, counting points, the advantage by one, but to decide the controversy it was decided to play on a neutral floor, namely Cardston school gymnasium, so all aboard for Cardston tonight. + - h .*v\ * F .Vi'-y.'.'.v-' >:3 ^3 I NEAL ALLISON Sftover aind Willetts took a half hitch round Evans a;rwl Smith in the doubles even.t at Uie Dominilon alleys last night, tnking two out of three.

The totals of all these increased production estimates were as follows: Lignite Coal Drumheller District-- � (On basis of 300 working days per year .........

CONVENTION HELD AT FOREMOST (From Our Own Correspondent) Foremost, Feb. 23.-Weber Red Cross is busy selling tickets for the raffling of a horse presented by Mr. Skeiton, for the benefit of our wounded soldiers. The horse la a valuable one. Mrs. Win. Dick and Mrs. L. McKinnon have already sold many tickets. We trust that their efforts will be amply rewarded by a flowing purse held In the Methodist church last week. Clergymen of 'the Presbyterian and Methodist churches spoke. Demon-strations of C. S. E. T. were given. The church was crowded. Communications under this heading must bear the signatures of thq writers. BIDS THEM GODSPEED To the Editor of the HeraJd: - Dear Sir,-Kindly allow me spaed to say a few words in regard to Mr. j Geo. Ewing, who with his wife and little son, have passed out of the life of the people of Taber to take up their residence in the city of Fort William, a port at the head of t\\m Great Lakes. I might say a great sea port for that is what Fort William and Port Arthur \ will eventually become. Great shipbuilding interests will grow up there on the completion of the Georgian Bay canal when they will become the great shipping points for the grain and other produce ot these western provinces. Mr. Ewing came among us soma years ago, taking charge of the Eastern Township Bank, which was the first institution of the kind to locate here. Afterwards the Eastern Townships Bank was absorbed by the Canadian Bank of Commerce and Mr. Ewing was continued as manager of same. Being a young man ot good address, he was very successful in gaining the good will of the people ot Taber and surrounding country and j building up a large business for the bank which he represented. The Canadian Bank of Commerce Is "now showing its appreciation of his good work in the Taber district by selecting Mr. Ewing to represent them at Fort William where he will acquire experience in handing larger lines ot business. And should be prove a success at Fort William (of which I have no doubt) he will eventually rise stttl higher, nnd some day in the future, will be called to represent the Cana- for the greatest of all causes, that of | dian Bank of Commerce as a western the Red Cross. The West Committee of Foremost Red Cross met at Mrs. J. Carrington's home on Thursday. There was quite a large attendance of. members.

Only three members dissented. According to reports from Frankfort, it is more than likely that limited-rtound, no-decisiou bouts will he legalized in Kentucky. It is said tha;t both the house and sen-ate committees have voted unanimously to report favorably on the bills that have been presented. The bills provide for 'the creation of a boxing commission to havo supervision over all comte^ts and prescribe the manner in whl-oli all bouts shall be conducted. There aro two ways of rolling up a fortune quickly in the ring game. One is to box infrequently for large guarantees-the Mike Gibbons system. The other is to fight once or twice a week, sometimes five times in two weeks, aiid average around 40 or more fights in a year-this has been the T , Harry Greb plan. !?yi11n-Uo?i;anhc^ The objections to the Phantom's pro- ^ Hliams-Jennings cedure is that there are only a few ] ^ds\,'rec1?t0116. boxers who are prominent enough to , ^een-uai k .. . get away with it, a.nd the flaw in ^eborsotzig-Sloan Greb's system -is that few boxers' are ' ".urra>;i;.1.^ '' ' rugged enough to .stand it. i bhovcr-\Villetta . ' "lint ruggodnc&s la Greb's chief asset, mercer-w ains   and so far the strain lias not begun to tell on him. He has had 118 fights since the''Spring of 1913. It is self-evident, however, that he can't keep his pace up. Among those who have tried and failed may be enumerated Knockout Brown, the lightweight, Battling Nelson and Jack Dillon. So the trick is to get the kale while ] you are strong, and this is just what Greb is accomplishing, He took part In 37 fights in 1917, in which he boxed 297 rounds. He took down for his "end" the tidy sum of $28,753, which is the banner sum for a'ny middleweight in the country for 1917. - Ucbersetzig-Sloaji vs Irwin-Dc Manbey.

Total estimated increase of all classes of coal upon the basis of 300 working days' to the year ............... 4,250,000 The operators niado it plain that t.ho foregoing estimated increases are, based upon the same amount of labor j [as is now available and with "ample! transportation facilities." � ha-o returned from the States. Mrs. Ktngsburg has returned from' Great Falls, Mont. / The Lethbridge-Manyberries train had a tough time getting into Foremost. She waia nine hours overdue. The drififcs on the line were not deep but were very densely packed. A Sunday School convention was director of that institution. Mr, Ewing will be missed by many in Taber as he was a Jovial young gentleman, taking part in. all sports, and giving a helping hand in everything that was for the welfare of tha town. The Hermit especially, will misa his friendly visits to his cell, and aa too will Silver Locks, and they now take the liberty of wishing him an4 his family health and happiness, in their new home at the head ot tha Great Lakes.
