Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 27, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta SECTION '-T Bob. Moha is the Original Hard Luck Man of the AS CUB LEADER Baseball Not a Bed of Rosed, He Finds-Will Give Chi. . Good Team '''PO&'MOHA Bob Moha, of 'Milwaukee, though' he may be, may never We a champion of the prize ring,- but he can give most of Jhe other fighters cards and - spades and still lead them when it cornea to misfortune. Time..and again Moha has had nice bunches of coin in sight, only' to have them yanked away through the per-verseness of fate before he could get bis hooks on them. His trip to New fiTork,' where match after match "was called-off, bad been forgotten and he was off'ohr'a new taok, but the old hoodoo* pursued him. ' > n;aT.fl8,4WsQoo�in boxing oom-JUiesiori gave the lightweight champion the limit of punishment for stalling through 10'rounds with Richie Mitchell here; Welsh received a-year's layoff. The -commission announces, moreoWr, that they would refuse to sanction any future show in which he isvbilled in this atate. t Welsh, failed to -put in an "/appearance at the hearing when his case was called. He submitted his defense in the form of .an. affidavit' by mail, In which, he claimed that he was tricKen with lllnesB just'after entering, the ring and -was compelled to tall in order, to save himself from a knockout.  Harry Pollock, .Welsh's manager, added a letter to the champion's statement in which he declared that Welsh-was'suffering from an attack of grippe;' ;' r^ ROLLER SKATING RECORD GOES Denver, Col., Feb. 27.-A world's record is' Baid. to have, been' broken here last night, by Robert Wheeler of Den-"ver.in"ia-24-hour roller skating endurance race in which, he travelled 281 �8-14 mlle'B.' The "record, it was claimed, was 280 miles, done in Paris In 1908. CURLING George C. Rice, one of Chicago's best posted baseball writers, recently printed a yarn to the effect that Charley Weeghman is tiring of Iris job as president of th�- Cubs and would like to "get out from under." No doubt Rice has printed the "dope" correctly, and when one stops to consider Weeghman's position no one can blame him if he should be getting weary of the responsibilities that are loaded on his shoulders. Unfortunately foi' Weeghman,: he got Into the1 baseball business in troublous times. As a Federal leaguer he was. up against a losing proposition from the jump, and as president of the Cubs' he found it necessary to find a manager who would satisfy the fans of Chicago. During the winter, baseball' mag^-nates have had some very serious problems to thrash out, and, all in ajl, Weeghman's experiences have been anything but exhilarating. Rice says that Weeghman would step down and out if he could do so gracefully. But as no path seems to be open to him he will buckle into his tasks as president of the Cubs with an iron-bound determination.to give Chicago a winner. This-'is just the kind of stuff that baseball must have, and today, there is not a more likable fellow'in the big leagues than Charley Weeghman. That he will eventually come out to the good is the belief of all who know him,, yet no one who is acquainted with the ins and outs of "the game in the lean years could blame him for a step down and out if he saw- a graceful chance. , ~-~ L  * * ?

The guns are those held in reserve for the arming of naval auxiliaries in time of war, but they could be used for defensive armament for merchant-ships: The navy officials appear to agree.that convoying is not a practical step. It is pointed out that "the British have'not found it desirable. Use of navy ships for that purpose, would break up the fleet organization and render much more difficult the' task of keeping the service ready for actual war. GIRLS!
