OOESNT THE BRIDE LOOK WHILE THEY ARE *)AYIN'|p Ross go Into t a battle like a beai I three-minuto rour R ass' sparring partner exactly. He's only a little bigger than a minute, but he is willing to stack up against anything that can be brought along between 115 and 125 pounds. But he can handle a big battier and get him In trim and keep him in trim, and incidentally ho can infuse a little ginger and speed into workouts which ginger and speed are very essential commodiities when going up against a battier of Harrison's ability. \Ross has been handicapped all season for lack of training quarters, but he has overcome this difficulty. On Monday the local ring favorite and Harry Hudson took over the Plara cabaret as a going concern, and a ring Is being erected on the second floor with all the gym paraphernalia necessary for training quarters)) .Ross states that the Plaza wli: be .handled along strict cabaret lines, and his own popularity will do much to make the place popular. He will work out In the new^ place this week, and on Harrison's arrival he also will likely work out there. Edmonton Is now claiming the provinolal basketball championship, according to the Edmonton Journal. Rather early'in the season to start grabbing off championship honors. Is It not? It's a long time till March 31, and much may happen In the meantime. This is not an effort to detract from the success of the Edmonton team's tour last week. They deserve nil the credit they con get for their three successive wins, .but there was nothing said about the tour being a bid for the championship and to call it such now is rather far-fetched. There will be championship games pulled off later but the competing teams will have to have earned the right to challenge and defend before a real championship struggle can be staged. Which reminds us that there hasn't been much done In the way of organizing a provincial association under which championship series can be arranged. Alberta is due to take greater interest in basketball as time goes on, and It would be a wise move to form some sort of organization to supervise the sport so that a team on returning from a barnstorming trip arranged by itself could not return home and, if successful, calmly claim the provincial championship. Here Is the Edmonton Journal report of the tour of the Capital quintet: As a result of their southern trip which termlnetted at Raymond, Saturday night, the All-Stars from the Edmonton Senior Basketball league have brought the Alberta championship to Edmonton for the first time In some years. The tour started with a victory over the Calgary Y.M.C.A. on Thursday night, when the Edmonton margin was ten points. On Friday night the All-Stars decisively defeated Lethbridge by a score of 55 to 40 after being behind at half time, 27 to 24. John Crozier and G. Parney played a fine game on the forward line, their shooting being deadly at all times. The tour came-to an end-on Saturday night at Raymond when Edmonton won by 38 to 30. The game was played under unfavorable conditions^ the visitors being handicapped Tjy the small floor and the poor accommodations for the spectators, who swarmed out on the playing surface at ail times. G. Parney accounted for 13 baskets, of which seven were from free throws while John Crozier added 15 points to the Edmonton total. feT TWO WAYS N6\"|-Comilo Mack, inanaMlladelphla Atli lellcs, rU league club, . has'uAitoher who cau such extraordl-laB nicknamed as It happens, late niune, (ov Leslie Joseph export In the huvl nary him that t > ? ? ?

Gene Melady, Cad -Mount Clemens meeting last February were from Canada, and such were the repprts taken homo by the horsemen that there will be plenty of recruits when the big meeting opens at Clinton View park on January 2S. 100 Horses in Training But the Canadians will not have it all their own way this time, as there are more than two dozen horses in training at Cranwood now and fully as many Michigan horses are being fitted at the Mount Clemens, Dexter Park and other tracks in this vicinity. Among them there should be developed soniPthlng like 100 horses, and in that event the annual meeting at Mount Clemens will be something that will start the ball rolling for the 1918 season. With Cranwood racing two weeks before the opening at Mount Clemens and either Findlay or Akron following the Bath City there will be five weeks of sport in sight and the Canadians are not overloolcing it. Chilcott to Compete Chilcott, 2:11 1-4, that looked like one of the good things for the last M. & M. and then went wrong, Is'doing finely at Toronto. This means that Ingars, 2:11 1-4, have a job to win the 2:12 trot. These are two ot the best ice trotters ever seen, and as Ohio expects to contribute as many, it not more, the class will be interesting. On the Jlount Clemens program the 2:13 trot appears, but It has been changed to a 2:12 class to lot in these speedy things. So many of the owners and trainers have come out flat-footed in favor ot the three-heat plan that there may be a revolution in racing down the big line next year. The petition ot those whoso interest is greatest -will be presented to the stewards of the grand circuit at Columbus In January, hacked up by arguments which serve to prove this is to be tho ideal way ot conducting races.
