Saturday evening the first real games of the season were played at the lo-�al rink. The ice was in good condition, and fast, with the result that the-igames were fought, strictly on the liierits of the contestants' ability, and after the players became warmed to the game, some real old curling atmosphere was in-circulation. The weather bears a rosy tint from the curlers point of view, and no chances on Chinook weather will be taken, and the annual opening competition, Vice-President's rink versus President's, will bs commenced to-Jiight.

Zbj'szko undertfiWea to throw the big old country champion twice within an hour or forfeit his share of the purse. Connolly thinks the Pole has bitten off a much larger chunk than $te can healthfully masticate, and is going into training immediately that he may be in the best condition possible to uphold the fine reputation he has already -built up for himself. The match ought to prove the best ever seen in Vancouver, and- Mcln-tyre's success in getting the two together will be a matter of much pleasure to the--followers of the mat game. Failing to win the handicap, the bout will go to a finish, the Pole's manager insisting upon that .clause to protect Zbyszko against any claim that he has been beaten on his trip. Main Pulled Off So Quietly That Few' Know of It Colfax, Wash., Jan. 4.-Colfax sports enjoyed an exciting ccck fight one night recently. Tins main was pulled off so quietly that none outside the favored few who had been taken into the game and sworn to secrecy knew of it. until after it was over. The fight was between birds owned in Colfax and birds owned by a Spokane fancier. A number of Spokane fans ante down to Colfax to back the Spokane birds. The match was for a series of six fights, but the Colfax birds whipped the first five put up by the Spokane man so severely that he refused to allow the sixth fight to go on. No one will admit being at the fight, nor can the -names of th= owners of the birds be learned, but it is certain that five cock fights were pulled off and all five were won by Colfax birds. 4" + 4* + The swing or method of delivering the stone is a point that requires attention. A player should give the arm a fine, loose sweep, the stone at the same time descending a semi-circle in the air. If this is done the stone wi� take the ice smoothly and not with a bang. As the stone descends the left knee should he bent wrhile the body should receive a forward motion and the arm should follow the stone cs far as possible. If this hint is carried out the stone gets a sort of a swift push on the ice instead of being flung against it. Sometimes a heavy stcuc descends too rapidly at the moment of delivery and the impetus is likely to cany the player off his feet. Should this happen the player should quickly stick his left foot out in front and it will keep him from losing his balance. In their efforts to make effective shots players are often seen to fall on all fours in delivering the stone. It is a practice that should be avoided, as it is not only clumsy but dangerous, and altogether an unsightly feature of a very clean sport, ' VANCOUVER LEADS THE WEST Of SI LEAGUE Vancouver, B.

(1.-The Telegram this afternoon auks: "Were the pro-hockey games on Saturday on the level?" Nino out of ten hockey fang In Toronto are asking'that question. '"There is no answer. Those who played them are the only ones whe could explain the whole thing, and, being interested parties, (here is Uu!c likelihood of their giving out any startling information." And it must be admitted that the triple win of Toronto over Wanderers, of Tocunisehs over Quebec, and Ottawa over Onnadiens does look rather fishy. One paper says it look worse than that. True, there have been reversals of form on the level before. The main trouble lies in the fact fliat the public finds its swallowing capacity pretty well choked by three such complete reversals, all on one night.
