Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - January 7, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta "BRINGING UP FATHER" y McM anus run enes tPB Wi in ene FANS WILL THE There will bo no morn $4000 jackpots for the winners of the world's scries pennant. In the future each player who* is lucky enough lo cut in- on the big melon isi Iho ftill will have to bo satisfied with a mere pittance of $2500 "or so. The losers will have to get along on an allowance ot something like SlaW) instead of $1000 or $1300 more, i*. will he tough sledding for the hoys who draw down between $5000 and $^*o,000 per annum. It hasn't been all settled yet, but the division of Hie spoils is as good as con- second division. alternative is to spread the dough among the first"seven. At the present (he four-team plan has the inside track. The winner of tiie series will get the lion's share of the spoils. The losers will be next in the profiteering. Then, in order, would come the,teams which finish in second place, then the third and fourth and, if the program should include three more, the others. The place will decide the percentage, which dwindles as it approaches the Lethbridge Bowlers Away Off -and Barons Steps Into Lead in Winter Series MORAN IS NOT WORRYING Pat Moran isn't grieving so much over the loss of Grover Cleveland Alexander as some persons believe. The PbiiHes* shrewd manager 3ms another great right-hand pitcher, lie believes, 1 in Dixie Davis, who was drafted last September from the Louisville American association. Davis was in general demand vintil Moran landed him. He was a sensation in the middle west last summer and piled up more than 20 winning games. Morajj, still ha3 summed, as Ban .Johnson has agreed with Garry Herrmann that a change should be made in the distribution of the world's series coin. Johnson lias originally contended that to the victors belong the spoils, but lie lias been won The scheme a� worked out by Johnson and Herrmann takes in the re-ceipts of all post-season games. These will he pooled, and after the winners and losers in the big series have been awarded their shares the rest will be over by the arguments of the chairman > divided among the three or six teams With definite information that Phil Harrison, the Chicago middleweight,  had left the Windy City for Lethbridge fans perked up their cars on Saturday and fanning bees were the order of the day in every corner. It is far from an exaggeration to say that never In the history of the game in this city h,as such interest been displayed not only in Lethbridge but in every town for miles around, and Wednesday night will bring together the biggest crowd of fight fans the province has seen at one time since Tommy Burns was behind the game in Calgary a few years ago. The followers of the game are satisfied With what they have hoard of Harrison, and they expect him to deliver the goods. Certain it is that Harrison Is not coming to Lethbridge with any idea that he is going up against "easy pickings." The Chicagoan has enough friends here who made it their business to put him right, and the result was that he delayed his departure from Chicago as long a& possible in order that he might do his training with the best boys of his weight he could find there. Ross has been rather handicapped In this regard, but the fans are confident that the local boy will give a good account of himself under any circumstances.^ Harrison Is due to arrive either this afternoon or tonight. If he blows in today he will be seen in action tonight at his quarters which will be over the Alberta Buffet. If he does not arrive till tonight he will work out on Tues day afternoon likely at the same place. At any rate the fans will have a chance to size him up before the match. There are plenty of Ross backers, and Harrison money will not be lacking if he shows up well in his training stunts. ; The match is the biggest event of the kind ever staged here over the ten round route. Fans are scrambling for seats and the ringside will be taxed to capacity. Bow Island to Macleod and\Coutts to Carmangay and Vulcan are all sending big delegations of fans. Half the town of Barons will be here, especially if the roads continue as good as they are at present. The preliminaries for the evening are being arranged, and will if possible bring out Andy Russell of Calgary and a good Vulcan lad in a six round go as a semi-windup. It is thought both boys are available for the occasion. The fans have net forgotten �he one round'mill in which Ross disposed of Al Moore of Montana in two minutes. They are hoping Harrison is in condition to exhibit some of the speedand science he has learned from Packey McFarland. If he does there Is going to be a merry time on Wednesday night. of the national commission, so sad news is likely to be spilled during the holidays. Johnson and Herrmann were appointed a committee at the joint meeting of the National and American leagues here to draw up a new eo/de for the post-season games' receipts. .The two have absolute authority to go as I on a sliding scale. One plan provides for a distribution of approximately $100 for each player of the last team to share. The argument in favor of the plan is that f>very team will try its hardest to get up as far as possible in the race in order to get as large a percentage of the money as possible. Should the �">�..

Should the seven-club plan go thrgugh there would be There are two plans up for consid- a scramble to keep out of last place. eration. Both are fathered by Herr mann. One is t'o divide the total receipts of tht^ world's series among the first four teamsMn each league. The This, however, would militate against the managers trying out new material in the fall, as has been the custom in the past. Barons timber topplers took Leth-brldge.trundlers into camp in finished style on .Saturday night by to 2346, a lead of 101! pins. It wasn't the sensational rolling of the visitors that idid it. It was the very rotten trundling of the local quintet. LeA bridge beat Barons by an pins in the first (game* but tiie locals fell down hard in the second, being high score to Shaver's credit. In the third game Bill Moore rolled 21Tt, and Barons won by 67 pins. Moore and Flood were the only two men to go over the top for 500 or better during the evening, each annexing one double century score. Shaver and E vans came near the 5 0 0 m a r k couldn't nuito make it.

YAMAOA SEEKS NEW PUTTER STAFF NORMAN BROOKES WAS RIGHT News comes from across the seas that Norman E. Brookes, former world's champion tennis player, had a close, call recently, being a passenger on the Mongolia, which was torpedoed on its way to Egypt. The day war was declared in 1.014 the international tennis tournament was in progress between Anthony Wilding and Brookes, tiie Australian challengers, and Kreutzcr and Frots-heim, the Germ air experts, at Sewick-loy, near Pittsburg. Wilding and Brookes outclassed their rivuls, winning all three matches easily. When the final point, had been scored and the Toulon players, both of whom were officers in the- German army, congratulated their conquerors, Wilding merely gave I hem a look and hustled to his quarters. "I am afraid the next time we clash," said Lieutenant Otto Kreutze.r, "we will have swords instead of rackets in our hands." "Yon fellows have to many before you .can T Giants* Pilot Admits He Has Best Lineup of Pitchers in Game John "Joy" McGraw isn't making any boasts since ,his Giants lost the world's series to the White Sox. but he modestly admitted a short time ago that he still has the'greatest pitching staff in the National league and that he expects his club to scamper home ahead ot; the field in tho pennant race J again next summer. "Jawn" look occasion also to predict that Benjamin Kauff will top all hitters in the National league next year. Owns Three Star 5ou*paws McGraw is certainly well fixed with if a pitchers in his own league, lie has I get to rejoin army," remarked Brookes. That was little more than three years ago. Wilding became a captain and was killed in the Gallipoli campaign. Brookes, now a lieutenant colonel in the British army, is in Mesopotamia.

Can McGraw keep the moral of his ball club up to a winning standard after the treatment they received in the recent world's series'.' ^ / There aro a good many New York fans and critics who rather expect that the defeat they took at the hands of t'omlskey's Sox will work against the Giants in the coming National league pennant race. They will scarcely "be as confident and chesty as they were this season, and rival teams will not have the same amount of respect for their ability. Won Too Easily The race of 1017 was a cinch for the Giants. They won the pennant all too oasily, where, if they had been forced to make a tooth-and-toe-nail fight for it, as the White Sox were, they undoubtedly would have5shown to better advantage in the big October classic.

The new golf devotee is Koji Yamada, the famous Japanese billiard player, and the department, of the game that he would like to change is this putting business. Yamada complains that he can't tell where the hall is going when he hits it with n golf club. When he hits a billiard hall with a cue he knows exactly where it is going and what it is going to do on route and when it gets there, but it's all a matter of conjecture with the elusive golf pill. Now it could only be arranged so that player shoot the hall in the hole pool fashion. Yamada would he greatly pleased. But it can't be done it seems.

In other j words, it is the haven of refuge for boxing persons and their retinues. Right now boxing is aH the rage in the state which borders on Lake Erie. There are more than half a dozen of the largest cities where professional boxing bouts are being held at regular intervals, and in most cases the bouts are over a distance from 12-round no-decision affairs to 20-round decision contests. The following is a list of places where bouts are now being held and the number of rounds: Columbus-Twelve rounds; no decision.
