Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 7, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta MONDAY, JANUARY 7, 1918 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD ----\-----^-.....-------- PAGE THREE ----------- .....-jag 'BRIN6ING UP FAtHEr By G. McManus PRISON IWW OUT IN PUB FAtIS IIIL GIVE KISHYTOGO With definite Information that Phil Harrison, the Chicago mld-dlewelflht.\had left the Windy City for Lethbrldge fans perked up their cart 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-�f the game In this city/ has such Interest been displayed not only In Lethbridge but In every town for miles around, and Wednesday night will bring ^ �'tdgetWer 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 ilgo. 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 npt coming t� Lethbridge with any Idea that ho 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 as 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 locaj boy wil) give a good account of himself under any circumstances. ^ Harrison'jc due to arrive, either this afterhoonXor tonight. If he blows in�'{o'd9y he will be seen In ction ton(ght at his quarters which will be over the Alberta Buffet. If he does not arrive till tonight he will work out on Tuesday afternoon likely at the same place. Atr any rate the fans will have a chance to size^hlm up before the match. There are plpnty of Rose backers, and Harrison money will not be lacking If he shows up well lii his tra,lnlng stunts. ' ^ 1 The match Is the biggest event ^of the kind ever staged here over  the ten roqnd route. Fans are scraiv;bling for seats and the ringside will be taxed to capacity. Bow Island to l^acleod an(f\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 brlng"'out Andy Russell of Calgary and a good Vulcan'^ lad in a six round go as a seml-wlndup. It is thought both/boys' are available for the occasion. ' � The fans have not forgotten_the one round/mil) In which Ross disposed of Al Moore of Montana In two minutes. They are hoping Harrison Is in condition to exhibit some of the speediand science he has learned from Packey McFarland. If he does there Is going to be a merry time on Wednesday nlghti Days of Juicy WorlcTs Series Win-nines Gone-More Men to Benefit There will bo no more $4000 jackpots alternative Is spread the dough for the winners of tlio world's series among the first seven.

Jolinson and Herrmann were appointed a committee at the joint meeting of the National and American leafjuea liere to draw up a new cofle for the post-season games' receipts. .The two have absolute authority to go as far they like, and yesterday Mr, Johnson announced that ho hoped to have some news to give out in a few days. There are two plans hp for consideration. Both are fathered by Herrmann. One is to divide the total receipts of th\^ \v;orld's series among' the first totir teama^-in each league. The divided among the three or six teams on a sliding scale. One plan ptovldes tor a distribution ^ot approximately $100 for each player of the last team to share. �' The argument In favor of the plan is that wery team will try its hardest to get up as far as possible in the race In order to get as largo a percentage of the money as possible. Shoul'd the four-^team program be adopted every club would naturally try to keep out "of the second divrslo'n. Should the seven-club plan go thrgugh there would be a scramble to keep out of last place. This, however, would militate against the managers trying out new material in the fall, as has been the custom in the past. __^__�> -------- ' s Barons timber topplers took Leth-brldgertrundlers into camp in finished style on .Saturday night by 2448 to 2346, a lead of 102 pins. It wasn't the sensational rolling of the visitors that did it. It was the very rotten trunii-llng of the local quintet. LoAbridge beat 'Baron? by 25 pins in the first gamrf'but the locals fell down hard In the secoiid, 1S8 being high score to Shover's credit. In the third game Bill Moore rolled 2IB, and Barons won by 67 pins. i Moore and Flood were the only two men to go over the top for BOO or,better during thp evening, each annexing one double century score. Bhover and ISvans came near the 500 mark but couldn't fjulto make it. This Is the first time In many moons Barons has plastered^ one on the locals on the Lethbridge alleys and the wheat kings went back home feeling very happy. Barons has beateu Lethbridge two out of three in this year's inter-town co\i-testB.

The Phillies' shrewd manager has another great right-hand pitcher, lie lielievos, in Dixie Davis, who was drafted last September from tho Louisville American association. Davis was in general demand until Moran landed him. He was a sensation in the'middle west last summer and piled up more than 20 winning games.
