Not many changes aroi noted; although two of these will doubtless do much to insure cleaner play. The first rule that shows an Improvement over previous years has to do with guarding at the basket. Heretofore it has frequently happened that a forward is robbed of almost a certain basket by her check who over-guards or bodies her as she is about to shoot. The rule has been to award a free throw to the forward who was fouled, but even if this point were made, It did not compensate for the two points that might have resulted from the field basket. According to the now rules, TWO free throws will be awarded the player who is fouled ttl the basket. Five Fouls, Then Exit Another improved rule deals with the number of fouls that may be chalked up against the various players. In the old rules a player had to make four fouls of a particular kind before she could be banished from the game. It was thus possible for a player to have a dozen or more fouls called against her and still remain on the floor; so long us no four of these were *or ti\e SAME cause. Under the new ruling, however, five fouls of any kind will disqualify'a'player. Another change makes it possible for a girl to toss the hall in tho air and catch it herself to avoid the penalty for holding the ball more than three seconds. Heretofore, when the ball was tossed into the air by a player, she could not catch it again Until it had first been played by some other player, except when sho was shooting for a basket. New Rules for Centres A fourth change in the rules makes it compulsory for both players to actually jump for the ^'uall on a toss-up. It has frequently happened that a short player, realizing that she had no chance to get the ball in a toss-up, would not try to jump but would hack ,away at the toss in tho hope of catching" the ball after it had been batted by her opponent. The last change de11s wil.h the awarding of the ball after a call of time. If a player holds the ball when time is called for any season, the ball is returned to this player by the refereo when the game is resumed. Heretofore the ball has been tossed between this player and her oppencnt. The revision committee urge upon all girls' teams to play under'the new rules without variation, in order that they may bo' given a thorough try-out. 1  _ _ Now, when You Buy x Mitchell The repairs do cost you more here than they do at the factory, but you will need them so seldom that even at that they are cheaper than the repairs for-other cars, AND BESIDES you get 31 extra features with the car. ou Motor i Parlo Post-mortems on the Ross-Harrison mill were the order of tho day yesterday, and. the fans fought it all out again a dozen t.'mes as they gathered in little knots on the strrtols, hotel corridors and barber shops. "What was the reason Ross lost?" Th/U was the question everybody was asking. There wasn't, a sintrlo dissentm^ voice as to Jud Foley's decision. '.Ovn Ross' most intimate friends wore of Uk- opinion that Jud could have given no othnr decision, so the fans had to look for some other reason. "He v.'3a up against a better fighter." **Kosk wasn't in condition. He had no ncc to get in condition, having no sparring partner who c;iu nmki' him mill. Ami ho had )m:m winning so otuuly previously tlir.t hr hud con:':1 In believe he rt,uhl p-et by without, much Iraiu- 1 These wer (lie two opinions mo.-i offf-n exp:-:f-d. and porhaps t he h'-rcr was'fno most. i;viic?rally aecepred by the fans. They reaT/ed thai Harrison is one dl tin) !>�':-1. in (lie game, and wen-mighty triad of the chance of seeing him in action, but they have no; koiio bad; on the Jo. ul favorite of mnviv fi.-t ic eni'ouutcru hv a long shot. They po'!.[ to tho fact that iiarrh:o:i. locirod as he is in Chicago where there are plenty of sc-rapners. can ge:. a good stiff workout any day under the best of conditions, thus keeping improving continually. I3ut Ross' workouts are more or lcs3 jfdees. He dare not let himself out or the sparring partners who arc available would quit the game. The result is that the local man's footwork was not up to the mark, nor was his judgment in aiming and timing his blows. It tak*�s practice to keep up efficiency in these two important departments of the fight game, and it was here that Harrison established his superiority. It is up to Ross himself to remedy these defects into wh eh he has fallen by reison of being so far from the big boxing centres. That Ross fought a, pretty defensive fight after he found he was-up against, a real scrapper is generally conceded, and the fans as a rule do not admit that he was ontgamcd. Whether he could ever beat. Harrison even if he was in the best of shape is a moot question, but most of the fans believe he. could do a lot better than he did ou Wednesday night. And that is tho reason the fans will continue to go to see Ross fight if ho will show by his training that ho is doing his best to get to the top of his form. They like him and they want to see him go against another good one to give him a chance to prove he is the fighter they think him. Harrison is returning to Chicago via the Pacific Coast where it is said the fight game is going strong. The Ohicagoan declares Lethbrldge is tho centre of a district containing a mighty fine and enthusiastic bunch of ring fans. "Kid" Maxwell is going with him, and says it will be no trouble in finding good men in the middle-west to come to Lethbridge to fight Ross or anybody else. Clonie Tait is after a match hi Lethbridge again. If terms can bo arranged for a match between Tait and lngalls, the coast lightweight, the fans will be treated to a championship bout of the first water. i * fo dti all he i onld bnih! th'1 gym-J naK.'urn, ami r-itid \v�> should, noi nm idcv.-fi oDtor place-- of niuu-iftnent.

Bowling matches of five flames each have been arranged as follows, to start tomorrow night on the Dominion alleys here; Evan* vs. Stark, 'Shover vs. Moore, Dickson and Sloane vs. McDaniels and Kulpas. The games will be bowled alternately here and at Barons. WILLARD IN SHAPE CHALLENGE ANY OTHER TWO BOWLEGS IN CITY Sloan and Dickson are out with a chip on their shoulders. They challenge any two bowlers in the city for a match of five games or" ten-pins.

Any two bowlers who think thoy can take these two bowlers into camp, kindly notify the alley management and arrangements will be made for the match. A meeting of bowlers will likely soon be called to form a league. and Mrs. 0. A. Wool lev* Mr. and Mrs. i\ Toomer and Mr. and Mrs. Jos. u-M'i lull v "of v.v.a' Imd bf on. phnnmd. ; Alston.
