IluaviiiKs! how angry these youths ;.vo. And all because The Journal, on beluill" of the Kdmonton A13-t-:tr:rs hasketball team, claimed ihe AJberta championslilp. This !;ro:'.t fireside paper announced in a casual manner, after the locals nlmmed Calgary, Lethbridge and ('aymoncl in decisive fashion, that i-.'flnionton could justly lay claim to provincial honors. Then arose iho concerted wail. "The games \u-re merely exhibition affairs." K.iys one callow youth, who evi-donily hurries back from delivering a route to write "sport." However, the fact remains that an i.dmonion team trimmed tlio cream of the southern quartettes o;: ]J;eir own gymnasiusm floors, i:^ entitled to all the kudos . :u bunzais that go with this feat. Lit-m- in the season there will ::tvbahly he a second championship .series, and the Edmonton .i .no will be delighted to give the ili.^runicd Southerners another chance to lift the title, which they 1 evidently think is theirs by divine rigfc t. The Lethbridge Herald was the first paper to take up the statement of the Journal that the Capital City five had annexed the provincial championship. The Journal's attempt was too crude to pass lightly toy. Nobody is j detracting from the excellence of the game th e Hd m on tou ians put u p on their tour, tout to claim the provincial championship on the strength of it was camouflage pure and simple. The brand uf basketball put up by the northerners wasn't, one-two-three ^ith the classy article Kaymoml, I9lli-l7 recognized champions, showed last season. The Raymond team that stacked up against the visiting Capitals during holiday week wasu't the regular Raymond team by a long shot.

However if the Edmonton Journal and the Capital city basketballers think they can secure any satisfaction out of claiming the cheese championship in this manner they are welcome to it.

Knocked Out in Second Round Oklahoman No Match For White Hope J(>plin, Mo., Jan. 12.-Fred Fulton of Rochester, Minn, knocked out. Harry (Texas) Tate of Nowata, Okku in the second round of a scheduled 1^-round bout, on Thursday night. Tate-went down twice before receiving a blow to the jaw that put him out. It was apparent from the opening of the bout that Tate was outclassed. Fulton opened with a left jab to Tate's stomach and followed with another to the same place. A hard left, to the face brought blood from Tate's nose and mouth. Tate swung wildly and sent in a hard uppercut that barely missed Fulton, who came back with an overhand swing that sent Tate to the floor. He remained down for the count of nine. Fulton sent in repeated jabs to the face. Tate came back in the second round with vicious swings that Fulton dodged. Fulton again sent in hard punches to Tate's face and, with a right to the jaw, sent Tate down. Tate got up only to he sent to the mat again. Another hard right put the Oklahomaan down and bis manager, Billy McCartney, threw in the sponge. Tate weighed 206 and Fulton 215 pounds. ? ? ? T^eo Cook, who, together with his brother Lloyd Cook, was included in the Edmonton Dominions' lineup when they captured the A\berta championship some y - CL0N1E TI WILL . class mechanic in every respect. | building M by St.1, work on which lu Stir in the Big Eastern City A big boxing program under the auspices of tho Sportsmen's Athletic association will be staged in Toronto on Monday, January M, and the main bout over the ten-round route will be between Clonio Tait, lightweight.champion of Canada, and Young Erne of Buffalo. In a recent bout at Hamilton Tait secured a newspaper decision over Erne, but the margin was slight, and there have been insistent demands for a return bout. It is the opinion of Toronto boxing .officials that Queen City boxing fans will turn out in large numbers to see Erne and Tait. Tait's threat to knock out Kmc the next time they meet has prompted the officials to arrange the second match. Clonie is training faithfully in Toronto, and is reported to be in the best condition of his career. He has become thoroughly acclimatized, and. will have no excuses if he does not make a better showing In his next go. I Must Be Accurate "We have distance, accuracy and time to consider, and. the importance of each of these requisites is coordinate. Perfection in all three alone will spell success. "I take a bomb, place it in my right hand and extend both my right and left hands. Both feet are together when I start the movement and my left hand it used as an index. I point it at the spot I hope to hit, practicing using it to aim with. As I bring my right arm-stiff and extended-upward and backward 1 also move my right ! foot back a few inches-making a ! sort of movable base. From this po^i-) Hon I start the second half of the thro\y. "I bring my right arm upward, and the left naturally goes downward.) When the right arm, still extended and stiff, is upright in line with my body, I release my grip on the bomb. I have, of course, considered distance and accuracy, and to provide for explosion at contact-timing-I throw the bomb so that it. will describe an arc in its flight to consume time.
