Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - January 16, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta / + � WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 16, 1918 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD _ PAGE THREE \ / ft DRAFT WON'T HURT THE SOX 4 AMP� TO BE LITTLE CHANGED That the world's champion White Sox will go through next season practically intact was inferred from the report made to congress by General Crowdcr, provost marshal general. General Crowder reported that the policy had been formulated to ex: empt all married men.or others with dependents in the coming military draft. If the order should be applied to the Sox the champions would stand to j lose only two of their regular play-j ers, not counting the recruits. The Cubs, however, arc likely to he hard hit, as out of 41 men 15 are unmarried. The majority of the veterans will come under the married classification, so the blow is. softened considerably./ Two Sox Eligible Among the Sox players who were on the payroll laxi year only First Baseman Jourdan and Urban Faber are eligible for the draft.. All the rest have families. Grover Cleveland Alexander heads the list of unmarried players on the Cub team. Grover, however, claimed oxemptio.n in the first, draft, as he had a mother to support. Here are the Cub players who are eligible to the draft: Pitchers-�Alexander, Albridge* Carter,, Weaver, Bailey and Boehling. Catchers-Elliott, Daly ami O'Far- rell. Infielders-HoUochcr, Kilduff, Pech- ous and Lear. OuCi'iehfSrs-Baker and McCabe. .Should all the above be, found in the net Manager Mitchell'still lyis the nucleus for a strong team left in Pitchers Vaughn. Hendrix and Douglass; Catchers KilJifer and Wilson; Infield-ers Doyle, Merkle, Deal, Zoider, Wort-man anil Leslie and Outfielders Flack, Mann, Wultor and Paskert. Among tho recruits Pitcher Walker might fill in. Exemptions Are Sure Several of the players listed as eligible as far as ago is concerned would undcubtedly be exempted* on the ground of dependents, and. it is almost a certainty that enough would be left to make up the limit of 22 men-all a team may carry during the season. That the White Sox will he better off than most any team in the American league is certain. There is not a single team in the league with such a large percentage of married men. Besides, three of Rowland's champions are past the military age-John Col-lins, Clcotte and Benz. Catcher Jenkins, Pitcher Scott and Payne and Kaiser, recruits, are already iu the army. Naturally, the biggest loss to the Sox would ba tho drafting of Faber, who had considerable to do with winning both the pennant and the world's flag. Ati long as Gandil ia In harness Jourdan cduid ba spared. Up to Russell The drafting of Faber would practically put the Sox out ol the pennant race unless Comiskey could pick up a couple of pitchers cf more than ordinary promise. Of course everything wiH depend on whether Reb Russell will stage a come-back. If the big left-hander should be able to iron out his pitching arm during the winter Rowland would have little to fear even if the brick-topped Iowan should be compelled to spend the season hoisting grenades at Fritz. How "dependents" will be interpreted by the government, is still unknown, but it Is certain that the great majority of Sox and Cub players would qualify. Not more than three of the'" Sox players are known to have a competence which would provide for their families if they were called to the colors and two of these are above the age limit. None of the others have been able great store of wealth, era! have lost small-sized fortunes through unfortunate Investments. None of the Cubs are in the millionaire class and a number of those who are single have dependents, so it is likely that some would be exempted. In comparison with the Giants, picked as the real rivals of the Bruins in the pennant race, Mitchell's team is likely to fare pretty well. McGraw has a numbfer of regulars who are eligible for selection. Cincinnati also is likely to he hard hit in this respect, so thero is little to worry about on the North Side. to lay up although any sev- The Basketball season is now in full sway and there will very likely be anywhere from one to two games a week for a month or so. Shelby, Montana, the first Montana team to ever attempt a Can-�ad:an trip, and who play the locals tomorrow (Thursday) night, can be expected to give a good account of themselves. Raymond, our old rivals are billed for Friday, January 25th. Stirling is expected to ' be heard from anytime. The Calgary team is totally reorganized and with a big bone to jfick with Edmonton about the so-called championship, can be expected to put out the best in Calgary. \ Local bowTlers are takfng a healthy interest in tUe doubles events which are being arranged. Tonight Sloan and Dickson will bowl a series of five games against Irwin and Llscombe. Last night Dickson limbered up for the match with a 241. He had seven straight str.'kes. N The doubles championship of tho alleys will be decided by tho series coming up. WHEN WE TAKE SECOND-HAND CAR THR FIROT THINS WE DO WITH.IT 18 SEND IT TO THE EPAtft SHOP, WHERE IT IS THOROUGH.
