Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 17, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRID G-E- B AILY HEB A XD Friday, January 17, 1913 I Prominent In Eastern Hockoy j *--.-----1-* AF OF M CUBS In Spite of Absence of Chance and Tinker and Brown on Chicago Line-Up Chicago, Jan. 16.-John (Aluggsy) McGraw, scrappy leader of the champion New York Giants, who is doing a vaudeville turn at a local theatre here, declared yesterday that he expected the Chicago Cubs to give him another hard tight for the National leaeue pennant next season. This was rather surprising, and "Muggsy" followed it by saying he believed the Cubs would have a stronger team than they had last year. J This should be cheering news io I President Murphy, Manager Evers, and the west side ians, who had been iorced to listen to such distressing predictions on the future oi the Cubs since the disposal of Frank Chance,;  Tor Tinker, and Mordecai Brown. If McGraw sought publicity and the ! good will of the local fans by the statement, he kept it well concealed. He said it as if he really meant it. even if it didn't agree with the prediction oi Louis Mann, who claims dis- -, tmetion as a baseball expert, and, judged the Cubs might finish as good I as fifth. "Muggsy" had difficulty in,1 expressing his opinion of the Cubs because it took- Louis so long to sa -nil he hatf" to say about the national game. COCKING WAIN AT KENOSHA LIE SI 10 BE READY FOR THE AXE Great and Popular Ball Player of Cleveland Team May be Transferred-Never Lucky Enough to be on Winning Team Chicago and Milwaukee Fanciers Wager Heavily on Fights Staged in Barn of Roadhouse Milwaukee, Wis., Jan. 16.-Thousands of dollars changed bands, it was learned today, over the results of a lively cbtking main at Kenosha,^ late Saturday night between Chicago" ana Milwaukee bird fanciers, who favored their home birds. It is said that more than two hundred men xrowded into a barn at the rear or a roadhouse, where the series of battles were witnessed. As the main 'proceeded the excitement grew more intense, and the bets WTe raisd. The final bout was the 'best, and one Chicago man is said to have been enriched to the extent of $2,000. On� of the' most popular Chicago birds, a big black' battler, was called "Jack Johnson" by its owner, and it put up a valiant battle against a Wisconsin bird, but after twenty minutes of fighting, gave up. The many strangers in Kenosha gave ag An excuse that they were visiting "friends." . New YoTk, Jan. The assertion that this ago of baseball is one of speed goes unchallenged. We had irrefutable evidence of it a very short time ago when PItt3burg cut .loose from Mike Donlin. Now comes a rumbling from the Middle West that Cleveland is to sacrifice a great king, Larry Lajoie. Next thing we know of the Hans Wagners and Sain Craw-fords will be getting the hook because they fall off a pace or two in sprinting form. Fred ClaTke was evidently justified in sending Donlin to Philadelphia, even though Mike hit avfay above .300 in 1912. Mike its slow and decrepid, too, in a way. But for Cleveland to pass up the great Lajoie sounds too foolish to attract attention. Why, that young fellow Lajoie is just beginning to find himself in the big tent. And do you think for a minute that ,the Cleveland club does not recognize this? Do you think the Cleveland club would dar� to sell such a favorite, even if it wished to do so? Do you think Lajoie would consent to be bartered like a "bush leaguer" after 17 years iii the big ring? These are a few questions that furnish food for sound reflection. LaTry Lajoie has slowed up, undoubtedly, during the past 17 years, but h� is far from being any sort of derelict. Last year he played 117 games and hit for the remarkable average of .368. Under these circumstances, having enjoyed one of the very best sfaeons of his brilliant career, it is very unlikely that' Cleveland would consent to part with Lajoie at any price. He has become a Forest City institution.' , Never With Champions Many of Lajble's friends would like to see him transferred to some other club^ especially one which has some chance for the pennant. For the big Frenchman has never yet figured on s Winning team or shared any of the spoils of a world's series. Wagner, Crawford, Cobb, Donlin and all this wonderful veteran's contemporaries of the old and modern schools nave had their share of the big glery and big gravy. Several times Larry has come close; most notably in 1908 when he managed fhe Blues. That year Cleveland, Detroit and the White Sox fought such a finish that the pen-naut was not decided until the very day. The sad part of the affair from a Cleveland standpoint was that Lajoie that year, when his services were so badiy needed, had the worst sc-nscn of his big league career. Larry played In every game, but he only batted .2S9 and fielded far below his usual standard. Only one other time in his life did the big Frenchman fail to rap .300 or better, in 1907 he fell shy of the- coveted notch by only one point. Lajoie broke into fast company when he was 21 years of age. He had fairly broken up the New Eugland league as a member of the Fall River team when the Phillies netted him. He played ilve seasons for the Quakers; hitting as high as .379 and never lower than .328. In 1901, during the war between the major leagues, Lajoie with a bunch of his team mates, jumped to the rival Athletics. That was the best season of his career, for in 131 games, he banged a'jjay at a .422 clip. The Phillies in the meantime went to. the courts and secured an injunction to prevent the "deserters" appearing with the Athletics. It was finally decided by the courts that Lajoie and his pals "had no right to play in Pennsylvania with any otheT club than the Phillies. For this reason Lajoie was- sent to Cleveland, the Naps assuming his war-time contract. Each Got an Auto Lajoie has been' in Cleveland" for the past 11 years. He managed the team for five years, throwing up the job in 1909 after a pennant possibility took a bad cropper. Immediately he resigned Lajoie's own game improved. The past three seasons he appears to :be as fit as ever. * * * * * * > ? * Mccarty and wells ?

McCARTY COULD BEAT PALZER AT ANY KIND OF FIGHTING .. Everyone who^.saw the contest between the two big hopes, Pal-zer and McCaTtjy thought there would never befany occasion to send the men' together again. It was the general; opinion that McCarty had proved himself Palzer's superior at every point "of the game. :, .  Palzeiy'it appeared, thinlfs he should be giveri another chance, He does not claim that he was hot at his -best 'in' the matter of condition, although there is reason for believing that bilious attacks and a throat affection kept him from training as thoroughly; as he mitrht have done. Palzer thinks he could have done better if allowed to fight his own way. He says that O'Rourke caused him to change his style, thinking betk'r results would follow if he jabbed and countered iu the manner tlfat; McCarty does. "They had me -trying-;- a new style of boxing in the last days of my .training and it was too late to teaqb me new tripks.'VJ^ber is quoted as saying. "I would like another chgnce at McCarty, but thqy must.' let me tear- -into him in my own style." ' Whether this - kind of a^plea" will get Al a return match remains to be ieeri, Just at present the feeling is that McCarty can lick palzer no matter what style the latter adopts. --W. W. Naughton," New York, Jan. 13.-There has been of' late considerable discussion, both here and abroad, over the correct position to assume in the water when swimming the crawl, whether flat on the surface or with shoulders higher than the feet; also as to the advantage or disadvantage of rolling from the propelling movements;. These matters are now becoming all important, because the universal acceptance of the fundamental principles governing the stroke makes it necessary for the swimmer to seek advancement through perfecting the details, at-least until new basic theories are .evolved and proved. ; ' In arguing the question of pogitloq experts have . corifpIetSly 'dverlbolftfa one of the factors which may have helped to., make- >t,he -cra.wl: the moat successful of strokes-its tendency to reduce hydroplaning when moving at great speed. Through the Leas The fast, continuous thrash of the legs, used so extensively in this country by sprinters, allows the body to retain its momentum after it is once under way and 'obviates entirely any pause or check, so that a slight slant will cause the swimmer to plane upward, minimize the resistance of the water, and draw more effectiveness from the propelling movements. Of course, as the distance .he covers increases and one' has to slow- down, the action :6f arms "and legs, ln:order not to.become exhausted, the propelling force/grows less, and-the same angle Is-neither advisable' nor possible.- . �',;.- . .-.:-, It may-have been noticed by close observers that the bast swimmers adjust themselves-probabljy. without thought to the principle involved-to the correct position, the fast sprinters holding their shoulders well over the water, th9 half-milers and milcrs sensibly lower. To Illustrate-, Dune Kabjinamaku, tho world's hundred met?e record holder, swims so high that'he can glance oyer his shoulders at his opponents in a race without lifting his head, while George Hodg.-son, the 1,500. metre Olympic "champion, lies almost flat. There 1b no doubt that a lateral swing of the body facilitates the above water recovery of the ,arms, permits a longer reach without, strain, and makes easier the Intake of air, thus reducing, the muscular effort, giving more power to'theidrlvei simplifying the' a�t of breathing and creating endurance. Evidently, then, It Is t- be recommended for instance swindling. Single instances are hot always conclusive, hut there is'slsjnlflcauce In tbe fact that the late Barney Kterah of Australia, several of whose longer records have never beeu equalled, rolled so heavjly that he was able to breathe on both sides. , On.;the other band, a''marked roll uses'up time; so that in sprinting, where rapidity of movement is more imppkant than saving of energy, it would seem more practical to keep the body on a fajrly even keel. So' many ; factors ;n.ave to be dealt with, in studying swimming and the cbstr^cteristtcB of tlje individual play such} a leading role, that one finds it hard- to formulate voBltive jules. Nevertheless, everything c.t present points to the expediency of holding the body steady and>a'sll�ht angle for sprinting, and gradually falling to moreihorizontai position and emphasizing more and more the roll as the course before one-is lengthened.

Willie Ritchie. Joe. Rivers and Joe Mandot were in the, city at one. and the same time. If Wolgust had delayed his departure for a day or two he could have fraternized with his three distinguished rivals. Wolgast .has boxed Ritchie, Mandot and Rivers. .Mandot has boxed Rivers, Wolgast, tod Ritchie. . " ' . Rivers has bbxed Mandot and Wolgast. Ritchie has boxed Wolgast and Man-dot. ' And the end is not yet. At present Wolgast is. aching to get another crack at Ritchie, who holds the championship. Rivers would like a trip over the championship short line. He would like to overlook Mandot and Wolgast and _sign up with Ritchie. Mandot, too, would prefer Ritchie to all others, but has sense enough to recognize that the public flxpects hlrn tp finish out the rubber with Rivers before flying at higher game; - Ritchie, for the time being, is thrilled with the prospect of becoming a �foot-light favorite and raking in some of the easy money that awaits all newly ;made champions.
