Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 18, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta FRroAY, JANUARY 18, 1918 "BRINGING UP FATHER' THE LETHBRlbGE DAILY HERALD PAGE THREE By G. McManus re W MRS. OIT 1 Edmonton Sport Writer Waxes Eloquent Over Fairy Tale About Recent Ross-Harrison Scrap The youth who pushes the qulII on one ot the camoutlBge pages of the Kdmonton Bulletin ran short ot.breeze the other dajr, and out ot a tertUe im-�Cinatlon be manufactured the following, which we will admit Is rather good in spots even it It does ramble round the suburb ot the truth in a tew Important particulars: To the hungry traveler In L>.K" {was a homestead-^ Id the south country until things bsigan to hum in pugilistic circles In Lietbbrldge, and then our hero, who kad previously had some ezperi-mee wlthi the padded mitts, hied blmaelt to the city to pick up some of the floating shekels. And he did. In tact be was a aucceas and cleaned u|> in every bout in which he participated. Kow, like all famous ring and tafseball itars, Ross soucht in a way to commercialize his popularity. Lethbridge being fairly well 'tocked with pool rooms, and sal-loons being out of date in Alberta, ha did the next beat thing and ac-, quired � restaurant, which of course became the hang-out of the "sports" to the discomfiture ot our friends the Oreekt. As long as the popular Idol continued to clean up Important fighters (T), Just so long would busi-vBMS iiuffer in Grecian quarters, so �omathiBg had to be "did." An B.O.8. call was sent to the rwl Windy City for a real scrapper, aiull'aoon "Mr.'Harrison" was on his W*y 'from?J.'Chl" and matched up wlU� 'lYbuiiimoBS.  1 ; ln^tralahiii'bonts the visiting gladi-�tor,i4i4BH':U�iokvso much to the lf^lVtj|ai.uViIii ..fact, "clasa','. .was ra^.'eohiiplGtioUs by Its absence and th'9;"ipbrtB"^were eager to place thalr~bsnl~-wmed coin on the local favorite. Strange to say, there were some mysterious peop)^ who wore only too willing to take alt the ^bete, : - ' Well, the scrap came off and Mr. Rosa was snowed under by the gent from Chicago, who by the way, turns . out to be a Jew ot Greek nationality . who can tigkt. In addition to cleaning up about |BOOO.:re�LQ>pney, the Greeks put a 'crimp Jn the popularity of one /'YoiingV Rosf, restfiurantdur. The'truih of t|ie matter is,that Ross and Hudson Vad not gone into the res-taunint business when Harrison was picked to, meet Ross. Ross was chosen by ^beljicalclub early In December and' tbe' bout, wiu to have come off New' irear'e" Eire.' Ross didn't acquire th� PUsB until a couple of days before New Yoi,ra,' 'A* for Rosa' popularity being on a slump, the Edmonton sport should guess again. Edmonton never saw the time when It could boast a bojcer of Ross' class. That's why the fight game never got anywhere In the capital. Roas. In going up against Harrison, took on a man whom Ed. Smith, the noted Chicago boxing authority and referee, declared to be among the best In the States In the middleweight division,  Ross � knew Smith's opinion ot Harrison two weeks Hockey Game De Luxe Saturday BASKETBALIERS Montanans Were Not in Class With Lethbridge-Score Was 74-20- The Shelby basketball team dltl not live up to expectations last night in their clash with the local husky quintet. They turned out to be mostly writer jHIgh school boys, and for the first time In tholr ll>-es the locals were playing against a lighter team. From the first toss up .the game was uneven with iiethbrldgo forging far ahead and the score at the end ot the half was 43-9, The homesters displayed some combination and shooting which seemed fo bewilder the Yankees. The second half was a repetition of the first and the final gong sounded with the score 74-20. This was the before the bout. So did the fans.! least Interesting game witnessed on Harrison wasn't a dark horse by any �'the "Y" floor for many a game,'but means. The fans who bet on Ross' the Shelby players admitted they were and lost are satisfied that nothing was ; outclassed completely. put over them, Harrison lived up to his advance notices;' Ross put up a game scrap and lost, but that doesn't put blm down and out as a scrapper. He has it In him to give Harrison twice the battle he did here. The bout went 10 rounds of good milling which would have done the heart of the Edmonton sport writer good to have seen. Outside ot the tew little "irregularities" we have pointed out the Edmonton youth's story listens good. Fiverybody on the local team shot well and the individual scores were: Forwards J.

At least that Is true, provided the St. Louis officials permit the mew manager' to arrange his own trades and sales. Hendricks made It plain recently that he is out to build up a winning ball club at St. Louis, not to replenish the treasury temporarily by sale ot star material. Hendricks talked at length regarding the proposed sale of Honrsby to the Cubs. In part he said: "Right now the Cubs need more help to build up a ball club than do the Cardinals. For years I have been keeping close watch on the major league clubs and I think I am fairly competent to judge of the strength of the, various teams. To me It seems it would be easier to build the Cards into a pennant contender than to patch up the Cubs to the same extent. .

Minnesetan Will Go the Route Against Pittsburger, Who Is Tough Customer In Ring. The Frank Moran-Fred Fulton match that fell through last summer is on again and this time it may go through according to schedule. When this pair was matched before Fulton was willing enough to fight, but Moran seemed to think the risk was too great, considering the small purse that was offered at that time. But since Fulton's talk of meeting Wlllard he has become a greater attraction and Promotor Tortorich of New Orleans was able to make the men an otter that neither could afford to pass up. As the battle will ha a 20-round affair one or the other of these men will be completely eliminated from the running In all probability. Wlien Moran met Wlllard two years ago It was clearly proved that he had no chance to boat the champion at that time, but since he was not knocked ing boots and doing other odd Jobs that should either be cut out entirely or placed In the hands ot women. It these men will not go to the front, and will not of their own free will take up work '^hlch would be ot real benefit to the community, such as farming or othtr productive occupations, they should be organised under the Militia Department and assigned to proper occupations, else they should be required to leave the country. A few thousand of these citified foreigners placed on the land and obliged under military law to do their share of cultivation under a fair but not a high rate of wage, would do much toward relieving the present serious situation as It pertains to production. These men are now consumers, but not producers In any sense of the .word, and it would bo far bettor to bo relieved of them entirely than to have them In their present occupations. This. is. a case where the proper authorities should say, "�ilther get out ot the country, or go to work." CHARGED WITH PLOT TO DEFRAUD MERCHANT Have you made your return for tb* 1917 Income Tax act yet? That'� becoming an important question. All single men with an income.of over $1500 and all married men with an income of over $3,000 must make the return by February 28th showing tbeir Inconjes tor the year. They will receive no notice from Ottawa before that date asking for the return. It must be made voluntarily. American* In Quandary American citizens living In Canada are In a quandary as to their status as regards the Income tax laws of Canada and tne "united States. According to a ruling made by the U. S. authorities the other day, American citizens living In Canada will be required to pay Income tax to the feder.. al treasury at Washington. This, however, it is thought, does not preclude them from paying income tax to the federal treasury at Ottawa so they are up against two income taxes. This will affect quite a large number : ot Southern Albertans, farmers especially, who have never taken out their naturalization certificates though they have lived In Canada for a number of years. The expected result will be u rush on the part of these people to wear allegiance to King George. BONUS CLAUSES MAY BE POPULAR Boston, Jan. 18.-A boxing match between "Battling" Levlnsky, Instructor ot boxing dt Camp Devens, and "K. O.

SOLDIERS' TRAIN WRECKED London, Jan. 17.-A German official statement dated at Saarbrueken Rheln-ish Prussia, yesterday reports the wreck of n train bearing soldiers on leave; due to tho; collapse of an embankment near Kirn, causing the death of some passengers and the in-Jury of others. The engine, the'baggage car and two'pas'senger coaches' were overturned, No further details are glyen; ,  � ' - s WANTELIMINAINOF E IN CIVIL SERVICE ---------- , public believes that.Moran has shot his bolt and never again will be considered a dangerous contender. For that reason interest in the coming match will cen-ter in Fulton's performance. If he should happen to'stop the game Pitts-burger Fiilton will be in a position to force Wlllard to tight or quit. On all form Moron shouU be an easy mark for Fulton, but the fact that Moran Is easily the gamest heavy-weight now in the ring, while there is a doubt regarding Fulton's courage, may completely' upset the dope. It Is because Moran has so much courage and determination that he is considered the best man to test Fulton's nerve.
