Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 23, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta I__ THE LETHBKIPCtE PAXLV HEKAI�D Thursday, January 23, Ufl'S] McCARTY TO ENTER N. Y. IN OLD WILD WEST STYLE Will Ride Bucking, Broncho and Shoot Up the Town With j Blank Gartriges-Bill McNaughtor Advocates Claims i / of Luther's Rival, Jess Willard J IProminent In Eastern Hockey ] FAST AND FURIOUS BASKETBALL GAME DORMITORIES DEFEATED THE EAGLES AT THE V. M. C. A. LAST NIGHT-FARMERS DEFAULTED . '' ', (By W. W. Naughton) San Francisco, Jan.; 22.^-^Poor Luther McGarty. After developing from the. nebula of the white hope horizon and taking oik the distinct shape of a champion, ' lie is destined to find that there are ' thorns as well as theatrical contracts in-the pathway of a newly-crowned king of the ring. Luther is about to start on "what might he .termed a triumphal tour of th� fbotlight belt. In order that his entry into New York may be both picturesque and imposing, Manager Billy McCarney has conceived the idea of having Luther array himself in cowboy costume and of having Luther ride** bucking brOncho the length of Broadway, shooting up the town with blank cartridges a& he prances along. It is not an absolutely original scheme, for the late lamented Stanley Ketchel once signalized his return to San Francisco by driving a six-horse tally-ho up MaTket street from' the ferries. ! But thafs neither here nor there. The danger confronting Luther is j that Jess Willard, who is also a cowboy, inay bJbo become possessed with the Wild West spirit about the time that McCarty is electrifying New York. Wouldn't it be a sight to he remembered to see Jess costumed and mounted in the same style as McCarty come galloping along whirling a lariat over his head? What a furore there would be if he should challenge Luther to a test of skill in any of the feats, that ring riders excel in. Such a thing may never happen, of course, hut it stands to reason that Willard'will adopt some means of resenting the slight placed upon him by Manager McCarney. For McCaroey, in response to Willard'a request for a match with McCarty has told Jess to go and get a reputation. - In the ordinary course of things it is eminently proper for a fighter who has proved his worth to tell a pestering challenger of unknown calibre to go and accomplish something, but thia is a horse of another color. Willard, according to the New York sporting writers, had all the better of McCarty in a bout in the big city last August, and if McCarty wera made of the stuff that champions are supposed to he made of, he would evince a desire to wipe out-the indignity mentioned instead of displaying an inclination to avoid Willard. It;was poor tact on McCarty's part to resort to evasion of that particular description. If he had told Willard t6 exercise patience that his turn would -come after a waile it would have been much better. It is known of course that1 McGarty has his mind set on a July 4t.h match with Bombardier Wells, the representative British lightweight, and for that matter, being an affair of international significance, the Wells-Mc-Carty prospect will appeal to the sporting men of both sides of the Atlantic 'But Willard, smarting under Me-1 Carney's ill-advised slur, will claim that McCarty has not fully established his right to stand forth as America's premier heavyweight, and Wil-lard's friends will take up the cry. It is a claim, too, that cannot be ridden "'over roughshod. The English sporting papers are a unit in admitting that Bombardier Wells is the champion.. of Great Britain in the pugilistic line and there should be unanimity in this country as to the qualiflcatkms of the heavyweight who is to represent us. Supposing a bout between McCarty and Wells were arranged and that the critics accepted it as a world's chanipionshlp struggle, even, while harboring a suspicion that Willard was a better man than either Luther or the Bombardier, And then supposing Wells won. Don't you think he'd break all records getting back to: London with the title, and that the way the New York Yacht club is sitting on the lid of the chest containing the America's Cup would be a mild form of protection to the plans that would be formulated for keeping the world's championship behind the white cliffs of Dover? Sure as you're born. Now there is only one fair, sportsmanlike way of mapping out the whole.heavyweight program. In order to qualify for a bona fide championship match either Wells or McCarty should flrBt give battle to Jess Willard. If the promoters would prefer to use McCarty and Wells on account of the international flavor of the struggle, let it he distinctly understood that the affair is merely the semifinal in the championship struggle. Then WHlard's right in the connection -will be safeguarded. The writer holds no brief for Willed, hut after scanning the various reports of the contest between Jess-and.Luther in New York iast August, Lam fully persuaded that Willard should not be asked to stand aside for McCarty or any one else. ~ JACK MARSHALL Noted Coach of Toronto Professional Team TECUMSEHS WON AN EXCITING EXHIBITION DEFEATED OTTAWA 4 TO 3-LESEUR SAVED HIS TEAM MANY GOALS GUNBOAT SMITH MADE EASY MARK OF McCLUSKY Had To Stop Heavyweight Fight at Oakland Oakland, Cftl., Jan. 23.-''Gunboat" Smith defeated Al McCluskey, of New -York, laat night in a heavyweight bat tie that had been scheduled to go ten rounds.

The game was a tie to. the tenth end, after which;Rea secured two one ends. Large num-hers"'of- curlers watched the contest.

BLOOMER GIRLS IN THE HOCKEY GAME Hockey in Boston may now he said to have established itself, and before the. season is out, it will be as much a feature of the Hub a* the bean-pot or the Common. The opinion does not rest on the fact that the rink there can .produce artificial ice, or the boys of the athletic association can, once in a while, trim the sons ofvMcGill. These cold facts are not the basis of the assertion, but the following announcement made in Boston the 'other day. It reads thus: "A novelty in ibe hockey in'Boston wftl be a girls' team formed by a number'of girls wbo'have been prominent in ice skating races for the past two years. It will be known as the Bloomer Girls' hockey team, and will soon play against a girls' team, from Canada at the Boston arena. All the girls are enthusiastic and have taken up; the practice with great zeal," The "girls' team from Canada" is...'certainly new; but the news about home often' comes from abroad. Ottawa, Jan. 22.-Tecumsehs defeated Ottawa, 4 to S, after an exciting overtime game at the Laurler avenue rink this evening. The match was the best played here this season, as the ice was hard, and the weather cold, but the visitors outplayed the Senators throughout and would have won by a much larger score had it not been for the wonderful work of Les-eur in the nets. Leseur was to have been1 changed, hut the Ottawas changed their mind, and it was fortunate that they did,. otherwise Tecumseh would have snowed them under. .
