FOOTBALL JIM MITCHELL ROLLS UP A PERFECT SCORE And Averages 268 for Three Games During Afternoon-His Third Perfect "kfim Mitchell, the Calgary bowler; was in an: unusually fine bowHtig mood pne day last week, and the result was a perfect score. It was the third perfect score in two seasons, of Alberta's premier bowler, and it was dojjie-so quietly and unassumingly that, only thoBe who happened to be at the'Exchange alleys at the time were aware of the feat. Jim's record score came in the third game of a series between himself and a certain Bellamy. Bellamy dropped into the alleys, looking for someone to beat. Jim Mitchell was th� only one in sight, and he hesitated a minute before taking on the well-known ten-pin expert, and finally a deal was made whereby Jim was to spot the challenger thirty-five pins per game. When the tallies were totaled up at the finish of the first encounter Bellamy had 167 pins and Jim had 229. In the second game the figures read: Mitchell, 245; Bellamy, 190. "This will be on the house,", said Jim, and then the got down ;to. business., He went through the ten: frames with strikes every time, and then ended up the'matter by striking out. Bellamy's score was 198 in'the third game: ? ?

Jan. 24.-Hockey received one of-roe worst black eyes hereto-night that any two teams could pos^ sibly hand out-.when the Capitals and Robin Hoods of Moose Jaw, met. In -the' end the latter won by a score of 2 to 1. The>play started out in record style and 'the. large crowd settled down to see ..a record game. For 15 minutes the play was some of the nicest seen here; this winter, then the trouble began, and the rest bf the exhibition could not be declared . as hockey.. The trouble started over one of the locals striking the judge oi play in tha face with his fist. The official had been continually getting in Warren's way and when he attempted to put the player 6S for running into him, Warren hit and the fight was on. The referee put Warren off for the remainder of the game and the Regina captain put another man on to take hisrplace, but the other team would notj*stand -for it. BLAIRMORJi WON GAME �.

Supporters /Taber, Jan. 24.-In a fast game Tuber defeated Medicine Hat" Iff-the first gome with the Hat in the District league serjes, by 1> to 1. Hard checking prevailed during .both halves several penalties' being handed out. Taber scored two in the first half, ahd the Mad Hatters were blanked, but during the second ..period they found the net for one, while Taber drew three. Medicine Hat proved a great surprise, and their team is undoubtedly the' best that has appeared, on. the ice this yeat against Taber. They "Were accompanied by a special.train.load of supporters. FIGHTERS TO BE ARRESTED Fledmond and Welling Said to Have Violated State Law Milwaukee, Jan. 25.-No more boxing bouts will be allowed in Milwaukee,'according to sv statement by District Attorney Yockey last night after warrants had been issued for the arrest of Jack Redmond and Joe Welling on the charge of participating iu a prize fight here,pn January 13. Yockey's action came after a conference'with several ministers who claimed that the bout 'was not a boxing exhibition, but a "prize fight," and as' such, prohibited under the laws of the state. Jim Corbett's Ring Comment (By James J. Corbett, former Heavyweight Champion of the World.) Written for the Lethbridge Herald -A bill has been introduced in the Massachusetts legislature to legalize boxing exhibitions. and to provide for the appointment of a state' commission to supervise the sport At present boxing is tolerated in the Bay state although under existing laws the holding of such an exhibition constitutes a crime. To overcome the objection's of those misguided individuals who oppose referees' decisions on tho ground that they encourage gambling and are therefore a menace to boxing, a clause in the bill specifies that decisions are not to be made at the ringside. The plan calls for the appointment of "inspectors" who shall attend all contests and make notes of the points scored by the contestants, etc., and who must file these notes with the commission within 24 hours after each bout, the commissioners to later make public the "official" finding.' My stand on the decision question is too well known to call for comment here. I have contended right along that the New York .commissioners made a mistake in ruling that decisions should not be given, and believe that the members of the board will crime to the same conclusion befope very long. However, should the bill now pending in the Massachusetts legislature become law it will be interesting to watch how Keevin's plan will work out.  � � Although Johnny Kilbane, the. featherweight champion, easily outpointed and decidedly outclassed both Johnny Dundee and' Eddie O'Keefe in this city "last fall, he failed to earn the good opinion of local critics. . Those young men were practically unanimous in denouncing him as an imitation of what a title holder should be. Apparently taking their cue from the" "experts," Gotham promoters have sidestepped Kilbane ever since. If the truth were known, however, it would be found that the real reason of his long absence from New York is not due to a lack of appreciation of Johnny's fighting skill, but to a reluctance of the"promoters to "come thrc-.igh" with the amount of money the champion demands . and considers in keeping with his dignity as, and the drawing powers of, a featherweight title holder. Local fight handlers complain of poor patronage, but fail to realize that the falling off in attendance Is their own failure to provide attractive matches. All winter long there has-'been a dearth of good - bouts. Many of the cards offered for the "entertainment of � New York fans 'would shame a "tank town" promoter. * � 9 Leach Cross made ~a number of friends by the game battle, he put up against Joe Rivers last week. There have been times when Leachie was suspected of a desire to "dog" it, but if- such a thought entered his mind during the Rivers mill he managed to get it under control. But Leach had little choice in the style of fighting that prevailed in this bout. Rivers carried the battle to his man all the way and Cross had to fight-to protect himself or deliberately quit. As a flghHng "hot tomale" the ' Mexican more than made good. , In discussing the bout-with Cross, before leaving for Los Angeles, Rivers aald that It was the first short contest he had taken part in for a long tlra* 4jj mrnstaa**!. to 'tiuj-l longer distances, and for that reason did not get going at top speed until the latter rounds. Joe also claimed that a better understanding of the rules governing bouts in this vicinity will enable him to do better work the j next time he starts. Compared v>wlth the manner in which Packey McFarland and Jack Britton have handled Cross in the past, Rivers' work could hardly be | called''impressive, but it is not as an exponent of boxing that this youngster shines. He is more on the Wol-gast type and depends on strength, hitting power, ' aggressiveness' and stamina to carry him.�.. 0.1$ Butter and Eggas '*" Dairy butter .. .. .. ..- .. .. 0.31 Creamery buttet ...... �,...�.�...*.;'." 03i Eggs, fresh .. ......: 04S Sheep: Uve, per cwt. .. �...- .� 60* Dressed, per cwt .. .....

The ex-champion has today wired Tom McCarey, Los' Angeles boxing promoter, and James. Coffroth, of San Francisco, in an endeavor to secu-re a match. The right sort of an offer, It is believed would cause Wolgast to'change his mind about not fighting anything �but ten-round goes until he again secures a return match with Willie Ritchie. Wolgast has announced that the next time he prepares. for a championship fight, Jack King, of Portland, will have charge of his. training quarters.
