Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 25, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta  FRIDAY, J>CNU>fRY 25, 19I� tUe lrthbridge daily herald PAGE THRRB ..... > .....iil^V 'BRINGING UP FATHER" By G. McManus BALL ONIGHT Everybodx^ ihould be on deck tonight for one of the biggest sporting events of the season when the Raymond basketballers invade our fair �ity to play the "Y" quintet. Raymond are primed for the ^occasion as neyer before and are coming up here with no other intention but to tuck the locals' scalps under their belts. Equally determined however, are the "y hoop-loeaters. There will be two games, the first between the ".Y" second team and the Raymond second team. As much rivalry exists be-tviteen th'tae two teams as there is between the senior , teams, and last year Raymond had the best of the argument losing to the locals only one gante out of four and that by one point. The VY" second team, however, has been reinforc-d both by new men and a little more experience, and are going in to win. The second game between' the, first team* needt^ no further recommendations and any one can be assured �f getting their money's worth by seeing. The Ray-mend people and players will be shown a good time at. a .dance in the 8.O.E. hall Just after the game. In spite of the fact that "Huck" Sliover took three out of five here and repeated the trick at Barons. Bill Moore, the Mliliouaire trundler, beat blm on total pins on the rohnd.

ALTA. iRBQ Wil > learn Talt "won by :i shade" last Friday ev enlng at Buffalo against Kocky Kansas, or whether Kansas made a light lunch oft the Canadian lightweight champion. The Hamilton Herald took a great interest in the clash, Tait having fought in that town in December and so they had a special reporter B. J., McKililam. at the ringside. Hei'o is what he said of the fight: Tait and Kansas were in the ring shortly after 10 o'clock, the weights (ringside) being announced as,Tait iai�, Kansas 133%, In Tuit's. corner were Jack Lawrence, Terry Gregory, Jack Martin and Young Mendo (Young Mendo spent a few montlis at Blair more about a year ago), while Kansas was looked after by Dan Rogers, Billy JesscI and Tony Rogers. Dick Nugent was referee and Frank IClepfel, timekeeper. Well, Kansas won. and with a good hit to spare, but the'tact remains that 19-yoar-oId Clonie I'ait was still in the ring, and fit and ready to remain there until further notice, at the end of ton rounds with one ot the touglitest^and hardest Pittsburg boys in the business. We heard It stated in certain quar ters that Tait was leg-weary at the close ot certain rounds. All we can say Is that we were seated within a few feet of Tait's corner during the entire bout, and not once did we notice any signs of It. At the finish he was quite as strong on his logs as Kansas. It was his work at^close quarters; tb�t; gave the fight to Rocky. In .this department he had- the Canadian'* liadly at sea from start to finish, Tait ftiid ing it impossible to develop � defence. At close range if Rocky does not eon nect with his right entirely to his satisfaction he whips it backward � like lightning, with jarring effect. He shifts quickly from the body to the head in the clinches, frequently getting outside Tait's arm to the face. Of course the proper thing for Talt 'to have done was to stop Rocky as.h'e came in with bis left, but you can take it l^rom us it will require a mlglit^ hefty left hand to keep that boy from boring in wheh he wants to. and when he gets theroi let the best "of theni; look out.  . � Tait's best rounds were thti second and fifth. In the .former he'sent both hands to Kansas' head earljr in the round, shaking the latter lip' considerably, and followed with anothei right which also did damage. , v In the fifth Clonie got his left hand gohig in his best style, apd also did better at close quarters. ' , . Rounds 2 and 5 to Tait, with the first;; and seventh fairly even and.the rest to Kansas was how we figured Jt. Clonie Itas made many fvlends in Buffalo and should not lose any by, last night's showing.' Although Un-doubtedlydefeatod It is equally certain that there are very few boys ot his years, and experience In good company, who could have equalled his last flight's performance. ~ Talt remarked to the writer in his room at the Iroquois: "I us^^ to rea of Irish independence, havts been barred from tlie nlails, it was learned from (he edr Itors of thOHO papers today. TO HOLY f ATflER of tho enemy, that tho royal govern-mont has examined into the possibility ot contributing in the measures de-ponding upon it toward tho realization of the doublo desire which inspires tho pontificlal raossago: To hasten tho end of tlis present war and render a return ot similar catastrophes impossible by tho adoption of guarantees destined to assure tho supremacy of right over forco. At the beginning ot September the royal government' Ipformed his holl-ihoss that it must reserve decision regarding its action on the propositions contained in tho message until tho powers at war with Belgium had clearly made known their war aims. It added in aoy case Belgium would make no expression of peace terms and the organization of international relations excepting in full accord with tho powers guaranteeing its Independence, that have done honor to their obligations toward her and whoso arms fight with hers for tho cause of right. "Nothing has modified the situation that existed at tho moment the royal government made known tljat point of view to his holiness. However, Belgium seizes eagerly tho occasion furnished it by his holiness to repeat before the civilized world what It wrote nearly y. assistant Bunerlntendont; C.
