Sanborn) To all baseball club owners, officials, managers, editors, scribes, and fans: Here's a suggestion for a belated New Year's resolution-delayed by annual reviews, etc., to wit; Let's resolve to eliminate the dollar Bin from our baseball conversation, writings, and sport pages, as far as possible, for one year "for the good of the game," Before anybody springs that old stuff about the "beam in tfi'ine own eye." I'll say none of us has been entirely blameless in the matter in the past. Money Talk Hurts Game Professional baseball is going to need our help to survive the war if that lasts as long as they say it will. The injection of the dollar sign has done the game more harm than any other one thing I'can think of.�U has introduced a commercial spirit and atmosphere into what ought to be merely a grand old pastime. It has made the popular estimate of a player's ability depend on his salary or his market price in a trade. It has created the false idea that success in Bport is measured by coin scales instead of by pennants. The world's series started it, when the receipts o[ that event began to run into b'.g money. ]t wou'.d be a blessing to the game if those f'gures could now be censored out of at. baseball Tel: 's, without cre:uing suspicion hi the in nds of the benlficiary. Ban oils and BrasB Bands To the credit of the club owners, it must be said they f.re as a rule lea-it to blame -or the intrusion of the. dollar sign. There arc exceptions, but most o' the men officially connected with the sport have'refrained from talking in dollar-, and even 'under pressure have refused pointblank to give out uie monetary details of their business or deais. We have recently had, however, an illustration of the harm that can be done by a bank ^roIJ and a brass band. Both bank rolls and brass bands are mighty good things for baseball, but not in conjunction. The great majority of the dollar signs that have been injected into the game have been the work of scribes, who have had to guess at the figures to a gre.it extent. For instance, Comls-key, to my certain knowledge, never has told exactly what he paid the Athletics for Uie release of IiJddie Collins, nor the exact figures in that star player's contract. Yet the guess which we made at the time has been published eo often it has come to be accepted as authentic. As to Players' Salaries The salaries paid to players seldom are disclosed even to close personal friends of the club owners. The players, if they talk salaries, are prone to add a few ciphers, knowing their words will not be disputed or disproved. So the great majority of the figures having lo do with baseball finances, except during the world's series, are guess work or unauthentic hearsay. Consequently they are of small value. When you stop to think of it, the dollar is a poor standpoint by which to determine the value of a ball player. It is too unstable. The dollar of today Is not worth anywhere nearly as much as the dollar of 10 or 15 years ago. It is a blame sight leas stable than batting or pitching averages, which ibaven't changed perceptibly for twen- 1 ty years. How Big Deals Compare We have recently been reading about a couple of player deals which' surpassed all previous transactions of the kind in stupendousness. The dollar sign was evoked to prove it. But It is doubtful, when you atop to think of it, if the coin said to have been paid for Alexander and KlHifer would buy any more food or other necessities of life today than the frtce alleged to have beon paid for Marty O'Toole would have purchased when that deal was made. The dollar Is getting to'be about the cheapest thing in the world-except human life-and the outlook is that it will continue to buy less and less of the things that really count. So why continue to rate a player's ability by such a standard? Let's speak and write of deed3 instead of dollafe for a spell when discussing baseball and see how it works. Let's change the label of Connie Mack's $100,000 infield" to "world's champion infield"-which it was. Our "All American" Battery Let's all refer to the new Cub battery de luxe as the rtAli American battery" instead of the "$100,000 battery." We know it is the former, but we don't know it is the latter for sure. And, if it Is, somebody may pay $200,-000 of 1918 money without getting half as good a battery for it, the way the dollar is going down and everything else is going up. As high an authority as the president of the United States expressed the wish that baseball be continued, along -with the other sports, when the suggestion was made that American league 'parks would be closed if it would help win the war, It Is up to us who are too old, or too young, or otherwise unable "actively to serve the colors, to do all we can to keep the nation's pastime on as high a plane as possible, so long as it shall serve to improve the morale of civilians and soldiers.

Hen, Jacobs, FIFTH &TREET SOUTH LETHBRIDGE, ALT A. BY RAY PEARSON Judging by the activity being displayed by followers of boxing in N�w York, the Empire state will not long be without legalized sport. There are a number of persons who may be tabbed the good ones of the game who, even before the demise of the Frawley law on Nov. 15, had set the wheels in motion to bring about the return of boxing-. The result of these efforts will be shown at the next session of the state legislature when a new measure is presented. It is said this bill already has been framed, and while it bears resemblance in general construction to the Frawley law there are several modifications. A little more than six years of boxing under the Frawley law gave plenty of opportunity to fiud-out the strong and the weak points of such sport and it is the hope of those who have their hearts rn the mitt game that the weak points that cropped up in the past can be eradicated. Club Bouts Not a Success The effort made to institute "club boxing" after the Frawley law died has not proved successful; In fa^, it nrght more properly be called falWire. It i3 no easy business to Hue up enough uona tiae members to puty off shows wi Jiout losing a lot of money, for the boxers and their managers aren't In the habit of scrapping for "love." ! They demand the coin and won't do business unless they get it, so It's Up to the promoters to come across or close up, and the latter has been done in most cases. The matter of police interference also had to be considered, and some of the "clubs" were haled into court to explain their methods of conducting 3hows. The "clubmen" scored a big victory, when one judge ruled it was O.K. for them to go ahead and stage contests for their members. But even Lhat does not make the sport under the present plan successful. 1 War Booms Ring Game It is surprising how many big men of the country are strongly in favor of boxing, and in view of this it is even more surprising that the sport is curbed in so many states. There is little doubt tha� the war is resulting in a lot of good for the boxing game. At all the army camps boxing is the biggest sport, and most every cantonment has a star boxer for boxing instructor. Benny Leonard, Charley Vhite, Johnny Kalbane, Mike Gibbons, tichie Mitchell, and numerous other ing stars are' spending their time caching the soldiers how to fight with heir mauiies. A Brooklyn newspaper, taking the hip hand to aid in the passage of a ew boxing measure in New York, has sked for and received the views of umerous big men on boxlhg. T. R. Likes the Game Heading the list of indorsers of box-ig are ex-Presidents Koosevelt and 'aft. Ex-President Roosevelt said. I have never been able to sympathize -ith the outcry against prizefighters, lost certainly prizefighting is not half j brutalizing or demoralizing as many jrma of big business,and of the legal .ork carried on in connection with big .udness. I have always regarded loxing as a first class sport, whether irofessional or amateur. I shall Uways maintain that boxing contests hexnsolves make good, healthy sport." Kx-President William Howard Taft 3aid: "I think boxing is a very admirable exercise. I tried it for several years when in college and I thought I had derlvew benefit from it." Even Gov. Whitman, who made the determined and successful fight against the Frawley law, could not deny that boxing was a beneficial sport, for tie so states; "It is very likely that boxing is one of the best exercises to put men in good physical condition." Others governors in favor of boxing are: Walter K. Edge. New Jersey; Marcus Holcomb, Connecticut; James M. Cox, Ohio; Horace F. Graham, Vermont; Frederick P. Gardner, Missouri; Lynn J. Frazier, North Dakota; Emmet D. Boyle, Nevada;. Thomas K. Campbell, Arizona; M. Alexander, Idaho; tirnest Lester. Washington; E. h. Philipp. Wisconsin, and Sidney J. C'atts, Florida. THE HOUSE FLAG Great Rolling Marked Challenge for Doubles Championship (From Our Own Correspondent) v Magrath, Jan. 1^6.- One of the best exhibitions of poultry ever shown in this district was on show at the Poultry Fair held on Thursday and Friday in the Heathershaw building. A number of birds were from out of town, Lethhridge, Taber and other places, but Magrath can be proud of the fine birds owned by men here and who are anxious to possess the best. About 280 entries were made in chickens, over 35 in geese, ducks and turkeys besides the pigeons and rabbits. Following is the list of prize winners: Brahnias, light, sec, 2, hen 1, Neil McKellar, 2, N. McKellar. Cockerel, Tommy Evans and "Four-Six" Hugh-ey Jennings had a couple of light lunches off contending double teams fpr the house flag at the Dominion alleys on Saturday night when they beat Murray and Shover in a groai game by 83 pins and then turned around and picked off Lis com be and Dickson by 121. Bowling against Shover and Murray the champeens won at the expense of Murray for Shover was hitting the breeze in finished style piling up 973 on his five game total, three or the games being over the 200 mark. In the second he rolled 213, which was equalled by Evans In his third. In the fourth KSans hit 'em for 209 and Shover for 2(12. In the second game Evans hung up the alley record for the season when he toppled the timbers to the tune of 1001 for the five games going over the 200 mark in the last four games. In the last game his side-kick also piled up 202. Liscombe and Dickson rolled the high single game for'the night when both got over the 200 mark, their total being 419, In this frame Dickson rolled 214 and Liscombe 205. Liscombe later bowled a 212 game. It is understood Shover and Dickson will take on Evans and Jennings tonight or Tuesday. Saturday night's scores: First Game ; Jennings .
