If we wish 'to achieve greatness in the world of sport, these things must be altered', a sports committee should be appointed to enquire into lie mat- ter, find tie caiise and stamp it out by refusing to recognize those teams who are unable up to the sporting code. and they got the worth of .their money and trouble.

The Lethbridge players were convinced that nothing but good play could win the game and brought the best they could rake up. There was very little dirty play on either side with the exception of twice, when one of the Lethbridge players was put on the place of rest for three minutes, and another time when one of each team decided they could settle matters in dispute to Calgary Fair Results Track was Very Favorable Calgary, July The track was in good condition for the races to-day on the exhibition grounds.
