Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 9, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta i>AGE SIX THE LETHBRIDGE DA>^Y HERALD TUESDAY, JULY 9, 1918 BRINGING UP FATHER" By Gi McManus The Sport Page B CAP GOLFERS New York.-If there is anything a %-Indy day lllce this proves ou the ;Jlnka tt Is that in these days ot radical ' dress reform, -with farmerettes, con-�ductorettes and other sorts ot 'ettes' popularizing masculinized attire, some-body ought to suggest knickerbockers ^toT women golfers." Thus spoke Mrs. William Chtlvers, ; one of the best women goiters at the Dunwoodie Country Club and -winner over Mrs. G. K. Jlorrow of the Great Keck In the final of the second eight In tie recent Women's Red Cross tournament at Apawamls. She was day of the tourney along the ridgS go-tng to the fifteenth green. There the . balf-galo nearly blew her off her tance. She was In the mixed Scotch (tonrsomes, the woman In the other Ijair being Mrs. Thomas HucknaH, �winner in the morning of the final of the chief division. "I wonder how much fun the men -would find In golfing," went on Mrs. PHONE 733 FOR THE O.K. REPAIR SHOP Shoes and Small Machinery. 817 Third Ave. SroilACE' ATTERV SERVICE STATION HENRYXDENN Proprietor All Make* of BattM-lea Charfled arid Repaired ' 311 7th Street S. I^hone 616 Chilvers, ''if their clothes blew about like ours. How can a woman concentrate on her shot when her mind Is occupied with thoughts about her skirts, whether they are properly adjusted and all that, for no self-respecting woman wants to look like a fright? "Again, we are told to keep the eye on the ball. How can we do that with our skirts flapping and catching the eye with a sudden blowing out of the dress like a flac? "Let the men try it once and see what they would do if, just as they started to come back, their clothes would balloon out on them. It they'd riot be thrown off their swing, they'd be more than human. "How often on a putting green, one sees a woman compelled to slip a band around her skirt to keep it in place against a boisterous wind. The band can be employed on the greens only because the feet are. close together, but any woman would like to use such a skirt holder on every shot. "But. going into the subject more deeply, how much easier teaching golf to women would be if they wore knickerbockers. One of the hardest things |to get in the drive is the proper bend of the left knee on the ,back sw*lng if you are a right-handed player or Tight knee If left-handed. "Now, your teacher, even though he is a fine professional Instructor like Jack Mackle, can not tell whether the knea is bent right, hidden as It is by the folds of the ekiirt. Perhaps that is the reason so lew women golfers bend the knee correctly. Why, even back in Shakespeare's day, the poet saw the importance of the bent knee leg, for did he not"speak of 'crooking the pregnant hinges ot the knee'? No doubt he Jiad the golf swing In mind, for, you know, golf was played In his time. "We hear a lot these days about reform In clubs-tluted-faced Irons, steel shafts,-etc.-and an improved ball is put ou the market every few months. Suppose they try a little reformative zeal on the women goffers' clothes." 6ASEBAL RESULTS AMERICAN Won. Lost. P.C.

MORROW The news that Cardston ball tcssers will Invade Lethbrldue tomorrow, Wednesday, afternoon to engage In a clash with the locals, was good news to the fans and a big crowd will be on deck for the holiday afternoon game. Cardston team always did put up a good exhibition of ball here, and judging from the report that they are billed to play Vulcan during the stampede, tti� Cardston fellows must think they have some squad. And with the redou'otabls Beazer on the firing line, thsy m?y have some reason for thlni^lng so. Beazer Is recognized as strikeout king of the south, so the local tossers had better dig up their batting clothes. The local team isn't exactly the unknown quantity it was before its clash with Turin. There vvlll be two or three changes In the lineup that will considerably strengthen It, and the boys have a hunch that .the Cardstonite? will go homo sadder and wise.-. Jack Morrison will handle the irdicator and the game is called for about 6.30. CALGARY GOLFERS > GOING TO SPOKANE ? Spokane, July 9.-Harry G.

Toledo 10,' 12, 4; Indianapolis 5, 9, 4, Heavy Stickers of Former Years Are Trailers. "Last year's batting averages don't count." This cryptic remark was made to me In tho spring by foxy Clark Griffith of the Nationals in a discua3ioi\ tho big league hitters. Never has the remark proved more worthy of consideration than right now. Looking over recent bat,tlng averages one finds that Winly one of the really greats of the American league swalsmen ot 1917 is anywhere near his last year form. Cobb Is batting under .290, Speaker is just over the .300 mark. Veach and Felsch are down.the line considerably. Sleler is the only one of last year's heavy hitters who is up there. Tlie places have been taken by Babe Ruth, who as a pinch hitter and general utility man as well as pitcher, is leading the league. Tilly Walker, who fell down pitifully last year; George Burns, let go by Detroit because he could not stick well enough, and Home Run Baker, who has not hit up to his old-time standard for three or four years. A similar situation exists In the National league. Roush and Hornsby, tho sensations of last year, are down in the ruck, while their places are usurped by Larry Doyle, who was thought to be about through; Red Smith ot Boston, Fred Merklo of tho Cubs and Jack Daubert of Brooklyn, all ot them old-tlmeri Benny Kaut Is the only 1917 hitting star who . Is repeating this year. Ot course, the season is not old yet. Cobb Is due to greatly Improve his batting. So is Speaker. ' Cobb has been bothered by illness this year. He did not got started 'right and was thrown out of the game by an injury just when he began to show signs of bolstering up his batting average. Speaker haa had a disastrous batting Slump. It's harder to figure on Roush and Hornsby. Both are young and' their performances last year were the first which showed phenomenal promise, but it is safe to predict that both will bo tlpding their b.itling eyes before Clio season Is rm'-\\ I'urthtr advanced. But at tho beat Griffith is right. "Last year's batting averages don't count." SUITS FOR MEN $25 To most men all stars in the Heavens look ali'kev but to an astronomer every one has an individuality. THE SAME WITH CLOTHES Many men think that all suits are alike-they know nothing ot tailoring nor do they profess to know. Keel's suits at twenty-five dollars are so unusual a line as to provide a surprise even tor the most critical. In fact, there's so much difference in our selections and what other shops show at this price that you don't need to be an export to tell the advantage of one over the other.

Tho Chin ball team celebrated the glorious Fourth by taking the scalp of the Burdett crew 6 to 2. This is the first game of the season for the Chin crew, and Ihoy are threatening dim things to otlier teams In Southern Al-Wrta.
