BALL BURLESQUE Fans Had Plenty of Excitement -Locals Lost After Having Game Sewed Up HENDERSON LAKE Aquatic, sports yesterday put on by the Lethhridge Aquatic Association Attracted the attention of a goodly number of spectators, who greatly enjoyed the various thrills provided for them. / The weather was fine, but tho wind made conditions ratliur unfavorable lor good racing. The first event was the sailing race In which the following started: R. Barrowman, T. C. Kidpath, R. A. Smith, E. Butler, A. R. Kinnear. The course was once round tho lake and a start was made in a stiff breeze, which proved too much for Kinnear, who came to grief rounding tho first buoy, and led to collision between Barrowman and Butler, and necessitated much care in rounding ' the buoys. The entries finished in the order named above aftetva wot and stormy passage. Barrowman winning by a short boat length from Rldpath. Tho canoe events brought out some youngstors, who showed very great promise, and If they will practice and train a little, future regattas should be very greatly improved. The following uro the results: Canoe Fours: 1, T. C. Ridpath, Tom Martin, Allen Ridpath and Parkes; 2, K. Butler, A. Fox, S. Payne and A. Queen. Tilting: Barrowman paddled Parkes who upset Andrew Queen paddled by E. Butler. Canoe Doublos: 1, E. Butler and Allen Ridpath; 2, T. C. Ridpath and 8. Payne. Single Canoo: 1, V. Pnrkos; 2, B. Butler. 1 .. Crab Race: 1, V. Parks and Allen Ridpath; 2, 8. Payne and T. C. Ridpath. A club picnic followed, which proved a pleasant wind-up to tho day's rueeedlMi. SPORT NOTK8 � Cheney, Brooklyn's big pitcher, uses the spitball too much. When the weather becomes wet and soggy he cannot control It. McGraw's pitchers are fit, with the exception of Tesreau. Schupp, Benton, Porrltt, Anderson and Salee ought to keep tho Giants on top for tho rest of the campaign. Hi Myers is making Brooklyn fans forget Jake Daubert. Myers should be kept on first as long as he" can out-hit the $9,000 star. Jnck Lelivelt, onco with the Yankees, is leading the American association In batting. Stallings' old battle cry, "Robbed by the umpire!" is played out. He has parleyed a good ball club Into a bunch of has beens and minor leaguers. Clark. Griffith, of the Washington*, is experimenting with Inflolder Billy Murray, late of Brown university. Tho leading pitcher in the American Association is Flllingim, of Indianapolis, who was tried by Connie Mack in 1915. As sue Willi played last ulgllt Carmangay ball team came in crowd, gathered a flock of runs and left in a sand storm. They made both a glorious debut and a glorious exit. Fourteen to twelve with Carmangay on the long side of a slugging battle tells the story better than words. Carmangay gathered 14 hits good for 27 bases, piled up 14 runs after Lethhridge had them in the hole 8 to 2 in the third innings, perpetrated eight errors and won the game. They used three pitchers while Lethhridge had no relief in sight for Currle and ho had to stand for the bombardment.. At that tho Carmangay crew hud no license to pull so many extra base hits off his delivery. Wooden fielding in the gardens could he taxed with about 10 of the extra bases. But for all that, the crowd of 500 showed that they liked the Wednesday evening holiday game served up with plenty of tobasco sauce to make it good and hot. It's a pipe they hud plenty of action for their money. Lethhridge started oft! like a house afire, garnering three in tho first, three in the second and two in the third. Meantime Carmangay had scored, two, one in each the second and third. It looked like a walkaway for Lethhridge with Currle pitching nice ball. In the fourth Carmangay flocked four hits for three runs, Beard had relieved Morrill who essayed to slant them over for Cnrmangay, in the first of the second after Lothbrldge had shoved across two counters. Beard travelled along well and so did Cnrrie until tho glorious seventh, and if the crowd didn't get its money's worth in that.'stanza they are hard to please. Carmangay came up and busted the old ball on tho nose for four runs. Murril livnt. up hit a homer. Then Jonsen followed suit. Wiggen drew a wall: and Merlak pickled one for throe rfacks. Ho came in on an error by Currle. That put Carmangay ahead for the first time. Then Lethhridge came up and repeated Carmangay'b performance though the locals did it on four singles, an error and a passed ball. That put Lethhridge to the good by 12 to !> and it looked as though Lethhridge might win after all. But In the eighth, Carmangay still hud some shrods of their batting togs, and aided by a_nonuorly zephyr carrying some few carloads of sand, they poked four to the outer gardens for five more runs. Two wnlkB put Currle In the hole in this frame. A relief pitcher would have helped a lot but reinforcements were not available. Lethhridge tried hard to even it up in thoir part of the sandstorm inning, but McCumber, who had replaced Board in the seventh, used his steam and Lethhridge couldn't tell the ball from the sandstorm. The featnro play of the game came in the second when Currle picked a line drive off his shoe tops and doubled the runner at second base. The game was ragged but full of pep and kept tho orowd in a fronay Tho Carmangay boys are- all outsiders except McGinnls. Six of thorn are from one high school team in Seattle. Beard, who went in to pitch In the second Innings whon Merrill blow up, tried out with tho Spokane Indiana this spring.' They looked mighty peppery although they did play ragged ball lust night. i Letubrldge had tue weakest Une-up Young Al Ross Victim of Mistake Didn't Fight at the Hat Yesterday Knockout Stuff Was all Bunkum Somebody pulled a bloomer as big as a houBe 'down at Medicine Hat' yesterday. The report came over the wire that Clonic Tait's young brother had knocked out "Young Ross of Winnipeg." There was consternation round the old burg when this spread around for "Young Hoss of Winnipeg" Is the lnon-acker under which our own A! Ross, middleweight has been fighting for years. Everyone imagined that Clonic Tait's family possessed something In tho way of a monster prodigy who carried a kick in either mitt, and that by some fluke he had knocked Al Rosr out, Ross not having trained any for the bout. It. was also thought peculiar that Ross should be fighting there in a preliminary, local fight fans having heard nothing about it. The mystery was all explained this morning when the Medicine Hat "News" came to hand with the following about the fight: "'The first preliminary was a go between Alex. Tait. of Edmonton, (brother of Clonie)' and Kid McConkoy, or Great Falls. This was short and sweet, Tait going after his man at the bell and after putting him down for a count of nine, toppled him over to dreamland with a right cross to the jaw. Tait is only a youngster, but with experience he will make a good one." Whether It was just a boner or malice aforethought on the part of someone in the Hat that prompted "the sending out the wire the Herald received we do not know but we are going to find out. Meanwhile Young Ross is hale and hearty and is commencing to train for his bout at tho fair at Raymond with the Norway Boy. E I ? TWO CHALLENGES / ? * - > ? of the season. Cosgriff was out of town. The Gillis boys refused to play for some reason or other. Williams wasn't on deck. There wasn't a relief pitcher anywhere in the ofhng so that Lethhridge didn't really expect to win the game, especially in view of Carmangay's great reputation. Carmangay rooters were there like ducks. They had their boy band with them. They had 01 auto loads of rooters working overtime. What more could they want? The box score: Carmgngay-McCabe, 2b .. Hawks, 3b .. Beard, cf, p, Merrill, p, cf .. , Jensen, c ..... Wiggen, If..... Merlak, ss..... McCumber, rf, lb, McGinuis, lb, if Anderson of Champion and Pilling of Lethhridge divided honors in the trap shooting tournament of the Alberta Gun Club held here yesterday afternoon, when Lethhridge shooters entertained shots from Carmangay and Champion. The above shots tied on the total scor#. Pilling won 1st in event 5 for the McKillop prizes, with Anderson second. The shoot was a very pleasant one and a large portion of the Carmangay crowd came out to the traps to watch tho shooting. The following are the scores: Event No. Number of Targets F.

THCYCOtlt Carmangay |ny�dod Lethbridgo with a brass band If Connie Mack's plans work out | the fans a couple of years hence will be speaking of Grover and Witt as1 : one of the greatest defensive key-i stone sack combinations in baseball. : Since he has been in baseball Mack I has succeeded in developing two ; great combinations around second base. Murphy and Monte Cross and '. Collins and Barry, .lust now ho is | trying to get the same kind of n i combination out of his two young In-; fielders, who already show signs of future brilliance. : Both""* Witt and Grover are very I young. This year is the latter's first break into major league circles. Witt j played last year. | Although they do not show the pol-' ish of many older inlleldors in the I league, they do show thoy are developing along the same lines that made I the Collins-Barry combination fatal to 'anything hit down In their territory, j Their co-operation is superb and 1 thoy think quickly, grasping sltua-j tiouj^ more quickly than many other short stops and second basemen of far more experience. Mack is very confident of their ability to ultimately produce the sunie kind of fine, tight infield play that he developed in the Cross-Murphy, Collins-Barry combinations. "It takes more than mechanical ability to prodnco tho proper results around second base," Mack said. "It takes brains and ability for close cooperation. I bellevo I will get all three in Witt and Grover." It is one of Mack's beliefs that a great bull club can not be developed without a great second base comblna-j tlon. �He cites Ferris and Parent of tho old Boston club, Cross and Murphy and Collins and Barry of his own clubs, Tinker and Kvers of the Cubs, Barry, and Scott of the Red Sox and Maraiivllle and Evers of the 1914 Braves. To these might be added Schaeffer and O'Leary of Detroit, for several years considered one of the best second base combinations in tho' American league and who wore in no small degree responsible for Detroit winning the American league flag three years in succession. It Is difficult to judge tho effectiveness of an iuflelder under the present system of averages, but rocords show tho number of chaneea made by the fielders who have passed from the game and whose real work iu only memory. The combinations just mentioned handled everything that came to the middle of the diamond. Some have been credited with errors on hard i chances they went after and missed, and the records show that the really tight infield is often an infield with more errors than one which does not play such tight baseball. The records uphold Mack's contention that the great ball club must have a great second base shortstop combination. Mack has been a great developer of infielders. In addition to his shortstops and second basemen he developed two great third basemen, Lave Cross and Frank Baker, and is now making a good third sacker of Ray Bates, sent back to the minors from Cleveland as a misfit. He made two great Initial sackers, Harry Davis and Stuffy Mclnnis. Past hiBtory has often repeated in baseball. Do not be surprised if Mack comes through with another fast second base combination. FULTON PUT K. 0. ON JACK MORAN Chicago, July 10.-Fred Fnlton, Minnesota heavyweight, knocked out .lack Moran, of St. Louis In the third round of a scheduled 12 round bout at St. Louis. PATRIOTIC TENNIS TOURNEY EVANS TWO UNDER PAR George Sargent and Otis George, Minneapolis, professional golf players, defeated Charles "Quick" Evans of Chicago, and Harry G.
