PVLACE SOCCER JO FRONT IN CANADA Aim of Dominion Foot- ball at Winnipeg Winnipeg, July Dominion Football Association, which 'was launched tonight selected an excellent list of officers today, and have .bright prospects of putting the soccer game In the front rank major sports in Canada. The. delegates present re- ported the feeling of footballers throughout Canada, and live mode ad- opted for decision of 'the Canadian championship met with unanimous ap- proval. The officers are as follows: Patron: His Royal Highness the Duke of Conaught. Honorary President: E. Bailey Fisli- er, Winnipeg. President: Fred Barter, Montreal. Vice-President: Samuel LaTkin, Win nipeg. Secretary-treasurer: Tom Robertson Toronto. The executive committee consists of a representative from each prov ince J W Ward, Edmonton Alta Tom. Watson Toronto Malcolm Me Lean, Shoal Lake Man H Craig Campbell, Montreal The auditors appointed W DrTfforse. Montreal and H. Foster, Winnipeg. Remarks on the "Stavordale" For the first week sea- son started; the football fans of the city have had to go .unsatisfied. .Tues- day's scheduled game between the Sous of England and Overseas, was owing, it was stated, to the .weather.' Well, may be the weather was-a" little uncertain on-that night, but hardly so bad as to cause a postponement of a: football game. Anyway, thsy played baseball at the lark on Wednesday, when the weather was than Tues- day. Still, a majority of the players were due for Winnipeg and It was probably a wise'move on the part of the city league executive to .call the match off and so save the players from risk of accident. AndVin any- case match doesn't-creally matter ex- cept in so much as the, Sons would dearly like to beat the S.eas, and thus win one match ip tourney, and, on the .other hand, the. Overseas are deslrious .of keeping their record intact, so that when the clubs do meet we are-sure to see a great-same. "r Thursday's game between the. inter- mediate teams of the Callies and the Sons of England would call for little comment, but I want to. register, a. mild protest. Advertised 6.45, the match did'-' not begin.until well after eight o'clock, and as a result the game could not bo finished. Football this year has .taken a firm hold on the Lethbridge public and it is only strict attention to detail that the football authorities can hope to retain that position; Therefore Thurs- day night's proceedings are much to be, regretted. The English players were ready'to start, but apparently the Callies, were -not. Then It was found there was no which to play the game, and a had to be made to somewhere down towa to obtain the necessary sphere. the teams did eventually line up It was seen that: the Callles had enlisted the services -of.several- of; their .veterans. "Jamie" Thompson took up a position between the sticks and performed doughty deed's much to the amusement .of tho spectators. McMillan; too, .was' there, .'In a new style football helped con- in gaining the Tlctory It can be his side. Cr ao smltt. (Another Callie player, whom I'ion'' remember having seen on a Letn bridge football field before, worked strenuously, although in unorthodox costume, and at the end .was pretty the other veterans Among the others. Page, was the out standing feature, and the Scotchmen s outside left also showed up promin The Englishmen have undoubtedly a good side and if 'nursed judiciously by the S. 0. E. management, some of the juniors will make good material for the senior team In future seasons They are a well built bunch of boys and play a hard and fast -game. Pro- minent 'on Thursday night were Dal- zeh at half-back; and Roach on'the left wing. The latter was, particular- ly effective and will pay for watching. Jordan, too, fulfilled the. promise of previous matches, and played a con sistently good game. When tho game, was called owing to darkness, the Callies were leading by S to 1, but the Sons were holding their own. The match i will have to be replayed, when-it is hoped the ex ecutlve will see-to it that advertised arrangements are carried out and pre vent a fizzle like Thursday night's per- formance. The struggle Is sure to be an exciting one, as the Callies are de termined to land the 'championship, though they may not find the Sons so "easy" as.they.think. People's Shield team got away on Thursday afternoon, and a pretty good'aggregation they It is to be, hoped that their quest will be successful' and that the Shield will find a resting'place in Loth bridge. If It does, its stay here Is likely to be Indefinite, for I doubt if the trophy will be played for again, as emblematic of the soccer .champion- ship of Canada, The Dominion Foot- ball association has been formed to control tho soccer game in this coun- try, and the organizers are taking the opportunity of the gathering of club managers at Winnipeg this week to complete tho details. The nuke of Connaught has consented to become a patron of the organization and has decided to award a challenge' trophy emblematic of "the championship of Canada. The People's Shield compet- ition has had i> somewhat chequered career, but It has undoubtedly ser-red to stimulate .general interest in the great sport throughout the whole Dom- inion and the time Is now ripe to .r.ui the government of the game on a firm foundation and the formation of Pomlnion association, with subsidiary provincial will do much to wards that end. Meanwhile let us hope that our boys In .Winnipeg will surmount their Unit hurdle successfully tonight In-which event I have every confidence In their to stay the STAVORDALB.
