This burg, our neighbors on the west, are going to be heard from in, this. South Alberta League, and the Lethbridge teams need to take jump to themselves or Ihdy will find themselves at the wrong end of the League." This was Grassy Lake's first appearance against a team for over two-rears, the las occasion being when the S.O.E. took their scalps two years ago. But things arc different there now, and'a team that-beats Iheir present line-up hns to put up a good of soccer.

At one tune Billy was the best and fastest outside left in the district. Grassy Lake was .also shy of two or three of their best men, hut displayed great ability and were very confident of pulling out winners which they did by a score of 3-1, the winning goal being scored in the last few minutes of the game. ,The great game of the week was the one played on the Overseas ground on Wednesday, when the Rangers ivcnt up against the .Macleod aggregation in another district league fixture. Much interest was shown and 'a good ly. crowd lined up, but that crowd did -not number one-third what it should have done, and what the mutch was .Wul'iii.

Tonight the Hovers are playing Macleod in the League game sched- uled1 for next- Tuesday, but which lor the the Rovers is switched.

Baseball, to those who rea'lly. know it, needs no defense. Thoroughly un derstandlrig ttie game, they recognize the impossibility of it being "fixed' In any way, shape or manner. There are, of course, a large number of per- sons who follow baseball'in a super- ficial fashion who" are ready to echo he cry of "fraud" that is raised lerlodlcally when contests, of impor- tance are being played. The different world's championship series, because of their extreme close- ness, and the honor and large amount of money at stake, have been stigma- ized privately by thousands of "wise" ndividnals as being fraudulently con- ested. The seesaw of victory and defeat is to them sufficient proof if the dishonesty of the games. Hark back to the final inning of the games seesawed. No players, even Tigers, on October 14, 1909. That iniah should be sufficient answer to ny charges of crookedness that may particular series and there ;as plentj of talk regarding' the manner in which the games seesaw ed No plaj ers er would have consented to life and limb as the Pittsbburg base runners did in their.'desperate efforts to snatch victor} irom defeat pre arrangement.
