The same scheduled to tako place at mond Saturday didn't materialize. Lethbridge failed to put In an ap- pearance upon the field of battle, and therefore defaulted the game Wh> Not because tuei hesitated about facing the issue They were the vie tims of unfortunate circumstances. The Alexandra bus was chartered to take'the team to Raymond and 'left here about four o'clock. Everything went merrily for about six .miles when the gearing of the big car went awry.' An Inspection of the break made it apparent tliat the big conveyance would never see the team into Raymond that evening so (ho nearest telephone was- brought Into acquisition and autos sought in the citj to complete the louinej It was close upon seven o'clock when the first arrived and with the other two which were sent for nowhere in sight there wai nothing to do but call the tnp off t Raymond has nothing to gain by claiming'the rame and as Lath- hridge and Raymond have been playing boll for three years now on the beet of friendly terms there is no doubt, but what1 the sugar town will be courteous to Lethbridge and willingly play the game on another date. If. the game goes to Raymond, Lethbridge-and Taher will be prac- tically tie again In. the league, race with prospects of finishing the season that way..
