Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 23, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX THE LETHBR|DGE DAILY HERALD TUESDAY, JULY 23, 1918 "BRINGING UP FATHER' �)OHE ONE VANTb TO XOU - By G. Mc Manna The Sport Page n BARONS TON CARDSION AN VOLCANWEO.AJ. Boyle on Wark's Ruling-Scott Untitled To Go Back To Third Weather permitting-and it doesn't loog at this writing as if it would- Barons ball team will play Lethtridge tonight at 6:45. The Barons team is strong in ono dopartaiont at least, having three pitchers, Rutledge, who pitched a few games for our side last emnme?, Skinner, who pitched for Warnor and another. The team claims it hasn't been beat this year. So if the game comes off it will be worth ^vatching. To those who want to know the rules on the famous play on Scott In the eighth inning of Saturday's, game with Chin we quote: Sec. 13. If, when advancing bases, or forced to run to a baae while the ball Is In play, he fail to touch the intervening base or bases. It any, in the regular or reverse order, as the case may be, he may be put out by the ball being held by a fielder on any base he failed to tonch, or being touched by the ball in the hands of a fielder In the same manner as In running to first base; provided, that the base runner shall not be out in any such THE PALACE GARAGE AND REPAIR SHOP QUICK AND SATISFACTORY REPAIRS, FULL LINE OF ACCESSOFIIES TIRES, TUBES STORAGE W.

Rue 59 also says: "A force-out caji be made only when a base-runner legally loses the right to the base he occupies by reason of the batsman becoming a base-runner, and ho is thereby obliged to advance." There doesn't seem to be much room left for argument. Scott had all the right in the world to go bac'K to third even after Green had touched it, and he wasn't out so long as the ball was not put on htm. Scott and Green could both have stood on third and neither would have been out unless the ball was played on them. There is no doubt that Wark was wTong.

But I assume from the manner ot expression that words common to the lower classeB aro used. "On a largo board at the back of the field Is enumenited the numbor of times that each troupe drops the ball The troupe dropping tho ball tho fewest times wins iho game. Unlike the bull fight, it t.� difficult to predict which will win. In that respect the American ganio ot baseball is typical of all things American-It Is more spectacular than scientific. I think.

HOLY CITY SEES E Thousands of Italians Turn Out To See First Diamond Clash By William R. Hereford, Major, A.R.C. Rome.-The United States army and navy, the American embassy, tho Y.M.C.A. and the .^.merican Red Cross played on May 19 the first basoball game ever seen In the Eternal City. The army and navy furnished the players, the embassy supplied the umpires, the Y.M.C.A. made all arrangements and the Red Cross kept the score. Italy supplied tho spectators by the thousands, so that the occasion was really symbolic of the union between all of the American forces in its several branches in Italy and tho Italian people. Army Wins. As a ball game It offered particularly good evidence that the men of our army and navy in Italy have been thinking very little of baseball these days and a great deal more ot the business for which they came over. Their business is that of flying, for the men were chosen In the American camps of naval aviators and array aviators. The army won by a score of 11 to 3. Chaplin, who used to bo a second string pitcher of Princeton, passed nine men and had six' w'd pitches. Aldworth, who pitched tor the army and who Is said to have received at one time an offer from a big league, struck out 11 men. These facts about the oppoelng pitchers tell the story. Italians Cheer. The It.-illans didn't understand what It was all about, but they made It a great occasion for patriotic rejoicing, rooting iflrst tor one side and then tho other. They came away with a confused idea ot the American national game, but with a very clear perception that the best possible fellowship prevails among all branches of the American service. One of tho papers in trying to make the people understand what baeeball really is informed Its readers before the game that baseball is really very much like tennis and golf. Bands Play National Anthem. There were two Italian bands in attendance and they took the occasion, whenever the plays became particularly exciting or a good double play WuS in progress, to atrilco up the national anthem, with tho result that every player had suddenly to forget what he was doing and stand at attentloa until the anthem was finished. It Interfered a little bit with the game, but it helped to promote the spirit of patriotic fervor among tho spectators. Carl Colquhoun, an employee of tho Ida Cereal Mills, at TiUsonburg, Ont, was dro^v^led in St. Joseph's pond while bathing. WHY NOT GO TO THE SANITARY BARBER SHOP?

It seems very strange that we should be living in a farming community and yet bo unable to obtain ono of the most essential necessities of lite. Some way must be thought of to provide fresh milk for tho many families with small children ,who prefer milk to drink Instead ot water, during tho hot weather. Mr. Gregg, who has been our dairyman for a considerable length of time, had to give up supplying tho people ot Comnierco on account of feed being so scarce, and as there was nothing on tho prairie for his stock, owing to the lack of rain, ho naturally noticed that hia milk supply was fast diminishing, and lhareforo ho was unable to supply tho demand, and now tho people are having to put up with the inconvenience of using canned milk. We are given to understand that a few ot our boys who are connected with tho Diamond City Baseball club, journeyed to Coathurat one evening last week, with tho full Intention of administering a licking to tho Coal-hurst team, but they found the boys over there In great shape and hart to suffer a licking themselves to the tune of 11 to 1. Mr. and Mrs. R. W. ToUestrup have taken up their residence In Commerce, having moved from Raymond last week. Mr. ToUestrup has accepted a position with the Chinook Coal Co.

Patterson ot tho Ellison .Milling and Elevator Co., has returned home after about a week's absence, he having been on a business trip to Ed? montou and several points in the northern district. We are sorry to relate that Mr. F. Rutkle had the misfortune, while at work, to get his hand In the circular saw at the mine, with the result that Frank had to have one of the fingers of his left hand amputated, but we are pleased to say that he is now progressing favorably.. We aro pleased to note that Mrs. J. Robertson and Mrs. W. T.
