I ARE AMERICANS In patting themselves on the back and sticking out their chests because some of their boxers who have never dotmed a mitt outside of their native state are hailed as champions, some American ring critics evidently overlook the fact that there are other champions on this mundane sphere. Present day championship contests are, practically confined to home town competition in tho states. There is no international flavor to ring matches nowadays. Willard, the Gibbons brothers, Hermann and Kilbane have never met other than American op ponents, Carpentier and Wilde, on the other hand, have defeated American title claimants decisively. But, because nearly every world's championship boxing title is held in tho United States it does not necessarily follow that Uncle Sam's domain in the home of the best battlers. Until Carpentjer, European heavyweight champion, it beaten by Willard or the champion of the day, fight fans the world over will be justified in claiming honors for the Frenchman. Tho death of Les Darcy removed a fighter of extraordinary ability, and who was not an American and who, had he lived would undoubtedly have established a clear claim to the middleweight divieion. He Is an Englishman. Going further we find the fly-) weight crown resting on the brow of Jiairay Wilde, the clever Welsh battier. He handed America's challengers what Leonard passed on to Freddie Welsh. Follow*** of boxing will recognise Willard as American heavyweight champion; Mike Gibbons as middleweight champion; Tom Gibbons, light heavyweight champion; Ted I^ewis, welterweight champion; Benny Leonard, Ugfctwetgbt champion; Johnny Kilbane, feathorweight champion; Pete Herman, bantam, champion, and Jimmy Wilde, flyweight champion. IGHT MOTER BLUNTS wonder why sortiefellows don't." s Despite everything-still 3 for a quarter. S. DAVIS & SONS, LIMITED, MONTREAL. Tribe Going Out to Reverse the Decisions of Last Tw^p Holiday Games Rutledge will lead the local tribe, in their onslaught on Warner in tonight's game at Eck-storm park. This is the first time Rutledge has shown his wares to the Lethbridge public who will not be disappointed. A relief pitcher, probably Halveraon, who was to have worked against Turin last Saturday evening, will be on deck. The locals are out to reverse the result of the last two Wednesday holiday games. After winning four in a row, they have dropped two and tied one and they think they arc about due to deliver. Green will play the sun-field, making sure that the awkward garden will be taken care of. It is possible that a new face will be seen on the infield as Cosgriff will not be in town to work on short. "Hap" Berg's crew from the south is coming up all primed to win. They have two regular pitchers, Cld and Skinner with Ford to do the receiving. Berg can go into the box himself on a pinch but usually disports in the shortfield. Last week there were more than 700 people, including many fans out of the city on the holiday, but still there was a good crowd at the ball ~ie. This'week there is no cou, : -r attraction and the tands should ,be packed. The game starts at 6.15. Judging by the cnthusias-m with which the announcement of a baseball i tourney during stampede week has been met over the countryside, it's just a question now how nrJiny teams will enter and how many games will have to be played to decide the championship. Tho local management has assurance of eight teams anyway, and there may be 1G. Eight teams will make seven games necesary. if 3(1 put in an appearance 15 games will have to be playod, which would make a wholo week of baseball. Stavely claims "'�-the championship of the south owing to their win at Medicine Hat. They have a classy | team, well balanced, with dependable j pitchers and real sluggers. But Gar- j mangay was barrod from the Hat struggle. Not so In tho Lethbridge tourney. The Carmangny squad ha3 been trimmed by Champion and Stavely and there is no hint o� unbeatable- j ness about them. Travers team j thinks it can turn the trick against j tho Carmangny squad with Buckley in ; the box. And there are othor teams j in the south that have the stuff to do it. Tuber, Burdett, Bow Island, | Orion, Etzikom, Warner, New Day- 1 ton, Retlaw, Cards ton, Magrath, Hay- j mond, Champion, Vulcan and half a | dozen other towns are not afraid to I stack their best up against eithor : Carmangay or Stavely. ] Entries are supposed to be all in i by August 7th, a week before the tour- ! ney opens.
