JUVENILE BASEBALL Last night there was an interest- ing game of baseball on the square between a famous team named the Red Sox and a new. team known as the Presbyterian Boys' Club. There was fun for the boys and fun for the crowd, and at times it looked as if would be fun for the umpire, a swarm of gesticulating boys gathered around to criticise some of his decisions. The boys were up to business and passed the box around for a collection, which was divided equally between the two clubs. The play at times was good, but there was even more fun when a wild throw was made or somebody made a home run. Both sides still claim a win but the umpire decided in fa- vor, of the Red Sox by The crowd enjoyed the game so much that they crowded aroun-d so close as hardiy to give the boys a fair show in fielding. After the game the boys cheered heartily and. divided up the proceeds of .01 their collection. -That was hardly done when the tolled its Then it was skidoo in all directions. As each dong came it was another home. The men. enjoy- ed the whole fun they had all been boys once upon a time.

Some of the intermediates will likely have a chance in the game, young McGreery, Helmer and Devine.

An old familiar figure on the la- crosse field will be seen when Alex. Stafford takes his position at centre.

But the New-Westminster defence knew the penally of such a movement and waited also for an attack. The game dragged mean- while for the spectators. On each occasion it ended a New West- minster man securing the sphere and sending it back down the field for a trv on the Capital goal, and a re-pi- tition of the waiting game. The New Westminster defence was in excellent condition and capable of handling all that came its way, otherwise the story would have prob- ably been a different one, for the de- fence'was severely tested. Calbraith and the G-iffords were rocks of strength, and the Rennles were among the best, men on the field, especially Tom., who appeared to'be one man who had not under- estimated his .opponents and was playing the game every inch of the way. 'Sandy Gray, -in goal, handled his end of the, work doing all that a man could do. and he was called upon to. handle-a bunch of stingers from the sticks of AlcDoug- all, Gorman and ilurton. The Regina defence was a whole bundle of surprises to the Now West- minster men. Bun Clarke, they knew of oW, but probably even at that they -underestimated his ability. As a goal tender he is nothing short of a marvel': all was grist that came to his mill, nothing was too hot to slop if he was there. OFFICE SUPPLIES PRINTING WESTERN STATIONERY CO., LTD.

Once in the dear dead days beyond recall You licked us somewhat badly at a game of ball. You've been so 'much elated and in- flated over this, That you're feeling mighty cocky and think you couldn't miss. So you've issued us a challenge in a most insulting way, And inferred that there was really not a game that we could play. Of baseball, football, marbles, you have given us to choose (You might have put in ping pong, if not afraid to lose.) we're after you, by thundfer, and time we're out for gore, On the diamond we will fix you so you won't be shouting "More." Your "Teddy" is a dandy, but we've got one just as fat, Who's wise enough himself to know the right end of a bat. We accept your bold And we'll trim you or'we'll die. So come on as you oughter, And arrange the date of .slaughter. THE CALLIES WON Las-t .night's football game finished one-round of the City Football Lea- gue schedule. The series is half over. The Callies d'efeared the A. 0. F. by four goals to one. Though the score was somewhat one-sided, still the ball went back and forth from end to end. The throughout was marked by clean sport and everyone was good natured over it. There was very little rough play. The Callies had the nrst kick-off and after about ten minutes' play Flem- ing scored 'the first goal, for the Scots. Shortly afterwards the Cal- lies secured a penalty, but it was well stopped by the Foresters. After a pretty piece of passing another goal was scored for the Scots by White. Later another goal was scor- ed by White and another by Flem- ing. The-strong wind bothered, the players considerably in the first half. Holbertpn was, referee, gave gen- satisfaction, though at times he had difficulty in following the ball from end to. A.O.F. were quite aggressive and once secured a lucky shot.and one At first a large crowd watched the game. .But there, was a. rival attrac- tion in a lively baseball game be- lt ween 'the youngsters whose noisy cheering drew the crowd away at half time. But manv returned to see I the football game. STANDING OF THE LEAGUE ..Won Lost Points Callies 3 06 S. 0. G................'..., 4 Maple Leafs............ 1 2 2. A. O.

The Swedish representative accepted this view. The council, it is said, did not act in a spirit of criti- cism of anything that happened in England its opinion was that the contests could be conducted with greater good will if they were under international control.
