Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 4, 1915, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 1915 THE LETHBRIPGE DAILY HERALD PAGE THRIB HOW JACK BONE COBB PUT PITCHER UP IN AIR AND WON GAME FORMER LETHBRIDGE FOOTBALL PLAYER AND HIS MEN HELD GROUND WHEN TERRI- TOHIALS RETREATED Local football followers will lie in- terested to hear of IJoutenant Jack Bone, former player of the club, who is in the mitre of the hot- test, fighting in France with the cele- brated "Black Watch." Hen; is a letter just received from Lieut. Hone am! handed to the Herul'J per- usal. It reads in part as follows .With regard to my commis- tii'ii, Jack, 1 will try to describe, briefly Ihe fight which" preceded ami actually led to my being.made an Jicer. "My company had been sent up to Oiveiitihy us a working party tin the 23rd fit January, for the purpose ol digging supporting anil communica- tion trenches to the 3rd brigade. 1 jn.iv mention that at this time the zegiuient had just come out of the trenches at Oivenchy. and were lying back io support for a short rest. It is the duty of the regiments in sup- port to find these working parties. Well, on the 23rd and 24th nothing out of the ordinary happened, and we, (I. mean my who wore in a cellar in the village about 100 yards from the firing line, were con- gratulating ourselves on being reliev- ed in an hour's time, and were sit- ting having breakfast whan the Ger- mans started to bombard the vilUgu. Uust across the road from our cellar a church which was partly blown to pieces, and on which the Germans seemed to range their guns for our benefit. A J. JOHNSOIs KNOCKOUT The shells fell ill around us inbout tiro aed a half hours, till evcn- Slmally a Jack Johnson canie through fthe roof of our oellar, killed, two of my men eutright, woundsd five, and buried two more in the debris, whom I managed to d4g out before they wore suffocated, I knew that as soon as the bombardment cooled down, I (would have to rush round aad halp the regiment in the trenches to trepel the attack., UP AGAINST TT You cm realize my 'consternation, when on getting round to their help, which we had to do under very heavy fire, and in which 1 lost ten men, fco find them oa the retreat. We tried 60 stop them, oven going as far as knocking them baofc into the trench with our'rifles, hut it was no good. Tlwy thought their position hopeless. Of course they were territorials, I won't mention their names. TOOK ANOTHER POSITION Well, as it was hopeless for me to try aad stop three hundred Germans .-with forty men, at that particular placo, I took iny men down to the lower part of the village, manned a supporting trench there, and held the Village coid, "By this 'time the enemy were fiwarmteg through the whole place Und trying to break through us, but we hung on like grim death for over BB hour, when we were reinforced by platoons, WOOING ENEMY OUT "Then tlie tun began; properly. We got ''orders to. Qoiinter-afctaek, which we did. to some tune. Up we went, cheering like mad, digging them 'olit houses the bayonet and shooting or stabbing every Gorman that came out war. I tell you that village was a little hell for half an hour. When we had cleared the vil- lage out we charged the trench, re- captured it and a hundred and fifty Germans along with it. CASUALTIES HEAVY "It was a good day's work, you'll admit, but we had quite a few cas- ualties. Out of my gallant little band T had onlr serai men left, 10 killed, 37 wounded, this was over a third of the casualties we had m the whole offupany. Not a single-German got baok, we killed three hundred besides capturing the 150 above- mentioned." Kitchener WOMEN HIT ON HEAD AND OF- FICIALS STOPPED "SILLY" GAME A baseball game in Australia re- cently came to an abrupt conclusion when a couple of balls were hii, into the crowd of spectators. There was fear of death from speedy fly- ing spheroids, as thu following ac- count taken from the Sydney, Aus- tralia, Herald, intimates "There was a dramatic conclusion to the baseball match, America vs. i Australia, played at the Agricultural show ground on Saturday afternoon i as an item on the program of the I Police and Firemen's Patriotic Car- nival. lu America's second inning a player deflected a fast ball straight for the densest portion of the crowd, and ii scream was heard. The ambu- lance men rushed to the spot, and found that a woman had been struck on the head by the ball, but was not seriously injured.

Burns, from third base, had raced for home when Morgan caught Doyle's fly. The Boston outfielder threw the 'ball toward the home plate, hut Doyle of the Giants intercepted it at first feue. It was his contention, that the bail was too late to catch Burns at home. The umpires ruled that his in- terference retired the base runner, Hntf the score was lost. fickleness of fandom is boing shown in New York and Phila- delphia, whore the crowds are giving the go-by- to the Giants and the Ath- letics and are paying tribute to the Yankees and the Phillies. The achievements oi the Giants and Athletics in other years apparently have been forgotten the miserable work of the Yankees and Phillies-in the other years has been forgotten. It seems to he the oase af "it isn't what you used to be, ft's what you are today." The Giants have blown fco a miserable start, while the once downtrodden Yankees have gotten away -jn a batter position than at any time in the last five or six years. As a result the fans have turn- ted from the once mighty and oace idolised McGraw outfit to worship at feet of Wild Bill Donovan's Yan- kees. In- Philadelphia the Athletics, who have won greater fame and glory than any other team t'nat ever play- ed under one standard, have started poorly. The Phillies, who never hare won a pennant, blew themselves to an amazing start. 'And the fans have deserted the Mackian crowd and have over to the Phillies. Those who feel that Connie Mack wrecked his machine by letting go of Eddie Collins, Jack Coombs, Chief Bander and Eddie Plank, claim that it f orders, and" play .j. .j, .j. ,j.
