Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 7, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD FRIDAY. .TUNE 7, lf)18 **BRINGING UP FATHER" By G. McManus i I BASEBALL BOXING RACING SPORT HOCKEY GOLF BOWLING Fans Urge the Old Timers to Play Ball Game for Red Cross Every ball faa in Lethbrldge is Itohing; for a chance to see a ball game. It -wouldn't make much dUferencB whether the brand ot ball was the major league variety or not, juit 80 it was a game. . The only hope {or a game i^ to brine out the old timers, warriors oC a thousand battles. It may be that the High School could scare up a eecoud nine, or probably two teams ot forty-niners could be compiled. It would supply a little amusement for the tarnished fans and probably enough ' shekels could be raked in to make a sub-etantial donation to the Red Cross. At any rate it wouldn't be a bad scheme to try It out. Following are some of the old war horses who might be prevailed upon to perform: Brandow, Kenny, Gallivau, Stanley McLevat. C'arberry, Evans, Len Green. Murphy. Cum-niingB, Simonrts, Vennerwitz, Scott, Briggs, Stewart, Dobson, Morrison, Powell, and any others, players and otherwise who feel that they might like to entertain the multitude at two bits a throw. There is a great opportunity for some snappy organizer to get busy with this bunch and enrich the coffers of the Red Cross. We can name the batteries for a starter-Scott and Brandow, Vennerwitz and Green. Don't ever think the fans wouldn't pay their two bits to see the battle. Get busy and make some use of this daylight saving.

Little Bob has been playing even better golf this season than last and his accomplUhment in defeating Bvana 1 up In this match ia being heralded by the golfers of the south as splendid achievement tor a golfer ot his age. Little Bob turned in a card of 74, Evans 75, Edwards 78 and Wood 82. Souvenir acore cards with the photos ot the tour players were aold to the gallery tor |1' each and from this and other means the special match added $4,100 to the Red Cross funds, a splendid showing.

Had Fleetwood won last 'night they would have tied with Central for first place, and the tie would have, had to be played off to decide the cliampion-.ship. However Central came through, though 6o:iie Fleetwood supporters declare that the result ot the game was 5-5. Bissett and JlcCambly formed the battery for the Centrals while Goeg-began and Kemm jvere the heavy artillery for the Fleetwoods. The game went seven innings and was handled by Tommy Evans.

Chicago.-.Now that the Jess Wil-lard-Fred F^tlton heavyweight chaiu-plonship battle is off until after the war, which practically means for good, tho passing ot Jess Wlllard will probably follow soon. Some match tor war charities might be arranged, but it is hardly probable. Public sentiment seeme to have been so thoroughly aroused against a heavyweight match that there is little likelihood of Wlllard ever getting into tho ring again In a title bo.ut. Willard will probably retire. He never did care much for the fight game, engaging in 11 merely as a means to an end-that is, the amassing of a fortune. This he has done, and it will not be necessary for him to enter tho ring again for the mere purpose of swelling his bank account. Two Contenders. With Willard disposed of there remains only two men in tho heavyweight field-Fulton and Jack Demp-sey, tho Pacific coast slugger. Demp-sey always hankered for a crack at Jess, but whether he will havo any success in luriiig Jess Into the' ring for H 10-round bout' is (luile problematical. He must look to Fulton if he wants a chance at the title, which wll probably be in the air. If Willard retires. Dempsey, 'tis said. Is willing lo mix It with Fred, but the plasterer is not so anxious. But if he wants to gel a battle for any appreciable amount of money he will have to take It on Jack, for Jack ia the only formidable warrior now in sight. That Dempsey Is the best was shown In his recent battle with Billy .MIske. Last minute worries brought on by John the Barber Relsler put Dempsey out of sorts just before the fight, and in his effort to overcome them he overtrained and was his best In the ring with Miske. Still he pounded Billy about as he willed, and once got home a pile driver. Had he trained to the minute there is little doubt that he would have put Miske away. Kelly Beosta Dempsey, "Spider" Kelly, a keen observer ot fighters, one whose opinion is to be reckoned with, saw the Mleke-Demn-Boy bout and paid this tribute to the Paclfi'c coast slugger: "Dempsey demonstrated to me in this battle that he is one of the greatest fighters ever, ills class was shown the Instant he entered the ring and began slamming his man around. First one hand went-the left In the third round-and then the other, tho right going In the seventh. "Jack will be the next champion If they give him a chance to fight tor it. He is a natural distance battler, and in 20 rounds there isn't a man in the world who haa a chance with him, and this takes in all at them, irrespective. Continuing, Kelly .spoke of tho strain Dempsey worked under when hi! took on .Miske. Dempsey Was Worried, '"I'he people will never know what a gieat victory this was for Jack," ho said. "The boy was torn with fea^ of ftoisler the barber. The threats that were made of stopping the battle got him. It wore on hini as It would on anyiiody. I could see he wasn't, right the minute I got to St. Paul. In trying to work off tho despondency he overworked In tho gymnasium and on the road, and when he got Into the ring he was away too light, and only half nourished. "This is no alibi for the boy, because he put up a groat fight against a great man, and deservoe all tho credit In the world." With this recognition of the abilities of the western fighter it certainly looks as if Jack is the kingpin in tho heavy class to-day outside of Willard and Fulton. But with Wlllard oul.ot the way Fulton must come through and give Jack a chanco to de moustrato his powers. to provide a largo shield. An entertainment will ho given on Thursday, Juno lath, the proceeds of which will i)e devoted to this purpose. An oxcpI-lent program, consisting ot play, drill, music and elocution Is provided. Tho admission will be 25c and 50c respectively. Our hopes were again raised by tho splendid rain of Wednesday, (From Our Own CorrcsDonaent) Coaldalc, June 6.-Mr. and Mrs. Jno. M. D. Davidson returned on Friday from t'hlcago and otlier points in Illinois. Mr. Davidson reports that he never saw crop prospects across the line better than this season. L. ,R. Schrumni was In attendance at the .\lbertii Methodist Oonferenco In Edmonton during last week and the first part of this week, as a delegate from tho congregation here. Rev. J. .M. Fawcett and Sam Allen returned on Wednesday from Kdmon-ton. The last draft ot the conference stationing committee places Mr. Fawcett at Mentley, about 15 miles west of i^ttcombo. He is succeeded on tho circuit here by Rev. Hulierl Hnzom-worth, B.A.. who comes hero from Athahaska Landing. Medical Inspection. Tho pupils of the school arc receiving medical inspection this week. This work is being done by Miss Davidson, one of the Public Health Department nurses. .This is a new departure on tho part ot the Government and one that should prove popular with the province. On .Monday four Public Health nurses loft Edmonton under direction from .Miss Smith, superintendent ot P. H. nurses, tor tour different sections of the province, from which requests had come for school inspection. .Miss Davidson began her work here yesterday and will bo here several days. This afternoon she addressed the ladies of the district at a pubic meeting, on the purpose of tho. department, the purpose ot the school Inspection, and asking for the co-operation ot parents in tile Interests of better health. Her work here Is much appreciated an.i we have a certain pride that ours is the first school to be inspected. Any schools near here desiring inspection should communicate at once with Miss Davidson, at Coaldale -School, a.s 8he.,l3 desirous ot getting In touch with such early. Interest In Red Cross sewing continues unabated. Our women deserve credit and praise tor their untiring efforts In this direction. *lany of them havo their own work to do nt home, and Bllll, after preparing meals for a staff of farm help, find time for outside work of this kind. .Many who cannot attend the sewing "beo" every week, take work homo with thorn. A large bag full of work is done every week. An Accident. Mr. and Mrs. Norman Wells had an unpleasant accident last week when In crossing an Irrlgulion ditch the wagon jolted and threw them out. Mrs. Wells sustained painful injuries but is able to be around again.
