Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 12, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta page 6 THE LETIIBRIDGE DAILY HERALD Wednesday, June 12,1?>12 CALLIES TASTED BITTER DREGS LAST NIGHT Victims to the Onslaught of the Overseas in Their Victorious March for City Football Honors CALLIES SHUT OUT League Standing Goals P W L D F A P Overseas.....3 20 163 5 Callies........4 0 1 3 2 4 3 S. O.E.........3 .0 1 2 3 4 2 Down went the Callies by a score of two goals to nothing at the Athletic Park last night before a crowd of oyer three hundred football enthusiasts. The Overseas did the trick but it must be admitted .they were lucky in having won the toss, as they had a. strong gale behind them in the first half of the game,' during Which period they made their tallies. It was only after three minutes' play at the opening of the jame -that Joyce headed the first goal past Mclntyre, who was well watched by the opposition, and had no possible chance to save. The wind was rather friendly Inclined towardB the Overseas, who kept the play at the Callies' end, and try as they, liked the Scots could make Jittlc headway. Not content with their lead of one goal, the Overseas continued to harass the Scots, whose goalkeeper was again called upon to extend himself, only to be beaten .a littJ^ later with a deceptive shot from Bembridge which he could only partially stop. After a series of exchanges play was transferred to the Overseas end, but the big defence were right on the firing line and saved the situation. The Callies, with determination written on their faces, came right back at Sumner, but they were again driven '. back. Play at this point was not by any manner of means Interesting on account of the gale, although the Callies were fighting hard to reduce the lead. It was quite apparent that the Scots were bent on a purely defensive game, although it must be conceded that in point of combination play they were just a bit better than their redoubtable opponents. The speed of the Scots was \ obviously troubling the Overseas who, however, succeeded in keeping the enemy at bay. The air tight defence of the Scots now held/ the leaders in check. Just towards the close of this period Knight and Linning shone reaplendently in as nice a piece of football as one could wish to see but their efforts were frustrated by the opposing defence who would not yield one iota. Exciting Close On resuming the Callies set to work to wipe out the Overseas lead and after some spirited play in front of Sumner, Tennant sent in a lightning shot which missed by Inches. Marquard Pitching Giants to Victory Again *J- { 4* + 'h Has Won Twelve Straight Games Todate JEFFRIES MAY BE SELECTED REFEREE WOLGAST BUT SLIGHT FAVORITE OVER RIVERS IN 4TH JULV MILL OPPONENTS HAVE AVERAGED 2.5 RUNS AND 6.5 HITS PER GAME Rube Marquard pitched the Giants into the National league pennant last season and apparently is out to repeat. To date the giant left-hander has" won 12 straight games, and lost none. Since the opening of the season manager AIcGraw has worked Marquard every fourth day, and the man who cost the Giants $11,000 and went two years without earning a nickle for the .team has fulfilled every prediction of the lrttle Napoleon. Christy Mathewson says Marquard was useless for two years because he joined the Glanta press-agented as the highest-priced pitcher in earth, and went to the firing line iu response to John T. Brush's request and against McGraw's judgment before he was ripe. He lost his first game and with it his confidence and it required two hard seasons to regain his stride. 'Marquard started as a semi-professional in Cleveland, Ohio, as Richard de Marquis. He was nicknamed 'Rube" Marquard, and it |tMck. His first notable, work was will Indianapolis, for which team he wou the American Association pennant in 1903 and was sold for the record price as the result. "Biggest Swindle in Baseball" Marquard was._referred to as the biggest swindle In baseball," and bis stock valued on a par with a certain yellow product that helped make Messina famous. Today Giant fans call liiiu "Richard the Lion Hearted."  si si year was unbeatable. He established a league record for strikeouts and shared honors with Mathewson. Now he has taken the place beld by "Big Six" for years in the regard of fandom. Marquard.'s great asset is his "smoke." He lias terrific speed which he has learned to control, and with it an 'assortment of curves, such as lefthanders only ever seem to acquire. When iMcGraw was being roasted to a nice brown for keeping Marquard he said, "I'll keeji him because I know he is 'there.' Any youngster with the 'stuff' he has Beeds time. , When he doeB come he will be a world-beater." And Marquard has shown McGraw was right. The one-time failure is the great sensation of baseball today. He commenced right where he left off last fall and has won steadily. He has not pitched any one- or t^yo-hit games nor established any wonderful strikeout records, but nine hits are the most made off him and but once hay he given more than four bases on balls. Marquard Is fortunate in having the Gi.\nts play splendid ball behind him. The team hits and steals bases when he is on the mound, as a glance at the statistical table proves, la 11 games NewvYork has made 81 runs for 106 hits and stolen IS bases,. while their opponents have made 25 runs for 61 hits, Los Angeles, Cal., June 11.-James J. Jeffries may be the tnir| Kaalsen, with me countrymea, members of the Independent club, were boating on the lake during the afternoon, and during a discussion of the relative ability of each member of the party to awijii, Kaalsen bet $10 that he could swim with a 10-pound weight tied to ea'cli footj;^^ '�� The trial wfe; asBt^for dusk, and at that time Kaalsen-'donned a bathing suit and with his companions on shore holding a rope he had fastened around his waist, he set out in the deepest part of the lake to make the attempt. After swimming several strokes with the weights swinging from his ankles he unfastened the" rope from his waist and. struck out once more. He swam a few feet successfully and then suddenly sank. A dozen men besides his companions witnessed the drowning from the shore. The body was recovered by attaches of the Luna park resort who, with the aid of a launch, brought it up with grappling hooks shortly after the man went down. Kaalsen was a miner and 28 years of age. So far as known he has no relatives in this country.
