Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 15, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX J,HK LKTHBIIIDGK DAILY HERALD SATURDAY, JUNK 15, lOlfi ft �I '^RRINGING UP FATHER'  By G. McManus BASEBALL BOXING RACING SPORT HOCKEY GOLF BOWLING Forty Niners May Revive Lacrosse -- -.;.- -- May Play Game for the Red Cross The success of the Old Timers base-1 seen a good old-fashioned game of la-ball team lias stirred memories in the ' rrcsse. and it is thought they would breasts of lacrosse players in the 1 turn out in force, especially if they city who crossed the Jlissouri back j In '40. and they're talking of staging ' a game for the benefit of-tU^ Red; Cross or some other war fund if enough gutted sticks can be gathered together in one place Co allow for the resurrection of the great Canadian game. Herb Skeith. Billy Nelson, Judge .lackson and some more of tha Maers got together yesterday, and while fanning over hard fought- battles on the Iftcrosse field down in Old Cntaria they suggested that such a same be played. The Forty Niners ieclare they can gather together lU players who can lick anything in this neck of the woods. They would like i.0 go up against some of the younger bloods if there are am' in the city who know how to handle a stick, but If not, it is thought that a couple of dozen old players can be found, and teams, chosen so that a game could be staged. It is eight years since Lethbridge jaw a game of lacrosse. That's a long time. Besides there are hundreds of poopla in the city who have never saw a chance, to .have some fun at tlie, expense of the fat parties who wbuid .be playhig the leading roles on the Held. We are especially asked to announce that the. Forty Niners have choson H. .\. McKillop as goalkeeper. That settles it. The main trouljle will bo tQ get enough sticks, so the request is made that all who ha�e sticks that they could lend for the game bring them to the store of W. J. Nelson as soon as possible. It' is possible the game may be staged next Wednesday night as the Forty Niners declare practice would ruin them. Camouflage RESULTS P. C. INTERNATIONAL, Aberdeen 5. 11. 1; Pbrlland 0. 7. 2.

Jit kih 2 ' t  � Was streaking it honie �  t _ WUU high spirits It was with rather mixed feelings thdt tread the articles on Gnihes of GoU lii The Herald last week fron� the pen- of the late Sir Walter C, Sin'pson, lArt, anil I hon= van will pardon .a liltl-.i dogre.^sion on my part this week from my usual golf notes. Is a ball on the game, both players play better golf. Of course If the scoitch i)layer Is taking out a beginner to give him u few hints on the game that Is different, but in a friendly game the small stake makes all the difference in the play as each player has to play his best if ho is going to win,-provided the handicap is fairly adjusted, and that Is what a player should always aim at-to play his beat and try to Improve his game. �trbw pleased 1 was to reaH what Sir W�lter wrote on the game. It took me back to ray early golfing days also to the days of my boyhobrt, and brought home very near to^ me out here In Western Canada for I was personally acquainted with him for nearly seven ye'ai^s" prior to. and up to the time of his death and have discussed as well as played the game with him many many times. He was one of the best of sportsmen, and it was a great pleasure to meet him. Me lived within l",^ miles of my home and was Hon. President and Captain, respectively, of the first two golf Clubs that I \yas connected with. He was acknowledged b.v the leading golfers to be one of the best authorities on the game, and had published a very fine book, which was recoi?-nized as a standard work. He also wrote the weekly golf column in one of the leading dally papers published in Edinburgh. Besides, his opinion on new golf clubs was much sought for by the leading club-makers, as worth much to them. What he said went, and was always mentioned when the new club was put in the market. For a year or two before he died he was unable to try out of the clubs sent him, and several of my club mates, also myself, wore asked to play with them tor a week or two and give our opinion as to their playing qualities. It is vei-y noticeable In the article written by him that he had some rathef strange and peculiar viowa on the game, yet 1 have never met any player who was more correct in playing according to the 'rule. The etiquette of the game was a serious thing M-ith him and he would at once check anyone, no matter wlio the player was, if he broke away from the rules. He played for the love of the game, and has told mo often it was practically no game at all If not played according to rule, a view with which I entirely agree.' Beginners are too apt to think they should play and do just whatever they like, hut It Is very bad form and would not be toler ated on any first class course or amongst first class players. Before finishing. 1 would just like to say, at the same time regretting having to mention It. that I have heard' ae\icral cj)niplnlnts l.itely ot members who have been playing, and ignoring the rules ot the etiquette of the game. It Is poor sportsmanship to drive Into players In fropt of you who are keeping their place on the course, although perhaps not going at breakneck pace or to play on a putting green when other players are holing out, slniply because they may bo carefully studying the lino ot putt. 1 sincerely hope that mehiberB will give this their serious consideration, for If not stopped, 1 am rather afraid some one is going to be \hurt. A blow on the head from a hard-hit golf ball is a nasty and dangerous thing. 1 know that from experience, as 1 was nearly laid out in the first competition that ever I took part In. Of course, It was an accident, but had it been one incli, lower down where It hit me, accident or no accident, I am afraid I would have finished my golfing career and I would not havo been able to write any notes on golf or any other sport. So I would warn the members to be more careful In the future. One does not want to read In the papers ot any coroner's Inquest being held through accident on the golf course. He was never a brilliant player, the state/or his health being against him, but what he did not know about the game was hardly worth knowing. Still he did enjoy a round. About winning prizes he cared very little, and seemed to derive more pleasure from donating them to the clubs he was connected with. He presented the club championship prizes (Scratch) to the two local clubs, one a massive solid silver cup of a most unique do-Hlgii, the other a solid.silver golf ball mounted with gold flguresi He designed all his ov;n prizes and had them made by one ot the leading jewellers in Edinburgh. H(\ also gave several gold medals for nilnor computltionH. One prize he gave was for a pne-cliib competition. Competitors had to sf rf and play through to the finish wit, the same club, but were allowed to use whatever one they chosi.. 'PLAY THE GAME" BOYS, PAYS IN THE END. Next week I hope to say something on the great players 1 have seen. DAVE HUM 10.

KEEL Sole Agent 318 Fifth Street South Once I was arranging with hira about a handicap competition when he said: "I really think all competitors should be played from scratch," and when 1 said that every member could not be a scratch player, ho admitted that, but added he did not consider it any honor to win a prize unless It was won from scratch. The exBc'utlvo o� the local Aquatic Club are looking forward to a very enjoyable and prosperous season. The water has reached the club house and is now high enough for boating and swimming; The. official opening ot the club house takes place on Wod-(| nesday the 19th, and in the evening at eight o'clock the .mnual mooting will be hold when the officers for 1918 will be elected. An invitation is extended to non-members to come to the club,house on Wednesday and to attend the annual meeting in the evening.  The Aquatic club Is fortunate in having splendid accommodation for boating and swimming and the officers believe, when the public Is better acquainted with the facilities offered many will 'become associated 'With th6 club and participate in the enjoyment to be obtained at'the lakja; there are the two splendid dressing rooms, fresh wator, lockers and aU.canvenl^nces. and the club grounds are IdeaP for picnic parties. The work ot the city commissioners at the lake this year has not been In vain. The weedg are now under control and there has been an Immense volume ot clean fresh water which hiis made the lake an ideal place tor swimming. The cxecutivo anticipate that this department ot the club will be well patronized this season, and a large float wlir be anchored off the boat house for the accommodation ot the bathers. A number of good second-hand canoes are to be disposed of at a reason-able price, and the secretary, Mr. IR. Andrew Smith will be pleased to show them to anyone interested. Come out to the club house on Wednesday and look it over. The mombora'will see you are entertained. A. C. Hardy, of Brockvlllo, Ont., sold a Holsteln bull calt tor $106,000 to B. A.
