Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 22, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta SHf unlay. June 22, TUB LETITkRIDGE DAILY HERALD MERHY OC SOUL- TMAT'S ME Remarks on the "Stavordale" The Greatest Thing By WALT MASON The orator shrieks and clamors, and kicks up .1 lot of dust, and iarrups tnd whacks and hammers the weary old sinful Trust; the congressman chirps ind chatters, pursuing his dream of fame; but there's only one thing that mat- ters, and that is the baseball game. The pessimist rails and wrangles, and takes up a lot of room, and tells, in a voice that jangles, his view of the nation's doom; we shy at his why and wherefore, and balk at his theories lame; for there's only one thing we care for, and that is the baseball game. The rakers of muck arc busy, with shovels and spades and screens, a-dishing, up stuff, that's dizn in the popular magazines, these fellows arc ever present with stones of graft and shame, and there's only one thing that's pleasant, and tfiat is the base- ball game. Some people arc in a passion, and have been, for many weeks, because the decrees of fashion make women look much like freaks; why worry about the dress of the frivolous modern dame? There's only one, thing i pressuc, and that is the baseball game v Oeorire Ad.rcv One cannot holp thinking 'that the lovom erf. out-door sports who aro stop- ping away from tho Athletic Park on Tuesday iilg'hti, are miming a great deal hi tho way of excitement.

They certainly got It, but the admirers of the Engllah team were doomed to disappointment, whllo on the other hand 'the followers of the Overseas were jubilant that their favorite, were able to maintain their unbeaten record, for the final result was three goals-to one, in of the Overseas. I The storj of the game is soon told The Englishmen were unusuall) confident that on this occasion they would prove the'Winners, while the Over- seas were determined that they would fight to the end to keep -their flag flying_at the top of the league ladder The S.

At this stage of the game it may be interesting for a moment to review- the City Longile games played so far this season.

MeMurtle nnd Glen were the i'cornrs of the Callies' two goals. The Sons have scored four goals antl. have had'seven registered against them.-; Parser, with two to his credit, .tops'the t'hglisli scorers, Desl- vvlck. and.
