Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 22, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE TE^ ADDITIONAL SPORT HAVE ANY CINC CAPTURING FLAG TjOSS of Barnes, Benton. Tcsreau �nd Benny Kauff Sadly * Felt New York. .Iftnc 21.-,Wlion the T91S baseball seasoo opened it was figured by a great many erltics-anU by practically all the National league fans that the Giant.s woulil run away vith the pennant in the elder major league. That the McGraw aggregation ivill not do that and never figured to do it, considering the matter from every angle, is quite apparent now, -with Senny Kauff, Rube Benton and .less Harnss in the army and Jeff Tesreau gone to the shipyard, John McGraw wasn't one of those who believed the Giants would have R celebration on their road to another ft-orld's series. He fortified himself 4gainst the possibility of heavy losses when he declined lo be drawn into a ^lan to help other clubs. He knew �hat to send a player or so to another elub -would leave him very badly crip pled when the time came for him to ^art with some of his'eligibles for the *rmy. McGraw now will be forced to al ternate with Jim Thorpe and Joe Wil-hoit In the outfield to fill the place left Tactnt by Benny iCaufr. unless the unbeltevable happens and Dave Robertson takes his place in the lineup again. In that evpnt Uoss Young probably would be shifted to centre field, leaving Dave to patrol his old poBttlOD in right field. the two others Thorpe undoubtedly Is the better man. either against right or left hand pitching. Alter experimenting with Wilhoit when right handers are opposing the Giants McGraw probably will decide to give Thorpe the thorough trial he so richly deeerves. It may be, even, that Thorpe will perform creditably tnough to till the shoe of Kauff, Ban B. Thinks Ball Players Are Productive Ch!c�Bo, June 21.-President Ban Johnson, of the American League, said to-day that he could not understand General Crowder's statement that baseball was nonproductive, as the two major leagues, he said, will deliver to the government a war tax reaching nearly $300,000. "The ball players, umpires, club stockholders and 'officials have bought more than $8,000,000 worth of Liberty Bonds and have subscribed thousands upon thousands of dollars to the Red Cross and other war charities," President Johnson said. "Where Is there another class of tnen earning as much for the Government?'' SISLER IS READY FOR COBB'S SHOES Sreat St. Louis Slugger Can Field Any Position on the Team The New Order. AVashington, June 21.-New regulations issued to draft boards today by Provost Marshal General Crowder to govern application of the work or fight order, do not rule speeiticnll}-upou the status of professional baseball players or other classes which may be affected, but emphasise the section of the order placing games and sports among the occupations classed as nou-useJul. In an oral statement announcing the regulations, officials General Crower's office said "at present." the occupation of a baseball player is regarded as non-productive but that until a case has been appaaled from a local board there would oe no ruling on the subject. Y TRAINING Came From Cantonment Without Training and Shut Out the Cardinals i ' By Jack Valeck. New Tork-Ty Cobb U going on 32 >ears of age. Some of these fine days Ty wlil relinquish hia throne as the peer of baseball players, lor Old Pop Time gets all of 'em sooner or later. And when the Georgia Peach ceases to reign as pe�r of all major league players, both in the field and at the box office, who is going to step In and fill his shoes? The answer depends largely upon where you ask the question, but if you happen to' be in St, Louis It will he unanimous for George Sisler. Has''Qualifications. Sisler, mora than any other player In either major leagues to-day, bears the earmarks of the one player qualified to ascend to the throne of King Tyrus in,seasons to come. St. Louis fans are not alone in making their olaims, tor wherever Sisler displays his wares the bugs admit that he Is a rare gem on the ball field. Sisler has qualifications as an all-around baseball player that Cobb can not boast of. for ha can play practically any position aside from third �^ase or behind the bat. Being left-handed. Sisler would not be at home on third base, nor would he be in his element as a catcher. But be can play any other infield or outfield position and the world knows he can pitch. Fielder Jones made an infielder of Staler rather than to pitch him, for his �wonderful ability as a fielder, batsman and base runner makes it Imperative that the Browns have him In the lineup every day. As a pitcher ha would be available but twice a week, and the Browns would lose much of his valuable li^tting. So far this season SUler Is showing to better advantage than ever before. It isn't that the batting or base-running figures have anything to do with it. He is simply a greater ball player than ever, and he shows it in his movements. Where can you find a more promising candidate for the crown of King Cobb? It can't be done, eteve. It can't bo done. BECORDS FOR THE HAWAIIANS. ' Du� Kahanamoku Sets New World's Mark, at ,110 Yards. Alameda, Cal., June 15.-Honolulu wlmmers to-day established three new world's Bwlmming records Jo. various .distance, according to offi. clals ot.tho meeting held under the ausplces.of that organization. Duke kahanamoku, world's champion, broke the former record for HO (ards by making the distanco In 1.01 �5.

CO-yard backstroke In 38 2-5 seconds, breaking the former ' record "of "42' secclji^i held by CiartocjB Daniel!.' New York, June 21.-The benefits of athletic training soldiers are received in training camps as well as demonstrated by an occtrrence in Brooklyn recently when Lieut, Leon Cadore pitched his first and only game of the season, shutting out the hard-hltling cardinals. Cadore, last year a promising youngster with the Brooklyn club, hadn't appeared this year in a baseball uniform. He was taken in the draft early-among the first to be classified and called from the big league stardom. The trainings^he had received didn't come to him Nyough an expensive stay at a southern resort. He Ironed the kinks out of his muscles in Uncle, Sam's big camps. His accomplishment speaks better than words of what the army is doing for the young men of this country. Cadore really pitched a better game than any he appeared in a year ago. In connection with Cadore's appearance against the Cardinals, it is stated by the National league that hereafter no player who Is in the army will he permitted to return to the game without having first obtained the written consent of his commanding officer. T^ie attitude taken by the magnates is that; In case of an accident to a player on leave from camp, the inagnate might be held responsible tor Injury to a soldier. After September 1, they decided, no player will be permitted to take part in a scheduled contest, proTlded he is in the army. .Tack Hendricks recently complained against an action of the Dallas club of the Teras league when It permitted Marvin Goodwin, (Cardinal pitcher, to hurl a game for the Dallas team. Goodwin's name was the means of crowding the hall park that afternoon. He is not" a member of the Dallas club. BOOSTS HUNTING, FISHING.
