Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 27, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta �.ll�MMW�l'is. Tlio s|k>ctn-\nvH nro letting mi every gnnr.)

They want, to Hvn tho homo tonm defeated because they hnvo sottv money upon the visitors. That is the extent of their patriot Ism. There Is nothing thnt will so '.Rnmo rpilekly put the baseball business to tlw� Imd, nml it has si ailed well, ton, ns the liet ting. At present you see Cnlgnrians iM'tting against tho homo ton in.

FOOTIIA1.1. fxjthhrldgo Mnclcod ... Tabor ...... I.KAMI'10 STANDING. V r wan^v lnrrosslsts In the Kdmonton- t'algnr.v game. Considering that Slrnihrnmi had defeated lOdmontoii 2 and Mint Cnlgnry had a bunch of tooted stars it. looked like a sure thing for Calgary. Hut It was not. so to bo. On their own grounds, after moking a runawny race of it for the flivl I wo quarters, the homotoam fndod nwny. allowing �the Northern -ers to win S-.Y Playing with Kdnionton against the l'liie Lake Cricknt Club, A. (1. formerly of l.cthbridgc batted IM runs and at bowling took throe wicket c for .'Ml runs, and is credited with four maidens. Kdmonton won the HASH OX HALLS. "Hasss on balls cans more disns -lor to a club than almost, any other form of misplay. More games are won and lost through tho issuing of lion i'.xou'i�l 'in the rarest, of Instances "The extra bulls allowed ti pitcher under I he rules' can be used by him to great advantage In trick plays, but he must be' careful not to lie loo lilwrnl with lliein nnd regard I'hcm as a surplus ,to be handed out ninny time. That's what somo pHchers np-ponr to m�iy l.o hitting the pitcher imrlicularly hard nnd Ihe occasion may come when, with men on bases nnd the score close, it is wise to pass limn, but It is always taking a long chonrp, for the next holler Is likely to clout tho ball and score, the runs of which tho other side ves afraid. "Discussions as to whether baseball has advanced in the Inst decade lends me to think that one point in the argument bus Iwen overlooked. That tho game of toduy is more sci passes to opposing j t.Mlini. lmui l(,, ,,. nft,.pn >voin.g ttgo |h>opl*i civtlit. Not until the pitchers ,, K,.IMM.nllv ,cknowled|reil, but as t) Tho hitherto despised Maoleod football tonm put a serious crimp in tho ambitions if the Tabor team on Friday. Fresh from their great stuml against the Maple I-oafs, the men of the east felt roniidont. of an easy victory, hut Macleod proved stronger nt home thnn abroad and took the measure of rhe visitors by H-O. The pin:1 was played in a heavy rain which preelud.^l nny fast play. Tho Maple lA-nfs go to Macleod on Momlny, Dominion Day, to piny the football team of the Kooky town. KmboMonod with their success ag - learn that 'lour halls' is to lie lival-ed as capital and not to lui wasted until llioy hav(> n striko or two on the Imtsmen, v ill thoi>> l>e fewer games lost through loose pitching." This was the opinion given by Jus. Mc.Meer, leader of the St. l/ouis Krouns, tnilenders of Ihe American len�ilt>, as expressisl in an intorxiow recently. "Modern baseball is concent rot-d in the pitcher," he snys, "nnd a base on litili.s is nn evil that ought to be curublc, but persists in clinging to the game. How mnny a Imd innings has singled with that base on balls, and how mnny games huve boon won and lost through it! J hnvo boon told that the |>orcontngi; of runners who score alter having received a pass is about one in four. At limes I have been inclined to believe that nil scor ed, especially when one of my pitchers if sued it. "The nrt of pitching hns boon .e-duced twndays. change 1I10 whole us |>ei-t of the game and pull victory out of apparent defeat. This is due to the fact that greater ntlenlicn is paid now to the finer details of play thnn Usui to ho the case. Il is to Ihe team that can crystali/e Into a habit this ntteutlin to the liner points of the Kline that w II finally win out Other clubs may bo its equal or even superior in general piny, but thcte.imi lhat pays strict attention to the fin or points of the game is the loam that wins." CLUH wscussks publicity. The .tune monthly meeting of the 25,000 Club was well attended on Friday evening. Owing to tho absence of President Magrath nnd Vice President Bowman. Mayor Clnlbrnlth was voted to the chair. \ A communicntlnn wus read from tho city secretary-treasurer saying that the city had decided to curry on the pubMclly work for the balance of tho year, and Invited the Club to appoint a member to confer with tho Civic Publicity' Committee. The Club's publicity eoiinwlssionor, W.W. i'wIii, wus appointed. Messrs. llrridoi'Ron nnd Peterson submitted a plnn of publicity inwhich ilium rated folders should be placed in holders in public nhices so thnt the trnveiling public could help themselves, nnd that people might on  lose them in lellors. The estimated list of folders in holders fn\ was $60.00. D. King suggested thnt some of the si.CRM) pamphlets the city bad or-lored be placed at the disposal of the public thnt they may send them lo |N>oplc likely to lie Interested. Secretary Kakin having explained that the report of the Hoard of Trade and 2.Y.000 Club joint committee had not heon submitted to the Council because of the. Council's notion as stated above, W. W. Irwin moved that the 25.000 Club offer two prizes of $50 ami $2."i for the best scheme of publicity. This motion curried.
