It is hardly to be expected that they should do so. Yet by playing their own game they might get a bettor shot than they thought was possible. As Dominion Day is so near at hand, and the members of the club i will be taking iiart in the most important event o:' tho^iBason. 1 will confine my remarks tlus week to giving a little advice, to intending competitors. Turin vs Lethbrldge tonight. Fans in the city and from the surrounding district are expected to be out In force tonight to give the Lethbrldge team the once over in its first game with an outside team this year. The locals are going to see if they have a team, Scott and O'Connor, the Banker battery, will be on deck to do the heavy work, and a strong line-up has been picked for the other positions, so that the locals should be able to hold the heavy sluggers from the Turin district. An admission charge of two bits will bs made in order to provide the locals with the necessary baseball paraphernalia and tc put the grounds in shape for future patriotic games. The game will start at 6.45. NO DEMPSEY-FULTON BOUT AT PHILADELPHIA Baltimore. June 28.-Promoters of the proposed liglit between Jaclc Dempsey and Fred Fulton will not try to arrange for an eight round bout in Philadelphia or Jersey City, where such limited fights are permitted.

STANDARD GARi^GE THIRD STREET SOUTH THE BEST REPAIR HOUSE IN SOUTHER BERTA 1 think most of ilie players will agree with me that In all competitions, whether of minor or greater importance, they feel_ a certain amount of strain on the nerves, especially with young players. So much so. sometimes, that it affects their usual gatne. and they are apt to fall down rather badly; and if you ask them whei! tJiey have lininiicd what score they have made, so many of them will tell you they have played poorly, in tact a very common expression used is that they have played a "rotten" gamr. and are perhaps feeling a little sore and disgusted with themselves. In tlicir own minds they are rather pu:;z!ed to know why they did not play as well as tliey did the day before, when there was no competi-tioii. There may he several reasons to account for their failure, but one of the chief causes of thoir falling down, just at the time they want to do so well. Is that tliey start In the competition with the intention of making a score which may be a little beyond them, the result being that instead of being better, they are worse than usual. My advice to all beginners taking part in competitions is to start with the determination to play your usual game, nothing more. Don't try to do anything out of your ordinary game. Study every shot carefully, and don't worry about what your partner does; ho may drive a longer ball from the tee, may even hit a belter second than you are able to do, still you niay find when you reach the green that you are there in the same number of strokes as he is. Don't risk trying for a long shot with a brassy, when the club you should use is a mid driving iron, or play a mashie when you should use a light iron. If you come a cropper at one hole and almost take double figures, try to forget It. You have a big handicap and it is expected that you will fall down on several holes; otherwise the handicapping committee will not treat you so liberally. Golf Is a peculiar and sometimes tantalizing game. You may .start oft well, and go along swimmingly for almost the first rotmd. and may begin to think that you are the one nmn for the prize, perhap.s get a little- jurit a little-over confident; then you meet trouble and when you finish find out-well, that .vou have not won-or you may have the opposite experience, begin badly and then finish so well that you come out on top, I have had that experience several limes during my golfing career. The conclusion 1 have come to regarding winncrt; ot competitions is that the player who can command his temper and take the bad strokes along with the gooil williout worrying. Is tlie man who will come out on top five times out ot six. Ot course you cannot expect to win every time you play in a competition. 'Honors must go round." There is a very common exiiression used by many goiters,- and a true one, 1 think-that if it is your day on you will win no matter what happens. I remember at the first Open Championsiiip I had the pleasuio ot being present at in Scotland, which Braid won (his t.irsl championship.) On the afternoon of the first day I was speaking to several ot the professionals who had finished their second rounds, and asked Willie Vernie (an ex-champion), who he thouglit was likely to win, and his answer was, 'Well, there are ajjolit half a dozen players .-'who can AviaV but it will depend on whote day it*ia." BAKER STAGES A REAL COIBACK Never Hit the Bali So Hard-Playing More Consistently Tlian Ever Don't be discouraged if you have one or two bad holes; stick to it: you may come out all right at the finish. IT MAY BE YOUR DAY." The greens committee hope to have the course in good shape, and It favored with nice weather, good scores should be returned. I have heard whispers of several dark horses showing up. Let them come, it's all in the game. A -word to the ladies to get right on their game. I am not giving any secret away when I toll them a ladies' competition has been arranged for Thursday, July 4th, and there Is a nice piece of cut glass for the winner besides other- prlzou.

Sullivan. New York.-Who was it that Invented that sporting axiom, They never come back?^' ,The one who originated It didn't have Home Run Baker ot the Yankees in mind, that's a cinch. For the past two years, in tact, ever since he joined tlio New York club. J, Franklin has been playing a very ordinary game of baseball. This season he has taken on a now lease of lite and is not only hilling in a manner that has practically placed him at the head of both major Icagitos in baiting, but he Is fielding his position at third the best that any player in the country is covering the difficult corner. Baker is even doing belter than ha did when lie was one of the .'qnartel that formed the .Vthletics' famous $100,000 Infield. "I felt last year that I was .slipping," said Baker the other day, "So I resolved to work harder than ever before to keep In shape during the offseason. 1 did this by adopting a careful system of exercise that kept superfluous flesh from accumulating. When 1 reported at .Macon I was in the best shape that I over rejiorted to any club In the south, I have worked hard and conscientiously in practise, and if I have succeeded in rounding into condition so that I can play my best and am pleasing New York fans, 1 am more than pleased." No Need to Worry About "Sub." Baker's showing this spring has surprised oven the shrewd new Yankee leader, .Miller Muggins. He expected to see a veteran who was on the down grade, but when he got a line on his real form after a few days' practice he felt satisfied that he wouldn't have to worry about securing a successor for Baker at third this season or for many seasons to come. Baker is now in there every day doing all sorts of stunts that attract attention. For Instance, in the opening game at Cliicago he made a fielding play that saved the game for the Yankees. His playing has been, the most consistent of any player on the club CONCILIATION BOARD, Ottawa, Juno 28,-The minister of labor has established a board of conciliation to deal witli the dispute, between the Hrltisli Columbia Eloclrii; Railway Company and Its electrical workers. Should you have one, or even two, bad holes, don't worry too much, and don't try 10 make up at the next one for what you have already lost; don't strain yourself to gel four when five Is good enough. You may get four without any extra effort, I have seen such a thing happen very often, and no one Avas more surprised than the player liTftiBelf. It you will only think over the game tor a little and figure out what your average round Ih-not your best round-and try to play as near as you can to it, I am confident you won't be-far out ot place in the prize list* Remember you were expected to make mistakes, that was taken into consideration when the handicaji was xirawn up. The scratch player Is the one who cannot afford to make any mistakes. At tho same time, he is liable to do so, and Hhould iho play what might appear to you a remarkable shot, don't you attempt tho same thing, but keep to your own game- what you know you can do.

Md.. March 13. l.SSti, which makes -hlni 32 years of age. Baker had a great fondness for baseball from his kid days, so it was not surprising that at 20 years of ago he jttttii)ed with joy when lie received an offer to play with the Rlsley (Md.) semi-pro team. Herzog Made Third-Sacker of Him. Who do you think played with him where he joined tho Cambridge. .Md.. team'.' It was Charlie Herzog. the fighting infieUler. now of the Braves. Baker gives Herzog credit tor making a third l)ueeman out of h!in. Reading ot the Trl-Slate league next signed up .1.

Although Baker didn't do any groat playing tor tho Yanks while Bill Donovan was manager, batting .2(19 and fielding .940 In 191G. and hitting .282 and fielding .94!) laiit year, here's what Bill says of the groat star: "He's tho hardest hitting player in tlio bus.ness. and any pitcher who has a hunch that lie's going to hind on the ball should tall flat on hi.s lace. 1 wouldn't want to get in the way of one of his lino drives for all the money in the world. The harder you throw the ball the farther he hits it.' Baker's slump in 1916 was largely duo to his layoff in 1915, owing to a disagreement with the Athletics, It seems that nearly all ot the Philadelphia players were rlddon hard after poor shtiwing In tho world series against the Uraves in 1914, when they lost four straight. Tho Yankees, it is said, paid Mack Jl.'i.pOO for tho services of the disgruntled star, and it has taken him two seasons to return to his old-time form. AUTO TIRES OF ALL SIZES .
