The Query Sporting Kditor, Winnipeg Free Pres^, Winnipeg, Van: - Dear Sir,-ICindlJ' give me the correct ruling on tho following. Curling. My third man is playing' his stone and It comes.Into the rings and raises ono of my opponents rocks Irom the third ring towards the tee. My opponent's lead Jumps in and sweeps their third raised rock. I maintained: Firstly that'the lead had no bu.sinoss in the ring that ho should' retire to the hog line after sweeping or coming up 'their rocks. Secondly, that it tho leads and seconds are allowed over the hog line that-th'oy can not sweep in the rings after their own stone has ceased to run or 6asi crossed the sweeping line. That is that their skip or third man was tho only ono entitled to tweop their raised rock Ifl this case. As this caused Bonio cou-Biderablo discussion and we could find no point to cover in tho Royal Caled. Rules I wifill that you woiiUl give us the correct ruling�is vraollaod In Winnipeg.  Youra truly. The Reply ' Dear Sir,-In answer to your query re curling would say that thore Is really no rule at present In the Manitoba curling laws that prohibits a load from sweeping such a rook but It is the general rule for llievskip or third player .to tako charge ot a rock like tho ono you mention. It is generally understood that the lead and second hiis no business in tho rings but this rulo Is not lived up to very strictly these days and IJiavo seen In- sovoraj oci oaslQn"^ in WJimlpog, whore a skip who is not ioned party, when-Miss Geneva Mis-ener entertained the Waunelta Soc- i iety ot the University at a Colonial ' dance. All the guests were dressed la ' old fashioned style with powdered  hair, and the dances consisted ot tha graceful dances of our grandmothers' i days, the minuet, Sir Roger de Cove� : ley and others. Tho novelty ot the ; dance appealed to everyone and tha i evewing was a truly delightful one. j Friday, March Ist, la a busy day ' In University athletics. The Varsity � hockey team Is making a trip to Ver-mllioa to play the team ot the Vermilion School ot Agriculture on the occasion ot the Aggies' Annual Alumni meeting which Is to take place on that day. On the same day, the Cam-rose Normal School Girls' Uasketball team is paying a visit to the University and a doubleheader la to be played In the Varsity Gym Friday nljs^t, Camro/e vs. Varsity and a game by tho Varsity Boys' House League. After the games, the visitors are to ba entertained in Athabasca Hall. Capt. J. M. MacEachran, formerly professor of Philosophy In ..the University,-who went overseas as Paymaster ot the 196th Battalion and subsequently was paynlaster of the Young Soldiers' Battalion at Bramshott, has gone to Prance and is to bo attached as paymaster to an artillery unit. -Major H. J. MacLeod, lecturer In in tho first game of the year between Stirling and Raymond the Stirling hii.iklos maintained their untarnished record and brought their old time rivals to defeat on their own floor. It was a great game wiUi a nip and tuck battle in tbo first half and Raymond in tfto lead by four points. Meldrum's shooting Jn this half was tho feature for the visitors, tho big boy negotiating four pretty field baskets and shooting fouls with a dead eyo for ten more points, with Burr and Nal-der coming in with a ringer apiece and playing great combination. Spack-man was oven up with his rival with the same number of field baskets, but missed several foul throws. Brandley and "Jumbo" Mickelson both did dam-ago by a basket apiece. The second half was a whirlwind with Stirling on their favorite south basket. In this half the checking ot tho Stirling guards, Mickelson and Ostlund, was a feature, holding their opposition down to a,minimum ot field counters. Nalder played a good game at centre, beating thfe big Stirling centre �at the jump quite a number of times, which is sure some jumping and holdlngj his man to three baskets and getting three himself. Buhler held Vern Spackman to tour baskets in the first half but he got away for seven the last half by several open shots. When the fjnal whistle blew Stirling had the big end ot the score ot 4S to 35. Red McKIlIop handled the whistle to the entire satisfaction of all, which is saying something. The only dissension .was a voice from a gentlewoman from KIpp who seemed to think the boys were held too technically to rules, but the warriors ou both sides made tho fouls, and Geordie called "'tJ! ^'!,fw ^^'l^Jfn^^w'ln^H ,.,r Eloctrlcal Engineering at ^he Univer-rhe junior game was a fast and fur-|g^y ^^^^^^ enlisting, who went over- Lethbrldgo, March 2.   � Dear Editor    The papers say ' , *  � That Ad Day �  � And Ray Knight Are to manage The big stampede ' �  � Next July  * * And that there will be V � * Atternoou and evening programs � �  And what I want To know is It this hero stampede � '   Is going to be . a  * A continuous performance.

For Stirling Vic Spackman secured . five baskets, with Addler, Mickelson and Anderson each adding some counters. The guarding on both sides was close. Stirling missed many chances on^ foul throws.
