Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - March 6, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta WEDNESDAY, MARCH 6, 1018 TIIE LETIIBRinfiE DAILY HERALD  PAGE THREE "BRINGING UP FATHER" - - - ' - - - - By G. McManus in* ror Tait-Allison to Swap Blows ->- -*- ->- Lightweights Now Matched Bout Set for Thursday, March 14th Here-Waterloo Boy After Scalp of Canadian Champion-Best Lightweight . Match Ever Carded for Lethbridge-Tait on Way Clonic Tait, Canadian lightweight champion and Neal Allison of Waterloo, Iowa, one of the best mitt artists in the lightweight cliveion In the middle western states, will swap punches for ten rounds at the Majestic on the evening of March 14th, a week from tomorrow night and the multitude of fight fans in Southern Alberta will be treated to a fistic exhibition that will be a fitting climax to a great series of winter entertainments. This looks like the last big match of the winter season, for with the spring opening the padded gloves will be laid away for some moons. The fans are all set for this match. They know Tait. They have seen him in action. He is the Canadian champion and he has been learning a lot about handling his hands In the ring since he annexed the championship at, Medicine Hat last summer at the expense of Johnny O'Leary. As for Allison, he comes here with the stamp of approval of Charlie Cave, who told Lethbridge fans what to expect in Phil Harrison. Cave lias nothing too good to say about Allison. Charles Hitchcock, manager of the Business Men's Athletic Club Of Watarloo is also an Allison backer. He expects Tait will meet his Waterloo at the hands of the Waterloo youngster. And the mere fact that All/son has intimated his strong desire to meet Phil Bloom or any other good lightweight who could be secured in Lethbridge is good enough evidence for the fans of these parts that the lowan is a youngster to be reckoned with. Both are young, and it will be youth meeting youth. Allison has every intention of taking the measure of the Canadian champion. It will help him, he says, along the rocky road to the comfortable niche now occupied by Benny Leonard. This will be the first time In the history of Lethbridge that two lightweights of real calibre and reputations have ever tangled here. And not one of the hundreds of ring followers scattered over the south country will miss It. Thursday the 14th will be a big day for the fans. / Tait already has his transportation and is on his way here from Winnipeg. Allison and his manager are due to arrive the latter end of the week. THREE-HEAT PLAN STAR THIS YEAR Rube Marquard and Chief Bender Expected to Deliver in Top Shape Two old-time pitchers, as pttchors (ro, may bo the bright shining lights of the National league this season If last year's performances have 'anything to do with it. Brooklyn claims ono of them, Rube Marquard, famous as the $13,000 beauty, who was transformed Into said beauty from a $13,000 lemon by Wil-bort. Robinson at New York and who was believed about through a oouplo d� years ago when McGraw sent him to Brooklyn. The other is Chief Bender, since 1914 considered a member of the well-known Hasbeon club, whose sterling work laat year redeemed him and makes him a candidate for premier honors with the Phillies this season. The work of Marquard and Bender In 1917 Was one of the big surprises In the National league. Marquard was ono of the most effective pitchers in the league. His mound work was tho best since 1912, when ho won 19 straight games. When Bender first appeared on tho Phillies' field last year It was easy to see lie was a different pitcher from the man who had had such a bad season in 11)16. He showed the results of training and exercise during the winter. When he rounded into pitching form ho proved the Bender of old. one of tho hardest men in the league to hit. With Alexander, Rixey and Lavender gone from the Phillies, it looks its though Bender will have to assume tho role of star pitcher for Aloran'-n team. Robinson has, lost Sherry Smith ar.d Cadore from his battery staff and Marquard will probably be called upon to assume the premier position there. GREB MAULS F. DILLON Toledo, Ohio, March 4. Frank Dillon, oE Minneapolis, took a severq heating at the hands of Harry Grcb of Pittsburg, in their 12 round, no decision bout hero tonight.

Philadelphia Falls Into Line Philadelphia has declared itself for the three-heat plan at. Belmont park, where its second Grand Circuit meeting will be held in August, while Hartford, the senior member of the circuit, came "over the top" with a clash by 'announcing' that its entire program, with the exception of the free-for-all trot and 2 and 3 year old races, will be on the three-heat plan, tho exceptions being mile heats, two in three. The Connecticut Fair association has gone "a step farther by restoring tho Charter Oak purse to in original value of $10,000 and giving it fur 2:12 trot-tors.

HURLEY BILL PASSES i PoNTIN'UEII VV.iiM KltoNT PaORI Trenton, N. J., Mar. 5.-Tho Hurley boxing bill, which permits 8-round bouts in New Jersey, with 8-ouuco gloves, under the supervision of a commission, was signed today by Governor Edge. The new law provides that bouts must not ba held in any place where liquor is Bold. ter organized bcIh-'i.b than that province, so they writ in a position to deal with re-trainini; or re-education of the soldiers in a .systematic way. Tho work started in Alberta in con- i noction with the special courses for the soldiers in the convalescent lips-pitals had been copied in the rest of Canada, but, whcivas in other places the education given was of a haphazard character, the courses provided in Alberta were relative to tho course of education the man would take when he left the institution and began to prepare himself for iiis occupation in life. 400 Soldiers Re-tralning At the present time there were some 100 men receiving training under their re-educational scheme. .Mr. Boyle said lie war. not there to boast, of anything lie had done or the government had dime, hut when criticism was offered, when it was suggested that the government was not doing its full duty with respect to the returned soldiers, and the war problem? being raised in tin1 Dominion, he thought it was only lair to the government and the people of the province that ho should occaay the time of the House and explain what was actually being done on beh:ilf of rite returned men. "I leave it to tho public to judge whether or not we have done our duty," was the minister's comment. It was the onl> province where a sound system oi technical education was part of the government program, and it was only where they had such a system that the plans for re-education ami training of the soldiers could be carried out to a final conclusion. Wants Provincial Control W. M. Davidson. Calgary, speaking on the question what they should do with their natural resources argued for them being administered directly by Uio people, an administration which would not. only be of service in connection with the settlement of the soldiers, but would aid more rapidly in their development. Mr. Davidson advocated the aequiring of the large j tracts of untitled land for the settle-j ment of the soldiers, and said he thought t'.ie greatest slacker was the man who owned large areas of land, and was doing nothing to develop them. Seconds Ross' Plan He urged the appointment of a commission to investigate their natural resources in salt, the marketing of coal, and the value of tho minerals, i Then a plan could be formed, and a scheme submitted to the government. I!e believed (hat tho destiny of the province would be determined or shaped in some considerable degree for the next generation by what, they | did of failed to do in connection with this matter tliis session.
