Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 7, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY, MARCH 7,1918 , tm LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD ..... . , --ri-----------�-------^--^ � ' ~ BRINGING UP FATHER" PAGE THIIlE�;\R PUNK (00-C)OT WHERE Both Have Draws With Charlie Scully Within Past Six Months Fans aro highly pleased that they are to see the Canadian lightweight champion In action here against a boy of real clasa, Neal Allison o� Waterloo, Iowa, where more than one clever mitt artist has sprunR from. The fans know Talt. What they want to Icnqw no\v fa:' "ttfow good Is Allison?" ' Perhaps the best way  to compare the two boys Is through the niodl\im of a iihlrd^ lightweight whom" they have bpth-n^t, Charlie Scully ^ot Chicago, r,ep6tfnleed as one o� the clever.boys ot that division. Both Talt and Alli&on kave met Scully within recent months. Talt fought in Uie Gateway ot the l^alrios oa^September 3rd last, L/ail)or Day. � It was a groat mill all the way. And Bcully and AUlfon mixed it In Waterloo, Iowa, on November 28th, fighting ten rounds to a draw, according to the boxer's records, but accord Ing to tlie Courier-Reporter of Waterloo, it was Allison's match all the way. Here is the Courier-Reporter, account ot the fray: "Neal Allison, Waterloo llght-� weight, advanced another stop toward the top ot his division when he outfought Charlie Scully, Chicago, at tbo'Waterloo theatre last night in' one of the olasBiest 10-round bouts ever held here. For action  and epeod Bh0wn, the contest could not have been better. Both scrappers . were anxious for victory and while thla tended to make them a bit. cautious,! there were few dull moments. The big crowd showed ;lts .approval by giving both men a big hand when , ' the'final gdiig sounded. ' "Allison is given the decision over ' Scully becauao be landed moro hard blows and forced the fighting. With tlie; exception ot the third round, - whon.Scully was tho' aggressor and put over several stiff punches. Alii-'.on. ,was master ot tho altuatlon.  Scully probably delivered more punches than the Waterloo scrapper, but the majority of them wore weak lefts which Allisou did not attempt to knock down. Scully Takes Punishment "Scully, on tho other hand, asslmll' atod considerable punishment. Allison landed numerous blows which sent the Chicago fighter's head flying back, while In the clinches, Allison was much superior to his opponent. Allison loft the ring unmarked, while Scully's right eye was in had shape and his lips were cut. "Whore Allison stood head and shoulders above Scully, however, was in cleverness. Time, and again Neal made his rival look like an amateur by causing him to swing wildly and miss by feet instead ot inches. Scully cut loose with vicious wallops several times but Allison let them slide by with ease. "Scully -fought a careful fight., It was seldom that he rushed Allison and when ho did iio took pains not to'exposo the several inches ot nose that graces his face: Allison led many times and often scored with lelts and rights to the head and body. ' "The first round went to Allison; �the second was oven; the third went to Scully; the fourth was even; Ai llson won In the fifth, sixth and sov oufl;, while the three final rounds were even." ' " And now the fans can dope it out for themselves. It would appear that tho' two boys are^ very evenly matched, and on that account the mill here on March'14th should be a better go than the Tail-Bloom affair Italked of some time ago, for it is thelgeneral opinion that Talt Is not yet experienced enough to bump np against a man of Bloom's calibre. As it is, Tait and Allison are both young and anxious to land at tho top ot tho lightweight division. The match will therefore be a great exhibition , between two young and clever boys'. THEM AND LOST Braw Game For Cadillac Cup Decided By One, Shot in Extra End VULCAN mm FOR BOM AND Good Matches Being Staged There-Sansom-Taylor the Next Card (Continued fhom Fhont Paob) IS fomvfit COLLAR CLnrrr, PBAOODY' h CO., inc. UontfMl Toronto President '^Announces That There Will Be "Baseball As Usual" Toronto, March 6. - President McCaffery of the Toronto BasK-ballclub, announced that the International League' will be re-or-oanixed and that there will be baseball as. usual this season. The Igned ephtract of Pitcher War-hop has been received. Larry La-Jole is expected to come here for' a conference before the week end. On Monday night two rinks ot the stalwart Taher curlers skipped by "Tubal Cain" Patterson and that old Ontario Tankard skip Cook arrived in tho city In quest of the Cadallac cup. The Lethbridge rinks chosen to defend the trophy were the Maclead and McNabb rinks. Macleod ot the Isles (to give him his proper title) had Nicholson to give him advice and counsel and play 3rd stone, and those ^vI7.-ard sWeepers Duncan Duff and .tack Reld playing second and lead. The splendid sweeping ot these men elicited many comments from the spectators.. It looked serious for Lethbridge .when it was found th�](t the McNabb couldn't play, as he had to address some gathering on tho question ot woman suffrage, but he arrived later to cheer his lieulienant "Johnny Kil-marnAck," who skipped the rink, with Sir Colin Campbell Andrews .playing third, Gha.rlie Carberry and, "Kitchener" played second,-and "The Doc'Mead. Tho Taber boya got away with a rush and were about 14 up at the end ot the 6th, but chiefly due to the splendid work ot Macleod's sweepers, and the clovei] contortionist work ot Cht*-lle Carberry, the Lethbridge, rinks were three up at the end,of the 13th.. Cotjilng home on the 16th end Taber was three up, but "Johnny Walker Mar-noch, by a real "Black Label" shot scored one, and Norrie Macleod scored two, thus tying the score; Norman had a chance toSvin with his last rock, but tho handle came out of it and it landed on No, 3 toe. An extra end had to be played, and It looked like a sure win for Taber when Cook scored 3 points. It was now np to Cook's side-kicker "Pat" to hold the Johnny Walker boys down, but they were going strong and won their'game by  four points, leaving Lethbridge still the holder of-the Cadallac by the margin of one point. In fairness to pld "Pat" it should be told that he had the hardest kind of luck with hi% Inst shot. With a- wide open shot to draw to, just as he went,' to deliver his rock, both his rubbers can^e oft and the stone failed to get pa^t the- hog line. Afterward^ when "Pat" was asked the reason for. making such a bad miss,, ho darkly hinted that he thought either "The. Doc'! .or "Dick" had p^it glue in the hack,, lU seemed quite reasonable, and "Pat" \Yas advised to stick to that story in any event. QUERRIE PEEVED Toronto, Maych 6.-Manager Querrie of the Toronto, has.riotl' fled President Calder.that unless the dates for the play-oftl with the Cana dlens are changed his Heam'.will wltli-draw. He is not satlsfled with the arrangements whrch 'inquires Toronto to play tho second game at home and elalmB that his team shopld have been consulted before the dates woro announced: They also accused Manager Kennedy of the Canadlons of lack of faith. -'J (Special to the Herald) Vulcan, Maicli 5. - Tho town ot Vulcan has shown marked enthusiasm towards the sporllng bouts that have been given to them during tho last two months and small tliough the community may be it ceitiiinly has given of its utmost to support tlio boxing and wrestling bouts that liave been'so ably arranged by Jlr. M. P. Butler, the Vulcan movie king. ' The wrestling match which was pulled off here last week between those two well known wrestlers Walter Anderson and Taylor was certainly a most exciting oho and tho peqple were well repaid for ihelr trouble in turning out. Walter Anderson famed tlie first fall in 12 minutes and repeated |hls 10 minutes after. Tliese two wre.stlers have long heen after one another and now as last it has been decided that Walter Anderson to be champion of these parts. �/ He is a good- clejin wrestler and certainly demonstrated that he knows all the tricks of the trade. We heard rumors that another aspirant to the title was anxious to wrestle the winner ot the Anderson-Taylor bout and after making enqiiirles Manager Butler succeeded In fixing up a bout for Wednesday, "March 13tli, between (Walter Anderson and Guy San som.  This boy 'Sansom must be a go-kettor as he has thrown Taylor twice In an hour. He weighs about 145 pounds and is confident of throw ing Anderson whose v/elght by the way is around 200 pounds. Quite a large bunch of Vulcan people witnessed the boxing match between Ross and Bren nan at Lethbridge, now we ot Vulcan would otter through'the medium ot the press a most hearty invitation to this wrestling match booked, for Wednesday, March 13. Come and see us and also make yourselves acquainted witli the livest little town In the west. Tho weather has shown signs ot Improving now and with It we see the automobiles, Vulcan can produce more uutos to the square inch as It were than any other town ot its size. If you doubt this pay us a visit on a Saturday providing it Is good weather. With regard to the training of the returned men In agriculture, it was true, said Mr. Marshall, that there was not a very great demand from them for such training up to the present time, but he anticipated that a very large body of the men who came back sound In body and health after the war was over, would take up agriculture as an occupation. The men who had come back had not returned in condition to do very heavy work on tho farm, they wanted to take up a small piece ot land out of which they could make a reasonable livelihood. There were from twelve to fifteen at one of the schools of agriculture last spring. FarmI Labor With regard to farm labour' the minister stated that the United States government had now consented to allow some men to come out ot the western states. Central employment agencies were being established for looking after them, and he had wired Bruce Walker at 'VVlnhlpeg asking it they In Alberta would have the privilege of sending agents across the border to select their help. He thought they .would be able to g�t over into Alberta quite a number of men in this way. , Help for Farm Women Help for the women on the farm, said Mr. Marshall, was equally exlg-ious and he repeated what he had told the women's institutes conference that help in the farm households would be well paid for. It was hoped they would have some oijganizatlon to help all along the line. Big Crop Area Arrangements were also being made to get men to leave idle land which could be broken up, and prepared for cultivation by men oc9upying farms He expected to have more new acres broken up this year, he said, than ever before in the history of the province In spite of tlie fact that there were fewer men available. Council of Production < Mr. Hoadley said that if tho war were ended now the problem of Increased production would still be before them, and would be before them for years. He commented on the fact that they had no concrete scheme put before the people as a result of tho conference at Ottawa and gave tho instance of Germany as an Illustration of the value of coordination. The greatest want today, s�ld he, in Dominion and province was in not having some man or men at the head of the different departments *who could appeal directly to the people for production. Mr. Hoadley thought' the \ provincial government shosld create a council of production. On it there should be representatives of labour, agriculture, and of the government.'Thls council would act in an'advisory capacity. It would have attached to It an exclusive staff which would adminiatei^ affairs according to Its direction in the rarious parts of the province. Labor, he said, was beinc dissipated at the present time, comfaientlnK on men leaving the farms, and coming into the cities, and declared that every man should be compelled to work it he wanted to or not. Men In the internment camps should also be employed (CONTIMPBD rROM FKOOT FAW^ the absolutely erroneous lmprear|to^ purposely given by the British me,tlio4 ot drawing up shipping statistics.

Southern Alberta. \ RAYMONDTHINKS be in touch with organized lahour and he insisted that fho members of the house could not divest themselves ot their responslbliities, and leave them at the feet of the minister. Premier Stewart, Interrupting, mentioned that he had that afternoon been informed that the Hon, Charles Dun-'nlng, the representative of the food control board, would be In Edmonton on Thursday. He would no doubt desire to address the legislature and then they would have some definite proposition before them. After that they could gef down to definite discussion of production. Mr. Hoadley, concluding, said they wanted big business man to take charge ot thelsitiiatlon. That was what was being done In Britain. On the motion of Hpn. George P. Smith, the debate was adjourned.
