Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 8, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta FRlpAY, MARCH 8, 1018 THE LETHBRinOE DAILY HERALD PAGE THREE "BRINGING UP FATHER" By G. McManus I I HATE TKE�iE ) RECEPTION".- I I W\^H I COULD ^ PtND ^ WA\TEI3- I HAD MORS. FUN AT MAN-Y A POHERAU: ARE VOU A WAITER ? ARC YOU? Calgary Scribes Again Beefing About Basket Championship We have long suspected that Calgary was Alberta. To read the Calgary papers one could gather no other Impression. Even the juvenile quill manipulators of the sport pages of the Calgary dallies show that they have never been far from their own back yard .by the manner In which they talk Calgary to the ^exclusion of all else. They have, however, at last admitted thai Edmonton Is a dot on thoi map somewhere Up near the Arctic circle, and as Edmonton has a basketball team or two, Calgary takes notice. As for Lethbrldge, Raymond, Stirling and Taber where most of the basketball In the province is played, the Calgary scribes are quite In the dark. Their Ignorance Is appallng. Of course Calgary has counted the southerners out as professionals, which Is quite a Joke when one considers amateur sport as she is played In HosuTown. With this in mind it is refreshing to read about Calgary and Edmonton playing off for the'provincial basketball "championship." Here is the effusion of tho'Calgary Herald on this subject: HER Basketball comes next on the championship list between Calgary and Edmonton, and there remains little doubt but that the roughnecks up north will have the floor sprinkled with red pepper or some other fiendish device to trip up the local basket tossers. The descendants of this great Swrm-skisyth Eskimo tribe are apt to resort to almost anything In order to cop off the basketball honors, now that they have lost out on the hockey championship, though It must be admitted that they almost grabbed that, title by putting ail the Calgary players In with the spectators and rushing the ernpty.gpal by themselves. The Edmontonlans'claim to have a house full under that proverbial "hat" about Calgary amateurs, and they Intend to tear loose shortly If the local authorities press the charges of professionalism against the northern city baaketballers. Days of Joking have passed; and Just as soon as the Eskimos draw their amateur cards for the provincial basketball championship series with Calgary the locals will be ready for them with a finished team.
