Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 10, 1911, Lethbridge, Alberta THE I.ETIIBRIDGE DAILY HERALD Friday, March 10,1911. m Baseball Meeting Tonight Twilight League News ANQUETTED BIG LEAGUE COMER Sporting Goods Septette Presented With Silver Cup and Medals - Great Were the After Dinner Speeches Sir Wilfrid Laurler's soul-stirrins peroration the other day on recipro-fity was a wonderful exploitallou of the King's English. If wns a waster-piece of eloc|uence and insrenuily of spoken words. Like .Abe Lincoln's speech at Gettysburg, it will find a lilace in the world's history. So should the speeches delivered last evening at the International Cafe on the occasion of the banquet tendered to the players and friends of the Sporting Goods liockey team by the management of that marltorioiis septette, v.ho established themselves supreme in the city of the team as a token of appreciation. 1 he manager of the victorious septette was taken unawares but was equal to the occasion and made quite a. lengthy speech on the happy position he was in as hl(;h dictator of the Sporting Goods team. The preEentatios of the News Cup and medals was then made by H. N'icholson. who handed the cup with a few words !o the team manager, and the n-edals to Cnpt. Dunne tor distribution among the respective j players. J. W. S. Duncan then gave his eis-perience as a racmher of one of the amateur hockev league this season. I'titeatns that had snffered a downfall was the time and occasion for the pre-i"' ^''^^^ of t'^e winners. He found it easy to take defeat from good eantation of the Xews Challenge Cup and medals, emblematic of the cityj league championship for the season. The cup is of silver, appropriately en-sraved, standing eighteen inches in height. It presents a nice appearance find general approval was expressed iby all present with the design. The medals for each player were also highly praised, being of sliver and inlaid sports. Others to speak were "Toots" Henderson, as secretary of the league; Bruce Davies, as a Lethbridge oUt-timev; C. B. Penrose, as secretary of the Sporting Goods team; Harry Pilling, as a covered rink promoter: Jack Murray, as a blowed and bounding booster; Reg. McGillls as an ex-L'astern star; Joey Callahan, as a >v!th gold. The "name of the recipient I ^^^thbridge old scout: G. Reber, ae a upon each of the will be engraved medals. The table was spread for twenty-^flve, who all enjoyed an e.\-cellent repast, after which oratorical selection."! were made the order of the evening. H. Nicholson, president of the league, *roke the ice in this respect, speaking of th^ city hockey of this season as the most gucceisfulty terminated athletic organization in his experience of four years In the city. The absence of antagonism and the good fellowshij) which prevailed among the teams was touched upon, also the e.-s-cellent state of the finances of the league and its adherence to amateur principles. J. Vernon jMcKenzie, news editor of the .News, followed, referring To the Spor*'ng Goods as worthy hold-ert of the silverware and medals, paying tribute the while to Manager Ed. Putnam as the lion of the evening p.nd Yankee Rogers Tells How it Feels When the Deadly Toe Hold is Applied by Gotch MUCH INTTREST IN ENGLISH QAMCI  BECKER^ Who is Expected to Shine as a Regular With the New York Giants This Year speed merchant on skates: Bob Mo-Kay and Walter Sinclair were too full of plum duff, etc.. for words. Chas.' Toull, Frank Whitney and Bobby Fair-brother were the concluding speakers of the evening. CALGARY TO HOLD BOWLING TOURNEY It is altogether likely that Lethbridge will be represented at the Provincial Bowling Tournament in Calgary on the 22 to 24 of this inonth. The following team will represent Calgary at the Spokane bowling tour- SASKATOON KOSTiLE OYER LEAGUE DEAL Saskatoon, ' � -Pans here are | They met all thoir obligations and almost un: ly of the opinion i carried out their pan of the contract, that they .landed a most juicy Uiot so, however, t!i(> lc-i�ue.

The toe hold is the deadliest Invented In recent years. Frank Gotch first saw its possibilities and used it on hia op-I ponents, with the result he won his matches in short order. Having seen it used ou ntoro than a score of occasions. I am inclined to side with those who want it barred. It is a cruel, vicious lock, one that requires no especial cleverness to secure, and once secured cannot be broken, provided the user has even ordinary strength, which all the big wrestlers have. If a man hasn't sense enough to give up (and many have mistaken idea that "gameuess' requires a man to lake u chance on broken bones rather than quit.) no ono can tell what may happen. Suddenly and ferociously ly applied it means the breaking^ of a bone In the foot or ankle and perhaps the leg. Slowly applied It means indescribable torture. Yankee Rogers once had the toe hold ajiplicd by Frank Gotch, who knows belter than anyone else how to put the terrible lock on a victim. He afterwards said to me: "When Gotch gets this clutch on you something's got to give. In "i.^' ^ case be wasn't vicious and refrained from snapping It on (lulck.

U \ was terrible, absolutely terrible, and if the upper man had any personal enmity for his opponent and chose to go the limit in gruelling him It would mean that he might be crippled for life. I stood the pain until my eyes bulged out of their sockets. Then, realizing the hopelessness of resin-1 tance, I tried to turn over on my back and allow the fall. But I couldn't; even do tlinl. I w^as poweileas in every muscle and could only gasp. Luckily the referee saw me trying to say somQlhing and asked me if conceded the fall. I could still nod my head and gave up the match, as any man in the world under similar oircumElances must have done. Take it from me, 1 want no further acijuaintanco with the toe hold." If that isn't as brutal as the "s'trang-gl�" I mlBs my guess. London, March 9.-Football enthusiasts nre keenly canvassing the chances of the re-spectivo clubs engaged In the fourth round of the Gngliah Cup tomorrow as follows: Chelsea vs P/wlndentown; Westham United vs Dlaohiburn Kovera; Newcastle United vi Derby County, and Bradford City vs Burnley, In rugby football interest focuyses on the International game at Cardllt, between Ireland and Wales, which will decide the championship, both havhiK defeated England and Scotland.

Th'e � ma'jer will hardly be allowed to rest wheri;^ it is and it is understood that the local club will take the matter up with Secretary Farrel. Regina, Mnr. 9.-The baseball fever has started in Regina, and there sure will be some ball here this summer. The good old game will flourish in the capital It in no place else In Saskatchewan, for the concensus of opinion is that Regln.a. should, must, and will have a real live baseball team, a pennant winner. Regina has learned lessons In finan-jclng a team in the Western Canada Baseball League and will go after the rag this year in a proper way. It costs money to keep a good team of men in the game all the time, but Regina seems to be quite prepared to lay some more money, as it has in the past, for the sake of the game. Several schemes, and feasible ones too, have been advanced for the financing of the Regina team and there is no doubt but that the club will have no difficulty In getting to business with the backing that ha� been promised. A scheme had already been planned In Saskatchewan /or the sale of (100 Eoagon tickets at |10 a piece, thus assuring the team's salary at the outset of the season. This scheme might be well worked in Regina and the contributing public would get �omething ! ed.) : DEACON WHITE IS FAST SIGNING UP MEN Tobacco and Brains Ceaseless experiment in tobaecoi, incetaant vigilance In manufacture and preparation for the marltet, are the price paid for the production of a lucceasful cigar.

At Your Cigar Store 7m EDMONTON WILL HAVE AN EVEN STRONGER TEAM THIS YEAR THAN IN 1910 Edmonton, Mar. 9.-"The league I suits me to a nicety," says D�acon I White, manager of the Jidmonton I Baseball Club. "U looks well from the standpoint of the club owner and the fans. The coat of transportation will bp lessened considerably while j tliere -will bo just as much Interest ' in p. -six-innm li-;igufl as in the old eight i team circuit." immediately Deacon got word of the formation of the league, he began to .E;ot his think tank working in the di-recaion of new material. The shutting out of Saskatoon and Lethbridge throws some good players on the market and the Edmonton manager got off wives at once to the players who would look good ill the grey suits with the thin blue s'ripe. Deak will not I show his hand at present ns he wishes ; to keep .[ho o|iposlng managers in ig-I norauce of the players he is aiter but : the fans can rest assured that they ' are among the pick of the deceased j teams. The players will train In TSdmonton j and if ilioy are fortunoite In getting 1 the sa-nc u citlier as last spring should �have no diniculty In gelling in first 'class shape In tvi^o weeks' lime. As ; the season opon.s on May Krd, the play ers win probably assemble here about April 20th.

But Deak will take a trip to the Coast at the beginning of April and see what the Northwestern I League mnusgers have in the way of [Surplus talent. Pete Morse's kid brother, Paul, has accepted teamD with Edmonton .and will make a game attempt to fill the shoes of hie illustriovis brother. It the kid has anything like the ability of Pete, and the critics say he has, there should be no doubt about him getting |� regular pjaoa on tUo Iin^-�P. The renowned Bugs Shafer bids fair to become a bone of contention between Edmonton and Brandon, both of whom would like to get the former Saskatoon first sucker's signature to a contract. He is claimed by both teams and thereby hangs a tale. Early in the winter. Deacon got Shafer'a address and wrote inijuirlng how he would like to play with Edmonton in event of Saskatoon not having a team. for their money. Letcher for Manager The old veteran, Tom Letcher, lookB the real goods for a manager this year, and with his experience he should' be able to give Regina a flrst-clasa baseball team. He is not a particularly brilliant man on the field, but is a consigtent performer and titne after time In Regina he has clouted his team to the fore. The e.xperienco he haa had in the middle states baseball world will fit him for the position of manager and under his leadership the old rag which floats the breeze somewhere near the foothills should come to where It projierly belongs. In an Interview with several of the . prominent fans this morning enthus-j lasm seemed to be the keynote and ] Bupport waa promised. Keep^-Wlth in Salary Limit i Considerable Interest was aroMaed by the announcement that the Henley Regatta Stewards had retiiBed the entry of the Ottawa R. C. on account of the C-anadtan Club having raised money for the expenses by public subscription, says the London Sporting Life. Wo have good authority tor stating that tho exact position la �� follows: The Ottawa people rftleed by publio subscription over 5,500 dollars to defray the expenses of sending their eight to Henley for the Grand Challenge Ctip (not the Stewards aa atat-When this fact w�a reported In the English press, a communlcatloa was sent from the Henley 'Hegatt* Committee to the Canadian Association of Amateur Oarsmen pointing out that sitch a course was against tb� rules of the regatta and that ^!st money necessary for the purpose must be subscribed by tho members of the club. On the Canadian Association representing these facts to the Otta'wa R. C, it was U't once decided to rotmn the Biibsorlptiona contributed by all persons out.'jlde the member* of the club. It is quite erroneous to state that the Henley Stewards had refused, th�* entry, as It is not due until June 1, and It Is gratifying to leorn that Ottawa R. C. are determined to be represented at Henley this year, the sx-ponsea being borne entirely "by tha members of the club. In all probability, too. there will be other colonial competitors, which will make the Hen- lUr.

The towns nre all In a direct "line. This will make the travelling expenses cheaper and this Is one of the biggest things to be considered. It was on the road that all of the team.'j lost money. 1"he fifty cent'ball proposition on holidays and Saturdays- and for double headers may itot appeal to some of the fans who have been used to plunking down a mere two-bit piece to get into the game, but this Innovairion la one of the wisest that could be made. Baseball teams cannot be nin on en-thuslasip and newspaper dope alone, although both of these things are Important factors. In fact, It a straight four-bit admission were to be charged It would not be aslOng too m,uch. The fans demand good ball and good ball costs money. It would not be considered a holdup it nil the dyed-in-the wool fans were asked at the beginning of 'the season to take out ten dollars' worth of stock^ln the baseball club, so that we could have first class ball even though they knew that .they would never get It back In cash. However, gome of these same fans will holler "hold-up" when they are asked to contribute a measly two-bit piece extra to see the holiday and S�t,urday garaes. It they will look at It In the light of it being Just their small contribution toward providing good baseball tor the aeason then they will see I the wisdom of tbe ruling. , thousand for salaries, and travelling expenses and inoidentals will almost eat up the gate receipts; but If all of the teams stay within the salary limit and the teams stick to It through the season there will be little chance of losing on tbe venture."

Inquiries have been received from the Arundel Club at Baltimore, but It la not likely that their entry would be accepted because the American Association have no agreement with tho Menley Stewards.
