Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - March 13, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta 'THE LHTHBIilDUE DAILY HERALD "WEDNESDADY, MARCH 13, 1918 "BRINGING UP FATHER' By G. Mc Manns WHV-IO OE DEUCHTED- COME RICHT CWER-MiyS> JONE'o - YOU CAN PRACTICE. ALL OW - WE ^*A,V�. A FINE OlANo AND ' WANT -[ VOU TQ HE^R VOICE t.'t'.s.- BASEBALL BOXING RACING HS.POR HOCKEY GOLF BOWLING T What's Doing in Baseball Outlook in South for 1918 It looks as if old Sol had come down to earth at last by way of scnd-*S along- a little spring weather, and the fans who have been giving themselves up to the enjoyment of a great season's boxing events are beginning to wonder what's what in the world of baseball for the coming sea son. With the big leaguers in training in the sunny south, the rabid baseball bug up this way where there is no professional league wants to know. Just what will be the program in Sunny Southern Alberta during the ball season no one seems to kno-w just yet, but there is a hunch lingering about that something in the semi-professional line will be on tapis. Here's the outlook: , , VULCAN-M. T. Butler, who made Vulcan a town of a thousand baseball bugs last year is still there, and if he doesn't have a good ball club he wants to know tbe reason why. Butler won the biff tourney at Calgary last fall though his team later lost on a play off with Champion. CHAMPION'-Champion won the championship of the south in 1916 when it had a swell team. In 1017 it had a .fine aggregation including a number of semi-pros from Washington, and beat Vulcan out in the last game for what was considered the provincial championship. What it will do in 101S is not known to the Herald just at present, but the fans up that, war are lousy with money, and having bought .all the motor cars they can use at one time they are ready to back the game to the limit. OARMANGAY-You couldn't keep the Cartnangayites from playing base b?.ll by putting all the fans in jail. They would organize a Jail league. Car-mangay supported a great bunch of youngsters from one of the Seattle suburbs last year and they are all anxious to come back again. Although Carmangay had a little tough luck towards the end of the season, they came through the year with a very small Iosb after supporting a team that co3t -�veil on to $1000 a mon,th. So count Carmangay in.  � BARO.VS-Barons fans want a baseball team in the worst way, and a few weeks ago, it is understood, they gathered together several hundred shekels by way of a start. The would-be manager is aald to have decamped, and the Barons bugs have been sticking to their bowling ever since. But they have the money to support a ball team if things break right, and If there is a league along the line in the offing they want to bo there. LETHBRIDGE-And what about Lethbridge? Compared with the little towns along the Alderside line last year Lethbridge wasn't in it, but of course no attempt was made to bolster up with professionals. At that the locals came out at the right end of the stick, which was something new. This year there is a grand opening for some man or group of men who would take hold and put in a team,with three or four good professionals who could be secured reasonably from the coast. Lethbridge fans would support such a team playing three or four games a week in fine, style, and it is worth thing about. With Lethbridge and three or four towns along the Alderside branch playing semi-pro ball, a great little league could be formed which would furnish a brand of ball that would be just at good as the old Western Canada League used to turn out. The magnates along the line have been thinking about the plan all season and it is about time to bust 'er open. Besides this possibility there are a hundred other teams in the south who will be brushing up the old gloves as Boon as the spring, rush as over. Coaldale, Magrath. Raymond, Cardston, Stavely, Travers, Turin and a whole host of other towns had good teams last year and want to be in the limelight once more. And if Old Sol keeps shining the ball season -wilY be further advanced than talk before many moons have passed. , 1918 American League Pilots Chicago-Clarence H. Rowland.

We, the undersigned, wish to testify that Paof. Barry's course of instruction in horse Training is all and more than it is advertised to be, the first lesson in our opinion being worth the amount he charges for his full course. The term or expression JToi'se Breaking may and often doce convey the idea that harsh or brutal treatment is necessary in the subduing of horses;, but Prof. Barry's system would commend itself to any humanitarian or member of the B, 8. P. C. A., an he emphasizes the importance ot kindness in all 'his lessons. In conslUBion we may say that Prof. Barry's system is a triumph of trained human intelligence over the animal min.d, and is of inestimable value to any one whose work or occupation oinkeg it necessary for them to handle horses.
