Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 13, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta ^'BRINGING Ol^i FATHER" BASEBALL BOXING , RACING SPORT HOCKEY GOLF BOWLING What's Doing in Baseball Outlook in South for 1918 It looks as It old Sol had come down to enrth t last by way ot send-fcS along a Uttle spring weather, and the fans Who haro been Klvtng themselves up to the eujoymeht of a great aeaion's boxing events are begin-' nlng to wonder what's what In the world of baseball for the coming sea son. With the big leaguers in training in tile sunnr. liquttk, the rabid basc-hall buc no this iway where there is no profSssJonal lehgue wants to know. nlng to wonder what's what in the world of baseball for the-coming sea- . With the big leag ' -------^ �� -oki,i huno. 1 bug up thisiway wUcic mo.o . ___,_________ Just .what will be the program in Sudny JSotithetn AlberU during the ball season no one'seems to know just yet. but there is a hunch lingering about that something in the semi-professional line wfll be on tapis. Here's the outlook: V \ /\''� � VULCAN-M. P. Butler, who made Vuldin � t(rt*rn^bf � thmwand base-' ball bags last year is stIU there, and H >he doesn't .hate a good ball club he want? to know the reason why. Butler* won the ^bir tiitrney at Calgai^ last fall though his team later lost on a play off'with CHiampion. CHAMPION-Champion won' the championship: of �the south In 1916 when it had a swell team. In 1917 i^ had a ^ne-aggrMiation Including a number of semi-pros from Washington, and beat VaMM'out In the last game for what was considered the provincial champloilshlp. \Vhat it will do In 1918 is not known to the Herald Just at present, bui'the fans up that SPEEDM MARK60U way are lousy with money, and.havingboughtt^all the'm'otor cars they can use at one time they are ready to back' the'gaihe tortile limit. CARMANfiAY-You couldn't keep the Carmangayltcs from playing base bzll by putting all the fans in Jail. They'WoUId'organtie a jail league. Car-mai^gay supported a great bunch of youngsters^rom one of the Seattle suburbs last year and they are all anslous ; to' cbm� -.bMk again. Although \ Carmangay had a little tongh luck towards the end ot.UiQsqafronrth^y came -through the year with a very small loss after supBOrtliig � team that co�t well on to ?100Q a month. So count Carmanrfay^ in. � j.;.> . ^ BARONS-Barons*fans want-a baseball'team In^'thV. worst way, and a few .weeks ago, it is understood, they gathered together several hundred shekels by'way of a start. The would-be manoger Is'aald to have decamped, and the Borons bugs have been sticking to thelh bowling ever since. But they have the money to support.a ball ^eam, if things break' right, and It there la a league along the line ini the offing 1 they .want to bo there. , LBTHBRIDGB-And whot about LethbrldgeT Compared with the little towns along the Alderaide line last year'Lethbridg�'MWasn't lii it, but of courseno attempt was made to bolster up with yrofetslonals. At that the locals came out at the right end of the stlolc'girhlcti was something new. �This year there ip a grand opening for stfme'fm'an drl* sroup of'men who vould take hold and put in a team,with thNO'Ar.fOiir'gooq professionals who could be secured reasonably trom the ciilist. liitbbridge fans would support such a team playing three or four gamea a week in, aad it Is, worth thing abouL v Allison and . Tait Both Speed Boys and Fanu.Will See Fast Go m playing, furnish a ada League,used to turn out. T(ie magnates along �.h�.Hn*;iiive been think-ing about the.plan alt;season and It ift about ttm�to-'er open.

"I always fight better when I'm up agalKst a good boy." The fatif are. taking �; great liking to Allison, ^nd many are backing him with something more _ than .their good looks. For one thing, he'is In condition. He werk-ed for an hour and a half the . ot: :r- day and his wind wasn't' affected in the least.
