For Tait, the Canadian champ, has given the bugs the surprise of their lives, by his unprecedented improvement since his bout here with Jack Whitey tast fall,and where, bofore his arrival, Allison appeared 'to be the favorite in the betting, Talt has come along and by his thowing has made it even money or even better. "One hundred per cent, improvement," was Al Ross' verdict on Talt, tfter he had worked out three rounds with the champ, which for blinding ipccd had never been surpassed. Ross and Tait gave each other everything they had and Tait was there every inch of the way. He has speeded up wonci^rfully, is just as rugged as ever and packs hi3 same old punch.

So we shall see tonight, we shall see. I E A GREAT STRUGGLE The basketball games between Ray tnond and Stirling aft worthy of spec-i ial mention and the aen.or game can i be salt] to be one of the hardest; fought battles ever played In Southern Alberta. It ;kept the crowd from the beginning of the game till final time in a great heat, of excitement. The Raymond playem and supporters are particularly pleased over this victory as it is the only time a Sugar Town quintet ever, this year or in years gone by, succeeded in defeating the Stirling seniors. Stirling don't by any means feel humiliated) how-*verj aB they only lost by one measly little point. The intermediate game was well contested and a fast game, but the Raymond boys by much superior combination rather decisively defeated the Junction town boys by the score 23-1G. There was some nice shooting done, Redd securing four dandies in the first half and- "Cornflakes" Fairbanks taking his turn in the second half, tearing off four hair raising field fcaikets. Fisher played his usual steady game at centre and also figured in the scoring. Stirling trotted out the strongest line up this year, including "Vic" Spackman and Hollman. T'nerp was some good shooting but their team work was Inferior to their opponents. D. Mlcholson played a good game at centre, ringing up three field baskets. Raymond also won the junior game after a stiff battle by the score 12-11-Stirling led most of the way but the Raymond juvenile's finished strong. The line up of the Senior game 'was Stirling: Raymond: V. Spackman. .20 F. Meldrum ..23 Brandley........ F. Burr...... Mlcholson.....10 C. Nalder .. ..10 Ostlund....... 2 G. Skouson ...

Golf in Canada is Thriving Despite The World War Louis Lee Arms writes as follows in The New York Tribune:--It is said that there are more golf courses under construction In Canada now than there ever have. been. This Is unexpected news and Is gratifying as showing the tremendous hold golf has gained upon both the Dominion and the United States. Any one who has followed the history of the war knows of the heroic activity of Canadian troops. Tlie expansion 'of golf in a country which has given richly of its blood for the cause is one of the slncereat compliments ever paid to the old Scottish game. Ill the United States this season there probably will be played a large number of amateur and professional matches the receipts of which will go to the Red Cross and other war work bodies. The professional have signified their willingness to continue the programme which last season netted some $25,000 for the Red Cross. The amateurs may be counted upon to do likewise. Montreal, Mar. 13.-Torontos won the championship of the National Hockey league and the right to play the Pacific Coast league champions for the Stanley Cup, tonight, when tlie Canadians failed to wipe out the four goal lead which Toronto secured on their own ice in the first game Monday night. Canadiens won tonight's game 4 to 3, leaving the complete score for the series, Toronto 10, Canadiens 7. McGraw Should Get Good Work From His Heavers-three Great Southpaws SURPRISE FOR IHE I0T PLAYS League Leaders Are Trounced Two Out of Three-Shover Gets Honors Experiments are Costly and the Government says we must economize to win the war. !W CHE LIN TIRES and TUBES have stood the test for years. Bijou Motor Parlors Limited Bojivlers in the doubles league at tlie Dominion alleys worked overtime last night and rolled oft four games of the series. Benton and Dickson took two out of three from the league leaders, De Manbey and Irwin. Irwin was high single and high total with 212 and 558. Murray and Prey dropped two to Smith and Evans, though Frey was high single and total with 211 and 558. Aird and Raymond took three straight from Smith and Evans, tlie winners bowling a great game. Raymond was high single with 190 and Aird high total with 52-4. Willetts and Shovervjook Millar and Liscombe into camp two out cAhree in a close encounter. Shover copped both honors with 211 and 572, high total for the evening series. The scores: Benton...... 168 173 124- iC>5 Dickson...... 180 147 204- 540 De Manbey Irwin .. 357 1120 114 15S 212 204 82G- 362 32S-1005 144- 4 If. 142- 558 Murray Frey ..

McGraw obtained the signature of Ferdinand Schupp to a contract at Louisville on Friday night he assured the New York Giants the strongest pitching staff in the National League, if "form" is anything in baseball. For class there are not three better southpaws in the entire league than Schupp, Sallee and Beaton, and their presence on one team gives it a preponderance of effectiveness of the port side variety that cannot be underestimated over a stretch of 154 games. Even if George (Poll) Perritt had "runout" the Giants' right handers are not a corps to he sneezed at when in form. Jeff Tesroau and Prod Anderson are as good a pair of sptthall twirlers as ever slapped a slippery elmed pellet over the pan, the latter only needing a little more staying power to be a star. Al Demaree is a dependable boxman, cool and crafty. But the pride of McGraw's righthanders this years will be unless all signs fall a massive youth from the Boston Braves, Jess Barnes. Jess is an iron man of the McGinnity type. Hf- pitched in fifty games last year and of his, full contests won thirteen losing twenty-ono; this for a. losing, weak hitting team. McGraw says he will hn disappointed,if Barnes doesn't win twenty-five games this season and those who have closely studied him in action declare he is certain to do it with the support that the Giants can give him in the field and at the bat. Then McGraw has another big youngster from the West-Roy Johnson, the McAIester Machine Gun. He is a 200-pound baby, way over 6 feet tall and possessed of great speed and control. He may stand the test at JIarlin so .successfully that he will get a chance in his first year in big company. Comment of Eastern Press is Very Favorable To the Westerners There has been a lot of comment in th� eastern papers over the win of the Ypres puck-chaBers over the speedy Kttchener champs. Here's what they say: * Toronto News C. H. Good, in the News says: "The result of the Kitchener-Winnipeg contest was a great surprise to j the critics that had expected that playing under the six-man style, the O. H. A. champions would win by a fair margin. The speed of the westerners took the fans by the ears and the general opinion is that the cup will return to the west, though Kitchener Is likely to play a much better game on Thursday night it the ice is hard. It was slow last night and the elusive eastern puck chasers' could not get going. The gate receipts were $7,000, the largest of the season. The Globe says: "Last night's contest was in striking contrast to the night before. The Allan Cup contest was played hard! It was clean hockey without resorting to the cannibal methods adopted by the Torontos and Canadiens on Monday." The Mail and.Empire says: "On the play witnessed last night ! and the ice in the same condition, there is little doubt that the trophy will go west, but if the Ice is hard and conditions up to the mark for the second game, it is hardly likely that the one goal margin will play much of a part In the Issue. Either one team or the other will win by a good � margin under these conditions and though one can guess at tlie ability of the western, team on hard lice, Kitchener looks the best bet then." The Globe says: "The Winnipeg aggregation outweighed the Kitcheners, outskated and outchecked them. The westerners furnished brilliant hockey and in view of the fact that they were playing on artificial ice that was in bad condition, under a style of play that was totally unfamiliar to them and in a strange rink, they are deserving of great credit for their.remarkably clever exhibition." Lethbridge basketball bugs will have a chance to see some more real action Friday night, when Raymond and Stirling will stage their play-off game on the local floor. There has not been a good game played here for a long time and some of the fans have been pining for another contest. It will be a life and death itruggle when these two teams clash for the deciding game, and the fact that each team ha* won a game apiece and have ever been the keenest rivals, is insuring enough that It will be one of the best battles ever staged in Lethbridge. For en additional attraction the Tsber team is being imported to play against Raymond's fast second team. This ought to be a good enough exhibition in itself and It looks as If Friday night will see all the Southern Alberta teams in action at once. A general good time is planned for the visiting teams and a big dance will be held immediately after the games. CUBS GO SOUTH Chicago, Iut.  12.-The Chicago Nationals left here in two special cars tonfght for the spring training camp at Pasadena, Cal. There was a rush of hold outs to sign their contracts and all players with (he exception of Grover Alexander and Peter Kilduff, an Infielder, came to terms. Alexander advised President Weegliman that he would join the club at Kansas City tomorrow. Kilduff also will join the party at Kansas City. Manager Fred Mitchell is confident he can satisfy the demands of Alexander, who wants a $10,000 bonus for his transfer from Philadelphia. L T Jacksonville, Fla,, Mar. 13.-When asked today whother an offer of $120,-000 had been made from New Orleans to stage the proposed Willard-Fulton championship bout in that city, Jetsu Willard said he knew nothing of any such offer. Wtllard said he expected to hear of an agreement from Kansas City tomorrow. BOUT BETWEEN BIG St. Louis, Mar. 14.-Fred Fulton, heavyweight fighter and his' manager, Mike Collins, left here test night for Kansas City, where they expect to sign for a championship bout between Jess Willard and Fulton on July'4.

BAALIM MOTOR CO. HOME OF THE CHEVROLET BACK OF UNION BANK HARRY HOI.MAN, Me*. PROF. P. J. BARRY BARONS, ALBERTA March 1st, 1918. We, the undersigned, wish to testify that Prof. 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 Horse Breaking may and often does 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 S. S. P. C. A., as he emphasizes the importance of kindness in all his lessons. In conslusion we may say that Prof, Barry's system is a triumph of trained human Intelligence over "tTie animal mind, and is of inestimable vaiu� to any one whose work or occupation makes it necesBnry for them to handle horses. . i Signed: Alexander MacLean, Alex.
