Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - March 15, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta r\� > $ >: o > BASKETBALL AT THE T TONIGHT Visiting Teams, Stirling and Raymond Will Settle Controversy Great Wrestling Match at Vulcan-Montanan Was a Big Surprise Tonight is the big night in basketball circles, and will see in action on the "Y" gymnasium four visitingj teams, Raymond's first team vs. Stirling, and Kaymond's speedy second team vs. Taber. , The first teams mentioned \viil stage the big act, and Lethbridge people who saw them clash at Raymond will recommend this contest to be one of the best- this year. Both Raymond and Stirling will without a doubt bring in their usual long list of followers, so if you want" a seat come early. The first game is billed for 8 o'clock sharp. The standing of the Southern Alberta teams for the Southern Alberta championship is at -a very critical stage. If Raymond loses tonight they are out of itt and Stirling and Lethbridge will play off. Stirling played Lethbridge two games which were agreed upon as strictly exhibition with no bearing on the championship so that Lethbridge will have another crack at the junction town. If Raymond wins tonight and Lethbridge loses to Stirling in their final game every_ team" is tied but If Lethbridge defeat"! Stirling the southern honors will go io Lethbridge. It will be hard for a neutral crowd to pick- favorites tonight. HEAVIES FAIL TO AGREE TO TERMS Kansas City, Mo., Mar. 14.-After a conference today, Col. J. C.

There was a delicious supper served by the ladies ol the district at midnight and several songs were sung by Hammer and Kello.

The Times says: "Frank Patrick announced to a few of his friends before the game that he was going to give the boys a treat. He meant that lie was going/to play himself. Little did the modest president of the association know just what was in store for the fans'. Let us recapitulate just what did happen. "1. One torrid wood swinging battle in which numerous players drew time on the penalty benoh, and in which the, club physicians were kept busy. "2. The eighth overtime battle, one hotir; two minutes and fifty-eight second of action, of the season, and the third on local ice between these same teams. "3. One fight between Mickey Mac-kay and Frank Foyston, in which the latter received several bad cuts about the face from the Vancouver lad's stick. . "4. One attempt by a spectator to reach the ice for reasons known probably only to himself and which resulted rather, disastrously for hiirt when Mickey Ion, Hughfe Lehman and Lloyd Cook assisted him back over the fence, and further disastrously when another spectator assisted him off. the feet of that man's wife. Yes, we admit that Frank Patrick had a hunch when he used that #k*rd "treat" before the battle started.
