T 8Y A CLOSE MARGIN Raymond and Stirling supplied the multitude of spectators with plenty of thrills in their final game at the "Y" last night and Stirling won out I by the close score of 29-25. It was nip j and tuck all the way, with Stirling i getting a good lead early in the game,; which Raymond could not overcome, j although they tied the score 24-21, with I only 3 minutes to go. j The gallery was packed with a very | mixed crowd, Raymond and Stirling i each bringing up close on to 75 sup-) porters each. The Lethbridge crowd was mostly neutral, but at times the yelling was deafening. The first half started out with a rush, Raymond ringing up a couple of baskets, but Stirling cams back and tied the score 8-8. Stirling then got away good again. "Tiny" Micholson and Spackman both negotiating a couple of baskets, and wheu half time waa announced, the score stood 19-11. The second half was much, closer and faster with the advantage a little in Raymond's favor. For a time the outcome was very dubious. Raymond was shooting better but neither side shot up to form. The score was tied up 24-24 with only a few minutes to go, but Stirling finished up with two field baskets and a foul counter wheu the whistle blew for final time. For the winners Micholson the giant centre and V. Spackman did all the scoring, each ringing up a half dozen nice field baskets. Stirling guards D. Micholson and Ostlund played airtight bail. For Raymond "Biddy" Meldrum, Nalder and Fisher made some nice shots, but were not shooting np to form, missing several open chances. "Turk'' Buhler played a tight guard game on Spackman and Skouson battled royally with Micholson. The line-up was: Stirling Raymond Spackman Meldrum Brandley Fisher Nicholson Nalderj Ostlund , Skouson Micholscn Buhler Referee "Chick" Edwards; umpire, L. Dunsworth. Taber and Raymond The first game between Taber and Raymond juniors furnished as many thrills and as much excitement as the big game. It was certainly close. Taber took the lead most of the way, but the Raymondites made a thrilling fin- DATES SET FOR STANLEY CUP GAMES Montreal,-March 15.-President Cal-der of the N.H.L. announced today that the dates for the Stanley Cup games In Toronto between Toronto, winners of the National League Hockey championship and Vancouver, Pacific Coast champions will be Wednesday, March 20, iSaturday, March 23 and .Monday, .March 25. If fourth and fifth games are necessary they will be played on March ?7 and* 30. Toronto. Mr. Calder announced, want Crawford-and Adams, two of their players ineligible for the series, as officials. The Vancouver team wants Mickey Ions, a coast referee to act as an official. Mr. Calder favors an eastern and western man a3 officials. ' Querrie Concurs. Toronto, March 15.-Charles Querrie of the Torontos has accepted Frank Patrick's suggestion that the western and eastern officials handle the Stanley Cup games. Crawford and Adams will be Torbnto's suggestion and .Mickey Ions probably will be the western official. Arrangements Under Way Pay Keturn Visit About Easter Time to The Edmonton Journal says:-"Today John Crozier received a communication from George MrKil-lop. .secretary nf the Lethbridge Y..M. O.A. basketball team, in which the Southerners state they are going to make the Calgary officials substantiate the charges of professionalism hurled at Lethbridge and Raymond. McKillop says his team is amateur in every sense and entirely qualified to compete in the provincial championship series-. It is altogether likely Edmonton will hook up with Lethbridge, and Good Friday has been tentatively arranged as the date for the game here." There is every prospect that Lethbridge and Edmonton will play off a secies shortly. Lethbridge is ready lo go to Edmonton to return the visit of the northerners. Calgary's dog-in-tiie manger trick in ignoring Lethbridge's claim to engage in the "championshij" isn't causing any worry here, and Edmonton doesn't seem to be worrying about charges of "professionalism." Some Few Think Otherwise- Tait Not a Very Popular Champion BARONS BOWLERS ARE HERE TONIGHT Barons bowlers will invade the Dominion alleys in force tonight in an effort to win the five-man series of home and home games. A picked squad from Lethbridge took Barons into camp on Barons alleys last Saturday night and the locals are confident of a win tonight. Lethbridge has a lead of 70 pins to start on. ish and copped off the honors by a hair'3 breadth. Taber played good combination and had their shooting been more accurate thoy very likely would have won. For the conquerors the forwards did good shooting, he of the breakfast food reputation, "Cornflakes" Fairbanks bearing the biggest burden of the scoring. The Raymond boys seemed to be experiencing trouble with the slippery floor. Their guards played well. For tho conquered Harris brothers were very much in evidence, playing good combination together. Bullock played a very good guard game, intercepting many passes. The final score was 25-24. The lineup: Taber Raymond Ivan Harrii Redd Ira Harris Burr Wilson Fairbanks Bullock Romney M. Harris Jensen Referee, L. Dunsworth. JUST RECEIVED A Shipment of Patches for the Marvel Junior : Vulcanizer : SIX TEAM LEAGUE ERNATIONAL Toronto, Mar. 1G.-It was stated here last night on the authority of people quite close to the owners of the Toronto ball club, that the formation of a six-team league to replace' the defunct International League is now practically assured. The cities named as likely to be represented in the new organization-the name of which has not been settled-are as follows: Buffalo, Toronto, Baltimore, Newark, Jersey- City and Rochester. - TEAMS THAT HAVE WON THE STANLEY CUP HOCKEY TROPHY Bijou Motor Parlors Limited THE HOUSE OF 8ERVICE FIFTH STREET 80UTH LETHBRIDGE, ALT*.

Though there are a few fans who think that the Herald's decision in the Tait-Allison bout was not according to Hoyle. they are few. Most of them however say that we called it right. Some claim that Tait won by an even larger margin. A few others think that a draw would have suited the occasion. There are a very few who. had they had the say. would have given tho bout to the lowan. All of which goes to show that there are a. diversity of opinions about the result. It is just this diversity of opinion which is the spice of the ring game. If all'fans'saw and thought alike there would be nothing to fan about. If you will hark back you will remember that after the Ross-Brennar. go. there was a lot of talk about Jack Doherty's draw decision. Jack called it as lie saw it. He knew about as much about the game as anyone in the hou3e. and he was right in the ring where ail the milling was taking place. Which goes to show that you can't please all the people all the time. But while Tait won the Allison bout by a small margin, it wasn't just what you would call a popular win. In fact Tait is not the most popular champion the world has ever known. In fact about 75 per cent, of the fans would have been de-e-llghted if Allison had made the haymaker he shoved over in the second frame stick and count Tait out. Tait's tactics in using the heel of his glove on Allison's face at every opportunity didn't add to his popularity either. The lack of steam in the Canadian champ's punches was another thing the fans are wondering about. It was generally considered that Tait could hit, but he didn't display the fact on Thursday night. Altogether the bout was rather a disappointment from a lightweight standpoint. For speed it wasn't (o ua compared with the Ross-Brennan middleweight battle where speed was the big feature. Tait, it is understood, is to fight Jack White, a brother of Charley White of Chicago in Winnipeg on Monday next. Allison has a bout lined up in Waterloo about ten days hence. He has been fighting about every two weeks all winter. Meanwhile there will be no more matched bouts here before May 24th. A lot of local fans would like to see Jack Ryan, the local man, stack up against Tait on that date. STILL CHAMPION Chicago, Mar. 16.-Augie Klechkefer, of Chicago, retained his title of world's three cushion
