Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 17, 1915, Lethbridge, Alberta iY, MARCH 17, 1915 r,v-r i: THE LfetHURlDGB DAILY HERALD lefts : Wis,, March 17.-Jaclf the infighting, .usin^. rights and le �Dillon, oi ludia,apoU�. deicatcd 0�u- %J,^f,^�,3 Ksf�;-�p- on his. ;le�t, trying iiardiw widie boat Smith, of New York, in a ten/ round no decision boxing bout hero, last night, according to a majority of the' sporting ^writers at the ring-Eido. Dillon was too last for Smith on SWinits to the � head,,, which seldom readied tlieir.rtiark.f.l'be fight was marred by considerfible. clinching, and RclBicb Stout was'kept busy separating the men. Seventeen Years Ago Today Pob FiUsimmons First Delivered His Famous Solar Plexus Knockout On the 17th of March seventeen years ago today, Bob . Fitzalmmons fought his memorable battle at Carson City, Nevada, defeating Jim Corbett in th6 fourteenth round by the use of his famous'shlk or solar plexus Mow. . vTheV fight Is tho most celebrated o� the ntiiny. ring battles engaged In by the: wbiderful Cornishman, and ended lA "drimBtlo faBJjlon. FitzslmmonB ap-pieared tik bebdpelessly outclassed by C6rbelt, but In the fourteenth round, the bettered and bleeding- Briton stepped in under the Irish-American's guard, drove his powerful left into his opponent's stomach, and, without changing bis positiou, shifted his left to, Corbett's jaiw, putting Gentleman Jini down for the count, and establishing; hlmSelf supreme in the pugilistic HOW BASEBALL DOPE MAY BE UPSET world. Fitzsimmons is now 53 years of age, Corbett 49. Tom Sharkey has said o� Fitzsim mona: "FltMlmmons was , the greatest fighter the world ever bad, I've said that before-I iay it now-and I'll keep oh saying It. No, not merely just inch for inch; Bob was the best of them all; size didn't figure with him. The Fitissimmons I first fought in San Francisco could have wjjipped Jim Jeffries the best daythatJim ever saw. "The Fitzsiinitnons whom Jetfrles whipped for th?i world's championship, was not the sanie than J'met. Bob bad started to slip then, and the fact that he went on and foagtit well for two or tbree years after Jeff whipped him, only goes to show what a tnily wonderfirtman he was." GEHING H FOR SUMMER With spring showing itself on every Ride, sport naturally tends toward the summer activities which Cor two summers Since the Letbbridge Aqua-'tic Association was lormed, has been centered at the lake. The members of this active body have dbne considerable in advancing gooh clean sport on the lake and judging from the interest taken last year, thisir efforts have not been in vain.

HOW PACERS HAVE CUT RECORDS IN THE LAST HALF CENTURY The recent sale of Directum I, the pacing champion,, for a sum said to be close to |45,D00, brings to mind the remai^kable gain in speed made by; the side-action racer In recent years. A study of the records from ,1866 to ^915 shows that In this period of 49 years the mile records made either in competition 'or against time,. has been reduced from 2,2t�/4 to 1.55, a gain of Z6Vi seconds. Directum. 1. holds the race record of 1.58, made at Columbus, Ohio, on September 30, 1914, and pah 'Patch, the. against-time record of 1.55, made at St. Paul, Minn., on September 8, 1906. (By Hugh S. Fullerton) I was making up some dope on the coming baseball season the other day, and jotted down a list of X's, meaning unknown quantities that may be Inter-, Gsting to the tans. Wo are apt to say "such and such a team has a cinch'.;:-, but here are a few problems, anyone of which, going wrong, may upset the dope;^ Will Walter Johnson be rcstralnatl from playing, and it not will his pitching be affected by his double Jump? Will Larry Doy^o return to form? Win Johnny Wvers completely recover his health Will Jack Coombs bo able to come back? Will Lajole return to batting form With the Athletics? Will Ad Brenuan's arm como back to shapo? Will George Davis live up to the form he promised last fall? Will Leonard and Foster pitch as well as they did last year, or was their great showing a freak of the game? Will Rube Marq.uard p'lay in New York, or Brooklyn, or not at all? When one sits down at this stage oC the game to study the dope, ho Is confronted with a score of such problems that can only be solved by time. It wo knew the answer to each, we probably could place each team about where it will finish this season and figure the approximate percentage of each. For instance, if wo knew whether Jeff Tesreau, Mathewson and Mar-quard, would be . back in form, that Meyers, Snodgrass and Doy'le would hit as they should, we would figure the Giants to win. Having to guess, we usually figure 50-50. If all the sporting scribes in the country had known the true inside facts about the Athletics last October, about half of us would have picked Boston to beat them. Unfortunately for us the series was half over before the scribes knew that the Atb-letics were badly torn up IntemaMy. It Is probably just as wtfil, for it adds to the uncertainty of the game -and uncertainty makes for interest, SUTTON LEADS THE GREEN TABLE EXPERTS Captures With VANCOUVER reAM BEAT ALL-STAR SEPTETTE 9-8 Portland, ore,, March 16.-In an exhibition match here tonight the Vancouver champions defeated an AU-Star team of Victoria and Portland players by a score of 9 to 8.

Ottawa- CONNlEi MACK EXPECTS TO WIN WITH BROKEN TEAM Athletic Manager Has High Hopes of Yo.ung Twirlers New York, N.Y,, March 16.-Connie Mack, manager of the Philadelphia Athletics, is quoted as saying: "I have every reason;to believe that the Athletics will again win the American league pennant. I am confident that my young twirlers will more than make good, and what remains of my 1914 team will be out there working like thor champions of old." If Mack, with his record of six American league pennants and three world's championships, can win another pennant this season wltli two pitchers.

George Sutton won the championship, wltii Demarest and Cline , close second and third, which for the last four Albert Cutler finished fourth, Svith Yamada, the "tough luck" player, fltth. Schaefer, Cochran and Catton, the three youngsters, did not make the showing expected of them, lor the fact, claims President Mank, that they are not seasoned campaigners, which gave the older players quite an advantage over the youngsters -. The league, however, has been pronounced a success financially and a permanent fixture.. X more siiccessEul season is anticipated ne.^t year, for the new organization, for tho fact that President Mank was compelled to experiment more or less the first season.
