This man Anderson is a go-getter and has a Tfeautjful action. We in this town would like to see him .on the mat with some of the better | known celebrities as we are sure he j is a real wrestler. The match looked to be a walk-over for Auilerson inasmuch as he had the advantage of weight by roughly 4r> pound:?. From a spectacular point of view the bout was very tiring as neither man could gain a fall throughout the period pi wrestling which lasted two hours and forty minutes. This man Sansom is certainly to be praised for the-valiaut way he battled against superior weight. Anderson did not get into the good graces of the audience owing to the fact that he seemed afraid to mix it owing to the skill ef his opponent. The bout was- niily governed by W. O. Torguson, and his ruling at times had to be of the strictest owing to a little feeling which crept in. . When the bout was called off both men showed sigjs of the ordeai and Anderson then made a statement to the effect that Sansom was the "toughest" opponent he had ever had, and the audience certainly agreed with bim. Sanson! has again challenged Anderson for a finished match, each man  to back himself for $500: two falls out of three and winner taking all. This bout has been arranged for Wednesday, April 10th, and will be a hair-raiser. We had some splendid exhibitions of boxing during' the evening. Two "youngsters" started the proceedings. Glen Jarrett and McLean, the former being given the decision. The next bo ire was between two local aspirants in Fred Snell and Sharp, Uie latter having just a shade the bettor. The main feature of the boxing was between Kenneth Sharp of Vulcan and Kay*o Brennan of Lethbridgc fame. It. was an easy thing for Brennan but it also opened our eyes to the fastest' boxer we' have seen around here. He hag a beautiful action and is certainly a coming star. We have some good wrestling and boxing bouts being arranged and we offer an invitation to our town to all fans of Lethbridge and else- VtJLCArf (From the Advocate.) A". H.

During the afternoon inter-city games were played in Knglish billiards, chess, checkers, volley ball and handball, with the visitors carrying off the lion's share of the honors. The Calgary volley ball team were easy winners, the game being comparatively new to Edmcntoti, who had their first workont on Tuesday night. In billiards- Hegler (Calgary) beat McMullen (Edmonton), and W. Thompson (Edmonton) beat Roberts (Calgary,). In the doubles the Calgary pair won by one point, the final score being 120 to 125.'
