Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 18, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta GE SIX I-HIS I^KTHBHIDUIS DAILY ^HERALlJ * � � �, MONDAY, MARCH 18,1918 "BRINGING UP FATHE^r By G. McMianus WHVVT IIS THE V/ORUO UIKfe A DEMENTED COW| FOU? i MEOUOPAt HA?>CLOC>Eb Hift PLACE! rN�SLADOF�T-, THANK ^ VF'LU NOT H^AR FI^OM HIM ANY- r* NR.- UlCi4S- VOUtS FR\ENO DOOR* TO >fOO TO '^E-J C 0-0! Edmonton Basketballers Give Calgary A Proper Walloping Calgary has laade _so much noise ahout the provincial basketball cham-plonshlii that the basketball fans are sttU laughing up their sleeves over the walloping handed out Friday night by the Edmonton quintette to the Calgary tossors in the capital city. A lead of Tk! to L'8 is a hr;altUy enougli margin to hold Calgary lor a while, and they may now come down off their high horses a^d talk sense. Following Is the Calgarj- Herald account of the match, which was the first of a series of home and .home games between the two cities: "The Edmonton basketball team will journey to Calgary next Saturday with a lead.of :;5 points as a result of de-�^teating the strong Calgary aggrega- " tion on the local Y.M.C.A. flooi- laat night by u;{ to :!8. ."At half-time Kdmonton led 22 to 11. , 'file Edmonton team, which is the huskiest and best-conditioned tliat has ever represented" this city, was never in difficulties, and despite the confined area of the local gymnasium, at times pulled off some wonderful combination play.-f. They had the advantage over Calgar.v_ in weight and reach, . and while they played a strenuous game there was nothing approaching Toughness. ,Both teams suffered equally from personal fouls, Edmonton losing; two of their best men, Sfeven and Parny.-ln the second half, while Dingle and M'oore, of the Calgarlans, were also banished. The game was ex- � treraely well handled by the Edmonton officials, Wes Pattison and Jack Valentine, and they kept the players moving all the time.. Record Crowd. The largest crowd that ever witnes-eed a basket-ball game in Edmonton was in attendance and the number might iiave easily, been doubled had the gymnasium been able to aocomo-date more. While the lobal team was naturally favorites, Calgary was. not without Its supporters, so the good � plays of both line-ups were liberally applauded. As a curtain raiser to thft " chjimpiDnshlp game/(wo girls* basketr ball teams competed, the result:being H win for Commercial High School over Varsity All Stars by 21 to 13. During / the altteraQoti inter-clty garnqs were played in Bnglish billiards, chess, checkers, valley ball and handball, with the vis^ors carrying oft the lion's share or the honors. TJie Calgary volley ball team were ,. easy winners, the game being com-' paratively vjiew to EdmontoTi, who' ^ bad ihelr first workont on Tuesday " nlgbt. .In billiards' Hegler (Calgary) l�eat .McMiUlen (Edmoaton), and ^y. rVbomvaoii: (Edmonton) beat . Rob- rts(Calgary). In the doubles the . Galgary pair won by: one point, the final score .being 126 to 125.f - Calgary ,won both chess matches and JSdmon-.,'tou won both checker games, 'Wil-illamsoir defeating Pedon and John A. �aicDougall-winning from Irwin. C. *F.;coached'team played dho game of his 'life, John Crosier a't centre was particularly deadly, playing a hard, fast 'and dean gam?, that\ directly resulted In'S field basket.s and one converted foul. Purny lyjd English the, local forwards, worked like machinery, and no better exhibition of combined work has ever been seen on the- local floor than the passing game they played -in (;onjunctlon with John CroEier. Even a veteran guard like Bill Dingle was helpless agtfinst their dashing offense.'^ scored four field baskets and converted eight free throws, while Parny, who was ruled off when the second half had been in progress about fire minutes, scored two goals from the field and converted four, fouls. Hazelhurst, subbing for Parny, did good work, and added si.t points to the Edmonton total. Xobie Stevens never plaj'-od a better game on'the defense than last night, coniing oul^of nearly every mixup with thotball, and before being* ruled .off, managed to count four points. Ken Crozier worked, tis-slduously on the defense, as did Free-,raan, who replaced ..Stevens. Dobsou, Fish and Spence, a' � former Edmontoulun, did the best work for the visitors. Dobson was especially good on free throws, and during the game couverteil nine. Spence showed up to good advantage! in the second half, after Stevens had been placed on the sidelines. Dingle seemed unable to get going against his youngec- and faster opponents' " and did not seem sorry when the fourth personal foi'il was called on him. There was no i doubt that the best team won. ami on last night's form, and playing on "the . larger Calgary gymnasium,. Edmonton should win just as"' easily, as the .ibiggeT playing area will assist Ihclr fast and accurate passing and deadly work In the vicinity of the baskets. The game startc'd "proniptly onNime after both teams had ^Indulged in* a workont; English started the scoring and,. Fish evened up a few secoiulft la'ter.

The bonsplel was the mean.'! of producing much enthusiasm In the Scotch pastime and It is the intention of the ladie.s to run a curling club by themselves next winter.

Butler's treats in the'form of a w're.^t-ling boiit between W'alter Anderson, champion of Saakatcfiewan, and Guy Sanson!, the ,145th marvel, hailing from the States. It might be mention- ed that this bout was the outcome' of the challenge, issued by Sonsom a couple of weeks nfeolomeet the winner of thc.Andersorfn'aylor match and OS was reported Anderson came out the winner. This man, Anderson is a go-getter nml has; a- T}baut.Jlul, action. Wc In this town W'ould like to see him on the -mat with some of the be'ltor known celebrities ns we are sure ho is a real Avresfler. The'iiiatch looked to be a walk-over for AiulcrsOn Inasmuch as ho had the advantage of weight by roughly 45 pounds. .Frbm a spectacular, point of view the bout was very tiring as neither man could gain a fall throughout the period p{ wrestling which lasted two hours-j�hd fftrty minutes. This man Sahsom Is certainly to be praised for the-valiant way he battled against superior weight. Anderson did not get Int'O: the good graces of the audience owing to the fact that he seemed afraid to mix It owing to the skill cf his opponent. the bout was- abiy 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 Uoth men showed slgiBs'of the ordeal and Anderson then made a,statement to the effect that Sansom -ivas th-o "toughest" pppo; nent he had ever had, and the 'audience certainly agreed with him. Sansom has again ^challenged Anderson for a finished match, each man  to back hlrasclt for $500; two falls out of three and Winner taking all. This bout has been arranged for Wednesdayj April 10th, and will Be a hair-raiser. iWo had some splendid exhibitions of boxing-during the evening. Two :youngsters" started the proceedings. Gien,Jarrett and "iV^B JlcLean, the former,belng given the decision. . The next boift was between two local as-pingnts in Fred Snell and Sharp, tJie latter having Just a shade the bettor. The main feature of the boxing was between Kenneth Sharp of Vulcan and :Ka5^o Brennan of Lethbrldgc fame. It Avas .an easy thing for Brennan but it also opened our eyes to the fastest boxer-we'have sefen around here. He hm 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 '.sporting fans of Lethbrldgc aud> elsewhere. � Viriation of Only 32 Points in His Averages Through Eight Seasons in America � � > o �  �>' Brflth'. � ren.

' ^ The nightly, vlgU undertaken by members of the Board of Trade at the' depot has now been ended. . They report as a result of their work during the ten nights they'have been on duty that ot all the trains passljig through only one failed to stop. This utterly disproves the statement made by. the railway officials. It has also been 'discovered,'or rather learned, that in 3 91G, there were 2054 tickets sold here with a revenue of ?6916;00. In 1917 i^tho number of tickets sold Increased to 2095 arid ;tho revenue was $85^9.
