A great crowd -was tremendously enthusiastic uhea the bell racg for acd-all 118 Vic's vere oftj ihe see the shoulders ol their sup- porters. PLAYED OFF THEIR FEET. The Vic's simply played the Grand- ir.jre outfit off their feet. The visit- ors fought gamely, their captain, KitchEe, especially so, but they were in the first five minutes of tie match, and what is more, knew it. Their attack at times savored oi the desperate, but they could not pene- trate the Vic's great delete. The the Vic's forwards was so strong flat few of the east- erners' rushes after the first ten min- u Us vent as far "as the actual de- fence, and still fewer went past them. With McCulloch in goal playing a sterling game, tfce deiecce. -was all b-jt impenetrable.

The half time score was 3 to 0 favor of the Vic's, and the teams wet favor of the Vic's, amd Hie teams were tierefore equal, so iar as scar ing was concerned, in lie second half. Hut the play was all to the Vic- toria's, and only Gauthier's greet WOTS in goal, and Ritchie's defensive play, neld the score down. GEORGE BOXING GIVES PATRONAGE London.

Neier before las Magrath had more ol them, and if a league is formed in the south a local aggregation will certainly le ia the miming. Caidston 'has already organized, and it is rumored that they are de- sirous of drawing up a scheuirfe ol games for the. summer. In the. past Raynonil has had lootball aspira- and it is more than likely thai the. soccer fans hi the. sister town to the tast would welcome tion of a South Alberta league. ATHLETfCS Coach Mercer oi the. M. I. A. track team, will shortly begin" activities the slate, the racing world once morel gave a grand total pf 36 goals attention to the cest in their two matches. Tie contest to- night was lie best seen so far duties the tournament.. The ice was faster anil as a result the men played de- cidedly better hockey than they Did in auy of the other games. It was particularly lively in tie second per- iod, when it looked us though tie, experts from the far west were going to win the game.- At the end ot the, first period the score stood 8 to in faror of Quebec. Although they kept up their good the third thpy could not' tjuite land-a vic- tor j. yesterday was refused permission by Mayor Carter H.

The'win tiers will represent' the Canadian stale.? in tie final gram meet of the whole church in Sal' La'ie City. Mercer is optimistic this season, and he already has visions o! cups and trophies coming his way. THE LETHBRIDGE BREWING AND MALTING CO., LIMITED is us _. lace en the Indianapolis n'.o- lor speedwav, .May 30. This event gives promise of tha greatest contest in motor his- lorv, with no than 6 cations bat- tling for supremacy. As last- year, the foreign seems litely to rule a lavorite over 1he tome aggregation. Tte. preiecce of such men as Doillot, Guyot and fhristiaens In the lie icVadiig raats is held sufficient to insure a European victory. GBEAT FBEXCH DRIVERS ENTERED Boillot, for Instance, is admittedly tte greatest driver oi the time, a man who has won more hij events than he has fingers aid toes, among them the. two Grand I'rix races o! 1913 ac'd 1913. This entrant alpco is- thought capaMe o! vanquishing the entire American field. And then there are others.. Goux is tut' a slight shade behind Boillot in hrilliancy. Both driving Peugeot cars, tie pair usually finish- es one-two. What Gous is capable of, tte last 500-niile race, which he won hands down, conclusively demonstrat- ed. CHASSAGXE SPEED KING Chassagne comes as the undisputed speed ting ot Europe, having covered more ia an hour thai any other human. One.hundred and twelve did he reel off in his Sunbeam on the BrooVlancIs track recently be- rore .the hour mart was 'reached. Driving z car of the sahie mate at Indianapolis, he is expected to push the other entrants to the limit. Guyot is one of 'the coolest and craftiest drivers in tht game. Last year at Le Mans'j wberc a second edi- tion "of the Giacd Prix ,te annually run, he was-but'barely cosed out for by his team-mate, tiablol, with an average of 76.8, the Euro- pean hieh water Guyot will drive the same car at Indianapolis te har.dled ai Le >ians. Christiaeas, who will compete in an Excelsior, is a lesser light, Jess iormldable. His chief claim to fame is his uncanny ability la whisk around comers, an art at which he has no peer. He is a pilot who will bear lots of watching. American field is as yet in 4he making, and therefore, cot subject to much comment. To date, Burrpan and Cooper loom up as the chiel defend- ers, lloth these men ate thought cap- able oi holding their own with any- thinj the otter side ol the water can jroduce, providing their cars star.d the gati. On-tbis, the race will hinge. THE LETHBRIDGE BREWING MALTING COMPANY, Limited PHONE 554 GILMORE ENOUGH PLAYERS Chicago, III.. Marcb NATIONAL TENNIS TITLE WON BY MARIE WAGNER New York.
