ADAMS 0 F IS HOME ? : : *: + * o v � ? > LAST NIGHT'S GAMES Jennings and Williams Lose to Evans and Smith But Win Over Wallis and Mercer Al. Rom, victor of many pugilistic arguments in the ring in Leth-bridge the past couple of year*, will step into khaki at. Sarcee camp on April Sth, according to the ruling of Mr. Justice Simmons of the appeal court on M.S.A. matters. Ross1 has been expecting his orders and he received them yesterday. The Lethbridge boxer will go with the best wishes of hundreds of Southern Alberta ring fans. He is one of the gamest fellows who ever stepped into a local ring, and if he comes through the war safe and sound, which we hope he will, he will find a great welcome awaiting him on his return, especially if he continues his boxing activities. Ross should prove a great impetus to the boxing game in the Canadian army. Without a doubt he is the leading middleweight in Canada, and when he gets overseas in the English training camps he will have plenty of opportunity for keeping his boxing science up to date. The best wishes of the fans are with him. F Baseball Clubs That Captured Pennants Displayed Ail-Round Ability The proficiency necessary in many departments of baseball in order lo win pennants is illustrated by comparisons- of the records of 16 .clubs, each a flag winner in its respective league last season. With an occasional exception it will be found that the team which finished first in the league race held a high position in all three of these departments of the play, but a number of the clubs showed the way in two. Giants Are Example. Among the more important leagues the New York Giants, winners of the Two very close games were played in the doubles league last night. Smith and Evans winning two out of three of their series with Williams and Jennings by 10 pins, and the latter duo turning round and winning two out of three from Mercer' and Wallis by the still narrower margin of eight pin3. They won the first and third in this set. 1 (.'vans' was high man in the first game with 576, and had 207 for high game. .Jennings had 502 for the three games. In the second series Jennings was high with 521, with 186 as high single. The big competition is coming on the home stretch, and there is a groat scrap for the premier honors. Last night's scores: Smith .:..... 154 Evans....... 207 361 Williams .. .... 163 Jennings...... 167 330 ..... 186 Williams..... 157 J4K Atlantic City, N.J., Mar. 19.-George Bothner, of New York, champion lightweight wrestler of the world, broke his left leg here last night in a bout with Frank- Rice of Boston.

Frank Moran, who took the count from Fulton in the third round, today voiced this praise of the big Minnesota plasterer. , "While I will say that Fulton is better than Willard," Moran continued, "I am not prepared to say.he is the equal of Jack Johnson. I was in good shape, and have no excuse to offer. I was beaten by a better man. t suppose I am growing a little old. I Jelt my age a little last night when I tried to set a hot pace, and was. met wltft an equally hot pace, but I. shall not retire. I h�.ve my health, and the boys at camp will stand by me. I am going back to Wadsworth and give, the fellows the* beat that's in me. "I hope Willard will give Fred a cliauce. Tf he does there will be a new champion." Fulton declared his showing against Moran proved that he has stamina and Is not afflicted with a "yellow streak." . "Having read a good deal 6t late to the effect that I was possessed of a yellow streak, I went into the ring with that thought ringing in my ears. "Well, i showed them the stuff 1 was made of. 1 stood up and exposed my jaw and let Moran hit me 20 times. I counted the blows. Two or three of . them shook me a little bit, but 1 was j no more scared than if I were sitting in a barber chair reading a sporting I page. I took a big chance in letting a husky fellow pound on me at will for a minute, but it was worth It. I just had to show them, and -I did. i "Moran is a grand fighter, and he was brave to the la;it minute." New York.-Frank Navin, the quiet, i soft-spoken boss of the Detroit Tigers, is the best friend Bill Donovan has in baseball. When Bill had outlived his usefulness as a pitcher for the Tigers he began to indulge in dreams of manage-ing a major league club, and he told Navin of his ambitions. Some four years ago the opening for a new manager in American league ranks presented itself when the Yan-. kaes were sold to Ruppert and Huston by Frank Farrell, and it was through Frank Navin that Wild Willyurii landed the managerial job with the Yanks. Navin belierved in Donovan, and still does. He figured Bill had all the qualifications of a successful manager, and during his regime with the Yanks Bill showed his value as a coach, of young players, particularly the pitchers. But Bill was not born under a lucky star so far as baseball goes, tor the jinx that attached itself to the Yanks the first year he took hold of them never let go while he held the reins, and his passing was only a question of time. Smiling Bill took his dismissal from Colonel Ruppert good-naturedly. There" were no sore spots when Donovan and the colonel parted company, and Bill just' smiled his way out of the office, though he had nothing in sight. When Navin heard that Donovan was through ag manager of the Yanks he decided to take care of his erstwhile star, and he has Bill signed up now as coach and scout for the Tigers, a berth that will be his as long as he cares to continue in the game. Donovan, is immensely popular with the fans in Detroit. His rare good nature won him a life-long home with Tiger rooters while he was pitching for the Detroit club,, and they have never forgotten him. Navin says there isn't a smarter coach of young pitchers in the business than Donovan, and at the recent American league meeting in New York the .Tiger boss declared that he was mighty glad to get Wild Bill back. So Donovan'is one prodigal who returned with a royal welcome awaiting him. Macleod, Mar. 18.-Lieut. W. .1. Adams, who enlisted with the 191st, has returned home. He went overseas in 1915, and after spending a month in England was transferred to the 25th battalion, and went through several of the battles during the time in France, at the Somme, where he was gassed.

St. Louis.-The Cardinals' park is to lose some of Its bleacher seats.. Their number is to be cut down, but . President Branch Rickey says nothing radical will be done. "We have more than'10 times the � number of 25-cent seats at our park i than in some of the eastern parks." j said Rickey, "and we feel that it is j advisable to decrease the number of cheap seats at Cardinal field. ' "As yet we have not decided on ^iny , definite change. If we make one, you can say that there will remain at the Cardinals' park more 25-cent, rather 30-cent, seats than in any park in tho circuit. Whatever change we make will not cause any great protest from tho fans." From the east come rumors that the bleacher seats are to be decreased wherever the fans will stand for it. This i3 expected to apply principally to New York, Boston, Washington and Brooklyn. It is thought that Philadelphia fans will not have much interest in baseball, anyway, and no changes will be made there.
