Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - March 20, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGB DAILY HERALD WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20, 1918 "BRINGING UP FATHER" By G. McManus BASEBALL BOXING RACING SPORT HOCKEY GOLF BOWLING Local B. B. Team After Cards Will Then Play the Edmontons Local baeketballer* will have to secure their amateur cardt before they play Edmonton. That I* the ruling from the A.A.A.U., and the boya are going to make application without delay. "We expect no trouble in securing them," said one of the members of the team this morning. George McKlllop will not be able to get his card owing to the fact that he is "Y" physical Instructor, but the rest of the boys should have no difficulty. The team Is going to Edmonton as soon as everything is squared away which will be about Easttr. Edmonton are considered certain winners in the series with Calgary, and Lethbridge will thus play off for the provincial championship as representative winner of the teams In this district. Amateur Trapshooting Association Has Membership of Over 60,000 The American Amateur Trapshoot-ers' association, of which Lieutenant John Philip Soue'j. i3 president, ,was organized in December, 1915. It is composed of amateur trapshoot-ers, pledged to the policy of advancing the Interest of individual amateur trapshooters, and of local trapshooting clubs. In the two years of its existence the association has made remarkable progress. V During 1917 213 gun clubs applied for affiliation with the A. A. T. A., bringing the total number of affiliated clubs up to 1602. These clubs represent a total rntmbersnip of over 60,000 men and women, who are Interested in the sport of trapshooting. During the year 1516 individuals joined the association. The A. A. T. A. has been worked up so well that it now has organizations in 47 states, six Canadian provinces, in Alaska and Hawaii. 52 Canadian club3 are enrolled. The officers of the association besides Mr. Sousa are Dr. Horace Betts of Wilmington, De'-> an* Charles W. Billings of Oceanport, N.J., first and second vice-presidents, and C. C. Craham, secretary and treasurer. The president of each affiliated state association is also a national vice-president. To encourage the Individual shooter to improve his scores and to raise his average the American Amateur Trap-shooters' association offers a series of proficiency medals, which to win the shooter must turn in a certain number of scores of a certain average in each class. A bronze medal is awarded in the 75 per cent, class, a German silver medal in the eighty per cent, class, a sterling silver medal in the S3 per cent class, a 10k gold medal In the 90 per cent class and a 14k solid gold medal in the 95 per cent class. During 1917 a total of 1049 proficiency medals were awarded by the association for scores made in club shoou; 545 new contestants entered the A. A. T. A. medal race during the year. The plaas of the A. A. T. A. for 1918 are broader in scope and will accomplish more than ever before the purpose of the association-to encourage regular club shooting and to stimulate increased:proficiency on the part of individual shooters. The medal plan has been revised so as to allow more members to take an active part in the competition, and a 98 per cent solid gold medal is offered for the first time. One of the chief arguments in favor of the A. A. T. A. is that the contest tor association medals add Interest to club shoots. BOXING GAME PROSPEROUS. Qood Bouts Are Being Staged In Oitles of Mississippi River District. Down in what is known as the Tri-City district along the Mississippi river in Illinois and Iowa, the boiing game is undergoing a spoil of prosperity right, now that stamps that section as one of the pugilistic centres of the middle we3t. Rock Island, 111., and Davenport, Iowa, are taking the lead in a revival of boxing, and some mighty good scraps are being staged In that vicinity. The sport in Rock Island is in the hands of capable officials, who see that it is run in a business-like manner, "iiabe" Meanor runs the shows and Jack Tighe, an old-time baseball man, is one of bis main backers. ' At Davenport the sport is Just beginning to open up after several dormant years. The last show in Davenport whs in 1307, when Packey Mo- Farland and Kid Herman, a brace of Chicago scrappers, staged a 15-round bout. This scrap aroused the ire of the governor to suoh an extent that he ordered out the militia to stop it. The militiamen occupied ringside seats, but did not interfere, and Captain Kulp, in charge of the company, was afterward courtmarttuleo,. Ben Hutchinson, however, is running a new club in Davenport that is organized under the membership plan. The club is said to have the backing of the authorities and to have reached a membership of 2500. The first bout put on was between Johnny Xoye of Minneapolis, and Charley Scully of Chicago, a few nights ago, and it was successful. The revival of boxing in the Tri-Clty district may eventually take some of the Chicago patronage away from bouts at Racine and Milwaukee, which have been the Mecca of Chicago fight fans for many years. .  JUST RECEIVED A Shipment of Patches for the Marvel Junior : Vulcanizer : Arrangements Practically Made -Big Bout at Drumheller Tonight There is. a strong possibility that Young Al. Koss will put on the gloves in a ring encounter at least once more, before he goes to Sarcee C.imp. Harry Hudson is now in Moose Jaw and all arrangements are practically made for a return match between Koss and Frankie K.O. Bremian there about April 10th. I� they come together Moose Jaw fans will certainly see a great mil!. The two boys are well matched, but P.oss Is of the opinion that he could get a decision over the Detroit pug this time. There mill here will be remembered for a long time as the fastest bout ever staged in Lethbridge. Brennau and Joe Grimm of Drumli?ller are picked to meet tonight at Drumheller. Brennau is a big favorite, though Grimm is 20 pounds heavier. Billy Miller and K. O. Brennan will mix at Vulcan Good Friday afternoon. Local fans will remember Miller as the welterweight who went six fast rounds, here with Andy Russell as a semi-wind-up to the Tait-Whitey go last October. The Edmonton Journal sport writer commenting on the. Tait-Al-lison bout, says: "In addition to his title of Canadian lightweight boxing champion, Clonie Tait is now the lightweight champion of the State of Iowa, if Neal Allison, whom he outpointed Thursday night at Lethbridge, had formerly any claim to that proud title. On the same line of reasoning, however, a certain Rocky Kansas of Buffalo, would be the rightful champion of Canada, as he handed Clonie an artistic trimming on the shores of Lake Erie recently. Boxing and wrestling titles are queer auimules, and the only ones of any moment are those prefixed by the word ''world's" At that the native son had quite a contest at Lethbridge and in the second round Clonie was floored by a left hook to the jaw. Tait war, back on his feet before the referee started counting, keeping his opponent at arm's length with his straight lofts. According to Lethbridge critics the bout was a no-decision affair, arid the blows of both boxers lacked steam."

Toronto, Mar. 20.-"We expect to go through the full game without change unless it is -for a penalty," remarked Frank Patrick, president of the coast hockey loague, in regard to tonight's Stanley Cup game between Vancouver and Toronto.

F, E John A. Drake, Famous in Racing Circles 20 Years Ago Busy Again Xew York, March 20.-For the first time in more than a decade, the famous colors of John A. Drake; the light bins and gold, will be seen on the local race-tracks this season. The western sportsman, who in the halcyon days of the turf, before the repeal 6f the' Percy-Gray law irr 1908, owned and raced some of the greatest thoroughbreds in America, has reentered the sport with two imported two-year-olds as a starter: The Drake horses 'are Midas II, by McDonald II, ouf of Mary Louise III, and an unnamed colt by Light Brigade and Panne. Phil Cliinn, the Kentucky horseman, bought them for him in England last year, and Mr. Drake thinks so much of them that he has entered them ill many juvenile stakes. !" For the last three or four years Mr. Drake has been a daily visitor at the .Metropolitan tracks. He made many-wagers, but they never were large enough to cause any excitement, such as in the old days, when he kept the patrons of the sport on the qui vive, awaiting his wagers on a race. Mr. Drake loves a thoroughbred, and has always been an admirer of a champion. It was common gossip on the tracks last year that he was a part owner of the Kentucky stable, the nominations of which always have been made by Mr. Chinn. A Plunger of Old. In the old days of the turf, Mr. Drake was probably the most conspicuous racegoer in America. With the late John W. Gates, he won and lost fortunes on the success or defeat of a single horse. Time and again it was reported that their winning on a single event extended into six figures, but invariably both declared that the reports pi their winnings had been grossly exaggerated. Some of the thoroughbreds which carried the Drake silks will live forever in turf history, for thoy earned undying fame by defeating the best horses in the country in some of the richest and most historic classes. In 1902 he won the two most coveted fixtures on the American turf. His Wyeth raced home in front of a big field in the American Derby in Chicago, and his two-year-old Savable won the Futurity at Sheepshead Bay-by a head after one of the greatest races run for the famous classic. Each of these fixture- wa.-, worth many thousands of dollars, and it was reported at the time that the Drake-Gates combination had wagered heavily on each of Uicir winners. In one day at Chicago his colors dashed home in front on four horses. Jackcy Garner i.inied them to victory on Rjumiels, Kebo, Wea and Ireland. While a score of the Drake thoroughbreds earned rich purses and fame, it was Ort Wells which was considered his best. This colt was one of the speediest and samesi thoroughbreds bred in this country. It was in 11104 that Mr. Drake Bold out his stable at Morris Park, and it was then that Dave Johnson made the best investment of his career. Mr. Johnson purchased Roseben, which made him a fortune. Later Mr. Drake raced Grapple, .Metropolitan handicap winner; Ort Wells, Broadcloth, Ed. Ball, Vinegar Bill and Ponryhn. On the last-named horse at Belmont Park in 1905 he won $40,000 at odds of 9 to 2. DECISION TO PHIL BLOOM. New Haven.- Phil Bloom, Brooklyn, X.

Colo., March 10.-Harry Brewer of Denver was awarded the decision over Benny McNeill, featherweight of England, at the end or 10-round bout here lust nl�ht. z IS DISQUALIFIED Now York. Mar. 10.-Wladeck Zbysz-ko, of Poland, was disqualified in his wrestling match with Edwin "Strang-ler" Lewis, of Louisville, Ky, at Madison Square Garden here tonight. Lewis had obtained a head hold and Zbyszko butted Lewis on the jaw. knocking him unconscious. The time of the bout was 37 minutes, 25 seconds. NCREASEPRODUCT'N (l'rom Our Own Correspondent) Leavitt, March 18.-On Friday, Mar. 8. tlie Amusement Committee of Leavitt gave a reception to tho Leavitt Brass band. The entire evening was spent in games, refreshments and Its- SIR THOMAS IS HOPEFUL. Sir Thomas Lipton, perennial challenger for, the America's cup, consistent loser and good sportsman, has not abandoned hope of eventually capturing the famous trophy. In fact, the Britlish yachtsman already is laying plans to send Shamrock I IV, after the coveted prize as soon as J the war ends. I Captain Walter M. Marks, Sir Thorn-1 as' representative, arrived in an Amsr- j lean port recently with instructions', to 'inspect the cup challenger, which j has been laid up in the Erie basin | slnco the postponement of the races j of 1914. Captain Marks is to report | to the owner as to her condition. i This action on the part of Sir Thomas might possibly be construed on his part as a belief that the war will not last very much longer and that the race sot for 1014 may be staged next tall. ' Shamrock IV. arrived here August 17, 1914, having left Falmouth on July 21. The boat dodged German war vessels on the way over and finally put into Bermuda on August 11 tat safety. A few days later she continued her voyage and reached New York safely. Then came the war and all concerned decided a cup race under the circumstances was out of the question. Shamrock therefore was laid up in the Erie basin and has since been there. It is probable that in the event of another race for the cup new defenders will have to be constructed. VANCOUVER MILLIONAIRES ARRIVE IN TORONTO "FIT." COMMERCE (From Our Own Correspondent) Commerce, March 18.-"The Best Ever," was tho verdict given by those who attended the free "Hard Times" dance given here last Wednesday. Although there was' not as large a number in attendance as on format- occasions, yet tho floor was filled to capacity and every one had a good time. "Hard Times" were depicted on a large number present, although there were some, who apparently had forgotten the* nature of the dance, whose appearance .betokened prosperity. They, however, paid for their prosperous bearing in the form of a fine, the minimum being twenty-five cents. Prizes weft awarded to Mrs. Pacock and Mr. Johnson, Miss Gadsalvo and Mr. Gripp, Mrs. Joel and Mr. Brown. These were presented by Mr. Chapman in his excellent manner. The prizes also bore the semblance of "Hard Times." About twelve o'clock the supper waltz was ^called, after which coffee and sandwiches, ice cream and eake were served. The floormaster, Mr. Weignntl, performed his duties in his usual excellent manner, while the music by Mr. and Mrs. Dunning and Mr. Green was rendered to the great satisfaction of all present. It was with regret that about two o'clock the signal for departure was given by the familiar strain, "Home, Sweet Home." This clo-ses the social club dances for the season, and the cen started to see that Leavitt produces more ho^s this year than ever before. Barley is a sure crop here and every farmer has expressed his intention of putting in every available acre of wheat land that he has and then planting barley on every foot of- tillable land left, so that Leavitt may head the list in the hog production campaign advertised by thu Dominion Department of Agriculture. The farmors' slogan tills year in Leavitt is: "Wheat i und Hogs.'' To aid tliom in this work the women of the district have planned a new scheme in connection with their weekly meetings in Ilellef Society ami Primary. Previous years have required cither tho men or at least their teams to stop work and drive the ladies to these meetings during the week. Now they plan to arrange for these two extra meetings on Sunday so that the men will not be hampered in any way during their spring work. George Mathews, with his Keystone drilling outfit, Iuib succeeded in getting another excellent well in this district. The lucky farmer this time is Alfred Leavitt. He has the vary best of water and an unlimited supply or it. This makes the third well for Mr. Matthews in this district, since last fall, and two o� them have been flowing wells. Toronto, March 19.-Over thirty thousand people attended the six games played at the Arena last week, i including the Allan cup games, and in ! tho neighborhood of $25,000 was taken 1 in at the gates, according to the an-1 nouncement of Manager Querrie. It , was the greatest week in the history i of hockey locally, this or any other I season. > i HELD UP BY STRIKE Buenos Aires, Mar. 10.-Grain shipments to the allies from the port of ; Rosario today have been hampered by | a strike.
