Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 21, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta "BRINGING UP FATHER" the lethbridge daily herald THUnSDAY. march: 21, 1918 By G.

RS Defeat Vancouver in First Game for Stanley Cup by Score 5-3 DETROIT TIGERS' ' PITCHERSSTILLA NXFORHUGHEY This Year No Exception-Team a Good Run Getter But Poor On Defense If (By Hugh Fallerton.) In military service, 6. Liable to immediate call, 3. Detroit's Tigers lumlsh one of the queerest problems ot baeebaU. For years this team has scored from 38 to 100> runs a season more than any other American cliib league. It aver- ,__________,_________. . ages usually between 4.5 and 5 run^ a final chance to make good, per game, while the average American league club averages 4.1. It is the Createat run manufacturing machine In baseball and has been tor many jrears-yet it cannot win. , Ordinarily any manager ot any league can get a strong detensive team but few fiia get that extra punch and wallop that belongs to Detroit be- ause the tbam'makes many runs, and a rule, it is easier to.pitch for that kind ot a team, because ,a pitcher can take cjiances, knowing that his team can make up runs even If the wortt happens. Yet here is a team averaging -4.5 runs a game last year, which could not hold Its opponents below an average ot 4.7 runs per game. Cant Figure Pitcher*. Jennings has admitted that he is not ft Judge ot pitchers. He has had good pitchers and not achieved results from tbem.' The team has been hit In a vital apot by the enlistment of Ehmke, who. In spite ot his mediocre work last year, at least could-beat Boston and who ought to be much ^better this �eason. Unless Detroit can get pitching that will reduce the average, numbj^r qf runs per game scored by opponents it cannot be - counted as .a permanent factor as, year by year,_it.8 run-making power is falling oft. It p'robably will score 40 more runs this season than any other club In the league, but Its punch is waning. Strong In Outfield. The team Is very strong in the out- field, especially in driving power;' mediocre behind the bat, although better fortified this season than usual, and it needs some bracing on the tlrat base side ot the Infiald. There is a big chance that George Bums, who has proved a capable If not a great first baseman, will be In military ser-j Ice, and that event evidently is Bs-^ pected, since Dressen and ^ue are ready to grab the Job, and Hellman might be brought In Irom the outfield. Young is not a great second baseman, but steady and reliable, and he is dangerous at bat and could be capably understudied by Bob Jones. The effort ot the management, it is evident from the dope, has been to fortify every position on the team against the possibility ot the demands ot th� war. taking away players at the critical moment. Detroit could lose one whole team and then put a respectable one on the field. The other effort has been the annual one ot trying to develop winning Pitchers. Jennings has decided to give his once great Harry Coveleskle "He has Dauas, �3rlck8on, Finneran, Herb Hail, Kalllo, Polsen, Boland Cunningham, Carroll, Jones, and the Bills-^James and Mitchell. Numerically he .has plenty, but In the light ot past performances the aggregation does not look so strong. Jennings Missed Something. It would seem that Jennings lost a great opportunity during the wholesale trading ot the past winter in not swapping a lot of his excess talent, which cannot be used, for one strong pitcher, There were several on the market. Given one strong arm who could pitch forty games and win close to thirty and the Tigers again would loom up with theU- annual challenge of .the champions. It is a team that Is very hatd to dope correctly, as we will see when we reach, the figures, becausp' of the fapt that one strong winning pitcher, backed by the tremendous punch of the, feam, might change It from a second jdtylslon club into a pennant, run nor' up Ih a few weeks." There' Is not a ^Ign among the newcomor^, ot any such a development thus' far,- but It will pay us to watch the Tigers closely during the spring training. HE'S ALRIGHT. Yes, all these things, and more, find worse, I do-I even write bum verse- and yet, I ain't-quite a. hopeless dub, FOR I NEVBH KNOCK THP HOMK BALL CLUB. . BROCK WON.

G'OWDY OVER THE TOP WITH RAINBOW DIVISION OF UNCLE SAM'S BOYS.  Boston, -March 21.-Boston's .legion ot baseball fans was thrilled today when a message' from the tigUtlns front told how "Hank" Gowdy, famous back-stop of the Bostotf graves, and the first player to give up a big salary and enlist as a private In Uncle Samuel's army, had gone over the top with the Rainbow Division in the first drive made by Pershing's forces since their participation in the European war. According to the despatch, he was among the front-rank troops that stormed the Oerinan trenches at Toul. Shortly, after his enlistmegit in an Ohio National, Guard unit," "Hank" was made corporal and then sergeant; ELDERLY MR. MATHEWSON TO PITCH OCCASIONALLY. Cincinnati, March 21.-Christopher Mathewson has aroused Cincinnati fans by warming up in practice at the Reds', training camp down south. "Big Six" says that he doesn't Intend to pitch regularly this year, but that in cases ot emergency he wants to be In condition to enter/the box He seems to think that he can yet stand the strain of several innings now and then when he dldln't use his arm at all la^t season, but in practice this week lie has shown some ot the old speed and curves. ONE PIGHT A MONTH. It is said that Mike O'Dowd will be allowed to fight once a month while he is getting readjr^fov the big tight "over there." He is now a private in one ot the western training camps, but will' be granted a three-day leave when he gets an important match' In either St. Paul or Milwaukee. O'Dowd is a big favorite with officers and men at the training camp. , -.- -------� . e A FAIR TAX BARRIE COLTS FAILED TO,LAND, THE %AC6N.

"The results of the last year have shown (he ability of our seamen to get upon equal terms with tho submarine menace and gradually to gain the upper hand.

Our material resources for this war are already Improved and aro being rapidly augmented while sclentLsta are placing at our disposal means .it offense And defense of which we have been In need.

Wholesale Murder Potrograd, March 21.-(Mali and Empire cable-rWholcsale murder Is now tho normal feature of Russian life. In the small town ot Glukshow, In tho government ot Ghernlgoff, 500 members of the local middle class were massacred in a single night. Ue-talls now come to hand of the latest massacres in Sinferopol and Sebasto-pol, are revealing beyond description. In Sebastopol for instance, the sailors decided to execute a general massacre In two streets (nhabitod by the most well-to-do people In the town. After tho massacre the. bodies were-thrown Into the sea. The widow of ono ot the murdered men asked a diver to go down and bring up tho body of iier husband. A few minutes after immersion tho diver hurriedly pulled hi.s rope and was drawn to the surface. Ho was in a state bordering on Inaon-ity and for a long time could only utter one word-"mooting." The bodies of .the murdered men had been thrown into "the sea, wlth'stoues llnd to their foetfand thtero'wiis a throng; standing upright, swaying under the water. BRITISH GOVT.

In 1914 the number was 1,081,000, and the number In 1917 was calculated at 1,535,000 or an Increase ot very close on half a million cattle or nearly 50 per cent since the beginning of the war. That Is a very satisfactory re suit, and I hope, and 1 know from the working ot the cow bill last year It win, bo continued. 1 By the act we have been able to put into the hands of farmers livestock they would not have been able to obtajn. bat tor it. "I am quite satisfied," commented the minister, "money could be loaned at a higher rate of interest in the province. I am very confident nothing can be ot so much value to the future ot farming In Alberta than the getting of livestock Into tho hands of our tarmers," he.,added, "ho was very pleased to find tJiat the farmers in tho southern, country buying the last two years a great, many flrst-cIass cattle and horses, (indbHtiging Into the province hlgh*cla&8;stock that would lay tho foundation-of successful fai-mlng tpr the f^turo.S'^sf'i " The minister ^concluded by Intorm-ihg the-U'puse,. they had got'tho Information from the \ heftd office ot tho Merchant^ Bank - ft,'day or two ago.
