Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - March 22, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta P*r,F. srx TME LETIIBRIDQBi' DAILY. HERALD FRIDAY, MARCH 22, 1018 JlU-jJBi-H "BRINGING UP FATHER" By G. McManus J Y/HACVb THE MASTER -" I1> THE CKN^V DE*.0 no - vauROAR cot IN the house AND t>yoi_E ALL ^our clothes: 1 BASEBALL BOXING RACING 1-SPORT HOCKEY GOLF BOWLING Philadelphia is All Worked Up Over Young Lew Tendler Who is Picked to Meet Benny Leonard Philadelphia, March 22.-This peaceful Quaker city thinks it has a new lightweight champion in Lew Tendler, the fighting newsboy. Bonny Leon-aril read3 every line about the speedy local .battler and keeps- in-condition. New York's world champion'is expecting a challenge from Lew. He will not he caught napping. Tendler has two great performances to his credit recently that have boosted his stock and put him in Una lor a real battle with the champion. The first is the knockout ;of Tommy Truhey, the Patterson lad, and the other the*'defeat of Peter' Hartley, the Durable Dane, so dur-ab e in fact, that he pad weathered the gale with the best of the llght*-w^sii and had never been stopped' until Tendler beat him so badly die referee stopped tieL)igu.t. As a result of'these victories Lew' Tendler has given up selling, papers to devote all his tim� in line for a championship match. Tendler Is Only Nineteen. Although only nineteen years of age, this Tendier has met every boxer of ni:y prominence in the country with thj exception of Benny Leonard. His nex; battle will be with Irish Patsy Cline here on April 2. Every time the lightweight champion steps into a local ring Tendler is at the ringside a very busy onlooker. Lew is by no means a Benny Leonard in cleverness. He is jiist a ahifty little southpaw who is willing to take a wallop or deliver ope.  This was proved in his batiSes with Willie Jackson and John . Dundee, both of whom he has defeated. In his scrap with the Bronx lightweight he was floored for the count in the first round from one of Jackson's murderous righthand wallops, and if it. had not been-for the bell Tendler, �would have been counted out; but through the good' work of his seconds and advisers he managed to stall the second round through, and thus Tendler succeeded in outpointing the sturdy.Bronx warhorse. Beating Johnny Dundee in six fast rounds,is another thing many other battler^ failed to do, including the champion, Benny Leonard. Before Dundee faced Tendler be was heralded as Philadelphia's lightweight king, and it wa3 also believed here there wasn't a possible chance for a Quaker to defeat the Scotch Wop. Hearing this comment spread, Young Tendler started out on hi3 rampage. Thai was in 1917. Since, that time he has defeated Franlue Callahan, Willie Jackson twice, Johnny Dundee twice, Rocky Kansas and Frankle Britt. Fighting Three Year*. Tendler started his fighting career In 1913 as a bantamweight.. When he wa3 in that class he boxed and defeated Pete Herman before the latter was champion, after six rounds of terrific fighting. Finding he could not do the bantamweight any longer, Tendler decided to look for bigger game. He boxed all the featherweights that the managers were able to Eecuro for him and then started in to fight lightweights. People were beginning to think Tendler had a very weak punch. In the last six months Lew decided to develop a wallop. He trained and punched the bag for weeks, and then he demonstrated that he should be well up in the "wallop list" by the way he beat down the tough Patterson youth. Tommy Touhey, and forcing Hartley to stop. IS G. ALEXANDER WOitl THE $22,000 That is Figure He W*nts To Hurl~BaU For the Chicago' Cubs It is understood Grover Cleveland Alexander wants 122,000-this includes salary" anil bonus-to pitch some 30-odd games of baseball for the Chicago Cubs this season. 'Alex, believes he is worthy that. Perhaps he. is, but the figures are-disconcerting. If the Chicago club were to break even on that ?i2,000 in 30 games it would mean that Alex, would have to coax 178,000 two-bit admissions through the turnstiles, figuring the quarter ticket as ^the price unit and conceding .;the rival club half the receipts of each same, according to the bylaws and constitution of the National league. The Quarter ticket : is lower ih-an average, to be sure, yet at 50 cents Alex, wotild have to draw 88,000 fans into the various ball parks over the circuit. To draw 176,000 fans the Chicago club needs must average 5,866.e6 attendance to the game, which is higher than normal. The Chicago club would "get off the nut," as they aay, so far as Alexander is concerned, with 176,000 quarter admissions, and yet there would be the right fielder, the second baseman and some two dozen other players whose salaries do not terminate when the big aide-winder pitches. If, on the other hand, Alex, alone could pitch the Cubs into a pennant -which is unlikely-he easily would b� worth the $22,000 he asks. It would appear that if he Is enough of a factor to make the CubB a one-two-three proposition .the >22,QO0 would not bo thrown to the birds. The margin of difference in gate receipts between a contender and a team hopelessly out of the running will pretentiously pass the $82,000 mark. DEMPSEY TO MEET RILEY. Joplin, March 22.-Jack Dempsey, heavyweight boxer, last night agreed to-meet Tom Riley in a 12-round bout i here March 25. Dempsey had baen matched with Fred Fulton, but the match was cancelled when Fulton's manager agreed for him to meet Jess Willard July 4. Pitcher Jim Bagby of the Indians is a holdout. Last season Bagby was the leading Blab artist of the team. WORLD'S HOCKEY SERIES SATURDAY Frank Patrick Says Only Two Millionaire Players Showed Form in First Game Toronto, March 21.-Art Ross and Bob Meldrum of Montreal, will be the officials in the second Stanley Cup game which will be played on Saturday night. The Torontos today are confident of winning the series in three 'straight games and thus duplicating the feature of the Blues of some years ago. -Comment on F|rst Game. Toronto,. March .31.-Frank Patrick, president of the Paclfic":Coast league stated after* "the game last night that in hia opinion only two of the Vancouver'men played their game last night. He was perfectly satisfied with the officials and would be glad to have the'ra again for the nest game under N. H. L. rules on Tuesday night. Toronto News. "It was Vancouver's worst exhibition of the season according to President Patrick who is at p. loss to account for the indifferent form displayed by his champion* In his opinion only Mackay and perhaps Lehman performed up to the mark. "Cyclone Taylor was more or less a disappointment." Vancouver World. The Vancouver World says: "Vancouver hockey fans are not the least bit discouraged over the showing of the Vancouver team in the game at Toronto last night. Close followers of the game remember the showing df Victoria in the season of 1915 at Toronto when they were defeated by a 5 to 2 score and came back strong and feel confident that the Vancouver team will be right in the element in the game under their own rules and with the experience gained in the first brush with the eastern champions should emerge on the long end of t'ae scoring in the next contest." Mall and Empire "If the first Stanley Cup game which was played iast night at the Arena is a criterion there is little doubt that the trophy will be added to the honors that the Toronto champions'of the N. H. J/, have gathered. Vancouver, champions of the Pacific Coast league, and Stanley Cup holders, by right of victory over Seattle, will have to play a better brand of hockey if they wish to retain the cup. The game was a very ragged exhibition and the Blue Shirts won "under wraps" by the score of 5 to 3. The Toronto World. "Toronto checked them closely at all times and the Pacific Coast champions were not. able to devise any system with the three forwards to get away from the checking and bore in on the net. The visitors are clean und fast, but have not the dash of our own Blue Shirts with the six men a side. "On Saturday night under western rules, it is expected that the National Hockey champions will find considerable trouble in adapting themselves to the seven man stuff and the no off-side rule in centre ice." right in and took two out of three from Raymond and Aird, winning the round on total points by the narrow margin of five pins.

Jack Hendricks,-jas minor league manager, always cairied^lngs with a high hand, and' fr&zri' it newspaperman's viewpoint ha&! the gift of having a "nose for iews." That is to say, Hendricks knew news, and he made it if there wasn't any*"sIn consequence he^has been the best advertising pilot of-iany organization, in which he has operated. , " I . . Taken by and large the present crop of major league managers is nothing to toss anyone into ecstacles. It is our opinion that right now the new .manager of the St. Louis Cardinals Is a better field executive � than 50 per :cent. of the birds who are getting by in similar positions In the majors. And he will grow better with experience under the "big tent." Hence, if they want� to try the "buaher's rush" on Hendricks, as they did on Clarence Rowland when he first came into the majors, they will have picked the wrong man, as they did with Rowland. Hendricks is brainy and two-handed. While he has had personal differences with some players who have been under him, none ever questioned his ability. He has won pennants in three or four minor leagues, and that is more than the average major league manager could do.

Mrs. McKinncy advocated the erection of an institution in Alberta and made a strong plea for more humane treatment of the women of the streets who should lie classed as mental defectives. Dr. Stanley in seconding her resolution urged that they  should keep the public conscience alive on thi3 problem. 7 Miss MacAdams said that three things made it of practical interest to take care of the mentally defective, one was that, no amount of education could make them norma] and another was the .hereditary character of the problem. Then they had the cases in which segregation was absolutely necessary. Premier Stewart said if the government found it necessary they would make special monetary provisions to deal with the question but they had first of ail to find the numbec they would have to take care of.

ACT INTRODUCED Again To Be Considered By Senate-McKenzie Bowell Eulogized Ottawa, March 22.-In the senate yesterday afternoon, Sir James Loug-hced introduced the bill to consolidate and amend the Railway Act.

Sir James said that it was his sad duty to recall to the senate that three members of the upper chamber had passed away since last session. The first to go was Senator Sproulo, who had gone to rest after a busy and useful lite, forty years of which had been spent in public life. Following his death. Sir Mackenzie Bowell, a great Canadian who had seen Canada grow from a group of small entities to the prosperous country she is today, had passed away. Few members of the senate live to such a ripe age as had Sir Mackenzie and he left behind him a record for activity and useful work. The other member of the senate to die during the recess was Senator Gillmer, a man of long and honorable business experience of a diameter, which endeared him to his associates. Senators Bostock. Landry and Clor-an, aJso spoke in oYmjniendation of Sir Mackenzie Bowell. * Little four-year-old Bessie was putting on her shoes for the first time and got them exchanged.
