Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 24, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY, MARCH 24, 191 (I ^^^W^Ti gi,�^fflrRrDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE THREE PICKING TilliE of the Willard-Moran Contest Men of Ring Say of Outcome' What Some Prominent Men James J. Corbett (noted as a picker of losers)-.Tbbs by a inllo. Moran liRs a chancQ, but only ii ellm one. Wll-lard has (.lie roach, otrongtli and can {itinch. ThoBO q,uaIlllcatlons make me Ray without hesitancy or qualincatlon the one word-WlUard. 1 cannot aeo Moran at all, Strangler Lewis-Moran hasn't a chance. Wlllard Is , a strong man. I Aveigh 210 pounds and couldn't do a tiling with hini. And ho can punch Eomu, bullevo inc. Joe ChoynskI (the only man to knock out Johnson besides Wlllard)- Wlllard should defeat Moran decisively, but I don't look for a knockout. I don't think Frank can ever ahako up Joss. Wlllard to my mind Is not a real champion but, then, there is little class to either man. James J. Jeffries-Moran has little Chance to stop Wlllard. To my mind Jess Is the Ideal champion and Is in AO danger of losing tlic title. Bob FItzslmmons-Wlllard. with his great reach and 210 pounds of weight has a natural advantage over all other present heavies, Jess looked as fresh after his (Ight with Cunboat Smith us when ho started, and during the milling Smith hit him with anything he wanted at will. So Wlllard can assimilate so much piinlshmenf, that I can hardly see where the challenger has a chance, Tom Sharkey-I think Moran will defeat Wlllard, tor Jloran is much the cleverer of the two,. And I think that Frank will deliver a knockout bo-fore the ten rounds are over. Size doesn't count, I was 5 feet 8 and only weighed 177 pounds when I mot Jim Jeffries at Coney Island, Ho was 6 feet 1 and weighed 228 pounds, A man weighing 190 pounds Is big enough to lick anybody, Charles Harvey (former secretary of the state athletic commission)- The last time I saw WlUard ho was a boob. They tell me, though, that he has' Improved greatly. I don't know. Bee me later. Billy Rocap-What 1 have seen of Jess makes me think that he Isn't In the best of shape. Certainly he is not conditioned as he was at Havana. George Consldlne-I can only see Wlllard. You know I was the llrst man to pick Wlllard as the coming champion, even when he fought Carl Morris. However, Moran has three great points In his favor. He can take an awful beating, has a good head-as good as Tommy Ryan's-and Iu'.k a great right hand. But he is easy .n hit. Coffey hit him at will, and let ine toll you he hurt Frank, too. Billy Gibson-It looks like Moran to me for certain. He Is a better ilghter than Wlllard ever was and I think he'll win by the knockout route, Sam H. Harris-Well, I sure would b,9 tickled to see Moran win. Any young man fighting under the handicap of height and. reach, which he will do when he enters the ring against Wlllard, deserves the good wishes of all good sports. So I'm rooting that he lands a haymaker, but I'm Inclined to think the bout will go tlie limit, Jim Coffey-(Shakes his head north and south very violently,) 8,000101 m ON BIG BOUI Chicago, March 21.-I'rohably the biggest wager over laid on a ton round no dncision- boxing conlcst was made Thursday in Ciiicago when $1�,0()0 was slacked up against $10,000 on the result of the battle between .Iosh Wlllard and Frank .Moran at New York tomorrow night. Hurry .Molr, of the Morrison liotcl, took tlio Wlllard end, nlqclng a corlinod choiiuo for $1S,000 in tile hands of the Htakclioloder, while Kdiniind Allen, former Wanlon of the slutn penitentiary at .lolit^t, wagered on .Moran and handed the Klakoholder a che(|uc for $10,OUO, ***  *t* ** *4* ** O BIG BASKETBALL GAME TONIGHT AT Y. M, C, A,- FREE ADMISSION A basketball encounlor full of life is billed for the Y. M. C. A. this evening, commencing at 8 o'clock. Knox Dig Brothers are scheduled to try conclusions with Lund's lioar-cats. A name like the latter should be a drawing card in itself, but the game promises more than curiosity over a name. There is a keen rivalry between the contenders, and with the best basketball talent in the city in action a fast and furious game is assured. Don't miss It. It Is free. : ? : : : : : : : : : : > : > '> ; : : > : : > : ? > ? ? ? : ? ? ? ? ? ? : > : : .;.  � > RECORD BREAKER ? ? : ? ? : : ? ? ? ? ? ? > ? > ? : ? HOW THEY COMPARE ?

PHILLIES AGAIN TRIM CUBS St. Petersburg, Pla., March 2.'?.- Outlilt two to one, the Philadelphia Nationals today offset the superior attack of the ChlcaKO Nationals by fast fielding and won their fourth straight exhibition game from Tinker's men, 4 to 3. aiiree fast double plays stop-pod the Cubs at critical moments. Toronto, March 23.-Whether or not Oeorge Goiilding, of Toronto, will be allowed the record ho hung up In New York last week' is a matter of conjecture. There is no doubt about the time. Ho travelled the two miles In 13.37, clipping one and one-llflh seconds from his own world's figures, but one of the Judges declared after the race that the great walker ran the last 25 yards. This judge was Herman Obertubesslng, the handi-capper of the .Metropolitan district. Walked Fairly �UHiile Obertubesslng made his claim after other ofllcials who were on the lloor near the finish said Gouldlng did., not make a miss until he had passed the dockers at the tape, Frederick W. Rubien, chairman of the A. A. U. record committee, said that he would make no decision until he had' thoroughly Investigated the case. Hundreds of spectators, many of them athletic experts, who were near the tape, were positive that the Canadian walked every step .of the route. NEXT GAME SATURDAY NIGHT Tho next game between the Cana-dlens and Portland Rosebuds is scheduled tor tomorrow night, Tho fourth contest Is marked for Tuesday night. One team has to win three contests before the fate of the Stanley cup is settled, What Is a It is a long, mild Havana-filler Cigar with rounded head and end very blunt 3 for 25c-^ The reason for the blunt end is to give you an easy, mild, cool smoke.

Go At it Hard New York, March 23,-.less Willard wont through a hard grind today. Ho put in a full session with the pulleys, and repeated his shadow boxing. Then he took on Heraple, Rodel and Walter Monahan for two rounds each. There was no playful tapping In any of the rounds, and all three of his sparring partners felt the stings of Wiilard's jabs, jolts and hooks, much more frequently than they liargalued for. The champion never looked In better con-Idition than when he finished this afternoon. rvioran Looks Fit Moran is on edge, but he did not seem to be much interested when he went through some light work before the movie cameras In the gymnasium today. Moran's training partners are well pleased with the challenger's condition. Willie Lewis, wlio had charge of Moran in his training for his fights on both sides of the Atlantic, said today: "I never saw Frank look so well or in such splendid condition before any of his previous battles. He is stronger, more vigorous and vastly more confident than when he trained for his last two bouts with Coffey,.and what is more, his hands are in fine shape, which was not the case when he met Coffey last January. I look for him to win sure." There is a question whether the Maniuis of Queensb.ury rules or the New York state athletic rules will prevail in the bout Saturday night. The Queensbury rules are more open. Great Throng With more than S5 per cent, of the 11,000-odd tickets sold, it is becoming more evident every hour that the con-tost will be witnessed by the representative assemblage of boxing enthusiasts ever In attendance at a boxing contest in this country. Owing to the high price of seats attendance at the bout is beyond financial reach of the average followers of tho glove game. Their places have been taken, however, by sport adherents who seldom attend boxing bouts, except those between topnotchers. Speculators Busy While all the seats have not as yet been sold, the best of tho Jiigh-prlced ] ones are gone. Some have already' made their appearance in the hands of speculators. Seats which originally cost $25 are being offered at from ?50 to $75 each and are finding eager purchasers. Tho $20 ,and $15 coupons are going at double their face .value. There lb likely to bo a great rush for the $3 and $5 seats when they are put on sale tomorrow morning and it is certain that tho speculators will have , many representatives In the lines to the box office. Those that -will fall to their lot will undoubtedly find a ready sale at 100 per cent, advance among the aloveuth-hour arrivals, Another Live Session Wlllard was unusually lively on his feSt * in his training yesterday. His shadow boxing drew cheers from a big gathering of boxing fans which filled .the entire floor and galleries of the Pioneer club's ,arena, Hla bonding and sitting up exercises wero done gracefully and he allowed his training staff to hurl the medicine ball, against his abdomen with all their might, whllo he merely grinned good-, naturedly afteV each shock, Willard Pounds Partners Wlllard took on his three sparring partners for two rounds each, George Rodel and Jack Hemple wore buffeted around by the champion, who put plenty of steam Into some of hla blows. He made matters even' more Interesting, however, when .Walter Monahan got Into the ring, Jess evidently had not forgotten Monalian'ft left-hand smash which raised a lump on his head last Mopi day. The mark: of tho blow did not entirely disappear and the big foUow got no Uttlo satisfaction In stinging Monahan. While his defence la still faulty, Wlllard looks and movos ilko^ a thoroughly trained athlete'lind tliere FRED ROBSON Toronto speed merchant who broke the world's skatln.t! record for fifty yards, 4 4-5 seconds, at the Queen City, on artificial Ice.

London, March 17.-The King and Queen visited the Canadian. Conval-, escont Home at Bushy Park. This Is the second or tljird visit paid by her Majesty, who in conversation -wlth^ Nursing Sister Sasgraln, made the buk-gestlon that wherever practicable; wounded men of the British race from all parts of the Empire should be treated In general hospitals, rather than In Institutions reserved for soldiers of the ptrtloular countries. Her Majesty thought that this associa-tlontlon of companions in misfortune would go far to promote the mutual sympathy and good feeling which the Empire had already so splendidly; shown, and which It was Important to cultivate and extend.

The elevator boy had all ho could do to keep up with him, Attor a rub down Wlllard ate a hearty breakfast consisting of several kinds of breakfast food, such ns ham and eggs, buckwheat cakes, grape fruit, coffee, etc, Willard had hardly finished breakfast when the inexorable Walter Monahan showed up with tho pinochle deck and beckoned- the champion to follo\y him i^nd'Jesa knew that he was In foi' a 'gruelling work out.
