Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 25, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta 1 \ ,-(,i/>-i,.^t,l!i pXge six THE' LETHBRID6B 4)aILY HERALD MONDAY, MARCH 26,1918 "BRINGING UP FATHER" By G.;McMaiiijs ON SERIES Took Saturday Night's Stanley Cup Game From Toronto By 6 to 4 .1. ' Toronto, March 23.-By a score of 6 to 4 Vancouver defeated Toronto in the tecond game of the ' Stanley Cup sericc tonight, show-, Ing a mariced auperiority over the N.H.L. champions on the play throughout. The game was played under western rules and the losers were manifestly liandicap-ped. They displayed little system' and -th'eir rushes were of individual variety while the winners . combined neatly at all times. The majority of their scores were earned and but for the cruel and deliberate /ough play in the final session, / Vancouver would probably have wen furtticr goals. When the Blues realited that they were in for a beating they cast all decency aside and gave the visitors a rough passage., Taylor was a marked man and finally ha was compelled to. retire by-a vicious slash on the arm from Frank Ran- -dall'a stick. The latter was the "bad actor" of the' game, drawing three penalties, two of 'a - major variety. Mummery ran him a close sscond in this respect, his work' being so crude that even th'e home fans heated him. For the greater part of the last period.the Toron-tes were playing short-handed owing to penalties. The score: PIrot period-Vancouver 1, To-'^^ : ^ronto 1. Second period-Vancouver 4, Toronto 2. Third period-Vancouver 6, Toronto 4. . I^OR BARONS R^D CROSS. (From bur Own Correspondent) i ' Barons. March .23.--On Saturday rvvenine, March 16th, the girls of the ."T.C.O.C." s'erTed a St. Patrick's tea fin the theatre bulldjng, Immediately �tter thoi shovr.' The tea room was .'.tastefully arranged and decorated In ' fthe appropriate Paddy colors,: and a 'dainty menu bt Bmerald Isl^ sand-.wiches, shamrock cookies, Paddy xake and dish o'tae was relished by the .theatre goers. The members'of the dub, apting as waitresses, ware adorned in green and white to carry out the color scheme. The Barons orchestra tumiahed eX' cellent music during the spread. The proceeds, which will go to the Ked Cross fund, amounted, owing to 'the liberal donations o( the cltlxens, to 132.00. \ . - (By Chick Evans, Jr.) In my \\oia& city we are jeceivlng our first hint of spring, and aprlng stirs something in the golfer's blood that transforms his whole existence. Xot long ago after some busy hours In my office I stepped outside just as one of those early spri^elilce days was drawing to a close. As I walked briskly along I could not help comparing the energj'ztng/ozone 1 was breathing with the dull, repressed air ot the office, and the little breath of mild outaido air'sent my thoughts travelling golfward. Of course, 1 had thought of golf,from time to time throughout the winter, but not in the playing sense. I began at once to recall -where I bad put my old clubs, and when I went home that night I looked up one of my favorites and swung it out in the garden in the cool darkness 'of tSe evening air. I soon found myself puffing a little, and if anyone had hinted at that moment that' golf does not exercise the muscles 1 should have disagreei with him, . . The prevention of that early spring soreness of muscles is indoor golf during the winter, but as I neglected to take this remedy during the past cold season, I.^hall be obliged to get back gradually upon my game. Of course, we shall have snow again, and cold, snaps, but every little while thebe springlike days will come back at closer and closer inten-als, with soft breezes carrying promises of green fair�-ayB, budding trees and putting greens shining forth like circlets of �emerald. �yVe had almost forgotten what the white tee boxes looked like, for there^ was no coutriast in the snow, but when tlie summer comes the goU course is a very colorful spectacle; red-roofed clubhouse shadowed by heavily foliag-ed trees, andisurrounded by brilliant flowers. "Stretching out "before it the course, clottTed' in the brightest green anddotted with gay flags and shining white tee boxe^: and-the dresses of the ladies add another charming and distinctive note. .Tust a few breaths of air from the south in March and we see it again., , . V Bach c spring the golfer ..hopes tliat his Bucqessful'year lias dawned. He begins':tbe season expecting to discover the magic thing which will-re-volutlonize and send hlih wheeling .among the stars. This year, his driver will iend l)ia ball far and straight and sure; hii^ironi will land it vriUiln a certain, carefully aalected, chairming area,' and his trusty putter will drop it into the cup. Somewhere he will learn the secret. Oii* day he wiU have it no^' and ah-ather day it will be his. After years of painful practice of. stance, of grip, of awing, he captures, suddenly the rhjrthm ot them all. iBasily he takes his stance, and his club sweeps' back, and up and-mown again and the ball speeds Iji arrowy-flight through the blue. :, ..-...�>-.%:,'. This la the gblfer'a dream in springtime, aindrbope lives eternal because breams do come true. (Practice and persaverance do transmute them into the golf of /eality. Sometime, why not this year, the secret ot rhythm and relaxation may be yours. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Barbadoes Demon Does Not Now Resemble Famous Fighting Machine St. John, N. B., March 25.-In the murky forecastle of a' transatlantic tramp at West St. John, a reporter found Joe Walcott, the famous Barbadoes demon, and/one-time 'welterweight champion boxer of the world. The feet that has so often been encased in ring sneakers were now covered with heavy flreroom boots, for Walcott has forsaken the ring and is nov/ a fireman on the freighter. Dressed in a dingy dungaree with a sooty bit of toweling tied about his neck, the Barbadoes Demon did not resemble very.'much the great fighting machine he once 'wasi "I guess lam out of. thel game to stay all right," ha said, as he shrugged his massive shoulder's, the only physical evidence' that remained of his once gigantic strength^ "It was a good game, to be sure, but it looks better than it is. You see, I am pretty comfortable here," he continued, as he raised the tin cup to his IJjps with a sreat gnarled fist that' had landed Tuany a^Jtnockout blow. "I'm not one to run down the boys in the fighting game, biU I've found since I left there are friends \vhen" you are flusk and other friends''ivben you are broke, and the first'bunch are the most numerous!" Walcott is-an old man now,, not old in years, for ho. is only forty-tlve, but old because of the physical strain which he endured whHe ii\ tUe ring. "Ye^, I broke that on \My8terious 'Billy Smith, .and ha ,was sure some scrapper," SValcott said, as he. held up a hand deformed and broken. . ^ "Perhaps Mysterious' jBllly . Sn>ith and I fought ofteper and \were more fully matched in otir .prime than any other two men iB-the w^ltar.^elght �division, and the fans of'the old'days will remember that we never passed up an opportunity of ^meeting'.one another." ,^ �  i Joe Is still the good-natured philosophic negro, as .'was shown wlien he said: "I have got good otlicers, I get enough' to eat andv good' pay,. so why should I, even though 1 once held the welterweight title,: be quarreling with'my. lot." * It was not until Walcott reached this port that he learned of the death ot his old friend, 'Jo(in.

Trowbridge Collins^ otherwise known as "Eddie," is the Hardest man to pitch to in the American league. ' in other wx>rdo, Collins'is .the most conservative batsman in the Junior circuit. Unlike many'* batters, ; Collins dolBs opt take a step, to tbeiplate-def termlnod to hit a certain .ball unless he has orders to do so.. > He makes every pitcher work,: the limit., He does not strike, atbad'balls, and tor this reason takes a pitcher with good control to keep: liim oft the bases. / During the season'.^f 1917 XoUins drew S9 bases on balls'.
