THIRD GAME OF Taylor in Shape" and Will Play -Comment on Saturday Night's Gam e Win Five Man Event Taking ' Series-Also Take Doubles Event Barons bowlers have the number ot the local trundlers for the season of 1917-18, and just to prove It they took the measure ol the Lethbridge agere-gation on the home alleys here last Bight by 32 pins, which, added to 182 which they piled up In advance at Barons on Saturday night made them the winners on the round by over 200 pins. At that Lethbridge took two out ot three games last night, but the Barons huskies won by a margin ot 69 pins In the second game, when they rolled.902 and this was enough to cinch the series. Three men on each team went over the '500 mark. Moore ot the visitors, was high man with 550. Iverson and Stark also passed the 500 mark. The Lethbridge men to collect five centuries or better were Dickson, Irwln and Bvans. Not a player on either team rolled a double century la a single gamfe, Moore with 199 being closest to It; ;� By wlnnlqg last night's series the Barons Millionaires have taken six out ot the eight live-man series of the winter season and they are ready to go to work again raising wheat. >Laat night's scores: Cethbridge Dickson...... 189 182 155- 526 Shover...... 157 150 ...- 486 Jennings........... 179- 486 Irwln........ 169 164 172- 505 Sloan........ 155 150 134- 439 Bvans 168 187 179- 534 ' 838 833 819i-2490 Barons HattleW...... 169 150 144- 463 Moore .......

In the first the local trundlers could only hit them for 298, so that they were 80 pins down. They won the second encounter by five and the third by 13. Stark and Moore annexed 1112 pins for their total which is husky bowling, you will admit. The scores: Shover ...... 149 206 195- 550 Evans......... 149 163 187- 499 ronto. It is therefore necessary under the circumstances to modify the stnto-ment after the first game that the Stanley Cup would remain here. "The next game Is on Tuesday night and will be played under N.H.L. rules and a royal battle is due to result. A fourth game is now necessary and It is very possible that also a fifth will bo played." � The New�.~ "Vancouver stock has gone up considerably by virtue of the western team's victory In the second game ot the series and it Is now the prevailing opinion that the cup session will go to the limit ot five games." Stark . Moore 298 190 188 369 174 190 382-1049 191- 555 179- 557 378 364 370-1112 SMAILL AROUND AQAIN.

Vancouver Should Win. Montreal. March 25.-"if the Vancouver club gets protection it has a good chance to win the world's cham plonship series with Toronto," said L\rt Rosa, back from Toronto today, where he refereed the Saturday night game between the champions of the east and west won by the weatorners. "The Blues gave a most brutal exhibition," said the veteran player, "and unless the western club gets absolute protection from the referees, they will be all killed. Randall particularly w^as offensive and in addition to the numerous penalties which he served, I gave him a fine ot $15 for using foul and abusive language. Mummery was also conspicuous by rough work, his efforts being so crude and brutal that he was hooted by the Toronto fans." Rosa said he was doubtful whether he would handle the next game to be played under western rules between the two clubs as he consented to act Saturday only as a personal favor for his old friend, Frank Patrick. Knowledge of the western style of play was not so essential, he declared, as having the courage to deal strictly with the Toronto players in .the face of verbal attacks of a biased crowd. "I thought the Jubilee Rink fans were pretty one-sided," said Ross, "but they have nothing on the Toronto bunch." Frank Calder, president ot the National Hockey League, says: "The match on Saturday showed that till we have uniform rules for east and west, these cup aeries will always be unsatisfactory. Perhaps an arrangement may be reached before President Patrick goes west again," Tonight's Officials.  Manager Querrie has lodged a pro test against the appointment of Irvine as one of the officials. He considers that President Patrick had no right to select him to act in Saturday's game in view of the fact that he refused to allow Adams or Crawford to play in the series and he alleges that he was tricked. As for the claim made by the visitors that the game was un duly rough, he states that the referees were largely to blame as the Blues did not indulge In Illegal work'until they realized that the oificiuis were Incora patent. Mr. Querrie also states that the game was mild In comparison to some contests staged in the N.II.L. this season. Marsh and Vair will handle Tuesday night's game under N.H.L. rules. Newspaper Comment.
