Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 29, 1920, Lethbridge, Alberta BUCK WEAVER TO JOIN COMISKEY; HIS CONJRACT TO STAND SURPRISES EASIERNERS Pacific Team Shows Real Class On Hard Ice-Blank N. H. L. Champions CHICAGO, March L'9.-Following a coni'erence between Charles Comlskey, owner of the Chicago team of the American LtaKiie, and "i3iick".Weaver, inllelder, said to have been a hold-oni. it was announced that Weaver's contract, which has two years to run, would stand. Ho is to join tho team at Houston. Texas, on Wednesday, it was announced. Ottawa Had Arranged Banquet To Celebrate Return of the Stanley Cup to Their City OTTAWA, March 28.-Proving their claim that they are essentially a hard ice team, Seattle on Saturday night decisively defeated Ottawa, champions of the N. H. L., by a score of 3 to 1, and thereby prolonged the series, the next game of which will be played on Toronto ice on next Tuesday. Should the westerners win the next game, the fifth will be played in Toronto on Thursday night. Ot'.awa has won two matches and Seattle one. The result of Saturday night's game was the great surprise of th- Ottawa hockey s,eason. There was not one Ottawa fan who had witnessed the two earlier games of the series who thought that the westerners had a chance and the majority of the 7,000 persons in the riiik had gone to greet the new v/orlc! champion,-;. In fact, the Ottawa mar.sgc.-nent had arranged a banquet to celebrate the return of the Stanley cup to the possersion of the Ottawa team. The m.3tch established a record for Stanley cup hockey inasmuch as not one penally was handed out. It is remarkable in view of the stirring manner in which the match was contested.

March 2S.-The Falcons of Winnipeg inflicted a defeat on the University of Toronto by a score of S to 3 here Saturday night in the first of the two final games tor the Allan cup and the amateur hockey championship of Canada and in so doing demonstrated that fast hockey caii be played and championships won without resorting to body checking! With a five goal leadl for the final contest bet-.veen the two teams on Monday, the indications are that the Falcons will win the Allan cup and go to the Olympic games at Antwerp as the champion Canadian hockey team. The -sN-esternerS travelled at a terrific pace throughout the first fifty minutes and led by 8 to 1, but they tired at the end and tho collegians coining strong, ran in two goals. On the night's play, the Falcons, by long odds, proved to be the better team. Hopeless Task TORONTO, Jfarch 29.-The final game in the Allan cup serles.will bo played tonight at the arena between Varsity, inter-collegiate champions, and the Falcon,s of AVinnipeg, Manitoba champions. The collegians, who are five goals in the rear as a result of their a to y defeat In the opening game on Saturday night, face an almost hopeless task, L'nlosstho Wln-nlpegers lose their form completely, say local critics, they should not only retain their advantage hut augment it tonight. They were far ,superior to the .students in every department on Saturday night, excelling them particularly in speed and .stick-handling, and if their shooting had been as good as their general play, they would have won by a greater margin, thotigh, at that, at least two of their Sight goals were very flukey. One was a semi-lift from outside the defense which L-angley did not see, and another was a drifter which ho misjudged. The westerners n\Hde good the prediction ot their admirers that they were the best team that ever came east on a ciip quest, and they should prove worthy representatives of the .Maple Leaf in tho Olympic competition at Belgium. The team is composed of speed demons and it is doubtful if Frednrickson's equal as a center player can bo found In aitui-teur or professional company. Me is a marvel on skates and a wizard as a :-:tlck-handlor. Goodman a Wonder Goodman, the champion skater, is a superb hack-chock and better than :ivcrago all-round performer. Ho is worth two 'men to any team for his defensive ability alone. His lightning back-checking demoralized 'Varsity's ccimliination play on Saturday and it was only wlicn ho wa;; off the ice lluit the losers were able to penotraio the l''alcons' defense. For a cluiuipioiwhip contest the Kamc was remarkably clean, only ilireo players being penalized, two l''alcons for tripping and ono 'Varsity uuin for cross-chocking, and tho laL-ipr penalty incurred in the last minute iif play. It is practically sure now that Leth-bridge boys will have to take a trip to Edmonton to win the prorlncial basketball championship. The Edmonton hoopers hung up a score of 40 to 29 on the Calgary cracks Saturday In the first of a two-game series. It Is hardly reasonable to expect the Calgary team to overcome that lead. Calgary has conceded the championship of tho province to the capital city group. Thanks, Calgary, Lethbrldge will yet take a crack at the Edmonton boys, over whom Lethbrldge has now a five point lead. Joe Dugan has started early pulling the French-leave stuff on Connie Mack. He took a couple of days off in camp without letting Connie know about it and showed up again With the alibi that he had run down to Beaumont to see a friend. Connie dropped a few caustic remarks and asked Dugan not to let It happpeu again. LACROSSE WILL BEeiGGAME Calgary "Y" Fell Before Capital City Hoopers Forty to Twenty-Nine Will Make Strong Bid For Provincial Championship-Have Last Year's Team EDMONTON, March 29.-With spr.'n&- stirring in tho a.'r. lanrosse players are- commencin)? to think about the coming season, and to figure on their senior team and on an intermediate league for the summer. All the players of the teami which won the championship of Saskatchewan and Alberta (the same championship that the Eskimos won in hockey) last year are available again this year, and a few more. When It Is remembered that the play-off tournament for the championship of Western Canada Is to be held in Edmonton this season and that teams from Manitoba. Saskatchewan and British Columbia will he here to compete, the need ot having a strong team to represent the city Is evident. The success of the Edmonton team at the tournament last year at Winnipeg was grand encouragement to the game locally. The Winnipeg critics were unanimous in the opinion thai the Edmonton team so far us individual play went, were the equal ot any team present. Calgary is certain to have a city league and make a bid for tho championship ot tho province, and tho right to enter the tournament tor tho llomluion v:hampionshlp. it Is possible that an inter-clty series be arranged this year. CALGARY, March 2�.-Cdmon-ton All-star* defeated Calgary "V" 40 to 29 in the first of the two-game basketball championship teriea. With this triumph practically goes the championship of th* northern ftalf of the province, for It is conceded that the northerners will not only win on their own ffoor, but probably win by a much wider margin. yjlA.lSTS eOWLING;DO T IN SHOPS New Haven Factory Installs Alleys-Managers and Workers Enjoy Game BUSINESS- Will not gicow Just because men >Vear clothing and we have it to sell.

A. This consists of noon-hour bowling In shops and factorie.s. Along with other Industrial activ', ties. It remained for one ingenious "Y" man in a New Haven. Conn., factory to devise a scheme whicli he describes In the following: "We bowl on any space available In the shops. Wherever we can' find a floor space nine feet wide b.v thirty or more feet in length we set up portable backstops, paint or burn the spots on the floors or sink metal plates; secure two sets of wood duck pins, six �wood or minerallte balls, and our two-alley equipment � is complete. When the space does not allow two alleys side by side, as in the aisle bo-' twoen machines, - one alley may be set up. In other instances where the aisle is a long one, the pins are set up on either side of the backstop and tho men howl from opposite ends." In addition to tho portable backstop there are also portable side wings so that the balls and pins will not roll away. The response to this plan has been so marked, among young and old, I that leagues made up of teams from departments and offices liave been carried out in several of tho New Haven fadtories and similar work is being pushed in other cities. Even the management of the company got in on the New Haven games in three factories. PUT UP FIGHT ; Says Frenchman Has Qualifications To Make Derhpsey Fight Hard ANDY CAN FK ANY RADIATOR TROUBLE. 418 Fifth Street South S �if NEW YOmC. March 29.-James J. Corbett is confident that the contemplated fight between Jack Donip-i sey and Georges Carpentler will not i be a one-sided affair. In fact, he b?;-' I Moves Carpentler has the necessary' quallficationB ,to contest in the ring for the heavyweigllt championship of the world. This was the opinion expressed by tho tornjor heavyweight champion af-' ter sparring for a few minutes yes- j torday afternoon with Carpentier at, tho home ot Jack Curley at Great i Nock, Long Island, where the French champion and his wife spent the day. It was the first time that Corbett had ever seen the pugilistic sensation of Europe. : : contradiciory reports, accord- ? > ing to 10:1. !-!pcncor, secretary ; thai, he liad rci'eiveii a com- munication from .Mr. Con ?
