Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 3, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETIIBRIDGE DAILY HERALD FRIDAY, MAY 3. 1918 "BRINGING UP FATHER" �iilv By G. McManus 1 BASEBALL BOXING RACING SPORT HOCKEY GOLF BOWLING Local Ball Outlook Is Dark Nearly All of 1917 Team In Khaki y^feterans Will Have to Come Out With the eummer WednesdAy half-holiday plan In operation, the fans are beginning to ask, "When are we going to have a b^U game?' , That's just what we have been asking, too. But there seems to be no oao to ask. No one appears to, be taking more than r. desultory Interest in baseball. The rqason of course >i.s that most of the members of last year's team are gone or are going "over there" to help put the Boche up in the air and make a home run' to Berlin. Where Are They? Tak'jig last year's team, whflra are they? WalBh. -who caught the fore pan of the season and played the awkward corner during the tail-end, ft In kliaM and 'is now training iu England. "Johnny. Livingston, .first Backer, has applied for entrance dnto tlio Royal Flying Corps, and expects to go soon. Johnny was recently examined as. to his physical ' fitness and placed A2, though he was in B when examined last fall, Cosgriff, who held down short. Is across the line in one of Uncle Sam's camps and Is a regular doughboy by this time. Harrey Schweitzer, who used to cavort in right Held, Is Ipav-ing for trailning camp right away. Liink Dunsworth, who played outfield in several gauges last year, is down in Reglna learning how to stick on the hurricane deck of a bronk betors going overseas �with the Mounted Police. There may be others of last year's team who have loln^ed up. "We have mentioned five. The GilUs boys secured exemption as fanners and are now on the farm, but whether tholr exemptions -n'lll stick in face of the new ruUngs pemnins to be seen. It ihey are taken, the whole of ihe old infield will be gone. Marcus Dunsworth may be cailed to the Amierlcaa Dental Corps any day. That makes another who cannot be counted on. So it Liethbrldge is to have basBball this year, the old gnard -the Old Timers-will just about have to furnish it. We still have Len Green and Tommy Kvnns. That's a start. Bondy, he of the lightning peg to second, 'i^ still with us. MurpKr is available for the outfield. It Uiere  are any others, just name them. We believe Rutledge, the big southpaw. Is still farming at Barons. He may be available. Roger Lund, the Coaldale portsider, has been ordered to report. That puts another crltnp inthe^local teanli A coupile of new pitchers, Scott and Ven-narwltz have coma to Lethbridge during the winter.

Meantime, if some kind and energetic soul would call a practice, -we might get a line on available material. Meantl-me, also, it looks to us as If a ^ood junior league of about four teams ought to be en-ooumged. The fans are keen for base-'' ball.

SHAH OF PERSIA BUYS LIBERTY BONDS Washington, May 2.-The Shah of Persia has applliMl for |100,O0O, of Liberty Bonds. The request rebchod Ih^ state deipartmont to^iv: trpm Minister Caldwell at 'roherati,-'-* - '� '' ' In future the people of Bt. CathKi'-Ines will be asked to contribute to only one war charity organlsitlon for. war relief work, it baiav the "'St. CalUurlnos Wu Cliwt Club, ' . Why is it that left-handed athletes,' coftnpared on a percentage basis with right-handed men, mako far the best showing. The rocordu .prove It so-particularly in basebi-ill. Jeffries was left-handed. So was Ketchel, Dal Ifawkins, Charley 'White, K. O. Brown and Al McCoy. Fred Fulton, who is matched with Willard, is a southpaw, and Low TJndler, the latest sensation among Jtlie lightweights, is another. Al-�frsdo De Oro, the famous Cuban pool Bi.d' billiard player, who has won in.any world's championships, holds his if He ,ln his left hand. August Kieck-"'iefer, who recently won the world's three-cushion billiard t'itlo" from De Oro, also shoots left-handed. Kelly, the world's champion Irish handball � player, is a southpaw; and so is Kd-ille Groden, who holds the champlon-'Shlp at the American stylo of play. Tennis offers several left-handed stars, the most famous of whom are IcUiya Kumagae, the Jap, and Lind-Joy Murray, the national indoor champion. One of th'e leading women TilayeM wields her - racket -with her southern arm. C, S. Titus, retired champion.-at-sweeps and sculls, could TOW ei|Ji/a:..j)Qirt or starboard. Many famous fdotoall stars kicked wilh the left foot. ' And in baseball-}voll, look! Cobb, Slslef. -Speaker, Jackson, Chase, Daubent.;'4,uth, Rouse, Kauff, Robertson, \f?iughii, Wilbur Cooper, Leonard, Plaakj' Marqiiard and many more- In Jttcf,;ih6st qtithe stars. , '� st^Hclans state there are six lefthanders to every 94 right-handers in th�8 world-that is, six per cent, of us are left-handed. In baseball, using  our figures on the major leagufei, t>�e average is almost 20 per cent., despite the (act that there are four positions on the diamond that left-handers cannot play!-second' base, shortstop, third base and catcher. The National league li�vthe more left-handed of the two, averaging 19 per cent., while the American league is, 17 per cent. wroD'g-sided. . When we figure only the positions which Ieft-h4nders are permitted to play--namely, pitcher, first base and the outfield, the percentage of lefthanders mounts aatoundin'gly. .'.Here are the last official figures tor the two major leagues: American League: First-base, 43'per cent.; pitcher, 3D per cent, and tl)e outtleld SO,per ceqt. National League.: ,First .haSe, BO per cent.; pitcher, 34' per cent,, and the outfield 32'per cent. How . does left-handedness come about? .We asked Dr.--D.'B.''VN^Iilte, the famous old football and baseball start', of Fpi;dham. college. This' Is th* way theHloctor'explains-It; - "The Bubjecfc df left-handedness Is one of tlia classic controversies - of medicine. Authorities differ. How-iaver, It is generally, accepted that we are. hot born left or right-handed; In thl's'"instance all laws! of heredity seeniH to go askew. The phenomena put in appearance when the attention of Liie child first began tp concentrate on different o.bjects. - "Some., authorities claim right handednoRB Is a consequence of prehistoric and early historic usages- a development of the days of counting with the fingers-of the right hand, of the days of shields and spears. The left hand, thanks to Its ability to better protect the heart, became the holding hand or shield , hand, the right, the spear or active hand. The majority of our ancestors were right-handed-why, I will soon explain to you-and the left-hander, still more In those days than now, was an object of curiosity to be scoffed at, to Vo set aside as out of the ordinary. Even up to the ilresent day, mothers will fprce a naturally, left-handed child'to become an "artificial" righthander' by tying the loft hand, by punishment, and by using other compulsory methods. This Is a grave mistake. "Gould claims it depondB on vision. A child can see before It can differentiate between the adaptability of lieither of the two hands. If the Uff. eye of tTii,e young child- Is vls-iially lind anatomically more nearly perfect than the right, that child will beoome left-hnnded; vice voran If the right eye l.s structually better the child hecomoB right-handed. As It happwB, In about 94 per cent, of all eyo%%a right one Is the better. This coincides, loo, with the statistics of the percentage ot right and left" banders. "This dltfarehce In the quality of the eyep leads to the development of Brcca's convolution in the right hemisphere 'of 4he brain of left banders, and in the left hemispliero right-handers. Thus, right or left-handedness begins with the co-Incident function of the respective eye and hands. Tho child sees better with the right eye iu 94 per cent, of all cases, and, Incidentally, under the primary Impulse of having a better eye than loft, tho majority of us become right-cared, right-footed and. most important of all, right-handed." CALIFORNIA A REAL HOME OF CHAMPIONS. Jim Corbett and Jim Jeffries Amona Those Produced By Golden State, Of the six beg champions that have come iu 2;') years, California has furnished two-Corbett and Jeffries. Strange, too, Jeffries received the first lessons In boxing from. Corbett. Although having engaged In several minor battles, It was not until Jeffries joined Corbett'a training staff at Carson City, whore Corbett was training for his fight with FItz-Simmons, that he came before the public eye. At the Corbett cnmp Jeffries soon catne to he considered u great trial horse for tho then champion, and ho played his part well, t.TkIng all the wallops Corbett could send hls^ way with an easy grace that was surprising to the camp toUowerB. Jeffries' first Important engagement came In 1897, when he andi Uus Ruhilii fought a. desperate battle at San Francisco, which was declared a draw after 20 rounds. Then came another 20-round ^draw, this time with Joe Choynski, and then Jeft went down the line, and met Joe Goddard, Peter Jackson, Tom Sharkey and Boh Armstrong. His - performances so Impressed the . public that when he challenged Fltzslra-mons, who had won from Corbett, he wa"s considered by all the logical can-p'dldate, and lie was accommodated. He won the championship from Fltz in 1890. Jlick Johnson, In turn, toolc the championship from Jeffries on July 4, 1910. Then came WiUard's vie tory over Johnson. Barring his one meeting with Moran, Willard has done nothing In the fighting line worthy since then.- Philadelphia Evening Telegraph. WHEN QROOM PITCHED BEST. .Walked Six ^len, But'Did Not Allow a Hit In 11 Innings. One day last spring Pitcher Bob Groom was called on to relieve Eddie Plank In the eighth inning against Chicago. He wont In without a chance to warm up,,and although he did not allow a hit In his two Innings, he was .rather -wild, passing three men. But he prevented any scoring. It was the first game of-a double header, and between games Bob sat In the cl^ub houne without warming- up any more, Jones Informing him he was to pitch the second gamo. The tans protested when they saw no one warming up, and Kicked because Bob did not work out a little more. But when Bob shut the White Sox out without a hit their protests were turned to cheers, lit passed three more batters, but wont the nine innings of that game and the last two ot the first without permit* ting a hll.
