Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 5, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta VITHDAY. MAY .">, 1017 thr r.f/rnrminc.f. daily unruLD PAGE THREE "BRINGING UP FATHER' By G. McManus j pif ,|ysj UNDERSTAND 4m Smashing the Pitching Record fhat Toney-Vaughn One-Hit Duel V.'hen Fred Tonoy. of Mathewson's able i)f pitchers, beat Vaughn, of the ulis thu other day in a 1-0, 10-iuniiiK time in which tlioy yielded only one vit between them, (hoy sot up a baso-II record thai will take sonic boat-' MB. Hero is somclliinK about the nen who linve Iiuhb up (his record: l-'red Toney. (he blue grass pitching ' nioii and .Tim Vaughn, left-handed roni his shoulders down, busted into calcium's glare rot:ently with a end intonation. Toney blanked the ood trust without a run or a hit, the onlost raging (en stanzas, while iiuglin did not yield a lilt or run mill the fatal tenth. This is beyond lueslion of a doubt the greatest pitch-ng feat ever perpetrated in the ranks if organized baseball. � The hero of this hectic slab duel as been engaged in the national pas-inie since 1!H)S. Toney trampled the due grass region as a member of the .'inchesler club for Ihree season^. In Jill be was bought by the Cubs and emaincri with the Windy city out lit mil the summer of 1U12. when he as released to Louisville under an plional agreement. In Ifllli Chicago igain shook (lie blue grass fever from lis system, but the distillery district igain claimed its child after ii brief enture in Charley Murphy's ball or-hard. The season of 1U14 found him till a Kentucky romance, but in 101 Ti Souire Ebbetts of Brooklyn, put In draft for him. ICbbetts .Knight (he lad a lev. nips of coffee and allowed him (o use all (lie sugar he wanted, Oul came to (lie conclusion that Tom y v as not worthy of retention and asked for waivers on him. Cincinnati refused to waive on him and he has been with the Rods over since. James "Hippo" Vaughn has been connected with the national pastime since liinij. He was a major league flivver after six trials until the spring of 11)1.'!. when the Cubs secured him from Kansas City, and he lias been a left-handed nuisance ever since. The oddity in the career of these excellent chuokers is (hat the Reds had Vaughn, couldn't see Mm with a periscope, while the Cubs possessed Toney and allowed him to slip through their lingers. Toney's performance in itself is not a world's notch. The, record is held by Nabors, of the Newman club of the -Georgia-Alabama league. In 1!*ir> he shut out Talladega without a hit or run for 13 innings. N'abors is now drawing down a stipend from Connie ; Alack. ; This performance, however, lies the ' major lengue record. George "Hooks" Wlltse, of the Giants pitched a 1P-inniiig no-run. no-hit game against Philadelphia in lflu'J while Klimlier, of Brooklyn, blanked Toledo for 10 innings in 1SS4. Lincoln, Neb.. Claims Him For Her Own, and Thinks He Has a Chance TAYLOR CALLS OFF ROUT WITH STECHER The big show seems to be going strong and is sure to continue ho for (his year, but Ban Johnson, chief mogul of the American league, declares that if the war is still on next year, the league will never make a start.

TED LEWIS KAYOS ka. where ho hangs up hi .3 hut 1 ys it's home, so he i.- il 0:1 the j rivalry between Iowa and N'e-for the honor of holding the crown. A recent dispatch from Omaha. Xeb.. tells of the rival claims for the honors, including Jack's, as follows: When Farl Caddock, of Anita, Iowa, defeated Joe Steelier, of Bodge. Neb., thereby talcing the championship from Steelier and Nebraska back to Iowa, where il was held for. many years by Frank Gotch, he started a rivalry between the two states for wrestling supremacy that bids fair to result in many liard-foughl matches. Already Caddock has been challenged by two of Nebraska's most promising wrestlers-.\lnrtin Plestina. of Omaha, and Jack Taylor, of Lincoln. Both had signed articles to meet Steelier, but when lie was defeated]  he Hodge county man called off both bouts. Caddock has promised to meet 'either of these men as soon as he has had 11 res(. In the meantime efforts will be made lo havo Plestina and Taylor meet, the winner to take on Caddock. Steelier has gone to his homo at Dodge. Neb., tor a period of recuperation. Within four years he has participated in 150 wrestling bouts, and the last five months have been exceedingly active ones for him. His defeat by ('add k ic in par' extenuation for which he offers his physical condition, now makes il possible for him to take a rost. This done, it is believed ho will challenge Caddock for the. title, and inasmuch as the latter already has slated he is willing to meet Steelier again, another bout probably will he staged. than baseball. Two (o one if Champion or Warner bad known Gregg was for sale they'd have bought him outright and never mind about the price. Limbering up the old soup-bones is Hie favorite pastime with local war horses. It will be a week yet before It would be safe to single out the men who will find their way into the Letlihridgc aggregation. The School league is due to get away next week. Two Central school teams played a 2-1 seven innings battle, last night. They have some classy performers in the schools league. ASSOCIATION All games in American Association postponed, rain and cold.
