In the first half the S. O. E. kicked against the wind and the other team had the advantage .over them, but to spite of this they rushed the ball and upon several occasions came very close' to scoring.. Urquhart made a clev- er pass and very nearly scored, but Cole, the goal was prepared and gave the ball a punch and sent it nearly down to the other end of the field. back for the Westmins- ter team, kicked the ball from near his own over the heads of all the players, but the S, 0.

All the. excitement was in the sec- ond half, when the wind stalwart Sons of England.' WHlettt was the first man to score, and it was a very classy kick that gave his team the first score. This was quickly followed by another, the combination of all work of the forwards, but Gurr wan the maa tJiat put the ball waera it belonged. A lot of excitement took place a-fter this and in a scrimmage the ball was put in again. The Westminsters should be enco.uraged by the steady and earnest work that they showed to the on4ookers, and on a calm day these, two teams should give a very interesting game. The last score was made by Hol- berton and he certainly had a hard time in doing it, but be did it, and when Referee R.

Prejudice Against America. There undoubtedly is a great preju- dice in England against 'American mo- tor cars. This is due in large-measure to the fact that some years ago a number of American built cars were "dumped" imo England and sold at a ridiculously low price. Imm'ediately there was an outcry by the .British manufacturers, whose sales af- fected, and the protectionist papers made much capital out of the incident. The cars proved to be almost worth- less so far as material was concerned, and their introduction into the" Eng- lish market .dealt ayterrible blow to the trade in American cars from which it is just beginning to Motor cycling has become a popular pastime in England and interest in racing is intense. If Brooklands were more accessible to London it is safe to say that the 'motor cycle-races there wo.uld attract large crowds. But it is 60 cent train ride from Water- loo station, there is another charge of SO cents to enter the grounds, and by the time a m-an has paid for his tea, program and a few other inci- dental expenses he has put the equiva- lent of a S2 bill out trf commission. Tie' London sport can get so much for ?2 it is not strange that he does not'rush to Brooklands on meet days no matter how keen he- may be on mo- tor cycling. Aviation Most Popular Of the three sports now in full swing at Brooklands aviation undoubt- edly draws the largest crowds. It still possesses the elements of novelty and danger which have to a large extent disappeared from automobile racing and motor cycling. The flying con- tests held at the big track are not what one wo.uld call exciting.

It is true that the people did not turn out in large numbers, but unless there is something spectacu- lar to draw a crowd it is hard to de- pend on gate money helping out fin- ances much.

All the same the Macleod horsemen. not be discouraged and If thsr "will limit their show to two -which can quite easily be done, the-y enn work in attractions' to draw the each afternoon and also attract some exhibitors from 'neighboring towns, I who.cannot reconcile their consciences to spending nearly a week at a horse show in seeding time. It was ally remarked that two days would be quite sufficient. same, to be raised for each jump, they might get some people to endeavor to train -their horses for it, but so Dr. Campbell, V.S., of Priddis, who judged at Macleod, made himself very well liked b-y the majority present. On several occasions in giving the awards he gave his reasons verbally at the same time, and there were grouchers as always, but the solid men and the known horsemen were quite satisfied. It 'was somewhat surprising that he consented -to judge inter-breed" cham- pionships in which a Percheron tri- umphed over a Clyde and Standard Bred over a Hackney. In talking with Dr. Campbell afterwards he said that', he wo.uld report to the Government on. the undesirability of such compe- titions, but of course, the Government have considered this long ago and have refused to allow judges to coun- tenance such championships.

He scored good success at Cal- gary, though he still thinks with oth- ers that his great black Percheron stallion. "Halitus" so.uld have been first. -However, there will be other chances of showing this magnificient horse. There is no finer gentleman in Southern Alberta than Mr. Drewry and a horse-talk with him is usually interesting, and his enthUBiaam is in- fectious. He has promissd. to attend the Lethbrldge show irrtt .his stock, and may aJso give many of the small- er shows a lift by exhibiting. The poverty of the 'remount supply was glaringly, shown up at Macleod. There was a prize of J35.90 fiven for the best 'remount suitable ,for the R.

The prize was won by party who had .to be ceased to ring out him horse and -which he mid only brought out to fill up the The Police had the option of taking the winner at but I did not hear that they did so. As one old timer said if there had been such a prize 15 years ago and the chance o? cash for a saddle horse, there would have been 50 entries. In the saddle horse classes a. thoroughbred stallion was first and champion, and he, along with several- horses -which brought into the ring aa an object les- son, -gave an indication to those who might think of .breeding remounts of the lines on -which to proceed. ed to the distance covered by the i over a two-year-old Hackney.
