The 'Sons had hard luck in the first half, ag the wind was blowing half a gale, and kicking had little on the other hajad the Westminsters had the chance of their lives, as the "wind blew into tie goal from the right wing. The shot they put through was a dandy, taken, from the far. side of the half-way line, .and Coles stepping out was badly deceived.

The Executive might start the ball rolling by picking a "Lethbridge" team as soon as possible, fix on the colors and place an order ior sweaters right away. Let .us do our utmost to make our city-known by ita .football team as well as its coal, wheat and wind. And now, all ye soccer enthusiasts, remember Tuesday, the opening game- of the League.
