LETHBRIDGE PRINTERS TO PLAY AT MED. HAT ON VICTORIA DAY 4.4.4. ^, .J..J, ^ .J, .J..}..{. ^ ^, Despatches from Los Angeles state that the spectators' voiced their disapproval when Referee Cbarlea. Eyton called the Kilbanc-Dundee bout a draw. Looking over the several press stories of the fight, round by round, it looks as If the spectators- were pen feptly right in protestipig against the decision. For if the accounts are correct, and in the main they all agree, Eyton robbed the champion o� a flght he had won hnndp down. From the beginning to the end qf the twentieth round Kllbane outpointed the New Yorkw and at no stage did Dundi^e appear to have an even chance. One account says it was Dundee's rally In the last round that earned a draw-In the opinion of the referee. Admitting tliat Dundee had the upper hand in the laft round, though the accounts of battle do not indicate that such a :itate of affai'rs, existed, how about all the points Kilbane had compiled during th^ preceding nineteen innings? I note that Tom McCarey is alter the boys tor a return match. The bout was popular with the fans and drew iblg. A return battle would mean many Hiousands for the promoter.' It Is to their interest that thlg match ended in a draw. But it loolis to me as it the verdict iB a grave injustice to the champion. � � � Mike Gibbons, the sjpeed marvel from St. Paul, is back In. New York after a six months' vacation, Mike is booked to bo?c Dave Kurtz ten rounds at the Forty-Fourth Street Sporting Clul) next ^ Monday night. Kurtz is a husky young JfffBeyite whose reputation' wftB necently jglvon a boost at the expense of Jack Mc Carron, PhlladelpWa Jawn's $50,000 beauty. - . Giibbons may need a fight or two under his belt before he recovers his form, and for that fefaaon Kurtz might makS a better showing than the public expects. He is one of those aggressive battlers who can be depended upon to try all the (Ime, and if Mike is not in the best of shape Kurtz is liable to worry him a bit. But that's about all Dave can reasonably expect to accomplish. Gibbons Is too classy tor the Kurtz species of boxer. * * * Why don't some enterprising matchmaker bring Freddy Welsh and Jack Britton together? These boys have been challenging each other fOT several weeks (In the papers), but I haven't heard of a match being clinched. The IJInglish champion says be is willing to meet Britton, and Jack claims nothing would suit him b.etter than a bout with Welsh. With the bo.Kers In this humor it seems to mo it shouldn't be a hard job to arrange a match. Britton and Welsh would draw big crowds. Both boys are skilful, brainy boxers and on the dope fairly well matched. Outside of a bout in whiclil Willie Ritchie or Paokey MoFarland would ilgure as "Welsh's opponent a more attractive contest could not he staged. Naturally the sports would prefer to see Welsh and McFarland clash There has been a bitter rivalry be tween these clever exponents of boxing for a number of years, and although they have met three times the Questlos of supremacy has neve' been satisfactorily settled. Five years ago Packey was given the decision In a ten round bout at Milwaukee, hu* Welsh's frieudB made a roar that the verdict was unjust. A few itnpnthB later tbey went twenty-five round* to a drav^, according to Jim Jeffries who refereed the mill. Packey has nevei forgiven the big fellow tpv that decision "Which hg claims was the raw-e,�t d.eal he ever received. The tw'ent) round meeting in London two years ago also ended in a draw, although the English papers stated at the Umfc that Packey had made the hetter showing. It is generally conceded that Welsh is McFarland's nearest rival In point of skill, and It is hoped an agreement can be reached on the weight question. There's going to be a slaughter 08 the innocents at Medicine Hat Victoria Day. The locai branch of the International Typographical Union has received a challenge from the Medicine Hat branch for a game of ball on the 24th to take place at. the gas city. The local tribe of Franklinites will accept "the defl of their brethren at the Hat and will take a tean? of hall players to the scene of battle that will, make the gas city professionals sit up and take notiice. This challenge is duck soup for the local 551. If there's ono thing more than another that the Lethbi^idge printers are wont to chesty about it is their ability to play ball, and with all due respect to Ed Halver-son and the rest of the Hat printers who missed their calling by sticking type instead of sticking out home runs for the New York Giants or the Philadelphia Athletics, the Lethbridge compositors feel sure of committing murder wlien they go to the hustling city ot Medicine Hat ou Victoria Day.
