Remarks on Side Re, District Baseball Schedule If there is any dissatisfaction over the district league schedule in baae- here, lut those in authority exercise their prerogative' of sub- mitting a better one. The secretary will be'pleaaed to receive a draft from the local advocates of the phrase, "Lethbridge being the big town: give us tho lion'd ia Calgary. Probably the meanest job in connection with spostsJs that held by the schedule committee. It Is impossible In most cases to the games ar- ranged so that al! clubs will be equally adjusted. Holidw dates can't be changed to suit-the schedule, but vise versa, which seldom'gives all "clubs an equal shake If it has fallen to Lethbrldge's lot to hive but one holiday game, thit be unfortunate and it may be not. There is but one apparent reason Lethbndge, because of Its superior size should be given the bulk of holl- oas receipts should bo correspondingly greater. Whether they should be bigger leaves room for argument, but as n matter of fact, holiday receipts in amateur baseball In this district show Lethbridge taking 1 up the rear, decidedly. When Carclslon played here Coronation Day year the larjest crowd which over attended an amateur ball game in this city preterrt, and on the 12lh of July another bumper crowd aaw Lethbridgo Taber do battle, but notwithstanding, neither of these crowds represented far-the gate receipts that were shown at CardBton and Magrnth when Lethbridge played before holiday crowds last year. .The same it is safe to say, applies to any of tho other towns under the same circumstances In the smaller towfis the .people -turn out en moss. In places of this size each sport has its limited following. Wherefore should Lethbridgo Ije (jjven first consideration If the smaller ton nf-YolunHrily concede certain privileges to Lolhbrldia In respect for Its (renter ilie and importance, all well and good, but it reflects no credit on to go out In search of'them. stands In good with Its neighboring .towsis In the matter, of because It has never tried to lord It over them and hog things.
