Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 8, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta WEDNESDAY, MAY 8, 1946 OUT ON A L LIMB with LOKtMEK FENfVICK Several years after the last great trar the English-speaking world ex- perienced what is now commonly "the Golden Age of This age was supposedly brought about by the escapist attitude of war-weary Britons and Americans plus the" pleasant, fact that most everyone's pocketbooks were bulg- ing with the fruits of the profitable times in which they were living. No scatter what the cause, the results were terrific. Sport flourish- ed as sever before. New stadiUiBS and auditoriums had to be built to handle the crowds, athletes demand- ed and got huge salaries for their efforts on the playing fields, sport promoters lit huge Havana cigars with twenty-dollar bills, hundreds of people travelled thousands cf miles ib see such "stupendous" at- tractions as the Olympic Games. cross-Channel swims, "and the "World Scries. It was really terrific and all because people had lots of money to spend, plusl of course, Ibe will to spend it. The Golden Age. which lasted from 1920 until about 1932. was lucky in that it was graced by the performances of some of the most popular and most oroficient ath- letes who ever lived. Boxing had its Jack. Dempsey and its Gene Tun- nev; tennis had its Bill Tilden and its'Henri Cochet; golf had its Waiter Hagen and its Bobby Jones; base- ball had the greatest single sport attraction of all times. Babe Ruth; swimming had its Gertrude Sderle and its Johnny Weismuller; racing had Its Man wrestling had its Strangler Lewis; track and field had its Paavo Nurmi and its Percy and football had its Knute Bockne and its Red Grange. And, if vou insist, billiards had its Willie Hopps and bridge had its Ely Cul- bertson. cause of his I4tb-innmg with the bases loaded that stretched the Red Sox streak to 12 straight victories. Although Culberson has been witn the Sox for three years and played in 97 games last season, manager- Joe Cronin has used him primarily The popularity of these stellar attractions was built up by the most prolific mob of publicity agents and uromoters soort has ever tolerated. Sport consequently became profes- sionalized from head to toe and monev flowed like water.

CUBS TO PLAY IN DAYLIGHT CHICAGO, May ail the other major league club owners thuma a "night-and-day' tune on their "cash registers, P. K. Wrigley savs baseball is a daytime soorr and his Chicago Cubs are going to keep it that way. Wrigley, who nearlv installed arc- lights at Wrigley Held during the war, said Tuesday he has wrapped those plans in mothballs. In the American league, Boston Bed Sox recently voted to pui up lamps in 1947. Thus, Detroit Tigers in the junior circuit and Chicago in the National are the only light- less contenders among the 16 major league entries. "There is only one thing might make me change my mind, and tha; would be if the public demanded night said Wrigley.

During this summer such at- tractions as the Davis Cup. the Am- erican open golf championship, fhe Wimbledon Tennis championships, and possibly even the Kyder Cup competition, between British and American golfers, -will resume and the great Age will be really in full swing. The publicity agents will be out again in droves peddling their and the public into buying them. In short, another great snorts era will be upon us. We imagine that within the next ten years sport will reach stupend- ous heights in tub-thumping with the sitting down public. Great stars be developed (mostly by press- agentry) -who will rival Ruth, Jones, Tilden. Dempsev and. Grange in the adulation they will receive. Games like jai-alai. lacrosse, hockev and polo will rival baseball, football, soc- cer and basketball in popularity. There will be many million-dollar gates in boxing, newspapers will again headline sport stories on their front pages, people will again be glued to radios listening to Joe Louis defending his title or Australia play- ing England in the Davis Cup.
