That there is going to .some fust amateur ball played in Lethbridge this year..was plainly evidenced, though loose play- ing marred the game somewhat in one or two timings of the five that were played. However the boys have found out that they have the ability to deliver the goods, which they surely will when they get down to team work.

The press is the best assistant the police has in detecting crime. Some of the officers may not realize that such is the rase but a little study of crim- inal cases should satisfy them. Cleaning up time is supposed to be passed but a walk up the lanes at tho rear of some of business plac- es would lead one to the conclusion i that the idoa of some merchants was to attract guniis mnivwi driving' them away and to provide fire traps Canadian hoys continue corning to the front.
