The Lethbridge Daily Herald Section Page 0 SWEET CIGARETTES More sold than a.11 other brands combined MOTOR HIGHWAY Donor of Glidden Trophy Has a Vision of a Speedway Reaching From Coast to Coast Caught In a Quiet Mood New York, May J. ferent from that of the day before. thlcii.clonor of the (Jlidden tour' "What an ideal tour it would be trophy, who has toured through near- ly every country on tiie globe, believes SEE AISO PAGE SEVEN For Ball Scores and Other Sports NOTHING WRONG WITH SHUSTER. Kick Against a Good Umpire Made Without Reason. At the recent meeting of the West- ern Canada League executive, held in .Medicine Hat, the matter of the that the United States will have one ot the most magnificent motor high- ways on earth, which will extend from the Atlantic to the Pacific oceans, be- fore many years. Such a highway, he argued, is bound to come. "Just imagine with what pride an American could look back over a jour- ney across the continent. Every mile of the trip would un- fold wonders, such as only this coun- try can boast. Each day' he would pass through interesting country and each day the panorama would be dif- to leave New York and pass over the historic roads of 'New Jersey, then (through wifih its oil wells and coal mines for exploration, and so on through the middle west, over (he plains to finally pierce the Rockies to the Golden West. With a good highway, what a magnificent tour rlmt would be. I'll tell you there is nothing in any country that can equal it. But the trouble is that our American motorist does not seem to take the time to look at the inter- esting places of his .'home country, yet would tour an entire day to look at some sight abroad that is not nearly as picturesque as those at home. f Play That Lost Washington a Game at New York cleared up in regard to the matter. '.Moose Jaw showed that Sinister 'had nothing to do with the organization of their club beyond furnishing them with the names of three players out in Spokane who were available. He had also offered to look men out for Lethbridge. while at. the coast, and had done so. In view of the information received. .Mr. Smith stated that he would reconi mend to the Kegiua executive that the leuer written to the president in refer- pncp to Sinister be withdrawn. The meeting then went on record as having every confidence in Shuster's ability and integrity as an umpire. Sinister, it will be remembered, TV as one of the first umpires chosen by President Eckstorm to officiate in the league, but owing to strenuous ob- jections raised -by Kegina and Winni- peg. which have since been found wanting in reason, he was out. The charges made by the objecting clubs being without foundation, place them in a serious light in the eyes of the National commission and are suf- ficient to warrant, a heavy penalty. REV. MR. JEFFRIES Father of the Renowned Pugilist Deals a Knock-Out to Certain Ant- Fight Critics Los Angeles, .May Rev. A.j C. Jeffries, father of James J. Jeffries, heavy weight champion, is not iu sym- pathy with the movement inaugurated by ministers throughout the country jto prevent the Jeffries-Johnson fight. On the other hand, he declares that if any protest against the battle is to be made, let it begin with "those who are consistent, and who have cast the beam out of their owu eye." In a communication to a local even- ing paper, the Rev. Mr. Jeffries, while he does not approve of prize fighting, defends his stalwart son's Ting ac- tivity. He is bitter against the min- isters -who are attacking the big fight- suggests that Jim may yet be- come a "champion of and wage war against hypocrites. Perhaps, if there were no .money or jlory iu it, ,he would not fight. This nay also apply to those whose pre- tended piety is shocked; who are now trying to prevent the proposed Jef- fries-Johnson fight, yet, who, :n !ime He said: hates hypocrisy. This is why he makes no religious profession. And when lie does I hope to see him still a champion, but for the truth. "i hope to see him knock out all The Notorious "Bugs Raymond liars. These very religious profes- sors will then become his worst ene- jmies.- This is the fight for faith. i for which I myself am now training. ianil Christ is the manager." j Mr. Jeffries' statement is as t'ol- i lows: of war, pray for their nation to Kill those who in time of peace try to convert to Christianity, away money and leave only the i re'is in it both from paid lighters tl preachers, and we would see lets both.

"if there is to be any anti-prize- fight movement, let it be carried on by those who have 'first cast the beam out of their owu and then we would see few opposers where Chere i are now many."
