The score uas I to 7 and all the thrilling possibili- ties ol the game were untapped to the edification of the great crowd oi enthusiastic spectators on hand The close oi the match saw .some thrilling moments of baseball and Lethbndge died hard With two down Brans m the ninth with Lom- bard and Mactm on the bases and two runs tie the to left field Lombard on -third had difficulty in crossing the while MacLm had only a fighting chance to negotiate the distance safe- It he tool, the chance and was caught a foot from the plate by a perfect from left field bj Thomas LETHBRIDQE HIT BtLL HARD Lethbridge outbatted Bow Irimnd tatter than three to one Lethbridge is credited with 31 hits and at least fifteen of them clean The Islanders secured but an safe oS the Lethbridge twirler, but his control was not perfect, Renuaer gave eight men free passage to first base Godfrej m the box for Bow Island fell down in that respect four, times Lethbridge left nearlr ai many dead men on the bases as the) secured base hits. Lethr-jidge scored the first runs of the game in. the second inning on tingles by Wray and Davies and a double by Lombard. Though getting pllgity of. hits and men 'on bases they scored no more until the eighth. While Mackin was tagging Carpen- ter, who orer-ran second, Smith, scored flrstmin 'in the" third innings. A catastrophe, over- took the Lethbridge team' in, the .fourth" session while "'the-Tslanders "were at. bat. 'A couple ol errors at first, a succession of singles and.pass- es netted the home talent six runs, the .score standing 7 .to 2 when the fateful session had terminated. It was an uphill fight staring it Leth- bridge-and was made-a little .worse the next innings when Thomas-tripled to left field and was hit urby'Scho- LETHBafBGB: RALLIED Lethbridge was full ot fight and fin- ally commenced to make their hitting mean something. They rallied in the eight. Lombard, first up, struck out, 'then Morrison combed. out a single, iMackin, McRae, Evans, .Hemmerr and Wiray all singled in a row and brought the score up to 6 to 8 before they were retired. Lombard singled in -the ninth, Morrison struck out, Mackin singled, McRae fanned and then it was up to Evans, who was the best bet of the bunch for the existing crisis. .With two, strikes..and .three balls Godfrey served Evans one nflown -the groove which he kissed full compact. It looked all to the good for the two runners the bases scoring, but the good right arm of left fielder Thomas turned, the fate oi the day against the visitors and the game was over. The throwing ol the Bow Island team throughout the .game was exceptionally accurate. Godfrey, Bow Island's pitcher, was a player last season with Medicine Hat in the Western Canada league. He is a utility man and pitches a cool and competent game. He kept the Lethbridge hits well scattered and pitched well in pinches. Reramer, the Lethbridge. twirler from Moose Jaw, was hard to hit. He hid the best of the argument .with his Godfrey, in the matter of hits allowed, but his con- trol was not as-, good. He can hit too, likewise, can Godfrey. Godfrey struck but eight Lethbridge batsmen during tlie game, but Brem- rder lor Lethbridge went one better, forcing nine out -by the strike-out Eoute, tex Soere 2 2 6131 6 lO 3 S 1 3 448 1 9 S 5 1 4 5 V0 1 0 0 900 0 0 0 0 101 K 7 SI 24 4 5 Sowijilane- AB.

The idea now is to make the start right after the 1914 world's series, and wad up the tour at the eiposi- tion In Sau Fiincisco in the' spring of The latest suggestion -for tour Is to hare the two clubs, made up of pleyers of both leagues, plar a few eihibltion games In the East and South, alter the world's series, and then go to Cuba The itinerary would then call for a brief Tisit to'Panama, and from there to South America, playing in the leading cities on both sides of the continent. The plan is to travel down the east side and come north on the'west side of South America, playing in all the principal places in tbe canal zone, where the numerous Americans would welcome the baseball teams From here it is planned to go to the Paci- fic coast, and play in several cities in California before the close of the hig fair: trip is no.w.propos- ed, the baseball .party would be sure to meet favorable weather conditions throughout, the, trip.
