CLONE TAIT TO BAIILE FRMIE TUCKER lY 24TH Bout Being Staged By Kid Scaler-Tucker There, Tait On The Way several seasons, has been hltlltlK very timely this spring, 'and Pratt, the new acquisition, Is leaving .little to bo desired at second. Panama, May 19.-Harry Wills, negro pugilist, defeated the veteran Sam Langford in seven rounds here to-day. Langford's seconds threw up the sponge to save the negro^ from further punishnient. "Clothes Don't Make the Man!" "But they make all of him except his hands and face," says old John Graham in "Letters from a Self-Made Merchant to His Son." Just because good appearance is so important, -we continually lay stress oni good clothes, for "good clothes" and 20th Century Made Clothes are one and the same. It we can fit your fancy, we'll easily fit your frame. ! W. B. KESTER & CO. "The Home of 20th Century Clothing" We have a competent Tailor In charge of our pressing and cleaning department. ' Leon Dunawprth Percy Irwin "Irish" Kane George McKillop Marcus Duns.worth Lethbridge fans will not forget-'for many a Iouk year the very Buccess� ful basketball season of 1917-18, when the i^ethbridge quintet,- after triumphing over all contenders in the south went to Edmonton to play off for the provincial championship. It is true they lost at the capital, but there were reasons. The boys got there only under difficulties. Charges of professionalism were hurled at them from all directions, and everything was done to discourage them. They got to Edmonton, however, played the Capitals off their feet in the first, half, and then lost In the second half because they ti^ed after the long trip. Without a doubt the Lethbridge hoopers were the strongest aggregation in the province last year, they played the most games, "and they were satisfied when the season closed that there was nothing in tUeir class, and that Includes Edmonton, so called champions. And now the l>oys are in another game-a bigger one-all five of them. The above picture shows them in their basketball togs. Were they to have the group taken to-day, all would have on the King's' uniform. Leon Dunsworth and Percy Irwin are in the Jlountlea and are training at Regina. They will bo overseas within a few weeks. "Irish" Kane ai^d George .Mclvillop are members of the 78th Battery. Like so many boys the artillery wing appealed to them. Lethbridge ha.s provided move artillerymen for this war than all of the other cities of tlie province put together. So the two boys decided they would be where the nine-twos make a few "shots" juat to keep tiieir eyes in trim. The fifth member. Dr. Marcus Dun.'?worth, Is a nieniljor of the depot battalion while'awaiting transfer to the Dental Corii.s. That puts the whole crew of basket bailers in the army, and needltss tr> say, their hosts^ of Lethbridge friends^ are proud of them and hope to .see them all back after a victorious peace has been signed. Then Lttlibriilge. will square It with Calgary and Kdmonton for those charge.-; of professionalism. For the boya are all professional now-and they'll be mi(.;lity good ones, too.

ArrangemontH aro being made to match the winner of Iho bout with one of Kid Scaler's boya on July 1st. Dr. Hugli Ciinieron, who represented tnvorncss, N.S., In tho Houho of Commons tovii) ywira, iiKk-at Qlaee Bay, aged 8-; yeara, -Miller Hoggins has wrought a rejuvenation in John Franklin Baker, of Trappe, Md., who was once known as the "home run king." IJuring tho two years he worked for Eilll Donovan, Baker was not nearly the star he was when playing with Connie Mack. Fans all over tho circuit solemnly announced that Baker was a much overrated player, and that he had reached his place in Philadelphia by' playing alongside Kddle Collins and Jack" Barry. Probably a good share of the credit for Baker's excellent work does belong to Collins and Barry, but the De-, trolt Tigers aro willing to believe that John Franklin caa play ball on his own hook without the aid of anyone else. In (he last two gai^es played at the'Polo grounds. Mr. Baker has been a very conspicuous flgurQ and as far as tho TIgera are concerned, a very obnoxious one. He Is Klshlng Them. On Saturday Buker spoiled a perfectly good, play by William James by larruping the ball agaitist a bleacher fence for three base;!. On Monday he duplicated the trick, his blow stanUi;? the Yanka on their sixth-Inning rally, which beat tho Tigers and dropped thorn Into eighth pluoo. l3akor is not confined his hitting to Detroit, but Is pummeling all pitchers pretty much thti same. Tlrt) Gotham folks say that Frank is fielding/his poKition hotter than ha did last year, and In every way is ft mucli better-looking ball player than when Bill Donovan had him. Of course, Bill might make a few re-murks aa to how uome oC the boyo acted when he was their boM, but he Is keeping iiulot aiiA let them havo all tho praise they can got. At any rate, Hugglna has Baker playing good ball, and In addition has two good* men paired beside him.
