Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 25, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LE'THBRIDGE DAILY HGRAIJ) -......f-^...........-------i--"---------'--------- J � SATURDAY. MAY 25, 1918 3; ^^BRINGING UP FATHER" By G. McManus . 1T5 ABOUT yiME VOU CAME. HOME.; �THAT:5 VHA\ I THOUGHT-THAT'S THE RE/\-oCN i , CM>1E HONE.; ; � WHnRE DID YOU UACrlng it around.^ Bill James has been having tough luck with several of the games he has pitched. Saturday he was going along so nicely that Jennings had no one properly warmed up when the big blow came off in the seventh inning. If Bill could get by with two or three coDLBecutl've wins the^luck might have a good effect on htm. But he figures ho is an unlucky pitcher and a bad Inning is likely to upset him, No Concerted 'BAttthg But the real .reason foi; the Tigers In eighth positioa it the ittck of con-'certe'd .the .other membors . ot the team. And a lot ot chances have been- spoiled by unexpected boots in the infield. Last week the Tigers lost Tour ot the seven games played. They scored nine runs in one, live in two ot the others, while in the remainder they could not drive more . than three-across the plate. How poorly tho Detroit team is batting is shown by the fact that 45 run ners were left on bdses in one week, ' or an average of nearly seven per game. The last league averages give an Insight .Into why this .happened. Cobb is.leading tho club with an aver-. age ot .300, but only in the last fejv; days has he been ablff to retkph this mark. Much of the hitting has been done when, jio one Is on his; and therefore frnltlcss. Need Stanage Back A dozen' errors helped lose games during the pasr, week and Archie Yelle v;as ono'ot the chief offenders. On Home days the team actod like a uia chlno with  tho main wheel missing and Oscar Stanage Is budly needod behind the bat. Yellc Is a tine cat-ohor ordinarily, but not to be compared with' Oscar in keeping a club' balanced. There is not a manager In the league who does not fear the Tigers.

S L5 .34S Camouflage Sorry that !� won't be able Mo suy much about the game this week, nnd will blame the .holiday, as 1 had toi-gotten we were so near the end ot the week, and what a rotten holiday -day I mean-excuse the word, but; 1 can't refrain from using It, oapeclal- ] ly when one goes out with the best; intentions ot playjng well, although perhaps, not feeling well, and then plays a rotten game on a rotten day, the result being a rotten card to turn In. One is inclined to wonder what tho weather man is thinking about. Golfers wiio don't want enow and hall on iMay 24th. will have to notify him to that effect and sec that he arranges things a little better for next year. Congratulations to the young players who are doing so well; have I heard that they had scooped up the prizes yesterday. It Is pleasing to see such marked improvament In their play and before the end ot the season I hope to see the playing strength ot the members so much improved that the committee might try and arrange a tew inter club lYiatches. Nothing like a friendly tussle for pulling a player out; he knows lie hfis to fight for the honor of his club, keep up its reputation.-and he w.iU play his, vyell, his hardefet to win. ' ..My: .ailViefe to a player taking- part in a match tor the ftret time is ,try and play your usual game, don't try tor more than you are able to do; watch your opponent and hang to him all you can, hut keep yourself well in hand, and don't lose your temper should you have a bit of hard luck; if you do, something will happen apd you -will be sorry at being beat. Ot course you should not use any swear words, they don't, as u rule, improve your play. I know they are apt to plip out soraetlmea. Some players think It is better to let them out than try to.lceep them in. I don't icare to express,.roy opinion on that point. Once  1 was taking part in a match nndjivaiting my turn to piay o^' at the tlrgt' There v.'si the usual crowd aroimd, when one ot my club mates made a rotteu drive. Sorry that word will come out-but honestly, it was a rotten shot, and oh, what a big d- he let out. Wo were all shocked, however, because his own par.ion was In the crowd; the parson, however, was sympfitUetio and called to the iplfiyer, "Quite right, Joseph, n is better out than In." So J will at that. \ I.hope to say aomething on. how to play the mashle'next week,  . � . DAVE HUMK. Thursday's Games Boston 0, Cleveland 1. Washington 2. St. Louis 3. Friday's Games Philadelphia.

K.) carpentier is LOST TO RING Tho war has evidently robbed the fistic world of a wonderful fighter .in the person of Georges Carpentier, who has been retired from the flying corps because of the c-ftects ot a long illness which left him unfit for flying, far-pentier is now a pliysifal instructor-at the Ecole .Alilitairo de Joinvlllc-le-Pont, one of tho great French a'rniy schools near Paris. The French chani-pion, who was twice decorated tor bravery, and whoso ivnrk with tho Fi'onch airmen wu:( mentioned many times, is said to liave suffered partly from a nervous breakdown, and It is doubtful whether or not he will be tit to battle over tho championship route again.

LL HAVE FOOTBALL Football probably will ho restored to a formal basis by Harvard, Princeton and Y'alo next fall It the stand taken by the Harvard athletic authorities is confirmed by the other two members of the Big Three. Although no final docfsion has been reached by the Harvard board it was made known that at a meeting ot the university committee on athletic sports the resumption ot football was favored and that dotlnite action would be taken at the coming conference pf the athletic heads from tho throe universities. The attitude taken by the Harvard committee sanctioning tho reostabliah-ment of football in some form is taken as an indication that tho wartime system of athletics adopted at the start of tho year has proved a success.' Even it the "Big Three" can not reach an agreement, football on some basis will be played at Harvard next fall. Reduced Scale Should intorcoUegiale compotition in the sports be resumed by the three universities it will be on a largely reduced scale. Tho training table will not be i-evived, the customary expenses will be curtailed, the number of coaches will bo limited nnd evor.v' attempt will be made to dispense with the usual spectacular features connected with the games. It is even probable that the authorities woirid not be able to secure a graduate cOach tor the Harvard team and that tho system of training would have to bo sup-^orvlsed entirely by undergraduates, as was the case In hockey this year. In accordance with the Harvard wartime policy the slzo ot the stjuad would probably bo incrbasod to give as large a number as possible the opportunity to compote, 'Military requiromants would also be a factor in determining the oligibility of the.athletes. The present rullilg supported by tho throe iinl.versltlos, which forbids any man to take part In sports unless ho be enrolled in tho college training corps, will undoubtedly continue to bo enforced. In addition football ))ractico would he subordinated to military drill and the hours preparing for the games limited uccordlngly. (CONTINOED FHOM FkOMT PaOB) "Any rising, said the Irish Ilevolii-tlon Director, must bo contingent upon sending by German of an expeilition with suffhdent military force to cover a landing. "On this occasion the Goyernmont was to fix the time and as an inducement the advantage of having submarine nnd Zeppelin bases in West Ireland, was insisted upon. Von Bern-storft evidently was having difficulty with bis tolls, tor on October 24, ha warned his Government not to allow a certain Captain Boohm, then' a resident of Hottordnm, to write to irishmen in Afnerlca since his letters were Capt. Boohm was arrested by us in apt to go to the wrong people. Later British waters. , ' Could Not Lend Troops. "We again find Von Bernstorff on December 4, attaching a note surrcp-tiously to a message passed by the Araorican Government, In which he mentioned that the Irish leaders in America were pressing for an answer to their proposal of Sept(;mber 8. He soeins to have followed this on Christmas day with a message which i.s missing, for on the last day ot 1910, Foreign Secretary Zimmerman intorm-od him o't quantities of munitions which it was proposed to land between February 21 and Febriiary 2.", 1917. Me added that it was impossible to send German troops. ! "On January 18, 1917, Bernsforfl replied that his Irish committee declined the proposal as without German troops a rising would be useless, "After America's entrance into tho war on April 1, 1917, the line of communication between tho German government anifc tho leaders of tho Sinn Fein party was broken off temporarily though there was no reason to believe that tho messenger service between America and Ireland devised by John Devoy was affected. "A clue to the new line otconununl-cation was obtained subsequently and was followed up actively. Tjie effect ot this new line In Ireland Is visible ii: the speeches of tho Sin'FtjIn, leaders during this new period; * - "For example. Prof. d4 Valera, addressing the convention ot the Irish volunteers on October 27, 1917, said: " 'By proper organization and re-crillt'lng w� conld have 500,000 fighting volunteers In Ireland. That would be a but without the oppor tunity and moans for lighting It could only bo used as a menace. " 'There has already been too much bloodshed without success and I never would advocate another rGholllou without hopeful chances ot succoas. Wa can see no hope of that being in tho near future except through a Gorman Invasion of England and the landing of troops and munitions In Ireland. We should be prepared to leave nothing undone toward that end.' severe earthquake Washington, May 23.-A suvoro earthquake centered about 5,40 miles from Washington aad lasting about t\/o hours, was recorded on selsmo-Braph at Georgetown University today. Tho tromois began at 8:04 a.m. :ind reached groat Intensity, continuing until after ten o'clock. 39 ;
