WIND ADVANTAGE Calgary won the toss and kicked with a strong wind at their backs, which materially aided them in their efforts.

The game had gone fifteen minutes when a wicked looLug shot was huti- td at Hewitt, which he saved only by the Elan ol his teeth the hall took a Hiil.iig curve in its progress to the goal, which nearly fooled the.Leth- bridge goalie and" caused the specta- tors to hold tkeir breath Calgary kept Hewitt on the anxious seat for a considerable period, but with a gocd back, division supporting be was able to keep the ball out of the goal month and held the fort successfully against the. trying wind advantage that was-favoring Calgary in this half which ended with a unique acci- dent to a Calgary player who came too close with his 'ear' to Holberton'B flying hoofs The Calganan not badly hurt LETHBRIDGE'S TUEN Letbhridge figured that if they could hold their opponents down when the wind favored the latter, it would be a victory ior Lethbridge surely Such proved to be tho case In the second half the locals ia turn kicked with the wind, and that this was a distinct advantage was now amply exemplified; for Lethbridgi carried the fight into their enemies territory and commenced a bombard meni; which soon" culminated in the goal that won the gan.e.

Hewitt was forced to clear many shots and Holberton kicked out to clear an ominous look- ing situation of affairs. Calgary put it over the bar and then the ball came down the field and Lethbridge took a turn at trying to locate the goal mouth Bolherton kicked wide rnd Buchanan gave' an exhibition of football manipulation, beating his way through the whole defense and scoring, but it didn't go, for in his spectacular manoeuvre be committed a foul, which didn't 'escape the ref- eree.'

LAUNCHED YESTERDAY Gosport, England, May bckTV., the Challenger for the Am- rican cup, was launched here today nd christened by the Countess of Shaftesbury. The; new challenger took the -nater n.thc stroke'of noon. There was no itch in the arrangements and she lid down the ways easily, as the Countess of Shaftesbury, who had one similar service for Shamrock II., .christened her Thomas Lipton's atest champion. The. little shipping town was gaily ecorated with American and. British ags with which was intermingled he yellow- flag with the big green shamrock of the Royal Ulster Yacht club. Everybody present also wore a shamrock. The British battleships in the har- bor were firing a salute In honor of the Queen's birthday as Shamrock IV. was most of the Inhabitants of the .town thought the firing was a salute for the Yacht. Yachting experts present appeared to be greatly impressed with the boat and expressed the opinion that she had a better chance than any o! her predecenors although the lateness of her launching would, it was pointed but, prove a disadvantage as the American yacht) lave had a longer time in which to tune up.
