Fleetwood copped the honors in a two to one pitchers' battle between McMeekin and Sang in which Sang had a little the better of the controversy owing to the superior hitting of his team mates. At that McMeekin had the south side boys hitting the breezes a good deal, only seven safeties being made off his delivery. Wylie was pegging them down to About 900 people turned out on Thursday nfternon for the races at Henderson Park fair grounds. The crowd was much smaller than had been anticipated, probably owint; to the cold weather. The races however, were right up to standard, and were run off without a hitch. The track was in grand shape as may he seen i from the fact that the half mile was done in the free for all in 1.0!'. The promoters were somewhat dis-appctmlvd at tile attendance. Jf crowds could be induced to turn out, Lethbridge could bo made one of the finest training centres of the west, for tile track is fast and the weather here is conducive . to conditioning racers. The attendance at the next matinee will decide wlicther meets will be pulled off in future. The re-ciilts of the day's races were; Free For All--Half mile heats. Pathfinder, L. F.

CLONIE TAIT LOST TO BENNY HASKELL. Moose Jaw,, May 21.- Benny Haskell, Winnipeg, lightweight. defeated Clonie Tait, of Edmonton, tonight in the greatest ten-round bout ever staged In Moose Jaw. Referee Whalen's decision met with the disapproval of the crowd, and he was roundly hissed. Haskell easily won tho right to meet 6'Leary, and showed symptoms of annexing the Canadian lightweight belt. It was a great go, and Haskell displayed championship calibre. Tho trap shooters are wailing for warm weather the same as the rest of th'! lovers of sport. Only four men turned up for the Victoria Day morning shoot. ----- Coaldale and Turin have gone nuts on baseball. And the ladies! Thev are the biggest bugs of the lot. The vote has evidently made real rooters of them. Posses from each camp attended the CoaldaleTitrin game oti Victoria Day and the way they roasted each other was worth recording. Turin wants a game in Lethbridgoj at an early date. TO EXPEL BEAN BALL PITCHERS Cliicngo, May 25.-Pitchers convicted of using the "bean ball"-a highly dangerous ball thrown directly at the batter's head-will be expelled from organized baseball, as a result of a ruling by the national commission hero today.

Kitchen Mystery & j^J^^-FOR SPORT FANS The lid has been hustod off the old ball season, and the inside lobks fine. The Victoria Day game here was a pleasing surprise to the fans. They had not expected to see so good a brand of ball the first time out. and they are up on their toes for the next game. Coaldale will probably be tho next team to try conclusions with the Miners. The Coaldale aggregation will have Lund on the mound, so that Lethbridge will likely trot out DeMar. There is sure to be a twirling duel when these two meet. HOCKEY PLAYER PRISONER Pte. Vernon Chapman, one of the best known hockey players in Alberta, is a prisoner of war. Chapman was formerly connected with the Kd-nion Journal and played with the Hustlers' hockey and baseball teams of that city. Lund has the Taber bunch in his sack alright, alright. They made about three measly little singles off his delivery the other night. There are several places where the Lethbridge line-up could be strengthened but it takes real games to locate them. There are a couple of other good inflelders in the city who will make their appearance some of these days. As it was, Thursday's game brought out enough new faces. Tho crowd was bewildered to see so many new men in the line-up. The old stars have about .quit tho game. Whenl Braudow and Evans leave it to the. I youngsters to bear tho brunt it is an evidence of the passing of time. Lethbridge is particularly fortunate-in the matter of battery material this spring. Walsh proved himself the real goods on the receiving end. Lund is better than over he was last year, wdiile DeMar Is good enough for Class B pro. ball. COOPER SMEATON ENLISTS Montreal, May 26.-Cooper Smeaton. one of the best known of professional hockey referees in Eastern Canada, has enlisted for overseas service, hav-, ing joined tho McGill siege battery. Friend Slier has signed on with Champion at $125 and x's. Looks like n big year for Champion. Len Green is out of the game for three weeks. He strained a tendon in his log when he slid into second on Thursday and the doctor has ordered him to lay off for twe^ weeks at least. He played a nice game at second, a 0; Salt Lake 0, 5, ith, darkness. 7, 2; Los Angeles NORTHERN Fargo-Moorohoad 0, 6, J: Winnipeg 0, 5, 2. Called at. end of 9th on, account of darkness. John Would Help "John,'' whispered tho wife, "thoro must bo a burglar downstairs. Ho has just knocked against tho piano and hit. several koys." "I'll go dovy.n." said John promptly. "Oh, John," she begged, "don't do anything rash." "Rash?" said John In surpriso. "I'm going to hoi]) him. He can't got that piano out of tho house alone."

LOTS OF TIE SPACE It's All In The Tie Space The reason why one man has to pull and jerk his tie into place while the other slides his around easily is due entirely to the tie space provided in the collar. Very few makes of collars have enough tie space-especially in the larger sizes. The design of W. G. & R. collars is such that every man, whether he wears size 14 or 17, secures ample and uniform tie space. W. G. &R. collars are the "slide-easy;.', kind-a boon to mankind. Come, try them you fellows who have been wearing the other kind. t Life is too short to be unhappy. COLLARS Also W. G. & R.
