Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 29, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta "Ar,K SIX THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HKRALD WEDNESDAY, MAY 20, 11)18 **BR1NGING UP FATHER" By G. NcWanns BASEBALL BOXING RACING SPORT HOCKEY GOLF BOWLINC Tommy Bums To Fight Fulton '-*- -:- ->- Will Meet Him At Vancouver Victoria. B.C.. May l'S.-Tommy Bums, ex-champion lieavywelglit pugilist o� the world, arrived here yesterday, passed h'.s medical exarai-nation and leaves for Vancouver this ofternoon to join the forces as a phy-eical instructor at Hastings Park Camp. Burns announced that he intend? to do battle with Fred Fulton, claimant of the heavyweight title in a six round match in Vancouver, if such a go can be staged la aid of some war charity. Tommy says four weeks' training will put him in his old time form and he thinks he can make I"ul-ton step lively. BASEBft RESULTS Eastern Class A A Magnates Would Have Benefited by Redistricting New York.-Those minor league baseball magnates who last November TBlused to sanction a redistricting of minor leagues during the meeting at .lioulsville probably are beginnig to see the light now-when it is too ; late. Several leagues wlilch are steering : nearer and nearer the rocks of destruction and those whicli went over the brink might have been saved if ' the vote had gone differently. The day has gone now when a concerted effort can be made to save the minors. They must live or die together and the territory they leave open when they succumb " mny be picked up when better days como again. The International League, one of those to vote in favor of redistricting offers an object lesson to other leagues. WTien this league skidded around the corners of midwinter and voted to' disband, the territory was * left open and players were declared free agents. The Toronto club, for instance, lo6t heavily when Napoleon Uajoie signed to manage the Indianapolis club, and several other players were snapped up by the .American Association. If the best cities in this league had been combined with the best cities in the American Association there would never have been any trouble. The teams dropped from each circuit could have been embraced in stronger and more compact organizations. Now Lincoln and Denver have faded from -the 'scenery in the Western League, Providence has gone into the Eastern league in the east. Richmond has been left without a club. Montreal has no baseball of the professional kind. These cities could have been taken care of in the districting plan figured out by Ed. Barrow. The men who fought the redistricting knew they were ready for the sklde, but they grimly held on, hoping against hope that something would happen. P. CI. ME IS BROKEN ALREAOY Tacoma and Spokane Quit-Poor Attendance is Cause of Early Smash Breaks are coming early in the minor league formations this year. Spokane and Tacoma have been dropped from the Pacific Coast International league, as the following from the Spokesman Review will show: Seattle, Wash.-Following the announcement ot Russ Hall, Tacoma owner, that he would withdraw his club on account of poor attendance, the magnates met here to-day before ihc Vancouver-Seattle gaino and de-^ elded to drop Spokane from the P. C. 1. League. Robert Blewett, president of the league, upon receiving Hall's decision last night, called the meeting of D. E. Dugdale of the Saaltle flub, Bob Brown of Vancouver and Jack Sullivan of Aberdeen, at which it -was decided to further reduce the league to tour clubs. Last night F. G. Farr, president of the Spokane club, said that ho had received a telegram from President R. L. Blewett of the PJC.I.L. asking him -to report in Seattle yesterday for the meeting. The telegram contained the information that Tacoma would withdraw from the league. Mr. Karr did not receive the message until too late to go. Mr. Farr received no further word from Blewett. The Spokane club was scheduled to leave for Portland to-night, but now that Spokane is out of the league many of the players will remain here. Several will tiook up with other teams of the league.

The baseball world hasi never heard much about Frederick Viipp- But there are seven managers in the National league who have a �wholo.some respect for hlin. and he is bolter known as Fred Mitchell, manager of the Chicago Cubs. .�\mchen. llie .Mir.'tcle .Mar." is the way some writers retor to hliii, and though Frederick may not be .ible to perform miracles, it Is not altogethar within the pale ot posalblUty ilial ho will perforin wonders wllli the Chicago Cubs. .Mitchell la ii fighter. He lias the squarest jaw lu the National league. And like most lollows who accomplish things, he is ot few words. Quiet, unoUtrustive ami observant to a high degree, MitcKell isn't the easiest fellow in the world to warm up in an interview. But once he does so, the intervje'wer is impressed with tiie fact that he is chinning with a bird who can. read hia baseball A.B.C.'t; backward. Plays and Studies Game, The Cub pilot has been a player and a student o{ baseball ever since he was old enough to toss a ball around. Born In Alton, Mass., abou' 40 years ago, I'>ed llltchell grow up among a crowd of lads who lived, talked, dreamed and devoured liaaeball. When he grew old enough he aspired to become a great pitcher, Shd althoueh he never set the world afire with his pitching teata, he finally "arrived" at a position of prominence. One of Game's Great Coaches. Afi a coach ot ballplayers he ranks as one ot the greatest In the game. He was chief Ilcutonttnt *ln this line under George Stallinga ot tho Boston Braves and Stailings was loath to part with him when the Ciib� started out to grab him as manager. But Stalliugs was able tii see Mitchell's opportunity to forge ahead, and ho did not stand in the way when it came to a showdown. Mitcholl's 191S Cubs are a rival of the Olants In this ynii/a race. The Ciih pilot Is a congenial manager witli Ills players, but ho demands the best tiiore is in them every day, and ho scneraHy gets it. ROGER HORN8BV, the slugging shortstop of the St. Loula Cardinals, announces that he will retire at' tho end of this season, and live on his farm at Fort "Worth, Texas, BTJEDETT ..(From the Bow Island Review.) Repairs effscted at the Burdett Hotel since the recent fire have again placed this hotel In a thoroughly serviceable condition. Mr. Brown has gone to considerable expense in re-tittlne the rooms and those who have boon accustomed to stopping here will find the new conditions satisfactory In every way.
