Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 30, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta *^ * SIX THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD THURSDAY, MAY 30. lOig "BRINGING UP FATHER" By G. McManus JOVE  I'M MARRIED MAN- VOU 00 Iti Philadelphia ...... It :;o Washington ...... 1.' Detroit ........... 10 IS v.r. .�;!!) : ! �^^\ .LSI ] .40.-, � EAST SILENT ON SUNDAY BASEBALL No Fuss Against Desecration Ity Washington Churches, Now Crowded to Doors JESS WILLARD'S COIN SOURCE. Fighter Did Not Make His Fortune In Prize Ring. New York.-When .less Willard I crawled through the ropes to fight' .lack Johnson at Havana. .Vpri! 5, 1915, he was flat broke. He didn't possess enough coin of the realm to ' pad the proverbial crutch, and he j knew that if ho lost he would have 1 a tough time getting back to the I States and paying up debta that had accumulated. Less than three years later, last March, to be exact. Willard was rated as the possessor of a fortunte that ranged between $350,-000 and �5OO,O00. If this isn't a vecord for fortune-making, when It is considered that from the time he faced Johnson until the present day the big fellow has fought only thtrty-six rounds, then we'll buy the cakes. EMstic champions ot the past in all other divisions had a much harder time getting their money. They were not boosted to the position of challengers over night like WUlard. And they had to keep fighting from time to time in order to cash in on the titles they had won. Willard'8 share for fighting Jack Johnson was supposed to have been $10,000, hiit expenses were so great that Willard did not get a dollar according to both Tom Jones and Jack Curley, his Joint managers at the time. Then the big fellow "vodevll-led" for a while at a fat salary, and finally, in 1916, he raked in $4,500 for boxing Frank Moran ten rounds. So, if It Is true that Willard was clean as a Thanksgiving bird when he left Havana, the money he got for fighting Moran Is the only money he has earned with his flats. All the rest has been realized by commercializing his title.

Cincinnati-Chicago, double header postponed, wot grounds. Britishers the world over have a very warm spot in the hearts for the Hon. Mr. Brand Whitlock, the heroic United States Minister to Belgium, who during the States'.neutrality did so much for the Allies and so much for the stricken Belgians. He It was too, who fought so tenaciously for the life of the martyred nurse, Edith Cavell. His name will always be held in fond remembrance by the pfeoples of the Empire. Mr. S. F'. Jermaln. the "Father" of municipal golf in Toledo, Ohio, recently received a notable letter from Mr. Whitlock, who is still in Europe, the following extract from wliich he forwards to the "Canadian Golfer;" "Don't lot the young men neglect their gahie altogether. Remember that 'Waterloo wan won on the playing field at ICton,' and healthy outdoor sports do morn to make the nation great than anything besides moral character. They make it physically clean and strong and they ' teach the lad,s the .sense/ot plaj' ami \ honor-and that Is what >ve are fight-I ing for in this world to-day.'" Such a notable pronouncement from such a notable man, Is worthy ot being heralded throughout the length and breadth of the land. It Is a clarion call to old and young allko I to "Play up, play up and play > the game"-in the individual life and-in the national life; in the fiolfl ot work �nd in the playfield. U will Interest readers of this magazine oHpeclnlly, to know that Mr. Whitlock If a golfer and the njombors ot the InverjiesH Chiti, ot Toledo, recently honored tlieinaelvea by honoring the (j.

And now wo have If. Churches have not made any objection. In fact, thfey have their hands full. Churches in Washingtou never were so crowded as now. BASEBALL HARD HIT BY WAR. Washington, May 30.-To an old resident of the District of Columbia the relaxing of distrlot regulations to permit Sunday baseball within the federal "ten miles square" gives particular emphasis to the change the war has brought to Washington. Sunday baseball! Five years ago the very suggestion was hooted. Washington, despite all ot her saloons and doggeries-since abolished -and rather loose way ot living in certain districts, was pious. As the responsibility for all Washington's law .and regulations Is on congress there was a very general shunning of tho question. Rallied 10 Years Ago. Even in the days prior to 1913 when .saloons were only constructively closed on Sunday, theaters wore closed and ball parks had to be. It Is not more than 10 years ago that a semi-professional ball game on the outskirts of Washington was raided by the police and the participants duly punished. ' The coming of the movie marked the breaking down of the blue laws as regards Sunday amusements. Along about 1911, without much being said about it, the movies began to open up on Sunday and not a kick was made. Then, when Keith's vaudeville moved into new quarters in 1914, it began to present on Sunday nights its previous week's bill under the label "sacred concert," 'and still no great objection was made. Nevertheless the police compelled legitimate theaters to remain dark on Sundays, and this continued until the recent winter, when, with no trumpet blowing, they too, blossomed out with Sunday night shows. Baseball Fans Roar. With the coming of spring the baseball tans began to roar. Kverythlng was open save baseball, so why not open that, too, particularly In the face of the enormous new population VETERAN BALL PLAYERS OUT, Plank and Cullop Have Taken Ip Farmer's Life. Draft Keeps Managers Busy, Says Sleuth of Cleveland Indians. The baseball scout who goes through this season v/lthout nervous prostration or something worse will be fortunate. At lenet, that is the opinion ot Jack McCallister, sleuth ot tho Cleveland Indians, who predicts this will he the moat strenuous year the ivory hunters have ever had. "Every ball club will have to keep plugging up holes during tho season," says .McCallister. "Men will be lost in the army draft right along, and tho wise manager antl scout must anticipate these losses and got men who may fill In as soon as tho regulars are called. "What la even more difficult from our standpoint la that we can not go into the minors and take men in the draft age. as It wouldn't bo long until their places would have to be tilled. It resolves Itself into a proposition of getting men either over or under tho draft ago, and the players of thi(i class are olthor apt to be too inexperienced for big league play or too old to go ot uuich service. ".-Vnother difficulty is that tho min-and are not willing to let loose ot an dare not willing 10 lot loose ot players as in normal years." .McCallister might have gone further, and said, that the sleuthing game is going to bo greatly restricted, because ot the dearth of minor leagues. Many of them have not opened their gates, and will not do so, and it* re-remains to be seen wncthor those that have started will bo able to finish the season. The voluntary retired Hat In baseball contains more names than usual this season, taking only those ^Jlayers who have not gone to war. Nick Cullop, Eddie Fltzpatrlck, Rddle Plank, Chief Bonder, George Fqpter, Chet Thomas, Cy Williams and aoVeral others have quit- the game. Incidentally, two of these who have voluntarily retired figured in tho trade between the Yankees and tho Browns last winter-two left-handers at that, but neither has done any pitching this season. They are Eddie Plank and Nick Cullop. Plank has rnmalned at his home in Gettysburg, insisting that ho is through with major league baseball for all time. Down at his homo in Virginia, Nick Cullop, the other southpaw in tho big deal, is living tho life ot a fanner and not bothering his he^id aboi\t baseball. Tl^o St. Louis club has made several efforts to coax Nick away from ills agricultural life, but thus far there doesn't seem to bb anything doing. Tho contracts offered lilm have not carried enough nmney, and .Nick is.said to-like farming, so It Is not unlikely that he has said fan-well to the game for all time. Greb Beat Bartfield. Toledo, Ohio, Jlay 29.-Harry Grcb of Pittsburg, won fourteen rotind.s of his fifteen-round bout with Soldier Bartfield of New York, here, tonight, according to tho popular vordlci of newspapermen at ,'o ringside.
