Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 8, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1917. THE LETHBRIDGE DAIL-y HERALD PAGE THREE) ^BRlNGING UP FATHER" By G. McManus AUU tHfi WAV LON; shortly for the winter season,^ arid the game will soon be at its fieight here. Tonight at the "Y" a meeting will be held to organise a bowling league and all who are Intenasted are request-' ed to be on hand at eight o'clock. On Saturday night It is likely that city league bowlers will meet to organize for the season. . Ail bowlers are requested to be on hand. Pt'ospectlve captains are urged to make their entries before the 10th. Weeghman, who runs the Chicago club of the National league, started out a year ago to put some new ideas into the grand old pastime, but his ideas went shuffling off for anothei-* year �when he got tangled up in his training plana. This year, he declared today, .ho is going right on through with them. Weeghman has the idea that hitters can be made. In spite of the oft-repeated assertion, proved many times according ,to present methods, that fear about some real competition from the old standhys, Raymond, who are now donning their armor in practice, and Cardston who have been playing in their town league for some time. Then again the latest reports come from the town of Barnwell which is reputed to have five dark horses under cover, which they will unleash upon the unsuspecting public at any moment. ' It is Calgary's wish to arrange a series of home and home games at once and very likely it may be accomplished about' the 1st of Decern king of all the lightweights, and from outward appearance it would seem so. But Benny has another big asset. He is the possessor of a fighting brain, which gives him an almost uncanny ability to discover the slightest weakness or fault in an opponent, and his split-second judgment while in action has helped him pave the way to tame. Leonard is an ideal champion because of his terrific punching power, and the most popular lightweight king in years because of the fact that he uses his punch with deadly effect. He is lightning fast with that crashing right hand, and he can hit from any angle -svith the speed of a bolt of lightning, V/orks Fast Leonard works fast in the ring, but go th�! limit with his new idea. Just about a year ago Weeghman conceived the idea of taking a crack golfer to California with him and sicking him onto the boys with the purpose of showing them a golf swing in their batting. A follow-through blow, such as is used in golfing, comers as soon as possible.

The fan sitting at the ringside often gets the,impression that Leonard is deliberately tempting fate because of the rushing stylo lie uses against so many opponents, but he isn't, not for a moment.

A recent bout in which Leonard appeared in New York offered a vivid illustration of the split-second working of his brain; of his ability to pick the flaws in an opponent.
