Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 12, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta s TJIF, LF/riTBRIDGE DAtWirERALD Tiicaday, November 12,1912 D Even Toronto Women Chased After the Ebony King--Tom Defends Johnson Toronto,- Ont., Nov. 12.-'-'Tlic troti-bles of Jack .Johnson are meat and drink for the old Avomon of tlie sporting, world," says Tom Flanagan, ot .Toronto, manager for the black c-ham-pion, this morning. "Jack Johnson lias never been forgiven his defeat of iJim Jeffries," he contimied. "He was forced to give battle to the boilcr-riaker in. the full expectation that 'JeltrlBs would win. Johnson byNJ crumpling up the carcass of Jini Jeffries made for himself enemies bj' the thousand. That was Jack's fatal Up. He could have lain down to Ue/Iries and retired independently rfchi He did not because Johnson was. a .cleaner and better sport-than ithe gang of whito gamesters who had hoped to clean up on the public. Jack Johnson as a lighter has been Money No Object to Sir Thos. In Lifting the Cup Sir Thomas Llpton, wealthy British tea morchnnt and worUl-famoue yachtsman, during his tour ot Canada has ileclavcd time ami again that lu> is prepared to contest for the fourth time the inleriinlional trophy hold by the New York Yacht club. Sir Thoniiis has spent a mint of money iiEhting for the famous mug and has failed on thioe notable attempts to lift it. Ho has again got the fever but will not challenge the Now York club to defend the cup until they adopt'nioie rca-sonablo rules for the ohallongor. The rules call tor the challenging boat to be coiistnicted in such a manner that gives the ciip holders such nn advantage that nothing short ot an accident could prevent the American boat from winning. Yesterday at the coast, Sir Tbonuis came out with a stntemont which makes plain his position and shows that money -will be no object in trying to accomplish the desire ot his life, if he can secure a hghilug chance. "A million for a mug," the most costly sporting melodrama ot modern times. iB about to be staged by Sir Thomas J. Liipton, ten merchant by occupation, but yachtsman by inclination. "It the New York yacht club otilcials will amend the American cup condition and allow me to challenge under the existing rules now in force in the ITnited States, I will build two cup challengers for my fourth attempt to lift the cup In 1915," declared Sir Thomiis before leaving for Victoria today en route to San Francisco.

The Bport will embody the game of rugby polo unless the objectionabla poi-ats, and will have all of Uie good points ot basket ball. It will -be known as "basket polo." Norman Cos, swimming iiistnictor of the Chicago Athletic association, Is the author of the new game, and has framed a set ot rules for it. Twelve players, according to tJie rules, six on a side, will engage in the game. The area of the playing pool will be not less than 40 feet long and 20 feet wide, nor more than 100 feet long and 50 feet wide.

He tell away on his playing toward the end of the game, running off the required SOO points in Ms fourteenth innings, Cllne was nervous all through the gaW and did not show advantageously at any stage. Montreal, Nov. 11.-The game that will decide with who the laurels of the intercollegiate rugby union will rest this season will be played by 'Varsity and McGIII at Lansdowne Park at Ottawa on Saturday ./neit .commencing at 2 o'clock, On the refusal of McGIII to.ioss'a coin for the choice of Rosedale grounds'at Toronto or M. A. A. grounds at Montreal, the representatives of Queen's, McGIII and 'Varsity argued for nearly 3 hours before coming to a decision. Repeating Shotguns and I^oaded Shells No combination is likely to prove so aatisfactory as Winchester Cuns and shells. They are of proven merit and established reputation. If you shoot them, you arc sure of one thing, and that ia that no one has a more reliable or more accurate shooting equipment. A word-to the wise shooter is sufficient and that is "Winchester."

Al PALZER m IRLD-BEATER'S Has All the Necessary Qualifications to Fight His way Into Possession of Crown For-, feited by Johnson FACTS ABOUT HIM VARSITY GIVEN HARD GO BY QUEEN'S. SATURDAY Jack Maynard Made It Possible for His Team to Play Off Tie With McGIII By defeating Queen's, 9 to 3, on Saturday afternooli, at Kingston, Toronto 'Varsity earned the right to play off with JIcGlU for the intercollegiato championship. It was duo to the good work of Jack Maynard, still suffering from Injuries received three weeks ago, that 'Varsity won. The . ground was sloppy and the shitty 'Varsity runners could not make much progress in the going which it offered. They found the heavy Queen's line too much for them. With the win-d behind them, 'Varsity could only score one point in the first fiuarter, Tho struggle in ' tho second nuarter was Just as close, but, playing against the wind, the superior 'Varsity booting gained them two points, so that, though Queen's forc-td tham to rouse iwlc-e, they still had the advantage al huli'-time. In the third fiuni-tor, Queen's tied the scorei Just before the ein\ of the (umrter, Campbell called on Maynard to aiam th� tide nud they held their own until the beginning ot tlfe fourth quarter. Tho story of the fourth quarter is practically the score of this stubborn contest. There was a ciulck formation and, b-efore anyone knew tho ball wUfi In play, Maynard was through and goiug dcwn tho fjeid llkr a whirlwind with Campbell beside him. As Maynard was rfownod l;e passed to Pete who went over tor tlio  only try of tho game. That was the end, though 'Varsity added a point later, which made the final scoro, 'Varsity, 9; Queen's, 3, Jack Johnson has eliminated himself from the prize ring, lie has severed connection with bo.vlivg in this country, Australia, Kngland and I'^nnco. No Sclf-respocting bo.ver, white or black, will me-et .lohnson to become world's champion, because as a prize ring attfactor of the public's money Jack .lohnson no longer e.vists. The promoter staging Johnson would sign a voluntary bankruptcy petition. He would bo shunned by men who support bo.vlug. No decent man would put up a cent to see him fight anybody. SI.k weeks ago this negro scornfully refused $30,000, Before his e.vposure Johnson had signed a contract for ?50,000 to fight Lang-ford find McVey in Australia , Hugh Mcintosh cancelled this when Johnson's deeds became public. The ring has been guilty of many a shady, even criminal transaction, but It is refreshing to note the unanimity with which it bars Johnson. It is a big, white mark to the credit of our dollar-mad sporting men that ' they imify^jiii'restricting the. ^^^perslon ] cast upon An^/lc�\n �^oijfen by ,John-: son.

COPY FROiHTHER SIDE OFF-SIDE INTERFERENCE RULE BEINQ DISCUSSED BY C. R. P. U. There is nn agitation on foot to introduce somo phases Of the American game into Canadian rugby. The scheme is evolved In Toronto-and la supposed to emi>i1ate from Canadian Union officials. Tho first point taken up is that ot the advantage or otherwise to bo gained by introducing oft-side interference ia the Canadian game. Discussing this point. Rev. Father Stanton, coach ot the Ottawa College team, says: "Ott-side Interference is the one rc-grettablo ifeature ot the American game. It Is the direct cause of 90 per cent, of the aecldonta. It Is unfair to ask a man to atop two or three and requires superhuman strength to do it. The best feature of the Can adian game is the absence of interference,'' Father Stanton suggests that a com mission from nil senior football unions in Canada be formed and take in somei of the big ones between American college teams, the Idea being to bor row the best features ot the American game and apply same to our game. He believes In the abolition of side scrimmages" and declares a man weighing over 190 pounds should not he allowed to compete In Canadian football. The superiority of American methods of coaching to that in vogue in Canada is apparent.
