Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 13, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta Page TOE LKTIimunGF; IUILY ITKRALP Wednesday, November THE LOCAL AND WORLD'S FOREMOST EVENTS Talk of Forming a Nev League to Escape it Next Year START TROUBLE Ottawa, Nov. a result the decision of the National Hocke> association to stick to six-men hockey the Ottawa club has hulmaied it wil break away from tue league uex year, and form a new organization. Apparently, the club" has no olhe alternative, but go r.lcus as bes they can for the approaching season Had the Ottawas put up a mere for midable fight for the seven-men game ihe lead would have readily caret In. What stands against the Ottawa club, however, is the fact that las when the Question, of changes arose, Ottawa voted in favor of, the abbreviated game. There is no town- In the universe citizens follow a game as the people of Ottawa pursue hockey. Thoj are practically all thorough students o[ the game, brought up to seven com- prising a team, and can see no reason why mongrel 'hockey should be foist- ed oil "them by other men In the lea- gue. The decision of the association has created a bitter feeling among the local hockey fens, not at the Ot- tawa club, who appear to have their hands .tied in the matter, 'but at the JMontreal end of the league. The outcome means the re-organiza- tion oE a strong amateur league to rlay seven-men hockey. Already the Stewartons, of New Edinburgh, wlio were intt-adin.? to jump, their season, remain amateurs to figure in sev- en-men hockey again. Tne National Hcckey association will have its dif- ficulties trying to buck the Ontario Hockey association game in Toronto with six-men hockey. They tread on dangerous preserves when they ia- the Queen City, but they would have made a big hit had they given them seven-men games. The fact that the league will not revert to old game this season is to Tie as Ottawa has a like- Jy-Iooking aggregation to place on the ice, and could have just about land- ed premier honors. The sis-men game makes any old team look good, Jiks Quebec "with' the. Marks-Hall. Prodgers combination, some of whom were supposed to have seen their best days eight years ago.
