Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 13, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 1917 THE LFTIIBRrDGE DAILTT HEIULP PAGE THREE "BRINGING UP FATHER" By G. McManus Monarchs Champs Now; Defeat "Y" in Hot Match In undoubtedly the roughest, toughest, crabbiest and fastest games ever witnessed in Lethbrldge, tlie Monarchs defeated the "Y" to the tune of 50-47 after 10 minutes over time had been played. ,The "Y" lead the game for' about 3? minutes and 55 seconds but a Monarch player put in ai field basket just.as.the timekeepers yelled time and tied the score which necessitated two more five minute halfs each way. At the end of the first half of the extra time the score was a tie 44-44. , Then the "Y" made a basket for a two-point lead after which the MonarcUs came back with two field and one foul basket and the- game was over. It was a perfect duplicate of their game before" which also was won after ten minutes overtime play and also by three points. TJjo Monarchs.are the 1917-18 city champions and will hold the Ewart cup tin next year. The "Y" were the 1916. clAinplGna and put up .thev light j�t tueiy liy,e^ to.jetain It,, but fames';i>rbv6i^ their jinx/-'^and the �:Monar^s no\v hold ittie iiotSors.'

"Mie � plural number .when applied' to referee in this case Js very proper'v F., Irwin started but in about the middle of the second seceded in favor of Irish Kane on account of the crabbing ho was receiving from all points. "Irish" pasted about three minutes, when upon some decisions not suiting Roger Lund, the giant centre for the Monarchs, and who must have got up, on the wrong side of the bed;or been crossed In love, judging by'his turbulent temper last night, who took a swat at the aforesaid referee and Irish decided it was time to quit. After some delay Geo. McKillop came to the rescue arid said ho would refereo only on the condition that any one outside of the captains who*| said a word would be fouled. This .fixed affairs and the game was continued at last successfully. This was the only regrettable feature of the night's play and If some of the locali players do not get this crabby notion out of their head it is liable to bo a severe handicap in an important game. For the champions the scoring was pretty well decided between W. Murray, Hu'dson, P. Irwin and Lund. The former got away with six field baskets, Hudson with 5 and the last two with 3. For the ex-champs the Duns-worth Bros, did the scoring, L. Duns-worth piling up a 31 point aggregate and M. Dunsworth six field baskets for 12 points. With about one more good shot on the 7Y" team they would be unbeatable. Pickett played 'a star guard game as evidenced by the meas-loy three field baskets scored by Captain P. Irwin who generally negotiates a large share of the counters for his team. .

Defending himself is one of the best things Gibbons does, but he also knows how to hit, and can give an' opponent savage punishment if he desires. Whether a scrapper of Greb's style, whose punch is effective but not deadly, can baffle Gibbons and render ineffective his marvelous cleverness, is a question that only a nieeting between the two can settle. Most of t^ie fans probably would strlng-with Gibbons In a match with Greb, but the fact remains that the Plttsburger has been creating havoc among the middlewelghts and is entitled to a-crack at Gibbons. Greb declares he is improving all the time and that Gibbons is not fighting often enough to progress very much. Greb thinks he will win if ho gets a chance a Michael.

B^du Motor Parlbrs THE HOUSEOF SERVICE FIFTH STREET SOUTH . ..; LETHBRipOp, A^TA. Chicago, Nov. 13. - Although preparation for the big scrap overseas is the main business of the men in training at army and navy camps near Chicago, waiting for a chance to get into the fracas in France gets tiresome to many of the boys in camp, and boxing has come to the fore as the most effective means of working off surplus "pep." Under direction of Lewis Omer, former athletic director at Northwestern university, boxing shows are being held regularly at Camp Grant, Rock-ford, and some higli-class e.xhibitlons of mitt wielding are being staged. Several boxers well known in'the middle west art in training at Camp Grant , and a lot of the lads who never boxed before have shown ability that indicates a champion or two may some day come out of the army. Among the ;3cr'appers in training at Camp Grant is Danny Goodman, who was popular in middle west boxing circles a few years ago. Goodman has participated in several scraps, at the camp lately, and although facing green opponents, has flashed considerable of his oldrtime cliass. "Rabbit" Hidin, also well known as a willing little performer In the hempen square, is learning the art of kaiser fighting, too; but has found time to step a few fast rounds in the ring. Besides the men who have achieved more or less renown as professional boxers there are a lot of youths in the camp who have displayed surprising ability to pummel their opponents with the eight-ounce gloves. Believing that he will be able to develop a team of boxers, capable of giving any set of rivals a sound drub: bing, Omer is preparing to issue a challenge to boxers of the Great Lakes Naval Training camp, where Jack Kennedy is chaperoning a group of aspiring young scrappers. Omer expects to be able to enter men in six classes, and it is not improbable that an inter-camp tournament will be held in the near future. Although no attention has been given to boxing of a purely competitive character, the second officers' reserve training camp at Fort Sheridan likewise has devoted considerable time ^to the pugilistic art. Martin A. Delaney, physical director, has been coaching the men of the Fort Sheridan cantonment and for a time was instructing 2,000 or 3,000 men each day. Officers of the various camps are encouraging boxing as a means of teaching the men mental alertness, agility and self-defence. They declare the movements of;,-bpxing and of bayonet fighting as greatly akin and regard boxing as an invaluable training for the soldier. conform closely to tlie authentic percentages, and for the inirposes of comparison are thoroughly reliable, boln? compiled, in many cases, from tha official box scores. The records show that the Chicago American league club, winner of the world -ichampionahip series, led the junior organization in both the number of games v,'on and the total number of runs scored. In no other department did the White Sox hold premier position, although the average of the team was very high. Boston played the greatest number of games during th.? season, due to five tie contests. Detroit, which finished fourth, led in hitting, while the Boston Red Sox held the opposing teams to the iowe.U number of runs. Athletics Play Loose Game The figures also give a clear insight into the loose play of the Philadolpliia Athletics, who finished in last place. The Mackmen scored next to the largest total of runs, being but 33 behind the Chicago club in this respect and but 23 hits short of the Detroit record which in this department of the game. As an offset to this excellent offense, however, the Athletics showed the poorest defense play of any club la the American league. The Philadelphia team made' the largest number of errors; had'the greatest number of runners left on the bases, and their opponents scored more runs against the-team than against any'other club on the circuit. In the National league the New York Giants/winners of the pennant and losers of the world series, played the most games, completing their full [schedule of 154. games with four tie contests, bringing the total up to 15S. As was the case with the Chicago White Sox, the pennant winning combination in the senior organization also scored the most runs, the Giants" record in this respect being G3G. Cincinnati, however, piled up the largest total of hits, while the Chicago Nationals perpetrated the greatest number of errors. The Boston Braves had the most runners stranded on the bases during the season of 1917, and Cincinnati proved the easiest to score against, as the other seven clubs collected a total of 611 runs from the Reds in the 157 games played. Brooklyn Team Erratic The Brooklyn club, ^ winner of the 1916 pennant, aside from its feat in playing the largest of tie games, tailed to show the form of a year ago. The Superbas made less runs than any team in the league with t"he exception of Pittsburg; was third in total hits; made the third largest number of errors, and was about at the halfway mark in men left on tho bases and in runs scored by opponents. i The complete records of the 10 clubs, showing the work of the various, teams In the two major leagues, follow: 1917 Chicago Americans 3.000,000 Davis Cigars are made eacK montK Because we have made good cigars for over 70 years, and thousands of smokers will smoke no other.

S. TO PARTICIPATE London, Nov. 12.-Andrew Bonar Law, chancellor of the exchequer, said in the house of commons today it was hoped that the tlnited States would participate in the deliberations of the inter-allied war council which would meet at Versailles once a month or more often, with a view to better co-ordination of military action. dressed the meeting at considerably length. He said: "I am glad to be a representative at this convention. We are In this fight to a finish, and we are well backed up by the people of the province. At the convention held at Edmonton which was of the most enthusiastic natur^ there were four from Macleod riding, 25 from Lethbrldge riding, and 89 from Claresholm north. The Liberals are pinning their faith on economic principles, and supporting and adopting the same principles as adopted at the convention at Winnipeg. I am sure the Liberals worthy of the name of Liberals could not object to the platform of the Liberal party namely of carrying to a conclusion the present war, with the men, and money, and sinews of war. Every true Liberal from Hilifax to Vancouver knows that A. L. Sifton- in extravagant language at the Wiiini-peg convention strongly objected to the policy of the present government, and yet Is now running hand and glove with them. Crerar is the same. Every true Liberal will stand behind Sir Wilfrid Laurier to the end. We cannot blame those who have left our ranks out of purest motives to attain the object of winning the war, but surly tliej' can see that the motives of the Borden supporters are not truly patriotic in some Instances, and that the Borden government-ie no longer fit to hold the reins of tho country at the present great crisis. Sifton and Crerar have allowed themselves to be swallowed up by the present government. What can we think of them? Even if we carry Liberalism, to victory or defeat we have the satisfaction of not being traitors to our party, but we have played the game." Nominates Mclvor Mr. Gillis then went on to say that he had great pleasure in nominating Mr. D. ,R. Mclvor' of Cowley as the Liberal candidate for the forthcoming election. "He is a man who will meet the present day issues squarely,"'said Mr. Gillis, "and rightly, and we must all gird on our arpiour, and assist him to victory." Mr. Mclvor in a short address thanked with great cheers from the whole convention. No other ' name was brought forward and air. Mclvor was j unanimously nominated. Mr. Mclvor is a short address thank- ed those present for giving liim the great honor. His interests were their Interests namely to cast aside the present Borden government. He always got along better in adversity than otherwise so if he had an uphill fight he would be more contented. It seemed to him that the affairs of the war and country of today were being handled by a few big financiers from Toronto, Ottawa, and Montreal, and they are trying to put It over us by forming a so-called union party with their chief false cry of patriotism. Everything he could do to further the interests of the straight Liberal party he would do. Mr. Mclvor's nomination wag seconded by W. Moffatt of Claresholm. The following officers were elected for the Liberal association of the Macleod riding: President, Mr. T. H. Stedman, of Macleod; first vice president, Mr. Gillis, of Blairmore; second vice president, Mr. MacDonald, of Stavely; secretary, Mi*. Johnson, of Blairmore. It was decided that each president of a local association form one of the executive committee of the whole riding. Two resolutions were passed, moved, and seconded by Messrs. Johnson, and Bostantherry, and Messrs. Gillis, and Dr. Oliver respectively, as follows: "Whereas, at the Liberal convention hold at Winnipeg, Messrs. Sifton, Calder and Crerar supported a resolution in which the Borden government was condemned because it has exhibited gross incompetence and inefficiency in the face of national peril; because it has substituted partisan selfishness for honor and fair dealing; because dissension has overcome leadership in its councils and Wfjakness and vacillation have taken the place of firmnes.s of resolution, courage and efficiency in execution, we condemn it as no longer entitled to the confidence of the Canadian people.' "Whereas, the said Sifton, Calder and Crerar strongly supported a resolution calling for the formation of a _----J--- national government, after, but not before, an election, and "Whereas, a few weeks later, aftei" consultation and consideration, i the said Sifton, Calder and Crerar intimated to Sir Robert Borden that they could not enter a Union government under his leadership, and they therefore suggested the names of other public men, who, they thought, could successfully lead a Union government, and i  "Whereas, notwithstanding their views, thus thrice clearly expressed, they have chosen to become members of a government under Sir Robt. Borden's leadership, and have assumetl to dictate, and are attempting to^ dictate to the electors of the western provinces who their representatives iu parliament shall be; "Now, therefore, this convention ex. presses its unqualified condemnation of such conduct on the part of publlo men, and greatly regrets that on theii part expediency has supplanted consistency, political intrigue and manoeuvring have taken the place ol statesmanship, and that an attempt is being made to prevent' a free expres-" sion of the ^v^ll of the people by dictating who shall and who shall not be candidates in the several constituencies. We view with alarm the attempt that is thus being made to subordinate the liberties of the people to a dictatorship composed of the representatives of the monied interests', the railway magnates , the food profiteers and the political bosses. We resent, and will resist, all attempts to deliver the nation over to a political group, by whatever name designated, that is under the leadership of Sir Robert Borden and under the control of the monied interests." ' The meeting broke up with. Ijearty cheers given for Laurier, and;; tha candidate, Mr. Mclvor, and e'very-one standing, and singing tho national anthem. This meeting is undoubteflT ly one of the most enthusiastic meet-/ ings of the Liberals ever held in Mac-, leod, and the feeling of the Liberals in the district is that their candidate Mr. Mclvor is going to win.
