Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 15, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta Page fi THE LET1I1JRI11GK DAILY HKUAM) Friday, November 15tli, ALL THE LOCAL AND WORLD'S FOREMOST EVENTS Pierpont the Man Behind Club That Won't Give Sir Thomas a Show-Yachts Can't be Built to Sail Brieny Deep and Compete Successfully Against Crafts Built for Speed Alone-Upton Makes His Position Plain Is Sir Thomas Llpton in America 6u a pleasure tour, or is lie ou busi- ness bent? Perhaps bo is on this sWe of the Atlantic for the one pur- pose alone of seeking some half- decent arrangement whereby he may challenge for the American Cup with i, fair chance of winning H. Sports- men fa Canada prefer to believe that Sir Thomas has his eye nmin'y on the latter. Be that aa it may, the British tea king is causing quite a c6mmotion in sportdom and other circles by' his pointed statements apropos a fourth attempt to lift the cup that has no equal in importance 15 a yachting trophy. However, not- withstanding the position the cup commands as a yachting trophy, it is bad" universally owing to tho un- sportsmanlike attitude of the New fork Yacht Club, and the emblem is, throughout European yachtingf circles as the "cup thai smells." this disgraceful reference? Becaus the New York clubs insist upon th challengers living up to the rules which practically eliminates a coutesi ant before a foreig; yacht can possibly win under them. '.Sir Thomas is credited with tin following interview which will thron some light on the situation; it wi giyen to N. G. Shepherd of the Londoi Tribune, previous to Sir Thomas' de parture for American shores: When I visited Llpton on the Erin ho showed mo 200 price lees from, kings and emperors or offered by them for com petition; loving cups from Americans ode purchased with five-cent contri buttons of school children from San Diego to New York, and two silk American flags, made by school child' ren. "I know they like he said, "be caus-a I have here the tokens of their regard. You can't tell me Americans don't want to give me a fair chance at the cup." me why you don't get a fair chance. Wlio prevents I asked. "Not more than'fifteen men prevent changing die rules to permit European nations a fair race." "Who heads the "The greatest opponent of fair play is -Cass Ledyard of New York." Then I asked him the question covers the hidden power. and silences American yachtsmen 'when the cup scandal is mentioned. Ameri- can yachtsmen here told me the cup "snielled to high but "re- fused to be quoted. All admitted they feared the un-named influence. Morgan the Man Behind "How does J. P. Morgan stand upon the Question of fair Cass Ledyard is Mr. gan's Sir Thomas Eald with a twinkle in his eye, and a queer smile. I asked him if he had talked to Morgan about the rules, and he said that he had. during a dinner at which both were the guests of a European SIR THOMAS monarch. Morgan shut up when Lip ton mentioned the cup rules. And Morgan is IT. That grim, beady-eyed, bushy-eyebrowed, silent man, who rules government and fi- nance, is, by his ruthless unfairness, disgracing Americans in the eyes of Europe, over the blue ribbon of the ea. Sir Thomas tells how great this dis- grace is: "I've heard yachtsmen say that the cup is a dishonor and a disgrace to the United States; that the greatest shame is that, while Americans as a people favor changing the rules, a few old men are powerful enough, to pre- vent this. "I could not be so unkind as to re- peat all I've heard. All Europe is in- terested in this cup. The yachtsmen of the world would welcome a chance to race for it if they had a chance to they have not under the rules. I shall try to get the rules altered. If successful, I shall chal- nge instantly." Would you be willing to forget the America's cup and compete for a Iro- phy provided by the people of the Jnited I asked. "That's American all he: aughed, "The people are for de-! :ency. i "No; couldn't race for such a cup.1 You see, the America's cup is the blue ibbon of yachting, and it must hat cup or no race." Simple Changes Asked "What rule changes are necessary lefore you will I asked. "If I asked for a race under Inter- national rules, they'd have a right to good I ask a race under the American rules. Do you set the 'Are the rules "No. I'll explain them. The schoon- er America, which won the cup, is to- day a line boat, capable of crossing the ocean. After the cup was won it was given to the New York Yacht club, to hold against ail comers. The rules called for a. boat of 90-foot water.! Hue, sloop rig. In those days, before I the freak racers, these provisions meant a strong, useful craft. ''But designers began1 producing freaks. This caused yachtsmen to settle on more rigid rules, so the in- ternational and universal ratings wei'o adopted, the United States adopting the latter. j "All yacht races the world over, are governed by of these with the exception of that for Ameri- ca's cup. Where the Rub Comes "The challenger must cross the ocean on her o'wn bottom. Shamrock II. reached the United :States with 400 rivets missing, and for a week we had a hard, time keeping her afloat. "The American boat that beat her was built to.the 90-foot water line sloop rigg-ed craft. Her spar was gigantic; her sail area almost unbe- lievable; her deck was 140 feet long, I think, and she had tremendous over- hangs. This made possible a vastly longer boom than Shamrock had, ami, also a larger crew. She was not sub- mitted to the strain of the ocean j passage. _ I "She was like a delicate violin, and to beat her I would need a similar violin, which could not cross the ocean. "Under the universal rules, we will have yachts that can cress the ocean; They will be good, useful yachts that "will set the builders to developing real boats instead of freaks.

I ask that the race be sailed under American racing Stephen Bloomer seems to have discovere-d the perpetual motion of football. At the ago of 3D he is still playing finely for Derby County. Only as recently as Is'ov. 3 he scored three goals in one match against Liverpool.

Cameron of Blackburn Rovers made ft great success in his debut as centre forward in the recent match against Bolton Wanderers, being successful in scoring four goals. Tottenham Hotspur do not seem to he able to find their feet this year. Already they have played eight matches, and up to Nov. 3 they are still unable to claim a win. 'The di- rectors have been using every en deavor to strengthen the team, their latest inclusion being Cantrell of Notts County, but with the extra ex- jxMiKe they have incurred In securing players they do not seem able to going. Chelsea, who earned promotion last season, are not going along any too well in the first, division. With a total of ten matches played they can only lay claim to G points. This team is certainly one of the great puzzles of football, for there is not more than one team who get belter support than Chelsea, and yet with all the wealth at their command the directors can- not obtain a first class winning team. Leeds City soem 0110 of the most successful teams in tho second til- vision today, Early in tlio year they secured Herbert Clmpman, from Northampton, as manager, and by i.he way tho team Is now playing they niftrtn n good in their change of managership. Two weeks ago Everton, playing a home, obtained one of the croppers ia their career, being beaten by Newcastle to the tune of six goals to nil. With' two months of the season ov-er Lincoln City head the secontl division table. This Is certainly a 'welcome change for Lincoln, as dur- ing thc past three seasons their posi- tion has been nearer the bottom than any other place. Bond, of Bradford City, appears to be the most successful outside right this year, and it" he can only maintain his prese-nt form, he is very likely to oust Simpson from the position In the coming International.

ZBYS2KO HAS GOOD CLAIM TO THE CROWN WORN BY FRANK GOTCH Gfint Pole Will Likely Be Seen In This City Soon Hbyszko, tho Polish wrest lor, is trying to sot Frank Gott-li into n imUdh for tho world's chumplon- ahip. Ever si-noo tho American grappling star announced tils in- tention of forsaking the mat the foreign stnr has been begging him to reconsider. Zbyszko believes that he would bo able lo wrest tho titlo from Ootch, and rather thiin claim tho title by'defiiuH he wants tho Iowa, farmer to give him a uhiince to win the diadem, so that .there will bo np quibbling. It Is acknowledged ou all sides that Zbyszko is entitled to Gotch'B crown it- the'latter insists upon quitting, as the only defeat the Pole met was at the hands of Gotch. That was, rather of a fluky order, the American win- ning on a technicality rather than by real .wrestling. Zbyszlto will not return to this country until the latter part of month. He is scheduled to tour the west and will in all probability be seen, in Lethbridge early next year.
