Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 17, 1911, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETITBRinni? DAILY HERALD Friday, Novtmter 17, int. Clfin, Ttb.ceei, Conftctlontry Dominion Bowl- ing Alley Down Slain Dominion Block, op- polite Court Houte CUBE'S REMARKABL AVERAGE FOR SIX YEARS ..Detroit Star Patted .36 and a His Great Work .When speaking of sluggers and hit who have kept up near the to 5'ear in nud year out, a fan's inin usually turns to "Pop" Anson! Et Delehanty. Mans Wanner, nnd Lurr; ILajoie, two of the game's srerlhn batsmen. But how about Ty Cobh iNY'hy should not the Bengal be rated !n tins class? The best work of (he iibqve hitters but a slight margin if any, on the labors qf the peerless Uet-roit gardener. For six seasons has the Georgian fclouted his way into -.'he class, even ranking as n .400 hitter on one occasion. For five successive years has his lianie graced the top of the American league averages. There- fore, It Is but nveet and just that he fee credited with the honors he is en- Jitled. to. In 1906. when Ty first burst into the American league as a regular he play-ed in more than games, and finished sixth, with a percentage of .330. In the season of 1907, when the Tigars first copped the Ameri- can league rag ,he Improved his mark', (clouting >t a .350 gait, only to drop lo .324 in 190S, in which year Dotie "St. Louis irtilky man, battet nt a ;34i clip, being the only player to top him.

The last campaign was by far the most brilliant of Ty's career. In that season the Bengal achieved first .400. batting mark. What player is there in the big Show who can show a grand average of for six consecutive sea- sons in major league baseball, as can the slender Tiger?

CORBETT BETTER ATTRACTION .Than the .AthlcticpTigcrr Proved to be Last Season That the public wants something besides stralght-away baseball, be the exponents ever so expert, is prov- en by the fact that the Detroit team, though virtually out of tt'e pennant race.for more than a month, lias a much better drawing card thin the Athletics. The credit for this unusual' condition "belongs to Cobh and Jennings. This pair fur-i jiish'as the one by rea-1 of his wonderful' playing, the other because of bis antics ot) the coaching lines. If the books of the chib were laid open it would probably be found that ithat club' has jilayod more-pwofll6- this year, than ever before, so that, even though the pennant was lost, DeLroll' to players .who give a en- ,'tertainment from the public stand- point thaii do any of Ihe'other teams. A fo.iv years iigo when JefTrii ipned supreme in listiana, some fit ho "had nothin' to do tirt -coinqi waded through the dopw book: id' made the startling annouace- ent that Abe.Attell was -the cham on's equal with gloves. This fductton was made possibly by fig Ins: Attell the winner over a cer in, scrapper wlio had licked another rtain party, and 'so on up to the avies. Using this same basis of calcula n to fit the occasion we have the miiig. heavyweight champion right re in Gotham. In fact, we have two him. It wiii be recalled that Marty Cutler, Johnson's former sparring partner, recently returned to this country, with the announcement that he had outlived his usefulness with the champion; that Jack is all through as a first-class fighting man and that ho (Cuiler) had been fired because--he manhandled his boss in the exhibition bouts. Wednesday Tom Kennedy, Gotham'ti especial pride in the white leavy line, and Former amateur cham- pion, knocked Cutler out in two rounds.

If there is a scintilla of .truth ir Cutler's talk about the present nhy sical condition the champion what chancy would Jeffries' conquer or have in a contest against either of these mighty wnrriors? On -the level, though, experts who saw Paizer batter. Kennedy down to d-afeat, all predict that the verdict is bound to be reversed when the boys meet again. Ignorant training meth- ods licked Kennedy, -they argue. C -hlng is certain, Tom has all the other "hopes'' beaten to a frazzle it comes to cleverness, and if e Is game and has the stamina, ha vlll quickly develop into the classiest vhite man since the-time of Jeffries. I recently came across Tex Rickardj he man wuo put Keno on the map; nd had an interesting chat with the amoiis promoter. We exchanged re- niniscences and talked over the fight- ng game in general. Tex rather takes a gloomy view f the heavyweight situation. He >elleves Johnson will remain in un- isputed possession of the title for long time, and that no heavyweight n the game can make matters inter- itiug for John ATthur. Regarding Johnson's nent of retirement, Rickard does not ke that talk seriously, and opines that a good sized purse would draw ie champion out of his hole in dou- ouick time. Asked why he did ot corns to the front wKh an offer battle between Johnson and Langford, Tex said the match would ot draw, as American sports will ot pay to see -two1 negroes battle, ren with a championship at stake. "When time said Tex, .hat a high-class heavyweight ap- ean on the scene, I will IK there with a bid, but not before. In the meantime, I am content to stick to my business interests." Ad. Wolgast is on the bound for Los. AngeJes -to prepare witU the champion. In my opinion it I is largely a matter of Welsh's con dition.

It now offered In palliation for the poor showing with Wells, that he did not :rnin properly, thinking: It unneces- sary. An old excuse, and one that cost him a championship. If true.

JAMES J. CORBETT. The Dominion Bowling Alley Is -the scene of great activity; these days. AH tire bowiers who have entered in the city league are busy getting into shape for the opening, which will be shortly. Each -evening the green roller and the old -iimors may be seen "knocking 'em doon." and when the league opens it is a safe bet that the scores will be above the average. Last night Shover and Evans took j a fall out of a. couple of the Indian tribe, Geo. Moore and Seidcnbecher. Some days a howter is of was the case with the two In- dians last night, and they were trim- med in three games by something over one hundred pins. Almost every day sees a boost in the five-pin record for the at! pie end of the month. The high score j yesterday morning was 02, but last night "Scotty" Johnston, after bowling; about a dozen games, succeeded in raising the score to fit. This is a verj good score for five-ping but In nil probability it will not hist till -the end of the month. In "the ten-pin contest Oeo. Moore is still leading with 2-10 to his credit. This score has had several close calls recently, but George says ho wil! bent the man who beats It. A much needed Improvement will i made to the alleys on Monday. I Alosf. howlers like a long runaway, hut the present one, although of tlie regulation length, IB too short for the speedy bowlers, and the management i intend to add at least five feet to it, j which will do away with going over j the the foul line. j Shotgun Shells Repeating Shotguns make a killing combina- tion forfield.fbwlortrap shooting. No smokeless powdershells enjoy auch reputation for uniform- ity of loading and strong shooting qualities as "Leader" and "Repeater" brands do, and no shotgun made shoots harder or better than the Winchester.
