Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 25, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta Page THE LETHBKIDGK DAILY ITEMATJ) MoiulH.v, November 25, 1912. ALL THE L-OCAL AND WORLD'S FOREMOST FVENT8 Progress of Work in Variou Provinces Commented on by Delegates Interested in Organizing La- crosse Board-Pro. Soc- cer Creeping in Toronto, Nov. tinnua meeting ot the Amateur Athletic U Ion of Canada was 'held yesterday and was attended by delegates from every province in the Dominion, all reporting the great spread oi amateur principles and authority in sport. Many of the problems were disi ed of, and tho way paved for another year of progress. Treasurer J. J. Ward presented his financial statement, which showed re- ceipts amounting to and balance on hand amounting to 200.61. Deputy Chief Stark reported that tbe only case coming before the Na- tional Registration committee was that of the Vancouver Lacrosse club, whose offence was not condoned, al- though the club was re-qualified after an offence committed in Ontario Dr. Johnson, speaking for the Mari- time provinces, said their greatest dif- ficulties were with professional hock. ey and 'baseball, and a threat of pro iessional soccer. From Quebec, President Bowie re- lated some tho work that was be- ing done to increase the interest in athletics among boys. President Bro'vvnlee reported pro- gress in Ontario, and President Boyd told of conditions in Manitoba, with reference to playground movements. Speaking of conditions in Saskat- chewan, Murray Thomson said that the revulsion from professionalism was giving strength to the develop- ment of amateurism, the spirit cf which was being extended into new districts where regulation k had been unknown. v The President will -appoint commit- tees to deal with these questions: Professional referees, challenge cups and standard medals, the National committee oil amateur standing to secure uniform constitutions and rules for the various branches. Messrs. Oppenheimer, Ballantyne, Thompson, Boyd and Trivett were named ae the committee to prepare the way for the organization of tbe national body for lacrosse, and will to work at once, and continue the work for the Ontario commission to establish a single body for this pro- vlnce. Quebec and -ie Maritime pro- vinces are not interested, as they have BRICKLEY DID MAIN WORK FOR HARVARD Famous American Rugby Play-0 er's Work a Great Factor in Victory Over Yale Saturday New Haven, Conn., Nov. crimson triumphed over the blue on Yale field day today, when tho Har- vard eleven, taking advantage of Yale's backfield errors, made two touchdowns and two field goals and rolled up a score of 20 10 0 ever their ancient fooiDftll rivals. This undoubtedly carries the football cham- pionship of the east to Cambridge. Harvard secored a touchdown and a field goal in both the first and third periods. The first score came when Storre recovered the ball which Wheeler, the Yale quarterback ped on being tackled and sprinted :wenty-flve yards Jo the goal line. Hard wick kicked the goal. A min- ute later another Yale muff gave Brickley his chance to kick the first goal. A fumble by Flynn at the open- ing of third period gave the ball to rlarvard, ant! in the scrimmage Brick- ey dashed Iff yards for the second .ouchdowu. This same player caught i Yale forward pass a few minutes ater and ran forty-two yards, after i few plays, booted the oall over the cross bar for Die second field goal, 'ale was not a factor in the game negatively until the final per- od. Then the crimson began to to the battering and the blue egged players, reinforced by sub- titutea, drove the ball by line plunges nd the wing shift formation, to win ight yards of Harvard's goal. They ecame too confident of its rushing nd lost the ball on downs. A few liutss later Pumpelly. standing on j larvard's thirty-live yard line was! irepared to attempt a field goal when he official's whistle ended the game.: Vfter finding Yale backfleld a most iiistable proposition in the handling if the punts, Harvard made very little to test the strength of the blue ine by using plays which the crimson been practising all season. The larvard offense was based almost mtirely on getting down the field nder Pel ton's high spiral punts and aking advantage of the slippery fin- ers of Wheeler and Flynn. CHARLES FARQUHARSON V Stratford, vice president of the Ontario Hockey Association. He will probably be president of the O. H. A. next year. Is a proposal to affiliate all the nockey leagues of Can- ada in one big organization, to cover Canada from coast to coast, each exist- ng league to retain ?is local status.

Sorry for Alerts The Canadian Union also passed the following resolution: "That in the interests of football, tho Canadian Union deeply regrets the action of one of its members, the 0. R. F. U. in the present protest aris- ing from the Toronto-Alerts' game of the 16th inst. We, as a Union, are strongly of the opinion that the u- feree's decision in this, as in all ques- tions of fact, should be upheld, and we regret that it. is not in our pow- er 'to award the game to the Alerts, winning it as they did on the field." President John Davidson, of Mon- treal, was in the chair, and other mem- bers present 'were Joseph Wright. To- ronto; H. C. Griffith, St. Cathar- 'ines; W. A. Hewitt, Toronto.

The boys from the mountainside fulfilled their threat' and sent down, a cf who just stepped aside, and allowed Torontos to go over. The game was a farce Jrom beginning to end.

MO 01AILO World's Champion All-Round Athlete Plays Football Just Like He Goes After Track Honors We have been wondering us we see the title: "The Greatest Football Player of All Time" being passed around so frequently this season, if It isn't about Jim Thorpe's turn, 'writes Robert Ripley in the New York Globe. Bricktey, the Harvard hero, has en- joyed its company for about the usual length of time. Also, as we wonder ami wander further, it seem'eth to me that when it is plastered on Jim's bronze brow, why it is going to stick! And justly should. Surely no one has a better ciahn than this world- renowned Olympian athlete. His claim Is not based on a mere flashy run or a few brilliant-kicks, but is the result of several years of superior work. Is Only 22 Years Old Thorpe is an Oklahoma Indian from the Sac and Fox tribe, and it was jb'oiit 22 years ago that the Oklahoma sun first smiled on the chubby face of little papoose James. Thorpe's Vtner is a farmer and so was young Thorpe until a little over four years ago, when he entered the Carlisle Indian school. Since then he has been a wonder. Jim stands six feet in his dressing room teters Hie scales at about ISO perfect specimen of what we are supposed to__ be. There is in his quiet, easy, "self-reliant six- feet of well-knit muscles a potential- ity for brilliant deeds in athletics, which while it does not appear at first sight is nevertheless there for the keen observer. Thorpe talks but little, never unless spoken to, but smiles almost continually in an easy, genial manner that makes a frrsml of you. You would lend him money at one glance. Full of Fight in Game But wait until tho call of "Are you is heard. Wait until tbe an- swering shout of imd the shrill note of the whistle rasps through the air. Then the transition occurs. The good-humored, apparently me- chanical and .stolid figure suddenly becomes imbued with thc organisms ling the where. eastern magnates every- F you are looking for a warm, roomy Over- coat, with plenty of style and distinction, this Fit-Reform "Shawl Collar" is it. Fit-Reform's Overcoat creations do credit to Canada's artistic and to Canada's best dressed men. Well enjoy having you look them you'll enjoy it, too. 699 McKELVIE McGUIRE, lor intermediate championship by a score 01 to 11.; It was a hard strutrgle, but the Ham-; Honians had a little the Ve-t oithe1 argument all the way. They profit- ed early in the bad muffing oi Ken-! nedy, and he was lucky jo recover the: lall when he dropped1 it behind his! ine when taking a puot, but it re- sulted in tl'.e first rouge. JOHNSTONE THERE .Johnstone's running helped Ottawa considerably, but, ihc loose handling of the hall behind the line offset his ;ains. Hamilton's first try resulted rom a bad muff. The ball stayed at midficld until Smith got away for a pood run which put the Rough Riders close enough to make another single. In the second quarter Ottawa began to press, -iohnstone was the whole works. He sent up a. punt, then Hamilton came hard again. They worked the ball up close and when .iohnstone kicked into his scrim'inafze, they got possession ten yards out. It was not difficult to buck over, though they failed to convert, they scored another rouge before half time. Score: Rough Riders 13 Ottawa 6. OTTAWA BAD MUFFS In (lie third, .quarter Ottawa was would work nicely terv a while, but bad muffs constantly occurred at cri- tical moments, some of 'them teing behind the line. Faster fallowing up hy the Hamilton wings have made the scoro n very bad t'uc umi, ihey coutti no was add three singles. The last quarteX found Ottawa with the wind, but they could not overhaul thc Hamilton's1 lead, as it was they secured the only best touch of the game. The Rough Hifiers were forced to scrimmage ten yards out. Ottawa tore their line to pieces, secured the loose, ball and car- ried it over. It was converted and this ended I heir scoring, hut Hie Rough Riduifl registered pjnother rouge. OLD COUNTRY FOOTBALL London.

Always conspicuous, proud, dominant, and defiant, driving, lead- ing and urging his men, Jim is the greatest factor in Carlisle's success. There !s never a play, hardly an ac- tion in which the powerful figure of this Indian is not seen. He is truly the wizard of the gridiron. His work staml3 out so conspicuously as if he were the only man on the field. Thorpe's powers of endurance and ability to cope 'with various situations are so remarkable as to one to wonder at the statun of the man. Not only does he excel in almost every requisite of the expert runner with the ball, but he is able to kick from placement, and 15 able to punt much further than any other.
