Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 28, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERAI..D NG UP FATHER" TjiyPSOAY, NOVEMBEH 28, lOls' By m McManus lEFINlIE DATES FOl .

In this respect, amateur ath-.JetJcs has suffered fully as much in recent years as has pugilism, from which so many celebrities haye passed of iate. Natural causes have sent �everal Olympic performers to their craves along with those who have made the supreme sacrifice for their, countries in the great war., The war' deaths are, of course, in the majority. , � Rou~Typhoid Victim The first Olympic hero to pass away After the Stockholni games six years : tago was Ralph Rose, the giant Cali-) ft'mian, who beat the world in putting the shot in three successive Olynapic meets. Rose fell a yictlm to typhoid fever. Jean Bouin, France's greatest distance runner, was the first cinder-path champion to fall in the great war.

Eau, Gei--many's foremost sprIntM>. Russia Loses Athletes Russia lost hundreds of her best athletes In the war, and among these was A. R.' taipale, the giant Finn, who accounted for the discus throw at the Stockholm games. Taipale was serving In the Russian navy and was killed in a fight between his ship, a destroy^er, and, a number of German cruisere," ; Still ^another ' Stockholn* winner to.-loaehra-life-in the war was Cecil Hi^iy, the ustralian 'swimmer,' unqu^stloiablr tjne of the finest amphibians ever sent out to won honors for the island continent. Healy, who held the Australian record for 110 yards straight-away, 150, yards (two turns), and 200 yards (three turns), was a captain of infantry and 'was killed oil the western front after going safely through the Dardanelles fighting. Greece's Champion Killed Greece lost her famous athlete, Tscllitrasi;: in , -the campaign that Greece and Serbia made against Bulgaria follqwing the first Balkan war. Tscllitras, who defeated our own Piatt Adams by a narrow margin in the standing broad Jump at Stockholm, was not killed on the battlefield. He passed safely_ through the fighting stage of the war, but died of pneiimonia in one of the Greek demobilization .camps. No finer lad i\B,B lost his life in the great-.war than jlminy Duffy, the Canadian marathoner, who finished in seventh place in the race from Stockholm to Sollentuna and return. Duffy rushed to the colors at his country's first call. He was killed in the Neuve ChapeUe attack.

Phone 616 (By Frank G. Menke.) , The other day we encountered Tom Sharkey In Baltimore-while Tom was chaperoning a flock of nifty race horsei. , "Those yours?" we asked. "Sure," shot back the ring veteran. "Why; It was supposed that you yere broke-down and out completely," we said. ."Me .broke?". And then Tom began to laugh. "Tom Sharkey broke. Say, that's rich." Then wo explained. '*Stories appeared a short lime ago to the effect that you'd lost your roll and was earning the dally war bread by laboring as a guard in a Jersey munitions plant at $4 per day." "I was" working In a munitions plant-buti'I wasn't toting around a ' gun," replied Tom. "I had a fat job. I was a superintendent, and it paid well. But I kept that Job only until such time as the racing season opened and I could skip around with my ponies. But, say, I ought to pay that fellow a little something that wrote the Story about me being broke." "Whj-?" 15 "Well, I- guess a lot of people read It and think it's true, and that'll atop them from trying to borrow  money from me." "Did many try it?" Told Sad Stories But Before? Another Winter ' Tiiere May Be Real Enclosed Rink in City Rumor has it that the Eckstorm auditorium has been leased by a couple of local men for the winter to be put in shape for an ice rink, and thus assurance is. given that Lethbridge is not to be without, skating this winter.' During the week the Herald has been asl^ed many tMes what was being, done. This Is the answer. But there is a possibility that, before another winter, Lethbridge may have s^methinB better to offer skaters. Sdme local men are being interested in a project to build a regular honestto-goodness skating rink, all enclosed and offering all tjie comforts. The only trouble with a closed rink in Lethbridge is that the weather is so _mild that continuous ice is impcs-sibie, and therefore it Is impos.-sible "to getja return on the^mbn-, ey. 'However figures wifl be pb-' tnsod ,f.or ihr^-bC t?ib four big at- faotiph's wlilch' the local Ijyceum com- ' , Ittce of biidlnfjsfl meri ' have con; ' irnctod to briug to tho.clty during the '' winter radnths; The 'Byoeum plan la much like the Chautauqua plan, except that it is possible often to secure oven greater artists for the Winter program thuu for the summer. This is practically the caap with' Leth-bridge's first Lyceum program, which win start on December 17th. On that date Lethbridge will hoar one of the groiUest musical attrac-* tions which has ever come to the city. This will be the Bertha Farner company. Miss Farner is a continent-renowned .soprano, and brings ^ylth her an orchestral company of great nier-..,.; it. The company will likely appear at the Mnjeslic theatre although definite arrangements for this are yet to be completed. Next in order comes the greatest war reporter in the. world, � a man ' whom everybody knows, Irviu S. Cobb. It has been with considerable difficulty that Lethbridge has sectired Mr: Cobb, for he is in great demand, and be is speeding only ten days in ^yest-ern Canada. He has consented to'pay Lethbridge a visit on January .SOIh, and on that date will deliver not only his famous war lecture, but aluo one of his equally famous humorous talks. Next comes the Schubert Sextette, on March 25th. This will give I^eth-brJdge a series of attraction* that outside of the Lyceum circuit would be impossible to secure. GERMANS O^ED WHEAT SACKS.

The refusal of Mayor Wli the epidemic, and as a result of overwork weakened himself to such an extent that he was unable to withstand the ravages of the dread dis-laase when it attacked him. Professor Edwards was a man a-mong men. The fact that he was cho-' sen as president of the Alberta Ariia-' teur Athletic association,, and conducted the affairs of this organization during the days when Jt looked as though athletics must be totally forgotten because of the greater game that was being decided upon the battlefields of Europe, Is an indication of the high esteem in which he v/as j health offiter held by the red-blooded men of this province. / Professor Edwards' Influence has been powerful among the athletic fra-.ternity.' A good, clean sport, fair almost to a fault, he dominated the situation which arose during the exciting days when semi-professionalism was being stamaed out In this province and displaced by amateurism. Although his Influence was felt in all branches of athletics, his greatest for the duration of the war, the only teams which were to be recognized being those whose members .'wer6 wearing khaki. Prof. Edwards' liad etorms of abuse heaped upon his head because of his decision, but that he was right no one now doubts. Immediately after this Professor Edwards set himself to the work of or-, ganizing a military reague in Edmon-tohVthls league to embrace all branches of athletics. This league, too, was a success, and in this he was given great assistance by "Deacon" White. The league was divided into several sections, separate leagues of baseball, cricket, football and track athletics being formed. It was an inter-battalion affair^and championships were decided, but owing to the movements of thie troops overseas it was impossible for the provincial honors to be decided. Professor Edwards was the son of thfe late Dr.- O. C. Edwards, of Mac--leod, one of the pioneer physicians of the province, and of Mrs. O. C.. Edwards, who is prominent In women's work In Alberta. He was a graduate of McGlll university, and was a lecturer there before coming to Alberta to take a chair in the newly-formed University of Alberta. Alberta sportsmen have lost a real friend and leader in the passing of Prof. W. M.uir Edwards. BUENOS AIRES.-(Correspondence of the Associated � Press.)-The purchase of two and a half million toas of Argentine wheat by the allied governments has brought good profits into the pockets of German grain brbkerH in Buenos Aires despite strict instructions that none of the allied wheat was to be purchased from Ge,rmans. , Today, In addition to having made a nice profit put of the allied trade, the Germans imvA.abo.ut a million sacks of, wheat stpi'ed-^, along the wharves .to,;jje sold someiphthese days, probably biack to-Argi^'tinai" at prices much abpve cpst.v V '^  �..
