PAT CONNOLLY WRESTLES IN BUTTE TOMORROW Butte, Nov. a few of Pat Connolly's close friends share tho wrestler's confidence that he may spring a surprise when he meets Strangler Lewis at the Broadway on Thanksgiving afternoon, the majority of the local fans are speculating on the probable length of the match. Some wagers are being made that Connolly lasts an ho.ur. Lewis is due to arrive in Butte this evening. Con nolly is trained to the minute and is fast and as hard as a piece of India rubber. He staked everything on this match. Connolly has never.been afraid of the Lewis type of wrestler- big, brawny, but slow.' The men will wrestle in a regula- tion IS-foot ring and straight catch- as-catch-can rules will prevail. FORD GARAGE 1232 THIRD AVE. S., LETHBRIDGE 24-Hour Service Caters to Ford Business.

GOLF ;RULES NEED REVISION Ant Hill Must Be "Picked Up If in the, Way According to the rules of golf only things on u ptitting green raayj be scraped aside' with :i worm cabts, snow and ice. All other loose impediments must be lifted. Many, golfers arc of the opinion that ant hills are ir. the same category with worm casts uml that it is jiermis- sibje to scrape these aside, as it is- almost Impossible" to pick them up. j Recently the tiuesiion was put toj Howard P. Whitney, secretary of the; United States Golf association, ami] this is" his answer: "In regard to I your question would say that ant hills} are included .under objects'that musti be lifted and not brushed aside on, 'putting greens." Yet, coming downj to facts, it. seems a bit absurd. Any, one. who has ever attempted to pick! up an ant hill realizes what an almost j impossible feat it is; yet, according to tho strict Interpretation of the rules, four things and only four mayj be scraped or brushed aside. You mayj scrape the worm cast, but not thej worm, which nuist be picked up. The woman golfer who would perform that task has yet to be found; you might as well ask her to pick up a spider or a dead mouse. One of these days a. point may be reached -where a little more common sense will be injected into the rules.

EXCLUSIVE AGENTS FOR DIAMOND TIRES Squeegee Tread Baalim Motor Co. HARRY HOLMAN, MANAGER Gibbons Ready to Meet Dillon in 20-round Bout I (By J. H. Ritchie. I Mike Gibbons is perfebtly willing to fight Jhck Dillon over tho 20 round route before any club offering an ade- quate emolument. He will not take Dillon on for or anything like that, but says that if the stories of hirtb from New Orleans, Tia Juana :or Laredo are correct-he Is greatly pleas- ed to learn that are genUeme.ii In the world who. to offer Him up as a lamb, sacrifice .on the pagan altars of the Booster Bearavt. "II would like U) box Dillon SO said Mike. "Not for pleasure, 6r philanthropy, 'or just for the exer- cise, but -before any club, with-the the willingness to offer what a fight of that sort would he worth. The Weight? "There is another littlo detail we wotlld have to adjust and that Is the subject of weight. In a 20 round bout Dillon would have to come down somewhere near tho middleweight limit. I know just what I was doing when 1 set the scale at 163 pounds H o'clock for our recent fight as that l was for IJO minutes' work. It would he different were we golnji to step 20 rounds. "Dillon is a husky chap, even iuore burly than he looks. He is very strong and .this tefof most in his favor in in- fighting.. I boxed a real light heavy- weight, but I would not cnre to mon- key with a light heavyweight of the class of1'Dillon for 30 rounds. I might, at the outside, allow Dillon to weigh 160 pounds for a 20 ro.und fight, but -.vpuld noj, want him to weigh more. He can make 153 without hurting his strength or speed or stamina a bit, I'd tackle him again anywhere at 1G3 for ,10 rounds, but that is giving him margin enough. Ambition "I have always wanted to box 20 rounds and know I can go the route. I have boxed 15 rounds a number of times and can go the other five I know." Gibbons says he has no engage- ments in sight at present, b.ut has a highly attuned ear for the first spark- ling of a wireless of any promoter who may want to use him. Some of the new flats need chandeliers, or Jauitdry tubs and the price of coal making landlords gnash their teeth so Michael, president and treasurer of (he Mike Abbotts .Estate :com- pany, will lend a tender ear to tho se- ductive clang of any promoter's gold coins.
