Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 2, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD ^DNESbAY, OCTOBER 2, 101* "BRINGING UP FATHER" By G.

What a crude �bunch, of heefers they are! Cow Town! Beefers! Get the connection? ' Ever since the Calgary intermediates came to Lethbrldge and were humbled in the dust in Saturday's double header, the Calgary hunch has �been working overtime establishing alibis. It was the same thfng at Medicine Hat where another aggregation, the Juniors, were bumped twice in the same spot the same day.

HE'LL FIX IT Rear Dalla* Hotel (Upstairs) himself trying to excuse tha Calgary bunch. No excuses are needed. The Calgary boys are snappy little players but they ran up against something a little better here. The big alibi of course is that the Lethbrldge team was composed of seniors. Yes, seniors like Wade Ridpath who is 15 years of age; seniors like Ferko, Prendergast, Kennedy, Sang, Fitzpat-rick, and the rest of them, all of whom have still to accept their eighteenth birthday gifts. Then there is the usual grouse about the umpire. That's old stuff, though it may still be young and tender up in the Midnapore bushes. And of course Prendergast is from Macleod. That's another kick. As a matter of fact Prendergast is a great big country kid from Monarch who never saw a baseball hardly till this year. But he's a comer, and will be playing senior ball next year even if he isn't 17 years of age. The Albertan critic (?) says that at the games here there were 12 spectators of whom 11 had comps. "Sail-right old top, the Calgary boys got all the expenses they asked for, and the Calgary Albertan a few days ago admitted that if a junior game were staged there it would draw at the rate of about $5 per thousand." ( And then he throws a final lingering fit this way: "Lethbridge has got hold of the wrong end of the stick altogether. The Monarchs are juniors, all being under the age of seventeen and a half years. They may have been cocky on the .field, but they certainly showed the senior team of Lethbridge some real classy baseball. "It is said only four hits were gathered off Prendergast's pitching. Bel-ton got two, Scott two, Salvage two, Palfrey one, Lawther two and Thompson one, there are the four (?) hits. It could be easily said that ten hits would score more than six runs, but when a player gets called out for knocking the second base out of place he hasn't much of a chance to do anything on hiB hit. "Cow Town artists are we. Well, that is better than being from Bull Town. Wonder where they go't seven double plays? We were there and only 'saw one." Keep It up, old top, it's a great life if you don't weaken. GOLF FANS DROP FREAK SCHEMES Game Needs No Innovations and Seldom Do Inventions Meet With Favor. TAKES EUROPE Queer Turn of Affairs in Baseball-Dead Here, Carries the Continent. HENINGER SELLS "BABE" GOT $1,300 FOR GAME ' For pitching nine innings against the Hartford, Conn., club Sunday, Babe Ruth received more money than he Rot out of the world's Beries with the Cubs. For working that one game iRuth was given $1300, while in the siz world's series games his share was less than $1100. Ruth is in big demand throughout New England and the independent club which played against Hartford had to bid high to get the big Red Sox hurler to pitch the game. The game was extensively advertised and an immense crowd turned out to see Babe pitch and win his game. He did not hit any home runs, however. Gray Dort Motor Cars Advance' Rumely Engines Sharpies Cream Separators GIVE US A CALL ALLEN JACK OPPOSITE LETHBRIDGE HOTEL RHONE 1544 With 1,000,000 golfers in the United States, little wonder that the inventive mind occasionally offers suggestions which threaten to send the nncient game and its traditions a-g!immering. Inventions rarely received encouragement for "golf is golf," and meant to be payed as "she is writ," and for that reason the iconoclasts seldom make more than a momentary flash ere fading away to utter and lasting oblivion. ' For instance qpe Is at a loss to know why anyone could suggest the substitution of yellow for white paint on a golf ball. It has been claimed that under certain conditions white is hard on the eyes; that on a very bright day a more neutral color would be serviceable. Yet golfers have played for a good many years and the sun has shone as brightly in the past as it does at present. It would be hard to get a better contrast than the white bal on the green turf. So far as the trade goes, there hare been comparatively few recommendations to change the color of tho ball, though recently a man who iB a frequenter to the Lido links, left an order with a prominent sporting goods house, calling for a dozen of one of the latest makes of rubber cores to be painted red. His reason was that when his shots were wandering among the glistening white shells, the, caddie had trouble in locating the sphere. Consequently, he figured it out, thai a red object would be much easier to distinguish. Occasionally some one comes along with a new idea in the form of a club, but these innovations rarely prove practicable. Not long since a man had a new-fangled putter, with a head of abnormal sise, and a mirror attachment on the shaft. He thought he had something that was likely to revolutionize the short game, but received no encouragement from the manufacturer to;whom he showed the club. After all, the same old saying, "It's the man behind the club," continues to apply. New Ybrk, Oct. 2.-Baseball is practically dead in America simply because the professional business is stopped for the period of the war, but the odd part of it is that the game has been transferred to Europe. Over there the championship season comes to an end this week in Engand, France and Italy. In Italy the game will be played more or less all winter. The Italians seem to have gone wild over the game and pleas for balls, bats and material come incessantly. Two teams are playing in Rome every Saturday and Sunday and drawing well. England aready has formed a "major league" for next year and baseball in France will continue until after the holidays in the southern rest camps near the Riviera. The French Government has made baseball training compulsory, and for the last fortnight Johnny Evers has been instructing General Vidal's corps at a camp near the; Swiss border. Imagine "The Crab'Vteaching a thousand 'or two Frenchmen to play ball when he speaks fifty or sixty words of French. At that 'if Johnny starts "crabbing" he can be understood in any language. WOLGAST BACK TO NATURE Former Lightweight Champion comes Farmer Be- EVERS TO CUSS IN FRENCH Player Prepares to Roast Bill Kiem. N Umpire Paris-After the war it is going to be tough for baseball umpires, Bill Klem in particular, for Johnny Evers is studying French. The little Trojan, who is now director of baseball for the Knights of Columbus in France, has a dire purpose for his study of French. It came out when he met Hank Gowdy, the Boston Braves star, the other day. "Say, Hank, how do you cuss in I French?" queried Evers. | "What do you want to know that I for?" asked Gowdy. "Well, I expect the war will be over by next season and I'll be back In the States playing ball again. When I get out on the lot I want to be able to tel! Bill Klem what I think of him, and I'm going to say it in French, so he won't understand it. He can't put me off the field then," quoth Johnny.

"THE HOUSE OF SERVICE" Ad Wolgast, former ruler of the lightweights, has heard the call of nature again. The one-time feared Michigan wildcat is how a farmer in northern Wisconsin. Wolgast since leaving a sanitarium some months ago has been idle in Milwaukee, although he occasionally made trips through Michigan with an old motion picture film of the memorable Wolgast-Nelson championship go. This, however, did not prove remunerative and the little Dutchman has been financially embarrassed ever since. He made several futile attempts to obtain work-of a government nature-but was always turned down. It is said that a Milwaukee friend obtained the farming position for him. Up to this time Wolgast has ' been living with a brother. CORNWALL FOR N. L. U. Toronto, Oct. 1.-It is understood that "Newsy" Lalonde is making arrangements to transfer the Leaside Indian lacrosse team to Cornwall next season and play them rn the National Lacrosse Union.

QUINN BUYS TORONTOS OUIMET QUITS GOLF Boston, Friday.-Lieutenant Francis Ouimet announced last night that he will play no more golf for the period of the war. Since joining the army about a year ago he has participated in many matches for tho Red Cross and for the Camp Devens Athetic Equipment fund, raising a large sum of money. Since receiving his commission he has been finding it difficult to spare the time for these contests. INVESTIGATE B. C.

GOES TO PEACE RIVER Edmonton, Sept. 28.-Hon. F. B. Carvell, minister of public works In the union government, is In the city and with Hon. J. A.

Duncan Marshall, and W. W. Cory, deputy minister of the Interior, will accompany them. Edmonton, Sept. 30.-At the sheep sale held in Wetaskiwin Friday by J. T. Heninger of Lethbridge only 300 were sold by auction, four or five hxin-dred were sold afterward by private sale and the whole of the remainder of 2000 went to Simon Downle and sons of Carstairs the following morning. The sheep were offered by auction by George L. Owens of Wetaskiwin, but after about 300 had been sold Mr. Heninger realized that the buyers were hot ready to pay the price he believed the sheep to be worth so withdrew the remainder from sale. A reserve of $16 had been placed on the ewes, but on a request that the sale be thrown open again, the owner offered a flat rate of $15.50 to anyone who wanted to buy, and also gave the same price to those who had already bought in sheep by auction at $16 and $16.25. Another 300 or 400 were sold after the regular sale in this way and the following morning Fred Downie arrived in town and bought the rest of the lot, some 1300. About 700 were sold at $15.50 that day, bringing in $10,850. These sheep were brought up from the Lethbridge ranch about six weeks ago on account of the drouth in the south country, and Mr. Heninger is very sincere in his praise of the fodder for sheep as supplied in this country. He believes there are thousands of gold dollars going to waste here every year by reason of their being no sheep on these splendid pastures, and believes that in a few years this part of the country will be dotted witl small sheep ranches. He did not hesitate to say that the sheep had done better up here than in the south country, and the lambs were a third larger. His only reason for shipping back south for the winter was to have all his stuff under the one head, and he had accumulated there almost enough feed for the winter. Mr. Heninger has just bought out a couple of ranches on Kipp Coulee belonging to the Rutherford Bros, and taken over about 4000 sheep with these ranches. His sheep were practically all young ewes. There were about fifty pure bred Shrop Tarns which he sold privately at an average of $35. The ewes were mostly a Lincoln and Shrop cross with the Ramelet, and were bred up to about three- quarters and seven-eighths on the heavier type. The sheep were not looking their best, having been driven in overland the 22 miles through the mud, and this may have deterred from buying some farmers used to the longer form sheep. The principal reason would seem to have been, however, that the sale had not been advertised for a sufficiently long time, and that the farmers were still more or less uncertain as to the outcome of their harvest. Mr. Heninger is fitting up some 2000 wethers at his ranch at Millet for the Edmonton market. L E Ottawa, Oct. 1.-The secretary of atate has issued warrants under the consolidated orders respecting censorship forbidding tha possession in Canada of copies of two largely circulated and important foreign language publications of an extremely revolutionary and socialistic type published in Winnipeg. Both of these newspapers are printed in the same office. One, a newspaper of many years' standing, is entitled the "Rob-ertchyjanarod" and is published in the Ukrainian language. The other, which is under distinct control, although printed on the same presses as this paper, is in the Russian language and entitled the "Rabotchyjanarod." These papers have been publishing matter advocating the doctrines and practices of the Russian Bolsheviki and have published considerable matter in criticism of the action of the allied powers in .intervening in Siberia. An increase of ten dollars a month has been given' to members of the Ottawa police force. doctor attended to 500. The situation there is now well in hand. � " BUY YOUR GIRLS' BOOTS AT THE HUDSON'S BAY SHOE SALE Central Repair Shop ALL KINDS OF AUTO REPAIR WORK HANDLED PROMPTLY AND CAREFULLY. Storage.
