Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 3, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX N THE LErrtBRIDGE DAILY HERALD THURSDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1018 "BRINGING UP FATHER" By G. McManus I'D LOVE TO OME ^EAT�-- ^HX-THV^J TOVN ENOU, that an arrangement was made to. have- the Monarchs play here, that a guarantee was given by the locals, and that on Thursday afternoon after arrangements had been completed locally word came that the Monarchs would not be coming but that the Vies would come instead. "We insinuate nothing. Our claims to the. championship under the circumstances are greater than the boastful Monarchs, and furthermore we stand ready to contest the claims of others, which the Monarchs apparently are not prepared to do, except under conditions which would give the Calgary bunch an unfair advantage. "If our youngsters can wallop the Vies by such overwhelming scores, surely the Hatters are entitled to some respect in their claims." As a matter of fact it doesn't make any difference whether the boys called themselves juniors or intermediates. The Lethbridge boys style themselves intermediates because their ages varied from 14 to 17. tured the championship of the city, and any fans who have seen this team in action know their ability on the diamond. Lawthev will pitch the opening game for Calgary, and Forbes the second. Johnson and Donaldson will pitch the games for the Hat." This reminds us of the basketball championship Calgary claimed last winter because there were no simon-pure "amateurs" anywhee else in the province except the few still alive in captivity in the wilds just north of Midnapore. Once more Calgary threatens to annex a "cheese" championship. And now comes a pleasing bit of news. Medicine Hat and Calgary are going to play off for the "provincial" championship," according to the Morning Albertan, and the Calgary team is the same as took two beatings here Saturday. Note the cool way the Calgary paper announces the "championship" series: "Arrangements have been completed with Medicine Hat and as a result the "mad hatters" will be in tha city tomorrow to hook up with the Monarchs in the first two games of a five-game series for the Provincial championship. "To bring this team in the league is incurring a great expense as a guarantee of $50 had to be put up for the Easterners. Tickets will be on sale today and tomorrow and it is to'be hoped the fans of Calgary will dig down. and help the boys make good their guarantee. "The games will be two of the fastest yet seen in this city as the teams are as evenly matched as could be hooked together. The first game will start at 2.30 sharp and the second at 5.30. The Monarchs will line up.with their usual team the same which cap- Pralrie chicken season Is now open. Tuesday saw this lid pried off for the first time in two years and those who like to tramp the stubble fields and the brushy coulees after a good bird dog are going to have their innings. John Livingstone, one of the cracks of the Lethbridge Gun Club was out Tuesday and annexed five. This is the first report. News from the foothill districts is that the birds are beginning to flock up and are fairly plentiful. The season lasts only the month of October. RECORD FOOTBALL LINEUP Many College Men Could Qualify at Camp Taylor Recently at Camp Zachary Taylor, it was decided to take stock of the material in hand, in preparation for the 191S football season. Word was sent out by Paul J. Davis athletic director, who formerly played first base for the Colonels, and who is himself an athlete of much renown, to the effect that he would like to receive a report of the players of university and college experience who had played within the past two or three years. In response to this request from the F. A. It. D. alone, no less than 700 officers and men ware listed in this category. There never was such an assemblage of gridiron celebre-tie3 in any one place, according to statistics compiled to date. It cah be seen, therefore, that the prospect of obtaining a first-class eleven is al. luring. Director Davis, who has just returned from Atlanta, expects to make some announcement of his plans soon. sees b6ost for golf A BARGAIN IS NOT HOW LITTLE YOU PAY, BUT HOW MUCH YOU GET FOR THE MONEY SPENT. OUR USED CAR DEPARTMENT OFFERS BARGAINS BIJOU MOTOR PARLORS, LTD. "THE HOU8E OF SERVICE" Failure of Baseball to Help Links Sport It is the prediction of many enthusiasts that golf will become the most popular of all sports, because of the fact that baseball games will be nonexistent next year. In all probability a great many men who have in the past spent a good part of their summer afternoons at baseball games will cast around for some other means of recreation. Golf will doubtless attract a large number of these and the clubs may again find themselves with waiting lists when the season opens next spring. From a selfish point of view the closing of the professional baseball circuits is the beat thing possible for golf but on the other hand the links game is the best conditioner for any man, and especially in these times, when high efficiency is demanded of every one. CARDSTON Cardston, Sept, 30.-.\iiss Taylor, assistant nurse at the local hospital, is leaving the early part .of next week. Another nurse is being procured from Lethbridge to assist Miss Agnes Sherin, local superintendent. The people of the district are doing practically all of their travelling by automobile now on account of the fact that it now spoils three days for anyone on the Cardston branch to do business at Lethbridge, and five days to travel to Calgary and back, on account of the poor train service. Whereas it used to take about 12 hours to go to Lethbridge and do a day's business and back, and three days to go to Calgary and return. Every farmer in the district using machinery is held up by the irregularity of the express service from three to five days, in place of one to one and a half days when the old daily-train was in vogue. Tractors stand idle, threshing machines cease to run. plows, discs, harrows and drills all stand idle "waiting for repairs." In this country with short seasons and every daylight hour in the fall and spring are needed for work, the present tri-weekly train service to Cardston, and with the train coming into Cardston in the morning and out in the afternoon, spending one hour here, it is a most direct imposition on all of the people who live south of Lethbridge. and ona that will not soon be forgotten. �� . ." The trophies and cups won by the Cardston1 board of trade and Mr. Arthur Perry are now moved into the Cahoon hotel, there on display by the board of trade. This makes a very attractive lobby for thej Cahoon hotel. ' Mrs. Major Brown Has received a telegram from Major *H. B. Brown, who has arrived in New York from England. j-: Threshing is well on, towards completion in the district, tiut on account of the hot weather this summer yields are not showing up as. good as could be hoped for. Mr. Gerald Brown, former manager of the Cahoon hotel, has gone into I business with Messrs. Brown and Matkin of the Cardston Trading Company. Mr. Harry Lee, who operates the local vulcanizing plant, is moving his business into larger quarters in the west addition of the Cahoon hotel, where he is doing a very flourishing business in the automobile tire repair line. The \veather has hot been severe on the gardens in the town and very few of them are frozen down, while it is reported from the district that flax is standing the very slight frosts and would probably make a fair crop in some parts. ( � Mr. H. D. Polsom. local lumber merchant, leaves for Vancouver shortly, where he is attending to the purchase of building supplies. The town of Cardston has bought a car load of water pipe for proposed extensions and repairs. CORNELL STOPS ATHLETES Ithaca, N. Y.-Intercollegiate athletics at Cornell university have been suspended for the duration of the war and the football schedule arranged for this fall will be cancelled, according to an announcement here by the athletic association. USE BLOODHOUNDS TO TRACE LOST CHILDREN Sudbury, Ont., Oct. 2.-Tralsned blood hounds are today assisting the parties of searchers who are scouring the woods and clearings, near Mar-sons mine, in a search for the two Finnish boys, aged 4 and 5 years, who have been missing since Monday. Several people have been lost without trace iu this locality during recent years. BARONS Barons, Oct. 1.-A highly successful entertainment was given by a company of Boy Scouts and Camp Fire Girls from Lethbridge in thev Opera House on Friday evening. Mr. Malley acted as chairman to a full house. The boys gave demonstrations of their drill, first aid, signalling, etc., and the girls besides giving demonstrations of their wbrk, sang a number of the latest patriotic songs. Altogether the entertainment was one of the best put on here recently. A meeting was held at the church on Tuesday for the purpoae of organizing Boy Scouts and Camp Fire Girls for Barons. Mrs. Bert. Protzman passed away very suddenly, of diphtheria on Saturday. She had been feeling ill for two days but had not been confined to bed and died sitting in a chair. Dr. Wallwin had only been called in shortly before death took place and immediately quarantined the house. Mrs. Protzman besides her husband leaves four small children to mourn her loss. The annual harvest thanksgiving festival was held in the church on Sunday evening, when the pastor delivered a special sermon for the occasion. The ladies of the church'had the building beautifully decorated with various kinds of produce and flowers. The produce displayed gave evidence of the productiveness of the,soil of the district and provided the parson with a good handle with which, to shake the congregation on the subject of thankfulness. There was a ',tie^d .pf_i cabbage from Mr. ErdmanT!, far A weigh-, ing 13 pounds, and enormous carrots, from the same farm. Miss Wendelboe supplied some mons.ter turnips and sugar beets; and potatoes and other produce of a quality to cause surprise in this dry season were* supplied by various other people. Sacred solos were sung by Mrs. Bruce Mc-' Clelland and Mrs. Iverson and were very much appreciated by the congregation. It was announced that Mr. Venables would preach next Sunday. A concert under the auspices of the Ladies' Aid was given in' the opera bouse on Monday evening, Mr. Mal-ley in the chair, and proved an unqualified success. Mrs. Scott opened the programme with a solo, rendered in her usual inimitable style. Mrs. Bozart of Nobleford gave several very amusing recitations which were numbered among the best items on the programme; while Mr. de Forrest of Claresholm rendered several cornet solos in a manner that left nothing to be desired. Mr. Van Dyke of Noble-ford played several piano solos in excellent style and*; Mr. Hlllerad of Claresholm surprised the audience by his excellent tenor voice. A new arrival in the district from Ontario, Miss Cameron, sang a solo in a manner that makes us wish she may "stick around" here. It need only be mentioned that Mrs. McClelland and Mrs. Iverson sang to let people who stayed away understand that they missed a treat. Mrs. Finch presided at the piano. At the close of the concert Mr. Ed. Popham disposed of the; produce from the church by auctidii'.r-Tt is gratifying to be able to report that the proceeds of the concert will be sufficient to enable the ladies aid to have certain needful repairs done to the parsonage.
