Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 4, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX THE LETHBM06B &ML1 HERALD FRIDAY, OCTOBER 4, 191* TO APPOINT FAIR The Sport Page BALL PLAYERS' "SAFETY FIRST" IE / . (Philadelphia Ledger) The weeks developments admit of no other conclusion than that the 1�11 player -who signed -with the "Paint and Putty .League' as the alternative of "work or fight" will be obliged to fight. Many players deserted the diamond at different period^ during the playing season in order to take up employment in shipyards and munition plants, their action generally being construed to mean they would prefer to work than fight. At the end of the season nine out of ten players rushed to these ostensible havens in preference to seeking other places in conformity to the government's interpretation of essential employment In the main little censure can be attached to them for accepting positions in shipyards, for the reason that such employment was made specially attractive to them by agents, who held out inducements in the form of easy jobs with ball-playing as a means of extra compensation. However, in view of the various interpretations recently placed upon essential employment JJy General Crowder and the revelations made at Hog Island and other similar plants, few ball, players are essential adjuncts to the shipbuilding industry. Except jn. rare cases no other' conclusion could'be arrived at.

Phone 816 W^^^^^TAKEYOUR^^^^J RADIATOR TROUBLE TO ANDY HE'LL FIX IT Rear Dallas Hotel (Upstair*) was that a man in claiming exemption on the plea that he was engaged in an essential employment would ha obliged to prove that he was essential to the essential. On its face the ball player would have ditficulty in proving such a case. To jump from the diamond to a shipyard and subsequently prove that he was a skilled craftsman would entail a previous knowledge and experience with a riveting machine or carpenters adz. There is no doubt the one thing more than any other which has led the public to view with suspicion the motives of the ball player has been his desire to serve the country in a capacity �which at the same time would permit him to pick up a little easy money playing ball. He has been loath to forget the diamond absolutely. There have been few Hank Gowdys among the fraternity. Naturally, the comparisons have been invidious. The butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker, in entering the service has disassociated himself entirely from his former vocation. Why not the ball player? the public aBks. General Crowder has answered this question. He has asserted that all industries must be prepared to lose men when the new draft quotas are called, and shipyards will be no exception. Ship-workers who have been exempted from military service under the old draft Jaw will be obliged to seek deferred classification. A Washington news item on the' subject says: "It can be stated safely many employes of shipyards who are not essential to the actual building of ships or are not skilled ship workmen will be denied deferred classification upon industrial grounds. Baseball players who have found the yards a haven probably will be called to the colors." This course already has been followed In the case of Dutch Leonard, formerly of the Boston Americans, who left the Red Sox soon after the work-or-fight OTder wa9 issued to enter the Pore River shipyard at i Quincy, Mass. Leonard has been refused deferred classification as a skilled mechanic and placed in Class 1 of the draft. The local board's action in his case is an intimation of what other local boards will do in the case of ball players, as each case will be handled individually by the local boards, working under instructions from the provost marshal's department. L MACLEOD TO PLAY Real Old-Time Knockouts Marked Their Battles for Middleweight Title. the de-and APPROACH SHOT !8 MOST USEFUL Gotfing critics agree, almost without exception, that the most useful shot is the approach. Long, accurate drives are essential, of course, to a good game, but championships usually are won on the green and the approaching makes this possible. Often long drivers who are unable to approach with consistency never get close to the coveted honors. NO COAL FOR GOLF  CLUB HOUSES The "nineteenth" hole of the golf coarse is going into chilly retirement this winter. Golfers may play the royal and ancient game as often as they wish during the winter months, but the U. S. fuel administration has ruled that there are to be no fire3 for heating golf clubrooms. Billy Fapke first mingled with Stanley Ketchel in Milwaukee on June 4, 1908. He lost that battle in the first round, although he stayed the full ten innings. The Illinois Thunderbolt, had no sooner entered the ring than the boy from the west sent over his south paw in a terrific punch to the jaw, sending Billy sprawling to the ground. Billy, with a look of surprise in his face, promptly came up again, but the blow had deprived him of all his steam. He slam-banged his way through the remaining nine rounds, but his head was out of commission, and he scarcely knew what he was doing. That slugging match was decidedly Ketchel's bout, but supporters of the Illinois boy clared he had lost on a fluke, clamored for another chance. This time Vernon, Cal., was the scene of the battle, and'Sept. 7, 1908, was the date. This was Labor Day, and a big crowd filled Tom Carey's arena. The middleweight title now clearly rested between Papke and Ketchel, and the victor could rightfully declare his right to It. Tens of thousands of dollars were wagered on the result. Papke was returned the winner hy exactly the same method that Ketchel had used in Milwaukee. The Illinois hoy barely touched Stanley's glove, and then sent a hard right to Ketchel's jaw. The Michigan Assassin" went down like a log and the referee had counted seven before he struggled to his feet. Papke sent over another, and this time Jim Jeffries, who was acting as referee, counted nine before Ketchel was able to stagger up. As Papke had been defeated with the first blow in the first Ketchel-Papke battle, so was Ketchel now given a dose of his own medicine. Like one in a dream, Stanley fought on, dogged and with one eye ont of commission. In the twelfth round Jef-ries put an end to the slaughter, and Papke became the recognized middleweight champion of the world. He did not long retain the title, for in the following November, at Colma, he was knocked out by Ketchel in the eleventh round. For a fourth time they met, July 5, 1909, also at Colma, and Ketchel won in twenty rounds. Upon the death, of Ketchel, Billy again laid claim to the title, but he had lost his old-time- form and could not come back. I While Calgary and Medicine Hat are playing a five game series for the cheese championship in junior baseball circles, Macleod wants Lethbridge to play off for the real championship. Macleod figures that as Lethbridge decisively defeated the Calgary' team which is.playing oft with Medicine Hat there can be no doubt that Lethbridge represents the best there is in teams under 18 years old in the province. Following is . the letter from the Macleod team: "Having heard of the results of Saturday's games, we feel that we are in a position to challenge you for the championship of the province, which honor you now hold. We will be willing to play either here or in Leth bridge on Wednesday, October 9th, We would like to know how many games you would desire to play, and also the conditions under which you would play the said games. Hoping to hear from you with a favorable reply immediately, we remain, Macleod Baseball Club, Per S. Clement Ferguson, Secretary. A. Watson Captain.) It is likely a series will be arranged, i-^i T Judge Jackson Heard Cases at Cardston-Town Council Meeting. BOXING VERY POPULAR IN OLD LONDON NOW According to' reports boxing was never before so popular as it Is in London today. The National Sporting club is the scene of ^weekly bouts he-tween men of the service, and the American soldiers and sailors are taking an active part in the great revival of the sport. It is predicted by prominent sporting writers that after the war the boxing game will be more popular than ever before and that international bouts will be a common occurrence. LEWIS OR LEONARD?

C. H. A. President Frank Patrick, of Vancouver, leaves for Seattle tonight and he announced that he expected representatives present at the meeting from Seattle, Portland, Victoria, and Vancouver.

Jim Barnes leads the pros with $75,000 in 85 contests. Jack Hutchinson and Bob McDonald also have brought in large Bums in the last few weeks. More than $8000 was collected at Chicc^: when Evans and Edwards were beaten at Old Elm. After reading the accounts of the Benny Leonard-Ted Lewis fight in the New York papers it is difficult to decide who won the engagement. Several of the ringside critics say it was Lewis' fight all the way, while almost, as many contend that Leonard was the pacemaker and won by a wide margin. One critic says that Leonard was baffled by Lewis' lightning fast left punches, while another says that Lewis would have had an even break had he been able to avoid Leonard's wicked left. Take your pick. You can probably make as good a guess from.3000 miles as.the "birds" who saw the go. Ten town TROUBLE IN BOLSHEVIKI CABINET Vladivostok, Sunday, Sept. 22-Serious trouble has occurred at Omsk between the cabinet recently organized there and other leaders. An attempt was made, under the leadership of Minister of War Michaelov, to force a resignation of the cabinet.

It was a perfect head and weighed almost seven pounds. He says he has a barrel full more as good. Yet some people try to tell us garden produce will not grown In this south country. Our school board is quick to recognize its duty. They are now building a line new stable east of the consolidated school to house the pupils horses during the winter* and a fenced pasture for summer. Mr. Ben Ellert has'moved into his new house near the school. This is one of the most up-to-date houses in the village, having bath, hot and cold water, sewerage, electric light, equal to tho best to be had in any city. On Friday evening the'Union church choir held a social in the home of Mrs. Steele to bid farewall to Mr. Stott, our minister. The musical treat of the evening was the violin solos by Miss Smith of tho school staff. Mr. Stover in a few well chosen words outlined the work of the choir which has presented the church with hymn bcoks and special muBic and books for their own use entirely by their own efforts. Special thanks being given to our minister for his efforts in securing a splendid new organ for us, and concluded by presenting Mr. Stott with a small token .of the choir's esteem in the form- of a hymn book with music. Mr. Stott returns to Winnipeg on Monday to continue his studies. Saturday, was "Child's Welfare" tag day in Milk River under the auspices of the Women's Institute. Mesdames Hunt and Doeherty tagged to the amount of $13.30. Mr. Geo.

N. Barker, the untiring secretary and chief worker in the Red Cross has posted notices to this effect. At the recent sittings of the oourt here, presided over by His Honor Judge Jackson, there were two appeals from the assessment of the town, viz Card Estate represented by S. Williams, executor, and Chief Mountain Cemetery by H. Mcintosh, the man ager. Both appeals were granted and values were reduced aB requested by the appellants. In the last two years practically all appeals from over as sessment have been granted in a similar way, and it has resulted to this point. First, that the town will have to increase the mills for which all property Is assessed and run them up to about 40 mills on the dollar or maintain the present valuation. It appears to be a matter of choice with the general public and all the ratepayers as to which course they pursue, as there are a largo number of them who expect to appeal next year, in fact probably the majority, unless it is mutually agreed otherwise. The fact remains that a certain sum must be raised by the ratable property in Cardston and if it does not come in one way it undoubtedly will in another. Town Council -Meets Last evening the town council meeting was In session with all present excepting Mr. J. C. Cahoon who was excused on account of the death of bis father, Mr. J. C. C.

Woolf from Salt Lake City, formerly of Cardston, is a business visitor and will probably be here for two or three weeks. Mr. R. O. Remington, recently operated on for appendicitis by Doctors Pickup and Lynn is reported as progressing as satisfactorily as could be expected.
