Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 5, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX T*wr t.ETHI5RIDGE DAILTT HEnAttJ anus SATURDAY, OCTOBER 5, 19J8 Junior Games In Calgary-bertan Critic Still Wailing. -Al- Medicine Hat junior ball team invaded Calgary on Thursday and broke even, winning the first encounter 5 to 2 and losing the second 2 to 1". Calgary played practically the same lineup as appeared here last' Saturday. The Calgary Albertan continues the serial story, thusly: Just as soon as the Hat paper stops crabbing we hear once more from our old friend the Lethbridge Herald. It's funny how "these papers get hold of the wrong end of the stick so easy. If the many readers remember rightly the Albertan said that the Monarchs were juniors that had-never played in the Senior league, and while we say that Lethbridge had seniors we did not directly state that they were over age. If the Monarchs had taken Dod Lewis, "Fat" Turner, Freddy "Watts and Charlie Huffman out of the local senior league (these boys are all under age)ii' they would have needed nothing but those boys and an adding machine on their trip. If the Lethbridge Herald don't think we got ten hits let.them tell us outright. The writer of this story made two, together with two each from Lawther, Savage and Scott the first time on base. Theres three for yon with three men in one innings. Don't worry, old boy, any team who can play two games within 5 minutes of each other, with two hours' sleep during the night, won't weaken.

ANDY HE'LL FIX IT Rear Dallas Hotel (Upstairs) I OF A NEWSPAPER Ottawa, Oct. 4.-When the international joint commission resumed consideration this morning of the New York and Ontario Power company's application, Commissioner Mignault, of Montreal, strongly criticized the editorial suggestion of a Montreal paper that,*"the resolute refusal of three' Canadian" commissioners, in a tribunal of six," Would be sufficient to ensure the application's rejection. "The �' yugg^siion,".' Commissioner Mignault said, "that the three Canadian commissioners. resolutely refuse to entertain-the application and thus preclude any possibility of its being determined on its merits. I cannot regard otherwise than as an insult, which I hope was not deliberate, to the honor and integrity of the Canadian commissioners." The commissioners, Mr. Mignault went on, had subscribed a solemn declaration that they would faithfully and - Impartially perform the duties imposed on them by treaty. This treaty -wohH speedily become a dead letter "if the members of this tribunal were to divide equally on national lines, without any regard to the claims of justice and honest dealing and without any respect for the solemn oath of impartiality which they have subscribed." Counsel for the marine association, the United States and the state of New York, associated themselves with the criticism. Argument in the case then proceeded. Mr. Van Kennen, Counsel for the company, reviewed the grants under which the original grantees secured'their title. Commissioner Mignault, having suggested that the company should have gone to the United States and Canadian governments before ask'ng the commission tp deal with this matter, Judge Koontz, the representative of the United States government, said that the Washington authorities had advised the company to go before the commission and expressed the opinion that the facts being, adduced would prove of assistance to both governments In finally dealing with the matter* He explained that, owing to congress and the senate holding different views as to federal and state rights, $>ere is no general water power bill at present in force across the border. Fortunate indeed are the members who have the time *rb enjoy a round of the course these days, but it is not for the storekeeper or the clerks, the days are short now, and the light fails quickly after 6 o'clock, and alas! the half holiday is no more. Hurry the Action in the Game and Cut Out Three-Day Features. Hard luck, still we will warsel through, although it would not have ruined the business men of the city had the half holiday been continued through the winter. It works satisfactorily in other cities" in Canada, why not in Lethbridge. Anywhere I have resided during the last twenty years whether in town or country village, the weekly half holiday was in force all the year round and no one was a loser or felt any inconvenience. We seem to be a little way behind the times here in Lethbridge. However, I am optimistic enough to look for a' forward step being taken next season. The pity is that more of the merchants don't join the Golf Club;'*if they did-and I am expecting more ofthtem to take up the game-they would soon realize the benefits to be derived from a half holiday. What better' ..enjoyment can- anyone-have than ah- afternoon on the "� link*/ One forgets his business worries-yoa^bave no time to think about tb~ein--wiien playing golf. Besides, the exercise: A the open -air tends to improve ~tki" health.  It is invigorating and brings new life to the tired and worried/business man. Think it over you-'who have never tried it. Ask any of the new members who joined this year and hear.what they have got to say about tt>. I am certain they will strongly recommend you to give it a trial. Your "cares and troubles soon disappear when playing a round with that particular friend of yours-you know the one I mean, the one from whom you want to get a bit of your own back. Challepge him to play you a game for one, two, or even three balls and do your -- to knock the spots off him.  "Eh. Man, it's a great game." v ' ( Think of the satisfaction you 'get from holing a long putt or flicking a mashie piteh and winning the match at the last hole.

I have witnessed many exciting finishes at the 19th hole. We can only hope that after this horrible war is ended that the j glorious 19th will come to life again.; Those who know and used to finish \ their games there, will, I believe welcome it back with open arms. The competitions for the season are nearly finished and the club has reason to be proud of this years success. The members have been most enthusiastic and there has been a decided all-round improvement in their play which promises-well for next year. Although the end of the golfing season is drawing near, still there should be many good golfing days between now and Christmas. Optimistic do you say? Whoever heard of a golfer being anything else? Dout put your clubs away for the winter, the end of the season is not yet. Look for the good days and seize the opportunity to whack that ball round the links for all you a^s worth; even when the cold days come you can keep yourself in form by practising swinging,, biit oh! do be careful if you are doing it in your room, keep your eye on the electric globe-it is not rubber cored and a wee bit more expensive. I hope the members are keeping in mind the Rod Cross competition on Thanksgiving Day. Let us have a record entry. I have not heard any result of the tie for �nd prize, in the Captain's Competition. Hurry up you members who are interested, there's a darned fine club waiting for the winner. I understand there is to be a finish to the two-bits competition this weekend. Partners will be drawn, particulars of which will appear in the Herald. Prizes have been promised and there should be a good turn out of players.

American sport writers are having lots of fun these days pulling the grand old game of. cricket to places and have already "reformed" the game to meet with their ideas. While there are, of course, a few things to be said against cricket, baseball, or, in fact, any other game, sport in this country has a long way i to go before the true sporting, feeling as it exists in England is reached. Cricket is somewhat on a par with curling in this country, played solely for the sport that there is in it, and not simply to win at any cost. Here are the predictions of an .American writer, who brings Lord Hawke into print as favoring changes in the cricket rules: Reformation Coming One of the international reactions resulting from the; war is almost sure to be a reformation in cricket, I and it will be due largely to the re-, suits of disseminating baseball among the British. I A full fledged cricket match lasts three days, to say nothing- of time taken out for tea. A three-day game may naturally ^be  expected to take more' time- than- the average man making a living;; can spare. Even a three-day poker game becomes a sore trial to the nerves before the end, no matter if a fellow be winning. The talk in England seems to be along Ihe lines, first, of hurrying the action in cricket; second, to shorten the length of the games. > Most Americans are familiar with the tale credited to the late Tim Hirst, the most erratic and likeable of all baseball umpires and boxing referees. Tim went abroad some years before his death and returned with this yarn. He said he was in Dublin on Thursday, when he met one of England's most famous cricketers. Tim knew there was a big match on and that th*ls man belonged to one of the teams. " asked him." said . Tim, "if the match had been cancelled." "Of course the match is on, dear old chap, and I am vm it," he replied, "but I don't go to bat until Saturday." Lord Hawke is Awake One of those who recognize that cricket may undergo radical modification, although he is naturally extremely conservative and a supporter of the old order, is Lord Hawke, five times president of the Maryle-Bone Cricket Club, which was founded in 1787, and captain of the Yorkshire County, club, a great player and a great authority. In a recent interview, Lord Hawke admitted that he thought the game wduld "need a little brightening up." He said in part:: "It may be some of the players were growing a little tedious- just a Ijttle dull--and that the game will need a little brightening, but that need not "mean panic legislation. The plodding, self-made batsman- like some self-made men- Is inclined sometimes to bore-one terribly, and I must say there are one or two players of prominence wjo are so painfully slow that you" could not persuade me to pay to see them at the wickets." Baseball Lacks Subtlety? That Lord Hawke does not realize the extraordinary complexities of which baseball is capable, and the unlimited variations of team work and quick thinking which, makes the game one of almost daily surprises to men who .have played or written for twenty or forty years, ' is proved by the following of his remarks comparing cricket and the American sport:: : "I have seen basebalt in its native land. It is a good game, but ' the English crowd is not the stuff of which your baseball 'fan' is made. Somehow baseball-seems to lack the charm and the fascinating subtleties which go to make cricket the Incomparable Hport it -is. The ball players throw with great accuracy, and the catching is wonderfully spectacular, but it is lacking in the, fine art of say, a .well-judged piece of fielding on the cricket field. The pitcher may have something to teach us in the matter of 'curves' and swerving, but"1 there Is not 'much In It." (From Our Own Correspondent) Diamond City, Alta., October. 4.- The annual meeting of the Red Cross was held in the school house, when the officers for the next year were elected. This meeting occurred on Tuesday when the secretary's report was read, after an address by the president, J. JL. Parker. This report showed that since the bra'peh-wjas formed in March 1st last the'sum of $1022 was raised, and that of this sum $500 had been sent to the Headquarters office at Calgary. Also 1351 "articles had been made by the lady members of the society and dis patched and that there was about $75 of material left and a small sum in the secretarys hands. Dr. Inkrote presented the report and the meeting was addressed by Mr. W. S. Ball of Lethbridge who complimented the local on th good showing made. He gave a most interesting talk on the war, showing the work that had to bo done in the formation of the battalions, and how they had, thanks to the British navy, been safe ly got across the ocean without the loss of a single man. Great loss of klife had resulted of course at the front, and no matter how well the people at home subscribed funds to the support of the Red Cross, it was small in comparison with the sacrifices made by the heroes who had died for their country, and those others even perhaps more fortunate who had either been' wounded : > ? > ? : * > > ? * ?
