Cluett, Pcabody Co., Inc., Makers Boston, Oct. crowd of great numbers turned out today to the Braves' field for the opening game of the world's series of JfilG. The Brook- lyns, winners of the National league IJenmml, challenging American league supremacy, defended by the Hoston Hed Sox, holders of the world's championship of 1915, proved the ob- ject of wide appeal to baseball enthu- siasts. The teams WCTO favored in their first meeting by weather condi- tions closely approaching the ideal. The day was almost summerliko with only a slight tinge of autumn in the air. winch caused some spectators to bring wraps. There was no wind likely to enter into the calculations of the fielders. Clouds were fleece-like, and with no portent of ruin. Last night the line was smaller than preceded any world's series game play- ed in the city in recent years. At daybreak knots of GO persons each were gathered on the. threshold of the purk awaitjhg the opening of gates. Some slept, others walked about, while still others eagerly read the forecast of the game in the news- papers. Bonfires were lighted to burn off thu morning mists which came off the Charles river. Ixiter automobile parties began to arrive. Out of town enthusiasts poured in by automobile and trains. Many carried suitcases or boxes, serving the double purpose of seat and lunch receptacle. The bar- riers were sw.ung clear ut 9 o'clock and all were forced to pass immediate- ly into the ground. They found the ground in perfect playing condition, the scars of a season's spikes removed. I A platform to the right of the home plate aroused curiosity until the ground-keeper explained that it was for use of the moving picture men. The great capacity of field had been extended, providing- space for persons through the erection of a fence across the field. SCORE BY INNINGS First Inning .First up.

(CONTINUED FBOM FltONT PAGE) NOT ENOUGH COIN FOR WEEKS Champ Won't Meet Ross OFFER Billy Weeks lias Bitted Cow Town, j It. might be mentioned in passing Ten oM912 World's Champions Are Still Members of Boston Club After sticking round Calgary tor about 'steen days, and then having to come to Lethbridge for the only match he got in the province, Billy and his man- ager Biddy Bishop, packed their trunk and bought one-way tickets to St. Paul Mlnr.., U. S. A., despite the fact that Weeks and Young Ross each had posted as forfeit for a match to take place somewhere in the province be- tween Oct. 13th and 15th. Just why the Canadian "champion didn't stick around and pull off the flght is easily told. Nobody could see it to the tuna of J500 for Weeks, win, lose or draw. That was the mere bagatelle Bishop asked the Lethbridge SportB and Amusement Club for the honor of staging the match here. Cal- gary gave him the pickle eye when he whispered his price, and Edmonton couldn't see it that way, but there were hopes the millionaires and near Rockefellers in this neck of the woods would fall for it. But the Lethbridge club couldn't get the viewpoint, not even with tho aid of a .telescope, so Billy passed up the chance of a go with Young Ross, the only man in the province whose past experience en- titled him to the match that the Lethbridge Sports and Amuse- ment Club made the best offer for the match of any promoters in the offered New York, Oct. the 17 play- ers who represented the Boston Amer- ican league club In the famous eight- ?nme world's series with the New York Nationals in 1912, ten will be seen in the coming series to be staged Saturday. Counting the present sea- son the Red Sol have won three pen- nants and figured in three world's scries in the last five years. Victors the New York Giants in the stir- ring struggle of. 1912 by (our game's to three, with a tie contest thrown In for good measure, the Red Sox added to their prestige in 1916 by sweeping through the Philadelphia Nationals to a world's championship, four games to one. In tho 1912 scries Outfielders Hoo- per and Lewis were the aarne fast- Helding, hard-hitting players they are today. Gardner, the present third baseman, guarded the same sack; Cady and Carrtgan worked behind the home nlate. and Utility Outfielder Heh- rlksen figured as an emergency hitter, but did not play in the field. All these members of the Red combination 'participated in the series of a year ago, in addition to Janvrin, Barry, Hoblitzel, Oainor, Scott. Thomas, Ruth Shore, Leonard and Poster. In 1912 tho Boston team had a world's series batting average of .220 and a fielding average of .968. In 1915 tho ned Sox batted .264 and fielded .978. This season the show that up to within days of the close of the pennant rice the Boston club, considered as a whole, was bat ting .248 and fielding .971. Taking the figures for the two world's series ant the work of' the team for the major part of the 1916 pennant season, the grand average will be found to be: Batting, .244, and the fielding average 69. The opinion is held in some Quar ters that the outfield with Trls Spea ker missing from the lineup is not as strong as the one that played in the 1912 and the 1915 series. The' ab- sence of Barry from second base, due to injuries, is thought by certain crit ics 19 have weakened the infield de and- offence during the closing weeks of the race, and it Is contended that should he be able to participate In the series play the team will be fai more, formidable than with Barry on the bench. There is. but one opinion regarding the pitching staff, However, and a glance at the work of the twirlers who have borne the burden of the hurling and their records for the pros ent season will indicate., clearly the reason .for the Boston fans' optimism regarding the outcome of the coming contests. The averages of the leadinr pitchers, both on the basis of game: won and lost and' earned runs pe game by opponents are as follows: Shore, .600 and 2.76; Mays, .615 am 2.30; Ruth, .667 and 2.01; Leonard, .611 and 3.37; foster, .591 and 3.07; Gregg .333 SlM. pro- erappers 60 per cent of the gross re- eipts of'the match to be divided any way the contestants might decide be- ween themselves. Calgary offered 30 3r cent, on the same plan; Edmonton lidn't offer at all. The match here would have been a great drawing card. The fans wanted o see Weeks in action against a man who could have made him extend him- elf to stay in the ring. The house would have been good enough to send Weeks home with two or three hun- Ired bucks in his pocket, and if he is worth, more he has yet to prove it. ncidentally, the local club offered to my-the transportation expenses of Weeks and his manager to and from Lethbridge. Weeks will never get a letter offer ill Alberta, nor will he ever get a chance here to go on with better man. So endeth the Weeks' essoil. The Calgary Albertan lets the coast champ down easy. Here is the Alber- tan Sporting Editor's valedictory to Weeks: "Being unable to come to terms with Harry T. Hudson and his protege, Young Ross, for a match for the mid- dleweight championship of Canada, Billy Weeks, the recognized champion, and his manager, Biddy Bishop, de- parted for new fields to conquer lasl evening. Their tickets were billed to St. Paul, where Bishop has several matches in view in both St. Paul and Minneapolis, and possibly Hudson Wisconsin. Resting for a week or two in the saintly city, Weeks will head for Winnipeg, where he is match cd to meet Tommy Gibbons, a brother of Mike's, and the coming middle weight prospect of the States, in a 12 round match. By sending Weeks against men of Tomniy's calibre, Bish op is showing that he is not in the game to pick up a few stray simo leons making soft matches around the country. In Weeks he has under hib guiding hand the coming mlddleweigh champion, as in all his battles Weeks has lived up to all advance stories of his ability, demonstrating time and time again iiis cleverness with both hands and his punch that never falls to bring home the .bacon. "After the Twin City engagements are, finished, Bishop will proceed to Chicago, .-where he will pick up a heavyweight and a lightweight on his way to New York. Matches have been made for all three in the metropolis j city, Boston, Pittsburg. Philadelphia and Brooklyn'. "While Bishop and Weeks have only been in our midst for two weeks, they left a large gathering of strong friends and boosters behind them. Weeks, in all his workouts, showed he was pos- sessed of the retl goods, and all his workouts witnessed by large crowds. So any news of Weeks' bat- tles will be read with a great deal of Interest by'tho local boxing fans, who one and all wish Billy success in all his battles." to the following motions by your com- mittee: 1. That a suit- able indemnity or guarantee bond, fully protecting tho investment of for a period of four years from date of acceptance of the plant, be required at the expense of the con- tractor. 2 That any altera- tions or additions to buildings or ioundations be referred back to the contractor, he to tender on all such ad- ditions or alterations, and assume all responsibility, and that same become a part of their contract and guaran- tee. 3. We recommend the advisability of properly safeguard- ing and protecting the city against all liability of workmen's compensation, or damage or loss by fire, floods, etc.. during construction. In submitting the above we trust our efforts will aid you in arriving at a decision satisfactory to the citizens. Hespectfully submitted, The Citizens' Advisory Committee, (Sgd) ALEX SMITH, Chairman, F. COLPMAN, GBO. B. McKAY, JOHN SCOTT. B. TURNEY, C. A. LITTLE. The mayor thanked the committee or its valuable services, and said he vas more convinced than ever that wise course had been pursued.
