Raycroft of War De partment Tells Advantage of Training. Washington.-Published ' articles to the effect that boxins does not S'v" useful training us a basis for lighting: and that ihe two have no common relationship have been emphatically denied in a forma! statement issued by Dr. Joseph K. Raycroft. head of the athletic division of the war department commission on training camp activities which directs the ath letie activities in the military training camps throughout the country. The statement follows: Defends Boxing Training ! �''03tact games thai develop self-re-j liauee. courage, quick thinking and j quick decisions under fire.

Of course there are thrusts and parries in bayonet fighting that are different from any j.lead, block or counter in boxing, but the principle is the same, and the sequence of action, the body balance and the ability to taV:e advantage of  openings in the opponent's defense ; developed in boxing are fundamentally j important for the bayonet fighter. "In the final analysis all physical training in the army must have a practical military significance; boxing possesses this significance to an unusual extent, so that particular stress has been laid upon the instruction of all the soldiers,, rather than upon the development of a few experts. "In my opinion the boxing instructors are doing a very valuable Piece of work, and it is due' to their efforts that boxing in the camps i3 now regarded by many military experts i as second only to the regular mili-i ta-ry drill as a means o� developing ' the power of concentration and the ability to reach promptly and effect- 1 i ively to new situations.' ft USED CAR DEPARTMENT Elgin 3-Passenger Roadster, 1917. > f Mitchell Touring, 1917.

" - "THE HOUSE OF SERVICE" The infant who writes the baseball dope for the Calgary Albertan got next to a green apple Friday night, had a convulsion and here's the result: "For unqualified nerve we have to hand it to the sport writer of the Lethbridge Herald. Yesterday's Lethbridge paper contains a story that the Lethbridge team that defeated the Monarchs will play Macleod for the championship of Alberta. Where Lethbridge �gets' the idea that they are/ contenders for the junior championship is not known, as it was distinctly slated in the Lethbridge Herald of Saturday, Sept. 2S, that "The Monarchs of Calgary would play Lethbridge for the Intermediate Championship of Alberta." The Medicine Hat Xews also commented on this and made.. statements to the fact that the Monarchs were playing against the Intermediates. Fans may possibly think that if the Monarchs played for the intermediate championship that they would be the same and have no right to play for the junior honors, but- the Monarchs went down to play for the junior championship, and made it known after the game that the Lethbridge boys were intermediate champions of Alberta. To this the Lethbridge boys agreed and now, after a week, they come through and say that they are juniors. Even their own shortstop Kennedy, admitted that some of them were seniors, and admitted having played against Lefty Brown, of Drum-heller on the Vtiican professional team. If the Lethbridge boys think they have the best junior team in Al-I berta, they are doomed to a sad dis-J appointment, as we will bet our only | shirt that the Medicine Hat Juniors could make a clean sweep ot three straight games from that team, and that if the Monarchs played them again with Freeze and Elliott oh the line up and Savage in good shape, they will beat them any time. When a team can play with two of their best players missing, and an. outfielder catching, against an imported southpaw pit-i eher and run them 7-G they arc  r-otty j sure of giving them a beatii::.; :.'A\\ j their team intact. ! The story starts: "While Medicine jllat and Calgary are playing a five i game, series for the "cheese" cham-i pionship, Macleod wants to play for  the real championship." If Macleod J wants to play for the championship of I Alberta, they should play the winner of the Calgary-Medicine Hat series : who arc real juniors, not against a ; team who have four players who have | played against professionals. Take a ! tip, Mr. Clement S. Ferguson, of Mac-i leod. and play real juniors, and don't j let Lethbridge put one over on you 1 like they did on us. _ i If the Lethbridge Herald wants any I proof of the above story, let them j get in touch with Medicine Hat. surely 'they can't disclaim a statement which was read all over Alberta printed in black and white; and as we said before, the Monarchs will play them any | time with their real team, and will i also let Prendergast, the imported I pitcher go into the box. What do they want more than that?" Ottawa. Oct. 6.-Fuel Controller Ma-grnth announces that regulations have now been approved by the governor-general in order to control the wholesale and retail sale of gasoline in Canada, The regulations provide for the licensing of all persons who deal in gasoline iu Cauada and certain fees are prescribed, based upon the volume of gasoline sold during the previous year. One important provision of the regulation is that for the duration of the war the sale of gasoline on Sundays is absolutely prohibited. Retail maximuinu prices are prescribed for establishments selling gasoline in quantities over 1000 gallons a month. Profits are based on a 10 per cent, advance over the whole-sale cost delivered.

What Vienna Thinks ~"~ Amsterdam, Oct. 6. - Dispatches from Vienna show the Austrian newspapers to be deeply impressed with the importance of the peace move made by the central powers and filled with hope for its success. The Fremdenblatt has some doubts, saying: "We must reckon with everything and must be armed for all events." "Never before was it necessary to look forward to coming events with such determination." says the Neue Freie Presse. "It is not miliary necessity which forces the monarchy to make such confessions." The Abendblatt hopes, "that President Wilson, whose declarations certainly were seriously meant, will not hesitate to seize the hand that is stretched forth and show the world he intends to realize the ideals he has laid before it in. his speeches." A Canadian View Winnipeg, Oct. 7. - During the course of last evening's service at Westminster church, Rev. Dr. Christie said: i "The blood of our boys speaks to us and tells us we do not malte peace I with murderers. We solemnly ar-j raign and punish them. This is not the business of statesmen alone. It j has been a people's war. It is the peo-S pie who have died and it is the peop'.a i who will see that justice is done. The three great criminal nations, must surrender unconditionally." It was then moved by J. T. Hale, ex-M.L.A.. -seconded by Hon. Dr. Thornton, minister of education, -and carried by a standing vow of the congregation, that ' we endorse and approve the statement just made by Rev. Dr. Christie." This statement was wired by th" congregation to Premier Sir Robert Borden.

With the American Army in France, Oct.. 6.-American troops operating in the Champagne with _ the French again advanced their lines today, capturing St, Etienne. The American progress served also as a leverage on the right of the Champagne offensive resulting in advances further west, the result being the withdrawal of the German lines along a 25-mile stretch. British Take Prisoners. London, Oct. 7.-In the local fighting Sunday around Aubencheul-aux-Bois, the British captured 400 prisoners. The official statement reads: "In local fighting in the neighbor-hood of Aubencheul-aux-Bois we captured about 400 prisoners. "Yesterday afternoon one of our patrols in the Oppy sector brought in 34 prisoner* and four machine guns. During the night, we established posts at the canal crossings north of Auben-cheul-attx-Bac and also northeast and east of Oppy. "A German post east of Bericlau was captured by another of our patrols. We made slight progress north of "Wese Maorquart." Paris Official Paris, Oct. 7.-Announcement of successes on tlfe Suippe River and near SU Quentin was contained in the official statement issued at the war office last night. The text reads: "North of St. Quentin, the battle continued throughout the day. Between *Morcourt and Sequehart. our troops have taken Remaucourt, Tilloy farm and many fortified woods and places where the enemy resisted with furious energy. They failed to check the advance of our "troops who conquered positions foot by foot and took many hundreds of prisoners. "North of Rueiins we have reached the Suippe at a number of points. German rearguards along the river to the south made vigorous resistance ami* launched many counter-attacks, hut our troops repulsed them and inflicted sanguinary losses. We hold the southern outskirts of Aguilconrt and the village of Bertricourt on the north side of the Suippe. Further to tlifc right we have forced the passage of the river to the east of Oramville and have taken Pont Givart. "The combats no less violent have taken place itx the region of B*azean-cottrt and Boul-sur-Suippe. These combats have permitted us to reach the outskirts of these villages. "We have debouched from the village of Betheniville, in spite of violent machine gun and artillery fire and have taken ground north of St. Clement-a-Arnes. In this region, our troops had to meet very strong counter-attacks. Our artillery fire caught enemy battalions and inflicted hea^ losses upon them. They were forced to retreat in disorder. "Today's events have completed the delivery of Rheims, the richness and historical associations of which excited the covetousness of Germany, who, many times since the beginning of the war, have attacked the city and who have vented their impotent rage against it with incendiary bombardments, but who have never been able to take it. "Weather conditions on Oct. 4 were not very favorable for observation along the eastern sectors of the front. Our bombing squadrons dropped :!0 tons of bombs during the day on assemblages of troops, convoys and enemy batteries. During the night, in spite of the bad weather, our airplanes dropped J700 kilograms of projectiles on military objectives at Chatel-Sur-Retourne. where a fire was j observed. During the day, 81 enemy j machines were shot down or put out I of the fighting." ! Germans in Full Retreat Paris, Oct. 7.-The Germans am in retreat on the whole front from the .Suippe to the Ames, as well as in the region south of Cambrai. In the first named sector the allies have reached the Ames river on which the enemy hoped to make a stand. In the second region the British 4th army has crush-ad counter-attacks which the enemy delivered in an effort to prevent its progress toward Bohaln and cover 4helr retreat, to the south. These two movements of retreat form a part, of a plan which was to have brought the German armies to new lines of resistance more nearer to the frontier, it appears, but the constant pressure of the allied troops is making the exocutlon of the plan most difficult. anM hazardous. The peace proposals of ttie central powers are in no way interfering with the policy of destruction the Gormen staff seems to have decided on. Sal-aumines, near Lens, i3 burning and fires have be'en seen west and southwest of Lille and between Douni and Soudain. The troops advancing in the Champagne found all the villages in the valley of the Suippe iu flames. Laon has been ablaze since yesterday, Indicating that the enemy maj; be about to leave that region, as the Che-min-des-Dames, already turned by Gen. Mangin on the west, has now been turned on the east by troops who have crossed the Aisne at several points in the vicinity cf Bery-au-Bac, malctag it appear that the Laonoisse region is no longer tenable. Increased Artillery Activity Washington. Oct. 7.-Slight advances yesterday by the American forces between the Meuse and the Bois-des-Agons In heavy Infantry fighting was reported Gen. Pershing. He also reported increased artillery activity everywhere on both sides. I)ICKED UP IN ASS1NG C=l TOR THE BUST UAN Mrs. J. Maggs died at Coleman. Coleman is to have a curltns rink* John C.
