Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 11, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1918 IN POSI SERIES World's Championship Clashes Are Staged 15 Times With Younger League Winner 10 Years. When "taps" sounded for professional baseball, as it has been conducted trader the organization that practically ended its career with the finish of the world's series, the American league retained the supremacy "which it established early in its existence and maintained for the greater part of 16 years. The victory of the Red Sox in their tussle with the Cubs gave the younger league priority in world's series honors by a wide margin. Of the fifteen contests that hare been staged for the world's pennant, since the peace pact of 1902-1903 stabilized previous chaos, la the two circuits which closed their gates on Labor day, the American league has won ten and lost Ave. That Is a winning average of .667, or two out of every three contests. Younger League Show* Class Those wKo assert that luck' is the Jetermining factor in short series have an argument all the time, but over a long period luck is bound -to break even. Moreover/ the younger league has won the honors not only in the world's series but in all the other post-season combats in, which AUTO TIRES OF ALL SIZES VULCANIZED By the Famous Haywood System RE-TREADING & REPAIRING By Experienced Workmen.

DENN Proprietor All Makes of Batteries Charged and Repaired 811 7th Street 8. Phone 616 two teams from rival circuits have been engaged. During the sixteen seasons of the ; peaceful existence the American and National leagues have failed to play a J world's series in only one year. That j was in 1904, when the New York J Giants declined to play the Boston Red Sox for. the final honors. But in that fall other rival teams in the two leagues met in post-season strife, so there has been a test of supremacy for 16 years, and this and 190S are j the only years in which the world's i series was the only interleagu'e clash. There have been 294 post-season j games between the two circuits, in-j eluding city series and state championships as well as the bigger events. Of that number the American league teams have won 16S games and the National leaguers 126. That gives the younger organization a winning i percentage of .571, which looks de-1 cisive when it covers a periof o� I years long enough to neutralize the I element of luck. More games than that have been played by rival American and National league outfits, as spring combats have taken place in several cities almost every year since they established diplomatic relations. But these have not been included in the inter-league records because they offered no real test of the strength of the rival teams. Too many rookies were tried out in the spring games, and too little effort was made by the veterans, for fear of injury, to make the preseason games anything more than coin-collecting affairs. List of World Pennants The American league won the world's championship in 1903, 1906, 1910, 1911, 1912, 1913, 1915, 1916, 1917, 1918. The National league copped the big bunting in 1905, 1907, 1908, 1909 and 1914. There was no decision in 1904. In the total number of post-season games played each fall the American league has won the lion's share nine years and the National league five years, two autumnal records being a draw. In the main the league which took the world's series also won the majority of the fall games, but this has not always been true. In 1905 the Giants beat the Athletics easily for the big flag, but the two leagues broke even at 12 games each on the post-season work of that fall. How Dope Went Wrong Last year the White Sox beat the Giants for the world's flag, but. the National league teams cleaned up in the other post-season contests, so that the veteran circuit earned the laurels in the totals for 1917. That fact was one of the elements in "the dope which made the Cubs favorites over the Red Sox in the last world's contest, as it looked last year as if the National league had increased its class at least to a level with the American league. CANADIENS PAYING BIG MONEY FRANCE HAS GREAT BANTAM Eugene Criqui Has Won All His Fights With Knockout __f Just as soon as this war is over Prance will present another candidate for world honors in boxing in the person of Eugene Criqui, bantamweight. It will be remembered that Georges Carpentler started hi3 ring career as a bantam, and Criqui's prowess already exceeds that of Car-pentier, the llo-pSunder. Criqui has knocked out every boxer who has been sent against him in the international shows over there. Not so long ago the Yankee contingent sent Eugene Clifford, a doughboy, against Criqui, and the Frenchman landed his haymaker in the second session. The next American entry was Jimmy O'Day, a good featherweight from Pittsburg, who is in the field artillery. One round sufficed for the Smoky City lad, and his second threw in the sponge. Criqui is said to have a wonderful left. Store Broken Into and Auto Stolen-Some Big Yields of Grain. TO BUILD 80-MILE SPEED BOAT Cleveland Plans to Surprise Yachting World Next Spring Cleveland, Ohio.-Yatchsmen. of the country will be watching Cleveland next spring for what is promised as the greatest surprise the speed merchants have ever had furnished them.. Local motorboat enthusiasts are going to build a powerboat this-winter that will develop a speed of 80 miles an hour or so, according to the word of J. H. Walker, manufacturer of parts for Liberty motors. The new craft, to be called Miss Cleveland, will be launched and tuned up in plenty of time for the national and international races of 1919, it is promised. She will get her power from two Liberty motors, according to Walker's plans. "If she doesn't make at least 75 miles an hour she won't be worth anything to me and she might as well be scrapped," Walker said. "We expect MisS Cleveland will travel at an 80-mile clip when she's sent against those other marvels Miss Minneapolis, Miss Detroit IIL and Whip-Po-Will Jr." . ANDY. THE RADIATOR MAN WILL REPAIR YOUR RADIATOR-AND GUARANTEE THE WORK. Rear Dallas Hotel (Upstairs) Toronto, Oct 9.-Now that "Newsy" Lalonde has confirmed the report that he was offered $1,800 for the season with the Canadien Hockey association, it would tend to show that the men behind the proposition are preparing to go through with it, and are making these offers in good faith. Lalonde has returned a favorable answer. ' On top of this it is learned that late last night an offer was made to Clint Benedict, the star goalkeeper of the Ottawa team,1 offering him ?1,500 for the season, and also wires were sent to Cyril Denneny and Eddie Gerard of the Ottawas, asking for their terms, while a similar message will be forwarded to Frank Nighbor, who is with the Royal Air Force here and is a member of the Ottawa team. r USED CAR DEPARTMENT Elgin 3-Passenger Roadster, 1917.

"THE HOU8E OF SERVICE" Calgary, Oct. 10.-Although the provincial police have by no means given up the Bow river murder case as hopeless and have their men working on it night and day, they seem to have reached an Impasse in the failure of Ernest Krantz, of Carmangay, to substantiate the identification by Pte. Rowat, and Mr. Neilson, of 535 Seventeenth avenue west, of the dead man as William Green, formerly of Carmangay. The statement made by Krantz corroborates the evidence of Dr. Bryans, of Lethbridge, relative to a very marked scar borne by William Green. This scar, according to Dr. Bryans and Krantz, is on the left hand Tunning up the wrist, and is very noticeable, even at a distance of a few yards; it is from a severe cut sustained by Green in an altercation, during which he was thrown through a window. The scar on the unknown's, left hand is not a very marked one and' extends only between two knuckles. (From Our Own CorroaDondent) Nobleford, Oct. 11.-The Ladies' Aid of the United church here have arranged for a Thanksgiving supper and entertainment to be held in the cluirch next Monday evening. The supper which will be a chicken one is, according to what can be learned, going to be one that will attract all to it. The food regulations are, however, to be sti'ictly enforced. The entertainment will also be of a high order, and it is hoped that all who can get into the village will be in attendance. The proceeds are for the Ladies' Aid funds. Water has been struck at the new well that Mr. Tackaberry has been drilling in the centre of the village. The flow is very good and the village council has decided to erect the windmill that they have so that the inhabitants living in the esat end of the place will have a good water supply. In the course of time it is hoped that a cistern will be built that will hold a good supply of water so that it can be used in case of fire. Some Good Crops The people of this district were very pleased to see in the Herald the other evening the report that Mr. Meech of Lethbridge had secured 51^2 bushels.,.of w;heat. per acre from a two-acre patch of irrigated land. While we have had no such large yields as this here, still considering the dry year and the fact that all our lands are dry farmed, we think that the following figures will compare very favorably with bur friends at Lethbridge: C. C. Hetzel.two miles south of the village, has 80 acres of wheat that went 23 bushols to the acre. McClaln and Tucker, who live west of the village, report the following yields: 30 acres,|40 bushels per acre. The Noble Foundation, Ltd., of which Mr. Noble is the head, after seeing the paragraph already referred to, thought that in t^'p field at the Mountain View Farm Vhich was seen by the Lethbridge Board of Trade on their recent visit to this district they had a good yield, and so gave Instructions for it to be carefully measured up, hut it was found t;hat there were only four acres left which had not been threshed. This was carefully weighed and it went 49,^4 bushels for the four acres. The wMole field which was 200 acres in extent went 30 bus. to the acre. They have other fields of which the yields were as below, 400 acres of wheat 24 bushels to the acre, three fields of oats of 100 acres 160 acres and 200 acres went 48% bushels, 51 bushels and 50 bushels respectively. Considering that this year has been very dry and at one time it was expected that there would be no crop worth harvesting the above figures are an eye-opener for anyone who does not know'the possibilities of Southern Alberta. We have no doubt that results like these will be found to be common in districts where good farming methods are followed. First Death in Village The village is' today,- mourning its fim death since the starting of the community. On Monday afternoon everyone was shocked to hear the news >that Mrs. Connet, wife of R. E. Connet, who had lived here for about 18 months, had very suddenly passed away. On Sunday with the exception of having a slight cold she was in her usual health, but early on Monday afternoon she had a heart attack whictt ended fatally. Dr. Willans of MACLEOD NOTES (From Our Own Correspondent) Macleod, Oct. 10.-The Red Cross shipment of articles for the war for the month of September was a large one considering the end of summer, and many being away, the number being around 1200. Preparations are now being made for the Xmas. parcels, which will be'one to every soldier, � who has gone overseas from Macleod, and district. The half day off, and closed stores which has been in effect for the past five months, waB not observed this week, and may not until the long days of spring come around again. TO CELEBRATE THE VICTORY OF CANADIANS A movement is on foot to observe the recent glorious victories of the Canadians at Cambral by a Thanksgiving celebration in Wesley church on Monday evening, A definite announcement will be made tomorr�B> ting out gopher poison contrary to law. ^After hearing the charge Mr. Cawdron pleaded guilty but stated that he did not know that he had infringed the law with what he was doing. After considering the case the justices decided that as the point of law had never as far as they knew been taken into court in this district before and inasmuch as nearly all farmers would he guilty they thought that the case woujd be met on payment of costs. For the benefit of the farmers of the district the section of the act is as follows: "No person shall set out poison in any other part of the province than that referred to in Section 2, (That portion of the province lying north of the 55th degree north latitude), except upon his own premises and only for the purpose of destroying gophers, nor shall poison be set out unless it be mixed with grease Wnd placed in a hole or hollow in a piece of timber or other material or is placed in a vessel." This is interpreted" that no one can put out poison within reach of or. on section lines joining their land except in vessels. The Rev. E. S. Bishop was a visitor here on Tuesday in the interests of the Child Welfare league. In the afternoon he spoke to the ladies only and gave them some very interesting advice regarding the work that was being done along the lines of child welfare. In the evening a public meeting was held to which he delivered an address along similar lines. There is no doubt that his visit here will stimulate interest in the child. Monday night was a series of robberies. Just about 9.30 the local Postmaster, F. W. Hunt, went down to the office for some mail and as he was opening the door he thought that he heard someone move inside. On going into the office he found that one of the windows at the rear had been broken and an entrance to the building obtained in that way. Unfortunately the burglar was able to make a clean getaway without leaving any trace behind. So far as can be seen nothing had been stolen, though if he had not been disturbed there is no knowing what might have happened. Following this the discovery was made at about 12.30 that a car belonging to Carmangay and which had been used,.to bring some friends down to the home of Mr. Kilpatrick wus missing. The car had been left just outside the bank building and whether the same party who had broken into the postoffice had also taken the car is not known, tout the fact remains that the car is missing and up to the time of writing this note no trace of It has been found. The police have both matters in hand and no doubt we shall be hearing something shortly. THE CANADIANS ARE WONDERFUL F PAY 3C BUSHEL Winnipeg, Oct. 10.-An order issued by the board of grain supervisors today provides that upon all Canadian wheat exported between December 1, 1918, and August 31, 1919, there shall be paid by exporter 3c a bushel to the board. This also applies to wheat ground by, or purchased, or for flour mills in Canada, between Sept. 1, 1918, and Aug. 31, 1919, the sum to be collected by Lake Shippers' Ctear-ance Association. This money is to be used as a fund to pay carrying charges on street wheat at country points and Buch carrying charges for mills as may be determined in addition to such administrative expenses as considered proper by the board. An embargo of the board covering shipments of wheat from northern districts is lifted but this does not affect Southern Alberta where shipment, except to mills within the district, is prohibited. With the Canadian Forces. Oct. 5 -(Delayed)-(By J. F. B. Livesay, Canadian Press Correspondent)- Gen. Sir Henry Horn, commanding the. British 1st army, wired as follows to Lteut.-Gen. Sir Arthur Currie, commanding the Canadian corps, Oct. 3: "I wish to express to you and the troops my appreciation of the determined fighting of the Canadian corps during the past five days. During this time, the Canadian corps, assisted by the 11th division and portions of the 56th division, successfully carried through the different task of forcing the Canal du Nord in face of a determined enemy and captured Bourlon wood and the high ground north and northwest of Cambrai. The importance which 'the enemy attached to these positions is shown by the number of divisions which he has employed and by the violence of his counterattacks during the last two days. Troops of no less than 12 divisions have been engaged during this period in an attempt to stem the successful advance of the troops." Gen. Currie addressed the following order to the troops: "I wish,to express to all troops now fighting in the Canadian corps my high appreciation of the splendid Qualities displayed by them in Uie successful battles of the first w'eek"-lt October. The mission assigned to the corps was protection of the flank of the 3rd and 4th armies in their advance and that mission has been carried out to the complete satisfaction of the commander-in-chief. In your advance you overcame the very formidable obstacle of the Canal du Nord. You carried by assault the fortified Bourlon wood, the Marcoing line and seized the high ground extending along the Douai-Cambrai road. The towns of Oshy, Leverger, Epinoy, Haynecourt,. Marquin, Sains-les-Mar-quln, Saincourt, Bourlon, Fontaine-de-Notre Dame, Sallly, St. Olle, Neuville, St. Remy and Tllloy are now ours and your patrols' entered Cambral itself "How arduous was the task assigned to you and how valuable to the1 enemy waB the ground you captured can be judged by the fact that whereas in the operations of the ist, 3rd and 4th British armies, 36 enemy divisions have engaged, to this date, 12 of these divisions, supported by 11 independent machine gun units, have been met and defeated by the Canadian corps. As you formed the flank, you suffered enfilade and frontal artillery fire all the way and hundreds of machine guns captured testify to the violence of the opposition from that source. Every evidence confirms the fact that the enemy suffered enormous casualties. He fought stubbornly and well and for that reason your victory Is the more creditable. X You have taken in this battle over 7,000 prisoners and over 200 field and heavy guns. Thus bringing the total captures of the Canadian corps since Aug. 8 to 28,000 prisoners, GOO guns, over 3,000 machine guns and a large amount of stores of all kinds. "Even of greater Importance than these captures stands tho fact that you hayo. wrested 97 towns and vll-lages and over 175 square miles of' soil from the Hun In tho short period of ;two months. ' 1 A Great Record "The Canadian corps, to which was* attached tho 32nd division for the battle, of Amiens, the 4th and 61st divisions: for the battle of Arras and tho 11th division for the battle of Cambral, has encountored and defeated decisively 40 German divisions-that la nearly one quartor of the total German forces on tho west front. "In the performance of these mighty achievements, all arms and bran-chcB of the c.orpB have bout their put � posofu'l energies one for all and all for one. The dash and mngniflcont bravory of our incomparable infantry have at all times been devotedly seconded with great skill and daring by our machine gunners, while the artillery lent their powerful and never-failing support. The Initiative and resourcefulness displayed by the engineers contributed materially to tha depth and rapidity of our advances, The devotion of the medical personnel has been worthy of every praise. The administrative services, working at all times under very great pressure and adverso conditions, surpassed their efficiency. The chaplain services by their continual devotion to tho spiritual welfare of the troops and their utter disregard of personal risk have endeared themselvos to the hearts of everyone. The incessant ef> forts of the Y.M.C.A. and their Initiative in bringing comforts right up to tho front line In battles are warmly appreciated by all. "The victories you have achieved are the fruit of the iron discipline you accepted freely and of tho high standard you have reached In technical knowledge of your arms and the combined tactical employment of all ybur resources. You must, therefore, with relentless energy, maintain and perfect tho high standard of training you have reached und guard with jealous pride your stern discipline. Under the lasting protection of Divine Providence, united in a burning desire for the victory of right ovor might, unselfish in your aiming, you are and shall remain a mighty force, admired by all, feared and respected by your foes, I am proud of your deeds and I want to record here my heartfelt thanks for your generous efforts and my unbounded confidence in your ability to fight victoriously and crush the enemy whenover you meet him."
