Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 12, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX THE LETHBRroGE DAlEt YIERAIJ) SATURDAY. OCTOBER 12. m\ "BRINGING UP FATHER" By G. McManus WHENIEHAN BEATOEMPSEY (By Ringside) Chicago.-^Weep for Jack Dempsey -he is done. Tlie hopes we pinned upon him are no more. To deepest night has sunk his sun. ho. they count 10-he lies upon the floor. For, be it known, out there on the Golden Gate, where the original sons look out upon the day, recently was there a: decision rendered In tavor of Wee Willie Meehan, local boy wonder, sailor to Uncle Sam by vocation, �nd would-be pugilist by avocation. It was a four-round charity affair �with no decision expected, but when you get a combination such as this boy Meehan, what elsfe can you expect? We forget ^his weight stripped, but we know he woul^ come In handy to stand between Kaiser Bill and the latter'a losses, for Bill could never see 'those sad matters around Wee WUHe's-waist. ^ PerhajiB that -was the trouble with the ref^ee-hia Vislbn may not have been oC. the X-ray variety, and having been stationed, by inclination, and geometi7,both, on the Meehan side of ring^ he may have failed to see Jack B^mpsey at all. .

But, like the bark of the dog that wags his tail simultaneously, so the swing of Wee Willie's arms holds no terror for the antagonist who knows him. For, like the dog, there is no bite in it. It strikes with the hardness of a summer breeze and is as death-dealing as the pat of a still-blind kitten. Meehan Downed by Dempsey Report has it-^accurate report, too -that Dempsey landed one of those smashing blows of his on the right spot on Meehan, and that Meehan said, good morning to the floor, but because he did not stay long enough to say good night the aforesaid referee passed that up as unworthy of o�R-clal attention-although with ail his wind-sawJDg Willie never drove Dempsey near enough to the floor to let him gef within telephonic communication with it. There is another theory on which, nf^rhaps,".looking at the matter with '.3 wide impartiality which the times and the censor ^p^rmit, we may SERVICE STATION HENRY IDENN Proprietor All Makea^f Batteries Charaed and Repaired 811 7th Street 8.

Wee Willie, as aforesaid, wears a uniform, and it's the right color, and stands tor the right things. Referee Patriotic Now. np and down the ocean convoying ships carrying boys who also wear the uniform, and the right color, are other sailor boys like in nnlforni unto the mighty Willie, now beater-by-decision of Jack Dempsey, aspirant-heretofore to championship honors. It is not possible that the referee, being of a patriotic turn of decisioning, decided to sacri-flce his reputation in his chosen avocation and give the score to Willie to, support the .morale of our sailor boys? Greater deeds of self-sacrifice have been recorded. But, meanwhile, let us shed a tear for Jack-how can he come back after such a blow? (A blow by the way, which he never felt in the ring, for the many punches that swung in his direction during those four rounds were punches and he felt them-not.), There is .'the fable of the fly on the coftchwheel and all the dust, but in spite of the fly the wheel kept on making just as, much unsanitary dirt-fllnglng as before. Boxing for Charity And so It will be with Dempsey if Jess Willard will (ake him on. For we are able to get to the other side of the ring, and looking at it from Dempsey's comer it Is easy to understand his side of the story. He had the gloves on for charity to help where he could help most. There were four rounds In store for the audience and nothing at stake for him. Why not give them a show for their money? They'd come again If he did, and that would mean more money-for charity. So, without putting any frills on it he let Wee Willie feel his gloves once or twice and finally sent him to the floor-that for the sake of playing square with the audience. As for Willie, he didn't have anything against him-'he, Willie, is a good boy, and then, too, he's a sailor of the U. S. A. or V. B. N., according to whether you mean America or navy. And then, too. Jack is a generous chap,: perhaps,^ apd If it pleases the Golden Oat� ��it^ add to its glories the alleged'.altln.-spurious Is-of Jack;, Pempsey well, why not? If Calllomla can stand it, we are prone to believe Jack can. USED CAR DEPARTMENT Elgin 3-Passenger Roadster, IM?. MhcheU Touring, 19,17. Ford Koaibter, m4. Foril Touring, Special Equipm^t, 1317.

THE KOUSE OF SERVICE" Thanksgiving Day Red Cross competition will ring down the curtain,-so far as competitions are concerned this season. The idea of pushing the sale of score cards is a good one, and' I hope Dr. Craig has been successful in, disposing of a large number, suificient to ensure a good donation to the ITed Cross funds. Golf Clubs all over the Dominion have arranged similar  competitions and I am confident the members''of the Lethbridge Golf Club -will not fall down, but will respond heartily and take a card whether they play in the competition or not. No one should grudge the fifty cents asked. They could not give to a more worthy cause. I am pleased to know that we are to have another visit from the Mac-leod-Pincher golfers for a returfl match on Monday, which will not in any way interfere with the competition and wiii be a fitting finish to the 1918 season. There is nothing better than an inter-club match for keeping up the' interest in the game, and I hope to see more of them nest season. I have always been a strong, supporter; of inter-club play. Yoii get the best out of a player when he is in his mettle against a worthy opponent. Mdny golfers I have known would much rather play in a club match for the honor of beating an opponent than play in a competition for a prize. It is something to be prou.l of when you are partnered against a good player and find that you have not only been able to hold your own, but bj playing perhaps one or two particularly fine shots, a few^ of your best-it may have been a well judged mashle pitch or by holing a long putt-the game has turned in your favor and you win by the add hole. I have, often heard the expression by different players, that they, carried a certain number of shots in their bag, and there may have been something in v^at they said. I once had the pleasure of playing with a friend against a professional on his own course. He played our best ball. My friend and I were strangers to the, the play was close and interesting. I was much amused by the proteasional saying when we halved a hole or won a hole, that he had a few more shots in his bag. No doubt he had, but he appeaired to me to keep them there, as the match ended in a halved game. My advice to any one paying in a match is to play your own game. If you have any shots in your bag that you can play and defeat your opponent with"; don't hesitate in bringing them out, but it is not necessary to say anything about them. Don't try to do what your opponent is doing. He also may have -something in his (iag and play a good shot that pays b)m well, although you can't do the same.' It Is up to you then to go one better if you can, you may be able to get equally as good results with one quit6 different. Some players I have met would play certain shots, e;^cepti.pnaily well, and, with a favorite club; hardly ever make a bad strgke, yet were not able to vary their play sufficiently to be successful match players, If things were going all right with them they were capable of putting up a great game, but unfortunately in golf, some darys you find the fates are against you, and you have to put up a flght to win. (It is then, In,,my. opinion, that you see the real golfer, the player that gets his back up and pushes his opponent to a hard finish., A^' match Is never lost till It Is won, and so long aS,. there isa chance hang to it, your luck inay turn, and fn^iie end you may.rbe: th^.wlnniBfJr,: ' � iCmight tell you-what I fpundvivery, iUaefttl in some of the matnhoB'I have jtiikeh part In wii?il �! was having a l^08c^figl>Mi'^th^ai>' > * > INTERLEAGUE.

COALHURSI RAISED OVERFIVETHOUSANO Splendid Achievement of tlie Red Cross in the Flourishing Mining Town. (Special to the Herald) Coalhurst, Oct. 10.-The annual meeting of the Coalhurst branch of,the Red Cross Society was hold in the Presbyterian church on Monday the 7fh Mr. Sandham occupied the chair atii there was n large aitemliince ot the members and ros'denrs of the village. The financial report was read by D. X,. Currie, the secretary-treasurer. The total Income of the branch for the year ending Sept. 30 was $5,288.51, of �which $3,509.30 was membership fees and subscriptions, and $1,729.06 was raised by special effort. The .total disbursements reached the amount of $5,275.91. Purchases of material accounted for $1,738.90, and a special feature was the $3,000 paid toward the purchase of an automobile ambulance which is now helping to take care ot some of the wounded in the war zone. Great credit Is due to the ladies who carried on the work of making the supplies which were forwarded to headquarters for shipment overseas during the present term. The total number ot pieces thus disposed of was 5,179, and good use will be made of them at their destination.. The election of officers for the en-suipg term resulted in the'appointment of J. R. Barkhouse, chairman; J. R. Sandham, and D. MacNeil, vice-chairmen; D. A. Currie, secretary-treasurer, and a committee composed of the following ladies and gentlemen: Mesdames Keith, MacNeil, Sandhami Searle, Qiiigley, Forbes, Smith, Aber-nethey. Snow, McMuUen, and Messrs. Dean^ Kehough, Bissette, Morrisey, Dwyer, Sherrett and Quigley. After the business of the meeting was concluded a very interesting lecture by Mr. Buchanan, M.P., was earnestly listened to by an appreciative audience. His description of the journey from this continent to Europe and through Prance and Great Britain gave us a very vivid picture of the immensity of the task which the allies have had to undertake, and the able manner in which they have organized their resources for the successful carrying on of the war.

It has boon suggested "by some that by reason of our victories bringing pence nppreclnbly nearer not so much nionty may be required for the purposes ot war. That is a mistaken view. The war may last a considerable time yet before final victory is achieved. In addition to this, tlio allies, including Canada, will necessarily be on a war basis so far as expenditure is concerned for a considerable period after the cioae ot Uio war. It will take many months to effect do-.-mobilization. All the money that wo are asking will, therefore, be required both tor war expenditure for the ea-tablishmeut ot credits for purchasing armaments, etc. No matterj what the course of events in the war there is the utmost national necessity tor making the Victory loan an overwhelming success. jyt the Municipalities convention a suggestion by Mayor Brown ot Medicine Hat. was adopted to call a conference of the cities of Alberta and Saskatchewan to discuss common interests in the matter ot public utilities, etc. GoodGiotliessavfi pr ones waste IN BUYING ilothes or anything else this year, it's a good thing to know exactly what you're getting; the fact that the average buyer doesn't know good quaHty from poor stuff that looks good, is often a source of great profit to some merchants.
