Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 18, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX THE LErn^BRIDGE DAILY HERALD FRIDAY, OCTOBER 18, 1918 >*BRINGING UP FATHER" By G. McManus near tHC mOHT OOOR so 1 can'T HE ha^ fallen At)LEePA t�OV/"S> ME chance; The Sport CALGARY CLAiS MY HA SERIES W ESIO A Scored More Runs, They Say- Lack of Funds Made Them Refuse Fifth Game. Belton ot the Calgary Monarchs has a poor ansvrer to the charge made by'the Medicine Hat juniors that the Calgary crew are a bunch o� quitters. He says: They're at it again, poor old Medicine Hat, will they ever get through crabbing? Under a story headed that the Monarchs are the champion base-bawl pikers of 1918, the Hat News sport scribe insists that the Hatters kids out of $85 like taking cents from a blind man. When the thins was spoken up at the ball park, they blamed ye writer of the story for agreeing to accept the paltry sum of ?14.S5, and the Hat team's manafeer asked us to go around to the secretary and prove it. We had had a good meal before that and felt like something in that line and took up the challenge and led the way. But did the secretary agree on his last statements? nothing doing, he just started crabbing on how much they lost on the trip to Calgary, did not think of the weight we would lose if we didn't eat. "Hatters reluctantly take championship by default," says a headline. Reluctantly, eh? It's a bet you grabbed at that idea of some "knowair so Quick, lightning would hare had nothing on you. Remember, Medicine Hat, CORRIE FOOLED GERMAN LEADERS League Mag:nates Must Decide Whether Usual Rules Will Obtain on Contracts. we lead by two runs on the total score. Who has the better team? Tou beat us 5-2 and 6-5, we beat you 2-1 and then knocked you to a frizzle by 9-4. We'll admit right here that when you beat us you beat us right, but we notice you blame your losses on darkness and the sun and that kind of Xew York. Oct. IS.-Major league baseball magnates face a knotty problem at the coming annual meetings when they will be called upon to decide the status of the player at present under contract or re.serve. Very few ot the club owners hold the opin- have a better team than the locals s stuff. even though we le^d on the total number of runs in the four games.. TheJ sport scribe of onf eastern city paper, adds, that the Monarchs were afraid to'because Chief.Miers was going to pitclL' dh,'boy,'woulfl&'t that get'.a guy's nanny? just think after the Monarcis hare allowed- the ''Chief" to pitch 31 innings against them that they would be afraid to let We were there-, and we know.

Still we have nothing against Miers, he's, a sport. The story speaks of the "high cost o' living," but doesn't eay that they expected 11 ball players to stay in the hotel two nights and eat six meals on a total of ?14.8o.  What a .bunch of sports that Hat bunch are, bareball profiteers we would term them, beating a bunch of What is going to be done regarding the play-off? Nobody knows. The Monarchs were let down on their expected arrangements, and the Hatters could hardly expect them to stay another day for J14.85, It Is interesting to know that Medicine Hat now wants to rib up a series with the local boys to decide the championship.'

BAALIM MOTOR Co. BACK OF UNION BANK THE RED CROSS NEED YOUR OLD TIRES AND TUBE8, THROW THEM IN OUR RED CROSS BOX ion, apparently, that it will be possi ble to resume league operations next spring. If such proves to be the case, and there are few indications to the contrary, it would appear that the majority of players, who figured in the' 191S pennant races will not receive contracts during the eariy months of next year. According to the present system it is mandatory upon the clubs t* renew their options or reserve clause.? upon players not later than January 1 each year and to follow this action by ipailing contracts to the players not later than February 1. It is extremely doubtful if this procedure will be followed in 1019. Under the ordinary ruling a player who did not receive his contract by March 1 would become a free agent, and upon the resumption of big league baseball would be in a position to sell his services to the highest bidder. It is understood, however, that the magnates will hold that the business of baseball was suspended to operate under instructions from the government and that since the right to operate was beyond their control all contracts' and other legal phases are suspended automatically. Under this construction the contract of the player carries over until such time as the government gives consent for a renewal of the business of baseball. Thus if the professional leagues do not resume until 1920 the year of 1919 would be considered as non-existent in so far as it might affect a player's contract. There is still another angle to the proposition which involves the magnates and the two major leagues as individuals and cooperating business organizations. It might be held to bo within their rights to refijse to negotiate with or for the services of a player who, previously to the suspension of the .game, was the property of another club. If such action were generally adopted the player would be oblig'ed to report back to his original club for a renewal of his contract or a release, if he desired to reenter play in either of the big leagues. Sent Three Battalions With Bands Playing in Another Direction than Part of Front Arranged. ' Windsor, Ont., Oct. 17.-How Lleut.-General Sir .Arthur Currie, Commander of the Canadian Corps in France borrowed the tactics of Gefi-" eral Brock,^ the British commander, n-ho deceived General Hill into surrendering Detroit in 1S12 without a shot being fired, was related last night in Windsor rmories to' an audience of more than 4.000 persons by Bishop M. F. Fallon, of London, recently returned from France. Brock, in order to give the American general the idea that the British were at Sandwich in great force, I raarclied his three thousand British I troops and his Indian allies in and out of his headquarters at Sandwich a score or more of times. General Currie, the bishop said, adopted the same method in making a surprise I attack on the Germrin flank at i Amiens, wisich resulted in the Cana-! dian Army Corps breaking down the enemy defence an'd forcing the great retreat that is now culminating victory for the allied armies. To give Gorman spies the impression that the Canadians were moving nosth. instead of south to Amiens, General Currie organized some three battalions, witich were sent north with bands playing and colors flying. These troops were marched about in a circle for several days and the German flyers did the rest by reporting back , to their commanders that Canadians iu force were going north to attack In the vicinity of Ypres. While this false tactical move was going on by day, eighty thousanr Canadians were moved by night in motor trucks perfectly camouflaged with branches ot trees. That the enemy was duped and surprised by the century-old tactics is no%v known to General Currie, the ruse proving completely successful and leading the enemy into sending his reserves to the northern sector of the front, directly away from the point where the attack was to be made. TABEK BARON BURIAN LOOKS FOR PEACE made himself very popular with the American people had he shown a more liberal disposition regarding war benefits and such but the tirade of abuse heaped upon him by Manager Kearns will get nothing for Jlr. Dempsey and letters from the boys at the front state very plainly that they would like Jo see the submarine "over there" and not in the states, away from the real battle. Basel, Oct. 17.-Baron Burian, the Austro-Hungarian foreign minister, spoke in the most optimistic manner of the prospects for an early peace in addressing the foreign atta.lrs committee of the Austrian delegation on Wednesday, says a Vienna dispatch. "I nourish the hopes today most fully," said the foreign minister in this connection, "for if the contents ot President Wilson's reply are stud-led there la nothing to be found to frustrate such a hope or even to delay its realization." "The political point in President Wilson's reply is settled," Baron Burian declared, "&s Germany's reply will undoubtedly establlsU by the modiflca-Uons which are being made in the constitution." (From the Times) The farewell dance given to Mr. and Mrs. F. H. Fowler in the Rolling Green Hall on Saturday evening last was one of the biggest ever hild In the district. Mr. 'and Mrs. Fowler are old and popular residents ot the Rolling Green district and their removal to British Columbia is regretted by a host ot friends and neighbors. E. S. Bowden left on Tuesday afternoon for Vegrevllle a^d other northern points, where he will look attar the shipping ot about 400 tons yt hay to Taber. Johii A. Seager, the first settler in the C. "V. when it was thrown open Cor settlement, has decided to ren.ove to Bellingham, Wash. A quiet wedding took place on Wednesday last at S. Theodore's church, when the bonds ot holy matrimony were solemnized between Joseph Henry Ravenscrott, ot Vancouver, and Eugene Blanche Williams, of Taber. Mr. Gilbert Williams was best man, .Miss Annie Williams acted as bridesmaid, and the bride was giv^n away by Mr. John Williams. The rector. Rev. F. Taylor, officiated at the ceremony. The married pair left on the afternoon train for their new home in West Vancouver via Banff. The auction sale of the ,T. W. .Johnson Estate was the largest ever held in the Taber district, realizing the splendid total of ?lfl,600. The-bidding was keen and spirited, Mr. Footo, a farmer ot the district, after a spirited contest, succeeded in purchasing 25 fine yearlings at $47 each. Nelson Blu^ got 18 calves at $27 a head. Walt Rutherford was lucky in getting the fine Butterfly Shorthorn bull for $150.

KEARNS HANDED A WALLOP Jack Dempsey Has Chance to Real Fighters, but Does Not Enlist Join USED CAR DEPARTMENT MitcheU Touring, 1917. Ford Roadster, 1914. Ford Touring, Special Equipment, 1917. Ford Tounng, 1917. Maxwell Roadster, 1917. BIJOU MOTOR PARLORS, LTD. "THE HOUSE OF SERVICE" If Jack Kearns, manager of Jack Demp.'-oi, e.xpected to force Jcs.? Wil-lard, champion ot the world, into a match with his protege by the tirade against the chamrdon in a letter sent broadcast the past week or so, he has another guess coming, says Tom Andrews. Willard is of tjiat nature that he might be coaxed into a match, but j never forced. Kearns goes to great lengths in his abuse of Willard regarding the latter's failure to do his duty In giving his services for war benefits, etc., and at the same time prai.s!ng the work of Denap.sey. If Dempsey were fighting over in the trenches with some of the other box-ers, like Mike O'Dowd, Bombardier Wells, Jem DrLscoll, .Steve Kotchel and many others he might be in a position to say someihing along lines; but the fact Is that Jack is of military age even if he is married, while Willard is nearer 40 than Dempsey is 25, and he has a family. He has also been doing farm work, which is considered esfiential. It is the old story of "people living in glass houses should not throw stones." Jack tells about Jess" great ^ efforts at bragging about what he i would do for the government, etc., ' but the champion has kept very , quiet; in fact, he was almost buried until he was bombarded with offers, requests for benefit nhows and chal- | lenges from Dempsey, after the latter had beaten Fred Fulton, in a punch at Newark, N, THl^m-d could have Put your wardrobe on a war basis THAT means that the clothes you do buy should be the kind that make the best possible use of th^labor and materials put into them.
