Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 31, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta EitKeO Tu. AND WORLD'S FOREMOST EVENTS Plank Can't M the Bill and Must Go FOGEL CLAIMS HE PROTECTS SPORT May Sue President Lynch of National League for Hurting His Credit Horace Fogel, president of the Phil- adelphia National League club, has re- tained Hugh Jennings, manager of the Detroit American league team, as fclg counsel in his fight with President lynch ot the National, league. Jen- uiflss is a graduate ot the Cornell Jaw school and in the off-season prac- tices law in Scraiuon, Pa. Fogel said he talked over the case ]n the Imperial hotel in -New York Manager McGraw of the Giants and Jennings. Fogel said Jennings told him he had a good case and was justified in asking" for legal redress. Horace then said he engaged Jennings as his counsel. Whether Hughie was kidding Fogel is not known. Fogel, before leaving New York for Philadelphia for the recent, league meeting, said that the New York newspapers would hear from htm bc- lore he was through. Ho also hinted he would have some ot the New York "baseball writers behind the bars for perjury. Horace also said he would have a tonsultation with his attorney In Philadelphia to consider the advis- ability of beginning a criminal suit aganst President Lynch of the Nat- lonal League. He says L-ynch's charges have injured his credit and have hurt him in many ways. Fogel Again Makes Demand. MEETING OF HOCKEY CLUBS FRIDAY NIGHT The Lcthhrldge Aquatic Association calling a meeting of .he hockey clubs of elty at T. C. Rldpath's store, Sixth street, at 8 o'clock Fri- day evening. There are four probabte entries for the city this season, the Aquatics, Y. M. C. A., High Schoo, and Hobberlins The ieague will llmlt.0 t. four dubs and if there are any or- ganiratlons d.slrlcus of Joining they shou.d be represented at th. meeting Friday evening, and It is imperative that representatives of the four clubs mentioned be on hand without fall. An early and well organic start noes a long way toward making the enterprise a success. It is -.together likely the games will be played at the lake, there b-ina no movement atoot at the present eime to have a centrally located rink In the city. At that, everyone seems to be satisfied with the pros- pccts of skr.tingand playing hockey at the lake, which is easy of access with ihe street car ccryice. Some good hockey is promised this season. Many new players have located here in the psst year and with the new four well matched teams at least are the prospect. The meetlne at Rldpath's store Friday evening is open to all and the presence of every hockey promoter In the city is request to attend. Fogel again flatly denied he had ever made any charges of there being a fixed race in the National league "I never mentioned the words 'fixed or 'crooked' in my he said "Why 1 am the greatest protecto baseball ever had. I have done mor. for baseball tiau any other man in the National league except Charlie Ebbets. "Time after time I have defended baseball as a newspaper man and have also done my best to show my readers that a fixed race in teseball is impossible. The word 'fixed' has always been repugnant to me. Why, I havo 15 affidavits from prlninent Philadelphians telling how I rebuked a well-known Philadelphia clergyman old college baseball insinuating baseball was not on the level. This incident took place the last time the Giauts were playing in Philadelphia. "The clergyman then said; 'But, Mr. iFogel, how can you account for Orth's umpiring I answered: "It is too much for me, unless Orth is trying to jet in .the world's series." "That is the only charge they have me, and at the time I did -not mean that" it should'be taken serious- However. 1 always did contend was a'.chance for evil In. the selection of'umpires for the world's eeries. For this reason I suggestei that the American league president choose the National league umpires and tho National league president choose-the American league umpires., 1 suggested this to several baseball men and all thought well of the scheme. Barry Herrmann being par- ticularly pleased wl'th it." Says He Can Not Be Expelled Fogel also said Lynch nor any one else could expel him from the Nat- ional league. He mill he bad prop- erty rights that go with American citizenship and that, any court 01 law- would protect him. He said the Nat- ional league constitution reiiuirea Bovon votes to expel a club. "They can not expel mo without ex- jrlling the Philadelphia said Fogel "for who is the Philadelphia club of .National league but Hor- ace S. And the idea that Phil- adelphia, will be erased from the Nat- ional IcaBiie map Is au'snid. .My club is not inr siile. but 1 will sell anslhrng 1 have if I can set the price 1 want." Calgary and the 'Peg Quibble Over. Expenses Calgary, Oct. dispute is on Between the Calgary Tigers and [lie Winnipeg Rowing club and the place where the first game of the Western Canada championship will be played, is in doubt. The Tigers have wired to the '.Manitoba champions demanding a thousand dollar guarantee for the trip and offering to give the same amount for the Winnipeg team to ap- pear here. Winnipeg has offered sev- en hundred dollars nnd a percentage of the gate receipts. Unless an agree- ment is reached by tomorrow it will be necessary to have the gapie post- poned.

Hank O'Day will net be at the head of the Cincinnati team next year, ac- cording to word received from that uty. Garry Herrmann is desirous of ecu-ring a. playing manager. No criticism is found with O'Day's work as pilot of the Reds. He got tho team off "to a good start and although it fell down later in the season it picked up toward the windup and In the first division. It looks now a if liillor Huggins will be the lead the Red forces in 1913, thous nothing 'definite has been done towar securing him.

Jake Magin, the'Newark rider, who is riding with George Cameron, in the six-day cycle grind in Toronto. Magin and Cameron were, both knocked senseless by tumbles the other night but they look likely to be well up at the finish Herzog to Study Charley Herzog, who has been one of the brightest stars on the New York team during the "world's series, is to enter Cornell University. Herzog be- li-c-ves an education will prove benefic- ial after his days of usefulness on tho diamond are past. A dispatch from New York says that the prevalence of the short-ills- trnce, no-decision boul, so popular nowadays, is having -one curious ef- fect on" the boxing situation. Genu- ine, undisputed champions, with a clear right to their tides are becom- ing scarce. Of these Wolgast seems to be tottering ion his throne, and Kllbano is thought .to luck real class. The. middleweight asid welter- weight titles have been on the mar- ket for some time, although there is a perfect horde of boxers voicing their right to he recognized as the lords of these -two divisions. But, as a matter of fact, most of those who seek to fill tho shoes of Stanley Ket- chel are hot midtTleweights at all. In the welterweight class even more confusion exists. With practically every boxer above the preliminary class who scales anything near the weight loudly proclaiming himself champion, if is impossible to single English Fighter Knocked Out by Lewis out one above his fellows. Never before has such a condition of chaos existed. Formerly, with de- cisions given in every bout, the wood was soon eliminated. II a er had real merit he soon climbed to the top, but under the present con j diHnns a decided change hah come over the situation. Only a small per centage ot bouts nowadays are de- cided by referees' dccisTon, and ow ing. to their shortsess knockouts are What further complicates matters is the fact that the number of in the country has vastly increased in recent years. With the elimination of the 'long-distance bouts has come no' diminution in the size of the purses Rather have they increased and the number ot athletically inclined youths who see in boxing under present con ditions a chance -to acquire the nucle- us of a fortune without much risk has increased also.
