Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 5, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta 5, inifi THE i.rnmniur.E DAILY HERALD PAGE In The World of Sport Or WELSH RETAINS TITLE-BEAT WHITE IN POOR EXHIBITION Colorado Springs, Colo., Sept. Freddie Welsh, retained his title of champion lightweight pugilist ot the world today, after going the full licheduled I'D rounds, with challenger Charley While, of Chicago. Roteruo Billy Roche, of New Vork, awarded AVelsli the decision oil points. As the gong Bounded at tho close of the 2IHh round, Kochc stood for several moments if He then reached both hands toward the boxer, and many of tho spectators believed he was about to award a draw. Suddenly Welsh rushed over to Roche, placed his glove in the nsferee's hand, and it was raised aloft, white tiie otiicial appeared to bo reaching for White. The next instant jubilant friends of the cham- pion swarmed into tlie ring.. An unfortunate accident and un- pleasant incident marred tlie begin- ning and end of the day's program. Shortly before two o'clock a portion of- the bleachers on the south side of tho arena collapsed. Moro than a hun- dred persons were more or less ser- iously injured. lloclie announced his decis- ion in favor of Welsh the challenger's adherents appeared for the moment spellbound then began a fusilade of hundreds of cushions, at the referee. Tie was rushed by friends to a wait- ing automobile, guarded by a police- man, the vehicle was speeded up an unfrequented road to tlie hotel, white hundreds of men and boys rushed after It until out-distanced. From u spectacular standpoint, the battle was considered one of the poor- oni. that has ever been fought for the highest ring honors in the weight division, for fully two-thirds of the time tho lighters were locked in a succession of clinches and pushing each other back and forward about tlie ring. For this inany spectators held Welsh was largely to blame. Scarcely a blow was struck by either man that did any damage. Willie's punches carried the greater punitive power, while frenucntly Welsh was on the aggressive and did his share of leading, it was noticeable that many of his blows fell short and failed to reach their mark. Kochc staled after the fight that be awarded Welsh tlie decision, claiming he did most of tho leading. With consummate generalship Welsh throughout practically all the tight- Ing, worked with his back to the sun. Neither man drew blood from his opponent and neither showed any particular evidence of having boon in a championship battle. Welsh fought carefully and took no chances with his opponent. Nearly persons were In the arena when the two preliminaries to the Welsh-White lightweight cham- (__ piouship battle was over. A blazing sun scorched the spectators and tlie majority of the men were in their shirt sleeves. Tiiere was a liberal sprinkling of women. o WOLGAST FIGHTS A DRAW lilnjii, Falls, Idaho. Sept. 5.

There was only one accident during the day, which occured in the bucking contest. One of the riders was riding one of the horses sent in by the Knight Ranching Co. from the outfit, when the animal went over backward and seriously injured the plucky rider ii shoulders and back. The animal was vicious and succeeded in kicking the riiler before lie could bo extricated. He was taken to the Gaboon hotel and afterward removed for more careful attention to the home Mrs. Bethridge, who is an old country nurse of long experi- ence and some local fame also. He is progressing favorably this morning. There was a fine program races and sportsron Saturday afternoon. The tug of war event was contested by teams from' Lea vitt and ten men to the side. Leavitt proved too ich for the locals and walked away with the money. Mr. Jeremiah Leavitt then Sterling Low oi! Wool There wore sRVcn contestants, and tho ra good. In tiie auto race three entered. Messrs. D. Spencer. Claude Weeks and B. C. Crabtrcc. Tlie last named had engine trouble and Mr. D. Spencer won both beats of miles each. The squaw race did not. fill, an un- heard of occurrence in tins locality so far as previous meets go. In the one-mile running race free- for-all, tlie winner was Mr. English's bay gelding. There were three other good horses in the race, Mr. Leavitt's "Grey Chas. Powell's, (a Mon- tana bay mare, and Mr. C. Raby's bay gelding. The stake race, frcc-for-all. in which the riders turn a stake; at each end, was won again by Mr. Dudley Leavitt and his gray horse. There were four entries and Mr. Robt. Low beat out at the last turn, but was disqualified because of having knocked down one of his stakes in turning. The relay race was contested by Jerry Leavitt's string of three horses, his "Grey a buckskin gelding and a bay gelding, and Mr. Chas. Pow- ell's bunch, in which was the old fav- orite, the hay gelding Cyclone. Mr. Leavitt's son took the lead at tiie start and was never caught by Mr. Powell, although the changing saw them very close at tlie last moment. Mr. Pow- ell's horse Cyclone was saddled and in jumping for his seat he landed be- hind the saddle; the delay was. fatal as the moment's loss gaire the Levitt horse "Grey Dick the start that was never headed. A matched race was to have been between 0. O. Biglow's buckskin and Lorin BHlingsley's bay horse, but tbts last named did not show up and lost his forfeit. This was for a side. Great praise was given the exhibits n the horses, especially by tlie judge, Mr. Galbraith, of Manitoba. He said the stallions at Cardston were the best shown in the south country. This bodes well for the future of the horse business here.
