Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 7, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta r PAGE SIX THE LETHbniDGE DAILY HERALD , \ SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 1918 'BRINGING UP FATHER", By G. McManus LETflBlSElfllN SMCUFFEM Link Dunsworth Writes Sports in Camp-Skeen Pitching for Cavalry of Trooper Leon Dunsworth. now Kith the Mounted Police cnvalry unit at Shorncliffe, .1 former member of ttc Herald staff and the local i)asket-iall and baseball teams, writes his l)rother, Dr. Dunsworth, as follows: Shorncliffe, England. July U, lOlS. Dear Doc,-Well how goes the old y. 31. ,C. A. ajid those in it and eround?' The bunch ara pretty well broke up IjOW but de Manbey, Nelson and Geo. Kemm and I are in the same bank I room and Hudson, and Jack Sunimers are next door. Geo. Kemm at present is in the Jiosfital with the measles and Percy Is situated a little way off. Poor old Jack S. is suffering pretty much with his itlat feet and we have been going through such an all round stiff training during the last week that wo have all been pretty well petered out. . Although nearly 6,000 mijes from iotae I still succeed in keeping i.'i I sport and have played more tiasebaij i this season than for several. I have made a place on the representative fcall. team of all the cavalry in Shom-cllfl^, consisting of Fort Qajry Horse, Strathcona � Horse, Royal Canadian Dragoons, Canadian Light Horse and R. N. "W.- M. "P., and so far have got along fine, playing left field but have to keep humping to keep a place. It is by far the fastest team I ever played with and consists of Winnipeg, Re giji2 and Lethbridge players. Skeen is the "other Lethbridge man � am! pitched two games for the old home town last year. Long will remember him. I sure wish we could get a basketball game, but it is rather strange over here and positively no chance of it. I wrote Geo., Irish, Roddie and Husby the other day but have since heard they came across and were situated at Bramshot. I wish I could find out. We saw them as they came through Regina on their way to Peta-wawa. Well, 1 hope this finds you O.K., hale and hearty. Remember me to any of the boys and keep up the good work cf dropping us an occasional line. W^ll, so long. Sincerely, Leon B.

Responsible for Indians' Downfall FIRST IIG By ED. BANG One man above all otiuis stands forth as the 191S nemesis of tho Cleveland Indians. Washington as a whole has been more or less of a jin.K to Jim Dunn's boys, but when one sifts througli the dope he finds one individual standing out preemin-ent as the real Jonah of the Cleveland club, a person who by his own deeds kept the Indians from cinching the pennant as early as a' month ago. His name is Babe Ruth. The master pitcher-hitsmith, Goliath Tarzan or whatever you will, worked the undoing of the Indians in more ways than one. By his won- and hitting. The Indians won Aug ust 2 with Covaleskie pitching, 6 to a. With' two out in the first and first occupied. Babe singled and then I another single scored Strunk.

As set forth before Babe didn't the two teams and Cleveland won two games. On June 5 in Cleveland is 39,31^ Ciiic�go.

He got a two-bagger, after being -passed purposely twice and flying itwt once,, and he assisted in scoring^l^o himself, but the Red'Sox for otlce would have won without him. In the final game of the year Babe came back to pitcli and make it safe. He failed, having gone like many another pitcher, to the well once . too often, and the Indians gave him a sound beating, but his season's record is sufficient without that lost game.

Enzmann was pitching when Ruth bumped the ball for four sacks but Bagby relieved him and received credit for the victory. The following day CovaleBkie held Ruth hitless but Stanley lost to Jones, 1 to 0 in ten innings. On June 7 Babe tripled off Bagby, scoring Sheati and came home on Mc-Innis' single. Tho Red Sox scored four runs in the first inning but tho Indians fipally won out 14 to 7.

Babe returned to left field and cracked out in single in the eighth but was left. The next ijay also In Cleveland, Babe opened the second Inning by doubling off Morton, was sacrificed to third and scored on Thomas' single. Babe opened the seventh with a single but was left. The Indians won the game 3 to 1. On June fi In the old country it does not cost so much to keep a course in order a.s the ground as a rule is more adaptable, easier worked up, and labor Is much cheaper. It is surprising at what small expense some of the courses are run. Of course, ou the first-class 6r championship courses, the expenses are much heavier, but as many of them belong to private clubs where the annual subscription may be anything from �5 to �20, others are kept up by the city councils where a regular fee (daily) is charged, or weekly or monthly tickets can be bought, and as there are always large numbers of players, the income as a rule is more than sufficient to cover all expenses. Take St. Andrews In Scotland- tot instance. When I played over the course the first time there was no charge made, but later, owing to such crowds of players-and there are three courses quite close together-they had to fix a fee. On my last visit, July, 1911, there were hundreds of players on the links every day. On the old course, which is the championship course, there is some wonderful turf, some parts of the fairways being-better than I have seen used for putting green* on other courses. It is literally covered with bunkers of all kinds and sizes-blind as well as open. You play up to a green over undulating ground and think it is an easy shot to the green. It is if you are straight on the lino, but should you either slice or pull a little, you will get all the troitble and more.than you want, for as suFe as your name is what It is you have found a bunker which, xou never thought was there. He is a proud player who can say he went round � St. Andrews old golf course wiihout being bunkered once. Although;:.5t is undoubtedly a first class coureei still I have played on others whidi I think are as good if not better, but a St. Andrews player will not admit that, North Berwick, old course, is, I think, as good >a test of golf as any course I know. One thing is certain, that no player will make a good score on it unless he as playing first class golf; the only objection I have against it is that the first hole. Point Garry out, and the seventeenth hole Point Garry in are on the same green, which is large enough, only it is apt to cause a little inconvenience should players be approaching from both sides at the same time. After that there is plenty of room. Hazards and bunkers there are galore, the putting greens are good and well guarded with bunkers. ROUGHLY HANDLED, Anjsterdam.

My first year In tho city, 1912, i played twice on the country cluli old course at the river bottom. 1 found it rather a hard course to play owing to so much climbing up the (oulees, still it wap a good sporting roursc. On looking over it later I found a fine stretch of ground that coiilri have been used which would liavc made It just as good, ever, bettci- I think, and easier both to play and walk over. Why it was le^t out I liavfi often wondered. The new coiirfie, out near the pro-i vincial jail was really a nice one, and again at Cleveland, Co-1 well laid out; the only mistake made valeskie and Bagby stopped Ruth (with it, was in my opinion, attempt-in his tracks with his bludgeon, but i ing to work up grass greens.

St. Andrews, although perhaps a shade easier to play, still it Is a severe test of golf, and you can have all the trouble you want before you finish the eighteen holes. One of the best courses I have played over is at Troon, a few mileii'froni Prestwich. They sure have some sand bunkers there, sand hills they call them. Some players t know would call them mountains. They are something to tackle. If you are fortunate Enough to carry them
