P.O. Box 1352 Barnsley Block, Grabb. Street, The Great Clothiers of the Great West i SPORTS LABOR DAY SPORTS Monday afternoon's program of sporting events was in every way most entertaining and successful. The list was a one but the big crowd that thronged the square did not diminish till the last race was fin- ished. Some good time was made in the racing events, particularly the, hundred yards where the time was 10 2-5 seconds. .Several of the events provided considerable amuse- ment as well as interest. The greasy pole climbing was without doubt the most ludicrous of all. The pre- sident and other gentlemen 'who had charge of -the sports deserve the thanks of the "citizens for the heavy day's w.ork which devolved on them arid the excellent manner in which it was .carried out. The first event pulled off was the hundred yard handicap race. The first place was won by Spence, Mead and Laurie taking second and third respectively., 3 The winners of the three-legged race were Aikens and ,8eaman. first, and Pearson and Arnold second, there being only two prizes for this event. Mrs. Cameron carried off the hon- ors in .the married ladies' race. Mrs. Cooper and Mrs. Luchtrtook the sec- ond places. The obstacle. race was among the most interesting if not the most in- teresting of all the sports. To crawl under-a canvas sheet pinned to the ground." through a barrel suspended on a rope and then vault a hurdle, was .all that was required of the combatants tiere. It provided considerable, amusement some of the contestants -getting rather badly mix- eel up with: the barrels. J. Mor- mead took first and R. Swart and A. C. Swan second and third. In .the hop, step and jump Cardell had over a-two ieet lead on the next man, making the creditable distance of 37 feet-2 inches. Spenoe follow- ed with, 35 feet and Pearson next with. 33 feet 8 inches. The sack race, another of the events that helped to create consid- ejrable amusement by'the tumbles which some of the participants in- dulged in, was won by Eddie Sin- slak. J. .Thompson and W. Stowe were the next two. A special event open only to elec- trical workers was a climbing contest. This was a most interest- ing sport'and the boys did some fast climbing. The first place went to Daniels and the second to. McOreavy Djiniels climbed -the pole, crossed A. C. Stewart was .the lucky man in the carpenters race, there being only one prize in this race. A. vejjy slippery pole with two hams suspended from the top looks like a case of hoping in vain. But there were some there who were game en- ough to make''a pretty strenuous' try. They received no end of encourage- ment and advice as to how to pro- ceed. One of these timely hints was "turn the pole upside down-and slide up." It was after a number of vain attempts the prize was finally cap- tured by Coerll, who used a consid- erable quantity of sand in getting there. The two prizes in the- Printers' race .went to Tuckwell and Westley. The last and biggest race of; the afternoon was the mile race. Jones, who started off with a nice easy swing and maintained it right to the end, touched the tape first. White and Holden took second and third. This concluded the events of the a thoroughly enjoyable series all the way through. The following were the officers in charge of the various events: .Committee: A. Frayne, J. Ritchie, Holton, E. .Bergmeri, J. McTag- gart, S. W. Tuckwell. Marshall: D. J. McCormick. Starters: F. T.' Robins, J. Bawden W. J. Nelson. Handicappers: A. Johnston, Alex Stafford, Mr. White.
