Bemiet-t, who was the feature figure cm the race card, was caught between the steering.gear, and body of the crumpled car, his ribs were broken, piercing his lungs, and; .though rush- ed to the iUacleod General hospital, lie expired inside half au hour. The fatality occurred in the third event oE the holiday afternoon's .auto racing program being staged by the llacing Team, a gal- axy of; speed-artists who have won glory south of the line. Hennett was. driving IMS'car at 60 miles an he attempted to speed up on the .north' turn. Some- thing went amiss witii the steering gear, the racer turned two complete somersaults and Death, I'iding the race- with-flarc-Bcvil Bennett, claim- ed his own. J. Gear, mechanic in the car "with Bennett, was thrown clear on the first turn, and cam? out with a few bruises. Very few ill the crowd realized that the accident had been fatal. In fact, the races were proceeded and the death o[ licnnett was not known till the-crowd--returned down--town. I lie victim of'lhe accident lived for about-halt "an hour after reaching t-he hosp'tal., His last words before ex- piring were, "Let me die.

In all probability Shreman The- atre ncvfir before housed so many peo- ple iis it did 'ant night on the occa- sion of Mm Southern Alberta boxing bouts. Before the con- tests had been staged fifteen minutes, the box office was selling standing room, and nll.tlie ringside seats had been sold. Were the bouts worthy of the turn- out? Hatlicr! H was the classiest entertainment of the Quo ens bury art that has ever been staged hare, with- out competitors were of a high order, and the bouts were conducted with extreme smoothneKS jmd. without a halt. They lasted Cor two and a half hours exactly, and there was not an id'io moment. There was a batch of war bulletins on hand to read to the crowd, but nobody want- ed to listen to them, they were all so rapt up in the bouts. A great number of the local entries were loudly cheered when they were conspicuous by their absence, eluded. The referee promptly stopped the proceed- ings, and awarded the bout to Dunlop. McDonald -was mortified a.t the deci- sion, and claimed his innocence of foul intent. The cro'wd sympathized with Dunlop, but both fighters were greatly admired for their skill. It was the curtain ringer of the evening. Featherweights There were but two featherweight boxers in Hue, George far sou and Joe McGuinness. It took four to settle this go. Both were evenly matched, and the advantage alternat- ed from time to time. Parsons dis- played the best-ring generalship, and was declared the winner. The hoys but only one outside entry failed to show up, and those boys from outside 140 Special Red Morgan of Coalhnrst and Jimmy certainly made a hit and carried off a put up a clever and even fight in bunch of tho medals. Lightweights First The first bout was a lightweight go between Urban Parr of Nobletord and a special class of 140 pounds.

The local boy after the first round hung out the dis- tress sign and Parr was awarded the bout, Parr later on in the evening went up against Eari Welsh in the final of the lightweight class, and again -Parr was the victorious ghdiator In the fust lound Welsh after his man ham mer and tongs and continued his on slaught In the second round till about halt way, when Parr located Welsh's jaw with a resounding .smash, and from" then on the fight was Parr's. Welsh, was in a bad way at the end of the second, ant! in the third Parr made good .his advantage, and carried the fight to Welsh, who was soon ail in, whereat his seconds threw up the sponge. Welsh put up a game battle. Welterweights The second bout of the evening was a welterweight clash. These welter- weights were the boys to fight and they displayed a knowledge and n style of boxing thai -was a treat. Pro- fessionals have not shown anything better than these mixers at any time around, here. D. Dunlop of Blairmore and Jack Davis of Coalhurst 'were the first pair to. meet. Right and left swings, jahs, uppercuts and splendid footwork .vere seen in their repertoire and they didn't waste time. Dunlop has a powerful right, which did a lot of dam- age, and he gained a shade or two on. his opponent and was awarded the 'igm. Later on Dunlop gaitt.etl.tlie "welter- weight championship by getting the rangcmenls to have- the team show I verdict over Ronnie McDonald of Com- liere' next Friday afternoon.
