' No grade of citizens has given with a ] more generous heart than those �who have done so much to gain the supreme honors of the athletic world ior Uncle Sam. When the history, of the present great war is written, sports will gain In prestige over all other forms of endeavor.  Sportsmen Answer Country's Call. The American sportsman is answering his country's call in a manner which guarantees the future of all athletic activities. It has proved a revelation to the entire world. " AU forms ot athletics have done more than their share to increase Uncle Sam's fightitig forces to. the necessary strength to put over the Tflnaing blow on Kaiser Bill and his Warring bpches. .. : Professional and amateur sports have established precedents that are sjire to live tor many centuries in American history.

All have given with a generosity which has threatened their very lives. However, the tact that the.v have been overgenerous in their response is not going to hurt them in the" least. The'grade of spirit which these patriotic displavs of duty to the country has kindled in the hearts of the younger element is sure to completely offset the loss of our present-day leaders. The fact that a majority of our present-day champions are in the ranks fighting for the great principles of a free-bom people should cause chose who remain at home to do all in their power to develop lads capable of .upholding the athletic traditions estiablished �y these patriotic heroes. To neglect athletes would be to cast a reflection on the character of the achievements of these Jads. The last requests made by many of these lads, before embarking for "over there," was that all branches of athletics would he continued in their absence. Who is a better judge of the wants of the future than the for-athletic stars .who are daily shedding their life's ilood on the battlefield "over there?" "Peerless Ted" was one of the first of our chatmiioaa to volunteer his services at the-firstMnkling of trouble with 'the kaiser. The Philadelphia star enlisted in the aviation corps and was sent to Cornell university to , learn all the secrets of flying. He 1 was among the first American airmen to be sent abroad to be taught the latest methods of downing, a boche rival flier. He has spent considerable time as an observer in a plane, and has just been given orders to journey to the front line as a scout aviator. No one should be better qualified to offer suggestions as to the proper methods to pursue in developing our present-day .vouths than Meredith. Athletics to Win War � : : > : ? ? ? : : : : "Death grip" should be "included in the same category with hoop snakes, etc., says a noted swimming instructor. Of course, the person in trouble does put considerable energy into his movements, but as far as any "death grip,"' as . is generally understood, "there ain't no such animal." For a great many years tfiere was on exhibition in an English museum a book of Keats' poems with a mark on the cover, which was supposed to have been the thumb print of Shelle%-. the poet, who drowned, and taken from his hand when the-body was recovered. Ralph Thomas, an English swimming authority, investigated this historic esanjple of "death grip" and found that the book in question was taken from the pocket of Shelled, and. furthermore, that his body was not recovered for two months and that decomposition had set in to such an extent that even if he had grasped the book when he drowjled there would have been no ^roof. ' I have heard of many cases of so-called "death grip," but have never known of any one who had firsthand knowledge. Another statement often made is that good swimmers often drown. This is not so. Captain Webb, who swam the English channel, is the example often cited to prove this assertion. Webb ..was killed, if my memory is good; in trying some fool stunt in the .Niagara rapids. It is very probable that he was killed by striking some rock or suag, but in any case �la not think we would advise any one to try this feat. However, of the 6,000 persons who were drowned in this country last year investigation would show that there were very few good swimmers! in the bunch. Many cases of heart failure in the water are rated as drownings. The good swimmers usually develop J^ very great respect for the water and do not take unnecessary risks. Don't swim across the lake without a boat unless accompanied by at least two strong swimmers. Don't dive into strange water nntili you have actually proved to yourself that the water is deep enough for the dive in question. If you'are a poor swimmer and are wading out into the lake keep your face toward tite shore so that in case you step into deep water you will be headed in the right direction. Don't think that you can do everything that you see any one else do. Dont' fail to join one of the nata-toriums this winter and gfet In the life-saving t;lasses and get so you can be of some ^use in case any of your friends need assistance. boston:confioent of taking series Barrow Expected (o Start Jones In the Box for the Fifth Game CONNIE MACK NOT WORRIED Athletics' Manager Gives His Viev�8 on Future of Baseball Boston. Mass., Sept. 10.-Cheerful confidence prevailed today in the camp of the Boston Hed Sox followers as they prepared to watch whatHhey firmly believed would be the fir�il game of the world series between the Boston Americans and the Chicago Nationals. Yesterday's thrilling contest placed Boston in the lead, three games to one, and the "loyal New England fans expected the team to clean up. the series without unnecessary delay. . Among the players, however, there was no such assurance that the series would end today. The Cubs had lost none of their fighting spirit. Manager Barrow planned to start Jones in the box for Boston today, holding Mays in reserve. Manager Mitchell's decision as to the Chicago pitcher was still held in abeyance early in the day. It was figured by the fans that he would not be likely to send in any of the men who had participated in the previous games_^nd their best guess was that the Red Sox would be called upon to face Heii-drix, a right bander. The weather was ideal for this afternoon's clash. Although there was an autumn chill in the air this morning, the bright sunshine bade fare to bring back 8umniiBi:-like conditions later in the day.

BIJOU MOTOR PARLORS, LTD "THEHOUSt OF SERVICE" While baseball magnates look "with apprehension toward the future, Connie .Mack see.s no cause for alarm. Mack's conclusions may be summed as follows:'nless the war continues two years, ba.seball will feel no permanent ill effect. Second-There will he no break in the relations between the American and National leagues. Third-The seeming unpleasantness developed at Cleveland will be forgotten and Ban Johnson's prestige remain unimpaired. Fourth-No reorganization ot ' the national commission with a view to the elimination of Garry Herrmann is contemplated. Fifth-American soldiers and sailors will not permit baseball to die out. FRONT Prance, Dumes- FRENCH DEPUTY DIES NEAR THE With the French Army in Sept. 10.-(Havas).-Gaston nil, member of the French chamber ot deputies, died early today In a hospital near the front! Shortly before his death. Deputy Dumesnii was decorated with the cross of the Legion of Honor by Premier Clemenceau. JDep-uty Abel Perry, who was T.-oandied at the same time, wag made a chevalier of the Legion ot Honor by the premier. Alex. Allen, chief C.P.Il. train des-patcher. and an old time? ! CaJgary, died after a i:;^ ITnftBS. New York.-Racing is fast becoming the major sport of the United States. Since the ruling on professional baseball was handed down by Secretary Baker and the announcement was made of the shortening of the baseball season this year, there has been a perceptible change in the in-tei-est taken in both the diamond sport and the r.urf, for the diamond interest has been rapidly decreasing. The crowds at the ball parks have been much smaller, white, on the other hand, racing has received a boost and the crowds at the tracka have been much larger. The extension of the racing season in the east guarantees one of' the longest and most promising seasons the turf has ever known. After the close of the present meeting at Saratoga, which so far has produced many unexpected thrills, the horses will be moved to other tracks for short meetings. Belmont Park opens on September 2 and closes again on September 14; Aqueduct, September 16 to 28; Havre de Grace, September 10 to 28; Jamaica, September 30 to October 12; Laurel, October 1 to 31; Yonkers, October 1-) to 26; Pimlieo, November 1 to IS, and Bowie, November 14 to 30. Since the curtailjnent of the baseball season there has been little or no Interest in the "national pastime." Nobody seems to care who wins the pennants, as they consider it mora of a gift than an accomplishment. The same applies to the world's series, it such classic is actually played. Saratoga has had one o( the most successful seasons so far tbaf has ever beeii credited to the Spa.'track. The dead heats are nov; on for the "king" of the turf honors and the 2 and ;i year old honors among the runners. The appearance of the foreign-bred thoroughbreds in America dm\ the prominent place they have already won for themselves in turf history lias done much to boost the sport. Interest in breeding haii been quickened with the bripging to our shores j (From Our Own Correspondent> Cardston, Sept. 7.-The Board of Trade through the vice-president, 3lr. J. C. Cahorn and secretary, S. H. Nelson have been after the train service question and wired the Railway Commission demanding a hearing and restoration of the daily service until such is had' an^ a new decision arrived at. ' If the C. P. R. can overturn the hoard's ruling at will the people of the south country want to know it, as it was the previous impression that the commission was to control the railways. Saturday's Herald and all Calgary papers, e.vcept the Albertan, arrived here on Thursday. No explanation couW be had at the post office for the delay. A weekly newspaper would be quite as quickly received as the daily with such a train service. Berry Parties. Berry parties have been quite frequent of late, the St. Mary's. Lakes in the Glacier National Park being the most promising location for service, berries or saskatoons. A number of cars have been over for the day. Mr. and Mrs. C. K. Snow and family, Messrs. Tanner Bros, and Dr. Scott Brown have reported a very pleasant and successful time berrying. Agricultural School Work. There was an audience of some GOn people listening attentively to W. J.

Adam Scraw has purchased tho house recently vacated by Mr. Shaver nud has moved It out to "his farm a tow miles south-east of town. Of: course, rumor has it that Mr. Scraw is preparing for an event. 13. S. H.

Roy Adams, the brother of C. F. Adams of the firm ot Mulr, .lephson & Adams, Calgary, has been dangerously wounded in the head and lias sustained a fracture ot tho skull. He was a member of a battery at ihe time that Captain Andrew Nal-smithi M.C., was in -command. here in connection with the transfer by Messrs. Oxley &. Low to the new Central Garage Company. He reports few more lively agencies than the one at Cardston, where they have put out 150 cars in a year and a half. Doctor and Mrs. O. D. Weeks motored down from Calgary to spend the week end at Cardston. They are enjoying the many calls made on old friends here. Dr. Weeks is now engaged with the Military Service at Calgary, and is the chief registrar's right hand man for all the country south. The doctor says no part of Alberta looks better than the Cards'j toti district from bis observations on the trip down. of famous European sires and brood mares. It has been predicted that the application of the "work or fight" order to all forms of sport -would" seriously cripple the turf. This, however, is true only to.a certain extent. The govern-nent will hardly apply the order to the horses. It it is applied to the jockeys, no really ,8erioU8 results will follow. Many of the leading jockeys are in the draft age, of course, but there are plenty ot pilots available -ivho would not be affected by the order.
