Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 12, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX THE LETI^BRIDGE DAILY HERALD THlJaSOAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 1915 "BRINGING UP FATHEPx' By G. McManus 3a yJlFE 1^ V/ITH HEH-HB-^  JOE. - WMT (-' FOR. N�- -^ The Sport Page Freddie Hewitt, Good Sport, Was Also a Gallant Soldier Lethbridge sport circles lost a fam iUar figure when Pte. Freddie Hevrilt made the supreme sacrifice at the ' ifront. The accompanying photo is a good likeness of the late gallant soldier. His parents have received th^ following colsoling letter from a chum of his who -was witli him in the charge in which he met his death . He says that Fred was wounded and on the way back to the rear when, a Hun bullet finished his career. France. Aug. 13lh, 131S. "In the Field", JMr. M. Hewitt, North Lethbridge, Alta., Dear Friend,-Today I feel it my tluty, although it is a very sad one to write you a line and let you know of your loss. Your son Fred has made the great sacrifice. It is not within my power of adjectives or description to suitably express what a fine and gallant son you possessed. Ton can feel deservedly proud to be the father Oif such a boy. I was fortunate enough to be his platoon sergeant and naturally we came to know each other very Intimately. To me and to all the boys iji my platoon he was a good pal. We iihall always mourn his,loss and cherish the memorr of a comrade who was every Inch of him, a gentleman and a fighter. He received his first �wound shortly before we had reached on? objective. He was then : ? : : : THE BIG GAME STIUL ON ? With the season of 191S waning, the sport pages will become somewhat duller, owing to the lack of games, but at the same time, what great and interesting things can b'b written about the athletes, who have made good in the greatest of all games.-the game over in France and Flanders. Sportsmen over there have mora than justified themselves, and have justified the public for its interest in the doings of these men. Tenuis,, cricket, pugilism, baseball, football, track athletics, racing, sculling, canoeing-all have given generously of their best performers for the army, and the boys have beea in the ran of heroism. Let us speed the day of their coming back by helping in every possible way here at home. Help the threshers. That's a necessity in sight now. Sign up with a threshing gang, and help get the grain in. Iiome iu the same game-and broke Lou's spirit. Criger was jeered and heotel; it was really tlu- turning point of his career, and he did little good work after that. Cobb was the highest paid baseball player in the history of the game and one of the few who deserved every cent of the $20,000 paid him. He was worth it at the "gate " several times ! over. For years lie was also the rallying point around whicli the team buil". both offense and defence. When, during the present year, lie was needed elsevihere than in his regular position, he proved that he could step In and substitute in more than one berth. Wliile we of the immediate present consider Tyrus as being unequaled, men who fifteen years ago knew La-. joio and Wagner as they were in i their prime, will take issue with any suggestion that Ty was the greatest player of all time. Both Lajole and Wagner have followers who claim this honor for their favorites; but the fact remains that wliile Wagner and Lajoie were great a long titne. they did not achieve the extreme heights of success that Co'ob attained against more difficult oppo sition. F, FAIR CROP ILO Thorough Tests Will be Made to Ascertain Germinating Quali* ties of Grain : ? : ? ? ? IRELAND BOAST* OF WORLD-BEATER Followers'of track and field, sports in Ireland, are of the opinion that they have seen the advent of another Coneff in the person of F. J. Ryder, a long-distance tyro, who recently won a three-mile handicap from scratch in the cracking good time of 15:27 2-5. The race took place on the old cinder track at Lansdowne road, Dublin, and the fact that Ryder did not have to extend himself considerably enhances the performance. After two miles had been disposed of Ryder had matters all his own way, and won in a walk by 80 yards. The opinion of the critic in the Quid Sod is that before the close of the season the newcomer will show 14:30 for the three-mile route. TRAINING SCHOOL FOR THE SOLDIERS Winnipeg, Sept, 11.-It is stated today that Jfanitoba Provincial Treasurer, Hon, Edward Brown, and Dr. Rij| M. Blake, M.P. are laying before the' Ottawa authorities an extensive plan for the transfer of the agricultural college in St. Vital to be used by the government for a training school for soldiers. About $4,200,000 was invested in the St. Vital buildings by the late Manitoba government and all revenue will be returned to this province by the federal government it the deal goes througli. ? ? ? ? : ? ? ? ; ? ? carpetball team to a series of ? ? friendly games in the Moose > ?

One of the best tributes to Tyr.i.s Raymond Cobb, soon to say goodbye to baseball for all time, is that paid the Peerless Georgian by VA. VVray in the St. Louis Post-Despatch, who predicts for Ty as great a record in military service and after that in business as he has enjoyed in.the diamond game. Cobb has sho-wn, says Wray, qualities entirely aside from baseball t;iat guarantee him achievement. .Courage, confidence and class combine in him with great initiative to guarantee accomplishment in almost anything he undertakes. This player came into the major league under circumstances fhat would have discourt^ged any but a stout heart. He had practically to whip the Detroit baseball club with his fists to prove tliat bis swelled head owed its enlargement-if any- to real merit. He fought and played his detractors into a state of entire submission and continued to be the Detroit team, in both a baseball and fistic sense, ever after. Cobb was impetuous-his only fault, It led him into frequent encounters in wliich there was alwayij a basic reason for the Cobb explosion. He jumped into the grandstand after a fan who used offensive language addressed to Cobb. He smashed a butcher's salesman who spoke insultingly to Cobb's wife. He met and battered Into submission Charles. "Choke-'era" Herzog at a Dallas hotel, after being bullied on the field. He had a fighting spirit and one totally without a thought of defeat. I remember wiien Lou Criger, tlien a great catcher, was brought to tho St. Louis Browns from Boston. Criger, commenting on Cobb's wonderful base-stealing record of the previous year, had stated that he would "stop" Col)b-expressed the view that Cobb would not steal a base while he was catching. "I'll get his goat the first time we hook up," Criger w&s quoted as sa.v-Ing. Alas, the first time they clashed was in Detroit, Cobb stole until the crowd laughed at Criger. If memory serve.s, he c�elQ *5cond, third and CABMAN GAY (From the Sun) The wheat-is not yielding as well as some expected, .while others are setting more thau they looked for. Up to the time of going to press the best yield reported is twenty-three busliels to the acre threshed on the farm of M. L. Mundy by R. B. Snyder. Many other farmers report yields of twenty bushels, and A. O, Twedt reports lwenty-oJi^%ushelS on the farm of Roy Church * at Bowville. Next week most of th^ threshing will be fini.shed up and we will be in a position to give a better estimate of the yields. The removal from town, of Dr. Bryans leaves Carmangay without a mayor. As the annual town elections take place in a few weeks It is likely that acting mayor Mowat will sit in the chief magistrate's chair for the balance of the term. Carmangay school opened on Tuesday, September 3rd, with a good attendance in all the Hat and Sedgewick, Vermilion is frozen some and it is not expected that the wheat there will germinate. At Stony Plain the wheat received some damage from the frost but apparently the oats and barley are all right. At Sedgewick the barley and wheat were failures but the oats will be good for feed. !At Athabasca there^is a good crop. The wheat is injured to some extent, but the oats and barley are good. At the Olds farm there is a splendid crop this year and at Claresholm they have as good a crop of wheat as has been grown since the farm was in operation as a government demonstration station. , There may not be so much to the acre but the quality Is of the best, states Mr. Carlyle. The oat crop Is a good one, and they have a twenty-acre field of corn that has come on splendidly. This was planted for ensilage. Raymond shows a good crop of wheat and oats also. of days with his family iu North Lethbridge. Mrs. Pellett has also returned fiom her holidays in the east. Mr. Archie Beveridge was visiting his brother Andrew Beveridge of Coleman last week. Mr. .and Mrs. "Bob Chapman have returned from Mooso Jaw, Sask. Airs. Alex.

With the British Armies In France, Sept. 11.- (Associated Press).-Just before the British launched their attack this morning on the enemy trendies northwest ot Peiziere, below Gouzeaucourt, the Germans, for the first time, employed a new kind of projectile in an effort to drive the New Zealand troops from nearby positions.
