Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 20, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta QE SIX THE LETHDRIDGE DAILY HERALD FRIDAY, SEPTEMBEH 20, 1918 BRINGING UP FATHER' By G.

WTCHER OP WAtER>" GETICH PRAISE, BUI S A SMART BAL [-PLAyER stuffy Mclnnis is ot the stuff that ftasebali players are made. Stuffy was a star ball tosser back in 1905 as a Student at the Gloucester (Mass.) high school, and he never got over it. la 1908 he started his professional career on the diamond with the New Bedford team of the Eastern league. Prom New Bedford he was shifted to Haverhill, of the same league, and ft was while he was with the last-;hamed club that one of Connie Mack's icouts got sight of the .voungster and recommended his purchase. Connie followed the adviice; and for a few hundred dollars became possessed of one ot the steadiest all-round players fhe game has ever produced. Stuffy was an infielder when he Jjlned the Athletics, and for the first ttireefor four years as aMackman he covered shortstop. "Covered" is the light word in the right place. Pew balls indeed there were that came in his general direction without having Hie lid put all over them. In the . course ot time Mack discovered a Veakness at first base and he informed Stuffy that he had been promoted Md in-the future would be expected to guard the region about the first sack.

Phone 616 Stuffy acquitted himself just as well at his new position as he had in his old position, and soon came to be re garded as one of the Wading first basemen of the big leagues. Mack finally decided to break up his 1100,000 infield, and one after another of the stars 'Who had aided Connie in bringing pennants and world's championships to Quaker town were put on the block and sold to the highest bidder. Bat Mack held on to Stuffy until this year, when, just before .Cie season opened, "McInnLs was sent to the Boston Red So.t. Ed. Barrow, manager of the Bostons, as a result of the "ravages" of war, found himself without a third baseman on the eve of the opening of the 191S campaign. Stuffy was elected to fill-the vacaEcy. And he was filling it, too, to the satisfaction of all concerned, until Hoblitzell, the veteran first baseman of the Red Sox, answered his country's call. Stuffy again was commandeered to close the breach. So Mclnnis returned to the near comer, where he was a powerful factor in keeping the Red Sox in the van in the. race for the pennant, RED SOX GET $1,108.45 EACH Boston, Sept. 12.--Members of the Boston American league baseball team, winners of the 1918 world's championship, received $20,837.45 today as their share of" the gate receipts from the world's series. Manager Edward Barrow and the 14 Boston regulars were each given $1,108-.45, while Infielder Fred Thomas, who obtained a furlough from the Great Lakes naval training station to play for the Red Soi, was voted ?750. Various sums were given to other players now in war service, the trainers, ground-keepers, and others. The check did not include ten per cent., which it had been voted to donate to . charitable organizations, and | the players instructed Capt. Harry Hooper to obtain the amount from the commission, and distribute it among Boston war charities.

Haugh-ton from the presidency of the'Boston Braves to take up active duties as a major connected .with the national army chemical war service, strange to say. excited little or no comment. Major Haughton is the first .Vation-al league'club owner to respond to the call of his countr}-. "Cap" Til Huston, half owner of the New York Yank-ee.s. enlisted sl\prtly after the United States entered the war," and Ban .Tohn-son last fall threatened to enlist, but Haughton is the first. National leaguer to take the step. Haughton has for years been one of the foremost figures in American sport history. He gained fame in the late '90s as a football and baseball player at. Harvard universit.v.. Later as a coach. Haughton comes from an old Massachusett's family and for years held an executive positionin the State Street Trust company ot Boston. Bis  coachiiig system at Harvard revolutionized ' modern football. Hf' was a great organizer and driver, and unquestionably 'the N'.AC.W.S. wii;i find him invaluable in organizing and driving the very important "work connected with that alrm of tlie. service. He will sojourn only-for a brief time in Washington and �wiU;J)?,g.yer in France shortly, where so many of his one time football pupils are making touchdowns and goals fiotii'the field in the vital game against the Potsdam peril. Of course, it "was impossible for him to continue-Sss the chief executive of the Braves.- Ilis resignation was accepted with regret. Major Haughton has had .a'wide training in military matters. For years he was in the first corps cadets of Boston and made a study o^.all the military duties connected with - that energetic organization's work. Later he ^went to the Plattsburg" military camp, even before Uncle'Sam threw his hat into the internatioli^l ring. It is well known among Haughton's friends that he has been pining for a chance to get Into the biggest .|?ame of all. He is and always Kas^^been an expert in the more red blcjo^cii games of peace. Nothing fitter, thffl,*'thfliE h'e thke a hand in the grandest game'that was ever presented the world. He was made president ot the Braves In December, 1915i iihoftly after Jim Gaffney sold the club.' It is almost too obvious to say'tjiat the Braves-but for the war, ncfty would have one ot the best teams in either league. Officials of the cluh have aljsjlute-ly nothing to say about the election of a president to take the place-vacated by Haughton. Those close to the workings ot the team believe that Business Manager Walter E. H^pgood is directly in line for the position of chii^t executive, believing him to have had the necessary experience as well as the innate ability. Pending;.the election of a president the chances are that "Hap" will carry the presidential duties with his present not. very light obligations connected with the biggest ball park in the world.  BELLEVOE MINER KILLED IN ACCIDENT Car Ran Over Him-Inquest is Held-K, C. Drive a Success -Death of Frank Girl SHORTEST HIT IN FAST BALL GAME Heinie Groh Performs Feat in the Recent Clash Between the Giants and Reds. New York, Sept. 14.-"Various players have laid claim to the honor ot making the longest lilt in a championship ball game, yet there is no dispute as to who Is entitled to the credit for making the shortest. Heinie Groh accomplished that feat in a recent game between the Giants and Reds in Cincinnati. The Reds' third-sicker lunged vigorously at a-ball delivered to him by Perritt, but only "topped" the pellet and. darted ^way toward first base. Bill Rariden, who was catching, looked ia vain for tjij�'ball, as did every member of the Giant infield, until at last Groh had reached first in safety. Umpire Rlgler pointed it out to Rariden. The pellet lay on fair territory not more than two Inches in front of the plate, having stuck in the depression in front of the rubber, where it hugged the earth, neither bounrtiss sc?^ rolling away. j (From Our Own Correspondent) Wlairmore.

Charbonnier, Green, Larvis and Hamilton took an auto trip to the Waterton lakes a tow days ago. They also visited Raymond and Cardston. They bagged two .score ducks on the way. Sunday wa.H a quieter day than usual. There were not so many automobiles out.

According to the Gazette the cards were to be out by the first of September or earlier. BIG SHIPMENTS CATTLE OVER THE (From Our Own Corrpspondsnt) Cardston, Sept. 18.-Surely the CP. R. is not losing any money upon the Cardston branch even though passenger traffic be light. Over twelve hundred head of cattle have been sent out from this point alone during the last and the present weeki. The largest sales possibly were made to Mr. C. Woursell, a^d Mr. Williamson for P. Burns Co., secured a large share of the cattle. It is rumored, however, that the whole lot eventually reach the big. Calgary firm's control. Last week some eight hundred head went out belonging the the church ranch, (about 300 head), the Hill Spring cattle company (about 150), Mr. Robt. Lowe (about 100), Messrs. Parker, Henderson and Shafer (about 140), and Mr. J. H. Ellison (about 20). Of these part went to Mr. Woursell, who contracted for them earlier in the season, and part to Mr. Williamson. This week the chief shippers have been Mr. J. N. West (about 160), Mr. S. Walberger and brothers (about 100), Mr. S. J. Tolley (about 40), Mr. Peter Nielson (about 20), Mr. C. Dawson (about 20), Messrs. "Wm. Webster and Shaw (about 25). Messrs. Jos. and Sterling Low (about 25).' ThSse sales will bring a large sum of money into the district and with local shipments of the past two weeks, doubtless will aggregate two hundred thousand dollars. Of course no consideration-is given the poor passenger when the C. P. R. figures it can make a few more shekels out ot the settlers down this line by cutting out a daily train and ot course Mr. Schinnick could not see any big cattle herds next the railway track when he came out so of course there Is "very little business in sight" for the C-PR. because of a falling off In grata shipments this season. Mr. Schinnick was the special entoy or ambassador-general for the Railway Commission, and the only august personage to whom our trifling grievances evidently have been referred. The commission takes no notice of our protests because forsooth the said Schinnick has the commission's files all up his sleeve and has carried them off to the west in his mission ot deciding for the board what shall be done tor the ten thousand people on the Cardston branch, who are too small ajactor In the great aggregate of the C. P. R.'s extended interests to even be given a civil reply or a hearing before the case is decided in favor of the big interests. CANADA BREAKS ANOTHER RECORD Ottawa, Sept. 19.-Canada has again smashed all records for speed in wooden shipbuilding. The latest feat has lowered tWs country's own mark by about 60 per cent.

OowliNg WIL^ BE IINTAINED IN WEST, SAYS HEAD Edmonton, Sept. 20.-N. W. Rowell, who as president of the council. Is head of the Northwest Mounted Police, is touring the west in company with Comptroller McLean. Mr. Rowell has admitted during his present tour that the future of the mountles Is uncertain, so far as the exact nature of its duties is concerned. He has definitely stated, however, that no action is under consideration that would involve its discontinuance. At Regina he said that one or the possibilities was that the force would be turned into a royal Canadian regiment of cavalry, with headquarters in that city, but even on this point he declared that a positive statement was impossible. "Citizens of the west may rest assured," the privy councillor is quoted as saying, "that nothing will be done with reference to the R.N.W.M.P. that will in any way reflect on the splendid record and traditions of the force. The future, uncertain to this extent, that the normal work of the force has been, to a large extent, taken over by other police bodies, and these other bodies will largely control the administration ot tJlvll law even after the war." Likely To Be Enlarged. Controller .McLean, while en tour to Edmonton, has also stated that It is the intention of the government to retain the R.N.W.M.P. in possession of its present buildings and outfit. It might be the popular impression, he has said, that the usefulness of the force is practically over, but tho general public is not in a position to know the amount of work still carried on by the force. Police forces In Pennsylvania and* other states had taken their pattern from the R.N.W. M.P., which was still considered a' model. The chances are, Jlr. McLean thinks, that the force will be enlarged rather than discontinued. \ Ottawa, Sept, 18.-Four Judicial vacancies In tho province of Quebec have boen filled, and while an ofllclal statement v/ill not bo forthcoming before the end of tho wo^k, It la thought that the appointments are: Clilof justice King's bench, Judge Lamothe; l.Clng's bench, J.
