Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 21, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHDRIDGE DAILTv HERALPv ; SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21. 1918 "BRINGING UP FATHER' By G, McMatiu, �ooonfe�� now we OjM co out po�* a CH*>n�- f�* -:ook ideal- muww �t"T 0*&%*ED "TO ;!. ax > ? ' ; : > ? * ? NEW GUN BROUGHT FAME ? ? : *C* * K* * *  ** ** *�* ** (By Peter P. Carney, America's Leading Authority on Trapshooting). Winning the Grand American handicap-heralded these many years as the premier event of trapdom-is the hope and desire of every trapshooter. It is this hope that springs eternal that brings out such a goodly crop of trap-shooters for the. event year after year. The winning of the Grand American handicap is to a trapshot what the winning of four games in the world's baseball series would be to a basepall pitcher. Both are feats to be proud of. A trapshooter cannot do anything bigger than win the Grand American- and it is impossible for a baseball hurler to achieve more fame than the winning of a quartet of games in the world's series would bring. John Dean Henry, of Elkhart, Ind., like hundreds of others, trailed to the Grand American year in and year, out, and like the hundreds of others lie always felt that some year he-would pull through with the highest score. This was Henry's year. Henry's name was one of the hundreds on the list that you would pass over without giving it second thought. He had never done anything in trapshooting that merited attention outside of Elkhart. An 88 per cent, shooter he was placed on 16 yards. He didn't excite any curiosity during the early days of the tournament by his performances-but in the Grand American there was a new Henry. The Elkhart barber had a new gun. They do say that it is possible to break more targets with a gun that fits. UnquestioBAM* this is true. It Paris, Sept. 19.-The greatest game ob ball ever played ;in the world recently was "pulled off" at one of the American base ports in Prance. The ball was a tearful and wonderful thing, absolutely guiltless of any infringement of the Spalding and Reach patents. A round stone, picked up on the beach, formed its core. Around this unyielding missile were wrapped some rags, and over this tire. tape. Surrounding all this was a piece of.canvas roughly stitched. It was the hardest and the "deadest" ball ever used in competition. A giant could not have hit it over 100 feet with a telegraph pole, and it took a good lick to drive it even as far �as the pitcher. Still, it was a ball: , The heroes who volunteered to act as catchers in this strange contest refused to face the camouflaged boulder without some protection, and they made themselves a glove. A couple of old flannel shirts served as the foundation for this: protector. Somebody cut up an old shoe to'-provide leather for the face of "fhe glove:'and that was sewn on by the same genius that had achieved the 'canvas cover for the ball. The strange contrivance had no fingers, but was held in place by binding it on the hands with twine.

It 1b good logic that one can shoot better with a gun that fits. New Gun and Fame Henry proved the correctness of the above assertion. He used a diflerent gun in every event and always hovered around liis S8 per cent. Several hours previous to the call for the Grand American handicap Henry picked up a gun that was laying in a rack and put it to his shoulder. He liked the fit, bought the gun, and used it for the first ':ime irt the Grand American and turned in a 97 score. ;That gun is going to be very popular with John Dean Henry until his last gasp. Henry was tied with Henry J. Pen-dergast, of Phoenix, N. J., for first honors. Henry was shooting from 16 yards and Prendergast from 22 yards. Pendergast for four successive years has won the championship of the state of New York. .Nothing further needs be said about his ability. Henry'prov-ed best in the slioot-off. The Elkhart man was visibly nervous. He shot as often from 17 yards as he did from 16-but he Tiroke the targets. It was a parallel case to the .shoot-off of last year when the veteran Mark Arie and the newcomer, Charles Larson, toed the mark. Larson was extremely nervous, while Arie was confident. Too confident, for Larson won. Pendergast was so confident of victory that he felt he could not lose. He was ope target ahead and four to shoot, then missed two in succession - both through over-confidence. Remarks by Pendergast "I would give $1000 to shoot at those two targets again," said Pendergast to the writer after the event. "It was the chance" of a lifetime," he continued, "and I thought the honors would come to me. It only sfiows how easily we can be mistaken. It has always been my ambition to win the Grand American, yet when the opportunity presented itself I was unequal. I won more than a thousand dollars in the tournament, and would gladly give it all to have another smash at those two targets that got away." Henry had nothing to say. He was happy. Glad that he won. Too happy to talk. In a way the vletqry of Henry ia a good thing for the sport. It proves that the mediocre shooter has a chan'ce to win the greatest of trapshooting oventB. And. this thought' in mind will encourage many-more shooter* to try their hand in the premier event. 97 garments ,were completed-for the Red CrOBS. Mrs. J. N. Beaubier gave a very interesting and instructive talk on conservation of food. Mrs, Jopling served a nice dainty luncheon appropriate for the times. Child's Welfare The local Women's Institute are superintending a Child's Welfare Conference which will be held in the church Friday afternoon at 2.30. Program! address on "Practical Problems o� Motherhood," by Rev. E. Bishop, secretary of the Child Welfare League, Calgary. Music. Evening session at 8 o'clock: Address by Rev. Bishop on the "Probleni of the Child." Special music. This conference is worth while, come. You can't afford to miss it. On Saturday, Tag Day, for the Child Welfare League, under supervision of the Women's Institute. This is a worthy cause and every one ought to give liberally. In the Dominion of Canada 35,000 children, under 5 years of age, died, most of, them from preventable causes. The Dominion of Canada has been at war for over three years .and in that time her losses by death have been 30,000 men. Thus, it is a more dangerous thing to be a bib? in a Canadian cradle than it is to be a Canadian soldier at the front. In Albert a alone 1,500 children died last year, many of whom could have been saved. Support this scheme to save our babies next Saturday, Tag Day Our School Problem Many citizens have been wondering and complaining about delay, in regard to proposed additional .school rooms. We might, offer .the following: explanations: The trustees after careful investigation discovered that the proposed additions would cost/more than anticipated, and ' the' $10,000 de-. bentnres called for would not be sufficient, to complete the contract, hence It became necessary to call for debentures- amounting to $15,000. Thus the delay In the building operations. Indications at the present time are that the two pT-TJposed rooms would only meet immediate demands. Inside of one year another room would be required to keep up with the rapid growth of the scnool, In view of this fact a number of ratepayers contend that to go ah'fead with the present proposed scheme would be unwise. Therefore it;has been deemed advisable ,to call a meeting of-ratepayers of the Champion Consolidated School District- in the near future when a, feasible 'plan would be suggested which would meet. tKe "problem of school accommodations for all time. The new plan is to put up a separate building that would not only meet present demands but also all future requirements, completing three rooms on the ground floor, leaving the rest to be completed when required. This plan would eliminate the necessity of tearing down work already done, and at the same time save unnecessary expense of remodelling the old building. Meeting Announced Later Every ratepayer will be expected to put in' an appearance at this meeting, even if you have never appeared before, and you who are contemplating doing a whole lot of kicking, don't fail to be present and do your kicking at this meeting.
