True, they succeeded in keeping a lead of two goals for 60 minutes, but no one who saw Saturday's game will deny, Calgary's claim to a division of. goals, for during the latter stages of the game, they displayed such a fine knowledge of football that bad they been beateu, it would have beeu hard luck. Each aud everyone of the borne supporters was at fever heat as the home players scored first one goal and then two, and loud were the cries, "Make it three." But such was not to be, although had Ltnuing's shot been six inches lower, three !t must have been. It was a very noticeable fact that during the second half of the game the Calgary players adopted tho Ions passing game, whether by accident or design, one cannot say. But it was this that stood ithem in good stead, as the game they played la the first half just suited our defence, they being ablt; to intercept the short passing. Much has been said regarding a protest by the two teams, but whereas Calgary did protest on the grounds that "this not being a boiia fide team the Overseas -Interviewing Secretary "Westley, he states that all those players who had played in Saturday's game were fully registered when the entrance money was scut to Calgary. So, had Lethbridge won. they would have had no fear as to the outcome as to the protest. The rules of the "Bennett Shield Competition" say: Should a game be drawn, ten minutes extra each way to be played. i 'By some unfortunate oversight none seemed to thinlc of this till after the teams had left the field, although th'ere were cries from the grandstand of "overtime." As the Calgary boys had left for their hotel they could hardly he ex- pected to return to play extra time aud to use Referee QUIT'S words, "You don't expect me to go and get them back, when I don't know anything about any extra time." Had the captains, been notified of this rule at half time, and theii had Calgary refused to play, they would have had to come here again, but as things are. the-LeUibridgo boys will have to go to Calgary.

Williams kicked nft for them, who immediately pressed, Pat- terson relieving with a huge kick. Lethbridge soon got themselves into the picture, Thompson beating Petrie and McLean, shooting, however, very wide. Lining obtained possession aud fooling the gave to his partner, who took the bi on the run, his centre -being kicked away by Cooper. It goou became ap- parent that Lethbridge were not going to be easy picking, as was the gen- eral opinion, for each man on the OSCAR WASEM ATTEMPTED GREAT FEAT AT CARDSTON BUT LOST OUT Took on Town's Four Best Wrestlers and Tried to Throw Them in Away With Two, Drew with Third and Lost to Fourth Cardston, Sept.

Wasem had wrest- led three men before taking on Pill- ing, he having stepped In .lack Elli- son's boots at the eleventh hour and challenged any six men in Southern Alberta. His challenge was accepted by four local men, and .Toe McClaughliu, a professional, went on first. The bout with McClaugliliu was an -excellent exhibition of the game, and afforded much amusement for the crowd. He j was put to the mat on a toe hold after eight minutes of fierce wrestling. Mo Chinyhim is a good Ulan. Jack Ellisou then stepped onto the mat, and the referee, .Martin Woolf, M.P.P., called time. Wasem was cer- tainly after Ellison's goat, aud the thought he could get it with ease. But the lad proved good, and couldn't be thrown, lie was always on the defensive, ami called forth some very ioiid rebukes from the referee for working one of the ring in -the tight places. Ellison's tactics were plainly to kill time, and get the when the hour was up. In this, however, he lost out, for at the expiration of tho hour the bout was not called off, so Jack pulled out sore. The agreement really was that Wasem would throw six men, the two professionals Included, In no np'eelliod time. Will Austin -was tho next man to i face AVasem, and this bout was sharp and Quick. Austin was put to the mat after ten minutes of good, quick work. Pilling Throws Wasem It now looked rosy for Wasem, and when Pilling jumped on the mat no one expected that he wo-jld start any- thing really interesting. But he did much to the chagrin of the heavy- weight. He threw Wasem in eight short minutes and won th-e purse. j Wasem Was Tired In justice to Oscar Wasem it 'must be-said that he was plainly tired when he started the 'bout with Pill- ing, and Pilling Jg a grappler of some class. Wasem will likely issue a challenge to meet any man in the south Immediately, and it is thought that Jack Ellison will accept. Elli- son certainly had the big man baffled and ihe outcome or -a bout between them would be very uncertain. There was an interesting; prelimin- ary between Blackburn and Low, two promising Cardston boys. They ing over when well placed. Give and take play ensued for a while, but Par- ker obtained possession, and passing to Lining, who in turn passed to Ten- nant, that player tricking three of the Calgary men and shooting, completed beating Gilhooley and scoring aftei 13 minutes' play. This reverse seem ed to have a salutary effect on the Calgary players, for everyone seemei to realize that things were not going their accustomed way. The Leth bridge bunch evidently were of same opinion that if they got one goiii they eOulu obtain auothffr, for such proved the case, and in practic- ally the same manner. Teunant was again given possession and with a great shot "beat Gilhooley all ends up The Calgary team shouted offside hut Referee Gurr said aud so after 26 minutes' play Lethbridge was two up. Try as they would Calgary could, not make any headway against the stalwart defence of the home boys, the halves and backs playing finely. Williams had one chance but his shot went by. The left wing of the home team again got going and Pctrle, Strang and McLeaii had to use all their Knowledge of football to keep Lining from scoring, his shot just skimming the bar. From the kickoff Caudwell got possession and beating two men, raced the 'ball three parts the length of the field, centreing, only to see Gilhooley save Thompson's shot. Half time arrived with the score Lethbridge 2; Calgary 0, Second Half The ten minutes that was taken for the interval seemed to be the down- fall of L-ethbridge; either they relied on their lead of 2 goals or they were all in, for directly on the commence- inent .of the second half It was quite evident "that a different talc would bo told before the finish. Calgary started with a dash ami during the whole of this half display- ed football as was expected of them. After ten minutes had gone the home side seemed completely demoralized, and with the exception of Lining, Ten- nant and Parker they could do noth- j ing right. Catgjiry seemed 10 notice this too, for they .started a bombard- ment of the home goal, their shooting, however, being very erratic. Had Patterson not been in his test ioil and had to be led off the field, Calgary finishing with ten men. This mlsforluno'would have down- hearted many teams, but not BO with Calgary, each player striving for all he was worth, .They'were soon re- warded, Grindley again scoring, giving Surnner no chance. It became quite evident that the Loth bridge boys had lost all chance of winning, the de- fence being tried to- its utmost 'to keep tlte Calgary forwards In check, but not before Strang had had a shot at goal, only to find Sumner saving brilliantly. After a few more kicks by tho home fcacks the game ended as stated, The Teams The teams lined up as follows: Cooper and McLean, Haig, Strang and Petrie; Towill, Nesbitt, -William's', Grindley and Wilson. Lethbridge: Sumner; Patterson and Home; Caudwell, White and WHIets; Jreniiaii. Thompson, Parker, Lining and Tennant. The Replay The-replay will take place In Cnl- jary at a date to be decided on by the committee. The players will, however, have to get to special train- ing, that is "if they 'wish to go any further in the Bennett Shield. Of the Calgary boys, nothing need be said, except in the first half they played like a junior team, and In the second half as we know them, the iu- vtncfble Callies. -The gate amounted to 373.15. Jimmle Gurr gave entire satisfac- tion as referee. CETHBRIDGE Grain prices on tho local market today continue to show a de- cline, while dalVy butter lias soared to 30 cents per Ib.

Given another year or so, and a little more weight, it is quite certajn be will be snapped up by one of the big teams In the Old Country.
