Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 24, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 1918 The Sport Page BASEBALL If old Jupiter Pluv., who has been conspicuous by his absence throughout the summer," will only hold off his September snow storm and brighten up a little for tomorrow, the local Intermediates expect to have a big holiday crowd out on Wednesday afternoon for-the doubleheader with the Calgary Intermediates. The Calgary bunch is a strong aggregation and have held their own on many occasions during the summer with senior teams and the locals have _ their work cut out for them to win, but. with Ridpath and Pren-dergast to do the slab work the homebrews expect to be able to put up^a good argument at every turn of the games. The start will be at 2:30 and the two games -will be played without a break \ so that the spectators should see ,;a great afternoon's sport. Come : along and encourage the Intermediates who in a coupte of .years -s.will compose the first line of .shock troops in local baseball cir-,:�hss. I Owing to an error in informa-; tion it was stated yesterday that -' Taber and Lethbridge Interme-*diates clashed Saturday. .It was _ Macleod instead, and Macleod won 5-2. CHANCE! GO AFTER THE HELL DIVER Call It By Its French Name and It Isn't Half so Bad Local nimrods have been grievously ! disappointed, over the small bags o� duck taken so far this year. Shooting in the big lakes near Lethbridge lias not been good as compared with other years, and the expense of ammunition and gas lias been altogether out of proportion to the value of. the ducks brought in. Further south the results have been better, and with the advent of the wild geese soon, and the opening of the chicken season a week from toJay better results may be reported. However, if local hunters want to try a new one they should go after the mud .hens or helLdivers. At least that is the advice given by an American game warden in Sunday's Spokesman-Review. He says: Joe Stingle, state game warden, maintains that mudhens are good food, but he adds the warning that hunters guard against the wanton waste and destruction of birds. auto tires OF ALL SIZES vulcanized By the Famous Haywood System RE-TREADING *.

They are easy to skin, but the process removes the rich and valuable fat. so is to be condemned, as all such fat should be made useful. 'Believing that 'conservation' means making use' of every valuable food product the migratory bird treaty act and regulations has placed them in the samo class as other waterfowl aud the season opens on them in eastern Washington counties on the same dates as ducks, geese, etc., which is September 16 to December 31, both dates inclusive, with a bag limit of 20 a day or 20 a week and 30 in possession at any one time. Ou account of the presence of so great a supply of more choice wildfowl thus far has failed to find general recognition in the state of Washington and other states. "Sportsmen should not become disconsolate if the upland game bird shooting in their particular locality is poor this season of the year, for, if we have the proper amount of raiu during the next three weeks the duck shooting will probably be the best they have had in years. Lots of birds have been reared in the far north this season, and if there is water every lake, river and pond hole will be full of ducks before the end of November."

Points Patriotic Duty "The using of all perishable and better acquaintances with every novel food product has become a patriotic duty wherein all may render aid of daily yalne. Realizing that only through wjde publicity could the people be made familiar with many good foods that annually go to waste the commission has been stimulating all possible for use of birds that most hunters throw away, a thing for which there can be no excuse, as if not worth using why kill or waste costly ammunition that could serve better purpose. "The worst thing about the 'coot' better known to the hUDter as 'mud-hen.' is its name and the prejudice that this has built up against it. Give a dog a bad name has proved a Bombardier, on Harvest Leave And who do you think is visiting in Lethbridge? None other than Bomba-dier Ross of the 78th Depot Battery, Petawawa, better known to the fistic fans of this city as Young Al Ross, claimant of the middleweight championship of Canada. Young Ro3s is oft on harvest leave and has' been so engaged at his home at Purple Springs, but will be leaving shortly again for his training camp. Military life agrees to have appeared with the Lethbridge boxer who has taken on weight so that the 158 pound mark looks mighty small. Al must -weigh in the neighborhood of 190 pounds and is as hard as nails. He should be able to give even Jess Willard a go in his present condition. The idol of the Lethbridge fans has had one big scrap since he left here, gaining a ten-round decision at Camp Petawawa from Jack Clements, a boxer who has mixed it with Billy Miske and some of the best in the middleweight division in the west. There is a possibility that Bomba- its truth. As a matter of fact there jtlier Ross ,,,ay be back'in Calgary for is nothing new in the use of mud-hens. In some states and before they were put on the protected list and classed as a game bird leading hotels have served them as 'water chicken' and 'tule hens' for years. French Name Helps "Mudhens are perhaps better relished by their French name, which is more truly descriptive of their h'abits, as they are a water bird rather than a mud frequenter. Their diet is identical with that of ducks and in dry the winter, though this is not certain There are only about 30 of the boys of the battery who were left when harvest leave was taken by the remainder of the unit, and these have since gone over in a draft. Just what will be" done with, the remainder of the boys when they return to camp it is hard to tell. MAJORS DRAFT ONLY SEVEN PLAYERS IN 1918 Cincinnati.-Drafts for this season New York. Sept. 2t.-Although there is already 'considerable talk about the reconstruction of baseball after the war, it is doubtful if either English critics or fans will be permitted to inject methods or theories now being advanced. There is no doubt that the game is rapidly gaining popularity among the younger geueration of Englishmen, both at home and back of the trenches, but the average critic still clings to cricket and would combine certain features of that game with baseball. In a lengthy article on the American sport recently published in one of the most prominent magazines the writer laments that the "foul" o� baseball should be absolutely wasted so far as run production is concerned. He would have this particular feature of the play advanced to the same point of importance that the "snick" occupies in cricket. . The author presents his case as follows: "Snick" Stroke is Spectacular "The snick or corner stroke is undoubtedly the most "spectacular hit in baseball; indeed, it is practically the only spectacular stroke, except the hit out of the ground, which occurs once in a blue moon. "It seems a very great pity that this 'corner stroke' is merely thrown away in baseball. In making the stroke the batsman hits as usual with a horizontal bat, and, getting just under the ball, sends it at a very great pace to a tremendous height behind him, and sometimes to a considerable distance." Would Need 12 Plsyers Big league maguates, with hundreds of thousands of dollars tied up in baseball parks and grandstands, are not likely to receive this implied suggestion with any particular cries of joy. The English critic failed to see the fearful possibilities of his plan. In order to make the "foul" a run-producer it would be necessary to provide a playing field back of the home plate. This would mean the moving o'f the grandstand far back of its present position, which would hardly meet with the approval of the fan. Additional fielders wotrid also be required. The new fair territory could hardly be patrolled by less than three rear fielders, who would, of course, have to take a turn at bat. so that in place of nine men on a side the teams would be composed of 12 players. Radical changes have been made in the baseball code from time to time, but it is not likely that the magnates will be able to see their way clear to make this concession even to improve its status abroad. GERMAN "CRISIS" MAY BE BLUFF London, Sept. 23.-Although reports of a German crisis arising from the supposed movement for parlia-mentarization of the government are printed- at greater or less length in the newspapers here and the situation is watched .with mild interest for any possibility it may contain, the whole thing is mostly regarded as merely an integral part of the German "peace offensive." It is recalled that the re-assembling of the reichstag has frequently since the war broke out. been preceded by an outbreak of excited talk in German political circles. This has created a temporary "thundery" atmosphere, during wrhich some revolutionary bombs were predicted, but which has never fallen. The Telegraph, discussing the rumors, says that this is the eighth political "crisis in the cpurse of the war," and adds: "All of them have left things very much as they \vere before." The papers generally ignofe reports editorially, but the view widely taken is expressed bv the Graphic, which describes the discussion- now filling German papers as a "strategem to lure the allies into making peace by depicting Germany as a democracy." The paper believes that the emperor is following the example of some of his predecessors and is gladly playing his part in "the farce which is about to be re-staged with the Centrist majority and the Socialists as joint managers." The inwardness of the move, the paper adds, is that Mathias Erzberg-er hopes, with the help of Philip Scheidemann, the Socialist leader and his followers, to oust Imperial Chancellor von Hertling and secure the centre of the stage as peace makers for Germany. "The .whole movement is clearly preparing the way for a renewal of the notorious reichstag resolution in revised edition in the hope that the allies have forgotten how completely the sham has been exposed." .s.

Pittsburg, Pa.-Harry Greb, Pittsburg middleweight, was badly battered in the last two rounds of his 10-round bout with Billy Miske, St. Paul heavyweight, here after holding the lead during the �' preceding eight rounds. The pugilist from the northwest started a drive in the ninth, nnd his terrific, onslaught overcame the lead the home fighter had gained.

Horace A. Harris, a mine guard, was killed by an unidentified Mexican and in the fighting which followed Americans killed the murderer. PEACE OFFENSIVE London, Sept. 23.-The article by Mathias Erzberger, on a league of nations, just published in Berlin, is looked upon here as -another move in the enemy's peace offensive. "Herr Erzberger," says the Westminster Gazette, "is not a man whom we can trust, but his appearance as an official dove sent out from the Prussian ark is always interesting, if only as an indication of the mood of his masters." The newspaper recalls that last year this Centrist leader represented himself as the author of the famous reichstag resolution, waiving annexations and indemnities, "which were thrown into the scrap heap at Brest-Lltovsk and their associates scattered to the winds, when the March offensive appeared to be developing favorably." Ottawa, Sept. 23.-Five hundred applications for exemption from military service under the "Slackers" treaty have been received from Canadian residents in the United States. Under the terms of the treaty Canadians in the States or Americans in Canada, liable to military service, must either report for duty or claim exemption. In the case of Canadians resident in the States, claims for exemption are forwarded to the British embassy in Washington and then passed on here, where they are examined by the military council. Mr. Loran-ger, head of this department of the council, is adjudicating on the claims at the instance of the British embassy. From claims so far examined, it is expected that perhaps 50 per cent, will be granted. Int he main, the procedure follows that of exemption tribunals established in Canada under the military service. Winnipeg, Sept. 23.-Effective today until further notice, the board of grain supersisors for Canada ordero that seed outs requirements by the Canada sood purchasing commission shall be provided as follows: The commission -will accept'. oats .suitable.for seed at Canadian government terminal elevators, Moosb Jaw, Saskatoon, and Calgary, and shipped from any potnttwost of Winnipeg and will pay for seed oats a premium ot five cents a bushel over Fort William price, basis Fort William freights, the price to be determined on inspection date.
