That he participated in the recent drive made by the Canadians is quite evident from the date on which it is officially stated he was slain in battle. He was always well liked by the hockey fans in Calgary, and the news of his death in-action will come as a great shock. Came West in 1913 Deceased, who was. born in Alliston, Ont., 28 years ago, came to Calgary in 1913, and was a member of the East End Vies when that speedy septette made such a remarkable showing in the City Hockey League. He was em; ployed with the Hudson's Bay Co-, for more than a year, and after that ho was employed by the John Irwin Grocery tor two years. After that, Private Steele went to-Carmangay and was employed in the Peacock general store from July, 1916, until January, 1918, when he was called into barracks for military training. While in Calgary he lived with his sister, Mrs. Duncan MacLean, at 82.8 Third Avenue, Sun-nyside. The work of Fred Steele on the defence of any hockey team was a feature in itself. He was a hill of strength when he came to breaking up attacks, and his spectacular rushes were always a treat to watch in a game. He held a splendid average, with the Retailers last winter, and he was always looked upon as a clean and honorable � sport. The sympathy of the sporting fraternity of Calgary is extended to his sister and aged parents who are living in the east.- (Calgary Herald.) - WALTER JOHNSON HURLED FIFTEEN Athletics Were Only team Wasn't Able to Beat In Extra Innings He BOXING GOS3IP ' Now they're telling one on Fred Fulton, or rather on Mike Collins, Fred's manager, : which shows with what confidence Dempsey entered the ring againstiFulton'Over Jersey-way recently.

"I have tried my best to get over there to do my bit," he said, "but every time 1 applied they told me that a man of my age could never stand the strain incident to war work.

"THE HOUSE OF SERVICE" When Walter Johnson gets into an essential'occupation his salary should be a large one, since he is a glutton for working overtime and stands in a class by himself among the American league pitchers this year in forcing his way into extra-inning games. He has been the responsible party in 15 over-time games. Johnson pitched extra-inning games during 191S"in every spot on the younger circuit save Boston and his 15 extra-inning games this year, seven have been pitched at home, two in Chicago, two in Detroit, one in Cleveland, one in Philadelphia, one in St. Louis and one in New York. In his collection of extra-period affairs are three games of ten innings, four ot 11, two of 12, one of 13, one of 14, one of 16, one of 16 and two of 18. The "Fire Ball King" started nine of the excess round affairs in which he has been entangled and finished six for other parties. When Johnson was going it alone he copped six long battles and lost three; when he was helping out others he landed two controversies and let four escape. The one team Johnson was ' not able to abate this season after a game got beyond the ninth was Philadelphia. He dropped an 11-inning fray to the Mackmen on May 4, 1 to 0, Scott Perry, cause of a good many of baseball's big troubles this year, stacking up against him. Harry Harper started this battle. Every other American league club Johnson has vbeaten at least once in extra innings this year and two clubs -Chicago and St. Louis-he has beaten twice. The Browns have not taken an additional period away from Sir Walter, Detroit winning two battles that went past the ninth and the other clubs one. The only pitcher whose record nearly approaches Johnson'B in regard to extra-inning games figured in is Stanley Covaleskie of Cleveland. He was in nine games that have given the fans more than they pafrt to see, winning a 19-inning conflict and games that lasted 12 and 11 sessions and losing all the others. George Mogridge of the Yankees, has gone on working eight times after the ninth inning whistle has blown. He had the misfortune to oppose Covaleskie when the Yankees and the Indians played two full games and one inning of another before reaching a decision and he also went down to defeat in a 15-round fracas. The port-sider's record in extra-inning games is four wins and four losses. Jim Bagby 6� Ireland has won HEROES AND HEROES The world's baseball series this year produced no heroes.
