The moat lax methods reepect- ng knowledge of the rule* obtains among the school teams. Often boys playing th* tam« on school teama do not know the fundamental* of the game. Thfc is prl- i marily the fault of the coach, who selflom nststs that the candidate! take a rule aook and study the code from beginning o end. As a rule, the coach take* It for granted that the candidates will apply themselves to a study of the rulee without osltive direction to do so. This applies oth to school and college players. Only aat year it was demonstrated that the Princeton team did not know the rule*, or t least did not *ixe up a situation which a Quick interpretation of the code would have dona, The Orange and Black player* permitted a Tale kick-off to bounce along the ground without opposition and no attempt attempt to »top it. on the auppoaltlon that it belonged to Tale under all condition* until touched by one of it* men.

When Dobie took the Naval academy team and sent It into a scoring record of 307 points in four games, people forgot the fact that hie team had lost a game qaflier ill the season They simply remerabeif d he had showed the eaut some western football speed and were willing to admit his class. Dobie resembles Connie Mack, both in method and the results obtained. Dressed in funereal black, tall and solemn, he stales up and down the football field while his team is in action. He doesn't talk much, but he does a lot of thinking. Speaking of his methods recentlj with eastern cities he said. "There are four cardinal points to making a football team, and those are the points, niy team must leant) before I will consent to their calling themselves football players.

"Now it is the story of Albert Bemud of New Jersej, who is home from the fighting front on a short furlough. Beraud was a quarter and a half-mile runner on the track team of St. Peter's college when the war broke out. He -was of French descent, as his name suggests. He was a tall youngster, strongly built, smooth faced, smiling. He passed thru such adventures aa come to.only one man in millions--.«uch dfspcrate fls-lufntr as . ial distinctions. He was one of the only three private ·oldler* in France who are of the Legion of Honor. He U the only American soldier so decorated. Ono or two other American* have received the Legion of Honor decoration* but not for dating on the battle field; merely for firing the French a -few million dollars to help them win the war. So Albert Beraud'* decoration* are unique. Beraud went to France two years ago and eaU*ted In the Colonial regiment. marine* of Morocco. That regiment *has a war record that i* worth passing mention. In a", aince the beginning of the war, W.OOO men have been on its muster rolls. Imagine what that means i in some desperate desperate battles It has lost »0 per cent of t* entire strength In killed, wounded or miaslng. Of the original muster roll only Ive men are left Beraud waa not one of he five of course. He didn't go over to France until about a year after the be- flnnlng of the war.
