At least that is what Wallace Wade, famous coach of Duke University, tells a coaching school in the Man Building at the World's Fair. "ft doesn't require a deep intellect to carry out an assignment according to the coaches' teaching," says the old Brown Blue who has taught the gridiron game with such great success in Dixie. "What well-coached, alert players hiive," Wade points out, "is poise." In his opinion, when a player is referred to as "smart," he is stressing "poise," not mental effort. Wade tolls the coaches that the most difficult thing to teach a football player is to keep his feet. The Durham strategist points out that most players fall down because when oil defense they are off balance most of the lime. So he tells the student-coaches that the first knowledge to instill in players is to stay on their pins. Charley Brickley, immortal Harvard drop-kicker, and his sons, Chic and Bud, put on a remarkable demonstration of drop and place-kicking. Charley Brickley Starts Sons Young; Chic Brickley, 18, the more skillful of the two boys, reveals his dad's formula for developing a drop-kicker and at the same time tells how he obtained his nickname. "My father started to teach me how to kick when I was six months old,' relates Chic. "He would put'a balloon in my crib and tell me to kick it. Ol course, I couldn't speak very well, sine so whenever he said 'kick' I woulc answer 'chic.' When I was six my father drew a circle on the barn wall and wo would practice for hours kicking the ball inside the circle. "I made my best and longest dropkick last fall against Fordham Prep ... 52 yards, and from a pretty bad angle." Chic and Bud, who is 17, graduated from Bronxville High in June and were outstanding members of the school's undefeated eleven. Chic held down fullback and Bud one of the tackles. Chic looks 'm'ore like his father, who once booted five straight field goals in one game to beat Yale 15-0. He weighs 187 pounds and stands just over six feet. Yale to and Two Brickleys Though younger. Bud is much bigger, coming in at 220 pounds and meas- xiring nearly six feet three inches. First the family demonstrated how "easy" it is to drop-kick the ball between the goal posts . . . each monotonously booting the ball between the uprights. But this was old stuff to them and too simple, -so they started to "shoot" for the basket on the court at the other end of the field. None "sank" one, but they plucked the ball against the rim and. backboard. Only the oval shape of the ball prevented it from dropping in for a "basket." Despite the fact that their clad wrote football history at Harvard, Chic and Bud are trying to get into Yale. Bud is first going to Cheshire Academy for a year, but Chic is already making plans to be on the Eli freshman squad this fall. The Yale idea is there because the boys arc determined to climb the ladder of success on their own.
