t'AGE FOUK HOPE STAH, HOPE, ARKANSAS Wednesday, September 6,1930f Dutch Meyer, Famous T. C, I. Grid Coach, Reveals Passing Secrets Free Arm Movement and Proper Temperament Under Pressure Are the Prime Requisite of the Passer By HARRY GRAYSON NKA Service Sports Editor Leo. R. Meyer's advice to coaches in regard to passing is to get rid of their throwers and pitch their pitchers. Free arm movement and proper temperament are the prime requisties of the passer, according to Dutch Meyer, famous coach of Texas Christain University and foremost exponent of the aerial game. The man who turned out Sammy E'augh and Davey O'Brien doesn't care how a boy throws the ball if his arm is loose . . if he has free. easy movements 'If he pushes the ball out there like u woman, you had better forget him,' the Horned Frog drillmaster tells « coaching school in the Man Building of die New York World's Fair. "He may he a fair passer, but he'll never be a good one if he does that. "And I don't want some jitterbug trying tn |jass for me. I want poise under pressure. "In this connection. 1 impress upon llio passer that it is no sin to be thrown t'oi- a loss tryin to get a pass. I teach him. too. the necessity for getting rid of the ball. "When he Ls hemmed in by rushers and no receiver is open, then he can throw the ball into some empty spot beyond the line of scrimage. Someone is Supposed to Be Where Ball is Thromi "Intentionally grounding the pass? Sure it is. but what official is going to call it if the ball crosses the line of scrimmage'.' "I'd be right out there backing up my passer in his argument to the refree that there was supposed to be someone where he threw the ball. "So you see the necessity of getting ! rid of a thrower . . someone who just } blindly heaves the ball away. "We allow the passer to use either his thumb or fingers on the lacing. Most of them prefer the thumb. Put it on the second lace. "The pointing finger is the last to leave the ball. On the follow through it should be pointing where the ball is going. We think that helps indirection and acuracy. "Passers should hold the ball above the waist and out from the chesj. It should not be clutched tightly to the ribs. "The passer should be relaxed until he is ready to shoot. N'o Place for Wind-up Pitchers in Passing 'You _ don't want any wind-up pitchers." The passer should cock the ball behind his ear and let it go quickly with a snap of the wrist like a ba.seball catcher throws to the bases. "The feet should be on the lone of the throw. The helps direction. The passer can fake with the feet toward one spot, but should reset them before letting the .ball go. "Some throw a heavy pass and others, throw just as hard, throw a pass that is easy to catch. "We think this is because of the way in which the nose of the ball is tilted. • "A pass thrown with the nose of the ball do-.vn is the hard one. With the tip of the ball up a little when the pass is thrown, it comes to the receiver easy. "The passer should throw just when the receiver is breaking away from hi.-; coverage, not when he is out in the clear. " rr the passer waits until the re- |T m PICO PIPER OF SHOW BUSINESS | Any Football Team Could Use an Open Field Runner Like This ceiver is out in the clear, the receiver may be covered again by the time the ball gts to him." Pass Receiver Must Be 1111 Accomplished Aclor Meyer has his athletes "bullet" short passes and lob long ones. "Bullets" minimize the possibility of interception and blocking in close quarters. As a receiver. Meyer would rather have a good actor with less speed than fast man who is a poor actor. "Old Man Rockne could teach acting better than anyone in the game." smiles the Fort Worth instructor. "He knew the value of deception. "Get me a good receiver like Don Hutson. the Alabama boy with the Green Bay Packers, and I'll get some guy who can throw at him anyway." Meyer stresses that the adoption of the professional rule permitting puss- ing from anywhere behind the line i curi ty may have on the Polish morale of scrimmage would make collegiate j ;. .liffjcult to estimate but it i.s pro- football wild as hell. j b . lbll _ v th;u u win not be verv ,,,.,,,,( Opponents of Texas Christian have; if it becomes immediately apparent to tor some time been convinced that it is in that state already . . without giving the passing game any further lee- Utho Barnes Joindfj.

These active divisions are • excsl- lent.I yequipped. and supported by 14 brigades of cavalry, tarined not in the spectacular mounted charges of. ancient days, but trained to fight on loot with moren weapons. Of the 30 reserve divisions .about half are from JiO to 90 per cent equip-; ped. the others someyhat less so. In conclusion, it must be borne in mind that even if the Poles lose half their country to the Germans and are driven back to the Vistula they still have the fighting courage that enabled them to drive out the Russians in 1920. when over half of their country \vas lost to the invaders.

Some Polish Needed Although the army is not scattered around in isolated posts to anything like the extent that prevailed in 1916 it .-till remains true that opportunities for training and maneuvering by divisional u.'iits are rare. Assuming that the existing army and National Guard are formed, into ;• striking force of 400,000 men, that force—as the recent maneuvers showed—will not be ready to take the field at once: It will not need as much polishing and improving as did the first units sent overseas in 1917, perhaps, but it will need some. The army has kept pace with overseas armies in the development of scientific war gadgets. Most of these to date, exist in small quantities only, J. I..

The first deals with Arkansas education in general. Other articles will give the entire faculty list of every white school in the county, the opening and closing dates for each school and other matter regarding education. The first story by Mr. Lieblong follows: There are 630.5GO people of school age. that i.s G to 21: of these 162,820 are negroes. Out of the number enumerated only 465,272 are enrolled in school. And out of those enrolled there are 357,812 in average daily attandence. There are 59,852 children enrolled in grades 9-12 and the average daily attendance with this group is 87.1 per cent of the enrollment. 10,887 young people between the ages of 14 and 20 or more graduated Tuesday's Results Chicago 4, Cleveland 2.

These peasant soldiers are well trained in the use of arms and are capably commanded by excellent officers. Poland-Not Helpless in Air Warfare Mass bombing attacks on Polish cities may draw retaliation, as Poland is by no means helpless in the air. though her air force is out numbered four or five to one. It is probably that much of the initial German airjeffort has been against Polish airdromes in order to minimize the possibility of Polish air reprisals against German centers. One great Poli.sh disadvantage, which i.s only partially offset by bad communications, but which will hamper the invaders, is^that western Poland offers no good natural defensive position short of the iVstula. This means that the Polish defense must be a mobile defense, evading pitched battles, Seeking to delay and harrass the invader to protect her vital industrial- centers as much as possible. Along with this, the Poles must, of course, .try to inflict every posible loss upon the Germans, and. above all, to keep the Polish army well organize iduntil Poland's ;>)lie.- can make their efforts fet. When I left Poland on August 17. there were as yul no jjitiru;jtion.s of the Russo-German pact. Anglo- French milita/y conversations were proceeding in Moscow, but the Polish official attitude was that they expected little help from Russia, save perhaps in a supply of raw materials. and even there they felt tluit the available lines of communication might make difficult any deiiondahU; deliveries. The Poles were- firmly set ;ig;iin.M the use of Russian troops on Polish soil, although admitting the desirability of a certain amount of Russian air re-enforcement. Far more important, in their minds, appears what might be termed the 'm.oral security" uffor- ed by having a""friendly Russia at their back. .\loraie Depends on Britain, France What effect thin loss of moral Be- made and ihe educational order system which has been instituted will m it possible for mass production to begin quite rapidly.

Different groups have atk,'mptt'd tn indicate in broadterms the general lanes which should guide American education. None is better known than the fincfings of the commission of the Reorgani/.ation of Secondary Education. It found the cardinal principles of secondary education to be: 1. Health. 2. Command of the fundamental processes. ;i. Worthy home membership. 4. Vocational cf- j'iciency. S. . Gixxl citizenship. G. Worthy KM/ of leisure. 7. Ethical character! Cubberley in his book, the Principal and His School, sums up by stating: "The real purpose in education, aside from the learning of a few facts and the mastery of certain abilities that are found to bp of use in later life, is to train young people how to analyze a problem and find out things for the'imelves; to form in them good working habits; to show them how to concentrate attention and to study effectively and independently; to teach them how to gather facts and marshal them to form a conclusion; and to awaken in them motives for work beyond what the school requires." Cue of the main functions of the .school is to help develop or build personality. It is not something that are 3856 enrolled in the elementary 3«s» happens. Personality is built bit grades and 1400 in high school. i by bit as a There are 142 superintendents and 123 ! -stone upon supervisors and principals; there arj 12,738 teachers, and 3047 clerks, janitors, bus drivers, etc. A total of 11J.050 employes then, tn be paid front public school funds.

Of the 4738 school buildings in the state there are 2667 with one room only, 276 with ten or more rooms and the rest of them range in size from two to nine. Education raises persons above their surroundings and makes them inastors of themselves, rather than merely being creatures of circumstance It great monument is built, stone. Every act. every thought, every desire has its place in the shaping of personality, just as each scrap of masonry makes its contribution to the final structure and strength of a building. As soon as the infant learns to focus its eyes so that it can clearly distinguish an object, its education is in progress—yes, even before that, for it gets much information about the outside world from its ability to feel. Today we see teh parent focusing attention on the pre-school child. Nursery schools are springing up everywhere. Their function is to aid the mother in giving the child the best that science lias to fofer so far. in the way of ;: good start in life. Self-reliance, independence, creative-ness, ability to get along with others, and self-control are among the character traits which | the nursery school today attempts to ! instill in the child of from eighteen' months to four years. j A pro-school check-up is desirable j to ascertain if the child i.s physically j ready for school.

'• Hard Going for French ' PABIS France —i/T>)— The Jefl wing of the French army Tuesday increased the pressure on the northern flank of the German forces along a 10 mile front. Army communique No. -1 Tuesday said simply. "Our troops are in in contact every- I where along the frontier between Ihe Rhine and the Moselle. It i.s recalled j i that on the Rhino permanent fortifi- ( 1 cations border the river here and | there." [ This 100-inilc frontier, where the | j French Maginot line faces the Na/.i Siegfried line al some places a little more than a stone's throw distant, forms the northern flank of the German line. This German line makes a sharp; bend in ihe vicinity of Kalsrube, Germany, where the French frontier' juls out into u point forming the' northeastern ::cornor" of France. The! line follows ihe Rhine south to Swit- i xerland. The main attack was to the southward, where the Burgundy gate passage between Vosges and the leads to the German Black Forest. Here apparently was concentrated an artillery barrage.
