BM- *L.- Sports A Word From the Wise By JACK GUENTHER li; , United Press Staff Corresiwnienl -NEW YORK, May 21. .—, The best dressed and possibly the, ,best versed of the college coaches peered through his pince-nez into, the future today and there detected a subtle but definite link .between the strategy of the battlefield and that of the gridiron. The war, predicted Lou Little, will substantially alter the tactics and psychology of football. Primarily, the balance of power will shift to the offense. • People Offense-Minded An old warrior himself—he served as a captain in World War I—the sage of Morningside Heights explains his contention simply. In the past .six months, he emphasizes, people have become offense minded. Individual exploits and daring have been stressed everywhere. Boys—particularly—are thinking in- terms of Commandos, pursuit pilots and parachutists. These thoughts will be translated into action on the football fields of the nation this Fall. Professor Little believes that the pace of the game will be stepped up and that .many of the safe, Conservative measures favored in the past, will be temporarily scrapped. Instead of playing them close to the vest, the boys will be more inclined to get out. and gamble,.

Making his own pace from the gun and winning by a half a lap, Dixon of St. Francis Prep turned in a 4:22.6, only 1.3 seconds slower than the national scholastic established by Lou Zamperini as a southern ; .California schoolboy from former Lightweight Champion L.?w J/jnkins after being knocked down twice.

II!., in 1922. It molded my. entire life. It was a full, brassie on the 18th hole.. I wanted to play it safe. My caddie said go for it, and I did. It was right on the button and gave me my first National Open championship. My 72-hole score was 288, one better than Bobby Jones and John Black. The spoon shot for a double eagle, in. the.Augusta Masters', of which so much has been written, was. purely luck. My finish .at Caliente Open in 1930 for .a $10,000 .prize, was., not luck. I .shot the last four holes in.,three .birdies and a. par. I needed the dough. Remember old demon margin call? '.Only an Average Night's Job BOSTON (UP)—A pin boy setting up 45 games each in two bowling alleys for an average night's work lifts the equivalent of one ton 13 feet in the air, according to a Massachusetts State College statistician.

"Just consider the airplane, .You can't look at the sky, a movie, a book or a paper without seeing an airplane. "Naturally the boys have become highly conscious of airplanes. How will it affect them? Why, it will inspire them to throw more and more forward passes. I'd guess that they .will throw maybe 25 .per cent more passes. They wouldn't be quite human if they didn't, for the sky has taken on a new meanin to them as it has to us. It is certain to influence them." . . Defensive Maneuvers Passe Next, consider the progress, of the war. Little intimated.

The key word of the war has be- con™, attack. ...... , .. , Arid Little believes that;the key word of football will be attack. He isn't saying that .coaches will just give the boys a ball and tell them to toss it wildly. But he does think that the stress on rock-ribbed tackles and stone-wall guards will be relaxed gradually. Not that the center buck or the off-tackle-smash will be abandoned; they will be used less frequently. The accent will be switched to daring, to deception and to individual brain work. -A .tie will no longer be a moral victory. It will be a defeat.
