(UP) — The trouble.? of a man with n maid, trying lo explain lo her the difference between n forward pass, a drop-kick and an end run, now Imvc some Inlet-national complications. There was a lime when explaining football plays lo lhe weaker sex was purely an American headache. But lhe 01 Joes have taken the gridiron overseas 'with them.- So, here Is an account of an American Army versus Navy frat- ball game played in Britain as seen through the eyes of an English girl, a reporter for a London newspaper. First off, the girl - reporter, Vivien Bachelor, says her first impression v Is that Americans must love to fight, they even do It for fun. .' Vivien soon solved lhe main Idea of the game. She says it's obvious that the instinct of self-prcscrva- lion progresses the game toward the goal line. As she sees it, -Ihc player with the ball rushes madly toward tho goal in an effort to save his life and limb. Vivien got a bit of a shudtjer out, of the program. She saw the [ names of Ihe 11 players on each side. Then she saw the names of the substitutes—15 for each learn. That, coupled with a stretcher and n doctor with a black tag on the sldef/nes added up to mayhemr Then there was the walerboy. Vivien says the was ft bit puzzled by his heartless attitude. Every- litne somebody was knocked out on Ihc field, the waterboy ran in with Ills buckets, »ot lo the man who was injured, but nil the other players who had, as she puts it, survived the struggle. And finally, of course, there was Ihc matter of football terminology. Vivien reports that after one particular play, when there was a terrific .pile-up of players, she heard somebody yell "He got smeared." • And Vivien reports very solemnly, "He certainlyVdid." Next Olympic Open To Japs Germans German athletes will be Wlcomed." "Race and nationality are not barriers In the Olympic Games. After the last war, spectators did not look upon athletes of Germany as men who had started a war against us but considered them as individuals and respected them for theli abilities." : Both Fischer and Avery Brundage, association member and head of the AAU Olympic committee are optimistic about the part athletics will play In healing International relationship wounds after the war. The two sports authorities believe the renewal of the Olympics probably will take place In either Finland or England with most current reports favoring England. Bruridage says:-"Among the athletes who participate in the Olympics there lias always been a mutual admiration and respect We hope eventually, as a collateral purpose, to gradually eliminate through sports the animosity between nations." / Doth Brundagc and Fischer believe that athletics will spring into new prominence in the post-war world. o They believe the German and Japanese athletes will be accepted in international competition at about the same time that their countries are accepted politically or economically. Fischer points out that amateur sports have continued to thrive In France apd other German-occupied countries and he feels that this In- ,dlcates a quick renewal of'interest (In international competition, Along that line the Central American, and Far Eastern Games are already in existence and the Pan- American Games. are scheduled to make a belated post-war appearance. That's the reason why both Brundage and Fischer predict that sports will have a prominent place in the development of cordial relations in a world weary of war.
