"When they are- trying to win they'll study form and im. prove themselves to n remarkable degree." But yon. must be able to dropkick yourself 'to get hoys to follow you, the old Crimson luminary warned. "I walk np to a gathering of boys and am introduced as Charley Brickley. [he great drop-kicker. The kids look nsknnce. The name doesn't mean a thing to them. "So I slart drop-kicking. I kick 10. 20. 30. 40, maybe 50 goals in a row from 20 yards or so, nnd have them watching open-mouthed and ea»cr. It's all in showing them. You have to prove to them that you have Ihe goods." A Chip, of the Old Block Brickley's most apt pupil is his son. Charley Brickley. Jr.. familiarly known as Chickie. Fourteen years oid and wiry and bright- eyed like his father. Chickie has been kicking since he was six, and studies ihe technique with the air ":' an expert.

Dismissal of the class brings a rush, for the showers (separate showers for each sex, in this building), and before you could say "Gymnosophlcal Association" there are pink bodies flashing in the big, tiled pool. Everyone knows how to swim, because the physical Instructor gives lessons. But there do not seem to be any swimming or diving stars, and anyway the clubs frown on anything that in the least smacks of exhibitionism.
