Road To Chuini)ionslrip /.s Far From Sporting Now Ihiil (lie Olympic Games victors have liccn duly eheeral, hcmcilal- cil, and bnii(|iiclt'<l, it miijlU be a good' lliing for us lo (iovulo ii lilllo tiniu lo the-question, What does the amn- lenr 'sports champion goi, out of it all, anyway ? IJo gets medals, of course, and headlines, and .sometimes he is able to jvet a fair living out of iU-iis long ;\s Ills legs hold up. Hul he generally has lo pay a gooil 'deal for these things, and h'e must sometimes wonder if they •are worth all they' coal. To be .superlatively good at anything, you have to devote your life lo it—whether it be aUilelics, music, crime detection, or the making of terra cbfia biisis. The champion has to vorlc at his .jol) cviM'lasUiijjly; he has io eat and ~.s!ce|j his tailing, so to speak, between all pcrfonmiijhes. There arc callings in whicli the result is infinitely worth the pricu--and there are fallings in which it is not. A youngster who call swim, or rim, or jump, or heave a 16-pound ball of lead faster and farther than anybody else docs not get thai way solely through the bounty of nature. lie must have (he gift to begin with, of course, but unless he works like a trooper to develop and perfect it, he will never get his picture in the papers. This \\iiler recently saw a junior swimming meet, A young lady of some H summers jiltt on a truly marvelous display of accMiatic prowess. People who watched her said: ''Ah theie goes, a future Olympic chain-, pion." Well, that is what the young lady's mother thinks, too. She has thought so for a long time—and, as a result, this girl 'has averaged 2 1-2 hours' practice in the pool every day for several years. Some day, possibly, she will be an Olympic champion, and we all will know her name and her contours very well indeed; and we can only hope that she will then feel repaid'for all those hours of practice. Out- own private lluiich is thnjt some day she will decide that she was sold down the river for the sake of a little fame; and when she makes that decision her doting mother will not be a lady to be envied. At any rate, this swimmer is a BLYTHEV1LLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS OUT OUR WAY sampld case—a cross-section, HO to speak, of the amateur champion as a child. And the way she is driven to sport, as u slave is driven to the mines, is an indication that somd Ihing is profoundly wrong with our whole conception of sport. Sport is supposed to be a means of recreation, of relaxation. You go down to the corner to bowl, or out in the country to play golf, or over into the vacant lot lo tuck inlo a bit of softball, because you get a kick out of it. That's all sport is—except, of course, for the professionals. I5y glorifying the champions, we turn sport from fun inlo hard work. Ami il is the very i-hampion whom we glorify who is apt lo sulfor most of ail. Doubly Certain, of Death Development of a new revolver with more Ihan twice the sinking liower of (ho .siawlard weapon pro- lienls a pressing problem. - For many years efforts have been made to restrict sales of revolvers and pistols, which may be obtained even Ijy mail in some cases. This new gun, liring a .375 calibru • bullet, will drill through an engine-block or strike with a terrific force of more than 800 pounds. It is a weapon far more terrible than those against which prev- viouii clfoiis al control have been aimed. Such weapon in "the hands of either police or criminals might kill twice as many innocent byslandcrs as the present ones in the course of those miming street battles which are nil too common. Manufacture and sale of so deadly a weapon can scarcely be considered » . matter of purely private concern. It calls for regulation of (he most stringent sorf. The. Hay Fever Vole.

One Cleveland paper enthuses that so long as a single ragweed stands within the city limits, there is no 'irguing that (here is no useful work for \VPA employes. .But Hie suggestion also is made that this is just a barefaced attempt to get the hay fever vote.

A sprain is not ai serious as a broken bone, but i- wlll |!ivc a great deal of trouble If not suitably cared for. The joints most frequently concerned arc those of ankles, knees, shoul- dcre and finders. The first stop is to protect the lissies. against damage, and to Rive Ilicin adequate support. For Ihis purpose adhesive tape is woven about the joint in a basket weave. ' Football players may uc protected agniiul sprains by wearing shoulder parts and hy strapping the knees with adhesive taps before Ihc game. When a sprain occurs in any joint, the joint should be packed promptly in ice until the swelling Is under control. Then It may be fastened firmly with adhesive tape or bandage. ; ' ', A foreign specialist has worked out a method of injecting a local anesthetic into Ihc tissues. This fcccps Ihe pain under control nnd permits use of the tissues, suitably protected, much sooner than could occur otherwise. * • • Among Ihe most frequent minor injuries affecting athletes arc lacerations, cuts, scratches and similar wounds of the skin. These are especially important, because of Ihc. danger of secondary tn ~ fcclion. '••'••.

"If I was you, and I happened to see a light in those parts, I'd sure wail unlil morning. Folks say old man Hardison's ghosl—" The baldhcaded man's warning was lost in the sudden roar of Ihe old car.
