'Coffin Corner' Specialist .Ability lo Place Long '•- Boots Plays Important ,- n . Part on Gridiron. -'•' ' BY BtLI, SI'AULDlN'ft. University of California nt ' '•- Los Anjfles "; I.OS ANGELES, Oct. 10.--Look-"in^ back over ihi' records of l:ist •season, I find Hint about CO per , cent of liie close gamps were won .lo^'lost through errors in ^ottiiu; off punts. ••; Good punting comes from prccls- ' ion on tin 1 pan of ihn kicker as • wt-ll as n number of other things. 'Hi- must get his kicks avay clean. Tlie toe mast be extended or <te- to the proper ftnglf-—'.he- • ball has to be held and tlltod cor- ' redly. If the ball is released from Ihe hands too soon, anything might 1 happen—from a wobby slant (o on.? Side lo a' short high kick or n low one which will bo blocked. A good kicker seldom lakes more tlii>n a step and a half In gettlni; nwny •the punt. : - -Behavior of the forward wall is very important. The line should play fairly tight, with the' rntls out' according to wliat defense nilaht be. uf»U: In caa' the kicker takes more than one or- two'steps and is slow In cettlne his kicks away, the line must hold lonqer before, going down under the kick. If the kicker is a right-fooled kicker, he n«eds more protection en the right side, so thut probably about two blocks will be used on that side and the third back on the left side. These backs must be riig?ed enoueh and clever cnoueli to' withstand any charge on the part of the tackles and ends against the punter. .-Scouts sre sent out to delect weakness In the kicker and In the 'fiViUm of protection that is used for him, so that when a game Ls won by n blocked kick, it is not fihjfftvc the result of ah accident. It often- comos from n well-conceived plan of defense. -.^ » » • The' coach may have various methods of breaking up a kicking game.- He may shift his linemen lo get two. or more men against one' nnd hlock i.he kick, or he may build up',8 "run 'back," 'especially if he has; a- dependable safety man—one vhif is alert and .shifty and has tht abllitv lo take advantage of hu interference..

' .'Some coaches depend on a kicking game almost entirely—coupled with a good defense. The 'late Andy Smith believed in this type of loptball and with good kickers on his squad and a great defensive line, kicked and waited for the breaks. - No matter what type of game Is played, it is necessary that a lot of time be given on getting away kicks. At least an hour or Iwo o week should be expended in prac Uclng on punts. I would say that If a coach had less material than the other" fellows,' he could do no better than to develop two or three good kickers and work up a strong defense -'•.,Tropjfai Garden in Boston BOSTON (OP) — Henry Schu macber, of Rosllndale, has a tropical garden In his wyrd.
