The local boys have the football on the enemy's four-yard line, with one down to make goal. The ball is snapped, the back plunges over the line, and the fans cheer for dear •ot<l Hambonc. ' But even as the cheer resounds, a .figure out in front starts gym- ing, his motions rese)nuling those 'of :a whirling dcrvbh. who has turned cheer leader. The ball l.s brougli't back, and the fair co-ed ;next to you sighs, "Oh, shucks what're they .doing that for?" • Possibly you are a bit puzzled, too, Looie.

They . are either delivered • directly to the stands or through a -relay man on the sidelines. This season new football rules make it harder than ever to follow a football game intelligently. To do this you must know what Identities are inflicted and what .they are for. Following is a list of signals you'll see from time to time in games this year, and the meaning of them: '••Military salute — Unnecessary roughness. Penalty 15 yards. i Grasping one wrist — Holding. Penalty 5 yards. . • _ A horizontal arc with the right hand— Player illegally in motion. Penalty 15 .yards. . Folded arms — Flying block or . tackle. Penalty 5 yards.

For instance, we can't re call one that signifies a penalty for the failure of a substitute to report to the umpire, or for .communicating with fellow players before the ball has been put into play. The penalty for the former is 5 yards, arid for .the. latter 15 yards.
