Sports -Basketball Invented in 1891 BY HAROLD CLUCK TT is a beautiful spring day down South. You and your friends are gathered in the school jard. "Somebody ought to invent a game we could all ploy. One that isn't dangerous and yet full of pep," remarks one of the boys present. Jt is ,a nasty rainy day up .North, You are all in the school 'gymnasium. Sort of feeling a bit blue and glum. "Why can't some genius figure out a game we could play indoor* while it is nasty outdoors?" suggests one of the girls. Such a game was actually invented. One that can be played by boys and girls of all ages. And indoors or outdoors. In fact millions of people play this game. , It all started in the year 1801. A young athlete, Jim Naismilh, had to ihe famous Springfield, Mass., Y.M.C.A. to learn all he could about physical education. Football was, and still is, a •ather rough game. Young Jim started to figure out a game that could be played within the walls of (hat gymnasium. He got hold of some peach baskets. Tf you organised a team, had them aim ball at the baskets, you ought to have a lot of excitement. Strange as it seems, one of the c"flicult problems was to get the Party Idea —Try Soda Straws for Amusement BT ERMA REYNOLDS A SODA STRAW party! Doesn't that sound like super tun? You'll need lots of soda straws, an empty milk bottle, a big bowl of popcorn, and as many paper *upe as guests. From tfrssue paper, cut out many squares, circles or dolls— any shape, but not too large. First, give each player a straw and a cutout. Have everyone line up against one wall. Have them place the cutouts on the floor in front of them, in an even row. Each player uses his straw to blow his cutout to the oppo-jsue onto the end site wall. Then he sucks his tis- H'AINT AIR AROUMP THE 8f(3 WIWD backwards to the start. I/ the paper drops the player must inhale it back. Then the first part of the race is repealed, only this time each tries to blow the others' cutouts out of the way while he blows his own to the finish line. Now divide your guests into two lines. Be sure each player nas a cutout and a straw. The Jeariers inhale their cutouts onto the ends of their straws, then exhale them onto the straws of the next players, and so on. If a cutout falls it must he inhaled back. Winning team demands a forfeit. Now put your bowl of popcorn on the floor. Give each player a paper cup and straw and have them kneel around the bowl. Players suck out popcorn, one piece at a time, and place it in their cups. Allow five minutes for this race. Time for another relay. Each person has cup and straw. The cups of the two leaders each hold 10 pieces of corn. At the signal each leader sucks up a piece and places it in the cup of the second player, who passes it on the same way. Last player in line keeps all the corn in his cup until the race ends. Next, place the milk bottle on the floor. Kach player in turn stands an outstretched arm's length from the bottle and tries to drop in 10 straws, one at a time. After this game, serve cookies and botllen of soda pop with, of course, soda straws! ball out of ihe basket. At first, a student would go up to the gallery, climb over the rail, and reach into Jhe basket for the ball. That was too much trouble. Second advancement was to get hold of a ladder and climb up for the ball, final step was to cut out the bottom so that the ball fell right through. There were no «et or printed rule* at first. TN 1802, Mr*. Senda Berenson Abbott, first editor of ihn Women's Basketball Guide, made for girls at Smith College adap- ations of the game which prevail in women's basketball today. Apparently age isn't even a limit in this game. In South Hoyaltori, Vermont, there is an unusual baaetball team. It is composed of all grandmothers. And they haven't as yti lott a game.
