DENTON JOURNAL Page 8 KELVIN A JOHNSON, Inc., Publishers Saturday Morning, December 24, 1938 SOCCER FOOTBALL--THE LAWS OF THE G A M E Evangelists at HillsboroM.E.Church\ By W. C. Cwincell, U. S. R. A. Inasmuch as there is a variation of knowledge with regards to ASSOCIATION FOOTBALL among the people of the Eastern Shore and the players that arc playing in the Eastern 'Shore League, let us consider, before we go into the rules of the game, the case of a person who is totally unacquainted with the laws of the game, and if we can conceive his going to one of these games at which there are a large number of spectators, I think he would first be rather .more interested in the reaction of the spectator to the game than he would be to the actual game itself. He would be rather struck with wonder at the apparent knowledge of the technique of the game possessed by the lookers-on and at their readiness to instruct the players as to what they were to do and how they were to do it. The criticism by the spectators of the referee would also tend to make'him astonished at the .keenness of the spectators sight, for frequently they could see through bodies in order to arrive at a decision oftentimes at variance with that of the arbiter of the game. He might disagree perhaps with some of the methods which were adopted by the spectators to carry on their work of instructing the officials of the game, but he couldn't deny the whole heartedness of their efforts or the forcefulness of their injunctions. When next, having viewed the spectators, he would turn to the play-area itself, he would still be a little perplexed because he would notice then the reaction of the players to the de- cfeions of the referee, for the latter was a man who had been apparcntl selected because of his knowledge of the laws of the game and for his skill in conducting the game. This is the case of the shore league more than any other, the reaction of the player to the referee's decisions. I am not interested in what the spectators think or do but I am interested in the referees and players. I think the natural reaction of the soccer league and the Eastern Shore Baseball would be wise to take a hint, because they have the came trouble, that when the actions of the players become so violent that the referee is forced to stop the game for the safety of the other players or any player becomes nasty to an official, he should immediately order him off the field. Of course officiate; sometimes make a mistake, but as we shall see later, there is a place in the rules that states a captain shall be the representative of his team and may address an official on matters of interpretation or to obtain essential information, if it is done in a courteous manner. No other player may address an Official. As to the spectator, I would say that inferiority complex perhaps is once more at the bottom of the trouble. The spectator, being in the main less able to play the game than the player and less able to rule the game than the referee is anxious to restore himself in his own esteem by assuming 1 a position or impression of superiority, first, as I say, to restore his own esteem and second, to raise himself in the esteem of those who arc around at the time. Whether that is a feasible explanation or not I don't know, but we will leave it at that. I will now take up the laws of soccer in detail, by this I hope the knowledge of the game will be increased for both the players of the league and the specators. In the article following and more to come latter I will attempt to explain the contents of the rules. The first law is a kind of a comprehensive law. It deals with the make-up of the team and with the various points with regard to the playing arena. Law two deals with the duration of the game, which is 90 minutes, unless 60 otherwise agreed upon (as in the case of the Eastern Shore League) by a ruling of this league 4 twenty minute quarters, also law two states that their shall be a toss of a coin, with a choice of goals or kick off to winners of toss. The Kick-off-The kick-off is from the center. It is the place-kick, so called because the ball is placed there. It is the only place-kick of the game and must be kicked forward. Until the ball at least turns it- own circumference, the game is not in progress. The ball must be played forward. There Is no snch thing as back passing. The opponent must be 10 yards away. Law three-I think there is nothing about Law Two that you wouldn't understand. Law three goes on further to say and deals with the change of ends of fields at half-time, but because of our league ruling that we play in quar- · ters, we change ends- every quarter, with just enough time out to change ends. At half-time players are entitled to their five minutes rest. They can insist on it. There shall be a kickoff after each quarter, the center of the side that did not kick-off in the preceding quarter kicks-off.

CAWLEY, Clerk By DREW PEARSON Naturally the Baltimore Sun lias published nothing about it, but there is eome very interesting dynamite in the McKesson and Robbins druTM scandal pertaining to Senator Tydings and his law firm. The McKesson and Robbins company, which is now disclosed as having sold arms, and robbed its stockholders of about 54,000,000 was a heavy contributor to the passage of the Tydings' price-fixing bill through the Senate. Also it contributed to tho tea? paid to members of the. Senator's law firm, and worked for his re-election to the Senate. R. F. Berls, an official of McKesson bobbins, wrote to Drug Trade Newt an Aug-ust 15 urging that "if the Drug Industry did not do everything In its power to influence the voters of Maryland to return Senator Tydings to Congress, the industry would be left in a weak position. "I assure you," continued the McKesson and Robbins official, "that I shall be glad to follow through with any contacts I have in the State of Maryland asking them to vote for Mr. Tydings and influence their friend* to do likewise." Connecticut Bribes Chief association of the Tydings law firm and McKesson and Robbins was in passing the Tydings price- fixing bill not only through Congress but through 42 state legislatures. The Tydings firm represented the National Association of Retail Druggists all during this lobbying cam- pagn. Herbert Levy, partner of Tydings, denied this during the primary, and doubtless it will be denied again. Nevertheless, the court records prove it to be true. McKesson and Robbins, in turn, were closely affiliated with the National Association of Retail Druggists and cooperated with the Tydings law firm. Simultaneously, Senator Tydings' father-in-law, Joseph E. Davies, and his law firm represented McKesson and Bobbins directly in Washington. In Connecticut, a grand jury disclosed that McKesson and Robhins and the National Association of Retail Druggists had bribed several state politicians to pass the Tydings price-fixing bill through the state legislature. Referring to Harry E. Mackenzie, one of the indicted politicians, tha grand jury report reads: "During both siisions (of the legislature) he was active for the druggists association and was receiving a salary of 53,900 from McKesson and Robbins, plus an expense account of $3,000. The grand jury also reported that the National Association of Retail Druggists, which the Tydings law firm represented, "through solicitation from its members, collected a fund of approximately $13,000 practically all of which was i-pent in the 1937 session in securing passage of the 'Fair Trade Act'." This was another name for the so- called Tydings Act. The 1937 .session of the Connecticut legislature, it will be noted, coincided with the 1937 session of Congress when Senator Tydings pushed his price-fixing bill through Congress despite an unfavorable recommendation from the Federal Trade Commission, also from the White House, arid despite a subsequent message from the President denouncing the bill in scathing terms. After passage of the Tydings Act, McKesson and Robbins hailed it with full page advertisements in the Drug Trade News and told in detail how much extra money the drug trade could make from it. McKesson and Robbins were able to profit from the fact because their goods are trademarked, and the bill permitted retailers and wholesalers to fix prices on all trade-marked goods. Once the price was fixed it became a criminal offense for any retailer to sell below that price. The Tydings' law firm was retained last summer to prosecute three Baltimore merchants who violated the law by selling below the fixed price. Tom Johnson Some of the folks in Worcester County are getting very fed up with Tommy Johnson, who fancies him- ·.elf as the successor to Congressman Goldsborough, when and if the latter is elevated to the bench. What particularly, irked them lately was Johnson's walking out on the Maryland State Police after they had picked up Raymond Bunting of Fish- ersvillc, charged with hit-and-run driving. The police had arrested Bunting on the charge of hitting and killing a man between Berlin and Ocean City. But before the trial, which was scheduled for December 19, Johnson, who is state's attorney, went to Tennessee, leaving no one to represent the state or prosecute the case. Some of the people in Worcester County point out that Johnson has walked out several times beforo when he did not want to face a c:\ e which might make him enemies. Thiy say he would lather leave town than risk losing n few votes when the much dreamed time comes for him to run for Congress. Gambrill's Successor There i- a lot of interest in Roosevelt Administration circles as to \\ho will run for the seat made vncant b the death of Congiessniim Stev-j Gambrill of the Fifth District. It is no secret that tbc Picsitli-nl would like to see an out taiu'i.i.u leader emerge in who would challenge the two present Senators for control of tha Statu. Foremost among these possibilities is Lansdalc Sas=ccr of Prince George's County, who held the key in the gubernatorial election hist Suptcni- ber. Sasscer stands high with Roosevelt, who would have liked to have given Lansdalc more =upport last summer. At one time Roosevelt uven indicated through friends that he would like to have Sasscur in his administration. Sasscer also has the suppoit of his close friend Sumner Wellcs.-and it is upon Welles 1 advice that his decision to run for Gambrill's scat luiRt-ly retts. Another possible candidate, who stands high in the eyes of the President is Mayor Louis N. Phipps of Annapolis, newly elected state i-en- ator. Phipps delivered a brief speech introducing the President to the citizens of Annapolis last Labor Day, at which time the two became acquainted. Excellent reports of Phipps 1 work have rcachcrl other administration official.; and they consider him one one of the coming leaders of the state. Either Sa-,sccr or Phipps will get a warm welcome in Washington as successor to Gambrill. SCHOOL NEWS Continued from page 1 either, for in days gone by people didn't believe in hurrying. Oh, what's the use trying to solve i-uc'n an impossible problem? Anyhow, we're sure that the bdys and girls have: left their studies for lunch. Back in our home rooms at 12:40, we get prepared for about three more hours of instruction. First of all English class helps us in studying literature. At the present, essays arc our specialty. Just today we've studied one of the most humorous essay.5 we will probably take up in our text Some other time when time is not so short nnd writing space is lorger we'll give you the "lowdown" on the es-ay. Wrestling physically is not likely to be a part of our school curriculum, but we surely do wiestle with a geometry problem. Todav we studied about polygons, parallelograms, etc. Last but not least (in the student's mind) comas athletic period. Our sports reporter will give you the details. Adios.

But I know one tiling for sure. On the bulletin board in our English class we have what seems to be a rare old paper dating back t» 1812. On examining this paper niort clobely, however, we find H is not really an old paper for it wa^ printed only a few days ago. "The Raveloc Chronicle," edited and printed by Ben Johnson, has obtained its news items from the novel "Silas Marner".

Freshman News Well, another week has rolled around and here I am. We had tests last Friday and Monday in Civics class. In English clni we are writing compositions about incidents which we have cpxerienccd or know of. Most of the stories are quite interesting, and about all of thcrtl need revising. The fellows in the Manual Arts department never expected to "sew a fine seam", but that's exactly what they're doing, sewing sails on boats, and I don't mind saying that they're all good jobs. Agriculture News The Local Chapter of Hi» Future Farmers of America held its icgiilur monthly meeting Tuesday, December 13, in the high school building.

The material showed consideration and thought, but the boys speaking in favor of horses gave their part of the debate with much belter delivery than the boys in favor of the tractors; thus they won. On Monday, December 10, the Junior and Senior Agriculture boys were given a pleasant liurprise when Dr. Cotterman, supervisor of Vocational Agriculture in Maryland, and Mr. Willis visited their class. Correction Last week we made a mistake in spelling "Merry Christina'" in Latin. The correct spelling is "lo Saturnalia"" Anjhow, the thoughts are the same; we still mean MERRY CHRISTMAS! "IIOPPY" STARS RIDE FAY- ORITE STEEDS IN FILMS There's more to being a good Westerner than just knowing how to ride ·v horse! You've got to feel a particular closeness to the animal. You've got to sense what, he's feeling at any particular moment. You've got to know his whims and desires and cater to them.

That's the opinion of three of the screen's foremost horse-lovers, William Boyd, George Hayer and Russell Hayden, the familiar "Hoppy," "Windy" and "Lucky" of the ."Hop- along Cassidy" outdoor action romances, who return to town again in Clarence E.

They think of gold braid and hallowed tradition am! the spendid young men of the Naval Academy. All t'ris is very fine; it is good dianuitic material. But it is probably nei'.her as fine nor a^ dramatic as the great story out of which 20th Century Fox ha= fashioned "Submarine Patiol." Because "Submarine Patrol,'' while based on the most lie- loic chapter in the whole history of naval w a r f a i e , is no more a typical "Navy Picture" than "Alexander's Ragtime Band" was a typical musical. It is Director John Ford who says so, the man who made "The Informer," "Woe Willie Winkle" and "The Hurricane," and who climaxe.; his award-winning career with this new picture, at the Dentonia Theatre Monday and Tuesday, December 26 and 27.

With West Point forming the lomnntic background, -'Touchdown, Army" tells \vhat happens when a cocksure football hero from the home town comes smack up against the strictly-regulated life of the United States Military Academy and falls in love with an officer's daughter. The picture was directed by Kurt Neumann, who filmed last rear's Annapolis succe-s, 'Hold 'Em Navy."
