hearts thrown Into the spurt, and with
the success which always crowns the
Wclleslcy girls' efforts.

tonian and his dismay at the display of
such dense ignorance, probably followed
by bis total collapse.
THE INS AND OTJTS.
To begin with a scrimmage then or pns'
slbly to be more logical the size of the
field In which football is usually played;
330 feet-long by 1G0 feet wide, such Is the
regulation size, with a goal place in the
middle of each goal line, composed of two
upright pests, exceeding 20 feet In height
and placed IS feet G inches arart, with
the cross-bar 10 feet from the ground.
Eleven me-n form a team; they are desig
nated as left end, left tackle, left guard,
center, right guard, right tackle, right end,
quarter, left halfback, right halfback, full
back. The first seven of these men called as a
body, rnshers stand in a line with center
in the middle. Directly baefc-of center of
this line, stands the man designated as
quarterback; the two halfbacks stand be
hind the quarterback, with the fullback
standing farthest back of all.'
This sounds hopelessly complicated, I fear,
and well adapted to bring on several sep
arate and distinct headache;; possibly with
seven tcacni's representing the rushers and
four souvenir teaspoons for the other men.
matters may be simplified; this method of
illustration can be recommended from ex
perience. To proceed still deeper Into the depths.
The quarterback serves the ball; the half
backs do most of the running with the ball,
and the fullback docs nearly all the kicking,
and the other seven men? They join In
the general scrimmage anet oftentimes find
their way home In an ambulance.
The object of Uie game is to carry the
ball over the' attaekins,goal line or kick
It over, and between the goal posts to
score a "touchdown" and a "goaL" A
touchdown is when the ball is carried,
Licked or passed across the goal and there
A goal is obtained by kicking the ball
from the opponents goal, called "a goal
from the neld." or by kicking It rrom a
place held on the ground by one of his own
