iL-., ... . -
??" (Chicago Record.)
? great many people take considera?
ble interest in football who do not real?
ly understand much about how It la
played. They know from reading the
paper that when any one "bucks the
line" and gains a few yards he has
done a good thing for his bide; they
feel sure that If any one should make
a forty-yard run while they are looking
on they would know it. About ?'punt?
ing" they are not so sure. They have
an indefinite idea that it must mean
simply kicking, and they expect to find
out ubout It when they go to the game.
They wonder why so much "fumbling"
Is done of so big a ball and take It
for granted that they will know a fum?
ble when they see it. Their have only a
confused notion of what is meant by
"Interference," "blocking," "holding in
the line," "offside piny" and so on. It is
easy to guess what "tackling" means,
although at first they are not sure that
tho tackling Is not indiscriminate be?
tween sides instead of being confined
to the "nailing" of the man who has
the ball. It Is not hard to tell what
"breaking through" means, but when
tlie paper says "Murphy broke through
and blocked Balrd's kick" they know
Murphy did it. but do not comprehend
why the play was difficult or unusual.
GOES OUT BECAUSE IT IS POPU?
In short, the beauties of football nre
lost upon half the spectators of about
every game that Is played, "his half
goes out'because It Is the sport that
everybody is talking about. When It
gets there It sees a lot of players rolling
around and piling on top of one anoth?
er, with the crowd cheering occasional?
ly, all the while it can see little to In ?
come enthusiastic about. Perhaps once
or twice In the game some one gets
the ball and circles the opposing team,
making a gain of fifteen or twet ty
yards, with everybody else making frsh
tic efforts to get up with him. There is
something In this that appeals und
the novice gets tip and shouts. He
, feels n thrill of appreciation, too. when
he sees the ball suddenly rise In the air
and circle quite a distance up field, for
he knows somebody has kicked il and
he has been told that the ball Is not
round, but Is oval shaped, making It ft
very difficult thing tn kick it accurate?
ly. Yet these plays that appeal most
readily to the grand stand are often
the easiest and simplest In the game.
Down there in the thick of the fight ?
where the players stand grouped, every
now and then plunging at each other
I and piling up In a confused mass?there
Is where the greatest skill, strength and
really good playing is generally done.
It Is hard for even the old-lime foot?
ball enthusiastist to keep track of the
ball enough to discriminate where th?
good playing Is being done, and the
newcomer Is helpless. Me falls to see
any beauty In that continuous piling
up of men and has no Idea at all what
Is being done with the ball.
A It RANG EM EN'T IX THE DIXE-TTP.
Hut to return to the teams at their
first "line-up." Here the men are seen
In the positions that they occupy over
and over again all through the game.
The side with the ball is well drawn to?
gether, the entire line being in place,
with thi> quarterback standing just
behind the centre man. through whom
I always the ball Is put Into play. Close
to the quarterback are the two hall's,
and usually tho fullback also, although
the latter, when a kick is In order drops
back a few yards. On the other side?
the defensive?the arrangement of men
is not unite the same. The fullback
stands far back of the others, prepared
to stop any runner who may get past
the line or to g.-t a punt. The two ends
Instead of staying In line station
themselves out at the ends, prepared to
stop runners, look out for criss-cross
plays, etc. In a rough way the follow?
ing tablo will show the ordinary line?

KICKING OP C.DAT.S.
[When the game starts the ball Is]
tcked off from the centre of the field,
[layers on the side kicking have to
jmaln "on side" until the ball is klek
11. but the instant it Is kicked they
jart down the field in order to prevent
leir opponents from carrying It back.
Jn tho other hand, the man getting
e ball starts back with It, generally
Hing In behind the players of his
vn side, who shield him as much us
sslble, by "blocking off" those of the
posing side. After the man with the
11 Is "downed" the teams line up and
e real football begins. Kick-offs from
o centre of the field occur rarelv?
ly at tho outset of each half and
ter trief at goal. The primary facts
it the two goal posts are HO yards
art, that the Held between the pnsls
marked off with lines five yards
art, that one of these lines parallel
th the goal postB, is the goal line,
and that It is the sole aim of both
teams- to pet the -ball across tliis all
Important goal line Is of course known
to all who give much attention to the
game. When the ball Is shoved over
thls goal line for a touchdown it counts
four points and Is followed by a try at
goal, which. If made, udds two
additional points. In trying for goal
the ball Is brought ovit to the llfteen
yard lino at a point opposite the plncti
where it was touched down back of the
line. If the touchdown was made near
the goal posts the kick at goal Is easy,
whereas If the touchdown wits near the
side Hues and at some distance from
the goal posts It requires a kick at goal
from an angle that is very dllllcult. That
Is why some goal-kicks arc referred to
as easy anil others as dllllcult. How?
ever, the side making u touchdown
near the side lines has the privilege
of "kicking out for position"?that Is,
the nuin with the ball designates some
one player In a favorable position as
related to the goal posts Into whose
hands ho must kick the ball. If he
falls the side loses Its chance to kick'
IMPORTANCE OF THE INTERFER
I , ENGE..
As soon as the two teams are lined
up as shown In the chart, the quarter?
back gives a signal und the center
snaps or pusses the ball back to him.
As quick ns ho gets the ball ho passes
it to the man who has been slgnulcd to
carry the ball. This man has been
prepared for the pass and as soon as he
sees the quarter-back's hands go down
he moves up to receive the leather.
At the same time every other man In
the team moves In a position that has
been blocked out for him by others.
Each man must take care of a certain
man on the opponent's side and when
he does not prevent his man from get?
ting Into the play his game is called |
weak. The man with the ball Imme
and attempts to advance.
Interference is one uf the essential
points of the game and a team Is weak
or strong just so far as It has developed
this guarding of its own men or back?
ing up the guarding of Its oppents. It
Is this that the team works so hard to
develop and perfect, and In this arc
embraced all the science and techni?
que of the game. How does a team
interfere then and how is Interference
broke up? Take the case of the man
who has the ball. Suppose it Is a half?
back and that he has been told that the
play Is aroud tho right end. Imme?
diately the ball Is passed the right half?
back rushes out to block the right end ?
that Is. to prevent him from stopping
the man who is advancing with the
ball The full buck and all the left side
of the line get Into the play. They run
around toward the right end. the full?
back lending and the man with the ball
right behind him. the other players of
the left side on his "In" side to prevent
men front tackling him. It Is this side
that Is the weakest, for there are ten
men there to one on the outside. The
more completely they can surround the
runner, and thus prevent his being
tackled and thrown, the stronger Is
the play and the greater chance of malt?
ing large gains.
Oftentimes one hears of brilliant in?
dividual playing. This Is the bane of
all football coaches. It generally moans
that the man made a splendid run or
played u fine game without any Intoi
fcrencc. This Is not always the man's
fault. To got into Interference re?
quires that a man shall bo quick and on
tho watch, that he comprehends the
signal and Is skillful chough not to let
the man in front hold him until it is
too late to got around. Then tho man
with the ball is nearer the end he Is
going to circle than his interferers,
and so they have to be quicker than ho
Is to form the protection.
After the Interference Is formed.and
the end is circled tho next thing is
to block all men from tackling the
runner. And here just a word about
rules. The side thai has the ball cannot
use their hands In Interfering with
their opponents. In blocking them they
must either use their shoulders or their
arms. Their opponents have the per?
fect liberty of using their hands in
slopping or tackling a man. "Killing"
a man is putting him Out of the play,
that is blocking and stopping him so
that he does hot bother tho runner
again. A great weakness Of many
players is that they merely st ip a
man momentarily, allowing him to ro?
c-over and pet beack Into the Interfer?
ence or tackling.
IMPORTANCE OF "LINK" PLAYS.
Line plays and mass plays are two
styles of tactics that are used exten?
sively In football. They are In reality
much more scientific than the end runs
In line plays some one of the backs or
men in the Uno Is given the ball to go
through the line In front of him.
A team which has possession of the
ball has three attempts to advance it.
If In these three trials the ball has not
j boon advanced live yards or carried
[ back ten, it is given to the opposing
team and they have the same privi?
lege. After the ball has been put In
play and the runner Is stopped a clown
is called. Technically a down is when?
ever the ball has boon stopped for any
reason whatever. They are known as
first, sectond, third, and fourth downs,
according as the required gain, h?s
boon made or not. It is obvious that if
upon the third down tho required gain
has not boon made the best policy for
the team Is to kick.
