The millions who hare at various
times watched with most Intense au-l
partisan interest the struggle for su
premacy of two football teams, noted
the tricks of the game, the bulldog te
nacity, the giantlike strength, the cun
ning and at times ferociousness of
the glwllntor of the gridiron, will
find some difficulty in grasping and ac
cepting the statement that in Louis
ville there are eleven blind boys who J
play the game for all there is in It. '
These boys are just as cunning as their
"seeing" upponeuts, as scientific as
their needs deinaud. full of pluk and
endurance and splendid courage and
at all times as keenly aiive tj what is ,
going on around them as though they
were gifted with sight.
To the uninitiated this seems impos
sible, but there is reason in plenty f jr

For the Blind are just like any othtr
boys, with the same instincts, the same
love for fun and the same a-lesor.ie
desire for supremacy. lu ti general
way they are absolutely unconscious of
the fact that they do not nee, l-cnus
nature, having denied them visi m. as
we understand it, has turned their to:i

Jut a little bit better than those
known as "fceeiug' boys.
Not only are these boys of the blind
institute well versed in football, but
tbey understand and actually play the
great national game of baseball. In
addition to this, tbey go in for all field
games, and at the last summer meet
they beat the Louisville Y. M. C. A.
track team handily, scoring fifty-three
points to their opponents thirty-seven.
It Is nearly four years since any cer
tain attempt was made to develop the

tute. They are by nature playful and
full of pent up animal spirits, anxious
for all kinds of sports, but not know
ing just how to go about It.
During the first year the task was
not an easy one. Though the boys
were anything but stupid, the very
contrary being true, those who haTe
played football and witched the game
from bleachers and grand stands know I
its difficulties and can therefore fully
appreciate Just what these little blind
would le athletes bad to contend with. I
The following year the thing was eas-'
ier. and during the season of lin4 the
football eleven made a most remark
able record, playing three games, win
ning one and tying two. This season '
they arranged a schedule running up
to Tbaaksgivlng, and every game has

Some of the plays made by these

There is a story of an old lady who made up a batch
of mince and apple pies.
Wishing to be able to distinguish one kind from the
other she marked the mince pies T IV1 for "tis mince"
and the apple pies T M for "taint mince."
The baker's marks on the ordinary run of bakery
products are of little more value for purposes of identifi
cation than the marks on the old lady's pies.
