FRENCH TROOPS TO
LEARN NATIONAL GAME
Well, the last thing needed to weld |
the unity of the French and American
rations has come to rass. Witness
the following official dispatch today i
to the French embassy:
"It is announced, that in accordance |
with an order from the minister of
war. the teaching of baseball will;
henceforth figure in the training pro- !
cram of the French army. An effort
will be made to secure the services of j
professional men, L-aseball players at
present In France, with a Mew to In- j
pt rue ting French officers and soldiers i
In the national game of America.
"The order to teach the baseball to ^
the army is the outcome of observa
tions by French officers on the work
of the American soldiers. They are
convinced that the practice of base
ball contributes to fit the men for the
throwing of grenades, besides which It
constitutes a training In athletic
sporta. which Is very useful for
soldiers. John Evers. former baseball
champion, is going to spend some
time in a French camp In order to
teach the soldiers baseball."
