Th,e ball goes directly back to No.
4, set for a punt or drop kick. He
takes about three steps to his left,
TURNS and passes the ball to the
No. 1 and No. 3 block as shown, of
one of them could go through the
line to make opponents believe he is
to receive the pass. This should not
be done unless No. 4 is a sure, rapid
passer who can be depended on to
get his pass away before the other
ends are on top of him.
No. 2 should go to the left and the
left end as designated as a fake to
that side of the line.
The line must hold steady.
This play should be well practiced,
as No. 4 should know the path of the
man he is to pass to.
NOT ALL BIG BUSINESS MEN ARE WITHOUT
VISION RING IS FOR WILSON
BY MILTON BftONNER do.
New York, Oct. 21. "Woodrow
Wilson was right in advocating the
eight-hour law, and the Republicans
are wrong in seeking to make capital
out of it Seventy Republicans in
the house voted for it and not one
Republican senator took steps to op
pose it. The Republicans were more
than willing to put the blame on the
Democrats, but at heart they knew
that eight-hour legislation in most
industries must prevail. As a mat

was bound to come. It is simply a
matter of social justice."
The speaker was Welding Ring,
' twice president of the New York
Produce exchange and twice, presi

association. He is senior member of
s the firm of Mailler & Quereau, whicn
exports steel and other products to
all ports in Australia, New Zealand
and South Africa.
Ring is noted in New York as one
of the greatest authorities on all mat
ter of foreign shipping. His views on
the eight-hour law show that not all
men in big business are without vi
sion beyond the ( immediate dollar.
"Wilson's defeat would be a na
tional calamity," he said. "In the de
licate stage of international affairs it
would be an exceedingly dangerous
thing to swap horses In midstream,
to exchange ja man whose acts and
plans we know for one about whom
we know nothing and who tells us
nothing definite as to what he would
"Wilson has done things and done
them well. I don't approve of all the
laws which his administration, has
put on the statute books, but, in the
large, he merits approval by the vo
ters. I am for him because he is one
of the few men for whom I voted who
lived up to his pledges. He put into
law all the progressive things his
platform promised, and more, too.i
"I am not a partisan. I voted for
Roosevelt in 1904 and for Taft in
1908. I am supporting Wilson as a
president who ,has represented all
the people, instead of just some of
It was suggested- to Ring that as
he had been in the exporting business
for 40 years it would be interesting
to have an expression from'him as to
what the administration had done for
"I-am glad you ask," he said.
"Woodrow Wilson and his adminis
tration have done more to develop
American foreign trade than any oth
er president we ever had. And I say
that speaking from an experience
that goes back for 40 years.
"THe department of commerce has
sent its representatives to all parts
of the world to gather informajtion,
which is distributed by the govern
