General Pershing Has Put Ban
on Horseshoe Game.
Huskies Have Not Hesitated to Back
Horses Into Quiet Corner and Rip
Shoes Off Innocent Animals
May Uso Mule Shoes.
Tho American nrmy In Franco, It It
reported, ling boon embarrassed nt va
rious timet by tho sudden breaking
down of horses engaged In the trans
port service. Investigation showed
that the hornet were unshod, their
Kieel shoes having been removed mys
teriously. Further Investigation
showed Hint the shoes hnd been tnk
en off the nnlmnls by the doughboys
In order to pitch quoits, nothing being
so Rood for tho purpose ns n horse
shoe. Quoits nlwnys hns been a great
American Rame. If It wnsn't for
quoits and going to tho "decpo" to see
th. 2 :flfl come In, life would not be so
fhnclnntlnR for prominent citizens of
many bucolic burps.
Over In Franco tlmo hangs n bit
heavily around tho enmps occasionally,
and there has been a great revival of
"pltchlnV The more tho gnmo has
spread tho moro demand thero has
been for horeeshocs. Now, thero Is
one thing you can say for tho Ameri
can doughboy. When ho wants any
thing ho goes and pets It, whether It
bo a Hun or n horseshoe. Various
thousands of huskies, needing horse
chocs, lmvo backed transport horses,
crvalry horses, all kinds of horses Into
n corner and with Uttlo moro than a
"whoa, boy," of preparation, hnvo
r'pped tho shoes off tho Innocent ani
mals nnd then proceeded to got Into
the game.
Mr. John .T. Pershing ft said to bo
vhot Is called "peeved." IIo has Is
Rued orders prohibiting tho plnylng of
quoits with horseshoes, on pain of 30
days In tho guardhouse for tho first
offenso and three months' Imprison
ment for tho second.
If the doughboys wish to pitch
quoits, he says ho has no objection,
but they must lay off tho uso of horse
shoes. IIo gives full permission to
them to take all tho mule shoes they
desire, that Is, If they take them off
th hind or southern extremities of tho
gentlo creatures.
It looks as If It will bo a closed sea
son for quoits In Franco so long as tho
war lasts If Pershing persists in loolc
tiT at tho great American gatno of
"pitch" this way.

Walter Johnson's fast one, except that
Johnson's offering may lmvo a "hop"
on It. Tho letter says:
"I lmvo been over tho top nnd I

SOLDIERS WITNESS BOXING AT CAMP HUMPHREYS, VA.
Published articles to the effect that
boxing docs not give n useful training
ns n basis for bayonet fighting nnd that
tho two have no common relationship
have been emphatically denied In a for
mal statement Hint has been Issued by
Dr. Joseph K. Itnycroft, head of tho
athletic division of the war depart
ment commission on training camp ac
tivities, whlrh directs the athletic activ
ities In tho military training camps
throughout tho country. The statement
follows:
"Several moro or less uninformed
critics hnvo published articles to tho
effect that boxing does not glvo useful
training ns a basis for bayonet fight
ing. Such criticisms are based upon
ignorance of both bayonet lighting nnd
military boxing. Thn cxpcrlenco of tho
pnst year In tho training camps shows
that boxng has great value as a prep
aration for bayonet fighting, and in tho
development of thoso physical and spir
itual qualities that are characteristic
oi tho aggresslvo fighting men.
Boxing Supplies Factor.
"The great majority of our young
men who inalce up tho army have had
llttlo or no cxpcrlenco in physical con
tact games that develop self-reliance,
courage, quick thinking and quick de
cisions under fire. Iluyonet training at
its best Is n drill hi which speed, en
durnnco nnd skill in handling tho
weapon arc developed, but In tho nn
turo of things thero can bo noprnctlco
contests wlth'tho lmyonots.v Bating sup
plies this Important contest factor and
furnishes n means of training men to
keep lr heads and to carry out an

FOOTBALL GAMES IN FRANCE
Director Anguish of Paris Division of
Y. M. C. A., Makes Request for
Pair of Pants.
Judging from n request mndo In the
Paris edition of an American newspa
per recently, thero Is going to bo n lot
of football played In Franco this fall.
Tho Illndouburg lino Is not tho only
ono that is going to bo .smashed over
there.
J. L. Anguish, director of, athletics
for tho Paris division of tho Y. M. O.
A., recently asked for a pair of foot
ball pants through tho columns of a
nowspaper. IIo explained that tho pair
of pants was wanted to servo ns a pat
tern from which ho hopes to lmvo 1'-,-000
pairs mado for tho uso of tho sol
diers. Inasmuch as the great football stars
of tho past decade from tho East,
West, North and South nro with the
American expeditionary forco abroad,
thero should bo some real nil-American
games staged behind tho lines soon.
That Is, If Mr. Anguish gets that pair
of pants for n pattern.

developed by practice In boxing to an
extent nnd with a rapidity that Is im
possible In uny other plan of training
thus fnr tried.
"Tho commanding officers of tho
training camps In this country lmvo al
most universally testified to tho value
of boxing as n part of military training.
In many of the principal camps It has
been made a partoi the dally routine.
"The primary object of boxing, ns
taught in the nrmy, Is to mnko skillful,
self-reliant, hnrd-hlttlng men, rnther
then expert boxers. An elllclent sol
dier must not only bo trained In tho
technique of offense nnd defense, but
ho must bo charged with tho proper
fighting spirit.
Blows Arc Similar.
"Practice In boxing has an additional
value, because many of tho blows nnd
movements taught tho men In boxing
class havo their clobo counterparts In
bayonet fighting. For example, u left
lead to tho head Is very similar to a
long point to tho throat; a right hook
to tho Jaw or tho body Is like tho blows
with tho butt of tho rifle. Of course,
thero aro thrusts and parries In bayo
net fighting that nro different from any
lead, block or counter In boxing, but
tho principle Is the same, and tho se
quence of action, tho body balance, and
tho ability to tako advantage of open
ings in tho opponent's defense devel
oped In boxing nro fundamentally Im
portant for the bayonet lighter.
"In tho final analysis all physlcnl
training In tho army must havo n prac
tical military significance j boxing pos
sesses this .significance to an unusual
extent, so that particular htress bus
been laid upon the Instruction of nil
tho soldiers, rather Hum upon tho de
velopment of a few experts."

PLAYER BEHIND CLUB
OF MOST IMPORTANCE
Inventions Seldom Assist Golfer
in Improving His Game.
Innovations In Form of a Club Rarely
Prove Practicable Correct Line,
Proper Force and Touch Does
tho Business.
With a million golfers In the United
States, llttlo wonder that the lnventlvo
wind occasionally offers suggestions
which threaten to send the ancient
game and Its traditions a-gllmmerlng.
Inventions rarely receive encourage
ment, for "golf Is golf j" and meant to
be played as "she Is writ ;" and for tlmt
reason tho Iconoclasts seldom mnko
more than a momentary Hash ero fad
ing nwuy to oblivion.
For Instance, one Is at a loss to know
why anyone should suggest tho substi
tution of yellow for white paint on a
golf bail. It has been clnlmed that un
der certain conditions white Is hnrd on
tho eyes; that on u very bright day a
moro neutral color would bo service
able. Yet Rolfnrs have played for n good
many years, and the sun has shone Just
as brightly In the past as It docs at
present. It would bo hard to get a bet
ter contrast than tho white ball on tho
green turf.
So far as tho trade goes, there havo
been comparatively few recommenda
tions to change the color of the ball,
though recently n man who Is a fre
quenter of mi Eastern link left an or
der with u sporting goods house for n
dozen of ono of the latest makes of rub
ber cores to bo painted red.
Ills reason was that when his shots
went wandering among tho glistening
white shells of thu Lido club courso
tho cnddle had trouble In locating tho
sphere. Consequently he figured It out
tlmt n red object would bo much easier
to distinguish.
Occasionally somo ono comes along
with u new Idea In the form of n club,
but theso Innovations rarely prove
practicable. Not long since a man had
n new-fangled putter, with a head of
abnormal size, and n mliror attach
ment on thu shaft. He thought ho had
something that was likely to revolu
tionize the short game, but received no
encouragement from the manufacturer
to whom he showed the club.
After all, tho same old saying, "It's
tho man behind tho club," continues to
apply. If ho hits the ball right it
won't go astray and thero will bo llttlo
trbublo in finding ,lt. Whilo on tho
green It's getting tho correct lino nnd
knowing tho proper forco and touch
that docs tho business, mirror or no
mirror.

ant After Graduating From

Another former Tiger, John D.
Couch, gets a star on n sorvlco flag
with .Detroit, as tho last club on which
ho played, best entitled to it. IIo has
Just been mado a second lieutenant In
tho army, after graduating from tho
Camp Fremont (Cnl.) training camp.
Couch, a former Stanford univer

bought by Detroit for tho 1017 season
and trained with tho team at Waxa

later suffered from blood poisoning,
and lias dono llttlo or no pitching
