Tacoma Is going to have more
ball next season no matter who
has the team. He put it up to
the directors at the meeting at
Portland and D. ■, Dugdale of
6eatile was the only one to op
pose it. It is planned to have
the Tacoma team at home 10
weeks next season Instead of the
■even of this season. Victoria
will also have more ball.
Walking is also going to lay
■tress on the matter of a salary
limit do that the smaller teams

Generall speaking, the line Is
blamed for the bulk of poor foot
ball playing, and generally the
line deserves condemnation. Yet
a good linecenter, guard and
tackles-—is considerably . more
than half of a good team.
"Charging," the basis of play
on the scrimmage line, will play a
more Important part than ■ ever
this year. The man with the ball
is now compelled, without,push
ing or pulling by his team mates,
to make 10 yards in four downs
— instead of In three as hereto
fore — and a yard or two , gained
through a quick opening will be
appreciated. Buch*a play, can be
successful only when the linesmen
open quick holes in the defensive
line; and on the other hand, the
defense against such plays will
be successful only if the linesmen
are competent to prevent, such
holes. ■''
So, Mr. Captain, the first thint;
you MUST do when you get your
players out 1b to see the lino can
didates to charging each other,
and pick your team from the fel
lows who are most successful In
forcing back or in getting
through. Divide this squad, line
them up on cither side of the ball
and make them try to break
through and get the ball as the
center pastes it.
BPBCD is as important as
weight. It's the center, guard or
lackle, who, when th« ball is
■napped, can get across the foot
of neutral space between the lines
and smash his opponent before
UK gets started, who will prove
the most valuable. The first im
pact, the jump, counts a lot.
The best linesmen take a posi
tion similar to the starting pose
of a sprinter, save that the feet
are beßt farther apart usually with
that foot nearest the tenter, be
hind the other about a foot, and
with the weight almost evenly
distributed between hands and
foet. This gives steadiness, al
lows of starting in any direction
with more speed.
The use of the arms is decided
ly limited. On defense you may
use them only to shove an oppon
ent aside that you may get at the
man tarrying the hall —and on the
offense you must ALWAYS keep
them close to your sides.
Of course you cannot strike a
Mow with fist or arm. But you
may strike an opponent with your
body any one of a dozen ways.
You can charge strajght into him,
throw yourself sideways, hit him
from onfi side or the other, high
or low, depending upon what you
want to do with him and how he
is playing against you. This
works out during the game; what
you must learn by much practice
Is, how to do it and do it first,
to prevent getting it yourself. This
Is where speed counts.
In some circumstances 'two
linesmen can work together In
groat style; one may throw him
self at an opponent, striking him
low on one side while his part
ner does likewise, only striking;
high on the opposite side. The
result is an effective putting out
of the way.
In the same way, on the de
fense, one man may draw an op
ponent off little, to give his part
ner a chance to slip through and
nail the man with the ball, and
ho on in endless variety. These
things players must work out for
themselves, meeting each sltua-

One general rule Is that the
