TRACK EVENTS IN THE
COUNTY SCHOOL FAIR
The Advertiser quotes b?dow a num
ber of excellent bints on the various
track events that will be a part of the
County School Fair to bo held In
Laurens on April 18th. A careful
study of these suggestions will be a
great help, especially to the begin
"The start Is the Important 'part of
the 100-yard dash. The officials
should carefully. mark off the start
ing lino, and the Clerk of the Course
I should assign the runners to their
i positions. The contestant should then
take a stick or some sharp pointed
Instrument and dig a hole about eight
inches from the line, the back of
\ which should be perpendicular, po
the left foot can rest In It, step In
this mark and bring the right knee
to the Instep of the foot, and then
dig a mark where the right foot
touches; the purpose is to secure a
good footing and something to push
against to get a quick start. At the
command: "On your marks," place
the feet in the marks and rest on the
bended knee; upon the order: "Get
set," straighten the knee somewhat
and push the weight forward as far
as possible upon the hands which
are placed on the line. Wait for the
report of the gun; when it Is fired,
push hard with the feet and hands,
swinging the back foot forward with
a snap and immediately get Into the
stride. Do not straighten up or try
to leap from the marks. One should
run for 10 .or 15 yards before he Is
In an upright position. When a run
ner Is "set," his head should be up,
and his eyes on the course ahead.
Breathe only twice during the dash,
once at the start and again at the
50-yard mark. Do not stop running
abruptly, as It causes painful mus
cels, called "Charley Horse."
As in the 100-yard dash, the start
is the most important feature, and
should be gotten clown to a science.
The 220-yard dash requires more en
durance than the shorter dashes.
The pace is almost equal to that of
the 100 yards, and should be main
tained. Some runners prefer to hold
back a little speed for the final effort.
This is not a bad plan If the runner
does not get too far behind.
(120 yards and 220 yards)
In the 120-yard low-hurdle race
ton hurdles should be used; height
of hurdle, HO Indies. The hurdles
should bo placed ten yards apart,
with the first hurdle 15 yards from
the starting point, and the last hur
dle 15 yards from the finishing line.
In the 220-yard hurdle race, ten hur
dles should be used; height of hurdle,
21 inches. The hurdles should be
placed 20 yards apart, with the first
hurdle 20 yards from the starting
mark, and the last hurdle 20 yards
from the finishing line.
Low hurdles can be made as fol
lows: Select two pieces of timber 2
Inches by 1 inch and six inches long;
to those, nail two 1-Inch boards, 2
inches wide and 24 Inches long, then
nail strips ncross the top and bottom.
The accompanying cut shows how
this is done.
As In many athletic events, form is
of great importance. In clearing a
hurdle, the body should not be raised
over the cross piece any more than
Is possible. The rear leg and foot
should be in a position ready to swing
forward Into the stride, as soon as
the front foot touches the ground In
the far side. If the spring is made
off the right foot, the body Is turned
slightly to the right, and vice versa.
Beginner should work only one hur
dle, taking the start the same as In
the 100-yard dash and learn to ap
proach the hurdle at top speed clear
ing tho same In the stride, with as
little glide as possible, rather a quick,
snappy movement, bringing the front
foot to the ground as soon as possi
ble. When this Is learned he should
work over two or more, getting the
stride even and the take "off foot"
COtmlng to the right place before the
Running High Jump
The equipment necessary for this
event consists of two uprights and a
cross bar, the bar should bo a thin
stick two inches in width and should
rest on pins which should project not
more than three Inches from the up
rights. Tho height should be meas
ured from the middle of the bar to the
gro\yid. A competitor should be al
lowed three trial jumps at each height,
and If at the third trial he should
fall he should be declared out of the
competition, a Jump should be counted
as a trial Jump if the competitor
clears the bar or If he knocks It from
Theie is no limit to the run a com
petitor may take before attempting a
jump, and he may run to the bar in
any direction. But the best form is
to approach the stick straight to tho
front slowly, taking off the left foot,
swinging the right up hard and across
the body a little, using a strong up
ward arm heave, tho body turning to
the left and the left foot drawn up
sharply almost touching: tho other
thigh. As the body Is passing ovor
the stick tho left arm which is hang
ing down, should be forced backward
and up, wheih raises the loft foot off
the stick, the Jumper landing on all
fours facing tho stick. Littlo speed
in the approach should bo used except
In the last two steps, which should
bo quick and hard, measure tho take
off by standing In front of tho bar,
swinging up the other foot so that It
Just clears, then turn and step off
about 18 or 20 steps, make a mark,
and If the strides are even, the take
off will always como to the right
place on the ground In front of tho
stick. If It does not, move the back
mark one way or the other until It
Standing High .lump
The rules governing the running
high jump, also govern the standing
high jump, except that,
The feet of the competitor may be
placed In any position, but shall leave
the ground only onco in making an
attempt to jump. When the feet are
lifted from the ground twice, or two
springs are made in making the at
tempt, It shall count as a trial jump
without result. A competitor may
rock farward and back, lifting the
heels and toes alternatively from the
ground, but may not lift either foot
clear from the ground, or sidle it
along in any direction.
Running Broad Jump
In the running broad jump a take
off board two inches by four Inches
and two feet long Is set with the
ground, broad side up, and In front
of it the earth is dug out to a depth of
three inches, and from an area of two
square feet. The Jumper can start
back for his run as far as he wishes,
though 100 feet should be the max
imum. His toe must not break the
dirt In front of the take-off board, If
It does his Jump Is foul and counts
one of his three trials. He should
land on a place where the earth has
been loosened and leveled. To get
the best results, tho jumper should
run as fast as possible, strike the;
take-off board with the ball of his
foot, jump high into the air, draw up
his feet up under his body as far as
possible, and when alighting always
fall forward. Bach competitor should
have three trial jumps, and the com
petitors finishing one, two, thr.ee and
four in the trial jumps, should each
have three more trial jumps.
Standing Broad Jump
Rules governing the running broad
jump also govern the standing broad
jump; except that,
The feet of tho competitor may be
placed in any position, but shall leave
the ground only once In making an
attempt to jump. When the feet are
lifted from the ground twice, or two
springs are made in making the at
tempt, It counts as a trial Jump with
out result. A competitor may rock
forward and back, lifting heel and toes
alternately from the ground, hut
may not lift either foot clear of the
ground, or slide It along the ground
in any direction.
In this race, from three to eight
potatoes arc placed two yards apart
In a straight row. The first potato
being two yard* from a receptacle,
which should b? either a pall, bas
ket, box or pan not over 36 Inches in
circumference at the opening. The
finish is a line '> yards back of the
receptacle, whlcl: must bo crossed
