Know No Fear
Witt, which resulted in Princeton's vic
tory over Datiiuouth, will pasu down into
foot bull history aa th most extraor
dinary slue tha Introduction of the spurt.
It has already been deiji ibad and It Is
tafo to fay thst no kick ever gav rls
during a few hour after it had been
made to so widespread, a eilscuesion. It
should be stated that kicks of a similar
chaiacter, although by no means so re
murkable, hnv resulted in scores pie
vlounly, and In fact the caeo had hen
dlFi iiK.sed by tho in Ilk committee, al
thtniKh no such extra ji dinar'y hapiiehlng
as in thla taee has tvei- come before
them. Probably a tatinfnetory solution
of the difficulty will bo attained try a rule
to tho effect that the ball, afier It once
takea It flight, muni not again hit the
ground before it panne t;ver tbu goal
bar or over either post. The i canon fur
not allow !u : lie lo n hlng of Ihe ball
hy an opponent to vitiate th kick is the
difficulty of ruling upon thla. Il would
be easy enough for an official to Fee
that the ball wai struck by ail uplifted
hund or arm in case th ball were de
flected, hut a man might easily touch
the hall wltd his fincer tip and he alone
he sure that he hud thus touched II.
The season will certainly give rise lo
a very considerable dlscUKstcti of the
I present mica, mid a party that adv...
cates an Increasing number of downs
four instead uf throo, ull over tha field,
or at leant within the twenty-five yord
llnc--will gain many adherent.
The rules forbidding tackling below the
knee ai.ri decreeing that the ball Is
tit ad when any part of a man except hla
fi touches the grcund alien in the
gruMi of an opponent should ba either
modified oi enforced.
