Almost any new Rule is looked upon with dubious eyes. One cannot Tell How it will operate till it is actually seen at work. There is much to support the belief that the new Rule about forcing the Ball out of Bounds will not Only Speed the game up but will also help to clean it up. In View of the Steps taken by the victorian football league in Avri Ting to the other states Avith the object of having the new Rule rescinded the following opinions from West and South Australia Are of particular in Terest or. W. R. Orr the Secretary of the West australian league consid ers that the Rule about forcing the Ball out of Bounds is a step in the right direction. I am satisfied that All the rougher elements of football commence Frodo the old method of throwing in the Ball from the Boundary. All that a edifying jostling and elbowing during the throw in Avill be eliminated. The game will be cleaner faster and More to the Cen tre. The bal Avill he More in play and probably More goals will result. Though this Rule May revolutionise the game any innovation which tends to improve it is Worth the fairest trial. Undoubtedly it will meet with much opposition but the Rule t w should be fairly tested before condemnation. South Australia s attitude. Or. Dawes the South australian Delegate at the Hobart conference states that his league were originally opposed to the idea. After watching the carnival games however he is now convinced the alteration will be a great Success. Like those in the West the South australians emphasise the fact that Victoria plays the game in an Over strenuous manner. All that brutality and unseemly conduct which creeps into and spoils Good football emanates from the pushing and struggling for places in the throw in. The South australians consider men Are being placed in teams Are not. And never wer footballers in the strict sense of the term. Under the Misnomer of shepherdess they Are so placed and indeed Are expected to prevent the Good Man from getting the Ball. By sheer strength and a eight they Are crowding the Clever Man of less weight out of the game. It will take time or. Dawes continued for the effect of the new Rule to be assimilated. It should to Ach players to exercise More care and to kick straighter. Football is if cognized As a game of certain risk. It should not be allo aved to develop into a game in which a Plaver will take unnecessary risk to life and limb. The new Rule should produce cleaner better and faster it is stated that measures Are Ben g taken to provide Annu matches Between West Australia and Victoria. Should this eventuate there is no doubt that South australian matches could be engaged in by the Westra lians in route. It Only needs annual matches of this nature to create a regular football Sheffeld and so drive a permanent and interested status to the great australian Winter game. Right next to Post office.

Frank Keogh and let us congratulate your Young . Rating club on the splendid Success that favored its first year s operations hear your two meetings show a profit of �1393. Not too Dusty he enough to provide stakes for your next meeting in january thus leaving everything else Clear profit. Goodo understand your club had to pay the . Government �3101 As tote tax. Gee Whiz that s pretty hot he of course its a stipulation inseparable from a racing club using the tote but it s hot All the same. If that tax did not exist what a profit your club would have shown on its first birthday. Still you come out with a Nice balance on the right Side of tha Ledger and Trust the same measure of Success will Mark All your fixtures. Yet when your club was first mooted a year ago certain turf authorities wanted us to believe that there was not room for it in our racing world guess those would be leaders of turf thought and lore Are now sorry they spoke out of their turn. Well Good Day and continued Frood Luck pleased to see you or p. J. Fianna an returned unopposed As chairman of the Young . Racing club and �0 arc every Man and woman who love the gee gees of ave Don t throw too Many bouquets but you can look upon yourself As an option. A Good chairman and a competent Secretary Are indispensable adjuncts to any racing club that wants to get Inot the turf limelight for is that you have Only two meetings per annul allotted to your vigorous Young club.

Supposing that the two missing White women had been Well connected closely related to a senator for instance do you think an obsolete tub like the Huddersfield would have been the Means of conveyance of the rescuing party Inot in your life. Why a Fleet of airships would have landed a thousand rescuers into Arnheim land Quick and Lively and the a Hole country Avold have been line tooth combed to elicit the truth or otherwise of the Story. The Tavo missing women arc not highly connected with the australian peerage Wel then the aristocracy. So there avas no desperate hurry up displayed to test the truth of the Story. You can take it from i that the muddling of some of the responsible Heads is going to Tell against you chaps next time you face the doctors. He of of course we know the matter is not in your department so that you should be absolved from blame but the electors won t be so discriminating next election Day when choosing Between lie sheep and the goats. You know some things Are hard to forget and the Huddersfield mess up is one of those things. Anyway the sooner it is proved that the comic opera search party was not on a boozing trip the better it will be for you and your cobbers for that is the impression planted firmly in the Public mind just now.

Scenes in sport How to create interest Little interludes it is no use denying that disgraceful scenes add greatly to the interest of almost any kind of sport. Like All decent people i strongly prove of them but i read in the papers of disgraceful scenes that have occurred at a football match or a Cricket match or a boxing contest i am usually conscious of a faint Pang of regret that i was not there to see Thern. When i saw the heading disgraceful scenes in the times c i fesses Robert Lynd m the Sunc a chronicle i found myself Reading about the olympic games at Paris with ii Fie excited curiosity than 1 had Felt the games started. My blood boiled just As it ought to have boiled As i read How the French Lexer hit the English Boxer on the Chest and How the thalian due list slapped the judge s face in a music Hall. 1 was extremely indignant at such a display of bad sportsmanship but i was Nso extremely interested. So As such things happen we shall j a least never be bored. Almost the Only sport at which disgraceful scenes soem never to occur arc bowls and croquet and As a result the newspapers devote scarcely any space to them. If Only a croquet player one Day Uke a Mallet Over his or her Oppon.
