Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - November 28, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIPGE DAILY Friday, November RIVERS DEFEATS IEACHC MAKES WONDERFUL CLAIM FOR SCIENTIFIC RUNNING Noted College Coach Explains What Baseball Players Have to Learn About Ait of Sprinting San Francisco, Nov. nomslock. the former college coach one time member of the .Harvard rowing crew and Intercollegiate heavy-we.sbt champion, who is cow employed as a coach of the Vnlver- Mtj' of California track has some original ideas for: makicg bill players fast H is generally believed in it speed is a natural gift, but Cora- stock thinks it is merely a mechanical proposition and-.that any well devel- oped man can be taught to run Oily yards at high speed. Is what CpmstocI; says oo the Eubject: "I have studied carefully Ihe play ers on the Los Angeles and Sicra- m'enlo teams and 1 have been amazed to find that not one man of the'elgh- .teen playing on the two teams knows low to run. Tie speed of every man ia the league could be that his percentage of safe arrivals it erst base- would increase 40 per "i further notice that time'after Ume the runner and the ball -arrive at Srsf bass almost simultaneously. At lent half the plays at Bret are mifht be termed 'close plays.' the ipeeii of the runner were- me- cbaclcally increased, the percentage .of outj at first vrould be decreased {rora 40 to 60. "Of the runners whose styles in lo- comotion I have examined Howard o Angeles and Wot ell are-the best and Bliss of Sacramento Is .An Athletic Crlmt.- .7 -i '-'Tie way they ail run a athletic crime, they have'the wrong Vnee action, place their feet wrongly, End'above all do not get the upper, part of their bodies Into the game ai all. How'ard has the right action with his' feet, bu! is retarded by. the use ol _hjs. .arms and .the of his TJoayV which he holds stiff. "Wotell runs neaily'ln correct form. Bliss Is something awful. "One' peculiarity that a professional coach'notices is .that the men run better. Vhen jogging along than they do al. top speed. When joising, be Ing natural athletes, they bring th'eir arms'and 'legs into, proper play. -Wben-they try to speed up, however, they immediately bring Into play el traordinary faults of action that re- tard them rather than help them.' "One place that the'faults of the DUO runners are glaringly apparent Is wben taking a lead off first base. With a lead of two or three yards off first -base it is absurd to think that any runner should not be able to out the throw from tbs catcher. The reuoo. that base stealers fail to dp so they get aVrbng start. They.lose no Urns at the getaway. In- stead oC getting in full stride at once, as track runners do, they don't get to top speed for at least three strides, hanging.limply like .fish, instead, ol liilng their arms to give themselves HOWARD HOLDEN wing.of the Capital's good iinlorO: R.
