Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 15, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE to THE LETHBRIDGE DAttt ' HERAIlJ TUESDAY, OCTOBER 15, 19I� 'miNGING UP FATHER" By G. McManus THE>f WUZ ^hat is the Kind That Makes The Boys Ready to Tackle Hiins (By Rip) Official army boxing rules to gay-ern boxing contests among the' 1,-000,000 Snen jn^training have been Issued. by the W&t Department Commission on Training Camp Activities. The new code differs radically from the codes commonly In use for the last ten or fifteen years. Greater credit Is � given to the boxer who ia aggressive in spite; -of punishment than to the one who covers up or clinches. "A million and a half men ot the new arms' afe being taught to bos," �ays Dr. Joseph E. Raycroft, head of the athletic division of the commission, in a 'statement accompanying the niw rules, "because it develops-in them thos^ i^qualities of alertness and pugnacity yjiiich makes them better^X?>ayonet fighters. Success in bayonet fighting ^depends upon aggressive determination and attack even more^ than upon technical skilL Boxing deVelops this aggressiveness in otCehce.

AU backstepping, covering up, and purely defensive work are - discouraged under the army boxing rules, and each contestant is made subject to a penalty for such work. This latter recommendation is a direct departure from the accepted etaudard �of ring strategy, which puts a premium on purely defenslye tactics. The object ot teaching boxillg in the army is to make "head up and eyes open" two-fisted fighting men. rather than expert boxers and ring fighters. Therefore, the instruction of the mass-and not a few individuals-^is or prime importance. Work for the largest number of men in,the shortest possible time. Eliminate the "frills" and fancy work, and do your best to get the men to flght aggressively and effectively. Six standard blows are sufficient. A straight left, well delivered and backed up by aggressive American determination, is a Boche eliminant in nine cases out often. The big contribution of boxing to military training js, to. develop in men the willingness and ability to fight at close range. Its purpose is to teach soldiers to give and take pimishmenL There is close relation in the qualities required for boxing and bayonet fighting. Both- require agility of body, quickness of eye, good balance, and control in giving a punch or thrust and an aggressive fighting spirit that breaks down or weakens defence and makes openings for an effective "finish." Ail efficfeht fighting soldier must not only be trained in the technique of offense and defence, but must be "charged" with the proper fighting spirit. We are dealing with men who are strangers in the main to personal combats of any nature, and it is toward this class of soldiers that the major portion of athletic and boxing activities is directed. Forward, action and aggressiveness in bayonet fighting is essential. Aggressive action in boxing tends to the same end. Boxing practice will build up the habit ot consecutive action"-namely, the ability to aense an opening and take immediate advantage of it without thinking and without hesitation. The practical application of this faculty to the exigencies of hand-to-hand conflict and trench attacks is obvious. "Open" rather than "inside" fighting is encouraged.

BEWARE THE OLD BLACK CROW Golferi Declare War on Bird of III New York.-For various reasons the farmer has always waved a threatening hoe at the crow, that imp of blackness with a preference for cornfields.
