SANFORD’S LATEST INVENTION Coach’s New Football Play May Revo- Jutioni^o AM Kinds of Kicking. George Foster Sanford, football sur geon and inventive genius of the grid iron, lias evolved another wrinkle. In cidentally the secret o f his visit to- Pennsylvania a short time ago is out, for it was to teach Boh Colwell's dis ciples the knack o f a new trick. Sanfoi'd and Fohvell belong to the new thought school of football, in which the old conservatism lias a!>out as much standing as the old mass play has in the 1910code. They areas thick as peas in n pod and always let each other in on their gridiron secrets. Sanford's latest invention is dubbed by him the multiple kick, but it isn’ t anything like that. It's only one kick, but the play requires the services o f the center, the quarterback and the other three backs, so that tlie multiple part refers to the handling o f the pig skin. It's a trick that may revolution ize the kicking feature o f football* but as yet it is a rather hazardous stunt at best and In some inarters* might he classed in tlie category of "shoe string” plays. Here's how it works— when it does work. From a kick formation the half backs lie down on the ground, facing each other. Bight above them stands the quarterin'.! k, ready to receive the ball front tlie center. Several paces behind the quarterback is the fullback, i’ iie pass is made, the quarterback [»laces the hall in the bands o f the halfbacks, they | ut it in position for the kick, and the fullback proceeds to boot the pigskin into the next county. It is very easy to see how farreach- ing the effects o f this play might be and wtint a tremendous bearing it has on punting and the kicking o f place ment goals. Itutgers has worked the play for kicks which went for seventy yards, particularly in tile tie with Washington and Leo. Bill Quigley of Pennsylvania has kicked several goal» from thi> fifty-five yard mark with the aid o f the multiple play, and Derr. Light and Berry have hid almost equal success. The play requires a stone wall line, and the development o f first class lino men is sort o f second nature with San ford. He may show, through It's Rut gers team, that his newest play is the real goods. It was Sanfonl who evolv ed the legal mass play, which the rules committee recently had to declare in keeping with the spirit and the letter o f the code. The new kicking play on paper sounds like a remarkable stunt, and it may iu reality prove to l»e one.
