New York, Hept. i!4. Keen students
of football believe that the much mal
igned forwird puss will come into Its
own this season, and thnt more of the
open style game will be exhibited than
in years. If they are right, it murks
the capitulation of n raft of Kastern
critics mid nrlienlnrly Kastern couch
es, who heretofore have gazed down
with rather lofty disdain on Hint piny,
Tim Knst for years has looked as
kance nt the forward pass. It lias
been regarded as u last ditch resort
to be used only in the lust hull' or

Muldiers won hands down. The victory
was directly attributable to clever pass

haw been slow in following suit.
There still seems to be a wide di

the spiral tossing. Its opponents say
that it Is too dangerous, that under the
present rules loss more often results

that it Is too (iiick that the whole

they liken it to stock market unoculii-

Ten Sons Is Contribution
of One English Mother
By Wilbur S. Forrest. I
(United Press Staff Correspondent.) i
London, Sept. 10. (By mail) The'
mother's record (n this war is held by 1
Mrs. Mary Fury, of Loughrea, county
Galway, Ireland. I
She has given ten sons to the British 1
army. Five are dead in France. One!
lies in a hospital recovering from
wounds. One is a prisoner in Germany.
One remains fighting and another is
nursing a right arm shattered by a bul
let. This is not all of Mrs. Fury's fight
ing family. She has a daughter, Mrs.
Mary Cosey, Romford, England. Mrs.
Oosey'g husband is one of Rumford's
2000 fighting men at the front. Sev
eral weeks ago, Mrs. Cosey supported
her large family of small children with
the aid of two brother-in-laws. Now
they have gone to war and she is strug
gling on alone.
What Mrs. Mary Fury and Mrs. Mary
Cosey have suffered in England's great
est crisis is the story of hundreds of the
working classes in the British Isles. A
similar story ran be told in a smaller
way from the mansions of British aris
tocracy and from fhe "castles" of the
middle classes. But it docs not leave
the sting of poverty that confronts
Mrs. Mary Fury, of County Galway and
her sisters of the lower classes. She
will suffer until her body is planted in
Irish soil and with her, thousands of
other women whose husbands have left
the spade and shovel.
If conscription comes in Great Britain
it will not find the husbands, brothers
and sons of the Mary Furys and Mary
t'oseys among the "slackers."
The laboring element is becoming
gradually the scarcest element in Brit,
ain. Cities, towns and villages alike
have emptied their houses and streets.
These men nre today in the majority in
Northern France, Tho Dardanelles and
other theatres of war. The upper and
middle classes are in the hopeless num

and shops built closely together. The
war office has distributed eards of
honor for every family that sends a
man to the army. There are 195 cards
of honor in the windows of these lit

with cocked hats and wooden guns in
the narrow street.' About half of them
will never see their fathers again. They
will go into the factories their fathers
left as Boon as their arms are strong
The war has brought all British
classes together in the trenches. It
has brought all classes at. home down
to the same plane during the war. But
what is to become of the Mrs. Furys
and Mrs. Coseys after the -war, is a
question that is hard to answer.
