The men who play the game as a rule know a trifle more about what is wanted than the bloated stockholder who sits in the director's box and watches the game, while he sips his wine and puffs his Havana. It is a long lane that has no turn, and the players have kept straight ahead down the lane until they have at least caught sight of the turn. There are some pretty level headed players throughout the country, and if the managers do not keep a pretty sharp look out they will get the toot and the persecuted players will band themselves together and take the business into their own hands.
