"Scientific boxing as taught to the
cadets in the R. o. T. C. is of utmost
importance when the men take up bay-.
onet practice," said Dr. George A.
May, director of Waterman gymnas-
ium, in an interview yesterday after-
noon. "The different thrusts, the
quickness to take the offensive and de-
fensive, and the various spars in bay-
onet fighting is merely an outgrowth
of the sound principles of boxing.
"The 'guard' position makes the
man prepared for the attack; the
long front' or body thrust, enables the
soldier to get his man; the shifting
by the boxer to a left or right for his
opponent't head is similar to the
stroke made by the soldierdwhen he
brings the butt of his gun down in a
smashing stroke aimed at the same
spot; and the blocking or brushing his
opponent's blow to one side with a
motion like that with which the sol-
dier parries his enemy's thrust for the
body constitutes the principle move-
ments. The men haven't been taught
the right or left uppercut, which is
not unlike the movement made by the
soldier in dropping the butt of his gun
and thrusting the bayonet up at his
enemy's throat.
Train 200 Men at One Time
"More than 200 cadets are given in-
structions in boxing every afternoon,"
continued Dr. May. "But the value of
boxing does not stop with its close re-
lationship to the science of bayonet
fighting. It goes a great deal further
than that, for one of its chief claims to
consideration is the fact that it teaches
the recruit to face hand-to-hand com-
bat without shrinking.
"The talent developed has been re-
markable, and while this is commend-
able, it is not the end sought. We
are attempting to produce a whole
army of men who can go into a bruis-
ing, hand-to-hand fight, keep their
eyes open and their brain alert for
the instant when they see the opening
for the finishing thrust.
Amateur Vs. Professional
"The main difference between an
amateur and a professional is that
the professional has the ability to use
what he knows on the spur of the
moment. The amateur has to let some
time elapse before he realizes the op-
portunity that presents itself. That is
the kind of a thing we are trying to
teach the R. . T. C. men.
"A man either kills the enemy or
he kills him. If a man attempts to
cover ap, his enemy will certainly ac-
complish his purpose. The only way
to prevent him from doing it is to get
him first to go into him with every
ounce of force, intent on making the
first thrust a fatal one, and failing in
that, following it up determined to
make the next one count."
The women's athletic exhibition will
