Excerpt from Fair Play a Play for Boys in Two ActsScene. - The training-room in Rockby School gym. Late afternoon. Door and window closed.(As the curtain rises, "Warhorse" McGeely, the football coach is discovered talking with Captain Bob Campbell and Harry Painter, the quarter-back. McGeely stands down L., pointing at the blackboard on which he has just diagrammed a play by numbers, lines, etc. Campbell sits at right side of table down R., tilting back his chair. Painter stands R., back of table, hands in his blazer pockets, studying the blackboard carefully.)McGeely (tapping the board). Say, do you get this? - 6, 16, 87, 11? Eh?Campbell. Go on, Warhorse, old top, we had that fossil read, learned, inwardly digested and forgotten way back in Second Form days! What do you think the Fardales are - infants! (Hums impatiently to himself.) Oh, Casey Jones on a stormy night, tried to get to Heaven on the tail of a kite -Painter. Cut it out, Bob! (To McGeely.) I see. That's to be tried only on fourth down and a lot to gain. The Fardale fellows have the very pink of a back-field, though, when its comes to handling punts.McGeely. That's it, Painter, exactly! Never try a kick or this trick, here (tapping board), till you've reached fourth down and bucked your halves and full-back to pieces on a stone-wall line that won't bend or break! Get me? Say, Bob, cut the high stuff, can't you! What do you think this is?Campbell (humming). The kite string broke and Casey fell! He didn't go to Heaven, but he tumbled - down a well! I said I understood the play all right. Show us something real!About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
