Excerpt from Learning to Play Field Hockey

Field Hockey is played in Great Britain by both men and women, but not in mixed teams, nor in mixed competition. In the United States its activities are confined principally to girls' colleges and schools. Nearly all of the American women's institutions of learning devote much time to the game. Interest in it is spreading to the high schools, when the latter have a sufficient playing area, either on the school ground or in parks. In Philadelphia, for instance, there is an organized league of clubs whose members learned field hockey at college and who keep up their interest in the game much as do the women of Great Britain in; county and similar teams.

In the milder climate of the British Isles it is possi ble to play hockey from autumn until early summer. In the United States the playing period is confined principally to autumn, although it would be quite easy to hold a supplementary season in spring time. The Ladies' Field of London, a weekly periodical, den votes much space to Field Hockey in addition to the great variety of other subjects that specially interest women. It published recently a series of articles on learning to play field hockey, by Mr. Eustace E. White, sports editor. So thoroughly did these treat of the game that the publishers of Spalding's Athletic Library made arrangements with the author and Ladies' Field to reproduce them in book form for the benefit of field hockey players in the United States.
