Front at Sixth Street
By Charles Dunklcy
Detroit,. lk<c. 31. (AP) - .The
greatest*,ni;uj athlol.ie program in
Amerloitt) 'cojfogev history was
launchttil today in the interest of
physical, fitness; and wartime mor-
ale. . ' -•1
The intensive program was de-
manded of the nation's football
coaches and athletic leaders by
Elwc^id A. Geiges of Philadelphia,
newly appointed executive to
Johri B. Kelly, United States, dl
rector of physical fitness.
Geiges jolted the-athletic lead-
ers into action by declaring that
the physical condition of the na-
tion's men was deplorable; that
50 per cent of those selected for
military service could not be ac-
cepted because of their subnor-
mal condition, and that It was
time" the cAlleges and universities
realized the importance of "com-
pulsory competitive and non-com-
"tinloss .the deplorable physical
defects are corrected.' 'Geigses
warned, "our military and" naval
forces will1,be. unnecessarily ham-
pered in the creation of an effi-
cient fightlpg machine."
Goiges* demand was for com-
pulsory physical education and
athletics for all students ' so they
would be prepared for the" ''isror..
of military duty, when find if
Geiges .carried his demand to
the college physical education as-
sociation, which is meeting here
concurrently with the National
Collegiate Athletic association
and the American Football Coaelif
CfT"association- His ptfens call fr>t
expansion rather than abridge-
ment of college athletics.
In response, the athletic lead-
ers ;— who -cattle to Detroit with
a wartime question program of
"what Will be government ex-
jWl't us to-do?" " pledged whole-
