Rugby, English counterpart of American football will be the subject of a film which will soon be released. Said by the film company to be the world’s oldest sport a picture has been planned which will trace its development from 500 B.C. to the present time. Pete Smith, sport’s authority, will be the narrator. Rugby may well be an old sport but lacrosse, a form of basketball and polo can be traced to a much earlier date.
