1. Bill i a rd s. i 47.-CROSS CANiNONQj. By RISO LEVI (Copyright). I Diagram 637 illustrates %n awkward I placin?ofthebal]?. The only stroke to play j is a cannon off the lOÃde cushion, and thus the I stroke is of the nature of a cross cannon. In the ordinary way, cross cannons with both object balls a considerable distance from the I side cushions are extremely difficult strokes, I DIAGUAM &37.âA cross cannon by means of a. plain I half-ball stroke. Object halls 24 in. from the top cushion and lin, fvoin a side Cushion. Cue ball Sin, from the top cushion and right behind the spot. owing to the very great nicoty of judgment required tOo gauge how full or otherwise the object ball must be taken and also to gauge the a,mount of side with which the stroke should be played. When, however, both object balls are the same distance from the top cushion, as is the case in the position shown on Diagram 637, the cross cannon is gTeatly simplified, for the stroke then requires no side. a-iid, in fact, mnnt be played without side. If a plain-ball stroke is usod and the cue ball is made to strike thi, cushion at a pont which is in a line with the two object b?Is. it naturally follows that the cushion will be struck at a, right angle, and that the cu-e ball will rebound from the cushion at the some angle and cannon on to the second ohjeoe-t. ball. All that the player has, therefore, to do is to ensure the one ball's striking -the side cushion art a point which is in a line with the two object balls. With the three balls to the rifas'iirements given under Diagram 637 n. half-ball stroke will effect this, but with variations of the cue ball's position a thinner than half-ball stroke or a forcing stroke or screw may be required to ensure the riig-ht point on the cushion being struck by th3 cue ball. Whatever kind of stroke has to be used, however, it must be played without any skle. In addition to the cannons in which the cue ball has to travel right across the t:J.,ble'j' there are the cannons in which the cue ban after striking an object ball lying against or close to a cushion has to travel only a short distance across the table in order to reach the fiecond object ball. As these latter strokes are of the same nature as, though far easier than the right-aercss-the-table cannons, they properly belong: to this chapter.
