The primary purpose of this study is to determine some factors to eliminate injuries in high school sports; as far as possible, effectiveness of superior, normal and subnormal intelligence quotients of of boys is learning to select fundamental muscular skills when the material is present.
The main factors are to determine the relationship between success in physical education and attitude. Injuries can be eliminated through good leadership and sportsmanship.
The questionnaire method of collecting data was used since it seemed to be the most logical method to employ and; also, because the distance of the school from one another made visitation impossible. Questionnaires were sent to thirty high schools of the state with the request that they be turned over to the head of the physical education department. The principals were asked to fill them out if the schools had no physical education program.
Other sources from which information concerning this study were obtained included several textbooks written by leaders and authorities in the field of physical education, official bulletins of the state department of education, current periodicals and personal interviews.
The mailing list for the questionnaire was made up from the official list of high schools of the Texas Interscholastic League of Colored Schools. The author found many similar studies of physical education in the high schools of the United States and Texas to be somewhat similar. The questionnaire method of research was found to be the one most widely used and accepted.
