The boys of a junior high school were going to organize their basket ball team. All wanted to be the captain.
The argument became heated, only one boy, Robert, was willing to give up to someone else. He took the ball & entered the gym & practiced throwing for the goal, while the other boys argued in the hall.
After a half hour their coach appeared upon the scene & saw the situation. He said, "Well, we will settle it this way, each boy take ten throws for the basket & the one who makes it the greater number of times is captain."
"O. K.," they all had to agree.
Robert came out on top & was appointed captain.
