Before another week is over the critics
mill have an opportunity to pass judgment
on the revised football code. The rules
committee will meet on Friday at the Mur
ray Hill Hotel, and inasmuch as there are
st least a thousand and one suggestions
which must be considered, no definite con
clusions will be reached in all probability
until late Saturday, if then. It will be no
easy task to revise the rules in a way to
make the game less dangerous and to
satisfy the Insistent demand of those who
think only of and exaggerate the evil con
sequences, with little or no thought for
the good. Those who champion the cause
of football are numbered in the thousands,
but their voices are stilled to a large ex
tent.in the face of an indictment, •which.
while too severe, perhaps, is nevertheless
strong enough to have aroused a general
demand for reform which must be satisfied.
Poo; hall must be made safer, else football
mill be abolished in many schools and col
leges throughout the country. This is
something more than a threat— it is a
promise made by the governing boards of
hundreds of institutions— and in view of
this the members of the rules committee
will -wrestle with the difficult problem with
full • knowledge of their responsibility.
There will be no effort to evade the
question; each one realizes that a crisis
has been reached and each one will work
earnestly with the single purpose of sav
ing a great and virile game.
On* member of the rules committee paid
to me a few days ago that he had been
walking with the. rules, eating with the
rules and sleeping with the- rules so long
that he welcomed the opportunity to do a
little punching and prodding just to get
♦yen. He added that he hated to suggest
what th« rules would look like If the more
radical reformers had a chance to do a
little pummelling, and that he would not
answer for them even after those who. at
least, are more or less friendly had finished
the mauling. AH Joking aside, the same
man said that while ever:.' effort would be
made to preserve the general character of
the game, he looked for a number of radi
cal changes which would satisfy, for the
time being. s>t least, the clamor for a less
strenuous ■port. Theoretically, at least,
th«? game will be modified, he continued,
but ■whfn questioned along what particular
Hbosj he remarked eagely: "Ask Walter
< amp or come of the others."
From what Walter Camp lias written and
MM. from what developed at the meeting
cf the Intercollegiate Athletic Association
of the United States in this city three or
four weeks ago and from what can be
gleaned from other source;-, the rule gov
erning the use of the forward pass is cure
to be radically changed. Borne of the rule
makers, no doubt, will hold out for its
abolition, but. as suggested In this column
shortly after the season closed, the chances
•re that it will be retained, although limit
ed to use behind the line of scrimmage.
•with tome adequate protection for the man
receiving the balL This in itself will make
it possible for the second line of defence to
lend some support to the tackles, who have
V.een forced to bear the- brunt almost sin
gle handed of many plays directed at their
rodtion. In this way one of the chief dan
gers of the game will be eliminated.
Other changes which have been advo
cated by those whose opinions will be re
spected and which are likely to b« ma.de
include: Providing more protection for the
man catching a punt by restricting the &d
vance of the forwards to within five yards
cf the man who is receiving the ball until
it is caught or fumbled; by abolishing the
Üb© of the straight arm in warding off op
posing tacklers, and thus doing away with
a vicious and practically hidden blow with
the heel cf the hand; abolishing the BO
called neutral zone, so as to prevent tie
clash of heavy bodies In motion; restricting
k the men behind the line cf scrimmage to
1 the backs, to prevent boom heavy line man
J being brought back to head a tandem play;
limiting to some extent offside interference,
which according to many is the root of
many evils; preventing pulling and pushing
■( a. player when tackled, and adopting
fv«n more stringent rules against piling up
and other forms of undue roughness.
Walter Camp has suggested In a number
f.f articles recently that it might be well to
increase the distance to be gained by rush
ing in midflcld. but to Kale it down as the
hall approaches the goal line, and inasmuch
ss Mr. Camp has been making a careful
study of the question, and his judgment is
lure to bo respected, it seems quite likely
that « chance of that sort will be made.
If the code is amended as outlined, and the
coaches and players carry out the spirit an
well as th" letter of the rules, the game is
bound to be *afer, whereas its chief char
acteristics will not be lost. Other questions
are bound to come up. and a rule may be
framed to prevent absolutely coaching from
the side Hess, which the present rule on
the subject has not accomplished, while the
nsprnsltMiflj of removing exhausted play
ers from th« game may be placed on on«
of the officials or some attending physician,
which it is believed would do much to pre
vent terious injuries.
Personally I am strongly in favor of the
adoption of rules that would bring about
abolition of the ttraight arm in -warding off
'acklers; further protection for the man
catching a punt; prompt removal of ex
hausted players, or those who have been
slightly injured, from the game, regardless
of any protest, and coaching from the tide
:.<-*■ There is just one more suggestion
which I have urged off and on in this col
umn for three years that must be referred
to t^a-in. even though it la of minor import
tance and Is not included In the present in
dictment. Number the players. Make it
possible for the undergraduates and those
who look on to follow the play more close
ly, and thus get added pleasure. Make it
possible also for those whose duty it is to
keep track of the plays to tell how it all
happened, without giving credit to one

for missing a tackle or making a mistake
■rhaa tl-c fault lay with some one else.
Thomas J. Lynch, the new president of
the National Loague, is better prepared
than a week ago to carry out his firmly
M 4 determination to put an end to
umpire halting, so-called, and to free base
ball from unnecessary "kicking" and tire
aMM delays. On his recommendation, no
doubt, the joint rules committee of the two
major leagues, in session at rittsburp lust
week, so amended thf code that the \im
pires will have even more authority than
heretofore. Substitutes on the bench are
now responsible to the autocrat of the dia
mond and may be fined or ordered off the
field Jf they take it upon themseKes to
object to decisions or otherwise cause an
noyance. It is well. If the umpire has used
proper discretion. First and foremost, an
umpire must command the respect of tb«
players and "fans," and that depends more,
on the man than on a dozen and cne rules.
Mr. Lynch, knowing well the requirements,
will use great car*». no doubt, in appointing
his staff. As said before in this column,
the umpire should have absolute authority
on the playing field, but he should not
abuse that authority and then couijt on the
bujiport of the president of the league.
While no radical changes were made in
the baseball playing rules, the revision last
week was of a kind to make for good.
Several knotty problems were cleared up.
and, altogether, the code Is clearer and
less open to different interpretations on
certain rules than ever before. It strikes
me that the argument against putting bat
tery errors In the regular error column,
which led to a rule once passed being re
voked, was not worthy of -much considera
tion. It is true that the pitcher and catcher
handle the ball far oftener than the other
players on the field, but they handle it
with less chance of making an error, and
It is hard to understand why an exception
should be made in their favor. An error
Is an error, whether charged in one place
or the other, and it would have simplified

By a most unfortunate arrangement of
the intercollegiate hockey league schedule
much interest in the remaining games will
be lost. The Princeton seven has won the
championship, with the season not more
than half over. Perhaps those who framed
the schedule counted their chickens too
early and did not give Princeton a win
ning chance, believing that Yale and Har
vard would fight it out, as in recent years.
If so. they made a grievous mistake. The
Tigers well deserved the championship:
they played a reasonably strong and con
sistent game In every match and are open
to congratulation. Kead, Kay and Peacock

BOYS SOON TO TEST AIRSHIP.
Montclair Monoplane Said To Be
Smallest in the World.
Harry Bruno and Bernard H. Mahon, of
Montclair, N. J., who are only seventeen
years old, have constructed what is said to be
the smallest practicable airship of the mono
plane type in the world, and will soon give
their design a test there.
Thft boys worked in secret on the ma
chine, and it was not until yesterday that
they announced the character of the peculiar
features which they expect will make their
Invention a complete success and a distinct
step forward in the science of aviation.
The monoplane has a length of 1 \ Iml
and a. breadth of 14 feet. Its total weight,
including a 12-horsepower gasolene motor,
is only 180 pounds. By the manipulation
of a lever, they Bay, the aviator can keep
the machine on an evtn keel during the
nnst trying winds. The rudder is «r.n
.t rolled by the feet. Ft Is estimated to be
capable of maintaining a speed of from
fifty to rtfty-five miles an hour.
The bojn laßt summer constructed a bi
plane which was to have been operar- 1 i.

tests tlvry found they could not develop

This is a blow at hotel golf organisa
tions; also clubs that, are formed to play
over public links, such as the New York
Golf Club, which has its headquarters at
Van Cortlandt Park, and the Jackson Park
Golf Club, in Chicago. A strict interpreta
tion of the new rule will certainly preclude
organizations of this class from becoming
active members. In other words, only
those that pay, as clubs, something toward
the upkeep of their links and have control
of them are eligible to belong to the voting

That the New- Jersey Automobile" an-f
Motor Club Is keenly alive to the necessity
for changes In some of the. New Jersey an
toraoblle laws is evidenced by the fact that
the legal . committee of the club had d->
gates at Trenton on several days last -\»«<
while the Legislature was in session. Jo
seph, 11. .Wood, of Newark, is chairman ©?
the legal committee of the New Jersey Au
tomobile and Motor Club, and was re«n?T>
elected president of the Associated Automo
bile Clubs of New Jersey.
. That the New Jersey automobile law a*
it now stands is obnoxious to the- rag and
file of the automobile owners of the stat%
has been forcibly demonstrated since it fca^
become known that the police authoriti-s
of the state of Delaware were instructed at
arrest .all .motor vehicle owners or drivers
who did not come within the new reciprocal
automobile la* -of the state. This la- - m
every automor>Hist from every state th*t
permits non-n»3ident motor car owners ♦<>
enter the state without paying registrarict
fee the same rights in Delaware. .The Urc
affects New Jersey motorists because tfc*
present law of this state doe? not pennti
Delaware autcmoblllsts to enter NeT Jersey
without a state license. The law prevails
In Pennsylvania, and at the present ■ tim**
this is the only state which New Jersey a*:
tomoblllsts can enter without payinar.
Pennsylvania, however, has already .pre
pared a draft of a hill that will te submit
ted to the present Legislator* making i"
obligatory for a reciprocal arrangement »-»
The officers of the New Jersey Automobi 1 *
■■d Motor Club say they expect no difficulty
in having the law changed in this respect.
In the opinion of W. C. Leland. general
manager of the Cadillac Motor Car Com
pany, of Detroit, motor car manufacturer*,
more than owners and drivers, axe to b*
censured for the automobile smoke nuisan«"s
which officials of many cities are endeavor
ing, almost in vain, to abate.
"The city authorities, no matter how vigi
lant they may be or how strongly backed
by law and ordinance, cannot put an en<
to the nuisance. says Mr. Leland; "nor
can the driver of the car, in the majority of
cases. The manufacturers themselves ar^
responsible for the cars which cough sno'i^
with. every piston stroke of the engine. :
"The fault ninety-nine times in a fcindrM
in with the car's oiling system. It is causel
by one of two things. Either the ill fittfc?
parts of : the engine require an excess!*;'*
amount of lubricant, which Is burned with
each explosion of gas. or the system <*
faulty in that the operator is powerless t*
regulate the flow of the oil to h!s cylinders
and- crank case. In either case the. result «
the same— a smoking exhaust
For years we have used on Cad: C3rs
an engine oiling system which has. focal
favor with other manufacturers— the splash
system. The result is that there is no rea
son for our cars smoking. The oil is f?4
into the crank case through a. slight fe*J.
and the operator's control is absolute.
"As each cylinder is fired the splasher en
the lower end of the connecting rod dip*
down into the oil supply In the crank mm
and splashes it over the bearings, up Into.
the cylinders— all moving parts. Nl^N 1^
oil penetrates into the firing chamber of ***
cylinder except that actually needed f>r
lubrication and carried there by the piston.
It will bo readily seen that there is no
chance for the exploding gas to bum th«
oil and produce smoke: also, that the oper
ator of the car has his otl supply under
complete control at all time?."
Lewis K. Spear, president of the Ameri
can Automobile Association, in one of his
periodical visits to the organisation's head
quarters in this city on Saturday brought
the official news that the Automobile Lent
Association, of Boston, with a membership
of more than three thousand, had been ad
mitted at a. special meeting held on Janu
ary 24 to the Massachusetts. State Automo
bile Association. This acquisition to t*i«
Massachusetts state body will make it se?>
ond in the national list in numerical
strength," and the Automobile Legal Asso
elation also becomes the largest unit cf or
