WATER POLO TEAM DISBANDS
Little Interest in Sport Among

doubtful whether Columbia will be repi "
sented in its intercollegiate contests l.y a
water polo team unless memhers of th?

vacancies in the water polo combination.
The first meet of the year Is to be held

in Atlantic City. This was the final strolw
which brought about Rnrker's resitgnatlofl
In making known his retirement the
water polo captain said that th.? s;
at Its lowest ebb In Columbia and that at
? no this fall has it been possible to
get together the members of the squad a!
any one time in order to have a regular
practice. Under Norman C. I?, ?'ox, the
Australian swimmer, the swimming team
at Columbia this *'cr?r promises to be one of
the best that tlie Blue and White lias ever
had. COS Is also coach of the water polo
squad, but for some reason or other he ha?
been unable to have a working squad of

CAVAN? ON FOOTBALL
Dartmouth Coach Has His Say
on Changes in the Rules.
Prank W. Cavanaugb, roach last fall of
the Dartmouth football eleven, which made
such a good showing in its games with
Princeton sad Harvard, mad?- some sug*
gestions for changes in the football r ilss
at a dinner of Dartmouth alumni in Chi?
cago on Wednesday evening. Incidentally
he criticised Walter Camp, Vale's athletic
mentor, by contending that the well known
football "-"-legist was twenty years be?
hind Ihe times, and too much of a domi?
nating factor when it comes to a revision
of the co.le. Mr. Cavanaugh said.
"Tho rules as they stan.l now conflict.
There are instancea in the present coat
where actual < ontradictions occur. These
should bo so edited and changed that there
could be no misundcrstntnling. I do not be
!? ? ?? that the forward pass Is a good thing
in itself, but It has Indirectly ?lone a won?
derful thing for the gain?. It ha? mad.. It
moro sdentlflc, taken away the old monot?
ony of plugging the Une. Yet careful study
has brought around a state of affairs where
the defence is atronger than the offence
"In my opinion, Walter ?'amp, of Yale,
is twenty yean behind the times The day
Is coming wli.-n he will no longer he the
dominating factor Just because he Is Walter
Camp. Now he sng-csts the. rule-, goes
into the committee room with a couple of
members, and th" rubs ar? changed as he
Buggeats. But the spirit of th.e game has
rone beyond him His Ail-American Be*
tlon and that ..r Casper Whitney's will not ?
h' i insider? I so ail Important when the
college ?..rid wakes up.
"if I were ,-i?k?ii ?""herein the game could
be lmprov.-.i I would say Increase the num?
ber of downs to four and the distance to be
gained from ten to twelve or iifteen yards.
That would ein give the offence three
?liatiies to break away on a long run, and'
tho distance would be enough to eliminate
fe., plugging gama < ?r I would suggest
ti n the backa be allowed to run before th.?!
bail is passed, allowing a forward p??
bind th?. line. Either ?>f these chang? ? !
would five !:?? better team the chance to
Win, us It should do."

No feature in the modern automobile la
moro appreciated by the owner than the
ability of his car to climb tho Pfiffest
gra.:??s, for he has th?> knowledge that the
way lies open for all sorts of touring. Hill
climbing has long been an asset of Bulck
can, and it has been steadily developed.
For two or three years the local concern
has been ?brnonBtratlng on the steep hill??
at the northern end of the city, and their
explolnts have been remarkable.
Recently. In the desire to Und something
harder than Fort George hill and the
other public thoroughfares in the vicinity,
A. L. Newton, salea manager of ?h?- com?
pany, discovered a grade that excels all
others as a test. It runs off Fort Qeorgl
hill, and at tlrst glance appears to be in
aurmountahle. Last Tuesday Mr. Newton
took lotno newspaper men to the grade to
show his latest discovery. Nearly all were
willing to wager that no car could get up
the hill, and only one was found with
trnough mrve to sit with the driver while
the run was made.
With a start of only a few yards, the
Ilttlo ear, selling at $M0, started for the
grado and went up and over it. Three
times it was brought back and the feat re?
peated. Undoubtedly the grade is ?15 per
cent, a.id in one place It is even more. It
is "so steep that when the wheels were
locked midway of the hill, half a dozen
men were unable to prevent the car slip?
ping to the bottom. Mr. Newton says it is
the steepest bank ever selected for euch a
