duties will end then and the question will
arise as to who will enptaln the team on

field commander. This means that he will
play S.o. 3 Instead of his old position
at No. 1
The remainder of the team Is Indicated

substitute because of taking Monte

Stoddard Is picked for No. 1. This leaves

Carl Morris did not have his left Jaw
1 broken In the scrap with Wllli.rd, despite
i tcports to the contrary Morris received
a heavy blow under the left eye In the
I second round, which gradually produced
the big swelling that alarmed some of
the spectators during the tenth round.
.Morris did not call In a surgeon, but ap
plied cracked Ice nnd liniment until the
swelling responded to treatm.nt.
Morris was down hearted yesterday
He admitted that he had mtdo n poor
showing and said that he knew he would
b.. sidetracked by the matchmakers In
future. He declared that Wlllard's stl
completely puzzled him and that he rea!
!7.ed he had much to learn about the box
lug game Manager !lbin wis so con
fident that Morris would defeat Wlllard
that ho had mado arrangements to pit
the Oklahoma giant against Jim Coff.n
of Ireland III the .iardeti on December

course, has been eliminated,
Wlllard's lack of aggressiveness did not
make many friends, so that t.lhsnn said
yesterday that the Texan, too, had been 1
passed up In considering future matches, i
The Morrls-Wlllard affair was a dls.tp- j

This Innovation does not become law

when It Is seen that he has to I ravel liei

Wllh all the precautions taken ih

evi heat winner has received the mark
ho made In winning a heal, even thmigti
he should be abiolutcly unut out of the
money In the actual race. It will require
practical racing to piove whether the new
plan Is a good one, as at first glance It
appears In lie scarcely equitable that a
hurn- which has shown, say, H.04 In win-
nlng .. he.it should be allowed to start In
the 2 i lass In his next race.
A furth, r move was made to discour
age hopples by Introducing a rulo that
hoiscs not w.nriug hopples should receive
three seconds time allowance in addition
to whatever oth.r allowance they may he
i ntttleil to. This handicaps the hoppled
or half hoppled hor nnd may lead to
the discontinuance of the pinctlce whloh
the board tried to git rid of several years
ago. but failed because of the overruling
congiess. Another Innovation is to make
racing fairer by allowing a lior.se, with a
record one second for each y, ar In which
he fails to equal or reduce his record
