Members of the executive committee

Tennis Association gathered III annual
session at the Waldorf-Astoria yeslcr

meeting. The confabulation was started
early In the afternoon, anil In the wee
ma' hours this morning the solons were
still busy at their task. As the session
was recret only n hint lists :trid thcr
cave an Inkling ns to what wis qolnS" n.
The committee approve! t!u inn.lng
list for l'Jl; as submitted by the ranking
committee, headed by Clinton I.. Vhlldfc
of Pittsburg. No definite news as t the
personnel of the llrst ten couW be ob
tained. The list and other data paused
on will be Issued to-day by Paul Will
lams, field secretary of the two 'ntlon.
It was regarded as somewhat slarltl
cant that of the twenty member of the
executive committee only nine, nil Has,

A New Doable System.
The committee argued long over the
proposition to abolish the prereui ry
It'll of deciding the national ilouble-j
tltbuar.d Institute n tournament t-lmi.ir
tWl In singles. It was sabl Hint the
members had decided to submit the n. w
Idea to tho annual meeting of the n.-o.
eiatlon here In February. If the ch-tige
Is made It will mean the ablatio, i of tho
sectional doubles and the challenge
match for the championship, which has
been played In conjunction wlt'i thu slr.
Arguments similar to those which
brought about the playing through sys
tem In the national singles were ad
vanced by supporters of the new doubles
proposition. It Is conceded that doubles
play In this country Is In need of n tre
mendous Impetus and that that feature
of tennis has been neglected sadly. An
open tournament for the doubles title Is
likely to develop greater stability and
permanence In the make up of teams. It
Is the continual changing of partnern
more than any other factor that Is re
tarding doubles progress.
If the delegates do not accept the
open doubles Idea they will bo asked to
create new divisions for sectional
doubles. However, the old doubles sys
tem Is doomed that's almost a fore
Precedent for llntlnic Jap.
It was reported that In pursuance of
ft ruling by President Adce that Ichlya
Kumattae, tho Japanese conqueror of
Billy Johnston, was cllgblle for rank
ing, tho committee had placed him on
the Hat, and that he was numbered
among the first ten. While It was
pointed out that In 1903, the Dohertys
nnd Dr. Plm were not ranked, even
though they had great succese here and
Hugh Doherty won the national title,
precedent for tho rating of foreign play
The first foreign expert In the Amort
'can ranking list was M. F. Ooodhody of
Ireland, who was beaten by Hob Wrenn
for the title In 194 and was rated third.
In 1KD7 W V Kates, II. A, Nlst.t and
IT. H. Mahony of IIiiKland, after a cam
paign here, wcry ranked among the first
ten. Kumagae will very likely be found
In seventh plare, behind Dick Williams,
Johnston. l.indley Murray. Oeorgn M,

The committee hail a lengthy struggle
with the foot fault rule and tlnal decision
In that matter will probably rest with the
delegates at the annual meeting. Will
lam A. Iirncd proposed that the present
rule bo retained, hut that the foot fault
Jtldgo be given the option of calling a
fault a let. It would then rest with the
Judge to use his discretion as guided by
the Importance) of the match.
Anintenr Question I'n.
Whethtr the committee had made nny
Tadlcal chances In the proposed ama
teur rule could not be learned, but In
substanco the change will very likely be
similar to that onnounced some time ago
by President Adee. No matter what
the executive committee thinks of the
proposition It can do nothing tlnal.
Adoption of such legislation requires the
VOto of the association as a whole.
It Is known that new and firmer pro
test ngalnt tho o',aus which would
make Ineligible those who sell tennis
and other i-portlng goods has been made
by the Pacific Coast Association. That
hody Is evidently determined to stand
behind Mcl.oughlln, tlundy, Johnston
and Strachan, who would ht affected.
Julian S. Myrlck's set of regulations
to govern entrance Into the national sin
gles was talked over at length. Myrick
would permit all players who have been
lankeil, those who have done well in at
least three tournaments under tae di
rection of the national association ami
foreigners whose entry Is sanctioned by
tho national body to play for the title,

hard to get him to stay at least another
season. However, Hankhart has his
business career to consider. If he does
stay In the coaching business It will be
only to accept n position at Dartmouth
or some other big university. Mories of
dissatisfaction with Frank Cavanaugh's
work at Dartmouth have come down
from Hanover, hut It Is Impossible to
trace them to a responsible source. Cav

has two more years to run.
Dletz has had great success In coach

being made to have him reconsider his
decision to come Kast. The Indian was
a great player at Carlisle nnd proved a

BRAID, GOLF PEER,
Scotland's Foremost Player
Killed While Trying (
Hoard Moving Train.
Death has broken up a golf trlum-1
vlrate which ruled the world. James
llrald, Scotland's greatest exponent of ,
the royal and ancient gune, was killed i
In London yesterday while trying tu J
board a fhhvlug train at Waterloo Sta-,
tlon. He was thrown backward and
fell nn his head. He died on the way
to the hospital. '
Harry Vardnn, J, II, Taylor and Urald
were considered the greatest golfers the
sport ever knew. Among them they won i
sixteen Ilritlsh open championships,
Urald and Taylor each winning five nnd
Vardon six. Times unnumbered these'
three sterling players met In links bat-
ties nnd always the uncertainty of I

Urald was considered invincible, but In
the Inst six ears Vardon nnd Taylor
have advanced nnd have somewhat'
dimmed the lustre of the famous Scotch-1
Horn nt Klfeshlre, Scotland. In 1S70,
llrald received his golf education on the
famous dullane links. He won his club,
champ'.onsh.p while only 16 years old.,
He competed In many local tournaments
with success, nnd finally was persuaded I
to try for the open championship In
l&ni. In this event llrald played against !
Vardon, Taylor and II. II. Hilton, the
famous Hrltlsh amateur, mid wog
handily, tmiiti to the astonishment of(
the Ilritlsh golf world.
In the semi-final round of the 1911 ,
event, which was played over the Mulr
Held links, (lullane, Scotland, in June,
1901, Vardon eliminated Taylor 'and
llrald won from Hilton, leaving Vardon
and Urald to contest for the title. Taylor
was the playing through champion at
the time and Vardon was the ruunerup
of the year before, so llrald's chances
were not highly considered. Hut he sur
prised all the next day by taking the
measure of Vardon. llrnld's prodigious

course records established at St,
Andrews ami several other Hrltlsh links
still stand as monuments to his wonder

more to his skill with the clubs than to

guard consisted of August Herrmann,
who occupies the dual role of chairman
of the National Commission nnd presi
dent of the Cincinnati Nnllonnl League
Herrmann came to New York by way
of Pittsburg, where he attended an Llk
dinner on Thursday night. He Intends
to visit Hoston for another Hlk affair
before the National league's lioard of
directors convenes here next Tuesday
The chairman of the National Com
mission was In n cheerful mood, and
readily discussed the entire baseball
situation, particularly the relations be.
tween the club owners and pla vers. "I
cannot conceive of such n thing lis it
baseball strike growing out of snlaty
reductions or minor league matters,"
Same Plners to ;m linren.e..
"I believe the average ball player can
inncelxe that salary reductions were
bound to rome. Hp knows that salaries
were artificially Intlalcd during the Fed
eral League war ami that he was paid
more than the business could nffoid to
pay. The only thing which will happen
Is that baseball will now return to nor
mal, sane conditions. While the salaries
of sonic of the star players would be
sliced, a large number of young players
will be given tidy Increases. I know on
my club epilte a few of our young pla v.
ers have been granted substantial lii
creases in salary.
"In other words, the cut In salaries
will not lie a general nil around reduc
tion, but merely the lowing off of some
topheavy salaries which hail been paid
to players by reason of nrtltlclal condi
tions," Herrmann expressed an opinion that
both the major leagues would tak up
the OUeStfoil .if rnfunnlnn tU ...,.1.l
series at their meetings next week.
i ne commission ilia not discuss the
world's series at Its recent Chicago
meeting, as e had our hands full with
the new contracts and other matters,"
ChniiKr In sislem .Needed.
"Hoeer. there is no dcning that the
club owners of both leagues are of the
opinion that the system of -'i::nliig the
world's series i-im!d undergo quite a
change, particularly as to the division of
the receipts. Peisonally I believe theru
should be ou- ehansa, but I not me-
, pared tw .i loht ihn players should get
Itvs money. It i, lny opinion that the
j question will be an Imi-ortant one at
both big league meetings."
j Herrmann was in such nn affable mood
' Ci.it he freely discussed the campaign
rthldi Harney Hreyfin-s .if Pittsburg l
(waging to remove him ns chairman of
iu iviiiiiiiri-iMu. i fhw .Mr. i;ieyius
for only nbout five minutes In Pitts
burg." said Harry. "He wns not ftellng
well and did not attend the Klks dinner
on Thursday night. I had quite a chat
with him over the phone. As far as
lreyfuss's fight against the commission
Is concerned I do not think It Is against
me particularly but against tho i-ntlro
membership of the National Commis
sion." Discussing his Cincinnati team, Herr
mann smilingly jetnarked. "A usual we
look good In the winter time. Our club
really isn't nt all bad and we have quite
a few pl.t) ers of ability. Matheuson
wants n few positions strengthened,
after which lie thinks he wl.l have a slua
whli-h will be able to stand up with the
best in the league.
"Matliensoti, but the way. Is very solid
In Cincinnati and the fans hao" every
confidence In him. Matty doesn't talk
much and so far he hasn't fed the fans
, with a lot of promises. He Intends to
let his results speak for Mm. Kvery-
, body Is with Mathewson. the fans, the

all fee that he will be the ni.lt! who will

National Commission Takes
Drastic Action in lied
Sox Must Pay.
I OTIIEItS ARE PAHDONED
A bulletin of the National Commis
sion sent out from Cincinnati yesterday
shows that n wholesale number of fines
had been plistcrei on barnstorming i
players last fall. In all fifty-one piny-
ers, members of thirteen of the sixteen
hlg league teams, were taxed from $25
to $100 for exhibiting themselves after
the regular season In semi-professional
parks for winter pocket money.
Howcter, the wholesile fining was In
tended primarily as a warning, ns the
fines of thlrty-elcht players were sus- '
pended. Those of thirteen others, mostly I
members of the world's champion Hos-!
ton Ited Pox team, stand. The commls-1
sloil was especially Incensed against the !
Hoston plaxers. -as there has been a,
rule In effect for several years prohibit
ing world's champion teams from doing

ers the commission gives n warning that
If these plaers lire guilty of any further ,
violation of. the rules relative to exhlbl- '
lion sanies they will be more severely!
dealt with. Their orUlnal lines will'
stand and much heavier ones added. '

Plaers hae been fined before fori
taking pait In exhibition games, but
never has the l Oinmlsslon conn; out I
wl'li anything like the drastic number i
of tines Inflicted this fall. These fines 1
will Irritate the present relations of the'
players and the commission, ns the j
Plaers Fraternity, through Its presi
dent, Daxe Fultz. already has denied
he rlsht of the commission to fine
players for parti loatlng In games after
their contracts had expired.

The fines on the Hoston Americans
came as tin' result of a game played at
New- Haven, Conn., in violation of the
rule against members of the world's
champions pljjlug in games after the
close of the season Parry did no: play,
b'lt managed the team thit did play.
Davis was lined n the manager of a
team which p!acd In various Kastern
'.ties, but the lne of the remainder of
the tcmil were suspended because I; wns
broui.lit out In the testimony tint Davis
hail assured his teammates that he had
tl. word of President Johnson of the
American league that there would lie
no otllclal objection to the team playing.
'I lie commission states tlut President
Johnson simply advised Davis to take
up tho matter with the chairman of the
i ommlsiin, which, aicording to the
ilialrinan. he failed to do. The chair
man, Au.-ust Herrmiun, states that had
Davis uuen the matter up with him a
refusal to play would have been the only
possible ruling. Player Younir was lined
for playing with a team In the Bist
after the dlsbandment of the Canadian
tourists, while Ty Cobb was fined on ac
count of his having taken part In the
came at New Haven against the Hoston

committee which will map out the policy
for next year and select a head conch
and advisory coaches. Sanford H. White,

Within the next two or three weeks
this committee will select a coach nnd
several assistant coaches. Their action

probable he will be selected by the com
mittee. His corps of assistants will probably
be changed. The football schedule. It Is
expected, will have some Important
changes from the list of teams thlf

Having taken .1 day to digest the tlx
pages of typewritten buckshot which
Col. Jacob Huppert, president of the
Yankees, fired lu Ills direction last
Thursday morning, Dave Fultz, presi
dent of the Players' Fraternity, stepped
up to the plate yesterday and with the
aid of his trusty typewriter hammered
out his version of the Keating and
Vance affair, li.-ne s.is Huppert mis
understood him, but gives the Ynnkee
owner quite a dig when he remarks,
"The skirts of the New York club,
howeter, are pot entirely clean."
Ftiltz's statement follows:
"In Col. Huppert's statement published
Thursday morning lie shows that he has
entirely Inst the iwlnt of one of the
Fraternity's tequests filed with the Na
"He would make It appear that we
have charged the New York club with
having been unfair to Its Injured players.
Wo havn done nothing of the kind' and
we strongly oppose this attempt to
cloud the Issue. Our request asked
simply that clauses empowering clubs
tn suspend without pay players who had
been Injured 011 the field should be
eliminated, The commlsMon denied that
It had knowledge of nny contracts con
mining suiit ci.ui.-e, mid lequested us to

the contracts nf John Henry nnd Hay

clause, but made no charge whatsoever
that these players had been misused.
Such 11 charge would hate been ex

that Col. Huppert has gained aiiv such
