te to the athletics of this section, who
rill be advised to start training at once.
Another matter of Interest that occu
pied the attention of the delegates nt
)t night's session was the fact that
there Is Inadequate facilities for the
proper encouragement of track and Held
ithletlts here. It Is a known fact that
(jure are few places where tho boyE
nay gather and train. In this great
city there should be plenty of vacant
ipots where an up-to-date athletic Held
could he developed. Point Breeze couriw
ind the one at Central Park are the
enly ones here track sport may be pro
moted for open competition. Surely there
Jj tome one who can come to the aid
cf the runners and Jumpers and give
them a place to enjoy the social, as well
physical, benefits. At the two parks
tamed mtoxlcntlm? liquors are so!d, nnd
there was a petition filed last night ask
ing the ReRltr.ition Committee to refuse
a sanction for games held at such places.
Action was deferred until tho Incoming
BegUtratinn Committee sets to work.
As was expected, there was no opposi
tion to the re-election of last year's of

SWAItTHMOIlE, Pa., Sept. 22.-Tho
first workout of tho season waB given
the Garnet squad this morning, when
moro than K candidates reported to
Coaches Gleg and Dr. Mercer. Only light
work was Indulged, A scrimmage will
bo held Thursday.
Seven, of last year's team reported and
It will take some hustling on the part
of the new candidates to win places. Tho
place which Is causing tho most anxiety
on the part of the coaches Is centre, as
a new man will have to bo doveloped
before tho first game with Vlllanova,
October 3, The material Is accredited by
all the coaches and Captain Ben Cllma
as being the best to enter college In
many years. Many of the now men nro
entering ,wlth excellent records which
promise success for tho season.
Tho slogan Is to "neat Pennsylvania"
on October 31 and then on to Haverford
as the big objective point on November
21. This Is the first clash between these
old Quaker rivals In ten years and
Haverford will be looking for revengo
for tho defeat of 1301.
Tho University of Virginia will make
Its first appearance In this section for
many years when It comes to Swarth
more, November 14. Revenge will be Its
aim also, as the game of 1911 resulted In
a victory for Swarthmoro, 9 to 8.
Since Coach Bob Maxwell will have
four veterans from last year to begin
with In Pete Hunter, "Jud" Endlcott,
"Pat" McGovern and "Tom" McCabe,
txvo ends must bo developed. Captain
Clime, MacKlssIck and "Porky" Murch
form a nucleus for the back field. These

Bond salesmen who have been permit

Thero has, In fact, developed such a
fairly brisk demand, In a small way, for
various classes of securities, thnt talk
Is heard among tho Investment brokers of
having the committees supervising the
sales of securities again lift the ban so
that trading In largor volume may bo per

may be the entering wedge for a move

The commltteees, since their organi
zation by the Stock Exchange and by
bond houses dealing In unlisted securities,
have fixed prices ns of July 30 as the
basis upon which transfers shall be b.isedt
Salesmen, however, find a demand for
some of the high-grade Issues nt prices
which nre In many Instances In excess
of those which ruled under the depressing
closing markets. This condition, natu
rally, offers much encouragement to tho
supervising commltttees and to brokers
generally. It Is being used as a bull
argument for some action looking to a
reopening of tho exchanges.
GOLD POOL A FACTOR.
Foreign exchinge, that determining
factor which Is Just now of such great
Importance, still maintains nn easier
tendency and another drop In rates la
looked for soon. Organization of the
JIOO.000,000 gold pool and larger grain and
cotton shipments are having a good
effect abroad and the cables tell of an
easier and bettor feeling all around.
Effect of the Inauguration of the new
gold pool should accomplish In an arbi
trary manner what has been a matter
of gradual growth during the lost few
weeks. In brief, the object of tho pool
Is to provide a means not only of pre
venting advances In sterling exchange
raten, but of forcing the quotations down
to a workable basis.
First Instalment of the pooled gold to
be collected from the banks will be $25,
non.OOA This will be deposited at first In
New York, and will be transferred to
Ottaxx-a and paid ox'er there to the agent
of the Hank of England In such amount
as, In the ludgment of the committee,
will bo thought necessary.
When gold has been deposited bills will
be Immediately- drawn upon and offered
on the market In sufficient volume to
keep rates on a reasonable basis Hope
Is expressed thnt the net result will be a
prompt building up of sterling exchango
machinery from the complete breakdown
to which it has been subjected.
Head of one of Philadelphia's largo
brokerage houses today received a letter
from a relative In Scotland In which he
was told that employes of one of the

had recently received In their pay en

more work for you until the war Is
over. Your country needs your serv

commented the broker.

CommiBsloil regulation of public utilities
has grown to extensively In the last year
or two that It is now ono of tho most
Important problems with which tho pub
lice Bervlco corporations of the country
ha.vo to deal. Virtually every Stntc In
tho Union has a regulatory commission
of some sort.
These commissions nnd their relation
to Jnvestors and public utility companies
aro discussed In an article In the Maga
zine of Wall Street by Arthur St. George
Joyce, financial editor of the Evbmnq
Ledoer, In which these facts are cm
ohnslzed: "Commission regulation of public
utilities has been discussed from many
angles, and In the final analysis tho Judg
ment of those who know has almost
universally been that whore this regula
tion Is equitably enforced nnd the rcg
ulntory acts nre of a kind which in
spire confidence, both from the general
public and the utilities, such commis
sions are of material benefit to nil con
cerned. "There has been a great deal of regula
tion within the last few years. Figures
show that an average of one State a
month enacted' laws last year creating
theBe commissions. Supervision by State
nnd municipal governments seems to bo
the order of tho day. ' Government
ownership Is talked of In many sections,
and some municipalities have gone Into
the business of operating street railway,
electric light and power plants.
"The utility corporations do not object
to regulation by State or municipality.
On the other hand, they welcome It.
Experience has shown that In most of
the States wherein this supervision Is In
force there has been a desire on the part
of the commissioners to look at condi
tions In a common sense light, nnd give
recognition to the fact that the corpora
tions ns well ns the general public have
rights which ought to be respected.
ACTS CONSIDERED FAIR.
' "On the whole, therefore, the reg
ulatory acts now In force are considered
fair nnd reasonable to both the public
and the public service corporations.
Where regulation Is Just and wisely ad
ministered, there develops a better feel
ing all around and there Is added pro
tection given the companies, the Stato
or municipality, as the case may be,
and the general public. In most of the
States which have commissions, tho one
big advantage to the Investing public
which stands out prominently. Is tho
power of supervision which these com
missions have over the Issuance of
securities by the public service com
panies n dangerous power. Incidentally,
when In the hands of an unskilled or
"It Is mandatory, In these States, for
companies wishing to put on the mnrknt
a security Issue of any sort, to submit
their accounts to Investigation bj the
commissioners. The latter bo carefully
Into the financial condition of the com'
pany to learn If the Issue is xxarr.inteil
and. If so, to see that there Is sulllclent
security behind the Issue to guarantee
protection to Investors who put their
money Into the nexx bonds or notes, or
whatever form of securit may he de
cided upon by the comnnnies In thla
way the Stnte virtually lnclon.es the
securities so Issued. The commission. If
conditions warrant, puts Its approval nn
the securities nnd when they nre tiken
Into the open market nnd traded In. thev
carry not only the Indorsement of n.
reputable utilities companv, hut also the
approval of the Commonxxenlth in xchlrh
the corporation Is chartered. It can be
seen at a glance xxhnt a benefit Is the
operation of such laws, to the public and
to the companies.
JSSl'ANCK OF SKCl-RlTIi:S.
"Ponds having behind them Ihe Indorse,
ment of n repuinhle commission inspire
public confidence to a marked clesrce and
nre more easily dl.iposed nf l-ecause of
this Increased security. Such supei
vlslon by Slate ecmimlssioneis precludes
nlso the possibility of a corporation not
financially sound putting Into the open
mnrket an issue nf secui!t!a which
might result in flmncial loss to in
vestors. "Most of the commissions hnn ylx-eu
ample evidence thai the.x lenllze public
utilities are u natural mnnnpol) , thin
competition, with Us lesulinnt rale unrs,
and In the end Inevituhle combination
usually lesultluc in ovpr-miiit.illzntlon. Is
tar less satisfactory from pxci.x stand
point than the proper regulation nf one
cempany protected during its grnxxth.
For this reason it has been the imllry
111 virtual!) excrx c;te xxliere commis
sions have Jurisdiction, to discourage the
granting of fianchlses to crunpeilng com
panies The final lesult is the protection
of public utility securities, and at the

snys he appreciates that Its full adoption
must be limited to the lnrgest institu

the number of candidates offering them
selves for tho respective courses:
"The establishment of special courses

advantageously bo given In the depart

"The establishment of a separate courso
In llfo Insurance adapted to the needs of

Instruction In this course should be tench

"The establishment of a general course
