CALIFORNIA FOOTBALL CONDITIONS

RUGBY FOOTBALL PLAYER
IS SERIOUSLY INJURED
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. Serious
Internal Injuries received In a Rugby
football game yesterday may prove fatal
for Max Reinhart, Seed 19, captain of
the Santa Clara high school team.
Removed to a hospital at Oakland
from Berkeley, where his team played
the University of California freshmen,
Reinbart's condition Is said to be crit
Walter Camp has arrived in California and will spend several
;weeks in looking over football conditions on the coast. He will de
vote a good part of his time in looking over the Rugby-American
struggle on the coast, visiting California and Stanford, and will in
clude the Los Angeles schools in his inspection. The "Father of
Football" expects to learn many things on this western tour, and
his visit will do a great deal to boom the old style American game to
the detriment of the more dangerous, less interesting concoction of
basketball-tumbling devised by our English cousins.
While he does not wish to declare himself too strongly, it is
plainly evident that Camp is not entirely in sympathy with the new
rules which were recently adopted in New York. He was present at
that important session and was also a delegate to the Cleveland con
ference a few days ago, stopping off there on his western trip.
The world renowned football authority, who is also the football
adviser at Yale, believes that serious trouble will arise under the new
rules for the reason that the officials figure to get themselves into
several kinds of hot water when they are called upon to act on the
imaginary line rulings.
The new rules call for the establishment of four imaginary lines
on the gridiron. The umpire, referee and linemen must watch these
very closely, at the same time keeping their eye on the game itself.
Camp has studied this out very closely and he sees trouble ahead,
not so much for the players, but for the officials. He does not even
attempt to conceal his opposition to this particular section of the new
Like most of the other great football heroes who were reared
with the old American game, Yale's famous director cannot see
Rugby when it is stacked up with the old sport. At the same time,
lie likes Rugby. He understands it, he has made a study of it and he
is in sympathy with it to a certain degree. But—the old game is his
"Much as I admire the game of Rugby, I do not think that the
present generation will ever see it played extensively in the east,"
says Camp. "Of course, some of the athletic clubs may take the
game up, but in my opinion it will never go among the colleges. They
have their good old American game and they like it. The enemies
of the sport have done all in their power to kill it off, but still it's a
greater game than ever it was and it is bound to become greater each
year. ' •..' " '
"There is no question in my mind but that there will be plenty
of complications in the new rules. It will take the veteran college
players some time to get used to them, and in the meantime you may
expect to hear of some queer upsets such as that of the Pennsylvania-
Ursinus game of Saturday. Pennsylvania lost, Bto 5, when anybody
who knows anything about football knows that Pennsylvania figured
to win about 40 to 0.
"The chances are that the Pennsylvania players were puzzled,
perhaps paralyzed, over these new rules. They could not get them
selves together, they could not play their game. They probably had
a fair idea as to what they should do, but when it came time to act,
they were not there. They had the old game down so finely it was so
much a part of their makeup that they could not get away with it.
This is but one of the many peculiar games we shall hear about dur
ing the coming season. .
"While the new rules have been adopted with a view to lessen
ing the danger of injury to the players, I am not so confident that
they will prove a success in this particular respect. While the team
in general probably will not be exposed so much to danger, certain
individual players "must bear the brunt. Of course, this may work
itself out all right in the end, but still severe complications are apt
"There will also be difficulty in deciding about the new tackle
■wherein the man who tackles must have one foot on the ground. In
running the player will have both feet off the ground at times. That
i 9 the difference between running and walking. The only way the of
ficials and myself could see out of the matter was to decide that if the
tackier dragged one toe when he tackles it will be. permissible.
"The new rules eliminate one of the prettiest features of the
old game, -that of the backs running back with the ball. Now the
ends who cannot be interfered with inside of the imaginary twenty
yard' line, can get so far down with a kick that a back will not have
a chance'to %*%%. Plays will be developed that will trap the
opposing side into violations of rules that will result in penalizing
"I do not think that the adoption of the new rules will cause
any loss of interest in college football in the east. The game is
stronger now than it ever was. It will take the public some time
to gef usedTo the new rules, and in the meantime they can sympa
thize with *« Players/ to the west. He came here in 1892 to coach

MOULTON 18 CAREFUL
Trainer "Dad" Moulton Is going to
take no chances this year with the
candidates for varsity honors at Stan
ford. It will be remembered that last
year's cardinal team had several crip
ples. This was due to working the
men likely to make the team right up
to the last and in some of the hardest
fjiinies. This year, however, Moulton
will order any player showing the
least signs of being crippled onto the
bleachers, and he will be held up until
he is fully recovered.

STRENUOUS TIMES FOR
BERKELEY, Sept. 27.—Beginning
today the California freshman team
will put In the hardest week of Us
brief Rugby career. Coach Schaeffer
is evidently under the impression that
the babies need a lot of work, for the
squad will be called upon to play
three games in six days. According to
the coach, there is likely to be a big
ahakeup among the infants, as he was
very much disappointed in their show
ing against the weak San Jose team
In addition to the regular game at
the end of the week, the freshmen will
play St. Mary's college on Wednesday
If in this contest the freshmen do
not show a marked improvement,
some high school team from about the
bay will be brought to the campus on
Thursday or Friday, for things have
reached a condition at Berkeley where
drastic methods must be used. Much
time is to be devoted this week to
teaching- the first year forwards some
of the finer points about handling thr
ball with their feet.
GOTCH BEST WRESTLER
SINCE DAYS OF CARKEEK
NEW YORK, Sept. 27.—Frank Gotch,
who announced his permanent retire
ment from the mat recently, has proved
himself the greatest wrestling cham
pion since the days of Jack Carkeek.
Gotch has had 331 matches since he
started the game in 1898, not counting
many minor affairs, and of this num
ber he lost seven, five of them being
handicap matches, in which he failed
to throw his man as many times as
Ootch practically became champion in
1906, when he defeated Tom Jenkins,
who was then considered the best In
the country. He met all the stars in
the country and defeated them all. His
greatest match was with George Hack
enschmidt, the Russian l^lon, whom ha
won from in Chicago in 1908.
