RUGBY UNION ACCEPTS THE CALIFORNIA'S RESIGNATION
BLUE AND GOLD
KICKERS OUT OF
Attitude of College Is Grilled
by Members of Union
and Ban Is Placed
on Future Games
By a unanimous vote of the California
Rugby union—the University of Califor
nia being the only organization not rep-
resented—the resignation of the Univer
sity of California was accepted at a
meeting held at the Olympic club last
night. The-action of the union makes
It impossible for California to arrange
any preliminary games next season
•w-jth any of the members of the govern
ing body. The annual game between
Stanford and California, however, will
be played as usual, the special clause in
the constitution of the union covering
The meeting was the largest attended
since the organization of the govern
ing body, and the consensus of opinion
wag to the effect that the University of
California was acting in a dictatorial
manner to the union. This was empha
sized by every delegate present, and the
unanimous vote to accept the resigna
tion was mainly brought about by the
utand taken by the transbay university.
CAREFUL THOUGHT URGED
The letter of resignation and the let
ter of explanation were read and before
discussion took place on the letters
f'hairman Burbank pointed out that the
repignation was not the only issue at
stake, but that the life of the union de-
pended on the present action of the
bodies forming it. Burbank urged all
delegates to give the whole matter se
rious consideration and not to vote un
less they were sure that the bodies they
represented were ■willing to stand back
of their votes. Every delegate present
voiced opinion that their institu
tions would stand back of the union.
The whole trend of the meeting was
that the individual members should
forget their own feelings and that the
bodies forming the union should at all
times work for the uplift of the organ
ization and the upbuilding of Rugby
football In the state.
REASOXS FOR WITHDRAWAL
All the speakers gave It as their
opinion that California was not willing
to sink its individuality for such a
rause. the statement being made that
all their actions had been contradictory
to this sentiment.
Tt was pointed out that California's
main reason for withdrawal was on
acrnunt of not having had a represen
tative on the all star selection com
mittee, and when they asked for a re
t-onsideration of the matter and this
was voted against them, they were of
The opinion that they were not being
treated fairly. Tt was pointed out also
that in their own student body the
'majority" vote was always respected,
yet in the Rugby union the "majority
vote"' of that body was not so respected
by the university.
Before the meeting adjourned a
unanimous vote was passed that the
public be informed of the full circum
stances leading up to the action of the
union in accepting the resignation, and
a committee will be named today to
draw up a report, which will be given
full publicity throughout the state.
Copies will be sent to the University
of California student body.
No one is dictating to the university
and no one wants to, but body ex
pects that any member should be will
ing to abide by the majority decision
without being offended."
S. X. Phillips, representing the Uni
versity of Nevada, said:
"Without the co-operation of the
clubs and smaller colleges the Austra
lian trip could not have been accom
plished. Under these circumstances
California should realize that in unity
there is strength, and should be will
ing at all times to help out the uniqn
by its support and not wish to dom
inate the situation."
Graduate Manager D. W. Burbank of
Stanford assured the union of the full
support of his university.
"Stanford is back of the union in
every sense of the word," said Bur
bank, "and it is only due to a matter
of college sentiment brought out by
years of competition that the cardinal
football team intends to continue the
annual big game. Stanford is in favor
of accepting the resignation of the
University of California if California
is not willing to abide by the bylaws
of the union."

resented as follows:

COLLEGE CINDER PATHS
ROUNDING INTO SHAPE
Stanford and California Will
Be Busy With Big North
The cinder tracks at both Stanford
and California promise to be In great
condition for the coming track and
field season. At both institutions the
tracks have been torn up and are be
ing relaid. The big intercollegiate
meet this year between California and
Stanford will be held on the Univer
sity of California campus, β-nd the blue
and gold authorities intend to have
the oval in the best shape for the af
The track is being rebuilt under the
supervision of Trainer Walter Chris
tie. A new under body is being put
in and new cinders being put on for
the top dressing. Tho whole track will
be reworked for all it is worth and
plenty of time is to be taken to get
it into first class condition. The turns
are being banked a trifle higher at
both ends, this having been considered
necessary for some time.
It will be a late season in starting
for the blue and gold team —much
later than for many years past—but
this is not expected to be a detriment. \
Christie in past years has been noted
for bringing his men along by very
slow stages, and they always have
been right at their top form on the
°day of the great meet with Stanford.
The late start will not necessarily
hamper Christie in his regulation
methods, though it might be the means
of having to develop his men just a
shade faster than in the past.
NORTHWEST WANTS MEKT
Graduate Manager Donald returned
to the campus yesterday from his so
journ in the northwest. He has not
yet made any definite dates with track
teams for dual meets with the blue
and gold men, but is working on this
subject. In the past California has held
dual meets with the Olympic club, the
University of Southern California and
with Pomona. It is probably that the
same series of teams will be met this
season. The University of Southern
California is anxious to measure strides
with both California and Stanford
again this year. The southrons have
an exceptionally strong team, includ
ing Waldo Throop and Ira Courtney
in the sprints; Fred Kelly, the Olym
piad champion hurdler; Swiggert. their
crack distance man, and several other
new men with reputations.
The Pacific coast intercollegiate con- I
fprence meet, which was originated
and promoted by the University of
California three years ago. probably
will be held again this season, but
whether it will be held at Berkeley or
some other coast city is undecided.
It is eaid that both Portland and
Seattle are anxious to stage the affair,
and if the north makes suitable ar
rangements it might be held in one
of the two cities. This, however, is
problematical now. While the meet
has never been what can be called a
financial success at Berkeley, It is
thought that the University of Cali
fornia is willing again to take the
responsibility of promoting It.
WINGED O LOOKS STRONG
The Olympic club is going to be as
strong a contender for the local uni
versities this year as in t!i*> past. The
winged O team already has arranged
to hold two meets with Stanford, the
dates being set for March 22 and April
12. Last year the cardinal and the
winged O teams contested in only one
meet, but the coming season they will
clash twice. No dates have been made
with the University of California. Just
whether the shortened season at Cali
fornia will mean a reduction of the
usual two meets to one is not known,
and this will depend to a great extent
on the arrangements that Graduate
Manager Donald makes with the south
ern university teams. The winged O
team is anxious to give the varsity
team two meets if possible.

MEEHAN AND GRANDE GO
TEN ROUNDS TO A DRAW
Middle Weights Put Up a
Lively Battle in the Oak
Willie Meehan of this city and
Charles Grande, the middle weight
champion of the navy, boxed 10 fast
rounds to a draw in the ring of the
Oakland Wheelmen last evening. Both
men were game and stood toe to toe
from the first round till the finish, and
there was nothing to choose between
them, though Meehan had alead for the
first seven rounds. The decision looked
to be fair.
At the outset it looked as though
Meehan would win by a knockout. Hβ
stood away from Grande and brought
swing after swing over to the latter'e
Jaw. Grande °could not get wise to
Meehan's peculiar style and took a lot
of punishment for seven rounds. Then
he suddenly woke up and began to
make it? exceedingly rough for the for
mer San Francisco newsboy. 1
Grande made a fast finish by coming
In close in the last three rounds. Hβ
had Meehan groggy in the final period,
but Willie gamely shook his head and
continued to fight back. At the bell 1

looked the fresher, but Meehan was still

N.C. ATHLETIC LEAGUE
Oil Is Being Poured Pending
(Special Dispatch to The Call)
CHICO, Jan. 15.—The Northern Cali
fornia High School Athletic league will
hold Its annual meeting here Saturday.
One of the most Important matters to
be brought before the league Iβ the
question of retaining affiliation with
the Pacific association of the Ama
teur Athletic union.
For several years professionalism
has been rampant among the high
school athletes of this league, base
ball being the main cause of the trou
ble. Two boys, Russell Thompson of
the Shasta Union high and Gus Hoever
of Willows, have been suspended by
the registration committee of the Pa
cific association. This has caused a
general feeting against the Pacific as
There is an agitation on among: the
schools of this leagaie to withdraw
from the P. A. A. The whole agitation
Is being fostered by the students of
the schools. The principals of the
schools are firm In their belief that the
P. A. A. Is doing a good work to clean
out the professional element in school
athletics and are opposed to the with
drawal of the local union.
Should the local league withdraw, It
would be regarded locally as a down
ward step in the interests of amateur
ism and an acknowledgment that the
schools uphold professionalism. Should
any of the members of the schools
forming this league go to either Cali
fornia or Stanford or any other coast
university, it is thought doubtful if
they would be eligible for competition
owing to their not having P. A. A.
registration. The P. A. A. registration
committee has a full list of the offend
ers and is likely to debar them from
competition in any part of the United
States should they show partiality to
professionalism by disenfranchising
themselves from the Pacific coast gov
erning body of amateurism.

NTEW YORK, Jan. 15.—Ernie H.i*rt
berg, the former Irish-American A. C.
and Columbia trainer, who went m
Sweden three years ago to train the
Swedish athletes for the Olympic
frames. Is back in town and is looking
the picture of health. He will return
to Stockholm by March 1, as he has
signed another three year contract.
"King GustaVs idea." says the coach,
"is not to have me develop a few sen
sational champions, but to make all
the Swedish youths generally proficient
in athletics. The Swedish ruler does
not care for specialization. He wants
the Swedish young men to be able to
run, jump, toss the weights, skate.
swim, wrestle, box, fence and do all
athletic things fairly well. Since T
took charge of athletics in Sweden the.
general average has improved, and that
is what pleased the king the most
"You Yankees will have to go some
in Berlin in 1916, believe me. In mv
opinion, the United States never will
make another cleanup at any Olympiad.
The Americans probably will win fu
ture Olympiads, but never by the large
scores that have marked their victories
in the past. Europe Is In the throes of
an athletic awakening, and there will
be some wonderful feats performed
over there in the next few yeara."
