POINTS OX WHICH
GRID COACHES DIFFER
Below are given the points which the
fco'.ball coaches at their meetdng In New
York Wednesday referred to the rules
committee for action. Attempts to again
change the rule governing the try after
the touchdown and to change the rule
cn clipping were defeated in the meeting
and were not referred to the rules com
The recommendations, out - of which
will come any changes made, in the rules
for next year are:
1 The pract ) of holding conferences
before each sc.'.nmage and delaying the
game unduly should be stopped and th-i
rules so amended that these delays sha'.l
bring penalties of five yards for pur
posely delaying the contest.
2 The present rule governing the try
for point is approved.
3 The rules committee should clarify
the rights of the receiver a punt and
caution officials to keep a closer watch
on roughing and interfering with the re
ceiver. 4 The rules committee and control
board should not have the power to
change officials after these have been
approved and accepted by the colleges
5 The penalty for reporting late at the
start of the game should be similar to
that for reporting late for the second
6 The old rule governing a bounding
ball after a kick and the contact with
this ball by a man offside should be re
turned instead of the new rule, which Is
7 The word "motion" should be sub
stituted for "momentum" In Bute 9, which
has to do with shifts. -
8 The officials should have a uni
form code of signals to inform the crowd
as to the nature of a penalty or score.
These signals should; be e?lalned with
pictures in the rule book.
9 The rules committee should incor
porate in the rule book a series of plates
showing typical positions of officials in
open and close formations.
10 The rules committee should appoint
an official interpreter .pf the rules to
whom all questions could be submitted
and whose decisions would be official and
11 The rules committee should go ov
er the rule governing the onside kick,
which lacks balance and entails too many

LANDIS TO MAKE INVESTIGATION
OF RUBE BENTON'S BASEBALL RECORD
Chicago. Dec 29 (By the A. P.)
Pitcher "Rube" Benton, recently purchas
ed by the Cincinnati Nationals from St.
Paul, will be barred from baseball if in
vestigations reveals he was involved in
the crooked world's Berles of 1919, Com
missioner Landis announced tonight. Com
missioner Landis is investigating reports
that Benton won a largft sum of money
betting on aytip that Cincinnati would
win the series.
Benton, who called on the commissioner
yesterday to Inquire into his status, was
told there was nothing in the commis
sioner's records at this time to prevent
him from playing organized baseball.
The commissioner, however, had start
ed Investigating reports that Benton had
knowledge of the "fixing" of the 1919
world's series and when informed to
night that President Heydler, of the Nar
tlonal league had taken steps to bar Ben
ton as an undesirable, the commissioner
said he would continue his inquiry and
probably would have a report before the
President Johnson, of the American lea
gue previously had declared Benton trjuld
not be permitted to play in his league.
He said two players had made affidavit!
that Benton had told them he had won
a large sum on the 1919 series having
received advance information that tho
series had been fixed.
This information, Benton was alleged
to have said, was obtained from Bill
Burns and Jean Dubuc. Since then Ben
ton has said that he had bet only $20
on Cincinnati to win. Benton was drop
ped by the New York Nationals in 1921
ostensibly for failure to observe training
rules. After he joined the St. Paul club,
Benton pitched winning ball.
Benton previously was involved in a
National league controversy when he ac
cused Buck Herzog, then manager of the
Cincinnati club, of asking him' ( Benton
to throw ball games. Herzog denied the
charge. After President Heydler conduct
ed an investigation he was dropped. Her
zog was absolved from guilt and given
his unconditional release.
Heydler Against Benton

opinion that Rube Benton, former New

do believe that a small group, " given
proper freedom of action, would be able
soon to devise' a proper plan. It would
be time enough to consider forcible
measures after such an opportunity had
been exhausted. Such a body, would not
only be expert but friendly. It would not
be bound by special official obligations ;
It would have no animus and no duty but
to find and state the truth. In a situa
tion which requires an absence of techni
cality and Immunity from Interference, I
hope that the way may soon be found for
a frank discussion and determination of
what is essentially an economic problem.
V. S. Beady to Aid In Any "Practicable
. ' . ' Way.
. "The United States has the most friend
ly and disinterested purpose, In this mat
ter and wishes to aid in any practicable
way. But It Is idle to make suggestions
which arouse false hopes and are so Im
practicable that they they cannot bear
fruit. On the other hand, there lies open
a "broad avenue of opportunity of those
whose voluntary, action Is indispensable
are willing to take advantage of it. And
once this is done, the avenues of Ameri
can helpfulness cannot fall to open hope
- Washington Anns Ceafereaee.
Aside from the economic question,' Mr.
Hughes devoted most of his address to a
discussion of the results of the .Washing.
ton arms conference. With respect to the
recent public discussion of auxiliary craft
problems, such as the Japanese and Brlt-
lsn cruiser projects, ne said:
"There Is nothing that can be called In
anv decree alarmlna.
"It ought to be possible." Mr. Hughes
said, also with reference to total auxil
iary craft tonnage untouched by the
Washington treaty, to "arrange a modus
Vivendi which would preclude a wasteful
and. unnecessary competition." .
So far as American strength Is con
cerned, he said, "the United 'States is
not as well supplied as it should be, but
the. treaty does not Interfere with ade
quate provision by the United States to
supply this want, and it should be sap
plied." . . ; . . ' , '. .,-v.
. Mr. Hughes, declared 'that difficulties
which prevented further naval limitations
by the conference, so . far as he was -able
to see, ."still stand." . The- failure then
to make 'more sweeping, limitations, be
added "is not. attributable to us.". -
Summarising; his review , of the, naval
pact, -and criticisms directed . against It,
the secretary said: " .
' "My conclusion is that the naval treaty
will stand the test of analysis and fair
statement, taking, all the pertinent 'facta
into consideration : and that It win. bs a
desirable safeguard and not a- menace to
our security and at the same time an
important assurance -of ., peace. These
happy results will be attained, however,
