Not a Single Fatality
Mars Football Season
College Men Decide to Make
No Changes in Rules All
Sports Flourish.
N'
OTWTTHSTANDINO the Increaaed
number of boys playing football
this year, tho Committee on
Deafhe and Fatalities of the National
Collegiate Athletic Association made the
surprising report yesterday that not a
single death had resulted from the
strenuous fall sport. This Is the first
season sine football was made a col
lege game that fatalities have been ab
solutely avoided
This, among other things, led the con
ference to decide that the present nil
will not be changed.
The official report of tha Committee on
Football should Srlng Joy to the heart
of every gridiron player and supporter
It showed that the new code of rules
had mat with general approval. The re.
suit wea record -breaking attendance at
all the big gamea and few accidents.
Believing that tha rules that governed
the fall sport last year nset wtth all de
mands for a change from the Injurious
ptlma In vogue several years ago, the
chairman recommended thst the D1J
set of rules be given another trial next
season. This met wub practically no op
position.

flourishing condition. The noted college
authorttle are aatlatlad to let well
enough alone
The chairman of th o;er committee
reported that occer was the fatxtt
growing eport In Ih universities Ac
cording to th (,-halrman, soccer even
outstepped football for the boy's favor.
'I believe that soccer Is ths coming
sport In the collage," aaid Prof. Oeorge
U Meylan of Columbia. In several
yeara I think it will surpass even foot
ball in popularity. Take the cans of
Cornell thla year for tnatance. I under
stand that about forty boya came out
for the football teams. But when the
soccer season opened there were up
wards of three hundred boys out. I be
lieve that soccer Is here to stay, and
Intend next year to make It a com
pulsory eport at Columbia, where al
ready It Is being played by hundreds."
