Summer Baseball and Its Evils
To Be Discussed.
Meeting of National Collegiate
Athletic Association in
This City To-day.
The executive eommltfe of the National
Collegiate Athletic Association h-dd a ses?
sion In the Hotel Astor last night to lay
out the programme ?nd prepare resolutions
for the annual meeting of the ?Association
at the same place to-day. ?'aptain Palmer
? Pierce, r S. A . who has been an active
worker In the cause for clean sport and a
raising of the standard of Inter'-ollegtate
athletics, Is likely to be re-elected presi?
dent, an office he has held since the asso?
ciation was organized, several year:-, ago,
vhen the first crusade against football as
fiimefl dangerous proportions. He said last
night that he expected a full meeting,
With representatives on hand from most of
the nlnety-OOe colleges and untversitl.-s
which make up the membership.
Responses to the letter of inquiry sent
nut by the association on summer base?
ball and Its evils were received from ISO
different institutions Professor i>ank
W, N'l'ol.son, of Wcsleyan, secretary of
the asso'-lation. rea<l a long and exhaus?
tive report, which he summarized as fol?
"Almost" all of the colleges consider
Itaset-all as now played a benefit, but many
think it <*>uld be Improved by eliminating
or reducing the professional element and
by emphasizing the Idea of sport rather
than contest. There is a general belief
that there should he fewer Intercollegiate
contests and more intracollegtate. A large
majority of the colleges reported that they
enforced the amateur law. Ther?* seemed
to he decided difference of opinion at> to
what t ht* t law is.
"Most of tiie colleges report the con?
duct of the student spectators at the game
satisfactory. Few of the colleges ?onshler
baseball to have been professionalized in
their Institutions. There is evidence that
conditions in this respect are improving
in many places.
"In more than haif of the colleges re
jiorting, less than 2i> per cent take part
in anv aray In baseball. In the other In?
stitutions the number participating runs
from U to fill per cent, and even more in a
few cases.
"Tin.' majority of the colleges do not
think it poaetMe to abolish (?ate receipts.
chiefly for financial reasons. although
there is a general belief that the practice
now Increasing among the colic?es of es?
tablishing a atUdont tax for athleth'S, if
combined with subscriptions or an endow?
ment from the college, might make It pos
si'ule some time in the future to do awa."
With gate receipts. Th?? majority of the
colleges seem to favor that course as soon
as it becomes feasible
"About ha!f the colleges emplov a rr"
'.al baseball coach, but decldedlv less
than half express themselves In favor of
that plan A lar??' malorlty of th?? col
ktgea favor th?? proposition that ?he bas?
laii reach be not allowed to direct the
game from the players' bench "
At the present time Yale, Princeton and
Cornell aie th?* only leading universities in
th?? Knst which have not Joln-??*l the asso?
ciation. Bvery effort haB failed up to this
time to gain their co-operation, but ?'aptain
Pierce ?s still hopeful that every Important
educational Institution in the ??ountry
eventually will join forces.
The summer baseball evil a form of
semi professionalism In the colleges a ttnl
form amateur rule, the needs of football
and professional coaching for College men
are the leading ?luentions which will bo die
CUSSed at th?* busin??ss sessions In the af
ternoon today ami at the informal S'S-^ioii
In th? evening
'I'll?* morning will h<? devoted to ad?
dresses by Major (ieneral Leonard Wood,
chief of staff, P. ft. A., on "Th.? Military
Value of Athletics to a Nation"; Chancellor
Mo'ormlck of th" I'nlverslty of Pitts?
burgh, on "CoHtsglate Athletlca from tin?
Viewpoint of the President of a Univer?
sity," and Professor Scudder, of Rutgers
College, on "The Influence of Collegiate
Athletlea upon Preparatory Schools." Cap?
tain Pierc also will mane his annual ad?
dress on queetlona of vital Interest to th"
welfare and advancement of the associa?
The aaeonation is made up of faculty
representatives of the various colleges and
UnlVOrettlee, and Its purpose la to direct,
rain'r than to control. 1'nder the circuni
Stances football and possible rule changes,
for which there Is such a clamor In the
Bast, win be treated only in a general ara]
as the work of revision will be left to th?'
rules commlttSS when It meets later In the
winter. Th'-re is almost sure to be aome
general dlocusatou, how.-ver, which may
prove interesting, more particularly as i?r.
Harry L Williams, who will represent Min?
nesota, and Who Is a number of the rules
committee, said Just before leaving Minne?
apolis that ha WOUld "i pose any attempt
that may he made to abolish the furwanl
pass, asserting that he Is satisfied with the
preeent ralea ami is in favor of allowing
then to remain Intact
