llndicnl Change Makes Ex
tra Point Easier After
a Touchdown.
TlfE TR0
Jfpw Kulo to Protect the For
ward l'nssci' Minor
Tho Intereolteglato Football Utiles
rnnunlttoo concluded Its session nt the.
11 tol Biltmoro yesterday, and ono of
the most Important of the many changes
imposed was tho elimination of tho punt
out after tho touchdown. In the game
ti"t fall it practically W.U1. mean a tally
(if seven points for every touchdown, for
i!vo will bo very little to hinder tho
making of tho fxtra point following the
coring of a touchdown.
Tho interpretation of tho new clause
n'lows the sldo maklpg.tho touchdown to
-jlaro tho ball anywhere in front of the
goal posts. Kven should tho touchdown
ho made at tho angle of the Bidellno tho
(.poring sldo is at liberty to bring the
kill right In front of tho goal posts and
p'neo it at any distance near or far for
tho frco kick. It was decided that the
touchdown scpro should Tcmaln equal to
m polnts. as of yore.
Thero was considerable surprise when
Walter Camp, secretary of the commit
ted, announced that a move had been
mad to do something for professional
football. E. K. Hall of Dartmouth was
: ;ipointed chairman of a committee of
three to draw up a code of rules which
nill ho sent to all the colleges through-,:
out the country asking, whether or not
the "pro" game should be given any con
sideration. If the majority favor a recog
r n ion of tho cash element' steps will be
taken to put the sport on the risht foot
ing. One of the most vital changes touching
the actual playing rules was with regard
m the protection given to the'thrower of
the forward pass. Heretofore he has
been open to all sorts of attacks from
the onDosine side, but the new rule gives
him much tho same protection that the
i unter Is awarded in performing a kick.
The wording of the new rule is plain
enough when it says "There shall be no
rujghlng a forward passer after the pass
la made."
No specific penalty has been drafted
ai yet for an offensengalnst uis rule,
but In due course It will In all likelihood
be tho same ns for roughing a kicker,
which Is a loss of five yards; or maybe
It might still he more drastic and may
icsult In a fifteen yard penalty or a dis
qualification. Itule ChniiHed fiover-ilns Sulistl
tnte. A lengthy discussion occurred over the
Interpretation of Bule 2, Section 2, gov
f rning substitutes, and the outcome was
n decision which will guard against
f.iture confusion, a glaring example of
w hl"h took place in connection with the
Harvard-Princeton game last fall. It
will be remembered that an incoming
quarterback failed to relay to the team
the complete instruction for tho change.
Ills predecessor at tho pivot was to take
a linesman's place and the linesman was
t come out., "Tho new clause which will
i over the point reads:
"After a player, has reported to his
proper official and the change has been
madmhe substitution' shall be considered
as cflRipleted."
What is termed unnecessary roughness
came in for some treatment and the rule
on the point was extended to meet with
a form of play which for a long time has
tipi n regarded as unsportsmanlike. The
l:i.er.s call it "Indianizlng" a man who
a ttially is not engaged In tho play. The
i ndus operandi of the act is that some
llavers who are). adepts at tricks fling
themselves In front of a man and no mat

Kntry for National Indoor
Tennis Championship Shows
"Well Balanced Field.
When play starts at tho Seventh
Regiment Armory to-morrow in the
fourteenth annual national Indoor
tennis championship for women forty
six aspirants, a record field for the
event, will be drawn In the first and
recond rounds. The entry, which closed
yesterday, exceeds by four names any
previous list In an outdoor title tourna
ment. While some of those who have
been most prominently Identified with
tho championship, Mrs. George W.
Wightman, tho ntlo holder; Mrs. Frank
lin I. Mallory, Miss Eleanor Goss, Miss
Marie Wagner and Miss Marion Kinder
stein, aro among the absentees, enough
players of ability are Induded to In
jure nn interesting tournament. For
the first time In many years the field Is
so well balanced that It is difficult to
ramo a probab'e winner.
It has been customary to announce
tho draw on the day entries close, but
tho committee decided not to make It
public until to-morrow, in order to
avoid the possibility that weaker play
ers, finding themselves drawn against
title contenders, may be frightened
away hy the prospect of defeat In the
first" round. The committee, of which
Miss Marie wagner Is chairman, be
llovcs that many defaults will ho pre
vented by withholding publication of
tho draw.
The names of tho entrants were an
nounced, however, and teveral h'nts
nero given as to th strongest players
In the different quarters of tho draw.
In tho upper quarter, for Instance, :t Is
known that Mi3s Clare Cassel. Mrp. Ingo
Hartmann and Miss Martha Bayard are
the contenders. In tho second quarter
Mrs. Frederics C. Schmltz, ono time
champion; Miss Edith Slgourney of
Boston and Mrs. Samuel H. Waring
stand out prominently. In the third
quarter Mrs. M. B. Huff of Philadelphia.
Miss Caroma Winn and Mis3 Cores
Eaker aro among the asplrnnts. while In
tho final quarter nro Miss Phyllis Walsh
of Philadelphia, recent winner nf the
Florida State championship; Miss Hel
ene Pollak, Mrs Percy Wilbourti and
Miss Evelyn Seavy of Kansas City.
On form one might venture a guess
that tho eeml -finalists in tho upper halt
will bo Mies Clare Cassel and Mrs.
Samuel II. Waring, and in tho lower
half SIlss Caroma Winn and Miss Hcl

When tlii- executivo committee of the
I'nltcd States l.awn Tenhis Association
holds Its spring meeting In tills city on
March 27 tho adoption of the annual
schedule of sanctioned tournaments will
bo tho leading subject for consideration,
but there will bo other matters of Im
portance. For ono thing tho Interna
tional tennis programme will assume
definlto shape, for final determination
will be made of tho question of sending
teams to the British championships and
tho Olympic gaYnes. The Davis Cup sit
uation may also be clearer by that time.
At present America does not know
whether Its announced preliminary tie
with South Africa Is to stand or whether
a new draw Is to bo made with Canada
included. It appear to bo up to Canada
to request tne nations already drawn to
rec to a new arrangement thnt will In
! clll(3e n team from tho Dominion. The
same situation occurred in una, when,
owing to cablo delays, Pouth Africa was
left out of the original draw hut vns
admitted Into the International event
when tho countries Involved decided to
accept tho entry nnd make n new draw.
From national tennis headquarters has
coine the announcement that the tour
nament dates of 193". Judging from tho
unprecedented number of applications,
will surpass In number those of any pre
vious year. The most difficult task In
Ik-tlng them is to avoid as many con
flicts of dates as possible. Offhand It Is
estimated thnt moro than 200 tourna

The commltteo will also have for
consideration applications from two sec
tlonal associations for recognition under
the new constitutional provisions. One
come. from tho Missouri Valley district
and the other from Philadelphia, which
now Is tho centre of tho Middle States
Association. In both S.t. Louis and
Philadelphia rival associations aro vy
ing with each other for control, nnd
tho probability Is that until they settle
their differences nnd work together
under ono association no recognition
will bo given by the national body.
Tho two factions In St. Louis nre tho
Central States Tennis Association, which
-Is a ibranch of tho SL Louis Amateur
Athletlo Association, an organization
that has controlled amateur sport there
for years, and tho recently formed St.
Louts Tennis Association. In Philadel
phia tho Philadelphia Lawn Tennis As
sociation, composed chiefly of smalf
clubs. Is fighting for control against
tho larger and older clubs, that Includo
Mer'on, Germantown Cricket Cluh and
tho Philadelphia Country Club.
A communication from officials of the
French association will also demand
the attention of tho committee. It bears
bn the part tho International Federa
tion Is to play In tho adoption of univer
sal rules. The plan Is to pass this
prerogative to tho federation and the
Idea has been accepted nbroad. The
Europeans want the United States to
share In this- activity of tho federation
and they regret their Inability to effect
a solution of tho difficulties now block
ing tho acceptance of the plan in this
country. Negotiations aro in tho hands
of v Watson M. "Washburn, who repre
sented the United States at the Inter
national tennis conferenco In Europe
last year.
