Boston, Dec. 7 An editorial protest of the
publication In the Harvard Graduates' Maga
zine of an article favoring the severance by
Harvard of athletic relations with Yale is con
tained In this week's issue of the Harvard Bul
letin the official organ of the Harvard Gradu
ates' Athletic association, which appeared today.
The bulletin declares that the attack on not
only the athletic, but also the educational activ
ities of Yale, found in the magazine article,
does not have the approval of a great ma
jority of the Harvard graduates, and It expresses
its belief that the article is heartily condemned
by the majority.
Remarking that altho the Graduates' Magazine
is an unofficial publication. Its influence is al
most as great as it it were official, the Bulletin
makes the point that for this reason the article
containing the attack should have been signed
It declares, however, that the article should
never^ have been printed.

Cincinnati, Ohio, Dec. 7.In awarding Player
Beaver of the Ottumwa club to the Detroit Amer
icans the national baseball commission yesterday
toiok occasion to severely score both the Ottumwa
clhb and the Minneapolis association club.
The decision states that these clubs would
hfcve been fined $500 each had there been proof
submitted to the national commission of an
agreement between them that the Minneapolis
clhb covered certain players for Ottumwa.
,The commission holds that the purchase or
draft by a major league club takes precedence
oyer a minor league arrangement. After say
ing that the commission bad been asked by
Mr. Watklns Of the Minneapolis club to make
a finding, and narrating the circumstances, the
decision says: "The miderslgned did not deem
it necessary to call either upon the Detroit club
01! Ottumwa club for a statement In the case.
The agreement ehteied into between the two
club* could only annly tp the Ottumwa club
at the close of the season and no others If
the player in question had been legally sold to
the Detioit club previous to this time, or had
been drafted bv any otherteam or league club,
the sale or draft must be held as a valid one
because it would have been in accordance with
section 6 or S of article 6 of the national
agreement. The Detroit club having complied
with the rules of the commission relative to
the purchase of this player, the sale will stand.
"We desire to call attention in this case to
the suggestion made by the Ottumwa club to the
Minneapolis club to cover certain players for
them, and also the suggestion from the latter
club with reference thereto, that if either one
of these agreements had been entered into and
proof thereof submitted to the commission a fine
of $500 W011M have been imposed upon each of
the oarties under the provision of the national
agreement.Harry C Pulliam, August Her-

Thomas Taggart, the Indianapolis politician and
hotel man, is planning to establish a five-mile
circular track at French Springs. Did., for

There is no track of this kind in America,
and the fact that it will be a boon to auto
