DEADLOCK IN
THE ASSOCIATION
/JEhomas J. Hickey's Friends Want
Him for President of
League.
Journal Speoial Service
Chicago, Dec 19 \nother fight over the pres
idency of the American association like the one
which unseated Kd Grillo a year ago is booked
for Dec 28 when the club owners of the or
sanitation convene here in their annual meeting
Joseph 0 Brlen may lose his berth at the
head of the league, as four clubs Columbus,
Toledo Indianapolis and Minneapolis, will vote
against him
W Watkins of Minneapolis is said to be
at the head of the opposition The tangle over
the piesidency arose over the meeting of the
minor league magnates in New York list week
A deadlock apparently has been formed The
candidate of the Watkins forces is Thomas
Bkkej of Minneapolis
It is quite probable that Hickey will not ac
cept the place but in any case O Brien friends
will stand firm and cast their ballot for some
one else O'Brien may hold his position despite
the opposition as the four to-four vote could
BOt unseat him
Minneapolis followers of baseball have known
for some time that tliere would be a fight when
It came time for a reflection of a president of
the American association The fans who saw
the work of some of the umpires during the
critical time of the season last year will recall
that appeals were made to the president to send
the best arbitrators In the league to Minneapolis,
bnt he did not see fit to grant the request
Minneapolis fans will always believe that the
millers got much the worst of it in one or two
cries, and that the bad work was not thru
Incompetence of the umpires, but thru their de
elre to "do" the millers
joe O'Brien has made a fair president of the
association. He was the candidate of Tebean
and Havener and this was enough to put the
others against him. The syndicate system of
baseball now in vogue in the American associa
tion put O'Brien in the presidency After his
flection he promised to open up the offices of
the association in Chicago, but the office was
retained in Milwaukee All rulings came out
1 of Milwaukee It smacked too much of paternal
I &jm to suit the fans and followers of the game
I] O'Brien Is Capable.
Personally Joe O Brien is a capable young man
and a clean official. He has kept the affairs of
the association in good shape, but sponsors are
not popular with the bleacher birds
Watkins is advocating the election of Thomas
1jj Hickey of Minneapolis The Minneapolis
snan is popular with fans thruout the chcuit,
end is a power in baseball
"I do not care to discuss this matter at
all said Mr Hickey today "It has not come
I to me officially and as my relations with all
of the club-owners are pleasant I do not wish
to do or say anything that would cause any
I ill feeling
[MINNESOTA'S COAGH
TALKED OF FOOTBALL
T)r Williams, athletic director at the
tJniversity of Minnesota, made several state
ments of Interest to the followers of western
football at the banquet of the Northwestern
Alumni association of the University of Penn
Bvlvanla held at the Nicollet hotel last night
He said that while football would always be
a strenuous game it wis not nearly so dangerous
ji as it was charged with being and added that a
large part of the prejudice against the game was
due to exaggerated newspaper reports In sup
port of this statement he pointed to the fact
that uncii the imebtisation of the committee
which conferred with President Roosevelt only
six of the eighteen deaths charged to football
were traced to the game
In speaking of the relative strength of the
eastern and western teams Dr Williams said
that he thought a game between a good western
team and the best the east could produce would
open the eyes of the easterners in regard to the
possibilities of the game for according to all
Si reports the game now played in the east is slow

STATE CONFERENCE
ON ATHLETICS
Great Interest Shown in the An
nual Meeting at North-
field.
Special to Tne Journal.
Northfleld, Minn Dec 19 The annual meet
ing of the Minnesota college conference on ath
letics was held at Carleton college yesterday
following the custom of meeting with the col
lege which wins the championship for the year
About twenty delegates were present includ
ing the committee, Professors Funk of Macales
ter Diew of Hamline, Doyle of St Thomas,
Newhall of Shattuck school and Chaney of Carle
ton
After dinner at Gridley hall a mass meeting
of students and friends was held In the chapel
when the trophy was presented to the winning
team Professor Funk as president of the con
ference made the presentation in a few words
which were fittingly responded to by Captain
Lee President SaJlman In welcoming the dele
gates spoke of the fire of criticism thru which
the game of football is passing, and declared
himself in favor of the retention of the game
with some modifications which would contribute
to safety and to a restoration of those ele
ments which made it spectaculai and interesting
to the uninitiated spectators
He said that much of the current criticism
was not applicable to the conditions in the
smaller colleges They are fairly free from the
evils of professionalism, a larger number of
students in proportion to the attendance have a
shaie in the benefits of practice than at the
larger institutions there being three teams at
woik on the Carleton field this year, while the
chaiges of unfaii and of unduly rough play
could not be brought against the colleges of the
confeience there being no players ruled out
during the season
President Sallman is opposed to the game being
plaj ed oy high school and academy students
among whom he thinks occurs the majority of
accidents and deaths He criticized the ten
dency east and west of the game degenerating
into a business saying that the budget of ex
pens.es in certain institutions for the four weeks
preceding Thanksgiving exceeded the entire ex
pense of a western college for a year
He deplored the widespread betting and gam
bling which accompanies the larger games, add
ing that he did not charge football with origi
nating these evils for they were in existence
before the game was played These poison the
springs of character in student life and must
be eliminated if the game is to be rehabilitated
in public favor
Morning and afternoon sessions of the commit
tee weie held at which the managers arranged
their schedules for the next season The fol
lowing votes were passed FirstThat it is
not desnable to admit to this conference insti
tutions located outside of Minnesota, second,
that the committee approve any effort of the
managers to make arrangements with North
Dakota Agricultural college, third, that a stu
dent transfemng from one conference Institu
tion to another shall be ineligible to athletic
teams for one year fouith that the conference
track meet be held on Laird athletic field on
Monday, May 28, fifth, that basketball and
tennis be included in the sports recognised by
the conference, sixth, that a committee con
sisting of Professors Chaney of Carleton and
Doyle of St Thomas formulate the position of
the conference regarding professionalism
The officers re elected were Professor
Funk of Macalester, president, and Professor
L. W Chaney of Carleton, secretary.

A writer in the Chicago Becord-Her
aid offers the following reforms tor
football*
Rule 1The field shall be bounded as at pres
ent and covered with three feet of cotton batting
or eiderdown It shall be banked on all sides
with feather beds
Rule 2Pla-vers shall wear proper armament
to prevent injuries Said armament shall con
sist of large pillows for the chest, abdomen
and loins while a hair padding, if loosely
packed will be permitted for the shoulders and
elbows Shin guards stuffed with excelsior and
shoes with cleats of soft felt shall be worn
Headgear shall be made exclusively of sponges,
which will serve the double purpose of protec
tion and a reservoir, thereby eliminating the re
volting spectacle of an assistant rubber rushing
onto the field with a pail of water
Rule 3Signals shall be whispered softly
When the bull is put in play the man chosen to
carry it shall walk back ten feet and either
kick or call for a game of pullaway at his
discretion
Rule 4If pullaway is called for, all players
but the one with the ball and one on the oppos
ing side shall retire to the side lines The man
with the ball shall then attempt to get past
his opponent If the latter succeeds In touching
him he shouts "Tag and the ball goes down
on the spot
Rule 5After each play the participants shall
be cheered by the persons assembled in the
grandstands The cheering shall consist only
of clapping of hands and exclamations of "Very
well done
Rule 6After the cheering the college hands
will play some classical selection which has
previously been approved by a committee con
sisting of three members of the faculty
Rule 7If a kick Is called for after the ball
is put in play, all the participants shall recline
on the field with the exception of the kicker
He will then kick and the official shall note
where the ball falls The ball will then change
hands and the teams will line up at the spot
where the ball fell
Rule 8If a player becomes weary he shall
approach an official and say in a low voice, "Sir.
I am fatigued" Whereupon the official will
blow his whistle and all participants will recline
while coffee, sandwiches and ice cream are
served
Rule 9After the game the favors will be
distributed and the spectators will be permitted
to walk upon the field, where the players will
constitute the reception committee

ECKERSALL FOR
OLD TACKLE RULE
Chicago Captain Denies Proposed
Change in Rules Will Be
Practicable.
Journal Speoial Service.
Chicago, Dec 19Captain Eckersall of the
Chicago football team, who Walter Camp picks
as the best tackier in the country, doeB not
think the proposed football regulation which pro
hibits tackling except between the knees and
shoulders, will be of anv benefit The maroon
quarter, who himself also tackles above the
knees believes the rule would be Impracticable
by the inability of the officials to enforce the
egulatlon
'The proposed rule prohibiting tackling below
the knee would probably bring about more dis
putes than reforms in football," said Eckersall.
"It will be Impossible for the officials to enforce
the rule They can never determine where a man
is tackled except in a few cases and if a decis
ion is made the tackier will claim he tackled
above the knees, but his hands slipped down,
which often happens This win lead to disputes
between the rival players and cause ill feeling,
which will do much harm. A similar rule was
tried some years ago and proved a failure.
"There were not enough Injuries among the
bigger teams to warrant changing the game
much I like Mr Stagg's plan of having one
set of rules for the college teams and anothei
for the prep school players

Every play as recommended by the coaches at
the meeting will be tried in the game here.
According to the new rales ten yards will have
to be made In three downs to retain possession
of the ball Forward passes behind the line
will be permitted A field goal will count six
points A penalty of twenty yards will be made
against a team for piling on a player when
down. If any member of the team with the ball
slugs or uses rough tactics, a penalty will be
Inflicted
The coaches of both teams have been at work
figuring on formations that will give the most
oren style of game The teams are evenly

so that no penalties will be made for extra
weight.

JOE CANTILLON*
:TALKS OF HOPES
$
Milwaukee Magnate Will Try fox
a Strong Team Next'
Year.
Special to The Journal.
Milwaukee, Wis Dec. 19 Joe CantOlon, man
rger of the Milwaukee ball clnb, Is recovering
rapidly from bis recent Illness, due to an era
tion at Rochester, Minn and he will soon be
fcble to take care his business interests around
Chicago In fact, Joe was out for the first
time Saturday and visited with Kid Speer, his
right bower
Speaking of the brewers' chances for next sea
son, that is for getting a team together, Joe
said "For several weeks I did not care much
whether there were ball clubs or not, but now
that I have recovered end am getting back to my
normal condition, I feel like talking baseball
once more You know the big leagues will have
quite a little to do with the brewers next sea
son, as under the ruling of the national com
miesion the sixteen major league dabs must
waive claim to a player before be can be re
turned
Work of Collecting Hen.
"As there are about five of my best men who
are liable to be held in that way tfiere ap
pears a lot of work before me In getting another
winning bunch, together Comtekey has lost Jim
mv Callahan, so be will no doubt keep Jack
O'Neill to fill the gap Charlie Hemphill has
been plugging for Frank, his brother, so that he
may be swiped by the St Louis club Harry
Clark may also be kept and Goodwin and Bate
man are gone for sure That will require some)
stars to fill their places, as Milwaukee fans
want nothing but winners However I have
picked up winners before without much trouble
and I will have no bother doing it again
"The new draftirg rule will help the minor
leagues," remarked Joe In discussing the result
of the New York meeting "Now that the big
league clubs can take only one plaver from a
Class A league club there will be more chance
for the small league magnates to get along
There will be no more of this riddling of teanw
by the draft, and if there are stars on hand,
why the magnates will be able to get a proper
price for them Managers who desire to bold a
good team together can do so. If tbey want to
sell their jnen then It Is np to them to make
good with their patrons The minors have every
reason to feel -grateful for the new rule.
