The Chicago press comment of today fol
lows:e I Th Tribune says: One of the difficulties of
|he new football rules, made evident to every
gne who attended the Chicago-Purdue game on
paturday, has been settled by mutual agreement
the .officials who have been chosen to tak
ate in most of the important games of the
est this fall. The Question of when hurdling
not hurdling, the all-important issue, has
en set at rest.
A conference of Referee Hackett, Umpires
X-Cornack and Hadden, Head Linesman Jack
ollister and Coaches Stagg and Williams was
eld after the game and the point was dis
missed, inasmuch as the issue had come up so
taany times during the game and there seemed
much diversity of opinion involved. The
esult of 'the meeting was an agreement for the
nterpretation of the rules regarding hurdling
hicb will make all future games in which any
these four officials participate certain of
roper regulation.
It was decided the word "hurdling" in the
hilcs must be accepted according to the old
Jnternretation. When a man Is down on bis

ight to jump over him, but when a man is

In any way on his feet and the runner attempts
to jump over him it will be construed as an
attempt to hurdle, and the penalty in this case
will be inflicted.
Chicago was penalized heavily in the game
with Purdue, and altho many of the Cannes were
for holding in the line, the majority of them
were for hurdling. Templeton and Eckergall
especially were found guilty of hurdling under
the strict Interpretation put on the rules. Both
players were surprised that they were called
on the fouls, and Coach Stagg himself felt
that many of the penalties inflicted were not
just.
The Chronicle says: The western Intercolle
giate football season opened in earnest Saturday
and in many respects it was a most auspicious
one. In the first place it served to demonstrate
to Chicago followers of the game that the new
rules have not made the contest a wishy-washy
affair. To the contrary, it is the opinion of
nearly every expert that it is better than ever.
That this is most satisfactory to those who
wish the great game well scarcely needs men
tioning. Instead of seeing close-formation plays
in which weight and Btrength played the great
er part, those who were fortunate enough to
see Saturday's battle between Chicago and Pur
due at Marshall field had a treat. Everything
was as open as a game of checkers, and the
working out of the plays was both skillful and
most Interesting. Long end runs were numerous,
and there was' not too much punting to weary
one. Triple passes as smoothly articulated as
the mechanism of a Swiss watch passed before
the very eyes of the beholder, and they were
pronounced good. The forward pass also appears
to be a creditable innovation,- and In its crudity,
as seen Saturday, it showed flashes of greatness
and excitement. When it gets running smoothly
and is thoroly understood, it will present un
limited opportunities for the coach and his squad.
Altho the onslde kick was tried but once, it
was a success and proved itself to be a ground
gainer. Coaches, players and spectators were
loud in their praise of the new game, and on
this the committee which drew up said pas
sages may rest back and consider themselves
rewarded. It was a ticklish piece of work, that
of radically changing the old game, bnt it was
well done.
Michigan Weak.
A result of Saturday's matches shows that
Chicago is still very much on the football map,
and Yost's bubble is practically punctured. The
latter's team was "showed up" by Ohio state,
and according to reports the once grand Michi
gan machine was crushed like a toy balloon.
Played* off their feet by the resistless rushes
of the Ohioans, the wolverines were swept hither
and thither and it was mere luck that finally
gave the game to them. Altho they won, ac
cording to the score, nevertheless the battle, as
far as glory is concerned, went to the staters.
This makes the outlook for Yost dismal in the
extreme.
Michigan's only big game is that with Penn
sylvania, and that probably will not be much of
a splash, inasmuch as the red and blue has
been beaten by one of the smaller teams of the
east, Swarthmore. But at that the crafty coach
of the Ann Arborites may whip his squad into
some semblance of its former grandeur, and if
he does, woe for the opponents. The entire
effort of the maroon eleven is directed toward
Minnesota this season. It is the big game of
the west, and probably will be a corker. Wil
liams' knack is too well known to be dwelt
upon in this connection, and according to reports
he has the material. The coach was present at
the Chicago game to get a few pointers, but the
maroons did cot show any of their choice plays.
In this respect the doctor was checkmated. Wis
consin lost its greatest groundgainer during the
game with North Dakota when Rudolph Soukup,
halfback, had his leg broken and will be out of
the game for the rest of the season. The North
Dakota eleven gave the badgers a rude jolt.
They played the game for all they were worth
and were a serious obstacle to overcome. It
was only by the severest manner of stiff play
that they were finally overcome.
A surprise of the day was the defeat of
Nebraska at the hands of Ames. The cornhus
kers are to play Chicago, Minnesota and Michi
gan this year, and especial interest was taken In
the contest by followers of the game. As a re
sult they were slightly jolted at the news. The
score, 14 to 2, is large enough to eliminate all
question of luck.
As Minnesota plays Ames Saturday there will
be some eyes turned toward this contest, no
doubt. The gophers will have to strain every
nerve to beat them, notwithstanding the fact
that they have heretofore been considered easy
marks at Minneapolis.

at peace with the world again. Saturday's
games started the 'dope' to flowing In unlimited
quantities, as the .rooters got their real first
chance to Blze up the big teams. Enthusiastic
of the new rules was the chief bur
den of th gridiro talk yesterday, while the
numerous furnished more grist for
tho faithful. Th Chicago-Purdue game, the
best of the western exhibitions, gave the local
critics a good line on the new game and resulted
In bolstering up the hopes of the midway con
tingent. Michigan's close shave at Columbus,
where Ohio state held the wolverines without a
score until the last three minutes of play, was
the next most significant occurrence. Low scores
were frequent east and west. For the student
of the game the showing of the, teams under
the new rules took preceder.ee of everything else.
Considerable disappointment was voiced, there
fore, because Coach Stagg kept his wonderful
tricks bottled up and used the old-fashioned
game almost exclusively. Purdue's use of the
forward pass was practically the only new foot
ball seen locally, but this was sufficient to
bring spectators to their feet. One touchdown
and a drop kick alone saved Wisconsin from
North Dakota, and the loss of Soukup, the fast
right half, who broke his leg, will still further
weaken Dr. Hutchlns' team. Little *new* foot
ball was used in the game. The defeat of Ne
braska by Ames seems to mean that Coach Fos
ter has had little success at Lincoln a fact
which is not taken to kindly by local football
ers. Nebraska will come to Marshall field to
meet the maroons In Chicago's last game this
season and the occasion probably will be an anti
climax to the season.
Indiana and Illinois both did well against
home teams. Wabash, by defeating, Rose Poly
technic, kept its reputation, and Notre Dame
walked over the College of Physicians and Sur
geons to the tune of 23 to 0.
GOPHERS HAVE A
HARD TASK AHEAD
The victory of Ames over-Nebraska puts a new
and harder task before the gophers. Ristlne's
men will come to Minneapolis with more of con
fidence" than ever before, born of the showing
against the cornhuskers. They have the advan
tage of having played no less than five games,
and as the material is of veteran caliber the
contest of Saturday will be a gruelling one for
Minnesota.
On the other hand the Ames, games adds new
strength to the Minnesota schedule. Ames was
regarded as a practice game, but the overthrow
of Nebraska puts Ristine's men on the football
map in a marked manner. The new rules tend
to equalize teams this season so that, observed
from any angle, the gophers have a lot of work
cut out for them.
The defeat of Nebraska comes early enough
to give Foster a true line on his weakness and
he will have time to overcome this before he is
called upon to meet Minnesota. It does not
mean that Minnesota is to have another romp,
with Nebraska. There is lots of time for
them to strengthen, and if Foster Is a real coach
his men will show better later than they did
Saturday. The playing of Minnesota against
Northwestern and Nebraska last season, after
the Chicago defeat, was a demonstration of this.
So far as can be ascertained today, Minnesota
loses only one man thru faculty action, and he
is a substitute, altho giving promise of being
highly valuable. All of the veterans are believed
to have been successful in their attack upon con
ditions. Tho reports are not all in and this
condition of affairs may not be thoroly estab
lished.
Interest in the Ames game of Saturday and the
opening of the season is growing. The first
ticket sale begins tomorrow with the "ducats"
at the usual places, Voegeli's and Northwestern
School Supply stores in Minneapolis and Wein
ecke & Doerr's In St. Paul. Every indication
points to a big crowd, especially since Ames
whipped Foster's wards.
EASTERN TEAMS
PLAYED IN MUD
Some Surprising Results from the
Gridirons of Yankeedom
on Saturday.
By Charles Chadwick.
Journal Special Service.
New York, Oct. 22.Saturday's game fur
nished much interesting football. There was a
lot doing in the east in spite of the rain and
mud, which were universal on the fields and
which would have caused under the old rules a
fairly monotonous series of pushplay contests.
There were many very brilliant individual plays,
particularly in the kicking line. This is the
most remarkable feature of the day when the
weather is considered.
And there were the usual number of surprises
handed out, too. The chief one was Harvard's
44 points against the team which had held Yale
down to two touchdowns. Harvard exhibited a
very fast article of new football and her steady
and consistently successful use of the forward
pass vuts her at the top of the heap today on
playifg form.
But her lead over Yale and Princeton is by
no means a serious one. The condition of the
grouud had a great deal to do with the over
whelming victory over the light but fast eleven
of the Springfield training school, which played
to so much better advantage against Yale on a
dry day.
Wet Favors Huskies.
It would seem that a wet day favors the
heavy team the same as it used to under the old
rules. It was the same way at Philadelphia,
where Dennie and Mayhew, Brown's 100-yard
flyers,. could make no headway against Pennsyl
vania's team.
But Harvard's Captain Foster and Newhall,
Orr and Lincoln, her brilliant coterie of backs,
together with Left Tackle Osborn, proved a
bunch of mudhorses whose performances have
raised Harvard's hopes up to the limit. Prince
ton took. BuckneU's scalp about as easily as
Harvard took Springfield's. Thirty-two points
were run oft! in quick time. But Princeton was
scored against by one of the most creditable in
dividual plays of the day^and there were many.
A Princeton quarterback Kick was snapped up
by Bucknell on the' 25-yard line. Clark, Buck
neU's right halfback, sent a drop kick clean over
the bar from the 40-yard line.
The performance was especially meritorious,
not only because of the weather and Hhe dis
tance, but because it was made against a much
superior teanu Drop kicks from the 46-yard
line are rare occurrences, even when the kicker
Is protected by a first-class line.
Field Goals Numerous.
In fact, tho number of successful field goals
in Saturday's contest is amazing. In addition to
Clark's kick, Harlin of Princeton toed one over
the bar toward the -end of the same contest. At
New Haven Knox sent the leather between the
posts from placement on the 30-yard line.
Captain Greene*". Pennsylvania accomplished
a rather remarkable performance at Philadel
phia, a place kick from scrimmage on the
36-yard line. The difficult part of this feat
lies in the fact that there is no time to sight the
ball. It is caught, placed and kicked with
almost the rapidity of a drop kick. In fifteen
years of football the writer has never seen this
done before in a contest on a muddy flelct

Urbana, in., Oct. 22.Fast performance by
the Illinois regulars against the freshmen. Sat
urday and the low score of the Michigan-Ohio

that the local eleven will be able to battle on

"MORT" NEWHALL. HARVARD'S FAMOUS LITTLE QUARTERBACK.
ILLUSTRATING ANOTHER POSITION OF HOLDING THE BALL FOR A
By C. S. Sherman.
Special to The Journal.
Lincoln, Neb., Oct. 22.If football want ads
were in vogue in western college circles, Amos
P. Foster, coach at Nebraska university, would
undoubtedly be a bull on the market. Mr.
Foster and bis cornhuskers are in dire need of
a competent, experienced quarterback, and the
possession of such a player has become an im
mediate necessity to ward off the danger of a
season of disastrous defeats.
Nebraska's defeat in Saturday's clash with
the Ames Aggies was not unexpected. The dope
credited Ames with a fast, aggressive eleven,
and one having an advantage of the cornhuskers
in avoirdupois. The score of 14 to 2 was a
decisive triumph'for. Ames, but .the statistics
of the struggle show that the cornhuskers were
not outclassed and that. they held their con
querors virtually on even terms in many de
partments of the contest. In ground-gaining
Nebraska" was the equal of Ames, and in punting
the advantage was slightly in the cornhuskers'
favor. Nebraska's defense ..proved especially
virile, the forwards and backs breaking thru
repeatedly and nailing the Ames runner for a
loss.
The one dominating factor quite clearly in
Ames' success was Jeansem the Aggies' clever
captain and quarterback. Jeanson^s generalship,
his swift returns ot punts and his accurate
drop-kicking were as brilliant as was ever wit
nessed on Nebraska field, With, Jeanson in the
Ames line-up, the Iowans were Invincible with
out him the two elevens were evenly mated
and the contest, barring flukes, could not have'
been other than a tie.
Attack Versatile.
The Ames attack, which Jeanson directed,
was strikingly effective in its versatility. He
gave proof early in the struggle that he realized
the futility Of playing
*he new game under
the tactic* of the old, and his style was a
fast-moving plan of punting, double and triple
passes and onslde kicks. His team-mates were
coached as well as himself to the new style
and the departure was so wide from the tactics
in vogue in previous seasons that the veteran
players in the cornhusker: line-up were fairly
bewildered. Jeanson's policy was to work the
ball within drop-kicking distance of the Ne
braska goalposts, and it succeeded admirably in
almost every detail. McElhinney, the speedy
right end, captured one of Nebraska's double
passes and ran for the only touchdown of the
game, but this play was -a manifestation of
good fortune and not design, but Jeanson's sys
tem and the prowess of his boot alone were more
than a match for the best Nebraska had in
shop.
The triumph of Ames, besides being fairly
decisive, forces the husky Aggies into the lime
light as likely Missouri valley champions. They
are only a few pounds short in weight of the
ideal football team, and with Jeanson as their
general and drop-kicker, their possibilities can
not be gainsaid. The crucial contest for Ames
comes next Saturday against Minnesota on
frorthrop field. The gophers are expected to

outweigh the Aggies by a small margin, but
the football game of 1906 Is a different proposi
tion from that of former years. Ames has al
ready participated in five games and has been
in practice since early in September. In thi*
they will have a tremendous advantage over
the gophers, who have yet to play their first
game and whose line-up is even now in doubt.
Minnesota had agents on Nebraska field watch
ing Saturday's conflict, and the speed, aggress
iveness and versatility displayed by Ames was
well calculated to alarm the gopher scouts con
cerning the outcome of the coming /clashr Ris
tine, the Ames coach, thinks himself Justified
in predicting an Ames victory. Barring the
possibility of a slump in form, the followers of
football in the Nebraska camp will not be sur
prised if Ames takes Minnesota's measure.
Foster Not Discouraged..
Foster, the Nebraska coach, is neither dis
heartened nor discouraged 'over the cornhusk
ers' defeat. Discussing the result, Foster said:
"The ruling ofx Umpire Graham in penalizing
Nebraska on the ground that Johnson, our left
end, interfered with Jeanson's free catch,' after
which Graham advanced the ball fifteen yards,
was not Justifiable, as I saw the play, and s
many hundreds of the spectators also saw it.
The decision gave Jeanspn a 'free kick from
placement on the 25-yard line, and it .was. easy
for him to send the ball over the goalbar. This
gave the Aggies their first score, and the effect
:.vas to dishearten the Nebraska team. Our de
fense was even stronger than I had hoped for,
and the entire team played with admirable
courage and spirit. McElhinney's touchdown was
a. fluke which might not happen again in a
dozen games, but it was Jeanson who beat us,
and nobody else. Give Nebraska a quarterback'
of Jeanson's class and drop-kicking ability, an
would not fear the results
in our two hardesd
games of the year, Minnesota and Chicago,
which are still to come. I don't blame Cooke,
Nebraska's quarter, as he Is inexperienced and
has not yet learned the game. .1 still think he
has possibilities and-1 intend to use him'at the
position unless Gus Bender, who has promised
to join the squad this week, shows- superior
adaptability, In which event he will be shoved
in at quarter. A good field general and. a tairly
accurate drop-kicker would make the Nebraska
eleven twice as strong as now. The season is
not yet half gone, and we may develop both
"before it is over."
Several of the cornhuskers were badly buffeted"
in the tackling in the Ames game,, and their
bruises may keep them out of the practice for
at least a week. Nebraska expects an e&jy
gams next Saturday with Doane. thus permitting
a strong line-up for the bout with the gophers
in Minneapolis Nov. 3. Taylor, the husky nrrq
guard, is scarcely a possibility, as he has not
yet squared his scholarship deficiencies. Weller,
the 190-pound halfback, was in action in a part
i of the Ames game and was a tower of strength
in the backfield. The strength of the Nebraska
line against Ames surpassed Foster's expecta
tions, and if the quarterback problem can, only
be worked out satisfactorily the cornhuskers
hope to give Minnesota and Chicago a stiff
battle for the honors.
MANAGER OF KELLY
GALLS JACK O'BRIEN
Special to The Journal.
Chicago, Oct. 22.S. Ferretti, manager of
Hugo Kelly, the Italian middleweight local
champion, whose stationery bears. the heading,
"Middleweight Champion of the World," said
today: "O'Brien's demand that Kelly must make
a side bet if he wants to get a match with the
Philadelphia Beau Brummell, is to laugh. We'
have had $5,000 posted In Indianapolis for six
months waiting for Philadelphia Jack to come
to life and show indications that he will- fight
Kelly. After ,Kelly .defeated O'Brien so de
cidedly in .Indianapolis, Jack went east and
told them about being robbed of a decision, and
that the police told him to go easy or they
would stop the fight that for fear of hurting
the game he fought easy with Kelly, when he
could have put him out at any stage of the
game. The Indianapolis sports who saw the
battle, heard of the talk and raised a pnrse
of $5,000," which they hoisted Immediately, ask
ing O'Brien if he would meet Kelly again in^a
twenty-round bout, and saying he could have a
side bet of $3,000 or any part of it as an induce
ment. O'Brien never took any notice of the
challenge or forfeit, and has been going around
taking on a lot of easy marks for small purses.
If O'Brien "Is sincere in his latest announce
ment, he can sign articles and we will bet
him $5,000 at even .money on the result. Fur
thermore he can name his own terms for the
fight, winner-take all or-split the coin any
way he likes."

International Hockey 4eague
Magnates Will Hold Meet
ing in Chicago.
Journal Special Service.
Calumet, Mich., Oct. 22.A lively interest is
developing In the affairs of the International
Hockey league, which wiU bold its schedule
meeting in Chicago on Nov. 11. At that time
the clubs which will comprise the league during
the coming season will be given franchises and
the .schedule arranged. Gossip is rife regarding
the makeup of the league territory next win
ter, and it Is the consensus of opinion that
some new and strong members will be admitted.
There is very little probability of Chicago
being in the league during the approaching sea
son, but it is counted upon for a.team a year
from next winter. Detroit may possibly put a
professional hockey clnb into the field this
year, and there appears to be very little ques
tion but what Cleveland will Join the Interna
tional league. Columbus and Cleveland should
prove a mighty factor in the success of the
game In the east, as at present Pittsburg is the
only city to that section which has a. professional
hockey club. With these three cities In the
league the coatly trips to Pittsburg which have
proved BO expensive in former seasons, will
be a thing of the past. Winnipeg is flirting
with the International league and that hotbed
of hockey enthusiasm may be represented by a
professional club this year. Winnipeg promot
ers tried to get into the International league
last winter, but their application was received
too late for acceptance.
Star hotkey players will be much in demand
this year, as a result of the new clubs which
will be organized. It Js estimated that twenty
five to thirty new members will be required In
the International league, and the managers of
the different teams will soon be signing up their
players. The International league magnates re
cruit their teams from Canada, and the good
players are becoming scarcer as the professional
game spreads in this country.
Boy Brown will manage, captain and play for
the Canadian Soo club in the International league
this year. The Canadian Soo will have prac
tically a new team this year. The Canadian
Soo club has organized as follows: President,
J. H. D. Brown vicepresident, Thomas E. Simp
son secretary, Malcolm Laughton treasurer,
William O'Brien executive committee, B. H.
Sweetser, M. E. Gooswin, J. Hockshaw, J. Cul
ber, George Millington, George Fisher.
It Is expiated that the Calumet Hockey club
will be* in the hands of twenty men this year,
as it has been decided to organize an association
to run the team separately from' the Palestra
rink. Several new players will be necessary this
year, as it is proposed to have one of the best
teams in the league.
There is a possibility of the American Soo
losing Jack Laviolette and Petrie, two of its star
men. They have received very flattering offers
from a* new professional club which is being or
ganized in Montreal. Wherever one goes the
other will go, as they have-played hockey to
gether for years and will not separate. Laviol
ette was captain of the Soo team last year. He
and Petrie are two of the best hockey players
in the world.
Hod Stuart will again manage and captain the
Pittsburg club. Little is known regarding the
personnel of the team which will represent Pitts
burg this year, but neither of the Sixsmith
brothers are likely to be in the game again, and
men will be needed to fill their positions.

PROFESSIONAL TEAMS
BARBED BY INDIANS
Special to The Journal.
Chicago, Oct.. 22.The Carlisle Indian eleven
will play no more games with professional
teams. The management of the Canton Ath
letic club team here received word to this effect
from the Indian management.
Last year the Indians played the Massillon
tigers and later played^the Canton team at
Canton. They lost both games and several of
their players were crippled. It was thought at
the time that the Indians would cut out these
games in the future. Sheldon, the Canton
halfback, formerly a member of the Carlisle
eleven, did"his best to get his old team-mates
to play at Canton, but even his personal efforts
were fruitless.
The Massillon tigers were scheduled to play
the Indians in Cleveland this fall, when Carlisle
made Its western trip. Cleveland enthusiasts
have been anxiously awaiting the announcement
that the game would, be played, and will doubt
less be greatly disappointed.

again by the board this season. Each team will
be permitted to arrange its own schedule up to
Nov. 10. On that date the board will pick the
four strongest teams to play for the champion
ship. The semi-finals will be played on Nov. 17
and the final game on Nov. 24.
Sault Ste. Marie has a strong team this fall.
It will play Marquette on Oct. 27 and meet
the queen city boys on their own grounds in a
return game on Nov. 10. Several other games
will be arranged.
Calumet has arranged the following games:
At Hancock, Oct. 27 at Marquette, Nov. 3 at
Ishpeming, Nov. 10. Efforts are being made to
arrange a game with Houghton, and if a date
cannot be secured with that team, the L'Anse
highs will be played. Calumet's team has lost
some of its best players, and on form should
not prove as strong as last year's team.
The Ishpeming team has started out with a
great deal of enthusiasm, and there is reason
to believe that the hematite pity team will prove
a strong contender for the championship, as in
former years. All the new men,are fast and
have been playing the game for several years.
It is expected that the Menominee, Ironwood
and Escanaba teams will be in the championship
race. Escanaba's team is said to be particu
larly strong. Not so much is known regarding
the Menominee and Ironwood squads, but both
are said to be fast. Hancock has six veterans
In Its line-up, and Its new men are said to be
fast. Bessemer and Houghton also will hart
a team.
