College basket-ball in the District
1ms been on the decline for the past
several years, and simply becawe the '
ru'cs have not been strictly enforced
by the coaches?not the officili?. For
the past few years .the rules ha'e
been strictly enforced by the offi ?
c,als in the High School serie*, uut
tl i.-i has not been so insofar as col
lege games that have been played.
A year or so ago one of the officials
in the High School basket-ball aeries
vas asked the question. Why he did
not enforce the iules In the college
games in which he officiated? His
statement was that his employers did
not want the rules enforced, as u
slowed up the game too much to have
all the offenste called. The trouble
has always been that college players
have not been coached to p?ay th?*
game in strict accordance with the
rat??. If such were the case, the
necessity to call fouls would be dimin
ished to such an extent that very few
offense? would be committed.

For the? past several years the
writer. Prof. Becket. of the Y. M. C. I
?.. and coaches of the High School <
:utnts have advocated more cleanll- ?
n?, ss in basket-bill contests, but it
has never been demonstrated in col
lege and independent teams. That is
why the presence in our midst of Joe

ules in every game in which he offi

Too Much Baseball Ardor
Betrays Missing Husband
Stamford. Conn.. Feb. IS.?That
her husband was such an enthusi
astic baseball fan. that In trying
to locate him she had to tour the
country to watch big league
games, was the contention of Mil
dred Cohn, of Noroton, Conn., who
obtained a divorce today In the
Superior Court at Bridgeport from
Edwin E. Cohni * of New York.
The young wife said that after
her husband had deserted her on
November 19, Itali, she thought the
only way to trace him would be
by writing to various big league
managers with whom Cohn was
acquainted. She wrote to Manager
i'onnie Mack, of the Philadelphia
Athletics, and he informed her
that Cohn was In the Quaker City.

Eleven Players in 9-Inning
Game Without a Putout
At Initial Corner.
Several times I have noticed th?
statement printed in guid?e aa well
as article? that there have been but
five ball players coverin? first base
that have gone through a recular
game of nine Innings without hav
ing a put out credited to them.
I also have a letter from a fan
In Washington asking me to *iv?
the correct number of playera who
have performed thla most remark
able feat.
For tb* benefit of many f will for
the first time print the names and
dates on which a first baseman haa
done thla. '
Two Im Major?.
Flret of all I wish to call par
ticular attention .'?at but two men
have ever gone through a regular
game playing for a major league club.
This seems strange when you figure
that during the existence of the
(National League, which haa already
! played forty-four years, and the
' American League, which has put In
'nineteen years, making in all sixty
three years of play. When you figure
that during all those years the clubs
have averaged, we will aay 130
games each, and there were twelve
clubs in the National League for
eight years, you can figure what an
(Opportunity there must have been
, for not more than two nien to have
made this record.
The first major to get credit for
playing a game without a put-out
at first was Jl?gs Donohue, of the
Chicago White Sox. He played in a
! game at New York and the only i
; chance he had was an assist. This ?
game was played May. 23, 1906.
The player who did this In the
National League was Artie ("Circus
Solly") Hofman. He also wore a
Chicago uniform except he was with
the Cubs. Thus the only two play- I
ers in the major leagues who went '
without a put-out wore Chicago uni- |
? forma.
.Substituir ?firk-rr.
The game tn which Hofman ma?
his record was played in Plttsbur-.
June 24, 1910. Hofman was play
ing the bag in place of Chance,
who was on th?? sick list.
Tommy Leach hit the first ball |
pitched to Tinker at short, and the
ball was thrown directly Into the
watting hands of Hofman. He
dropped It. That was all the
chame he had during the remainder
of the game.
Next day I asked Tinker?who
owns the Columbus ? American As
sociation) club?what he thought of
the wonderful record of Hofman,
for it was wonderful when you
consider that for thirty-four years,
no man had ever done what Circus
had just done.
"Why," said Joe. without a smile,
"I don't see anything remarkable
about that. You a? me hand him
a nice ball right into his waiting
hands. What did h*> do? Drop it?
Then why glv** him any more
chjincesr* I thought that was the
best way to describe why a first
baseman went through a game
without a putout.
Eleven Have Ileeord.
There have been but eleven play
ers who hold this record, one of
them beine: McCauIey. playing first
for Washington when that club was,
' in the old American Association,
back in 1891.
Here Is the complete record:

One of the kid? wanted to know
how ?oon the winnings were to be
?pllt and Nick, who wa? ?takehcJ.dcr.
thought It would be a good Idea to
do ao at one?.
They all got over into ? corner and
Nick, who h?d ?Jit. . ?. ??? . s o ... .?
tlO and put that carefully Into hi?
?Ide pocket. "You know we must re
turn this to th? gentleman who
loaned It-" "Certainly.'? came the r?
?ponce. "we may want to borrow It
ovei again "
Then Nick paid off the two Elber
feld brother, with C each and took
two a, hi, ?hare. Thl? left four
bonea to be divided among tl
?Set? ll.able Par.
As there were eleven of them, Nick
got out hi? pencil and began to labor
a? to how much each received. "I've
got It. boys." he said, after a long
task. "Dividing eleven mm into the
four, I find that each man gets
Centn each." They took that amount
without a whimper. But later one of
the kids got wise and wanted to
know why the three players, who bad
received S2 each, alaao got Into the
?pllt- "Why. you see. It waa our
good planng that won the money for
you." wa? Nick's story, and that set
tled all argument?.
Now Nick wa? known to be ?ome
pool player, ao he Invited tome of the
boy? to Join blm In a little game of
pool. But before we play any pool,
?aid tbe crew, we must e?t_ When
they entered the dining room ?II the

kid lost his ticket, and the proprietor

Rat? livable Meal.
That wa? W cent? moie than the kid
.iad, and as the others were more or
less of the bellev-in; in keeping what
you got kind, could not see why they
had to cough up. Well, to make it
sho^t, the players. Who had their tick
ets and were in the dining room, de
cided that may must get even ?no
Altrock vow?, that each lud ?l? at

After the meal they all weat lut?

did not take hla long to et?ea a

''Bay. you big skinny guy. tell yev
what I'll do; I will play yon IM? ?I

'and being known a? the posi ahar?
