(Special to The Times-Dispntch.] bhorlottesvtlle, Vn., February ".? Virginia showed a complete reversal of form in the- game with Georgetown to-night, and defeated the redoubtable Catholic quint 3S t<> 10, in the best game of the season. Trainer Lanhtgah had *n for both I halves men Who have been dually ' picked for the first team, ami they | V-"ll put up a splendid article of ball. -The shifting of Kearns front guard to forward worked wonders^ for be was a. good companion for Rlxey, the .other forward, who often brought the [jei'owd to its feet with spectacular .losses, scoring eight goals In all: Captain Cecil was In tho game as 3ils true self for the first lime since his recent sickness, and his dribbling and accurate passing were responsible ifor many points. Campbell hnd .tones did not give Georgetown a chance at ?the baskets. The team snowed a great improvement, individually und collectively. There were stars on Georgetown, but resolute guarding kept tnem down, i Barrfccllo got over a basket when bei was given the least opportunity, ahti Martin gave Virginia a start with ? big brace in the second half, when ho ihre.v three goals In rapid succession. Ijambcrton was put in during the sec? ond half, anil figured in the sprint of iho second hall that threatened lie? fen t. At. the end of the first half I he score was It! to 7. A pass from Rlxey to .tones caused the first goal, and I learns tdid two pretty ones within the netting. Barrlcello tallied with a toss from the side, but Rlxey came back with two ppints. Georgetown aimed at too long distances, but Schlosser finally got an opening and whs followed by Ulxey, Barricello netted a goal, and Cecil ran down the Hour for a. beautiful throw that was successful. Rlxey made goal from foul, and Cecil's dribbling gave .Tones a chance to put one In. The second half opened with two goals, right off the jump, by Rlxey. Reams (limited another in. and Lambbrton's j aim was good for a Georgetown gain. Campbi U's throw, front near the grhlddie "f the floorj was tho host of tiK- game, and Rlxey's toss right after, swelled the scon-. Georgetown ap? peared to bi?, rallying when Martin aviated t\vo, ov*r- within a minute, and Schlosser reached up tor one, after Campbell bail followed suit. Good passing and blocking by Vir-, ginia gave Rlxey a chance to secure' i!t.- game with three goals, and Jones doubly insured It with two more for jgood measure. .lones placed another in .tust as tho whistle, blew, but bo had i?.ken one too many steps und It -was liol counted.

Spring Moot Requires Attention. .Manager Corlcy, who will accompany the team. will, as soon as he returns, begin work in earnest oil the great outdoor meet to bo held here at the ball park In April. He has been re? tarded in his plans because of the George Washington meet. There were many details, to bo looked after, and he could neglect none of them. For this reason his time has been com? pletely occupied. But with the out-of-town event off of his hands, he will have plenty of time to look after tho approaching show. 1.otters must be written to all of the but-ofrtbwn universities, col? leges and prep, schools to be Invited to the meet. Tho several schools n?> cop ting must ho classed. Sanction ofj tile A. A. r. must, be secured, und. in fuct. other tilings too numerous to men? tion must be attended to. Unless all plans fall, ibis spring meet should be the very greatest of its kind I ever hold In Richmond, f-'?? far as can be learned, all of the institutions to be invited look kindly on the affair and will send their athletes. Virginia will surely be on hand, and so will George? town and GcOrgo Washington. Very likely Johns Hopkins will have a team in the field, and 11 Is certain that Wil? liam and Mary, II ninpiicn-Sidney and Randolph-Macon will compete. In ad-| ditlon, the many prop, schools will bei asked, and a ,goodly proportion will be on hand. Owner Bradley has agreed to let the collegians have the ball park at a nom? inal charge, and It is believed that the ! merchants in this city will come .across with the prizes to lie offered. Cohsld j crable expense attaches to holding a j meeting such us will be tho spring (?vent, nnd the local school needs the support <>f every one. in the city. By the middle or April the track squad at the college should be In its lest condition, and the men ripe to make good time. Magaman Is of the opinion that the material he has on hand, if properly developed, can do credit to the city and to the school. All that remains Is to secure the. sup? port of the people, for whoso benefit the games are being arranged. ATHl.KTK; ASSOCIATION tlH(i\M7,r.ll IN IHUSTOI. (Special to The Tine s-Dispatch. | Bristol.

CLOSER TOGETHER That Is Result of Good Roads Conference Held in ' This City?Farmers Look Forward to Time When Auto Will Be Used on Farm. As an uficrinaiii to the good roatls conference Jield at the Richmond Hotel Thursday night, when the supervisors of roads and the members of the Leg? islature in the counties between Hits city and Gordonsvillc, togcttier witn members of the Richmond Automobile Club, mingled and discussed lite pro? posed highway between Richmond and t iordonsvlllc, organizing the Rich- j mond-l,oidsa-Cordons\'llle lUghway As? sociation, conies the announcement from II. Crimm Peck, secretary of the new organization, that many names in addition to those printed yesterday morning have been received as appli? cants for membership: The new organisation is scheduled to hold meetings from time to time uhu to discuss ail of the details which will arise as che road is being built. It 's especially gratifying to those who have been most deeply interested to see the manner in which the various supervisors, who have the binden of actually building the road to contend with, have taken to the proposed high? way. They have pledged thoinsol V-.'S to do all ih their power to see all Ol tb<- plans laid brought to a success: ful fruition. Several of the delegates remained over until ycstertluy and visited tit. various points of interest, from a good toads standpoint, around Richmond. To u man they were more than pleased with the reception they had received, and were of the opinion that thp meet? ing had been ji great success and had given them an opportunity to more thoroughly understand the motives which actuated the ntitoihobilists of Richmond in desiring bettor roads. Needs of FnrmerN l-'irst Ciini?hler?tioii, It was clearly brought out at llio meeting that the desire of the Rich? mond] Automobile Club was not to se? cure h great highway for automobil ists. but to secure a good working road for the bcnellt oC those who lived jalong the route of the road, so thut tnby could haul their products to and from market at less expentfo; A natu? ral result of such a roadway would he (hat those who drove motor cars would he no lit. That u new impetus has been given good roads because of I he Richmond eonforenee goes without saying. .Man.. who came to the meeting antagonistic, to the men who drive gasoline bug? gies left with the kindliest Iecllng 'ti the world, and with the determinai.on to go home and tell their people that 'tlie Richmond Automobil,, ?Muh would countenuncti no fast of reckless driv : ing vlong ithy road. At ieas< such ' was the talk hearti among the tlclc , gates. And it was thought 1.ilintiy. [titling that a permanent organization ; had bei n formed. I "The new organization." said one imam who had been identified with the I meeting, "w ill serve to brTng its coun? try people and you city 1.pie elos-ov together, so thai We can undor.stnnu each other and work in harmony in? stead of at cross purposes; We real? ize in the country thai the automobile has come to stay.

Kvcry one realizes that the road is a necessity, and all an- rotidy and willing to work together in order to bring about, the desired result. FEW CHANGES MADE IN FOOTBALL RULES Periods Between Quarters Reduced and New Spot Fixed for Application of Forward Pass Penalties?Synopsis of Amendments. Now York, February 3;?The Inter? collegiate Football K?los Com inltt.ee did a little more surgery on the game at a meeting in New York to-day. With K. K. Hall, of Dartmouth, as chairman, ami Walter Camp, as secre? tary; the committee decided that inter? missions were too long, and reduced the periods between the first and second and the third and fourth Quarters from three minutes to two minutes. A new rule was adopted permitting teams, by agreement, to transfer the supervision of offside piny upon the line of scrim? mage from umpire to head linesman. The linesman, however, is to report nny infraction to the umpire. Another .new rule adopted provides that throwing a player to the ground after the referee has declared the ball dead may be considered unnecessary roughness. An amendment wa3 adopt? ed allowing only three men to walk Up and down the Held on each side of the line. The present rule allows five men. If lue ball accidentally strikes an "Hi clal, provides another amendment, it shall hot become dead, but play shall continue. A new rule adopted spec!lies that all penalties under the ruh- regulating the: forward pass shall i>" applied from the] spot of the down, and not on the spot from which the pass was made. j The committee transferred the duty ? if keeping time from the field judge to the umpire, and In rub r>. section ~. [which provides that a player, In catch in. g for a pass, shall not he tackled or shouldered until he has caught the ball and "taken more than one step in any direction," the -.cords "taken more than one step in any direction*' were stricken out. After tlte conference Mr Hall said. "The reason that the committee made so few changes in that we feel the game has accomplished what the now rules [Started out to do?the elimination of serious Injuries?arid that It was now n safe and playable game."

So Guy Tit man wants to no West, ft strikes me that the rory best tiling for hi in to do Is to gi> to work. Guy has every ear? mark of a great ball player, hut he is in? clined to loaf, and loafers never draw big salaries in any line, of business It is a peculiar thins that when I remark? ed a few weeks ago that all of the managers in the league were engaged in a big-sized guessing h'-e and that not a single one ,,f I Hem knew what the other one was doing some of my friends made fun of the story, Whllo the fit was on me I delivered my? self of some trito, yot trenchant remarks, m the effect that every manager was keeping i hold of all of the hall players he had last | year that he wanted. This also brought snickers from the gallery. Now these same individuals arc shouting 1 at the top of their voIccb. with their Iuii?k I puffed oat, just what I have raid all of the time, and adding that 11 is essential to rai.<"^ the salary limit in order to get ball players. Certainly you need more money if you oro coiner in keep the men who played in th. league last year. The teams were costing! more than 12,000 a month last yoar. and <li?-! salary limit is only $1,3<<0 this year. .Se.-ms to me.

I and get a crowd which would fit In tho now I salary limit. Maybe they were talking in chimpanzee and I couldn't understand. Hut anyway. I still maintain that each manager is loary | of the others, and for that reason is hold- I ing on to what ho has got in the way o' serviceable ball players and at the. same time getting more.
