Committee Recommends
Amendments to Amateur
Baseball Commission.
The mies i ommlttee of the amateur
baseball commission held u busy ses?
sion yesterday afternoon and after a
careful study of all the suggestions
made by 'he several leagues and man?
agers, decided upon some changes
which will be recommended to the
commission at a meeting which will pro
liubly be held eaily next Week. While
no provision was incoorated in the rules
reducing the number of clubs in rgfig
league to four, the maximum num?
ber was reduced from eight to six.
with the recommendation that the
leagues, as far us possible be com?
posed only <>f four teams. The
whole question revolved around the
number of games played between
each of the teams in any given league. 1
Kour clubs will allow the clubs to
meet more frequently and it Is for this
reason that the committee suggests ]
the changes.
The waiver rule was amended
that it is mandatory upon the clubs to
ask waivers from ench of the other j
clubs in a given league before a player,
Is released. Last year this was op
tiotial and some trouble arose there?
from, empires will be required to !
send a written report to the secretary
of the commission after each game,
re. I ting the ocr urences of that contest.
Proteste il any. and other items which
the commission will want to know.
There were a number of other changes
suggested all of which will be presented
to tho commission.

That was a happy thought on the part of President Henry Louis Smith, of
Washington and Lse university, when he told the alumni of that ins'itution that
too much attention was paid m colleges to highly developing a few men along
I physical lines at the expense and to the loss of the rest of the student body
I far. Smith very rightly holds that physical development should be an etna of the
(university or college; that whils teams are very good things, the individual
{should not be lost sight of. lie wants all the men trained phvslcallv as well
I as mentally, and he is righ*. Kverv man entering a university should be given'
1 an opportunity to develop along phystoal lines and sholud not be made to feel 1
i out of place because he cannot make the team.
This thing of highly developing the few has gone too far Th? pendulum i
I about to swing in t he Ol her direction. Along with the awakening in cities w, the
'fact that the development of the man and boy. woman and g;r' along physical
lines is just as essential as 'heir development along moral and mental lines, um
I versities and colleges aro also getting la im?'. The misfortune is that our great
J seats of learning, such as Washington and Lee and the ITu\ rrsit" of Virginia. V. |
!m. I. and V. P. I., have not beea the advance guards lnthis principle. Extra
! dinary football teams and baseball teams and track teams are go.,.) things, but j

tunny to develop. By doing this each man turned out with the glow- of health in ,
