In the Wake of the Game
By GUS MALBERT
If Jitumie Thorpe hud rcn dcied no other service to athletic*, he can rest
secure in that particular niche in the athletic Hall el Fame which is left
for those who negatively acomplish aomethin*. Thorpe played professional
baseball :uid as pa>uient for that infringement of the rules of amateurism
lie Is deprived of the glories as expressed In tangible prir.es, coming to him
from defeating the best the world could produce in the Pentathlon and .De?
cathlon at Stockholm
Since tie (barges were made, and since the In.I an. guided, we presume,
by ?.leim Warner, made bis confesion. winch, cruel as it may appear, was
j nothing more nor less than a recital of that winch was Known by too many
. pie to be hushed, there have been many varying opinions expreeeed. The
highbrows in the world of sport have to a man expressed an opinion that the
Amateur Athletic I'nlon did the only thing left ? removal of (be guilty person

all si these laws Itt i.orn n> c of the law can excuse no man. especially when
1 the man found guilts is also discovered to huve agreed to the monetary con
SidSratioa .1 nomiaiaylng the violation. Thorpe's excuse that he thought
1 s was Solas sa STlWeag b) slaying profesional baseball is thrown to the four
winds when the further note in his confession is found that be felt, since the
dine loan re. thai the mal mistake he made was in playing under bis own name.
-He know of other College mem guilty of the same offense, but they changed
; their names If in no other wa>. Thorpe here admits his culpability.
There is no need for hysterics. Those of us who watch the hands go round,
I who keep some fingers on the athletic -ulse, know that all is not as it should
! be. Thorpe cried m ever signing the application sent him when he competed
for the privilege ..I' representing this country In the Olympic games. He knew
then, and he knows now. thai UttdOt the rules of the A A 1'. his status as an
amateur bad ? rlghl ta be queetloned. We would not take from him one whit
of the glorj wl.i. h is his as the greniawl living athlete Hut this Is not a quse
tion of athletii prowess, it is a question of ethics, and Thorpe stands con?
futed. He has Solved it all b] signing a professional baseball contract.
Kammer baseball, as appl.d t<> ...liege athletes, will always be a source
of trouble From any standpoint. Bummer baseball for the college athlete Is
b.i 1 W riting in the New Vet k Baa, Herbert l>aly voices a sentiment so near?
ly in consonance with our own that we reprint it: "If the college athlete would
play baseball or any other professional sport for money to pay his expenses
through college, his ambition Is rnmmsnflshls. and the method of obtaining his
ambiti?s should not be questioned." he savs. "Hut such an athlete should
he barred from participation in college athletics. To not bar him opens wide an
I opportunity foi proesljrt lllng Snj branch of spoits. Which, if It Is -lot un
deratod by even the veriest layman, cannot be successfully explained.'" That's
? the Idas Lei them do what tag] will, so long as It is honest, to earn a way i
; hrough colece, but never let them be a part of amateur iolege Athletics That's
the weahnea of the arguments oftho se who deplore the fact that a poor young
j man. vv ih th very laudable ambition of getting a college education, cannot p'ay
I summer baseball. He can. and he can have the exercise as well, but he is ,
j barred from intercollesre amateur competition.
lie can play summer baseball, or summer anything else That Is r.o In
; blbltiOn. or need lie be deprived of taking healthy exercise when he re
i turns to college Put lie is prevOBted from taking part in athletics In the con -
I petlttVS college games If such a rule did not hoM. why prevent men who are
receiving salary iron: the several colleges, but who are in no sense profes?
sionals, front playing on the college teams. As we Im.e said, these hysterical
, utterat.ee>. sentimental as they are. and carrying weight to the sentimentally
inclined, if alowed to hold will strike a vital blow at the very warp and woof
Thorpe stands to-day as the greatest of all living athletes He won fairly
and honestly. IJut lie was a professional. Therefore he suffered, if drawing
something better thai: |a,(. f"t si\ month's service as a result can be called
suffering. Put he ili.I something He has shown the way for that great middle
ground along which the question of amateurism and profe?sionalism may be
threshed oal to a setlefaetnrj %anrlaslnn However, summer aaaamsll win
nevt : be permitted in the colleges Which have the highest SlaSdSld for the men
who participate in intercollek-e competition.
As for the A. A. I.', there are many rulings of that body which fail to
appeal to us For Instance, the A. A. 17. rules that members of an amateur
tcari playing t I s.i.i e team with a professional become professionals Also
that any team playing against anv team on which a profesional is discovered
likewise becomes profesional. both as a team and as individuals The sav?
ing clause of "knowingly.'' it i? true, is added, but even that ? lause fans For
; si.i... c. the University Of V:rgir.ia will play the Washington League team
this spriag. Harvard's baseball team will plav the Boston American league
team. There can be no question but that every member of these two university ;
teams knows that both the Washington and Boston teams are professional,
yet. under the ruling, or rules, of the A. A 1'.. both the L'niversity of Virginia
In gabs II club and Harvard's would immediately become tainted with iirofes- ,
The fault does not lie so much with the >fTicia!s of the A. A F as with the
