RUGBY STILE OF FOOTBALL WILL BE ULTIMATE SUCCESSOR TO AMERICAN Walter Camp and National Football Commission Considering_a Combination of Two Varieties of Play for Next Season~Nor-" them Fans Are Loud in Their Praise of Rugby and Possibilities in Sight for the Sport-Attendance at Games Much Greater Than Contests Held under the American Code Rugby will bo tho ultimate end of tlio present demand of rule revision in the American game. This is acknowledged by all of the unbiased ex perts, including the dean of them all, Walter lamp. Camps trip to the coast this year, coming as it did in the midst of Yale's busiest season of training, at a time when the Bulldogs nreded their director the most, could not be mis taken for a pleasure trip or a vacation tour. It was a business trip for rugby football information alone, and when t:ie rules committee meets again the 1910 crosK-countiy journey will figure large!/ in the deliberations of the code manglers. The American game, as it is, does not satisfy. The division of the game into quarters was the first bad break of the football commission, and it would be difficult to find a point in which the legislating body has not harmed the play both from the standpoint of player and spectator. A glance over the score sheets of the eastern and western schools who have adopted the new code r.nd endeavored to abide by its muddled variety of play will reveal the startling fact that scores have only been made through fumbles from i at snare and delusion, the forward pass, the rare success of that play, a stray field goal, or in case one eleven is vastly superior to another in every line of play. Results cannot be doped. The Prophets have died with the game. Injuries uuring the present season in football have been as many if not more than ever before. Deaths have been more numerous. Interest in the con tests have been kept up almost en tirely by the spirit of rivalry existing between the schools. Dissatisfaction with the nfw mips and football o£ the American style is voiced everywhere. There is no better solution than the English game, rugby. Prejudice has kept the eastern schools from bringing over our British cousins' national game before an l it now comes as the only remaining j means for saving football to the Amer- | lean college. Rugby has been given very little chance locally. The ardent followers of the American style are prone to call it dull and uninterest ing. Perhaps they are right in their stand when their limited basis of opin ion is taken into consideration. Rugby or American cannot be judged by a game played between a couple of tyro teams which are just learning the rudiments of the sport. The University of Southern Califor nia Law school was the first of the local institutions to show the fans a glimpse into rugby's possibilities. Their trip northward was wonderfully suc cessful considering their lack of ex perience. Another year will prepare them for more fields to conquer. Go to ; tanford, Berkeley, any of the northern schools, and ask them if they would take back the old style American game with Its old thrills and mass plays, its forward passes and line bucks, and you will not flnd an Individual who will drop a tear at the good old days when the American game was the all-in-all. Rugby sat isfies them. To anyone who found it possible to attend the big game last Saturday and questions the players, some of whom have played the Camp game In their high school days, there would be no doubt of the ultimate vic tory of the English game. Stan Mitchell, Harrigan, Cass, Reeves, Olmstead, Ted Gelssler, some o. the moot prominent of Angeleno's pig-skin chasers in the American stylo a year or so ago, have all gone over to the rugby side. No more of the American game for them. Twenty-five thousand converts were won to the English game Saturday on the Berke ley campus, even though the U. C. lif- MANAGERIAL PROTESTS BEFORE ARBITRATORS National Association of Profes sional Baseball Leagues in Session at Chicago CHICAGO, Nov. 14.— Baseball man agers' protests occupied the atten tion today of the arbitration board of the National Association of Profes sional Baseball Leagues; that is, when representatives of the Western and Three I leagues were not making ap peals that their classifications remain I undisturbed. This latter matter was watched even more closely by most of the other minor leagues than their own protests, which were being rele gated to the odd moments of the board's time thereby. Under a recent decision it was agreed that every ten years a re classiflcatlon of the leagues would bo made to regulate drafting and salo opportunities. Leagues populated by 1,000,000 Mr more persons should be In class A; those of 400,000 or more, in class B, etc., but now that the census has shown some of the clubs, particu- j larly those heard today, could not combine and produce the required numbers, they are relying- on various bases for holding their positions. The Western league's reminder to the board that ten years ago It had been promised a place In class A for i Its sacrifice to the American associa tion won favor and it was official)} agreed that the western should retain its class. The Three I's claim wr.s based on the proposition that a club's franchise covered a radius of five miles and accordingly it could muster more than its required 400,000. This, a new point, induced the board to agree tentatively that all matters of classification should be left to the whole association to deckle tomorrow. ] Judging from the expressed opin ions today, there Is little disposition on the part of the minor leagues to touch the classification matter now. It is argued that when a league is once j given a certain classification it works 1 a distinct property damage to re duce, it. Today'« protests adjusted by the board*of arbitration were few, chiefly because . Secretary Fan-ell's trunUful ! of evidence in the several ca^-s was ] lost and no canes could be heard. Its , belated arrival enabled the board to ' dispose of a few cases late in the day. HERALD SPORT BASEBALL RACING BOXING E. V. WELLER teen was vastly superior to the Car dinal team. The game was fast, fast er than the American game could hope to be; there was plenty of kicking, more than would be possible In the old stylo of play; there was more in dividual work, and, paradoxical as it may seem, more teamwork. The pass ing from forward to forward In the race down the field, six times the ball was passed in one play, which re sulted in a try, was a marvelous thing to one accustomed to the dilatory tac tics of tiio old game, and aroused an enthusiasm which is far beyond the possibilities of any play the American game has yet produced. Many stubborn opponents of rugby, and by the way they are only those who have never seen a real rugby contest, seem to think that the drib bling and kicking of the ball on the ground is anything but a point of ad vantage, and put in the claim that only in the American game is there a possibility of the real act of punting and drop kicking. It would have done such a thinker's heart good to see Brown send his Bpirals leaping into the air for gains of sixty-five yards and Dwiggins punting faultlessly back for the same distance. Brown's drop kick from midfleld to the bleachers at the end of the field, a clean seventy yard drop, which was well above the side arms of the goal posts and but a foot to the left, was without excep tion the longest drop kick ever made in the west, not even excepting the great work of the American game star, Walter Eckersall, formerly quarter back of Chicago. Outside of about five thousand of the students and their relatives, the annual meeting of Stanford and Berke ley on the gridiron depends for its bleacher fillers on the general crowd of fans. When you can coax twenty thousand from the opening day at a race track to a rugby game there must be something in the game besides rah rahism. Perhaps not next year, perhaps never in name, will the American schools adopt the English style of game, but the football commission is becoming converted to the idea of the rugby scrums and scrimmages and next sea son will see the American game more closely resembling its brother than ever before. W. H. Lucas was granted territo rial rights—permission to use terri tory for forming a new league—in Salt Lake City and Ogden, Utah; Butte, Helena, Great PalU and Mlssoula, Mont.; Boise City Tind Twin Falls, Idaho. The new organization Mill use the appellation, the Union League. The California Baseball league, which disbanded last year, wants sanction for a four-club circuit—San Jose, Stockton, Vnllejo and Oakland. The chief discussion tomorrow will be over classification. Leagues are .■hissed according to the population from which they draw their attend ance. This year's census 1.0 the first since organization, and since leagues hit by this clause probably will light for the elimination of the rule. The members of the board at the national session attacked the trunkful of claims and protests, the day's pro ceedings having scarcely made an im pression on the pile of evidence pre -1 senti'.i. i C, R, Murphy, manager of the Kear ney, Neb., team of the Nebraska State league, was declared ineligible for the season of 1911. Murphy was charged with assaulting 11. C. Slevers, presi dent of the league, after Slevera had suspended htm for six days for an al tercation with an umpire. The application of Stockton.

Mass., Nov. 14.—Head Coach Houghton and Captain Withing ton addressed the Harvard students' mass meeting here last night. Mr. Houghton said in part: '•We must meet Yale on the 19th In the crucial struggle of our schedule. We must win or our other victories go for naught. Our team Is a good one, but I warn it, as I have warned them, against overconfldence. Do I fear Yale? Well, I should say not. But I have a wholesome respect for them or for any athletic team that wears the blue. I remember 1897 and 18'J9. I have seen them apparently on the downward path, bound back to the top of the heap when the coming of the Crimson was heralded. "The new game has brought In its train many new phases and in Its very nature may sway an unlooked for vic tory Yalewards. The West Point and Brown games, both of which I have witnessed, showed the Blue playing a game that was away off from what they are capable of doing. They were not playing to their true form. We must see to it that they do not fall into their stride against us on the 19th." ■» « » Sport Gossip Errors in dispatches from the east have set loyal sons of Minnesota dis puting, the printed word. In the tele grams it was stated Michigan and the Gophers played their last game of foot ball six years ago. This was certain ly an error, for the teams lined up on Northrop field last year and Mlnneso tans had to sit there and see their prides defeated. Saturday's game is attracting plenty of local attention, because of the large number of former Minnesotans now residing here. Michi gan also has plenty of adherents, and i- each contingent is backing its team to win the Middle West championship this season is calling for plenty of wagering on all sides. Sid Totten, dealer in shaves and ' stogies, returned from an eastern trip yesterday, and in spite of a pleasant time beyond the big hills was mighty glad to get back. Totten says pros pects for racing In Chicago some time soon are brighter than they have been for ears, but hardly thinks much of a meeting will be held in the Windy City, if they get so far as to start. Sid saw the Cuba take two out of three beatings on their own west side lot, I and was among those who mourned with the Peerless Leader and his fol- I lowers.

MINNESOTA PLAY WINS GAME FROM PRINCETON Tackle Shift Which Demoralized Tiger Line Invented by Coach Williams NEW HAVEN, Conn., Nov. U.—la response to numerous inquiries from Yale men all over the country about the origin of the great tackles shift play which Is credited with winning Saturday's game from Princeton, the Yale coaches have explained that the play is derived from the famous tackles-back attack, and it was said from the brain of the inventor of that play, Harry L. Williams, Yale '91, now head coach at the University of Min nesota. Williams sent the tackles-back to Yale two years ago, and Camp per fected and developed it to an even more brilliant degree than Williams succeeded in doing in Minnesota. Williams has been at work with his new modification of this play this fall, and succeeded in adapting it very suc cessfully to the code of 1910. The play was brought to Tale last month by Tom Shevlin, who has been helping at Minneapolis this fall. Shev lin was given full charge of the team the last week by Capt. Daly to perfect the play. It was taught accurately and pulled Yale out of many holes. It will be drilled more emphatically and with greater varieties this week and will be used against Harvard Saturday, with what Yale coaches believe will prove sensational effect. 2300 TO COMPETE IN PIN CONTESTS Plans for American Bowling Con gress at St. Louis Are Show ing Satisfactory Progress ST.

HOLLAND Rose Passes Buck After Confer ence with Williams-Jockey Club Head Opposed J. G. GRIFFIN Racing in Southern California for this winter is up to J. D. Hol land, president of the Los An geles Racing'association. George Rose, one of Holland's fellow di rectors on the board which con trols the course at Santa Anita, held a conference with Thomas H. Williams at Emeryville yes terday, and at its close passed the buck to the local chief. This will undoubtedly mean that racing will be resumed here some time before the winter of 191(M1 has dried itself out and become spring. Holland, in all his letters to John Brink and other racing magnates of the southland, put himself on record as favoring a meeting here at any cost, so if those epistles can be taken as tokens of sincerity the gates of Santa Anita will swing open ere many months and the crowds will once more pass through the turnstiles. The following Associated Press dis patch from the north explains part or yesterday's procee'lings with Williams and rather gives the ha-ha to a local so-called sporting writer whj pooh pooed the Idea of Rose having been in conference with his associates within the past week or two: SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 14.— George Rose, one of the stock holders of the Los Angeles Racing association, today conferred with President Thomas H. Williams of tho Pacific Jockey club regarding the advisability of holding a race meeting at Santa Anita for a short period after January 1. President J. L. Holland and other directors are in luvor of the prop osition and It was put up to Rose, who attended a meeting while en route here from New York. Rose Is somewhat opposed to the Idea, but while no formal application for dates was made he sought to learn the attitude of Williams. The head of the governing turf body on the coast told Rose he thought it would be very Inadvisable to hold a meeting for another year, at least. After the conference Rose said he would communicate with Presi dent Holland ana Inform him as to the attitude of Williams. Private advices to the writer shed additional light on the whole affair, and account for Williams' reasons for trying to discourage the local contin gent from holding a meeting this win ter. Adverse action by legislators from the southern end of the state if racing is resumed here Is the chief argument advanced by the one-time czar of Pa cific coast turf circles, and he Is ex pected to use this as a lever against Holland in trying to pry the president of the Los Angeles Racing association from his position. Williams' probable attitude In regard to a sanction by the Pacific Jockey club is Indicated in his present stand, says the writer's nothern adviser. However, until, President Holland ar rives from the east —which, by the way, will be but a matter of a few days— and applies for dates, nothing will be done. Williams diplomatically side stepped matters yesterday by stating he did not know what he and his as sociates on the board of stewards of the Pacific Jockey club would do until a formal application had been made, so Mr. Holland is the keystone to the whole affair. Let's hope he Is as strong as his letters would Indicate, and will insist on clean racing here—a thing to which even the most straight laced member of the next legislature could not object.

Call F3S9B YACHTING TENNIS OOLP LOOK TO WHITE TO WIN BATTLE Chicago Boy Who Will Oppose Webster Shows Nice Form in Training Stunts at Doyle's If training camp reports and gossip are to be believed, one Daniel Webster is in for a little trimming when he hooks up with a young person by the name of White one week from Thurs day. AccordiriK to the dope dealt out by those who attended yesterday after noon's training session at Jack Doyle's place. White Is fully acclimated and will do several things to our local ban tam. The Windy City boy's work yester day consisted In slamming the bag, a long spin on the road and then some action with the gloves. Hobo Dough erty and Frankio Sullivan were the goats at this latter pastime, and each waa sent through his pacoa for tnreu acts of almost roal milling. White Is showing nice form all the way through ami figures like a winner over the Sev enth Btreet chophouse magnate. At that Danny Isn't in the least dis couraged, judging by his performance at the East Side club. The local slug ger went a duo of rounds with Jeff O'Connel and then tore off a couple more with Morrie Bloom. Fast -work characterized the whole show, and at the end of his day'a labor Webster de clared he was ready for anything tho Chicago visitor might pull. Young Kivers, who is due to provldo his share of the Thanksgiving enter tainment In a bout with Frankie Sulli van, will begin work tomorrow, using the old Naud Junction pavilion as a starting point. He is already in fairly good shape and will use the ring stuffi only to taper off on. The other pre lim kids also are getting along nicely. Louie Blot, the San Francisco fight promoter, is having a hard time get ting an opponent tor Mattered Nelson or Owen Muran, whichever wins the heat scheduled between them for lato this month. Tom Jones, he of Papko fame, finally came to the front and declared little Adelbert Wolgast could not light for some months, so Blot was forced to part with the championship end of his proposed card. This Jones p-iiy has always been a good manager— for a truck driver—and he's certainly showing his class In his handling of the champion. Two fights and two stage engagements in almost a year. Fine money maker, that gink. Packey McFarland and Antone La Grave is one of the cards spoken of by San Francisco promoters. Very neat for McFarland. La Grave, while a fairly good boxer and able to hold his own with once-on-a-tlmers like Nel son, Is hardly a match for the hard hitting stockyards product, -so tho northern sports are not in danger of seeing a real fight if they got together. If Montana Dan Sullivan can muster a bet of five hundred round ones ho can have a tight with Jim Flynn. James talked business in a most agree able manner when the subject of a fight between them was broached, and aside from the little side issue has nothing to say regarding cut of purse, number of rounds or other incidentals. Sullivan's manager has been commu nicated with, and It is possible he can see half a thousand dollars' worth of light in his charge.
