DANGEROUS Traction Crossing to be Improved Commissioners Act.

"BIG NINE" MAKE RULES SEVERAL CHANGES IN FOOT BALL RULES ADOPTED THE TWO INDIAN SCHOOLS Haskell and Carlisle to Be Regard ed as Colleges in Point of Eligibility. Representatives of the "Big Nine" universities of the West met Friday and adopted several radical changes in football rules. According to the "freshman rule" first year college men must be bona fide students for at least four and a half months before they are allow ed to represent their institutions. The reading of the rule is as follows: "No student shall participate in any intercollegiate contest who shall not have been in residence a semes ter and a full credit for a semester's work previous to the term or semes ter in which the sport is held." As the majority of "preps" enter college in the fall, the rule hits foot ball players worse than either base ball or track athletes. The confer ence representatives believe that it would be unnecessary to extend the period through the spring, as they declare that a freshman would not be likely to remain in college until spring unless he was an earnest stu dent. , However, it is probable that many football - men will eoterusehooL in, the spring, where there are summer courses, as at the University of Chi cago, and thus be eligible in the fall. All future "lifting" of high school athletes by college officials will die out as a result of the ruling, according to the belief of members of the committee. Proselyting among Western colleges started the agita tion, and the cases of Eckersall, of Chicago, and Tom Hammond, of Michigan, both of whom entered col lege before graduation from high school, were cited as examples of the evil. The "freshman rule" will have bad effects almost universally on the Western colloges next year, from the standpoint of football material. Wisconsin will suffer least of the "big nine," as all the cardinal play ers will be back. Coach Stagg, of Chicago,. proposed the rule which bars graduates from j competing at a school other than their alma mater the year after' re ceiving their diplomas. The maroon coach favored an extension to pro continued on fourth -page.) DIES 0F INJURIES Young Kentuckian Attending Michi gan Agricultural College Victim. Lansing, Mich., Nov. 1 25.
