Traction Crossing to be Improved
Commissioners Act.
County Commissioners Wiley and
Dynes yesterday afternoon by ap
pointment met President Winters
and Superintendent Morrill of the
Dayton & Western traction company
at the traction crossing near the
Ohio-Indiana state line where Elmer
Watt was killed on the evening of
November 5, and an agreement was
made that the road be widened and
other improvements made to make
the crossing less dangerous. The
county and the Dayton & Western
will share equally the expenses in
making these much needed improve
ments. The commissioners and the
traction officials also examined the
fence about the Driving Park and
the former recommended that all
fencing near the two entrances of
the traction line into the park be re
moved as they obscured the view of
the motormen. It is expected that
this recommendation will be acted on
at once. A gang of men will be put
to work on the improvements of the

Haskell and Carlisle to Be Regard
ed as Colleges in Point of
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
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

coach favored an extension to pro
