New York, Dec. 30.—Are the
present football rule.; satisfactory?
That is one of the important ques
tions that will be discussed at the
annual meeting of the intercollegiate
Athletic Association which will be
held in this city tomorrow.
The widespread agitation, at the
close of thp 10<>r» season over the
terrible toll of the gridiron had the
effect of a drastic change in the mis
governing the game. Rules against
mass plays were made and arMtraily
enforced in an effort to make the
game less dangerous.
The results, however, have heen
far more satisfactory. When the
season closed in November and the
football statistics were compile!, it
was found that twenty-ono young
men had mot their death as a result
of the gridiron craze, while the list
of injured reached the unprecedented
number of 491.
This shows a decrease from 1909,
which the list of injured was double
that of the previous year.
Many College Men Killed.
The number of deaths among col
lege men has been particularly largo
this year, in spite of the assertion
that men who are properly coached
and trained are not in great peril.
I Despite this grim toll it is deubt
! ful if the committee in charge of this
! section will make any radical revis
ion of the rules. They cannot make
many more changes, and still retain
the exciting features of the game.
It seems to be the consensus of

opinion among the members of the
committee that many of the accidents
were due to infractions of the rul«ys.
There have been many charges
that the new code was not being en
forced by the officials selected and
that the students fail to adhere
strictly to the letter of the present
rules. These charges will form the
subject of an exhaustive investiga
At the coming meeting a question
slip will be issued to members. The
sheet contains three questions per
taining to football and two to base
ball. They are:
1. Are the present football rules
satisfactory, except for minor
2. Should coaching be. limited to
members of the faculty, undergrad
uates and alumni?
3. Were the rules of play saUs
factorily enforced this season?
No Change in Rules Probable.
Should the members be of the
opinion that the rules need revision
"a football rules committee will
appointed to investigate and m\
the necessary changes, but shot,
they agree, as it is said they wf\
that the present rules provide ade\
quate protection for participants" in'
the game, no change will be made.
The baseball situation, however,
will be the subject of suggestions
made by a committee which has been
investigating the question in con
junction with the Athletic, Research
society and there seems a strong
probability that action will be taken
to remedy the delinquency implied
in the first baseball question:
"Are amateur laws applied to in
tercollegiate baseball in your local
The other query. "What is your
solution of the summer baseball
question?" will be the subject of de
bate and possible action on the part
of the association.
Alonzo A. Siagg is chairman of a
committee which is considering track
athWirs. their proper control, uni
form rules for participants, methods
of preserving records, etc., which
will make a report.
The important proposition will be
a possible change in the constitution,
so as to give representation on the
executive committee of local leagues,
such as that of the New England
states, the Western Pennsylvania and
West Virginia league, the Ohio Val
ley, the Southern Intercollegiate, the
Missouri Valley Conference, and the
Chicago association. It is thought
that a change of this nature will fos
ter a great working interest in the
affairs of the national organization.
