On the subject of the forward pass. Yost went on to say: I am glad the penalty begins nt the spot of the down ami not rrom where the ball was thrown, because It encourages the pass to be worked of tener. When the ball was carried back to the point from where it was thrown It discouraged the play, while the new ruling has the opposite ef fect. As for the other part of the rule which allows a man to be tackled as soon as he catches the ball. I think is exactly right. In the first place. It Is difficult for the player and the offi cials to tell how many steps a man has taken; In fact. It almost is Im possible to tell, and, furthermore, a player coming down on the receiver of a pass cannot stop and wait until the man has started." When asked If he did not think the committee should have eliminated the 20-yard zone as far as the forward pass was concerned, he said: "I don't think this rule has much effect one way or another. You, see, a pass Is rarely made longer than 20 yards past the scrimmage line." Madison, Wis., Feb. 10. That Insults offered and 111 treatment accorded Referee Charles K.

Interviews with members of the Wisconsin team do not bear out the story. Capt. Al Rlrch of the Wiscon sin team said. "That the Wisconsin team insulted Mr. Davics after the game and would not speak to him on the way home Is it deliberate falsehood. The best of feeling always had existed between Charlie Davics and the Wisconsin teams. Charlie came down on the train with us after the Minnesota game and in the time that we talked together before retiring I did not hear an unfavorable remark on his work as r..ferm ilnrlnir the came.
