YALE THINKS CASE CLOSED .And Rather Shies at Har vard's Request for Re ' instatement OF FIVE ATHLETES RECENTLY BARRED Kindly Feeling Has, How ever, Cemented Ties Between Them New Havtn, Cotvn., Oct. 28. Although Yale has received a formal request from Hutvard that Harry he Uore and Hilly Easton of tlio footbul! eleven Bnd Mil bum, Pumpelly and Rhet of the baseball nine be allowed to compete again in Vale athletics no such communication has been received from Princeton. It is doubtful, however, whether Yale would declare the five athletes eligible again, even with a request from the Mew Jersey institution. The opinion, is held bv tho Yale athletic committee that the athletes violated a rule that was clear ly defined, although tho circumstances were extenuating in nature, the athletes asserting that they placed .themselves in the hands of tlieir coach, Tommers. .and Captain Middlebrook in making the arrangement for their utay at Quogue, L. 1., and that they thought that they were safe from ineligibility invasion danger in leaving the details to the base ball officials. A member of the Yale eligibility com . inittee said yesterday: "Yale acted on the cases on their merits, on the evidence presented and will act on all such cases frankly, with the rules considered as they stand, not what thev snould or might be. If the rule is a bad one Princeton, Harvard and Yale must work out a better one, but wj purpose to live up to our own laws." Instead of a break between Prince ton, Harvard and Yale being made pos- ' Bible by the incident, the three have been drawn more closely together than ever before and a break been made impossi ble for years, if at all. The case of the live Yale men has been the first test of the new triangular athletic agreement for which Yale has been striving in years. Yale men believe that they have convinced Harvard and lrinceton of their sincerity in living up to the ath letic requirements and one of the most prominent athletic officials in Yalo said yesterday that Yale regarded Priceton athletics exceeded by ono in their free dom from ineligibility violations. With this mutual good understanding among the members the (air is cleared for taking up the Mrge' number of cases which will be considered before long of athletes from the three universities. The task of effecting a perfect under standing had been completed and the recommendation of the Yale Daily News that a triangular committee from the three universities be chosen is believed at Yale to lie a feature to be carried out in future football seasons. Eligibility committees of the three universities are (innovations of recent date. Formerly the -eligibility compli cations were settled by the athletic committees, but the wrangles which aroe are now regarded as hMorie and ! impossible of rcixtition. Certainly no Yale athlete will be retained in sport, who is regarded by Princeton and Har vard as iticliegible. The formation of the joint eligibility committee of the three universities is all that is now felt to be necessary to niske permanent the pood understanding which has mutually leen reached.

Always keep it on hand, Advt. derstanding that hns been forged by the Rig Three, is the action of Capt. Aleck Wilson, last sprinir. in inviting here Frank Glick and Ned Mahan, the Prince ton and Harvard captains, for confer ences on several . occasions. They dis cussed all sorts of questions connected with the coming football season. New Haven being geographically, a centre be tween Prineoton and Cambridge the con ferences were all held here. The re sult was the closest bond of sympathy that was ever interwoven into the foot ball teams from the three big universi ties for a single season. Nearly every executive detail which could be consid ered was discussed and adjusted and the sport was put on a firmer basis than ever before by the talks and vis its. Capt. Aleck Wilson summed up the visits and the talks, and also showed his own calibre as a sportsman when he said recently in talking to a friend of the visits of the Harvard and Princeton captainsi "Ned Mahan and Frank GlieK are my personal friends. I have known them both for years and I pride their friend ship highly. Why shouldn't we be close friends as football captains! Why shouldn't we talk over together the th in cm that we regard good for the snort? We may be able to avoid mis takes if we do so. WTe all love football and, if we can make it better, we want to. It's the greatest game that was ever invented and we all want to im prove it if possible. "When Ned Ma han and I or Frank Glick and I get on the field we are going to try our best to win by every fnir means we know, but when the game is over, I'm going to take the other captain by the arm say: 'Ned,' or 'Frank,' where's the party to-night?" WANT TRINITY PLAYER RULED OFF TEAM New York Universitly Takes Action Against George Brickley of Trinity Two Teams Soon Meet. New York, Oct. 2. Following the policy adopted by Williams last week, the New lork university athletic coun cil announced yesterday afternoon that a semi-professional protest has been sent to the I runty college faculty commit tee on athletics, suggesting the dis qualification of (Joorge Brickley, a play er on Trinity's team. The communication as a preface calls attention to the long existing custom of holding an annual football game be tween the two institutions on election day. As the next game on the schedule is with Trinity, New York, although not threatening any definite action for the violation of the intercollegiate rule which forbids the playing of a man who has received any remuneration for his "thl.-tir abilities, makes mention of the fact that the faculty at the Heights has enforced this rule strictly at all times and often has debarred men from competing in college spurts because they were ineligible aa a result of this regu lation. At the same time New York nnirersi ty clearly intimates that it is nut only the plsying of Brickley on Tuesday to whieh is an objection, but also Trinity' failure to comply with the rules laid down for the regulation of smatenr ath letic team. The note l" showed the unequal baxi Um which the game would lie played if profeasionala wen- al lowed on one team and not the other. It further requeats thst if any men on the team are ineligible according to the regulation of the Intercollegiate Ath letic aaaociation they be removed be fore Nov. t. The signatures annried to the pro teat were T. F. Jones, chair mas of the faeulty committer on atudent organ ica tiona. 'and Martin Wfcite, firat vice pres ident of the athletic association.

NO GENERAL STRIKE YET Until Government Agent In vestigates Transporta tion Conditions BOSTON IS ASSURED BY MAYOR CURLEY General Strike Would Affect 15,000 Men, It Is Believed Boston, Oct. 28. That the calling of a general transportation strike in Boston will be postponed until James A. Smyth, representing Secretary Wilson of the de partment of commerce and labor, has had a chance to make an inquiry, was an assurance made to Mayor Curlcy at a conference over the freight handlers strike in city hall yesterday. This pledge was made by officers of the Central I- bor union, who represented the freight handlers at the meeting. The Central Labor union has no power to call a gen eral strike, but it was said at the meet ing that no general walk out could be caused without its indorsement. Mr. Smyth arrived in Boston yester day to see what the government eould do to avert a traffic tie-up in the Boston district. He attended the city hall meet ing and his presence seemed to give the representatives of labor hope that the threatened transportation, which would affect more than 15,000 at the outset, would be averted. ' Although invited, none , of the three railroads sent envoys to the meeting. Letters, however, were received from all three by the mayor. The Boston & Maine and the Boston & Albany took the ground in their communications that there ''was nothing to arbitrate," and for that reason no good reason obtained, it was said, why they should be represent ed. The New Haven was more cordial. The letter from that road said that offi cers of the road were in attendance at meetings yesterday in New York and N'ew Haven, but promised that when President Elliott returned to the city he would call upon the mayor and explain verbally the position of that system. The Central Labor union was repre sented at the meeting by H. P. Jennings, president; John Mcl)onald, vice-presi dent; and John Senton of the executive board. Arthur Huddell, business agent of the Building Trades council of Bos ton, also was present, as was the mayor. At the close of the conference Mayor Curley issued a statement in which he declared "it is difficult to understand the attitude of the railroads in view of the extremely reasonable position taken by the employes." The official of the C. U U. told the mayor the contemplated transportation strike would involve .3,700 truck team sters, 9,000 other teamsters, including those employed by department stores, and a great number of stationary en gineers employed in power houses. The clerks of the Boston & Albany and the New Haven are affiliated with the A. F. of L. and trould probably strike. The clerks of the B. & M. are connected with the Knight of Labor and their action i regarded at problematical. Mr. Smyths investigation of condi tions began yesterday afternoon. On nis report will hang a great freight tie-up. NOSE CLOGGED FROM A COLD 0B CATARRH Apply Cream la NoatriLs To Open Lp Air Passage. Ah I What relief!

Submarine F-4 Dived to the Bottom Despite Frantic Efforts GRAPHIC DESCRIPTION OF THE TRAGEDY Is Furnished in Official Re port of the Findings by Inquiry Board Washington, D. C, Oct. 28. A graphic story of the battle for life waged In vain 800 feetbeneath tho surface of the sea bv the 21 men who perished in the navy's submarine F-4 Ust March at Honolulu is toM in the final report on the loss of the vessel submitted by a board of inquiry headed by Rear Admiral Bu sen and made public to-day. Examination of the wrecked hull after it had been brought to the surface and placed in drydock con vineed the board that the disaster was caused bv a leak resultinir from a cor roded ba'tterv lining, and the failure of the boat through poor diving qualities to respond promptly to the rudder cnange winch should have returned ner to me surface. Discarding the theory once advanced that chlorine gas brought quick relief in death to the crew, the board from signs within the rusted and battered hulk nieces out in its report a dramatic ac count of how the doomed men strove des neratelv to save themselves as their ves sel sank to the bottom." Fifteen met death in the engine room, where they sought refuge at the last; six died at their posts in the flooded forward com partmenfc. All members of the ship's company sre absolved from blame in this tribute; "From the facts established, we find that the accident resulting in disaster to the U. S. S. submarine F-4 on March 25, 1915. was not due to carelessness, negli gence or inefficiency on the part of the oflicera or men of the vessel and that, furthermore, the persoisnej remained at their respective stations until all effec tive means employed to avert the dis aster impending had failed and thereafter sought refuce." After a review of all the facts estab lished in the investigation, the board states, its conception of the disaster a follows: "The primary cause of the disaster waa the corroded condition of the lead lining of the battery tanjc and. in conse quence, of certain rivets in the port wall of the forward battery steel tank. "The si-condary cause were-- "A. The poor diving qualities of the vessel, and . ! - "D. The consequent failure of the ves sel promptly to respond to measures tak en to bring" her to the surface. "Unknown to the commanding officer, the vessel acquired some negative buoy, ancy forward of the center of gravity, through the leaky rivet in the port wall of the forward battery steel tank. "Water accumulated in the forward battery lead lined tank and, through cor roded slop tanks, overflowed into the bat tery cells in contact with suphiiric acid in the cells generating chlorine gas. "The vesael developed strong tend ency to dive. "I'pon these intimations of danger, ther followed: I'p rudder, but, due to the poor div ing qualities of the vessel, aggravated by the additional quantity of water taken in through the ort wall of the forward battery tank, Teasel did not respond, but, fact, continued to descend, and down ward momentum gained before profilers were stopped. "Automatic blow was tripped, and blow valve on auxiliary tsnk opened. "In the endeavor to check the down ward momentum nisnenrering with pro peller prolibly tok place. "Tha appreciable length of time requi ite for air to build up in ballast tanks for the expulsion of sufficient quntiti- of water reulti in vraael reaching crushing depth. "Seams of the ee began to open and probably through oen t'r-h tulie and aeam water entered the ves sel. A condition of poitie buoyancy was never attained. "There followed actual disaster.

If subma rines are to made more effective, naval experts believe they muat have a greater cruising radius and greater speed in traveling under water to escape more readily from their enemy on the sur face. Discussion among naval officers has developed that under-water speed and radius is the important tiling and not speed on the surface. This is be lieved to lie the lesson of the European war and the condition in the North sea, which hns enabled the British tp put an end for the present to the German sub marine activity. The British navy is now said to have sunk an im-umcrable host of small boats searching for sub marines that tho instant a German un-der-water craft shows itself the little boats "cover" the sea for miles around and the fate of the submarine is sealed. If the submarines developed a high speed under water they could rid themselves of this danger. For this reason, it is stated thst Con gress when it inserted provisions in the naval appropriations bill calling for high surface speed for submarines, was en tirely misled. It is even contended that the large seagoing nubmurint ctietiiif.1 iVKUklth miv not be one bit more elfec- tire the roast defense type, for the Teiim,n that while they will have a greater surface cruising radius their abil ity to escape under water will be no greater than that of the 6(KI-ton craft, cohting about $.11)0.000. It is contended that the coast defense type of about 5' tons is too small and that the German U-boat type, about WH) tons, i ideal and ha never been im proved upon in respect to si.e. What ever the )a-k of ability of the U-boat to escape from their pursuing enemie in the North sea, they have shown a good rruising radius.

Old Names for Battle Cruisers. Six battle cruisers are provided for in the present naval program and it ia sug gested that the following names be giv en them : flagship, the Bonhamme Richard, the Ranger, the Lexington, the Constitution, the Constellation and the Intrepid. The Bonhoinme Richard and the Ranger were the famous raiders of John Paul Jones. The Lexington was the flagship of Commodore Barcy, the father of the American navy, and was probably the first American warship to cause an enemy vessel to strike her colors. The Constitution and the Con stellation would commemorate , the achievements of the navy in the war of 1812, while the Intrepid would bring to mind the brave act of Decatur in the war with Tripoli.
