N0 smTBALL FOR COLLEGE MEN Professionalism Barred from College Baseball by Board of Directors. New York, Jan. 1. The privileges of amateur athletics were further re stricted when the National Collegiate association just before final adjourn ment adopted a resolution prohibiting colleges and universities allowing stu dents who have received money for playing any game from competing in intercollegiate games. The adoption of this rule followed a discussion of several hours by dele gates from all parts of the count ry ot the status of the college man who accepts pay for playing baseball in the summer. While all the speakers were unanimous in tne opinion mat j college sport suffered by reason of stu df-nts earning their living on the dia monds of organized baseball clubs dur ing the summer and also representing of tlle payers.

MOGULS SEEKING TRAINING CAMPS With the incoming of the new year, many of the managers of the major league clubs are beginning to worry over the training plans for next eea- i son. This worrying idea does not interest Rock island baseball fans greatly, but it is a matter of interest to see just which place the magnates wi;i send their athletes to to get into condition for the ' strenuous season that is in store for them next season. Seme of the managers have already laid their plans and win act accord ingly. The Athletics trained at Jack sonville, Florida, last season, and liked the country so well that arrange ments were made to. train there again next season. Everything is in readi- "W5 '" "' "u" oft the train at Jacksonville, advance agents of the troupe being in Jie southern clime already.

' which lias staged wrestling bouts at the Il linois theatre. Hock Island, for the past two winter seasons, is again dis playing signs of activity. It was an nounccd today that an effort is being made to book Dr. B. F. Roller, the physician athlete, for the main bout on the opening program which will be presented at the Illinois theatre in the near future. Negotiations with Roller are now nearing completion. The doctor an nounced a short time ago on the Pacific coast that he was planning to retire' from the wrestling game, be cause he claimed the port was not suffiiclently remuneratkye. Recently he returnea to cnicago, wnere ne is i making his headquarters, and the tri- i city club hopes to induce him to ap- 1 pear at the Illinois within the next two weeks. Roller has never been seen in ac tion in the tri-cities. He is recogniz ed as one of the bes. heavyweight grapp:ers in the business. He has al ways been accounted a gentleman in the mat game, and for several years has held among wrestling fans the same position that James J. Corbett occupied among prize-fighters when j he was in his prime. Roller was scheduled to be a member of the Jim Jeffrijs-Frauk Gotch All-Star troupe that visited Moline and Davenport previous to the Jeffries-Johnson cham pionship battle, but when the famous athletes put in an -appearance Roller was not a member of the party. " The Illinois Athletic, club announc ed that definite word was expected from Roller within a day or "two. If he agrees to accept the offer that has been made him to appear at the Il linois theatre, an effort will be made to secure a suitable opponent for him. The date of the show will depend on Roller's acceptance of terms. For some time past, wrestling pa trons have insisted that they wanteu to see some of th best heavyweight grapplers in action, and the. club is now trying to satisfy that demand. Roller is considered one of the lead- ers and a credit to his profession, and hi3 coming doubtlesg be , ! witn the rns II 1913 TURF RECORDS II (From statistics compiled by Daily Racing Form.)

Ban Johnson claims that he welcomes the arrival of a third league, but when it comes to counting up the gate money next year he may lose some of his present ardor. Professor Norberg. the celebrated swimmer, took a morning dip in the Mississippi river today at the Eigh-1 teenth street dock. This Is a yearly; habit of the professor's, but we didn't hear him say "The water is fine." And -now they claim that there is a baseball trust. What next? The "Teds" have taken a 99 year lease on property in Chicago to be used as a ball park. Looks as though the outlaw league expects to stick in the business. Walter Johnson has been making a name for himself in the south as an aviator. Nope, he's not the Walter you're thinking about; that one never goes up In the air, summer or winter. They refuse to allow basketball at the Rock Island Y. M. C. A. because it is too rough a game. But how about volley ball? WILL OSE MONEY TO FIGHT "FEDS" Ban Johnson Makes Statement Regarding Charges of Trust Against Majors. Money and not the courts will be used to fight the prospective Federal league eruption in baseball. So spoke B. B. Johnson, president of the Amer ican league, yesterday when asked what his organization would do to combat the threatened third leaguers. Johnson's reply was prompted by the fact that the Federal gents, accord ing to reports from Indianapolis the day previous, are planning to tussle with organized baseball, using the Sherman anti trust law as the big ar gument against the way the national pastime is now conducted. The American league head spoke only for his own league. While his course is outlined, he Is not aware of what action the National league may take. He refused to admit that the' two majors have pooled interests to fight the encroaching 'feds. Recent reports have indicated this, but ap parently the parent organization must do its own battling, and the fight promises to be a stern one for them so long as the newcomers promise to make the biggest rumpus in the Na tional circuit. ATHLETIC MANAGER SEES NU BASEBALL DISTRESS Philadelphia, Pa., Jan. 1. Connie Mack, manager of the world's champ ion Athletics, does not agree with Ban Johnson, president of the American league, who recently said the year 1914 would be the most disastrous for baseball. On the other hand. Mack, in a New Year's forecast last night, said it would be baseball's best sea son. "I'm not predicting any pennants at this time," said Mack, "but I feel con fident that the Athletics will be able to hold their own in 1914. But to con tinue as world's champions we must have our full strength in the field. If I have the same team on the rHarr,nH ! with each plaver putting up the high i article of baseball he showed in 1913. I I have every reason to believe we will continue as champions. "The fans w'.ll see better baseball the coming year, which I have every reason to believe will bo the game's most successful in every way." Stockholders Meeting.

LOOK FOR VICTORIES "Peanuts" Has Never Lost Scrapvin His Professional Career Sinnet a Fast Man. 4 Wire report fresh from the ring side will be received in Rock Is land today at the Clifford saloon 1)1 Eighteenth street, boxing head quarters for "Peanuts" Schieberl, concerning the local pug's Impor tant scrap in Milwaukee. Reports will also be received from ths scrap in Racine between "Young" Sinnet, another local boxer, and Jimmy Watts. "Peanuts" Clifford Schieberl., the i pride of Rock Island fight fans, is book ed for a 10-round mill this afternoon in Milwaukee, as a semi-windup to the im portant scrap of the day between Ad Wolgast and Jack Redmond. "Pea nuts" expects a victory over his op ponent, ,who is Manual Vereos, the young Mexican. "Peanuts" has been a professional boxer for a period of al-, most two years and has yet to lose his first fight. He is a fast man on his feet, delivers a good, steady punch, does not get excited, and always works hard for a knockout. The local pug has appeared In 41 important mit contests in the past cou ple of years and has 15 knockouts to his credit, with the popular decision In almost every fight. He has never been the loser. Commence at 3 O'clock. The fight this afternoon is being staged before" the Milwaukee Athletic club, and the Rock Island pugilist is the popular favorite. . The scrap com mences at 3 o'clock and wire reports will be received in the city by rounds.; , Schieberl fights In the featherweight; class, although he is slightly too bulky for this class. "Peanuts' is in good condition for the mill, with the possible exception of . a slightly injured ankle which was twisted in his Rock Island training quarters a week ago. At the time he was forced to discontinue active work for a couple of days, but just before leaving for Milwaukee pronounced himself in first class condition. He i was accompanied from here by his brother, Edward Schieberl, who is also his manager. "Peanuts" was born In Kewanee in 1S93 and is only 20 years of age, but 1 a 1 ma r ha i o y4ltt rrn f ivassl a a mm. j ing champion of his class. Every fight in which he engages Is somewhat more important than the last, and his many Rock Island friends and supporters are looking forward with expectancy to the time when he will commence to meet the real champs.
