Chicago. Dec. 7. Faculty represent

ence, at their annual meeting here
Saturday turned down the proposed
two-port rule; set dates for various
"big nine" events and Anally voted to
reward the combination in students of
athletic prow ss and scholastic ability.
The delegates set aside from the
conference treasury $2,000. the inter
est on which will be used to purchase
yearly nine medals, one of which will
be awarded by the faculty of each In
stitution to the senior having shown
the greatest profieh'ney In scholarship
and athletics. The faculty will be the
judge of the students' qualifications
for these medals, which probably will
become available In 1916.
The two-sport rule met an over
whelming defeat. Besides the argu
ment that the smaller schools would
suffer severely through its enactment.
the theory that many students fitting
themselves as athletic instructors
would be handicapped in acquiring all
around knowledge worked to its dis
advantage. The roll-call on the meas
ure was not announced. Xo suggestion
for a one-sport rule was made.
The managing committee of the
conference, an organization including
one alumnus of each of the schools,
was called in when the discussion over
dates took place. As a result the 1915
outdoor meet, the biggest event of the
year, was awarded to Illinois, and w ill
be held at Urbana on June 5; the swim
will be held at Northwestern on March
19; the Indoor track meet to North
western on March 20. and the tennis
meet to Chicago on May 27, 28 and
Illinois also bid for the indoor meet
but was content with the June event.
For the latter Chicago was found in a
receptive mood but the Illinola offer
was thought to uphold theories of
those delegates who believed the event
should be passed around.
There w ill be no game Sunday be
tween the Rock Island Independents
and Mollne Red Men, as stated Satur
day, because Manager Frank Lohr oi
the Indians went back on his word.
Assistant Manager Walter Flannigan
of the Independents, in company with
a Rock Island newspaper man as wit
ness, held a conference with Lohr Fri
day evening at Moline. Lohr stated
that the Indians would play the Inde
pendents Sunday, Dec. 13. but told
Flannigan to come back Saturday and
the terms would be arranged for the
Flannigan went back to Moline Sat
urday with the same newspaper man
as witness to close the deal. Coach
Art Towndrow of the Red Men was
present and "jimmed" the deal. He
demanded that the Red Men be given
60 per cent of the gate receipts, win
or lose, and at first insisted on 75 per
cent, win or lose. Flannigan told him
if he thought the Indians were the
faster he could not see why they made
such unreasonable demands and of
fered the plan of winner take 60 per
cent and loser 40. Towndrow laughed.
Flannigan then offered a plan for
the winner to take 75 per cent or even
90 per cent but to no avail. Then
Flannigan even offered him winner
take all of the teceipts. Still Town
drow demurred. Finally in despera
tion Flannigan offered him a 50-50
per cent basis, thereby giving away
10 per cent of the receipts. But Town
drow and Lohr said no game. Flannl- i
gan then went to the players and ask
ed them to schedule a game regardless
of the wishes of the management and
they in turn refused. The Red Men
are either afraid to play or else they
place the local team below par and
want the bid end of the money, wheth
er they w in or lose. All of the forego
ing story and conversation was heard
by the witness and can be proven.
In view of this fact the Rock Island
Independents claim the independent
tri-city and central Illinois champion
ship on comparative scores. Both the
locals and the Red Men won one
game. The Independents won the first
by , count of 13 to 0 and the Red
Men the second by a score of 9 to 0.
The Islanders won by a larger score
than the Red Men and as the Moliners
refuse to settle the argument, the
claim is rightly based.

A meeting of the officials of the
Mississippi Valley Power Boat asso
ciation was held yesterday afternoon
at Hotel Davenport, Davenport. The
purpose of the session was to place
the annual regatta on a profitable basis
and many important changes in it
were made. In several classes of en
tries the cubic displacement of cylin
ders was made different and the cash
prizes were altered so as to save the
association at least $1,000. The prizes
in the' A B C and D classes remain the
same. In the free-for-all contests the
cash prizes were put at $500 first, $150
second and $50 third.
The most important change made
was in the scoring of heats. Instead
of best two out of three as heretofore,
the winner will be determined on
points. The leader In the first heat
will be given five points, second, three
points and third, two points. It was
decided that the annual nild-wlnter
meeting be held in March at Hotel
Sherman in Chicago.

session yesterday Include the follow
