The other amendment to cut out the clause about the nominating committee and thus leave the naming of officers to the open meeting in dicates that there Is a demand In some quarters to prevent so far as possible the executive commute from perpetuating it self without more or less friction In , the way of an opposition ticket.

MISSOURI VALLEY CONFERENCE January Nine Date Selected for Kansas City Meeting, IOWA) CITY, la., Dec. l.-(Spclal.)-Th date selected for the next meeting- of the Missouri Valley conference committee la January 9 and the place In Kansas City, At that time th tangle concerning the data of the Missouri Valley meet will be settled and arrangements made for folding It on a date not conflicting with the Iowa state meet will be completed. The members of the association did not take kindly to the treatment accorded the colleges at Kansas City snd there Is con siderable agitation toward changing the meet to Dos Moines, Considerable discus sion haa also arisen among the schools rela tive to inviting a number of outside schools In this section of the country and thus make th event ona truly on a par with th Chicago conference meet. , The schools which would likely Join In such a competition meet, including both members of the conference and non mem bers ar: Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Washington, Drake, Ames, Washburn, Crelghton, Mornlngslde, Bellevue, Grlnnell, Cornell, Coe, St. Louis university and Ham line university. To compare the records made In the meets last spring of the Big Eight and the Missouri Valley, the showing made hy the new organisations does not suffer. In adding the stars from the smaller schools, which it is planned to Invite to take part in the meet, it is believed that the event would be practically on the same basts as the "Big Eight." As Iowa Is a member of th Chicago conference and would naturally side with the older organization It would undoubtedly send a team to Chicago If th two meets were held on the same day. One of the arguments used for such a meet Is that there is more Interest In track athletics In this section of the country than in tho territory covered by the Biff Right since the withdrawal of Michigan. Enthusiasts point to the figures showing 1,000 more attendance at the Iowa atate meet than at the conference meet In Chi cago. There too, Iowa schools captured six teen points and other Missouri Valley teams not entored were superior to the Hawkeye track teams. i ENGINES FOR RACING AUTOS Sis of Cylinders for Machines to Be Fixed. NEW YORK, Dec. 19. Inability to agree as to the method of engine measurement to be followed by cars entered In th Brlarcllff race next year. Is responsible for the failure of the automobile manufac turers' committee having the rac In charge to progress further in thedr pinna for the coming event. Several meetings of this committee, which is composed of a repre sentative of each make of car which took part in Inst year's race, have been held recently. It is probabl that tho limita tion will be put somewhere between five and five and a half inches. The difficulties connected with fixing such a bore limitation are the natural j quence of the efforts of the many manu facturers to develop their atock cara to the highest point of power and efficiency. In doing so many have enlarged the bor of their cylinder tint JI there ar stock cars io o nan wun oores as large ana larger than the limit fixed by th now interna tional rule, about five and one-eighth Inches. Other manufacturers still depend upon smaller bores In their stock produc tions. To anive at a limit which shall b satisfactory to everybody concerned is now taxing the wits of the committee. But, at any rate, it has. been established definitely that the race will be run. Where It will be held ha not yet been decided, however, and the commute la In what might be considered as a receptive mood on tbe subject of possible courses. Whatever inducements may be presented an In centive tor holding the race. It can be said. however, thst the event will not be run off far from this city. It seems doubtful now, however, If it will be held again this year at Briarcliffe. Th time will prob ably be about the middle of June.

Here wss a game, therefore, In which twenty. six hits were made and only four runs; also only three errors pretty nifty pitching ty Messrs. Turkey and Brown. Great nay for Whitewash. There was high quality of play on Au gust 23. " The Chlcagos twice shut out the Brooklyns by a score of I to 0. Clnclnnstl shut out Philadelphia 1 to 0, and Boston shut out St. Louis, 10 to 0. Both of the Chicago-Brooklyn encounters were error less; Boston played two games on the same day with only one mlsplay, and there were only two errors In the Clnctnnatl-Phlladel' phla melee. New York mad eleven hits, hut only on run, off Bucker on September 8, but shut Brooklyn out. The next day Pittsburg mode ten more runs and ten more hits than Cincinnati, the Pittsburg totals being 11 snd 17 and the Cincinnati! 1 and 7. Each side was guilty or two errors, so that only three rumerals figured In this otherwise diversified battle. There were nineteen runs and thirty hits in a game on September 18, In which New York trimmed Pittsburg. There were nine teen rum and thirty hits on the same day In the game In which Cincinnati beat Bos ton. The losers In each case made twelve hits to the winners' eighteen, end the re spective scores wers 12 to 7 and 13 to 1 April 14, the opening day In the American league, was'one of extremes. One extreme was represented hy the New York-Athletlo contest. It was a twelve-Inning Joust and waa captured by New York, 1 to 0. Th other extreme was the Chicago-Detroit con test, won by Chicago, 16 to t. There was a replica of these happenings on the 17th. St. Louis beat Chicago 1 to 0 and Cleveland beat Detroit 12 to . The New York-Washington game of April 21 was the wildest, weirdest scramble of the year. The High landers made sixteen hits, fourteen runs and seven errors; the Washlngtons made thirteen runs, ten hits and seven errors. PeenlUr Combinations. ' The Detroits and Clevelands each made three run and ten hits on April 26 and th game lasted ten Innings. There were more pitcher than errors In the Phlladelphla- 8t. Louis gam of May IS. Thre were two errors and seven pitchers: Vlekers, Bchllt ser, Maxwell, Dygert, Pelty, Dlneen snd Crlss. It wss a merry-go-round of twenty two hits and twenty-four runs. Although the Browns pelted the ball for fourteen hit to Clsvelsnd s nine on May 80 and didn't make an error, they were neaten s to 4. The New Yorks pounded the Boston pitching for fourteen hits on June 2 to eight for the Bostons, but lost. Washing ton laid against the leather for fourteen hits to the Brown's eight on June I, but the Browns finished with four runs to Washington's three, despite thexfact that the latter had the fewer errors. The Browns assembled the imposing total of nine er rors in their game with Boston on June 16. and Just to b in line the Boston gathered nine runs. Three teams New York. Chlcaa-o and Cleveland made eleven hits apiece on June 18, while three more St. Louis, Boston and Washington were busy for twelve hits apiece. June 21 found great minds running in mo same cnannel In error making. In the St Louis-New York game each side supplied three errors; In the Chicago-Bos ton game each made one; In the Detroit Washington game each, made two. There was a maximum of hitting and a minimum of scoring and error making In the gamo of June 25 between Boston and Washington, and It must have been a fine one to watch. Boston made two runs, fifteen hits, one error; Washington made one run, ten hits. two errors. Some Flarnres In On Game. Washington's totala on July 9 were t, S and 2, to Chicago' 6, 3 and 2. That was one Instance of th same figures, but with all th difference in the world In the way they were grouped. Th worst drubbing of the year was administered by the De troits to th Athletic on July 17. The score was 21 to 2. The Detrolto flsyed the Athletlo pitcher for twenty-seven safe drives. Sevens wer conspicous In the New York-Detroit fracas of July 18, but weren't lucky sevens for the New Yorks. They made on run, seven hits and seven errors; De troit mad seven runs, seven hits and no errors one run for every New York mls- piy. August 17 came to the front with two tie games and with six hits each by three of the contending clubs and seven by the fourth. August 28 was prominent because of four whitewashings. New York blanked the White Sox and the Detroit did likewise to. the Athletics. The Washlngtons did themselves proud by whitewashing the Clevelands twice. Four games were played between the New York and White Sox on August 2S and , and three of them were notabl for their closeness. New York won one, 1 to e, and Chicago won th two others, I to 1 and 1 to 0. In four games on September 18 the losing teams mad the scant total of three runs and ten hits, an average of two and a half hits each and lesa than one run each. In th three game of September 0 the three losing teams mad a total of two run and ten hits. The Whit Sox harvested twelve runs off eight hits sgalnst the New Yorks on September 28, and on the same day the Detroits could raise only a meager three runs from twelve hits made off Plank of th Athletics. NEW YORK'S GREAT AUTO SHOW Mad laen Sqaar Garden fa See a W'enerfl Display. NEW YORK. Dec. ll.-Slnce the big auto mobile shows began to be held In Madison Square Garden each successive year has witnessed a marked Improvement in the decorative scheme used for the occasion until, during the last four years, th in terior of th famous old exposition hall has been made notably more magnificent for the exhibit ot motor ears than for any other event In the place. A praissworthy fact In connection with this dressing of the place is what the progress has been from the merely elaborat and ornat toward the chaste and elegant. At th forthcoming show, January 19-3, under th auspice of th Association of Licensed Automobile Manufacturers, the step In this direction wilt be mors marked than ever before. Ther will be magnifi cence and elaborateness, but ther win be lea profusion, more simplicity and more richness In the general scheme.

PRINCETON GYMNASTS WORKING Development Of Team Is Getting; Seri ous Consideration. PRINCETON, N. J.. Dec. 19. Serious consideration is "being given at Princeton university toward th development of a gymnastic team which will perform as creditably as the one last season, when the Tiger combination won the intercol legiate gymnastic meet after both Prince ton and Pennsylvania had been defeated in dual competition. Of the squad of last winter three men havo been lost through graduation, one of them being E. W. Mecabe, who was one of the best gymnasts who ever represented the . Orange and Black. Scott end Crawford are the other two men who are missing this season. Captain Dowd, a senior, is depended upon by the coaches this season to do the major hare of Princeton work in the coming In tercollegiate meet. Dowd won first place in the horizontal bars In four meets last season, was second In the parallel bars in the dual engagements with Yale and Pennsylvania and third in the intercol legiates, and In tumbling ho took second place against Yale and Pennsylvania, and waa third in the intercollegiate. In the latter meet he secured third place in the individual championship. The other men who are trying for the team are Pope, Ward, Coopor, Clark, Vezln, Dennlston, Felgenspan, King and Laughlln. Pope won the intercollegiate championship in the rings, and he also per forms on the parallel bars. Ward ia a ring man, securing first place In the Yale and New Ycrk university, and third In the Pennsylvania meets last year. Cooper ranked the last in club swinging against the Kits and the Quakers.

IMAGINATION FOE TO GOOD GOLF Fooale Pn Dae ta Mental Attltade of riayer. NEW YORK. Dec. 11 The game of golf consists cf two great parts, and one of these ia putting. It Is a curious fact that while there Is no reason on earth why all of us should not be able to acquit our selves well on the green, very few of us do. Putting looks so easy, and yet "how easily things go wrong." Imagination Is the worst foe cf good putting. The fear of what may happen causes the worst to take place. The un imaginative man sees no hidden dangers In the line of his putts. He fearlessly bangs the ball up to the hole and not Infrequently goes In. while others who crouch behind th ball and examine fearfully the diffi culties of slope and distance, send th ball In every direction but the right one. It ir unquestionably true that many player miss putts by allowing their Imagination too much freedom. Without doubt putting is the most im portant stroke In the gam of golf. When on stop to consider that a six-Inch putt counts for as much In the score or on the match aa a 160-yard drive, he realise th? receaslty for devoting 1.1s full power of concentration on each one of the ahorl shots that should place hi ball in the cup. Ther t no possible excuse for th bad putting of many golfer except imagina tion, overconfldence or lack of practice- Any real golfer of experience can hole a reasonable putt with a rleek. a rrdlron. a mash I, or even a driver or braaey. II kL w where to hit .the ball and can find a lln to th hot. Yt when b get tn a match and use hi pet putters h makes unaccountable mistake In the hollngsput process that make him Io confidence. Th next stag of th disease is to become green shy, when he cannot hole anything over two Inches long. Th best cur for weak putting Is to practice putting. JM DRISC0LL AND 0WNEY M0RAH Clever Yeans; F.nalUhaaen Will Meat la Hew York. NE5W YORK. Dec. 19. Jen Drtecoll, th legitimate featherweight champion of Eng land, and Owen Moran, th clever English bost. will t matched to meet la a twenty- TO round bout at the National Dporting club of London the latter part of next month for a purse of 17,600 and the featherweight championship of England. Matchmaker "Peggy" Bettlnson of th National Sporting club has notified both fighters that he will give them that purse to battl for, and as they know perfectly well that they can't get that sum to fight In this country they have decided to accept it. GOOD CATCHERS ABE IN DEMAND Backstop Abont the Seareeat Thing; lat Baa Ball Today. NEW YORK, Deo. 19. About the scarcest thing in base ball circles these days are promising young catchers. Men who can make good in fast company are few and far between, though the minor league crop of backstop gathered In by the big league cluba this fall look better than for several years past. But the question is, csn they make good In the big league next season? Clark Griffith, In talking on this matter, said: "I thought I had landed, a prise a couple ot years ago when I landed a cer tain catcher. I had watched hl's work In the minor league for two years and It looked as if he was the roods. I finally got a chance to gat thla fellow In a trade and I grabbed him. I no sooner had him on the club than I discovered that, barring; an ability to catch and throw as well ss hit a little, he did not know anything, ila really don't know how to sign a pitcher to throw a curv ball. Yet he was a minor league star." It la a strange thing that demand for, players seem to run In circles. Several years ago third basemen were the scarcest thing on the market.
