ATHLETIC BLACKLIST HAS WIDESPREAD EFFECT. sud-sequent or Southern Inter-Collegiate Association at Chapel Hill Meeting, to Consider Many Cases. The .Southern Inter-Collegiate Ath letic Association will hold its annual meeting on the 20th and 21st of this month at the University of North Carolina, at Chapel Hill. It promises to be one of the most interesting meet ings ever held by the association. Many matters of importance will be considered at the meeting;, not the least of which will be the determina tion of the status of the Georgia School of Technology, the University of the South, at. Sewanee; and the University of Nashville. All of these institutons stand suspended from the association at the present tme. The School of Technology was black listed last spring on the ground of hav ing violated the rules of the associa tion in playing several men on her baseball team, among them the crack pitcher and captain, Henley. One rule which it was alleged that the Techs had violated and for which: they were put on the blacklist is that requiring all the members of athletic teams of the association to matriculate within thir ty days of the opening of the session. The president of the association has ruled that the word session means the whole scholastic year, which the Techs maintain that their school year is divid ed into three sessions, and that any one entering school within thirty days of the opening of the spring session is entitled to take part in inter-collegiate athletic contests. Captain Henley was declared ineli gible on the charge of professionalism, it having been alleged that he had re ceived money for playing during the summer. . It is more than probable that the School of Technology will be rein stated at the coming meeting and will again become an important factor in southern intercollegiate athletics. All lovers of the sport desire such an end. It was particularly unfortunate that the "Tech was unable to get football games with colleges belonging to the S. I. A. A. during the past season, as she had one of the strongest teams m her history and Would have undoubted ly been among the leaders. Sewanee and the University of Nashville are both on the black list for the same reason, namely, playing a man on the football team after Tie had been declared ineligible on account of hav-ine nlayed during the previous year at another institution. The rule reads a follows: "No student who has been connected with an institution where he has participated in an intercollegiate contest and who has entered another institution, shall be allowed to represent the latter in a similar contest unless he has been a student there for the collegiate year." Sawanee was ruled off for playn LeMoyne, who had been ruled ineligi ble as violating the above rule at the protest of Professor Patterson, of the University of Georgia. The decision of the executive committee, of which Seibles, an old Sewanee player, is a member, was unanimous in its opinion that LeMoyne was not eligible, bewa nee claims that she did not receive of- is ntifinQfinn im il affpft Ml P.
