ROCEESTEn DEMOCRAT AXD CHRONICLE. WEDNESDAY. NOVEMBER V 1922. 29 t MASSACHUSETTS . uS MAN WILL HEAD A. A. U. IN 1923 tVilliam C. Prout Is Elected President; Will Control Women's Athletics. New York. Not. 21 (By the Associated Prs. Ths election at William . Trout, of fte'on, national president, the derision to take direct control at II Vomen's athletics, ana tbe award ol tne Is 23 national putduor track and field l, championships to tbe Ulinoia A. C of B Ciilcago, were outstanding accompllsh-(i .ma m-dar at the cluaini session at tbe Amateur Atbletci Union convention. To-night delegates were leaving for SVashnigton where to-morrow representative of the A. A. V. will attend eeeting of the American 01)mpie Asso-riation. A eommifW of five, headed bj President Prout, also will confer at tbe cupitol with the Executive Council of the newlv-formed National Amateur Athletic Federation, in connection with the latter organization's invitation to the A. A. C. become a constituent member. The Invitation was received to-day by the A. A. I, from Uenry C. Breckinridge, president of the X. A. A. F., who uid be recobnued difference existed in the constitutions uf the two bodiea and desired a conference to seek a mutually satis factory ntreement. Take Important Step. That an issue with the N. A. A, F over phases of national athletic control might arise during the conference at Washington was recognized among A. A. V. delegates on the convention ltoor today. "We may gather in Washington for a love feast or a contest for the supremacy jf the A. A. U.," said Murray Hulbert, icting mayor of New York, and newly ilerted first vice-president of the A. A. a - Colonel A. J. 51111. of New York, pre-riotisly declared ' that there are reasons why the A. A. V. should not become constituent member of the N. A. A. , but slso excellent reasons why the A. A. I', should join in g movement to help in 11 athletic uplift work. I agree, be continued, "that some measure of cooperation between all national snort governing any athletic uplift organisations Is a good idea." The decision to take over control of women' athletics, regarded as one of the most important achievements of the convention, was made by the newly-elected board of governors, which met at the conclusion of the convention. It will have me ctrrct ui pulling leniunne niuietit'B HpVn the same footing as men in the organl-fl ation, eventually with appropriate rep resentation in its councils and give the A. A. I.', complete jurisdiction over their competitive activity. Already, it was pointed out, many women are registered with vtiried associations, notably in New England and in the South. ' Other Rules Made, The committee on wopien's athletics, on which Wiliam Haddock, of J'itta-litriih, is chairman, offered the resolution favoring direct control after Toting in fnvor of It by a close margin, five to four. Differences of opinion had arisen when the -subject was brought before the convention yesterday, one group favoring direct control while another group desired to place jurisdiction in the hands of separate women's federation or union, affiliated with the A. A. U. The text of the resolution follows: "It is moved that the A. A. U, control l open competition in athletic eventt Aiducted for girls and women In sports imw controlled and supervised by the A. V. and that a committee be ap pointeq to further and advance tbe same." The convention rejected a proposed amendment to the constitution providing for abolition of the individual registration fee of ".5 cents and discontinuance of the annual regulation requirement. Approval was given to another proposed amendment providing that organisations desiriilg athletes for competition must negotiate with the clubs with which the athlete is affiliated and not with the individual, as now authorized, The amendment also compels an athlete to secure a permit showing the dates and places where he will compete, such permit to be filed wtih the Registration Committee of the local district in which the competition is held. Admit New Records. Action en numerous changes to swimming rules was deferred while numerous changes in regulations governing wrest, ling, boxing and handball were adopted. The Board of Governors admitted to' membership the Ohio Association, comprising the entire state of Ohio and two counties In Kentucky. Heventy-Beven hew' records- women and thirty-eight by men in swimming were officially recognised by the convention which approved recommendations submitted by the record committee. . Uf the women's records twenty-seven were fn free style, eight in breast stroke, 'hree In relay races and one junior championship. Twenty ef the men's records were made by John Weismuller, of the -itinois Athletic Club, over distances ranging from 0 yards tq 5tkJ meters. The total of the men's records comprised nineteen free style, five back stroke, twelve relay races and two Junior championships.

Additional Sport on Page 13 Boxen who do everything nut box will have to mend their ways if Jamea J. Corbett, former heavyweight champion, succeeds in having his rules for the ring game adopted as the governing code fur this snort. Mr. Corbett, who is apar- ing in the headline act this week at ibe Temple, has been working for a long time on a set of rules which he hope will supplant the regulation attributed to the Marquis of Queenebury. There la an excellent chance that the man who wrested the heavyweight title from John L. Hullivan more than thirty years ago will have a chance ta put his new code to a test ia ?ew Xork Hate. It seems to be the consensus of opinion that (iovernor-elect Smith will make sweeping changes in the personnel of the Btute Athletic Commission gnu; mr. Crbett, according to advices from New York, ia being considered for the lsi. tion now bald by William Muldoon. Corbett, who haa been away from New York for some time, said yesterday ttat he. had not, heard lie is being considered for a place on the state boxing hoard. Corbett Would Accept Ofllc, "Would you accept a commissioner-ship?" Mr. Corbett wag asked. "Yes, because believe I would be able to do a great deal for the betterment of boxing," replied the former title holder, Mr. Corbett jndtcutcd that he la not seeking this office, but ha thinks that such a position would give blm a chance to Inaugurate the reforms be has in Plind. "Boxinj nowadays doesn't put much premium en cleverness or ring generalship," said "Gentleman" Jim. "In the old days, when fights went to a finish, a boxer needed a good all-round equipment of offense and defense to get anywhere, If he lacked footwork; ability to feint and skip In and out, he wasn't considered a top-notcher. How many af the pres. ent-day champions can show much, beyond a punch. ''I don't mean that ability to aock is not necessary. Far from it. but a real champion, besides being able to slug, ought to have more of a defense than taking tb'tn on the chin." Corbett bas scant sympathy for fighters who cover up or retire "in their shells" in- the early rounds ef a bout. "When I was kid in Pan Francisco," be said, "such tactics were considered a murk of cowardice. The rules which I hope lo have udupted provide that points shall b taken from the score of a man who persists in covering up while he 1h still fresh. The man who atepa in and punches and then gets away is tbe fellow who ig entitled to credit in a boxing match Deliberate holding would be a foul under the new rules and if a man persisted In holding after being warned he would bo disqualified." Mr. Corbett thinks the weighla for various elassea sho-jld be revised and be alio believes that boxers should not fee permitted to step out of the class in which they belong. Bouta between men of different classes are not a good thing for the game, in the opinion of the former champion. In Many Long Battles. Time has dealt lightly with Curbett, who Is 5ti years old. Me is as straight and dapper as when he gave up a job in a Ban Francisco bank to become a lro-feasional boxer. Corbett weighed ITS nounds when he defeated Sullivan for tie heavyweight crown and be tipa the scales at the same figure to-day. Lorbett p annearance is a tribute to bis boxing skill. There isn't a trac of a cauliflower ear, an embellishment few boxera of the modern school could have tacaped It undertaking a program such as that followed by Curbett. Before he defoated the great John L., Corbett bad battled sixty-one rounds to a draw with Petrr Jackson, that gallant West Indian black man. Uouts with Bob Fitzsimmons, to whom he lost the title at Carson City in 180T; Charlie Mitchell and Jim Jeffries litft Corbett unscarred. Imagine, if you can, Jack Dempsey, Carpentier pr Mill Mreunan following uch a route and finishing with a full complement of eyes ud ar. Corbett Uiinks Jack McAullff", young heavyweight whose home (s In Petrolt, will make all the big fellows step within tin next year or two. According to Corbett, the ltetroit boxer needs only a little more experience before taking on the first flight of heavyweights.

Hobart is not scheduled for another game before the llocbester conBict, se Coach Welch U directing every effort to get his men In shape for the classic event of the football season in Western Now York. The Rochester game has always been the big game uf the year for the two institutions and victory by either team, means a successful season, Last year Hobart defeated the Flower City tea, H to 0, and thia year they look for a repetition and a larger score. The game this pear l arousing evrn more Interets than last year'a contest when Hobart, by winning, carried of the sail college championship for New York state. The fans of the city as well as of Hobart College are interested In the game and the slogan ta "Beat Rochester." t is the intention of the athletic association to get out signs bearing the slogan "Beat Rochester" and place them in every business bouse In the city as well as In other consplcioua placet. As in years gone a great number of Geneva fans will accompany the team to Rochester. The entire student body will bi) there and practically all of the Gen eva followers of the team.'

Although none of the injuries are thought to be serious. Coach Welch ia not working th men as hard as the at hers. Palley, who was hanilled quite rough, has not reported for practice this week. VARSITY BEGINS TO MAKE READY FOR LAST GAME Pat Ryan Only Player Not Ready to Step Into Line-up This Week. New plays, conjured out of the fertile imagination of Auistaut Coach John P. abo, who poea.-e a bag-full of West-ernliicks, will occupy the attention or the University of Rochester football sqnad this week in its ptvpuration for the annual clash with Hobart on Thanksgiving Day. Although the plays vbich Rochester will use against Jloburt an not entirely new to members of tbe varsity squad, they have not been used in any of the varsity's games and therefore will be new to the followers of the Yellow and Blue. Coach George tiullivan will adhere strictly to bia plan of secret practice thia week and it is likely that spectators will be barred at Cnivriaity Field if a practice game is held on Saturday, Two or thre of the varsiry's new plays nav seen constructed with Johnny Sul- jivas as chirr cog in their execution. Yesterday afternono, in the first scrim mage of the week. Sullivan romped through the second team almost at will in bis old-tim form. His knee appears to be as strong as ever despite the fact that be ia wearing a heavy brace for protection. Cleven years of football, inrlud. ing his early xepcrience with the Midgets eleven, which he was chiefly responsible IB making tamuut among bigU school teams in Western New York, give Sullivan's background in football that would ha bard to duplicate among colege play ers, tne gams against Mobart on Thanks, giving, the last one of his college csreer, at llieiy to nnd tbe well-known "Johnny" in a-mood ta draw on his ability and large experience to the utmost. Seven Vetaran to I .cave. Several other varsity veterans will play their last football game for the varsity against Hobart. Dave Hummel, con- ceeded to be the greatest line-plunger that Rochester has ever turned out, and Can tain Gordon Wallace, a veteran of four years, whnse serious and steady playing, even in the practice games, has earned bun an tnviable reputtaion, are chief among the packtu'lfle me nwho will soon sing their swan song. Hummel. Wal lace and (tullivnn have for four years formed a mo of backs on the varsity team that has been depended upon more than any ether, and Coach Sullivan will nut replace them immediately after this season. Jack Dunn, Oscar Locser, "Punch'' Uppenheimer, Arthur loeser, are the olher four veterans who will' be seen in action on next Thursday for the last time on the varsity gridiron. Dun and Arthur Doeser have been Conch Sulli van s most valuable substitutes this sea son, Dunn in the backfield and Doeser on the line. Loeser is a veteran of four years, while Dunn did not break into tbe first squud until neur the end of last year. Oppenheiiner and Oscar Duesrr have played regularly in the varsity line this season and are consider two of the most valuable linemen on the squad. Oppenhelmer Returns. ' The varsity squad went through a rough scrimfnage without any Injuries yesterday afternon and is, in excellent condition. Pat Ryan is the only mem ber of the squad whom Coach Sullivan is afraid to scrimmage on account of his physician condition, and even Ryan, who was seriously Injured in the Buffalo game, is expected to be able to scrim mage beforer the week ia out. "Punch" Oppenheimer bas entirely recovered from n illness that kept him out of the con test against Niagara on Saturday and went through the entire scrimmage yesterday. The line-up that Coach Sullivan de rides to etart against Hobart will depend upon the kind o ottun.-ive the varsity mentor chooses to launch first. Roches ter has two sets of backfield men and it has bene Coach Sullivan's plan since the middle of the season to develop each principally for a different attack. This was illustrated in the Niagara game lust week, when ths varsity rode through the visitors for two touchdowns on straiglit football, and then switched to a open game with a change in itis backfield. Mercer Brugler, Al Makin, Ted Vlck and Harry McAnnally comprise two set of wing-men which Coach Sullivan has been using this season, and so fur aa ran be judged by the amount of playing each haa done this season, they stand about equal in Coach Sullivan's estimation. RafaJa Will Practice. Regal A. C. will practice to-night at West High Athlfttic Field at 7 o'clock. Tbe team will have an off duy en Sunday after a strenuous campaign so far this season.

THE average reader is no doubt somewhat familiar with the Rochester Gas and Electric Corporation's activities in selling gas, electricity, . cokt and Bengas, but he is probably not so familiar with the fact that the Company sells steam for industrial and heating purposes. About four teen years ago the Company started to sell steam for industrial and heating purposes on a small scale, and since that time this phase of the bust ness has grown until today there are over one hundred steam customers, requiring over six miles of steam piping and using about 650,000,003 pounds of steam yearly. These con turners principally include manu facturing plants and offices located In the vlcinitv of tha Comoanv 8 f three plants known as Stations H 9fl and 33 located at Mil! and Factory, Craves and y Aqueduct, and Litchfield ;iH7 Streets, respectively. The uses of Industrial steam are varjed and gen erally demand that it be furnished at comparatively high pressure. For this purpose steam is supplied, at either one hundred or one hundred and ninety pounds per square Inch, directly from the boilers, The most common applications are for-heating dry rooms, kilns and ovens and for heating water used for general purposes about the factories and of fices. It Is also used extensively in the manufacture of optical goods, photographic supplies, shoes, shoe polishes, paper and pasteboard boxes, leather tanning, candy and confections, food products, etc. The demand for this class of service is continuous throughout the year. The heating steam service is supplied only during the colder period of the year, from the latter part of September to the first of June. For this service steam Is used at low pressure, varying from approximately one to five pounds per square inch for the heating of factories, offices, ware houses and stores. A portion of the steam supplied for this service Is exhaust steam taken from the steam turbines used for electrical generation. The steam distribution system comprises over six miles of steam mains, ranging in size front one inch to sixteen inches in diameter, carried both on overhead supporting frames and underground in specially constructed subways. The steam pipes are care fully insulated to prevent loss of heat through radiation, as would be the case if the pipes were bare. The steam mains are also equipped with suitable drains, drips, expansion Joints, valves, etc. 4 ai in cuc wiui cas ana eiec- tricltv. steam is sold on t metered basis, the meters being installed on the consumer's premises. There are two types of meters known as condensation and steam flow meters, rtnoclvlv Tha Ms. densation meter does not measure the steam directly, Hmi; implies, II V. i rneaiurct the condensed attain. namely water, by its weight in pounds. This meter is generally used in heating systems and where all the steam used is returned in condensed form for metering. In cases where it is impossible to measure alt of the stea.n by means of the condensation meter, because a portion or all of it Is used in certain manufacturing processes, the steam flow meter is used. This meter is more complicated and measures the flow of the steam as it enters the consumer'! heating system. The Company maintains a staff of experts who consult with and advise the steam customers relative to their steam piping layout and the most economical method of using the steam. Steam service Is continuous twenty-four hours a day and is ready for, instant service through tha simplq turning of a valve. A. This is Advertisement No. 23 of our Friz Essay Content Series.
