COLLEGE OFFICERS WOULD REFORMRUGBY Representatives of Thirteen Universities Meet in New York and Agree to Work for Preservation, Not Destruction of the Game. special to Tj Poat-Kitpateb. M:V YORK. Deo. Representatives .f IS universities and college?, called together by Chancellor McCracken of New York University, to consider the football situation, voted not to abolish the earn?, but to reform it. The resolution was passed, 15 to .s. a.nd those present stood as follow?: Jn favor of abolishing; the fame; jitevers. 1; Columbia, 2; Union. 2; Rochester. 1; New York University. 2. In favor of reforming the- game: WfS-levan. 2: Rutgers. 2. Haverford, 2; Sw.irthmor0, 2; Syracuse, 2; Rochester, 3; West Point. 2; Fordham, 2. President Res of Rochester and Chancellor McCracken were among those who voted to blot out the game. The two representatives from Lafoy- tr'.iv. Preside:-:: Wa rflelu .:id Prof. .iarsh. refused to vote. Neither Yale. Harvard. Princeton, Pennsylvania nor orncll was res-repented. C -1. Howse of Weft Point proved a strong defender of the game. He said it needed some modifications, but that the Wen Point authorities were heartily In favor of it. The ev. J. C. Hart of Fordhs.m said he did not desire to see the same abolished, but did want seme reforms. A rules committee to govern football was favored, to consist of representatives of the various institutions. Over 20"' invitations will be sent to the various universities and colleges to appoint delegates and have them meet for the first time in this city on Dec. 28. The Idea in the formulation of rules is to make the game less dane.-rous and make changes which will bring about e detection of foul or brutal nlay. 5H THE SPORTS MANS NICHE President Orthwein of the Horse Show Society deprecated tjc interference of friends to bring about a reconciliation between him and the recalcitrant Mr. Prat ton, urging their penectly lovely quarrel was a private affair.

The- Alumni Association, which has charge of athletics, Is at present endeavoring to secure monev enough to guarantee D lanev the saiarv of i25 per annum.

The alumni would not accent this nmnnsi- tion and Deianey's resignation, much to nis surprise, it is whispered, was accepted. Dowd was obtained from Holv Cross College and took charge of the football eleven. There were rumors of discontent expressed even before the Iowa game, but thy were as a calm before the storm com Dared to i lie tornado of iur; mat nurst forth on the hard worKing little Celt s head when the jowy aarne was lost Me was accused of not having the men 1:1 condition, of being responsibi ior iiieii iacK or tf-amwork. in short, it was insinuated tnat if he had not been in charge of tne team St. Louis would nave ri versed the score. Tommy Dowd. wnen informed of the srry. said; "l have heard inv work criticised, but am plenty big enough to stana ior i'. and do not intend to answer one word of the criticism that has been hurled at me. I never was a milksop apologist and do not intend to be one now. I have nothing to say, except that I know my work and will do ir." To the criticism of the coach that the St. Louis U. boys were not In rood condition Thanksgiving Day, one of Dwd's friends asked that the" coach's side of the question be presented. He claims that Dowd. used to the strenuous stunts of the Eastern teams, worked his men hard and long from the initiation of the practice. Some of the men would not stand for this labor and several of them 1,-ft the field during the practice and ran to the clubhouse and locked themselves in their lockers so Dowd could not get to them. Later. lackadaisical tactics were adopted in the evening for reporting, and Dowd would often have to wait from an hour to two hours with his hands in his pockets for some of his men to make an appears nee. He could not reprimand or discipline them, for there was no one to take their place. Then it is pointed out that tne easy schedule of the St. Louis U. boys taught j them that they were invincible and they did not work as earnestlv as they should, because the;- thought that Iowa, too. would be easy. The redeeming feature of the Thanksgiving Day game was the indomitable pluck of the St. Louis players when they did find they were beaten, and their pi tick v offense and desperate defr-nse when'ihey found that Sportsman's Park was their Waterloo." SHARPE ASKS A. A. U. TO AMEND RULES Famous Eeferee Complains That the Amateur Boxing Laws Are 'Vitally Weak. Hirry Sharpe, the well-known pugilistic authority, who has re:ereed most of the boxing bouts held in tins vicjuij for the past nve years and who om-cu.ied in that capacity at the Stadiu.i, during the Olympic championship box-,n,i- events, aesires to be tne author improvements in the bx:ng ru.e? the Amateur Athletic Union which hi. Ye lor me jast oi Air. sharpe said Saturday mornm. '.Now that the Police Board haw agreed with the officials of the M. A. C. that the directors of this organization are within their rights in ho!din bouts at their discretion, I believe that the time is feasible for the officials o tne A. A. U. to make some change in their boxing rules that will make th. sport better Ior all concerned. Tne rules at present in vogue are antiquat- : ed. For instance, under the A. A. I. rules; "What constitutes a clinch, and shall I a contestant be permitted to hit in the , clinches while breaking away, or shall i !-r,'Mk- he clean? I The usual interpretation of the rules at the nresent time have been that, a clinch occurs whenever either man is holding, and that neither must then strike until after the break, which must be clean. This upon the supposition! that these rules are intended to encour- j age and promote long range scientinc , boxinc and not infighting, as practiced under Marquis of Queensherry rules. Under the latter rules a boxer may continue to strike so long as his nan da , are free, notwithstanding the fact that ids opponent may be holding with both j hands. If mv interpretation of tne amateur i ruh-s is' correct then it necessarily to). ; lows that when a contestant leads and immediateiv clinches he will nov be. j given credit for the lead, i-ut will be . penalized for the clinching, for tue rea- son tnat nis act yiacrs iw at a disadvantage, because the latter is not permitted to strike during the clinch, and it would be. manifestly unfair to credit a man with points merely b-au?e be leads, however wildiy. tails to land and immediately falls into a clinch. . . .

Benny Yans-r. the Tipton tdasner. made his first metropolitan af-pearance in the ring last night at the Hudson River A. C. in a three-round bout with Tony Moran. an Italian boxer of some note. Althouen Yanger is a native of New York, he has never appeared here, having made his reputation In the West. Moran was tbe heavier of the two. but was not in it with Yanger in science and generalshis'. Moran resorted, it is claimed, to all kinds of unfair fighting and the bout was storped in the third round. Coonev Would Like to Get One More Wallop at the Italian. Coc-riey Kelly, the. gtreator boy who nas defeated Nick Santora- the Chicago bantamweight, now out with a defi lo Frank ie Neil, and who has drawn with Gus Bezenah. the Cincinnati boxer, is soliciting a match from Jimmy Walsh, Harrv Tennev or Neil.

WANI TO BET ON BIG Slim GAME Many Sportsmen Have Money to Bet on Contest Between Leaguers and All Stars. The socker game arranged for Sunday at Sportsman's Park between the repre sentatives of the St. Louis Foot bad Association and the All-Star team, which opposed the famous English Pilgrim team, is attracting more attention than any association event held in St. Louis since the historic battle between the Cycling Club and the St. Teresas, played in IStv; at South Side Park. Like that great game, this will be Tor the championship of the city. Sunday's match will be the first time since 1S98 that efforts to bring the rival aspirants for public favor together have succeeded. The betting on the game, owing to the abse-.ce of All-Star money, has receded from odds of 3 to 1 to 2 to 1. and the fo low ing gentlemen announced to the sporting editor of the Post-Dispatch Saturday moining that they have fTie loliowtng sums to wager on the eleven .- T . . c; T . . . . !

DEATHS INCURRED PURSUING SPORT "" i-t FootbaU Leads With 21 Fatalities, Baseball Sends 11 Persons to An-other World, While AutomobUing is Responsible For But Two Serious Occurences 6pac;al to the. Poat-Dispatcb. NEW YORK. Dec. 9. Death r. aped a rich harvest among men who play games during the year now coming to a close. As usual football leads, with 21 victims. Baseball is second, with 11 fatal strikeouts, and the running turns next with nine fatalities. Eoxing. supposed to be most brutal of all sports, reoorded only six deaths, wiich is only ono more than the total for the yeai previous. A noticeable fact in connection with the lists of deaths for the past season is that automohiling, which is generally regarded as a dangerous sp-.-rt, has but two fatalities to record for the wiole year. The names of young Frank Croker and his machinist are the only ones inscribed on the list. Three of the most notable men in the professional ranks, Oldficld, Kiser and Jay, met with serious accidents. Of -course this is not meant to include private citizens riding in autos or run over by them. Baseball thia year was rather a ple-ant pastime .-ompared with the previous year, when i'l amateur and eeroi-profvssiomj players met death on th held, only n were killed tlus vear. Even the sports that seem the safest, claimed victims in lfi. One man was Kiliert w hilc playing golf, another loer his lite at polo, and another wa kill1 while wrestling. Two youths met thrir deaths while practicing In gvmnasiums. 1 here were three weil-known Jockevo killed whi.e performing at varlouo tracks, namely, Wonderlv, wenrlck axd McCafferty. The majority of football plavers and boxers killed were untrained, unltnown athletes. To the casual observer it is plainly Hp-parent, first, that football if a mof. dangerous sport; second, automobiUn is not as death dealing as many up-pose; third, baseball recorded more-deatus than foottiall in 1904, and six Ies than football during the present year, and lastly, that boxing seldom kill and, rarely ever cripples men who are adept scholars In the "manly art of self-defense.

As loi.g as boxing is conducted unoti "on the level" there is. a good chance th -it it will become a fixture in this citv. Men who know say that if there is tvjuare dealing it is likely that longer bouts will soon be permitted and these men are taking precautions to prevent "faking." "ringing" and throwing bouts. Such actions as that were largely responsible for the prohibition of prize fighting here and they are determined that the new boom shall not be nipped in the bud. Mowka for Cedar Rapids. Jo? J.

Fred Doerr. the local 13S-poun wrestler who holds the distinctions with Mike Christ of .engaging Jn the Ions wrestling bout ever held in this vt" ity, is out with a challenge to The K. Cross, the Westmorelandshire ler. who is in Sr.. Louis looking: 1 match. Cross issued his challe through the Post-Dispatch Thur and offers to meet any St. . wrcstlor at ca try, weights, any style." Doerr is one of the cleverest bova in the city and in l?-i3. in a match with Mike Christ, wrestled four hours and ten minutes before being thrown. After a short rest he came, back and threw his opponent twice in one hours and forty minutes. In an ir.-ten lew Saturday morning Doerr said: "I think that some other St. Louis wrestler should be given a. chance at Cross besides George Hap-tiste. liapttsle is always given the first chance at cvei-yone lhnt s'eps hia foot wituin the confines of the city. Bap-tisle is getting old an-1 lias had everything coming lot g enough; why not (tlv the young man a chance? Paptiste outweighs this man Lo pounds ami the bom would bo manifestly unfair. I am willing to inert Cross at Id.- own weight and will agree to wrestle him one bout at Cumberland style, one at c,atch-a--alcii-ean and the winner of the fall In the fastest time shall name the atyle for the third bout."
