RN FOOTBALL NATIONAL RULES COMMITTEE HAS FEW CHANGES TO OFFER THIS YEAR WESTE TOGET PENALTY IN FORWARD PASS GIVES DEFENSE BETTER CHANGE WITH BALL HIHHESOTA, CHICAGO, BICHIGAH AE1D WISCONSIN FORM THE NEW SCHEDULE Time of Game Again Lengthened to Thirty-five Minutes to Do Away With Tie Scores Two Umpires Will Be Obligatory the Coming Season. Gophers Booked to Meet Wisconsin and Chicago in 1907, While Michigan Agrees to Play Chicago Minnesota Plays Wolverines in 1908 Dr. Williams and Stagg Responsible for Plan. MINNESOTA TO MEET FAST ILLINOIS TEAM SAME TO OCCUR IN ARMORY ON THURSDAY EVENING.

Muir Will Probably Play Forward in Place of McRae. TEAM HAS GREATLY IMI'HOVED SINCE WISCONSIN GAME. Thursday evening, Jan. 31, will occur the second intercollegiate basketball gama of the season, whin Minnesota meets the speedy team from Illinois. The game will be.

played in the university armory and. a return game played at Champaign on March 1. Since its victory over the Wisconsin team Minnesota has put tu the time in constant practice and the team work has developed rapidly. Dr. Cooke has let no time go to waste and the men have put in every spare moment on the floor.

Owing to press of studies McRae has not been in the practice and will not return to the game until after the examinations this week. That will keep him out of the Illinois game. Muir will probably play In his position, with Deer-ing as the other forward. George L'zzell has recovered from his sprained wrist and Is again in the game. He Is making a strong bid for a piace at guard and may be used.

Captain Larson will, of course, hold down one guard position. Pidgeon is playing a brilliant gam and the choice between him and l'zzell will be a close one. At center Woodrich will be given the choice and will hold down the place in good style. Tho experience gained In the Wisconsin game will prove invaluable to the Gophers, and their work Thursday should show much improvement not only in team work, but in individual play and smoothness. Illinois will send a particularly strong and aggressive team and the Gophers are looking for one of the nardesl contests on the home floor.

HAWLEY MAY REMAIN FANS STILL CLAMOR FOR RETENTION OF FORMER MANAGER. Club Management Think Expenses Can Be Cut Down by Releasing Hawley Green Bay Said to Have Opened Negotiations for Him. LA CROSSE, Jan. 27. With the fans clamoring for the retention of Manager "Pink" Hawley, land the club management believing a playing-manuger would help the finances of the organization, La Crosse faces a baseball eruption, which may have some disastrous effect upon the lauding of the pennant another season.

Hi'wley, who won tho two pennants thus far awarded In the Wisconsin league, Is conceded by the management to be a wonder, but a raise of salary has been demanded by Hawioy, and It 1b thought by a portion of tho directors thai. Bubser, Jones, or possibly some other player, can take up the management of the team, playing In the game at the same time. Hawley, for the most part, directs the team from the bench, and seldom enters tho box, although he Is a first-class plleher. Fans declare Hawley should receive a cash toonu Instead of being handed a "lemon" after two successful Boaaons, and there Is even, talk In some quarters of boycotting next summer's games If the popular manager Is released. Green Bay has opened negotiations with Hawley and It la said will make every effort to secure him as manager of the Green Bay team, rcgardlens of expense.

The controversy will likely be decided before tho meeting of league directors, called for Milwaukee on Feb. 1. KENT AND MORTON ARE RULED OFF AT ASCOT JjCH ANOET.Efl. Jim. Zl.

Marshall resigned after fifty moves had been made Play began at 2:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon, adjournment being taken at 6 o'clock. Play was resumed at 8 o'clock and continued until nearly 11 clock.

When recess was taken for dinner 23 moves had been registered. At the ttmo the end game stago had been reached practically a majority of the experts who had looked on, gave tho advantage to the champion. Marshall, however, declared that at the worst, he could easily draw the game. The challenger opened with the Ruy Lopez. Six games will be played In this city when the match will be shifted to ther chief centers.

Marshall opened the game with tho famous Spanish attack, the Ruy Lopez, and the champion seemed to like the program cut out for him, for at no stage of tho game did he spend many on his rejoinders, whiio Marshall put In considerable time in studlyng his moves ASCENSION CLUBS WIN OUT IN BASKETBALL WITH C0M0S The Ascension Cu'bs' Basketball team defeated the Conios In a one-sided gumo on the former's floor, Friday night, by the score of 40 to 3.

C. Johnstone, president of tha Cambridge University Boat club, telegraphed to the Associated Press as follows yesterday relative to tho report from Boston that Cambridge contemplated sending an "eight" to America during the summer to row against Harvard: "I have hae" vo word from en American university challenging Catabrldgo to row, BIG FO be changed from Ions of the bail to a distance penalty of 15 yards. This change was made to enable the defense to ktep the ball from the possession of their opponents more easily. The altering of the length of the game was considered necessary on account of the frequency of nothing to nothing scores last year. With a few more minutes of play, Yale would have beaten Princeton and Pennsylvania might, have beaten Cornell.

The time of halves was increased from 30 to 35 minutes. Last year the use of two umpires In a game was optional, but this year it will be obligatory. One of these offici'tls will be known as the field umpire and the other as line umpire. Tho former will be given many of the duties of the referee but he will be stationed in the pari of the field where the defense is stationed, in order to get more accurate judgment on questions relating to catching kicks and forward passes. Tho line umpire will be stationed near tho lino day.

Erkersall Is charged with obtaining an overcoat by false pretenses and when the case wan called the football player failed to appear. "This is not a football affair," said the court when Eckersall sauntered into tho court two hours late. "When people are requested to be In court at a given time, It Is expected that they will obey the summons. I trust you will bear this in mind In the. future." Judge Maxwell then forfeited Ecker-sall's bond and revoked his action and tho matter was set for hearing Feb.

2. CURLERS HAVE BIG PLAY AT RINK THIS WEEK Things are booming these days out at the Minneapolis Curling club, 2:133 Pills-bury avenue, and local are revelling in their favorite sport. Almost every night close and exciting matches are being pulled off, and interest Is at top notch.

Rule IS wag changed so that on a kick out after a touch back or a safely, the opponents may not come within ten yards of the side having a free kick. A suggestion was made that, a field goal counted only three points Instead of four, but this was? voted down. "Hurry Up" Yost's football knowledge was proved when the committee passed a rule: "A lineman is allowed to carry the ball, provided he does not leave his position in the line until after the ball is put in play." Pennsylvania wanted to use this play In the Pennsylvania-Michigan game, but Yost, objected. He said it was not allowed under the rules, although tho committee had evidently Intended it to be. The rules of lft06 were not quite clear as to when a man should have an opportunity for a free catch, and it was vrted to allow a man to signal only when he has a chance to get the ball before it touches the ground.

Some teams bad Introduced a play so thai two men would signal, or one man would signal when he did not Intend to get the ball but to protect another man In reaching. All the rules as changed are to be codified and will be passed upon again by the full committee. There will be no more changes made, however, in the playing rules except in making the wording clear.

The now hill was given a try out yesterday afternoon and although the snow was sticky, having just been hauled upon the hill, and the trestlework was now, the runners made several Jumps exceeding 100 feet, so there are good ground for predictions of record breaking Jumps this afternoon. Provided tho weather Is good, the central location ol the hill ought to bring out several thousand, enthiiHiafitB to witness the sport.
