THE BOSTON GLOBESATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 1915 SPORTS S a All That's Going On Outdoors and Indoors K H l SPORTS younger Noble & Greenough Boys Will Now Have Much jfjjj P0DT r-Tms- immmmm' 1 E, Ltl2l 1 WINTER SPORTS BUILDING FOR NOBLE & GREENOUGH SCHOOL. By ALBERT J. WOODLOCK. The work on the new Noble & Green-ouch Bcfcool Athletic Field at Long-Wr,oil been finished and the field will be reudy for use next Spring. The (K1 now lias approximately ihi acres of land for athletic sports. The large lirick dwell'" house on the ground has hsii made over with ample locker ac- ommodatlons, and rooms for afternoon ntudy and general meeting; purposes have been furnished. There Is. however, one feature of vital Importance which la now lucking. If the email boys are to make the most of the long. Winter season, a recreation building: suitable for Indoor baseball, basket ball, short running races, Jumping and other events must be furnished. 8uch a building, with dimensions of 35 feet by 75 feet, would also be available for the field events of the track team and for early baseball practice. The trustees of the school, feeling the Importance of such a building, have appointed as a committee to raise the necessary funds about $5000 Richard M. Saltonstall, Arthur Lyman, John C. Rice, John Richardson Jr, Clarence C. Little and ,K A. Sweetser. Announcement that such a "Winter Sports Building" was needed by Noble & Greenough was received this morning by the Alumni, parents of pupils and friends of the school, and it would not be surprising if the necessary amount is raised inside of a week. The trustees and the building committee, In fact, are of the opinion that the building will he started at once and be ready for occupancy before the close of the Winter season. The new N. & G. athletic field is one of the best private school playgrounds in Greater Boston and all of the pu pils will hereafter have a chance to Indulge in some form of athletics without waiting until the first teams play games or hold practice, as was necessary under the old conditions.

OUPHANT IN ONE OF HIS GREAT KICKS This eleven Is not only strong on defense, but It is also the greatest offensive machine ever known. It is a wonderful ground gainer, as the Germans at one time, using the above combination, carried the ball 1925 miles through the bleak steppes of Russia. The line is especially strong. It can be counted upon to open up any opposing formation, and If the line fails the backfteld is prettty likely to go on through anyway, especially the right halfback named. The right half selected is especially useful to gain the necessary ground when a short distance is needed on the fourth down. We have named no punter or drop kicker for this eleven, as a punter and a drop kicker are not needed. Why punt or drop kick when you can carry the ball over for a touchdown each time you start? WAITER CAMP TO DEFENSE Of COLLEGE ATHLETICS Walter ramp of Yale Jumped into the breech to defend college athletics at the 5tii annual meeting of the Association of Colleges and Preparatory Schools of the Middle States held in Philadelphia laat night. Speaking of the charges prliH ,illy made against sports conditions in colleges he said: ' "TheHe fharges are made about every no often, although nothing is said about the hankers and ministers who ofceat at IfOlf or the society woman who wins at hralci' l questionable methods.

Football's curtain really drops today for the season of 1916, and yet on Monday the Harvard inter-class series will he started. Frank P.

FOOTBALL OFFICIALS TALK OVER THE RULES NEW YORK, Nov 27 A dozen or more officials, men who have officiated at Important games this year, met at the Brown Club last night and discussed matters suggested by the Fall's playing The mi eting was Informal, as the officials have no authority regarding the playing rules, but points which they think need clarifying, as brought out by observations of the season, will be presented to the rules committee for consideration. William Langford, David Fultz, Fred Murphy, W. Okeson, William Morice, Carl Marshall, Mike Thompson, John Ilallahan. Fred Bcrgin, Fred Burleigh, Thomas Thorp, Nathan Tufts and other expert handlers of ames were invited to attend the ses-(ion and cut in on the flow of gridiron wisdom. Undoubtedly Prof Arthur W. Good-speed, the eminent scientist, who is chairman of the athletic committee or the Cniversity of Pennsylvania, is in the main right, when lie puts upon base euphemism, "Search me!" as a fact tin v did nothing of the sort. "Has no club in the united Kingdom since the suspension of Bradley. Bacon, Crossland, Downer, Watkins and Blair (temporary In the case of the last-named) held out Inducements to American runners to run at their games? Good heavens, the Amerioans have done famously out of their visits. The scale of "hospitality" on which some of them have been treated would make Kiviat's teeth water. "It was an easy matter o defray the expenses of a European trip." BASKET-BALL RULES MADE CLEAR BY JOINT COMMITTEE NEW YORK, i7ov 27 The recently combined Amateur Athletic Union, Intercollegiate and Young Men's Christian Association basket-ball rules committees held their first joint rules interpretation meeting in this city last night and explained for the enlightenment of coaches, officials and players the changes that have been effected in the playing code for the cominig basket-ball year. Although the rules of the three controlling bodies have been thrown together in order to get a uniform set of regulations, the result Is not so confusing as might at first be Imagined. This fact was made evident by the shortness of time required to explain the code. Where the Intercollegiate body used up a whole afternoon in other years, the combined committees, with Dr J. Sr. Koycrort in tne cnair. Intercollegiate boay, a su cculd least afford to drop it. Summer baseball, where allowed, gives a special privilege, which is denied to athletes in any other branch of sport. It will give some idea of the magnitude of the interest in bowling in Chicago to learn that today the Chicago Bowling Association starts a five-man team tournament with 330 teams entered. And this is only one tournament on one set of alleys. BALL PLAYERS' SALARIES $7,300,000. HE FIGURES A tat!stlcal person has just arrived at the conclusion that the baseball players received $7,300,000 in salaries last season, iutrt that It cost nearly $2,000,000 more to Provide sleeping accommodations, railroad fares and other expenses incidental to the season's playing.

This rule will govern on all jump balls. The confusion in the rule resulted from the use of the word catch instead of touch. It was suggested in connection with this rule that a 10-foot zone be established inside of which players save the centers may come in on a jump ball. As to the' requirement taken from the college rules that the centers must have their hands behind and1 In contact with their backs when jumping the Amateur British I Athletic X'nion officials needed much en-i lightenment. It was ruled, too, that fac ing the basket means facing with the entire body and not merely looking at the basket. Another college rule novel to the Amateur AthleWc Union players was that permitting shooting for the goal after a dribble. Heretofore in Amateur Athletic Cnlon games the player after a dribble had to pass the ball and was not permitted to take a shot at the goal. The Amateur Athletic Union regulation for deciding a tie game is now overruled by the college rule whereby an extra period is played off, rather than letting the play go on until one side has scored. In order to prevent coaching there must be no talking between players and persons on the side lines. In plays on the side line several interpretations were made. On thrown-up balls the players are to be two or three feet In from the side line. If a ball is Lieut W. H. Hcott of the Black Watoh, who was before the war sporting editor of the Montreal .Star, has gene back to the front in France for the third time. He has twice been wounded. J. K.

He says: I do not believe there have been many club gatherings outside of London where troops of cracks have appeared during the last couple of decades, but at which runners or cyclists have had such a point stretched in their favor as the laws would not permit were they rigorously applied. It is no use, therefore, to point any ringer of scorn towards Kiviat and Smith and to say: "What have we urged all along regarding the position of those so-caled American amateurs?" What about our own so-caled ama THE STAR. This eleven also. has the greatest quarterback ever known. He has never yet missed a tackle. No one has ever gotten by him for a gain. The greatest and hardest runners in the world are sure to be thrown for a loss once he slips within reach. He throws them all the high and low, the lean and fat, the short and tall, the poor and rich, the big and small, the mean and good, the stars and the dubs. Sometimes he works swiftly and at other times he loafs on the Job, but he always gets there at the finish. There is no great amount of courage or brains In the make-up of this eleven, but it needs neither. It has enough power and speed to do the work in a purely machine-like sort of way. It has what is sometimes known as the punoh or the wallop. This great eleven we have picked plays In no games where there are any prescribed rules of conduct. The other team can be composed exclusively of Summer ballplayers and can do all the slugging, kicking and gouging it cares to. Our chosen eleven makes no complaint to the referee. But in return it leaves anywhere from 10,000 to 200,000 dead on the field. WHAT, INDEED? You will read where this or that expert picks this or that star for his all-star line-up. But what chance would all of those who will be picked have against any one we have named? What chance would Haughton's shift plays have against that line? What chance would Mahan have circling those two ends? What chance would Spears or Oilman or Buck have checking the rush of that backfleld? DUFfY LEWIS GOT HIS NRST REAL BASEBALL JOB AT AGE OE SEVEN man throwing the ball Is to have a free space of at least three feet in front of him. The Amateur Athletic Union rule forbidding guarding the man with the ball from behind was incorporated into the new code and interpreted to mean that the man with the ball can be guarded only from in front. . s Ml. jiSkSse ' GEORGE "DUFFY" LEWIS.

Mrs Lewis smiled as she looked at the picture of "Duffy" in the suit he wore as mascot of the Alameda team when only 7 years of age. "Georgie was very proud of that uniform, with the name 'Alameda' on the chest," Mrs Lewis said. "He never missed a game in which the Alamedas played, and I think he learned much about baseball while a mascot of Bill Gunn's team." When he was 8 years old, Duffy was leading the Mastlck School baseball team to victorv over the other lightweight teams of this city. He was captain and pitcher of the team, and he knew enough organized baseball to pitch a better game than most of his opponents. It was not until he went to. St Mary's College in Oakland that Duffy began to field. He was one of the stars of the college team, and 5t Mary's is proud to count Duffy Lewis as one of its fromer students. Speaking of his success, Mrs Lewis savs: "Georgie was a born baseball plaver, and I never tried to keep him from plaving.

It is doubtful if any foreign war of- j flee follows with an accuracy greater than that displayed by the United States War Department the movements of Its officers. The following is an in- i teresting case in point: A young army officer who had seen ! service in this country and in the East M once with a small scouting part in Arizona. After two weeks in the desert his squad came to the railway j near a small station. Within 10 mis-' utes a telegram from Washington was brought to him by the station agent. It asked if tfie officer wished to be transferred to one of the new artillery regiments then forming. He answered by telegraph that he would be glad to enter either of them. Then with his squad lie set off again across the desert. It was six days later when they again struck the railway, this time 80 miles from the point at which they had previously crossed it, but the officers reply from the War Department was awaiting him. It had been telegraphed to every station within "00 miles. A more striking instance of accuracy occurred after the same officer's transfer to the East. He was traveling home on leave and, as the regulations require, had notified the department of the day, hour and probable route of this journey. After he had been on the train for eight hours at a small station the conductor entered with a telegram, asking if anv one of his name was on board. On opening the telegram the officer found that it ordered him to detached Exactness of detail could not be carried' much farther. The War Department knew the whereabout of id lieu, tenant even when he was traveling on leave of absence. Washington Star. 1 1 " ' f PL I && 1 I li.
