CLUB OWNERS WILL OPPOSE RULE CHANGES Major Magnates Are Content to Let Well Enough Alone for 1923. PITCHING CODE STICKS Efforts to Permit Return of "Chemical" Deliveries Due for Failure. BY GF.OIIGK CIIABWII K. New York, Feb. 3 Schedule meet. In6s for the major leagues are 10 days away. At these meetings it has been customary to hold the sessions of the rules committee, but as no one so far has asked rule chunges, the presumption is that the game, which was trood enough for 1322 is to be good enough for 1923. Possibly It la as well. The games In which the rules frequently change are not as popular as those In which freedom from change Is long-lived, although It noticeable that the younger American is more uneasy under rules than the young Englishman. Cannae Arc Opposed. The owners of some of the ball clubs have been asked If they would like to see the rules amended, but If they were not non-committal they were downright opposed to It. Their attention has been called to the advisability of permitting the two new eastern fields to start with a free area and no handicap of ground rules, and this has also given them the thoUKht that it may be best after all to bexin everything in 1923 without changs in tho rules. There will bo no fooling with the pitching regulations. The little movement, quietly started, to get rosin, soapstone and a few otber pewders into baseball again, will not get much further than It has gone. Two men quite prominent In baseball were In favor of It and each had an ax to grind. The moment that rosin and soapstone get a place again In baseball, emery powder and a few other ingredients will follow and in time the pitcher will follow, and in time the pitcher years ago when he made the ball the traveling agent for a chemist's shop, gome "Dope" Got In. It is reported that forbidden "dope" was used In the games played last year. In spite of the fact that opposing players are posing always as detectives and tha the umpires are constantly on the watch, It is almost certain that rosin got Intto the game and that soapstone pluyen a slight part in some of the pltchlmr. There Is no necessity of allowing me numner or dims or strikes to decrease or Increase batting. If the total number of balls were fewer than now it would surely be no less man tnree, ana if tne minimum get down to three there would bo fewer hits perhaps, but there would be more runners on tho bases sent there through no physical expert- ness oi tneir own. If the penalty was removed from hitting the batter with a pitched ball, you would , have a host of pitchers driving the batters back from the plate until the game would resemble tne Coney island amusement In which you get a cigar if you bean a Senegambian with a baseball. The soning argument for home runs or possible home runs came a near being reality as any rule change. It Isn't necessary to pass a new rule to bring that rule about If the change Is desired by only one league. It is an open question whether It is not possible for home clubs to establish j;ono rules if they desire to do so and to manufacture home runs to suit their personal convenience, but the consent of all the clubs of the league would have to be obtained to put it through. A Cool and Ills Money, Just a chance exists that the matter of paying high bonuses to college players for signing their names to contracts will come up. Off hand It seems as If that Is a matter which belongs to the individual club. If owners of baseball outllts have become such poor business men that they are willing to pay (5.000 to have an untried player sign his name to a contract, the matter of fact part of the world will quickly think of the old adage of a fool and his money soon parted. As a matter of fact this practice has grown to be positively abBurd and is simply another reason why the tariff to ball games goes up Instead of down. Curtailment of f rlljs could knock off half a million easily, but the frills are not likely to be narrowed as long as there Is something left over for dividends and frills, too. VARSITY ATHLETES TO GIVE PROGRAM Stage Exhibition in Birmingham Gym February 16.

WALTHERGETS GREAT CHANCE MONDAY NIGHT Good Performance Against Jack Perry Would Mean Much to Him. PITTSBURGH BOY STURDY Almost Took Britton's Title on Knockout in Toledo Two Years Ago. BY HARRY BULLION. TWO-FISTED, thick-skinned Jack Perry, Piltsburgh'i favorite fistic son, will demonstrate hi hitting ability and generalship for the edification of the Elk and their fricndi, in combat with At Walthrri in the auditorium on Cass avenue Monday night. In Perry the ringsiders will sea a sturdy puncher who came within a single second of winning the world's welterweight championship, just one more fall of the referee's hand, when Jack Britton, then monarch of the welters, ran afout a punch on the chin from Perry in a battle at Toledo two years ago. Head aswlm, Britton struggled- to his knees and, falling Into a clinch, hung on llks poison until the bell came to his rescue. Forever thereafter Britton steered a path clear of the Plttsburgn boy who cams so close to relieving him of his title In a limited, no-dnclsiun engage, mont Peuskt AH Best. During his csreer Perry has an. countered the best welterweights in the world, Including Ted "Kid" Lewis, before he lost his championship to Britton. Nobody ever has stopped him. no referee evsr waa compelled to count the fatal 10 over him. Perry shows Jhs marks of his gruelling campaign of eight years, thl-'' lips, heavy eyebrows, battered nose and dented chin. But he is today as good as the pight he almost put the skids under Britton. In build Perry Is one of the finest specimens of th prise ring athlete basking In the calcium's glare. Powerfully constructed st the shoulders and with long sinewy arms, the Italian Is both clever and vicious in his assault. llaftle Will Settle This. What the nature of Walthers' success against Perry will be only the results of the clash Monday night can determine. It Is certain, though, that the Canton boy never faced a tougher proposition In his life than he Is asked to on this occasion.
