Mon.il rules are not Iho puiim III anv tv.o

basketball blR a sport as It may leeni now
The 1010 season was doubly pleasing to
1'hllndelphlaiiB. for the kmsoii that the I'nl
erslty of lVnn-..v Ivanla flvo won the Inter
.ollcglato championship after eight lean
vears and Grcystock won the l.astein
l.eaguo championship after ti ailing ror nt
seasons Until victories vveie iiulte une
pected, even though every one realized the
strength of the GreysloeU team.
PemisvlvanU had tho lightest team that
ever itpreaented u. college on the basketball
ourt, also tho cleverest It was a team
that plajed basketball from u scientific
standpoint. Tho Idea nf tho team was to
bo on the ball" Hy placing the ball they
lommitted fewer fouls than anv other team
In tho Intercollegiate League. Added to thin
I'eniisxlvaiila had on Its team the bent fotil
go.il tosher In the colleelata ranks In lie
V'lehol. He tossul on an aveinge of nine
goals In every twelve trials which Ik good
enough to alwnyo keep tho opposition
Jasper Tins Split Season Winner
To digress n llttlo from the 101R season
on tho whole, wo want to bring In t-oine-Ihing
about tho (list halt of tho 1910-1917
Kaslcrn League season, which concludes
this week. The championship lor the first
half will go to the .Inspcr Jewels. This is
Iho first time that the split season has been
tried in tho Eastern Leaguo. Jf the same
team wins out In both tho first and second
halves it Is tho champion, ana ir uiricrent
trams top tho standing of tho clubs In the
two session then they will fight it out
for the title.
Tho split season nlwavs keeps tho Inleiest
hi tho sport. Ve Nerl thus far has won but
ono In seventeen starts If this team went
through a forty-Rams schedule under this
handicap It would attract no one at home
or away because It would bo too far out of
the race to bo a factor. "With a split season
a team that got a poor start In the first half
has a chnnco to make good in the second
It was thought tv Grcystock would get
i away good this se. ion because tho cham
pionship team was Intact nut the Grejs
didn't get away fast nnd some of the other
teams were a llttlo stronger than Inst nca--.on
Jasper, with the addition of 'Hough,
discarded in Tienton ns a "has been," put
new life Into the Jewell nnd turned the
earn pennantward. Though crippled a
.ouplo of weeks ago and more than likely
out of tho game for the balance of the sea
son, tho vet ran of more than it thousand
basketball gorne.s smiles broadly when ha
notes tho position of Jasper and Trenton in
tho lcaguo race.
Hough Out of Game
For many years Hough was an Idol In
Trenton, and is yet to many fans who re
call his sensational work with llrlstol In
the National League and his efforts ..-tnce
that time, but writers on the papers soured
on him nnd diove him away. And today for
the first time since the Inception or basket
ball thete Isn't a Trentoulan plavlng regu
laily on tho Trenton team Those who fol
lowed basketball back In the strenuous days
of the National League will lemember that
Trenton supported three first class teams
three of the best teams In the Kastern
States. Time changes all things.
1 Camden had a splendid chance to go the
limit with Jasper until Itoy Hteelo was taken
111. Tho break In the team play was more
seriously Interrupted when polln was placed
on the side lined. Camden will come back
In the second half of the series and Tren
ton may cut a figure, too. Heading, always
dangerous, is apt to start a streak. Va Nerl
cannot be considered Jasper may not be
quite so good lu the second half with Hough
out of the game, but Fuller may fill the
bill quite acceptably. Kerr, let go by Read
ing, has plugged up a hole in the Jasper
formation that at center and gives every
promise of being the best center In the
league before the wlndup.
No Professional Champion
While the college championship U always
decided there is no way to "dope" out the
professional title Therefore, -whether Grey
fctoclc or Wllkes-liarre holds that honor
Is a nutter of opinion. Wllttes-Barre won
the Pennsylvania State League title, Urey-
' ttocl; the Eastern and Patersou the luter
ttte. Gieystocl; won and lost In a two
game series with Paterson and Wilkes
Barre beat Paterson both games In their
Mrtea, Paterson declined to play Qrey
ttock a third game and Wilkes-Barre and
Preystoclc could pot agree on terms for a
' series, therefore none was played.
' And If one had been plaved, what would
, It have told? The rules are different In
both leagues Some teams are clever
eoqugh to adapt themselves to any stjle
ef rules, some are not. Uniform rules
Wist prevail in games that Bavor of a
championship. It 13 absurd to try and
iage a championship series. In which the
home team has nil the best of It. Wouldn't
It be a fine thine If III a world's oaseoau
. i, furies that the rules would ba of one de
SSrlptlon at the American League park
and quite the reverse on the National
, Eeirue grounds? Basketball needs uni
form rules and harmony among the pro
fessional leagues, so that the champion
sWp would be settled each year The heads
of the different leagues should form a
trlbaaal that would go over these affairs
od untangle them along the same lines as
ib fiational t'ommuwlon aoea tor oasuu.
