Football Rules' Committee Claim
Coaches Were the Real
Special to The Telegraph
New York, Jan. 22.—Football rule
makers while in a. way inclined to
leave the present code intact, may de
cide upon more stringent measures to
prevent coaching and signalling from
the side lines. During the past sea
son substitutes and coaches were
charged with unfairness along this
An interesting contribution to the
question of side line coaching has
been made by the 1014 captains of
prominent university and college
elevents to the Yale News. That the
practice is indulged by all coaches,
despite rule 25, section 1 of the foot
ball code, which expressly forbids it,
is an open secret, and where game
officials have been able to detect in
fringements, warnings, or imposition
of the stipulated tlfteen-yard penalty
have followed. The, trouble is that,
through signals and the use of sub
stitutes, coaches are able to carry in
structions and criticism to the players
without being caught. Obviously this
practice puts the coach Into the game
With 8 veangeance, and thus violates
the spirit of the intercollegiate agree
ment to the effect that none but un
dergraduates in good standing mav
participate in games. Captain Talbot,
of Yale, writes his opinion that the
quarterback should run the eleven
without assistance from the side lines.
But, lie says, if the coach were kept
away from the side lines entirely, j
there would be no one to watch thei
condition of the men. Thus he favors I
retention of the coaches on the side
lines, but believes that everything
should be done (o stop coaching in the
course of a game. The Harvard cap-i
tain is not represented in the sympos-i
lum of opinions, for reasons, no doubt,
which may be regarded ns obvious.
Harold Ballin, Princeton's leader, is]
not In favor of removing coaches from I
the side lines, and gives his reasons, I
frankly, as follows:
"I do not favor removal of coaches,
because substitutes can receive in
structions in this way that, they can
not get as well in any other, the Idea
being that the coaches go over the
game with them as it is played, point
ing out mistakes as they are made.
Moreover, communications between
ihe coaches and players are not fre
quent enough to be usually of vital
importance, as it means taking one
regular out of the game on each oc

Thinking of Quality
These days, most men when they think ol a smoke, think of
King Oscar 5c Cigars
It's the way quality always affects the mind. Its influence
is simply irresistible. Think of soap, silver, flour and what
not and the quality kinds are the ones you instinctively
think of.
It's a good thing, too.
Wilmington Men
Want Another Flag
Special to The Telegraph
Wilmington, Del., Jan. 22.—0n their
return from the Tri-State meeting
from Philadelphia both Tom Brown
and Peter Cassidy announced their in
tention to get Into the game stronger
than ever and will try hard for an
other pennant. With the exception
of Ritter who signed with the New
York Giants, and Tony Marhefka,
who goes to New London, the team
will remain intact. However, it is the
intention to get busy in a search for
promising youngsters.
Jimmy Jackson, although sought by
at least two other leagues, provided
he did not sign again with the Chicks,
said he would be back and that he had
in view as a successor to Marhefka a
Philadelphia lad named Pearce, who
was sent to Dayton last year by Cin
cinnati upon the recommendation of
Lave Cross. Tony mingled with the
crowd in the hotel corridor and, al
though he regretted that he-had to
quit while being the swiftest short
garden man in the league, he was
glad that the chance had come for
him to show his speed in some other
Eddie Zimmerman
Signs With Newark
York, Pa., Jan. 22.—Eddie Zimmer
man, who is spending the winter at
his home here, does not want to be
classed with the "Vets." The former
Harrisburg third baseman who has
re-signed with the Newark Inter
national League club has been keeping
in good physical condition since the
season closed and will be ready when
the bell sounds for Spring practice.
Scout Larry Sutton, of the Newark
team, was in the city yesterday, and
after a long conference with Zimmer
man, the latter signed the contract,
which was for one year, and carried a
substantial increase in salary over last
season. Zimmerman will probably be
reappointed captain again this "sea

Will Not Divulge the Names of His
Associates or Price
Special to The Telegraph
fork, Pa,, Jan. 22. —Final action
which will give George Washington
Heckert full control of the York team
came at a meeting of the York Base
ball Association this morning. The
consideration was not announced, hut
a statement was made that the new
owner would not be required to as
sume the debts of the old association.
Manager Heckert is not ready to
make public the names of the men
who are identified with him in the
York club. It is known that J. J.
Gerry will continue as president of
the club. A meeting for the election
of officers of the new organization
will be held on Monday of next week,
at \vhich time plans for the coming
season will be discussed.
Heckert will again manage the club
and will start work within the next
few weeks on lining his team up for
the opening game May 6. Catcher
Porte, who was with the York club
during the season of 1912, had an in
terview with Heckert in Philadelphia
on Tuesday, but no agreement was
made to take the former player back
In the fold. A number of letters from
young players who want to be given a
chance have been received by Man
ager Heckert during the past week,
but nothing will be done until every
thing regarding the club sale is set
tled. In all probability the same sys
tem will be carried out this year as
last, all recruits desiring try-outs be
ing permitted to come here at their j
own expense.
Real Baseball War
Said to Be Inevitable
Special to The Telegraph
Philadelphia, Jan. 22.—A baseball
I war that bids fair to equal that of
I 1901, when the American League
I broke its way into the ranks of or
j ganized baseball, seems to be inevit
able with the anouncement made yes
terday by President Baker, of the
Phillies, that Catcher Billy Killifer had
signed to play with the Dooin clan
this season, although he has already
signed to play with the Chicago team
of the Federal League.
It is more than likely that the
courts will be called upon to deter
mine the issues between the baseball
leagues, and that the fight will revolve
around the famous "reserve clause"
which figures so prominently in the
Lajoie case, tho validity of which was
sustained by the Supreme Court of
Chicago, 111., Jan. 22. President
Johnson,2 of the American League,
was asked for his opinion on the ac
tion taken by the Philadelphia club.
"President Baker's action probably
is based on the Lajoie decision. The
reserve clause will stand in court, ac
cording to John G. Johnson, the at
torney who represented the National
League and won the case when Lajoie
, was enjoined from jumping from the
Philadelphia National to the Phila
delphia American club. This opinion
may have influenced Baker."
Johnson added something about a
change in the reserve clause as em
bodied in the present contracts. Just
what, change had been made he re
fused to say. He, like other big men
in organized ball, seems to believe that
the tight will be made on the reserve
feature, contrary to hints given by the
Federals that they will concentrate
their attack on the ten-day clause.
