The Committee Recommends Im-
portant Changes.
Prof. Stagg, of Chicago University,
Prof. Everett,, of the University of
Illinois, yesterday gave out for pub-
lication the revision of the football
rules. While the committee has om-
pleted its revision of the playing voles'
t asks that it be not discharged at
present as it is intended to make cer-
tain recommendatiors for the instcrue-
tion and direction of the officials of
the game, and perhaps to rearrange
and index the rules as a whole.
In its report the committee expIlains
its purposes in making the thorough
revision of the rules. It says:
"After careful consideration of the
rules it was deemed advisable to make
a thorough revision. This -was found
necessary owing to the presce eof
several obsolete rules, sonie contra-
dictory ones, many atmbiguous or in-
adequate and a number of which act-
ually needed to be chatged for the
good of the game. Your comnittee
o orked along the following plan:
"1. To make as few changes as pos-
sible of the vitai points of the game.
2, To make such changes in the rules
governing the game as woold reduce
the chances of injury without destroy-
ing the nature of the game. 3. Te so
change certain rules as to reduce the
occasion and the opportunities for

it will encourage the substitution of
