NEW RULES DISAPPOINT
SPEED BOAT "WIZARO"1
(By Associated Press)
Algonac, Mich., Dec. 8. - "Chris"
Smith, the speedboat builder of Ai-
gonac, is disappointed. "The Wizard,"
as he is generally known among pow-
erboat enthusiasts, said during the
Harmsworth gold cup regatta this year
at Detroit that in 19,22 he would build
a hydroplane capable of 100 miles per
hour for Commodore Wood.
Since that regatta, however, the
American powerboat association by

altering the rules governing the gold Under the revised rules the gold
cup contest, has virtually eliminated cup event is expected to attract a
that annual classic as a contest for large field of contenders of the run-
speed, leaving the British internation- about type and develop a speed of
al (Harmsworth) trophy contest as the from 35 to 40 miles an hour. Gar

only primary speed race. Whether
the Harmsworth event will be held in
1922 depends mainly upon the inclina-
tion of foreign powerboat enthusiasts
to challenge for the trophy now held
by Gar Wood of Detroit.
Disinclination of American power-
boat men to compete with Gar Wood
and his 80 mile an hour boats for the'
gold cup trophy, led the American
Powerboat association to revise the
dules for that event, restoring it to
competition by displacement craft.

Wood's Miss America II, with which
he won the event this year, exceeded
80 miles an hour in the one-mile trials
for the Lake George cup.
Chris Smith has built practically all
of Commodore Wood's speedboats and
has had the added interest in their per-
formance given by the fact that his
sons, Jay and Bernard, have handled
the engines for Wood in all his con-
tests.
Sport Clippings
Notre Dame became a possible op-
ponent for Centre college at San Die-
go, when the San Diego chamber of
commerce inquired for the terms upon
which the Irish would consent to
make the trip. The Notre Dame ath-
let board answered immediately and
further action rests with San Diego.
Plans are under way at the Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania for an inva-
sion of the Central West this winter
by the.Quaker wrestling team. Penn-
sylvania has received an invitation
from the University of Iowa wrestlers.
Elmer W. McDevitt, head football
coach at Northwestern university for
the last two years, left the Evanston
campus Wednesday afternoon to re-
turn to his home in Duluth, Minn.,
where he will resume his law prac-
tice. It has been definitely settled
that McDevitt will not return to
Northwestern next year to coach the
football squad.
Coach McDevitt leaves with the best
wishes of the students, faculty and
alumni. In the two years he has been
coach of the Northwestern teams he
has won the liking and respect of
everybody, and the only reason that
he is leaving is to make room for a
man who can be on the ground the
year around.
There is some doubt as to whether
Knute K. Rockne will accept the of-
fer of the position as director of ath-
letics at Northwestern university ac-
cording to Rockne's friends. Rockne
has a five year contract at Notre
Dame, three of which are unexpired.
Since he is a graduate coach of Notre
Dame and draws as large a salary
from that institution as Northwestern
has offered it is thought improbable
