Regulation Is Designed To Discourage
Use Of Aerial Game By Teams
As Last Resort
(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, March 20.-Important
gridiron rule changes, one placing a
check on the indiscriminate use of the
forward pass and another designed to
eliminate the intentional safety, were
made today by the football rules corn-
mittee in annual session here.
The change involving the forward
pass, which provides a penalty of five
yards for the second and third in-
complete passes in any series of plays,

Denmark Mourns As PneumoniaE
Claims Dowager Queen Louise

(By Associated Press)
COPENHAGEN, Denmark, March 20.
Dowager Queen Louise of Denmark,
widow of King Frederick VIII died
this evening, plunging the land into
mourning. Her death was directly
due to a heart attack superinduced by
pneumonia. She was 74 years of age.
Several days ago symptoms of pneu-
monia appeared and last night the
heart was greatly affected. The queen
rallied through remedial treatment
but another attack, still more severe,

came at 4 o'clock this afternoon. She
died shortly afterward from heart
paralysis. The organ had become
weakened by the racking cough of
the pneumonia and the effects of a
serious illness which she suffered last
Queen Louise was the first sovereign
of Denmark to die as Dowager Queen
in 150 years. All of her children, ex-
cept King Haakon of Norway, were
at the death bed as well as Queen
Alexandria, Crown Prince Christian
Frederick, and Prince Knut.

Secretary Kellogg Will Confer
President In Making
Final Decision


Fielding H. Yost, director of
intercollegiate athletics, wheni
interviewed last night concern- I
ing the new rule stated: "Gen-
crally speaking I am not in favorI
of any restriction on the forward
pass and would have been betterj
pleased had the committee en-
couraged the use of the pass." r
Yost expressed gratification!i
over the changed rule concern-
ing the safety.,d
came as a surprise in view of repeat-C
ed statements from members of the a
committee that they were opposed tob
any tampering with the aerial game.
The safety rule was revised so that 1
a team making a safety must put the °
ball in play on its own 25 yard line '
by a kick on the first down with the
opposing team restrained to the 30 b
yard line. The other changes involv-
ed the boundary line, seeking to keep
all play within the legal playing field.
The changes provide that:l
te second and third ico n
.lIlte fWW passes, which shall
be lnde bfore 1 first dowi I

penialized by a loss of five yards.
A team making a safety must

The new forward pass rule was de-I
signed to discourage the ill conceived b
pass as a last minute resort by a teamC
"in the ruck." Two such penaltiesh
would be the most a team could incurc
in any one series of plays under theb
ruling since the first play of the series
would be exempted and the ball would
automatically change hands after an
incomplete pass on the fourth down.n
In explaining the new safety rule,
Chairman E. K. Hall, said it was1
dIrafted to eliminate a series of in-
tentional safeties by a team in then
lead as a stall for time. The rule will
make it mandatory for a team to kick
on the first down with the on side

possession of the ball.

bleak hillside covered with snow they

Of Passaic Tie-up


(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, March 20.-The
Passaic textile strike problem reach-

Senator La Follette, Republican, Wis-

authorize the Senate manufacutrers'

The resolution was referred to the

had provoked a debate during which,
on one hand, communists were charg-
ed with responsibility for continuing
the disturbed conditions while on the
other, Senator Porah, Republican,
Idaho, expressed the opinion that
wages of the strikers "are far below
what we suppose is a living wage."
Thirteen charges by strikers were

Grip Epidemic
Believed To Be
Under Control
With a material decline reported i
the number of new cases of grippe,
Health service authorities yesterday
expressed the belief that the epidemic
which has swept the campus in re-
cent weeks has reached its climax.
Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, director,.
announced that throughout the day
only 10 new patients were added to
ithe list of victims of the disease, as
against more than 50 for early every
other day this week. Wh le Dr. For-
sythe does not assume that the figure
for one day can be taken as proof
that the epidemic is on the decline,
lie believes "the high water mark has
been reached."
The disease has been prevalent on
the campus for more than two weeks
reaching its height last Wednesday
and Thursday, when more than 500
students are believed to have been af-
fected, and it was rumored that spring
vacation would be held two weeks
early in an effort to stem the con-
In spite of its prevalency, the dis-
ease has not been severe and no com-
plications have arisen. With the ex-
ception of the one case that develop-

WASHINGTON, March 20.-Ameri-
can participation in the Geneva con-
ference next September, called to dis-
cuss American reservations to the
World court, depends upon the nature
of the discussion plan.
An authorized outline of the admin-
istration's view point disclosed tolay
I that no American participation is to
be expected if the conference plans to
1 modify the American reservations or
attempt their interpretation.
If kept within the proper limit, no
objection will be made to the conven-
ing of the conference, as suggested
by a resolution of the council of the
League of Nations.
The Washington government does
not believe that the conference was
called with a view to any modifica-
tion of the reservations or that its
i action will in any way represent ac-
tion by the league. Whether an
American representative will partici-
pate will be decided after Secretary
Kellogg has conferred with President
Coolidge, Chairman Borah of the Sen-
ate foreign relations committee, and
others. The outline of administration
views which became available today
was as follows:
"The Washington government does
not understand that the league claims
any power or jurisdiction to pass up-
on the reservations or that it has at-
tempted to do so. The information of
the state department is that the coun-
cil merely has suggested that the na-
tions adhering to the court should
each select representatives to meet at
Geneva Sept. 1 to discuss these reser-
Lansing Quintet Eliminated In Final
Game Of Season, 16 to 13
In a game characterized by the
fast play and close guarding of both
teams, Ann Arbor defeated Lansing
high last night at Waterman gym-
nasium by a score of 16 to 13, and
t thereby won the region three class A
basketball championship. The Lan-
sing team was tired by the fast game
they were forced to play Friday night,
while Ann Arbor's two day rest gave
them the needed stamina to win. I
The first half was execptionally
fast, though little scoring was done,
I each team having only five points
E when the period ended. In these two
periodsAnn Arbor's defense was su-
perb, Duflield of Lansing scoring his
team's first basket as the second
quarter ended.
In the third period Lansing assum-
ed a 10 to 7 lead, and the last quarter
opened with Ann Arbor trying
desperately to score. Soon after
the opening whistle Wrathell of
Ann Arbor scored from the cen-
ter of the floor. Kagey followed
with a counter, and then proceeded tc
make another basket and two free
throws. A moment later Taylor
cinched the game with a shot from
under the basket, andi Kagey again
counted from the free throw line a
the final gun was shot.
Both teams showed excellent bas-
ketball, and had Lansing had the op-
portunity to rest another day the out-
come might have been different. These
1 two squads were the survivors of the
sectional tournament, and will repre-
sent this district in the state tourna.
