NEW YORK, Nov. 17.- With a

King of all he surveys in his royal

dom has decided to retire from all
championship competition, renoun-
cing his amateur standing at the
same time, to fulfill a contract to
make 12 one-reel motion pictures
on educational golfing subjects.
Signed Contract Nov. 13.
Jones signed a contract four days
ago, Nov. 13, with Warner Bros. pic-
tures, after considerable negotia-
tion, and in a statement of sweep-
ing frankness today made known
his intention to retire from all
"golfing competition of a serious
nature," after 14 years of intense
tournament play in this country
In short, business has taken the
place of pleasure and recreation, so
far as the Jones golf is concerned.

sweep of all the championships of

Intended to Retire.
He intended to retire from title
tournaments, anyway, he revealed,
but had intended to "drop out quiet-
ly by neglecting to send in my en-
try to the Open championship next
spring." Now, however, and in view
of the business venture he has un-
dertaken, he thought it necessary
that a "clear understand'ng" be had
by the golfing public that has made
the great Georgian its idle since as
a youth of 14 he first crashed the
barriers of national championship
attention in 1916 at Philadelphia.
"Of course, the matter of mone-
tary compensation enters into the
discussion," his statement said.
"And it is for numerous reasons
that I wish to be perfectly under-
stood on this score. The amateur
status problem is one of the most
serious with which the United
States Gold association has to deal
for the good of the game as a whole.
"I am not certain that thenstep
I am taking is in a strict sense a
violation of the amateur rule. I
think a lot might be said on either
side, but I am so far convinced that
it is contrary to the spirit of ama-
teurism that I am prepared to ac-
cept and even endorse a ruling that
it is an infringement."

Approval of the deferred rushing system drafted by a special
student committee to supplement the deferred residence and pledg-
ing regulations passed last year by the Senate Committee on Student
Affairs, was given yesterday afternoon by the Interfraternity council.
The action, which was nearly unanimous, came after a consider-
ation of three plans presented by the Judiciary committee of the
council following its revision of certain sections of the plan proposed
by the student sub-committee of the Senate committee.
The three plans differed in the methods for holding rushing
engagements during the first semester, or orientation period. 'The
one adopted provides for two "open houses" and dinners once each
week during the last seven or eight weeks of the semester. Several
minor changes were also made in the plan.
