Tho MlBBOurl Valley conference waa
permanently organized. Chancellor
Strong of Kansas was elected presi
dent and Doan Isadore Loeb of Mis
souri secretary. Every college in the
conferonco was represented except
Iowa state. Nebraska was represent
ed by Chancellor Avery, Dean Rich
ardB, Regent Lyford and Dr. Clapp;
Kansas waa represented by President
Strong and tho entire board of re
gents; Ames was represented by Pro
fessor Byors, Drake by President Bell,
Washington by Professor Waldo, and
Missouri by her full board of regents.
Immediately after the conference
met a resolution providing that foot
ball should be abolished from the rep
resented institutions after December
1, 1910, was introduced. Tho debate
on this resolution lasted the entire
morning.- Although the conference
was held behind closed doors, it is
known thero was considerable opposi
tion to the resolution and It finally
failed of passage. Kansas was In fa
vor of it and took a very radical posi
tion. Missouri was also rather In
clined against the lifo.of tho game.
Tho other universities, howovor, wore
inoro conservative and- Kansas .and
Missouri gave In after rules wore
adopted limiting tho game.
Chief among tho restrictions placed
on tho school Is tho abolition of the
professional coach. After December
1, 1910, no short time coach will bo al
lowed. Tho coach must be elected by
tho board of regents and hold his of
llco for the full year. This, howovor,
does not do away with student coach

A committee, on rules was appoint
