WASHINGTON. May .-Tuberculoals In
fectlon from bovine and other germs ver
sus Infection through human germs waa
discussed at length today at the meeting
of the National association for the Study
and Prevention- of Tuberculoala In third
annual session here. The question was not
settled and the proposition Waa mooted of
appointing a committee to continue the
study of that subject
The question came up at the afternoon
session of Tuberculosis In Children. Dr.
Cherles Hunter Dunn of Boston had for
his subject "Recent Advances In the
Knowledge of Tuberculosis in Children."
Discussing the frequency of tuberculosis
In early life he said It Increases from
month to month and year to year, but that
In the cases In which It was found as the
canso of death It decreased from year to
year. In early life tuberculoala did not
affect the lungs as It did In the case of
the adult,' but frequently remained hidden
In the Internal glands In children until an
acuta form of tubercular meningitis or
pneumonia caused death. He declared
children have no power of resistance
agalnat these acute ' outbreaks and small
bablea showed no tendency toward the
healing of the lesions.
foareee af Infection.
Coming to the sources Of tubercular In
fection he mentioned the various theories
that It was congenital, due to dust or
most sputum and said that while there
Was truth In all of them, ths commonest
source was house contagion from tuber
cular surroundings. In ths order of fre
quency, he said, tuberculoala entered the
body through the lungs, through the In
testines or through the tonsils and the
pharynx and locatea Itself In the nearest
glands. In diagnosing latent forms of the
disease he aald that the X-ray waa the
most important meana of discovering It..
Finally he spoke on the subject of Im
munising a person against tuberculosis V"
means of vaccination. He reviewed the pr
gress mad- In that direction and aald ho
believed that human beings were in a
pretty good state of natural resistance and
held out hope of finding a vaccine to make
that resistance absolute.
How Coataajloa Is Acejalred. -
Dr. Henry L. K. Shaw of Albany. N. Y.,
In discussing the question, "The Present
Status of the Transmlsslblllty of Bovine
T,..w-..n..tn.i. - Tiiiitratri hv Infants and
' , . ,h" .h. . ...i I
Younar Children." argued that the usual ,
method of acquiring the disease was
through the contagion of man to man and
not thrnuah milk arid other foods. That
however, he said, should not cause a relaxa
tion of the efforts made and being made
to guard against Infection In that way.
Discussing the subject "Are Tuberculosis
Infants and Children In ths First Five
Years of Life Liable to be Boorces of
Infection T" Dr. Samuel 8. Adams of this
city took the ground that children were
subject to tuberculosis the ssm as adults
and that although the opportunities for In
fection wers great nevertheless, children
should be considered aa sources of infec
tion. International Coaaresa Heat Year.

Dr. Flick said: "The exhibit, will bo a

picture of what tuberculosis means to man
In Its devastation throughout the animal
kingdom. It will show the ravages of the i
disease upon man, . animals, birds and
fishes. It will show th cycle of life of!

the micro-organisms with which It may be
related and from w
ths mloro-organlams with which It as
sociates and fraternise. It will show the
method of growth of the - micro-organisms,
the changaa which they produce
on the subetsnces on which they grow
and the restrictions upon their growth and
development In nature. "The exhibit will
give a statistical demonstration of what
tuberculosis has meant to the world In the
past and what It meana In tbe prevent It
will ahow the widespread operation of
tuberculosis In every part of the world
and how It has trammeled ctvllliatlon. It
also will show what the crusade against
tuberculosis has so far accomplished and
what It may accomplish In the future.
Models of Hospitals.
'It will preaent models of hospitals for
consumptives, sanatoria, dispensaries, day
camps, convalescent farms, consumptive
colonies, consumptive classee, and will
show the various appliance and materlala
used for the prevention of tuberculosis,
and the manner of using them. The
whole world will participate In this exhibit,
so that It will be a world's fair, so to
speak, of everything which . can In any
way bear upon the crusade against tha
groat white plague."
So far the committee haa announced one
prise, namely, a prise of 11,000 for the best
evidence of efficient work done by sny
volunteer organisation since the last con
gress on tuberculosis, the prlie to be
awarded at the time of the congress.
Other prises will be announced later.
The United States government and state
governments have been asked to partici
pate In the congress with very encourag
ing answers from many of them.
At tonight's session Of the advisory coun
cil Dr. Herman M. Biggs, president of the
association, read a paper on compulsory
notification and registration of tuberculosis.
Among those participating In the discussion
were Frank J. Luts, St Louis, and Dr.
Henry Swell, Denver.
NAME FOR NEW BATTLESHIP
Delaware May Be Honored by GlTlng
Title to First Bis;
WASHINGTON, May g. President Roose
velt has under consideration the naming
of the two battleships of the Dreadnaught
type, for which contracts will soon h
awarded. The ahlps will be given namea of
states, according to custom. Most of the
StsA'S have been honored already, but
there remain Delaware, Utah, North Da
kota and New York who have no war
vessels named for them. New York is
eliminated for the reason that' there la an
armored cruiser named for the dty of
New York. When Ok'.ahoma qualifies an
a atate It will give the Navy department
one additional name to draw upon.
While no aqUon was taken today It was
thought likely that Delaware, the second
smallest state In the union, will he honored
by having one of the great battleships
named for It and that Utah will be the
other state to be ao honored. An effort
haa been made to induce the president to
authorize the renaming of the cruiser New
York and to call one of the new battle-
ships after that state, but It Is not probable
r . . . . ... . .
that the movement will succeed. Eventu
ally the war vessels of types smaller than
battleships of the first clnss must be re
named If the present plan Is carried ou.

FOOT BALL RULES ARE UP AGAIN
f. Rarrard Flats that the
-Yard Ralo aa th
Forward Fas War
Many persons lrterested In foot hall and
all the fourteen members of the Intercol
leglat foot ball rules committee were of the
opinion after play was ended last season
that they had done much to Improve the
gam of foot ball. Especially was the be
lief current that the ten-yard rule was a
notable feature In the betterment of the
game. It was argued that because of the
ten-yard rule gains by rushing through
the Una were made less easily posalblc.
That forcbd the resort to end plays and
ths trying of more daring moves In th
line Of advancing the ball. It was consid
ered that the adoption of tha forward paas
waa such an apt corollary to the rule re
garding ten yards that the two regulations
worked splendidly together for real reform
in the game.
Coaches and players were forced to the
use of the forward pass In A great many
cases ss the only chance to make the re
quired ten yards. A premium waa put on
the 'running features of the frame, at any
event and the steady pounding at the line,
which was practically the only strategy
Of many foot ball Instructors, was swept
away as an almost useless thing. It comes,
therefor, as a sort of surprise to read the
following statement In the Harvard Bul
letin, taken from an article by Arthur M.
Beale, Harvard, '97:.
The change from five to ten yards to be
gained In three downs was a failure, be
cause no team could consistently hope to
retain possession of the ball by rushing
against an equally matched team, the ten
yards being too great a distance to be
covered In three downs. The other great
change, the forward pass, although inter
esting In Its way, It must be admitted, was
a failure from a foot ball standpoint. Such
a piny is against all theory of the game
and la really substituting something eUe
to take the place of a regular foot ball
play. It would be almost as well to toss
up a coin to see If the offense should gain
thirty yards or should lose th ball.
.New. Foot Ball's Birth.
Mr. Beale forgets, as many others have,
that "new foot ball" was really and truly
new last fall. Th crudities of play of
many of the large teams were chargeable
to the fact that the game was so different
and there had been small time to perfect
the practice of It. This season it may
safely he said there will be a marked differ
ence. The Intelligent men who study foot
ball for the purpose of teaching it have
absorbed the theories perfectly by now.
They know. Just what they have to teach,
and the season of last year, which wus
experimental In character. Is to be fol
lowed by one In which the true beauties
of the game will be shown forth.
The British have been our severest crlttos
In foot ball because of certain character
istics and tendencies which the game as It
has been played here has developed. And
yet many Englishmen who saw foot ball
last year were delighted with the game
and spoke of It continued Improvement
along the lines' laid down. They doubtless
saw In It a return to the running and
passing In the open field of their own
Rugby game. We or content here In the
United States to readopt an old feature of
the earlier game which has survived the
test of time and proved Its worth. On the
other' hand, Americans will continue to
stand up for the systematized putting the
ball Into play which the American game
has made a feature.
Of the forward pass Mr. Beale continues
by saying that It Is a dangerous featura.
That Is because, according to him, a player
with every aehse concentrated cn the ap
proaching ball may be the victim of a hard
rush by an opposing player which may re
sult' In Injury. So may equally n man
awaiting a kicked ball In the bRckfleld.
and he may receive an even greater thrust
by the oncoming rush of a player who Is
moving at top speed. Indeed, a man may
receive Injury from n tackle at all tlmee
or at any time. That dependa entirely on
rlrcumatancea. And again, a man about
to catch a ball may not be Interfered with
j by rushing and checking. He Is not eligible
for that sort of attention until he catches
tho ball. A player of the opposing side
near enough to do anything like that might
very well go after the" ball himself with I
better hopes of making gains.
Fear of the Fumble.
There are some other things which Mr.
Beale has to say. "There Is one feature
that Is not right" continues Mr. Beale.
"Ask any player what It Is In foot ball he
most dreads, what slows down the play
and prevents the side having the ball from
trying dashing plays In the hope of long
runs, why long paaaes are not resorted to
and why ths ball Is not passed from player
to player as the player with the ball la
tackled. He would say that It Is the fear
of losing the ball by a fumble. It seems
to me, then, that If we ran eliminate the
rlskv play we shall encourage open play
and Increase the good spectacular play of
rushing with the ball, which la the funda
mental play In Rugby foot ball.
"If It were not for the fear of fumbling j
It goes without saying that more passes,
, , . t .... ,
long and short, would be tried; players
.k, n k. m .k. kii .
about to be tackled would psss the ball to
another runner, thereby advancing ths ball
further. Why not do awsy with extreme
penalty of a fumble; that Is. the loss of
the ball, and substitute therefor the pen
alty or rule that In ths cjse of a fumble
and the recovery by an opponent the ball
shall be down In the place where It was
fumbled? The possession of the ball Is
worth from forty to sixty yards and the
loss of such by a fumble Is th severest
penalty to which any team may be mads
subject and Is out of all proportion with
the mloplay, as the hard work of an entire
team for a whole game may be lost by ons
"Having don away alth the objection
to attempting open play by eliminating
the extreme penalty for fumbling, we
should build up the new gam by two
fundamental changes. Instead of the for
ward pass over the line we should allow ss
many paaoes, forward, bark or sideways,
as desired if the ball does not go ahead of
tbe line of scrimmage.- This Is for tha
purpose of having the eventual runner get
a good start and would require some very
pretty play In passing from piaycr to
player to get an opening for a rush. Ws
should havs th same ruling for an Inter
cepted pass as for a fumble. It would
amount to this, that the defense would
have to stup the progress of the ball to
have It doctored down either by obtaining
possession of It or by boijing tha rusher
who baa possession of It."
Iw Hal Effective.
As to the restrictions on ths forward (mihs
and tha lessening of the penalty for
fumbling, th changes in tbe rules made
at the latent meeting of tha rule commit
to may hav escaped th attention of Mr.
Beale. Th oommitts baa made tbe wail
thought out suggestion that In the case of
a fumbl on th first or second down In
trying th forward aass the baj goes back
to th sld making th fumbl with a loaa
of half th dlatsmc between th point
where It was put In play and lta own
Mr. Beale winds us bis suggestions with
the following paragraphs: "All the changes
simplify, th Kama They da away with
the chalk llnea, linemen with their measur
ing rods, delays in order to measure third
downs, disputes over (oaMSMion of the ball
when two players on opposite sides are
hugging It the rldku.oua ttchniialltles of
ths forward pass, whether It crossed the
line so many feet from centar or whether
the right man caught it; they put th
American game back where It originally
was without the loss of any essentia'ly
"A few other of the old rules that do nut
fit are the penalties for holding and offside
play. These are now much too severe and
are not of the right sort. It Is discourag
ing for a team to be penalised by a large
distanoe penalty for the fault of one man.
Half the offside play, furthermore. Is tho
result of overanxiety and has no raj ef
fect on the play. For offside play, If by
the defence, the offense should have the
option of taking a penalty or not. They
will not take it after a fair gain bv the
play. If taken, the offending player should
be taken out of the game for a certain
number of rushes; the play should be
played over again from Its original place.
Holding should have a similar penalty,
only more severe. If a player of the offense
la offside or holds and the defense elects
to take the penalty, which of course It
would,, th offending player should b re
moved for a certain number of rushes.
Offside play by the defense might be pen
alised by giving an extra rush to the of
fense, and If by ths offense by taking away
"Th shape of the ball with the new
game should be round snd not elongated
as now. With onslde kicking a round ball
Is necessary. In order that the players
may Judge the bound. A round ball oan
be handled, passed and kicked more ac
curately than the ball now used. This
change has already been proposed and
probably will be made. N
"The changes suggested In this article
are simply outlined, no attempt' having
been made to show what the final rules
should be; but with these changes wo
should have all the best points of the
Amerlcan and English games combined.
and It should result In the best possible
game of foot ball."
