an exhaustive discussion of the law, the
opinion says:

elect a mavor in odd numbered years an
election will be held and a mayor, two
councilinen-at-large and one councilman
from each ward shall be elected.
In cities of the second clsss that elect a
mayor In even numbered years, the usual
number of councilmen shsll be elected at
the March, 130R. election, according to the
provisions of paragraph 2 section 6)8 of
the code. In however, no election
will be hold in such cities, the term of
those cmtnellmen and officers expiring in

NEW YORK, Jan. 26. Important changes.
in the rule govt rnitig the forward- pass
play, which will prove of advantage to
weaker teams,, and other foot ball legisla
tion.' were made by ihe intercollcgiateyfoot
ball rules committee, which concluded its
session here tonight.
The new rule on the play of the forward
pass covers particularly the Illegal touch
ing of the ball. When Illegally touched the
side making the illegal play loses the ball
to its opponents on the spot from which
the pass was mude. According to the new
rule, only the man of the passer's side who
first h'gally touched the ball may there
after recover It until it lias been . touched
by an opponent! , If the forward pass is
legally touched and then free and is then
touched by another player' of the passer's
slda, the ball goes to the opponents at tha
point where touched.
Holding- nd Tackling.
The committeo considered, the question of
defensive tactics in , connection with .the
forward pass and. it wars decided that while
the forward .pass Is in the air, the players
of the defensive side may not use their
hands or arms on their opponent except
to push them out of the way to get at the
ball. In order to eliminate holding and
tackling, it is provided that the players
of the side making the forward pass, who.
are eligible to receive the pass, may use
their hands and arms Just the same way
that players go down under the kick.
A new rule was passed making the Inter
mission between the halves of the game
fifteen minutes. A delay of two minutes
beyond that time tvea the ball to the team
on the field, which may then place the ball
