eaa. NEW YORK, Nov. 2S. With the receipt
of the program of rules which are to
govern the Olympic sports at Stockholm.
Sweden, next year, the fact which imme
diately confronts the close observer of
such regulations Is that they appear par
ticularly restrictive and not at all founded
on the lines whereby "past performances"
have been made the Incentive for dupli
cation or betterment.
James E. Sullivan, rccretary of the
American Olympic committee, recently
received from KilMlan Hellstrom, secre
tary of the Swedish Olympic committee,
a list of what la called the final program
of rules, which the executive committee
of the American Olympic committee will
make careful Inquiry Into, aa there are
many parts which seem to require ex
planation and interpretation.
It Is conceded that It will be absolutely
necessary ;to have many of the rules
more clearly defined before the American
team sails. '
That American athletes will be ham
pered to no Inconsiderable tlf-gree by the
proposed Ideas In relation to the starting
of foot races, the conditions governing
the weight throwing, shot putting, and
Jumping is the Idea of all who ore
closely identified with track and field
sports, and who feel that the rules In re
lation to these games ore at direct vari
ance with common athletic custom and
opposed to the rules which hold In this
country, which were thought to be gen
In regard to the starting, after stating
that the start would be effected. by the
report of a pistol shot, 'the rule says
that no competitor shall touch the ground
in front of the scratch line with . any
part of his body, with- no mention made
as to penalty for false breaks. i '
Local devotees assert that If there Is
to be no penalty when a runner attempts
to anticipate the "gun," a premium Is
put on foot-racing unsporUmanshlp, with
the result that the luckiest and most
audacious violator of rules will profit.
This Is a rule which obtains In England,
but, strangely enough, only In scratch
and championship contests, penalties be
ing Imposed In handicap contests only.
The walkers will be subject to disquali
fication without any previous caution
aa to falrnefcs, which eeems another arbi
trary rule, and opposed to all other ays
terns, which provide for two cautions,
and then disqualification for the third
offense in the case of unfair walking.
In the running high Jump a competitor
may start at any height after five feet,
three Inches, but, havlnjr started, he
must continue at every height selected
by the Judges. This differs somewhat
from moat other rules in that a man in
this country can Daaa anv h.ih, v.
chooses, but can not, having failed, go
oacK to tne height passed.
to Be Considered
NEW YORK, Nov. 23.-That there mnv
be'a great deal of opposition by the col
leges to the system of choosing repre
sentatives for the Olympic games Is ap
parent by the announcement bv tht
American Athletic union that winners ol
the Indoor titles will be given great con
federation In the selection of the team
which will represent America at Stock
holm next summer. While some of the
athletes In the eastern and possibly the
middle western Institutions will be rep
resented at the meet, the majority of tho
college track stars will be so anxious to
get home for their short vacation that
they will not be able to compete, v
There are some colleges in the west
that have good candidates for positions
on the team, and naturally these are anx
ious to have their men make the trip if
possible, and thus add more glory to the
college colors. Under the recent an
nouncement it is likely that these insti
tutions will not contribute to the suDDort
of the team. .
The cold weather flae is an
to Catarrh sufferers. These persons know that with the return of
Winter the disease will be more intense and their suffering greatly
increased. During the warm season the symptoms of Catarrh may
have been milder because some of the impurities in the blood were
constantly passing out of the system through the perspiration. At
that time the pores were open and it was nature's favored opportunity
to rid the system of as great amount as possible of all germs, impurities
and morbid matters. Cold weather returning, partially closes the
pores and checks perspiration, then as a natural result Catarrh
Every symptom of Catarrh indicates impure blood. First there is
irritated and inflamed mucous membranes of the head, nose and throat,
from which there is a constant discharge of watery matter. This
comes from inflammation of those members, and is caused by catarrhal
matters in the circulation. Nature intends that these mucous surfaces
shall all be nourished by the blood, and as long as the circulation is
pure, this necessary work is satisfactorily performed, but catarrhal
impurities deposited into these delicate parts sets up inflammation, and
the discharge is a natural result. When this secretion begins to dry il
grows thicker and becomes sticky, then it adheres to the throat and
upper back portion of the mouth, causing an annoying straining and
coughing to loosen it. Other ordinary symptoms of Catarrh are
trace of foreign matter or catarrhal impurity. In other words S. S. S.
cures Catarrh by purifying the blood so that the mucous surfaces and
linings of the body are supplied with healthy blood instead of being
constantly diseased from the absorption of catarrhal impurities. Then
the inflamed membranes heal, the discharge is checked, head noises
cease, the stomach is benefited, the throat is cleared up, and every mis
erable symptom of Catarrh is corrected. There is but one way to
cure Catarrh purify the blood, and S. S. S. is the best of all blood
purifiers. Write for our special book on Catarrh, and learn of what
we consider the only safe and certain way to be cured. No charge for
the book. j7 SWIFT SPECIFIC CO. ATLANTA, CA.
