NEW YORK. Dec. ll.-hTe "amateur"
and other questions of Tltal importance
to athletic- competitions will be discussed
at a conference here next Monday by
representatives of the governing bodies
controlling the several branches of ama
teur sports. The conferences may last
throughout the week and In all probabil
ity a definite agreement will be reached
os to what constitutes an amateur and
how such standing may be forfeited and
Prior to tiie meeting the delegates will
be furnished with a list of suggestions
compiled by the executive and advisory
committee of the Intercollegiate Associa
tion of Amateur Athletes of America.
These suggestions were formulated at a
meeting held here yesterday and are
given out for what they ore worth but
not as definite conclusions In regard to
The committee describes an amateur
sportsmen as one who engages In sport
solely for the pleasure and physical ben
efits he derives therefrom and to whom
sport Is nothing more than a vocation.
How to Los Standlasj.
In the opinion of tlie committee a per
son should ceaue to be an amateur by
committing any of the following acts:
A By competing or giving aa exhibi
tion in anv athletic snort under on as
sumed name, or by being guilty of any
fraud or other grossly upsportamaniiae
rnrirlnrt in rinnertfnii therewith.
B Hy directly or indirectly receiving
pay or financial Benerits In consioeraiion
of. or as a reward for participating In
anv public athlolic corporation or exhi
bition. . .
By dlrertly or indirectly, receiving
pay or financial benefits In consideration
of or as a reward for instructing or
preparing any person In or for any ath
letic competition, exhibition or exercise.
v D By granting or permitting the use
of olio's name to advertise or promote
the sale of or to act as the personal so
licitor for the sale or ss the actual sales
man, of sporting goods, prise trophlea or
other commodities for use chiefly in or
in connection with athletic games or ex
hibitions: or hy engaging for pay or fi
nancial benefit In any occupation or bus
iness transactions wherein his usefulness
or value arises chiefly from the public
ity given or to be glvej) to the reputa
tion or fame which he haa secured from
his athletic performances, rather than
from his ability to perforin the usual and
natural acts and duties Incident to such
occupation or transaction.
E By having played in any public
competition or exhibition upon a teem on
which there were professionals, Put wno
himself had not ben paid to play or
conch, or who In any manner, except by
reason of such associating, has not had
his amateur status effected: or without
bavins: first obtained the consent of the
organisation governing such sport by
having participated there in any individ
ual public competition or exhibition with
or avalnat a professional, but who ex
cept by reason of such associating has
not had his amateur status aiiocten.
Rhoald Hare Pardonlaar Power.
Having covered this field the commit
tee suggests that any organisation gov
erning a sport should have a pardoning
power hy which to relieve an amateur
of the effect of hla acts If It mere shown
to Its satisfaction that such acts were
committed through Ignorance, Inadvert
ence or excusable error.
They recommend that a team of ama
teurs representing a well established
organisation should not he prevented
from participating In a public competi
tion or exhibition against a team com
posed of professionals. This has refer
ence to foot ball games where a slnclo
professional player on a team makes the
entire team professionals, a fact whb'h
caused some cancellations of games be
tween colleges during the 1!I6 season. It
also has reference to track and field
athletics, where members of tha team
compete separately In a regular serloa
of standard events and not merely ono
or more spoclal contests.
In recommending penalties, the com
mittee advises that any ono who Is guilty
of an act sot down in clause "A" shall
never be permitted to oompete as an
amateur In any sport. In clause "B" he
hall never be permitted to oompete as
an amateur In a sport or sports In which
the act was committed, but after a period
of five years has elapsed, he may be
restored to amateur standing In any sport
other than that In which such act was
Permitted to Apply.
In clause "C" he shall not be permitted
during the period of his coaching or
training, to take part In any amateur
competition but on his ceasing to coach
or train he shall be privileged to apply
to the governing body of any sport other
than that In which such act was com
mitted, for permission to compete as an
amateur. After a period of five years
has elapsed from tha commission of the
act, he shall be privileged to apply for
permission to compete aa an amateur by
the governing body In that particular
sport upon assurance being given cf no
future violation on Ills part.
This would enable a paid college foot
ball coach to regain his amnteur stsndlng
In tennis, golf or any other sport In one
year and at foot ball after a lapse of five
Under clause "D" a person who haa
res aed to permit his athletic name to be
capitalised may en positive assurances to
that effect he returned to good standing.
Offenders under clause "E" may on
similar assurance be reinstated In any
sport other than that In which the act
was committed and after the elapse of
one year he may be permitted to oompete
In the sport In which the act was committed.
