Faculty Decision of U. of P.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

It has been decided by the faculty committee on athletics at the University of Pennsylvania that all athletic teams of the college must in future obtain special permission of the committee to engage in contests on other than college grounds, The failure of the U. of P. team to meet the B. A. A. football eleven on Manhattan Field in New York recently has been explained by a member of this committee. He says that Dr. White expressed the professional opinion that seven of the eleven men were unfit to engage in a game. The committee therefore decided that it would be unjust to the other members of the team to announce who the out-of-trim men were. If a team was made up with the four sound men included, that would virtually be telling who the others were, and to make up a team composed entirely of substitutes would be unjust to the Boston men and to the regular 'varsity team. The secretary of the B. A. A. was in conference with the faculty committee on Monday evening and agreed to the righteousness of this argument, and expressed a desire to have the freshman team substituted for the game. He then telephoned to his team and received the consent of its management to the substitution. Subsequently, the Boston men refused to play the freshmen. The University of Pennsylvania Athletic Association has expressed its willingness to pay all bills resulting from the cancelling of the game.
