Practice Tuesday included work

was stressed oy the coach.
Sherwood voiced his' disappoint
ment In the lack of anticipated
. reinforcements to the football
V-anuad, expected to be on hand
after school started yesterday.
Only four new candidates signed
up. The roster includes about
45 persons to date. Sherwood
expected to have at least 65 can
didates to draw from this season.
' Main stumbling block Is the
lack of talent expected from last
year's Papoose team. Several
likely prospects failed to put in
an appearance so far.
Sherwood said the candidates
on hand are beginning to show
considerable football ''satrvy," but
the team as whole Is still weak
on tackling. Saturday's .scrim
mage showed the team to be es
pecially bad in this department
and from here on out, much of
the drill will be aimed at per

In a brief statement, Walter
Mulbry, secretary-treasurer of
baseball, said: 'The amendment
tc major and major-minor league
rule 3 (K), the bonus rule, on
winch a mail vote from the major
league clubs was requested Aug.
25, failed of passage."
The amendment, which had
been approved by the Major
league executive committee,
would have set aside provisions
of the bonus rule for the new
crop of players but would have
kept them in effect for three
years for those players already
Mulbry told newsmen the
amendment, "perhaps with modi
fications." would be on the agen
da for the joint Major league
meeting in December.
George M. Traulmen, president
of the National association, will
not request Minor leagues to vote
on the amendment, considering
the action of the Major leagues,
Briefly, the bonus rule provides I
that a player, paid more than
$5,000 to sign a Major, AAA or
AA league contract, may not be
farmed out without waivers. The
bonus amount for Class A clubs
is $1,500 and for B, C. and D clubs
Under an amendment, effective
March 31. 1919, bonus players
now signed may be optioned for
one year by a club which buys
or otherwise obtains their con
tract from the original assignor.
