Clipping:The status of the rules committee; and of the convention; and of the rules
|Add a Clipping|
|Date||Sunday, November 20, 1870|
The Chairman of the Committee of Rules will close his connection with the National Association as a member of the committee of the next convention, his business obliging him to resign his position. He has been seven years in the committee, and has acted as chairman for four years.
It has been proposed to make the Committee of Rules an elective body, and it is to be hoped that this will be done, if only to get rid of the caucusing for President in order to get control of the appointments. Among the candidates for chairman of the Committee will be Hicks Hayhurst, of the Athletics; C. E. Thomas, of the Eurekas; Seaver Page, of the Actives; and G. Hubbell, of the Charter Oaks, all of whom are delegates to the convention. All are competent men, and all will act in the best interests of the association.
...There is no need of an annual meeting any longer. The rules will be as near completion at the end of this Convention as the game requires; and it is better that the fraternity have a good Convention every two or three years than only hold an attendance annually. The State Association Conventions will answer every purpose by their annual meetings.
