Stags CHICAOO, Dec. 18.-Football claimed the lives of nine players during the 191S season-three less than^the 1917 toll, nine less than in 1916 and seven under the toU of 191B, according to figures compiled by the Associated Press! today, in-1914 there werte 15 deaths. yirtually all ot the victims were' "free lance" players not participating, in gfimes'conducted uuder college and; .university physical direction. Sgme of' them bad : only' limited knowledge of the game. i "The-figures will continue to .decrease until fatalities 'ini America's roughest outdoor game have\been entirely eliminated," said A.; A. Stagg, the veteran football coach at the University of Chicago, today. He added that the greatest menace to the game Is the lack ot proper training ^^and, proper physical examination. WMle eome of the larger high schools npw require physical'examination, in m6st-'of the smaller cities this Is entirely'ignoreci.

XUTOMOTIVE ENGINEERS sible exception of Labor, none of -his opponents would welcome a different result. The country, in fact, agreed that the man who made victory possible is the man best fitted to undertake reconstruction. Where diver-; gence of opinion exists is over the character of the coalition behind him. Should Be More Representative It is undoubtedly unfortunate that his government is-not more widely representative, especially dt Labor. AH London papers agree that no basis Ifl offered for an-estimation of the' results because too many factors entered into the eleoMon..

Finally, there is the absentee "eoiaiers' vote, which can be counted. If iTCoelved^Si the mall of December 28- : , Are Apathetic ' Returning from the Rhine through France, your correspondent made inquiries -v^herever poEiible of British tmlts concerning their attitude toward the. elections. iGeneral opinion was that the men were apathetic, con-seqbiently vote record will be but a moiety of the soldiers. The reason 'often given was thet 'the men feel the elections should' not have been held until demoJ)IlIzatl6n was complete, and In a few, cases it was added that soldiers .on their rehim will take the situation Into their own hands. The dlfltrlbution ot ballots is also far from complete. Polling day Itself was the 'flattest thing Imaginable. Hitherto elections have been a season of national holiday, and spread over three weeks, with stump orators, bands; general turmoil and- excitement passing progressively through the conetituencies, with- climax after pUmax as the vote was �, counted. Holding the elections In one day cut out these picturesque features, and the ardor of t^e poQitlcal enthusi- i asts was still f^irther dampened by 1 the postponement of the declaration ! of the result for a fortnight. Radical Reconstruction  Behind all this is the, grave sense of national responsibility, premonitions, new cleavages, new groupings and radical reca(nstruction of the state's fabric, Dull though It may be on the surface, Incficatlons are not lacking of tho seething unresf> beneath. Competent polIticianB consider that even though the Coalition government is returned by a substantial majority it is only a makeshift to tide the country over the' reconstruo siderable damage to his car'and might have proved serious to himself. W^iIle driving Aome from town the steering-gear of his automobile broke, causing the car to swerve and run into the fence. The front axle and both front wheels were smashed and the engine was badly damaged, as^well as Renders, radiator, and other trojit' portions of the machine, but Mr.' Taylor; himself fortunately escaped' -vithout,injury. . ^ Mr..
