AMATEUR ATHLETE PROPERLY DEFINED Tlie definition oC an amateur waa agreed upon recently at Lyon, France, by a committee the International Amateur Athletic federation. It fol- lows closely the "definition as prepar- ed in the report of the special com- mittee submitted to the federation congress held at Berlin iu 1.913, and embraces the following rules: "I. An amateur is one who com- petes only for the love of sport. "2. Competing for money or any other pecuniary reward iu any sport considered as athletic sport makes the competitor a professional in all sports considered as athletic sports. "3. Iu the event ot an amateur com- peting with or against a professional in any sport, not for money and other pecuniary reward, then the member of the federation to which the athlete belongs shall be the judge of such competitor's status, according to its own rules, and its certificate as to the competitor's status shall be ac- cepted by all other members of the federation. '4. In track and field athletic sports any one who knowingly com- petes with "ar against a professional, thereby ceases to be an amateur. "5. One who teaches, trains or coaches in any sport for money or professional, except, hb'wevcr, that BO far as competition in bis own country and there only is concerned.
