Note: Johnny Layton withdrew from the tournament because of illness and was replaced by Joe
Procita.
Note: New York Times – Sunday - December 3, 1944
New rules of play, agreed upon by all the players at the meeting Friday, will bring an
innovation in Billiard championships. In an effort to eliminate safety play the sponsors have
provided a penalty of one point for a deliberate safety and, in addition, a penalty of the loss of
five points for a second consecutive safety.
Furthermore, contestants may shoot with either white ball instead if the old system of each
man using the same cue ball through a match. This has been done before, but in a slightly
different manner. In the 1942 tournament held in Chicago, the initial shot was made with the
players assigned ball, then he could choose either ball, making all succeeding points, however,
with that sphere.
This year the player may select either ball on the first shot of his inning, continuing to use the
same ball for the following shots in that frame.
