No Kick Here In Case He Gets Bumped Stan Pincurn, former Ohio State star, quarterback for inc. professional Cleveland Rams, shows you the many trappings worn under u football player's uniform. Point Conversion After a Blocked Kick Creates a Rule Controversy Only a Few Coaches Believe That the Play Should Be Concluded When the Kick for Extra Point Is Blocked By IIAIWY GRAYSON Sixirts Editor, NKA Service CHICAGO.—"Block thai kick! Block that kick!" they shouted from the Ohio Stadium stands. Nick Cullich of Northwestern did, and it was what transpired after his performance in the Ohio State game in Columbus that has prompted .some coaches lr> suggest n rule change. Not n few character builders believe that the play should be concluded the minute a kick for the extra point after touchdown is blocked. Some of these and others ask why, if the offensive team can run with the ball under such circumstances, why not the defensive team? When the Buckeyes' place-kick for the extra point after touchdown was broken up by (he Wildcats' tackle, Mike Kabealo recovered and Interfiled to Jim McDonald, who loped to and across the goal line. "Tho spirit of the rules and good sportsmanship is violated when n team is awarded the extra point in a situation of that kind,' 'asserts Dr. Clarence W. Spears, now at the University of Toledo jifter tutoring here, there, and . ./practically everywhere in the more than a score of years that have- elapsed since ho played plenty of All-America guard for Dartmouth. "After n touchdown, a team elects to either kick, pass, or run for the extra point. "Ohio State elected to make tlr, point by place-kicking. My idea of it is that Northewcslern had done all that could be asked on that particular play. It had spoiled Ohio State's kicking bid. in my opinion, the play should have ended the minute that ball was blocked. I "If the offensive team can profit by such a play a.s this, why not the defensive team? If Ohio State could start anew after the kick was blocked and score a point from the two-yard line, it seems to me that the other team should be able to profit, too. "Going farther, let's assume that a Northwestern man had picked up the loose ball, nnd just for the exercise, galloped the length of the field. Isn't it just as logical that Northwestern should got, say, two or three points?" But the intercollegiate rule book, on Page 40, Rule 9, Section 3, Article 1. say.s: "If the kick (for extra point) fails to score a goal the ball becomes dead except as provided in Rule 7, Section G, Article 2," which reads: "A ball kicked from scrimmage, which for any reason does not cross the line of scrimmage, may be recovered and advanced by any player." So it will pay coaches to remind their athletes to get to the ball first after wrecking an attempt to convert and to fall and bang onto it until it is declared deader than a door-nail by Teachers Point to Championship Will Meet Strong Texas Team at North Little Rock Thursday LITTLE ROCK, Ark.—</P)—The Arkansas Slate Teachers College Bears, stale championship bound again, will display their wares in North Little Rock Thursday night against Howard Payne College, champions of the Texas conference seven times in the past 10 years. The Tcxans come to Arkansas with ii record of only three conference losses in those 10 years but the Jackets will find plenty of trouble awaiting them in Coach Warren Woodson's Bears. The Teachers, who slapped a 13 to 9 defeat on Arkansas Tech last week to virtually cinch their second successive championship, boast a versatile offense and strong defense. Like all Woodson's teams, they may be depended upon to come up with some tricky play good for six points when they are needed most. Tech, its hopes for a title blasted, has a breather this week against Arkansas A. and M. at Monticcllo. Hcn- drix plays Arkansas Stale at Conwny.

Duck Regulation Increase Flights;3O-DaySeason SPTS-Duck regulations ART Ducks are coming back with ,-i bang Reports from the northern division of O.e United States, where hunting ol- rciidy is under way. indicate that there arc more fathered folk for hunters to l.laze away at Uinn there have been for years. This makes the U. S. Department of Agriculture and Biological Survey mighty happy. The increase vindicates its methods of conservation which have been in effect for two years nnd which were considered drastic by many hunters when introduced. The 30-day open season for each of the throe sections of ihe country, the duck stamp tax which bus been used for development of breeding grounds nnd other propagating methods, the limiting of repeating shotguns to three .shells, and the ban on 'certain species of waterfowl already show appreciable results in the southern flight.

HARRY PHIPPS By JERRY BRONDFIELD NEA Service Snorts Writer So the 225-pound right tackle made a wry face, held his nose, and gluped down a tin cup of sauerkraut juice nnd 15 minutes later, instead of letting that opposing end ride him all over the field, he flattened three blokes in the mud, blocked two kicks, and recovered the fumble that led to the winning touchdown. It's n smart dietitian who knows his punts and passes. No\y you'll know it wasn't because that bug-eyed student manager told you there weren't enough chairs to go around, that you couldn't get into the locker room between halves. Tt was merely because some of our better known coaches got hep to some new-fangled ideas and didn't want their sanity questioned while putting them in operation. This is the day of vitalizing vitamins, of callories and carbohydrates. It takes more than a good rubdown and a hot steam pack to get your prize halfback ready for that second half. Your modern football player has to be fed between halves. Maybe he doesn't get table d'hote service- nor does an elegant blond wait on him, but he gets fed nonetheless. When Stub Allison brings his California Bears into the dressing room for the rest period each of his darlings gets three lumps of sugar in a glass of water. And the intention isn't to sweeten the Bears' dispositions. There's something about sugar, if taken in the proper quantity and at the right time, that enables your blocking back to smack down three enemies instead of two.

And a goodly number of coaches, including Dr. Jock Sutherland of Pittsburgh, believe that a team blocking the kick has been sufficently rewarded.
