KATI.IFK DALLAS, Aug. 8. [/Tj—Matty Bell, who coached when a fellow was ucky to have a half-down substitutes and In the era of the two-platoon system, says you can't legislate the latter out of the rules. Moreover, the athletic director of*~™i~ Southern Methodist, who on)y Inst year gave np coaching, asks why anybody would get rid of the tiling that has made football the great game it is today. Noting that General Hob Neyland, coach ot Tennessee, advocates etim I nation of the free substitution rule in order to kill the two-platoon system, Bell commented that Ncylancl, who becomes a member ot the National Rules Committee this year, wilt have a hard time getting his idea across. Bell, already a member of the committee,' said he Isn't concerned about the two-pi a toon system but is apprehensive about financial aspects of college football. "Only three members of the Southwest Conference made money out of football last season," he said. "My suggestion Is that we Dierks, a consolidated school in Howard County, for years has been a gridiron power among the small- schools of southwest Arkansas. Coach >losley stated that the Dierks coach, called about the Oct. 12 open date last week. "He wanted to come up here so I took him up," he said. With the filling of the Oct. 12 date the Chicks now have but three open dates on their schedule, Oct. 26, Nov. 16 and Nov. 23. However, Coach Mosley plans to leave the Oct. 26 date open. Seven Home Games The Dierks game gives the Chicks seven home games with only one, Jackson, Tenn., on the road. Coach Mosley is still dickering with Newport officials to fill the Chicks' Nov. 16 open date and the possibilities are good that a game with the Greyhounds will be arranged. The Chicks will open their 15)51 filale against Marked Tree here Sept. 14.
