Add lo that the way the .Chicle .forward wall rushed the Pirate passers and you have a pretty good view of the bright side of the picture. UiiL undoubtedly Pine Bhill scouts again picked put 'several flaws iii the.

NEW YORK, Sept. 23 Tlie real tipoil on how hard Joe Louis hit Bob Pastor Is lo be fcimd In th'e public utterances now being mnde by the challenger, even after three dnys of ice packs, smell- Ing salts, and loving care by his wife and relatives. ..-His gray cells apparently still are bouncing about like confetti in j brocije and have yet to settle 'down in their customary 'places, because lie Is demanding iinothei fight with tlie champion. Not onlj Is Pastor demanding-another and third meeting with' his- private enemy No. 1 but he Is Justifying it on the grounds that-II would be a rubber match. "I still say I- won that first fight," he tells reporters. "Tha makes It one for me and one foi him. The next one will be the clincher and I'll win 11." Of course lib didn't win the first one, any more than ho did the om In Dctroil Wednesday night. Hi simply survived in the first meeting by running like n deer In n glade In Detroit he chose to move forward instead of backward and till. Smite taadlSTo? air inure? f.^. f «* « courageous one leg, scored one touchdown, a 43-! lc «' Urn slumped over the canvas of his head and out of the fight. What does Pastor figure t-o wli with In n third meeting? He has fiie" final "touchdown/of 'tiuTgame exhausted nil means of defense and after a penalty had nullified cm Ws °<ft"sc is n- trifling thing that almost identical run he had made, cannot possibly cause , Louis any McMillan was the principal of- trouble. Bob hit Louis with his yard sprint, while Cramer made one on an Intercepted pass, run- nine about 2T yards to score and stepped 1C yards for fensive threat of the visitors. He was hard put. especially In the latter stages of Uie game, to hurl his passes in the face of charging linemen but he was vainly trying to touch off the scoring spark for the visitors all night. His principal aid In the backfield came from Burklow. 'Early in the game the visitors displayed an aggressive defense and tackled unusually well for an early season game. As the eame wore on the Chick blockers began to take their toll and tiring Pirates faded. The Incessant, unrelenting drive of the ChickasaWs became almost unstoppable lats in the game. Regardless Of the combination Co.ich DiWy used, first string or reserves, •with both seeing plenty of action, or a mixture of the two, Chick backs slashed and spun and ripped. Once a penalty pushed the Chicks back to their own one yard line and they marched for a score without losing possession of the ball with 'Harbert and Lloyd pointing the advance and Lloyd climaxing it with a 32-yard touchdown romp. Again the Chicks opened up from around their 25- yard line and moved across the pay-off line with Blackwood scoring. The Chickasaws scored on Illegal Decoys Arc Check- eel by Alteration U) Passing Rules liy HARRY OUAVSOM KEA fleivlce Spoil* Jldilor The mcst Important, collegiate football rule change this fall should open tiie way to more shovel pusses behind tlie line of scrimmage, witlj nn end or wiiijtinck coining lu-cund to take a. short forward flip from the tailback. Another alteration places a further check on the imscrapiiJoii.i. The first diiuigc provider tlmt the penally for a forward pass striking nn Ineligible man is 15 yards and the loss of a d'.wn. Formerly • the penalty wn.s the loss of the bill) nl the point where the bnll struck the ineligible man. If a forward pass went niitray and .lie ball hit n guard or tackle in 'rout ol th6 intended receiver, the defensive team got the ball. Now the passing team simply oses 15 yards nud a down, which s bad enough, 1 but "they still ctm't score while we've got the ball." On n play from which a forward pass develops, ineligible nen nre prohibited frcm advnnc- ng beyond the line of .icrlirirhage before the puss is made. Previously, ceivcr could nu Ineligible pass:- the .Hue scrimmage, -.but v>as supposed to ;ecp out of the v.onc Into which the pass was to be thrown, and n't allowed to gel ahead. of the bnll. ' .' • • - . There wns nothing to prevent ,he use of linemen as decoys. SIMPLIFIES PASS DEFENSF And seme tennis even chanced drawing a 'penalty by sending a lineman Into the xouc of the pass nnd then off on tangent, trying to pick up a defender on the way. As Elmer Laydcn of Notre Dame points cut, this new rule simplifies pass defense to some degree and makes the game fnlrer. The penalty is loss of 15 yards from the spot of the preceding down, the play to ccunt ns a down. The first o[ four rule changes provides that the referee must check the ball lo be used . . . Its weight, ail- pressure nnd measurements . at least 30 minutes before the game. Thus the" squad with a superlative pnsscr won't be able to ring in a bull that is slightly narrower and thus easier to grip and lhro« than the one provided for by the rules. - - The strong defensive team can't supply a ball a little fatter than regulation lo fit Its star punter': foot: •• The fctirlh and last change is a safely measure nailing for an increase In the thickness of knee pads and requiring padding, new specifications for the shai» and size of conical cleats oml makes head protectors mandatory. To the spectator this moans no more lions, Dick Nesbltt. 1 !, Jack Ciin- Rcd Woodworms and Bill Sundny-go-tc-mceting punch in the eighth round and it didn't even slow up the champion. Pastor Isn't the first- Louis victim o speak through his bandages like [\n Egyptian mummy come to life and ask for another dose of the colored bty's fists. Schmellng did t, Galcnto did It. and so did half dozen others. Why do the boys ict this way? My theory is (hat he hits them EO hard they feel no pain and have no recollection of being badly punished. Pastor Indicated that this Bcvans flashing about the field with locks flying in the breeze. To players, parents and coaches, It : means that one mere hazard has been removed. Football fatalities and serious injuries have decreased steadily In the last several years but of the 17 fatalities of 1938. eight resulted from skull fractures. * . * » COACHES WOULD Sl'EKD tll> GAME The tendency Is to siwcd up the game. In response to a nation-wide poll, Slip Madigan of Stiint Mary's ol California suggested thnt no timeouts be taken for substitutes except in the case of an Injured player; Under rule change penalty for forward pass striking ineligible (1) is 15 yards and lass of dov.'n. Formerly the penalty was loss of bnll at point where It struck oilensivo guard or tackle, ineligiwe players are prohibited from advancing beyond line of scrimmage He- fore pass Is made, which prevents use of Utiemvui (2) as illegal dtcoy. HILL MEET TEU5 1 CHIP Nashville. Wins R ii b b e Game Of Play-Off Series From Atlanta NASHVILLE, Term.. Sepl. 23. (UP)—Larry' Gilbert's Nashville Vols, whose second-half spurt featured the 1939 Southern Association, race, headed for Tcxns today as Ih'o league's representative Ihc annual Dixie series. The Vols played more steadily when the chips were ilown to etc feat the fourth-place Atlanta Crackers, ^ lo 6, last night in tlie decisive game of the Shaughness/ play-offs.

Four Atlanta errors paved the way for Nashville's Ijol off lo a two-run start In the second on Burge's homer. But Nashville eame back i\ltli one in the third and Uvo in the fourth, Atlanta errors playing a- big part in the scoring. The Vols mid Crackers rocked along, with both teams picking up runs singly, until.-the ninth, when Nnshvllle led fi to 4. The Crackers rallied desperately to tic the score, with hits by Sperry.
