AFL Ups Player Limits;: To Seek TvYp-Point Play DETROIT (AP) - A move to increase the playing roster from 38 to 40 has been the only major decision reached by .the American Football League owners in their summer meeting. A morning session was scheduled today but little was expected to be accomplished, outside of continued discussion on the recent merger with the National Football League. 'We had to increase the number of players on each team to keep in line with what's done in the NFL," Boston Patriots owner Bill Sullivan explained. 'We don't like the thought of meeting them in a championship game with fewer players." Sullivan indicated that the AFL owners are prepared to present strong cases for their side in various differences between the two leagues. The two-point conversion option and making the Scoreboard clock official were two rules mentioned. "I don't know why the NFL doesn't go with the two point option," Sullivan said. "Wq think it makes for a more interesting game." * * * Besides the decision to increase the rosters, the AFL owners also indicated a learning toward expansion in 1968 and a warm-weather city or cities as the site of the title game with the NFL. Cities mentioned in the expansion discussion were Anaheim, Calif., Cincinnati. New Orleans and Seattle. Commissioner Al Davit ex. plained that under peculiar wording in the AFL-NFL merger agreement the AFL'-could name a city but the NFL would expand first. 'We'll decide what city to pick as soon as we settle it it our minds. We intend to name the city and protect the territory until we expand in 1968," Da. vis said. iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiniiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiBiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiii By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW ORLEAN, La.-Curtij Cokes, 146, Dallas, stopped Luis Rodriguez, 146, Miami Fla. 15. 6*1 a Good Buy en Tim* DiKontimwd Trad-Design All-Weather "42" Tim AH with Tufsyn & 3-T NYLON Tufsyn—toughest rubber ever used in Goodyear Tires.
