The Barr.ns did not do .so well at New Orleans last night. Pel third siicker Charlie Cileock socked a tenth-inning double lo bring home ihe winning margin for New Orleans. 3 and 2. Ralic Barna banged out a single In the bottom of the ninth to i bring in the tying run as the Vols | battled the Memphis Chicks to a 13-3 tie. The game was called at the I end of the ninth lo allow both clubs to catch their trains. The Mobile Bcar.s blanked the Atlanta Crackers. 3 to 0. for a clean sweep of their- four-game xcries. The loss was trie .sixth for the crackers. The Chattanooga lookouts and the Little Rock Travelers were not scheduled. Better take a rule book along when you attend high school football names this fall. You'll need one i( you want lo keep up with ihe guings- on. This new high school code may be just Hie lliing as officials claim, bul It'll make a came harder lo understand than a woman's intuition. The National Federation of High Schools' rules tends to throw Ihe game wide open and speed u[i play considerably bul there's a lot of confusing differences between it and the National Inier-Collegiale cocte which prevailed last year. • for Instance: an officials red handkerchief (or flag, which Ihcy prefer! which used lo indicate a rule infraction, can mean a number of things this year. II can be ihe signal for a penalty as in Ihe past, the spot where the ball was killed or the "basic enforcement spot." Ihe spot where a p]a> ended. This, according lo Diikie Speck, is done, so that in the event a rule infraction on miming plays occurs immediately before or after Ihe play ends, the penalty can be stepped off from the point where the play ended. In other words, all penalties will not necessarily result in bringing the ball back to the line of .scrimmage, therefore killing the play ami voiding any Ram or loss, even if the penalty is to be against Ihe offensive team. If Ihc rule infraction occurs in front of the line of scrimmage by either an offensive or defensive player, the penally is slepped oil from the point where Ihe play ends, not from the original line of scrimmage or the point of Infraction, as in llir past. The one exception lo Ibis rule is when Ihe rule infraction Is by an oflensivc player behind the original line of scrimmage, then the gain '"' loss ' s nullified, and the penalty is stepped off from Ihc point ol infraction. No Re-Kicks on Kick-Offs On loose ball plays, forward or lateral passes or pums, etc., the penalty is stepped ofl from original line of scrimmage, so says the rule. The same exception as on a running play applies on loose ball plays. Tims, il is possible that turn, five or even n do/.en handkerchiefs can hit the ground and still no penally Should a runner gain five yards, fumble and lose two. regain control of the ball, gain five more, fumble and lose two more before the ball is killed, then a handkerchief will go clown at the point of the first fumble to designate a new "basic enforcement spot." or the spot where he losl control of the ball; ono at the spot where he regained control of the ball: another at Ihe spol where lie fumbled again, etc.. lo designate the points from where penalties will be stepped off if there was an infraction between the lime that he first fumbled and the lime the ball was killed If the infraction should occur between Ihe time he first fumbled and Ihe time he first regained control, the penally would lie stepped off from the spol where he first fumbled because lhal was the spot where he lasl controlled the ball before lire foul was commuted.

(AP)— Base!3 chrles were divided today in their opiiilons on whether the New York V?nkees had made a wbe move in their investment of n bundle of cash for first baseman Johnny Mize. The ex-New York Giants star first baseman joined the Yankees hire vcMcrdi'.v and showed some of his Connor tremendous hitting power In his firs! appearance in battlns practice Ho drove two halls into the Biisgs Stadium stand?, before retiring to the bench where he spent the nft.'inoon. Manager Red Rolfe of the Timers war. an<onf those who 'hought Mize would help the New Yorkers a lot in the'r pennant drive. "Generally it isn't until a player has been around th" circuit twice that the pitrher; can pick out any hittins weakness he may have and a lot of them are not too familiar with Mize's abilities." he said. Yankee Manager Casey Stengel. -iltno'i"h himpy to «et The adrii'ion- •il bntlM'<! i»wer offered by Mi// 1 . was conoptned over two other prob- Icns— one was the shoulder injury 'h.-t sinVlinerl Joe DiMaKRio in the opener of the Tiger series ye-ster- dsv— ili» nlhcr was the sharp m- ciT^se iii the number of passes 3i\vn im b\ his pitchers. "Our piirliei-s are walking too mtny n-en and a tot of those walks !']•'' being lui'ned into runs," wailed Ca.sey. SKY Safety Through a Penalty Under the National Federation code an automatic safety mav be given by virtue of a penalty. Under the "basic spol" rule should an offensive player foul in his own end ?/me when the line of scrimmage is inside his own five or 10-yard line, the infraction would have occurred back, of Ihc line ol scrimmage and must be stepped off from the point of infraction. And should the penally be for 15 yards, carryiiv the end zone, an aulomntfc safely would be ruled. However, an enforcement from outside Ihc offender's one vard line would leave the ball inside that line, the penalty terminating at "the one- yard line. If the enforcement is from on or inside the one-yard line the penally will be half the distance to the goal line, as in lire past On kickoils, (the Fcderalion rules prefer the term "free kick") any kick that goes out of bounds between the goal lines shall nol be kicked over, but instead the receiving team shall put the ball in plav 10 yards behind Its restraining or free kick line (in play at the 30> unless the bafl goes out of bounds between the two 40-yard Irestrainins > lines In this event Ihc ball shall be pu* inlo play by the receiving team miimsitc the point where it went out of bounds. Kicks out of the end ro>t ; malic touchbacks as in the past. Bill Kell. newly-appointed coach of Keiser Hi?!! School, has announced a nine-game schedule for his 1049 Yellow Jacket grid team.
