Similarly. Honey rtusscll, coach of undefeated Seton Hall, top-ranking team In 'the country, vas the only coach who thought tile •uies have cut down fouling. The coaches were asked how the new rules had affected their team's style of play, the number >f personal fouls called and the number of points scored. "The rules help the team with the ball," Russell said. "They help the kids In the personal foul column and nlso fn (ho scoring col- mm." Loeffler, who guided La Salle to the Niillonal Inviiatlon Tournament championship last year, said his tcnm Is "collecting less pc;vts from Ihe foul line than before the new rule." "Today a player figures if he misses (he first foul attempt he'll rnnke 11 oh (he second," Loeffler iald. "But actually when a player Is careless In shooting the first time it makes liim more careless the second time," Russell also praised the rule awarding two free throws for all personal fouls committed In the final three minutes. "Defensive teams can't foul indiscriminately." he commented. "Now a team that's losing in Ihe three minutes has to use skilled defensive players instead of hatchetimsn." Hank Iha of elf-hlli-ranked Oklahoma A&M. like Russell n defense- inindcd coach, csmmenled that the rule "amounts to n 10-polnl advantage for the offense. Tippy Dye, coach of Uiird- nnkcd Washington, and Jack Gardner of Kansas Slate, No. 5, said Umt fouls actually had increased under the new rules instead of decreasing. Dye said his team's fouls Increased from 14 per game to J8, while Gardner Raid Kansas Slate's average jumped from 19Ji lo 20. Ed Diddle, coach of ninth-ranked Western Kentucky, agreed with Loeffler about foul shooting, saying the rules "place a premium on mediocrity and have developed a sort of carelessness." Ho suggested a change, 'even though • the rules have helped his learn because "we don't have a good free throw team ond moke more second shots than first." Ray Meyer of DC Haul, No. 10, nlso said he "could do without" the qnfrjind-oiiD rule. 'I still-think when a boy goes up to the line It's his Job to make the free throw the first time," he added. Branch McCracken, whose Indiana team is rated second In the nation and leads the Big Ten race with an 8-0 murk, ngrqed the rule wns unsatisfactory. Coach Harry Combes of sixth- ranked Illinois said, "The poor free threw, team hris been given n big advantage."

' The relinquishing of Robinson, •12-ycnr-old power s'.vliigcr, who butted .280 last season, was viewed with some misgiving among White Sox fans who have thought all along that Lnne was shopping for another long-ball hitler.
