And next year there should be. even more That is provided the National Federation of High Schools' rules code, adopted by learns of (lie slate this fall, survive* past its first year test Tiip NFHS todc, in our opinion, is designed in more ways than one to aid ihe fast moving bill clubs. H opens up the game, makes play faster and the penally changes under the system lean toward offensive play. But there is one difference between Ihe Federation code mid the NCAA's, that is a definite aid to T-formation teams. That's the rule Iliat says, in effect, "Any player that is in legal position and not. on the line, is eligible to receive a pass." ,h, '" otlu! ' »™- cis ' » T quarterback can now catch passes as well as throw tiiem. Ihe only requirement is that he remain at all times until the play stalls, in a position for a hand-to-hand snap and he must of course, be In the unckneld.

It was Benton's win on relief, the .second Important victory for the Detroit disrard In three days. He stopped the Yankees Friday night and helped himself to his sixth triumph on one scoreless inning. Detroit, trying desperalely to make II « four-team battle, won its eighth straight by deafealing Philadelphia, 4-3. in 10 innings. Pat. Mulliii's single broke up the ball game, giving reliefer Hal White his first decision. The fourth-place Timers now are only eight games off the pace. Dick Kokos singled with Ihe bases loaded in the ninth (or the St. Louis Browns' 2-1 edge over Washington In their battle to stay out of the cellar. Cliff Famiiti was the winnei over Mickey Harris.

Under Col!e B me rules, such touching drew a penalty against the offending team. And still another is the one that protects the inier after lie'has relieved himself of the ball. Under the Federation ruTe? a passer must be avoided after the ball has been ihrown as he is considered out of the play. The penalty for such will be Ihe same as roughin" he .o-« j punter.
