With the Lions throwing up • tight defense, the Chicks had some trouble finding the net* during part of the game, and were held IQ one of Ihelr lowest scores of the year In defeating Leachville for the third time this season. The Mst-breaking Chicks, who usually get 90 lo 100 tries from the floor, were held lo only 54 field goal • attempts by the bull-control system set up by Letchvllle. The Chicks' percentage also dropped from other recent efforts and they were able to count on inly 31 per cent of their shots.

"But don't forget you al- had a highly specialized defensive corps on hand to stop him." Under the new rule, a player may not re-onter the game during the same period in wnirfi he left except In the lust lour minutes of the second and fourth quarters. "That will te,-,d io keep players In the game longer. And though they may tire more than their two-platoon cinmteiparUs, who rested when the other, team had the ball, the defense will tend to .-tire, too," said Crisler. "It's relative." Crisler pointed out that while most rule changes are purely technical, this one involves the administration of college athletics, recruiting and even the philosophy of the game: I — "Economically, expenses will drop 'with the size of Ihe squad, new rule. You wont need as many which will be smaller under the players. • 2 — "As for recruiting, the game's biggest evil. that, will NOT change In intensity but it will in numbers, as the teach now needs a few all- around players rather than a large number of specialists. < 3 •—. "Philosophically, Ihe rule challenges the specialization Idea. In a game, it may not be good to specialize. It may be better for the boys ,to learn all .phases of the game. { o " Help Young Coachei Crisler said it would ."certainly Improve the caliber of young coaches being turned out by the colleges and universities'. A challenge In coaching oullook was also predicted by Crisler. "Where a coach has been sizing up his squad on the grounds of his best offensive and best defensive players, he will now consider his best eleven men, then his 'second best eleven." he said. He said he was unable lo predict Ihe size of fulu're college squads because of (he fact that the coaches don't determine the size of the squad at Michigan. That's set fay the number of boys who turn out. ISfcippers Speak— >ung Hurlers Cards' Hope EDDIE STANKT St.' Louis Cardinal! Mana about the Phillies' ng. r don't have a rls or a Curt Simmons the finest collection of pitchers ever assembled on b. lot claiming the pennant, ."ou. I'm Just saying my kids Teat, and if they click—then out! h" case you've forgotten, my >ny pitchers''names are Vinegar '2nd Mizell, stu Miller, Harvey Haddlx, Joe Preskb and Cloyd Boyer. In addition we have Gerry Slaiey and Cliff Chambers. And don't forget our bullpen—Just -the best In baseball. Eddie Yuhas and Al Brazle won 24 and lost seven In 1053. They saved about 20 olher games for us. Those two Just about saved us last year. We have our share of rookies Ray Jablonskl, a third baseman, had R very Impressive record at Rochester list year. He hit close of them- That includes the Giant.,, Dodger., and Phillies to .300 and baited in ,^ ,,,„,, There Is some question about his fielding. We'll see about that In St Petersburg late this month. He'll be battling It out with Billy Johnson. Sieve Bilko Is back and this time he may win the first base assignment. They tell me he was rea'lly belling that ball last year. We shall see at St. Pele. We also have a fine defensive shortstop In Wally Lammcrs. They say Roy McMillan of Cincinnati Is his only superior with the glove In our league. I'm anxious lo gel a look at Rip Hepulskl, a young outfielder who they say can go and get 'em. He's not bad with the stlclr, either. It he can make it my outfield Is set. Old Counlry Slaughter says he will play MO to 150 games and who am I to argue with him? Nobody believed him last year but you know what he did for us. He was Just about the most valuable man on the club. Nobody Is going to shove or Enos out of there If he can help It. Hal Rice did a fine Job for us last year. And there's always Slan Ihe Man. What can I say about Slan that hasn't already been said before? He's Just the best there Is, [hat's all. We could use » catcher Io spell Del Rice once In caught nearly every while. game Del last as year and in my book, was the best receiver In the league. I'm going to lake a good Jong look at Dick Rand f who has been going great guns tn the Cuban Winter League. I've got no worries as far as my double play combination Is concerned. Red Schoendlensl Is the best second baseman In baseball Solly Hemus, otherwise known as The Mighty Mouse, was the most Improved player In the league last season. He should be even better this year. 'But in terms of letters awarded," he said, "it's about 38-40 under the new system compared lo 42-45 un- Kalling the new rule as "in the best long-range interests of college football," Crisler predicted it would shift such specialists as the point- ifter kicker, tile punter and other ne-phase men, to the smaller school? where they would play all phases of the game." "The so-called blue chip player will still be the key man," he said. "But the new rule will make him a man again instead.of half a. man as he -was under, the two-plaloon system." "As a group, the strong school won't be hurt by the rule. But the smaller outfit will be In a belter position with respect lo the strong outfit." Used First Crisler, who /irst used the two- platoon system In 1945 against a powerful- Army team, said the system in 1941 was voted in because of Ihe deplellon of mnapower due to the war. "The Wea first came to me when we had to face Army with a* bunch of freshmen. I knew they couldn't stand up against the cadets so I made two platoons lo take, advanl-- nge of the unlimited . substitution" •allowed them. We used eight men in each platoon, comprising the linemen and the line-backers." , "With three men playing both ways, we started the third quarter with a 7-7 tie," recalled Crisler. "We lost .28-7. But" the system worked- jo well we began splitting 11 men. Anrl the following year, olher coaches began using the two- platoon system. In 19«. it was universal. ' Crisler said he looked forward to seeing the game played under.the new.rule In 1D53. "r thmk the fans will. get ac- qunlnled with the personnel quicker and appreciate not having so many to keep track of," he said.
