THE MORNING HERALD, HAGKRSTOWN, MARYLAND. TUESDAY, JANUARY 4, 1938. WHATi NO SLEIGH BELLS?—No, no sleigh bells, brothers.. .The gali are biking here and there In St. Petersburg, Fla. Sports MORNING HERALD Section '"- J ''~.-- •-"---•- ~ .- H Two Changes Made In Gridiron Rules OVER THE WAVES—Horace Dodge, wealthy Detroit sportsman, tunes up speedboat Ddphlne IX on Indian Creek, Miami Beach. OFFICIALS FIGURE BOTH WILL AID THE OFFENSE Fourth Down Passes over Goal Line Only Ones Counting a Touchback Edgewater Park, Miss., Jan. 3 (ypj^-The football rules committee of the National Collegiate Athletic • Association announced today two changes in playing regulations, both ot which will aid the offense. For the 1938 season, only fourth down passes back of the goal line •will be ruled as touchbacks. That was the most drastic alteration. The other change applies to a ball going out of bounds between the goal lines. It will be put in play 15 yards from the side line instead of 10 as heretofore. Announcement of the changes "William S. Langford, . of New York City, secretary the committee. of "Hereafter," said the statement, "any forward pass (excepting those made on fourth down) which becomes incomplete behind the goal line, will be treated as though it struck the ground in the Held of play. Help For Offense "An incomplete forward pass behind the goal line on fourth down, will as now result in a touch back. "This change, it is believed, wil be of material assistance to the offense on goal line plays, as i will enable the Held general t< employ his full repertoire of attac] at all times." The rules committee of the American Football Coaches Associ ation had recommended the changi in placing the hall 15 yards in from of the side line. . In its announcement of thif change, the rules committee said "This change applies when thi ball goos out of bounds between the goal lines, or becomes dea( within 15 yards of the side line, ii which case it shall be put in play at a spot 15 yards from that side line, instead of 10 yards as here tofore." "The development of passing both forward and lateral, has made more leeway desirable, and as ii is not practicable to widen the field of play, the committee took this means of providing more el bow room. This will also aid the offense on short-side plays when near the sideline." Guardsmen Face Two Hard Games Tonight the Company B baskel eers will travel to Mercersburg, Pa to take on the Mercersburg Ma roohs , one of the best indepenen quints in that section. The Guards men have been showing markei" improvement in their piay and ar apt to spring a 1 surprise on the Ma roons, Which team just recently dropped a hard fought battle to the Manbeck Bakers of this city. Coach Dudley is expected to have his strongest lineup on hand foi ' the game tonight and Pennsy fans will see a mighty clever bunch of cagemen when the Guardsmen start the battle. On Weddnesday night on the Ar- nipry floor the Guardsmen will clash, in a preliminary game to the Markets contest, with the Waynesboro Y five. This game has all the earmarks of being a natural as the visitors always are represented by a strong aggregation. ; FIREMEN'S LEAGUE TO ELECT OFFICERS A meeting o£ the Firemen's Softball League has been called for this Sunday at the Pioneer Hook and Ladder 2 o'clock for the purpose of electing officers for the coming season.
