We're oft again Just when we were beginning to half-way understand high school football agnin aflcr lasl year's rule changes, llic vice-presidents In charge of keeping tilings in n genuine muddle have come at us with more But Iliis time Ihe code modificalions aren'l qulle as confusing as Ihey were . ,. T1 ], e , A i;kansas Alhlelic Association, in a bullclln lo registered football officials of the slate, Ihis week gave a preview of changes made recently by the National Fedcralion of High Schools which will bo in effect'next fall. Most of Iho changes, however, are minor ones but there are one or Iwo that fans will be quick lo nolicc come gridiron time So with the aid of Coach Dukie Speck of Osccola we have Interpreted the' major changes to Ihe best of Dukic's knowledge and will pass same on to you fans. The AAA listed changes in only four major rules, those concerning subst lulions. ovcr-llic-goal-llne kickoiis, forward pass interference and fumbles. So, taking first things first, here goes: The substitution rule will remain basically Ihe same except for one minor change. Tile change makes it legal for a team to substitute when a lime oul has been requested for an injured player. Under 1M9 rules only the .substitute for the Injured player was allowed to enter thc name during the time out. But this, whenever thc clock Is slopped regardless of Ihe reason, any number of substitutes of either team 'mav enter thc game, provided, of course, Ihe changes are made before Ihe ball Is ready for play. The rule concerning kickoffs and punts has been changed to do away with the allowing of a touchdown for kickoffs that are recovered by the kicking team behind the receiving team's goal line. Under the 050 rules, such action is im automalic touchback, the same as on punU that go over Ihe goal line, with the ball put into play on the 20 varcl line Hie change In Ihe pass interference rule allows for an additional I5-ynrd penalty if the pass receiver U Interfered with In an unsportsmanlike way In other words, It Is now possible for a learn lo draw a 30 yard penally for pass interference, 15 yards for interference and Ihen 15 more for un- sporkmanm-e C ° ndUCl " "^ ""^ '"'" ^ ' hC " ltcffere "ce w»s un- The rule pcrlalning to fumbles has been altered lo allow either the offensive or defensive learn lo advance a recovered fumble or even a m red backward pass.
