Mun- articles li; Cuarh I)fan »ill a|p|iiMr from linn lo lime during the season. BY EVKKETT .S. Head Basketball Ouch, Indiana University BLOOMINGTON, linl.- In Ihc basketball rules lor the current season are few but sensible, with tllp direct resul! Hint the two grenler departments of tf.e Bimic— oiTemc and defense—now have- aboul the proper balance for fi sound game. Changes in the code this year "dress up" last year's radical changes. The new rules last year were well received In almost every section of the country. 1 A most important change and one with a direct bearing on the welfare of basketball in high schools- is tbe change In the placing of thi 1 center line under the 10-sccoml rule. Labt yoar this line was drawn through the center of all courts more than GO feel In length. The new rule provides lor division lines which will bo 40 feet from each end line, parallel lo tl'.c cud line. This change, however, affeols only floors under 75 feet In length. The fine thing about this change is that uniform playing conditions have been 'established for the game. This wns not (rue last year, when tlie 10 players were crowded in small offensive Tones, thus causing more bodily contact, rougher ploying nnd necessitating the calling of more tiian the' usual number of .personal fouls. Ti-.c three-second pivot rule of last year has been modified ellght- !y; This will prove a boon lo the official, but handicaps the pivot man. The new pivot rule states that a- player shall not withhold the ball from play for more than three seconds in his free-throw Inuc and circle, and he must get the ball outside the lane within that time or lose possession." Regardless of tlie position of the pivot man in these confines, the rule is the same. • * * The new substitution rule provides that a player may not reenter after leaving the game three tunes. The old rule permitted a player to re-enter the game once, but not twice as tlie 1933-34 rules permit. This change is looked .upon V.'ith favor, as it allows a liberal substitution policy which will-lend to relieve any extra physical hardship on individual players. Another change in [he code necessitates the handling of the ball - on all o-Jl-of-bounds balls in the front court. This ride will curb the "quick pass-in" plays from out'- of-bounds and increases the number ol set plays in the offense. This rate was made to avoid any misunderstanding as to which team had possession of the ball. Last year the oflen.se had 10 seconds In which to advance Hie ball across the center line, and once across the line the ball could not be passed back over the stripe until a shot had been attempted, an out- of-bounds or jump ball play called or a recovery of possession of the ball. Under those conditions, any man on the offense could take the bnll back across the center marker. This year the rule Is essentially the same except that only the man recovering the ball after one ol three above plays occurred en take tre ball to the back eour^ across the line. This action must take place Immediately after til recovery of the ball. This change greatly simplifies the work of the official on this phase of the game. It any player other than the man recovering the ball takes the ball across the line. It Is a violation and the ball goes to the opixising team out-of-bounds tit the nearest spot to the violation.
