Eliminating Center Jump Has an Equalling Eflc'cl "Eliminating lhe tip-off ha., an equalizing effect and does not concede everything to n team with superior height," says Harold G. Olsen, whose Buckeyes plajed four games without a jump in California, during the holidajs. Stanford's transcontinental trip and a jaunt by California Into the southwest meant much in the way of missionary work foi the elimination of tlie tip-off. "The premium is placed on speed and cleverness," asseits Olsen. "The elimination of the j'ump makes for more continuous action, lessens the parade of officials from basket to basket, and tends to expand the scope of llool and decrease dead spots. The tip- off elimination odds approximately five or si\ minutes of actual playing time to each game. "It practically does away with freezing of the ball by a team with a slender advantage late in .1 contest,.,as is possible under the present rules. "With the abolishment of the center jump there will still be a place for a big youngster who is clever along with it, for the rebound and. under- the-baskct play still will be important; It Mill though, mean a fadeout on the part of monstrosities who do nothing but .control the center tip." . ; • Basketball coaches and the rules committee have a big game on v (heir hands.
