MASON U1TY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 16 · 1937 NINE "EVERYTHING SET" FOR JUNE TITLE BOUT OUT of the PRESSBOX By Al Mitchell RULEJIAKERS LEAVE GRID CODE ALONE FOR YEAR Football's rulemakers .. . after a three-day session considering recommendations for changes . . . have decided to leave the playing code virtually untouched for another year. New additions to the rule boolc ... . . decided at the thirty-second a n n u a l meeting o£ the rules committee ol the national collegiate athletic association . . . were: 1. Elimination oC a second kickoff il the first goes out of bounds. 2. Mandatory numbering of player's jerseys in front and back. 3. Clarifications of present rules regarding kicking a free ball, forward pass interference and position of ineligible-receivers on a pass play. c * a The three clarifications were the most important features of the 1937 findings. Because of agitation to place a more liberal interpretation on penalties for forward pass interference because that penalty helped decide the Army-Navy, Yale-Princeton, and other games last year . . . the committee added a supplemental note to the present code designed 1o "clear up misunderstanding as to what constitutes legal interference on a forward pass play." Under the interpretation ... it is believed officials in the future will not hew so close to the line in deciding interference as they have in the past. » : « REPORT SAYS THIS . . . The committee report, announced by Secretary W. S. Langford, has this to say about pass interference: "In order to clear up the misunderstanding on the part of some players and the public as to what constitutes legal interference on a forward pass play, the following was adopted: "During a forward pass play, it must be remembered that defensive players have as much right to the ball as the eligible opponents and bodily contact, however severe, between players who are making a *bona fide' attempt to catch or bat the ball shall not be construed as interference." « o -* The question of kicking a free ball . . . which provoked heated debate after Larry Kelley of Yale helped beat the Navy with what he termed an "accidental kick" o£ ·i fumbled punt . . . was answered with a clarification that makes such action illegal. The following insert was made in the present code: "A free ball lhat strikes or is struck by a portion ot a player's body other than his foot. Ruling: This is not to be considered as kicking a free bali." Thus, even should a player's foot accidentally come into contact with the ball, his side loses possession of it. Contact by other parts of the body is legal, o * * NEW RULE . . . ALMOST-- Tlic third clarification almost developed into a new rule which would require ineligible pass receivers to remain on the line of scrimmage. "The committee found it impossible to more definitely define the limitations put upon players ineligible to receive a forward pass,'" the committee said, "and seriously considered a further restriction to hold these men on the line of scrimmage. "No definite action was taken but in the hope of obtaining beltei control, the following note was adopted: "Unless coaches, assume the responsibility of. keeping ineligible players away from t h a t part of the field to which the forward pass is thrown, it will be necessary to adopt a rule requiring ineligible players to remain on the line ot scrimmage." o * i:= The only outright new rule written into the books was tha regarding an out-of-bounds kickoff. Under old rules . . . if the first kickoff went out, the kickers got another chance. If lhat kick went outside . . . the defenders put the ball in play on their own 40-yard line. Under the new rule, only one kickoff is allowed and if the bal goes out of bounds the receivers take possession on their own 35- yard line or in yards in from the point where it crossed the sidelines . . . i f that point i s furthei goal advanced than their own 35 "This will greatly simplify Ihe rule and the play and also wil lend lo speed up the game," the committee said. Numbering of players in fron and back was adopted after sue! a move w^s suggested by th coaches' association.
