THURSDAY, .IANUAHY 13, 103S. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVILLE, PA. PAGE NINE. Basketball Basketball Sportoriafs By JOHN 11. TVHOB1C- Sports Editor TWO SCHOLASTIC FOOTBALL JtULES REVISED Only two changes have been made in the football rules by the National Federation of Interscholcstic Athletic Association which governs the high school game in 21 states, including Pcnrsylvania. The rules the group authorized: 1. The penalty for a foul committed during a hick sllall be loss of distance only instead of loss o£ ball qt point of the foul. 2. That the penalty for an illegal shift shall be flye yards instead of 15. The two recommendations that had been offered to open up the forward passing portion of the grid sport were delcatcd by narrow margins. One proposal would permit any number of forward passes during a down, provided they were made from behind the line, and the other would have allowed an eligible player of a team in possession of the ball to complete a pass previously touched but not caught by an eligible teammate. The association tabled suggestions that the goal posts be moved up to the goal line instead of being kept 10 yards back of it (hoping that field goals and points niter touchdown would be- increased and that a field goal be allowed when the ball passes between the uprights but under the cross-bar. Too many changes in the past have made it difficult for the average fan to keep abreast of the game and there will be a general feeling of satisfaction the coaches, players and spectators will not have to go through another session of learning a lot of new regulations so they can play a'nd · ' understand the game. However, those who are elosc to the sport should always be on the alert to make it better lor the boys and the fans. Pennsylvania Inlerschoiastic Athletic Association should inaugurate a movement to have a uniform set of rules for high school basketball players and not be required to use those of the colleges. The grid game has.retained its popularity under the change and the cage sport would be enhanced if a similar attitude was adopted toward it. MORE NIGHT FOOTBALL Scholastic night football continues to grow all around at schedule fixers endeavor to make the sport more profitable by accommodating those potential fans who work on Saturdays. Connellsville is the latest to decide tn night games and Uniontown is seriously considering It. Others probably would go for it but don't have the cash, to install the expensive system (it isn't much good unless it's the best). Most townships seem to be immune to it because they play on Fridays so that students can attend right after dismissal of classes. In many instances night football has turned out to be a paying proposition--the team has a fair record and the weather has been good. But the real test of the floodlight performance will come when a school has an oft season and the weather is unbalanced. One thing is certain that there are hundreds of fans in Conneilsvillc and environs who will go to a football game on a Saturday afternoon even in a snowstorm or deluge of rain bul who wouldn't even walk outdoors at night in such weather.
