Eager to cooperate with the duectors' rs- sociation, PIAA Executive Secretary Edmund Wiehte made every effort to determine if the game had been made too last and to provide coriec- tive measu-es, if necessary Wicht informed Preston O Van Ness, Harrisburg, school directors' association secietaiy, that in accordance with the organization's request, the PIAA board of control submitted a resolution to the National Basketball Rules Committee o£ the United States and Canada which iias authority to charge rules under which State schools play. The commttee agreed to permit basketball leagues and confeiences m the Commonwealth to experiment, although the "practice is inconsistent with some phases of the rules," to find out if the game, minus the center ]Ump, was too fast for health o£ participants. "We were pleased with the National Basketball Rules Committee's action," Wicht told the school directors, "because it permits school leagues to experiment not only with the center tip off rule after field goals, but with any other particular feature or innovation as it affects the present rules " Member schools weie asked for opm'ons, suggestions and ideas fo experimental games Cageis everywhere appeared able to play through four fast periods without appi enable strain Apparently assuming no remedy was necessary, coaches and faculty athletic directors dropped proposed experimentation plans When the center leap was eliminated, the rules required the referee to handle the ball after a field goal was scored That gesture gives contestants a brief "breathing spell," it was pointed oat Introduced this season as an added precaution against burning out bas- keteers were two compulsory timeouts, bringing to 12 tne lotal r umber of possible minute rest periods 1C neither team calls a time-out in the first period, the referee must stop the game four minutes after ttys second period and chaige the time-out to himself A similar time-out is called in the last quarter of the contest.
