Cosicfies Vof e Wongs? v' 2-P foon Football Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Jan. 17 (AP) College football was returned today to an honest, two-platoon eystem that will eliminate the freakish innovation of last season the deliberate, stop-the-clock foul. After three days of debate, the football rules committee of the NCAA adopted a substitution rule that will permit platooning after the ball changes hands, between periods and after anv score. TWO SUBSTITUTES may enter the game at any time under the new rule which comes very close to restoring the free and unlimited substitution in effect prior to 1953. Jack Curtice, chairman of the American Football Coaches Rules Committee, said the vote was "as close as pressed ham" between the rule that passed and another proposal to remove all bars to free substitution. "I believe I can speak for coaches in general in saying that the rule adopted is a fine one," Curtice said. "The only restriction on pla-tooning is that you can't get in a kicking team on fourth down. Our offensive will have to go down under punts. But this might give us even better punt coverage because we've got more speed on our offensive teams." Curtice said most coaches thought last year's rule was pretty good, except for the disgraceful gimmicks they were j forced to use to get in defensive j platoons on fourth down. THAT RULE allowed platoon der a time out, most teams took five-yard penalties for delay, off sides or some other infractions to switch units before punting. Except for this, committee chairman Ivy Williamson said the record attendance at college games last year attested to the popularity of the rule. Attendance rose to 23,354,477, a 5 gain over '63 and the greatest rise ever recorded in a year. . THE COMMITTEE did less -tinkering with football rules than at any time since '53, when two-platoon football was outlawed in a revolutionary move. But the substitution debate was controversial enough to keep the members in session three days and took up 90 ol their time. The only other noteworthy changes were a revision of the brutality rule to make ramming of any part of the body with a helmet a personal foul and elevation of kicking tees from one to two inches. THE TREVIOUS brutality rule called for a 15-yard penalty only for deliberate ramming of the head, face or neck with the hel met. Soccer Postponed Soccer games throughout the metropolitan area were postponed substitution only when the clock yesterday because of enow cov was stopped. Rather than squan-'ered pitches.

' Fan Killed in Riverside 500 Riverside, Calif., Jan. 17 (UPI) Dan Gurney, Costa Mesa, Calif., won his third consecutive Riverside 500-mile stock car road race today in a contest marred by accidents that killed one spectator and injured A. J. Foyt, twice winner of the Indianapolis -500. Foyt, who won the Indy 600 in 1961 and again last year, was in fourth place when his '65 Ford slipped going into the last turn on the winding 2.7-mile course. He appeared to having brake trouble and was traveling about 150 m.p.h. at the time. FOYT, 30, OF Houston, was taken to Riverside Community Hospital where he complained f chest pains. But his condition was reported not serious. He was conscious but apparently unable to speak when he was taken from the crushed front end of his car. The yellow caution flag was displayed early in the race when a forklift" truck, on which some spectators were standing, rolled down an incline, killing one man and injuring four others. The truck was stopped by a chain link fence along the course. Ronald Eugene Pickle, 20, San Diego, was pinned against the fence, suffering fatal chest injuries. Gurney was the front-runner for most of the 185-lap race after the early leader, Parnelli Jones, was forced to drop out on the 36th lay. The winning time was relatively slow 5.hours, 41 minutes and 42 seconds with an average speed of 87.708 m.p.h. This was the third annual Riverside 500 and no one except Gurney has won it. The victor was good for $12,500 out of the total of $65,000 in prizes. In second place, 27 seconds behind, was Junior Johnson, Ronda, N.C. Marvin Panch, Daytona Beach, was third. TVI0 SM-V; MO.
