Few Rule Changes Propose'd For 1947 Collegiate Football BY OSCAK HIALKV United Press Sports Writer NEW YORK, Jan. 3. (UP)—Very few -rule changes arc being contemplated today for collegiate football and about the only one which would make any' difference to the /mi is probably permission to run with a fumble. Thtil thrilling tactic, which the colleges abandoned in 1928, has been one of professional football's better drawing cards. The campus coaches are not unmindful of the keen competition from play- for-pay ranks, particularly In the coming days when tickets will be more difficult to sell when they are right now. So that Is one of I he proposals which chairman Ix>u Little of Columbia will present at Sunday's rules committee of the national college football coaches association. Others ui> for discussion are: 1. PultliiK tlw ball In play 21) yards in from the sidelines. 2. A "happy medium" substitution ruling. 3. Barring (he running shift. \. Option of changing goals after being scored u]X>n, 5. Softening of protective equipment. 6 nail dead If a P. A. T kick is blocked. But lo the fan. the proposal to permit running with a fumble Is the meat of the rules changes. Currently a fumble Is dead at the spot of recovery—unless it is recovered wliilc still airborne in which case a runner •nmv advance. ••Running with a fumble wasn't banned because of injuries so much is to encourage the use of laterals." Little explained. "Well, football is n lot different than in 1928 team should pay for its er- •ors. They still could use laterals ml forbid advancement of a fumbled lateral."

"The ideal place from which lo start A play Is the middle of the field." "If I the had Columbia coach said, my way it would bo brought In Hint far, but I'd settle for 20 yards. 1 ' The iimnlng shift, us used Dy Navy against Army to draw the Cadets offsides, drew much criticism in a questionnaire which Little sent to 1.20CO coaches. There also was much sentiment In favor of permitting a scored upon team its choice of goals, which In cases give it the benefit of the would wind. In declaring dead n blocked point after touchdown, it would prevent the wild scramble for the ball. The rules now permit the blocked ball lo b= run back by the kicking team. "We would like to strike a happy medium on the business of substitutions." Little declared. "Under discussion is permission to make three replacements while the ball Is changing hands and continue the three times out per half." , Much consideration also is being Too Lot* fo Classify For Sale Filxpntrlck Jewelry Independents downed the Cooter Indciicndcii'.s by a 35 to 25 count last nlghl on tile Ciosnell High School floor.
