PACE EIGHT BLTTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, JANUARY fc 9* A Changes in Golf Rules Will Make Things Tougher for Us Duffers Ml my »oW elubs, Mom, I'm taking up shinny. Aft« thoroughly IHding these new golf rules there's not but one thing I haw to say— Dunk goodness I quit the game a couple o( years ago. Ttw new rule«, which went feito •Meet with th* turn of th* new jwu, aren't going to make too much ««er»nce to the links hot shots but to the poor old duffers like me they're going to make us lose what little religion we have left. While it is agreed that t uniform •ode wu needed for the sport, It Is our humble opinion that the boys who write the rule books «ort of overdid themselves. For the Bunday afternoon dudes who have trouble hitting their long shot* (any that travel over 50 yards In our ens*) itraight, the new rules are downright criminal. Tor instance, under the new rules t golfer now gets penalized both a ttroke and distance when he hits out of bounds. Formerly, all he lost was distance. Here's a nutshell summary of the new rules as we interpret them: Wrong bull—Playing a stroke with any wrong ball except in a hazard call* from the loss of » hole in match play or two strokes In stroke play. Dropping a ball improperly calls for a one-stroke penalty and if a bal| at rest is moved by an opponent, his caddie or any equipment means a penalty stroke for the opponent. Out of bounds—Penalty increased to stroke and distance. A clearer Interpretation would be this: On a lo*t or out of bounds ball, return nearest .the «pot from where you htt.the ball and add one stroke. In other, words, after'an out-of-bounds tea shot you would be shooting three on your drive. TJnjitmymble ball—You have an op Hon here. You can either return to the *pot from where you last hi and add a penalty stroke or ym ten drop a ball behind the unplay able He and add two strokes. Ca.v vet water, ground under repair, holi made by burrowing animal: yoi maf lift and drop the bill wlthou petMlfcy. hi IM«W«—H-a b»B BM hi or touches coeuel water, ground under yepaar or a hole, a runwa made bf a burrowing antmal yoi may IMt and drop.the ball wlthou penaMf M near ae possible to th •pot wticre H lajr but not nearer the hole.' Or, under penalty of on »trc*e, yo« may drop the ball outride the hfrtard but not nearer th he*. '•::.. !•"*•« afcoHshed—When th • the hole He* on putttn reen, tt may be lifted, If either layer considers that It might In- erfere with or assist a player. (This ule 1* unchanged as far as most curses are concerned as stymies were not enforced except in some ases, in tournament play.) Club*—None of the 14 clubs pcr<- nlssable in a golfer's bag may be sorrowed from any other person jlaying the course. These are the major rules langes. Ttiere are others, such as he size of the ball and the con- tructlon of clubs but they arc mainly changes to eliminate differences previously existing between JSOA and British regulations. last Chicks and Paps Sweep Doubleheader from Paragould Tribe Smothers Bulldogs 71-37; Juniors Win 32-23 PARAGOULD—Blytheville's senior Chicks and junior 'apooses dealt the Paratfould Bulldoga a douhle blow here ast night, sweeping both ends of a basketball double header. * port * In Spurt* Remember the argument of year about who ivas hnsohnlVfi grrales* hlffer, Ty Cobn or Hal* Ruth?

Coach Jimmy Fisher's Chicks lung up their seventh victory of the season in easy fashion. Except brief period at the game's beginning, the Bulldogs offered little resistance, unabio to cope with the taller and more seasoned Chicks. After building up a 2B-M halftime margin, the Chicks went wild In the second half. With Montroe Holland, their big plvolmnn, and Joo Lynn Vowel], their cream- smooth playinaker leading the way, the Chicks completely outclassed the Bulldogs in the final two per- iocls. .

The game was a bit ragged and at times got a little wild us both sides missed numerous lay-up shots. Bobby Jones with 12 points paced the Paps and center Danny Edgmon chipped in wltrl eight. Reedcr was high for Pnragould with five counters. Tomorrow night, the Paps go to Cfmithersville for a pair of games and Friday night the Chicks stay at home to take on Humes of Memphis. Junior Game Blytheville (32) Pos. (23) Pnr'gould Paragould Boy Shows Game Can Be Sport What price sportsmanship? To Dolph Wineland, Parneould High School basketball player, the price evidently makes no difference for he risked having a technical foul called against his team last night in order to b* of assistance to nn Injured Blytheville player. It happened In the second quarter o( the Blythevllle-Paragoulrl game at Parngould. Robert Harrison.

The floor officials and other players apparently hadn't noticed thnt Harrison was Injured for play continued. But Wineland did. He his defensive position, helped Harrison to the bench and then screamed to the officials requesting a time out. Actually, Winelnnd made hlm- aelf eligible for a technical foul for Blytheville had possession of the ball when he requested the time out and the rules say you can't do that unless the ball is dead or In the possession of your team or there IB an injury to you or a teammate. But Blytheville Coach Jimmy Fisher requested that Wlneland's time out' be charged against his team, not against Paragould.
