Roughness Hit said i college nrofc' Other major rule changes up for flna approval by the committee relate to unnecessary roughness clipping, defensive holding and sub- titution. Cracking down on rough play the committee has tentatively approved adding striking with the forearm, elbows and locked hands to the use of fists and knees which make the offender subject to disqualification. Up until now, 15 yards was the punishment. It also marte It mandatory Instead of discretionary for officials to throw out of the game any flagrant offender of the rules on personal fouls. On clipping, the rewritten rule tates simply, "biocklns an opponent other than the runner, from behind" Is- a foul. New Pointer Rule For the last two years It has been a violation to hit an opponent. from the rear only below the waist. The penally for defensive holding will be increased from five to 15 'arris. In order to make coaches think -wlce about sending In a substi- ute just for the purpose of punt- ng while the clock Is running, the rule will be changed to charge s Ime out. It has been only a five- ^ard penalty which hasn't delerreci caches since they Intended to kick nyway. This change is expected to be he only one in the liberal siibsti- utlon rules which make possible ' use of the two-platoon system hroughotit the game. i Thomas Leading Scorer in AIC SouMiern State Ace Meshed 142 Points in Four Conference TiJts WTTLE ROCK OT-CalvIn Thomas, towering Southern .state's teller who racked up 44 point,, | n game, is the Arkansas Inter- Conference's leading collegiate scorer.
