Ma (on* , KOT. «, 1952, A Comes the Time When You Must Toke o Look at Those Cage Rules High school basketball fans who think they are just beginning to recognize their favorite sport once again are in for another jolt this 'year. While we were sweltering under the hot rays of the sun last summer the red pencil brigade of the National Federation of High Schools had more important things to do and it did it. Th* ' NFHS Basketball Rules Committee, which In recent years apparently has enjoyed keeping cage .fans well confused with a yearly overhaul of the game's code of rules, really did it up brown this year, particularly girl's basketball. So let this be a warning to the home town rooters, when you so out to see. your first game, go'ex- pecting to see anything because that's Just about what you'll see. While the rules makers were » bit heavy lii changing' up girls' rules, they didn't make too mony alterations in the boys' game but the ones they r)!d make are major ones. So to the best of our ability we will attempt here to explain them. Most of the changes in both boys and girls rules have to dp with fouling and shooting of foul shots. This phase of the game has been >tmost completely overhauled by :hree major ctumges. Th* On* an* On« Rol* The first and most important of these is the addition • of what, is known as . a ."one-and-one" free shot rule. The rule' iteelf sounds a bit complicated but breaking it down it's really very simple. Th* one-and-one rule works like this: * * In the first 29 minutes of boys' games and the' first 25 minutes of (iris' games on all one-shot touts, the player fouled gets * second 'ree throw if he or she misses'the [irst. In other words say a player s charged at mid-court whU« not n the act of shooting. The fotil entitles that player to me free Uirow. If that free tliro'*' Is made the game proceeds as It always did but if the shooter misses the free throw he or she is automatically awarded a second -Tie. The object of the rule Is to penalize the fouling team one point and thereby make teams more foul conwloui As we said before the rule sounds complicated but it's really simple. The things to remember are thit t is In effect only on one-shot ouls committed before the last hree minutes of the game and hat the primary object of the rule to penalize the fouling team one nother strong team when they ook the measure of Armorel's girls. &»-!«. Creecy and Johnson'each had 16 points for Reiser and Hudson hit tor 14 to lead Armorel's girls Armorel's boys hold a previous 45-341 victory over Holland. point. Jtesi Tw, If th* second of premium free shot Is also mlsied the shooting player doe* not let a third. The game Just, proceeds as it does after a two-shot foul! The other two changes In the fouling and free shot. rules are: (1) in either boys or girls games, no fre* throw, may be waived and (2). also In both boys and.girjs games any foul, regardless of where it happened or to. whom it happened, during the last three minutes of the final quarter or in any extra period, Is a two shot foul. This is designed to rid the game of rough stuff that is generally found in the-closing minutes of practically every close ball game. There are two other changes jn boys'rules that we think should be brought to the fans' attention. They are minor ones but may cause some confusion in the early season. They are: (1) the spaces along the free throw lane marked "H" for home team and "V" for visit- Ing team must be filled on all one-shot (or one-and-one) tree throws resulting from personal fouls with th« exception of a double foul. , This means that if * team doesn't want to. it doesn't have to put the required.three men on the line but the "H" and "V" spaces have to: be filled. On 'technical foul shots the ball is, dead after the shot' regardless 'of how many so the rule Is riot In effect. And: (2) Last year's rule which prohibited a player fiom touching his team's basket while the ball is on or above thf ring, his been deleted However, it Is still a violation for a defensive player to touch the o Ifenslve teams' goal while the ball Is on or above the ring. Both of these rules changes are in effect In girls basketball, too Girls Chances Girls basketball this year win be played almost exactly like boys Girls will still play half court and use six a team but under the 1952-53 code (a) all jump balls are one of the three circles Instead of on at the spot (b) after a successful free throw, the ball b put Into play under the basket as to boys. Aftera successful field goal the ball Is put into play on a center throw-In Just as it was last year. Another * major change in ^ girls' rules Is^ta timlng.^Glrls wilUplay seven minute quarters this year instead of six. The rest of the game, what little there Is left, remains as was. South and West Lead Way with Alt^Americans *r HAKKV NEA' Sport. Editor NEW YORK —Since this department inaugurated the two-platoon AJ]-Ameriea football team three years ago, it has been said that the supply of player* greatly exceeded thf demand even with the positions doubled to 22. If the (electors were naming 222, there wouldn't be enough places to satisfy everybody. The unit plan has swelled the number of college football plajers to more than 20000. What we really should' do is name kick-off and punting platoons and their receiving" 'counterparts. extra-point men and what-not, the way a lot of coaches employ them. That would make so many more young men, happy. Not a few ask what an All-America .proves, but this is for sure- nobody ever will succeed m making It' unpopular with the Jans. And it is amazing how the electorate agrees on the first team men, so here's ihe 1S52 NEA All-America, picked by the country's coaches and sports writers: OFFENSE Ends—Steve Men/infer, Kentucky, 112; and Bernie Flowers, Purdue, IK. ^ TacUe*_H*l Miller.

The others are California, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Michigan Slate, Navy, Notre Dame, Princeton, Purdue, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia, Athletes must be picked on performance a« well 'as ability. That's why a boy like Harry Agganis of Boston University, though he may very, well be the slickest quarterback In the land in the eyes of the professionals,-has not had the opportunity to prove It with a weak supporting cast.:Stalwarts like Don McAulIffe, the hardest runner on the mighty Michigan State Squad, were aided and abetted by magnificent outfits and numbers. In this day of specialists, it is interesting to note that 10 of the 22 first-string men are two-way performers—Catlin, WUlholte, Mei- hnger, McPhee/Scott, Sears, Lattner, Perry and, at times. Vessels and Tamburo. Meilinger and Cameron are the only juniors on the first offensive team, Lattrier on the defensive side. Meiilnger switched from end to split-T quarterback, and is regarded is the most formidable ill-round player in college. The tonenng Kentucklari deserves special attention for being:picked ahead of such tremendous ends as Texas' Tom Stolhandske, UCLA's Ernie Stocfc- ert, Pennsylvania's Bd Bell, Notr* Dame's Bob O'Neill, not to mention Paul Dekker of Michigan state »ud seme more. < UCLA would have little more than I an extraordinary defens* without !

MooniAw ordinarily : is'a linebacker, but the NBA i operatives elected him by u wid* a margin as our linebackers, Tamburo and Morrli, so we've placed the UCLA giant at defensive tackle, where h*. wouldn't exactly crimp any array's style Injuries that spelled time out contributed as much as anything etee to the fact that such merited combatants as Joe Schmidt, potent Pittsburgh linebacker, and Al Brosky, Illinois safety man, missed first team plaques. .
