PAGE BIZ NEW FOOTBALL RULES STUDIED TIME Coaches and Players Work Under New Rules in . Spring DriHs. ' BY FRKR BAII.KY United PrHs Star! Corrrspondenl NEW YORK.—Spring fooibal practice Is in full swine al hundreds of American colleges. Of chief interest among; the coaches and players are the changes in rules made by the nnlional rules committee since las( season. ^^^^^ Two changes arc Ix-lng considered, most In lhe spring drills. h the ne«- "dead ball" rule, which prohibits a ball carrier from advancing once any pan of his body except his feel, hns loiiched lhe ground. Second is lhe new kickoff, which permits HID ball to be punltd m drop-kicked, Instead of placc-klck- - ed, o.i heretofore. Other mlra, designer! lo nflort the plnycrs a greater degree of safely, are the elimination of lhe "flying Ttedge," tho "rolling block 1 and the "flying lacklc." These changes were made because of deaths resulting Inst season from gridiron play. What tlie fans ore asking nnd the coaches striving lo supply an ' answer to Is: WJiat changes will result fn styles of offense and dc tense? Coach Charles Frnnck "Chile" Walsh, football coach at St. Louis University, and a former Noire Dame star, who follows lhe Rovkiie system of play, finds little cause lor worry. '•• "Tho fans won't notice much change In the game," Walsh said. "If anything, the play .should be a bit faster because there probably will be Iras time taken out. for injured players." Elimination of tho "rolling block" and "flying tackle" Walsh believes to be good rules. "But," lie snld, • "I have been given lo understand a later Interprelallon will announce these two rules will be applied only to high school teams." Some exceptions should bo |>cr- , mittcd'ln. the "dead ball" rule, .Walsh believes. "Suppo;;;," he said .'"that a quarterback takes HID ball from center nnd drops back Into a position to pass U to a back, his knee grazing u-i ground as he does - so. Why, the ball would be dead before the play aclually starts. The big difference, Walsh believes, will come in the stylo of piny : during (he fcickoff. The punt oi- drop-kick, will permit Ihc kicker . to place his kickofi—that. Is, to se- lecf the plnyer (o ivhom he wishes the ball to go. "The result," Walsh said, "will bo that the receiver will feel more or less like a gangster 'mi llic spot 1 The kicking side will have determined in advance lo which player (he kick is going and will promptly swamp.hini. It places the receiver at a disadvantage. "As for the flying wedge, I con't see that they have abolished it al all. Six men may be back of lhe 45-yard line to form a wedge , What's to keep the five on the 45- yard line from facing their own goal, and Ihen when ihc kick is made, running rapidly back and * gathering In the receiver?"
