The id«a of Aldo T. Donelli. progressive coach of Duquesne University, and forwarded to Asa Bushriell, commissioner of the Eastern Intercollegiate 'Assocla- tion, for approval, provides for more significant .symbols' 0*1 jerseys than plain numbers. Combatants would wear combination letter-numbers indicating positions. * « * A first-string end would be designated by "El," the "EV showing where he performs, the "1" that he is a first-stringer on the left side of the line. Positions on the left side of the line would cany odd numbers, those to the right side of center even. Trie right end would wear "E2. 1 ' the left tackle "Ti" the right tackle "E2", the left guard "Gl." the right guard "G2" and the center "Cl." "Hi" and "H2," would mark the halfbacks, "Ql" the quarter and "Fl" the full. Reserves would be listed similarly, the reserve left ends, for exam- pie, "E3" and "E5." Extra right ends would be "E4" and "EC." The other posts would be similarly marked. * * * Addicts now have to check programs to know who's who, and some coaches- make digits on the backs of key men so much alike that .scouts are confused. The rule permitting the handing: forward of the ball at any point behind the line of scrimmage may be a slight aid to deception, but will make no fundamental difference. •Hie regulation that brings a fourth down incomplete pass in the end zone back to where the play started instead of'the 20-yard line will, force the defending team to get out of its own jam.. If the rule permitting- players to be substituted as many times as desired is not- abused—by constant sending of information' into the game through substitutes—it will reduce injuries and help schools with small squads. The Canadian Confederation was formed in 1867. By DON SANDERS NBA Service staff Correspoudeiit NEW YORK, Feb. JS.-Basket- bali seems to be headed in two widely divergent directions. One i-> the free-scoring fire- horse school as demonstrated by Frank Keaney's Rhode island State aggregation; the other, the slow', deliberate offensive developed by John tawther at Penn [ State! Neither type of play is new except in the lengths to which it lias been carried. Critics Skeptical New. York coacries and critics remain skeptical, despite Penn .State's upset victory over New York University and Rhode Island's defeat of St. Francis. Rhode 'Island,, the t\vb-point-a- minute team which has dominated New England for five years, breaks faster and shoots more than any team seen in these parts, in years. Big, genial Frank keaney nas two pet theories around which his system revolves: 1. The more one shoots, the more points he'll make, since the percentage of successful shots made will remain approximately the same. . , 2. A long pass is superior to a lot of short ones because, with the latter, one error curtails the play. With the former, with a 50-50 chance of succeeding, a completed play is enough to demoralize an opponent. •...._: Thi-aw Lang Passes In practice, Keaney puts-his 260- pound son, Warner, under the basket to get the ball after, a score or missed shot. Warner Keaney, a baseball pitcher of some abiiity, rifles the ball the length of the court to Stutz Modzeiewski or Bud Conley, and the Rams have a good chance to score. At the opposite side of the picture is Lawtner. During" his highly successful regime at little Westminster, the scholarly Penn., State coach was one of the originators of the sliding zone defense, in which the defensive areas change as the offensive threat shifts-.
