STIEHM ENTHUSIASTIC OVER AMENDED FOOTBALL RULES 1 am strongly In favor of the new rules recently handed down governing football lor the coming BeaBon," declared Coach SUehm of the university this morning. "It seems to me that all of the weaknesses of last season's game - have been strengthened by, the new enactments, and the game Itself next season will be a decided Improvement over that of last !"Tb establishment of the ten yard zone beyond the goal lines, allowing scoring on a forward pass, was very much needed under the 1911 play. By the new rule, the offensive team will have as good a chance to gain ground while near their opponent's goal line as it had In the middle of the Held. This la as it ought to be. Many a superior team went down to defeat or a tied score during the past season, because of the old rule. "Because there was always the chance of throwing a forward pass too far when the offensive team was near the goal line, with the result that the chance to score would be lost, the forward pass was not used when a team advanced within striking distance. As a result line smashing football had to be resorted to and this was a decided disadvantage to the team on the offense. When the ball was pushed Into dangerous territory, the defensive team immediately threw Its backfleld into the line to protect Its goal line from the plunges of .its opponents. The offense had to plunge into a line of ten men or eveh eleven in some cases. A heavier and superior team, because of this strengthened defense, was many times unable to score. Th Mnr inn a allowlnc the scor ing of the forward pass will prevent all this and will give the strongest tea the same cnance or auvanong me ball by line plunges that It had in the middle of the field. Because forward passes over the goal line will henceforth count as a touchdown, provided, of course, there is a successful termination of the pass, the nek field cannot ko into the line on the defense but must stay back to nanaie ine dsu on uid um Thi will allow the offensr team to plunge Into the same number of men as In the center of the field and the sensational 'stone wall' at the critical stage of the game, is likely to be no more. "This disadvantage of the stronger team in the contests since the revision of the rules from the so-called old stvle srame. has led to the de feat of many championship teams. It has been the cause of victories of small colleges over the best in the land. A second new rule will place the best team on a better proportionate position with the weaker, and that is the raising the score touch down to six points. two field goals total subsequent Because touchdown Koala, as Nebraska learned to their sorrow In the game with Ames, strong teams in many cases have been unable to win because their opponents developed n droD kicker. This is unfair. Un doubtedly kicking Is. one of the sen sations or the came, DUt it does stand to reason that a team which has heady and careful team play and superior to its opponents in every ae-Dnrtment of the feame except kicking. should be fled or even beaten in a came where tne opponents Dy aa vanclng the ball a short distance into its territory can score by two lucky kicks. '1 have not yet given the new rules my thorough consideration but these two points appeal to me especially. Before Coach Stagg of Chicago went to tne conference or coacnes to ap-Dear as a representative of the west ern colleges, he wrote to the athletic directors of the different schools for; opinions on the matter or new ruies. the two. I have outlined, except the cnanges were women out in a wmc-what different manner. "In my letter to Stagg, I recommended that the ball be 'dead' im mediately on its striking the ground on a blocked kick. This, in my opinion. Is an element of luck that should not enter into the real game of foot ball, and it was responsible for ou: tied score with Michigan. The rule of course is too radical to be adopted at the present time, but I stil maintain that It should be put Into effect." MRS.
