14 Golesburg Register-Moil, Galesburg, III. Fridoy,.Sept, 20, 1963 School Sets I Amateurs. Pros Closer In Golf Code NEW YORK (AP)-Hopes of a worldwide golf code appear doomed, but U.S. amateurs and professionals are getting closer together on a uniform set of playing standards. This was the general reaction today to the announcement by the U.S. Golf Association that it is making four amendments, effective Jan. 1, 1964, which arc at variance with the rules adopted by the Royal and Ancient Club of j St. Andrews. The general effect is this: While golf will be played differently in Britain and the United States it will look more like one game in this country. The new rules, softening the penalties on unplayable lies and by local option on out-of-bounds, are more in line with those used by the pros on the Professional Golfers Association tour. They also should be welcomed by the lowly duffers. They cut down the costs of mistakes. The Royal and Ancient, which presides over the sacred ground where the game supposedly was born, and the U.S. Golf Associa- A New More Effective Answer to Arthritis and Rheumatism Pains Parkay Tablets is a medicine designed to give you relief from Arthritis, Rheumatism, bursitis, stiff Joints, muscular pains.

Hon make thft rules by which most of the world plays the game. The PGA, which runs the multimillion-dollar tour which has spawned such links capitalists as Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus, has been operating under still a different set of standards. Here arc the four basic changes in the USGA rules, not supported by the R & A: 1. Flagstick: A ball striking an unattended flagstick when played from the putting green or within 20 yards of the hole will be a penalty of loss of hole in match play and two strokes in stroke play. (At present, and under the R & A code, there is no penalty). 2. Unplayable Ball: The penalty to be cut from two strokes to one stroke for dropping the ball from an unplayable lie. As an alternative, a ball may be dropped within two club lengths of the point where the unplayable ball lay. The alternative of stroke and distance is retained. 3. Provisional Ball: May be played only for a ball which is lost or out-of-bounds and may not be played for a ball which is unplayable or in a water hazard. (The R & A code will allow a provisional ball for a ball lost, out of bounds or unplayable). 4. Local Rules. Local committees will be permitted to make certain provisions dealing with local conditions. On an out-of- bounds, a ball may be dropped, under penalty of one stroke, within two club-lengths of the place where the original ball last crossed the boundary line. The longest drive on the first hole of the 1963 U. S. Open at Brookline, Mass., went 292 yards. It was hit by George Bayer. TERMITES?

(AP) - If you're a football coach with season opener problems, don't men tion it to Maurice Wade, head man at Northeast Missouri State His squad has two openers to play in two nights. That's right. The Kirksville club faces Western Illinois Fri day night at Kirksville, then trav els about 200 miles to meet Washburn University at Topeka, Kan., Saturday night. "We wanted to get Western Illinois on a four-year contract and this was the only night they had open," Wade explained. "Washburn was dropping us after this season." Washburn wasn't able to find an opponent to replace Kirksville and held them to an earlier agreement. However, the game was moved up from an afternoon contest to a night game. "It shouldn't hurt the players," said Wade, who has a 73-29-2 record for his 12 years as coach. "We sometimes scrimmage two or three days straight. "The Western Illinois game comes first with us. Then we'll take what we have and go to Topeka." Veteran football observers couldn't recall a team playing two games in two days, at least in the modern era.
