Irackett Joins UCLA Grid Staff LOS ANGELES, Jan. 4, UPi lerbert B. (Deke) Brackett, back- ielri and head baseball coach at ! he University of Arkansas the' >ast three years, has joined the I 'CLA grid coaching staff. Head Coach Henry (Red) :-and .* announced yesterday that the or mer Tennessee quarterback would serve as an all-around as Eddie Erdelatz Top Choice for Middie Coach ANNAPOLIS, Md., Jan. 4. Iff)— Eddie Erdelatz and naval academy officials prepared to sit down today for a conversation which will determine whether he will be Navy's new head football coach. There was no doubt that Erdel- latz, 36-year-old assistant coach of San Francisco's pro 49'ers, was the top choice. Capt. Howard Caldwell, Navy's director of athletics said that "If we come to an agreement, the Job is his, If not, we'll call someone else In for consultation.'' An academy spokesman said a flock of applications have come here from coaches who would like to get the job. "Some of them are Interesting" he added. The Navy already has firsthand knowledge of Erdelatz'i ca pabllltles. He was end coach here In '45, '46 and '47. Navy officials apparently are satisfied that he Is good enough to handle a Middle torn which regularly faces one of the country's toughest, schedules. It will be the terms and work ing conditions that both sides must agree on. Erdelatz is expected to arrive.In Washington after a plane trip from the west coast In time for a noon conference at the Academy. He Is a former star end and heavyweight boxer at St. Mary's College (Calif.) where he gradu ated in 1935. His opportunity to take over the coaching reins at Navy was brought about by the resignation last week of George Sauer, head mentor of the Academy for the ast two seasons. Sauer quit when ,he Navy athletic association refused, to renew the contracts of assistant coaches Vic Bradford and Bob Ingalls.

Injured Boxer Shows Steady Improvement NEW YORK, Jan. 4, <JP)—Boxer Carmine Vlngo will be removed from the critical lilt if his improvement continues another 48 hours, Dr. Vincent Nardlello said ait night. Vingo wa* critically Injured CHICAGO, Jan, 4 — UPl — The Mississippi river lamprey scar* of six weeks ago doesn't seem to be serious after all. This is the conclusion of wildlife biologists after a preliminary Investigation. They say the lam* prey menace seems to be a localized danger not seriously affecting fishing in most parts of V. e upper Mississippi. The lamprey involved, Is of the river variety—not to be confused with the sea lamprey which is decimating the fish population of the great lakes. Eldon Saeugling, superintendent of the federal fish hatchery at Guttenberg, Iowa, discovered a heavy increase in lamprey damage in his area * the river. He said the lamprey had greatly increased and were killing buffalo, catfish and carp. The report was surprising. Biologists had never heard of previous severe fish damage by the river lamprey. ^A biologist assigned to investigate interviewed scores of fishermen. His conclusion was that the danger apparently is confined to the Guttenberg area. "Apparently what has happened at Guttenberg is a local occurrence and is in the nature of a flare-up," he said. "Time alone will tell if this will spread. We should watch the situation closely." A continent-wide count of wild geese and ducks will be made Jan. 10-13. The 16th annual water fowl census—by plane, boat and land — was announced by the Fish & Wildlife Service. It will be conducted by 1300 trained observers in the major wintering grounds from Alaska to Guatemala and the West Indies. Canadian, Mexican and U. S. government specialists, state conservation agencies and armed forces pilots will take part in the count. Air photographs of large groups of waterfowl will be taken to serve as a check on the accuracy of the estimates. Results of the inventory, together with spring and summer Field investigations, will be used in setting up annual hunting regulations. Army engineers have announced plans to study winter kills of fish and wildlife of the upper Mississ- ppl. Particular attention will be paid to the effect of winter draw- downs in the several navigation pools south of Rock Island. In the past it has been noted that low temperatures, heavy ice, and deep snow usually were associated with heavy winter losses. For that reason, cpmplete records will be kept o/i ice conditions, snow depth, and air temperatures. Investigations of reported losses of fish and wildlife to determine the actual cause of death will be made by biologists of the conservation departments of Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Missouri, the Illinois Natural History Survey, and the U. S. Fish & Wildlife Service. Gridder Hurt in Toboggan Crash CORVALLIS, Ore., Jan. A toboggan collided with an automobile last night, critically injuring Stan McGuire, Oregon State college football captain, and kill- ng another athlete.

The Now York heavyweight suffered a brain hemorrhage, Golfers,0utside UnitedStates, Change Rules By BEN FULMAR LONDON, Jan. 4, UP>— Most of the golf playing world outside the United States has a new set of rules this year. Drafted by the rules of goli committee of the Royal A Ancien Golf Club at St. Andrews, Scot land, the new regulations which went Into effect officially on Jan 1, don't look much different from the old ones which held good for 15 years. Minor differences between thi R. at A. rules and the code o the United States Golf Associa tion still exist and several new ones were added. The biggest single change In th< R. ft A. version reduces the pen alty for a ball lost, out of bounds or unplayable. Where the golfer used to return to the point from which the original shot went astray and shot another ball, in addltioi to adding a penalty stroke. The new rule does away with the pen* alty stroke and leaves only the loss of distance. The American rule still agrees with the old reg ulatlon. The player will have two choice; In the case of an unplayable ball He can go back to the point o: the shot with the penalty only o; loss of distance. The same as witl the new rule on a lost ball. Or he can drop a ball within two club lengths of the unplayable bal under the penalty of one stroke Another definite change appliei to the search for lost balls, / player no longer is penalized i he or his caddie accidentally moves his ball during the search. The R. & A. regulation on the stymie rule—remains unchanged The rules committee says that In match play an opponent's bal on. the green which blocks the path to the cup may be lifted only if the two balls are within six Inches of the cup, regardless of how far it is from the other ball. A rule covering undue delay has been introduced into the R. & A code for the first time. It provides for a penalty of disqualification. The American rule was relaxed in March of last year to penalize a player only the loss of a hole in match play or two strokes in medal play. The new R. & A. code will be given a two-year trial and then amended if the committee thinks it's necessary.

Last year, In the final three minutes of the ball gama, the team that was fouled could elect to shoot the free throw or decline the free throw and Uke the ball out of bounds. This converted the final minutes of the game into a contest of keepaway with the team in the lead freezing the ball and the defense fouling wildly In an effort to get it. The situation made no one particularly happy, so the rules were changed. And the changes varied from state to state and from high school to college to professional. In Illinois high schools, a team may not decline a free throw In the final two minutes. But if the free throw Is made, the team shooting the shot gets the ball out of bounds at the centerllne. But apparently, a lot of coaches and fans aren't too happy about this situation. Most people agree, however, that the rule in high schools of other states is worse. In Missouri, for instance, the free thrower may not decline the shot in the final two minutes, but his team gets the ball out of bounds after the shot regardless of whether he makes trie point or not. This puts more of a burden on the defense thin the rules did last year. A guard who fouls has no chance to get the ball, but ha givoe the of* fenslv* ptayw • chanet to get points and ktep tha ball. Tha eollegt rulaa also varied, with some going along with Btt- nols and soma with tha etkar state prep rules. But tha collage ooaehes •re even less happy than tha high school mentors. A recent college game wea need as an experiment to see how a variation of the rules would work. After a free throw In the final two minutes, a Jump ball wsi called, with the Jumpers assigned by their captains. Both cokchei claimed that the variation, which is effectively the same as the professional rule, is a vast Improve* ment over any of the high school or college rules now In effect. So the jump following the free throw in the final two minutes may be part of the rule book next season. The charge leveled by coaches at the present rule is that it effectively makes the game 38 minutes long (in college). Maybe the rule will be in effect in high school next year and we can see how it will get along with the prep players. Certainly, it should open up the game—which seemi to be the modern trend. We thinh that the Illinois high school rule has done this to a great extent, but of course the jump ball deal would do more. Prep By THt ASSOCIATED FBESS Ckleag* Araa Kankakee 46, Streator 38.
