THURSDAY, JANUARY 12, Id50 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH RulesChangein College Grids Recommended MBWYORK, Jan. 12, <#> -. plntoon-mlnded football coaches got downright gushy today In hall- Ing a recommended rules change that would permit one substitution at • time. "Say, that's wonderful," - chimed Bobby Dodd of Georgia Tech. "I'd rather have that rule than all the two-platoon rules In the book," The rule change was one of several recommended yesterday by the American College Football Coaches' mtet committee. U was tacked on to a solid vote to retain the two-platoon system. The recommendation is that each team be allowed to substitute one man after each down without stopping the clock and Incurring a penalty. At present a team Is penalized five yards for making a substitution when the clock Is running. "It's going to be a great thing for the smaller schools who can't play platoon football," said Lou Little of Columbia, chairman of the coaches' committee. Little also Is one of the members of the NCAA rules group, headed by Harvard's Bill Bingham, which will meet In Plnehurst, N. C., Monday to act on the proposed changes. The rules body normally follows the coaches' suggestions. "Now the small college can make a continuous change after each down without a penalty and can keep a stronger team on the field," Little added. Matty Bell of Southern Methodist said: "I'm all for it. It should help the little schools, that's true, but It also will mean a lot to the bigger ones who want to send In a punter at crucial times or a safety man If on defense." Jim Tatum of Maryland declared that the single substitution rule was badly needed and would make football "a more Interesting game." "I favored permitting three men to go on in, especially on fourth down," chimed in George Sauer, former Navy mentor, who is being eyed by Washington State. "There are times .when you have to send in a punter and need a center and maybe another man to go with him. If you have to take a penalty, sometimes it hurts your morale." Carl Snavely of North Carolina said It may cause congestion and cut down on the number of possible plays a game but added: "It may work out better than when we had it before the two-platoon system came in." There were objections on the free substitution rule by Harvey Harman of Rutgers, a strong foe of two-platoon football, and Bob Neyland of Tennessee. "We're Btill trying to emulate the pros," said Neyland. "The pros are losing money every year and we're making it. I don't get it." Free substitution would be permitted, as usual, under the recommendations. Full teams may be sent In after each change of the ball or whenever the clock is stop a - ped. Other recommended changes In the rules included lightening of the offensive blocking rule to read'. No offensive player may strike an opponent's head, neck or face with locked hands, forearms, elbows or upper arm." At present, the rules stipulate the hands must be against the body and not locked. Hogan, Snead Wait Week for Golf Playoffs LOS ANGELES, Jan. 12. UP» Bantam Ben Hogan, Mr. Comeback of golf, and Slammin' Sammy Snead must wait a week for their Los Angeles Open title playoff. They were set to slosh it out yesterday over the rain-soaked Rivie ra Country Club course. But 10 minutes before tee off tin^a, the Junior Chamber of Commerce, sponsor of the $15,000 tourney, decided to call It off "In the interests of good golf." Hogan, happy at the opportunity to rest his weary legs, and Snead both smiled in agreement The 18-hole replay Is set for next Wednesday. The delay no doubt will help Bantam Ben. Golfers and fans alike are still talking about his anuudnf comeback. This was his first tournament after a Texas auto accident last February which nearly cost his life and letf his legs crippled for months. Ben, after a two-over-par first round of 73, steadied down for three successive 69s for a 72-hole 280, playing like the Hogan of old. Snead sank birdies on the final k two holes for 280 and a crack at the 12600 first prize. Second spot earn* $1900. Hogan heads north to compete In th* thm-day Bing Crosby pro- amateur tournament at Pebble Batch, Calif., starting tomorrow, Nationals Lose Again in NBA •r tilt ASSOCIATED PRESS The Syracuse Nationals, Eastern Division pacemakers In the National Basketball Association, may finally have hit th* slump so long hoped for by their pursuers.

Baugh Wants to Quit Redskins; Coach Baylor R.V BOB JOHNSON, JR. ROTAN, Tex., Jan. 12 </P)-Sllng- n' Sammy Baugh as much as said ast night he's ready to quit Wash- ngton Redskins and coach football at Baylor. There are still a couple of items to be taken care of—such as getting a definite offer from 3aylor and a release from -the Redskins. But. if the deal goes through, It couldn't be a lot. worse—for Wash- ngton fans—if the othe,r 10 men n the Redskins' first string all broke their legs. Sam has been around Washington longer than a lot. of Democrats. Baugh said at his ranch near icre that officials from the Bap- tlst school at Waco have asked him if he'd be Interested In a Job as head coach. They need a replacement for Bob Woodruff, who quit last week to go to the University of Florida. "I'd be interested In the job all right if I could get things fix*d up with the Redskins," the string- bean passing wizard said. That meant he'd have tr» fix It up with George Preston Marsha!!, laundryman owner of the Wash ngton National Football League clyo, to get out of his contract to pjay next season. Baugh said he didn't know whether that' could be done. (In Washington, Marshall could n't be reached for comment, but associates said he hadn't heard of Baylor's advances.) Anyhow, said Sam, "I figure they've talked to about a dozen other guys, too." He's right. But the word from Waco was that the men Baylor would like most to get are Baugh, Backfield Coach, H. N. (Rusty) Russell of Southern Methodist and dead coach Don Faurot of Missouri—with Baugh In the lead. The only Baylor official who could.-' be reached for comment— President W. R. White—said he wasn't abreast of the situation but "Baugh should make a great coach." He also said there hadn't been a definite selection. Urge'Honest' Sanity Code in NCAA Colleges By WILL GfUMStHY NEW YORK, .tan. 13 <*»—Vlr- jhla arid Virginia Tech urged the NCAA today to adopt an "honest" sanity code permitting above- oard but rigidly enforced scholar- hips on athlette ability. The Dixie institutions, two of even facing expulsion because of dmltted infractions, appeared be- ore top officials' of the National Collegiate Athletic Association to irgue that the present code Is hypocritical and unworkable." The NCAA executive committee d council met In a Joint session o study cases against the schools which have notified authorities hey are not abiding by the code. Norton O. Prltchett, Virginia ithletlc director, wan a militant pokesman for^the rebellious group, ssertlng: "The sanity code, as now onstrued, is not the answer. WP must find out what will enable us II to follow It and maintain our elf-respect." Virginia, Virginia Tech and The Citadel are three schools known to e In the list of violators. Virginia Military is another. The NCAA has efused to divulge the Identity of he recalcitrants. Today's meeting was a closed af- air and the NCAA said none of he testimony would be disclosed. If the executive committee and ouncil adopt the recommendation if the constitutional compliance lommlttee, the vote for expulsion would be placed before the entire membership of some 300 Saturday. It would require a two-thirds >te of those present to kick the schools out. But there have been hints of a compromise, averting a showdown, and Karl Leib, white- haired president of the NCAA, has announced the "sinners" will be ;iven every opportunity to repent. He indicated quick forgiveness. Expulsion would, technically, prevent the ostracized institutions rom competing with NCAA members. LaMotta Signs ForNon-Title February Bout By CHARLES 0. CAIN DETROIT, Jan. 12. (#»)—Mid dlewelght champion Jake La Motta came up today with at least a partial solution to his difficulties with the New York Athletic Commission over failure to defend his title. He signed for a non-title 10- round bout with Dick Wagner oi Toppenish, Wash., at'Olympic here Feb. 3. The announcement eased the tension that had arisen betweer the Bronx, N. Y., champion and Chairman Eddie Eagan of the New York Commission. But it caused some eye-brow raising here. Eagan had threatened to vacate the championship if La Motta dif not sign by Feb. 1 for a title da- fense sometime in March. However, Eagan said that, slnre Jake had agreed to fight Wagner even on a non-title basis—the commission would not Insist on the March championship fight. At the same time/ Eagan empha sized that La Motta must sign by Feb. 1 for an outdoor title match presumably this summer. "If I see La Motta has signed for an outdoor championship match by that date, then I am certain the commission will go along without vacating the title,' Eagan said. La Motta won the middleweigh crown from the late Marcel Cer dan of France here last June and since then has had only one fight a non-title affair against Ttober Vlllemain of France. La Mott dropped the decision In that one. fllini Have Five Home Games in '52 .CHAMPAIGN, Jan. 12. UF>— III! nols will open Its nine-game 1U5 football schedule against Iowa State at Champaign.

Sports Roundup Billikens Set Example for Others by Dropping Football Bv HUGH FULLERTOX, JR. NEW YORK, Jan. 12. UP) — St. Louis University may have set an example for some other colleges in similar athletic situations when it decided to drop football . . . The university president has had a query from at least one other school asking what the reaction was among students and alumni when the move -was announced. . . . The Ford Motor Company is interested In sonsoring the National Collegiate Baseball Tournament, but there's some question whether the N.C.A.A. will stand for having an "outsider" move in on its nffair. . . . The college baseball coaches, more than a trifle annoyed at professional ball anyway, are thinking about making one break with the pros. That would be to legalize a laminated wood bat instead of the solid piece of lumber the rules now require. Divided Responsibility J. F. "Pop" McKale, Arizona's celebrated yarn-spinner, tells this one 'about a Mexican kid who played ball for him a few years ago. ... He was a fair player but "weak on signals," Mac explains. In fact, he was In college mainly to learn to speak English. . . . Came a tough game when the opposing pitcher lost control and filled the bases in the ninth inning. . . . Mac decided to let the Mexican lad take his turn, figuring he might also draw a walk, . . . "Take one," McKale told aim and the kid looked blank, he tried his own version of Spanish, "Toma one." The player smiled and nodded. He went to the plate and watched the first pitch cut the heart of the plate. Then he took a second risht over the middle and a third. As he re- take one self."
