LITTLE HOCK (AP) -- The Arkansas Activities Association is going oul of its way to appease tlie football fans' appetite for touchdowns. The rules for the Arkansas High School All-Star football game have been changed to aid he olfense. That means more points and, hopefully, more ans. "We're going to put on an of- ensive show," said Jerry Hall of the AAA, "People come to the basketball games to see the kids make goals. When they come to football games they want to see them make long runs an dsuch things as that." Rule changes that will be in effect in the All-Star game Saturday night at Little Rock's War Memorial Stadium: -The ball will be placed in the middle of the field for each play. --The defense can use only three down linemen and they must line up on the nose of the center and the tackles. --The linebackers cannot blitz. --Each team will have 41 players instead of 35 wilh half of the squad designated strictly for offense and the other half foi' defense. DEFENSE CAN SCORE In addition, the defense will be given an opportunity to put points on the board since il will have a chance to block kicks for the first, time. Mall said there was no doubt that athletes are more ready to )lay defense--which is more in- itincl than offense--when All- Star time rolls around. "This causes low-scoring Barnes," Mall said, "People don't like to 6-0. 7-0 or 7-6 ;ames. A kid may carry the jail 20 times, but make only 40 vards. That's kind of dull. People want to see (hose 25- and 30-yard runs." Kvcu more drastic changes are being contemplated (or 1975, Hall said the coaches have discussed requiring each team to pass on town of four downs and adoE'ting the "action point" of the World Football League. The action point, or extra point, must be a run or pass in the WFL. The West has won the past two years, 9-0 and 7-6. Although much ballyhoocd Jerry Eckwood of Brinkley will be on the sidelines with an injury, both teams have an abundance of name players. The East features linemen Leotis Harris and Gary Homier of Little Rock Hall. The West team includes running back Graylon Wyatt of .tale champion Tcxarkana, tackle Butch Baker of Malvern and split receiver James Langston of Prescott. There has been no problem with scoring in recent all-star basketball games. SPLIT LAST TWO The East won last year 94-92 and the West won in 1972 110-74. The West would appear to lave an advantage in basket- bail. Ron Brewer of Fort Smith Noilbside and M a r v i n Delph Of ^onway--considered the top two players in the state this year--will be together on the West team. Brewer and Delph led their teams to the finals of :he over-all stale tournament. Norlhside won and finished tha season unbeaten. Randy Curl of Pine Bluff, Greg Higgins of Little R o c k Catholic and Lee Smith at Earle are among the top names on the East. The basketball game will b« plaved at 2 p.m. Saturday at Barton Coliseum' in Little Rock. Practice sessions lor both' teams will be held throughout teams will be held throughout the week at Conway.
