No conclusions were, drawn and we are ready to confess that it is a subject on which we have ho clear cut convictions. The point was brought up, however, (hat it is a little Incdnsistent lo select an all-state team that has seven centers and three juards. .That point was answered wilh the statement that four of the centers were picked for forward positions and one for a guard spot i£ teams be filled Ficihts Last Nioht (By tht Associated Prwi) ,of ,',, Lake Clt y-Jack- Nelson, 18 5,i West.

' Keei it* with the ttvea--re** th» T'lOTH danr _- __ ·'.. " "·" ~ in order that out properly. It was stated that the centers on mpsl of the teams were the outstanding performers and that they were the'only logical selections. But opposed to that view point was the man who held that the centers were,»in most cases, dependent Upon the guards arid forwards who setup the plays and passed the ball into (hem. This fellow was of the opinion that an all-state team needed the best of he tall boys, able to dunk in the roints and rebound the ball. But n, addition . the ' all-state team needed its share of boys who could dribble the ball through an all- court press, handle the ball well enough to protect that narrow lead at the end of the game, and boys lhat could hit consistently from outside against a zone defense, and boys that could drive to the basket against a man to man defense. T And further, the gentleman in question held that defensive' play out front was an invaluable asset to an all-state' team. He said, he doubted If Pine Bluff's Jim Reed, Texarkana's Clint Otwell, or almost any of th,e other seven centers could do an adequate" job of sistent to us, and of the college coaches that we've talked to all concur on the idea, Is the close calling of fouls under the basket in high school games By calling fouls at the slightest contact in the battle for rebounds the taller boy is given an artificial advantage to fo along with his physical advantage over the short boy. That was'a thing that hurt Fay- ettevllle seriously in the tournament. But the big thing about that interpretation "of the rules is the abrupt transition that awaits high school players when they go out for college basketball. One coach stated that almost without exception the new boys that show up at his school want to quit after a couple of days under a baske' with Ihe varsity boys. "They just don't understand what is happening lo them. I've seen a lot of good boys that never were able to convert their play to the rugged, every-man-for-himsclf style of rebounding found in college."' . And the concensus, as we've found it, is that fouling rules under the basket should be relaxed $ little in high school in order to remove Ihe additional advantages lhat these calls give lo Ihe tall 3oy. defense out front, Or oil a mah- lo-man basis at a position olher lhan Ihe post. This was answered by the re- nark that the coaches who select Ihe-learn could hardly bass by a player like Mpnticeib's Dale Las"- sil'er, who was the mo'sl valuable nan on his team, In favor of some orward who did not figure In the scoring too well, or whole team ailed to advance to the finals of he tournamenl. As we said -- we don't know whats' right. We'd be happy to go along on the theory that centers, if voted for as forwards, could fill in at that position. Bill we are hard pressed lo believe lhal any of Ihem (Bass Trumbo cxccpled) could lake over a guard spol $nd play lhat position well. In other words, we'd give the A.A.A. a team composed of four big centers and a guard and take a pajr of big boVs for ourselves, Russ McConnell, .of FayetteVille, or a Claudie. Eubaoks, of Jjivaca, and bet that we'd win no4t of th'e time. . _Anolher thing that sgemi incon Officials Work Game From Sidelines; Call Ejpciimei,, A Success .Baltimore-(/P)-Two ' basketball officials who refereed the first half of the Baltimore-Milwaukee game last night while perched on lentil* judges' chairs agree it has some good possibilities. ' ' Charley Eckman and Julie Myers of the National Basketball Association's staff, called the game as the-Bullets defeated Milwaukee 91-BO. ' ' Eckman thoughl Ihe idea of gelling officials of the court had some merit Myers, who really wenl (or the plan, said "t thought il worked wonderfully well. It could rivolu- lionize the sport. We may have missed some unimportant fouls but We caught" every importanl one." He said there were a couple of blind spots but that these could probably, bf eliminated by putting chairs opposite foul lines instead of at the corners. ^ While Eckman. and Myers tooted their whittles'from the'lawn chalft, a third official-went-ont the hardwoods for jiihip ballj o when t (oul was called. taking nim ,, ihoTu "'.« h BScho01 » flnc M ^'^ center, i, show, $ f, ,,?.rri J i M , ,'" "° BCrs Ean:e a *" insl nne n i u f f - Cable B r .

NCAA Comes Up With New Plan Of TV Control New York-W-The National Colleslate Alhlcllc Association (NCAA) has formulated plans for a new controlled video program Ihnl will prevent a small group of ·ollogcs from monopolizing the "'-vision networks In football this fall. The NCAA's TV committee met for the first time yesterday and recommended spreading t h e games on the widest basis possible. It also proposed two principles to aid In carrying out the program: 1. The widest possible participation by colleges in the 1952 program so that no one college or a small group of colleges will dominate football television during IB52. ; 2. The much greater participation of smaller colleges in the program. The committee stressed the dangers to the game of football it t few of the top teams are able to monopolize the video networks, "The resulting financial rewards would create far greater temptallons ihah any yet known to the game and would place irresistible premiums on developing winning teams," the committee aald In a statement.
