DECATUR HERALD BASKETBALL, OTHER SPORTS CLASSIFIED ADVERTISING Two Sections 18 Pages Decatur, Illinois,' Monday, January 18, 1 965. Pages 9 to 18 College Grid Rules Amended To Permit More Substitution Fort Lauderdale, Fla., , Jan. 17 (AP) College football was returned today to an honest, two-platoon system that will eliminate the freakish innovation of last season the deliberate, stop-the-clockfouL After three days of debate, file Football Rules Committee of the National Collegiate Athletic Association adopted a substitution rule that will permit platooning after the ball changes hands, between periods and after any score. Two substitutes may enter the game at any time under the new rule which comes very close to restoring the free and unlimited substitution in effect prior to 1953. Jack Curtice, chairman of the American Football Coaches Rules Committee, said the vote was "as close as pressed ham" between the rule that passed and another proposal to remove all bars to free substitution. 'Fin Rule' "I believe I can speak for coaches in general in saying Gumey Wins In Ford At Riverside Riverside, Calif., Jan. 17 (AP) Dan Gurney of Costa Mesa, Calif., won the fatality-marred 500-mile $65,000 Motor Trend road race for late model stock cars today before 61,474 fans at Riverside Raceway. Three' accidents drew screams of horror from the crowd. A fork lift truck plowed into spectators, killing one man and injuring four other persons. A car driven by A. J. Foyt of Houston, Tex., last year's Indianapolis 500 champion, flipped off the track and overturned. Another car driven by Ned Jarrett of Camden, S.C., caught fire. Foyt suffered chest injuries. Jarrett was not hurt. Killed when the Foyt vehicle ran over him was Ronald Eugene Pickle, 20, of San Diego. Gurney, 33, driving a 1965 Ford, was timed in 5:41.42, av eraging 87.708 miles per hour. Second was Junior Johnson of Ronda, N.C., in a 1965 Ford. He was 27 seconds back of the leader. Third one lap back was Marvin Panch of Daytona Beach, Fla., in a 1965 Ford. Foyt, 30 escaped with a cut hand when his 1965 f ord skio-ded off the track and down an embankment at the ninth turn. His car flipped end over end a counle of times and came to rest on its wheels. The mishap occurred on the 170th lap of the 185-lap race. Fovt was in fourth position at the time and had been leading the race earlier. Fourth in the race was Darel Dieringer of Charlotte, N.C., in a 1965 Ford, three laps back. Eight laps back in fifth place was the 1964 Mercury driven by Eddie Grey of Gardena, Calif., with relief driving by Bill Meyer, also of Gardena. Gene Davis of Santa Monica, Calif., was sixth in a 1964 Mercury, followed by Scottie Cain of Fresno, Calif., 1964 Mercury; Sam Stanley of Newhall, Calif., 1964 Mercury; W. S. (Buck) Baker of Charlotte, N.C., 1964 Dodee. and Jerry Grant of Kent, Wash. 1963 Ford. HARRIS PRESIDENT OF ARCHERY CLUB Donald Harris has been elec ted nresident of the Decatur Archery Club.

(AP) The University of Missouri at Rolla scrambled to an 87-81 basketball victory Saturday over MacMurray despite a 38-point performance by MacMurray's Tom Zurkammer of Lincoln, DL that the rule adopted is a fine one," Curtice said. "This comes so near to free substitution that I don't see flow anyone could kick about it. "The only restriction on platooning is that you can't get in a kicking team on fourth down. Our offensive will have to go down under punts. But this might give us even better punt coverage because we've got more speed on our offensive teams." Gimmicks Forced Curtice said most coaches thought last year's rule was pretty good, except for the disgraceful gimmicks they were forced to use to get in defensive platoons on fourth down. That rule allowed platoon sub stitution only when the clock was stopped. Rather than squander a time out, most teams took five - yard penalties for delay, offsides or some other infractions to switch units before punting. Except for this, committee Chairman Ivy Williamson said thcrecord attendance at college games last year attested to the How Top 10 Teams Fared Here's how the Top Ten teams in The Associated Press college basketball poll 'did last week: - 1.

Attendance rose to 23,354,477 a five per cent gain over 1963 and the greatest rise ever recorded in a single year. . - . : , Lest Tinkering The committee did less tink ering with football rules than at any time since 1953, when two-platoon football was outlawed in a revolutionary move. But the substitution debate was controversial enough to keep the members in session three days and took up 90 per cent of then time. The only . other noteworthy changes were a revision of the brutality rule to make ramming of any part of the body with a helmet a personal foul and elevation of kicking tees from one to two inches. The previous brutality rule called for a 15 - yard penalty only for deliberate ramming of the head, face or neck with the helmet. The higher tees will enable the kickers to get more elevation on the ball and "will help the field goal and extra point kickers," Curtice said. .
