one down was utilized before puntlnjr

t This year teani with the ball near
, tia own coal line will be able to rush
twice before resort! nc to a punt, while
In the middle of . the field the ball can
rhe rushed three tiroes. At the same
time a forward pass, heretofore eus-
tomarytonly on the second down will
probably be tried this year In the ma
jority of cases only on the third down.
'as a consequence there will be fewer
forward paaaea,' fewer punta and a
great deal more, real football of the
actual rushing kind,.
Depends on Back Field,
T Whether or not this actual rushing
.will be of the old style line bucking
type, minus the' element ot mass play,
or of the kind which la more spectacu
lar and productive of greater advances
when : successful, known as - end run
ning, dependa altogether on the kind of
back field a team has Certainly a
team that possesses good Interfering
and speedy backs will not resort to the
i alow and lw earing method of penetrat
ing the line of defense as long as Its
speed and Interference will succeed In
j circling ends. At the same time a team
'.with af heavy back field capable of
jj smashing a line, bat slow In rounding
r the extremes, will play safe and do a
lot of etralgbt and cross bucking. Un
, der these circumstances there will be
many games played in which one team
will play opea and run wide and the
other team will smash the line. In this
! respect it may he remarked that ordl
: sarlly a line bucking team with heavy
becks will be more fitted to counteract
Use plunging on the part of the op
.penents than It will to defend against

fore line smashing sooner than It will
against end running.
From what has been said It Is safe
to conjecture that the year will see two
distinct classes of teams, one with a
line smashing offense and the other
with an end running offense. To de
fend successfully against these the de
fenses will have to be altered to suit
the cases. The team that can combine
the two offenses and ' has material
enough to develop both lines of attack
la the team to be feared, as the reten
tion of the "forward pass will weaken
the line as heretofore In the matter of
defense, and It will take a defense pos

The change in the rule regarding the
forward pass will make little difference
except Inasmuch aa the allowing or me

any degree of accuracy, and when it
does go much over that distance it is
very unlikely that a man will be there
to receive It- "
There Is no doubt that considerable
forward passing will be done, although
not as much as in past years. The play
will be retained by all teams as a
means of-building up systems qf for
mation and will also be utilized a great
deal on the third down, but the third
down will not come as often aa the
second down did under last year's
code, and for this reason the play will
lose much of Its popularity. -
The eliminating of the twenty yard
limit haa made possible also the elimi
nating of the field Judge. This is a great
benefit. It makea the number of com
petent officials mors" possible to aecure

The throwing out of the Hilda aide
makea the game more sclentlflo than
lucky. This is a cood more.
has been rue that football was ret
ting to depend on luck more than on
science. Such a state of affairs has
naturally been detrimental to the
game, as sport lovers In general like
science. As It Is, there will be plenty
of the element of luck present, but a
poor team cannot go in now. as here
tofore, with the Idea In view of taking
long chances and getting away with
them. This year. punting will be per
fected as far as possible, and with the
field shortened the possession of a good
punter will be a great asset, while his
work will be of such a type that it will
be recognized and credit given for It
by the close students of games.
But While the science of punting will
be favored the science of drop kicking
and piaffe kicking will receive a set
back. With a touchdown and a kicked
goal counting seven points It will take
three field goals to get any advantage
at all after the opposing team has reg
istered a touchdowp and Its accom
panying goal Consequently fewer at
tempts will be made for goals from the
field, and for the first time In years
this science VlU begin to show signs
Outside of the necessity of the ten
yard zonea on each end of the field for
forward pass purposaa the compelling
of these zonea fills a long felt neces
sity. For a long time gamea that have
been played on small fields and In base
ball parka have been handicapped by
the goal lines being as close as three
and sometimes less yards from the
spectators. The result haa been that
although a team has pushed the ball
across the goal line at a point near the
aide line it haa often been hindered
In carrying it behind , the posts, and as
fa result the attainment of the extra
point haa been made more difficult. In
juries have also resulted from contact
pi the rushers with fences or. the spec
tators, so that this zone at eaeh end of
the field will work to more advantage
While the above consideration of the
changes stated practically covers every
point that has been altered, the general
result of these alterations has only been
considered specifically in reference to
the offense. The off ense is the easiest
department to work on this year; as Jt
has practically every advantage In the
way of attack, as it had last year,' the
eliminating of the onside kick .being
more than made up for by the allowing
of four downs and the throwing oat of
a limit (On the forward pass., There
fore, the place where the changes will
be felt most Is in the defense, where
more situations will have to be provid

caches everywhere are plan
tending mot of the early sa
son work on defense, and until torn
of the results of their efforts become
kaown It cannot be prophesied with
a4y degree of certainty whether the of
fepse under the new rules can be suc
cessfully defended against. As the
rules were made for .the purpose of
keeping the prestige with the big teems
this point is what Is worrying the
coaches at the larger schools, and !t
will probably keep worrying them uat'l
the smaller gamea are past.
i Eight Men en the Line.
It seems now that the style of de
fense will resolve into eight men en
the line, ends playing wide, with ru&s)
llne halfbacks again qpinlng into serv
ice, the tackles and guards being made
responsible for the middle of the line
and the center being pulled out of
pjace'.to back up. One man will prob
ably be' consldere'd sufficient protection ..
In the forward pais zone, and the usuai
one man will be back for punts, betas
assisted on fourth down by the full'
back, who will be pulled 1 away from
his point about fifteen yards behlnJ
It the rush line tailbacks can get La v
fast enough to make the t! crowing. t
forward passes precarious this defense
will suffice, and someh of t like
ly will be used. It U to be douMtd Jfv
more than one man will be v.sed
back up, as some teams did last year,
for the almple reason that an extrt
man cannot be spared for that pur
pose, Neither does it ssem that tAre -than
one man canbe spared for waUh
ing forward passci. ' "
If so many mett' can be sparM fo
the line of defense' the line bucilng;
minus v the assistance of mass play,
will cause little concern to a defense
of this sort and at the same time' there
