; IN HOOP RULES
Alterations Will Make Game
Faster: Dribble Meets
Several changes were made in the
1920-21 basketball rules al the annual
' meeting ol the rules committee. The
altering lends to make the play fast
er and glws the officials a better line
on calling fouls.
One of the most important changes
occurs m the dribble In the past the
athlete with the ball has taken two or
I three short stepR before Ftarting the
dribble and it has made it difficult
I for the official to decide whether ll
I was a dribble or If the player was run
ning with the ball
DRIBBLE IS CHANGED
There wont's be anv opportunity tor
the official to ;iet into this fix this
'year fcr the new rule Igys: "A player
who Is standing still when he r c lv
!he ball may -tart a step In snj dlteo
lion, but he must dispose of the ball
before that foot touches he fldbr,"
(that is, in starting a dribbl the ball
I must leave the possession of the play
er before he has taken a step.
A mollification in the rule covering
advancing the ball is. "A player who
( hnnues his position without apprecifl
I bly advancing the ball in m direction
shall not be considered as running
' with the ball "
The basketball rules commit iee of
which Joseph E. Raycioft is chairman,
has Issued Its report Bnd has been
published in the annual A G Spalding
' Brothers' guide, copies of the 1920-21
, book having been received In Ogden
BLOCKING RULE STRONGER.
The rule against blocking is to b-;
strongly Interpreted and enforced the
coming season on the following basis:
"The defensive player has no right to
place bis hand upon the person wnom
he is guarding In order to keep more
closely in touch with him and so as to
be able to anticipate and check the le
gitimate play of his opponent No
has he the right to dance in front of
him in order to obstruct bis progress
He may run Alongside of him in an
effort to get the ball first, but neither
player in such a contingency has the
right to crowd the other away from
the direct line to the ball '
Provision has been made "for the
throwing up on the free throw line a
ball that is declared held under the
basket or in the space behind the
blackboard and between the fcul lines
This will prevent a certain amount
of crowding and Jockeying, which has
become habitual In connection with
balls thrown up close to the goal "
This year a player ma re-enter the
game after having been taken out as
tho following will testify: "A player
who has left the game except for dls
qualification for four personal fouls
or for other disqualifications, may re
enter the game once This is In line
With the practice that has been found
so useful in football, and tends to make
it easier for the team that is traveling
with a small number of substitutes."
Wlun a referee feels that ihe other
players are crowding in on the two
athletes jumping for the throwup ball,
he has the authority to declare an
"open zone" so thai tho two players
may be' able to get the ball cleanly
Chairman Raycroft, in his explana
tion of the rules, says: "It is strongly
desired to check the growing tendency
on the part of some officials to
overlook fouls that are cleverly com
mit ted and that are not always ap
parent to the ordinary spectator, but
: which serve lo give Ihe player com
' milting the foul an Illegal advantage
lover his opponent It is relatively easy
I for an official to call a foul that Is
open and flagrant, and the temptation
' Is strong to Ignore those that are elev
I erly concealed from all but a few who
' sre favorably situated and watching
Nothing is more Important from the
point of iew of good sport and tho
' best interests of the game, than that
i the official should fearlessly combat
this growing tendency by the prompt
and strict penalties. Officials can de
pend on the heavy co-operation of the
rules committee In their el forts to
stamp out this illegal 'inside play'."

Most of them we-re office-seekers and
Claimants for political favor and they i
spent long hours waiting lo tell Gen

they helped him In his ascendency and I
why the-y should be rewarded. Their
number were so great that the president-elect
was at his office seven
hours a duy, seven days a week ana 1
most of that time was consumed In a
patient hearing of claims
Following an arduous campaign
which culminated In his overwhelming

Avcnlda Madciao, where his Candida-!
cy was conducteel. Th' office, small
at best, was divided by a cloth par-!
tltlon Into a private sanctum for tho
general and compact working quarters'
for his severul secretaries.
Outside there were several ante-
chambers which, from 0:30 o'clock In'
the morning, when the president-elect,
arrived to work, until 7 o'clock at
nlffht, with a couple of hours allowea'
for lunch, were crowded with people.
There were numerous doors to pass
before the Inner chamber Is entered,
ami at each stood two guards, who
ciuestloncd closely all comers. Those
with apparent legitimate reasons for

it is said, to abolish the practice and

But hundreds who gathered outside
