ward Pass to Line of Scrimmage
Tiie Ameiican intercollegiate foot
ball rules committee finally adopted
Saturday new playing rules for TJtXi.
The committee has attempted to
"open" the game wherever possible

ness ana nrutaiity. At the same time

some semblance of the game as it has
been played in this country during the
past several years.
One of the principal changes doubles
the distance to be gained in three
downs, 10 yards now beings required
of the team 0:1 the offense, instead of
five as heretofore. Forward passes
are to Le allowed and wherever a for
ward pass crosses the goal line it shail
count as a touch back. Reforms in
the methods of tackling, holding and
iiUcTl'e rence have been provided and
penalties lor fouls have been severely
stiffened. Six men only are to be on
the line of scrimmage. A central board
of control is to pass upon the compe
tency of all game officials. More pow
er is glvc-u game officials and it is pro
vided that there shall be a referee,
two umpires and a line man in all
games of first importance.
