Ttr toij, year. , Ing periQd of play. Another radical, change !3 that gov erning the .flying tackle. This is eliminated by the new ruling, which jwav-ldea thM: a -playef .ihiuai. have at least one foot on .'the -ground when he tackles an opponent. The,, new legislation governing the forwan' pass, which a number of experts were inclined to abolish, will materially alter the play and aspect of the game. This year's rules provide that a player is only qualified to receive a forward nass who s at least one yard back of his own line of scrim mage, or occupies a position on the end of said line. No man may make a forward pass or kick the ball unless- five yards back of the Itge of scrim mage. The territory forward of the line cf scrimmage, consequently In the enemy's camp, is adjudged neutral for a distance of twenty yards pending the completlohof a forward pass or kicks. The forward pass Is not. legal f the ball crosses the line twenty yards in advanec of the spot where it was put in play before .touching the ground or a player. In case of a kick the piayers on the defense within the twenty yard zone must not interfere withthe end or other players, in any way until the opponents have ad vanced twenty yards beyond the line of scrimmage. Interlocked Interference, that, is, players of the side having the ball taking hold of each other, or using their hands or arm to grasp their team mates in any way, Is forbidden. and it is also forbidden for any man on the side having possession of the ball to push or null in any way the man running with the ball. Another innovation is in regard to the substitution of players during the jme. A rule was adopted which provides that a player who has been removed for any cause except dis qualification or suspension may be re turned to the game once at the begin ning of any subsequent period. The longitudinal lines formerly marking the field are done away with, as the quarterback may now cross the line of scrimmage at any point. The now rules have already been adopted by all the large colleges, nearly all being represented on the rules committee, consisting of L. M. Dennis, of Cornell: E. K. Hall, of Dartmouth: James A. Babbitt, of Haverford; JohnC. Bell, of the Uni versity of ' Pennsylvania; Crawford Blagden, of Harvard; Walter Camp, of Yale; Paul J. Ashlll, of Annapolis; W. O. Dudley, of Vanderbllt; Parke H.
