to the Rules Committee Saturday five recommendations for changes aimed primarily at cutting down excessive fouling and effective ness of the big men The Rules Committee headed by Tony Hinkle of Butler Univer sity will meet Sunday and Mon day The coaches recommended 1 That the first six personal fouls in each half not in the act of shooting carry only a oneshot penalty After ffliese six fouls the oneandone bonus rule goes into effect in which a bonus shot is allowed if the first free throw is made On penalties in the act of shooting two shots will be given as usual 2 That players of both teams be prohibited from touching the ball on rebounds when it is on the rim or in the cylinder the imag inary area above the rim of the basket This is designed bo prevent tapins when the ball is in the particular position and to cut down the easy stuff shots of players like 7foot Wilt Chamber lain of Kansas 3 Out of bounds balls in the backcourt may be taken out at any part of the end line disre garding the 12foot restraining line under the basket now in effect 4 The clock to be stopped on every whistle and time to be re sumed when the ball comes in con tact with a player in bounds This includes time outs when the ball goes outofbounds This recom mendation carries with it the sug gestion that there be no additional opportunities for substitution 5 That the 194758 rule requiring even arid odd numbering of uni forms for home and outoftown games respectively be aban doned The coaches suggestions are normally accepted by the Rules Committee BEATS ATTUCKS Continued from Page 1 tempts

brought a 38yearold Red Munger with him from Hollywood Munger had won 23 and lost only 8 for the coast club so the fresh or rather new Pittsburgh Pirate manager figured he might win a few games for him as well as babysit for the rest of the pitching Well Munger is gone now and the pitching staff still is populated by kiddies under 30 In fact only two athletes on the preseason ros ter are over that age Dale Long and Spook Jacobs both 31 The Pirate youth movement is fine but after all youve got to be reasonable about those things so Bragan looked around for an other baby sitter He found two neitheras old as Munger but with a lot of baseball years behind them They are Bob Kuzava and Paul Minner both 33 and pitch ers and when you add age to a ball club its always a good to add it to the pitching staff Both Kuzava and Minner are and we have noticed Kuzavas name in a couple of lineups this spring indicating Bragan is giv ing him a real chance The big towhead has an in teresting history and although he never won more than 14 games in one season in his life his ca reer is not without notable high lights There was the time for in stance in 1949 when he came within two outs of pitching a no hit game for the White Sox And there was the time or rather two times when he sewed up the de ciding World Series games with some fine relief pitching for the Yankees That was less than four years ago and now he is fighting to comeback to the major leagues af ter spending last year with the Columbus Jets of the Intennafton al League Whether he or Minner makes it or not we wouldnt know butmay Bragan should keep one of them just to ride herd on those romper boys he is using as pitch ers And some mighty good ones xx it might be added BLIZZARD IN Continued from Page 1 on the storm in

use them fre Farrell who came up through the Indians farm ranks said my success in the minors has been trying to work the same kind of formula Ive had good bench ball players and I liked to use The 43yearold Farrell directed Indianapolis to two American Assn pennants jn the past three years winning the little world series last season In 12 minor league seasons Far rell missed a first division

a versatile man who can jump in at more than one po sition and db the job The only way to make sure he does is to keep him from getty rusty Im supposed to be nuts on speed Sure I want speed So do 15 other managers in the major leagues Sometimes though guys with average speed are a lot bet ter ball players than men with great speed Its what they do und er fire that Farrell steers away from any direct rebuttal to suggestion in some American League quarters that the Indians may have more worryholding second from the Detroit Tigers than trying to overhaul the Yankees I know Johnny new Tiger
