Brownwond High School has just
closed one of the best basket ball
season sho has ever had In her en-
tire history. Out of fifteen games
played the locals hare emerged vic-
tors in twelve of tho contests. Two
games were lost to a single rival
Btepbenvllle and the other game to

BrownWood 's star forwards was sick

GRID RULE CHANGES '

that will enable the playera to get

the code all intended to speed up the
gamo and Increase Its versatility are
of special interest.
-The abolition of all mud or arti-
ficial kicking toes tho advancement
of the klckoff from tho 40-year line
to the center of the field 'an. Increase
of two to flvo yards of the penalty
for excess time out and decision to
try for point after touchdown from
the three yard lino Instead of from
tho flvo yardj line aro the most Im-
portant measures that were approved.
A large number of others weie made
to clarify rules often' misinterpreted.
' Despite a recommendation by the
Coaches' Association that the rule
against the flying tackle be abolished
on the ground that It is seldom en-
forced the committee after a lengthy
dtseusjon decided to leave the rule
as it is.
The elimination of kicking teo will
not forbid "heeling" the ground 'to
make a grore on the klckoff or
place kick will be permitted under
the new rule.
The rale permitting three "time
outs" durlna- the half with two yard
