A quick look at the major college

The trend in recent years has
een for conference teams to

FIVE MAJOR CHANGES:
'M' Fans To Witness New Grid Rulings Today
By HAL APPLEBAUM
Today's football opener against
Southern California will be in-
teresting in more ways than one.
Not only should the game be a
close one, but for the first time
midwest fans, newsmen, coaches
and players will get a chance to
see the five major rules changes
Last winter the NCAA rules
committee, under the chairman-
ship of Michigan Athletic Director
H. 0. 'Fritz' Crisler, legislated
more major rules changes than at
any time since 1911.
'Probably the most widely dis-
cussed of these new rules has been
the two-post extra-point rule.
Besides this, major changes have
been made concerning blocking,
substitutions, time-outs, and in-
eligible receivers down field on
pass plays. All of these changes
will have' a major effect on col-
legiate football this fall.
Since its conception last winter
the two - point extra - point has
been equally praised and criti-
cized. The rule states that if a
team successfully runs or passes
the ball over the goal line after
a touchdown they are awarded
two points. If they successfully
kick the extra point they receive
one point the same as last year.
The ball is now put in play on the
three yard line instead of the two.
Life Into Game
Crisler has said that this rule
was inaugurated to put some life
into what was becoming football's
dullest.play. Coaches and quarter-
backs are going to have a hard
time deciding whether to go for
the easy point or try to outwit
their opponents and ram the ball
over from the three.
Captain John Herrnstein,
speaking for the team, was quoted
as saying, "The play is going to be
a real challenge to us as players
and for that reason we are all
In last Saturday's major college
action only one game was decided
on the basis of the new rule.
There were, however, many in-
teresting cases when various teams
decided to go one way or the
other at crucial ioments in the
This rule change, while exciting
for the fans and players alike, is
not really more important than
some of the other new legislation.
To the spectators in the stands
these changes may appear to be
minute, but to the players and
coaches they are extremely im-
Most important of these is the
new blocking rule. Previously a
player was allowed to block with
both shoulders and also he could
use his arms if he clasped them
together against his chest. Now
a. blocker is allowed to use only
one arm and shoulder.
This change was brought about
due to the great number of illegal
blocks in the last few years.
Blockers were keeping their hands
clasped, but not against their
chests, and were using them as
clubs. Crisler said, "This rule has
been instituted for the safety of
the players." It will mainly affect
blockers trying to protect the
passer who used to block with
both arms and shoulders head on.1
The specialist will be returning
to football this fall with the new
substitution rule. A player who
starts the game is allowed to go
out and re-enter the game one!
more time each quarter than
previously was allowed. Under this
rule a player can enter a game
three times each period. With this
many substitutions, coaches will
have a greater chance to shuffle
their line up.
This year each team will be
limited to four time outs per half
rather than the five previously
allowed. This is important be-
cause teams only are allowed to
substitute during a time out or
when the clock has stopped for
some other reasons. Teams are
assessed five yards every time
they take an extra time out.
"We shouldn't have too much
trouble with this rule," Ooster-
baan declared, "There are plenty
of times when the clock is stopped
when we will be able to send in
Blocking for Passes
The last major rules change
concerns blocking on pass plays.
Ineligible receivers who block for
the runners are no* allowed- to
go downfield as soon as the ball
is thrown rather than wait until
it was caught as been the rule in

A Hard Choice
THE AVERAGE MALE college student would probably jump at the
chance of becoming an outstanding athlete. Although the 'hours
devoted in'practice are long and tedious, the reward of representing
the University and also the personal glory gained, more than offset
the long hours of toil on the practice field.
But would a coed also want to be a star,'athlete? Most likely not.
The only chance of gaining glory would be in infrequent national or
international meets. The coed athlete would have to be extremely
dedicated to her sport.
CATHY HARTWIG is an outstanding diver who is now in her
second year at the University. It is likely that many students who
are reading this column have not heard of her although, at the present
time, Cathy is nationally ranked with excellent chances of representing
the United States in the Pan American Games in 1959 and the Olympic
Games in 1960.
Cathy is an attractive, vivacious girl and seemingly acts like many
another Michigan coed. However, after talking to her for only a short
period of time, one can soon sense her dedicated attitude which has
helped her carry out a rigorous training schedule and has vaulted
her into the national limelight after only a year, of hard practice.
Perhaps we should start at the beginning when Cathy was attending
high school in Minneapolis. Although .she was a local hero with
thei Junior AAU Lowboard Diving championship to her credit-among
other titles-Cathy was getting nowhere fast. As she so aptly put it,
"I was content. Actually I was afraid to try for the big national
titles because I was afraid of failure. I thought I couldn't go any
further and felt like quitting."
But, thanks to the efforts 9f two Michigan men, Cathy didn't quit.
Dick Kimball, who is now a star "M" diver worked with Cathy and
soon introduced her to his coach, Bruce Harlan. Harlan asked her
to come to. Michigan and the success story soon began.
A Helping Hand ...
H ARLAN AND HIS DIVERS gave Cathy the needed boost to her
sagging spirit. Also, the opportunity of working with another good
woman diver offered the Minneapolis girl needed competition.
'Karla Klump, a New York City diver, also practiced -with the diving
team in hopes of becoming a national champion. Of course the girls
couldn't work out all the time but nevertheless their conditions were
ideal as compared to women divers at many other colleges.
Cathy received .many helpful hints from Harlan and his divers
and performed at her best to date when she finished fourth in the
tower dive (10 meters) in the AAU meet at Kansas City this.last
summer. Cathy also took a seventh in the high board (three meters)
and a ninth in the low board (one meter) at the same meet. The young
diver feels that practicing with the men on the diving team actually
was more of an advantage than practicing with women. "Girls tend
to get tempermental, bicker about little problems and often times
forget about their diving," she states. "The boys were more stable and
concentrated on their diving. They also were more sincere in their
Harlan has a great deal of respect for his latest star pupil. "The
courage and tenacity that she shows is simply amazing. She performs
dives that two-thirds of my male divers won't attempt," he said. "If
anything, Cathy has set an example for the rest of the team," he
continued. "She has been diving off the tower for only a year and
needs to move up only one more notch in the national ratings to win
a berth in the Pan American and Olympic Games. I'm quite sure that
