Although the National Collegi-
a'te Athletic Association made most
of the headlines this week with
their rule change regarding punts,
a potentially more important de-
velopment involved the report giv-
en to 'the rules committee by Dr
Richard C. Schneider, professor in
the department of neuro-surgery
Dr. Schneider's presentation was
related to neck and back injur-
Les in football, according to Wiles
Hallock, connected with the pub-
licity bureau of the NCAA in Kan-
1 sas City, Mo.
His research report included a
film showing actual football in-
juries and fatalities as they oc-
curred, in addition to slides and
oral commentary on the subject.
A .Serious Problem
"We were very impressed by Dr.
Schneider's dedication to his own
particular field of neuro-surgery,
and also with the thoroughness of
his research, and the seriousness
of the problems which he pointed
out," Hallock said yesterday.
"Speaking ;for myself, it is the
very first time I've seen this kind
of film which he has put together,
and it was very well done," Hal-
lock continued. "The illustrations
of techniques causing injuries, and
the completeness of his documen-
tation were .especially striking."
A representative of the Associat-
ed Press in Phoenix, Ariz., noted
'that the report given by Dr.
Schneider caused much reaction
among the rules committee mem-

Some dangerous practices were
specifically pointed to in the pres-
entation, Hallock said. He noted
that "stick blocking" and "clothes-
lining" were alluded to by Dr.
"Stick blocking" is the practice
of employing the helmet to take
would-be tacklers out of a play.
"Clotheslining" refers to a tackl-
ing technique in which the defend-
er uses an outstretched arm, hit-
ting the ball carrier in the neck
Hallock described "spearing" as
another hazardous practice men-
tioned by Dr. Schneider. This is
the method by which a member of
the defensive team attempts to
dislodge the ball from the runner's
grasp by ramming it with his
"Dr,. Schneider spoke very re-
spectfully of the work which the
rules committee has done previ-
ously in this area," Hallock re-
marked. "One of the big problems
is to obtain stricter enforcement

On Tuesday, the NCAA passed
two resolutions in the general area
of Dr. Schneider's study. The first

Hallock reported that the con-
tent centered around gridiron

coaches should be aware. "Dr.
Schneider has done much experi-

Slated as an exhibition encoun-
ter; the meet-that-isn't-a-meet
will not only provide resting time
for Coach Newt Loken's undefeat-
ed team, but will also provide a
launching pad for the Michigan
Wolverines' outstanding all-around
man the last three years, placing
second in the Big Ten in 1966.
Among the freshmen, particular
stress "was placed on the flock of
boys who were outstanding per-
formers last year at their respect-
ive high schools. Canadian Sid
Jensen, who performs on the long
horse, high bar, and parallel bars,.
was first in' Canada this year in
the first of these events; while
teammate Gary Balcombe placed
second. * ,
Another freshman, Ron Rap-
per of Skokie, Illinois, was state
runner-up on the parallel bars
last year, but has already display-
ed considerable improvement since
his admittedly fine high school
career.- At the Fort Lauderdale
Winter Clinic this past December,
Ron captured a first place in the
unofficial meet, edging out varsity
standouts from all over the coun-
try-including perennial national
contender Southern Illinois.
Other frosh stars in Loken's
galaxy are horsemen Mike Car-
penter and Jim DeBoo, high bars-
man Ray Timm, Dave Ruttenberg
on parallel bars, and transfer stu-
dent Charlie Froeming on rings,
Of Froeming, Loken said that he
was "ready to join the varsity to-
day-and do as well as many of
the boys we have competing now."

igan squad? Well, little can be

exhibitional nature of the event.
Coach Loken, who has worked
out a unique scoring method for
the match with Western Coach
Fred Orlofsky, outlined the plans
at a practice session Thursday
Adding to the Excitement
"To provide interest in the meet,
the scored of our freshmen will be
added to those of the Western
Michigan boys, and compared
against those of our varsity. This
way, not only will the meet be
more interesting, but we'll be able
