MONTREAL (A) - The joint
rules committee of the National
Hockey League yesterday came
up with six rule changes for next
Scotty Morrison, NHL referee-
in-chief, announced that the eight-
foot margin lines that separate
players facing off has been re-
duced to six feet.
It is hoped the move will cut
down on the number of delays
caused by overenthusiastic cen-
ters stepping over the margin
lines and being waved off the
face-off by the referee.
Morrison said the new six-foot
distance between the "T" lines
marked on the ice will allow all
players a fair opportunity to face-
off correctly.
He said that with the wider
eight-foot distance separating the
center, a shorter man had been
at a distadvantage and forced to
step across the line and closer to
his opponent to win the draw.
The committee added a rule
which calls for a minor penalty
plus a 10-minute misconduct to
be imposed on any player who

refuses to surrender his stick for
measurement by the referee.
Morrison said this penalty will
prevent the previous practice un-
dertaken by some players who
either broke their sticks or threw
them into the bench or exit area
when challenged by officials.
He said if the latter action
was taken by a player it "shall
also be presumed that the sticks
is illegal and the player shall be
fined an additional $200, the
penalty for the use of an illegal

goaltender pads will be measured
before the start of the season
and again before the play-offs to
determine that they do not ex-

that governs coincidental major
penalties w h e n substitution is
allowed for the penalized play-
ers, the committee went one step

are asseessed under the follow-
ing conditions:
Two players from team A re-
ceived five-minute majors and
one player from team B receives
two five-minute penalties.
.The committee also amended
the existing rule governing the
awarding of a penalty shot.
The change is that if a player,
in possession of the puck and
having no other opponent to pass
than the goalkeeper, is tripped
after he has crossed the center

Hockey great Gordie Howe re-
signed as vice president of the
Detroit Red W i n g s yesterday
amid indications that he will
sign with the Houston Aeros of
the World Hockey Association
for a season as an active player.
Howe announced his decision
at a banquet following his invi-
tational golf meet at Plum Hol-
low Golf Club in Southfield.
Howe said he had telephoned
Red Wing owner Bruce Norris
earlier in the day to announce
his decision.
"I told him not to take this
personally," Howe said. "I'm
not against Bruce. It's the
others. I'd be kind of foolish to
keep on this way. They don't
care what I say anyway, so
there's no usejust hanging on.

CINCINNATI - Bob Gibson of
the St. Louis Cardinals moved
into second place on the all-time
strikeout list and pitched a four-
hitter enroute to a 12-4 victory
over the Cincinnati Reds last
Gibson, 5-6, passed Jim Bun-
ning when he struck out pitcher
Ed Sprague in the second inning
for his third strikeout of the
game and 2,856th of his career.
He finished with nine strikeouts
for a career total of 2,856. Wal-
ter Johnson is the majors' career

more and RBI single by Luis

The Cards put the game away
with a five-run second as Ken
Reitz broke the 2-2 tie with his
fourth homer of the year and
St. Louis added four more runs
off Gullett and Sprague. One

another on his wild pitch.

Sutton sews
allowed six hits and reliever Pete
Richert nailed down the last out,
leading the Los Angeles Dodgers
to a 5-3 victory over the Phila-

no-hitter when Larry Bowa led
off the sixth with a single and
lost his shutout an inning later
when Greg Luzinski blasted his
seventh home run of the season.
Luzinski added a two-run homer
in the ninth, when the Phillies
collected three hits and knocked
