New College Rules . . Crisler Makes Four Suggestions

College football coaches can pre-
vent the new unlimited substitutions
rule from dragging out the game,
H. 0. (Fritz) Crisler, president of!
the American Football Coaches as-
sociation, announced last week.
Tlie rule allows coaches to sendf
players into the game as often as
they wish. In a letter addressed to
400 coaches, Crisler, athletic director
and football coach at the University'
of Michigan, suggested four means
by which his fellow tutors of theI
game could make the rule work. -
He urged application of the rule
permitting only 25 seconds for the
offensive'team to get its play under
way even, when substitutions were
being made.
With application of the 25-second
rule, Crisler said the coaches could
prevent substitutions from slowing

Sthe game if they follow these propus-
"1. Have players who are likely to
he substituted seated in front rows
near the coach,
"2. Players should be ready with
"3. Players should be sent in at
the instant the ball is declared dead
and time stopped, as on out of
bounds, incomplete pass, etc., un-
less you desire to be charged with a
time out.
"4. Talk over substitutions with
your captain before the game and
have the latter inform the officials
he will accept all substitutions, if
that agreement has been reached."
Crisler said the substitutions rule
was a "good one" and that: "It
will enable us to protect the tired
player. It is true it will help the

stronger teams as well as the weak.
It can be shamefully abused by mak-
ing games drag."
The game, players, coaches, and
spectators will profit, he added, if
"the spirit of the new rule is respec-
ted by not prolonging contests."
Bucks Are Grid Sheiks
COLUMBUS, Ohio, Sept. 29.--None
of the experts have as yet seen fit
to name the 1941 Ohio State Univer-
sity football squad as the best in the
country but there seems to be little
doubt that the squad will be among
the country's best-dressed gridders.

Iowa roster, but he is no Nile Kinnick.
He can punt better than anybody in
the conference and his passing will
stand tip under careful scrutiny, but
his running game is woefully 'weak.
No Triple Threats
Tom Farmer and Bob Bender will
be .on the sidelines to supplement
Youel, but both leave just a little to
be desired if they are to fill the im-
portant left half post in the Hawks'
lineup. Farmer can pass and run, but
can't kick. Bender is in the same
boat, but his flinging surpasses Far-
mer's while his running is a shade
lower. Youel will get the call because
of his superior booting and defensive
The best Iowa halfback with the
ball nestled in the crook of .his arm
is Buster Mertes, the flashy riglat
half. A bruising blocker, Mertes,
however, needs more confidence be-
fore he can supply the Hawkeyes with
another running threat besides
Once more directing the Iowans
from the quarterback position will
be Al Coupee. One of the best in the
Big Ten, Couppee has added 15
pounds to his frame which will be of
considerable aid to his blocking.
Two Sophomores
Of the sophomore backs only two,
Jack Kennedy and Ben Trickey, look
like Western ,'Conference material.
Green and Mertes will be pass-re-
ceiving threats, with Youel doing the
tossing. The two ends, Parker and

Burkett, have yet to show any dan-
ge'ous ability in hauling down sail-
ing pigskin, but Anderson has been
drilling them and they may surprise
If Anderson goes by his past meth-
ods, the spectators will be treated to
an aerial attack supplementing
Green's line bucking. The men to
watch in the Iowa backfield will be
Green and Youel, the one handling
the running burden while the other
wiil take care of aerial lanes.
Few Substitutions
And if Dr. 'Eddie lives up to his
past reputation, few Iowa substitu-
tidns will be seen. During his tenure
at the Hawkeye school, Anderson, of
necessity, has averaged only 23 men
per contest, which is mighty low for
a 60 minute game of Big Ten football.
With weak reserve material and a
veteran first team full of vast poten-
tialities, it looks like the Iowans are
going to stick by their nickname, the

Somebody whistles a few bars of a catchy tune.
Others pick it up.
Soon the whole country's whistling it. It's a hit.
Somebody lights up a cigarette.
Likes it. Passes the word along.
Soon the whole country's smoking it.

At last, here's a double duty shirt that
serves you equally well as a sports
shirt or as a regular shirt. The trick is
in the low-band, long-pointed convert.

The Doubler Shirt has two button-
thru pockets and a French seam front. The fabric is
oxford or twill flannel. . . both durible and San-
forized-Shrunk (shrinkage less than 1%). You'll
have practically two comfortable and smart shirts for
the price of one. In white and solid colors.

The big thing that's pushing Chesterfield ahea
Is the approval of smokers like yourself.
Chesterfields are definitely Milder,
Cooler-Smoking and Better-Tasting.
They're made of the world's best cigarette tobaccos
Blended just right to give you more smoking pleasurd,
But even these facts wouldn't count
If smokers didn't just naturally like then,.
Once a smoker finds out from Chesterfield
What real smoking pleasure is, nothing else Wi
