(Second of two articles explaining
some of the basic rules of college ice
hockey. Today's article deals with
types of penalties.)
By HANLEY GURWIN
According to the Official NCAA
Ice Hockey rules, penalties against
individual players are classified as
a Minor Penalty, a Major Penal-
ty, or a Misconduct Penalty.
The Minor Penalty calls for two
minutes in the penalty box, the
Major for five minutes, and the
Misconduct for ten. Only while a
player is serving a *Misconduct
Penalty may a substitute be used
to replace him.
THE EXCEPTION to this rule
occurs when a goaltender is giv-
en a Minor Penalty. In this case,
a teammate designated by the
captain serves the time instead.
The goaltender himself must go
to the penalty box however when
a Major or Misconduct Penalty is
called against him.
Minor Penalties are called for
various infractions of the game
including high-sticking, offens-
ive or defensive interference,
throwing stick, illegal body-
checking, hooking, slashing, trip-
ping, roughing, cross-checking,
High-sticking is carrying the
stick above the height of four
feet from the ice. A player may
not play the puck with his stick
in any manner when the puck is
more than two feet off the ice. A
Major penalty is called if any in-
jury results from improper use of
the stick at any height.
* * * b
A FAIR body-check is one in
which a player with both feet be-
hind the blue line in his Defensive
Zone checks an opponent, who is
in possession of the puck, by using
his hip or body, from the front,
diagonally from the front, or
straight from the side and does
not take more than two fast steps
in executing the check.
It is charging if more than
two fast steps are taken, or if
the check is made from behind
or diagonally behind the oppo-
There shall be no pushing,
charging, or body checking an op-
ponent into the side or end boards
or goal cages, or attempting to do
so. Flagrant violations of-any of
the rules which ordinarily result
in Minor Penalties will be called a
Major, as will fighting, slugging
with the fists or stick, kicking, or
the attempting to do so.
* * *
A MISCONDUCT Penalty con-
sists of ten minutes and is imposed
upon players, when they use foul
or abusive language to an official
or in other ways attempt to in-'
fluence him. It will also be called
when a player persists in disput-
ing decisions or in showing dis-
respect for an official.
No team may be short more
than two men from the ice at a
time. If a penalty is called while
a team already has two others
serving time, then the third
penalty does not begin until one
of the other men comes out of
the penalty box. The third play-
er penalized may not play in the
meantime, but a substitute may
be used until his penalty starts.
Although this does not pertain
to penalties, an explanation of
Western Intercollegiate Ice Hock-
ey League method of determining
point values of hockey games might
be beneficial to many fans.
* * *
Each of the seven teams in the
league meets every other team ei-
ther twice or four times through-
out the season. If the teams meet
on four occasions, then each game'
is worth one point to the winner.
If the teams meet only twice, then
each game counts two points in
the standings. This explains why
total points in the standings can
not be figured out merely by
checking the won and lost records
of the teams.
Of Sub Rules
SARASOTA, Fla.- P)--The
NCAA Football Rules Committee,
after hearing some 40 proposals to
liberalize the limited substitution
rule on college gridirons, turned
them all down yesterday.

creasing favor among the public,

erybody during the 1953 season,"

E. Wieman from the University of

The committee strongly con-
demned the faking of injuries to
stop the clock and the "sucker
shift" which is intended to pull
the opposition offside.
No rules changes were made but
the committee urged the country's
college coaches to eliminate "this
unethical practice from the great
American game for which they
have a primary responsibility."
