Basketball-
Committee
Alters Rules
* KANSAS CITY (P)-The Na-
tional Basketball Rules Commit-
tee Monday changed the bonus
free throw rule to apply to the
full 40 minutes playing time and
widened the free throw lanes from
six to 12 feet.
The bonus free throw revision
will apply to' college, high school,
AAU and YMCA groups repre-
sented on the rules committee,
but the wide lanes will be restrict-
ed to college and AAU teams. The
other groups may use the wider
lanes on an experimental basis.
Other. Changes Noted
The bonus free throw rule was
used during the 1954-55 season. It
awarded a second free throw when
the first one was made in the
first 37 minutes of the game. All
fouls in the last three minutes
were two-shot violations.
H. V. Porter of Chicago, secre-
tary of the committee, also an-
nounced three other changes in
the playing. code for next season.
The most important one is design-
ed to put a curb on stalling by
making the five-second possession
' rule apply to dribblers.
Will End Stalling
"The old rule called for a jump
ball when an offensive player held
onto the ball for five seconds when
within guarding distance - one
yard--of a defensive player," Por-
ter said. "Now the player won't
be able to kill time by dribbling
while within the guarding area."
That particular violation will be
called, according to Porter, if
within the mind of the official the
dribbler is trying to kill time.

Weiland Voted
Coach-of -Year
Ralph "Cooney" Weiland, hock-

Vic Heyliger as the recipient of the
huge cup.

nual National Hockey Coaches
Banquet.

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the third
of three articles presenting an analy-
sis of the comiig NCAA swimming
championships.)
By DON LINDMAN
"Our chances for winning the
NCAA meet are about the same as
they were in the Big Ten Cham-
pionships," says Michigan Swim-
ming Coach Gus Stager, which
means that the Wolverines will be
in the thick of the fight at Ox-
ford, Ohio, the weekend of March
24-26.
Michigan fans have looked for-
ward somewhat gloomily to the,
national championships, figuring
that a crack corps of Eastern
sprinters will cut deeply into the
advantage which the Wolverines
hold over defending champion
Ohio State in those events.
Stager is very much aware, how-
ever, that these same sprinters.
may cost Ohio State several points
in the freestyle relay, possibly,
more than Michigan will lose in
the 50 and 100-yard freestyle
events.

Two Lettermen Return;
Golfers To Tour South

With this fact in mind, Michi-
gan's title hopes brighten consid-
erably, although the Buckeyes will
undoubtedly enter the meet in the
role of favorites.
According to the Wolverine
dopesheet, Jack Wardrop is ex-
pected to balance the points gain-
ed by OSU sophomore Al Wiggins,
while Captain Bumpy Jones should
provide the equalizers to the point
total of, 'the Buckeyes' national
backstroke champion, Yoshi Oya-
kawa.
As has been the case previously
this season, the deciding factors
are then likely to be the relays,
the sprints, and the diving. Yale
rules as favorite in the freestyle
relay, but a strong Michigan en-
try could upset the Eli applecart.
Dartmouth, Iowa, and Michigan
State are other schools which will
be in the thick of the relay race
and could shove the OSU entry
almost out of contention.
Relay Rated A Toss-up
The medley relay will also be a
very tight affair, possibly one of
the closest races of the three-day
meet. North Carolina, Michigan,
and Ohio State are expected to
battle for the top spot, and the
results of this race could go a
long way in determining the final
outcome of the meet.
Michigan's Ron Gora, the Big
Ten 100-yard freestyle titlist, is
expected to run into considerable
trouble from Sandy Gideouse, Rex
Aubrey and Kerry Donovan, of
Yale, and John Glover, of Dart-
mouth, in the national meet. Good
performances from Gora in both
sprint events are necessary if Mi-
chigan hopes to annex the team
crown.
Ohio Divers Strong
Year after Year Ohio State must
be conceded most of the points
in the high and low board diving
events, and this year is no excep-
tion. However, if Michigan's Jim
Walters and Charlie Bates are in
top form the Buckeye monopoly
nay be seriously threatened.
Walters annexed the 1955 Big
Ten low board title, the first in-
terruption in Ohio State's dual
title choke-hold since 1944, and
could conceivably win one or both
of the national crowns."Bates, who
finished sixth in both events at
the Big Ten meet, could easily bet-
ter his perforcmanc2 in the na-
tionals.
