Putting Ball In Play From Out Of Bounds

If the ball goes out of bounds, whether it bounds back or not, a player of the side which secures it must bring it to the spot where the line was crossed, and there walk out with it at right angles to the side-line, any distance not less than 5 nor more than 15 yards, and at that point put it down for a scrimmage, first declaring how far he intends walking.

Suggestion. - Time is not out when the ball goes out of bounds, so all the men on the defense, when the ball is being brought in, should watch out for a quick play or a long pass.
