Referee Has Jurisdiction of Each Section.
Out of Bounds.
(a) The ball is Out of Bounds when it touches the ground on or outside the side line or side line extended, or when any part of the player who lipids the ball touches the ground on or outside the side line or side line extended.
Suggestion. - When a player is running with the ball and is tackled, or about to be tackled, he should by all means carry the ball across the side-line or out of bounds. This will give his team the advantage of bringing it in fifteen yards instead of being forced into a scrimmage near the side-line.
(b) If the ball is kicked so that it goes out of bounds before crossing the opponents' goal line, it shall belong to the opponents at the point where it crossed the side line. If, however, it strikes any player who is on side and then goes out of bounds, it shall belong to the player who first obtains possession of it.
