Since the AAM cadet corps Is Ule only school In the conference capable of putting on the pro- game show, It Is Imped that all students on the campus will co operate in making the spectacle a success.

The advisability of singing “The Twelfth Man” was dis cussed earlier this week.

"A* l«***l well he In the open then," he *ay*. ’• Coach Dutch Meyer of T#xa» Christian deplored the pressure put on an athlete, “m running these boy* cra»y, H he asserted. “The folks won't leave them alone. This I* the biggest evil. I don’t think any school I* paying an athlete more than the rules allow but it’s i the outside Intereits—the alumni." Meyer also hit at the practice of firm* paying athlete* so much per month "to he their representa ; tive* on the campus.” Matty Bell of Southern Metho- , dist said this pnertice was preva- j lent but that he saw nothing wrong with It. However, he did say he thought fhe pressure put on the athletes and the work of outsider* in giving boy» money or other things of value to attend a school were had. Coach Blair Cherry of the Uni versity of Texas Said the situation waa getting out of hand and that a commissioner with the power of a Judge Landis in baseball was needed to prevent, a big “blow up" in Southwest Conference athle tic*. He declared a man empow ered to make investigation*, hold hearings and exact penalties was necessary to prevent alumni and others outride the schools getting the athletes for the highest bid*. Cherry was particularly bitter against tactics which he said were followed by some of Texas' oppo nents in approaching it* athletes and "knocking Ute - school" with the idea of making them dissatis fied. Basketball coach Jack Gray of the University of Texas said “an athletic scholarship won't get an athlete now. They ean get more at other schools.” Athletic director Ralph Wolf of Baylor took a somewhat different view from the others. “Why doesn’t everyone practice what he preaches?" he asked. “What’s wrong with schools going after! athlete* anyway? I believe In free coaches i enterprise. What If there Is tom- let 1 petition? Let's put It on the fom- petitiv* basis." Wolf declared the only way to cut out the so-called evllg of re cruiting was for the atMetie di rector* ta get together and agree that they would be stopped. The others agreed with him on this. Nealy said the schools themselves could handle the matter of the alumni or other outsiders making offer* to athlete*. “Any srhool ran stop It If It will juat tell the outsider* to quit," Neely declared, apparently Implying that some of Yell Leaders Urge, Sportsmanship At Initial Practice Last night heard the return of yell practice. The organised confusion, the spaghetti-like confetti and the jokes were the same as always, the only missing factor being the An nex-stationed freshmen and their abundant yelling. Growing like an army rumor, an estimated crowd of SjOOO student* gathered for the -»**!on of yell*, singing him! pel’ talks. A serious note was the plea hy yell leader Dutch Hartman for all 4g«4ea te step rheertnx while the uppoelng team la la the huddle. The next regularly scheduled yell practice will be held tumor row night. Ballinger have refused to but the game will be played as scheduled, league president How ard Green said today, - Green said the umpires said they would not report because they felt they did not havu adequate police protection. The umpires said they had “threatened hy a few ful funs" following game in which Big Spring Ballinger 5-3, Green *aid..

BibU of the University of Texas said there was need for a definite and uni form policy all over the United States. “1 believe ia helping the boys who art ta need hut we should have a definite policy and stick to it," he said. The conference rule allows a school to give a hoy his tuition and fees. If he takes a job he must work a minimum of 160 hours a year for which he may receive hoard and room and $4.00 per month for laundry.
