■ DALLAS (AP) — An NCAA com-
miitee agreed Monday to postpone

“However, in the present climate
of serious allegations and doubts
about the integrity of the SMU foot
ball program, the institution would
be further embarrassed to pursue
the appeal at this time,” Kliever told
the NCAA panel.
Last week, former SMU line
backer David Stanley said in a tele
vision interview that he got $25,000
to play for the Mustangs when he
joined in 1983 and continued to get
payments of $750 a month even af
ter the school was placed on proba
tion last year.
Hitch and other athletic officials
have denied the allegations, but
SMU President L. Donald Shields
has said he will call a special board of
governors meeting to discuss a plan
If Stanley’s claims prove true,
SMU could lose its football program
for two years under the NCAA’s so-
called “death penalty” adopted last
Last year’s sanctions against SMU
were levied because of cash pay
ments to players by boosters and
other NCAA violations. The school
was banned from offering any schol
arships during the first year of a
three-year period and limited to
only 15 out of an allowable 30 schol
arships the second year.
On Sept. 1, SMU submitted an ap
peal to the NCAA committee for
limited relief from the scholarship
restrictions for the 1987-88 aca
In Kansas City, Hitch confirmed
he met with NCAA officials but
would not comment on the meeting.

WHEN IS THE RIGHT TIME TO
CALL YOUR GRANDPARENTS?
a) Five minutes into “The Lawrence Welk Show’.’
j " " ' ' = ■- , , .... .. .
b) About a week before your birthday.
c) When you just want to tell them you miss
them, and that you ate the last of Grandma’s
chocolate-chip cookies this morning.
There's nothing grandparents like better than a call from a grandchild
in college. But if you do accidentally happen to interrupt Lawrence, you
ought to have something worth telling them.
For example, you could mention that you called using
AT&T Long Distance Service because you can depend on AT&T's
high quality service and exceptional value.
And then you can tell them that AT&T gives you
immediate credit if you dial a wrong number.
And that you can count on AT&T for clear
long distance connections.
Finally, of course, ^
you should quickly
reassure them that
you're eating enough,
then let them hurry
back to the TV to
catch the rest of the
Lennon Sisters' Blue
Oyster Cult Medley.
