Dates Placed
On11 Agenda
By JOEL BLOCK
The National Collegiate Athletic
Association will decide at its meet-
ing in New York today whether or
not to retain its 1.6 grade point
eligibility rule.
"A vote will be taken in the gen-
eral body of the NCAA after the
Ivy League and other interested
groups present their cases," Michi-
gan Law Prof. Marcus Plant, Pres-
ident of the NCAA, said last night.
"When we emerge from today's
meeting, we will know whether
the 1.6 rule will live in a modified
form or else be dead forever," he
added.
Another major proposal before
the body is a substantial 'change in
the fall football practice starting
dates which the NCAA will set for
member institutions.
"We will try to equalize the
length of pre-season football prac-
tices for schools with different
semester startig dates and differ-
ent schedule starting dates," stated
Plant.
Also Discuss
The NCAA will also discuss
whether it will expect conferences
to impose ineligibility penalties on
individuals when flagrant viola-
tions are involved in a case.
In the past, "The National Col-
legiate Athletic Associations has
never extended its penalty inter-
ests beyond its member institu-
tions," indicated Plant. "Now we
are going to decide if the NCAA.
i should be interested in the student
competitors just as it was interest-
ed in penalizing coaches in a case
last year."
The case Plant was referring to
is the Illinois slush fund scandal
which resulted in firing of three
lini coaches-football coach Pete
Elliott, basketball coach Harry
Combes, and his assistant Howard
Braun.
Central Concern
The question of a 1.6 grade
pont average requirement for ath-
letes is of central concern to mem-
bers of the Ivy League. When the
law was passed, the group as a
whole objected because they claim-
ed an external body shouldn't be
able to rule on academic require-
ments.
Consequently, the Ivy Group was
placed on probation by the NCAA
and are still on probation today.
This probation has meant that
teams from the Ivy League, except
for a few cases, were prohibited

Prof. Plant is also part of the
NCAA delegation to the Senatorial
commission to mediate the long-
standing NCAA-AAU dispute.
When informed that its chairman,
labor-relations expert Theodore
Kheel announced yesterday the
panel would make a "morally-

Plant stated last night, "I have
not met with Mr. Kheel since last
Nov. 10th. I don't know what kind
of decision the commissioner will

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK-Theodore Kheel,
chairman of the special Senate
Arbitration Board, promised yes-

shortly on the long-simmering
AAU-NCAA sports control dispute.
"Our finding will be handed
down before the first track meet,

attorney and widely-know labor
negotiator, said.
Sparks in the bitter war over
control of the nation's amateur

president of the U.S. Track and

downed Oklahoma State, 61-58,
last night in Big Eight basketball,
grabbing the lead early in the
second half for the first time and
hanging on to the end.
OU's Joe Holladay hit a driving
layup to tie it at 39-all. At the
2-min. mark OU went ahead with
a 20-foot jump shot by Steve Ay-

every Cowboy point surge with

night.
The Shockers hit a torrid 60
per cent from the field the first
half, and 48.6 per cent for the
contest. North Texas slumped to
a 25.8 per cent shooting average
the first half, largely because of
Wichita's stingy pressing defense.
The Eagles picked up their
shooting the second half for a}
37 per cent game average, but
their leaky full-court defense gave
away too many easy Shocker bas-!
kets to make any difference in the
outcome.
Sophomore guard Greg Carney
led Wichita with 22 points, aided
by teammates Ron Washington
with 20.
Wichita State is now 2- in con-

Eagles are winless in three starts.

1968: ITS CAUSE AND CURE
Are you still writing "1967" on your papers and letters?
I'll bet you are, you scamp! But I am not one to be harsh
with those who forgot we are in a new year, for I myself
have long been guilty of the same lapse. In fact, in my
senior year at college, I wrote 1873 on my papers until
nearly November of 1874! (It turned out, incidentally,
not to be such a serious error because, as we all know, 1874
was later repealed by President Chester A. Arthur in a fit
of pique over the Black Tom Explosion. And, as we all
know, Mr. Arthur later came to regret his hasty action.
Who does not recall that famous meeting between Mr.
Arthur and Louis Napoleon when Mr. Arthur said, "Lou,
I wish I hadn't of repealed 1874:' Whereupon the French
emperor made his immortal rejoinder, "Tipi que nous et
tyler tu". Well sir, they had many a good laugh about that,
as you can imagine.)
But I digress. How can we remember to write 1968 on
our papers and letters? Well sir, the best way is to find
something memorable a bout 1968, something unique to fix
it firmly in your mind. Happily, this is very simple be-
cause, as we all know. 1968 is the first year in history that
is divisible by 2, by a, and by 7. Take a pencil and try it:
1968 divided by 2 is 984; 1968 divided by 5 is 393Y!, 1968
divided by 7 is 2811/,. This mathematical curiosity will not
occur again until the year 2079. but we will all be so busy
then celebrating the Chester 2. Arthur bi-centenerary
that we will scarcely have time to be writing papers and
letters and like that.

Another clever little trick to fix the year 1968 in your
mind is to remember that 1968 spelled backwards is 8691.
"Year" spelled backwards is "raey' "Personna" spelled
backwards is "Annosrep.' I mention Personna because I
am paid to write this column by the makers of Personna
Super Stainless Steel Blades, and they are inclined to
withhold my check if I omit to mention their product.
Not, mind you, that it is any chore for me to sing the
praises of Personna, for it is a seemly blade that shaves
you cleanly, a gleaming blade that leaves you beaming, a
trouble-free blade that leaves you stubble-free, a match-
less blade that leaves you scratchless. If you are tired of
facial slump, if you are fed up with jowl blight, try.
Personna today... available both in double-edge style and
Injector style. And if I seem a bit excessive in my admira-
tion for Personna, I ask you to remember that to me
Personna is more than a razor blade; it is also an employer.
But I digress. We were speaking of the memorable as-
pects of 1968 and high among them, of course, is the fact
that in 1968 the entire House of Representatives stands
for election. There will, no doubt, be many lively and inter-
esting contests, but none, I'll wager, quite so lively and
interesting as the one in my own district where the lead-
ing candidate is none other than Chester A. Arthur!
Mr. Arthur, incidentally, is not the first ex-president to
come out of retirement and run for the House of Repre-
sentatives. John Quincy Adams was the first. Mr. Adams
also holds another distinction: he was the first son of a
president ever to serve as president. It is true that Martin
Van Buren's son, Walter "Blinky" Van Buren, was at one
time offered the nomination for the presidency, but he,
alas, had already accepted a bid to become Mad Ludwig
of Bavaria. James K. Polk's son, on the other hand, be-
came Salmon P. Chase. Millard Fillmore's son went into
aluminum siding. This later became known as the Mis-
souri Compromise.
* *9F I 1995, Max shulman
In Missouri, or anywhere else, there is no compromise
with quality in Personna or in Personna's partner in
shaving pleasure -Burma-Shave. Burma-Shave comes
to you in regular or menthol. Try it. You'll find it soaks
rings around any other lather.
