A Bad Idea
T HE ETERN CONFERENCE FacultR:pres:ntatives proved
themselves quite intelligent last week ,,hen the°y defeated a move
to ban alien athletes from NCAA track meets. The suggestion itself
was quite questionable, and the manner in which it was presented
more so. It was tagged as a suggestion of the Big Ten track coaches,
although it came from a meeting that was torn by argument, and
certainly was not representative of the entire group's opinion. The
final motion broke in the Chicago newspapers, through one of the
coaches, before the Big Ten office had received any word of it.
Apparently it was sponsored primarily by Northwestern track
coach Charles "Rut" Walter, and gained a majority of the Conference
coaches after much bitter discussion. The idea was to ask the Big Ten
to suggest to the NCAA that the rule be initiated in track alone. This is
generally a backwards method, since the Big Ten itself has no such
rule, and the Faculty Representatives saved the Conference much face
by dropping the idea.
Walter's arguments sound plausible at first. "It has gotten to be
a joke the way some coaches are going out and recruiting overseas,"
he told the Chicago papers. "We no longer have national champion-
ships-they are international. Some schools are actually recruiting as
much in foreign countries as they are here. It's gotten so we are
training boys who will come back and beat us in the Olympics." At
second glance, however, one can see that these ideas are not only
selfish, but are quite outside the ideas of American education and
