Kheel Denies Hearing Request
N U Eyes Dye as Athletic Director
NEW YORK (M)-The Amateur
Athletic Union, in a swift turn-
about, lifted the suspension of 11
foreign collegiate athletes yester-
day and announced that steps
were being taken to make all for-
eign students eligible for author-
ized track and field competition
in the United States.
This would include both AAU-
sanctioned meets and closed
events sponsored by the rival U.S.
Track and Field Federation, Col.
Don Hull, executive director of
the AAU, said.
The action was taken before at-
torney Theodore Kneel, chairman
of the four-man Sports Arbitra-
tion Panel set up by a Senate re-
solution to arbitrate the AAU-
USTFF dispute, turned down a,
request by the USTFF for a hear-
ing on the latest controversy.
The newest furor developed
when the AAU suspended the 11
foreign athletes for competing in
a USTFF meet here Feb. 10 which
lacked AAU sanction.
The AAU insisted that no for-
eign athlete can ,compete in a
meet-whether he is a collegian
or not-without the consent of the
ruling athletic body in that coun-
try. This, the AAU said, is the
rule of the International Track
and Field Federation.
The USTFF, an organization
made up largely of colleges and
high schools, argued that no sanc-
tion was needed for a purely
On Feb. 17, the arbitration
panel, seeking a temporary settle-
ment, ordered the USTFF to seek
sanction for the meet retroactively
and the AAU to grant that sanc-
tion while lifting the suspension
of the affected athletes.
Nothing was done.
Kheel called a press conference
Tuesday at his mid-town office
to announce that he felt the Feb.
17 order had been misunderstood
by Father Wilfred Crowley, presi-
dent and one of the organizers
of the USTFF.
Feeling the order was prejudi-
cial to the over-all case being
studied by the panel, Father Crow-
ley, a priest in Los Altos, Calif.,
asked for a hearing.
Kheel rejected the request and
repeated his order that the USTPF
apply by telegram immediately for
saction of its Feb. 10 meet. At
the same time, he asked the AAU
to grant the sanction and lift the
The war between the AAU and
the National Collegiate Athletic
Association, which spawned the

years. There have been periods
