'Alumni Paid Tutors,
For Football Players
Jeremiah Ford II, who was fired yesterday from his post
as athletic director of the University of Pennsylvania, told
The Daily last night that a supplementary athletic fund
has been "used illegally to pay for the tutoring of Penn foot-
ball players."
Dr. Harry Fields, assistant to the president for athletic
affairs, explained the firing as "a move to change the image
of Penn athletics."
Ford, however, charged that his dismissal had been pre-
cipitated by his opposition to the handling of the supplemen-

PANHELLENIC PRESIDENT Ginny Mochel, '68, announced
her support of the elimination of sophomore women's hours at
the Panhellenic President's Council meeting last night.
She said that "learning to take the responsibiilty for decid-
ink when to come in is a part of the learning process and I think
it is a responsibility sophomore women will take."
Miss Mochel's statement differs from the position Panhel took
last fall that sophomore women's hours should be extended on
weekends, but not eliminated.
THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION yesterday approved a
plan to stimulate interest in teaching of underprivileged children.
The board agreed to increase the terms of the "forgiveness clause"
of the National Defense Education Act loan program.
Under the new plan, teachers who will work in schools which
have more than the state average of underprivileged stufents are
allowed a 15 per cent reduction of the principal of loans used to
finance their education, the reduction starting the year after
graduation, The reduction of the loan principal will continue
past the former limit of 50 per cent of the loan's value.

City Editor
Sophomore women's hours will
be eliminated next fall informed
sources said yesterday.
Student Government Council
last Thursday recommended that
such action be taken, and sent
their recommendation to Vice-
President for Student Affairs
Richard L. Cutler. Cutler will meet
this morning with Bruce Kahn,

Cutler is expected to approve
the recommendation, but when
contacted yesterday, refused to.
confirm or deny that he has al-
ready made a decision.
If his decision is , favorable,
sophomore hours will be lifted un-
less the Regents veto the change.
Cutler has said that a decsision
on changes in sophomore hours
will probably come before April
15. He has noted that he might
make only minor changes,
Cutler has explained that he is
reaching his decision by talking
to assistant deans, residence hall

sophomore women, and has done
so to help him reach a decision.

students regard Robben Wright
Fleming, recently elected successor
to University President f-arlan
Hatcher, as an "honest broker.,
"Fleming is very conscious of
hearing all points of view," ac-
cording to Gary Zweifel, president
of the,Wisconsin Student Associa-
tion. "He has consistently been a
strong supporter of student gov-
ernment," he said.
"I have always found Fleming

Wisconsin has had two ma.or
demonstration crises in the past
11 months. The second came in
May when the local SDS chapter's
picket of Dow Chemical Co.': re-
cruiting tables brought arrests.
Fleming personally put up bond
for 11 arrested students.
In reaction to the Dow crisis, an
ad-hoc group calling itself the
No-Berkeley-Here C o m m i t t e e
sprung up. Its members felt that
students should be allowed to
protest peacefully but not break
the law or obstruct other students.
Steve Fielz, chairman of the No-
Berkeley-Here Committee felt that

outbreak of student disorder.



Fleming had maintained
througout the crisis that students
did have a right to be interviewed,
by any firm - including those
making Vietnam supplies. Fleming
had also told students on several
occasions that he "didn't think
any student should be jailed."
A student who described himself
as "one of the few anarchists on
campus" called Fleming "a mealy-
mouthed, double-talking adminis-
trator, like most administrators."
A visiting student from the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin said, "I don't
know anybody who doesn't like
him. He's horribly impressive." I

"Jefferson Davis Fund,"
Football Coach Bob Odell then
allegedly requisitioned money from
the fund for incidental football
expenses. Fields allegedly approv-
ed the requisitions.
Disputes Claim
Ford claimed that, "although the
money was usually used for addi-
tional helmets, footballs and
coaches' trips to football clinics
(all within the limits of NCAA,
rules), it has come to my atten-
tion that it was also being allotted
for tutoring of football players."
Requisition of money for ath-
letes' tutors is in violation of Ivy
League and NCAA regulations.
"When I found out, I investi-
gated and learned that Fields had
okayed the money for the tutors."
Fields and Hannah flatly re-
futed Ford's charges
"If he says that we've been
doing anything illegal, he's ab-
solutely crazy," stated Fields.
"This is absolutely a lie. I don't
know where he gets this stuff,
but it's definitely untrue."
Never Heard of It
"I've never heard of the fund,"
Hannah said.
Fields, in a contradictory coun-
ter-charge, added that Ford "was
the one who's done all the signing
of checks from the fund. He's
okayed every cent that has come
out of the fund."
Football coach Odell, however,
supported Ford's charges, "I know
we paid for a player's tutoring.
"It happened two years ago
when I was first appointed head
coach. It was a nominal payment
and I didn't realize it was Illegal,,
but ignorance is no excuse.

happened since then," he con-
