March 4-5, Walter Byers,
LA executive director, said.,
eanwhile, Lou Wilkie of Bar-
ville, Okla., said he again will
as convener at a meeting yet
be set for basketball groups.

They met in Chicago last October
and in Washington in December
without results.
The AAU now has this coun-
try's two delegates to FIBA (Fed-
eration Internationale Basketball
Association) and the NCAA wants
representation.
Wilkie is a member of the AAU
and a FIBA delegate. He was
appointed by the international
body to try to get an understand-
ing between the NCAA and AAU
over the basketball issue.'
"If we can't work something
out at the new meeting, then I'll
turn it over to R. William Jones
in Germany," Wilkie said. "He
can come here, look at the various
proposals and details, and decide
himself who will represent the
U. S. internationally."
Jones is general secretary of
FIBA.
Byers, at a news conference,
said that "We think federations
are so sound, the AAU will want
to join-and we hope they will
attend our March organization
meetings and examine all the de-
tails."
Byers stressed that the NCAA
will not have a majority vote in
the federations, the components

of which would be colleges, high
schools, at-large members (YMCA,
etc.) an open category (AAU) and
armed forces.
"The armed forces are neutral
about the whole thing," said
Byers. "They have not come into
the federations, but their reasons
are entirely different than the
AAU. We want the two to join us,
but we certainly can form federa-
tions without them.
"I can't say if the track and
field federation will go ahead and
hold a meet in opposition to the
AAU in June. I don't know what
its plans will be, but I would
think it would include competi-
tion and we would support it. We
would think the AAU would sup-
port it, too, for the good of Ameri-
can sports."
Byers-said he wasn't convinced
the AAU will not eventually join
such federations.
"I've heard that Mr. Fisher
(Louis J. Fisher, new AAU presi-
dent) has said the AAU definitely
will not join," ,Byers added. "And
I've heard him say details are too
vague at this time for a decision."
Byers said the federations would
have a division for competition
by women and post-graduates "if
the AAU does not come in to ful-
fill these needs."
"The Track and Field Federa-
tion really has some great plans,"
Byers continued. "They include in-
ternational interchange of coaches
for clinics; establishment of dis-
semination centers for keeping
abreast of international rules and
new coaching techniques, etc.
"The AAU was invited to use its
organization framework in operat-
ing this program but declined."
Financing such a plan, Byers
said, would be aided by dues or
fees from every constituent mem-
ber of the federations as well as'
other means, such as receipts from
federation events if they are suc-
cessful.
"As for international recogni-
tion,' that could be applied for
after the federations are formed
and are well organized," ssaid
Byers.
