With all these losses Canham1

By The Associated Press
CHICAGO-The National Col-
legiate Athletic Association took
a strong stand on its relations
with professional football yester-
day and the commissioners of the
two major pro leagues immediate-
ly issued statements of qualified
In New York, Pete Rozelle, Na-
tional Football League commis-
sioner, issued an order to his 14
teams prohibiting them from sign-;
ing college players until after the
player had completed all his eli-
gibility, including post - season
bowl games.
American Football League Com-
missioner Joe Foss praised the
NCAA report in Chicago and said
he is "confident something can
be worked out that will be accept-'
able to the NCAA and all con-

The premature signing of play-
ers was only one point in the
NCAA report, but was the only
one on which Foss and Rozelle
had statements.
The report, prompted by the
signing of players before their
teams were scheduled to compete
in bowl games, calls for an end to
the practice of college coaches
serving as scouts and agents for
the pros.
Candidly admitting that per-
haps "a couple of hundred assist-
ant coaches" throughout the coun-
try may be "on the pros' payroll,
Corbett submitted a recommen-
dation that asked:
1. The draft of the respective
Leagues be held after the last
NCAA certified post-season game;
2. That the pros do away with
: future draft picks:
3. That the pros "insist that no
member club under any circum-
stances at any time in the future
be permitted to sign a college
player" before his eligibility has
been completed, and
4. That any one having infor-
mation regarding violations place
such information in the hands of
the NCAA.
Next Step
The recommendation next will
go to the NCAA Council, the
group's policy-making body, for
action and is expected to be pre-
sented at the NCAA's 1966 conven-
Corbett emphasized, however,
that while the NCAA could put
no teeth in the proposal until
after the next football season, in-
dividual colleges can and should
take action immediately.
Meanwhile, the NCAA-AAU feud
over control of amateur sports

keeps boiling. The NCAA--back-
ing the federation movement in
track and field, basketball, base-
ball and gymnastics-will take ac-
tion today on official restrictions
of its members from competition
in meets not sanctioned by the
Santa's Game
The NCAA Extra Events Com-
mittee has received application for
sanction of a proposed Santa
Claus football bowl game in At-
lanta for Dec., 1966.
The surprise card in this shuf-
fle came when Bud Jack of Utah,
committee chairman, confirmed
that Bill MacPhail, Columbia
Broadcasting System vice-presi-
dent in charge of sports, had
made the presentation of such a
game to the Extra Events Com-
Jack tried to explain why this
connection had not come out ear-
"We felt there are some impli-
cations, some complications that
we didn't want to talk about un-
til it was presented to the NCAA
Council," he said.
"One concerned the game being
played on Christmas Day. The sec-
ond concerned a TV network spon-
soring a bowl game."

High Hopes
In order for Canham to build
a top team he will have to call
upon his sophomores for some
great performances. This year's f
crop should provide just that. In-
cluded among these sophomores is AB

the 100 and 200 in times of :09.6f

BOSTON (P) - Cassius Clay
"sneaked into town" Friday in a
40 passenger red and white bus,
with foot high lettering on each
side reading World's Heavyweight
Clay was here to have a physical
checkup Wednesday at Boston
City hospital, where he under-
went a hernia operation Nov. 13,
three days before his scheduled
title defense against Sonny Liston.
Clay said he thinks he is well
enough to resume light training
but he wants the approval of his
surgeon, Dr. William McDermott.
He told the newsmen he has
"become one of you"-he's going
to write about the Chuvalo-
Patterson heavyweight for a na-
tional magazine next month.
He predicted George Chuvalo,
a Canadian, will win by a knock-
out, "even though he fights like
a washerwoman."
Patterson, he added "fights like
a rabbit."
"Who's the greatest, Cassius?"
someone asked from the crowd.
"I don't talk that way any
more," Clay replied.

"I don't have to. I'm the champ."

been knocked down in a fight or
in training, came about as close
as possible to being floored Tues-
