Minnesota Gophers Open Up' Offensive Game

The Low 13lowI
In Track and Field
Maybe it's because he's in Tokyo and I am not or maybe it's
because I'd like to see the smear tactic kept on the national affair
page rather than the sports page, but whatever the reason I have a
bone to pick with the New York Times' venerable sports editor Arthur
In a column datelined Tokyo, Oct.n5 Daley continued his sporadic,
gut-fighting attack against the National Collegiate Athletic Associa-
tion, which he has maintained since at least last summer.
In the struggle between the Ann Arbor-based United States
Track and Field Federation and the New York-based Amateur
Athletic Union Daley is a strong advocate of the AAU. In backing
the AAU, Daley has seen fit to launch a no-holds-barred attack
on the NCAA and its "puppet federations," particularly the
Daley's emotional attack describes the NCAA as "power mad,"
"self-seeking," "campus cutups" whose "rule-or-ruin policies will strip
America of talent for future Olympic Games."
Daley starts his column by equating the disqualification of 11
Indonesian and North Korean athletes from the Olympics with the
eve-tal fate of America's track athletes if the NCAA persists in its
stand against the AAU. The Indonesian athletes were disqualified for
participating in the Games of the Newly Emerging Forces (GANEFO).
The GANEFO games were organized by Indonesia's Sukarno as purely
a political propaganda device. The International Amateur Athletic
Federation, ruling body for international track and field, refused to
sanction the games because Sukarno wouldn't periiit athletes from
Tiawan or Israel to participate. Because it was an international meet
unsanctioned by an international body, all athletes who participated
were banned from any further competition in international meets
by the ,DAAF.
False Analogy...
Daley would have his readers believe that this situation is similar
to the current track and field situation in the United States when in
reality the cases are quite remarkably dissimilar. The USTFF does
not ban anyone from its meets. It is, Daley to the contrary, organized
with the best interest of track and field at heart. Further the IAAF
has never issued a statement of warning to the USTFF that its ath-
letes would be banned from international meets as it did in the
GANEFO case.
Daley continues, "when the NCAA puppet federation (like Presi-
dent Johnson, Daley never mentions the opposition by name) held a
few meets this year, the AAU made a generous gesture and rein-
stated the athletes involved, but only for the sake of Olympic unity."
The facts are the AAU and the USTFF entered a joint agree-
ment negotiated by Gen. Douglas MacArthur whereby both parties
were bound to sanction each others meet. Though the AAU often
reneged on this agreement, they couldn't stop the USTFF meets or
ban its athletes.
"Not until a tourist mingles here in the international set can
he realize how solidly entrenched the AAU is in the IAAF and
most other international federations as well. They sneer at the
NCAA power crab and vow support of the AAU to the end," says
Daley. Historically, however, the IAAF recognizes the group which
controls the majority of athletes in a country. And no matter how
many cocktail parties the AAU may have for members of the
IAAF in Tokyo, the fact remains that this group is the USTFF.
From my personal contact with USTFF officials I have never been
given reason to believe that the IAAF was turning a deaf ear to-
ward them.
Grand Finale . .
"The AAU has tightened ship and made needed reforms in recent
years. It has few paid employes and the main job is handled by a vast
army of self sacrificing amateur volunteers. The NCAA, however, is
run by professionals who keep reaching out for more and more power.
The loot gained from televising football games can be used as a whip
to drive any reluctant athletic directors into line.
"If the NCAA wants to take control of amateur sports in the
United States, it doesn't have to wage open warfare in defiance of
international rules. It can take over the AAU easily merely by infil-.
trating it. In fact, college men hold all the major AAU posts anyway.
If the NCAA cause is just and proper, the NCAA need only to join
rather than destroy," sums up Daley.
The contradictions, half-truths and out and out fabrications con-
tained in these two paragraphs are so broad that they stagger imag-
ination. Earlier in his column Daley had written, "It behooves all
college presidents to open their eyes and not let themselves get hood-
winked by the self-seeking hanky-panky of athletic directors and
coaches." It behooves all Americans to keep an open mind and not
let themselves be hoodwinked by the self-seeking hanky-panky of
Arthur Daley.
