NCAA Stings MSI

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK-Michigan State
was stung yesterday by the Na-
tional Collegiate Athletic Associa-
tion for "excessive financial aid
and recruiting violations."
The penalty was a three-year
probation by the NCAA, but is
suspended and will not have any
actual effect on the Spartans'
standing unless the school violates
any other regulations during a
three-year probationary period.
Three other schools, Miami
(Fla.), Navy and Western State
of Colorado, were diso cited for
violations by the NCAA's 18-man
policy-making council. Only West-
rtern State was censured and rep-'
rimanded, as both Navy and
Miami were given probationary
penalties although MSU's was the
severest.
First Time
It was the first time such a
suspended sentence ever had been
handed down and NCAA executive
director Walter Byers explained
that this was done because Michi-
gan State had corrected the con-
dition several years ago.
Michigan State's rules violation
involved a knotty problem. The
I -

NCAA Committee on Infractions
learned about a year ago that a
secret fund had existed through
which payments were made to
football players for tuition, spend-
ing money and for other purposes.
Investigation showed the fund
had existed for a good many years
and that during the 1957-59 period
at least 10 football players had re-
ceived illegal payments.
Duffy to the Rescue
Then Coach Hugh (Duffy)
Daugherty decided the whole thing
was improper, called in the ath-
letes and told them the payments*
would end in 1959. There was no
evidence, Byers said, that anyj
university officials knew about the
fund.'
The suspended sentence, if it is
ever imposed, involves being barred
from NCAA-sponsored champion-
ships and all tournaments co-
operating with the collegiate rul-
ing body.
Miami was placed on probation
for one year and barred from par-
ticipation in the NCAA basketball
tournament and other major
tournaments cooperating with the
NCAA.
The ruling came as a result of

For Small Attendance Gain
It makes you wonder a bit when a Michigan football team with
a 5-1 season record, in the thick of the Big Ten title fight, and with
the third best offense in the nation goes through the season playing
in a stadium that is only 60 per cent full:
What's the reason?

In that game (Tulsa's fourth ago.

pleted 35 of 43 passes-an unpre- productive passer in college foot-
ball history, already owning four

the 180-pound senior has com-

up for four more weeks. Rhome

scored five himself, and completed
Atyfive two-point conversion passes,
accounting for 172 points.
Already Drafted
Rhome, who has already been
drafted by both the Dallas Cow-
boys of the National Football
League and the New York Jets of
the American League, appears cer-
tan to set at least one more record
this Saturday against Memphis
State. He needs only tworcomple-
tions to break the career record of
386. He'll also be shooting for the
seasonal touchdown pass record
,, ~(23) held by Vito Parilli of Ken-
tucky.

because we have to take into consideration that the Ohio State game
drew only 48,000, the week after
the President's assassination, and
the Purdue game had 48,000 be-
cause of a live telecast."
Weir sees two reasons why the
attendance hasn't increased, de-
spite the improvement of the team.
The first is that there are
six home games, and two are on
television, thus cutting dras-
tsicaly the number of both sea-
son ticket holders and those ho
<.::;.".a:; { ;::., com e in for an occasional gam e. h
"heHomecoming game against
Minnesota and the Illinois game
are naturals for attendance," Weir
says.
DON WEIR Alumni like to come back for
the homecoming festivities, and
the Illinois game is a great rivalry. But when both of those are on
TV, it really hurts the attendance."
Weir went on to say that people seem to have grown accustomed
to watching games on TV, and have faded in their loyalties to the
teams that they travel to see in person.
Weir also pointed to the Detroit newspaper strike as a deter-
rent to the attendance. "I'm convinced that the strike has hurt our
attendance," he says.
The ticket manager, who also serves as the Athletic Department's
business manager, went on to explain that he feels there is a satura-
tion point in the number of fans you can draw from this area. But
newspapers give the team publicity, especially when it's winning, and
this helps to attract more fans from other areas. The Detroit strike
has hurt the number of mail orders the ticket office has been re-
ceiving from the metropolitan Detroit area.
Weir isn't too worried about the situation, and he already
envisions a huge increase in attendance for next year. "The fans
will begin ordering more season tickets because they know that
we have two sellouts here next year (referring to the Michigan
State and Ohio State contests) and they don't want to miss them.
"This year's football team is paving the way for next year's
attendance, also. There seems to be a one-year delay in the fans
responding to a winning club."

needs only 14 more catches for
292 yards to break the receiving
marks of 70 passes for 1,007 yards
set last year by Baylor's Larry
Elkins.
'Wouldn't Trade Him'
Of Twilley, who has caught 57'
passes and scored eight touch-
downs, Rhome says, "I wouldn't1
trade him for anybody. He hasI
great timing. I don't believe he's
missed four passes all year that
he's been close to."
Rhome generally manages to get
most of his passes close to Twilley
and tightendnMark Maddox. Out
of 204 thrown this season, he's
only had four intercepted.

If you have patriotic school spirit and want to see Michigan go
to the Rose Bowl don't pick Ohio State or Purdue to win this week-
end. If you pick the rest of the games correctly you can still have
a chance to win two free tickets to the Michigan Theatre to see
Fate Is The Hunter, and a shot at the grand prize at the end of
the season. The picks are due at The Daily, 420 Maynard St., by
midnight Friday.
