SWC, BIG EIGHT:
Two Loops Agree on Letter of Intent
DALLAS (P - The Southwest
Conference announced yesterday
it had reached an agreement with
the IBig Eight Conference under
which there will be a mutual
recognition of letters of intent in
order to better control recruiting
of football players.
Under this agreement an athlete
signing at one of the 16 schools
of the two conferences would be
ineligible to transfer to another
without loss of his freshmani and
sophomore years of competition.
The agreement was reached by
telephone between the Southwest
Conference, meeting here, and the
Big Eight, meeting in Kansas City.
The date on which athletes may
be signed was set as the first
Tuesday preceding Feb. 15. Next
year, when the agreement goes
into effect, the date will be Feb. 12.
The Big Eight had preferred
March 1 but compromised with the
Southwest Conference, which had
a Feb. 1 date.

Detroit Pistons 87-78 in a Nation-

yesterday by rallying to outscore
the Pistons 38-28 in the second

No 'Hiding Out'-
The t~vo conferences agreed that
there would have to be a 72-hour
period from the signing date before
an institution or the alumni of
the institution could pay the ex-
penses of the athlete to visit the
campus. This is to prevent a school

must be filed within one week
after it is signed. If the boy gets
a notice within two weeks that it
has not been filed, he becomes
eligible to sign at another school.
Failure of a boy to pass the en-
trance examination at one of the
schools will obviate the agreement.
He can then go to another school
without loss of eligibility.
KANSAS CITY (A')- An inter-
conference letter of intent for
high school athletes was agreed
upon by the Big Eight and South-
west Conferences yesterday and
hailed as a forerunner of similar
agreements involving all the na-
tion's major athletic conferences.
The agreemnent covers only oot-
ball. The two conferences agreed
on Feb. 12, 1963 as the signing
date for all high school athletes
in both leagues. The SWC has had
a letter of intent for several years,
the Big Eight since October.
Once an athlete signifies his In-
tention of enr-olling at a school,
he cannot then change his mind
and jump to another school In
either conference, without a stiff
penalty. If he does, he won't be
eligible for two years and then
will have only two years of foot-
The faculty of men of both the
Big Eight and SWC approved the
agreement, first of its kind in the
nation, at their quarterly meet-
ings which ended yesterday in
Kansas City and Dallas. They had
met several times in recent months
to work out the agreement.
LAS VEGAS (P--Emile Griffith
of New York retained his World
Welterweight title last night with
a wild and controversial technical
knockout over Jorge Fernandez of
Argentina in the ninth round.

utes to rest after a blow to the

But he could not continue.
A tremendous boo went up when5

knockout was announced and Fer-
nandez was still in anguish as
police climbed into the ring to
quiet the turbulence.
Griffith was ahead oni points at
the time of the blow which brought
the fight to its unexpected end-
The time of the knockouts was
one minute, 34 seconds.
