takes the burden away from the
NCAA and various colleges in
terms of policing violations. The
question now is how far individual
high school coaches will go in their
anxiety to get their kids into col-
lege."
Everybody concerned with ath-
letic scholarships hopes to avoid
the unfortunate situation which be-
fell Oklahoma University last year.
In that sordid affair, an eager
Ball (Texas) High School football
coach teamed with a zealous
Sooner offensive line coach and
tampered the academic records of
Kerry Jackson and Mike Phillips,
two unwitting pawns in the game
of Touchdown, U.S.A.
Also on the subject of athletic
scholarships, the Big Ten has
once again altered the number of
grants allotted to the so-called
'minor' sports. (All sports save
football, basketball and hockey).
Last year, the conference cut the
total from 33 full rides to 15
grants divisible three ways, cov-
ering either singly or in total
tition, room or board. This year
the figure was increased from 15
to 20, a temporary victory in the
hard game of economic reality.
From his position as wrestling
coach, Rick Bay naturally favors
the increase but thinks the Big Ten
should take a step in another di-
rection.
"What I'd like to see is a rule
equalizing the number of scholar-
ships given out in each sport" ex-
plained Bay. "For instance, Indi-
ana, which concentrates its aid
on swimming and track, has more
scholarship people in those sports
than other conference schools. Ov-
er the course of several years,
this inequity becomes a substantial
competitive disadvantage"
As the economic squeeze con-
tinues to hit the universities, we
can expect more rules, restrictions
and financial maneuvering. Some
of the important decisions affect-
ing collegiate athletics are being
made in rooms equipped with
blackboards covered with b a r
graphs and financial pies rather
than X's and 0's.

Grapplers Gather

Wrestling Coach Rick Bay invites all interested athletes to
attend Big Ten champion Michigan's first wrestling meeting
tonight at 7 p.m. in the Sports Services Building.
The attendance of all returning grapplers, incoming freshmen
and those with unknown wrestling ambitions is strongly en-
couraged.
Aaron on the Air
NEW YORK - The National Broadcasting Company said
yesterday it will interrupt its normal telecasts to show Hank
Aaron's 712th through 715th home runs.
The network said a videotape showing and brief commentary
will be provided shortly after'the Atlanta slugger's homers. He
now has 710, the last hit Monday night, in pursuit of Babe Ruth's
all-time home run mark of 714.

House tackles Rozelle
WASHINGTON - The House Commerce Committee approved
a bill yesterday sponsored by Rep. Torbert H. Macdonald, D-
Mass., that would prohibit the National Football League from
refusing to telecast home games locally if there is a sellout crowd
72 hours in advance. The full House is expected to act tomorrow
on the proposal. A similar bill passed last Thursday by the Senate
contains a one-year time limit for such action.
Long live the King
HILTON HEAD, S. C. - Billie Jean King is suffering a slight
imbalance in her blood sugar but there is no reason she should
not be able to play Bobby Riggs in their celebrated match at
Houston Sept. 20, a representative said yesterday.
"Billie Jean has not been hospitalized, she is playing matches
today and tomorrow," Ted Simmons of the Hilton Head Racquet
Club said. "She has undergone blood tests but, despite the
imbalance, there is no reason to keep her from playing tennis.
She also is being treated for a slight cold.
Niland bewildered
DALLAS - Dallas Cowboy All-Pro guard John Niland was
released from a hospital yesterday to undergo a "psychiatric
examination" after a disturbance police said the 6-foot-3, 245-
pounder was involved in earlier in the day.
Niland was overpowered by five policemen and two private
security guards shortly after midnight when a man and a woman
called police to say that Niland was trying to enter their home.
The couple told police Niland visited their home late Monday
and then went home. They said he returned later.

Staubach as his No. 1 quarterback yesterday to start the National
Football League season against Chicago next Sunday.
The announcement -t Landry's weekly news conference ended
months, of speculation whlch carried through the pre-season about
Dallas' quarterback leader.
Landry said that it was "important that we have a starting
quarterback so we don't have to speculate eveg week. It's
unsettling to the team."

DURHAM, N. C. - Duke University basketball Coach Bucky
Waters resigned yesterday to become an administrative assistant
in the institution's division of health affairs.
Waters, 37, had one year remaining on his four-year contract.
He had been under pressure from Duke students and alumni
repeatedly, especially after several players quit the Blue Devil
team last season.
Waters' teams at Duke compiled 63 victories and 45 defeats
in three years, including appearances at the National Izvitational
Tournament in 1970 and 1971.
Lakers lack stars
LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Lakers opened their
training camp yesterday with three prominent absentees-guard
Jerry West, center Wilt Chamberlain and guard-forward Keith
Erickson.
West, who has hinted retirement, "will be fined each day an
undisclosed amount of cash," said Pete Newell, general manager.
The all-pro, 13-year veteran wants to renegotiate his contract, a
club spokesman said.
