HAM YOUNG is also rich in
talent, boasting 10 Scandina-
hletes. Among them are deca-
s Pihl and Christer Lythell, jav-
rower Bengt Gustaffson and
tter Anders Arrhenius.
other challengers, Southern Cal-
and UCLA, are like Tennessee
most of their point potential is
own.
essee's Reggie Jones is the de-
14-yard dash champ and has
on's best of 9.3 this year. But
be pushed by Southern Cal's
Gilkes, from Gunana, who has
of 9.3 this year.
S was second to Gilkes in the
year in Austin, and that race
well feature the same men this
round.
essee has another potential win-
ton Addison, who has gone 8:36.8
steeplechase.
ern Cal is mentioned as the pos-

sible meet favorite, having edged 1974
NCAA runnerup UCLA in the Pacific
Eight championships this year.
If Southern Cal is to win, not only
will Gilkes have to run well in his
events, the Trojans will have to have
points from Ken Randle in the 440 and
from their classy 440 and mile relay
teams.
RANDLE has run a 45.1-second 440,
the best in the nation this year. But
UCLA's Benny Brown has gone 45.2,
and Texas Southern's Robert Taylor,
with 45.7.
Arizona State will present the main
obstacle to Southern Cal in the 440
relay. The Sun Devils have scorched
off a 39.4 second mark, behind the
Trojans' times of 39.1 and 39.3.
Defending champion Paul Cummings
of Brigham Young returns in the mile
and may have the advantage as he runs
on his own track and at a altitude he
is used to
But UTEP's Waigwa beat Cummings
in the western Athletic Conference
championships last month in Salt Lake

City, and Villanova's Eamon Coghlan,
an Irishman, has the best collegiate
time this year, 3:56.2. Waigwa has
run 3:57.0 and Cummings 3:59.6.
THERE HAS nevpr been a four-min-
te mile at Provo's 4,51foot alti-
tude.
Sweden is strongly represented in the
shotput in UTEP's Hans Hoglund and
Hans Almstrom. Hoglund won the
NCAA in 1973 but was unseated last
year by Western Kentucky's Jesse
Stuart.
But Stuart was injured this year after
recording a throw of 68-4 and Hoglund,
whose best toss is 67-9-f4, is favored.
The 880-yard run, the pole vault and
triple jump should belong to Ameri-
cans. Mark Enyeart of Utah State and
Alan Schultz of BYU look strong in the
880. UTEP's Larry Jessee and San
Jodse State's Dan Ripley are favored
in the pole vault and UTEP's Arnold
Grimes and UCLA's Willie Banks have
the best season marks in the long
jump.

Ford's ruling may
alter college sports

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - New rules
p r o h i b i t i n g discrimina-
tion against women in sports
may signal the end of intercol-
legiate programs as they have
been known in recent decades,
says the National Collegiate
Athletic Association.
Michael Scott, a Washington
attorney representing the NCAA,
made the comment Tuesday,
immediately after the Ford ad-
ministration made public its
long-awaited and controversial
n e w regulations interpreting
Title IX of the 1972 education
amendments.
The NCAA's main concern
was that the new regulations,
which now go to Congress for
consideration, do not exempt
revenue-producing sports such
as football and basketball, as
the NCAA sought.
"Excessive revenues from
football and baskethall at
many colleges havedefrayed
the costs of men's and wo-

men's programs in other
sports, and regulations which
do not make it clear that rev-
enues from a particular sport
may first he used in that
sport eventually means the
erosion of the strength of that
sports program and conse-
quent loss of revenue," said
Scott.
HEW Secretary Caspar W.
Weinberger said the administra-
tion considered exempting the
money - producing sports from
the regulations but rejected the
idea, especially since Congress
also refused to exempt them by
statute last year.

Pele to make comeback
Pele, whose international fame is equalled only by that of Muhammad Ali, announced Tuesday
that he will come out of retirement and play for the New York Cosmos of the North American
soccer league. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger said that should the Brazilian star sign, closer
ties between the U.S. and Brazil would result. While Kissinger is interested in closer diplomacy,
the Cosmos are looking forward to flashy play like this.
