WASHINGTON-
New federal regulations inter-
preting an anti-discrimination
sex law will weaken revenue-
producing sports and eventually
damage all intercollegiate ath-
letics, big-time football coaches
told a House education subcom-
mittee yesterday.
Darrell Royal, Texas c o a c h
and president of the American
Football Coaches Association,
led a contingent of seven others
who asked Congress to declare
a moratorium on the application
of the new rules until the
Department of Health, Educa-
tion and Welfare could study
their economic impact on all
facets of intercollegiate athlet-
ics and the financial structure
of the colleges and universities.
"Income generated by
football is a principal source
of athletic income at many
colleges and frequently finan-
ces the entire athletic pro-
gram as well as the construc-
tion, maintenance and debt
retirement of facilities," said
the formal statement signed
by the eight coaches.
"In many instances it has
providedthe funds for the
present expansion of women's
athletics. This will no longer be
possible under the HEW regu-
lations."
The coaches received some
vocal support from a couple of
members of the House post-sec-
ondary education subcommit-
tee.

- Rep. Ronald MottI, D-Ohio,
said he went to Notre Dame on
a baseball scholarship and was
willing to co-sponsor a meas-
ure to exempt revenue-sharing
sports from the regulations.
Rep. Virginia Smith, R-
Neb., said she did not think
HEW should be involved in
this area.
Chairman James G. O'Hara,
D-Mich., said his main concern
during the six days of hearings
would not be with athletics but
other Title IX guidelines deal-
ing with self-assessment pro-
grams, international grievance
programs and submission of
certain records to HEW.
However, O'Hara said the
committee could act on the
guidelines as they pertain to
athletics and then approve or
disapprove the rest of the regu-
lations in another action.
Kathy Kelly, president of the
National Student Associatio
urged approval of the regula-
tions which would go into ef-
fect June 21 if not disapproved
by Congress.
