National Student federation from
Atlanta, Ga., deploring subsidiza-
tion in college athletics. The opin-
ion was the result of a three-day
discussion and parliamentary fights
between student delegates from.
more than 175 college campuses in,
the United States.
The federation passed three reso-
lutions which summarized the gen-
eral student opinion on the prob-
lem. The first stated their general
belief, that the "sixth annual Con-
gress of the National Student fed-
eration of America deplores the
subsidizing of college athletics."
Their second and third resolu-
tions proposed that not only should
equal recognition be given to schol-
astic achievement as well as phys-
ical prowess, but that they would
sponsor a country-wide movement
to purge American colleges and
universities of commercialism in
athletics. The second resolution as
adopted stated "that the sixth
student federation go on record as
favoring the award of scholarships
on the same basis, regardless of
the possibility of bringing about a
nation-wide conference of college
presidents, athletic directors and
student leaders on commercialism
and professionalism in college ath-
