Conlerence Eligibility Committee
Schedules Meeting for March 17

CHICAGO, March 9-The Western
Conference eligibility committee to-
day requested a full meeting of facul-
ty reiresentatives here March 17 to
interpret "reconversion" athletic
legislation adopted by the Conference
last December.
Prof. Ralph W. Aigler, of Michi-
gan, committee chairman, empha-
sized that the special meeting will
not consider the University of Chi-
cago's intention to withdraw from
the Big Ten or "possible implications
regarding the future make-up of
conference membership."
To Revise Code
Aigler said his group "encountered
a series of necessary clarifications"
in the revised code which was intend-
ed to bring about a return to pre-war
eligibility standards.
Next regularly-scheduled meeting

ity to determine whether the confer-
ence will continue as the "Big Nine",
or accept a successor to the maroons.
Athletic Directors Noncommittal
The Conference athletic directors,
withdrawal, stressed that they didI
not believe it was within their pro-
vince "to determine the size or altera-
tion of Conference membership."
Michigan State asserted it would
"be very happy' to receive a member-
ship bid, while Nebraska and Notre
Dame, also listed as Conference pros-
pects, were non-committal. The Uni-
versity of Pittsburgh, mentioned as
a Big Ten possibility ever since Chi-
cago dropped football seven years
ago, made no comment on the
Maroons' withdrawal.
