CRITICISMS, flying fast and furiously, have been detected heading
in the direction of the Western Conference, subsequent t its
recent ruling in regard to television-or lack of it-for 1950 football.
A brief summary of the facts, reasons and circumstances
behind the decision to ban "live" television of all Big Ten football
games scheduled for next fall, however, seems to justify ade-
quately the decision made last weekend by a special committee
meeting called by the Conference.
Michigan's Fritz Crisler, chairman of the special committee, in
conjunction with a report released by the Big Ten, yesterday revealed
some facts concerning the two-day meeting and the circumstances
prompting its occasion. These factors, not heretofore emphasized,
prove that the decision was reasonable, and in the best interests of
collegiate football competition.
* * * *
FIRST OF ALL, television facilities will not be completely denied to
"shut-ins" and those who are otherwise unable to travel to the
locations of Big Ten schools.
Actually, television has not been banned . . . it has merely
been delayed. Complete films of games will be made available
for television showings starting at 6:00 p.m. on the Sunday
immediately following the day the game is played.
The public service that has in this manner been provided to sport
fans in previous seasons will thus be continued next year, to the
benefit of the Big Ten, the television companies, and the fans alike.
SECONDLY, an estimate $500,000 in television rights will be lost
to Western Conference schools in 1950. It has been argued that
the loss in revenue caused by attendance decreases is more than over-
come by this compensation.
As far as the Big Ten schools are concerned, this is true.
However-and this is the main reason for the Conference's de-
cision-video viewers in the Midwestern states have been weaken-
ing their support of the smaller colleges and universities in this
area by staying home and watching the bigger games on their
To these small schools, football is just as important in the
support of an athletic program as it is to the university with 20,000
students. If football receipts drop, their entire sports' programs suffer
Typical of the reports filed by the smaller colleges to Tug Wilson,
the Big Ten's Commissioner of Athletics, was the message sent in by
Otterbein College, which is located in Westerfille, Ohio with a student
population of about 1000. The Otterbein Cardinals reported post-war
attendance figures averaging 3000 paid spectators per game.
Last year, however, attendance dropped to less than one-half
of this figure, with a record low of 172 paying customers attending
one contest. Clearly, no college can support a complete athletic
program on revenue so slight.
On-the-spot television of the Big Ten's games, then, was not
affecting so strongly attendance at the grid classics. More important,
though, is the fact that repercussions from the TV-casts were shaking
the foundations of the small colleges and universities and that inter-
collegiate competition in all sports has been feeling the vibrations.
* * * *
IN ITS DECISION, which constitutes the first concerted move to
prohibit on-the-spot video, the Big Ten has made a step in the
direction of preserving the entire future of intercollegiate athletic
It is significant that the decision came only after three year's
consideration and as a direct result of an extensive two-day confer-
ence, which was attended by the three-man NCAAcommittee on tele-
vision and representatives of the Pacific Coast Conference and the
Ivy League as well as all of the larger midwestern schools.
Slated for Big

Western Conference baseball
action swings into high gear this
weekend with all squads except
Purdue beginning or continuing
their scrap for the Big Ten crown.
While Michigan entertains the
Minnesota Gophers at Ferry Field,.
Indiana travels to Iowa, Illinois
plays at Northwestern, and Wis-
consin takes on the Ohio State
Buckeyes at Madison.
THE BOILERMAKERS ride up
to East Lansing to face the Michi-
gan State diamond squad for a
game that won't be counted in
Conference play actually be-
gan last week with four teams
dividing two game series.
Iowa edged Illinois, 6-4, in the
first contest of their weekend
clash, but were walloped, 11-0, in
the second game with Alby Plain
of the Illini turning in the shutout.
OHIO STATE rebounded with
a 15-6 triumph over Minnesota in
the nightcap of a twin-bill after
being tamed in the opener, 5-2.
A pre-season size-up indicates
that Ohio State, Illinois, and
defending co-champion Indiana
will be the strongest contenders
for the title.
The Buckeyes have Pete Perini
returning, a righthanded hurler
who has won 10 of 14 conference
tussles in the last two years.
THEY ALSO have a second
baseman, Carl Parrill, and an out-
fielder, Ray Gebhardt, both of
whom batted around .400 last
