Harvard Grid Coach
Defends College Sports
WASHINGTON-(P)-College sports-and the men who play
hem-were staunchly defended yesterday by Lloyd P. Jordan, football
Dach at Harvard.
Jordan, who is president of the National Football Coaches Asso-
ation, was here to testify before the college presidents named by the
merican Council on Education to find out what is wrong with sports.
THE MEETING was closed, but Jordan met with reporters later.
(Continued from Page 1)
After dividing the houses into
three groups, "admit," "don't ad-
mit," and "no single opinion," it
was found that more changes took
place in the houses that had no
single opinion than in those with a
definite opinion to begin with.

THE TURNOUT for the meet-
ings, which were held during the
spring of 1951, varied greatly as
did the amount of discussion in
each house, but members general-
ly showed a keen interest in the
Questionnaires were passed
out about a week before and
about two weeks after the feed-
backs. Fortunately, from the
scientific standpoint, about one-
fifth of the men missed these
pmeetings. Therefore the staff
was able to compare the men
who were present with those
who were absent and get an idea
whether attending the meeting
had helped to change the man's
Members expressed surprise at
finding out that there is as much
sentiment in their house towards
changing membership policy as
was indicated. This suggested that
before the feedbacks they hadn't
discussed the problem much

When askel if college sports
needed "cleaning up," Jordan
"Not necessarily. There are some
corrections needed, of course. I
don't think it's as bad as it's made
out to be."
AS FOR the boys who play the
sports, Jordan said:
"There are a lot of good ath-
letes who are fine boys. I don't
mean fine athletes; I mean fine
boys. It's a shame to have the
criticisms heaped on these fine
boys because of a few."
Jordan's views of what should
be done.on college sports:
Bowl games-a matter for indi-
vidual schools to decide, the
coaches think. (Speaking for him-
self, though, he's against them.)
Spring practice-controlled but
not abolished altogether.
Recruiting-coaches feel there's
no reason why they can't sell their
institution to a youngster in the
same 'Way that any other teacher
can. "I think each institution
must work out its own salvation,"
Athletes-they should be treat-
ed like any other students; they
should take the same courses, and
keep up with their classes.

The Wisconsin Board of Regents
came under fire Tuesday from the
University of Wisconsin Daily Car-
d~nal for giving head footbal
coach Ivy Williamson a salary hike
which will put him in a bracket
second only to Wisconsin's Presi-
dent E. B. Fred.
Scoring the hike as a "gross dis-
tortion of values," the student
paper noted that Williamson's new
$14,000 salary, effective Jan. 1,
"may well be the only sum which
will keep a highly competent
coach, as Williamson certainly is,
at the university."
"If the choice must be made
between either evaluating the
football . coach at a level second
only to the university president or
taking the chance of losing a high-
calibre coaching staff and with it
Wisconsin's hopes for athletic ac-
claim, we had hoped the university
would have chosen the latter," the

Survey is a nation-wide radio and
television research organization.
Competing with programs on
sports and an adventure series,
the Telecourse has an average
rating of 8.7. The second most
popular program is three points
behind. Telecourse viewing audi-
ence is estimated at between
80,000 and 100,000.
These statistics refute the opin-
ion originally expressed by Prof.
Wilbert J. McKeachie of the psy-
chology department, who teaches
the telecourse on human behavior.
When the educational series was
instigated, he predicted, "There
will be a conflict between educa-
tion and art, and I believe enter-
tainment will win out."
