Big Ten Reveals
Conference Gives Dugger Another
Year of Football Eligibility for 'M'

CHICAGO - () - The power-
ful Big Ten yesterday too its
first stand on live televisio of
football games by voting for re-
gional control as opposed to the
NCAA's controversial nationally
The conference, however, made
it clear that the regional plan
merely was a preference and that
it has no desire for an all-out
fight with the National Collegiate
Athletic Association over TV pol-

K. L. (TUG) Wilson, Big Ten
commissioner, will introduce the
regional plan to the NCAA TV
committee which meets Jan. 5-6
in Washington, D.C., prior to the
organization's national conven-
There was little hope that re-
gional television will supplant
the national program.
"It's merely our preference,"
said Wilson. "Ana we will intro-
duce it as such to the NCAA
committee. The committee prob-
ably won't even\take it to the con-
WILSON explained that the Big
Ten, first of all, is and has always
been opposed to live football tele-
"But if there is live TV, then
we would like to see it done re-
gionilly," he added. "That would
mean that each of the NCAA's
eight districts would have its
own TV policy-a sort of states'
rights idea. The NCAA would
have little if nothing to do with
Some Big Ten officials were
quick to point out that such a re-
gional program would reduce TV
revenue since proceeds would be
based on a local rather than na-
tional scale. But a more import-
ant disadvantage, they said, would
" be slicing into local football at-
THUS, the Big Ten's regional
suggestion amounts only to a mild
slap at the present NCAA national
controlled program as being far
from the answer to fotball tele-
vision. They admit regional tele-
casting also is not the answer,
but probably the better plan of
"Local people best know their
local problems," said a Big Ten
spokesman "Under the regional
plan, each district could deter-
mine whether it wants limited,
unrestricted or no television at
The Big Ten said if the NCAA
national program is continued in
1953, it should be done without
"further exceptions"-such as giv-
ing special permission for televis-

such case mentioned was the
NCAA's permission to telecast the

game following the Army-Navy

"WE WANT the NCAA to devel-
op a television plan as soon as
possible for. 1953 so we all will
know where we are going," said
Winding up its annual winter
meeting, the Big Ten designated
"sportsvision" of Chicago and
Los Angeles as official producer
of conference football films for
TV. The commerical group re-
ceived permission to cover all
Big Ten games and pool the
film for optional use of schools
for coaching review, local TV
releases or for a conference-wide
program authorized for such
uses as "game of the week."
The conference also approved
public announcement in the fu-
ture of violators oZ its code on re-
cruiting and subsidizing. Such an-
nouncement will come from Wil-
son's headquarters in Chicago as
cases are received and determined.
BIG TEN regulations provide
for warning, reprimanding, sus-
pending or expelling institutions
found guilty of infractions.
Penalties invoked the last
year and identity of the vio-
lators, as uncovered by inten-
sive investigations by Wilson,

policy of providing names and

NEW YORK - () - The na-
tion's best ball-carrier in major

mark with 1,570. San Francisco's
Ollie Matson rushed for 1,566 and

EAST LANSING - (A') - A bat-
tle of sophomore centers here last
night saw a youngster with the
captivating name of Bob (All-
American Boy) Armstrong win the
decision to give Michigan State a
62-51 victory in its basketball
opener with Marquette.
Armstrong, six-foot-eight and a
high school sensation from the
Dutch community of Holland, was
playing his first game as a start-
er for MSC coach Pete Newell.

GOING against him for Mar-
quette was Russ Wittberger, a six-
foot-six incher who saw consider-
able game experience as a fresh-
man last year.
Wittberger, who tried to car-
ry Marquette on his back, was
high for his team with 21 points.
In the third quarter he made 10
points and was the only Mar-
quette scorer. Armstrong pushed
in 19 points in the first three
quarters and then was retired
when Michigan State led 44-34.
After the score was tied 14-all
at the end of the first quarter
Michigan State edged ahead 29-24
at the half. MSC kept building in
the third period, that saw Witt-
berger the only Marquette scorer.

MICHIGAN STATE played tight
control ball in the first three quar-
ters. The game opened up in the
closing quarter as Newell started
sending in his substitutes on the
strength of a 10-point lead.
Al Ferrara, with 14 points, and
Pete Stackhouse, with 13, both
forwards, were the other effec-
tive scorers for Michigan State.
Bob Van Vooren, with eight
points, was second high for Mar-
