NC AA Seeks To .educe
'Wildcat' Bowl Contests

terday capped 2% years of spade-
work aimed at stamping out what
it terms wildcat, promotions of
football Bowl games.
The collegiate organization em-
powered a nine-man committee to
map a code of st.andards govern.
ing post-season grid iron enter-
* *.*
. .THE MOVE was to restrict to a
reasonable number post - season
games which in the after-wai
boom has mushroomed from a
standard six to an incredible 50
or more scheduled from December
through Jan. 1.
Like the NCAA's "sanity code,"
which strikes at recruiting- of
athletes, the new "bowl blow"
levels off against promoti-anal
schemers who try to fatten their
pocketbooks on the Bo)wl craze.
There is no indication that the
four granddaddies of bowl games
-Rose, Sugar, Cotton and Orange
-will come under NCAA scrutiny.
Athletic conferences, r: er than
personalities or syndicates, reap
the rewards of these so--called reg-
ulation New Year's Day classics.

HOWEVER, an NCAA spokes-
man, perhaps significantly, up-
held the North-South anid East-
West tussles as ideal post-season
affairs staged strictly for worthy
Although the list of post-sea-
son contests is as long as a pawn
shop's credit sheet-and about
as varied-the NCAA spokesman
did not specifically name any
Bowl games which might cone
under attack.
"The NCAA, national athletic

'cdy for some 390 universities and
colleges," the official announce-
ment said, "took steps toward
restricting post - season football
games in San Francisco Jan. 7-8.
The Association's aim is to es-
tablish certain standards for con-
duct of such games and then pre-
scribe that its member institu-
tions cannot compete in games
that do not subscribe to the proper
THE committee studied spon-
sorship, management, participa-
tion and promotion.
"In some cases visiting teams
were not even paid their travel-
ing expenses-they were lucky
to get away with their uniforms
still in tow," the spokesman said.
"Proceeds disappeared."
Pending the drafting of a code
of standards, the NCAA has re-
quested that its members do not
make or renew commitments to
engage in any Bowl games until
after the code is submitted at the
44th annual convention in New
York Jan. 13-14, 1950. This order
excludes games in November or
December, 1949, and January,
** * *
.."SHOULD the convention legis-
late so as to exclude prior commit-'
ments, a requirement of good faith
will be attached and any failure
to honor this request will be con-
sidered a breach of good faith,"
the spokesman explained.
The nine-man committee will
meet in Chicago, Aug. 13-14, and
then submit its completed report
and resulting code to the 44th
NCAA convention in New York,
next January.

Asked how he felt concerning
today's match against the two
Germans, Drobny said:
"You have to remember that the
Germans were in our country for
six years, and I couldn't play ten-
nis during that period. We Czechs
naturally are not too enthusiastic
about the Germans. But tennis
is a game, not politics. They are
mixing sports and politics in
Czechoslovakia now and that is
why we wanted to stay here."
