Ristol Hats From ... $7.50 to $15100 CARL BELL Associated Press sports Writer There new meat for the hun> ers of tunl in athletics. Having worn the field of college sports pretty thin with investigations, allegations and regulations during th6 past decade, these folks or their counterparts now are training their sights on the high schools. In Atlantic City, N. J., last weekend a group of educators known as the Educational Policies Commission charged that "bad practices that mar athletics" are prevalent in "too many American schools." These practices were defined as pampering athletes, whipping up student frenzy before games and exploiting athletic competition as "a good show to be sold to the public as vaudeville." Johnin Burnett, who as executive secretary of the Arkansas Athletic Association has the job of detecting any -such practices in this state's high schools, feels that these educators "went to extreme" in their criticism. While there may be rotten ap- nles in every barrel, Burnett believes Arkansas prep shorts have kept their skirts clean. "If there are any outstanding examples of these bad practices in nrkansas," ho said, "we don't know about them. We've been watching for those sort of things all along. We started working real hard to prevent undesirable emphasis 'a few years ago when the college athletic scandals broke." Actually, Arkansas high schools were moving in an opposite direction from the colleges in the spprts field right • along, while the colleges were putting more and more emphasis on sports, the prep group was tightening its regulations and their enforcement. ^ For instance, it hasn't been too many years since leading high school football teams recruited out-of-town talent left and right. Or since the age limit for high school athletic participation was considerably higher and, even then, generally ignored or secrc- tarly violated. Burnett admits that "pampering of athletes is apparent in some Arkansas high schools > where IT'S WELL APPRECIATED-This Korean w&if finds It hard to believe his eyes as he deceives a man-size drumstick from Cpl.

He says this generally is just a case of giving : an athlete a "complimentary D", but there was one recent case, of the athlete who made his high school '' honor roll but failed in his first semester at college. ' The Educational Policies Commission also recommended that post session competition be abolished. Arkansas dropped its postseason football playoffs a year ago, but there certainly is no inclination to abandon the popular state basketball tournaments. "Wo like to climax our basketball season with the state championship tournaments," said Burnett. "However, we 'would like to do away with some of the regular season tournaments. There are entirely too many of'these!" CNJURCES FATAL TEXARKANU, Wl Jerry Wayme Perry 11-year-old .son of Mr. and Mrs. M. S.

Slade, of Norfolk, Va., Weighed 178'<:>, Henry 186. Jimmy's : speed had Henry baffled through half the fight and then he added to Henry's confusion. by rallying with telling blows every time it appeared he had been hurt himself. "He only ; hurt me once, in. the ninth," Slade .said. j Last night's victory might earn Slade a rematch with Johnson: or possibly one of th£ next shots: at Archie Moore's title. Henry, however, was anxious to get another crack at Slade. . "I was bothered because, of: a virus infection I had a month ago," he said after the fight. , Judge Harry Dwyer saw .the fight for Slade, 99 points to 91. Judge Bob Kilmartin had Slade. ahead 97-95, but Referee Charley Roy- itplds called it a diaw, 94-94. Cards Open Special Training By JOE.RElCHLER Fin. UP) — Until the big league clubs begin their spring training drills in Earnest next week, the Center ot baseball activity in Florida will be In this normally quiet city of Deland, 25 miles from Dayton Beach.

The site is a former nnvnl a'r base which includes three flaying fields, housing eating and recreational necomodations. Unlike other pro-training schools, which limit the number from 12 to 2!> players, this camp houses some 100 players at present. When the advance camp ends on March 7, the grounds will be used as ntraining base for the top nine of the Verdi- nals' 20 farm clubs. The other clubs will continue to train in Albany, Go. The >camv. which Is expected to cost about $200,000 n year to operate, is in line with the progress sivo program launched by Cardinal President August A. Busch, who refuses to become alarmed by talk of recession in baseball. The sportsman-brewer, who purchased the club from Fred Saigh last March for $3,750,000 and paid $1.100,000 for Sportsman's Park, already has shelled but an additional $1,000,000 for the rehabilitation of the organization and some $400,000 for new players. "We have faith in baseball as a business as well as a national pastime," Busch explained. "It is our aim to make the Cardinals one' of the strongest, if not the strongest organization in baseball. We hare hopeful of winning a pannenat this year. But if we can't we^ feel we most certainly will win a championship within the next two or three years."
