Don't Envy Grid Coach Little Things Can Upset Career, Snavely Tells Group •Tjy WILL GRIMSLEY WASHINGTON lift— Don't envy the college football coach—it's a life of hard knocks and few rewards, says Carl Snavely. outgoing president of the American Football Coaches Association. You're on top of the world today and A bum tomorrow . . . there's always the danger of envious associates . . . you have to win half your games or else . . . chances are you're through before you've hit your prime. Snavely, himself now out of a Job after brilliant successes at Cornell and North Carolina, painted this depressing picture last night in an address to the nation's coaches at the annual Coach of The Year dinner. Speakf From Experience Congratulating Michigan State's Clarence • Biggie Munn. the 1052 Coach'of The Year, the white-haired former Tarheel mentor said: "Some of our great coaches win their share and he's on top of the world. Then a new hidden danger besets him, envy, and jealousy on the part of important individuals, and one such enemy high in the university family, one displeased man on his staff, can bring disaster to the best of coaches." Snavely Issued this cautionary word RS if drawing upon his own experiences. He was let out at North Carolina after winning two games and losing six last fall. He has a faculty status at reduced salary if he wank It. But, at 54, he's looking for another coaching job. •Students' Aid Asked Arkansas high school athletes themselves, rather than the schools, are being asked to raise the sports nuota In this year's March of Dimes. Allan lierry, the polio fund campaign's state sports chairman, has suggested that the athletes would feel more like they were taking part in the drive if it is put on a "personal" basis. Berry has urged school administrators to put the boys and girls in of Dimes through proceeds of basketball games, collections at games, special sports promotions and assemblies.

Trie Mountaineers have a 1-2 record now. and Rogers -Daily News Sports Editor Paul Rankin says the team "may be pressured into shape for winning" by tourney time.

NCAA Decision on Football TV Today By ARTHUR EDSON WASHINGTON (AP) —The National Collegiate Athletic Association faces a decision late today on whether "it. should keep a tight hold on televising college football games or whether it should allow each school to do as it pleases. The best guess on the outcome: another thumping verdict for controlled television. A substitute motion by Pennsylvania, seconded by Notre Dame, to allow each colleg to make its own TV arrangements, seemed likely to attract little support. No definite time was set for the vote, but late afternoon appeared to be a good guess. And if the boys get too wound up in their oratory, they may not "get around to voting until tomorrow. Some Complained Although many television fans have complained about the NCAA football diet that, generally speaking, gave them one nationally, tpl- evised game a week, the TV committee stuck by Its guns yesterday in a 39-page report. - "Television continues to be a serious threat to the welfare of college football." the report said. That led to this conclusion: "Supervision of college football telecasts must be maintained./' The report was assailed by Chris J. Witting, managing director of the DumontTV network. In a statement last night he said its recommendation "completely fences in the area of operation for 1&53." In a roundtable discussion, Francis Murray or Pennsylvania and Ed Moose Krause and the Rev. Edmund . Joyce of Notre Dame.argued that'' .he American way is to have free competition. But no other college official "rose to support them. Father Joyce took exception to one sentence In theVeport which read: "We regret that two Institutions— the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Notre Dame—saw' fit repeatedly to attack the motives of their fellow members to bring discredit upon a program which had the backing of an overwhelming majority of the NCAA." "Infelicitous wording," Father Joyce called it. And he added: ' "The University of Notre Dams certainly is not attacking the mo- J lives of the Television Committee. We have never done anything to sabotage the program,"- •. Robert A. Hall of Yale, chairman of the 10-man television committee, eaid he would refer the sentence to the group again. But he gave his opinion on the spot. "I consider It a temperate statement,"-Hall said. . •• .
