Coach Russell Mosley, di- Jector of the kiddie program ex- |lained that Ihe championship eame scheduled for the lights In Irder to give Blytheville's business lien MI opportunity to see the fiidgetR in action. The Kiddie League was originated _^eais ago by the Chickasaw JilhWic Club under the direction If Bill Godwin, who was then coach ll Elytheville High School. The lurpose of the program was twoTold: to broaden the grammar Ichool recreation program and to familiarize the young grid hope- luls wilh the fundamentals of the • port. ONE ! 2 CROWD BY Sanity Code Revolt? We see where Ihe Southwest Conference has answered reports of a "rebellion" against the articles of the NCAA's janlly code will] n staunch warning to Us member schools lo cut out the lavish parlies and oilier forms of entertainment thrown as Inducement to high school players. To which we say bravo and suggest that other conferences, especially the Southeastern and Southern, which were also mentioned prominently In the revolt reports, take note. Predictions of a revolt by the Southern. Southeastern and Southwestern Conferences against the sanity code were sounded last week by « couple of southern sports writers who said Ihat action against the code would be taken at a meeting of representatives of the three conferences in Atlanta tills weekend. Heads of the three leagues were quick to deny the revolt rumors but admitted that the code would be discussed at the meeting. But so far the Southwest Conference Is the only one that hns indicated It plans to stick by the NCAA's rules. One of the two sports writers re-named the code the "Insanity Code "and supported a revolt because the code hnd been given a year's try and had failed to work. We are inclined to agree with him to a certain extent. The sanity code has failed to work. But why? It's because, truthfully, no one wants It to work. trackers Regain : irst Place with r in Over Pebs In Our Own Bock Yard The sanity code was adopted by the National Collegiate Athletic Association for Ihe purpose of prohibiting Ihe wholesale purchase of high school athletes by colleges. And it carried with in enough stint to make it work but apparently there is no one interested enough lo lorcc the applying of the "stinger" lo schools that step out of line. Loop holes were left and the colleges were quick to find them. And the "buying" of athletes continued on us Itirye, if not » larger,.scute than before such a code was ever dreamed up. We don't have to leave the proximity of our own Blylheville High School to bcaj- out this statement. Several senior members of the Chicks have visited college campuses in the Southeast and Southwest Conferences during the past four or five months and we know of at least one case where the player Involved was, shall we say, received with open pocketbooks. This is bad business. Bad for the sport, the school and the playei involved, But what's being done about it? Absolutely nothing. We tlo not advocate the end of subsidization, nor financial aid to students who are going to college on HII athletic scholarship and who do not have the opportunity lo do odd jobs for spending money on account of thcti athletic commitments, We deem it necessary in a lot of cases but we do think thut the situation has gotten tar out of hand. So far out of hunt that unless something is done, college and high school athletics titiuu a good chance of being ruined.

I In other loop games, the Nash- •ille Vols whipped the New Orleans pelicans, 14-10, and the Chattanoo- Lookouts nipped the Mobile Beans. 4 to 1. The Answer is "No" It has gotten to the point where college scouts spat a nice looking youngster early in the season acid begin hounding him. making him all kinds o( oflers while he is trying to concentrate on completing high school and getting ready for college nnd as a result the young athlete often lags in his senior season robbing himself, his team and his home town of additional state and possibly nation-wide publicity. For an example of this we point to another case here in our own back yard when a University of Arkansas scout paraded boldly Into the Chicks' dressing room dining the Paragould game last September nnd without even Introducing himself to the coaching staff, singled out & couple of Blytlieville players and began talking to them in the presence of their teammates. And as a result Coach Mosley had to nurse along a good case of dissension for the remainder of the season. And to cite a more recent case It has been reported to this department that one Southeast Conference School has already started alter Robert. Reid, the Chicks 180-pound fullback, who, incidcntly, is only it sophomore In high school. Should there be a revolt against the sanity code? Our answer is definitely In the negative.
