(UP) —Directors of the Southern Association are In Nashville today for their annual schedule meeting, and several Important matters In addition to schedules lire sure to be discussed. One proposal has been made to lower Hie player limit to 17, or perhaps 1G men. Another would give players a bonus lo encourage them to staj^in the Southern loop, and the league must formally approve the league's mid-Winter decision to abandon the split season and return to the ShauBhncssy playoff. Then there's the usual topic of conversation at such meetings these days, manpower.

(UP)— William A, (Bill) Alexander, for 25 years head football coach at Georgia Tech, has resigned. He will remain at Tech, however, as athletic director, and head of the school's physical training program. Robert Lcc (nobby) Dodci, back- Held coach at Tech since 1932, was named to succeed Alexander as head coach. Alexander's retirement from act- ice coaching duties- takes from the game one of its most colorful leaders, a bluff, straight-talking man whose teams were famous for their razzle- play and upset victories. One of the greatest upsets came last October when Tech's underdog team whipped Navy 17 to 15 i;i n wild, spectacular game. Alexander took over as head coach at Tech In 1920, succeeding the late John W. Hctsmnn..In 25 years Tech has won six Southeastern Conference championships. Alexander is a member of the National Football Rules Committee and a former president of the Football Conches Association. In 1043 Southeastern sports writers voted him coach of (he year. Alexander's decision to quit came as no surprise as it had been generally understood last Pall that the 1844 season would be his last as an active coach.
