TV i- ' , M *^'l i r '^ l . < v i; Rule* of Procedure • For Study of Code [ - Set Up by Committee . r-i CHICAGO, Ch»inb*rUta April 6. (/P)— The r NCAA has put an end to internal •'; squabbling over • selections for Its ]t postseason basketball tournament by doubling the Held to 16 teams and r 'automatically including 10 major conference' champions. • -The method for selecting tourney tntrles Is being worked out by a "committee"" headed by Arthur (Dutch) Lonborg, new athletic director at the University of Kansas. It was reliably learned today that champions ol the nation's 10 major conferences will go and ihe other six berths,will be filled from so- called ^'members at large." ' Generally regarded as the dominating conferences are Pacific Coast, Big ,Ten, Skyline Six, Big Seven, Border,:Missouri Valley, Southwest, Southeast, Southern and Ivy League. There will be no fixed limit on the number of teams chosen from any-one of the NCAA's eight districts':'other-'than, certifying eight from the east nnd eight from the west for divisional playoffs. Thus, if a smaller school or an independent has a fine record against represetative opposition, it could ' be'selected -along with the major conference winner in the same district. * Heretofore, \itlists of top conferences usually j received the trip.while other worthy teams in the same district were,bypassed There was only one team from each' of the eight districts'-'-iirr-the field. Playoff Necessity Leneoed The new method also would lessen the" necessity of playoffs, such as Bradley, s winher of the 1 Missouri Valley' jppnieren'ce, 'meeting Kansas, Blg'seven.champion, to decide the 1950 tourney' Spot for the Fifth 'District^ Both schoois~would go. And if 'a situation arose In the Fifth District' such as" this year—probably three, would go. The Selection Committee had a hard time deciding whether Kansas, Kansas State or Nebraska, co-champions of the Big Seven, should be given the nod. When Kansas was finally chosen, rumblings from K-State were heard throughout the NOAA. In addition to eliminating family rows, the expanded NCAA field also has prospect "of rubbing some luster off the 12-tcam National Invitational meet at the New .York's Madison Square Garden. It Is no secret that NCAA officials have frowned upon schools playing both the NI.T. and NCAA tourneys, such as ' Kentucky did last year and Bradley this sear. C C N.Y. winner of both, was named-NCAA district representative only, when H showed such promise during the NIT. competition." Usually NJ.T. invitation "leele'rs' are issued weeks ahead. Some teams have been prone to accept because of uncertainty of being chosen for the NOAA. Much of this dissolves under the new setup, and the enlarged field of 16 may make it a little more difficult for the NJ.T to get the quality teams it wants, , To Keep Playoffs The NCAA undoubtedly will keep Its western and eastern preliminary playoffs in Kansas City and New York, respectively. But the flnu four-team competition likely will be shifted In 1951 from Madison Square Garden to Minnesota which has the largest university owned arena in the country (18,000 capacity.) There are also signs of a movement for an NCAA ruling that no member team can compete In both the NJ.T. and NCAA tournaments It is questionable, however, If I will gain much support. Meanwhile, athletic chiefs of 20 conferences today continued discus sion of making the Sanity Cod more pliable. "Rules of procedure" were a greet upon yesterday. These are !-To an alyze prevailing college athletl practices governing aid to athleti and decide which ones are good an which are bad and 2—To analyz the Sanity Code and see if the prac tices which are considered accent able can be pursued under it, and if not, what modifications would needed. • Bombers Rout Bloodhounds By75-54Count HOLLAND, Mo., Apr. 8. — The professional St. Louis Bombers set a fast pace In the first quarter. and, then horse-played around for the other three with some.'fancy- dan ball handling and still managed to man handle the Arkansas'Blood- hounds 75-54 In nn exhibition basketball game here yesterday afternoon.
