Limited Athletic Scholarships Recommended For War Vets BIRMINGHAM, Aln., Aug. 31 i UP) r— Southeastern conference icpieseiitatives wound up their posl-\vM footlmll huddle yesterday afternoon with n recommendation that athletes attending college at, gournineiu expense under the Ol Bill of Rights be entitled to athletic scholarships limited to room, hoard and Iftundry., , The conferees agreed that time spent In .the service would not affect n returning veteran's iiUitetic career, and proposed that pre-war college gridiron pnrticSpnliaii oi l r ss than halt a yenr be erased from the veteran's record. Burlier the officials, whose recommendations await final ticlion by the SEC in December, called lor n unified national football rule book based, on a general tightening of regulations. A standing committee wns named to confer with ,other conferences on uniform gridiron rules. The conference proposed that a maximum - of 75 athletic scholarships be awarded by each of its .members on a contract basis comparable to tliat of pro ball clubs, in an effort to eliminate player snatching at the beginning of a season, Under this proposal a player ineligible lo play lor an- flthcr team once tic signed a college contract. Other conference re:ommenda- Uons to emerge were: A rotating schedule of games nr- langea so teams would play all other conference members in a per- iodof ilirec or four years, the rul not to be binding, however, where such conflicts exist as the Alabanm- Auburn loud. A ban on Jreghumn participation- in any inter-collugmtc sports, aimed nt better scholarship to assure eligibility Jtor varsity contests. Thnl teams and players of conference members be extended the right to appeal a penally not only to the SEC executive committee as formerly, but to the conference as n whott. Thnt name "grants in aid" be substituted for "athletic scholar, ship," a misnomer in the conference's opinion. Thai the $10 monthly universlty- . payed salary which formerly furnished players \vipi spending money be abolished.
