Under that ruling, Henderson which last lo State; caij win top honors by heating OuRchita, a: fully expected, in their traditiona' Thanksgiving game at Arkarielphta Should Ouachita upset the Red- dles, Little Rock Junior College would get the title and there wouk be no further qiie.stion to decide. Kuline Is Confli(tin ? Hnt if everything »oes according to form on the field of play. Little Rock may protest the special rul- insr, which, is in conflict with th AIC by-law.s and regulations printed summer; The by-laws stipulate that championships "will be determined the percentage of wins and losses In game.s between members of the conference." They do not specify any members as exceptions and they provide the amendments may adopted only at a regular conference meeting. A ruling adopted April 30, 19+9. ays: "Each game played belween two conference schools shall be counted In compiling official -standings although one -of the teams may not be eligible for the championship tine to iLs [ailure to schedule the minimum number of games." That ruling; .however, Is not Ui- coiporateri in the by-law.s and possibly coilld be overturned by a mail vote. But, -still, there's the by-law specifying only "games between members of ihe conference." r The question undoubtedly will be hot potato at the conference meeting.
