FRANCKHAUSER, Offensive Lineman Iowa Will Offer Aid Plan Change IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP)-The state university of Iowa will propose an amendment to the Big Ten financial aid plan at the December meeting of conference officials in Chicago, athletic director Paul Brechler said yesterday. The proposal was drafted by the state university of Iowa board in control of athletics, Brechler said. Iowa and some other Big Ten schools have opposed the present aid plan since it was adopted by a majority vote of conference schools early this year. Brechler and Dr. Robert Ray, faculty representative on the board, said the proposed amendment would eliminate the "need" principle in giving grants in aid to athletes. The proposed Iowa plan would permit a university to award an athlete a scholarship and "continue to make such awards on the basis of such de-termination of need as it wishes." , However, the award could not exceed the cost of board, room, books, tuition or fees, and $15 per month for incidental expenses. Scholastic requirements would remain the same as now are in effect. Brechler and Ray said the Iowa plan would "make unnecessary the conference superstructure now required to determine need" and parents would not have to provide the "mass of personal financial data now required." HICKS WILL APOLOGIZE IF IU GUILTY BLOOMINGTON (AP) Coach Bob Hicks said Monday he will talk to his football players after they return from Thanksgiving vacation and try to find out who started two fights in the Indiana-Purdue game last Saturday. If Indiana men were at fault, "Hicks said, he will apologize to Purdue. The brawls, in the last minutes of the game, involved several hundred spectators as well as the players.

MSU's Spartans seized team, compared with three each taken by Ohio State and dethron ed Iowa. The other first team position went to Michigan's great halfback, Jim Pace. The all-conference unit, selected in a poll of AP writers who "cover" Big Ten games, had one of the heaviest and most hardhitting backfields ever honored in the voting. The backfield quartet, averaging 196 pounds, includes Pace, Ohio State's Don Clark and two Michigan State stars, halfback Walt Kowalczyk and quarterback Jim Ninowski. Although he regularly played halfback, the 205-pound Kowalczyk, a terrific power runner, was placed at fullback. The only unanimous choice was Iowa tackle, Alex Karras, who was the lone repeater from the AP's 1956 All-Big Ten team. Kowalczyk missed a sweep by only one first place vote.

(AP) Max Truex, a short, stocky, former Olympian from the University of Southern California, set a phe nomenal record of 19:12.3 in the NCAA cross country run here yes terday. Truex, attracted to California from Warsaw, Ind., wasn't even breathing hard as he shattered the old record of 19:36.7 for the four-mile course set by Charles Capozzoli of Georgetown in 1952. Truex, a 23-year-old junior who packs great endurance in his 5-foot-5, 130-pound frame, finished 120 yards ahead of John Macy of Houston, second in 19:35. Notre Dame won the team title, its first in the 19-year history of the meet, beating out defending champion Michigan State. Houston was third in the team competition, Syracuse placed fourth and Kansas was fifth. Macy set a fast early pace, leading from the V2 mile to the three - mile mark, but Truex overhauled him shortly after and breezed in from there. Truex was wearing mittens and a stocking cap and coated his legs with cocoa butter to ward off the bit ter 26-degree cold. ' "I felt great all the way," said the record-breaker, a member of the last U. S. Olympic team. "I just paced myself and didnt even kick out into a sprint at the end." Jerry Smartt also of Houston, finished close behind his second place teammate in 19:41. Minnesota's Leonard Edelen, the Big Ten individual champion, was fourth at 19:44 and Crawford Ken nedy of Michigan State, winner of the IC4A run, placed fifth, with a 19:44.5 performance. Walt McMew, the defending champion, was in eighth place with 20:00.1. Mitchell Eying Kansas Job? FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.

Gazette sports editor Gus Schrader yesterday quoted Evashevski as saying the coach told his team before last Saturday's 21-13 victory over Notre Dame: "Don't you sophomores and juniors get your hopes up because I'll be back chewing at you next season."
