House Subcommittee Will Take Look At NCAA's Football TV Policies WASHINGTON (AP) — A House subcommittee will take an "exploratory" look at the National Collegiate Athletic Assn.'s football television policies next month to see If they violate the monopoly laws. Chairman Celler (D-NY) of the house judiciary committee said today college TV practices "appear to result In the public being deprived of seeing the best football games available." The Investigation was proposed by Rep. Hillings (R-Calif.>. Celler told Hillings in a letter that the antimonopoly subcommittee will begin "exploratory" hearings in mid-February on the whole question of "antitrust problems in regulated industries." He urged Hillings to testify. The NCAA fixes the program for televising college football games on a sational and regional basis. | In general, it permits only one game to be televised on a Satur day. Eight weeks are devoted to a national game of the week and five weeks to regional games. Hillings first broached the sub ject on Jan. 14 when he suggested in a letter to Celler that the committee look into "the activities o the NCAA to -ietermine if its con trol of televising of football game amounts to a monopoly." The Californian noted that th judiciary group's study of pr baseball five years ago producec no legislation. But he said the hear ings "caused baseball to clean 1U own house.

Kentucky, moving up from fourth to third, swapped places with North Carolina State. Both are two-time losers and Kentucky had just a two-point edge on the Wolfpack in the voting. Vanderbilt fell from fifth to seventh, in an unexplainable shift of favor, and barely held that spot from North Carolina. The Tarheels, who dumped N.C. State last week, were just two points behind Vandy. Once-beaten Illinoir edged up from sixth to fifth, followed by Temple, which jumped from eighth after running its mark to 11-0.

Tilt back that stetson, podner. and listen to a dissenting opinion from Ken Loeffler, who plugs for basketball. "With all the new gyms down thisUway," says the Texas A. and M. coach, a novice in the land of cactus and air-conditioned Cadillacs, "we'll be caught up, and pronto, with other sections of the country. '•Rice and Southern Methodist play as good a brand of basketball as anybody. They have the big men. I saw them beat Kansas and Kansas State. "With big arenas, which means big interest, a situation comparable to I'"; North Carolina area's growth may develop." Loeffler, former LaSalle of Philadelphia coach, has got to live with his neighbors in the cow country, but he's never been one to evade Texas, Jerry Mallett of Baylor, Jim Krebs of SMU and Dick O'Neal of Texas Christian. The boy who has them gasping is Rice's 6-11 sophomore, Templft ' Tucker. "He could play for most any team," says Loeffler, "although he'd have to be used inside. He tires quickly, but Igjhink he's grown too fast and may catch up with himself. He has a beautiful touch and a variety of effective shots. They tell m« he's a nice boy who will learn." » * * What's with the Texas Aggies?

That makes Rory Calhoun, winner of all Ills 17 professional bouts, worth noting. Calhoun is billed out of White Plains, N. Y., but he was born in Atlanta, Ga., 21 years ago. Last night's victory over Jerry Luedee of New Haven, a unani- mous decision in 10 rounds at St. Nicholas Arena, was his first local main go. He weighed 160i/ 2 to Luedee's 164'/z pounds tor the savage battle. • It was appropriate that Luedee should be the opp'onent. They met once before in a Madison Square Garden preliminary, Nov. 26, 1954, cut from six rounds to four to fit a TV schedule. Until last night, that was the only fight Luedee had "Everyone here has been wonderful to us, including the sports writers. My six-year-old son loves it, I don't know if I can take the repeated lickings till we get off the floor—or the summer heat. "But that's life an coaching." Then a wistful sigh: "If we could only raise a few Tom Golas. . . ." lost in 18 starts. Now It's two out of 19. Referee Larry Napp and Judge Charley Rosen saw it S-4-1 and Judge Al Singer 5-3-2, all for Calhoun. The Associated Press card for Calhoun was 6-3-1.
