NCAA Ethics Committee In Session KANSAS CITY 1*1 — There were strong indications that the Ethics Committee of the Notional Collegiate Athletics Assn. considered at least one major case here yester day. NCAA officials said they could not, discuss what occurred in the meeting of the committee, which studies allegations that the NCAA'S code of ethics has been violated. However, reliable sources have tald the committee would hear charges that Jack Gardner vlolnt ed the code in influencing two bus ketball players when he moved from Kansas State College to Utah University as basketball coach in 1953. Two outstanding Big Seven Con ference basketball players trans ferred to Utah with Gardner. They were Gary Bergen of K-State anc Art Bunte of Colorado. The committee met at the Hole Muehlebach. Registered at the same hotel yesterday were Gard ner of Salt Lake City, and three Kansas State officials — Lawrence (Moon) Mullins. Athletic Director Tex Winter, basketball coach, and Dr. R. I. Throckmorton, faculty representatives. Recommendations of the committee must go to the NCAA coun ell which will determine whether anything shall be made public about the investigations.

(AP) — A week or so ago, Aransas Coach Bowden Wyatt said his foothall Razorbacks vere winning because of a "mental edge" over Uieir oppo- ents, and commented, "God help us if we ever lose it." The Razorbacks lost it Saturday fternoon. and also lost their first ame of the season 21-14 to South- rn Methodist. There's little doubt that SMU had ic superior football team at Rnzor- iack stadium, but for the first Ime this season, Arkansas nlso was shaded In the "will-to-win" epartment. The Mustangs, which had to win o stay in the race for the Southwest Conference championship, rere "up" for the contest, and as result ran over the Razorbacks .Imost at will. Arkansas couldn't seem to get going until SMU had a 21-polnt cad, and by that time It was too ate. Varioui Theories Undoubtedly, various theories will je advanced for the Arkansas loss, the first by the Razorbacks after even straight victories this year. fs been said that Arkansas should ,ave opened vip with Its passing attack earlier than it did; others have traced the defeat to the pushing SMU ground attack which cut gaping holes In the Arkansas ine. It's also been noted that Arkanas' vaunted pass defense had its worst day of the season. Whatever the primary reason, here's one factor which can't be overlooked—that rugged Arkansas schedule. Prior to Saturday's game, the Razorbacks had met and conquered ilx major opponents on conaecu- Jve Saturdays — Texas Christian. Baylor, Texas, Ole Miss, Texas A4M and Rice. That undoubtedly, s as rough—If not the roughest— ichedule played by any major foot>a!l power In the nation. Ju«t Worn Out The Razorbacks were just plain worn out, and showed It for three quarters. The Arkansas lino was outcharged, and the Porker backs seemed to lack that extra zip lecessary to get into the open. Arkansas could manage but 77 /ards total offense in the entire Jlrst half. And .on defense they were run down by a club which was the Interior of at least one ither Arkansas opponent, Ole Miss, The loss threw the • Southwest Conference championship race Into a state of temporary contusion. Ar- :ansas could have clinched the title and the Cotton Bowl bltl which accompanies It by tying SMU. In oslng, the Rnzorbncks dropped Into second place In the conference standings with a 5-1 record. SMU took the lead with a loop record of three victories iifiiiinsi no losses and one tic. The Mustangs still must play Tcxns Christian and Baylor, so Arkansas still las a chance to win. Baj-ior Han Chance Baylor, once beaten In the conference, also still Ls in contcnlloi for the title. The Bears, in addition to SMU, must play Rice. There's a chance that Baylor and Arkansas could tie for the crown, If this should occur, Arkaasas would go to the Cotton Bowl because the Razorbacks hnvc whipped the Bears. Despite the loss to SMU, Arkansas hung up its Southwest Conference record since ID-IC. when the Razorbncks posted an Identical 5-1 mark and lied Rice for the championship . SMU looked like a winner from the start of Saturday's game. At tho end of the first half, only the most fanatically loyal fans still held but hope for an Arkansas victory, and a third SMU scoring drive shortly after the second half began quenched that faint spark. Arkansas didn't get moving until ate in the third quarter, and finally put across two 'touchdowns In the final period. The Inst score cnmc with only two minutes and j 12 seconds still to be played. Leading the SMU assault was Frank Eldom, a swift 100-pound halfback who pierced the Razorback line with more ease than even Rice's great Dicky Moegle. Eldom scored all three SMU touchdowns. He took H 22-yiml p»ss from quarterback Duane Nutt for the first Mustang score. The play ended a 7-yard SMU drive, put together by the Mustangs the second time they got their hands on the ball. EUiom Again A few minutes In the later second quarter, Eidom raced 28 yards for the second SMU touchdown ending an 80-yard march. The big halfback bulled across from the two for the third Mustang score. Ed Bernet kicked all three extra points. The passing of George Wulker plus the brilliant receiving of Preston Caprenter and Joe Thomason finally got Arkansas on the move. The Razorbacks drove HO yards for their first touchdown. Walker's passes accounted for 72 yards of the drive. The talented sophomore hit Thomason from 10 yards out for the tally. The little wlngback from Hot Springs made ft fingertip catch Just Inside the end zone. On the first play following the Vttckolf. SMU's Mnrryn Muvphey fumbled an Arkansas end Walt Mallhews—who .starrrd on defense — recovered. Arkansas promptly drove (o the SMU four, but the Mustangs held. SMU moved out to the Arkansas 37 In six plays, before Eidom fumbled. Again Mathews recoverec the ball for Arkansas, and the Razorbacks' final drive started. With the help of a 1-ynrtt penalty against SMU, Buddy Benson led Arkansas to the Mustnnp 28. Walker then came In and passed to Matlhews who was pulled down 3 More County 11s Close Out Friday Burdette Ploys at Wilson; Osceola Travels to Piggott Mississippi County's 1954 football season turns into its final lap this week with three more county teams closing the year in games Friday night. , Only three games are on the*- " county's slate this week and in these Shawnee.

By GAYLE TALBOT NEW YORK (AP) We have a feeling, amounting practically to an obsession, that the track coach at Oxford University, Franz Stampfl, was talking through his topper the other day when he said to a reporter as follows: "A year ago the four-minute mile was called 'the magic mile.' It was nothing of the sort The four-minute mile was run four times last season and in the next few years it will be run „ „ . »__..._< 1 1. n nu^l *•« l\n Q.RH r\^eoihl™ Inujar- " Tlie lour-nimuie nine was iuii iuui LUIK..J JM^I, u**uw** -..« ... — / 40 times.

Never Again That last statement is taking in a lot of time, but we're willing to be stuck with it If anyone wants to clip this out and confront us with It 50 or 60 years from now.

The big one will be reeled off at Wilson where Wilson's Bulldogs entertain Burdette's Pirates in a game that has little bearing on anything but local prestige. Burdette is currently rated the No. 10 team among the state's Class B schools and will be out to protect this rating. This will be the final game of the season for both teams.
