? o R r In response to Steve Auen's essay in the Charger: The coaching staff and the sports editor of the Charger have a few necessary points to make clear before condemning the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association). The association governs all college athletics and sets up standards that colleges must meet for all athletic programs within each college. The major area of concern involves the student athletes. Colleges recruit senior athletes using some of the below rules and regulations. A. The athlete must meet strict grade point average and meet ACT or SAT testing program minimums. B. The college or university cannot visit a player student until after the season of competition, and cannot exceed certain standards concerning visits to their colleges (i.e. They must meet the same requirement as the same student.) C.Afuture college athlete can only visit a set number of colleges every year. D. Each college has a set 1 number of scholarships they can give over a four year per- By Dean Hoffman iod. If they lose one of their athletes, they won't be able to use the scholarship until he graduates, so they choose their athletes carefully. Each college every year must file r e p o r t s of the recruiting programs to the NCAA which reviews them thoroughly. If a school is found to be illegal they will be placed on probation which means they may not play in any postseason tournaments such as Bowl games or basketball tournaments during the probation period. Last year Notre Dame received $400,000 for appearing in the Cotton Bowl and not many schools would risk loss of opportunity. After the s c h o o 1 s are put on probation they must apply for reinstatement and their programs are again scrutinized under the NCAA laws. Of course, this means much to the college athlete who at a major university can have a free college education in these high-rising times and a fine education for the future. Some colleges recently put on probation are Memphis State, Kansas University and Kansas State University. At the time if Kansas would upset Nebraska and win the Big Eight, then Kansas would be ineligible to represent the Big Eight in either the Cotton Bowl or the Orange Bowl and, consequently, would lose funds it would receive from the bowl games and Nebraska would become a prime bowl contender representative from the Big Eight. But some colleges will try anything to recruit athletes in this decade of 1970, the year of the quarterback and a new breed of college football. STEVE GARBIER and Paul outstanding football players —Charger Photo Simons are Kuemper's Garbier, Simons Lead Young Lancers in Football The freshman football team, under the direction of Coach Donnelly and assistant coaches Kelly and Sexton, closed their gridiron campaign with a 5-3 season record. Victories engulfed Perry, Fort Dodge St. Edmond's, Fort Dcdge North, Fort Dodge South and a smashing victory over Denison. The Knights suffered defeats to Jefferson, Webster City and a heart-breaker to Harlan. Statistics showed the young Knights superior. Scoring 154 pts. to their opponents' 88, and compiling 1800 yards total offense, with 400 of those yards going the air route. Leading the charge for the 1970 freshman football season was Steve Garbier. The young Lancer compiled mountains of statistics both offensively and defensively. He completed 18 of 36 passes for a sparkling 50 per cent, carried the ball for a team high of 551 rushing yards and 30 points. He also made 24 tackles and recovered one fumble. The standout defensive player was Paul S i m o n s. He led the team with 31 unassisted tackles and 18 assisted tackles, intercepted one pass, and was one of the co-captains. Roundtable Reflections —Charger Photo PEGGY HULSING and Mary Gnam practice diligently for cheerleading try-outs. Are all you girls ready for cheerleading? Good luck to all the candidates! Does Father Seuntjens really wear a hair shirt? Have all you guys with tenny- runners learned the dress code yet? Journalism Invades Nursery Rhymes It is evident that children's nursery rhymes exhibit poor journalistic qualities. Therefore, an attempt has been made to re-write several of these rhymes, following the rules of good journalism. "Three Pigs" Friday night, October 24, the homes of two brothers — Bill and Bob Pig, on 605 and 607 Adams Street were destroyed by what appears to have been high winds. No other houses on the block were damaged, but police explained that the Pig residences bordered on the substandard housing district and were made of straw and sticks. That is why they alone were destroyed. A third brother, Barney Pig, disagrees with police as to the cause of the damage. He maintains that it was caused by an undercover terrorist group known as the International Society of Cannibals (ISC) headed by a man called Wolf. Pig stated. "I'm going to wait for Wolf to slide down my chimney and I'm going to catch him at bhe bottom in a kettle of boiling water." Pig was immediately transferred to the State Sanitarium for mental treatmens. "Gold E. Locks" Gold E. Locks, the notorious vandal who, disguised as a fair- haired girl, has terrorized the Woods area for months, managed to escape from the clutches of yet another homeowner Sunday morning. This time it was the Pop A. Bear residence at 502 South Walnut. The Bear family left the house unlocked. Gold entered, damaged some furniture, ate some porridge, and managed to outrun the Bears when they returned and tried to apprehend her. ''Escapee" Residents in the Timbucktoo area are asked to be on the look-out for a woman who walked away from the State Hospital for the Criminally Insane. She is five feet, six inches tall, medium build, wearing prison blues and she has a curl in the middle of her forehead. She is a severe schizophrenic and considered dangerous. One official at the Hospital put it this way: "When she is good she is very, very good, but when she is bad she is horrid." Hey Michelle, has Mr. Sexton taught you the meaning of "Vi- carius"? Mr. Balk, have you taught your wife how to pack a shaving kit yet? Good luck to the wrestlers who are trying to lose the weight they put on during football. Does the physical education department realize that Father Higgins is teaching his drama classes new excercizes? Mr. Van Hecke, thank you for straightening us out on the Eaton Affair — we thought it was something one does at meal time.
