By L. E. SKELLEy Associated Press Sporls Writer ' DBS MOJNES, (JP)_The University of Iowa athletic board Wednesday was reliably reported to be sharply split over the problem of naming an athletic director to succeed Ossic Solem. Although a majority of the board was known lo favor the appointment of E. G. (Dad) Schroedcr, professor of gymnasium in the physical education department, as athletic director, a powerful minority bloc does not favor Ihe elevation of the veteran professor to the directorship. Schroeder, it was'learned from an authoritative source, has the recommendation of the sifling committee, composed of three board members, and this strength may prove sufficient lo result in a majority vote for Schroeder when the board conducts its next meeting, probably Sunday. On Siflinp Committee. Members of the sifting committee are Prof. C. M. Updegratf, board chairman; Prof. F. G. Higbee and Prof. : Rudolph Kcuver. At least three members of the 10 man board are known lo be opposed lo Schrocder's appointment, and favor instead the selection of either Moray Eby, Coc college coach and director, and Gordon Lotkc, an all-America fullback at Iowa in 1922. While there still is wide disagreement over the athletic directorship, it was learned that Gus Dorais is the prevailing favorite for the football conehship. The board is much nearer to complete agreement on choosing the Detroit university coach than on the selection of an alhlelic director. . ' Dnrais Gels Support. Dorais, supported by various alumni groups, has replaced Eddie Anderson, Holy Cross coach and another former Notre Dame star, as the leading favorite with the board. There remain, however, several problems -connected with the final selection, and another shift is entirely possible. Although Chairman Updegraff announced after an eight-hour session Monday night "there was nothing further to report," it was learned from reliable sources that the board went through a stormy session. It also was disclosed that the same members who now buck Schroeder for the Athletic directorship originally favored Otto Vogel, Iowa baseball coach, for the position. They switched their support to Schroeder w i t h i n the last two weeks. May Be Compromise. There still may be a compromise on the directorship. Despite the known majority vote available for Schroeder, the minority group, although possibly unable to secure selection of its candidate, may force the naming of a candidate not listed among the current favorites. A successor lo Bill BoeHer, who w i l l accompany Solcm lo Syracuse university, appears likely to be named soon. Boeltcr has been supervisor of freshman athletics for the last five years. His successor is likely to be an Iowa alumnus. Those under consideration include Locke, Wes Fry, Glen Devine, John Hancock and Wilbur Scantlebury. Leaders Deny Report. Meanwhile, the lenders of the a l u m n i group which has been formed in various Iowa cities to interest Iowa high school students in the university, denied flatly reports that the organization intended to seek more alumni members on the athletic board and would organize independent of the university. Tiic athletic board adopted a resolution at its lasl meeting condemning alleged subsidization of athletes by a certain group of alumni. . "We would welcome the co-op- crnlion of the university in our plan to interest Iowa high school students in the University of Iowa," one leader said.
