MARCH 10 §· 1931 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE / v . GRIFFITH WILL NOT GIVE RECORDS (Continued From Pago 1) to his attention and he and I often corresponded about the matter. All of this was at my request." Major Griffth then related the often told the story of how Iowa was ousted from the conference. Tells Old Story. "When the athletic directors met m Chicago in May, 1929, they expected, to complete a four year football schedule," he said. "But because of reports of various slush funds and rule violations on recruiting, several directors said they did not want to frame a long time schedule until such conditions were remedied. Accordingly, the athletic directors ar, pointed a committee of three, An«s Alonzo Stagg of Chicago; George Huff of Illnois and myself to confer with the faculty committee and the conference. The faculty committee of the^conference in turn appointed a committee of three (no names were given) and the two committees conferred. They then examined the reports and determined that Iowa was guilty of violation of the rules with slush funds .and unofficial employment agencies for athletes and relations were ordered suspended effective Jan. 1, 1930." Stagg Called. One of the witnesses called today was Director Stagg, but the morning session adjourned before he could be called to testify. Stagg was known to be one of the leaders in tKe fight to force Iowa to clean · house. He sat around, a very interested spectator, but did not say a word until the committee adjourned and asked him to come back tonight. Other representatives of Iowa and the university present at this mor'n- ing's hearing were E. H. Lauer, who succeeded Belting as director of athletics at Iowa; C. C. Williams, chair- man'of the Iowa athletic board of control; Henry Walker, attorney for the Iowa board of education, and Oral Swift, an assistant attorney general.
