Williams jaaid, Dean Vinced him that the. athletes had vi- olated'conference rules and that he r finally agreed to their dlsqualiflca- 'tion. . ;_ ". . . * Jessup Did Not Know; ; The matter was not · discussed with President Walter A, Jessup Lauer said. "The conference made it impossible for us to do anything but- disqualify the athletes, if we :wanted to remain a first rate institution," he added. ' Kelleher sought to show that Iowa could have played good schools : even if it had remained outside the conference. Lauer admitted games probably could have been scheduled · with Notre Dame and Southern California but said he believed Nebraska would have cancelled its game had Iowa played ineligible men. "Then a question of expediency, rather than ethics, controlled the situation, didn't it?" asked Kelteher. "If a group has a certain system ·of ethics," Lauer answered, "then you must follow that system." Tells of Paper Affair. He related his investigation of charges-of professionalism against Oran Pape of Dubuque, . backfield star, and Pape's finally admitting he had played" a .professional game after Big. Ten investigators had found conflicting evidence and recommended that the case be closed. Lauer admitted .that he had had no experience as an athletic director before he took the Iowa position, but on cross examination by Henry : Walker he said he previously had done some coaching. He told Walker that Belting gave him no assistance in assuming his new off ice .and charged that the files had been em- ·ptied. He said Belting's secretary and Orville Simmons, formerly as- 'sistant director, : told him Belting had taken their contents. No indication waa given, this morning of when the committee will go to Iowa City. Representative George Miller of' Shelby county was the .only member listening to the .testimony, the others being detained by legislative duties. LEADERS FIGHT ON CITY POLITICS v Progressives Seek Peace in Own Ranks While Major Parties Battle. WASHINGTON, March 25. W) -- W i t h the major political parties wrangling sarcastically over the two biggest cities in the country, progressives sought today to eliminate differences in their own ranks. The republican national committee thinks and said that dem- ocratic-controlleo!. New York is "a sink of corruption," Chairman Shouse of the democratic natlona committee retorted yesterday with mention of what he saw as the "Big Bill Thompson-Al Capone combination" in the G. O. F. or ganizatlon. With this controversy in. mind progressives watched to see wheth er Senator Norbeck, republican South Dakota, and Representativ Laguardia, republican, New York could get together 'ou a legislativ program for the, next con'gress. Norbeck criticized Laguardia' minimum demands as not contain Ing acceptable- farm relief plans. Chairman Shouse saw the repub lican description of New York a an effort to keep away from rea issues. The corruption charge, h said, "is, of course, a complete ans wer to the criticisms of the Hoove administration, the record of whic must be the issue in Mr. Hoover 1 campaign for re-election." He said it had- not occurred t democrats that conditions in Chi: cago were "proof positive that Mr. Hoover had failed in hia presidency." ' . , . Martial Law Prevails in Revolt Torn Lima .
