--August 10, 1975* Sunday Caxette-MaU Kttsl Powers May Wave Goodby to NCAA, Texas Coach Says AUSTIN, Tex. (AP) - University of Texas football Coach Darrell Royal says the big schools may wave goodby to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) if small schools insist on getting part of television and bowl game receipts. "And I don't think that would necessarily be bad for athletics," said Royal of the prospect of major schools splitting fron the NCAA. NCAA members begin voting on such proposals as revenue sharing at their a ual meeting in Chicago this week. Royal said only 75 of the 120 schools in NCAA's Division I are involved in bowl games and television packages. The NCAA has more than 700 member schools in three divisions. The entire budget of the NCAA comes from a slice of the television and bowl revenue earned by the 75 biggest schools, Royal said. Couldn't Accept It The small schools can outvote the Division I schools, Royal said, but schools like Texas could not accept that. "I don't think we can divide the television money and bowl receipts with all the schools,"-he said. "I think it would be so diluted and would be spread so thinly that Darrell Royal Won't Divide Money it wouldn't do the other schools that much good. And it would put the major schools out of business." "I think there is a possibility--it certainly would be discussed--for the 120 schools in Division I to later get into a conference room and say, 'What are we going to do?' And maybe it might even be a split and a complete division. "And I don't think that would necessarily be bad for athletics. I think it would be possible for the programs to. go on and exist throughout the country just like they are with a complete division of legislation, rules and regulations for each division." Regarding the Title IX regulations barring discrimination according to sex in schools and colleges, Royal warned against interpreting them on a dollar for dollar basis, either directly or indirectly. "If it's interpreted that way, we would be completely out of business," he said. About the best that could be hoped for, he said, would be passage of an amendment by Sen. John Tower, R-Tex., that would exempt the revenue-producing sports and divide the profits equally between men's and women's programs in other sports. Football in Black Football is the only sport in the black at Texas, he said. It needs $900,000 to perpetuate itself at current levels, but it produces $2.4 million, so there would be $1.5 million to share with women's programs rather than see nearly all of it continue to go to men's basketball, baseball, track, tennis, golf and swimming. Asked why Texas didn't schedule Notre Dame, Southern California, Ohio State or Penn State in order to fill up the 81,000-seat Memorial Stadium if he was worried about money, Royal said: "There's no way to empty a stadium out faster than to lose. And I don't care who you lose to. You play a tough one every week and you become worn down and start losing ball games and they won't be there at the end of the season, either. "It's debatable whether you make more money playing a tough opponent every week or whether you have some that are not quite as tough dribbled in there." COACH? Woman Seeks Position As Football Assistant Karen Small, 24, Seeks Football Coaching Spot Elizabeth, N. J Math Teacher Diagrams a Play ELIZABETH, N.J. (AP) - When the football squad at Jefferson High School shows up for its first practice this fall, chances are good one of the coaches will be a woman. Karen Small, 24, has applied for a job as assistant coach at the boys' school, and head coach Hal Mercer says he wants her for his staff. "I hope to be running drills and helping out in any way I can," said Miss Small, who has been teaching math at Jefferson for two years and now wants to put the "X's" and "O's" to work at something less abstract. "I haven't played much football, but I'm good with statistics, and maybe I can generate some publicity for the team," she said. Miss Small's previous athletic experience was as a 5-foot-4 basketball forward for the Benedictine Academy high school, . supplemented by a steady diet of weekends in front of the television watching pro football with her father John, a postal official in Elizabeth. Her interest in coaching at Jefferson coincides with earning a master's degree in guidance from Montclair State College this summer. "I see my main function as helping the students on the team with some of their personal and scholastic problems," she said. "It will free the other coaches from these chores. "If I'm picked as a coach it will be a good position to be in to help kids, which is what I want to do." Coach Mercer is optimistic about Miss Small's role. "I think she'll help us motivate the players," he said, noting that the Jefferson High team was 0-9 last year and "is trying to get things turned around." WVU to Open Grid Practice Aug. 17 MORGANTOWN - West Virginia University will begin preseason football drills on August 17 as the Mountaineers open their annual camp in Morgantown. The players will check into the Towers residence hall on the Evansdale campus on Sunday with a team meeting scheduled for that night.

Practice gets underway on Tuesday, August 19, and two-a-day conditioning workouts in shorts will be held for three days. Two-a-day contact drills begin Friday, August 22, and continue daily except Sunday until classes betin on Wednesday. Augus't 27. Tire Automotive Savings Smith confidence in them and their ability. Our running backs are as good as any in the nation. The defense is going to surprise a lot of people, especially the defensive backs. We also have excellent receivers with a lot of talent. I'm the unproven link in the offense but the offense we use is geared to my style." WVU Grid Players Full of Optimism MORGANTOWN - With West Virginia football about to begin, a lot of speculating and predicting is circulating among Mountaineer fans. With the WVU footballers about to report to preseason camp on Aug. 17,11 of the top players had some thoughts on the upcoming season: RANDY SWINSON, 6-3, 210, tight end, Washington, B.C.: "I've got a lot of confidence in myself and the rest of the squad. If we all have the right attitude I can see no reason why we can't win." Arthur Owens, 5-11, 175, running back, Stroudsburg, Pa.: "I have a strong feeling we are going to be better than people think. The team has been working hard because they know the people are down on us. A lot of the guys are doing more because of the public's attitude! There is going to be a lot of competition among team members and it should prove to be quite interesting." Steve Barley, 6-3, 247, offensive tackle, Apollo, Pa.: "We have some question marks on our depth chart but we have the talent to fill them. I don't pay attention to the pre-season stuff, you can't if you're going to play good ball." Heywood Smith, 6-1, 230, fullback, Dunbar, W. Va.: "I'm looking forward to a dynamite season. We have a lot of good talent on our squad. Personally I would like to help the team as much as possible. I also want to show people that West Virginia can produce good athletes." Dan Kendra, 6-1, 200, quarterback, Al- lentwon, Pa.: "Our offensive line is great. I have full Hardwick, Anthony . Take Early Lead JACKSON, N.J. - Billy Hardwick and Earl Anthony, a pair of tour veterans who between them hold 33 championships, took the early lead Saturday as the first six games were rolled in the $50,000 Jackson Open Bowling Tournament. Hardwick, from Louisville, and the win-, ner of 16 Professional Bowlers Association crowns* averaged 248 en route to a 1,493 pinfall. At the end of the opening set he was 16 pins in front of Anthony, of Tacoma, Wash., whose most recent victory came two weeks ago in Davenport, Iowa. Van Halanger Hardwick shot games of 216,278,245 and 215 before closing out with a 290, while Anthony closed out his block with a perfect game, the event's first. Anthony, 37, shot 234, 208, 234, 220 and 279 before turning in his 300, his first of the year. The tour's top performer this season and last, the crew-cut southpaw shows four triumphs in 1975 and has won a leading $81,000, putting him about $10,000 ahead of his pace one year ago when he fell $400 short of becoming the game's first $100,000 winner. It was 103 pins back to Ed Bessler, Allentown, Pa., whose high game in a 1,372 round was 268. Ten pins behind Ressler, fourth on this year's money list with $40,000, was Vince Pantuso, a regional member from Troy Hills, N.J. Rounding put the top five wasj ther Jerseyan, Teata ·Semiz of River Edga? who spilled 1,351. Ray Marshall, 6-1, 205, linebacker, Clairton, Pa.: "All I'm thinking about is winning and hard work. I look for the defense to surprise people. We know the offense is good: The linebackers are strong and have good depth, possibly the strongest area on defense. Our attitudes are different this year. I know it's going to be a dynamite season." Andy Peters, 6-2,220, defensive end, Fox Chapel, Pa.: "I am really optimistic about this season. Our offense is great. I've never played against a team on Saturday that is any tougher than the team I practice against every week day (WVU offense). It's going to take eleven guys on defense. All the defensive-players are hustlers this year." Ken Culbertson, 6-2,220, linebacker, Lo. gan, Ohio: "I'm very optimistic about the coming season. The defense had a good spring and it was a learning process. The defensive line will be quick, strong, hard nosed and will utilize all those attributes. Our defensive backs have come a long way too. The defense will have to penetrate and attack to be successful." Paul Jordan, 5-11, 175, defensive back, Cincinnait, Ohio: "If everybody does what they are capable of, then I can see no reason why we can't go to a bowl. The defense is young but experienced and the offense is going to score a lot, but it will be a two-way effort." Al GlnchosH, 6-2, 235, center, Woodbridge, N.J.: "Based on spring practice, I would have to say we have more guys working on their own than at any other time since my arrival here. The guys are ready to work hard. We're tired of being pushed around-verbally. Personally I want to play good, clean football and help the team as much as possible.
