Probation, in NCAA Action By JOE MOOSHIL CHICAGO (AP) — The NCAA cracked down on the Universities of Oklahoma and Cincinnati yesterday with a warning that the two clean up their athletic policies or face possible expulsion. Oklahoma was placed on two years probation by the policy-mak- ng council of the National Collegiate Athletic Assn. Cincinnati was given one year probation and was ruled ineligible to participate n NCAA champonship events. No such clause was attached to Oklahoma's penalty, which means Oklahoma, perennial Big Seven football champion and a major grid power nationally, can participate in the Oragne Bowl next New Year's Day if the Sooners win the conference title. The council reprimanded three other schools and terminated the probation periods of two others. Two College's Sentences Ended One-year probationary sentences for Kansas State and North Carolina State for "athletic malprac- tices" were termlnted effective My 7. The University of Dayton (Ohio). Bethune-Cookman College of Daytona Beach, Pla., and Virginia Union University were rep- imanded. Dayton was reprimanded • for holding a basketball tryout and the other two for engaging in the Tropical Bowl football game at Jacksonville. Fla., Dec. 12, 1953. The grvme was not certified by the NCAA. The council reported it was found that Oklahoma staff members offered prospective student- athletes cost-free education beyond the athletes' normal period of eligibility. raying Medical Bills The school also was accused of paying medical expenses for immediate families of student atb- letes, secifically the wives and children of such athletes. The council said university patrons provided student - athletes "fringe benefits" in the form of clothes, miscellaneous gifts of cash and other gifts of relative nominal value. Some members of the Cincinnati football coaching staff were found to have offered athletes aid in excess of that permitted by the university and'the NCAA and to have provided transportation for prospective football players to visit the campus during the years 1951 through 1953. Gillman Blamed Cincinnati President Raymond Walters blamed former Coach Sid Gillman, now of the Los Angeles Rams, for the practices which brought NCAA censure. He said the practices no longer exist. Oklahoma President George L. Cross and Football Coach Bud Wilkinson said the NCAA's investigation fulled to show "a single case of fraud or dishonesty" and described the probationary action as vindication for the Sooner athletic program.

Even fitter "cooling om" for a number of days , veteran track writers who watt-lied spellbound during Saturday's race still are calling it the greatest they ever saw and predicting it will be remembered as long as the s\uiri endures. They are pretty well split up too on what will happen the next time around, despite Nashua's present 4-1 lead in the series. Nothing Settled When Nashua let Summer Ian set the pace all the way in the Wood and then came limuin.u up to nail him in his lost long jump at the wire, some were satisfied that the Eclair beauty finally had asserted his mastery lor good and all.
