(UP) —Southeastern Conference rules providing for a monthly $10 payment to athletes probably will be abolished during the 'conference's 10th annual meeting Friday and Saturday at Edgewaler Park, Miss.. Dean w. D. Finikhouscr ol the University ol Kentucky, conterence secretary, suld yesterday. He said the conference would amend Its bylaws to conform with policies adopted by the NCAA last winter, and also would select a new commissioner to replace Mike Connors, who resigned last Summer because of ill health. Funkhouser said cancelling payments to athletes would not discourage athletes from playing in Southern schools. -He explained thai "more valuable scholarships will ba given to compensate for the loss of $10 cash." "Tile idea is," the graduate school dean said, "not to pay any cash so as, to conform to rules for amateurs." He -said the action was necessary because the conference had .been criticized by -some "so-called pure schools of the North and East," for paying athletes in cash. He recalled that when the new NCAA code was adopted, SEC and. oilier conferences protested, but the SEC agreed to go along with the national organization. Bowl team* in the SEC made football profitable several years ago and the conference voted for open subsidization, feeling Dial this was the best policy, Funkhouser said.
