Dec. 17. i UP)— The All-America football Conference today adopted a share-the-weallh pln;i In make sure that the Cleveland Browns and the New York Yankees don't convert the league Inlo a yearly runaway. Break up the Brown* or ihe Yankees? No. not exactly that. But Ihe AAC has »pjx>lnted a commtt- teo to look over the top available lalent and spread It around the circuit more evenly so that Ihe New York nnd Cleveland teams won't wind up In the title playoff every year, Just as Ihey have In the past two. Just how the AAO can (to about this difficult and delicate operation remains for the committee to devise, but the baby league Is determined to profit from the experience of its old nnri established rival, the National Football League Year after year the NFL was, until the current campaign, a four team circuit—the New York Giants nnd the Washington Redskins in the East and the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers in the West. Thus, no one else made money. The first big step In Ihe AAC's antidote -came at yesterday's annual draft of collegiate talent. All drafts favor the cellar teams lo some extent, but the AAC went whole IIOR: the Browns and the Yanks, as champions of their respective divisions, passed up the first six rounds of the first 10. Second-place San Francisco and B'jf- i falo mtssed four of the first 10, and eight of the first 25 rounds. And so It went down the line, with the bottom-ranking teams getting every possible break. Hut the AAC won't stop there in Its determination to bolster its | weaker clubs. A<lm. Jonas Ingram, | tiic league commissioner, is n bear on the subject ant! his share- the-tvealtli may even reach the point of having winning teams selling top-flight players at sacrifice prices on occasion to aid the less fortunate. to Buy Interest j/n Los Angeles Rams I WASHINGTON, Dec. 17.
