'ThcVe Is every indication it will be- passed," Wilson said. "We ex- pod a few will object to Certain pails of it but al! we need 1.5 « sim;:le majority of the 252 N.C.A.A. Thc • standard eligibility plan i tomaining a .schedule boycott pro-' vlso against schools that fail to' conform, was far and away the hottest legislation up for approval' although some action may be taken on a surprise proposal to create a "clean s|X>rts foundation" to curb- gambling both in amateur antl pro- fi's.sional athletics.

"There is a moral breakdown alter every ivnr and gambling increases." Pcomans said. "It's worse riKht now than at any time in history." The President of the United 1 States or J.
