Tlien came the principle of re- j ci'uiting, limiting: a coach or any athletic, department official to the boundaries of iiis own campus in which to solocit attendance of any prospective students, and a cleat- split developed with the south and southwest, opposing all others. Oayle Scott of Texas Christian and Bill Alexander of GeorgiaTech led the objecting .Southern group but on the roll call the motion carried. 70 to 33. With the recruitin!! principle already on the record, the payoff punch, calling for a schedule boycott against schools that fail to live up to tlie five principles, passed unanimously.
