McAlister the question of whether the «-4 vote by which the conference okayed the ban was sufficient. Thompson said the AIC constitution requires a three-fourth's majority for adoption of nn amendment. There are-II member schools The A. & M. head also asserted that, the conference does not have facilities to police the ban, adding that there should be no effort to enact a prohibition which might encourage schools to resort to «ub- terfuge. McAlister announced following (he AIC's meeting in Little Rock last Saturday that a prohibition of spring practice and of starting fall practice before sept, 7 had been approved. Several school heads said they left the meeting under the impression the proposal had been defeated. It is possible, even If Thompson's challenge is overruled, that the amendment will be repealed before ever being enforced. There has been talk of calling another conference meeting for a new vote on the matter. Puxico POS. 0. Smith (13). F. Wiltong (341 .. F Arnold (26) ,. C W. smith (13) G Cookeson (8) .
