The presidents, members of A spccinl committee set up by the American study what's wrong with college sports, recommended these strong measures: 1. Abolition of all boul games. I- • 2. Barring of freshmen 1 from varsity sports, * 3. Refining alumn! and other booster proups permission to give scholarships directly to athletes. Three hours after the president's program was announced yesterday, Southeastern Conference athletic director. 1 !, In session at New Orleans, voted "almor.1 unanimously" to tell thc college presidents to keep their hands off the bowl policies of that conference- Representatives of the Rose, Cotton and Orange Bowls questioned. In varying degrees, the wlc-dom or necessity for. the presidents' anti- bowl proposal. A Shrine Bowl representative said he was sure they weren't after this charity game, No one commented for the Sugar Bowl. Professor H. P. Everett of the University of Washington, acting as official spokesman for the. Pa cific Coast Conference, said hi: group "!s way ahead'; of the college presidents who spoke up in Washington. Perhaps the most Interesting feature of their recommendation was the method suggested (or enforcing their proposals, which were sei forth by Dr. John Hrmnah of Michigan State. In the past a school which violated ntliletic restrictions usually has had to answer to some conference or the National Collegiate Alhletic Association. Under the presidents', Dr; Hannah snirl, "reasonable athletic behavior" would be considered a part of the school's academic .setup.
