The NCAA plans to attack the* -- — _ _ _ * evils In its sports setup In a calculated. unhyslerical manner, Ignoring the prod of a special presidents committee to go in and chop away. A year's study was prescribed for such Issues as bowl games and subsidization practices. 2.

The South and Southwest backed the NCAA solidly In Its refusal to be spurred into drastic action ' by the president's committee. 4. The strong move of the president's body to erase abuses through sweeping elimination of bowl games, out-of-season practices and athletic scholarships scared the various athletic bodies out of their complacency. The annual convention, which clo«d Saturday, followed the script all the way. There was no drastic action, little fireworks and a general attitude of, "Well, let's study this thing out first." Tile president.'; were rebuffed on two main issues In the 10-polnt deemphasis program they have recommended to the American Council on Education. They were bowl games and spring practice. The convention voted to make an exhaustive study of bowls and other post-season tournaments and determine just how much they might undermine athletics.

In the NCAA resolution which was adopted, colleges were told they should not make bowl commitments after Jan. 2, 1953. That leaves Jan. 1 open. On out-of-season practice, the delegates beat down a proposal to ban It and instead adopted an amendment limiting spring football drills to 20 sessions over's 30-day period and basketball to M sessions in 24 days.
