Jonesboro's victory didn't come easily. The game ste-sawed backward - and forward from the very start with the lead changing hands several times. The Lions' poor second quarter, In which they scored only six points turned the trlok for Coach Hot Osment's crew.

Haymaker, n member if the Kansas State Athletic Counell and the school's representative on the Big Seven Conference's rules- making faculty committee, said the two boys were ruled Ineligible last Monday and would remain that way until the faculty group meets In Kansas city Feb. 29. "Not In Violation" Gardner, who has tui-ned out winning teams at Kansas State since 1948, said In his opinion the college was-riot In violation •'of-.the recruiting rule, "but ah Investigation is being made and It is ui> to the conference la decide." Larry (Moon) .Mullins, athletic director at Kansas State, said the reports of the council action were 'a correct appraisal of the situation." The sjjcclflc charge was that Kansas; State violated n new Big Seven rule which prohibits "personal solicitation of athletes off the campus by members of the athletic staff or representatives of tile atn- letlc staff." Another of the Big Seven rules, adopted Inst Decernlur. prohibits a member from holding any practice or test at which a prospective student displays his athletic ability. The Oinnlia World-Herald Quoted Carl Schaetzle, father of Stanley as saying he thought Nebraska was as guilty as Kansas State In recruiting the athletes. "Coach Harry Good (Nebraska) had been in contact with Btnn'far many months," Schaetzle said "He called nn the boy in Omaha and entertained him in Lincoln. He tried to arrange another talk with Stan last week, just a few days before *h e went to Kansas State." Schaetzle was graduated from Omaha South High last week. Mutlins blamed confusion over new recruiting rules of the Big Seven for all the controversy. He said his school and others were in doubt as to when the rule prohibiting contacts with prospective athletes went into effect. —Courier N'ewi Photo 1352 I'Al'S—Shown above is the 1952 edition of the Blytheville Papooses which Is representing Bly- thevillc Junior High School In the baskeball wars this winter.
