May Join Sonify Code Fight Violators of Rule May be Barred from Olympic Competition SOUTH BEND, Ind., Dec. 13. (AP) —A combined NCAA-AAU knockoul punch for ".mnity code" violato-s— so complete us to bar them from U.S. Olympic competition—appeared to be brewing today. Dr. Karl Lclb of Iowa, NCAA president, declared nt Notre Dame's annual football banquet last night that offender.'; would receive sharp- ~r sanctions than expulsion and chedule boj tla. He warned that schools violating the code may also lose AAU sanction, making their athletes ineligible for the Olympics 115 well as lass of certification by scholastic nc- Tcditing agencies. Leib hinted al more stringent ncasures after Avery Brundage president of the U.S. Olympic Association, asserted at the nationnl AAU meeting in San Francisco that an athlete who accepts an athletic scholarship "professionalizes" himself and should be barred from membership on Olympic teams. "I would like lor Mr. Brundase to define lib meaning of athletic scholarship," Leib told reporters. "I wonder if he regards them a reward in payment of athletic ability. The sanity code outlaws this. It recognizes n 'grant for aid' on the basis of need and judges nn athlete the lame us any other student,." Leaves Little Doubt Lclb left little doubt but what the NCAA and. AAU view athletic scholarships In (he same light. Speaking personally, and not for :he NCAA, Lclb said he felt that a 'rather strong argument has been nadc in the effort of southern schools to have a three-meal trailing table within the season of the •sport involved." The NCAA code low permits but one meal a day within season. He said that the three-meal proposal by Bill Alexander, former Georgia Tech coach, would offset apparent discrimination against Roy and Joe Welch Win Tag Decision The wrestling Welchs owned another tag team wrestling victorv today following Roy and Joe Welch's decision In the main, event of the American Legion bouls at Mcniorin Auditorium last night.
