The 10-man group continued In session today, formulating a plan lo present to the NCAA National Convention at Washington Jan. 8-10 Asa Bushnoll, director of the 1D52 NCAA program, said, the group Is sludying' a long range policy to deal -with pressure problems when subscription (pay as you see) television comes inlo use. Bushnell said when this day comes—whclher it be two years or five years — nn institution could reap million dollar, rewards (or one appearance—If not restricted , One of Ihe suggestions bfflng mulled over at a mldtown hotel Is to assess the restricted games and distribute, money to other colleges In the aren on n prorated formula. "Something like the Pacific Coast-Big Ten arrangement on the Rose Bowl,". Bushnell added. Under Ihis'fB'frangement, Rose owl recelpts-' by con- erence ruling so no one school gets 11 the profits. The' Rose Bowl host earn'gets half of the PCC bowl tare -while the other Is "divided mong members of the conference. The Bis Ten carves up its bowl ecoipts in 11 chunks, giving the cam lhat plays In the bowl two hares while other conference icmbers get one each. If this policy were carried over nto television, then R game m- olving Georgia Tech and Southern California, say, might, net them inly n small percentage of the total ?V receipts. The rest of the money vould be scattered among other members In the area whose •ecelpts might have been harmed by the game. The mhtn Idea Is to see that the rich don't, get richer and Iho poor joorcr, creating a "football aristocracy." fls tho TV Committee contends possible, of 10 or 12 top- ranking teams. Under the present program limited football television to one major game a week and ons team season, the receipts, averaging around $100.000, are split between the competing schools, minus a 12 per cent assessment by the NCAA. Memphis will send Tech High and Catholic High to th« Haley Field I gymnasium.

Also,' It would guarantee the Oklahoma team the privilege of playing n the Cotton.Bowl if it won the I tie. The simple fact is that there Is no real Incentive nowadays to build great football dynasty unless .here Is a chance to play In one of th bowls. Probably it isn't even economically sound. That Is one of the nig talking Titles. points of the bo i vl K sou ever see onetof our Indoor track stars limping around the streets as though he had something stuck in the toe of his shoe, we are-In position to'tell you how he got-that -way. Our : authority Is Ray Welnberg, who. hurdled ..for Australia In the Olympic Games at Helsinki last summer and who says he tried to Induce several American stars to compete in his country this winter.', • , "They were Just not interested, 1 Weinberg told the, Melbourne Argus. "Some of them make up ro $650 for a single appearance at an Indoor meeting. One of them tolr me there is too much money in the boards .for him to visit Australia.' Apparently - under the impression that they were talking .with another member of • the guild, the Americans, according to Weinberg, wen to some pains to fill him in on the latest,.methods of paying :off In their country. This was our favorite, a.s divulged by the Argus: "Welnebrg said most of the star; had private dressing rooms when they appeared at the meetings. On returning to change after appear Ing on the' tack, they found $650 tucked in the toe of one of thei: shoes." What will: these slick promoter think- up next?

The Spartans finished the season's business as the only undefeated, united major team In the country. The Spartans now have won 24 straight while the Engineers, who wound up operations-with a 23-9 victory over Georgia Saturday, have'not tasted defeat In 25 games and own a 16-game winning streak. They'll meet a severe test Jan. 1 against Mississippi'In the Sugar Bowl. Ole Miss, tied twice, nlsp is undefeated, so this will be the only, bowl game involving teams that have not been whipped. Disappointments The biggest disappointments, perhaps,, were Illinois, California and Texas Christian. The Illini were .supposed to be the class of the Big ten,.but even at the start they showed the experts to be wrong and could do no belter than compile a 4-5 record. Wisconsin was rated second best, but emerged with the. Rose Bowl nomination on the basis of a 6-2-1 season. California was regarded as the likely heir to the Pacific Coast Conference crown, but Pappy Waldorf's Golden Bears did not reckon with Southern California, and to a lesser extent, UCLA. Both proved great defensive powers that also could score and the league race and bid to the Rose v Bowl was not-decided until they met and Southern Cat won two weeks ago It was risky business predicting that Texas Christian would win in the Southwest Conference,^ loop of 'upset Icing" of the year. Co*cK Frank Leahy predicted he'd.h«v« prohibiting postseason games. To Notre Dame went the.title of "upset king" of the year. Coach FranV. Leahy predicted b«'d hav* a weak team, but with each riTi Ing Saturday, the Irish looked better until they polished off Oklahoma 'and Southern.'California, either had tasted defeat belor* oing up against Notre Dame. Leahy and his "sucker ahlft" so have given the'rules commit:e something to think over this inter and it seems fairly certain at Ihe loopholes of Ihe rules that ermitted Notre Dame to work the ormation will be blocked. ' •' It I« Leral All officials queried on it say tt legal. The rule sfate» that any '' lift or movement not a basic part f a team's normal pattern Is de- gned to pull the opposition offside. ' each Jesse Hill, whose Southern California team dropped a 9-0 ver- ict to Notre Dame Saturday, said e agreed it was not a violation of he rule but that It was a violation f "the spirit of the game." In the shift, the backfleld moves r'om the split T to the box. As the sacks are shifting, the opposition isually jumps over the line of crimmage. There's no doubt that t's 'tricky.
