A. i ^Discussion of the coacbes ic- -, sealed several plans for the conference. It MBS suggested that each member of the group be forced to play nt least sis games - v with other conference teams dining the season in order to be eligible for the conference crown. Eligibility rules would be made for the entire group and all other state teams playing confeicncc elevens would be forced to abide by the rules of the conference, it nas' said.
