BIRMINGHAM, Ala. —(U.R)— The athletic situation at the University of Kentucky, blasted by a New York judge as rife with "over- empasis," will be given e.

The university had .requested such an investigation, but Moore said that league heads would have taken_ the step uninvited •— "We waited until now until the court action in New York was over." The conference commissioner tp- fered to the proceedings in New York in which Judge Saul S. Streit, in giving suspended sentences to three' University of Kentucky players involved in the basketball firing scandal, described athletics at Kentucky as "the acme of commercialism and overemphasis." In a long statement issued April 30, Judge Streit attacked Kentucky basketball Coach Adolph Rupp on the grounds that he "aided'and abetted in the immoral subsidization 6! the players." The conference executive committee directed Moore to investigate the truth of the judge's charges. .
