TUESDAY, MARCH 4, 1S52 FIFTEEN Jowl Battles Seen Getting Green Light' LOS ANGELES—(/P)—The presi- •nt of the National Collegiate ;hletic Association says he be- ;ves the NCAA special committee rveying post-season bowl games 11 give them a clean bill of health. Prof. Hugh C. Willett of the liversity of Southern California, .10 heads the NCAA, told the mthern California Football V/rit- s Association yesterday: "If our survey shows; as I think -will, that such games are bene- Jial, I think the NCAA will vote continue them—with controls." The American Council on Educa- >n Executive Committee has stated ; opposition to post-season foot- 11 and spring practice, and has ked the six accrediting agencies r colleges in America to enforce eir code. So far, three of these .encies have indicated they will it do so. Prof. Willett said the ACE code is >t one the colleges must accept, .t that many will accept it. "I am .quite confident that the nferences will feel they have just good regulations as the ACE, or tter," he said. "I don't look for vast amount of changes in the nferences. So far as the NCAA concerned, if the majority feels wl games hurt, bowl games will out. My personal opinion is that is will not be the case, though." Dr v Fred Fagg, president of the liversity of Southern California, id he hopes the NCAA will con- lue to be looked to "to handle tercollegiate athletic problems." Dr. Fagg pointed out that the ACE is no enforcement arm and that •o' regional accrediting agencies, e New England and Middle ates, have indicated informally ey could not act as enforcement dies to regulate athletic programs.
