(AP)After 37 years, St. Louis University is out of the Missouri Valley Conference. me sudden withdrawal Wednesday didn't seem to register shock and surprise among conference officials here for their annual spring meeting, "It doesn't besmirch the conference that much," said Gene Mayfield of West Texas State University, chairman of the conference athletic directors. "Representatives of this conference understand fully the position of St. Louis University and have sympathy for the circumstances which have led to the decision of the institution," said a statement read newsmen Wednesday evening by commissioner Mickey Holmes. SLU had competed only in basketball and baseball in the league. Other conference schools had more rounded athletic programs, including major football status. A SLU spokesman said in St. Louis the school was ending its membership to permit more flexibility in scheduling teams familiar to St. Louis area fans. "If you consider .the reasons for St. Louis University dropping out—an accelerating program in soccer and ice hockey." Mayfield said, the withdrawal might be better understood. Meanwhile, Jack Edmondson, conference president and faculty representative from WTSU, said, "I haven't been officially notified." He said until a registered letter is received from St. Louis University advising of its action he would declint comment and treat the matter as a rumor. There were no SLU representatives at the conference meeting, which continues through Saturday morning. Holmes told newsmen he thought most of the Valley schools would play SLU since they had been included in a double round-robin master schedule for next season. He said if league schools do play the Billikens. the games will be non-conference. The severing of relations was effective immediately. Holmes said. He said only Drake University remains from the charter members when the conference was formed in 1907. Little League Standings Senior W.
