J ( 07 pint SWCAIumniGroups Target of Appeals Recruiting Is Getting Out Of Hand, Committee Says DALLAS (AP) — Copies of a 400-word statement that th« Southwest Conference's very existence is endangered by a wave of illegal recruiting went out today to alumni groups of the seven member schools. It was the alumni that the fault committee, governing body of ,hc conference, hit at mostly in a report on athletic subsidization at ts winter meeting over the weekend. And, it was pointed out, this is the hardest group to control, that while "evidence of such wrongdoing has occurred is too strong to be doubted" the kind of evidence jhat will stand up in court could not be obtained. Threaten Good Name The committee found that valuable gifts to prospective athletes, payment of money and promise of employment to parents in an effort to influence athletic recruiting and efforts to evade the rule in the proper signing of athletes were threatening "the good name" of the Small College Leaders Listed NEW YORK Wl—Unbeaten College of Emporia Kan. took small- college offense honors while Tennessee State and Geneva College Pa. shared the more important defense titles during, the 1954 football season, final N.C.A.A. service bureau statistics showed today. Emporia, going through its second straight undefeated campaign piled up 489.7 yards a game, 404,7 of them on the ground, and averaged 43.2 points a game. In all three respects, it led the nation, bettering the marks compiled by the major-college champions, too. Emporia also posted the highest rushing yardage figure ever recorded, in major or minor competition. Coach Wayne McConnell's team ran 86 per cent of the time 450 out of 523 plays and got 1 per cent of its yardage on the ground. Its average gain was 8.08 yards a play. conference. The committee exacted a pledge Irom each member of the league that it would tighten rules to better control ite alumni and other supporters of its athletic teams. Distributing Statement The member schools — Texas, Texas, A&M, Rice, Arkansas, Baylor, Texas Christian and Southern Methodist _ are distributing the statement to the alumni organizations. It was the first time in history for the Southwest Conference to openly acknowledge that recruiting had gotten out of hand and to make in appeal to the public to discourage undue interference by the alumni.
