(Wide Vision Screen) Tonight Only "UNDER THE RED SEA" NCAA Ends Annual Session Today By FRITZ HOWELL CINCINNATI (AP) — After five days of not too thrilling skirmishing, the National Collegiate Athletic Assn. wraps up its 48th annual convention today by voting on sundry matters "ranging from ethics to football television. While the delegates are doing their only balloting of the weeklong conclave which has attracted 1,300 to the Queen City, athletic directors at seven or eight continued to loolc for coaches, coaches. One-A-Week There wasn't a chance the country would get anything except game-a-week television on a national scale. Practically all the arguments lor lifting some of the controls disappeared yesterday in round table discussions: The American Football Coaches Assn. launched a cooperative relationship with the NCAA yesterday designed to bring about stricter enforcement of NCAA rules and the coaches' own code of ethics, adopted last year. Program Weif hts Don Paurot of Missouri, retiring president of the coaches, said the association could bar from membership any mentor found guilty of anything violating the spirit of the rules. The resolution passed by the coaches did not define In any way what would constitute n violation, but Fnurot offered as his personal opinion: "This means that such things as recruiting, entertainment of prospective athletes, inaccurate .pro- jram weights for players, coaching from the sidelines, and possibly .he use of the sucker shift and the iaklng of injuries might be, In the future, construed as violating the spirit of the rules. "In the past I've been guilty of using inaccurate weights of players in programs. If I hadn't, I'd mve had the biggest team in our conference, and I know I didn't mve the biggest team. In the fu- Uire if you see the players weights n a program all ending in "five" "zero", you'll know damned well they're dishonest. Coaching From l.inci "I don't believe we'd consider a coach's occasional kicking mo tion, or passing motion, in the hea of a tight game, as sideline coach ing. But the use of the trainer or substitutes to give regular offens ive or defensive signals from the bench would certainly be a vio lation." The grid coaches last night hon orcd Tatum of Maryland. Tatum led his team through ah unbeaten- united regular season, and into tin pot spot in the Associated Press poll The coach of the year award was, presented by the Scripps-Howarc newspapers on the basis of votes by the nation's coaches.
