Recruiting, athletic scholarships, summer sports camps and even televised games are either reaJities or being planned. The first piyiblic word came Friday, when it was learned Penn Stale had approved as many as 50 athletic scholarships for women starling this fall. Not counting its 100 football grants, Penn State awards about 100 athletic scholarships to men. While Penn State was about d e c i d i n g scholarships to women, University of Pittsburgh recruiting. And Pitt has been so granting Ihe cessful, Sandra going lo says basketball coach Bullman, thai "we're national championship with these girls.' But from the defending national champions, Immaculata College of llalvern, Pa., comes a challenge. "Tell Pitt to add us to their schedule," said coach Cnlh Rush. Her teams have compiled 744 record the past four seasons. Her husband, Ed. an officia in the National Raskctbal Association for seven year until lie switched lo the 'riva American Baskelbal Asso ciation this past season, saic Immaculata's f o l l o w i n g i growing by leaps and bounds. Rush said next year's lean has been scheduled into Madi son Square Garden and wi lay twice in Phladclphia's asketball shrine, the Palestra. And there is more. "We'are very, very close tn igning a television contract," .ush said. "The interest efinitely there, and women's asketball will definitely be a ajor spectator sport in the fu- ure." The rush to financial aid for ·omen athletes and the ipgrading. of long-neglected !· o m e n ' s sports programs iround the nation has been rompted by a set of guidelines eing drafled by the federal Department of Health, Education and Welfare. 11 is believed they will call ·U least for equal opportunities or women athletes in colleges a n d universities receiving uderal funds. Ignoring the guidelines could mean loss of Ihe federal money. Penn Slate, with 10 years of ntercpllegiate women's athletics behind it, doesn't have as far to go as many schools. Its assistant athletic director, Delia Durant, is a woman. Its women have an entire mildipg for their program, and they receive an increasingly rge share of the athletic budget. The decision to start awarding scholarships. for example, probably adds 50 per cent to this year's estimated intercollegiate expenditures of ?40,000 for women. n contrast, the mens' teams, not counting football, spent about $280,000 this year. "But that's deceptive,' said r e t i r i n g basketball coach Maryann Domitrovilz. "We get all the support, in terms of money, equipment, advice and encouragemenl. that we need."
