The proposal is one of 24 on he agenda of the organization. AAA members will vote on the proposals by mail with the vote to be tabulated by mid-August. The proposal would allow spring football practice to begin on the Monday following the state track meet "with pads and for a m a x i m u m of 10 practices (one per day) except on Sunday as long as school is in session." David and heat! football coach at Mai give ble," the athlete.. .to advantage possible," bers. Alpe said are opposed Alpe, athletic director vern High School, is one of the supporters of the proposal. He said AAA rules on that subject are 30 years old. "My main point is in trying to help him every , Alpe said. "In a math class, if we could add a course to help a kid improve, we'd do it." Ho said he believed the proposal had a 50-50 chance of approval by the 500 AAA mem- the coaches that to the regulation 'either too danged lazy or they're already doing it." He said football practice August is limited. "This would give some kids a belter chance to play," he said "In the fall, the kids that haven't come two days of to the top pads, you aflei can't count on them playing in the first game. We've got to peak quick. We have to push a kic too quick. This would help vhere a kid's coming along a ittle late." He sold spring practice would allow a coach to "work on bas- c things." "There are some things in :hc spring that you've got to lave pads to teach them," he said. "It would be nice to work 10 days knowing you didn't have to get ready for a game. You can't take a fullback and experiment at guard or lake a guard and experiment at fullback in August." He said the lack of spring practice discriminates againsl football in a fashion. There are no restrictions on practices for track and basketball during the school year. Alpe confirmed that slates surrounding Arkansas permil spring football practice anc that Arkansas schools playing schools from' neighboring states ro t a disadvantage, par lieu- arly early in Hie season. He said the additional cost of nsuring players during the pring would be minimal and iiat the expense could be de- rayed by staging a spring game.

Marshall, 42, Cub third base coach, Wednesday was named to replace Whitey Lockman, who kicked himself upstairs for full-time duty as vice president In charge of player development. The somewhat surprising move was strictly the idea of Lockman, apparently unhappy in the role of field boss since he was tapped as successor to dismissed Leo Durocher on July 24, 1972. Marshall, Ihe American Association's manager of the year with the Cubs' Wichita farm club in 1972, thus steps in as boss in the midst of a Cub rebuilding year. After the Cubs' fifth place 1973 finish in the National League East race, angered owner Phil Wrigley ordered a house cleaning that sent packing such old 'guard retainers as pitcher Fergy Jenkins, third baseman Bon Santo, second baseman Glenn Beckert and Wednesday morning when I told Mr. Wrigley and (Executive Vice President) John Holland," said Lockman. "They ' concurred with my recommendation of Marshall, who now has had a halt season to get acquainted with the personnel and can do a fine job of managing. He will be his own man as manager." The name of Ernie Banks, Cub playing hero for 19 seasons a roving instructor and now not considered by Cul brass lo become Ihe first black major league manager. Vice President Holland .said "As far as I know, F,rnii doesn't care about beirrg a manager. He's doing right no« exactly what he wants in work ing with young players in ou: entire system." He said the wear and tear on equipment would be no more han that of schools in the play- iffs. He also said individual coaches could work around final tests an dthe closing of school and pointed out that final se- nester tesls fall during basketball season. The proposal is Ihe only one of Ihe 24 that did not receive a recommendation of some kind rom Ihe AAA's Executive Committee. Alpe was unsure whether that would be a plus or linus. , The Executive Committee gave favorable rccommcnda- .ions to proposals to expand the lumber of teams in the Class B ootball playoffs and to allow any ninth grade student to par- icipate in senior 'high school ilhlelics. The committee suggested rejection of proposals that would jermil reinstatement of stale junior high basketball tournaments and track meets: place first-round games of the various stale basketball tournaments out in the stale which', in turn, would reduce the numbei of teams coming to a centra point, and reclassify the slate's high schopls., . The proposal'dealing with the Class B football playoffs would allow the addition of two "wild card" teams to the six teams that earn playoff spots by winning their respective confer- nces. . · | Under current regulations, a lintli grader may participate jn a senior high school team if he senior high system is composed of grades 9-12. However, ninth grader cannot compete f the system is made' up of jades 10:12. Under the new roposal, the participation of any ninth grader would be allowed if approved by the administrators of both schools involved. Stale junior high baskelball ournanrienls, track meets and swimming and diving com. iclilion were eliminated last rear. The proposal to be con sidcred would allow reinstatement of all junior high aclivi- ies on a state level that the AAA formerly sponsored. Under the current provisions .3 teams qualify for the state mskelball lournament in AAA, AA and A and 32 teams qualify. Class B. The number of cams would be cut in half under a proposal calling for an elimination round at the area ir district level.
