TU 1-0014 Troubled PCC Opens Important SAN FRANCISCO (ft - The Pa cific Coast Conference confronted with imminent breakup started grappling again Friday with the problem of how and how much to help football players and other athletes maintain themselves in college. A special conference meeting of faculty representatives and ath letic directors will hear a -report from a committee instructed Dec. 5 to draft a new liberalized aid-to-athletes code. Eight days after the committee study was ordered, California, UCLA and Southern California announced on Dec. 13 that they were quitting the 42-year-old athletic league. One of their key disagreements with other members was over financial aid to athletes. The conference has been torn by argument over the issue since 19a6 when probation penalties were imposed on Washington, UCLA and Southern California for unauthorized payments to football players. California drew a lesser penalty for a recruiting violation by its then coach, Pappy Waldorf. By a 6-3 vote, the December conference meeting instructed the committee to pin down in specifics this general proposal: Spencer Addi Batting Punch To Glove Play PHOENIX, Ariz. (UP) Daryl Spencer, one of the game's great glove men, came trotting off the field grinning from ear to ear. He had just completed his greatest day in history at bat two home runs and two singles in five times at the plate against an assortment of Chicago. Cub pitchers. Spencer is facing some stiff competition at shortstop with the San Francisco Giants this year from young Andre Rodgers and the pressure is on. "But I took a batting lesson from Lefty O Doul the other day," smiled Daryl. "I had been stand Ing with my . feet too close to gether. "Lefty was of the belief that If I opened my stance and stood with my left foot back about six Inches that it would improve my hatting average. I tried It out for the first time today. "What a day. My gosh, I'm going to give this new stance the full test. As of now I'm batting .800 with it. And you can't beat that." At 28, Spencer has been the reg ular Giant shortstop for three years. But his batting average al- ways has been on the - anemic side. In 1953 it was .208. After two years in the service, he came back to hit .221 In 1956 and tipped that to .249 in 148 games last year. His top output of runs-batted-in for a single year in the majors was 56. But in this game he knocked in three tallies with his four blows as his team scored a 13-2 triumph. "With this new stance I seem to set a better look at the ball." he reasoned.- It t funny I never tried this before. Had to have O Doul show me. "I'm batting .M0-but I'll teU you right now that I hope my regular season hitting improves to the point where I'm batting .289 and I'll' be happy. If this new stance will put 40 or 50 points on my average 1 11 nave no worries. New Pine Creek Holds PAL Cord NEW PINE CREEK The PAL Club, headed by Elder Jeff Swin- ney,. held a smoker Friday night at the grange hall to raise mon ey for the expense involved in send ing a seven man boxing team to Medford on March 15, to participate in the big Heart Fund bene' fit.

The PCC code now allows schools to give athletes their tui tion and opportunity to earn J100 month on campus Jobs. The regular wage rate is $2 an hour but athletes can be paid $4 an hour in their sport season. The athletic ' aid committee, headed by Donald Wollett of Wash ington, is reported to have failed to agree on an aid plan draft in a two day session at Seattle last weekend. Instead the committee is ex pected to present three alternative proposals for conference discussion and action. One Is understood to suggest that each member school decide. a . basis of need, whether to give a full free ride tuition, fees, room, board, and laundry Without requiring any work. The two alternatives would require campus Job work. These five possibly would car ry on with a free ride system if it proves impossible to make a compromise which would induce California. UCLA, .Southern Cali fornia and Stanford to remain in the league. Southern California, ucla and California have declared they will leave the PCC July 1. 1959. Both California and Stanford have declared against any finan cial aid favoring athletes over other students. Stanford declares it does not pay the $4 an hour double wage during an athlete's sports season now allowed.
