J. J. Dostar, University of Alabama;
and A. W. Hobbs, University of
North Carolina, were elected mem'
bers of the executive committee.
According to Dean Funkhouser
many proposals were introduced but
rew were thought worthv or Dasslnsr,
Washington and Lee's proposal to
abolish spring football practice was
voted down by conference heads. The
University of Tennessee's apology for
conducting early practice for her
freshman team was accepted as
sufficient by the representatives.
Tennessee told the council that the
practice was held without her official sanction and that such an occurrence would not take place
One of the most important acts
of the council gives the University
of Alabama permission to "lick the
stuffings out of Washington State"
at the New Year's Day Tournament
of Roses game. Washington State
invited Alabama, as one of the best
teams in the east to be its opponent in the Pasadena classic. As
the Southern Conference prohibits
post season games, the conference's
permission was secured before the
acceptance was made by the Crimson Tide from Alabama.
Next year's council meeting will
be held, December 10 and 11, at
Tulane University, New Orleans.
