NCAA Head Says Committee
To Study Athletics Program
As Result Of Streits Blasts
6.

Rill Spivey Indicted

For Perjury; Line,
By Earl Cox
BULLETIN

Hugh C. Willctt, president of the
National Collegiate Athletic Association, said Wednesday that
the membership committee of the
NCAA would make an investigation of the athletic policy and
practices at the University.
The membership committee governs membership, and is the enforcement arm of the association.
Willett said that Judge Streit s
criticism prompted his decision.
The basketball fix scandal involving former University basketball
players reached a crux this week
when :
1. The University, Coach Adolph
Rupp and the University's athletic
set-u- p
were blasted by New York
Judge Saul S. Streit who dealt
suspended sentences to
Alex Groza and Ralph
Beard and Dale Barnstable.
2. Former Wildcat
Center Bill Spivey was charged with
first degree perjury by a New York
grand jury which indicted him on
that charge. A fugitive warrant was
wvfc'aed f ir Spivey's arrest.
Judge Streit lashed out at University officials for making basketball a tlOO.OOO-a-yebusiness and
even encouraging players to crib in
their examinations.
University officials were silent following
Judge Streit's criticism.
President Herman L. Donovan and
Coach Rupp both were reported out
of town when news of the blast
reached Lexington. None of the UK
officials reached by newsmen would
comment.
(In a statement released later. Dr.
Leo M. Chamberlain, vice president,
said, "In view of the serious character of the charges made by Judge
Streit against the University of
Kentucky and University officials
it is my opinion that these charges
should be considered and answered
only after study by the highest
authorities of the University, and
after President Donovan's return
to the campus.'

of service for football or basketball.
Blasting Rupp, Judge Streit said
the coach discussed the point
spreads on games with the boys,
that he passed out $50 bills when
they played good games, and that
on at least one occasion he bawled
them out for losing a game and
costing Rupp's friend $500.
The Judge said that Rupp admits
the bawling out incident but denies
that he showed players betting slips
so they'd know by how much they
were favored. Groza testified that
he saw such slips.
"Coach Adolph Rupp failed in his
duty to observe the amateur rules to
build character and protect the
morals and health of his charges."
Judge Streit charged.
Specifically, Rupp was accused of:
sacrificing the
1. "Deliberately
physical welfare of star athletes."
2. "He openly
subsidized the
players."
3. "He referred to gambling on
the games and the point spread."
Thus, Judge Streit said, the University and coach must share the
responsibility with the fixers for
corrupting and demoralizing Groza,
Beard and Barnstable.
Judge Streit said that the National Collegiate Athletic Association was unable to enforce its rules
on amateurism and he urged colleges
to adopt the strict program suggested by the American Council on
Education.
Judge Streit praised Gov. Lawrence Wetherby, President Donovan
and Dean A. D. Kirwan for "their

the investigations.
For Groza, Beard and Barnstable
it was as happy an ending as they
could have expected. The men
actually were placed on probation.

COACH ADOLPH RUPP
Target Of Judge's Attack

Dr. Leo Chamberlain, vice president, said that Judge Streit had four
months in which to prepare a statement and that he thought the University should have at least a few
days before making any comment.
Specifically, Judge Streit, in a
prepared statement that took over
an hour to deliver, charged:
1. That Kentucky spent $107,000
on il basketball team in 1951. A
professional team spends only $25,-0more, he said.
2. That cribbing by Groza, Beard
and Barnstable was "encouraged and
tolerated by University officials."
3. That UK subsidized athletes in
violation of amateur rules.
4. That unqualified students got
into the University through athletic
scholarships. Judge Streit charged
the extensive use of athletic scholarships in certain colleges is "the
darkest blot on American college
athletics."
5. That Coach Rupp, alumni and
townspeople of Lexington all shared
in "demoralizing" the athletes.
Judge Streit went further with
this charge when he said:
"The present athletic scandal at
Kentucky can be traced directly to
the inordinated desire by the trustees and alumni of Kentucky University for prestige and profit from
sports."

New Budget Smaller

Than Present Costs

UK budget calling for the
penditure of $7,676,157 in 1952-5about $5000 less than is being spent
during the present fiscal year, was
approved, by the Board of Trustees
last Friday.
The expenditure for next year.
President H. L. Donovan said, will
be approximately the same as is
now being spent. This will be made
possible because of a $646,738 increase in funds from the General
Assembly, a $5 hike in student fees,
and a balance of $466331 from this
year's income.
The total of these sums will offset the million dollars the University had anticipated losing as a result of the decline in the enrollment
of veterans at UK, Dr. Donovan said.
"In the preparation of this budget." he added, "I instructed the
deans and the heads of departments
to reduce as far as it was possible
the number of employees in their
colleges and departments.
Staff Reduced By 99
"I am aware that they made a
conscientious effort to do this. When
a vacancy occurred, wherever it was
possible we closed ranks and did not
employ a new staff member. By tak

Dr. Martin E. Weeks, head of
the Agronomy Department who was

of Trustees, said this week that he
will not accept a change of status.
"They can fire me or leave me

the circumstances, I can't accept a

The University Board of Trustees
last Friday appointed Dr. Gilbert
H. Ahlgreen, chairman of the Department of Farm Crops at Rutgers University, as head of the
Agronomy Department to be effective July 1. The Board said Dr.
Weeks would continue as professor
of agronomy, at no reduction in
salary.
Dr. Weeks said he was being relieved of his position by the school

President Donovan said this week
he had never recommended that
Kenney be fired.

Dean Welch sair he had never

department head's demotion grew
out of the fact there was dissen- sion in the department.
The dean said any statement to

Dr. Welch said the Agriculture

Kentucky agriculture.

IFC Announces Plans
For Fall Rush Program

The Interfraternity Council announced completed plans for a formal rush program, to start in the
fall, at their meeting last night. The
new IFC program is similar to the
one which the sororities employ.
Along with the schedule, the IFC
set of rules
approved an
governing both fraternity and rushee
behavior during the rush period.
The rush program next fall will
start with a convocation of all men
students interested in joining a fraternity at 5 p.m.. Wednesday. Sept.
17, in the SUB. Prospective rushees
will be required to pay a $2 fee.
On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights the fraternities will hold
open smokers.
Parties To Start On Wednesday
The first round of invitational
parties will start Sunday, Sept. 21.
On Wednesday, the fraternities must
turn in their invitations for the second round of invitational parties,
and on Saturday, Sept. 27. the fraternities will turn in their invitational lists for preference night
parties.
Rushees will accept preference
bids from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. All houses will be open for
preference parties Saturday night
from 7 p.m. until 11 p.m. Each
house will have four parties, lasting
50 minutes.
Fraternities will turn in their final
preference lists early Sunday morning. Rushees will fill out their preference cards later in the morning,
and those who do not receive bids
will be notified Sunday afternoon.

The accepted rushees will meet in
the SUB Ballroom at 5 p.m. Sunday
to meet representatives of their fraternity.
All fraternities on campus received mimeographed copies of the
set of rules at the Thursday
meeting.
Dick Cherry, editor of the
an informational booklet for freshmen, said the rules would be printed
in the book for the benefit of incoming students.

Platforms of the United Students
and Constitutionalist parties were
announced this week, and the
United Students president challenged a statement by the Constitutionalist publicity manager.
These actions were taken in
preparation for Wednesday's Student Government Association election.
Henry Neel, United Students
president and the party candidate
for vice president of SGA, took Issue
with a statement made last week
by Tom Wilborn, Constitutionalist
publicity manager, in which Wilborn said the Constitutionalists have
been unable to enact some of the
planks on previous platforms.
"To my knowledge, the Constitutionalist have never raised a motion of any sort at any meeting of
SGA to help work on a book exchange," Neel stated.
Neel Challenges Statement
"Concerning their last last year's
platform, they have made no motion
or brought up any plank of their
platform at any SGA meeting," he
charged.
Wilborn replied, "I did not mean
to misrepresent the Constitutionalist
Party. I merely meant to say that
there were some planks on the platform which had been on previous
platforms that had not been enacted.
"Henry's statement leaves the impression that the Constitutionalists
were entirely inactive during the
past year. This is erroneous.

"We considered several other pointo.
such as a student bank, attempts to
have the Botanical Garden sidewalks improved, and attempts to
have a campus parking lot for students," Carter stated. "We did not
adopt them becau.se we do not feel
them within the scope of SGA

not likely be approved. We have
tried to adopt planks which we wiU

On the other side of the ledger, it is heartening
to see University officials commended by Judge
Streit for their cooperation with the New York
Crand Jury in its investigation. This indicates a
willingness on the part of the University to clear
up the situation which we hope to see followed-uwith concrete action on such matters as increased
emphasis on intramural sports and tha adoption of
stricter rules regarding athletic scholarships.
It is impossible at this time to make any judgment on the remarks made by Judge Streit concerning Coach Adolph Rupp. Coach Rupp lias not
yet presented his side of the case to the public and
