Phi Fires Up
On Standing Of
By John Bijur
. Last night the Phi Assembly de
bated a bill which would enable
athletes, to not only compete in
sports, but obtain an education as
The bill had four articles. The
first was that all athletes be al
lowed to receive monetary aid
from their college. Secondly, that
they be allowed to spend five years
in college. Thirdly, that they take
fewer courses during their active
seasons; and finally all such ath
letes be under the strict control of
a commission set up by the NCAA.
The proponents of - the bill as
serted the world is entering into
a new society in which specializa

ball players should be considered
as a law student a specialist in
his own field.
The opponents declared that the
university's first objective is the
improvement of the mind and then
that of the body. Athletics should
