The Complete Novel for Television.
By JIMMY WILKES
The Corleone saga began on NBC this
past Saturday night, and although the
other networks used effective counter
programming, the Godfather ratings
should be outstanding. For one thing no
other mini-series has come close to
sustaining the intense level of
excitement and suspense that was
inherent in The Godfather. Coppola
and his editor Barry Malkin are to be
praised for their successful job of editing
The Godfather, The Godfather, Part II,
and original footage not shown in the
two movies, into a coherent package
that kept one constantly on the edge of
And although I don't feel that the
violence depicted was unnecessary,
there is no doubt that some found
themselves viewing just to guess who
would be next. Not many films can

financially, according to Cobey. "Smaller schools can't
afford to live large scholarships, and they'd like to stay
competitive with larger schools"
The small colleges outnumber the larger ones in Al A W
and easily could amass enough votes to pass a motion in
their favor. Cobey says.
The scholarship cutback is not necessarily designed to
limit the larger universities, says Joan S. Hull,
chairperson of the Ethics and Eligibility Committee at
AlAW's national headquarters in Washington. D C.
"We make our decisions in light of AlAW's basic
philosophical position that athletics must be in the same
vein as the entire educational institution." Hull says.
"In that institution, the student athlete should not be
treated any differently than anyone else.

explains AlAW's basic philosophical position as a belief
in strictly limited competition and scholarships for

AIAW allowed no athletic scholarships for women

to women varsity-sport participant!, according to Moytr

Scholarships for men athletes total about $500,000.
The men's counterpart to AIAW, the National
Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA), did not reduce
a full scholarship to include just tuition and few m rls
most recent legislation, even though AIAW encouraged
NCAA to do so.
"I admire AIAW for trying to take the leadership role,
yet in the process they may deny equal opportunity for
women athletes," Cobey tayi.
"I can't imagine why AIAW would get itself so out of

Title IX of the 1972 Omnibus Education Act prohibits
discrimination on the basis of sex in any educational
program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.
"The final trade-off Cobey will have to weigh it
whether the value of the AIAW membership is enough to
compensate for the added difficulty in complying with
Title IX because of this ruling." Ehringhaus said.
