$5500 Clipped

Oregon Gets $1390,

Br Bum Newland
PORTLAND, June 16 -(P)-Top-ped
by a $5,500 assessment against
the University of Washington, the
stiffest fines in the history of the
Pacific Coast conference were
levied today against member
schools for athletic code violations.
Faculty' representatives threw
the book at some offenders in an
effort to put the athletic morals of
the conference on the highest
plane possible. All ten member in
stitutions were fined varying
amounts for the third successive
year. . ,
The University of Idaho re
ceived the second largest fine
14,010. Washington State college
drew a penalty of $3,720 and Stan
ford university $2,890. The Univ
ersity of Southern California was
charged $2,370 and the University
of Oregon $1,390. Lesser fines
were set as follows: University of
California at Los Angeles, $555;
University of California, $350;
University of Montana, $200; Ore
gon State college $120.
It was the second straight year
that Washington headed the list,
being fined $3,550 in 1948.
Individual cases and reasons for
penalties against each school were
not made public. The Infractions
covered 26 categories, from sal
ary to an athlete for working on a
mythical Job to Illegal recruiting
by alumni. Some violations were
technical, such as irregularities in
bookkeeping, but the faculty men
"went along almost unanimously
with the findings -of Commissioner
Victor O. Schmidt.
Assessment of the fines, which
go Into the conference treasury,
was the final" action of the three
day convention. Earlier today the
convention awarded the 1050
track and field meet to the Uni
versity of California, for May 28
17; and moved up the football
practice season to a full 18 calen
dar days before the first game
when the season starts before
Sept. 18. Until now practice be
gan Sept 1.
The conference voted to pro
hibit televising of official motion
pictures of conference-sponsored
athletic events. Individual schools,
however, may contract for direct
The annual winter meeting was
set for La Playa hotel, Carmel,
Calif., Dec. 11-14.
The code violation fines totalled
821.105 well above last year's
$8,150. Commissioner Schmidt ex
plained that penalties were upped
considerably in cases of repeat
violations. "Our code la stricter
that the National Collegiate Ath
letic, association sanity code," he
said. "Many of the violations for
which Pacific Coast conference
- members were fined would not be
regarded as such by the NCAA."
Aggressive alumni and support
er who pursued athletic talent for
old alma mater were singled out
as unidentified pests to the con
ference's peace of mind.

In Los Angtlts Romp
Southern California's perennially
powerful Trojans and the Spar
tans of Michigan State appear to
be leading contenders for team
laurels tn the national collegiate
track and field championships
here this weekend.
Such was the way the dopesters
viewed the 2$th annual cinderpath
carnival Friday and Saturday
afternoons as athletes by the score
continued to arrive in Los Angelea
today. i
Seventy-fire universities and
colleges have entered contestants
in a field exceeding 300. Number
ed are nearly a score of lads who
competed"" Tor Uncle Sam in the
1948 Olympic games at London.
Unbeaten n dual meet compet
ition, Michigan State and USC
battled to a 61-61 tie here last
April 16 in one of the best meets
of the season. Loral observers un
hesitatingly pick the Trojans to
bag their 13th national champion
ship, with Michigan State runner
up and the undermanned defend
ing titleholders. Minnesota, to
finish far down the line.
Spearheading the Trojan team,
of course, is sprinter Mel Patton,
who figures to score a double vic
tory for 20 points in the 100 and
220 yard dashes.
Much will depend on pole
vaulter John Montgomery, whose
best mark of 14 feet IS inches
tops the best in the country this
season. A mishap, or an exception
al effort by two-time defending
champion, George Rasmussen of
Oregon, or Tom Bennett of Wis
consin, would throw the Trojan
hopes into a knot.
