I understand (here is a move underway by The Texas.Coaches Assn. to curtail all interest and activity In .minor sports such as tennis, golf, I swimming, etc, .Could this possibly be true? confused. Ray Over- ton' of -Cooper president of Texas High School Coaches Assn., presented a proposal :rpr study to the.UIL legislative council concerning equal rules for all U1L activities': A certain season, definite slart- '.ing and stopping dales; same number of games played and same length of work- out season. The Texas" High! School Coaches Assn. has over coaches.-This particular proposal came from.the coaches of small- er schools. Overton, as president, simply made the presentation. These coaches 'were concerned about loss of school time on tennis and golf, cost of travel, the problem of taking a sponsor will the team and finding a substitute for the sponsor when he's traveling. They felt individual sports should be contained In one season rather than both spring and fall competition. Behind their proposal was the rapidly rising costs of athletic programs, especial- ly the extended, periods of time iirminor sports. Cost of travel and meals had be- come a burden. Overtoil says we don't have this prob- lem in Abilene since our school board lias subsidized pur athletic program. And Oveiton'stressed the intent was NOT Id curtail; any program but for equal rules in all sports. Director of Athletics for University In- .tcrscholastic League Bailey Marshall said the legislative council took no action on the proposal. 11 will not be voted on this year. It's possible, of course, that it could brought-up again next year, but if voted and passed would not go into effccL until the 1576-77 school year. Marshall also said the UII, and the coaches are not trying to kill any sport; Q.
