War in Pro Football
Nears End Despite I
Toronto Opposition
*y the Aiuk idled tres*
MONTREAL. Jan. 17.—The
long and costly “war” between
• the National Football League
and th« Canadian professionals
appeared to be drawing to a
dose today.
In fact, only one team wae
forcing the continuation of hoe
tilitiee—the Toronto Argonaut*
of the Canadian Big Four. 1
The Canadian League adopted
a rule Saturday which would re
quire the teams to honor player
options and contract* held by
National Football League clubs.
The action was taken over the
protests of Toronto.'
Yesterday, the Argonauts per
suaded the league to reconsider
the rule. The final decision will
be made by the league’s Board
of Governors, which will meet In
the “immediate future.”
The Toronto club seemed to
be fighting a losing battle, .the
dub protested that it already
had signed eight NFL players
and intended to honor the con
tracts and said the new rule
amounted to “retroactive legisla
Other league officials at the
annual meeting countered that
the Argos should take the con
sequences for signing such a
large group In advance of the
meeting when they knew there
might be changes in the regula
For his part, Bert Bell, com
missioner of the NFL, expressed
surprise at the decision to re
consider the rule.
"I had given them a plan way
back last summer on what I
thought was the right and just
thing to do.” he commented.
Bell said the plan included
honoring all contracts and op
tions, establishing the same eli
gibility rule whereby college
players can’t be contacted until
their class has been graduated,
and an agreement not to re
strain the right of a player to
Bell will meet Saturday with a
committee from the Big Four.

Coast Won't Televise
Barnes Unless NCAA
Adopts Regional Plan
By th* Aftociatvd Prtu
The Pacific Coast Conference
wants regional telecast* of foot
ball games—or nothing.
Athletic directors and .faculty
representatives of the nine con
ference schools bluntly an
nounced yesterday that unless
the National Collegiate Athletic
Association adopts a policy of
nationally controled regional
television, the PCC won’t permit
its teams to be televised next
The Big Ten as well as the
PCC opposed the “game of the
week" plan at the NCAA meet
ing. Both demanded regional
TV, with the Big Ten and Notre
Dame most outspoken. The Big
Ten also has threatened to bolt
the NCAA over TV.
Harvey Cassia, University of
Washington athletic director
and PCC representative on the
NCAA television committee, in
dicated chances of the NCAA
adopting such a program are
poor. He estimated opposition to
the plan is about five to one.
CasslU will present the PCC
proposal to the television com-
I mittee later this week in New
The PCC would have the
NCAA drop its "game of the
week" policy and any other plan
that rules out regional TV. Oth
erwise, the PCC would exercise
its rights “to abstain from par
ticipation in any such television
Under the PCC plan, a school
would televise one home game
(blacked out in the immediate
area) and one away game. Also,
it would allow unlimited tele
vision of night games on Friday
and Saturday and national TV
of conference games after the
Saturday before Thanksgiving.
The PCC ends its conference
schedule on that Saturday each
year, but one or two members
usually play an intersectional
game later.
