chance to consider this proposal?
  The Wisconsin faculty has not voted
as yet, but must do so before the Febru-

want to add, incidentally, that we sin-

  The agreement provides for no spe-

that alumni and friends of the Univer-

school's athletics and funnel all financial

athlete to select the institution he at-
