Probation move on KU doesn't hamper activity

Tuesday's NCAA action against Kansas University amounts to a censure, not a suspension or punitive action of any kind. And despite a flurry of wild rumors, KU's athletic competition will not be altered in any way during the year the school will be on probation for alleged recruiting violations. This means simply that KU will NOT be barred from contests in any sport or NCAA-sanctioned tournaments, if it should qualify for the latter. Futhermore, the football team can compete in the January, 1957, Orange Bowl game if it can win first or take second to Oklahoma in the 1956 Big Seven Conference race. Actually, KU's "violation" is one of the mildest on record.
