ONE MORE YEAR AND NCAA ATHLETES CAN GO OUT ON THE JOB MARKET

          The NCAA Div. I Board of Dir have delayed the
     implementation of Proposition 62, which would allow student-
     athletes to work and earn money during the school year.  It
     will now go into effect August 1, 1998.  The delay was "to
     permit further evaluation and development of guidelines and
     processes to initiate, review and monitor student-athlete
     employment" (NCAA).  Big 12 Commissioner Steve Hatchell:
     "There is a strong sentiment to provide windows of
     opportunity for the student-athletes.  It's been left open to
     just enormous interpretations.  How much can you work?  What
     kind of jobs?  How do you verify the jobs?  And those are
     just a few of the questions" (WASHINGTON POST, 8/14).
