College and university presidents were given more control over the National Collegiate Athletic Association after the organization voted last week to restructure.

Advocates of the restructuring measure, which was approved in Dallas at the ncaa's annual convention, believe that academics will receive a higher priority with the higher education institutions' presidents firmly in charge.

At the same time, the convention delegates narrowly defeated several proposals that would have permitted some freshmen to participate more fully in athletic programs even though they did not meet the higher academic standards scheduled to take effect in August.
