A medical bulletin from Uni-
versity Hospital said Sternberg's
overall condition remains critical.
Sternberg was paralyzed from the
neck down.

iously injured two weeks ago while

NEW YORK (A')--Carroll Ros-
enbloom, owner of the Baltimore
Colts, was cleared of charges of
betting on pro football games
yesterday as Commissioner Pete
Rozelle completed his investiga-
tion of gambling in the Nation-
al Football League.
The probe resulted April 17 in
the indefinite suspension of Paul
Hornung, Green Bay Packer half-
back, and Alex Karras, defensive
tackle of the Detroit Lions, for
betting on games. Five other De-
troit players were fined $2,000
each and the Detroit club was
fined $4,000.

"There is nothing pressing at
the present time," said Rozelle.
"However, surveillance is a con-
tinuing thing."
Rozelle said action in the Rosen-
bloom case, delayed when the
original announcement on the
players was made, was held up
by private litigation that was dis-
missed June 28 and by the com-
pleteness of the investigation.
Rosenbloom had been accused
by three individuals of betting on
pro football games during a period
eight to 10 years ago. One de-
position charged Rosenbloom with

betting against the Colts in a
1953 game.
Tales Change
Rozelle's report said that the
three accusers later repudiated or
withdrew their charges in new
affidavits given the commissioner.
The commissioner made public
quotes from the affidavit of one
of the original accusers. Robert
McGarvey, a former Philadelphia
detective who lived in Fort Lau-
derdale, Fla. last winter.
McGarvey's affidavit read in
".. ..I did all the betting on the
football games usually small and
losses. Rosenbloom to my knowl-
edge never bet on a pro game. I
thought Rosenbloom would seek
me out and offer me a job or
something, but again failure .
I therefore repudiate my affidavit
which I gave to you and feel
sorry about the whole mess."
Rozelle said Rosenbloom had
delivered to him an affidavit
stating he never bet on a NFL
game after becoming an owner
in the league in 1953.
"He (Rosenbloom) freely ad-

mitted that he has bet substantial
sums on activities other than pro-
fessional football principally golf
games," Rozelle's report read.
"Mr. Rosenbloom has stated that
he has ceased such practices."
Rozelle said the league's in-
vestigative staff had conducted
extensive inquiry into Rosen-
bloom's alleged gambling and had
found no proof he ever bet on an
NFL game since becoming an own-
er in the league.
"In the light of all available in-
formation," the statement con-
cluded, "the investigation of Mr.
Rosenbloom's case has been com-
pleted and the commissioner con-
cludes that the charges were un-
The league constitution flatly
prohibits betting on league games.
However, it says nothing about
betting on golf, cards, college foot-
ball or other sports.
Rozelle said he had advised all
clubowners that in the future it
will be considered detrimental to
the league if there is any betting
on college football.
