IllinJ
Henry Calls
Penalties
'Too Harsh'
By HOWARD KOHN
Daily News Analysis
Illinois' decision yesterday to
appeal the Big Ten ultimatum
that it either fire three coaches
or face expulsion from the confer-
ence set up an uneasy calm in the
eye of next week's expected storm.
The Illinois retort, hurled by
President Dr. David Henry because
Wednesday's conference penalty
was "too harsh." forces a review
of the situation by the Big Ten
faculty representatives March 2-4
at the regular monthly meeting.
Wednesday's ultimatum, which
demanded that football coach Pete
Elliott, basketball coach Harry
Combes and assistant basketball
coach Howard Braun be dismissed.
was handed down by the Big Ten
athletic directors at a special
meeting.
Illinois must convince the fac-
ulty representatives that there is
sufficient reason to reverse or
alter the ultimatum.
The session could become the
most dramatic deliberation in al-
most 40 years.
In 1929, the Big Ten ousted?
Iowa from the conference for ir-

The story of Pete Elliott and
the Illinois scandal, born in irony,
had an added twist.
Wednesday's ultimatum by the
Big Ten that Elliott be fired un-
less "sufficient cause" could be
shown was released in conjunction
with Northwestern's hiring of
Tippy Dye as athletic director.
Before the Christmas scandal
jeopardized Elliott's status, he had
been a leading candidate for the
Northwestern post.
Although it was never confirm-
ed, one story said that Elliott had
been appointed to the position
three hours before Mel Brewer in-
formed the press of the slush fund
and had been only waiting for
official confirmation.
Another story said that Elliott
had been recruited by Northwest-
ern but that he'd refused the offer.
At that time, the Illinois athletic
directorship was also open.
