Faculty Rules on Illinois Case

Special To The Daily
CHICAGO-The Big Ten fa-
culty representatives reiterated an
earlier decision of conference ath-
letic directors this weekend, when
they ordered Illinois to fire Pete
Elliott, Harry Combes, and Howie
Braun or show cause why its Big
k Ten membership should not be
suspended or terminated.
The action followed a futile ap-
peal by Illinois, President David
Henry that the ruling was harsh
and excessive.
Also declaring seven Illini ath-
letes Ineligible for receiving aid
from the $21,000 slush fund, the
faculty body thus completed Wes-
tern Conference deliberations on
individual penalties.
Five of the players were ruled
permanently ineligible, while two
received one year suspensions.

Seven additional athletes were
cleared of charges, because the
aid received was in a singlein ci-
d e n t, "in relatively s m a II
amounts," and was intended as an
emergency loan, or was of such
nature that the grant would have
been legal if administered by the
university rather than through the
illegal fund.
Among the latter group were six
unidentified players, and fresh-
man basketball standout Randy
Crews,
Cagers Ineligible
Those athletes ruled permanent-
ly ineligible were Derek Faison
and Robert Stephens, freshman
football players, Ron Dunlap and
Rich Jones, junioir basketball
players, and Cyril Pinder, a junior
football player.

TIE AND LOSS:

lcers Lose Title, Boysen,
Lee Marttila to Gophers

By GRAYLE HOWLETT
Acting Associate Sports Editor
The Michigan icers journeyed to,
Minneapolis to play the last place
Gophers in a series tabbed as one
with "nothing to lose" for the
Wolverines. But in keeping with
the other Michigan accomplish-
ments this past weekend, the icers
managed to lose the Big Ten Title,
their grip on second place in the
WCHA, and two players, Bob
Boysen and Lee Martilla.
Friday night, the Gophers and
Wolverines battled to a 4-4 tie,
with Michigan failing to get even
one shot on goal in the overtime
period. Saturday night the Wol-
verines erupted for eight goals
but it looked a little puny when
stacked up aaginst Minnesota's ten
tallies.

squad, while Pinder, in addition
to winning the Big Ten indoor
crown in the 60-yard dash his
sophomore year, had been'expect-
ed to spark last fall's football team
before being injured.
The two given one year suspen-
sions were Steve Kuberski, a soph-
omorercager, and Oscar Polite,
another freshman football player.
Marcus Plant, Michigan's facul-
ty representative, announced the
decisions and noted that there was
no Big Ten machinery for appeal-
ing the action on individual ath-
letes.
Henry Statement
Illinois has until March 17 to
decide whether to fire the three
coaches or attempt to show cause.
Henry released a statement yes-
terday, saying that the Univer-
sity's appeal before the faculty
representatives was c e n t e r e d
around the point "that the infrac-
tions of the conference regulations
Oshould be regarded in large part
as an institutional matter and that
the chief penalty should be on the
institution itself.
"I suggested a period of mem-
bership probation during which
time the university would be bar-
red from post-season games, in-
cluding participation in receipts
from such games and would be
subject to period performance au-
dits as the conference might de-
termine to assure the conference
of the university's ability to meet
conference expectations," Henry
continued.

In probably the greatest under-
statement since General Hershey
admitted that the "draft wasn't
perfect," Michigan coach Al Ren-
frew commented on last week's,
action: "Well, the goaltending
wasn't too good."
Big Ten titles are nice, and sec-
ond place might be better than
fourth, but it's a cinch the Wol-
verines were preparing for the
curtain raiser on their second sea-
son. Said season is the WCHA
playoffs which will decide their
representative to the NCAA tour-
nament in Syracuse March 16, 17,
and 18.
Except for the dual injuries,
you could chalk off last weekend's
loss and tie to the team's "point-
ing toward the playoffs." Bob Boy-
sen sustained a knee injury and is
definitely out for the rest of the
year. Martilla wrenched his shoul-
der and is expected to miss the
first playoff gamee Thursday
night, but a deciison on future ac-
tion for the Detroit junior will be
made in the next few days.
"We had a hard weekend up
there at Minnesota," Renfrew
added, "but I can guarantee you
that they will be up this Thursday
for that first playoff game.."
