Illinoi
CHICAGO OP)-The University
of Illinois' illegal athletic acorn
has grrown into an ugly Big Ten
oak with opposing axes flashing
everywhere.
The Big Ten considered the case1
of the $21,000 slush fund closed
Sunday when three involved Illini
coaches resigned to save the school
from conference suspension.

Scandal

But resenting reaction followed
quickly, including:
" Investigation of the case or-
dered by resolution of the Illinois
state legislature, with the probe to
be handled by a 10-member com-
mittee.
* A claim by the foster father
of one scandal-hit Illini athlete
that unnamed recruiters for three

Stop in at 420 Maynard as another
chapter unfolds in the life of Rocky
and his notorious Jr. Manager.

Pete Elliott, Harry Combes and Howard Braun-resigned
University of Illinois coaches-requested yesterday that any
"exorbitant gifts" be eliminated in testimonials for them planned
by Champaign businessmen.
One businessman had said that the goal was to raise
$10,000 for each coach.
"At their request," the statement said, "there will be no
exorbitant gifts. The coaches feel friendships have been too
valued with financial consideration."

Big Ten schools had offered illegalj
inducements to attend those
schools.l
0 And sugggestion of a federal
investigation of collegiate athletics
by one Illinois state representative.
Big Ten Commissioner Bill Reed
has contended since Dec. 16, when
Illinois disclosed existence of the
illegal fund, that if other confer-4
ence schools were guilty of similar
practices, no evidence has been,
submitted to his office.
However, Wednesday, the foster
father of hich Jones, Illinois bas-
ketball star permanently sus-j
pended by the Big Ten, told the
Chicago Tribune that as a Mem-
phis High School standout Jones
received offers above the Big Ten
legal scholarship liimt from re-
cruiters said to represent Indiana,
Iowa and Michigan State.
The illegal inducements, he said,
included a free automobile and
as much as $100 a month spend-
ing money. The Big Ten scholar-
ship is restricted to room-board-
tuition and even bans the $15 a
month spending allowance permit-
ted by the NCAA.
"I didn't take down any names,"
said James Barber, Jones' parent
who is a principal of a Memphis
elementary school. "But a man
who wanted Rich to go to In-
diana offered a free automobile
and spending money. So did a man
from Iowa. And the recruiter from
Michigan State offered to double
any offers we had."
Athletic Director Forest Evas-
hevski of Iowa commented yes-
terday: "If anyone has any validr
information on any violation, I
urge them to take it to the Big
Ten commissioner."

)ead,
Jones, last year the top sopho-
more scorer in Illinois basketball
history, was among five Illini ath-
letes ruled permanently ineligible
by the Big Ten on March 4.
Now a junior, Jones was charged
with receiving a total of $750 from
the illegal Illinois fund, paid at
a rate of '$35 a month.
Still another permanently in-
eligible athlete, star halfback Cy-
ril Pinder from Hollywood, Fla.,
said he received numerousoffers
from colleges across the nation.
Pinder, also a junior, was cited
for accepting $1,645 over 21 years
from the Illini slush fund, mainly
in the form of plane tickets to
visit home.
Other schools, Pinder said, of-
fered cars, checking accounts,
charge accounts and plane fare

Commissioner Reed commented
yesterday on what he described
as the "tor~tuous" three-month
Illini case which culminated in
resignations by head football
Coach Pete Elliott, head basket-
ball Coach Harry Combes and
assistant basketball Coach Howie
Braun.
No Evidence
"I can certainly say," Reed de-
clared, "that we have no such evi-
dence of illegal aid at other Big
Ten schools. If we did, we cer-
tainly would have moved on it."
As for intensified policing at
the conference level, Reed, said:
"If compliance is based on po-
licing alone, you have no chance.
The schools must take a long hard
look at themselves and decide
whether they want to obey the
rules."
Reed pointed out the rulings
against the Illini athletes, includ-
ing the five ruled permanently in-
eligible, did not take away their
grants-in-aid.

leader, fell to a 72 and second
place in yesterday's round.
Wolverine coach Bert Katzen-
meyer seemed fairly satisfied with
his team's performance saying,
"We're making a respectable
showing but I had hoped we could
have played better."
Katzenmeyer singled out Sch-
roeder as the outstanding Mich-
igan golfer. "I'm delightfully
pleased with John's play," he de-
clared.
The rest of the, Michigan play-
ers seem to be having more trouble
with the course at the Biltmore
Country Club. Frank Groves is a
full 12 strokes behind Schkoeder
with a 151 showing. Captain Bob
Barclay slumped to an 85 for a
163 total.
With 36 holes to go, Michigan
is only 19 strokes out of fourth
place, a small margin ink team
golf.
As a hopeful Coach Katzen-
meyer put it, "I think we'll do
better in the next two rounds. I
think we'll make a move."

Corns lofted a high wood shot to
the heavens.
Corns glanced up in the air, took
one look at the ball, and exclaimed
"Fore, Lord!"
