Charges of
dopmg heard
FRANKFURT, Ky. (W)-Stuart
Lampe, an attorney for Dancer'b
Image owner Peter Fuller, hasI
asserted that the horse's veteri-
narian put something in the colt's
feed on May 6, two \days after the
Kentucky Derby.
Lampe's assertion was made
Friday during a hearing by the
Kentucky Court of Appeals, The
hearing was called to determine
If an injunction delaying State
Racing Commission hearings on
the 1968 Derby should be upheld.
Also in question were injunc-
tions blocking action by the Rac-
ing Commission on citations it
had issued against Edward S.
Bonnie and Arthur W. Grafton,
two of Fuller's attorneys. /
All of the injunctions were
granted June 8 by Circuit Court
Judge Henry Meigs,
In his assertion, Lampe said
the unnamed veterinarian had put
a foreign substance in the colt's
bran "because he wanted to throw
someone off the trail" after learn-Y
ing that the chemical tests per-
formed on Dancer's Image show-
ed traces of the illegal pain-killer
Lampe said the action was
taken "not with our knowledge."
Grafton and Bonnie removed
the bran from Churchill Downs
after learning of the veterina-
rian's actions because "they didn't
want any phony evidence around,"
according to Lampe.
Lampe admitted that the action
'by Grafton and Bonnie, for which
they were cited by the Racing
Commission, might have been "an
indiscretion or error in judg-
The court ruled at Friday's
hearing that the same procedures
on evidence and subpoenas avail-
able in court proceedings would
apply to the Racing Commission
hearings. This, in effect, gave
Fuller the right to demand and
receive the records and witnesses
he wants prior to the commis-
sion hearings.
Technically, the court dissolved
the original injunction granted by
Meigs, but then ordered that the
commission hearings not be held

A trio of Michigan swimmers
swept the top three places in the
men's competition of the national
junior tower diving champion-
ships in Brandon, Fla., over the
weekend, while two Michigan
coeds captured the top spots in
the women's competition.
Sophomore Dick Rydze topped
all entrants with a score of 437.15,
while senior Jay Meaden and
Bruce McManaman, another
sophomore, finished in second and
third, respectively. Their scores
were 413.95 and 370.0
Micki King rolled up 300.15
points to win the women's title,
with Lannie Loken (daughter of
Michigan gymnastics coach Newt
Loken) second at 293.80.
The Brandon meet was not con-
sidered a major meet, but served
as a tuneup for the national
diving championships in Lincoln,
Nebraska,nJuly 31-Aug. 4. The
Lincoln meet will determine the
U.S. Olympic diving team.
A pair of Loken's charges,
meanwhile are aiming for spots
on the Canadian Olympic gym-
nastics team after placing in the
first of three trial meets.
Sid Jensen, a junior, took sec-
ond in the all-around competition
and Wolverine teammate Fred
Rodney, a senior, was' tenth in
the first trials. The next meet is
to be held July 5-7.
Top man in the first trial was
a former captain of the Wolverine
gym squad, Gil Larose, who grad-

Question of
purpose next
LOUISVILLE, Ky. () - The
1,162-page transcript of the
Churchill Downs stewards hearing
into the 1968 Kentucky Derby,
released one and one-half months
after the hearing, has revealed
more coiplexities in a series of
already complex developments.
The hearing was called by the
stewards after a routine post-race
chemical test showed traces of
the illegal pain-killer Phenylbu-
tazone in the urine of Derby win-
ner Dancer's Image.
After three days of testimony
at the closed-door hearing, the
stewards disqualified Dancer's Im-
age and imposed 30-day suspen-
sions on the horse5s trainer, Lou
Cavalaris, and assistant trainer
Robert Barnard.
According to the transcript re-
leased Saturday, a major part of
the testimony revolved around a
white substance which was put
into the horse's oats and bran
two days after the May 4 race.
Cavalaris testified that the sub-
stance tasted bitter--as does Bu-
tazolidin, the trade name of
Phenylbutazone-and that it had
been placed in the feed by Dr.
Alexander Harthill, a Louisville
Cavalaris called Harthill's ac-
tion an effort "to do me a favor"
but said that he told Harthill "I
don't want nothing to do with
this." . Cavalaris said he then
dumped the adulterated oats into
a manure pile and told a guard
to watch the sack of adulterated
Harthill testified that he put
crushed aspirin into the horse's
food, but said in front of Cava-
laris, Barnard and independent
owner-trainer Douglas M. Davis
Jr. that it was Butazolidin.
Harthill explained that he was
trying to test Cavalaris by giving
him an excuse for the positive
finding in the urine test. "If Ca-
valaris was looking for an escape
hatch, so he wouldn't be the re-
sponsible party, here it was."
Harthill testified.
Later, Arthur Grafton, a Louis-
ville attorney who works for
Dancer's Image's owner Peter
Fuller, took what he thought to
be the adulterated bran and
dumped it on a road near his
home. However, Grafton subse-
quently learned that "someone
switched the bran on me."
Enough of the white substance
was found in -the barn to allow
chemical tests to be run. The tests
showed the substance was not
Dr. . Charles Jarbos, acting
dean of the University, of Louis-
ville medical school's pharma-
cology department, testified that
the tests made on the urine sam-
ples were not conclusive tests. He
said they ranged from "indicative
or inferential" to "the grossest
possible chemical evidence."
Fuller is asking the Kentucky
Racing Commission to overturn
the stewards' decision disqualify-
ing his horse.

time, and we don't want to move

By The Associated'Press
ATLANTA-High school quarterback Charles Dudish, besieged
for seven months by college football recruiters from over the nation,
signed a grant-in-aid Saturday with Georgia Tech.
More than 200 colleges reportedly had approached the 6'1', 205-
pound prep star with scholarship offers and a television network has
flolowed the campaign as part of a special program on football re-
PHILADELPHIA-The first National Football League exhibition
game in Mexico has been scheduled Aug. 11 for Mexico City between
the Philadelphia Eagles and the Detroit Lions.
The announcement yesterday said the pre-season contest, in the
105,000-seat Aztec Stadium will be televised to the United States.
Only one other NFL game has been played outside the United
States, a pre-season match between the New York Giants and Chicago
Bears in Toronto in 1960.
TOKYO-Avery Brundage today blamed sports editors for blur-
ring the distinction between amateur and professional sport.
"It is very simple from our point of view. The Olympic Games
is designed for people who wish to participate in sports for amuse-
ment, as fun, without any thought of material reward. The minute
money enters into it, it is no longer a sport, it is a branch of the enter-
tainment business," the 81-year-old chairman of the International
Olympic Committee told the Foreign Correspondents Club of Japan.
DENVER, Colo.-Curley Culp, a 265-pound lineman from Arizona
State and the Denver Broncos' top draft choice, has signed a "sub-
stantial" contract for the 1968 American Football League season,
Broncos General Manager Lou Saban announced yesterday.
Terms of the contract, reached after a weekend of negotiations
here, were not disclosed.
Culp 22, a former NCAA wrestling champion, was picked in the
second round of the pro draft. The Broncos had traded away their
first round choice earlier when they acquired quarterback Steve
Tensi from San Diego.
WIMBLEDON, England-Arthur Ashe and Clark Graebner, Amer-
ican Davis Cup amateurs, knocked off defending champion John
Newcombe and Fred Stolle in singles as Ken Rosewall and Roy
Emerson also tumbled in a sensational day at Wimbledon yesterday.
Ashe, of Richmond, Va., and seeded 13th, aced Newcombe, the
fourth seeded ro from Australia, for the final point in wlnning his
way to the quarter-finals of Wimbledon's first open tennis champin-
ship, 6-4, 6-4, 4-6, 1-6, 6-3.
Graebner, unseeded New Yorker, used a booming service to rout
pro Fred Stolle of Australia, a three-time Wimbledon finalist and
1th seed, 6-1, 7-5, 7-5.
DETROIT-Star outfielder Al Kaline returned to the Detroit
Tigers' line-upxlast night for the first time in more than five weeks-
at first base.,
It was the first time in his six-year major league career that
Kaline played first base. He played part of one game at third base
in 1961.
Kaline suffered a broken right arm May 25 when he was hit
by a pitched ball in a game at Oakland.
In restoreig Kaline to the active list, the Tigers asked irrevocable
waivers on outfielder Lenny Green. Green will be given his uncon-
ditional release.

Olympic boycott Shy

black athletes'


By The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES - A poll of the
Negro winners of events at the
U.S. Olympic Trials indicated they
plan to go to Mexico City to com-
pete in the Olympic Games this
Despite a publicized plan for a
boycott of the Games by black
athletes, all of those polled said
they would be going to the high-
altitude training site of Lake Ta-
hoe, Calif., in September for the
final trials. And none of them said
they would definitely boycott the
Harry Edwards, leader of those
who planned to dramatize Negro
dissatisfaction with racial injus-
tices in the United States, said,
however, nothing had changed
since the walkout was announced'
last November.
Lee Evans, winner of the 400-
meter dash Sunday, said he
planned to run the event at Lake
Tahoe. Evans said Negro athletes
had met and decided what to do.
However, others said they hadn't
heard there was a meeting.
One of them was Art Walker,
who set an American record in the,
triple jump at 55-1%. He said he
hadn't even heard of any meeting
of Negro athletes.
Erv Hall said he didn't want to
comment on the boycott but said
he wanted to run the high hurdles
and, if possible, on the 400-meter
relay teams at Mexico City.
Charlie Greene, second in the
100 on Saturday, said the news
media had distorted the talk of
the boycott. He said it would all
be straightened out at a news con-
ference planned later in San Jose
or San Francisco.
Tommie Smith, another who
sees merit in a Negro boycott of
the Games, said he was very dis-
pleased about having to run the
200 in the eighth lane. His wife
Denise was so disturbed about the
matter she made a protest to Stan
Wright, U.S. assistant coach and
head of the seeding committee.
But Wright, a Negro himself,
just snorted that the names were
drawn out of a hat and "if some-
one wants to challenge my integ-
rity, they can come and see me."

suits saying "Olympic project for

ringed in green oak leaves.
One young Negro in the stands

Edwards, architect of the plan'
to have Negro athletes boycott the

that decisions have been reached

the United States, several Negro
athletes had told newsmen they
planned to participate in tne
Olympic Games.
A Negro newsman asked Ed-
wards how support could be gen-
erated for an Olympic boycott if
he didn't make the decisions
"We have all the support we
need," Edwards replied. "The
black athletes know and black
people know."
Edwards said the concensus de-
cisions - which he said were
made by a consensus - were
reached in several meetings of
track and field athletes. The last
was at the Olympic Trials in Los
Angeles last weekend.
"Every athlete out there is in
the fold, period," Edwards insisted.
"We forget our differences in
the face of a common enemy. We
can't afford dissension. There is
no dissension whatsoever."
Edwards, chairman of a group
calling itself the Olympic Com-
mittee for Human Rights, said
Negro athletes had not decided
whether there would be a Tahoe
meet for Olympic team candidates
at the high altitude training camp
for American athletes.
"There won't be a Tahoe meet
if we decide there won't be one,"
Edwards said.
"We've already figured out a
way to stop it"

PRIMARIES AND POLLS held this year have shown that millions of Americans
are committed to the idea that the United States can be a just and moral society.
Over 80 percent of the voters in the Democratic primaries this spring chose the two
candidates determned to lead us toward these goals Senator Eugene McCarthy
and Senator Robert F. Kennedy.
Yet in the face of this overwhelming statement, we are told that Democratic
Party "regulars" will ignore the American public and nominate Hubert Humphrey
in August. Does this mean, as the Daily editorial on June 27 elliptically implied,
that there is no hope?




Michigan, Maryland and California are spearheading a nationwide petition drive
for Eugene McCarthy. The goal of this effort is to confront delegates to the Demo-
cratic convention with the names of millions of Americans who are committed to
the candidacy of Senator McCarthy.
