Two major recommendations
that Ritchie said the -commis-.

states to decide individually
whether they want to legalize
gambling within their borders,
and a revision of federal tax
laws to make legal gambling
more profitable for those states
that want legal wagering.
THE FEDERAL government,
Ritchie said, should maintain
control over interstate gamb-
ling, but should provide support
to states that want gambling,

Rick Leach, now a familiar face across the country thanks
to a close-up picture of him on the cover of Sports Illus.-
trated, runs with the ball against Ohio State last year.
Leach had an erratic season in '75, including a poor Orange
Bowl performance. This year Bo Schembechier expects
bigger and better thiings from the sophomore. Apparently,
so does Sports Illustrated.-

didn't make many friends when
he turned in Michigan State,
sending the Spartans up the
river for recruiting violations.
Although he wasn't the only per-
son to tip the NCAA to Michi-
gan State's misdeeds, he has
been the only one to brag about
"Sure I turned them in. And
I'd do it again," Hayes said.
The team he turned in will be
knocking on his door this Satur-
Sday in Columbus, Ohio, in the
opening game of the 1976 col-
lege football season for both the
Buckeyes and ,the Spartans.
In the past, Hayes has punch-
ed and threatened newsmen,
drop-kicked sideline markers
and, generally, done little to en-
dear himself to anybody but 'his
family and Buckeye boosters.
The folly in Hayes' recent
crowing about blowing the
whistle on Michigan State is
that, unlike sideline markers
or members of the media, the
