Hayes suffers heart attack

From Wire Service Reports
COLUMBUS-Ohio State Uni-

Hayes was in stable condition
in University Hospital yester-
day after complaining of chest
Neither hospital spokesmen
nor Hayes' personal physician
would specaulate whether the
61-year-old Hayes, who ranks
second among active college
coaches in the number of vic-
tories, had suffered a heart at-
"It will be three days before
any definite diagnosis can be
made," Dr. Robert J. Murphy
said yesterday morning. Mur-
phy doubles as the Ohio State
football team doctor and Hayes'
personal physician.
IT DID NOT take quite that
long to make the diagnosis.

Late yesterday afternoon a hos-
pital spokesman was quoted as
saying that Hayes had, indeed,
suffered a heart attack.
"His situation is stable," the
hospital source said. "He should
be able to resume coaching af-
ter he leaves the hospital."
"I saw him (Hayes) as late
as last week," Murphy said.
"In general, he's in robust

IT IS ALWAYS sad to watch the decay of a once competent base-
ball team. The sixty thousand very odd people who paid their
way into Tiger Stadium earlier this week witnessed one of the
biggest bummers in Motor City history. The Tigers are dead.
The Detroit Tigers have been written off many times before,
only to confound the world by getting hot and surging back into
contention. But this time the long delayed Bengal collapse is
finally upon us, and not even George Kell can hide the sad fact.
In their recently completed series with the Oakland Ath-
letics, the Tigers proved that there are four things of a key nature
that they cannot do very well - hit, pitch, field and run. The A's
found they didn't have to work hard to take two of three.
Bengal batters could only manage 11 safeties in three games
against assorted A's pitchers. This state becomes even more de-
pressive when it is considered that three batters - Al Kaline, Wil-
lie Horton and Mickey Stanley - were responsible for seven of
these hits. The rest of Detroit's hitless wonders wasted their time
wearing a deadline in the grass between home plate and the Tiger
Oakland's batters were not exactly lacing the ball, either. But
then they didn't have to, since the Tiger pitchers were providing
them with free trips to first base.
Mickey Lolich and Joe Coleman, deuces who pose as aces on
this staff, continually got themselves in trouble by putting people
on via bases on ball, and then surrendering a key hit to drive these
runners home. Lolich wasted a fine twelve strikeout effort by his
inability to stop giving up free passes.
All in all, the A's did not face
major league opposition during
their stay in Detroit. But Ralph
Hook is not concerned. After
Coleman made a quick exit
Wednesday night, the major
was heard to say, "Coleman
had good stiff. When you have
good stuff, you're going to give
up a lot of walks."
With the stuff Coleman was
throwing that night, it was for-
tunate that Coleman was walk-
ing a lot of batters, since the
free passes limited them to one
base at a time. Bt that didn't
matter to the "Miracle Major."

into the ambulance that pulled
up to his home to take him to
the hospital. "No way are you
going to get me in that damned
thing," Hayes shosted at doc-
tors who were trying to con-
vince him that the trip was for
his own good.
coaching staff by surprise.
"I telephoned him at home
around eight last night," re-
called tackle coach Ralph Stab.
"He was in good spirits."
George Hill, Hayes' No. 1
assistant, said he also talked to
Hayes Wednesday night. "He
was talking about what we were
going to do Friday. As far as I
know, he's never missed a day
of work."
Hayes and his staff were
winding up their spring football
reports this week before going
on vacation.
WIDELY despised in Ann Ar-
bor, the colorful Buckeye men-
tor has a good claim to being
the top coach in the land. His
famous "three yards and a
cloud of dust" philosophy may
not make for the most enter-
taining game to watch, but it
has generated its imitators
throughout the Big Ten, most
notably Bo Schembechler.
tHyes also possesses one of
the more distinctive thought
patterns in the nation, believ-
ing himself at times to be Gen-
eral Patton. He also has a repu-
tation of being a tyrant with
his olayers and with reporters,
but his most recent trip to the
Rose Bowl seemed to indicate
that he might be mellowing.
A tireless worker and met cu-
lous planner, Hayes has 192 ca-
reer college victories, ;ecoid
only to Alabama's Paul "Bear"
IN 31 SEASONS of high schiol
and college coaching, he has
211 triumphs, 70 defeats and
nine ties.
Hayes has coached longer
than any of his predecessors at
Ohio State, infamous as an in-
tellectual graveyard. His OSU
record is 159-49-8, including
three national championships.

WOODY HAYES collects his thoughts before the Michigan-Ohio
State game played last November. The Olentangy Maestro was
stricken with a heart attack yesterday morning.
