Illini keep silent
on NCAA findings

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. () - The
University of Illinois has been
notified of findings by the Na-
tional Collegiate Athletic As-
sociation regarding alleged ath-
letic program malpractices at
the school in 1969 and 1974.
ATHLETIC DIRECTOR Cecil
Coleman said yesterday the
school will not decide whether
to accept a presumed penalty
or to appeal to the NCAA Coun-
cil "for a week or two."
In July, 1973, the NCAA sent
Illinois a letter of official in-
quiry regarding alleged viola-
tions in basketball recruiting,
car loans to athletes and other
athletic program irregularities.
Coleman and associate direc-
tor Richard Tamburo went to
the NCAA's Kansas City head-
quarters on July 24 to present
the school's answer to the
charges to the NCAA's infrac-
tion committee.

PORT NATURE, France (AM
- Delegates to the World Na-
turist Congress heard a pro-
posal yesterday that the next
Olympic Games he held in the
nude, as they were in the an-
cient days of Greece.
Nudists from 22 countries
talked excitedly of putting the
discus thrower back in his
old uiform and having the
marathon runaer streak into
the stadium with his flaming
torch to inaugurate I h e
games.
Contact sports like soccer
and fencing would still call for
uniforms, conceded Werner
Dtorfl, the Australian delegate,
who journeyed the farthest to
attend the 14th International
Nudist Convention. So would
skiing and bobsledding, but
there is certainly no reason why
thse track, swimming and gym-
nast events could not be held
in the nude, which is the way
the games began long ago, Dorfi
said.
Some delegates envisioned
placards hung around each ath-
lete's neck with the flag and
name of his country to enable
spectators to distinguish at a
glance the competitors.

a statement: "Late Monday I
received a letter from the NCAA
informing us of the findings in
their investigation of the Uni-
versity of Illinois Athletic Asso-
ciation.
'I have conferred with Chan-
cellor Jack Peltason and there
will be no decision reached by
the University for at least a
week and maybe two weeks.
"There will be no further
comment from the University
on this matter until that time."
It was reported that if the
NCAA penalty is more than one
year of probation for the bas-
ketball team, an appeal will be
filed.
THREE BASKETBALL play-
ers reportedly involved in the
violations long ago dropped out
of school and thedbasketball
coach and the athletic director
at the time, Harv Schmidt and
Gene Vance, also are gone.
This marks the second NCAA
probe of Illinois. The so-called
Illini slush fund scandal of 19
wiped out five athletes and
forced resignation of football
coach Pete Elliott and basket-
ball coach Harry Conibes. The
NCAA also put Illinois on a
two-year probation.

So, please, be careful with fire when
you're in the forest.
