Bobby Hull to depart NHL;
Spartans hire new director
By The Associated Press
* CHICAGO - Chicago Black Hawk star Bobby Hull said
yesterday he may bolt to Winnipeg of the World Hockey Associa-
"I've made a verbal deal with Winnipeg. And if they make
good on it, I'm gone. They'll have themselves a hockey player,"
Hull told the Chicago Tribune.
Hull said that if Winnipeg comes up with the money, "there's
no chance for me to stay in Chicago." Hull is seeking $1 million in
advance of the first year's service and another million for more
years of play.
Hull commented it would just be good business to accept such
an offer and added "it's the first time in the last 15 years I've
* EAST LANSING, Mich. - J. Burt Smith was named Michi-
gan State athletic director yesterday in a moveup from his former
post as assistant and acting director.
The appointment came on a unanimous vote of the eight-mem-
ber board of trustees without trustee comment.
Smith succeeds Clarence "Biggie" Munn, forced into retire-
ment after 18 years on the job by a stroke suffered last summer.
Smith, 55, has been assistant director since 1965, and was an
assistant coach under football boss Duffy Daugherty, MSU's
. CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - The chancellor at the University of
Illinois yesterday ordered the school's own Athletic Association
immediately to make a "comprehensive investigation" of Illini ath-
letic policies and practices already under scrutiny by the Big
Ten and the NCAA.
Wednesday, Big Ten commissioner Wayne Duke disclosed "ath-
letic practices", presumably involving basketball recruiting, were
being probed jointly by his conference and the NCAA.
J. W. Peltason, Illinois chancellor, directed Gene Vance, the
school's "lame duck" athletic director, to request J. G. Thomas, as
the Athletic Association's legal counsel, to assume responsobility
for the investigation.
