Notre Dame star fights visitation policy
From Wiret isrvice Reports
SOUTH BEND. lid. - Notre Dame star halfback
Al Hunter caimned that his one-semester suspension
from the university .olated rules published in the
Notre Dane student handbook in addition to his due
process under the l:.v and his civil rights as a citizen.
Hunters attorney Rrbert Stephan told a news con-
ference in his office ye terday that a suit will be filed
in two or three weeks seeking an injunction to keep
Hunter in school aud on the football team.
THE ONE-SEMDES TER SUSPENSION came last
week following a I-in ordeal in which Iunter and five
other foo ball playirs were charged with violating
rules r-garding vi-itation by women in the men's
They were clearvil in an earlier university judicial'
hearing, but that rin' was overturned by an appeals
board convened by Dean of Students James Roemer,
recommending suspension for Hunter alone.
"We o'ject to'hi:n (Roemer) serving as prosecutor
and chief witness in the judicial hearing," Stephan'
said. "In his role as dean of students, he gathered
testimony from alieged witnesses and then testified to
it in his own prosecntion of the case. That would be
unheard of in any court of law."
HUNTER, A S-FOOT-11, 195-pound senior from
Greenvils-. N.C., became the first Irish runner in
history to gain 1,00 yards in a single season. He to-
taled 1,1n yards and scored 13 touchdowns last year
as the trish went 9-3 with a victory over Penn State
in the Gator Bowl.
"I complied with all university directives and pro-
cedures despite their refusal to do so, and now I have
no other -ecourse except a court of law to address
this wrong " said Hantcr, who stands to lose his grant-
-in-aid aid his last -year of football eligibility.
During the course of the case, Hunter had been ad-
vised by outside t ovnnel, although Roemer said uni-
versity regulations permit only representation by stu-
dent attorneys. Stephan was not allowed at the hear-
AFTER HUNTER LEFT NOTRE DAME at the end
of the ser,ester, the appeals hearing was set for June
1. Hunter returned to youth Bend, summoned his stu-
dent counsel and then was found guilty. Stephan then
helped H!inter draft an appeal t(Tthe Rev. Theodore
Hesburgh, Notre Dane president, who declined to over-
turn the appeals recommendation for suspension.
Stephan said Hunter will not seek monetary dam-
ages in tie suit It wilt be based, he said, on Hunter's
contention that the university violated its own rules
and its contract with Hunter, that it violated his due
process a-nd civil rights and violated his basic rights
as a citizen.
ROGEK VALDISFRRI, sports information director
and assi-rant athletic director, said the university
would have no con:ment on the suit "until we hear
what's involved. Well have to study the case."
Hunter aiso wa. one of six players suspended in
1974 folloving a drrmit(,ry incident in which a wioman
claimed sne was raped.
No crineinal chcrges were filed in that case, and
five of te six - ,neoding Hunter and current co-
captains Ross Browner and Willie Fry - returned to
Notre D roe after sitting out one year.

Possibly the crazy conironta-
tion between youth and author-
ity should've been no surprise
after what had passed in the
game It had also been full of
strange and unusual events.
Fidrych made his first major-
league error in the first inning,
when he bobbled a bunt and
threw wildly to first. Richie Zisk
had an awful time in rightfield
for Chicago, looking like a lua-
mox, rather than a major-lea-
guer as he bobbled one ball, and
badly misjudged two others.
Ron LeFlore made a spectacu-
lar catch on what appeared to
be a sure single to center off the
bat of Eric Solderholm.
