fly players and their relatives round-trip from
home to campus, The Lansing State Journal
said yesterday.
But the parties named in the copyrighted
story denied that a secret special account exist-
ed or that football players or recruits were
given credit beyond that normally granted
many other students.
Credit was extended to travelers on an in-
dividual basis and not in any special "account,"
and they were required to pay the bill, the
parties said.
The State Journal said a special account
was arranged between MSU assistant foot-
ball coach Howard Weyers and Lee Harring-
ton of Harrington Travel of East Lansing.
The arrangement allowed athletes to travel
on credit against future summer job earnings,
the Journal said.
Fifteen to 20 trips were taken by MSU foot-

The newspaper said a National Collegeiate
A t h l e ti c Association investigator refused
comment on the situation. But the unnamed offi-
dial said hypothetically the use of a fly-now, pay-
later account could be a "problem area" and
"by design, it could be wrong."
The paper quoted the NCAA investigator as
saying a pay-later account set up for re-
cruits-even if they already signed a letter
of intent to come to a university-might be
considered aid from an outside source or
improper inducement.
When a football player asks for travel credit,
the company finds out the youth's financial
situation and asks Weyers or some other coach
if the player is good for the money, Harrington
said. Other MSU students have been able to
travel on future summer job income if they
have good references and appear to be good
risks, he said.
