State News charges Hayes
EAST LANSING () - Cash, promised Rose Bowl
trips and a coach's car for a weekend were induce-
ments used by the Ohio State coaching staff to recruit
players ,says a copyrighted story in today's Michigan
State University student newspaper.
The State News said one source, who is now a
player at another Big Ten school, said he received
cash from Woody Hayes, the Ohio State head coach,
during a recruiting visit to Columbus in January 1974.
"Coach Rudy Hubbard set up a dinner with Woody
for me," the source told the State News.
"HE TOLD me that I should come to Ohio State
because I would be able to go to the Rose Bowl and
that my family and friends would also be able to go for
"Woody then looked up at me and stretched back
in his chair, reached in his trousers and gave me a
$54 bill and said, 'Have a good time, son,"' the State
The newspaper said Hayes was not available for
comment Tuesday night on the charges, which if true
would be rule violations of the National Collegiate
Athletic Association and the Big Ten. Ohio State Ath-
letic Director Ed Weaver, in French Lick, Ind., to at-
tend a Big Ten meeting, told the newspaper he had
"no comment" on the charges.
The source said Buckeye fullback Pete Johnson was
assigned to be his guide for the weekend in Colum-
bus, and that he met with Johnson and Hubbard
after the dinner with Hayes.
"COACH HUBBARD gave Johnson some money
and the keys to his green Chevrolet . ..Ile told him to
show me around.
"Saturday night, Coach Hubbard gave Johnson his
new red 1974 Gremlin for us to use" the source told
the State News.
"Both nights, we made several stops at bars includ-
ing one which had a cover charge of $3 per person.
And I never picked up the tab on any of them," the
source told the State News.
Hubbard, who is now head coach at FloridaA&M,
said Tuesday he had a green Chevrolet on loan from
a dealer at the time of the alleged incident and that
he still owns a red 1974 Gremlin.
"I CAN remember that I let Pete Johnson use ay
car on several occasions," Hubbard told the State
News. "But I can't really recall that he ever used
either one on a weekend for recruiting purposes."
Concerning the money allegedly passed to Johnson,
Hubbard told the State News, "I never gave Pete John-
son any illegal money. I can't really remember the
incident you're talking about. But we never did any-
thing illegal at OSU."
Hubbard said coaches are allowed to give $10 to a
prospective recruit. He added, "I never want the stu-
dent guide who's showing a prospect around to bear
A second source told the State News Tuesday he
was approached by the Buckeye program when he re-
cruited in 1972. The source, who attended another Big
Ten school and is now trying out as a free agent with
a National Football League squad, said he received a
call at high school from John Galbreath of Columbus,
owner of the Pittsburgh Pirates and Darby Dan Farms.
The source told the student newspaper Galbreath
told him that "if I went to Ohio State, I would be
taken care of for the rest of my life."
The State News said Galbreath was not available for
comment Tuesday night.
Ohio State Athletic Director Weaver discounted the
second sources' allegations about Galbreath as "to-
"I made my statement yesterday on various alle-
gations," Weaver said Tuesday night. "I would suspect
that I would check into the other allegations as soon
as I return to Ohio State."
On Monday, the State News reported that one War-
ren, Ohio, police officer admitted he had received
money from an OSU alumni to take a football recruit
to Ohio State for a visit. Hayes' office said he had no
Last week at a Big Ten meeting in Chicago, State
News reporter Ed Ronders said Hayes "tried to
strangle me" when Ronders asked him about alleged
violations at OSU. Ronders said Hayes threatened
him with a lawsuit if he pursued the subject.

NEW YORK (/P)-Dr. Renee
Richards, the trans-sexual ten-

her right to play in the U.S.

sex-change surgery a year ago
and a name change from Rich-

didn't actually threaten court
action, but left no doubt that
she would take such action if
the U.S.-Tennis Association does
not accept her entry.
Her bid to play at Forest
Hills apparently has the USTA
in a quandry. As of yesterday,
the only comment from a USTA
spokesman was: "The tourna-
ment committee has the appli-
cation under consideration."
