OSU charges to be probed
By The 5-oirtted Press
COLUMBUS, Ohio--NCAA and Big Ten
officials say they will inresigate alleged
recruiting violations against Ohio State
University, but it's a move that spokes-
, men say is standard.
NCAA executive director Warren S.
Brown said the organization would look
into the charges hat were made last week
by the Michigan State News, the student
newspaper at Michigan State University.
MSU has been placed on three years'
probation by the NCAA for recruiting
violations. Ohio State football Coach
Woody Hayes recently admitted the
probe of MSU began after he voiced
complaints about recruiting policies at
the rival school.
"I have not had the chance to read the
stories," Brown said. "We've received
all our information first hand. But, we
always look into allegations which ap-
pear in print."
IN THREE copyrighted stories last
week the State News reported that the
OSU coaching staff promised cash and
trips to the Rose Bowl as recruiting in-
ducements. Both are violations of Big
Ten and NCAA rules.
Big Ten Commissioner Wayne Duke
said the conference "has an obligation
to conditct an inquiry into any allegation
"It's just in the normal course of
events that we so," he said.
"I have advised Ohio State of my in-
tention to do so, and likewise I know
that Ohio State plans to do so as well.
It already has set into motion the ma-
chinery to look into the matter," Duke
A SPOKESMAN for Hayes said yester-
day the coach would not comment on the
-11 'nations or investigation.
Eric R. Gilbertson, special assistant to
()SU President Harold Enarson, told the
OSU Lantern, the school's student news-
paper, that university officials are con-
tinuing to check into the violations
charged by the Michigan State Univer-
sity student newspaper, but are having
problems doing so because they say the
charges are so vague.
Tahlman Krumm, assistant director of
communications at OSU said yesterday:
"Frequently when the Big Ten or the
NCAA undertake an invesigation the
university would not know until evidence
is in hand and formal charges are pre-
The Michigan State newspaper also
reported that police officers and an Ohio
high school coach received money for
:ransporting prospective players to the
Columbus campus for visits.
DUKE SAID he expected allegations
from Michigan State, since "in almost
every infraction I've been involved in,
it's quite common to see additional alle-
gations stem from them."
He said he has "no idea as to the
validity of the newspaper reports." If
the allegations are proven, however, the
probe could mean Ohio State might re-
ceive penalities as severe as those MSU
The NCAA found MSU guilty of 34
recruiting violations; the Big Ten has
yet to issue its penalties.

Candelaria hurls no-hitter
By The Associated Press
PI T T S B U R G H -
Pittsburgh's John Candelaria,
aided by two outfield plays by
Al Oliver and Dave Parker in
the second inning, pitched a
1-0 no-hitter over the Los An-
teles Dodgers last night.
The plays by Oliver and
Parkers were the only threats
to Candelaria's classic, the first
fashioned at Three Rivers Sta-
lium since Bob Gibson of the
St. Louis Cardinals beat the Pi-
,ates in 1971.
Oliver, Pittsburgh's center
fielder, gloved Dave Lopes'

nice running catch in the sec- Candelaria, a slim, 6 - foot - 7

right fielder, made a running he started - mowing down the

Candelaria finished with one

in his second full season in the
major leagues, the hard-throw-
ing left-hander flirted with a
no - hitter last season before
giving up a hit with two out in
the eighth inning against the
Atlanta Graves. He eventually
lost that game.
Except for the two plays by
Oliver and Parker and one nice
catch later in the seventh by
Oliver on a drive off the bat of
Ron Cey, all the plays were
routine against Candelaria.
DETROIT - Juan Beniquez
and Gene Clines each drove in
two runs while Nelson Briles
scattered eight hits last night
as the Texas Rangers crushed
the Detroit Tigers 8-1.
Briles won his first game in
more than a month to even his
record at 8-8. Beniquez' two-run
single climaxed a five - run

walk. Beniquez got his hit
and Jim Sundberg drove in
the final run with a single.
Sundberg also singled home
a run in the second inning,
while Clines' two-run single
came in the seventh off Laxton.
Detroit got its lone run in
the sixth on Rusty Staub's
10th home rn of the year.

this season, the first was thrown by Houston's Larry Dierker against the Montreal Expos.
