Instead of spending his weekend selecting winners for
.Griddes, French Open champion Jim Courier was being
embarrassed by Stefan Edberg at Flushing Meadows.
"Damnit!" he screams at his racket. "Why didn't you tell me
it was time to make my picks?!?! If I had that gift certificate,
I'd be having dinner right now. Instead, I'm out here getting
my butt kicked!"
Welcome to another season of Griddes. To show your
prognosticating skill, all you need to do is pick the winner in
these 20 games, and drop off your ballot by Friday at the
Daily in the Student Publications Building at 420 Maynard
Street. The person who picks the most correct games will
win a $10 gift certificate to O'Sullivan's Eatery& Pub. Don't
be another Jim Courier. Make your picks today.

Grand jury charges
ex-champ with rape
by the Associated Press
Mike Tyson was indicted Mon-
day on charges of raping a teen-age
beauty pageant contestant in a hotel
room early this summer.
If convicted, Tyson, the former
undisputed heavyweight champion,
faces a maximum sentence of 63
years in prison. But the four-count
indictment won't affect Tyson's
Nov. 8 title fight in Las Vegas
against champion Evander Holy-
field, according to promoters.
Marion County prosecutor Jef-
frey Modisett said Tyson was ex-
pected to return to Indianapolis this
week for a court appearance and to
The grand jury charged Tyson
with one count of rape, two counts
of criminal deviate conduct and one
count of confinement.
Don King, a fight promoter and
Tyson adviser, wasn't available for
comment. However, King spokes-
man John Solberg released a
"It's unfortunate he was in-
dicted. We're confident when all the
facts are fully developed he'll be

Vegas but wouldn't be available for

Asked if he was concerned about
the impact of the indictment on the
fight, Rose said, "Absolutely not.
Whatever he has allegedly done is a
separate situation which no one else
can control. I still, think you have,

ing to decide who is theultimate in
Holyfield's manager, Shelly
Finkel, asked if the fight was still
on, said, "Yes it is."
Rival promoter Bob Arum
called for the Nevada State Athletic
Commission to strip Tyson's box-
ing license, and cited an obscure pas-
sage in the state regulation allow-
ing such action if a fighter "is ar-
rested or convicted on a charge in-
volving moral turpitude."
"We have certain rules and regu-
lations we have to abide by," com-
mission vice chairman Luther Mack
said. "We have to meet as a total
commission and take a look at it. We
will decide it at that time."
Tyson was in Indianapolis to
make promotional appearances for
Indiana Black Expo. Tonya
Woodard, public relations manager
for Indiana Black Expo, said the or-
ganization had scheduled a press
The grand jury announced its de-
cision before Marion Superior
Court Judge Patricia J. Gifford.
A warrant was to be issued for
