Canham to aid WSU gridders

ANN ARBOR (AP) -Wayne State
University's money-short football
program stands to receive a shot in the
arm if the Tartars' alumni respond to a
special offer by University of Michigan
Athletic Dirctor Don Canham.
Wayne State is scheduled to play
Slippery Rock in Michigan's 101,000-
seat stadium on Sept. 12 and will
receive 25 percent of the gate receipts.
HOWEVER, IN a special mailing to
97,000 Wayne State alumni, mostly in
southeastern Lower Michigan, Canham
offered to throw in another $1 per ticket
as a "bonus" to the beleaguered Tar-
tars' football program.
"Each Wayne State alumnus who
buys a ticket can designate $1 of the
ticket for either the school's athletic
department or development fund,"
Canham explained. "This, of course, is
in addition to Wayne State's guaranteed
share of gate receipts."
Tickets for the game, which sell for,
$6, also are being sold by some 10,000
high school band members around
Michigan, all of which will perform at
halftime of the game against the Pen-
nsylVania team. The bands will be of-
fered $1 for every ticket they sell,-
Canham said.
The Wayne State football program is
fighting for its survival as a result of
budget problems at the Detroit univer-
sity. Wayne State officials have ap-
proved competition for the 1981 season,
but the future of Tartars' football
beyond that remains in doubt.

NEW YORK (AP) - Itwill be at least
another week before a decision is made
on whether to fine and suspend John
McEnroe for his behavior at Wim-

men's singles and doubles champion-
Marshall Happer, administrator of
the Men's International Professional
Tennis Council, the governing body of
the sport's Grand Prix events, said
yesterday he had just received from
Wimbledon its report and umpires' and
linesmen's statements on McEnroe's
HAPPER HAD set July 21 as a ten-
tative hearing date, at which McEnroe
would be represented by his father,
John Sr., a lawyer. "I had to postpone
that date because I hadn't heard from
Wimbledon," he said. "I got a big
package from them this morning. It
will likely be a week or two before the
issue is resolved."
After McEnroe tells his side of the
story, the nine-man council will decide
whether to levy as much as $14,750 in
fines and add a suspension of up to 21
days. If it votes to fine and/or suspend,
the matter will go immediately to an
independent arbitrator.
McEnroe was slapped with three
minor fines of $750 apiece for comments
directed at Wimbledon officials during
the tournament. He is appealing one.
