Two of Mason's counts dropped

ot i

TUSCON, Ariz. (AP) - Former
University of Arizona football Coach
Tony Mason faced two fewer charges
yesterday, both dropped at the
prosecution's request.
Mason, a former Michigan assistant
football coach, still faces 21 counts of
conspiracy, fradulent practices, theft,
filing a false claim and tampering with
a public record.
DROPPED BECAUSE of a legal
technicality - a change in the law un-
der which he was charged - were a
charge of theft and one of filing a false
claim.
Mason was charged in connection
with an alleged scheme to bill the
university and receive reimbursement
for trips never taken. Six former
assistant coaches and an airline em-
ployee also were indicted in the case.
On Thursday, when the two charges
against Mason were dropped, his trial
was rescheduled for June 9 because of
the unexpected resignation of one of the
prosecutors. It had been set for May 12.
Tigers recall Fahey
DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Tigers
reactivated reserve catcher Bill Fahey
and placed backup catcher Duffy Dyer
on their "designated for assignment"
list yesterday.
Both Fahey and Dyer are with the
club in Anaheim, Calif., where the
Tigers are to play a weekend series
with the Angels.
FAHEY WAS obtained from the San

Diego Padres of the National League
near the end of spring training and
Dyer was given permission to shop
around for a spot with another club.
However, Fahey chipped a bone in his
wrist during the Tigers' final exhibition
game and Dyer was invited to come
north and begin the season with the
Tigers.
Neither Fahey, who hit .257 and drove
in 22 runs for the Padres last season,
nor Dyer, who hit .185 and drove in 11
runs for the Tigers, was expected to be
anything but a backup to Lance
Parrish, the club's No. 1 catcher.
Hayes satisfactory
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Doctors
treating former Ohio State University
football Coach Woody Hayes for a per-
sistent chest cold have found gall stones
that may have to be removed, accor-
ding to a University Hospital
Spokeswoman.
Hayes remains in satisfactory con-
dition, although his chest cold was
reported much improved.
HAYES, WHO ALSO was suffering
from bronchitis, was being treated with
' intravenous antibiotics, and was un-
dergoing undisclosed routine tests.
Hayes, 68, checked into the hospital
late Wednesday afternoon.
Hayes has been a professor emeritus
in the university's Department of
Health, Physical Education and
Recreation since being fired as coach
following the 1979 Gator Bowl. His

dismissal occurred after he slugged a
Clemson University player in the
waning moments of a 17-15 loss.
Hayes suffered a heart attack in June
1974, but was back coaching when the
Big Ten football season opened three
months later.
Iowa nine take two
EVANSTON (AP)-Iowa's Bill
Drambel held the Northwestern Wild-
cats to one run and six hits yesterday as
the Hawkeyes breezed to a 5-1 win in the
nightcap of a Big Ten double-header.
John Trautwein hurled a four-hit
shutout in the opener as Northwestern

downed the Hawkeyes 3-0.
In the nightcap, Iowa's left-fielder
Mark Tate rapped a two-run single in
the second inning to give Drambel all
the runs he needed. Junior center-
fielder Tim Gassmann added a solo
homer in the sixth.
Sneva holds pole spot
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Tom Sneva,
who holds the qualifying record for the
Indianpolis 500, drew the top spot for
pole qualifying today at the Indianpolis
Motor Speedway.
Sneva and his new Cosworth-powered
March chassis did not make it onto the
oval until Thursday.

Traeksters host double
dual at Ferry today.
By JOHN FITZPATRICK
Using an unusual and interesting format, Michigan's men's track team will play.
host to the University of Chicago Track Club at the Ferry Field track today, while
Michigan State and Eastern Michigan conducta dual meet at the same time.
All four teams will compete in the same races, with the exception of short races
such as the 100 and 200-meter dashes, which will be run in separate heats.
MICHIGAN WILL be competing with an eye toward the Big Ten meet next
weekend at East Lansing where the Wolverines hope to challenge powerful Illinois
and Indiana. Illinois edged Michigan at the indoor Big Ten meet last February,
and Indiana nipped the Wolverines ina dual meet last Saturday, 73-71.
A number of outstanding athletes will be competing from each squad.
Michigan's Andrew Bruce, the versatile sprinter from Trinidad who won the Penn
Relays 100-meter dash in a sizzling 10.36 seconds last month and was the victor in
his first 400-meter race of the outdoor season (46.92) against the Hoosiers last
weekend, will be running the 400 and 200 meter. Bruce will be "doubling" in these
events in order to toughen himself for a possible 100-200 double at the Big Ten's,
according to assistant coach Ron Warhurst. Another notable dashman for the
Maize and Blue, Butch Woolfolk, is also slated to compete. Woolfolk ran to a fast
sixth place at the NCAA championships last year in the 200 meters (20.56).
Also competing for the Wolverines will be high jumper Dave Lugin, who has
jumped consistently over seven feet this season; John Nielsen, a frosh shot putter
who may soon crack 60 feet, Shelby Johnson, who is enjoying his best season ever
as an intermediate hurdler, and a number of gifted distance and middle-distance
runners, such as Brian Diemer, Gerald Donakowski, Bill Weidenbach, Dave
Lewis, Mike Shea, and Dan Beck. Michigan's James Ross, the best long jumper in
the Big Ten, should also make an appearance.
Eastern Michigan's Jim Loton will add spice to the pole vault field, as his 168"
indoor performance rates him with the best in the country. MSU's Tony Gilbert
(51'1;14" triple jump) and Micheal White (2:23.99 1,000 meter) should liven up their
events.
