Bo, Dean Fined Cook said his conclusion was that a September telephone call between Butts and Bryant was more than casual football talk. "The evidence, after a thorough investigation, indicates that vital and important information was given about the Georgia team, that it could have affected the outcome of the game and the margin of points scored," Cook said. THE ATTORNEY general's investigation started nearly two weeks ago after the Saturday Evening Post charged in an article that Butts and Bryant were in collusion to rig the Sept. 22 game which Alabama won, 35-0. Butts and Bryant have denied the Post charges. They have said they talked by telephone on various occasions about rules of the Southeastern Conference. Butts has filed a $10,-000,000 libel suit against the Post publishers. As the state investigation neared a climax, Cook said he would try to get his report to Governor Carl E. Sanders by Tuesday. Sanders ordered the investigation in the wake of the Post article. "But the area of investigation concerned with gambling will be left open," Cook said. He has said his investigation thus far has uncovered no evidence that Butts or Bryant gambled. U.S. Senate investigators are seeking to determine if gambling was involved in the game. State Investigtors, headed by Cook and his top assistant, James H. Therrell, said evidence compiled by a team of six men working at nights anrd on week ends Johnston, If . national League competition, wasn't entirely satisfied with his showing, however. He Napier, c ... Davidson, Sparks, p ... Drapcho, . wasn't able to do much with $250 By Rigney insurance salesman, George P. Burnett, said he was accidentally cut in on a Butts-Bryant conversation. Two polygraph tests, one administered by Georgia Bureau of Investigation Chief B. G. Ragsdale, indicated Burnett was telling the truth about what he said he heard Butts giving inside information on the Georgia team to Bryant. Both Cook and Ragsdale said Friday the state test indicated Burnett was telling the truth. Butts and Bryant, on advice of attorneys, did not submit to polygraph tests from Ragsdale as requested by Cook. Both said they took other tests which indicated they were innocent. Their attorneys said new tests would serve no useful purpose. All Georgia coaches except one said if the information noted by Burnett was given, to Bryant, it could have affected the game's outcome. A letter from Dr. Frank A. Rose, University of Alabama president, to Dr. O. C. Ader-hold, University of Georgia president, quoted Bryant as saying he received from Butts information about Georgia offensive plays. ROSE SAID LATER his March 6 letter was concerned with defensive rules discussed by Butts and Bryant and that he did not intend to suggest football secrets were involved. He said that where the letter referred to "plays," he meant "techniques." Cook already has said he found no violation of state laws and has indicated final disposition of the matter will rest with the SEC on ethical, not legal, grounds. "I want to emphasize that this state investigation was aimed solely at an impartial finding of facts in this case," Cook said.
