Palm Beach Post, Thurs., November 14, 1968 C3 MAN IN A HURRY Brundage Reveals Payoffs Rams Nix Deal For Simpson AT A CA2EZ2 &ATB OP MOZS J f. 5 V TuA.M 170 E TV' A GAME NEW YORK (LPI) - Averv Brundage, president of the International Olympic Committee, Wednesday accepted the likelihood there were payoffs as high as $7,500 to "eight or 10" members of the U.S. track and field team, but said the next step, including possible revocation of medals, is up to the Amateur Athletic Union. An AAU official, however, said his group must first have a report from the U.S. Olympic Committee on its investigation of the alleged payoffs, but a USOC official said, "We're interested in getting evidence on it, but at this time we're not doing anything on it. Brundage, 80-year-old head of the IOC, said his organization was aware of reports of illegal payoffs during the games in Mexico City last month but had "no evidence whatsoever." But Biundage said a statement made earlier this week by Douglas F. Roby, president ot the USOC that "we know who the boys were and who received the money" would seem to be evidence enough. Brundage, reached at Santa Barbara, Calif., said the matter would be taken up first by the AAU, which controls track and ! LOS ANGELES (AP) The president of the Los Angeles Rams says the National Football League team doesn't plan to trade away its three firstround draft choices for O.J. Simpson, the University of Southern California star. "We'll use our flrst-rund choices to get three solid new players," Dan Reeves said Tuesday. "We've decided against making a package trade for Simpson." There have been reports that the Philadelphia Eagles, the team most likely to have the first draft pick since It is the only one of the 26 NFL and AFL clubs without a victory, has been looking for a package deal three choices in return for Simpson. "I've heard many rumors myself," Reeves said, "but the fact is that it's more logical to get three men than one. First-round players are more valuable than ever now In a 26-man common draft." Asked what his team thinks of Simpson's value in the pros, Reeves said: "The Rams rate him the highest in the country. Simpson and Gale Sayers are the two most exciting players that have ever Wolfpack Acid Test For FSU By JACK HARPER TALLAHASSEE (AFN) Coach Bill Peterson put his Sem-inoles through their last hard practice Wednesday in preparation for their crucial North Carolina State game in Raleigh which Florida State must win to itay a long shot contender for a M)wl bid.

"Most certainly he would be a tremendous asset to the Rams," Reeves added, calling a package trade to get him "a tempting idea and a spectacular trade of the kind before Les Richter and OllieMatson." But, he said, "It's no secret that the Rams are not the youngest team In the league. We have an opportunity this year that we can't afford to squander."

The AAU has the authority to .strip the individuals involved of their medals, if It desired, Brundage said. Ollan Cassell, an AAU official, said "our hands are tied" until the AAU gets the USOC report, which was begun in Mexico City. "We cannot do anything until we receive that report. They have not presented that report to us, and I have not received any kind of progress report," Cassell said. The U.S. Olympic Committee has jurisdiction for the investigation, he said, because the reported payoffs came while the athletes were under USOC control. Brundage said his IOC would come in only on general survey of the situation and the necessity of controlling identification marks on equipment of any kind. Roby said in Birmingham, Ala.

Each week 40 pairs of sideburns get longer and bushier. Picture posters of the Jet bench would launch a "Beards for Britain" campaign. "There's some rule about beards and moustaches," said Joe Namath after completing 30 per cent of his passes against Houston, "but it's not gonna be very successful. It's a ridiculous rule, and insulting. We're individuals." The poor Oilers had flown from Texas where they play in 70-dcgrees of air-conditioned Astrodome. Against the Jets they played in a cold muddy monsoon. "Everywhere you go people are telling kids that sideburns and mustaches are bad, a bad influence," said Joe who is wearing a flourishing "Fu Manchu," in case you hadn't noticed. "And who's saying this? The parents, that's who. "I like it. If I didn't like it I wouldn't have it. I like to give my face a different look." Joe's blond girl friend Suzy was waiting for him outside the Jet locker room. She was one of only a handful of fans who lasted past the half. Someone told her Joe was shaving. "Oh, no," she cried. "Not his mustache!" But there was little cause for anxiety. When Joe and his entourage emerged every hair was in place. "Thank goodness," said Suzy, and they all went off to Joe's pad where he was giving a big party. men. Rated point favorites over N. C.

Last Year, McKay listened with an attentive ear as coach Dee Andros of Oregon State gave a nice build up to the then undefeated Southern Cal football team during a weekly football luncheon.

This Saturday, the two teams go at It again with more at stake than Southern California's undefeated record, and this time McKay is making sure his players are in better shape mentally. This year, McKay prefers to listen to UCLA coach Tommy Prothro, whose team was beaten by the Beavers last Saturday. Prothro issued a warning to McKay this week to beware of Oregon State. "Oregon State is good on defense and outstanding on offense," Prothro said. "Southern Cal will be in for a real football game Saturday." Saturday's game between Oregon State and Southern California may be the decisive one in determining which team will represent the Pacific Eight In the Rose Bowl. Both teams are 4-0 in the conference with two conference games remaining, and since both teams figure to win their other league game, this is the big one. With offense the key to each team's success, the game figures to be a high-scoring one. Southern Cal relies heavily on the running of O.J.

There's a four-way tie for first place in the Southwest Conference among Arkansas, SMU, Texas and Texas Tech. The Razorbacks, who close with SMU and Texas Tech, seem to have the toughest schedule remaining while Texas, with TCU and Texas A&M left to play, looms as the favorite for the title. Arkansas rates as a seven-point choice for Saturday's game while the Longhorns are a 14-point favorite over TCU. Aside from the top-ranked Trojans (7-0), only five major colleges remain undefeated and untied, and of those, four seem likely to make it through another week unscathed.
