Cook said he has submitted a report to the governor disclosing that the former Georgia University coach and athletic director supplied secret information to a rival coach that could have affected the outcome of a game last season, as he was accused of doing in a national magazine. Georgia laws, said Sanders, provide that collusion is a felony if some type of reward is involved. Cook has said he is leaving open" his investigation of whether the former coach gambled on games. » · · * WHILE ACCUSATION'S were flying at Butts, neighboring Alabama today continues its investigation. Players on last season's Crimson Tide team will testify today. It was the Georgia-Alabama game of 1962 that was involved, according to the magazine article. The probe, conducted behind closed doors by a state legislative committee, last week questioned Alabama U. football coach Paul (Bear) Bryant, the other party involved by the magazine. Butts' attorney. WUliaza.H. Schroder, commented that Cook is attempting to clobber Coach Butts without even giving him a hearing. ! think it is most unusual for a so-called impartial investigator to issue a statement such as that released by Eugene Cook." In Birmingham, Bryant's attorneys said the Alabama coach would have no comment One of tie attorneys added, however, "It just ain't so"--a reference to Cook's statement U.S. Senate investigators are seeking to determine if gambling was involved in the game. In Washington, Chairman Joha L. McdeUan, D-Art, cf the Senate Investigations Subcommittee said.
