Arkansas COMPLETE INSURANCE COVERAGE FARM AND COMMERCIAL LOANS Ohio State Won't Appeal e I-Year Probation for Aid to Gridders By FRITZ HOWELL COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Buffeted by the biggest pres. tige blow in its history — a 'one-year probation by the Big Ten for violations of the sports code — Ohio State University started today to put its athletic house in order. Kenneth L. (Tug) Wilson, West- * ern Conference commissioner, announced the penalty yesterday in Chicago after a long and intensive probe. The edict eliminated thd Bucks from all chunce at next season's Rose Bowl bid, should they win an unprecedented third straight conference football crown; ordered Coach Woody Hayes to comply with the rules regarding financial aid to athletes; insisted that the university supervise the work program oi athletes diligently; and declared some 20 gridders temporarily and theoretically ineligible. The players involved were not named. Michigan State is the only other school ver placed on probation in the Big Ten. That was in 1953. Ohio State officials, while deploring the severity of the penalty, did not plead Innocent. Athletic Director Dick Larkins said, , "We have had a long and thorough investigation by the Big Ten. We have no appeal. We do not deny technical guilt and we have been penalized." i To Accept, To Abide President Howard Bevis observed, "We will accept the judgment of the commissioner and abide by it. Any violations of the rules of which we have been guilty will be stopped. We mean to live within the rules." Coach Hayes said: "Commissioner Wilson's decision comes as a terrible shock to all of us. All my life I have been taught to respect properly delegated authority, and for this reason I do not believe we should appeal the decision. This, however, does not infer that I agree with the .severity of the penalty, nor the manner in which the investigation was made." Hayes, was the principal target of Wilson's statement. The commissioner said: "Football-Coach Woodrow Hayes Memphis Bounces Back By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Nashville's .Vols are acting like a man who stepped into an open elevator shaft — the only way they can go is down. Ernie White's club started the Southern Association season with a bang, winning three straight. Then they -lost a couple and won a couple and that's when the bottom fell out. Ten days ago the Vols won the first game of a double-header with Chattanooga. They haven't won since. New Orleans whipped Nashville last night 4-0, handing the Vols their ninth straight setback : and their first shutout of the I season. Upper Bracket Jump The victory vaulted New Orleans into the first division as Atlanta blew a four-run lead, bowed to league-leading Memphis 6-4 and tumbled into fifth place. Chattanooga clobbered Mobile's $100,000 has acknowledged assistance to unnamed members of the Ohio State football squads from his personal funds hi amounts which are said to total approximately $400 annually over a period of five years." The statement also said Hayes had refused to name the beneficiaries of the assistance. Wilson states his investigation is continuing because of "Mr. Hayes' refu-: sal to provide an accounting of this assistance." bonus lefty, Billy Joe Davidson, and beat the Bears 6-5 and Birmingham blasted Little Rock's cellar-dwelling Travs 10-2. New Orleans southpaw Don Kildoo blanked the Vols with a fine six-hitter. He issued four walks and struck out 10, pitching: himself out of his only jam when he got Bobby Durnbaugh to pop up with the bases loaded in the fourth. Emil Panko's single and Joe Erautt's double drove in three Pe! runs in the sixth and Jim Rice doubled in another in the ninth. Prank Wehner's homer with the bases loaded in the eighth was merely insurance for Birmingham's Barons, who play host tonight in the first game of an important three-game set with Memphis. Trailing the Chicks by three games, the Baront; could move out front by sweeping the series John Wingo went the route for his third victory against no losses. Hooks lott, chased in the first by a five-run Baron barrage, was the loser. Bonus-boy Davidson wad slammed for eight hits and' six runs before he bowed out with nobody out in the fourth. Walt Kellner and Don Nance held the Lookouts to one hit the rest of the way, but it was too late. Zeke Zeisz gave up 12 hits but man- .ged to hang on all the way. Atlanta had Memphis on the ropes for seven innings, leading 4-0 on home runs by Sammy Meeks, Bob Montag and Bill Gabler. But in the eighth Dick Grabowski served up ' a gopher ball to Jim Marshall with a man aboard. Then in the ninth the Chicks, hitting Grabowski and relievers Terry Fox and Jim Spencer indiscriminately, parlayed four hits, a wal kand an error into four more runs. Roster Changes Ancient Al Papai (he's 37) was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the ninth but got credit for his third victory against no setbacks. Memphis and Little Rock have made some roster changes. The Chicks sold first baseman Gordon Goldsberry to Tulsa of the Texas League and Little Rock has acquired Clem (Scooter) Koshorek, shortstop of the Travs 1951 championship team. Ernie White, new manager of Nashville's Vols, started his managerial career by winning the 1049 pennant and playoffs with Bluefield, W. Va., in the Appalachian League. ike your oM ffc FABULON the fobu/ous floor finish MISSISSIPPI COUNT! LUMBER CO. I8U1 W.
