(AP)-TI« college basketball belting scanda that has smeared New York and this cage- proud town today was expected to spread to a near' eastern Even a* authorities sought to s.well the list of five Bradley Uni- vtrsily brioe-accepting' players in $6,500 paycfl It was reported that New York District Attorney Frank Hogan was prepared to drag a school between here and New York into the mushrooming cage scandal. Vincent A. G. O'Connor, assistant New York district attorney, disclosed thnt the vicious activities of gamblers had touched another unsuspected hinterland school. O'Connor, who has been assisting in in-earthing the surprising bribery at Bradley, one of the nation's top cage schools the past two years, dec.'ned to reveal the next school under suspicion. "Just let us say that our Investigation of the New York scandal Ifd one team of investigators to this public eye within a day or t«»." Meanwhile, five members of Bradley University basketball team were in technical .ciistcdy for accepting bribes from gamblers. Two More to Be Questioned They vierf all-American Gene Melchiorre 23; William Mann, 24; Aaron Preece, 24; Charles (Bud) Grover, 22; and Jim Kelley. 21, who still has another year of competition at Bradley, The other four are out of school. O'Connor said that two more Bradley players remain to be questioned, but It was believed neither was seriously implicated in the Bradley "fixers" which Involved Bradley's 61-59 win over Washington State College, and Bradley's 77-74 triumph over Oregon State last Dec. 7. The "fix" was on a point-spread basis. At New York, it was announced Nicholas ITIie Greek) Engllsis, and his brother. Anthony, both of Brooklyn were under arrest for conspiring to fix two Bradley games, One involved a Bradley vs. Bowling Green (Ohio) game at Madison Square Garden in New York in the 1048-19 season, and a Bradley vs. Si, Joseph g&me at Philadelphia in 1350. Neither game was under fire Mi the investigation here. "Just a Bombshell" . District Attorney Hogan. who announced in New York the arrest ol :he two Englisis brothers, also said an alarm was put out lor a third man. He wai identified by police as Jack Wast, alias "Zip," 39. Hogan's office said West was wanted on charges o! bribery in connection with the case. Coach f'crdy Anderson of Bradley was distraught after the disclosure his players were involved In the bribery. "It's Just a bombshell In our laps," said Andersrm. "Who's to blame, we -don't know. Maybe Its just the philosophy that seems to be prevailing in this country that a dollar is easy to get. "1 know in my time, a bribe offer would have got the guy offering it a punch in the nose. Maybe things are different now. r.still think there must have been tremendous mental torture allectinj; those kids. I don't think those lads are bad boys, and 1 want the full story before I criticize them' Peoria County State's Attorney Michael A, shore said the case would be turned over to grand jury investigation as soon as his piobing was complete.
