10 Gofesburg Register-Moil, Golesburg, III. Soturdoy, Aug. 17, 1963 Libel Suit Will Be Sent to Jury Early Next Week By LEON DANIEL United Press International ATLANTA (UPI) — Attorneys in Wallace Butts' $10 million libel suit against the Saturday Evening Post sharpened their final arguments today for the curtain ringer next week to one of college football's sharpest controversies. The trial was in recess today and Sunday following two weeks of testimony and arguments in federal court The 12-man jury is expected to get the case late Monday after final summations are concluded and Federal Judge Lewis R. Morgan instructs them. Butts, the round little man who once led powerful football teams from the University of Georgia to Southeastern Conference championships and into the nation's bowl games, was pictured alter- Twin Bill Slated for Cleveland By -THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Cleveland's Municipal Stadium, which has had a somewhat deserted look for baseball this summer, may strain under the weight of upwards of 80.000 fans tonight for a doubleheader—in pro football. Prospects are better than average for an all-time Cleveland crowd as the Detroit Lions play the New York Giants and the Cleveland Browns face the Baltimore Colts in a pair of National Football League exhibition games. All 67,000 reserved seats have been sold and 13,000 unreserved seats and some standing room tickets will go on sale 2Vi> hours before the first game starts at 6:30 p.m., EDT. The Cleveland football record is 82,872, set by the Browns and the Giants in a regular season NFL game in 1960. The big doubleheader, a repeat of an attraction that drew 77,683 last year, is the feature of a packed Saturday pro football exhibition program. Four other games are scheduled, with Green Bay at Dallas and Minnesota at Los Angeles in the NFL, and Kansas City vs. Oakland at Seattle and San Diego at Denver in the AFL. The heavy weekend program was kicked off Friday night with three games. In the National League, the St. Louis Cardinals made their pre-season debut a happy one, edging the San Francisco 49ers at Salt Lake City, 24-22; and the Pittsburgh Steelers whipped the Philadelphia Eagles 24-13 at Bethlehem, Pa. In the lone AFL game, the Buffalo Bi­ sons overwhelmed the New York Everywhere you look there's a WHITE ROOF WHITE'S INSULATION 342-0185 nately Friday of a lover of night life and a man ruined by a slanderous story. The Post claimed in an issue last March that Butts, while athletic director at Georgia, gave away football secrets to Alabama coach Paul (Bear) Bryant prior to last fall's Alabama-Georgia football game. Both heatedly denied the allegations and both sued for $10 million. Bryant's suit is still pending in the federal court in Birmingham Jets at Buffalo, 23-8. where Post attorneys are trying ! to get it moved to another state because they claim they can't get a fair trial in the popular coach's home territory. Shouts To Jury In the opening of final arguments in the Butts suit Friday, Butts' attorney shouted' to the jury that the career of the former coach and athletic director was "ruined" and Butts was "heart broken and a shell of his former self." "March 18 was the blackest day to Wallace Butts that could ever befall any man," the attor ney, Allen Lockerman, said. "That was the day the article hit the newsstands. On that day Wallace Butts became ashamed, heartbroken, just a shell of him self." Post attorney Welborn Cody contended that Butts "snapped" because of too much night life and had plunged to the point where his best friends said he had "lost his character." Cody said Butts was asked to resign as coach after 22 years because of his personal conduct but permitted to remain at the school as athletic director. "This same night life" led to Butts' forced resignation as athletic director, Cody said. Tells Of Notes Speaking of the notes Atlanta insuranceman George Burnett testified he made in overhearing a telephone conversation between Butts and Bryant nine days before Alabama walloped Georgia 35-0, Cody said: "These notes were made by an amateur, not a football coach. "A lot of them don 't make any sense. But there is a lot in these notes." Cody emphasized a notation Burnett made on the final page of the notes: "Give Wally a" ring Sunday." "This call (Sunday) from Bear Bryant to Wally Butts lasted an hour and seven minutes," Cody said "And Butts and Bryant now say they do not remember such a call." V Ai •ffp Li* uiL-.

(AP)— Mickey Wright boomed a 222-yard hole-in-one and toured the long and tough Paradise Hills Country Club course in three-under-par 69 Friday for the first-round lead in the $11,000, 54-hole Albuquerque Swing Parade Women's Golf Tournament. The 69 gave her a two-stroke edge over Peggy Wilson, a former Austin, Tex., physical education instructor who slipped around the course in obscurity. "It wasn't a very spectacular round," long-hitting Mickey commented afterward. "I struggled just to stay even until the 16th." It was there that she belted a two-iron shot which bounced twice and rolled about four feet into the cup. Mickey and her gallery did not know it was in because the cup was out of sight behind a mound on the green.
