40 'Golesburg Register-Mail f Galesburg; Thuirsdoy, July 5; 1973 Tells of Bribe To Throw NFL Games in ' DALLAS (UPI) — Ed Hughes, game that made an offer for former head coach of the him to throw the last thwe ball Houston. Oilers, said today center Jerry Sturm may have ;face to face with another jer player who offered him 9,000 bribe to influence the spreads in three National ill League games in 1971. [je Washington Post report- Wednesday that Sturm, a 15- yeii» veteran of the NFL and Canadian football, admitted he was* contacted by a former player and personal friend who offered him $10,000 per game to affect the scoring. "He (Sturm) told me he received a phone call before the games," Hughes said. "He reported to me and I reported to the investigating committee of the commissioner's office! prior to the game. "This was probably an hour before game time. It's ironic that we won the last three games." Hughes said both he and Sturm were acquainted with the man who allegedly made the bribe offer, but both the coach and former player have refused to divulge the man's name. "Jerry's completely innocent in this," Hughes said. "He did the right thing." Sturm, who notf lives In Denver, said he turned down the offer because he did not want to jeopardize his family. Sturm retired from football alter playing last year with the Philadelphia Eagles. He 19 now a partner in a Denver restaurant. According to the Post story, spokesman for the NFL said the league had "been aware of this matter .from the very outset." He said all Information had been given to Justice Department authorities. Sturm said the FBI told him a month ago,that he would be asked to testify before a grand jury in Washington. And last week pro football Commissioner Pete Rozelle said that the ease had been re-opened. Hughes, now an assistant with the Dallas Cowboys, said tite rest of the Oilers squad was not told of the bribe attempt nor were owner K. S. "Bud Adams or General Manager John Breen. "It's been quite a few months since I heard from the commissioner's office," Hughes said. "I have no idea why they have opened up the investigation again. I don't know anything was ever done 1971."

(UPI) The underdog majority of the pro golf tour sets out today to attack par on the hilly, 7,010- yard Tuckaway Country Club course in quest of the |20,000 top prize of the Greater Milwaukee Open, It was the first time Tuckaway was site of the GMO in the tourney's six-year history and it should prove to be the toughest layout used yet. Par 72 w411 be broken, but it probably won't take the' whipping it would if the the likes of Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevlno, Arnold Painter, Tom Weiskopf, Bruce Crampton, Gary Player, Billy Casper or Johnny Miller were on hand. That cluster of gilfdom's luperstars and others elected to take the week otf< to prepare for the more prestigious British Open,next week, But the absence of big names should provide plenty of incentive for the lesser lights of the pro tour to cash in on the bigger checks in the $130,000 GMO. Jim Colbert was back to defend his 1072 GMO title, but the Tuckaway course Is considerably longer than the Tripoli former GMO champion trying for a second victory here. Also on hand were Dave Stoc&ton who won in 1000, Ken Still who won in 1000, Deane Beniart who won in 1070 and Dave Eichelberger who won in 1071. . Among other well-known pros appearing were George Archer and Bob Goalby, both former Masters champions; Orville Moody and Ken Venturi, both former U.S. Open winners, and former PGA Champs Al Geiberger and Lionel Hebert. But with the big names gone to England, none of the 150 Country Club course where he entrants stands head and won a year ago. / shoulders above the rest, giving Colbert was not the only all a fair crack at the title.

Sent Back to Minors Bradford had been in the majors since 1967 with Chicago, Cleveland and Cincinnati until suddenly he was sent back to the minors last year by the White Sox. "It's an adjustment having to go back," said Bradford. "It took me about a month to get started again. My first 100 at bats down there (at Tucson) I was hitting about .200, but in the next 100 at bats I began to get my home runs." Bradford finished with a .277 average, in the minors last year and was ready for his return to the majors. In his first six games with the White Sox since being recalled Bradford has batted .316. The Rangers could have used some of Bradford's /talents Wednesday night since they came up with'only eight hits all night against four pitchers—Jim Geddes, Cy Acosta, Bart Johnson and Terry Porster. Allows Two Hits Geddes started the first game and allowed only two hits in 4 1-3 innings and Acosta came on to give up just two more and pick up the win. In the second game Johnson had a no hitter, going through six thanks to some super fielding plays by third baseman Bill Melton and first baseman Mike Andrews, but when he allowed singles to two of the first three men up in the seventh, Johnson exited in favor of Forster. That brought up the only tension of the night. With Chicago leading 3-0 Forster filled the bases with a walk and two runs scored when Jeff Burroughs singled and Rich Billings grounded out. But with two away and the tying run at third Forster forced pinch hitter Pete Mackanin to fly out to center field. Forster went on to record his By ROBERT MUSEiV WIMBLEDON, England (UPI). ~ Alex.Mayer has his heart "set • w that rarity of tennis— an unseeded player in (the Wimbledon singles final.
