J 4 Fietfjs Putting Form Lee Eilbracht, head baseball coach at the University of Illinois, watches Jack Doyle of Galesburg putt Monday at Soangetaha. It was Mini Day at Lake Rice. Illini Day Held At a nge ta ha By JOE MORRISSEY (Sports Editor) Wherever Cecil Coleman goes, the NCAA investigation of the University of Illinois athletic program is the topic of discussion. This is understandable since Cecil Coleman is director of athletics ait the state university which is currently under fire from tfie NCAA for tiie second tme in five years. Without naming names or defining specific charges, Coleman tried to explain the status that presently exists because of tfce recent investigation to those attending the Illini Day dinner Monday night at Soangetaha Country Club. "Whenever 'there are charges of irregularities in an athletic program by a person or persons, it is standard operational procedure for the NCAA to make an investigation," Coleman explained. We were informed of the charge and of the ensuing investigation," Coleman said. "I have also been delegated to conduct our own investigation to find out exactly what had happened. That's exactly where things stand at this time. The thing had been blown out of proportion." Coleman promised the group that whatever happened it would not affect football this fall. "I can assure you it will not bother the football program," he said and added with tongue in cheek: "When we win the Big 10 we will be able to play in the Rose Bowl." The big concern apparently is over a pair of basketball players and just how they acquired cars they are driving around*. "I'm convinced no member of the staff is involved," one coach said in a discussion later. I think it's the result of some overzealous • a\umni. I don't think it will amount to more than a slap on the wrist." In 1968 the punitive action enforced by the Big 10 Conference on Illinois amounted to much more than a mere "slap on the wrist.'' The athletic program was put on probation for three years. "What really hurt then was that we could have pulled the whole conference down with us if we wanted too," one coach "We had proof of similar in several other combination of both. Coleman was with a group of Illinois coaches and . grants-in- aid personnel who played golf and attended the annual Illini Day dinner at Soangetaha. The Illini group joined focal players for the day of golf. Included in the group were Dike Eddleman, associate project director in the grants-in-aid program; John (Red) Pace, project director; Lee Eiibrecht, head baseball coach; John Nelson, assistant football coach; Bob Wright, head track coach, and Bill Butkovich, former Illi­ ni grid star who is now principal at Tuscola High School. Local sports celebrities attending were John Thiel, direc- r of athletics at Galesburg High School; Bob Johns, football coach at GHS, and Mike Owens, new basketball coach at GHS. It was the third year in a row for Illini Day at Soangetaha. Once again Jim. Oberwortman was chairman of the project. Stoerzbach PGA Junior Champion CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa Galesburg's Dan Stoerzbach won this year's Iowa-Western Illinois PGA Junior Championship by firing a 2-over par 74 over the short but hilly Ellis Park golf course here Monday. Stoerzbach, who won the 14-15 honors it year old division, for the entire tournament also as the best score turned in by the 16-17 group was 77.

When other players talk with little if any prompting, "fto" will sit patiently and wait for a question. Where 9 Not did you school baseball? play high Without any hesitation the Galesburg Pioneer answers, "I played at Henry Scenachwine High School in Henry." Hoscheidt sits still in his chair with his hands folded in his lap waiting for the next question.

Parker Wins Iowa Open Tennis Title 4 CEDAR RAPIDS, lowan-Dave Parker, Galesburg's tennis sen- saition, added another trophy to his collection here Sunday. Secojid-seedad Parker defeated tcp-seeded Hari Burros in two sets, 6-1, 7-6, to win the Iowa Open Termis Tournament. Burrus was going for his third lotwa title in four years, having captured the tournamenft in 1970 and 1971. Last spring Parker, a 1973 graduate of Galesburg High School, won the singles title in the state high' school tennis tournament. He then made his mark on the national scene with a decisive victory in the National Interschoilastic Tennis Tournament held at Durham, N.C. Ranked nationally as one of the top players in his age group, Parker will be attending UCLA this faM. JJurrus, who ait 29 is Parker's elder by 10 years, posed HtUe problem to the Gaieslburg tennis star. Parker won the first set easily and then came from behind to edge Burrus in the second set. The first set was Parker's the fans pelted him with ice cubes, penny candy and plastic cups. Before order could be restored, at least six persons were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. The shower of delbris continued after Carter was back in his comer and when one irate fan climbed to the ring apron to challenge Carter to another bout and Carter tried to comply, someone threw a chair over the ropes into the ring, hitting Carter on the neck.

While at Southern Illinois, Hoscheidt was being groomed to fill in for Ail-American Joe Wallis, who was drafted in the sixth round by the Cubs, in the early spring but was played at third base on the squad's spring Florida trip when the regular player went cold at the plate. During the trip, he batted .333 but when the team got back to Carbondale Jones benched him. "I think Itchy thought my throwing was too erratic, I was just throwing thc ball too hard."
