_J*n9BPAY, APGUST 18, 1988 (ARK.)' COURIER NCAA Fingers 5 More Teams By TOM BRANAGAN CHICAGO fAP) — With the name of mighty Notre Dame added to its disciplinary list, the National Collegiate Athletic Association turned to other investigations today. V A spokesman said five more schools are involved in charges of violating the NCAA's athletic code but that investigations are incomplete. The schools were not named. Notre Dante—along with Michigan State and Arizona State—was reprimanded by the NCAA's 17- man council, a policy-making group, at the close of Its meeting yesterday. Michigan State already had been put on probation by the Big Ten conference because of the activities of-an off-campus "foundation" which allegedly aided athletes. The council said it supported this action. All three schools were cited for permitting campus tryouts of prospective athletes. Neither Notre Dame nor Michigan State received any specific punishment hut Arizona State, at Tempe, was put on two years' probation. Paying: Athletes In addition to permitting tryouts, the Arizona school was charged with permitting pay to athletes. As a further punishment, all its athletes were ruled ineligible for NCAA championship events for the 1053-54 school year. Notre Dame and Ariaona State admitted doing wrong but grumbled about the severity of the NCAA's action. Michigan State, which protested .loudly after the Big Ten's probation was announced reacted mildly to the NCAA pronouncement. Said Ralph Young, athletic director: "We're' hoping that the Big Ten probation will be lifted soon. We are observing all Big Ten and NCAA rules in every way, shape and manner." The Rev. Edmund P. Joyce, CSC, executive vice president of Notre Dame, said Irish coaches had used a "modified type of tryout." He said the university stopped the practice when it learned of it last January and invoked "disciplinary measures" against the coaches. Arizona State's president, Dr. Grady Gammage, said, "We know there were infractions . . . Our house has been put in order." PAGE fflGYEJt Peacock Wants Bantamweight Title Bout Rematch With Gault After Split Decision In Fight Last Night By JACK HAN D BROOKLYN Ifl _ Billy Peacock, a 21-year-old lad from Los Angeles with only 18 pro fights under his belt, today was thinking In terms of the world's bantamweight crown after winning the North American championship from Henry (Pappy) Gault of Spartanburg, S. C. First on Peacock's future calendar, however, Is a return bout with Gault, whom he defeated last night on a 12-round split decision at Brooklyn's Eastern Parkway Arena. The rematch may be set back to mid-October so that Peacock can have his bad tonsils taken out. The new North American champion also '.vants to even matters with Baby Face Gutie Gutierrez who took away his California bantam crown last month. "We should be ready for Jimmy Carruthers, the world titleholder, by the end of the year," said Joe Stanley, Peacock's manager. Carruthers Is the undisputed world's champion in the 118-pound class. The National Boxing Association set up the North American championship to stimulate interest in the division. Gault won the crown from Pernand Gagnon at Quebec Oct. 27, 1952. The closest thing to a knockdown came when Gault slipped in the third round. Referee Petey Scalzo called in SHORT END—Pompeyo Da- valillo wins who's the shortest contest with Phil Hizzuto. At -ive feet four and a half inches, Uie Senators' new Venezuelan shortstop is the fraction shorter than his great Yankee counterpart. Measuring with a bat. Mickey Vernon is judge. (NEA) -4-1 for Peacock and Judge Art Mdalaw saw it 1-5 for Peacock, udge Charley Shorten had Gault le winner, 6-5-1. The Associated 'ress scorecard favored peacock -5-1. Field and Stream— Dogs Like to Play Games By JOE STETSON Dor Editor John Smith was not the first on» to be laced with the frustrating Impasse in training a oVuj to retrieve. There are many who can sympathize with him as they know what it means to have a dog mark a bird, make a good pickup and return to within ten or fifteen feet and then get reluctant and drop the bird. John, like so many others, had tried nil kinds of coaxing. "Come on Ginger girl — atta baby — bring It here, little girl." But the trend of this one-sided conversation usually wound up, "Let's have it baby —come on little girl _ fetch it here you stupid knockle-head — whatSs the matter with you anyway!" A sharp rise in bloodpressure generally followed. "And you tell me to turn around and walk away," said John. "What's the reason for it? You say that there's a reason for everything we do in dog handling." Let's consider a simple analogy. Supposing you were throwing a ball for your three-year-old boy. You toss the ball across the lawn and he toddles after it and brings it back waiting for another toss. If he wants a little extra attention, he can get it very easily by playing cute and hard-to-get when he brings the ball backj If you try to get it, he'll come Just so far and then withdraw. This becomes a game with him enjoying i»our competition for the ball. On ,he other hand, if you say, "Okay! If you don't want to play, I'll go read the paper," and then turn away as if to do so, he'll come nm- ilng. When your dog plays hard-to-get, iust turn awa yas he approaches and he'll follow to complete the retrieve. Watch professional handlers at ipaniel trials. You can spot the re- uctnnt dogs by observing when the handlers turn and walk a few steps back as the dog approaches. At trials, I would suspect any dog when the handler uses this tactic. The only way to make sure would be to tel Ithe handler beforehand that he must remain in one spot to accept his retrieves. Meanwhile, what's effective for the professionals should work for you.
