Georgia Coach Say Someone Fed Info s ATLANTA (API-Georgia football Coach Johnny prifflth has estified he believed last tail' that someone fed information on his earn to rival Alabama before their 1962 game. Griffith's testimony came Tuesday in the federal court trial of a $10-milllon libel suit by Wally Butts, former Georgia athletic di rector, against Curtis Publishing Co, The suit resulted from an article in the Saturday Evening Post, published by Curtis, which charged the Alabama-Georgia game was rigged by Butts and Coach Paul (Bear) Bryant of Alabama. Griffith, followed to the stand today by two of his assistant coaches, read notes which an insurance salesman said he took while listening to a Butts-Bryant telephone conversation nine days before the game. The salesman, George P. Burnett, said he was accidentally cut into fhe call and heard Butts giv iftg data to Bryant. Griffith' testified the trotes don talhed the only two playing forma tiona Used by his squad hi t h Alabama game. Griffith said it was his opinio that tile information would be helpful If an opponent knew n other formations would be usec On cross-examination Griffith said, however, the formation themselves were nothing new a were employed by Alabama a n nearly or all other Southeastern Conference teams. The coach said he believec somebody had been giving infor malion to Alabama but that h never said "we had no Idea i was Wally Butts"—as he wa quoted by the Post. Griffith said Butts gave him his first Georgia coaching job am helped him financially. He saic Butts loaned him money a n c signed bank notes for him. Grif fith said he still owed Butts $350 Wilhelm's Dizzy Pitch Gets Him Into Trouble B.v MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer Granite City (3) Player AB R H Oillard Bain Borchers Reiily Champion Scarborough 3 Bakaw Chappel Lamb 1 1 1 1 2 1 4 0 3 0 200 1 0 300 3 0 1 Alt-Wood (0) Player AB R H 3 0 3 0 2 0 3 0 2 0 2 0 300 Wintjen Metz West Davis Simpson Fin cher Noll Cunningham Bruckert Boverie Garner wa: 000 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Totals 28 3 6 Totals 21 0 1 Inning: 1234567 RHE Granite City 0000210—3 6 0 Alt-Wood 0000000—0 1 2 PROBABLE PITCHERS American League New York — (Downing 7-3) at Washington (Ridzik 2-2) (N) Chicago — (Pizarro 13-5) at Kansas City (Wickersham 8-9) (N) Cleveland — (Grant 7-10) at Baltimore (Pappas 1-6) (N) Boston — (Nichols 1-2) at Detroit (Bunning 8-11) .

The score was tied 3-3 going into the bottom of the ninth when Wilhelm let go with a flutterbal that flew past batter Gino Cimol: for a third strike and flicked pasl Camilo Carreon and his oversized catcher's mitt for what scored a passed ball. Cimoli wound up on first -and Wilhelm wound up under a shower after another wild pitch. Cimoli eventually scored the decisive run on a single by George Alusik off Jim Brosnan and promptly told the official scorer the pitch on which he struck out was four feet wide of the plate. The passed ball ruling was changed and Wilhelm was credited with another wild pitch to go along with his 2-7 record and 2.90 earned run average. And that is part of the reason the White Sox irail front-running New York by eight games. The Yankees got a brilliant pitching performance from Stan Williams, who hurled a 1-0, one-hit shoutout over Washington after the Senators won the opener of a twi- nighter 8-5 on a four-homer barrage against Whitey Ford. Third-place Baltimore, 8Vi back, j whipped Cleveland 6-4 as Jim I Gentile drove in four runs with a pair of homers. Detroit rookie George Smith collected a triple and two doubles in a 10-1 wallop- downed the Los Angeles Angels 5-1. Wilhelm got his chance for a victory when a two-run homer by Charlie Maxwell tied the score in the top of the ninth. Chuck Cottier rapped two horn- ers, including a three-run shot in the sixth that snapped a 5-5 tie and Don I/>ck and Chuck Hinton one each for the Senators in the first game as : Ford lost his third straight in quest of victory No. 17 In the nightcap, Williams allowed only a double by Don Bias ingame in the third, striking oui 11, walking one -and retiring the last 19 in order. The Yankees scored in the eighth on Tony Kubek's triple off Benny Daniels and a sacrifice bly by Bobby Richardson.

Then, before making another pitch to the plate, Walker made eight unsuccessful attempts to pick Snyder off base. On'the next pitch to Saverine, Snyder stole second. 14th.

AlexHannum Will Coach Wilt the Stilt SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The main task facing Alex Hannum f new coach of the San Francisco iVarrlors, Is moulding four other basketball players with Wilt Chamberlain into a winning team. Hannum, named Tuesday to succeed Bob Ferrick, has the Na- ional Basketball Association's highest scorer in Chamberlain but Wilt's individual records didn't do the Warriors much good en route 0 their dismal fourth place finish .n the five-team Western Division ast season. "I think Wilt has the greatest x>lentlal in the game," said the ormer boss of ,the Syracuse Na- ionals. "But he hasn't even skimmed the top.'' "I .plan to do something about t by playing him differently but irst vve'll make sure of his approach to what makes a winning earn." Hannum, once'a star at Southern California, quit the Syracuse ob when the franchise moved to Philadelphia—the city the Warriors quit in favor of San Francisco 1 year ago. The Warriors contacted Hannum Wednesday and decided to hire him. Sunday. • The move was not unexpected. Ferrick will become general man-' ager — a promotion which was guaranteed in the three-year contract he signed last year after leaving the University of Santa Clara.
