C. Aderhold, University of Georgia president, and three athletic board members have testified ;hey believe former coach Wally Butts has a bad character. Several more athletic board Members were prepared to take the stand today in the federal court trial of Butts' $10-miUloii ilbel suit against the Curtis Pub- ishitig Co. The suit resulted from football- ix charges against Butts by the Saturday Evening Post, published by Curtis. Aderhold said Wednesday that Jutts" business interests had in- erfered with his duties as athletic director prior to his resignation Feb. 28. The stocky Butts, who spent 21 years as head coach at Georgia and then 2& years as just athletic director, resigned the day after he was confronted with charges that he fed data on his teatti to Coach Paul (Bear) Bryant of Alabama. In his testimony, Butts said he resigned to avoid embarassment to the University. When asked his opinion of Butts' character, Aderhold said: "I would say it's bad." The 58-year-old Butts sat impassively. Aderhold started to comment further but was stopped by Judge Lewis R. Morgan who ruled lhat no specifics could be discussed. Similar testimony about Butts' character was given by Prof. Harold Heckman, Prof. R. H. Driftmeyer and alumnus William T, Bradshaw, all athletic board members. Heckman and Driftmeyer said flatly they would not believe Butts under oath. When the question was put to Bradshaw, he replied: "1 don't believe so." Are Dodgers Going To Pull Fade Act?
