ATLANTA (AP)—The Saturday Evening Post plans to fight a $3,060,000 judgment awarded former University of Georgia football coach Wallace Butts by a federal jury which decided that the Post had ruined Butts' reputation. It was one of the largest libel judgments ever rendered. Immediately after me jury reported on Tuesday, attorneys for the Curtis Publishing Co. said they will appeal: The jury, composed of 12 men who never played football, heard 11 days of testimony and arguments regarding a March 23 Post story that said Butts gave inside inJEormation on tlie Georgia team ate has been set. After the verdict, Butts told a lews conference: "I feel very lUmble and grateful, particularly o the people who have stood by •ne tliroughout this trial and the days which preceded it." He said he hopes to return to coaching. Butts was a longtime coach at Georgia before being named athletic director in 1961. The magazine article, written jy Frank Graham Jr., said an At- anta insurance salesman, George D . Burnett, overheard a telephone conversation between Butts and Sryant prior to the 1962 game. to Alabama cpach Paul (Bear) Bryant before the 1962 Georgia Alabama game. Alabama woi 35-0. Much of the testimony, es pecially by football coaches players, dealt with intricate foot ball maneuvers and strategy. Butts, who was athletic directo at Georgia at the time of thj game, sued for $10 million. H and Bryant have maintained tlieii innocence of any attempt to rig the game. Tlie jury, alter deliberatin about .eight hours, awarded Butt 560,000 for general damage and $ million for pjiiiitiye purposes. (An AP story Tuesday reported ?3,600, 000. The figure should have beei $3,060,000.) the jury agreed \yiti Butts' contention that there wa malice in publication of the article The Post still faces a $10-mil lion suit filed by Bryant.'
