New Information Could Reopen Rice Investigation HOUSTON (AP) -- Southwest Conference President J. Neils Thompson of Ihe University of Texas at Austin says new infor- nation could reopen the eaguc's investigation of Rice University's football program. Thompson's comment came 'riday after author Giles 'ippette broke his silence on lis controversial book, Saturday's Children, in which he said armor Owl linebacker Rodrigo James was paid $100 per week vhile playing at Rice. Tippette's book, written a f t e r ollowing the Mice, football team hrotigli the 1971 season, led lo m SWC investigation but Ihe SWC said early (his year il ound no wrong-doing at Rice. "I think we'd want · t o ' l o n k at his Tippette's allegations' and s t a t e m e n t s and I think I would isk the comimltee responsible or this investigation to give it f u r t h e r consideration," Thompson said. ' ' T h a t doesn't mear necessarily t h a t we would reopen it." Thompson said. "II here is new information however, there is nothing to prevent us from looking al it again." Tippette m a i n t a i n e d silence throughout the SWC's investiga- ion, "I'm a writer not a stoolie for the SWC." he said. I don't I h i n k it's my duty to expose :hese deeds. "I don't r e a l l y care if a college player is being paid or not. But then they got inlo something that is important lo me. They challenged my into grity as a writer. It cost me about six weeks of my lime and several Ihousand dollars to defend myself." Tippelte said he probably would testify if the SWC re opened ils investigation. A f t e r the book was published Barnes, now with the Dallas Cowboys, filed a SM.OflO libe suit. Barnes' allorneys dropped the suit Wednesday. While Tippetle said he may file a counter-suit, Barnes con tinned to deny any wrong-doing while al Rice. ":Te (Tippetle) had the ppor t u n i t y since last October anc h a s n ' t proven anything,' Barnei said. "I didn't receiv money to play football. I 1 aying he's a liar and be can irove anything. p Tippette said he wasn't, "re; hrilled with the way this who! hing tu.rned out." Tippette said he and his a orncy Lavern Harris of Ker t :ille spent a lot of time pr t a r i n g their defense. "Wo can prove cverylhin hat was said in the book Tippette said. "So if anybof else wants to take us on, we': ready.-' Tippette said he bad n made a f i n a l decision co cerning a counter-suit, might he more t r o u b l e an offoririlian I'd want to spend Tippette said. "I'm serious considering il .just lo give Barnes a little more troub than he'd like."
