White Accused Of Mischief After Enshrinement Into Hall

Randy White, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame since Saturday, said Thursday he hopes some people in Ohio understand that he, his brother and friends were merely in a mood to celebrate when a door to a residential suite was kicked open. A man and his wife said the former Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle kicked in the door of the suite in which they were staying.

Jason Martin alleged that White was drunk Saturday night and kicked at the door, apparently thinking that Martin's residence was the one at which he was staying. White came to Canton, Ohio, for his induction into the pro football shrine. Martin said the door flew open. Martin's wife filed a statement with police saying White was being helped across the parking lot "as he was too intoxicated to walk on his own. According to the report, the men were confused as to which room they were looking for and when they finally found it, White said, `Why don't you try this one' and kicked our door open.' "

White, contacted by telephone, admitted there was some damage to a door. "Some of my friends were celebrating and someone kicked the door and the door jam came open," White said. "But it wasn't me. I don't hardly even remember the door getting kicked."

White admitted to drinking with friends, but not to being intoxicated. "That's her judgment call," he said. "We were just celebrating. Is it against the law to have a couple of drinks?"

There also was damage to the suite where White stayed. Fred Smith, co-owner of the Parke Resident Suites, said he is having repairs done - fixing several holes in a kitchen wall and working on a damaged bedroom door. Smith says he plans to send the repair bill, estimated at several hundred dollars, to the Hall of Fame. Don Smith, Hall of Fame vice president, said the bill would be forwarded to White.

King had eight birdies without a bogey. She birdied each of the four par-5 holes. A victory in the 72-hole tournament would put King into the Hall of Fame as a qualifer with 30 victories, including two of the four major tourneys. Forest Hills Course Closed

The golf course at Forest Hills Country Club, where the LPGA's GHP Heartland Classic is scheduled to be played in seven weeks, has been closed in an effort to save dried-out greens. The greens weren't up to Ladies Professional Golf Association standards. They have dried out, turned brown and in some spots are bare. The severity of the problem had been downplayed by Classic officials. …
