Koufax Sends Pact Back Unsigned By ALEX KAHN Sonny JJston, left, and Flojd PiMersou Bout Seems Assured PHILADELPHIA (DPI) -Sonny For the first time in his major league career, pitcher Sandy Koufax has returned unsigned a contract offered to him by the Los Angeles Dodgers but he insisted today he was not a-holdout. The slim, darkhaired left- hander is confident that he and Dodgers General Manager E. J. (Buzzie) Bavasi will work out an agreement both will find satisfactory. But Koufax has been too busy to drop in on Bavasi and discuss why he feels he deserves more money than the Dodgers offered him. The reason he hasn't found time is that he is working in a filmed television show. "I'm in a- sequence of the 'Dennis the Menace' show," Koufax said. "The part isn't difficult because I'm playing myself and if has to do with baseball." But Koufax says as soon as he finishes work in "Dennis and the Dodgers," he intends calling on- Bavasi to discuss; his 1962 contract.
