Catfish Blanks O's Tlmei Herald, Carrel), la. Tuetday. April 13, 1976 By The Associated Press Television's Six Million Dollar Man met baseball's Three Million Dollar Man Monday night and the Baltimore Orioles couldn't get their two cents in. "Lee Majors waved to me before the game," Catfish Hunter said. "I wanted to trade him and get a new arm." Don't try to run that one by the Orioles. They couldn't do much with Hunter's old arm, managing only three singles as the New York Yankees made off with a 3-0 triumph to kick off ABC-TV's 16-week Monday night television package. Peace Reigns in NBA NEW YORK (API-Peace reigned in the National Basketball Association today for the first time in six years following the finalization of a four-year collective bargaining agreement. The agreement, announced Monday by NBA Commissioner Larry O'Brien and Larry Fleisher, general counsel for the players association, at a joint news conference added generously to the players' already lucrative financial benefits. It was the first time since 1970, when Oscar Robertson and several other players filed a class action suit against the NBA, that peace prevailed in the league. The Robertson suit was settled out of court two months ago in Philadelphia during the All-Star break. It only needs to be approved by Judge Robert L. Carter of Southern District Court in New York to be finalized. The judge is expected to be presented the papers for signing within the next week. M e_a n w h i 1 e. O'Brien disclosed that Judge Carter had suggested the NBA and American Basketball Association explore the possibility of resolving out of court another lawsuit — the In the only other major league games, the Texas Rangers trimmed the Oakland A's 5-1 behind veteran Nelson Briles and the Houston Astros blanked the San Francisco Giants 5-0 as J.R: Richard, Larry Hardy and Ken Forsch scattered nine hits. Cleveland at Boston in the American League was called off by cold weather and San Diego at Los Angeles in the National was rained out with 56.000 on hand. It was the Dodgers' first home rainout since 1967 and only their second since moving to Los Angeles in 1958. In frigid 43-degree Baltimore. Majors — an ABA's antitrust action against the NBA. The suit is'scheduled to be tried in Judge Carter's court on June 1, but both sides have asked for extensions — the ABA until June 15 and the NBA until September. The suit charges the NBA with engaging in monopolistic practices designed to drive competitors out of business. Following Judge Carter's request for settling the ABA suit out of court, O'Brien said. "I would anticipate hearing from ABA Commissioner (Dave) DeBusschere in that context. If anything is forthcoming in that area, I would relay it to the owners of the NBA. The judge has recommended that we talk, and both sides want to comply with .the judge's wishes. The potential for communication should be explored." Should that suit be settled, there still would be another legal barrier blocking the two leagues from accomplishing a long-discussed merger. That would be a-suit by the ABA Players Association filed against the NBA. its member teams, the ABA and two of its ' teams, the New York Nets and Denver Nuggets. The suit challenges the draft and other related practices that affect conditions of ABA players. The ABA often has expressed a desire to merge with the more established NBA, but the NBA has been opposed. ABC-TV star, natch — threw out the first ball before Hunter took over and it's "doubtful if the pa'ttycake Orio'les, with Reggie Jackson back home in Arizona and Lee May in the clubhouse nursing a first-inning groin injury, could have hit that one. either. "Same old Catfish," moaned Brooks Robinson, one of the many Orioles who went hitless. "He's always around the plate and you get awful anxious up there." "He's unbelievable," said Bobby Grich, hitless in three trips. "He's worth every penny he is getting." The Yanks staked Hunter to a first-inning run on Lou Pi- niclla's run-producing double off Ross Grimsley and added two unearned runs on Thurman Munson's bases-loaded single in the fifth. Tony Muser collected two of the hits Hunter allowed. Rangers 5, A's 1 Briles, pitching in a light rain, checked hard-hitting Oakland on four hits and was backed by Jeff Burroughs' three-run homer off Paul Mitchell and Tom Grieve's solo shot off Mike Norris. Bril,es, a 32-year-old right- hander acquired from Kansas City during the off-season, blanked the A's until the sev- enth when Don Baylor tripled and scored on Sal Bando's grounder. Astros 5, Giants 0 The Giants wasted numerous opportunities in the early going. Richard allowed five hits and walked seven in 5 1-3 innings while Hardy was touched for four hits in 1 1-3 innings. •'It wasn't a real outstanding performance," Manager Bill Virdon said of the hard-throwing but erratic 6-foot-8 Richard, "but what I liked most was he came back after he was in trouble. I think his control problems are physical. His rhythm is bad and he still overthrows, but he's working it out."

But my record would indicate a high chance of doing well." That's how Janet Guthrie. the first woman ever named to drive a car in the Indianapolis 500. responds to questions about her entry into the rich, fast apd dangerous world of championship racing.

And the U.S. Auto Club today considered her application for a competitin license that would allow her to race at Trenton later this month and then at Indianapolis on May 30. "The women's movement created the climate that made this possible," Miss Guthrie said. "I'm not a feminist, but the feminists have done something to change people's ideas." . Miss Guthrie. who at 5-feet-9 is taller than many male drivers, said she enjoys being a woman — off the track. "I don't identify as a woman driver; I identify as a driver. If 1 qualify. I will feel I've done well," the tall, slender brunette said. Miss Guthrie, 38, has 13 years of sports car experience in more than 120 races. She has held a Sports Car Club of America top grade competition license since 1964. Her credentials also include a class championship in the 12- hour endurance race at Sebring in 1970 and the 1973 North Atlantic Road Racing Championship.
