Old 'Maxim By MURRAY OLDERMAN Sport* Editor Newspaper Enterprise Association Traveler on the run: picks up a cab for the airport in front of the Las Vegas' Stardust at 6:30 a.m. Driver grabs the suitcase, looks familiar. He should be. His name is Giuseppe Antonio Berardinelli. But when he was the light heavyweight champion of the world, just 15 years ago, he was known a* Joey Maxim. "Got the name," he said, "because I could punch like a machine gun. Now I'm a slow repeater." ... Up in Reno, you get the other extreme. Bill Harrah picks up the visitor in a chauffeured Rolls Royce limousine — the same kind you get for shooting > hole-in-one at his invitational golf tournament.

And why not? Dick's on a five-year contract Except for end coach Ed Hughes, who's his brother-in- law Nolan's had no professional connection with any of the Sstant coaches he hired. He figures the.Forty-Niners are in fi,f rnWrile of the NFL, personnel-wise. He'll work them. In a rS Jua^ba k^^l for John Brodie, Georg. Hk. «Dd Steve Sorrier, Dick drove them five hours a day to absorb his system and football philosophy. ... . , Gene Mauch explains the perils of travel as they relate to baseball: "You come to California and what do yon see? Hay Sadecki, Mike McCormick, Gaylord Perry and Juan Manchal on successive days in San Francisco. Then Claude Osteen, Don DrysdaTerd BiU Singer in Los Angel., And there's no place to get fat even when you get back East. Take the Mets, and you see Jerry Koosman, Nolan Ryan and Tom Seaver." . . .
