NEWMANAGERS.STADIUMS READY FOR '66 SEASON BX MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer The baseball season rolls into high gear today with six new managers, one new ball park and one new attitude on display — if the Boston Red Sox get to the ball park on time. Actually everything should go off like clock work. The six new managers are ready, Atlanta is ready and the Hed Sox have synchronized their watches. The new timetable for the Red , NEW YEAR - Big Frank ^Howard of Washington knocks some dirt from his spikes as ; he gets ready for a new assault on American League pitchers. niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniinnnnninniiuiiiiiuiuiuiniiniiiiiiiiiiiiii' \ Hockey " ; National Hockey Playoffs : Semifinals • Monday Results •' No games scheduled ; Today's Games • Montreal at Toronto, Montreal feads best-of-7 series, 2-0 ; Chicago at Detroit, best-of-7 series tied 1-1 Sox became mandatory Monday when outfielder Carl Yastrzem- ski was elected the first playing captain in team history and admitted "there have been times during the past five years that I've been ashamed of wear a Red Sox uniform." Yastrzemski took immediate steps to institute a new attitude, announcing a ban on card-playing in the clubhouse before games, and ordering all players to report on time — one of the things they occasionally failed to do last year. "If we didn't hav« the talent I wouldn't say anything," Yas- trzemski pointed out. "But we have too much talent to waste. * * * "I'm sick of being a laughing stock like the New York Mete." The Mets were no laughing stock Monday - they were rained out. That left only the Presidential Opener at Washington, D.C., on the schedule and the Senators and the Democrats came out on the short end of the score as Cleveland recorded a 5-2 victory. The American League has lour day games scheduled — Judge to Rule on Braves Today MILWAUKEE (AP) - Circuit Judge Elmer W. Roller labored into the early hours today, trying to complete his decision in Wisconsin's antitrust suit against baseball with the Braves' Atlanta debut only hours away. The white-haired judge, who is 64, would not pinpoint a time for the announcement of the verdict. "I'm sure it will be today," Roller said, "but as for what time I'm not making any pre-i court dictions." The Braves, who left Milwaukee after 13 seasons here, are scheduled to open at 8:05 p.m., EST, !n Atlanta against the Pittsburgh Pirates. j * * * Wisconsin has asked the judge | to order the Braves to return I here this season if the National' League failed to agree to an expansion team, for. Milwaukee by today. State attorneys have conceded any order by Roller's could not be enforced un- less it came before the Braves' first game in Atlanta. Early today the judge was still working to complete the draft of his lengthy, complex ruling. A court aide said, "We've got more than 100 pages now." Judge Roller planned to finish the decision before dawn if possible, but it might be hours later before editing was completed and the decision could be copied and bound for distribution to attorneys and the press. City's Boxers Decked By Eviction Notice Brother, can you spare a' building? Blythevflle's amateur boxers were looking for a new home today after being evicted from Legion Arena by Dud Cason Post 24. Dr. John Elliott, in charge of the program, was told last night by the Post's athletic committee that the building will be unavailable for the youngsters "for the time being." To which Dr. Elliott replied: "There's no time being as far as I'm concerned. If they put us out now, I'm through with 'em." The Legionnaires have permitted the boxers to use the facilities six nights a week for •workouts and Saturday nights for public shows when out-of- town competition was available. Ironically, the best card of the season was presented Saturday night and the best money crowd appeared. Th« gate amounted to about $250. The Legionnaires stated ft costs too much money to light and heat the building every night, especially since the Legion now is turning its attention to the baseball program. A campaign is about to begin to raise funds for the Legion team. The Dud Cason club was host for the state tournament last year and defeated all comers for the state championship. "If anyone has a span building or place for as to work out, we'd appreciate hearing about it," Dr. Elliott laid. That the boys need such a place was evident one night last week when about 175 youngsters were present. "H they weren't b here," a sheriff's deputy observed, "they'd be out roaming the streets some place. This is a good thing. It keeps the boys out of trouble." * * * Dr. Elliott pointed out that he has spent about $2,500 of his own money the last three years to keep the program alive. Approximately $700 was spent to fix an equipment room at the Arena and another $1,500 for equipment. It's just about impossible to Schayes Speaks Bravely of 76'ers Chances By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Coach Dolph Schayes still feels his Philadelphia 76ers will "come out roaring" as they try to fight off elimination in the National Basketball Association Eastern playoff tonight against the Boston Celtics. "Time is running out," Schayes said Monday as he watched the 76ers in an hour- long practice. "But the fact that we're one defeat away doesn't mean anything. .^This is the type of club that doesn't get down because of a heart-breaking loss." Philadelphia, trailing Boston 3-1 in the best-of-seven series, must win its next three games to advance to the final round. A Boston victory will close out the Eastern series. * * * There's probably a good reason for Schayes' outlook for this game. Boston hasn't win on the Convention Hall floor since December, 1964, Including five games this season. Rookie Rick Barry Is All Star NEW YORK (AP). — San Francisco's Rick Barry, Bookie of the Year In the National Basketball Association, has moved into exclusive company. He's been chosen along with Wilt Chamberlain of Philadelphia, Jerry Lucas and Oscar Robertson of Cincinnati and Jerry West of Los Angeles on the NBA All Star team. The voting, conducted among sports writers and broadcasters in the nine league cities, produced no unanimous choices. Robertson came closest, missing on only one of the 86 ballots cast. * * * Named to the second team were Bill Russell, John Havlicek and Sam Jones, all of Boston, and Philadelphia's Hal Greer and Baltimore's Gus Johnson.

Nothing in our material world can come from nowhere or go nowhere, nor can it be free: everything in our economic life has a source, a destination, and a cost that must be paid. 2. Government is never a source of goods. Everything produced is produced by the people, and everything that government gives to the people, it must first take from the people. 8 The only valuable money that government has to spend is that money taxed or borrowed out of the people's earnings. When government decides to spend more than it has thus received, that extra unearned money is created out of thin air, through the banks, and, when spent, takes on value only by reducing the value of all money, savings, and insurance. 4 In our modern exchange economy, all payroll and ernplojTnent come from customers, and the only worthwhile .job security is customer security; if there are ho customers, there can be no payroll and no jobs. 5. Customer security can be achieved by the worker only when h« cooperates with management in doing the things that win and hold customers. Job security, therefore, is a partnership problem that can be solved only in a spirit of understanding and cooperation. 6. Because wages are the principal cost of everything, widespread wage increases, without corresponding increase in production, simply increase the coat of everybody's living. 7. The greatest good for the number means, in its material sense, the greatest goods for the greatest number which, in turn, means the greatest productivity per worker. 8 All productivity is based on three factors: 1) natural resources, whose form, place, and condition are changed by the expenditure of 2) human energy (both muscular and mental), with the aid of 3) tools. 9. Tools are the only one of these three factors that man can increase without limit, and tools come into being in a free society only when there is a reward for the temporary self-denial that people must practice in order to channel part of their earnings away from purchases that produce immediate comfort and pleasure, and into new tools of production. Proper payment for the use of tools it «ssential to their creation. 10. The productivity of th tools—that is, the efficiency of the human energy applied in connection with their use—has always been highest in & competitive society in which the economc decisions are made by millions of progress-seeking individuals, rather than in a state-planned society in which those decisions are made by a handful of all-powerful people, regardless of how well-meaning, unselfish, sincere and intelligent those peo- pl«m»yb*.
