Palm Beach Post-Times, Sunday, December 5, 1976 E7 From El Warters That's the picture of Llwyd Ecclestone Jr., as painted by some people who've seen him in action. Certainly he's indicated he's a man of action in a project that will run into untold millions by the time it's completed. He's calling the shots. That's clear. The PGA has certain veto rights, but it's Ecclestone's money and reputation that's on the line, and money talks the loudest in an undertaking of this magnitude. Dickinson thought it was a good idea. "It would have been good public relations," he said. "And the PGA would have benefited because we all would have busted our backs to give the PGA the best on what we worked with. I know I would. I'd loved to have gotten the job on the least ideal property." But, say Ecclestone followers, this would have not fit into the developer's modus operandi. , Ecclestone is a total environment developer who examines every detail of a project before charting a path. He's surrounded by experts in planning, building, finance, taxes and law. But they work as team units and one architectural firm would work, into his operation better than two or three. This time Ecclestone made the decision which was approved by the world's largest sports group. And he didn't waste any time, either. From the day he was named to succeed Voight to the day of Eccle-stone's first official announcement was just slightly more than a week. Choosing a couple of layout artists and getting PGA approval in fewer than 10 days was startling in comparison to the previous 19 months of nonprogress. Obviously, the dynamic, 36-year-old developer means business. He isnt pussy-footin' around. And he says he will announce where the 625-acre complex is going to be built soon. When Ecclestone says soon, he means soon, if his decision on the Fazios is any indication. Ecclestone picked the Fazios while dozens of designers with im- pressive credentials would have welcomed the chance for a PGA endorsement. And observers who have seen him operate say the no-nonsense businessman of Welch extraction does not make snap decisions. With an incredible record of success with his multi-million dollar endeavors, Ecclestone didn't walk into the job blind. He had some three months to pore over every detail of the projected headquarters. Presumably, he was privy to past architectural reports, including the work of the Fazios since April, 1975. His team of planners have worked previously with the Fazios who have impressed them with the architects' thoroughness, cooperation, execution under deadline and reputation throughout the country. There had been talk in some quarters that three architects might be considered for the three courses. 7i . y I - , ... at y I -t v-i 4 y J V " N J fr-A --i?s 11 I of' U ? i "VY GOING ft GROWING Join Woolco, J.

I Other Sizes Low Priced Too! From Post Wlr Sorvlcoi Pitcher Mickey Lolich of the New York Mets said that he has not decided to retire from baseball. "When the time comes for retirement, I'll make the decision, not some sportswriter in New York," Lolich said in a telephone interview with the Portland Oregonian newspaper. Lolich grew up in Portland. 'ideally I'd like to pitch in Detroit," he said. "But I haven't closed the door on baseball. Reporters have blown the thing out of proportion. I'm in the process of trying to find employment, but I never said I was going to retire." "Sure, I'd like to play in Detroit but I may go back to the Mets and if I do the stuff you hear will make me look bad," Lolich said. Lolich's remarks were in response to an Associated Press story quoting Met general manager Joe McDonald as saying he felt, because of Lolich's latest remarks, that he was retiring. "The problem is strictly domestic, he likes the idea of living in the town where he plays," McDonald said. "I guess you could call it domestic," Lolich said from his home in Grand Rapids, Mich. "I grew up in a small city Portland close to the woods on the northwest side and Michigan is a lot like that. Living in New York with all those people is a new environment and I didn't enjoy it." New York, Lolich said, "is all right for guys who want publicity and limelight I don't need it. I've had success and I've had stardom, but basically I am an easy going guy, not flamboyant, not a publicity seeker. New York didn't do anything for me. I was there a year and I didn't do any of those commercials or endorsements." Lolich, who pitched for the Detroit Tigers for 13 seasons before being traded to the Mets prior to last season, had had an 8-13 record last year with a 3.22 earned run average. More Baseball Texas Rangers' lefthander Mike Keklch was released from the hospital following removal of his spleen and was pronounced fit to pitch in the Venezuelan Winter League again in five weeks. Football Johnny Majors came marching home to Tennessee aware of the fact his alma mater expects him to turn a slipping football program around. "I'm not coming here with my eyes closed. I know you expect a lot from a football coach down here. I'm no miracle worker, but if I didn't think I couldn't do better, I wouldn't be here," Majors said. Auto Racing Kitty O'Nell, a 28-year-old deaf stunt woman, became the fastest woman driver in the world, chalking up an official average time of 321.425 m.p.h. on the dry bed of an ancient lake in southwestern Oregon. "Let's go faster," she said after also driving a three-wheeled, hydrogen peroxide-fueled Smi-motivator to 400 m.p.h. later in the day, trying to break the world land speed record of 631 m.p.h. Basketball Trade rumors involving Buffalo Braves' forward-center Bob McAdoo are circulating again. The latest has him going to the New York Knicks for a player and cash. Previously, McAdoo was rumored to be headed for Seattle in exchange for center Tom Burleson and cash. Tennis Martina Navrattlova grabbed a straight-set victory to reach the finals without ever losing a set in the Women's International Tennis Tournament. Betty Stove required three sets to eliminate the last Australian player. Navratilova defeated Dianne Fromholtz 7-6, 6-3, while Stove edged Kerry Reid 7-6, 2-6, 6-3 in the singles semifinals. They teamed up to defeat Evonne Goolagong and Helen Gourlay, 6-2, 6-1 in the doubles semifinals . . . Indiana's Amritraj Brothers teamed up in doubles to demolish Japan in straight sets and give India a 2-1 lead in the East Zone Davis Cup .
