(UP)-Danny Gardella. former New York Cilant who Jvunped to tile Mexlcr.a League, said loday that Basebp.3! Commissioner A. B. Chandler and i major league club-owners were giving Ihe United Slates a "black eye" before the Mexican sports public. "U H. baseball has a chance lo let ll-s players come to Mexico and show Ihc Mexicans what our COMII- Iry is like LhrouKh a clean sjK>rt," the New York-born Gardella said. "Hut what do the money-bags up Ihcre do? A handful of birds like Branch Klckey, president of the Brooklyn Dodgers, are being unfair lo America »s a whole because they arc kicking their neighbors In Ihe face." i Ciavdella was critical of Ohancl- I ler's action In barling players from i the major leugues for five years it I they play In Mexico. "They've got a chance to teach other people democracy through America's own game." he said. "But they fail to co-operate." | The fiery little Italian, who hit lard but fielded uncertainly with the Giants, cnlhusiasllcally sni>- torled the Idea ol a union lor base>all players. "The players In the Slates are nuts to le.1 themselves be kicket around by self-interested club owners," he said. "Just judging by my own exj^erl cnce wilh the Giants. 1 think union could make for belter ball fo everybody. Eddie Brannlck, Glan secretary, and Mel OH. Giunt mai ager, not to mention n number i other genllc-nicn, are ruining big league baseball in my csliiiialion." Gardella said Ihat all players are vilally inleresled iti trades affecting Ihem, and objccl to lieing sent ''to ''jiist any other club" without regard to the players' feelings. He said also that players had no chance lo yd more money Lhan Iheir con- Iracls call for when traded by owners. "Flavors should get a part of what thoy arc Iradcd or sold for, re- th'ernenl bonefits, sickness compensation and Ihe right of collective bargaining." he said. "And they should demand a union lo eliminalc racial discrimination in Ihe big It ai'.ues." "A lot of colored boys In the big leagues aren't treated exaclly right and soino of ,lhc players from the South make a fuss they should lie ashamed of." He hinted that missionary work by players now in the Mexican League may cause further changes in major league personnel. "The Mexican League pays gooc 1 wages, furnishes fine apartments and treats the players like ]>er5on- al guests," he said. "U.
