Baseball's Winter Meeting Lost Free-Wheeling Spirit .LOS ANGELES (UPI) — Baseball's winter meetings, traditionally an exercise in feverish "hotel lobby horse- trading," took on an air of caution this week amid the specter -of increased player freedoms, pending court litigations and Congressional pressures. Most of the players predicted to be swapped — Jeff Burroughs, George Scott, George Hendrick and Rico Carty, etc. — did/ indeed, change addresses. But unlike the free-wheeling' spirit of previous midwinter trade sessions, each deal was tempered by the new con- 'ditions regarding player contracts. '"I'd like to make a deal for ..your 'player x,' but I don't .know if I can sign him"' -seemed to be the prevailing mood among the once swap- happy general managers, who , completed 14 deals involving 40 players. - For example, the Boston Red Sox executed a three- player trade to re-acquire Scott from the Milwaukee Brewers and then nearly ;vqided the deal when the •moody first baseman demanded a five-year contract. Atlanta Braves' owner Ted Turner, who seemed to have 'enough trouble with yet another upcoming reprimand over the manner in which he signed. free agent Gary Matthews, expressed concern that his deal for Burroughs With the Texas Rangers was not completed without some trepidation. "Burroughs was very up? set," Turner said, "but I think he'll be happy in Atlanta. I only wish I could have talked with him first before we made this deal but that, as you and I know, would be tampering. Isn't that something though? In any other business you at least can have the privilege of talking to a guy before, you hire him." The four-player deal between the Pittsburgh Pirates and Chicago White Sox also may jiave been dictated by contract considerations since the principals—outfielder Richie Zisk and pitcher Rich Gossage—are handled by Jerry Kapstein, the agent who- recently pedaled ' 11 free agents to new clubs for an average of nearly a million dollars apiece. Meanhwile, the Cleveland Indians, who came to the meeting in hopes of adding a much-needed power-hitter to their line-up, instead wound up trading Hendrick — their leading run producer last year — because he refused to sign a contract and was preparing to play out his option. Hendrick, who hit 25 of the Indians' 85 homers in 1976, will likely come to terms with his new employers, the San Diego Padres, because he had demanded a'deal to a California team. One trade that was not made inolved Oakland A's pitcher Vida Blue. Blue, who was originally sold by Charles 0.. Finley to the New York Yankees for $1.5 million last summer, was offered around by Finley at the meetings apparently only as a tease. Finley, who has a $3.5 million lawsuit pending against Baseball Commissioner Bowie Kuhn for voiding his million-dollar sales of Blue, Joe Rudi and Rollie Fingers, >told the Red Sox they could have Blue for $2 million.

Morland Slips By Grinnell GRINNELL- In a nip-and- tuck Liberty League contest Friday night, the Morland 'Tigers nipped the Grinnell Warriors, 60-59. A couple of fine shoooting •performances were turned in ' by GrinnelPs John Rehmer and Morland's Mark Paul. Together the pair tallied 61 points as Rehmer had 32 and Paul 29' The output by Rehmer had to be a pleasant surprise for coach Tom Barta. Rehmer tallied only six in the Warriors' opening game.

(UPI) — An interception by Less Leininger midway through the fourth quarter blunted an Akron rally Saturday and the resulting seven-yard scoring run by Tom Kostrba clinched a 24-13 Pioneer Bowl victory for Montana State, giving the Bobcats the NCAA Division 2 championship. Montana State dominated the opening half with its running game — tops in Division 2 — but had to fight off a second half turnover bug that threatened to wipe out a 17-point lead. Although the Bobcats controlled the ball through the running of Kostrba, Delmar Jones and Don Ueland, their first half scoring plays both came on passes. Quarterback Paul Dennehy hit tight end Ron McCullough with a five-yard touchdown throw and Ueland lobbed a three-yard halfback pass to Butch Damberger to give Montana State a 14-0 halftime advantage. Jeff Muri added a 21-yard field goal for the Bobcats early in the third quarter, but in quick succession a fumble by Kostrba and an interception thrown by Dennehy gave Akron a chance to get back in the game. Following Kostrba's fumble Akron scored on a three-yard run by fullback Dave Axner and after the interception quarterback Martin Bez- batchenko found Glenn Evans with a 22-yard scoring pass to reduce the deficit for 17-13. Akron got the ball again in its own end of the field with eight minutes to work with in the final quarter, but on third- andten from his own 43 Bez- batchenko threw a desperation screen pass that Leininger picked off. From the Akron 34, Montana State used only six plays before Kostrba's clinching touchdown. Montana State, which had edged North Dakota State last week to make the finals, finished 11-1.
