What's the connection? Maneff is a direct--although somewhat detoured --descendant of the Macedonian empire builder. Not since last year's visit of General Dwight Eisenhower has the Angels' training camp been honored by the presence of such a distinguished dignitary. Maneff, however, is here to work. There are BO emissaries to his court--only, perhaps, a wayward writer. Maneff, a 20-year old rghthanded pitcher who only two years ago was an outfielder at Pierce JC, admits the lineage to Alex- ander has more than its share of dips. "I'm the 35th removed something or other," says Maneff. "My father came from Yugoslavia and his father's father's uncle was in the direct line from Alexander." Chris has yet to conquer any worlds, but he's doing his best to explore the tense one in which he lives. Like the Angels' Russian- speaking Rick Evans, Ma- neffs interests are varied, his mind is quick and his talents appreciable. He will register at UCLA next fall to continue studies in psychology. "I like people and I want to know what makes them run." His hobby is collecting Danish modern furniture. "Nice things have always appealed to me.
