HAYS DAILY NEWS PA(!K !) December 24, 1978 Money Changes Jeffs Mind By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Editor NEW YORK (UPI)-If Jeff Burroughs wasn't in baseball, you might see him in the magazine ads, the ones showing you some rugged, outdoor heman type fly- casting in a mountain stream or taking time out from rounding up cattle to light up a cigarette. Jeff Burroughs is a fine young man, clean-cut, well- intentioned and sufficiently talented so that he received $88,000 for signing with the Washington Senators seven may you share the wondrous tidings of this Holy Season. > Merry Christmas and sincerest thanks. ROTH ELECTRONICS 700 E. 8th Hays years ago and considerably more than that for playing right field this year for the Texas Rangers. The big, 25-year-old Long Beach, Calif., long-bailer has one big drawback. He sometimes gets a little foggy, rather confused. He'll get his meal money, begin talking to someone, lay the money down on a table, and then walk away absentmindedly. .Or he'll put his paycheck in his suitcase and forget all about it, which he has done; Maybe Jeff Burroughs does things like this because he has so much on his mind and he's too preoccupied. Whatever the reason, he couldn't figure out that six-player deal of two weeks back where the Rangers wrapped him up in a nice fancy ribbon and sent him to the Atlanta Braves for Ken Henderson, Carl Morton, Roger Moret, Dave May and Adrian Devine plus $250,000 in cash. ' Burroughs announced it wasn't a deal at all because there was a no-trade clause in his contract. "The deal's off," he said. For some reason, he was convinced he had the final word to decide whether a trade stood or not. Why does he think Charlie Finley has Bowie Kuhn in Federal Court in Chicago now? Finley says even the commissioner of baseball has no right to knock out a deal. If Burroughs, not even a 10-and-5 man,.chose not to report to Atlanta, that was one thing, but calling off the whole deal was something entirely out of his hands. He got a little confused there. Then there was the matter of his contract with the Rangers. More confusion, all on Burroughs' part. He explained the reason he didn't really have to go to Atlanta was because of that notrade clause in his contract. GIRLS AND BOYS YOUR OWN MONEY! YOUR OWN BUSINESS! PRIZES TOO!

MOOSE GOES;.. ..THEN YOU WEEL GET SHORT PATIONS, THE REST OF THE WINTER.', There is no such clause in Burroughs' contract, While all this back-and-forth was going on, Ted Turner, the Braves' one-of-a-kind owner, was getting a bit overheated himself. If Burroughs was so dead set against coming to Atlanta, let him go fly-casting or roifnding up cattle somewhere. Turner didn't want him any more and Texas could keep him. I can't blame the Braves' owner for that. He grew even hotter when he discovered Burroughs and Rangers' owner Brad Corbett had hopped over to Las Vegas in a jet last Tuesday night before Burroughs was scheduled to show up in Atlanta for a Wednesday press conference, which he never did. Burroughs had a great year for the Rangers in 1974 when he ran away with the American League's MVP award after finishing with 118 runs batted in, 25 homers and a .301 batting average. But he nose-dived to .226 in 1975 and this past year he suddenly become a defensive hitter. The Rangers felt Burroughs •was spinning his wheels in Arlington Stadium, where the wind whipping in from left field unquestionably cut down on his home-run production. Burroughs never professed any unusual passion for playing in Arlington but now, after being traded to the' Braves, suddenly he fell head over heels in love with Te 9nnagain. He didn't want to leave for money. Ah, money. ' Burroughs bridled when it was suggested in print that was what he essentially was after in kicking up such a fuss over going to Atlanta. "Whoever would report something like that really has no idea what they're doing," said the outfielder. "I did not arrange this trade thing. I'm the innocent party. People write things that are completely erroneous." Oh, sure. All I know is it certainly didn't take Burroughs' lawyer long at all to get into the picture. And I'm sure all he talked to Ted Turner about was the weather in Atlanta. Apparently everything is okay now. Burroughs is coming to Atlanta the first week, in January. What do you imagine was responsible for such an overnight miracle? Money? Now why would you ever say a thing like that?

Minnesota freshman Kevin Mcllnle scored the first eight Gopher points of the second half during a period when Williams was rested with a pulled hamstring muscle.
