A fellow worker threw young Nicholson to the ground and ripped his flaming clothes off. But 65 per cent of the youth's body nevertheless suffered third- degree burns and another 20 per cent eceived lesse burns. .'.The coaches' plaque marked the end of nearly three years of struggle by Nicholson to recover, from a situation doctors felt was almost hopeless. In the first 7C days at the Srfine Burn Center in Texas the youth lost 50 pounds. He admits his will to live waned. I ' He was a football player his pulled me through. I couldn't have lasted it out coming from any other town than Meeteetse.'' His recovery has been faster than expected. And although doctors caution young Nicholson against football, he played briefly for Meeteelse in lhe stale prep basketball tournament in Laramie last March and last weekend went to the state track meet in Lander. Skin grafts and plastic surgery are still being performed to correct burn injuries, but Nicholson said the pain has abated. "Everything is beautiful," he said.

Citing the reserve clause as 'obsolete and antiquated" Greenberg said the sport "definitely needs a change to help cement relations between the players and the owners. It also would give a better image for the public so the game can prosper and flourish." Greenberg, who also talks from front office experience as a one-lime part-owtier of fwo different clubs, said the reserve clause--actually the option renewal clause--was "a unilateral contract in which the player has no choice but to accept terms because he can't play elsewhere." Greenberg suggested the clause be eliminated and replaced by a provision that only bound a player to a club for a certain number of years. He said it could be accomplished by owner-player negotiation. "I would prefer the owners would change It of their own volition." Robinson, as provocative as when he was a player, characterized the reserve clause as "one-sided in favor of the owners" and said if it was not modified it would lead to a strike by (he players. "Anything lhat is one-sided in this country is wrong," Robinson said, "the reserve clause is one-sided in favor of the owners. It is so one-sided that the players don't really have control over their own destiny." Notional 'both ;steaks."

Then in the ninth inning he slammed a two-run homer and received a fine ovation but the Phils managed a ninth inning run to nip the Cards 4-3. McGlothlin, the right-hander obtained by Cincinnati over the winter from the California Angels, registered his second consecutive shutout, a two-hit blanking of Houston in the Reds 3-0 triumph. In the only other National League Contests, Montreal edged Pittsburgh 7-6 and Los Angeles stopped Atlanta G-3. In American League play, New York blanked Washington 2-0, Cleveland pounded Boston 10-7 and Detroit and Baltimore split a twi-night doubleheader, the Tigers winning the opener 6-4 and the Orioles the nightcap, 3-1. Banners welcoming Allen, familiar with the so-called "boo birds," who flocked to see him play when he was with the Phils, hung from the upper deck with inscriptions such as: VA1- len MVP," Albright College Loves Richie" and "Show them what you can do, Richie." As for the booing from the 11,869 fans, Allen said he didn't mind it. "I'm used to that." His home run didn't especially please him either. "I've done it before," he said. "The main thing is winning." Allen's two-run belt--his 14th Woodie Fryman and pinch hitter Joe Hague's single tied it he- fore Tony Taylor won it for the Phils with his ninth inning run- scoring single. Cards' stater Steve Carllon. who struck out 16 before leaving in the ninth for a pinch hitter blamed himself as the Phils struck for three runs in the fifth, two on Don Money's two- run homer. McGlothlin, 5-3, who had blanked Atlanta last Saturday, was nicked for an infield single by Joe Morgan is the first inning and a fourth inning lier to right by Jesus Ainu. He only walked two and didn't strike out any Astros. He was also helped by a pair of double plays and didn't permit a Houston runner past first. All the support he needed came when Johnny Bench stroked a solo homer in the fourth, his 13th of the year. "I'm concentrating more this year and I think that has helped me," said the 26-year-old who was 8-16 with (he Angels last year after a 12-8 season in 1968. McGlothlin will try lo malch his .1967 feat of three straight shutouts in his next start. In that season, McGlothlin blanked Washington, Baltimore and Chicago. Coco Laboy's bases-loaded single with one out in the ninth helped give Bill Dillman his first victory as an Expo.
