Baseball Commissioner ,F° r d Prick said "definitely not" when asked whether the club owners were considering maximum salaries, If forced to raise the minimum, and club owners declined to comment. But a high official (not a club owner) said "maximum" was the key word In the statement issued after a Joint meeting of the American and National leagues Saturday. Approve Review The leagues reaffirmed the decision of last December in keeping the minimum salary at 56,000. But they approved the appointment of two three-man committees from each league to meet with the 16 player representatives "to review the present league salary structure and ascertain whether the present minimum and unlimited maximum standards are equitable." "Very definitely the owners hod maximum salaries in mind when they made that statement," said the official, who asked that his name not be used. "It is only natural that if the owners are forced to raise the minimum that they'll look to save money by cutting down on the maximums. That's business." The National League committee coreists of John Galbreath of Pittsburgh, Dick Meyer of St. Louis and Joe Cairnes of Milwaukee. The American League group includes Tom Yawkey of Boston, Walter (Spike) Briggs of Detroit and Hank Oreenberg of Cleveland. Players Gratified , Nothing is expected to be resolved before the season opens in April. But Commissioner Prick said he expects the meetings to be held "shortly after the season opening." Bobby Feller of Cleveland and Robin Roberts ol Philadelphia, *league player representatives, said they were "gratified" that the owners had tak;n constructive action on their request. But Feller and Roberts said their attorney will ascertain the "precise meaning" of the owners program so that all details may be considered when the 16 player representatives get together in Tampa, probably March 7.
