Veeck arrived Saturday and placed the ailing Don Sim A principal duty as lieutenant to Rigney, Veeck admits, is to stir up interest in White Sox ticket sales, which now are as far behind as the ball club was the first six weeks of last season.

Veeck already has started a sales "campaign. He has made six speeches in the Chicago area and has 90 more scheduled, with as many as three scheduled for some days. WHEN Veeck owned Milwaukee's minor league team during World War he scheduled morning games for defense workers and garnished these games with free breakfasts. As chief of the Cleveland -Indians, he hired baby sitters to lure mothers to the games. At St.

Louis, Veeck placed Eddie Gaedel, a midget, in the lineup. From Milwaukee to Cleveland to St. Louis, he had a million gimmicks. Some were zany, most were fine merchandising ideas. So what is in store for Chicagoans if Veeck, as expected, becomes front office chief? "I'll be making speeches all over our area, roughly from Minnesota to Florida," said Veeck Speeches are good promotion.

From past experience I know that in areas where I speak the ticket sales run 6 to 1 over those areas I don't visit. The psychology is that if the place visited isn't too far for me to go to, then my ball park isn't too far away for the citizens of the town I'm visiting. "There'll be more than speeches. I've been out of baseball for five years, and in five years you can have lots of promotional ideas. I wrote 'em down; thirty pages of 'em now! ALTHO Veeck says "let's wait" when asked directly, there's one headline promotional stunt he won't deny he's aching to try with the White Sox.
