Bill Veeck Chicago Tribune Press Service , TAIPA, FLA., March 22 Bill Veeck made 54 of a triumphal entry into Tampa on Saturday afternoon. , By custom, the Veeck collar was open. Contrary to custom, the Veeck lips were'closed and since a speechless Veeck is a wonder not often beheld, there quickly was de mand to know why the question of how he intends to operate the Chicago White r Sox should make him clam up like a parake'et with laryngitis. Veeck discreetly responded that he will make no statements on White Sox policy until he teams up his 54 stock interest with Vice President -Chuck Comiskey and Chuck's 46 stock irterest. Until that hour, which Veeck believes imminent, he will operate as a lieutenant on the staff of John Rigney, the other White Sox vice president. 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 n, 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? , x "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. That's to take the club to Japan for spring training. Modern jet air transportation would make the project a simple one. The White Sox would do preliminary train ing in Honolulu, then play exhibitions against an all-star Japanese team flown from Nippon. The Sox and all-stars would then fly back to Japan for more exhibitions, with Chicago pausing in Honolulu and west coast cities on the return home. ... Sunday Veeck said: " Stick around ... well all have some fun. ..."

Veeck Drop Around Chicaio Tribune Press Serrke Tampa, March 22 Vice President Charles Chuck Comiskey, and Bill Veeck, the rival who has bought 54 per cent of the Chicago White Sox stock, sat together for two innings on this warm Sunday afternoon and finally agreed on one item: That Lefty Billy Pierce, who worked the first portion of an exhibition with the Reds, is a wonderful pitcher. There was an outward ap pearance of congeniality as the two men, struggling for control of the White Sox, met for the first time in camp. Veeck arrived Saturday and attended, the Reds-Sox duel Saturday in St. Petersburg. Chuck Talks Trades Veeck, who refused to make any statement concern ing operation of the White Sox, was scheduled to fly back to Chicago Sunday night Comiskey said he had talked to Manager Al Lopez on several trade possibilities and that they would explore other possibilities, because Chuck intends to remain here until the end of training. Who is running the White Sox now? Chuck, a vice presi dent and holder of 46 per cent nf the stock, tapped his chest and said: "Me." He said he would make no comment pending further court action that seeks to restrain Veeck from taking over active control. Chuck's attitude on Veeck's first Visit to the Sox camp?

Chicago's 22 man squad, composed of champions and alternates from 12 of the 32 cities that were represented in the Tournament of Champions three weeks ago in Chi cago Stadium, has just about reached its peak in condition and no problems have arisen either in mental attitude or making proper weight. .
