The jury recommended life imprisonment after a night of deliberation which ended at 5:05 a.m. The prosecution had asked for the death penalty for the knife slaying of Reeds aunt last November.

The general impres- Congressmon Says Anti-Trust Laws Would Hurt Baseball WASHINGTON (UPJ—A Florida congressman who once was both a baseball player and official said today that pulling the sport under anli-trusl regulation would cause "perhaps irreparable injury to the great American game." Democratic Rop. A. S. Merloni; Jr. made the statemcnl in testimony prepared for a House judiciary subcommittee which is studying the anti-trust status of professional sports. Baseball Commissionor Ford C. Frick and major league President George M. Trautman also were scheduled to teslify loday. They too were ready lo go lo bal for continued exemption of baseball from federal anti-trust laws. Herlong, a former minor league •official and one-time "good field- '•'(. no hit" first baseman in the minors, said blanketing baseball under anti-trust laws could result in "abolition or substantial limitation" of baseball's reserve clause. Under Ihe reserve clause, a player must stick with the team sion was thai he did. This illusion, plus his managerial success afield, was enough to inflate and feed Ihe long-hungry Stengel ego. Bui when Ihe Yankees swapped off Billy Martin to Kansas City in a four-for-three deal the window dressing was ripped aside. Martin was Casey's "boy." Stengel had him at Oakland and brought him up to the Yankees. He had a vast, unconcealed ad- fielcler Willie Mays of the Giants right fielder Hank Aaron of the Braves, and calcher Ed Bailey of the Redlegs.

The Final Payment The recent fistic floor show at the Copacabana would have been shrugged off by Stengel. But it was the final payment on a ticket west for Martin as far as Weiss was concerned. "Uncle George" long lias considered Martin a bad influence on Mickey Mantle, once ordering Ihcm to steer clear ot the downtown lights. So when Martin was labeled as one of the instigators in the Copa clash, Weiss took matters into his own hands—as usual. Stengel didn't have much lo say about the trade. But he indicated wasn't his handiwork, nor that had his approval.
